Tips and Misc

Puzzle solution

Walkthrough:

  • Head east past the Courtyard to the Chamber.
  • Solve the puzzle and return to Reality.
  • Defeat the ambush and head 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 Gloom.
  • Go south and take the first door on the left 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 on the wall to the Dormitory.
  • Jump across the Courtyard and grab the crest of the Bat.
  • Go through the 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 Silence.
    • There is a secret door on the west side of the room with the Altar, containing a chest.
  • 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.
    • Trial of Mind (West): Complete a floor tile puzzle to dispel the barrier above the Chapel, then return to Reality at the Altar of Storms. Go north then west to jump down into the Chapel.
  • Complete the fight with the statues and elementals to complete the quest. (There used to be a bug where killing either statue too fast made the quest incompletable, but it was patched out in Update 49 Patch 2.)
