Upon discovering Timmie’s imaginary friend is Ruin Guard, you’ll decide to avoid for the moment and instead spy on the adults at the back of the tavern. From here, go to the Knights of Favonius headquarters Fast Travel and speak with Ellin who can be found training at the back of the building. Finally, you’ll need to destroy all three training dummies at the same time. To do this, hit them all until they have low HP, then use an Elemental Skill which can reach them all three to finish them off.
