Bastengar’s Underground Heavenly Shrine or Thelos’ Altar is an Atlas Fallen activity you must complete if you are aiming for 100% completion in the region.
Atlas Fallen Bastengar’s Underground Heavenly Shrine will also get you 1400 Essence Dust which can be used for much-needed upgrades because the Wraiths are getting stronger and stronger as you progress through the video game developed by Deck13 Interactive.
Destroying all Heavenly Shrines in Atlas Fallen is a must for all the completionists, especially because doing so will unlock the False God Trophy/Achievement.
However, in the following guide, I will be focusing on Atlas Fallen Bastengar’s Underground Heavenly Shrine, helping you find and destroy it.
Where To Find Bastengar’s Underground Heavenly Shrine in Atlas Fallen
The Heavenly Shrine, which looks like a big golden statue, can be found on the north side of the region.
I’ve marked the exact location on the Atlas Fallen map below; thus, make sure to check it out.
Note that to reach the Shrine, you need to get on the northern side of the broken bridge in the middle of the region.
As such, to get over the big gap, you’ll need to jump and dash three times.
This means you will have to upgrade your Gauntlet to unlock the third air dash by progressing naturally with the story.
When you’re all set, get on to the northern side of the broken bridge and continue forward to the spot pinpointed on the map above.
Then look for a big golden statue with glowing cracks, as shown in the next image.
Be careful because there are a lot of Wraiths in the area that you should defeat first so they don’t annoy you while you try to demolish the Shrine.
Now let us see what precisely you need to do in order to take down Bastengar’s Underground golden statue.
How To Destroy Bastengar’s Underground Heavenly Shrine in Atlas Fallen
Assuming you have cleared the area of Wraiths, go and inspect Bastengar’s Underground Thelos’ Altar to notice it has three areas with gold glowing cracks.
The trick of taking down the statue is simple; all you have to do is hit once each area of cracks.
The lowest cracks can be reached by jumping from the ground at the base of the Altar.
As for the other two, you need to get on the high ground southwest of the Shrine and then jump toward it.
Once you get all the cracks, the statue will collapse, and you complete the activity receiving your Essence Dust.
Nicely done, friend! You have destroyed Atlas Fallen Bastengar’s Underground Heavenly Shrine and didn’t even need a wrecking ball. If you feel like completing other activities in the region, you can tackle Bastengar’s Underground Forgotten Paths.
