As you journey through Lost Ark, you will want the Forest’s Minuet song, which allows you to open paths along the way. To get the Forest’s Minuet, you have to complete a specific time-gated quest that also requires a different song. Our Lost Ark Forest’s Minuet guide explains how to get the Forest’s Minuet quest, find the hidden fairy, and open the secret area.

What are prerequisites to get the Forest’s Minuet?

To get the Forest’s Minuet song, you’ll need to complete the chain quest that begins with “The Forest Where Fairies Sing.” To do this, you need the following:

  • Your character needs to be at least level 50.
  • Sailing access to Lullaby Island.
  • The song “Song of Resonance.”

Some players in public game chat have noted that you do not need the song as long as other people in your party have it, but we have not been able to confirm this. While lots of players gather to complete the co-op part of this quest together at the time of writing this, if you are trying to get the Forest’s Minuet down the line, you may need to do the quest alone. In that case, you will absolutely need the Song of Resonance.

Where to get the Song of Resonance

You will need to purchase the Song of Resonance from Treasure Hunter Igran on the Peyto cruise ship. Sail there, head upstairs, and buy the song for 16,500 Pirate Coins.

If you are in need of Pirate Coins, you can complete quests on small islands like Freedom Isle to get them.

Where to start the Forest’s Minuet quest chain

Provided that you’re level 50, you will be able to accept the quest chain from Traveler Eclipse on Lullaby Island. We’ve marked her location below.

Where to find the hidden fairy

As part of the quest chain, you’ll need to find the hidden fairy on Lullaby Island and talk to her in a way she likes. We’ve marked the three locations you find her in order below.

You’ll need to reply to her correctly in order to proceed in the quest, but worry not — if you don’t answer correctly, there’s no punishment. You’ll just need to start the dialogue over again. If you don’t want to go through all that, here’s the correct replies:

“The Forests Where Faeries Sing” Fairy conversation answers

  1. (Whistle.)
  2. (Wait.)
  3. (Whistle again.)

“I Can Hear You” Fairy conversation answers

  1. (Put down the shiny pebble.)
  2. Remember me?
  3. It’s a gift.
  4. (Wait quietly.)

“It’s Okay, Miss Fairy” Fairy conversation answers

  1. (Just watch.)
  2. Listen with your back to her.)
  3. I’m listening.
  4. I’ll look for one.
  5. Sure.
  6. No worries. I’m an adventurer.

Finding the Lullaby Island secret area

The secret area on Lullaby Island that you need to access to complete the quest is actually blatantly marked on your map with the silver hands symbol. Hovering your mouse over it will give you a countdown until the area will open.

It opens every other hour on approximately the 20th minute, and you will need to head to this area three times to get three Voices of the Forest, which means it’ll take at least four hours to actually complete this quest chain.

When the area opens up, you will be prompted to play the Song of Resonance twice. Once you do this, a tree will blossom and you’ll get one Voice of the Forest for the “It’s Okay, Miss Fairy” quest.

Because of the timer associated with the quest, we recommend setting Lullaby Island as one of your Biofrost locations, so you can quickly teleport back to the island without having to sail when it’s time to enter the secret area.
