Steps

  1. Go to the Thousand Winds Temple
  2. Defeat the monsters guarding the ruin to complete the challenge
  3. Obtain Dvalin’s Tear

Go to the Thousand Winds Temple

For the first Crystal, you’ll need to head to the Thousand Winds Temple, the easiest way to get there is by teleporting to the Temple of the Wolf and following the path northeast, as you reach the location, you’ll have to defeat the enemies guarding it.

Defeat the monsters guarding the ruin to complete the challenge

You’ll see the monster guarding the ruin, is no other than the Ruin Guard, this can be a tough battle if you’re not prepared. Charging a shot up with an Archer is the best way to deal with them, because you can target their weak points, which is the glowing core on its head, and stun it briefly, allowing you several seconds to deal lots of damage with your top DPS whilst it’s stunned. The Ruin Guard has several moves which can deal substantial amounts of damage:

Stomp Attack: It will stomp its foot on top of you if you’re in melee range. To avoid this, dodge to its back as its foot lifts of the ground for some free attacks on to it.

Spin Attack: As it starts spinning, it won’t stop for approximately five seconds, just keep backing up until its finished because if you try to attack it in this animation you will be hit for moderate damage.

Clap Attack: Its arms will have a shimmer from its shoulders to its hands and then both hands will clap together for some major damage, dodging forwards to get behind will net you some free melee attacks.

(1 of 7) Back away or dodge behind the Stomp attack

Leaping Punch: It will start off with a two hit punch combo and then leap on top of you for major damage, backup to avoid the punches and then dodge forward as soon as you see the AoE marker underneath you.

Bombardment: It will kneel down and target you with a crosshair, then fire a volley of six homing missiles at you for moderate to major damage depending on how many of the missile hit you, keeping the distance and dodging the last second is the best way to avoid this attack.

The key to defeating it, is by using a charged strike by an Archer to its core on its head which can stagger it, follow that up again, and it will become immobilized for a short moment allowing an opportunity to let loose your strongest attacks.

When it casts Bombardment the core on its back will be visible, if you are quick enough, a charged strike will interrupt the attack.

Obtain Dvalin’s Tear

Once you’ve defeated it, open the Precious Chest, and you’ll get a scene, with Paimon being surprised that there was a Crystal Tear here. When the scene ends, you’ll receive the Teardrop Crystal, and the quest will end.
