How to Ring the Bell in the North Ruins
Follow the quest marker to the quest area south of the Underground Waterway. Head to the location of the Teleport Waypoint, where a door guarded by a Shadowy Husk will automatically open and let you through.
From there, follow the quest marker to the giant ruin and climb up. Once you climb the vines, you’ll find a small hole that you can pass through. Ignore it and go the other way, which will allow you to climb to the top of the ruin.
After defeating the Abyss Mages, recharge the vines with your Lumenstone Adjuvant. You need to have at least 3 charged bars of energy to do this!
Hit the vine to release a small AoE projectile to the purple rocks around the monument to clear the Dark Mud and unlock it. You can also use your Lumenstone Adjuvant!
Your goal is to unlock the mechanisms and remove the purple stones. You can do so by firing a projectile from the plant, targeting both the mechanisms and purple stones. You need to attack the plant facing the direction of the target. The closer you stand, the shorter the reach of the projectile. So for the farther mechanisms and purple stones, stand slightly away from the plant for the projectile to reach.
Successfully firing at any of the mechanisms or purple stones will cause a chain reaction, affecting similar nearby structures. After all of the mechanisms have been unlocked and all purple stones have been removed, the bell at the other side of the clearing will unlock. Attack it to prompt a cutscene to play, completing this part of the quest.
We go to the second bell.
Here you need to make sure that 4 of these lamps burn at the same time. But, to be honest, I can not say whether it is necessary to do this or not. If it works without them, then be sure to write in the comments.
To uncover the western cross, use your Lumenstone Adjuvant to destroy the Dark Mud. Recharge the Lumen monument to permanently light up the southern cross.
Spread out the two Luminous Seelies to place it on the west and east crosses.
Stand on the last remaining cross on the north to complete this first puzzle.
Get the chest to spawn an air current and another Luminous Seelie. Ride the current afterwards.
Stand on the cross opposite of where the Luminous Seelie is to activate the mechanism.
Drop down to see a Ruin Grader sitting on Dark Mud. Dispel the Oozing Concretion first with your Lumenstone Adjuvant, then defeat the enemy!
Ring the bell by hitting it to complete this puzzle!
