Horizon Forbidden West The Enduring Errand Walkthrough

To help you out with completing “The Enduring” errand in Horizon Forbidden West, we’ve prepared this guide where we’ll be showing you exactly what you need to do to complete this errand in HFW.

Horizon Forbidden West The Enduring Errand

The Enduring errand in HFW can be obtained from the Pit Master Odurg. You can find him at the Melee Pit in Chainscrape.

But before you speak to the pit Master Odurg, you need to have taken down the other Pit Masters from The Bulwark, Thornmarsh, and Scalding Spear. Once you’ve defeated all three and earned their Marks, only then will you be able to run this errand.

Melee Pits are practice areas with timed challenges where you have to perform certain combos to pass. To finish the Melee Pit, you need to perform all of the combos and then defeat the Pit Master to get their mark.

Search for The Enduring

Now once you’ve defeated all three Pit Masters, it’s time for you to go find The Enduring, a legendary Tenakth master.

Head to the mountains to the north of Scalding Spear. Inside the mountain, you’ll find the training pit of The Enduring, but she will not be there.

To the east of the pit, you’ll see some smoke. Head towards the smoke to find a camp where you’ll find The Enduring resting.

Wait for The Enduring to wake up and then talk to her. Then, go back to the training pit and prepare to fight Azurekka, The Enduring.

The Enduring Fight

For a woman her age, Azurekka is extremely strong and agile. Her melee and ranged attacks deal high damage, and she uses Smoke Bombs to mask her location.

Azurekka does not take much damage from arrows, so you’ll need to fight her with melee attacks. Use the melee combos you’ve learned up till this point. The best ones to use are the ones that end with a Resonater Blast.

Do note that Azurekka can easily interrupt your combos, so your combos will have to be at the perfect time.

Bait out attacks from Azurekka, dodge them, then punish them with combos of your own. You can also stun Azurekka by shooting the four Smoke Drums present around the pit.

Once you’ve defeated The Enduring, she will modify your spear as a reward, giving it +1 Spear Damage, and you will also gain 6500 XP and +3 Skill Points.
