- "My next star turn is that of the legendary knight, Sokrath. Yet alas, he is mentioned only in a few ancient passages, and described in none..." —Ardent Actor
Performance Art is a side story in Octopath Traveler. It is activated by speaking with the Ardent Actor outside the Provisioner store in Everhold.
Travel to Grandport Markets in Grandport. Use the Purchase/Steal Path Action to obtain the Sword of Sokrath from the Creepy Antiquarian, located in the northwest corner.
The story ends once the Sword of Sokrath is given to the Ardent Actor.
With upon sword, the actor was able to truly channel the spirit of the part during rehearsal.
Alternatively, travel to Atlasdam Palace Gate in Atlasdam. Use the Inquire/Scrutinize Path Action to glean Song of Sokrath from the Handsome Minstrel, located near the Royal Academy entrance.
The story ends once the Song of Sokrath is shared with the Ardent Actor.
Inspired by the Song of Sokrath, the actor immersed himself in the role and resolved to fast - just like the hero.
