Full The Mist Walkthrough

The first time you recover a Gland and come back to Fallgrim you'll notice a thick Fog, as you will now be inside The Mist. The Fallgrim layout won't change, but all enemies will be replaced with Nocteserpers and the frog chests will be unlocked. You will also be able to encounter two Grisha that re-spawn.

Once you come back to the Fallgrim Tower, you'll find a new NPC called Thestus. Thestus can summon or cancel The Mist in exchange for 1 glimpse.

Traveling to another region (such as with the ornate mask) or dying while in the Mist at this point (i.e. while not carrying a Gland) will reset the world state and cancel the Mist.

Each time you recover a Gland, Fallgrim will be covered with The Mist until you speak with The Old Prisoner and deliver the Gland.

The Mist is a great place to farm Glimpses and Tar. There are two Grisha mini-bosses that re-spawn. Defeating them is a great way to acquire both Glimpses and Tar. Defeating Nocteserpers is also a great way to acquire Tar, since they have a chance to drop 1x Bag of Tar.

Trivia & Notes:

If playing on PS5, the sound of the Fallgrim Tower bell will continually chime through the controller speaker, regardless of your distance to the tower. There is no in-game option to disable this, so it can only be turned off by muting the speaker in the controller settings.
