  1. Head over to Phoenix Falls as if you were going to the Phoenix Shrine. Instead of turning right, head straight and you will come to a large brass door that is broken.

Dialogue and Mail


Letter from Jina

Dear (Player),
I've been doing a lot of digging on the Flow battery you found.

Humans used to use these to power all sorts of things...

You know, there's this old door under the waterfall that I've been trying to open. It's just a little ways past the shrine we first met at. I've tried all sorts of things to get it open. Maybe this battery could be the key...

Why don't you give it a try? This place used to belong to your people after all. You really should be the first one to check it out.

Upon speaking to Jina about the mysterious chamber

You actually did it! I heard the rumbling and came running.
This place is amazing! It must've been some kind of temple...
Can you actually read the carvings on the walls? This is ancient Human writing!
Actually, no. That makes perfect sense. You're a Human. Of course you can read your own language!
You scout ahead, Hekla and I will survey this room to see what we can learn.

Upon speaking to Hekla

You ok? You seem quiet.
We should not be here...
Especially not Jina.
What? Why?
This... this is a sad place.
I am prohibited from saying more at this time.
I am sorry. Please do not ask me any more questions.


Upon returning to Jina

I found something up ahead...
What is it?

A huge cliff...
A cliff? Intriguing... perhaps there was some sort of collapse...

Some big ruins.
A ruin? Intriguing... perhaps this was a temple...

I wouldn't try navigating that area without a glider.
You'll need to speak with Najuma about building you one.
She usually hangs around Bahari Bay.
