In the mystical realm of Mount Qaf, where time bends and characters lose themselves in a whirlwind of confusion, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown presents a peculiar quest. Among the lost souls inhabiting this realm is a man who firmly believes that the moon has shattered into fragments, and he is determined to restore it to its celestial glory.
As the chosen one capable of navigating the treacherous Mount Qaf without succumbing to its temporal traps, the fate of the stranded denizens rests in your capable hands. But finding the scattered pieces of the moon won't be a leisurely moonwalk. Prepare to embark on a journey that takes you far and wide across the majestic Mount Qaf, where rescue missions and lunar adventures await.
To embark on the Moon Gatherer's side quest, you must first reach the Sacred Archives. There, you'll either need to descend manually into the prison or allow the jailers to capture you and teleport you there. It's a precarious situation, but hey, saving the moon requires a little risk-taking.
As you navigate through the Archives, dispatching enemies with flair, you'll find yourself in a grand chamber teeming with Mad Alchemists. Beware of the staircases that change height when you least expect it! But fear not, intrepid adventurer, for your goal lies hidden in the depths of this chamber—a mist-shrouded blue moon symbol.
Venturing through the doorway, you'll shatter the wooden wall like a true hero and discover the Moon Gatherer cowering behind a barricade of debris. Engage in conversation with this lunar enthusiast, and he'll reveal that someone has indeed fractured the moon. He implores you to aid him in recovering its scattered fragments.
With newfound purpose, the Moon Gatherer dashes out of the room, commencing your official quest to restore the moon. The first fragment is rumored to lie within The Depths—a room engulfed in sludge. Brace yourself, for this will require dexterity and a can-do attitude.
Descend through the labyrinthine pathways until you reach a room marked by two gears and a viscous liquid. Instead of heading further down, take the upper left path. Continue onward until you encounter a long vertical drop. Carefully maneuver your descent until you find yourself in a small room. From there, proceed upward and to the right, eventually stumbling upon a room with a dead end.
This room is submerged in sludge, posing a slimy obstacle to overcome. Utilize your dash, agile pole swings, and the power of the Shadow of Simurgh to pull down two switches, clearing the path. Once the sludge recedes, head to the corner, interact with the round door, and liberate the Moon Gatherer from his confinement.
The next piece of the moon awaits in the Sunken Harbor—a vast room strewn with debris, including the front half of a shattered ship. Prepare for a battle against crabs and a non-boss version of the Giant Crab, all while balancing on the remnants of a broken vessel. Victory secures the Moon Gatherer's freedom and propels you toward the next destination.
Now, let us venture into the treacherous Pit of Eternal Sands, but proceed only if you possess the Dimensional Claw and Clairvoyance Time Powers. Once equipped with the necessary tools, navigate to the left side of the room where you initially landed. Descend through the small path tucked away in the bottom left-hand corner.
As you drop into a colossal room adorned with buildings and hills, continue downward until you find yourself near another downward path. However, before descending further, break the left wall where the Moon Gatherer's voice beckons. Ascend the path and shatter a set of large pots on the left, liberating the Moon Gatherer from his earthen prison.
The final moon piece lies within the enigmatic Tower of Silence, accessible only after defeating Azhada in the Pit of Eternal Sands and acquiring the Gravity Wings Time Power. Additionally, completing several main story quests will grant you the coveted Fabric of Time power.
Begin your journey from the second unlocked Wak-Wak tree or the Tomb Entrance fast travel point. Navigate through a chamber marked by cascading rocks and either bypass or eliminate the pesky gravekeepers. Descend via slopes, evading colossal ice boulders, until you reach the lower level. There, you'll encounter two more gravekeepers, with the one on the middle platform holding the key to your success.
Overcome the gravekeeper and set the Moon Gatherer free from the grave on its back. Engage in one final conversation, and the Moon Gatherer will share his plans of finding the perfect spot for stargazing. As a token of gratitude for your unwavering dedication, he shall bestow upon you an upgrade that expands your potion storage—a reward fit for a lunar hero.
