Season 3, week 3 quest guide

Damage Opponents Within 30 Seconds of Getting out of the Water (75)

There are plenty of ways to finish this one, but the easiest way is to try for it at Reality Falls. This is a hot drop, but if you get lucky, you can land on the tree, grab a weapon from a chest, then jump into the water below, before getting out and dealing 75 damage to an opponent. Many players will leave their Reality Sapplings in this area, so you can easily ambush them from behind while they’re collecting fruit and other items from their trees, possibly along the water.

Dislodge or Destroy Runaway Boulders with a Melee Weapon (3)

To the northwest of Reality Falls is a landmark called Peril Pass, which contains several runaway boulders. These are large rocks that remain stationary until you destroy the smaller pieces below them with your pickaxe. On the map above are the locations of three runaway boulders in this area, so destroy all three to complete this challenge.

Get Three Seconds of Air Time in a Land Vehicle (1)

This is yet another one with plenty of solutions. We actually completed it while visiting The Temple to the northeast of The Daily Bugle for another quest. To the east of The Temple is a Whiplash sports car, as indicated on the map above. Drive this vehicle to the north side of The Daily Bugle area and use your boost just as you launch from the cliff to gain more air. You’ll reach three seconds of air with ease using this method.

On the eastern side of Shifty Shafts is a boar pen, so head there and ride on the back of one for this quest. We advise turning on Visualize Sound Effects so you can easily find enemies and when you do find one, charge at it with your boar. As long as you make contact, you’ll earn credit for this challenge. If you miss, do a lap around the enemy and give it another try. It’s possible this quest can be completed by damaging NPCs, but we were unable to test it.

Impulse an Enemy Player with a Shockwave Grenade (1)

You can find Shockwave Grenades as floor loot or from chests, but to guarantee finding one, we advise heading to the house marked on the map above, where you’ll find an NPC name Metal Team Leader who sells a pair for 36 gold. After you’ve found a Shockwave Grenade, simply throw it at an enemy player and launch them into the air to complete this quest.

Jump off a Diving Board (3)

There are likely multiple areas with diving boards that will count for this challenge, but the one we know of is located on an elevated piece of land to the south of Rocky Reels, as noted on the map above. You’ll need to use a nearby grapple to reach the top, and then build a structure to cross the gap (make sure you play in a Build Mode to do so). You can dive from the same board two more times to complete this one. Oddly enough, the diving boards by the nearby pools don’t seem to count for this challenge.

Reach Max Shields at a Temple (1)

Map of The Temple in Fortnite.

This one’s simple. You can land near The Temple to get stocked up beforehand or make a beeline for this area right away. Either way, make sure you start with zero shields when you arrive and only begin filling them up once you’re inside The Temple area. It’s best to be on the lookout for Slurp Barrels, some of which can be found within the Temple walls. If you have small shield potions, make sure to drink those first. Once you reach 100 shields in the Temple, you’ll wrap up this straightforward challenge.

How to get Soul Coins in Baldur’s Gate 3
Karlach holding a soul coin.

One of the more rare items you can find in Baldur's Gate 3 is the mysterious Soul Coins. If you're lucky enough to happen upon one, knowing what it even does is one thing, but trying to find more will most likely leave you stumped. While they are quite valuable to sell, they have a far more important use and are limited in number. These rare treasures are tied to a specific companion you can get later on in the game, so finding each one is critical to making the most of their abilities. Being so small, many Soul Coins are easily missed, so here's how to get them all in Baldur's Gate 3.
What do Soul Coins do?

If you were lucky enough to find a Soul Coin on your own, even reading the description wouldn't give you much clue as to what it is or how you're supposed to use it. All it says is "Strange, incomprehensible whispers emanate from the coin, pervading your mind with rage and despair. These coins can power Infernal Engines." Not very helpful, save for that final extra line.

How to beat the Faith-Leap Trial in Baldur’s Gate 3
A Baldur's Gate 3 character lights the way.

The Gauntlet of Shar is, well, quite a gauntlet in Baldur’s Gate 3. This dungeon changes things up a bit by giving you three unique trails to challenge you in different ways. The Faith-Leap Trail is perhaps the most puzzling of them all, and may even appear impossible when you first see it. The thing is, you can't trust your eyes in this trial. There's just too large of a gap between you and the goal for you to cross unless you do as the name suggests and take a leap of faith. But don't just put your faith in Shar and hope for the best -- instead let us show you the path.
How to beat the Faith-Leap Trial

Once you enter this trail after making the blood sacrifice, you will see the Umbral Gem way across a massive death pit. But there actually is a path forward, just an invisible one. The path is the same every time, so as long as you memorize it, you'll be fine, but you should still make a safety save just in case. You only get three tries before anyone you're controlling who falls will die.

What the Mirror of Loss is and how to use it in Baldur’s Gate 3
A wizard talking to a big magic mirror.

In The Forgotten Realms, you can never be sure what to expect from even the most normal character or object. Baldur's Gate 3 loves to subvert your expectations, but also reward you for paying attention and experimenting. If you spot something that looks important, like the Mirror of Loss, it probably is. In this case, when you find the magical mirror, you won't be able to do anything substantial with it. However, keeping it in mind and returning to it could be just what you need to buff up your character's stats a bit more - but it will come at a cost. It's called the Mirror of Loss for a reason, so let's reflect on what it is and how to use it.
Where to find the Mirror of Loss

The massive circular mirror is something you will naturally come across if you're following Shadowheart's companion questline. Starting in Act 2, you will be able to go find it in the Underdark, more specifically the Temple of Shar's Chamber of Loss. It will cost you 1,000 gold to enter, so it's best to know what you're getting for such a steep price.
