Walkthrough

Drop down to the lower area of the room and you’ll see an object that is shooting a laser. Walk up to the object and pick it up. Carry it over to the moving platform that is on the ground and drop it, so that it is facing the direction of the crystal switch in the center of the room. This will cause the laser to occasionally hit the switch, raising or lowering certain platforms in the room.

Be sure to snag the treasure chest where the laser was before to get some Topaz. Now run back up the ramp to get back to where you started the shrine. From here we want to jump off the ledge and paraglide all the way to the other side. The platforms should be rising and lowering, each time the crystal switch his hit. We are able to land on one of the lower platforms, so time it accordingly.


Just wait for the crystal switch to be hit and make your way up to the treasure chest. Open it up to get an Ancient Core.

Just passed where the Crystal Switch is, there are more platforms that create somewhat of a staircase. Just climb the steps one at a time, waiting for the crystal switch to be hit. At the top of the ledge, speak with the monk, Ishto Soh. He will reward you with a Spirit Orb.

    I did this puzzle in a different way. I didn’t know you could move the laser. I was super confused by the moving platform and how to solve it to be honest but I figured out a way! Here’s my steps.

    1. Lower the platforms on the wall you face when you enter the room. Next go down the ramp and place a box bomb close enough to the crystal to activate it diagonal to the ramp. Place a second bomb (Switch to your normal ones) to the other way so that when you use that bomb it doesn’t blow up the square one but triggers the crystal.

    2. Glide across the way as shown in the figure above and then trigger the round/normal bomb on the other side of the crystal so the platforms rise up, grab what’s in the chest and throw another round bomb below on the “left” side of the crystal, (right side from the entrance perspective.) After doing so make the crystal activate again, this should cause the platforms to “checker” with some being down and some being up once more. Jump the gap to the up ones on the right of the chest and across the room you see the platforms you normally have going up and down repeatedly due to the laser.

    3. Toss one more normal bomb next to the crystal, again be sure not to have it too close to the box bomb because the normal one will trigger it if it’s in the blast radius. Do not activate the round bomb yet, instead glide over to the area you see from across the way on your left from the platform you leaped onto. You’ll see a decorative indentation on the wall, you can climb that and then jumping from that onto the platform, activate one bomb, climb the next platform, activate the next bomb. Boom

    Puzzle solved, no bravery required. Again, I was SUPER confused at what it had to do with bravery xD!

    Thanks for the intended solution~
