Percival Rackham's Trial Walkthrough

Before Percival Rackham's Trial


Head north to San Bakar's Tower and talk to Professor Fig

Kill the goblins in front of the tower (using stealth is possible)
∟ If you defeat the enemies that appears, more will appear which will force you to continue battling

Go inside the Tower and talk to Professor Rackham's portrait upstairs

On the lower floor, examine traces of Ancient Magic and start the trial

Use Stealth If You Don't Like Combats

If you are not good at combats with multiple enemies at once, you may use a strategy where you will need to sneak behind enemies one by one and eliminate them. Defeat them quickly with Accio and Incendio, then wait for the next target Disillusionment.

During Percival Rackham's Trial


Go down the stairs and enter inside

Examine the traces under the broken bridge and proceed

Examine the traces in the back hall and go through the archway in the direction you came from.

Go deeper and you'll find multiple Keepers to battle.
Expelliarmus is effective against large enemies

Use Accio to pull the moving platform towards you and progress.
There is a trace on the platform in the back on the right side, so investigate it.

Don't go through the arch that appears, use the floating foothold to move to the other side and go back.

Combat multiple Keepers

Interact using Magic with the scaffolding on a bridge

Go through the arch from the other side of the path you came from and create a foothold when there is no bridge

Using Accio, pull the floating scaffolding behind where the bridge used to be.

Go through the arch from the side where the bridge is visible and make the bridge appear

Proceed using Accio in the platform that floats from the bridge
▼ How to get the treasure chest is explained below

You will need to combat Keepers as you move forward.

Examine the tracks and pull the platform with Accio

Use Accio near the arch to go around to the other side

Go through the arch from the side where the treasure chest is and pull the platform that appears with Accio

Pull the first platform with Accio and get on it, and change the platform over the arch like the image

Proceed to the room in the back with Accio
There are 2 Wiggenweld Potions under the stairs
You can get 5 from the treasure box ahead of you.

Go to the back and engage in combat with the Keeper
A Boss battle will begin when all Keepers are defeated

Boss Pensieve Guardian Strategy

Damage Spells Attack Patterns

  • Trampling AoE Shock Wave
  • Color Orb Attack
  • After Color Orb, Magic Orb
  • After Down, AoE Shock Wave

Its attack damage pattern is very straight forward and can be easily countered when you get used to it.

Elemental orbs can be destroyed and flinched by hitting them with spells that match their color. You can distinguish spells with their color like red for Damage Spells, yellow for Levioso, and purple for Accio.

Evasion → Damage Spells Are Basic

Take advantage of the resting time that occurs after the Trampling and Orbs, to attack the Guardian. After you destroy the orbs, it is recommended to take the down with Ancient Magic.

Elements To Be Unlocked After Completing

After completing the trial, talk to Charles Rookwood, and at this time the Exploration element "Traces of Ancient Magic" will be released. You can increase your Ancient Magic meter, so try it out if you see it on the map!
