The new realm in Voyage of Wonders is coming and it’s called the Forgotten Ruins. If you like some puzzle in Voyage, you’ll be pretty happy because this one here is a nice one.
The Forgotten Ruins General & Rewards
Lasers, tracks, multiple floor levels, levers, … this one has it all and it looks intimidating when you start it. The puzzle is not the most challenging one but it’s also none you just walk through just like that. I personally liked it, also the storyline and setting was quite fun to play.
The rewards for the Forgotten Ruins are, frankly spoken, expandable. The main reward are 2x Crystal Chests with 10x Regular Summon Scrolls and 10x Faction Summon Scrolls. Probably one of the worst Crystal Chests we’ve seen in Voyage of Wonders for a long time and I can barely remember rewards being much worst than that.
The other Golden Chests contain the normal things you always can expect to get.
I know it’s free rewards and also fun to play, but a better payoff would be highly appreciated Lilith…
Forgotten Ruins Walkthrough
As always, you will find a full walkthrough for the realm here. With that being said, let’s not waste any more time and jump right into the walkthrough for the Forgotten Ruins.
Step 1 – right at the start when the first conversation between belinda and Lucius is finished, use the railroad switch right in front of you to block the blue laser beam ①. Then walk to the left, fight through the camp and use the green lever once ②. Then also clear off the camp next to the green lever and get the first Golden Chest.
Once done with that, walk upwards to the yellow lever ③ and use it as well. Here you will see the full size of the puzzle for the first time so there’s a lot of work ahead.
Step 2 – now walk back to the green lever and use it once more (to the left position) ①. From here you can take the route to the top left corner of the Forgotten Ruins where you need to clear the camp and collect the next Golden Chest ②. Follow the path along to the red lever ③ and clear the camp there as well. Use the red lever to get the red stone down, step on the stone and use the red lever again to get on the top floor:
Step 3 – on the top floor, walk to the left and clear the camp, collect the Golden Chest next to the yellow lever and use the yellow lever once ①. The walk back to the right and you can use the red lever once again ②. This will create a path to the left side where you need to clear two more camps and collect two more Golden Chests ③. It’s important that you have cleared all Golden Chests on the top floor here before you proceed:
Step 4 – to get back down is a little pain… walk back to the point where you got up on the top floor, step on the red stone and use the red lever to get down to the ground again ①. Then walk around to the yellow lever on the ground level and use it once more ②. Now walk back to the red lever and use it once more to free the path back ③:
Step 5 – now walk back to the green lever and fight the camp next to it ① to open the path to the next section of the Forgotten Ruins. There you need to block the blue and the red laser to proceed. To do that, move the laser beam switch on the tracks to the upper position ② to block the red laser. Then you can walk to the bottom side of the red lever and use it to block the blue laser ③:
Step 6 – walk to the right where you have the two tracks with the two blue laser beams. Use both railroad switches to set the to the left position ① & ③ and make sure to collect the Golden Chest on the very right position ②:
Then you can also collect the Golden Chest behind your position ③.
Step 7 – now you need to beat the first boss camp ①. After having beaten that boss camp walk to the left and use the portal there ② that will take you to the initial position. This is needed to set some levers right. There you need to use the red lever once ③:
Step 8 – now go to the starting track and move the railroad beam switcher to the down position ①, walk up and then move it to the top position ② before using the red lever again ③ from the positions shown in the images:
Step 9 – now collect the Crystal Chest (if you haven’t already) and walk upwards to the blue portal and use it ①. Make sure that you have all Golden Chests at this point, there’s no way returning from the blue portal. If you don’t and use the blue portal, you need to re-start the Forgotten Ruins for the missing Golden Chest(s)! Then you have an extra island where you have one last boss camp ② to beat and then you can claim the final Crystal Chest ③:
