Tips and Strategies

Attack at Ranged

Often times, this stage will have you at a height or distance advantage, allowing you to safely attack your opponents at range. By this virtue, Catti-Brie will certainly be more suited in this stage. For close-ranged users, simply avoid getting swarmed as often times large group of enemies tend to attack at the same time.

Boss Strategy: Fenji Coldeye

Defeat Fenji Coldeye

Dark Alliance Crystal Harvest 07
The thing about giants - they really are super slow. So, do what you need to do with any giants you have faced so far. Attack, dodge when they are about to attack, then resume your offense.

How to Beat Fenji Coldeye

Crystal Harvest Attribute Shrines Locations

Crystal Harvest Puzzle

The entrance to the Attribute Shrine is located in the Mine Tunnels, near a crystal and a purple lantern. Inside, the shrine is blocked by a force field.
To solve the Crystal Harvest Puzzle, you need to deactivate the force field. Match the runes on the floor with the symbol scattered in the area to deactivate it. You can find the first symbol on the rock near the entrance.
The next symbol is located on the structure above the shrine.
There is another symbol located through a hole from the bridge. It's located on the wall at the other side.
The last symbol is located underneath the barrels near the shrine.
Once you match the runes with the symbols, the force field should disappear and you can now collect the attribute from the shrine.
