There are 30 puzzling challenges that you need to complete in From Dust. Check out this guide to find out how to achieve the best times and successfully finish all the puzzles.
You’ll have plenty to do in this challenge. First, note that you get the power of earth and vegetation. When you pick up a ball of earth, the grass comes with it. Use amplify breath to absorb earth and dump it so that the patch of grass being set on fire is connected to the explosive trees on the rim of the pool. Make sure you keep the fire going. Now you can block off the source with earth and create a path over to the repel water stone. Send your guy over there. A path opens up once the water drains out, so don’t worry about trying to pile earth so that he can get over the top of the rim. Raise the repel water stone using earth and let the challenge play out.
Trees of Water
A fire will set off all of the water plants above your village, drowning it. I’m sure there’s probably some clever way of doing this, but if you want the fastest time, simply use amplify breath to manually extinguish the fire. It sounds wrong, but it works.
Deadly CrossingMove towards the center back of the huge pool of water and look around for the source. Once you’ve found it, grab some lava and cover it up. Now use more lava to build up a bridge for your men to cross over to the other side. The actual rock won’t allow your men to cross, but it will act as a foundation. Send your men to the totem on the other side, and begin dumping as much earth as possible on the rock you’ve just created. The sand will accumulate and the men will be able to get over to the other side. The water will also stop rushing over the top since you’ve closed off the source.
Wagons of Fire
You’ll have to work overtime to get this one to play out properly. You may notice a fire plant on some land that’s not connected to your main totem area. It will begin to set the vegetation on fire. You must let this fire make it all the way to your main totem area. First, scoop up some water and dump it all at once on the water trees that are in the way of the fire. That will set them off, so they won’t stop the fire when it comes. Now find the other set of water trees, the ones that are in a ditch of sorts, and do the same thing here. You’ll need to scoop the water out of this ditch though, and there’s a lot, so hurry up. Once the fire gets about halfway through the hill with the first set of water trees, use the jellify water power and start clearing the water between that hill and the next piece of land. The vegetation will grow on the land below the water and the fire will be able to continue on. Continue scooping water out of the ditch whenever you get time and then turn off the jellify water power when the fire has made it over to the other side.
You should be able to scoop all of the water out of the ditch by the time the fire gets there. You may have to deal with a couple of water plants that are left over, but it’s no big deal. Use jellify water and scoop the water out of the way so that the fire can continue on to the main land with your totem on it. You’ll want the fire to get to the explosive trees on the rock surrounding the repel lava stone. However, you also want the fire to not reach your totem, so while you’re clearing the way for the fire, lay down some jellified water in lines that stop the fire from spreading beyond the explosive tree area. After the explosive trees go off, turn off jellified water to quench all of the fire and send a man for the knowledge.
This is difficult in almost every respect. You won’t know what’s coming until it’s already there, it takes a while to finish the challenge, and half the time you can’t finish it (or you can’t finish with a decent time) because the A.I. likes to shaft you. You will need patience for this.
To start, move the first totem further up the hill, near the repel water knowledge. While it’s being moved, use infinite earth to raise the village. The land will shift downwards, and water will come rushing at it. You need to keep this village alive until they can relocate the totem. When they’ve put it down, have the men go for the repel water and repel lava stones, and have some people go for the second totem. Use infinite earth to build up a wall on the edge of the cliff in the area with the repel lava stone and the second totem. This entire thing will start falling, so you need to keep the water out. The moment your men have captured the second totem, send people for the third totem on top of the plateau. As soon as possible, have your men move the second totem onto the patch of land at the bottom of the plateau. You’ll need to fill in the gap with earth to get them all across. While you’re doing all of that, feel free to shore up your makeshift walls with more earth. It can’t hurt. After sending men for the third totem and moving the second totem, you can stop. Make sure the second totem has both repel lava and repel water, which it should by now. Your men will soon capture the third totem and then the knowledge will make its way up there. A tsunami comes along, and then the entire island starts to sink. Once all totems have repel water and lava knowledge, the game ends.
