In this quest, you must find Zinnervale, which is located just ahead. After talking with Zinnervale, he will explain that he is stuck in the Trial along with you, and then you have to search about Shandi’s Trial. While Exploring, you find a mysterious stone that turns into a portal. Stepping into that portal and talking with Zinnervale concludes this quest.

Shandi’s Trial: Focusing
Advance toward the Illusion Manor created by Shandi to increase Zinnervale’s focus. The first phase of the manor will be operating machines, defeating Focus Destroyer Mini-Boss, and clearing your way to the next stage. The next phase will be finding five real Shandi in many of his illusions; You receive a photo of a real Shandi’s appearance to find them easily. After this task, Shandi will leave behind a Bamboo Twig, and another portal will open up to make your way back to Illusion Bamboo Island. Talk with Zinnervale to conclude this quest.

Shandi’s Trial: Way of Wisdom
The last Shandi’s Trial was for Focusing; this one is made explicitly for Wisdom. Fight through all the Demonic creatures you face as you move across this dungeon. The first phase will be blocking off the holes from where demons are coming out, but blocking them is a bit of an issue as they keep spawning, and you have to pick a giant rock to block that hole. It’s better to defeat all the nearby enemies and cover the holes as soon as possible. The second phase is to lure the self-destructing demons toward the big rock and make your way through to claim the second Bamboo Twig.
- Honor Leapstone (Bound) x15
Use the second Bamboo Twig on the Barrier stone and advance to find the third Mysterious Stone for another portal.
- Silver x32,000
Shandi’s Trial: Way of Courage
This Trial is an Illusion of Temerity boss fight to test your courage. The boss is a bit challenging for under-leveled players as his AoE attacks seriously damage the player. It performs rapid charging attacks, which are hard to dodge. The most straightforward Strategy to beat Temerity is Hit and Run; use your most single-targeted high-damage ability and dash away to a distance.
There is also a second phase of the boss. No matter what you do, he will do a high-damage attack to knock you out, which will trigger a cutscene where Zinnervale gives him a finishing blow. After defeating the boss, the last Bamboo Twig can be obtained, and claiming it finishes the quest.
