Palia Echoes of the Unknown Quest Guide
Echoes of the Unkown is a questline in Palia that sees you hunting down ancient technology inside ruins and using all of your abilities and tools to explore and solve puzzles.
How to start Echoes of the Unknown
Echoes of the Unknown begins once you've found the strange item during the mission "Welcome to Palia". You'll be prompted to speak to Jina, and she'll give you another quest called "Ancient Battery"
Head to the temple marked in Ancient Battery and you'll be presented with a puzzle you need to solve to complete the mission and start echoes of the Unkown
How to Solve the Puzzle in Ancient Battery
Head to the door and read the riddle to get a head start. It mentions using "that which grows life", which is a reference to your watering can (or rather, the water inside it.)
Equip your watering can and walk over to the pedestal in the center of the shrine. Use your watering can to fill up the pedestal with water and the door will spring open. Once you've headed inside and explored, Jina will show up and you can speak to her to complete the mission.
Finally, you'll have to complete the quest "Like a Bird" to properly start the Echoes of the Unkown quest. Once that's done, go speak to Jani again at the original temple to begin the quest.
Echoes of the Unkown
Head into the main part of the ruin to find Jina and Hekla hanging out near the giant chasm in the center of the entrance area.
After speaking to Jina, you can either stand on the rock to the right and glide over to the hole in the wall (pictured above) or play it safe and land on the lower section to the right of the chasm.
Explore this new area to find a lootable chest at the top of some stairs, but mostly just locked doors and cryptic symbols. In one area you should be able to find a patch of bubbling water on the floor. This is a geyser (pictured above) and is how you progress to the upper levels.
Stand in the geyser for a few seconds and it'll shoot you into the air. Use your glider to land safely on the upper levels of the ruin. Turn around and you should be able to see an obvious slide puzzle at the end of the hall.
Our solution was left, left, down, down, left for this puzzle, though your answer may vary. Either way, this particular slide puzzle isn't too tough.
Head back over to Jina, but on your way glide down to the ledge below her to grab another chest. Once you've spoken to her you'll be given the next part of the questline Vault of Wolves.
Vault of Waves
Head to the marker just south of the previous ruins you were just in. Inside, you'll see Jina and Hekla standing around near a glowing mural. Speak to Jina to learn that this glowing business is a new feature of these ruins.
Head over to the glowing spot in the wall and interact with it to discover the four bundles that you'll have to fill to complete the quest. Head over to our Bundles guide if you want to learn how to quickly and easily get access to all of the materials that you need for each one.
Speak to Jina once you're done and she'll tell you to fill the bundles while she locates the next ruin to puzzle your way through, and that completes the questline!
