Walkthrough[edit]

  • Your goal is to reach Eschan Portal #15.
  • Unlock the Eschan Portal #1 upon arriving in Escha - Ru'Aun.
  • To do this, click on the ??? to the left of the NPC, Dremi (hard left from the Undulating Confluence), to collect a clump of TemporaryEschan Droplets. This item allows you to unlock the portal the first time you use it.
  • Upon examining Eschan Portal #1 with the drops in your possession, you are given the option to teleport you to the next Eschan Portal. On each island the portals take you to, locate a ??? that gives another clump of TemporaryEschan Droplets so that you can teleport to the next portal to unlock it.
  • You only have to unlock portal once. After that, you can use Eschan Silt to teleport around Escha - Ru'Aun.
    • Warning: Right now, there's a glitch where if you transport using clumps, it won't flag the portal in your collection.Verification Needed To get around this, click the portal and cancel out of the menu once before using the portal.
  • After reaching Portal #15, examine the nearby ??? for a cutscene with Balamor and Selh'teus.
  • Here's a small guide to find the Eschan Droplets:
