Once the dialogue is over, you need to look for seven clues spread across the village to solve the mystery behind the disappearance of the villagers. The best way to get through these clues is using your Eagle Vision. The clues will be highlighted in red or orange, and as you approach them, you will get the chance to interact with them. 

  1. Go down the steps behind the man to find your first clue: a dead body.

My Opinion On The Abandoned Village Tale

There are many Tales of Baghdad in the game, but in my experience, the one in Abandoned Village is relatively easier as the clues are in one spot. Certain other tales require you to go quite far from the starting area, which makes it harder to complete. If you find such quests interesting, I’d recommend checking out Solve this Problem Quickly for me and the Harbiyah Engimas to get a similar experience. 

With that, you know all about the Abandoned Village and how to solve the mystery. It is an interesting Tale of Baghdad that has you searching for clues to figure out what happened to the villagers. While you’re already exploring, you should check out the Bazaar Chest or my guide on The Calling Quest.
