After all that, you will find yourself on the ship’s deck, which is sailing through a storm.
After the storm, you will wake up on the beach.
You are immediately attacked by a Corrupted. This fight will be a quick time event, and onscreen prompts will differ depending on your control scheme.
After this quick time event, walk up to interact with Captain Aldous Thorpe.
After speaking with Captain Thorpe, he will then die and disappear.
You need to make your way up the beach, taking out a few of the enemies along the way.
After defeating a few enemies, your weapon mastery will increase. You can then choose to allocate a skill point in the weapon skill tree.
You can always change your skill tree choices later on if needed. After this, you will want to continue ahead, and walk up the mountain. You will be passing gorgeous, and verdant greenery on your way up.
After reaching the top of the mountain, take in the stunningly grand view of Aeternum.
