  • Each checkpoint is indicated by a Waterlogged Chest. Upon hitting one, you will gain Return to Checkpoint which will allow you to return to that checkpoint until the next checkpoint is hit or until you've reached the end of the puzzle.
  • It is not necessary to visit all the checkpoints in order to loot the final chest; however, the checkpoints must all be visited in order to obtain credit for the achievement. Players who have been teleported to the top may glide down to trigger the checkpoints.
  • Roughly one third of the puzzle contains orbs of Unbound Magic, most of which indicate the way needed to go.
  • Mounts are allowed for this jumping puzzle, making climbing the cliffs much simpler with the Springer.
