  • In order to find the Right Medallion player will have to head to Fort Faroth. While you are heading there you’ll surely come across some enemies that you can avoid fighting. After you reach there, be aware of the white bats which are pretty deadly and poisonous. Simply go ahead take the ladder, open the chest, and there you have it, the Right Medallion piece.
  • After that, head to Fort Haight in the west, to find the Left Medallion. And there you’ll come across many creatures and a Knight trying to knock you down. Here you will be required to fight the Knight at some point or else he won’t leave you alone. But you can always avoid the other creatures. Once done, head up the ladder and in the chest, you’ll find the second piece successfully.
  • Once you have both of the Medallion pieces head to the Grand Lift of Dectus located at the end of Bellum Highway in northern Liurnia. The route is pretty long so we recommend you get a horse to reach the area easily and quickly.
