Badge of Vows 79 is a quest item obtained during the quest From A Different Sky 8. The badge is the remnant of a former Rift Stone, collecting it earns a reward of rift crystals.
- "A badge that glimmers with a mysterious light. Similar medals can be found scattered around Gransys."
The tower is easily accessed - a stairway from the main area of the castle leads up to the battlement walkway. However the tower top is too high to reach using standard jumps, and requires some method of gaining additional height to reach it.
The badge is hidden under a box in the circular upper area of the tower. If the box is smashed there is a chance the badge will fall down a crack in the structure, and not be retrievable. If the box is lifted rather than smashed the badge should be easily retrievable.
Any spellcaster class with a frigor type spell can easily reach the block. Cast frigor on the walkway (or on the adjacent wall) to create a stepping stone of ice - the additional height provided by the frigor block makes the tower an easy jump to reach.
Pawns or other persons in the range of the frigor spell will prevent the block from forming. An additional complication is that sometimes a block will form, but not be climbable - if this occurs simply try again.
Long jump method
Spellcasters with the skill levitate (as well as vocations with "long jump" skills ie Mystick Knight's Sky Dance.) may obtain the upper area of the tower by taking a jump from the broken wall on the right (inner castle side) of the walkway.
With levitate the jump is difficult to time, but does not require a running start.
There a several Barrels within the castle - these can be placed against the wall to create "stepping stones" to the upper area.
For vocations with Double Vault or Levitate skills a single barrel will be enough. Shorter Fighter or Warrior Arisen may need to stack a second barrel to gain enough height (see Barrel for stacking tips) - explore the castle to find enough (three) barrels.
In general pawns will smash barrels, so release them first if attempting complicated barrel stacking.
The strider skill Stepping Stone, used on a pawn, or object (box or barrel) transported to the corner tower, could be used to reach the badge.
A double vault from the broken parapet wall on the walkway is possible but very difficult - an easier but riskier jump is that from the other wall structure abutting the tower to the lowest point of the tower's rim - if this jump is not successful the fall is far, and likely fatal.
- In the case that the box is smashed and the badge is unreachable simply exiting the area (ie use a Ferrystone) and returning will return it to its rightful place.
