Go to the Ancient Furnance
|Make your way back to the village, carrying a Torch, and proceed to the ancient furnance.
If you do not have a torch, there is one inside the lab, just by the main door.
Light the Nearest Lantern
|The method to successfully bringing the blue flame to the lab is to light up the lanterns along the way, so you do not have to go back to the main source.
Light up the first lantern near the ancient furnace.
Use Cryonis to Pass the River
|Short Route: The next lantern to the left is across the river, so create an ice block first before bringing your lit torch.|
Pass Through the Village
|Long Route: Alternatively, you can go right to pass through the village, lighting up each lantern you pass by.|
Light Up the Lanterns as You Go Up
|Make your way back to the lab, lighting up each lantern on the hill. We reccomend riding a horse while doing this as it is a long way up.
