Heretical Rise Walkthrough
Heretical Rise Puzzle solution:
You must head over to the other side of the ravine in the north and find the invisible bridge that takes you across. The invisible bridge starts northeast of the Snow Valley Ruins Overlook grace. From here, make your way across the ravine and as you reach the tower look to your left. You should see very faint mist that guides you on a winding path up to enter the tower from a balcony above (the mist is significantly easier to see at night). Tip: You can use Rainbow Stones or shoot arrows with a bow to mark safe spots to walk on. Better yet, the Icerind Hatchet or another weapon with a ground-effect Ash of War will easily reveal the safe path.
Once you reach the balcony, you'll see two Avionette Soldiers: one close to your left, and another farther on the right. It's easiest to fight them one at a time.
After defeating them, take the stairs on your left (going up) -- the stairs lead to a lift.
Take the lift up, then step forward and turn right to go up winding stairs, but be weary of a final marionette soldier waiting for you as you ascend.
The stairs end at a room with a chest in the middle containing your reward -- Founding Rain of Stars
