The passage of the quest “Abundance under the sand dunes II”
How to start the quest
It starts automatically immediately after you complete the previous mission in the chain called Abundance Under the Sand Dunes I. If this does not happen, then try to log out of your account, wait 20-30 minutes and re-login.
How to open the door and find energy diamonds
After starting the task, you will first need to head to the place that Azarik told about. It is located in the location of Steel Dunes. If you have not yet opened a teleport in it, then you will have to run there on your own two feet. When you reach the center of the marked area, watch a short cutscene.
After the conversation, enter the ruin golem through his hand. Continue moving up the tunnel using the four leaf symbols. After making your way inside, you will find yourself in front of a locked door – to open it you will need to collect 3 energy diamonds.
First is located right in front of the entrance to the room, and the second one is to the left of the door in a ceramic vase (it is not necessary to clear the sand, since there is nothing under it).
The third is located to the right of the door. You will find it behind a wooden box. After finding all the energy sources, place them in the cells in front of the door. As a result, you will open it and you will be able to go to the central room. Check out the new video.
How to activate the power system of the ruin golem (energy sources)
You will again have to look for energy diamonds. All of them are in the middle ground. The first can be found immediately after entering the main hall, a little ahead. After picking it up, take it to the grate with symbols on the left, and insert it into an empty cell. Behind the doors you will find a second source of energy.
Taking it, take the first diamond from the slot and run to the left side to another grate. Insert two batteries into empty cells at once to open the door and find a third source of energy.
After collecting all three energy diamonds, approach the glowing pipe in the center and jump down to get to the lower level. Now install the energy sources in three metal pillars arranged in a circle. This will launch the giant automaton.
Go into the cockpit and activate the mechanism
Climb up using the elevator (it is activated by the button on the floor). Once at the top, go into the cabin and start the mechanism. Now you can partially control the giant robot.
Aim at any point, and then shoot. After that, a cut-scene will immediately begin. The automaton will not be able to go to the right place, so you will have to check the status of the inside of the machine (just wait 1-2 minutes until a new cutscene starts). The problem seems to be related to the left arm of the ruin golem.
How to activate the power system of the left arm (energy sources)
This time you will need to find 2 energy diamonds. The first is located on the metal bridge to the left of the entrance to the cabin, and the second is a little further on the upper metal platform (their location is shown in the screenshot below).
After finding them, insert the power sources into the columns located on either side of the cockpit. Then return to Azarik and take control of the robot again. You will need to shoot at the point shown on the screen to create a passage.
How to enter the cave through the hand and start the mechanism
Exit the cockpit, turn right and go down to the quest marker . Use the four leaf symbols to speed up. After getting out of the robot, fly into the tunnel made by the golem of the ruins. Along the way, you can activate the teleport on the right side on the ledge.
Continue downhill, entering Bait al-Sukr. After reaching the edge of the cliff, jump down and you will find the pump. Next to it will be a mysterious mechanism that you will need to activate. This will unlock the cube console near the door.
Turn left and run towards the device. Along the way, deal with the molders to unlock an amazing chest. Touch the cube and enter a new spacious room.
Find a way further (puzzle solution)
To open the passage, you will need to perform a series of actions. First, climb the stairs to the second level and deal with the primordial structure. Then hit the rune mechanism twice to disperse the sand and release the mysterious device – activate it.
Next, slide the rune mechanism forward and rotate it towards the pristine monument on the right to clear the sand and unlock the cube console – interact with it to turning off airflow on the wall.
Then activate the second Mystery Mechanism just ahead by collecting the pipeline and removing the Force Barrier.
Now go back down to primordial spark and unlock it. Escort this blue cube to the pillar for a regular chest as a reward.
Go to the right wall, where the statue used to be, and now there is a gaping hole – jump down. On the lower floor, open the amazing chest, deal with the primordial structures and open the door by interacting with the cube. Return to the room where Azarik and Jeht are standing.
Enter the room that was closed by a barrier, and interact with another mysterious mechanism to unlock the cube from the outside – interact with it to open the door.
How to connect the pipeline and open the ancient door
Continue exploring the depths, going down the cave lower and lower. Get to the quest marker in the spacious cave and talk to your companions. You'll need to solve a little pipeline puzzle.
Go up the stairs to the right and enter the room with the barrier. Move the rune mechanism forward and hit it to disperse the sand and release the cube – interact with it to open the door. Enter a new room.
Hit the left rune mechanism three times to unlock the device on the right, and then hit it to free the mysterious mechanism from the sand captivity – activate it. In the end, you will remove the barrier.
Pass into the passage and go down the stairs down and to the left. Deal with the primordial constructs and unlock the primordial spark. Then start following her upstairs and bring her to the monument standing outside. Now interact with the mysterious mechanism to connect the pipeline.
Next, go up the stairs, activating the teleportation point along the way. Reach the quest marker and interact with the cube to open the ancient door.
