Into The Ruins

Inside King Deshret’s ruins.

Set your clock to between 6:00 and 8:00 the next day and then head to Aaru Village. After some dialogue, head into the desert to the location marked on your map to meet with Rahman. During the heated interaction, the ground below you will collapse, landing your group in front of a ruin related to King Deshret.

Once you enter the ruins, you will be greeted with a simple puzzle to summon an elevator. You simply need to turn each pillar until they are glowing and work your way down. Once they all have the same image, an elevator will appear. Below is what the pillars should look like when turned correctly.

King Deshret’s ruins first puzzle.

Once the first puzzle is solved, you will find some Fungi monsters guarding a chest. Defeat them to open it. You should then proceed down the steps. The walls in front of you will open as you walk towards them, keep proceeding until you find a room with another elevator and defeat the nearby enemies to use it.

Once you go to the next floor, you will again need to fight a few enemies. This time you will need to use the elevator switch on the wall to send the elevator to the bottom floor. Hit the switch again once it has fully descended to bring it back up, and quickly hop on top of the elevator as it’s rising to be elevated to the next floor.

Once there, you will need to defeat more Fungi enemies. This will unlock two switches. This is another short but easy puzzle. This time you want to turn the left and right switch until they are glowing, and then turn off the pillars using the switch below them to lock them into place.

Turning off the pillar’s rotation.

Once the right and left pillars are turned correctly and locked in, move the middle. This will summon another elevator that will take you into the last area of the ruin.

The Truth of Greater Lord Rukkhadevata and King Deshret

The reveal of Greater Lord Rukkhadevata

The next area will drop some major reveals about the Sumeru storyline and reveal some important details about Kusanali, so make sure you set aside time to pay attention to the cutscene.

After this concludes, you will want to move your map to the area around Aaru village and use the nearby desert waypoint to quickly make your way to Rahman’s base. Here, you will meet the researchers responsible for the Village Keepers’ kidnapping and get some juicy details about the Sage’s master plan.

The group soon reconvenes at the chief’s house in Aaru village, and after some more dialogue, you will complete King Deshret and the Three Magi.
