Disney Dreamlight Valley The Circle Of Life is the fourth quest you get from Scar, and you must complete it if you want to be able to destroy the large bones in the Sunlit Plateau area.
However, your Royal Shovel will need another upgrade to get this ability, and gathering the necessary materials can prove difficult if you don’t know how to do it.
So, check the following walkthrough for the Circle Of Life quest, and you’ll have no problems completing it, earning 1280 XP once you’re done.
How To Start Circle Of Life In Disney Dreamlight Valley
Scar’s fourth quest becomes available after completing Breaking Bones, the previous quest in his storyline, covered in this guide.
You also need to reach Friendship Level 7 with the lion villain, which you can easily do by following our Friendship Level Up guide here.
Once you are good to go, open the in-game map to find Scar and start the Circle Of Life friendship quest.
Where To Find The Old Bones
Scar needs your help clearing the big bones scattered through the Sunlit Plateau area, and Mother Gothel can assist you with this task, so you should speak with her.
The main antagonist of the animated film Tangled instructs you to gather some ingredients to make a potion that you need to apply to your Shovel. Here is the list:
- 1 Old Bone
- 10 Purified Night Shards
As Mother Gothel says, you can find the Old Bones in the mines beneath the Sunlit Plateau, so head there.
In case you forgot, the entrance to the mines is on the north side of the Sunlit Plateau area, where the river comes out of the mountain, at the border with the Forgotten Lands.
To find the entrance easier, open the map and look for the river.
Once in the mines, you have to follow the simple instructions that Mother Gothel gave you:
When you walk into the mines, take a left, walk for a bit, take the first right you see, then take another left.Mother Gothel
The instructions are clear, so you should follow them easily to find the Disney Dreamlight Valley Old Bones near a pile of stones.
How To Get Purified Night Shards
Now you need to gather 10 Purified Night Shards, which can be made at a Crafting Station. One Purified Night Shard requires:
- 5 Night Shards
- 1 Dream Shard
Gathering the necessary materials may take a while if you haven’t stocked up in the past.
You can find these Shards by digging in the spots where the ground is glowing, just like in the next image.
It doesn’t matter in which Biome you are; just look for the sparkling ground.
Considering that you need a total of 50 Night Shards and 10 Dream Shards, you’ll need to farm for a while.
The good news is that new spots with glowing ground spawn over time, so don’t worry if you run out of them.
Once you’ve gathered the necessary resources, head to a Crafting Station and make the 10 Purified Night Shards from the Potion & Enchantment tab.
Where To Find The Volcanic Geyser
You should now go to Scar to see what is the next step in the Circle Of Life quest.
It seems that you must make the Old Bones grow into a Flower. But first, you must turn the Bones to Ash, so go inside Scar’s cave in the Sunlit Plateau (the huge mammoth skull in the northeastern corner of the area).
Once in the cave, look for the Volcanic Geyser and put the Old Bones in it. The Geyser is in the back, on the right, as shown in the following screenshot.
Then pick up the Ashes from the ground and plant them anywhere on the Sunlit Plateau.
So, go outside the cave, dig a hole somewhere in the Biome, and plant the Ashes (just like you would with seeds).
How To Make The Even More Miraculous Growth Elixir In Disney Dreamlight Valley
The next part is a little tricky because you have to care for the Flower of Bones, and it can take a while if you don’t know what you are doing.
To make the Flower grow, you must first make an Even More Miraculous Growth Elixir, which requires the following materials:
- 25 Vitalys Crystals
- 25 Rich Soil
- 2500 Dreamlight
The Vitalys Crystals can be mined from the rock deposits with glowing veins that can be found in the mines beneath the Sunlit Plateau; you just went there earlier to get the Old Bones.
To have a chance of increasing the number of Vitalys Crystals you get, don’t forget to hang out with a companion specialized in Mining (preferably the companion highest in level).
To get Rich Soil, you have to harvest vegetables from your crops and lots of them because 1 Rich Soil drops when you harvest around 20 vegetables.
You should check our guide on how to get Rich Soil to have an easier time completing this task.
As for the Dreamlight, you can earn it by completing all sorts of tasks from the Dreamlight tab of the game’s menu.
Upon gathering all the resources, head to a Crafting Station and make the Even More Miraculous Growth Elixir from the Potion & Enchantment tab.
How To Care For The Flower Of Bones In Disney Dreamlight Valley
Next, you have to open your backpack by pressing Y on your Xbox controller and use the Even More Miraculous Growth Elixir to add it to your Watering Can.
Now one sprinkle from your Watering Can will make your crops grow instantly; the sad part is that it lasts for 25 uses only.
However, you only need one use to water the Flower of Bones and make it grow instantly.
Harvest the Flower, then craft the Roaring Shovel Head at any Crafting Station from the Potion & Enchantment tab.
To finally upgrade your Royal Shovel open your inventory and use the Roaring Shovel Head.
How To Remove The Wildebeest Bones Blocking The Wooden Bridge On The Sunlit Plateau
You now have the ability to remove the large bones in the Sunlit Plateau area, and the Circle Of Life quest requires you to clear the bridge in the middle of the Biome.
Check your map to find the bridge; it’s right near Goofy’s Stall.
To remove the huge bones, equip your Shovel (press RT, also on Xbox) and start digging.
Then all that’s left to do is to speak with Scar, completing The Circle Of Life quest in Disney Dreamlight Valley. You can now see how Scar’s storyline in Early Access ends by completing the next quest, The Making Of A Monarch (discussed here).
