Aranyaka: Part II - Dream Nursery: Encounter In The Woods

Jessica Dillon

The next part of Dream Nursery sends you off to learn three different songs to play in your Vintage Lyre. Each of these songs helps to open new paths and challenges throughout Sumeru, making them a must for 100 percent area completion. Below is where to find all three songs and what they do.

How to Start Encounter in The Woods

Speaking with Arakavi in Dream Vanrana.

Once you complete World of Aranara, you will want to head back into the village. Here you will speak to an Aranara named Arakavi. He will tell you about the missing Aranara and help give you information to find them. This unlocks three different quests.

  • The Rhythm That Leads To The Gloomy Path
  • The Rhythm that Nurtures the Sprout
  • The Rhythm that Reveals the Beastly Trail

These three quests can be done in any order, but you will need to finish them in order to proceed through the Aranyaka quest line.

The Rhythm that Nurtures the Sprout

Arasudraka location.

You will be seeking out an Aranara named Arasudraka. Once you speak with the Aranara, some nearby roses will begin to glow, you will want to walk clockwise around them until they are all sparkling. Once this is done, a glowing spot will appear on the ground, stand here and play your Vintage Lyre to learn the Rhythm of the Sprout.

The Rhythm of the Sprout gives you the ability to activate inactive Dendrograna around Sumeru. After you have learned the song, you will be sent to another quest marker to use your new ability. This will simply have you revive a Dendrogana and then shoot nearby Dendro hoops to unlock a path.

Follow this path until you reach a Withering Zone. Use the same techniques that you learned in Woodland Encounter to quickly disarm it. After clearing the area, you will interact with the damaged tree. This will send you into the dreams of the tree, which is a short domain.

Each song you learn follows this same pattern and the domain revolves around using the song you learned to progress forward. This one has you revive Dendrogana and shoot Dendro hoops to progress. Once this is done and you have opened the path to the end of the domain, you will need to clear out the invasive Fungi.

The Rhythm That Leads To the Gloomy Path

Arayasa location.

The next song you will learn on the Vintage Lyre is the Rhythm of the Gloomy Path. You will learn this by speaking with Ashvattha at the location on the map above. Once again, you will need to rotate clockwise to learn the song from a patch of roses. After this is done, you will be able to activate the mini Dendro arches or gloomy paths that have music notes waving out of them.

You will head down to an area where you will use the song to practice using the paths. These paths will teleport you to special locations when walked through. Go through the first path. Here, you will find another Withering Zone and another tree domain. Complete these tasks to move on to the last song.

The Rhythm that Reveals the Beastly Trail

Aradase location.

The last Aranara that you need to seek out is Aradasa. They will help you learn the Rhythm of the Beastly Trail. This will allow you to activate the Claustroflora sprinkled around the Sumeru forest. These can be used to unlock hidden paths.

Once you have unlocked the first path, head in to defeat the final Wither Zone and complete the tree domain. After this is completed, you can choose to take on the An Unwavering Culinary Dream quest, the Agnihotra Sutra quest, or the Agnihotra Sutra quest.
