We will take you through the quest step by step.

  1. Ensure your friendship level with Ariel is 10 by talking to her regularly and giving gifts.
  2. Ariel will eventually ask you to find a mysterious stone slab she discovered while swimming in the lake.
  3. Take the stone slab from Ariel and proceed to Merlin.
  4. Merlin informs you that the stone slab is a mystical item and needs to be imbued with emotions.
  5. The stone slab has four slots where 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.

  1. Ariel will provide the first emotion, “Joy,” which you can return to her.
  2. This quest resembles a typical fetch quest in RPGs but is shorter and more enjoyable due to the beautiful locations. It involves visiting specific places and talking to certain characters.
  3. To imbue the Stone Slab with the remaining three emotions, talk to these characters:
    • Consult Remy, the animal chef, about “passion,” inspired by Ratatouille.
    • Speak with Moana about “excitement,” reflecting her adventurous spirit.
    • Lastly, converse with Ursula The Sea Witch about “anger.” Despite their conflict, both Ariel and Ursula are integral to this quest.

Enjoy the quest and the connections to these beloved characters!
