Excavator Vade asks the player to translate an ancient text. Through a series of conversations with other NPCs and a riddle, the player discovers something more.

Stage 1[]

» Speak to Excavator Vade at [1150, 54, -1771]



  • Excavator Vade: Oh, hey kid. Wanna make some money?
  • Excavator Vade: I need you to translate this ancient text.
  • Excavator Vade: Just run it down to the lab assistant, Tesha.
  • Excavator Vade: I'd take it myself, but I'm far too important for grunt work! The lab is up there in the tent, and don't you dare damage the translation!

Stage 2[]

» Bring the Ancient Writing to Tesha in the tents at [1082, 69, -1799]



  • Tesha: Hello, welcome to WynnExcavation Labs!
  • Tesha: Oh Vade sent you?
  • Tesha: Oh yes, the tablet I was waiting for!
  • Tesha: ...
  • Tesha: Oh my! This is quite interesting..
  • Tesha: Here, let me finish this up...
  • Tesha: ..and there you are!
  • Tesha: One tablet complete! Return it to Vade. Oh and don't read it!

Stage 3[]

» Return to Excavator Vade with the translated writing



  • Excavator Vade: Who are you?
  • Excavator Vade: Oh right, you're that kid I sent out!
  • Excavator Vade: Well do you have the translated text or not?
  • Excavator Vade: You do! Brilliant! Let's take a look at that...
  • Excavator Vade: "Throw tribute an item to the wood that stands out, the right angle will open the way"
  • Excavator Vade: I wonder if it is talking about inside the temple... Oh, uh, I forgot you were here. Stay out of this kid, it's grown up business!

Stage 4[]

» Solve this riddle in the tomb: "Throw tribute an item to the wood that stands out, the right angle will open the way"

Spoiler alert: The hidden text contains spoilers relating to solving the riddle.

"the right angle will open the way" - the solution involves one of the corners of the room at [1225, 53, -1765]. "Throw tribute an item to the wood that stands out" - the northeast corner of the room has acacia stairs as opposed to the birch stairs in the other 3 corners. Throw an item into the hopper and the diamond block in the middle of the room will retract. Jump in to go to the next stage.

Stage 5[]

» Search the tombs

Spoiler alert: The hidden text contains spoilers relating to the buttons room.

There are four diary entries around the area, and each one contains a number. The diary entries are:

  • [1256, 19, -1751]: Diary 1 I've been stuck here for 6 days...
  • [1260, 19, -1779]: Diary 2 I dreamt of a 3 headed monster.
  • [1253, 19, -1774]: Diary 3 I miss my 8-year-old son...
  • [1261, 19, -1747]: Diary 4 I mustn't worry ...it will all end with 4.

Together the diary entries reveal the code to be 6384. Enter the code into the buttons on the east wall to progress to the next room.

Once you get past the buttons room, you must cross a parkour with hostile mobs at the bottom of the room.

Stage 6[]

» Return and talk to Excavator Vade



  • Excavator Vade: Hey kid, did you just come from the tomb?
  • Excavator Vade: I knew I shouldn't have been so lazy and got someone else to do the leg work!
  • Excavator Vade: Gosh, I can't tell my boss about this, he'll have my head! Literally! Wynn Excavation is not a group you want to betray, they are more powerful than you will ever know.
