The sea lances where danger and opportunity meet are dotted with vortexes and hidden currents that can speed your Waverider up. When the challenge progresses to a specific checkpoint, a giant vortex may appear.

A great number of Xiao lanterns are floating atop the glimmering waves, and special Luxurious Coins will be present within a few of these Xiao lanterns. When the challenge progress reaches a certain checkpoint, fireworks will go up in the surrounding sea region. Follow their colors and choose the correct Xiao Lantern to solve lantern riddles.

When fireworks go up in the surrounding sea regions, follow their colors and shapes to choose the correct Xiao Lantern and obtain Challenge Coins. If you do not choose correctly, your Waverider will be destroyed, so keep your eyes peeled for the correct solutions to the lantern riddles.

Mystical Elevation
