The Secrets of the Forest is the third adventure in the Peaks of Time. It’s also the second that rewards an artifact.
Every time you defeat an enemy in this adventure a vine will grow in a set place that will block your path.
This isn’t really much of an issue for the first 3 treasure chests, but for the last one you will only be able to defeat a certain amount of enemies before it is permanently blocked off and you’ll have to restart.
It’s impossible to get the last treasure by defeating all of the enemies that are in the way.
So how do we get around this? You need to be “Blessed” by the forest, which will open up a hidden path to the artifact.
You can receive the blessing by completing the “Trial of the Forest”, which is an enemy team that you must defeat.
Sounds easy, eh? But there’s a catch; you have to win the fight with only Wilders heroes.
