In this guide, we’ll provide an easy and fast solution to Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous’ Core of the Riddle Puzzle, so let’s begin!
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Core of the Riddle Puzzle Solution
The location of the ‘Core of the Riddle’ is located to the west of Wintersun. But what you require are the slabs. The slabs are hidden in the Ravaged Long House that you can spot to the southwest of Wintersun
To start off, travel to Ravaged Long House that is conveniently below the Core of the Riddle Waypoint on the Map. Before you travel to the location, prepare for a difficult fight.
You will be encountering enemies that are able to decrease your party member’s levels in AoE. The only way to defeat them is to either brute force it or swiftly incapacitate each enemy, one by one.
AoE crowd control or artillery can be other options you can choose to deal with your opponents.
The chest can be reached in two ways. Through the basement (the precise location of which is shown on the image below) or through the well but it requires a check on Atheletics with DC 29.
Now let’s get to sleuthing. Head inside the broken-down house to find a hatch that leads to the basement. After dealing with the enemies mentioned above, travel a bit deeper until you can find an ornate chest in a spacious cavern. Open it and collect a number of Slabs with Blue Symbols.
With the slabs in hand, teleport back to Drezen first. Rest up before returning to the ‘Core of the Riddle’. Upon reaching the location, enter the cave to come face to face with the puzzle.
Fortunately, it’s similar to the puzzle that you find in Conundrum Unsolved. But don’t let the familiarity fool you.
To start off, fit the slabs in the outer depressions like this:
Then move on to the lone depression on the lower-left corner, don’t let the upper-right symbols guide you since they are there to throw you off. Fit the slab inside, to finally, face the meat of the grand puzzle.
It is suggested that you start along the edges of the lower-left slab to make it easier for you.
Finally, it is time to face the meat of the grand puzzle. It is suggested that you start along the edges of the slabs and move into the center until the final pattern is similar to the picture below.
If your pattern is correct, a door will unlock for you. Head to the secret room to collect the Elven notes for the old Storyteller and other treasures like the Starknife.
