The Crucible

The Crucible will be unlocked for you in the masonry basement after you finish the Servant of God quest. This is a rogue-lite type of dungeon that is arduous to get through but will reward you with plenty of high-level loot.

While you can beat the Echo Knight boss in the Crucible, you’re free to keep replaying it. You just have to spend Fallen Embers to enter the Crucible in the masonry’s basement in Sacrament.

Complete building projects

Speak to Danos in Sacrament to start working on rebuilding Sacrament. It’s in a state of disrepair, and it’s your job to help supply materials to rebuild some shops, as well as shortcuts to farther places in Sacrament.

Since there are nearly a dozen projects to take care of, you have a lot of time on your hands to gather the necessary materials for builds such as Markos’ Alchemy Stand, Filmore’s Smithy, and much more. Completing these will unlock more crafting stations, as well as easier pathways to the Rookery.

Bounties typically ask you to kill a certain amount of one enemy type in a specific area. Challenges will more likely ask you to collect a type of material. Once you complete a Bounty or Challenge you’ll earn yourself some loot and other nice rewards for your efforts.
