In the Sea of Sands’ desert, you will find some old buildings. In Horizon Forbidden West, finding a ruin also means finding a treasure. Like most, the Stillsands Relic Ruin has a puzzle you must solve to earn your reward. This one is distinctively different from others you can find in the game because you need to figure out how to work with the water level. So follow these tips for you to reach your prize.
How to Solve The Stillsands Relic Ruin Puzzle
To solve The Stillsands Relic Ruin puzzle you will need to use water to reach different levels of the building. Open the path to a hidden room where you can control the water level. After that use the crates to reach the ornament at the highest level of the structure.
The Stillsands Relic Ruin is southwest of the Tallneck of this region. What you will find once you have arrived there is an old building that is partially visible on the surface. To enter you must go to the back of it where there is a hole with a beam that you can use to rappel inside. The lowest level in the area is where you will start. Close to where you descend, there is a crate at the top of a wrecked stair. Simply use the Pullcaster to drag it down.
You will see that there is a path to the north where you can push the crate, but it ends in a wall. However, there is some firegleam on it, which means you can destroy it with the Igniter. Now that the wall is open, push the crate through and use it to reach the valve in the upper part.
The next step is to use the same crate to block the small passage in which the water is escaping. Having done that, the water level will get higher. Leave this room and swim to where there is a key that you are going to need.
Go back north and open the door with the key you just got. Inside of a corridor, there is another crate. The idea now is to reach a higher level by jumping on the crate. So, throw it into the water and use the Pullcaster to pull it to the south. After that, you just need to get on it that reach a climbing spot. Then you will have completed the Stillsands Relic Ruin.
