The Stars Are Frozen Toys walkthrough
How to start the quest
It starts automatically immediately after completing the previous mission of the line called “Leave the conversations in the ranks”, where you have to defeat several waves of opponents, and then leave the Serval with his brother Cheetah.
Find the switch to open the door
After passing into the new location Corridor of the vanishing echo, move forward to the quest marker and inspect the ground. Then you will see an echo of Kokoliya and Armor. Go in the same direction as them. Approach the locked grate. Then go back to the mechanism power center (large metal ball) and interact with it.
Unfortunately, the gate still won't open. To do this, you will need to activate four mechanisms (three left) located in the marked area.
How to start all mechanisms
All of them will be shown on your map. True, this location has not yet been studied, so it will be difficult to navigate the map. Next, we will tell you in detail how to get to each of the devices.
First of all, go down the stairs to the right of iron ball and turn right. Below you will find a controller guarded by level 35 enemies. Their vulnerabilities are shown in the screenshot below. After dealing with them, interact with the panel to open the gate leading to the bridge.
Automaton Bumblebee (mystery)
After passing through the gate, on the left you will find a broken robot, which is not necessary to repair. To repair, you need to solve the puzzle with magnetic modules. The correct option is shown in the screenshot below. After repairing the automaton, start following him, however at this stage you will not be able to go further. You will be able to follow the car when you go to the second mechanism. At the end of the path you will find a valuable chest.
After reaching the middle of the gear-shaped bridge, turn right to the next boiler. It will be guarded by a group of level 35 monsters. The vulnerabilities are shown in the picture below. After dealing with opponents, activate the mechanism.
Now approach the controller near the dimensional anchor and turn it counterclockwise once to move the bridge in the right direction. Then again go to the middle of the bridge and turn right into the new area.
Crossing over to the other side, you will find your first portal leading to the Cave of Corrosion. We are talking about special tests that allow you to get various relics. There is no need to visit now. Run to the right and you'll find the next group of level 35 monsters.
Once you've dealt with the enemies, activate the second mechanism and chat with your friends again.
Getting to it will be the most difficult. First, roll to the right of the second device and interact with the console to open the lattice gate. As a result, you will return to the first mechanism.
Approach the controller and turn the bridge counterclockwise once. Return to the alley where the portal to the Corrosion Cave is located, and from there step onto the bridge. Get to the middle of it and turn right into a new area.
Here another group of level 35 enemies will be waiting for you. Deal with them and activate the third mechanism.
Deep into the corridor and open the door
Climb up the stairs from the third mechanism and interact with the controller to open the lattice gate. Watch a short video. This will take you back to the main grate, which is now open.
Run forward to the quest marker. There you will encounter a level 36 Guardian Shadow, which is vulnerable to physical, wind and quantum damage, so we advise you to take Dan Heng to the team. After dealing with the enemies, move on and open the door by interacting with the controller on the right.
Automaton Bumblebee (puzzle)
After passing through the passage, you find a broken robot on the right, which can be fixed by solving the puzzle with magnetic modules (optional). The correct version of the rotation of the terminals is shown in the picture below.
Then examine the automaton and start following him, going to the right alley. There you will encounter a group of level 36 enemies. At the end of the path, you can find a level 42 Shadow of the Keeper guarding a luxury chest. Its vulnerabilities are shown in the screenshot below. She may well be defeated by characters level 39-40. We recommend using physical, ice and wind heroes.
Keep following the robot, turning into the left alleyway and fighting more enemies 36- th level. At the end of the path you will find a valuable chest.
How to defeat Kokoliya's echo
Now go back and continue to follow the quest marker. Deal with the next level 36 enemies. Get to the next echo of Kocolia, but don't get close to it yet, as this will start the battle.
This enemy is vulnerable to quantum, electrical, and fire damage. With Zele in the squad, this battle will turn into an easy walk in the park. Otherwise, we advise you to assemble a team from Serval, Asta, Mart 7 and Natasha. The Shieldman and the Healer will help keep the pack in combat-ready condition. It would be nice if their superpowers were ready.
Kokoliya has an area-of-effect attack that deals massive damage. Fortunately, it takes 2-3 turns to charge it. If you manage to destroy the boss's stamina within the specified time, you can avoid this hit.
We will add that Kokoliya will create two large ice spears that will periodically deal area damage . We advise you to destroy their resistance as quickly as possible using fire or electric attacks, and then finish off these icicles so that they do not reduce the health of your fighters.
After dealing with the boss, watch a short cutscene. When it ends, the task will come to an end. As a reward, you will receive 1000 development experience, 80 star jade, 3 travel guides and 3 refined ether. You will also unlock access to the next quest, “Paths to the Past Closed Long Ago”.
