Walkthrough Edit

The mosaic pieces are found across the Western Approach in the following locations; the pieces are numbered to match the reference image:

  1. In Sand Rock Mine near the red lyrium vein.
  2. Outside of the Still Ruins.
  3. In Echo Back Fort, past Coracavus inside the area between the Gate of Andoral and the Gate of Toth. The mosaic piece will be located at the back of the fort under the tented area.
  4. In a cave south of Nazaire's Pass Camp. The cave only becomes accessible once the Abyssal High Dragon is killed. The rock blocking the entrance can also be broken by a warrior using Grappling Chain. Moving around the statue in the cave in the left direction brings you first to Piece #4.
  5. Same location as #4. Moving around the statue in the cave in the right direction brings you first to Piece #5.
  6. In the cave at the southern-most part of the region, the cave is protected by an ice-based magic barrier; it is accessible at the end of the side quest On the Chantry Trail.
  7. In the astrarium cave.
  8. Under Griffon Wing Keep in the Old Well, near the The Old Well landmark.
  9. In a cave containing The Thing in the Dark landmark statue. The cave is in Death Drink Springs due east of Griffon Wing Keep and requires the war table operation Crossing the Sulphur Pits to be completed.
  10. Beneath the final platform after climbing down the Hidden Stairway landmark near Craggy Ridge Camp.
  11. In the Lost Wash Creek Cave (called Oasis Cave on the map) near the Lost Idol landmark.
  12. Travel to Echo Back Canyon Camp, head out from camp passing a stairway with two pillars. Once outside, head southwest a little until two tents become visible. The mosaic pieces is found in second tent.
