Horizon Forbidden West: How to Solve Relic Ruins: The Stillsands
This Relic Ruin is located in the south of the Tenakth Clan Lands. Nearby are Salvage Contractor: The Stillsands to the west and Hidden Ember to the south. Above pictured is where it appears on the map. Note: Before attempting this Relic Ruin, you should first get the Diving Mask by completing the Main Quest, The Sea of Sands.
How to Complete Relic Ruins: The Stillsands
Follow these steps to complete Relic Ruins: The Stillsands and collect Ornament #5: Go Big.
On one side of the building is a point where you can rappel down. Do this to get inside. Turn around and there is some Firegleam you should blow up.
After that, go through and there's a crate inside. Move it so you can climb up to the raised ledge. Up there, turn the valve to start the flow of water.
Go back down and move the crate so it covers the drain in the wall. Doing this will flood the ruin with water.
Swim back out into the main area. With the room flooded, swim over to the southeast corner to find a set of stairs and a key. Pick up the key.
The door you need to unlock with this key is in the opposite corner. Swim over to it and unlock the door. Through the door is another crate. Pull it out into the main area so it's floating in the deep water.
Now, swim down and through to the room where the first crate is blocking the drain. Get up onto the ledge where the valve is and use the Pullcaster to remove the crate from the drain, lowering the water again. Now you have two crates.
Grab the second crate and move it over to the above location. Then, push the first crate back into the drain to raise the water once more.
Return to the second crate, which is now floating, and you'll be able to reach the handhold and start climbing. At the very top, turn around and pick up the Ornament.
