How to Rebuild The Drain Pumps & Drain The Water
During this task, there is a high chance that you will not be able to do it on the first try. Leave all the valuable loot and take only the resources you need.
Here’s what you need to prepare your materials for:
- 3 Replacement Pipes
Forge and hearth are needed to create pipes because they can only be carried in the hands, which will not allow you to quickly cross the water. It is worth noting that a small Camp Hearth will not work for you. Piers, you have to build over the water to make a bridge. For them, you need about 30 Ubasam Wood. Also, enemies can sometimes spawn near the building with the pipes, so you can equip your sword just in case.
When everything is ready, go to the left to the edge of the platform that is partially underwater and diagonally place the piers in front of you one by one so that you get to the other side to a small waterfall. Do this as quickly as possible, as the Watcher can appear at any time. When you get there you will be relatively safe, but still continue to move towards the building carefully and quickly.
When you get inside the building, place the hearth and then the forge next to it. After that, craft 3 Replacement Pipes. The first one should be placed inside the building.
The second one should be placed behind the building. It is quite high, so to get there you need to build a platform or climb a pipe. You can also throw the Replacement Pipe, but if you miss it, it can fall into a purple fog.
You could see the third pipe on the side of the building as you approached it.
When the pipes are repaired, return to the building. It has a mechanism with a large gear on the side and a lever that needs to be pulled. Once you pull it, the objective will be completed.
