Ori and The Blind Forest Walkthrough

Restoring the Elements (Water): The Heart of The Ginso Tree

Hello guys, welcome to part 8 of the Geek Game Guides Ori and The Blind Forest Walkthrough.  In this part of the walkthrough we are now inside the Ginso Tree.  Inside the Ginso tree we obtain the skill Bash, collect some Spirit Light pickups and also an Energy Cell.  We then make it to the heart of the Ginso Tree and begin solving some of its last remaining puzzles.

Note: You can find all parts of this Walkthrough (including a video walkthrough), on the Geek Game Guides Ori and The Blind Forest Walkthrough main page. (click here)

Obtaining Bash

In order to get the Bash skill you must first kill the borrowing plant creature (mini “boss”), this will unlock the doors in the room.

Bash Skill - Ori and The Blind Forest Walkthrough

Tip: Make use of the Charge Flame skill so that you can easily target the plant creature with AOE while also massive damage.

After killing it make your way further up the Ginso Tree collecting ALL the Spirit Gate Keystones one your way (In the video below you can see I actually forgot one and had to turn back lol). When you reach the Spirit Gate open it and on the next side you will find the Ancestral Tree Reem, absorb his power to obtain the skill Bash.

Spirit Light Pick Ups

First Spirit Light Pick Up

First Spirit Light Pick upThe first Spirit Light pick up can be found right near the Ancestral Tree Reem over to the north west corner. Make use of your newly acquired Bash Skill to get it.

Second Spirit Light Pick Up

From your current location make your way further up the Ginso Tree. Make use of Bash to propel you up by redirecting the fireballs shot at you by the plants. Eventually you will reach an area with a piece of broken log (unstable ground) with the Spirit Light pickup beneath it. Use Bash to redirect one of the fireballs the plants are shooting at the log to break through it and collect the Spirit Light beneath it.

Third Spirit Light Pick Up

Now after collecting the second Spirit Light pickup head further north were you will find another broken log (unstable ground) that you can use Bash to redirect one of the fireballs at. However, this time its a little bit more tricky. You will first have to redirect one of the fireballs through one of the hollow teleportation logs, jump to the other side (north east) and then redirect it again at the broken log. There are two pieces of broken logs at this location, one that you will have to break to get to the Spirit Light pickup and the other that you will to have to break to continue up the Ginso Tree (break both with the fireballs you redirected through the hollow teleportation logs).

Energy Cell Pick Up

Energy CellNow that you have gotten the third Spirit Light pickup its time to collect the Energy Cell. Continue further north until you reach the spitting plants. Make use of the projectiles they spit at you to propel Ori further north. When you reach the location of the second spitting plant stand a bit to the west of its location so that it will spit projectiles at you. Redirect the projectiles it spits at you towards the broken log (unstable ground) in the western corner to brake it. Now that its broken, jump down to access the location that was previously blocked off by the log. Head west through the hollow teleportation log which will teleport Ori to the location on the eastern side of your screen, this is where you can collect the Energy Cell.

To The Heart of The Ginso Tree

ori-walkthrough-ginso-tree-heartNow that you have gotten all the pickups in this part of the walkthrough its time to head towards the Heart of the Ginso Tree. Head back up to the location with the spitting plants and continue further north with the aid of the lanterns and using Bash. Make sure and collect all the Spirit Gate Keystones on your way up so that you will be able to open the Spirit Gate at the top. Beyond the Spirit Gate you will have to fight an elemental “mini boss” in order to continue further north to the Ginso Tree’s heart.

Tip: To kill the boss quickly and easily Wall Jump onto the wall to the west of the elemental. From there every time it shoots a fireball at you redirect it with bash, rinse and repeat until it is dead. Also upon killing the elemental both of the doors in the room will open. The door over to the east has a Spirit Well behind it, so if you need to heal up and save after the battle with the elemental you can do so there.

Once dead the wood above the elemental will shatter due to the explosion from its death, a lantern will be revealed behind it. You can use this lantern to propel Ori up and right to the heart of the Ginso Tree. There Sein will explain how you should go about cleansing the thorns from around the Heart of the Ginso Tree to restore it.
