In order to open the Rune Gate with a symbol looking like an ‘M’, simply turn around and focus on the shadows on the rock.

Chapter #2 – Illusion Trial

Illusion Gate #1
In order to open the first Illusion Gate hiding the path to Valravn, turn around and follow the path to drop down a bridge that should allow you to pass through a gate to open the Illusion Gate.

Rune Gate #2
You need to pass through the small illusion gate near the Rune Gate in order to create a hole in the wall in front of you. Once done, pass through the hole to get to the top and look at the Raven symbol through the correct angle to open the Rune Gate.

Rune Gate #3 – Second Raven Rune Gate
In order to open the second raven Rune Gate, you need to pass through four illusion gates to repair the staircase in the area. From the Rune Gate, turn back to pass through the first illusion gate.

Pass through it to repair the stairs and see the Rune Gate from the correct angle to open it.

From the Rune Gate, climb the ladder on the left-hand side to pass through an illusion gate. Once done, walk over a tree branch and pass through another illusion gate on the other side.
