Sycrakea Puzzle

Main Quest Line Puzzles

The are 5 puzzles you must complete during the Sycrakea main quest line.


Puzzle 1: Lights On Puzzle

There is a 3 x 3 grid of towers.

The object is to turn all the towers on. (So that they are sparkling and the top part is raised.)

When you activate a tower, the towers that are next to it are deactivated. But if they are already on, then they will turn off. If they are in the off position, they will turn on. Make sense? Haha!

It’s similar to the traditional “Light’s Out Puzzle.”

For help solving this type of puzzle, there is an application here: DDO Vale Puzzle Solver.

Use the puzzle solver and edit it to reflect the towers that are lit up as red circles on the solver. Then click the Play then Solve button. The number 1 means interact with that device. Starting from top left in order from left to right row by row to the bottom right.

When you see all of the towers NOT lit up, then interact with the very center tower to light up all the towers.

When all the towers are lit up, you win.

Puzzle 2: Cubes, Towers, & Platforms, Oh My!

Knowledge: Thread of Complicated Relationships

Quest: [Atoraxxion] Divided Paths


TIP: Solo mode will instant complete this puzzle for you when you choose the [Solo] dialog at the device.


There are two separate locations for this puzzle.

Each section has a set of 4 cubes with symbols on them. ( I   II   Γ   ◻  and  off )

Each section also has round platforms that smoke yellow when you step on one to confirm you activated the platform.


North Cubes Location
Stepping on these platforms will change the symbols at the south cube location.

1. Make the 4 Cubes Match:

  • Your first task is to make the sequence of the symbols on the 4 cubes to match in both locations.
  • Do this by stepping onto one of the four round platforms in front of the cubes. (At the northern towers location.)
  • Go back to the southern location and find the cube that has changed symbols. This lets you know which platform controls which cube.
  • Symbols on the Cubes change in sequential order:
    • Step 1 once: I
    • Step 2 times: II
    • Step 3 times: Γ
    • Step 4 times:


South Cubes Location
Stepping on these platforms adds 1 to 3 light levels to the northern towers.

sycrakea puzzle


2. Light up All Towers:

Each of the 3 towers has 3 levels of lights. Stepping on a platform adds 1 to 3 light levels.

  • Walk onto one of the round platforms that are in a triangle shape in the southern location.
  • Have one person at the tower room to record the tower numbers and their light level
  • For example, tower 1, light level 2 by stepping on platform 3 (write T1.L2.P3)
  • Do this for each of the round platforms

Now think of this puzzle as an adding machine. Each time a platform is stepped on, it will add a certain amount of lights to the towers.

Adding lights to a tower that is already fully lit up at light level of 3 will cause that tower to reset to a 0 light level.

When all 3 towers have all lights lit up, an object will appear to allow you to finish.
