A Trial for All Seasons Walkthrough

An elven structure of sorts can be found east to the Driftwood-field Waypoint, across the river. There will be four statues surrounding a brazier in the location. (co-ordinates X; 445, Y:340)

To pass the trial, you will need to generate specific surfaces or clouds near the four statues.

The riddle is:

Winter shudders with ice and snow.
Autumn rumbles, the sky lit aglow.
Summer burns, air fiery as a hearth.
Spring quenches, with bloody rebirth.

 

  • Hero of Winter - Create an Ice Surface.
    • Generate an Ice Surface directly using abilities (Hail Strike, Freezing Arrow, Ice Fan).
    • Generate an Ice Surface by combining a Water Surface (Rain, Water Balloon, Water Arrow) and an ability that freezes Water Surfaces into Ice Surfaces (Global Cooling or Winter Blast).
  • Hero of Autumn - Create an Electrified Steam Cloud.
    • Generate an Electrified Steam Cloud directly using abilities (Closed Circuit, Static Cloud Arrow).
    • Generate an Electrified Steam Cloud by first combining a Water Surface (Rain, Water Balloon, Water Arrow) and Fire Surface (Fire Arrow, Searing Daggers, Phoenix Dive) to generate a Steam Cloud. Then shock the Steam Cloud with an ability that sets Shocked status (Shocking Touch, Electric Discharge, Shocking Arrow).
  • Hero of Summer - Create a Fire Cloud.
    • Generate a Fire Cloud directly using abilities (Laser Ray, Fire Slug).
    • Generate a Fire Cloud by converting a Fire Surface (Fire Arrow, Searing Daggers, Phoenix Dive) into a Cloud using the Aerotheurge spell Vaporize.
  • Hero of Spring - Create a Blood Surface.
    • Generate a Blood Surface directly by using abilities (Raining Blood, Flesh Sacrifice), or using a bloated corpse's ability in front of the totem.
    • Create a regular Blood Surface by dealing Vitality damage using physical damage to any non-Undead chracter (physical basic attack against target with no armor, piercing attack, Flesh Sacrifice, Teleport nearby Squirrel)

Be prepared; as soon as you light up the final totem, four challengers will appear and initiate combat with you. Each challenger (Winter, Summer, Autumn, Spring) have an immunity to their corresponding element, and are rather strong if you are the same level as them. They are level 14. Defeat them all and the brazier will speak to you, congratulating you on your victory and spawning a chest, along with a phoenix heart for the taking. The quest is complete at this point.

 

Rewards:

  • 20775XP for each challenger killed, for a total of 83,100XP.
  • 51900XP on quest completion.
  • A Phoenix Heart (which grants the skill "Flaming Tongues" if eaten by an elf) and a Chest will also be spawned on quest completion.

 

Tips & Tricks

  • Spell, Summon Fire Slug (Sourcerer's Ring) can also be used to activate the statue of Summer since it has the spell Laser Ray.
  • Creating a pool of blood to activate the statue of Spring is also a possibility. You can do this by stabbing a companion near the statue.
  • You need 1 point in Polymorph and 1 point in Aerotheurge to use Vaporize.
  • A blood surface for Spring can be generated if you have an elf character eat body parts in close proximity to the statue, preventing the need to stab yourself or your friends.

      I did this on a solo character, the easiest way to do this is to craft scrolls that create direct surfaces, no need to learn skillbooks and waste memory slots.

      Hail strike for Winter (paper + high quality water essence + chub fish), Closed Circuit for Autumn (paper + source orb + lucky rabbit paw), Laser Ray for Summer (paper + high quality fire essence + nails). You can buy the scrolls or ingredients from vendors in Driftwood/Undertavern.

      Create blood at Spring and then position yourself so that the Closed Circuit creates the cloud close enough to Autumn. Cast all three scrolls and you'll be fine.

        This is the dumbest quest I have ever encountered in this game on my first playthrough.

        Creating Blood = Easy, barely an inconvenience.

        Creating the Fire Cloud and Frozen Water, and electrified steam = Dumb because it lasts a whole 2 turns and there's no time to do all 3 as a single Player Character even with 4 npcs in your party. The ice melts, and the fire cloud dissapears, and the electricity goes away from the cloud before you finish and talk to the dumb altar.

        I am an archer, with Lohse being my "Mage", and Red Prince Duel Wield Melee and Fane 2-handed melee.

        I don't understand how you are supposed to do this fast enough outside of co-op mode

          THE KEY for me was... get blood going.. teleport over the electrified steam pumpkin.. Load one guy up with Hail Strike and Laser Ray. The clincher?? save and go to the main menu and let my laptop cool down, and start fresh so that there wasn't so much lag in between casting spells (which I was using the number buttons to initiate).

            DE on tactician. Best way I found after multiple tryout (2 physical lone wolves with scrolls like peasants)

            To do before : Rain on the winter, make cloud on the autumm and blood rain on spring since it's doesnt decay

            Timing and order is crucial otherwise you lose them. Icetrail on the winter, pheonix dive and vaporize on the summer and electric discharge on the autumm

              Super easy to figure out riddle, impossible to start if you don't have very specific spells set up on your characters because they stay active for very short time and you need them all active at the same time.

              • This effing sh** is impossible to light up. I don't know if it's because I'm on tactical, but the statues 'live' status ends in literally seconds. I can't even switch players and use spells fast enough for all to get activated. BS

                  You have to worry about 3 totems since blood will remain on the ground.

                  Use blood rain on the spring totem. Use rain on the winter totem. Use rain and then a fire spell to create a cloud for the autumn totem.

                  Now use a frost spell that isnt a mapwide aoe (global cooling), i used hail storm. Quickly bless it. Then use a thunder spell on the autumn cloud and lazer ray on the summer totem.

                  This worked for me.

                  Be prepared for a tough fight. Im level 13 and an enemy one shot two of my members in a single turn.

                      wtf is up with the damage from these guys? idk if I'm somehow behind in gear or what but I'm only on classic mode and they hit for like triple what I can at lvl 14.

                        Hi, Ive made this quest today [20/08/2021 in DE and Tactician Mode, with Duo Lone Wolf and playing alone by myself with no mods. Steps:

                        1. Create a blood surface under the spring tree. I ve made it with blood rain. This tree will be always activated since the blood does not dissapear.
                        2. Prepare a cloud in the Autumn tree ( just the cloud ). In my case I created water under the tree and the fired it to create the cloud.
                        3. Then have it with quick access to your way of creating ICE, BLESS (divine spell), and Cloud of Fire
                        4. Begin with the ice to the Winter tree.
                        5. Bless the ice.

                        -- STEP 5 is the MAKE IT step. This step makes the surface persist for more turns so you have time to activate the other 2 trees.

                        6. I used the normal thunder spell to set the cloud electrified ( Autumm )
                        7. Finally I used piro laser into the Summer tree.

                        Got the mission done and the fight started.

                          I just completed this quest in tactician it is possible but you have to activate them all in VERY QUICK SUCCESSION.

                            theory on why the totems don't stay activated once the hazard disappears. its very possible this a tactician mode only thing. saw somebody reply to a message here mentioning it and I wanted to spread the word that this might be why so many people are either frustrated/confused about it (like i was) or arguing with other people about it.
                            if someone could run a test for me that would be wonderful. I know for a fact that in my current tactician run the totems do not stay active. in my previous playthrough on normal the totems stayed active after the hazards disappeared.

                              I came across this at level 16, and they still hit for 1,400+ damage (leaving me with 200ish hp). And knocked me down for 2 turns. I killed 2 before they got one turn and the other two before they got a second turn.

                                This quest sucks!! They do not stay activated. Anyone saying they do if you talk to them is wrong lmao. The only one that stays up is blood. The rest go away quickly even if you talk to them!

                                  That is BY FAR the worst designed quest in the game (for obvious reasons), there is no way to complete it on your own. I'm doing a solo rogue run and this will have to be the only quest i have to leave unfinished.

                                    There is a platform on the rigth that you can use to teleport one of the challenge into the elf camp where you can have 2 members of your team wating. The one that initiate the fight can become invisible and join later. I did on level 13 in tactical mode.
                                    Reward is pretty lame though.

                                      Also, there are some noxious bulbs nearby, just teleport them to the location; one can generate an electrified steam cloud and the other creates a fire surface

                                        I struggled to actually start this quest because all of the required surfaces except blood eventually decay; ice thaws, fire clouds go to smoke, etc. But by the entrance to the sawmill, there's a permanent cloud of cursed electrified steam that won't decay. You can move the cursed electrified steam with Terrain Transmutation all the way to the Trial Area, and it works even though it's cursed. Now you only have to worry about Winter and Summer.

                                          One of the stupid "balanced" fights. Two partymembers (lvl 14) got oneshoted in first round. Ragequit and will try again with higher lvl to gain lvl 14 reward -.-

                                            Advice for doing this on a controller solo:

                                            Drop a blood pool under the appropriate one, it stays forever. Also create your steam cloud as it seems to stay as well.

                                            It takes too long to switch characters, the trees will deactivate before you use each ability.

                                            Using one character, you can use scrolls or arrows: Frost, then static, then laser ray the final tree. May take a couple tries but if you aim quickly you can pull it off. I used Ice Fan, Electric Discharge, Laser Ray.

                                            I recommend this order as the fire clouds seem to last the shortest time, with frost seeming to last the longest.. Don't attempt to switch characters because the ice will melt before you get the fire clouds up.

                                              Quest seems bugged in DE. Statues don't stay activated (I thought I must have to do it in order, which is why I came to look up the quest, since the order the flame brazier gives didn't work), but apparently not. I do winter first, it sort of activates (wisps flying around it), it talks to me, but then as soon as I target another statue the winter one goes dormant again. And none of the other ones light up at all.

                                                  If you are playing with a controller (on PC at least) the test is (borderline?) impossible due to how long it takes to switch characters and 3 of the 4 trees surface effects remaining only 2 seconds.

                                                  I switched to keyboard and mouse and after setting up ifan with static cloud arrow, fans with freezing arrow, and red prince with laser ray was able to do it first try (after about 50 on controller).

                                                  Received only 10400*4 + 15575 = 57175 XP in DE. Oh, and 435 gold and a rare (not even epic) level 14 belt. Neat. Plus a skill I had five levels ago.

The melee and bow ones crit a lot, so don’t be like me and forget to engage without any source points left on your main DPS/caster because you can’t use source vampirism on the spirits. If I could have cast Deploy Mass Traps, this fight would probably have ended in three turns, at most.

                                                                  • Anonymous

This will still give them the Flaming tongues skill even if you go out of elf form

I had a team of Fane (necro/pyro/poly), Red Prince (fighter), Ifan (ranger/summoner), and Lohse (hydro/aero). Lohse had the Glowing Idol of Rebirth and the Morning Person talent. I positioned Lohse and Ifan on the platform before the battle began. First round, I focused on stripping magic armor from a couple enemies. Fane summoned bone widow. Lohse sent Autumn on a short beach vacation with teleport. From there, it's just basic CC with focus fire. Petrify, shock/stun, knock down, charm. Ifan summoned and powered up incarnate champion. Once one is down (and another is trying to get back from the beach), the battle is nearly won. Just keep your people armored and take the enemies out one by one. Don't be discouraged if your first try is a disaster like mine was. On my second try, using some revised tactics and planning, I easily mopped the floor with them.

If you're hoping to pop the fight with a single character doing all of the actions, you have to plan a little. 1) Blood on Spring (blood stays) 2) Position your dude(s) and quicksave. 3) Water puddle to Winter, water puddle to Autumn (I used balloons) 4) Fireball to Autumn 5) Ice to Winter (I used a scroll, recommend the same since it feels faster to re-up than casting) 6) Shock to Autumn 7) Laser Ray to Summer Took me a try or two to not get clumsy when clicking abilities. There is no forgiveness for mistakes or misclicks after the fireball, so adjust your ability bar accordingly so you aren't fishing for items, as you don't have time to fish for items once that steam cloud is up. Well, I didn't have time; you might be faster than I.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

Summer might have a random location phonix dive so can't tell this method is repeatable for others but best if he goes first for this to work. 1. Have the fastest mage teleport Winter in such a way AoEs hit all 3 (summer spring winter) if possible, next Worm tremor with torturer talent on all of them should make Spring harmless (even if it says he has earth immunity it only protects him from damage). 2. Cast Rain and obliterate their 3 with Lightning damage (stun). 3. Autumn shouldnt be a problem at all after wiping the rest. 4. ??? 5. Profit

                                                                                • This fight is no joke; especially if you are at or below level 14. You absolutely must use CC to win this fight. For your ranged characters, it helps to teleport them up on the platform behind the Spring Totem tree. Be wary though! The Autumn enemy (the one with two daggers) can teleport up to them and one shot them easily. CC him first. Your next CC target should absolutely be Spring (the 2hander guy.) He hits incredibly hard, and can one shot two characters at once with his Blitz. If you cannot CC those two, then high Physical armor is a must for this fight; regardless, you should dedicate a character to improving your team's protections as much as possible. Winter shouldn't be too much of a problem. I melted him (sorry) quite fast with a necromancer, so I didn't get to see all of his abilities, but he didn't seem to do anything terribly strong. Strong physical attacks followed by a battering ram or slam will take him out of the fight for good. I kept Summer (the ranger) CC'd as a precaution, but because of his starting position in the fight, he was unable to shoot my ranged characters on the platform without repositioning himself. He targeted my other characters instead. Idk if he starts every fight like this, so YMMV. If he doesn't crit, Summer won't one-shot any of your team. Good luck!

                                                                                  • Anonymous

Spring beats my tank in 1 turn (1500 damage in 2 hits), and summer, who is the first character to move, shoot my ranger or mage (they was on the plataform) and insta kill too. I will try later again... someone have a tip? I'm playing 4 characters and is my first game in classic.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

The fight was easy for me. I had them all gathered in the middle and removed the magic armor of the enemies asap (which is not that much). Then used medusa head with my two polymorphs and gg. I think one of the enemies had more magic armor and I focused him with Sebille.

The blood stays on the ground so the totem will stay activated (the purple swirl around the totem indicates it's active). 2) Next cast rain on the autumn totem, followed by Searing Daggers to create a steam cloud. The steam cloud should stay in place which will prime this totem for the next steps. 3) Now add the following skills to your bar: Electric Discharge, Laser Ray, and Hail Strike. 4) Quickly cast Electric Discharge on the vapor cloud near the Autumn totem, Laser Ray on the Summer totem, and Hail Strike on the Winter totem. No reason you shouldn't be able to do this solo. I should also mention that the amount of damage the spells do have nothing to do with defeating the riddle. You could run back to the boat and have a melee character spec into the skills needed and still qualify. All the riddle cares about is that you create the correct conditions using the correct spells within the given time limit.

Have to do it all within 8s before clouds go away, as talking to them after doing objective does not save progress, have to have them all up at once...

The blood one will stay up but the other three seem to have only about 10 seconds of actuvation. What I did was go into the nearby trap field and teleport the blue plant which generates the thunder cloud to the autumn one. This made it so I only had to activate the summer and the winter in that 10 second window.

                                                                                                                    Also humblebrag, I was able to beat the enemies first try at level 12 on tactician difficulty. Although the fight took an hour, involves lots of running around, and I used 4 revive scrolls.

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

I have The Red Prince and my character as warriors and the Lone Wolf perk. The Red Prince has a summoning level of 16 and both characters have basic attacks of around 300 damage. Everything I have encountered has been easy due to my main character and the Red Prince also knowing restoration abilities such as Rejuvination, Mind Mending, Armor of Frost and Fortify. Mages are cool and all, but warriors are best for solo play.

Makes the fight so much easier :)

The blood surface is the only one that stays, the 3 others you need to do them quickly so that they are all activated at the same time ...

The quest log even says that we "solved the riddle and were attacked" but nothing ever happened.

                                                                                                                                    Maybe it's related to the recent patch.

It's a bit time consuming but if you've got a summoner in your party and no other way to get blood or storm clouds that might be the best route for you.

                                                                                                                                        Winter also accepts a frost grenade, though summer is very fussy and really does seem to only accept laser ray. I tried a bunch of different spells and items which make fire surfaces and/or induce burning but only laser ray worked.
