Tips and Misc

Walkthrough

  • Talk to Mother Ashira. You'll be allowed into the monastery to explore; however, several important doors will be blocked by vines.
  • Head east past the Courtyard to the Rose Chamber.
    • The Serene Fountain (and its destroyed counterpart in reality) applies Feather Fall and +30 Jump. Grab these buffs if you don't have them already, as there's about to be a fairly tricky jumping section.
  • Puzzle solution
    Solve the puzzle and (using the Rose Prayer Altar) return to Reality.
  • Defeat the Quori ambush (Twilight Chamber) and head westwards to the Courtyard.
  • After climbing back up to the top of the Courtyard, go south past the Library and return to your Dream at the Altar of Chaos.
  • Go north past the Refectory and return to Reality at the Altar of Faith.
  • Go south and take the first door on the left (east) after going through the Refectory again. (You can also open the door to the Courtyard which will help latecomers catch up.)
  • Climb up the stones (footholds and handholds) on the wall to the Dormitory.
  • Jump across the Courtyard and grab the crest of the Bat.
  • Go through the (east) door next to the Bat Crest, past the Balneary and return to your Dream at the Altar of Fear.
  • Grab the crest of the Monkey and go past the Balneary.
  • Jump across the Courtyard and use the crests to open the Raven Door, then go down the hall and return to Reality at the Altar of Peace.
    • There is a Secret door (Secret Door DC) on the west side of the room with the Altar, containing a chest. Note that this is only accessible on the Dream side.
      • This room also contains an NPC version of the dread Vorpal Chipmunk. Fortunately, Hyrsam's magic seems to have worn off, and the oversized rodent is now docile.
  • Head south and return to your Dream at the Altar of Storms. (You can also open the door to the Courtyard which will help latecomers catch up.)
  • Choose between the two trials:
    • Trial of Might (South, grants a chest): Go past the Ritual of Might and return to Reality, then complete the Ritual of Might by battling the Sleepwalker and Floofersnout to dispel the barrier above the Chapel. Go north past the Altar of Storms, then west to jump down into the Chapel.
      • There is a red-named Quori crystal in this chamber which is amplifying the Eye's control over the sleepwalker. If you smash the crystal before hurting the Sleepwalker, he wakes up for a few seconds, and you have a short opportunity to talk him down with a skill check (attaining the "Incapacitate the Sleepwalker" optional.) After this, he attacks you anyway.
    • Trial of Mind (West): Complete a floor tile puzzle to dispel the barrier above the Chapel, then return to Reality at the Altar of Calm. Go north then west to jump down into the Chapel.
  • Complete the fight with the statues and elementals to complete the quest.
