I am a wanderer by trade, but a minstrel at heart. A keeper of tales, a singer of songs, a preserver of forgotten truths. Yet in defiance of my itinerant nature, I have elected to remain here for a time and compose new works.
You being a traveling sinner, I'm sure you've seen your share of adventures. Such stories often serve as the best sort of inspiration. Perhaps I could persuade you to regale me with one or two?

— In-game description

Minstrel from Another Mother is a level 80 quasi-quest that serves as an unlock method for some extreme-difficulty trials in Shadowbringers. There are no steps to this quest: talking to the questgiver both accepts and completes the quest.

Though the quest is "completed" upon talking to the Minstreling Wanderer, players must go back and talk to him again each time they complete the necessary prerequisites in order to unlock the associated extreme-difficulty encounter.

Note that Ultimate Raid The Epic of Alexander (Ultimate) is unlocked by talking to the Wandering Minstrel in Kugane, and Trial Cinder Drift (Extreme), Trial Castrum Marinum (Extreme), and Trial The Cloud Deck (Extreme) are unlocked by talking to the Warmachina Fanatic in The Lochs. This is presumably because those duties are associated with the Source instead of the First.
