"Finally, the party manages to catch up to John. He tells the party to progress through the Passage of Trials in order to learn true courage."
- The way to the Passage of Trials is opened up to the party.
- Go over to the new opening to the left of the platform with Joch and Jehk.
- Equip someone in the party with your Axe to smash through rocks that will be in your way.
- Just inside you will encounter a Nitro Pumpkin.
- Be wary of it since it can cast Wall.
- Head West and then North, breaking through the rocks in your way.
- On the other side of those rocks is another Nitro Pumpkin.
- Continuing North you will encounter a Shapeshifter, a Captain Duck and another Nitro Pumpkin.
- Just beyond them are some more rocks to break, but also a Marmablue, and another Nitro Pumpkin.
- This will bring you to a split in the past, one passage going to the Southwest, one to the South.
- Smash the rocks with your Axe and head to the South.
- Continue to the Southeast to reach a short passage with a whip pillar at its end guarded by a Shape Shifter.
- On the far side of the gap, you will encounter another 2 Nitro Pumpkin that will be after you.
- Following the path to the North, you will find another Marmablue.
- Smash through the rocks in front of you with the axe to encounter more Shape Shifters.
- Follow the walkway to the West to continue forward.
- Break through the next set of rocks and follow the path to the Northwest.
- The passage will turn to the East, leading to more Shape Shifters and rocks that are in your way.
- Past the next set of rocks you will encounter another 2 Nitro Pumpkin and a Shape Shifter, but you are close to the end of the Passage of Trials.
- As you reach the next turn, another Marmablue will appear to attack your party.
- Defeat it and smash your way through the rocks at this junction.
- Beyond these rocks, you will encounter a number of Shape Shifters, and above them to the North, another Marmablue and Nitro Pumpkin.
- The final enemy in your way is a Shape Shifter.
- Defeat it or just run by it and head into the next room.
Boss - The Shadows
- In this room you will encounter the bosses: Shadow #1, Shadow #2, and Shadow #3.
- These foes can be beaten either through a traditional fight or allowing your characters to be defeated.
- Each time one is defeated, their shadow will vanish, just be sure to use a Cup of Wishes on them to restore them.
- Using Lucid Barrier to ignore their physical attacks, making the fight very easy.
Returning to Joch
- With the shadows defeated, head South, out of the boss chamber.
- This will immediately take you back to the entrance room.
- Go up the short set of stairs and talk with Jehk to complete this quest.
