Riddle of the Three Wise Beasts

By activating the book held by the stone gargoyle, the 3 wise beasts, here fluorescent blue turtles, will appear nearby. But be careful, dying or leaving the area will make them disappear, you will have to reactivate the puzzle book when you return . You might go crazy looking for turtles that just aren't there.

  • The first turtle will appear directly behind your back.
  • The second is close too, it is hidden in a bush to the left of the tower stairs.
  • The third is much harder to find as it's in the pond behind the tower. It is invisible so you'll have to hit the air.

A message will confirm the opening of the tower then, all you have to do is go back and get your just reward.


At the top of the tower is a chest with a Memory Shard, it will permanently increase your number of spell slots.
