How To Unlock Mother Gothel

Mother Gothel performs dark magic to keep her daughter in the magic tower, which has resulted in absolute chaos throughout the village. You need to follow the steps given below to unlock Mother Gothel.

The Curse

The first step in the game involves activating “The Curse.” After this, you will look for Merlin in the Valley, and once you find him, you will speak to him regarding the situation in Glade of Trust. 

Entering Tree House

A cutscene will play after this, and you will enter the tree house located in the dark woods. You will find Mother Gothel here, so speak to her and follow her to the Pillar of Trust before you are directed back to Merlin. Here, you will ask Merlin about the ways to stop this black magic.

Seeking Ursula’s Help

You will need someone who knows the black magic; this is not Merlin’s specialty. He will suggest you ask Sea Witch Ursula for help. The next step is to look for Ursula. You may find her swimming in the Ocean of Dazzle Beach. 

If you do not find her in the Ocean of Dazzle beach, you will have to look around to find her. The appropriate step is to look for her in all the ponds of water located around the peaceful Meadow. 

Retrieving Orb Of Trust

Ursula will direct you to bring another NPC along to channel her magic in the player protagonist. This will allow them to eventually move into a void known as here and there to retrieve the Orb of Trust.

Remember that you will need this item to unlock Mother Gothel in the game. Ursula will help you rescue the villagers from the magic, and you have to give up something crucial for her spell to work. 

Reaching Orb Of Trust

You may find the new dimension a bit disoriented after entering, but you can keep following a visible glow that the Orb is causing at a distance. If you carefully follow this visible glow, you will be able to reach the Orb of Trust.

Unlocking Mother Gothel

After you successfully pick the Orb, the protagonist will be transported to the Pillar of Trust located within the Glade. Finally, “The Curse” will be completed, and Mother Gothel will be unlocked. The final step is to head to her home and have a concluding conversation. 

How To Enter The Glade Of Trust
