This guide is part of my Pine walkthrough. I will show you how to go through the Dune Observatory step by step.
This is my first guide please give me some feedback and if you like it i will continue with the other vaults and the rest of the puzzles in the game.
Open the Dune Observatory vault
For this walkthrough i opened the Dune Obersatory as the first vault so i needed to destroy the trash bevor it with an Explosive Keg. Wes, one of the Tampas should give you 3 Explosive Kegs and the idea to craft more of them later. They cost
- 2 Marrwood
- 3 Dullrock
- 1 Lean-iron
To place the Explosive Keg just press and hold Q and choose it. Left mouse button will place one immediately. Right mouse button will only choose it for later use with pressing Q. You should make sure u place it close enough.
After you placed it take a step back and shoot at it with the slingshot so it explodes
and the trash goes away so you can enter the vault
If you destroy the boxes in the room u will find a pin inside of it.
Place it inside the pin socket next to the closed door.
The door will open and you can enter inside the room. You will find a simple lever which u can pull.
After you have done that there should be an aiming target above the stones where you got stucked earlier.
Shoot at it and the platform will be move so you are able to jump on it.
Second and third floor
You will get to a simple lever again.
Pull it and u will see the door moves up to the third floor.
Go upstairs and you will find another lever which brings the door back down to the second floor.
You will find the first pin in the middle of the room.
To get the second pin u need to follow the path above the stairs.
You will find a telescope and three symbols, a star on the left, a sun on the right and a moon in the background.
There are 4 simple levers. One to activate the telescope and three to move the symbols. As shown on the wall next to the telescope it wants to “see” the sun with the moon in the background.
First you need to move the star aside because it blocks the way to see the sun.
Second you need to move the moon behind the sun.
The telescope should now look at this configuration.
You will notice there is a platform which starts to move now.
Follow it and u will find the second pin.
If u have place the second pin
there is a second platform, in the middle of the room, which starts to move now.
Follow it and you can go to the next floor.
Fifth and sixth floor
Hit it and the door will slide upstairs and u can go to the sixth floor, where you find another pin socket.
You will find the pin after u jumped over two platform which u can move by hitting the aiming targets next to them.
If you place the pin in the pin socket you will now notice the platform on the fifth floor with the aiming target is now moving. If u can see it shoot at it.
The door will slide down to the fifth floor again.
Seventh and eigth floor
Pick one of the two pins on the floor and place it in the empty pin socket.
If you have done that the door at the end of the stairs left from the pin sockets will open and u can enter the eigth floor.
On the eigth floor you will get a little history lesson and find the outfinding scouting lens.
In addition you will find a note in a sideroom.
The note tells you:
- “You have gotten this far and found the tool that observes;”
- “Now you can prove your worth by using it to see your way to the top of the tower.”
- “That is where you can open the door below and leave for further adventures”
So basiclly it tells you, that you are trapped and need to use the new tool to get out of the vault.
Sidenote: i haven’t checked myself if you are really trapped. Let me know if you confirm that.
Go back to the seventh floor and you will notice there is a egg symbol on the wall. Everytime you see this symbol in the game you will need to use the scouting lens. So press R and look at the additional informations that you can see now.
With this view you can see over the pin sockets are 4 diffrent symbols, a mountain, some waves, a high rock and a circle building. On the 5 pins are the roman number I, II, III, IV and V.
On the wall next to the window is the egg symbol as well.
If you watch out of the window you can see the four symbols shown on the wall are related to the landmarks outside. With the scouting lens you can see some roman numbers next to the landmarks.
If you think a little about it, you can conclude
- The pin socket with the mountain symbol above needs the pin with the roman number III
- The pin socket with the wavessymbol above needs the pin with the roman number II
- The pin socket with the high rock symbol above needs the pin with the roman number V
- The pin socket with the circle building symbol above needs the pin with the roman number I
If u place the right pins into the pin sockets,
you will notice the door, on the right from the pin sockets, will open and you get to the stairs that lead to the ninth floor.
