Tunic: Holy Cross Fairy Soul Puzzle Solution

The Fairy Soul puzzle is possibly the lengthiest and most complicated riddle in the game. Solving it will take a lot of time and effort.




One of the most obscure puzzles in Tunic is the Holy Cross Fairy Soul Puzzle. To finish it, you’ll need to gather enough souls from invisible chests around the world. Those chests will only appear if you’ll successfully input a specific code with a d-pad, unique to each location. Those codes can be deduced by observing your surroundings, but some are ludicrously hard to figure out.

To even start the puzzle, you’ll need to first find a specific manual page. It’s located in a cave you can only access using the Laurel Wreath. From the checkpoint in front of the sealed temple, climb the ladder to the right, follow the stairs found on top and turn left again to see the cave. Inside, you’ll find the skeletal merchant and the manual page.

The Patterns

Go to the old house and enter the ruins inside. There, turn right and then left, stopping in front of a huge entrance. Now, open the manual page you’ve found. On the illustration, there should be a door with a specific pattern on it. You’ll need to recreate this pattern using the d-pad – in this case, press down, right, up, left, up and right. Now, pass the entrance to get another manual page.

Now, use the grapple point near the entrance to the sealed temple and go up the nearest ladder, then head left for as long as you can. At the end of the road, there should be a gold door with another pattern on it. This one is up, right, down, left, down, right, up and left. You should get the last manual page.

The First Chest

Now, from the well, pass the gap on the right and pass the wooden bridge a bit farther. Go left until you’ll reach a waterfall. Enter the passage beneath the waterfall to find the Fairy spring, where the souls found by you will gather.

Now, open the last manual page you’ve found to see the pattern to input. Also, notice how it ties with the sparkles on the left of the manual – the pattern “connects” them by drawing the simplest route between each using only straight lines. To find some chests, you’ll need to do the same with some of the objects found in the overworld.

Gathering the Souls

Now, you should be on the lookout for every piece of terrain that seems to form a pattern to input. There are 20 souls to gather, which means twenty spots. There are a few general types of these:

  • Locations with blue tiles on the floor, forming a pattern
  • Locations with rugs that have pattern on them
  • One location in the Eastern Vault with 6 spots with different amounts of candles. You’ll need to stand in the center and press the arrow corresponding with the candle spot, in order from the least amount of candles to the most.
  • Locations with patterns written on the walls (this includes the fairy spring itself)
  • Locations with small white flowers and a pink one. You’ll either need to use the same strategy as with the candles, or draw a pattern connecting the flowers, starting from the pink one.
  • There’s one location with blue tiles that works like the candle one.
  • Location in the quarry with tress that need to be connected, starting with the big one.

Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide

Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.





Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.

In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.

The Sandglass Location

To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.

Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.

From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.

The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge

Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.

First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.

From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.

When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.

From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.

At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.

After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.

Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
