Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

In this Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order guide, we’ll help you through your first big puzzle: the Tomb of Eilram on Zeffo. There’s only one path into the tomb, so we’ll start with your first puzzle.

Optional ball puzzle

Like other puzzles, the first room of this tomb introduces you to the concepts you’ll use throughout the rest of the puzzle. Unlike other tombs, the first puzzle in this tomb is optional. (In fact, it’s much easier to pick up this secret much later in the game with other Force powers.)

  1. Turn off all the air vents in the room. Eventually, the ball will settle down.
  2. Turn on only the center vent so it’s blowing directly toward the socket in the middle of the room.
  3. On the side of the room that the ball ended up on, use one of the vents to blow the ball toward the center vent.
  4. When the ball hits the center vent’s stream, that will blow it into the the socket.

Ride the pendulum

  1. From the first ball puzzle, look for an open passage into an adjoining room. Climb the wall, and head into the tunnel on the left side.
  2. Slice the stone pillars to reach a room with a pendulum. Climb the wall on the right side.
  3. Open the air vent to start the pendulum swinging.
  4. Run along the left side, and jump onto the pendulum when it swings close.
  5. Ride it over to the far side — away from the air vent — and jump off.

Tomb Guardian room puzzle step 1

  1. When you first drop into the room with the Tomb Guardian, head down the ramp, and turn around.
  2. Open the vent briefly to blow the ball into the socket. This will raise a couple platforms on the left side of the room.
  3. Use those platforms to climb up to the second floor of this room.
  4. Climb the wall on the left, and slice through the narrow stone pillars. Slide down the ice on the other side, jump to the rope, and wall run to the left.

Continue through the windy rooms

This path will lead you through several windy rooms, but there’s only one way through.

  1. Try to adjust for the wind blowing you around until you reach a T-intersection on a walkway covered with skungus (those spiky, exploding plant things).
  2. Turn to the left, and use the beam to reach another air vent. Open it to clear the skungus off the platform. Leave the vent open, and turn around.
  3. Head to the other end of the platform, and use the wind to push you into the tunnel there.
  4. Follow the hall and deal with the Tomb Guardian you meet.
  5. Use the updraft to carry you up to the ledge.
  6. Follow the ledge to the right, and open the next air vent you find.
  7. Use that wind to carry you across the room.
  8. Squeeze through the passage there, and follow the next large hallway to the left. There, you’ll pick up your next Force power.

Tomb Guardian room puzzle step 2

  1. After you (re)learn Force push, return to the main room of the tomb — the first non-optional ball puzzle room with the Tomb Guardian.
  2. From the meditation circle, head to the right and into the room with the pendulum.
  3. Force push the pendulum toward the main room. It will crash into a breakable wall and drop the ball held inside.
  4. Push this ball into the socket on the left side of the room near the Tomb Guardian.
  5. Go through the door that opens behind where the Guardian was standing, and turn left.
  6. Climb along the wall to the left. At the other end, you’ll find another ball in a tunnel.
  7. Push the ball through the wall at the end, into the main room.
  8. Push this new ball into the U-shaped chute that runs behind the socket that you just placed the ball in.
  9. The wind will shoot this ball across to the right side of the room.
  10. Near the front of that platform, there’s a wall to climb up. Get up next to the ball, and push it into the socket on the right side.

Tomb Guardian room puzzle step 3

  1. Head back to the very first ball you placed in this room up by the ramp.
  2. Push it down, and into the U-shaped channel, just like you did with the second ball.
  3. It will loop until you disrupt it, so you can ignore it for now.
  4. Climb up the wall on the left side of the room.
  5. Wait for the ball to fly past, and Force push it toward the socket next to you.
  6. Climb up the side of the pillar that rises and return to the elevator.
  7. Force push through the wall to the left of the path.
  8. Force push the ball out of the elevator and down the ramp to head back up top.
