Tower of Fantasy is an open world MMORPG based in the future on a planet called Aida. The player can play as a customizable wanderer character that explores the map, collects relics, fights hostile mobs and interacts with NPCs and other items in the game. As you explore this vast extraterrestrial, you will come across various rewards and loot found in chests or hidden puzzles. One such puzzle is the Tar Pit which is a small cave-like structure with black semi-solid substance covering its opening. These pits usually contain rewards in them that can be claimed once the flammable black liquid is cleared. So here’s everything you need to know on how to open Tar Pits in Tower of Fantasy.
How to Solve the Tar Pit Puzzle in Tower of Fantasy
Clearing or opening these tar pits is actually fairly easy. When you first come across these black-liquid structures of mysteries, the game describes it as a “cave full of flammable petroleum blocks” with emphasis on the word “flammable.” This hint clearly indicates the fact that the tar pits would ignite and melt when brought in contact with fire.
So all you need to do to solve the puzzle is use a Flame Elemental Weapon to set the black petroleum blocks on fire. A good option for this is the “R-Composite Bow” that a lot of players receive during the tutorial. If you don’t have the bow or any flame elemental weapon at the moment, you can always use a Fire Core on the tar and it will work just as well. Fire Cores can be obtained by breaking the Fiery Rock Pillars found abundantly across the map.
Once you set the black-liquid on fire, it will appear to melt and then reveal the loot inside that can then be claimed by interacting with it. Usually players can expect to find either a Black or a Gold Nucleus inside. Along with the loot, players also receive exploration points as a reward. Although, keep in mind that Tar Pits that respawn don’t always contain the loot in them.
