Tiny Tiny Cave Walthrough-- ‘How to get Ardent Blossom’
Ok guys, so obviously there are some weird spoilers ahead, so if you don’t want to read any of them, DON’T READ THIS!!
ok, so here we go.
Around 5 pm on 3/18/2015, Kotaku releasedthisarticle
Basically, it details this SUPER SECRET HIDDEN CHEST that is FULL of secret rare things. All you have to do is jump on a tiny cave in the Emerald Graves.
SO, I really wanted to try this out, mainly because I had not heard anything about that weird tiny cave, and I think the Emerald Graves is my favorite map in the game (it is just so dang gorgeous), and it’s not like I had anything else better to do on a Friday night but jump on a tiny fucking cave.
The tiny cave in question:
look at that cute-ass little sign.
This sweet, weird little cave is found here in the Emerald Graves:
The key to triggering this insane quest is jumping like crazy on the tiny cave.
All hail the purple moose.
I think I jumped around 50-60 times. (Hint: I would make your party hold position right outside of the area, because I kept having Iron Bull all up in my personal space.)
After you jump around 30 times or so, you will start hearing this voice coming from the tiny cave. I was in a fit of frenzy last night, so in my haste, I did not write down what the voice said. However! after you jump on the cave some more, you will get a quest to find 10 Crystal Grace. I already had 7 in my inventory, but I found the remaining pieces in these places: Note: you can ONLY find Crystal Grace in the Hinterlands.
After gathering the Crystal Grace, I went back to the little voice in the cave, and they got REALLY EXCITED! then they started muttering something to the effect of “ Stairs, the stairs, they’ll be there, THEY’LL BE THERE”, and then, nothing.
After this, I briefly tried to think of places with stairs in the game. The first place I thought of was the Giant’s Stairs in the Western Approach. I don’t know if any of you guys have seen the weird tower there, but I thought it would be a good place to look.
After finding nothing here but booze, tiny farmers and cheese (sounds like a fucking party), i decided to consult the internet. After googleing “staircase dragon age” I came across this Reddit thread. APPARENTLY this little egg had been found a little over a month ago, so good research Kotaku, good research.
ANYWAY the best way to find this little spot is to follow this path in Emprise du Lion:
Because if you try to go to Suledin Keep first, you will not be able to get to it.
Anyway, you will have to follow that little path until you find the veil fire. The Area looks like this:
look at how Dorian models so well.
And HERE is the super secret fake snow wall.
All you really need to do is go through, best do it at a bit of a run if you’re nervous.
On the other side of this fake snow wall you will find a staircase, a super long stair case that goes on, and on,and on,and on, and ON.
Eventually, you will get to the bottom.
and you will find the SUPER SECRET CRAZY RARE CHEST!
and THIS is what will be inside.
a little bit anti climactic, but oh —-
Holyshitwait… is this a MUTHERFUCKING FLOWER CROWN!?
What look like animated illustrations that could easily spring from a child’s imagination are actually newly unveiled artificial cells under a microscope.
Biophysicists at Germany’s Technical University of Munich along with an international team developed simple self-propelled biomachines in a quest to create cell models that display biomechanical functions.
The researchers say their work represents the first time a movable cytoskeleton membrane has been fabricated.
<b>charles:</b> he's cute and he means well but he can be kind of an asshole so I'd understand if you wanted to fight him. but you shouldn't. like, he's not a good fighter, and you'd probably get in one decent punch if you didn't think about it too hard beforehand, but he's a telepath. he'll take you out.<p/><b>erik:</b> don't fight erik. its tempting, but don't do it. even if you trap him in a room with no metal, he'll probably still find a way to kick your ass and he'll do it mercilessly. don't fight erik.<p/><b>raven:</b> yeah you probably shouldn't fight raven - unless you're really good she'll most likely beat you. and why would you want to? she's been through a lot of shit, man, leave the poor girl alone. she doesn't deserve it.<p/><b>hank:</b> don't fight hank.
