Offering behind cabbage house doesn't work

Post by Zyxil » September 25th, 2018, 3:58 pm

Just what the title says. I have tried several times to get the offering to work. The two pairs of codes from the wheel are 88 55 and 82 49. These translate to Fermented Spirit - Lily Seed and Wood - Bone Shards. I place both pairs of these items in the offering slots and nothing happens.

I was able to get the Blazing Star, so I'm not completely stoopid.

Any ideas or is it just bugged?

I noticed the same thing and have got several other offerings to work.

Aren't there two totems on each offering stone? I see one at the top left and right and never know which is which.

You should get only one pair of numbers if using the wheel correctly.
Match the inner wheel with the arrow pointing to the left symbol and the outer wheel with the moons so that the full moon of the wheel is at the moon phase of the right symbol.

If I recall correctly, the offering at that shrine requires Beast and Cabbage as one item.

I haven't found the recipe for Beast and Cabbage yet, so I can't tell you where to obtain it yet.

From the notes I'd written you need "meat" & "beast & cabbage"
The recipe for this one is, I believe, found in the inn on the island.

Thanks for the reminder that I hadn't backtracked to this one. :)

I just did it with meat and "beast and cabbage" as the offerings.

Except each offering stone has two astrological symbols so who knows which one you're supposed to line up with.

The first sign is for the arrow wheel (inner), the second is for the moon wheel (outer).

I've got about half of the ones I've found to work. What I'm suggesting is that there are two constellations - so therefore 4 two digit numbers. Or are you suggesting that you use both constellations simultaneously, ie one for small wheel and one for middle wheel? That doesn't seem to be what is explained in the PDF

Left constellation is for the arrow (the one beneath The arrow), right constellation is for the moon (the one beneath the moon...). And then you check to make sure the moon is pointing in the right direction. That's it, one set of numbers that are correct.

Yes, you use the two constellations simultaneously. Think of the codewheel as 3 discs. The largest disc on the bottom is the base. The other two discs are used to determine the solution. The smallest disc (top) contains the arrow. That arrow should point to the first constellation (left). The middle disc contains some moons that look like ) O (. On the altar, check which way the moon is facing and line the O (full moon) on the middle wheel up with the ( or ) on the base. This will yield your result.

In the following image, the code wheel is set for Bear (left constellation) and tree (right constellation) and moon facing left:

I should also point out that one member of our community was awesome enough to create an HTML version of the codewheel: https://jsfiddle.net/xk3obtcL/3/embedded/result/
