Mysterious Puzzle Box Grinding

Special Encounter

(doesn't require energy)


  1. change box to tablet form
  2. switch the "small metal plate"
  3. switch to box form
  4. open compartment, put in powder
  5. change to rod form
  6. grind powder
  7. change to box form
  8. open compartment, get upgraded powder

Rinse and repeat steps 4 to 8 for more uses. Except for the rinsing, that would kinda be bad for the powder.

You gain 10 energy of Puzzled Out (or 5, if you have the Secrets of the Cube skill) upon first opening the powder pouring chamber, whether you put anything into it or not.
