We will take you through the quest step by step. First and foremost, go find Ariel and talk to her if your friendship level is 10. Friendship levels in the game can be increased in various different ways. The most effective method is to talk to them regularly and shower the characters with gifts.

Moreover, getting the quest and even unlocking Ariel does take a lot of time. Once, you have finally reached the required level Ariel will ask you to inquire about a stone. She finds this mysterious slab while swimming around the lake. Take it from her, and then make your way toward Merlin

Merlin then explains to the player that the Stone Slab they are holding is a mystical item. He then informs the player that they need to imbue the slab with emotions. As you can see in the screenshot that we have provided above the Stone Slab has four slots. It is in these four slots that the emotions will be imbued. 

Permeating The Stone Slab With Emotions 

Lucky for you, the first emotion it needs is Joy, which can be filled out by Ariel herself when you return to her. Fans of Disney films know about the emotions of each of these characters and how they add to their character and personality. 

The quest basically works like a fetch quest in regular RPGs. Don’t worry it is much shorter and going through these beautiful areas makes the time go by quickly. Most of it revolves around going to a certain location and talking to a certain character. 

Furthermore, it is a very well thought-out quest as all the emotions that you will be filling are from characters who you yourself know to possess them. Speaking of these characters to permeate the Stone Slab with the three remaining emotions, you will need to talk to these characters below. 

  • First, go and talk to everybody’s favorite animal chef, Remy, about passions. Ratatouille is a film many adore, and it is a film that shows the passion of chefs through Remy. The little guy loves cooking and never gives up on his passion, no matter the circumstances. 
  • Secondly, talk to Moana about excitement. Fans of her film know that she is a passionate and daring adventurer who loves the excitement that comes from dangerous endeavors. 
  • Lastly, talk to Ursula The Sea Witch about anger. She is pissed at Ariel and her beauty and she tries her absolute best to ruin her life throughout the film. It is ironic how both of them have to play a part here for the Stone Slab to work. The game also has a fun Ursula quest that the players can partake in.

We are almost done with the quest. Now we are reaching the final part. This one is very simple and just requires knowledge of the layout of the cave. It is also the part where many non-gamers and newcomers get confused

In addition, the last step of the quest asks the player to figure out where the Stone Slab goes in the cave. Naturally, start by making your way to Dazzle beach and entering the Mystical Cave. Here simply make your way down the stairs, and soon you will reach an area where the slot for the Stone Slab is. 

Take a look at the screenshot we have provided above to get an idea of what to look for. It is literally located directly to the right of the bottom of the staircase. It is very hard to miss when you know exactly where it is.

Once you have located it, go ahead and interact with it. Here it will ask you to insert an item, where you will naturally place the Stone Slab. Doing so will make the wall disappear instantly, revealing a glowing crystal that is lying on the ground directly in front of the player. 

This right here is the Mystical Crystal. Pick it up and then go to Ariel. Talk to her and do as she asks. It will complete the quest and will reward the player with Ariel’s Seafoom Suits Ariel’s Seafoom Gown. It is an excellent reward that gives fans of The Little Mermaid something to dress up in.
