Through Time and Space Tips and Strategies

Exploration Tips

Missable Loot

In Ddiddiwedht Desert, the first world, there are hollowed out tree stumps the player can loot for Ashes and Elemental Essence.

Poison Gas Valley Place of Power

NOTE: You can only encounter this Place of Power during this quest. If you miss this, you no longer be able to get the free skill point anymore.

To find the Place of Power in the Poison Gas Valley, follow the main path until you reach the double ledge shown in the first image. Climb up this ledge and immediately turn right when the path splits in two. (You should be turning right almost immediately after climbing up the ledge.)

After turning right you should be able to see the Place of Power as shown in the second image. After meditating at the Place of Power and gaining the free skill point, you can turn right again and head back to the main path towards the very base of the Red World.

World Destoryed by the White Frost

When you reach the world destroyed by the White Frost, Cast the Quen Sign to give yourself a little protection against the cold.

You can light torches, candles, or ficeplaces indoors to regenerate your health after losing some from the cold. Also, when you get near the lighthouse, you can stand near the lit cauldrons to become immune to the cold of the White Frost.

Combat Strategies


  • Sandcrabs are an unknown monster from another world. It is not shown anywhere what their vulnerabilities are but, they are very similiar to Endrega Drones.
  • You do not gain any exp from killing the Sandcrabs. We recommend going into the portal right after it appears.

Hounds of the Wild Hunt

  • Coat your Silver Sword in Elementa Oil to deal bonus damage to them.
  • Cast the Igni Sign to make them burn and give yourself an opening to attack.
  • Stand near the lit cauldrons while fighting them to become immune to the White Frost's cold and have an easier time maneuvering.
