Steps to activate the Tower

The vast majority of reconnaissance tours require just a few simple steps to get under way. As far as the Watchtower is concerned, the story is a little different. As mentioned above, it is an obligatory step to move forward in the main story of this opus.

Once you've completed the game's introduction and found yourself on the surface of Hyrule, head straight to to the Fort de Guet you will recover the screen and activate your first tower at the same time.

In the Fort, find the building that houses Pru'Ha. It will give you a quest entitled Strange phenomenon at the château. This involves assisting the head of the guard, Captain Hozlocated in the ruins of the castle. Simply follow the yellow indicator to reach it easily (it's in the Third Quarters). Talk to him and then turn around to go back to the Fort.

Pru'Ha will then tell you about the reconnaissance tricks and his wish to activate them all again. However, he'll need some time to prepare. To pass the time, have a chat with Foskorin the centre of the Fort. It will open the survival shelter. Go down and relax in the available bed. This allows you to get through the day and get on with your mission.

Return to Pru'Ha, who is now in the Watchtower. She and her assistant will activate all the Kingdom's towers and then send you to check that they are working properly. To activate the Watchtower, simply place the Pru'Ha tablet on the terminal. You will receive the paravane after a few more exchanges.
