What is the Password for the Caer Bocram Vault?
There’s a mystery afoot in Caer Bocram. No, we’re not talking about the how all the buildings were perplexingly destroyed. We are, of course, talking about the passcode for that basement vault! The password requires you to find three clues that are hidden throughout the ruined town of Caer Bocram, and in this Tales of Vesperia guide, we’ll show you how to find all three clues, figure out the password for the vault and progress through the level!
The First Clue
As you enter Caer Bocram from the valley north of Capua Torrim on the continent of Tolbyccia, the first thing you’ll come across (after your brief but the hostile conversation with Nan from the Hunting Blades) is a warp blastia. However, you need to find the activation switch before you can use it.
To find the switch, go left through the archway and past the waterfall. Here, you will come across a door in the ground. Open it and go into the underground room where you will find the activation switch. The switch will need Aer, but shooting it a few times with the Sorcerer’s Ring you found from the Shakos Ruins will do the trick.
Return to the warp blastia and shoot it with your ring again to fill the core with Aer. The blastia is now functional. Before using it, however, go inside the building on the far right of the blastia, which was previously inaccessible. In here, tucked away neatly in a book cabinet, lies the first password clue for the Caer Bocram vault: Light. Simple enough, right?
The Second Clue
Now return to the warp blastia. You can use it to warp in three directions: forward, to the left, and to the right. You need to warp forward. Now, go to the building on the left with a lamp post near the entrance, and go inside.
You will see two staircases, one leading up, and one going below. Right now, we’re interested in going above, since the staircase going downstairs leads to the vault where we will later input the vault password.
Once on the upper floor, proceed to the door on the right, which will take you to a balcony outside where a second warp blastia is located.
Activate this with the Sorcerer’s Ring, and use this to travel to the left. After that, travel all the way to the far-right end of the space, where you will see another building. Go in, and go downstairs. Here, in a cabinet similar to the first one, you will find your second password clue: Sky. You are now another step closer to figuring out this Tales of Vesperia password and getting through the Caer Bocram vault!
The Third Clue
Come out of the building, and go back near the spot where the second warp blastia landed you. To the left will be an event that introduces you to the Fatal Strike mechanic, but for now, we must continue our hunt for the password!
From where you’re standing, you should see a building with a third warp blastia on the roof. Go inside the building, and use the ladder on the left to get to the roof. Activate it by shooting it with your ring, and then warp forward.
Proceed into the building on the left, and go to the upper floor. Here, in the cabinet to the right, lies your third password clue: Sphere. Now, you’re all set!
The Caer Bocram Vault Password
With this, you’ve collected all three clues: Light, Sky and Sphere. So, what is the password for the all-mighty Caer Bocram vault? Why, it’s Sun, of course! And now, it is time to get that vault door open!
To enter the password, return to the building where you came across the second warp blastia, and instead of going up, take the stairs that lead down, and make your way to the bottom of the elaborate and overly-long spiral staircase. Interact with the machine on the left, and it should eventually prompt you for the password.
Simply enter your painstakingly-obtained password, sun, and the vault will swing open!
And just like that, you’ve conquered the mystery of the Caer Bocram vault. Next up is a boss battle with the Dreaded Giant, but that is a guide for another day!
