Fortnite has rolled out its Week 11 quests, giving players a fresh batch of tasks to complete in exchange for sizable chunks of XP. One of the latest quests has players take on a seemingly random task in placing a spirit crystal at the tallest mountain on the entire island.
Despite the verbiage of this particular quest, players won't have to first acquire the previously mentioned crystal or anything like that beforehand. Crystals have been featured before in an earlier quest this season, with players needing to strike three resonant crystals at The Spire a few weeks ago, a task with the same mysterious lack of context.
Placing a spirit crystal at the tallest mountain in Fortnite is quite the straightforward task, but only if players are aware of where that tallest mountain actually is. As it currently stands in Season 6, the Mount Kay POI is not only the tallest mountain on the island but the highest elevation point on the entire map. Mount Kay, for those unaware, is the snow-covered mountain situated in the southeast corner of the current island, specifically the highest peak.
To complete the quest, all players need to do is either land or ascend to the top, which will be easily visible from the red flag marker, and press the interact button on the nearby space.
Once the crystal has been placed and the quest completed, players can begin to tackle another one of Week 11's quests nearby. Located near the other end of the snowy mountain range is Brutus' Basin, the former Shadow base that is one half of the quest to visit Ghost and Shadow ruins. Having seemingly no overt context like the spirit crystal quest, fans are beginning to wildly speculate that the secret rival organizations, as well as crystals, may hold some sort of undisclosed significance to furthering Fortnite's ongoing storyline.
Another theory regarding the purpose of the spirit crystal fans are coming up with is the incoming Season 7 possibly introducing Crystal weapons. An upgrade tier introduced in Fortnite's lesser-played Save the World mode, shifting the Battle Royale's weapon crafting system from makeshift and primal-type weapons to something different would be a sensible move. It's long been rumored that the next season will be essentially the inverse to the current one, and will feature a futuristic/alien theme, something the ethereal crystals would be well-suited for.
In this week's gaming news recap, Blizzard announces major balance changes coming in Overwatch 2, while Destiny 2 Guardians compete for the Vault of Glass Raid race. Game Rant has compiled some of the biggest gaming news stories from this past week together into a concise post for fans and enthusiasts to stay up to date on the most important events in the industry per week. Highlighting the most relevant stories, this list is not inherently and totally objective, and will not contain every news story this week. Rather, this is intended for gaming fans who want a quick rundown on the largest/most impactful stories that occurred in the last week in games.
Whatever the case may be, hidden meaning or not, this quest can be done very quickly if players know where to drop in. With just a few weeks left before Season 6 ends, some players may have reached levels that render additional quests largely pointless. However, Fortnite is rolling out more than just quests this week, as the NBA crossover event has now spread to Creative, offering players an all-new basketball LTM.
