Disambig icon.png This article is about the fountain in Xera's Twisted Castle. For the one found in Super Adventure Box, see Fountain (Super Adventure Box).


Fountains can be found within Xera's Twisted Castle. During the Navigate the Twisted Castle encounter, these allow the players with Forsaken Thicket Waters mastery to mitigate the effects of Madness. Two options are present when interacting with a fountain, one granting madness immunity for a short time, and the other removing 10 stacks of madness.

Leave. (applies the soothing waters effect)


  • Removing stacks of madness is, by the numbers, a better option. 10 stacks is equal to 50 seconds of passively accumulating madness, whereas Soothing Waters only lasts for 30 seconds. However, if the character looks at the rotating spire for more than 5 seconds, Soothing Waters is better.
