  • Relic location in "Beneath The Ashes" DLC

    After you get the water wheel spinning, some areas will fill with water. You will end up going back to the area with the dragon tile puzzle. Before you climb up to the puzzle, go to the opposite side of the room of the columns that spin with blades when the puzzle is completed. You can find a pole with the top slightly above water, and a ledge sticking out by it. Get on top of the ledge, and wall jump to the pole sticking out of wall above the ledge. Wall swing with grapple to reach a platform that is up a little higher. Hold Y, and climb up the grapple wire a bit to reach it, then swing over to it. You can go in a little room there. Slide down one of the poles to the bottom, and walk to the end. You will find a small tunnel. Crouch and walk through it. On the other side is a small water filled area. Get up on the right side, then jump over to the left side to find the Relic.
