This Witch Queen guide will assist you with the Memories of Ruin Quest as part of The Witch Queen Campaign. Now, we are going to share tips on how to solve the Memories of Ruin puzzle located within the Altar of Reflection.
Locating the Altar of Reflection
The Memories of Ruin quest is eighth step of The Witch Queen Campaign that you are going to unlock after completing The Lightblade Strike as part of the story. To begin, you will need to travel back to the Altar of Reflection first uncovered during The Mirror mission.
Travel to the Throne World, and you are going to find the mission is marked on your map. Then, travel back through The Miasma until you get the mirror at the end of the bridge. Please interact with it to be transported back to the Altar of Reflection.
How to Complete the “Memories of Ruin” Puzzle?
After you begin the Memories of Ruin Quest, you are going to be teleported inside the Altar of Reflection. Just straight ahead, there is a puzzle for you to solve marked with Hive runes. The arrangement of those runes is different for every player, so everyone’s solution is different.
Keep in mind that the key to solve The Odd One challenge is to identify three Hive runes which are out of place. They are arranged into 8 groups, with each column containing 5 runes. Three of those columns are going to have an outlier which does not fit with the rest of the pattern. In this example, the pattern appeared to be a T-shaped rune in the top slot with 4 O-shaped runes beneath it.
The second column from the left has an A-shaped rune in the top most slot, then the fourth column has the T-shaped column further down than it must be. And the final column on the right has an A-shaped column in the 4th slot.
You have to shoot the incorrect rune with your weapon to begin completing the puzzle. After shooting the correct rune, then a glowing green Hive symbol is going to appear above the puzzle, indicating that you created the correct choice. If you shoot the wrong rune, the message state that the trial begins again will be display to the left of your screen. Then, you need to start over.
Need to know that several weapons are not ideal for this puzzle. The weapons with any kind of splash or explosive damage (including the perks such as explosive head) are going to trigger multiple runes at once and then cause the puzzle to fail automatically. So, you have to stick to single-shot weapons if possible. After completing the puzzle, the door behind is going to open, revealing the next area. Please go inside and beat the Lucent Archivist opponents within the large room. After defeated, you are able to go through the doorway at the back of the room and also interact with the memory in the center to solve this step of the Quest.
How to Complete the Memories of Loss?
The Memories of Loss Quest is part of The Witch Queen Campaign that you are going to unlock after completing The Last Chance mission as part of the story. To begin, you will need to travel back to the Altar of Reflection in Witch’s Echo. For your information, the recommended Power level for the Quest is 1490.
When inside, you are going to see a familiar Hive rune puzzle which you will need to complete. Like before, the key to completing the Rune Patterns puzzles is to look for a pattern. After that, you have to locate the runes that do not follow the pattern. Remember that runes are arranged in groups of five, seen vertically. The first puzzle features 8 columns, with three columns having arranged runes incorrectly. Please shoot the column with the incorrect set of runes. A bug glowing Hive rune will spawn in the air above, signifying a correct answer. If you shoot the wrong rune, the message state that the trial begins again will be display to the left of your screen. Then, you need to start over.
The second set of puzzles will add more columns around the room for you to solve. The rules remain the same, as you are still looking for the three columns with a pattern of runes which do not match the rest of the bunch. The runes are in the groups of three located around the circular structures in the area. After the second puzzle is complete, you have to go into the doorway and proceed into the next area where you will need to defeat the Lucent Archivist enemies. As with your previous encounter, there is a big boss opponent at the end. At this time, you are going to be dealing with Xirash, Keeper of Memory.
Once the opponents have been eliminated, just proceed into the memory chamber and interact with the central structure to learn some interesting information before the Quest step is completed. For your information, the next several Quest steps of The Witch Queen Campaign involve meeting with the Vanguard, flying to the Tower, and chatting with Ikora and the gang at the Enclave on Mars. After several conversations, you are going to unlock The Ritual.
You have to find three out of the place rune sequences for completing the Rune Patterns and continue with the altar mission path. When you enter into Memories of Ruin mission location, you are going to notice a low altar with eight slabs, each bearing five runes. Five of the slabs are going to have the same rune sequence, however three will be unique. Every player has a distinct experience with the three weird slabs, with one or more runes out of the place. In any event, to finish this Memories of Ruin issue, just fire the three strange slabs. You are going to restart the sequence if you blast a wrong slab, so utilize a precision weapon to fire them. There is no explosive shots or high-recoil auto guns.
