For those who had a bit of trouble understanding the tutorial given by the game. This guide will explain to you how to complete the puzzles in this cave after your initial visit.
I'm going to do my best to explain this puzzle in an easy to understand manner, and tips on completing it.
This guide will include:
Well, lets get on with it!
Getting the cave unlocked
Things to get before attempting the Puzzles
The charm bangle is an absolute necessity for making this puzzle easier. So I've offered several ways to obtain one.
1st Visit to The New Cave
Time to rescue Pops
You can choose to equip the Charm Bangle now, just to make navigating the cave easier, as it can be very confusing. Cid is inside the cave resting. Go meet up with him.
Once you Speak with Cid / Get too close to him a Boss Battle will ensue. Make sure you're prepared.
There are some treasure chests you can get now, but you can wait to open them for your 2nd or 3rd visit.
Once you defeat the boss you should get a nice Episode Complete. And that's really all there is to your first visit!
2nd Visit to The New Cave
Okay this is when the Puzzle shenanigans start. There is an available tutorial to follow that the game gives you. If you want you can view it. I'm going to explain the puzzle mechanics as Simple As Possible. As it's really not that friendly to those who are dyslexic /and or/ have dyscalculia.
As soon as you enter the cave, you will be given a Key, write it down.
The Keys & Codes given to you in this dungeon are completely randomized. The solutions in the next part are completely hypothetical, and are used as a demonstration on how to solve the puzzles correctly.
Next off: Equip your Charm Bangle.
Reminder: You need to write down every code & clue you come across in this dungeon. I will show you why in the next section.
How to Solve the Puzzles
Each door you examine will have Two Keys on them.
The very first door you will solve will involve the code given to you as soon as you walked into the dungeon and the top left code on the door you are examining.
So, here's a hypothetical solution to the door:
Next we examine the Key in the Top Left Corner in the image above.
In order to unlock the door we need to Add the first key with the second key.
Before inputting the code needed to unlock the door, make sure you write down the numbers shown in the bottom right corner on every door, as you will need that for the next door you attempt to unlock.
Let's try another example.
Did you remember to write down the previous code shown in the bottom right corner of the first door? It's needed to solve this puzzle! Let's get to it.
The code shown on the last door read:
Now let's examine the code written on the current door (Door 10), in the top left corner.
The code shown on this door is:
Now, we add the two keys together to get the code for unlocking this door.
Just like before: Write down the code written in the bottom right corner of this door before inputting the password. You'll need it for the next door.
As you proceed through the doors, the keys & clues will get a bit more difficult.
Luckily with the Charm Bangle, any clues that are affected by the amount of battles you've been in, or the amount of gil you earned will be 0.
Now you may be asking why you need to write down every single code you come across? Well... the simple answer is...
Certain clues will be sneaky! They'll ask you for previous answers to doors. As long as you write everything down you'll be okay! Just look at your paper, find the door number it wants, and the code you inputted for it.
And if you don't want to go through adding the keys from previous doors again, another thing you can do is write down the code itself for a door. Like with our previous examples, you'd write down 9 as the code for door 3, and 77 as the code for door 10. Work smarter, not harder!
Hopefully with these examples you'll be able to solve all the puzzles you come across! If you need help though, don't be afraid to ask for it. Monkey is here 2 help <3
3rd Visit to The New Cave
Yes, unfortunately after you complete all the puzzles in your 2nd visit to the cave, You'll have to redo it all again: for another special item. Luckily with the tutorial I gave earlier, it should be a breeze this time around.
Remember: Write Down Every Code You Come Across!
And the Charm Bangle is your friend!
Rewards For Doing This
Why bother with these puzzles to begin with?
Well... items of course! You'll be rewarded for your hard work with the following items.
Corpus Invictus allow's Paine's Full Throttle dressphere to break HP Limit., and Salvation Promised Garment Grid allows the use of white mage abilities no matter what dressphere is equipped, and Auto-Life becomes available.
Finally Force of Nature adds all elements to attacks, and turns all elemental damage received into HP. Tanky!
I hope this was helpful to people who were struggling with this puzzle.
I made this because I have learning disabilities, and found the tutorial given in game.... just didn't explain it well enough. So I ended up resetting the dungeon several times until I got it. I'm hoping this will save people some time trying to bruteforce their way through it (like i did xp).
