The tunic has a red, green and blue pearl to collect and deliver to the sealed temple, and the blue in Hidden Vault is the hardest to get.
There are three colored gemstones in Tunic, including the blue that can be found in Hidden Vault. To reach this area, players must have the right equipment and weapons to get through the quarry. It is recommended that players track the blue gem after retrieving the green and red ones, as there are useful upgrade items to be found while searching for the other two. Like the other gems, the blue gemstone is needed to complete adventure in Tunic.
The blue gemstone is the hardest of the three to achieve because players will have to get through the quarry. There are a number of strong enemies to fight along the way, as well as pink crystals that will drain the fox’s health. The crystals will also exhaust the fox’s overall maximum health, so they are only down to a single hit with no way to recover, except to rescue and reset each enemy. To undo the effects of the crystals scattered around the quarry, players will need to find and equip Scavenger’s Mask.
There are two ways to get in Quarry in Tunic. The first entrance is found in the upper world by taking the stairs under the bell tower on the left side of the map. After walking around the back, players will find a bridge with a tall knight in a green cloak standing guard. The enemy can be defeated with a few well-aimed fireworks or with properly timed melee attacks. The second entrance to the quarry can be accessed by going down the stairs on the right side of the mountain door. This road will bring players closer to the first area they must visit in the quarry.
Gets the Tunic’s Scavenger Mask ability card
The crystals that degrade fox health can be eliminated by equipping the Scavenger Mask hidden ability card, but players must first find it in the quarry. Using the entrance from the mountains, players can walk up the path and then to the right to drop the bridge. The path forward is linear and should be easy to follow, but there are a decent amount of snipers, bombers and enemies with swords along the way. The snipers and bombers can be pulled with the grip and killed using the sword or shot with the magic wand.
After reaching the area above where the fox entered the quarry, there will be a set of stairs leading to the monastery. Before going up, players must activate the switch at the back of the platform to reveal a stone ladder that leads back up if the fox dies. At the top of the stairs there are a couple of snipers and sword enemies to fight, as well as a large crystal to avoid. Once the enemies are cleared, the players will find the monastery entrance at the other end of the platform behind an inaccessible lifeline.
It is easier to clear the monastery of enemies if the players take the elevated path to the right first. There are only a few opponents, so it should be relatively easy to beat them. However, there are a lot of places where the fox’s health will be drained, so players should proceed with some caution. At the other end of the monastery there is a heroic tomb statue and a coffin. Inside the chest, players will find the Scavenger Mask ability card. This card can be equipped from the inventory and it will counteract the health draining crystals. The fox’s health will still run out slowly if players stand right next to a crystal, but Scavenger Mask eliminates most of the dangers posed by the crystals, especially for those with upgraded health in Tunic.
Finding the hidden vault in the tunic
After receiving the Scavenger Mask, players must return to the rescue point over the bridge at the start of the Quarry area to regain any drained health. Next, players can walk down the path next to the stone ladder they previously activated. This path leads deeper into the quarry and there are a lot of enemies and crystals to deal with. The easiest way to navigate the lower parts of the quarry is to follow the railway tracks until the pink stripe on the ground is visible, and then continue to get to Inside the Ziggurat.
From the beginning of TunicInside the Ziggurat area, players can go down the ramps and then run to the right side of the screen to save before moving on. Most footbridges lead to dead ends, so the path ahead should be easy to identify. When players reach a bar on a square platform, they can ask to activate it. The pillar comes to life and must be defeated to advance. There are two phases in the fight. In the first phase, the pillar goes on four legs and uses a mixture of melee combat and magical attacks. When enough damage is done, some pieces will fall off and reveal a double sword-wielding enemy. The second phase is easier if the players have Tunic‘s magi staff and enough magic points left to defeat the enemy with range attacks.
Once the pillar enemy is defeated, players can get down the tower using the ladders and follow the path around to the next one until they reach an entrance that leads in. There are a few more ladders to go down that lead to a platform. As soon as the fox stands on the square platform, it will descend into an area with another rescue point. There are some towers to destroy and a lot of pink, luminous enemies in this area that will have the same effect as the health-draining crystals if they land a hit. They will also break into smaller enemies when the fox hits them. Players should dodge often and keep an eye on their endurance as they progress.
At the end of this section, there is a platform with two of the column’s enemies and an actual column to pray to. It’s easier to focus on one enemy at a time so there are no two of the sword fighters on the platform at once. After defeating them, the bar can be activated by praying, after which players can go down the stairs and ladder to reach the Hidden Vault. There is a rescue point just before the boss fight and the bar behind will activate it. This pillar also opens a path to the fast travel platform located behind the stairs in the central hub of chain points in Tunic.
Defeats Tunics Boss Scavenger
Boss Scavenger can be hard to beat, but the best way to defeat this boss quickly is to use range attacks. Bombs, fireworks and magical attacks from a distance like the shotgun or the wand will help players do a decent amount of damage without having to get too close to the Boss Scavenger. Throughout the match, the Boss Scavenger will use melee attacks with a long range, so players should constantly dodge. When Boss Scavenger is down, players can claim the blue pearl at the end of the arena platform. After obtaining this gem, players can deliver it to the sealed temple and advance to the next goal in Tunic.
Tunic is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, macOS and PC.
