How To Find The Third Moon Seal (Hiram Church Mystery) – In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, a balance must be established between the turn-based XCOM-style combat and wandering The Abbey’s grounds. The tale battles must be won to advance the plot, but so too do the exploration of the area and the discovery of fresh mysteries. But you quickly come to the realisation that traversing the entire property won’t be simple.
You’ll need the third Moon Seal to get around some of the vegetation that is blocking the map. In order to earn Power Word Purify, you must first finish the Hiram Church Mystery and then successfully complete the third seal challenge. We’ll describe where to look for the third Moon Seal in this section.
Starting The Hiram Church Mystery – How To Find The Third Moon Seal (Hiram Church Mystery)
The Hiram Church Mystery can be started rather early in the game, but you won’t be able to finish it until close to Day 20. This is due to the fact that you must win a specific plot battle (The Bell Tolls) before moving on to the conclusion.
Once you have Power Word Reveal, the quest starts when you go to Everflowing Glade for the first time during the day. Turn east and descend the steep staircase that leads to the Elder Hyppus Shrine from the Old Salem Cemetery.
Agatha can be found near the bottom of the stairs. If you speak with her, she will advise you to learn more about Hiram Shaw. Read the Caretaker’s notes on Hiram Shaw in her open book on the table when you return to the library. The Third Moon Seal was taken by Hiram, but no one knows where it is now.
Hiram Shaw’s Church – How To Find The Third Moon Seal (Hiram Church Mystery)
From the Valley of the Winds fast travel point, proceed north along the road to Hiram Shaw’s Church. Then, turn right at the fork. Although you can get there before now, the location won’t be indicated on the map and Agatha won’t be present if you haven’t begun discussing the third Moon Seal with her.
The word of power “Open” will let you enter the church through both doors and exit through the back courtyard.
In addition to the many treasures inside and outside the church, you also need to inspect the red and pink hex that is blocking your exit from the back. When you do, Agatha will advise you to talk see Doctor Strange that evening about it. After speaking with him in the evening, a cutscene will show you travelling to the church with him. However, he has no quick fix, so you let him handle it.
Completing The Bell Tolls – How To Get The Third Moon Seal (Hiram Church Mystery) In Marvel’s Midnight Suns
Study the alien sample at the Hellfire Forge in The Abbey once you have finished the main quest The Bell Tolls (about 20 days in, if you complete most plot objectives as soon as you can). Once you’re finished, Doctor Strange will give you a vial of symbiote as a means of piercing the barrier. Use it on the hex there at the church.
You can now explore the tunnel that is located behind the church, which will bring you back to the study area inside the building. Use Power Word Reveal while facing the desk in front of the back door once inside. The three drawings on the desk can now be examined. The sketches will vanish if you leave, but fear not—they will reappear in the Abbey library, on the desk on your right as you enter.
The drawings are the key because each one depicts a site where a witch had her warren and includes a symbol. You’ll see a symbol painted outside each site, in the top right corner of each drawing. To further the quest, though, you must get some rest because there won’t be anything else you can do until the next day.
Completing The Mystery – How To Get The Third Moon Seal (Hiram Church Mystery) In Marvel’s Midnight Suns
Speak with Agatha in the library in the morning. You’ll need to win another battle before moving on because she’ll tell you to speak to her again that evening. She will ask you to gather soil samples from each of the three witch warren locations and bring them back to her the following night if you return to see her in the library. As follows:
- West of the Abbey, take the stream’s northwest branch to its terminus.
- Fast travel to the Valley of the Winds, then turn south from Stone Terrace. To get to the cave, take the second path on the right.
- Dreamers Descent: From the location you fast-travel into, proceed east along the path. Choose the dead-end path on the right that leads to a small cave.
When you have all the samples, Agatha will automatically transport you to the Elemental Altar to watch a cutscene. She will admit that the Salem Hanging Tree is where the Moon Seal is stashed away, but she is unsure of the tree’s precise location.
Near the Salem Cemetery stands the tree. Take the first left path up the hill towards the cemetery after crossing the lengthy bridge to the east from Shaw’s Church. To reach the tree, take the first dead-end path on the left. Implement Word of Power: The Moon Seal will materialise at the hanging tree and put an end to the Hiram Church Mystery.
If you are not at this point in the quest, it won’t show up.
You can now return to the Elder Hyppus Shrine at Everflowing Glade, which is close to the Reflecting Pool, to take on the following challenge.
