Lessons Learned recorder 2b.jpgVista route
Use the Thermal Tube north of the waypoint to get launched towards the Gate of Fire point of interest. From there, run northwest to get the Oakheart Essence past the Diving Goggles. From the Oakheart Essence, glide south west, looking for a lower platform filled with destroyers. Enter a small tunnel on this ledge and go to the very end of the tunnel, and use the Oakheart's Reach skill to get the recording which can be found on the ledge above.

An alternative way is to head towards the vista in Rata Arcanum by using the thermal tube north of the Heathen's Hold Waypoint. In the corner by the western bouncing mushroom below the vista is a hard to notice hole that drops down to the recording.

Pick up the Oakheart Essence on top of the arch and glide northwest. Use Oakheart's Reach to get into the cave full of grubs and bats past the earth elementals. Head west and deeper into the cave.

Look above you for a small crevice with blue hanging strands. Pull yourself into the crevice using no more than two charges of Oakheart's Reach. Once inside, use the last charge to pull yourself upward to the recorder.

Jump off the edge and continue in this direction until you spot an area filled with wasps, you can either drop down to it or continue gliding if you are able, but start heading south east, looking for an Oakheart's Essence in front of a rockface with blue glowing plants. Pick up the Oakhearts Reach from the Essence, and look south for a crevice with Cave Bats inside, and use Oakheart's Reach to enter it, then make a right when inside to find the recording. Alternatively, if you are on the layer below the waypoint, it is south of Viraddi' Salvation, so if you approach from the cave with Rolling Devils, look up for a ledge with blue fungus hanging below. The cave is above those fungus strands.
