Starfield: Temple Eta [Location & Puzzles]

Learn about the popular Temple Eta in Starfield, where you can uncover the mysteries to solve it and attain some unique rewards.

As someone who has spent hours in Starfield, I have to admit that you may find yourself scratching your head as you try to find and conquer the Temple Eta Starfield dungeon in the ‘Into the Unknown’ mission. Starfield has its fair share of puzzles, and “Into the Unknown” is full of them. Nonetheless, it is worth the trouble, granted the spectacular loot waiting for you at the end.

Key Takeaways
  • The Temple Eta is the leading destination of the second part of the Into the Unknown Mission in Starfield.
  • It is on the planet Procyon III, which is in the Procyon A system.
  • Players will have to navigate distortions towards the Starfield Temple Eta location map marker.
  • Then, they have to complete the puzzle by going through clusters of light in the main room.
  • The final cluster will open a portal that will give players your first power in Starfield, the Anti-Gravity, which will allow them to create a localized low-gravity field.

How To Find Temple Eta In Starfield

Temple Eta is a large monument situated on Procyon III in the Procyon A System in Starfield. I recommend exploring it as part of the Into The Unknown mission to uncover its secrets.

After completing the first part of the Into the Unknown mission by collecting the required artifacts, you’ll be prompted by Matteo and Vladimir to travel to Porycon III and investigate an anomaly. That mission objective eventually leads you to the Temple Eta location.

Procyon III is a planetary body in the Procyon A system. The coordinates are marked if you have the mission active, but navigating the planet can be very confusing even then. Additionally, a known bug in Starfield’s Into the Unknown may have removed the Procyon III map marker. I suggest fixing it using the following method:

  1. The first thing you have to do to find the Temple is look for distortions on your scanner(LB or F).
  2. When scanning, you’ll see more potent distortions in a specific direction.
  3. Follow the direction of the strong anomalies until you come across a large structure, the Temple Eta.
  4. There are many enemies scattered along the path, mostly Shieldshells, so be prepared to fight when following the anomalies.
  5. Additionally, there are many points of interest on the planet on your path that you should avoid at the moment and explore later.

Into The Unknown Bug Mission Prerequisites

There is a chance that most of the events may not be triggering for you when following the steps listed above. To avoid that, make sure that you have started the Into the Unknown mission and completed the first part of that mission. It simply includes collecting two artifacts from Nesoi in the Olympus System and Niira in the Narion system. After you add these artifacts to your collection at the lodge, the second part of the mission triggers.

You should now see the Starfield Temple Eta location map bookmark. Once inside the Temple Eta, navigating it can be challenging because the dungeon is a rather vague puzzle. As you enter, you will start to float because of the lack of gravity there. When the rings have started spinning, and you’re thinking that this Temple is just an empty ruin, is when the puzzle begins. 

In my experience, the listed below method has proven to be the most effective in tackling this particular challenge:

  1. Navigate to the room in the Temple.
  2. You should see a couple of clusters made of sparks scattered here and there.
  3. They will continuously disappear and reappear at random spots across the room.
  4. You must go between these clusters before they disappear swiftly and carefully (you may have to use your boost pack in Starfield).
  5. Missing these rings will reset the progress you have made so far.
  6. A good indicator of progression is the speed of the spinning rings in the room will increase, and the music will grow more intense with each successful encounter.
  7. After the final cluster, the metal rings will stop moving and open up a gate in the form of a shiny portal.
  8. Walk through the gate, and you will be rewarded for finishing the Temple Eta dungeon.

Based on my experience, considering the quizzical and vague nature of the puzzle at the Starfield Temple Eta Location, I suggest embracing the challenge, as it is only fair that the reward must be just as grand. Thankfully, Starfield does not disappoint there and awards you with your first power

You will be given the Anti-Gravity Field power once you walk through the gate. The Anti-Gravity Field power helps you create a localized field of low gravity, which is quite reminiscent of the Temple itself. It is the main reason behind completing the “Into the Unknown” missions.

That concludes my guide on how to find Temple Eta and solve the puzzle within. Of course, if you’re not careful, you might find yourself stuck in Temple Eta when solving the door, so it’s best to follow the procedure as accurately as possible to avoid any mishappenings.
