Infestation is a fathom quest in Torment: Tides of Numenera.


Fragments left behind by the Sorrow's incursion have wormed their way deep into the Labyrinth. Like plagues in my mind, they are stunting my potential.


  • This quest begins immediately after you reclaim the Clock Fathom. Enter the Sorrow's Fathom and confront the Sorrow fragments. You can do it directly, by summoning your companions as Reflections, or use the machines to bait and trap the sorrow fragments.
  • The machines can by activated using Icon Intellect small.png Intellect (Lore: Machinery) to expunge the Sorrow fragments. Then you need to either wipe them out or trap them again. Trapping them is the most cost-effective, although you need to ensure they are in range of the tidal pulse when it's unleashed.
