Key points of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy - The Western Ghats - Hoysala Tokens
1 – Ruins with the tokens map and the Queen's Ruby
This page contains the locations of Hoysala's Tokens, one of the optional tasks during your stay in Western Ghats, a section in
Uncharted: Lost Legacy. The Tokens are optional - acquiring eleven tokens and delivering them to the stone map will yield a worthwhile artefact known as the Queen's Ruby, which will prove to be useful when locating treasure in further parts of the game. Stone Map
In essence, the tokens can be acquired from the beginning of the fourth chapter, but you may begin by investigating the ruins in which they will be used. The ruins in questions are marked with
blue 1 on our map, and can be found in the north-eastern part of the map. Moreover, you can see them on the screenshot above (there are a number of monkeys on your right - you can use the opportunity and photograph them).
Enter the ruins and investigate a large stone map with eleven figurines shown on the screenshot above. Take a look at the mechanism at the bottom of the map - you will learn that you need to deliver eleven tokens of Hoysala. Their approximate locations will be marked on your map - you can also look for green marks on our map.
Now, you can follow the list or approach the tokens as you see fit. The locations of the tokens are also marked by interacting with small shrines found next to each token, but a single visit to the stone map will render the shrines unnecessary. Make sure to gather all eleven tokens, as the reward (Queen's Ruby) will be very useful in the further parts of the game.
Token 1 can be found in the southern part of the map, not far from your starting location. Make your way to the area slightly east from the token's icon on your map - you will encounter a shrine and a location where you can begin a short climb to reach a protruding wooden beam (shown on the screenshot above). Climb to the beam and swing through three different hooks using your rope (you'll skip a supply chest - a different secret that is found on one of the ledges).
Approach the damaged wall and use a grenade or a grenade launcher to topple it. If you are without any explosives, make your way back to the aforementioned chest and open it to find additional grenades.
Enter the small cave - the token is on the table overlooking the second exit.
Token 2/11 is hidden below a large reservoir found in the south-western corner of the map. Begin by looking for a shrine which neighbors a large sculpture of a elephant (shown on the screenshot above). Search the basin for an area where Chloe can dive and make your way through the underwater tunnel.
Tunnel leads to a small cave - search the area to find the token which is located in a dark recess shown on the screenshot above.
Token 3/11 is located in the south-western part of the map, in an area occupied by enemy forces. You can take care of the mercenaries in any way - eliminate them in direct combat or take care of them by stealth, utilizing takedowns or a silenced pistol.
Once you've cleared the area, search for a weakened wall next to a shrine. Destroy the wall by utilizing grenades, grenade launcher, or a RPG found next to one of the defeated mercenaries.
Token 4/11 is hidden in the extensive ruins neighboring the tower that serves as a vantage point for the whole Western Ghats. You need to approach the mechanism shown on the screenshot above which can be found on the roof of one of the large buildings (a shrine is found nearby)
Use your grappling hook to get from the building to building
The mechanism initiates a time-attack challenge. Your task is to make your way to pressure-sensitive plates found next to small fountains using nearby trees that will allow you to swing and access further buildings without having to climb them from the ground level. Use them as often as you can - in case of a bad landing, continue the race by climbing the given building from the ground level.
If you've managed to activate all the plates in the allotted time, return to the starting location and touch the final mechanism to be rewarded with a token which can be picked up from the podium. If you've failed, return to the mechanism and start again.
The token is hidden in the ruins located in the north-western part of the map (near Shiva's fortress). The ruins in question in shown on the screenshot above - make an approach from the left side of the waterfall and use the ledges to climb inside the ruins.
You'll encounter a quite complicated riddle that involves attaching three interactive elements from the left side of the screen (1,2, and 3 on our screenshot) to the central part of the mechanism. Here is the complete walkthrough:
1) Rotate the outermost ring in order to attach object
3 (interactive elements are rotated using Triangle).
2) Rotate the outermost rings counter clockwise and press Triangle again to place the object at slot
3) Rotate the outermost and medium rings to pick-up object
2 and connect it to medium ring.
4) Move the outermost ring to slot
4 and connect it to the large object.
5) Rotate the outermost ring backwards and place the now attached large object to slot
6) Rotate the outermost and medium ring in order to send the medium object to slot
7) Rotate the outermost ring to face slot
3 and connect the large object again.
8) Rotate the outermost ring back and send the large object to slot
9) Rotate all three rings to connect the inner (the smallest) ring with the object from slot
10) Rotate the outermost ring to face slot
4 and connect the large object once again.
11) Rotate the outermost ring counter clockwise and send the attached large object to slot
12) Rotate the outermost and medium ring in order to connect the object from slot
5 to the medium ring.
13) Finally, rotate the outermost ring to slot
3 and connect the large object again.
Completing all steps will enable you to mix the three elements with the rings. Match the rings to create an image of a horse (the completed puzzle is shown on the screenshot above) and proceed to an unlocked stash to pick up the token.
The token is in a guarded ruins in the northern part of the map. Watch out for the sniper and other mercenaries and make use of the vegetation to avoid being detected.
Once you've managed to defeat all of the opponents, approach the truck and pick the lock from the chest to find the token and unlock an additional secret.
Token 7/11 is located in the ruin containing the stony map described in the first paragraph. Take a look at the large map, as using it unlocks a side room containing a token.
The token is found in a small site located in the central part of the map. Start by climbing a building with a large jib. Make your way to the end of the beam and attach your grappling hook to the well.
Now jump from the roof!
You cannot raise the slab on your own, but fortunately you can jump from the beam and use your hero as a counterweight. The stone will be raised unlocking the access to the room below containing a new token.
Note - The ruins are visited by a group of mercenaries once you've entered the secret room. You can engage in a firefight or simply escape from the area.
Token 9/11 is found in the eastern part of the map. Your destination are the ruins shown on the screenshot above. If you've made it, search for an interactive ledge that will allow you to access the interior.
Use a firearm to strike the first bell and the ones found outside of the building
Investigate the large bell found next to the locked gate and fire at it with a weapon to make it ring. Continue by leaving the interior and fire at the bells spread across the courtyard. If you've activated all of the bells, the gate will unlock leaving you with a new token.
Token 10/11 is hidden in the eastern part of the map. Climb the stones to reach a shrine and continue your climb by turning right and climbing the ledges.
Climb to the tower on your left - there is a interactive branch that will allow you to swing to a small pillar found on the slope - make sure to aim your jump, as otherwise you'll slide down and will have to repeat the whole action again. If you've made the jump, continue following the pillars and skip the final one in favor of reaching the cave shown on the screenshot above.
The final token is located in the southern part of the map, not far from Ganesha's fortress. You need to continue down the river or use the bridge found next to central vantage point. Your goal is to access the ruins shown on the screenshot above which is also guarded by a strong enemy presence. Stay undetected, as there is a mounted heavy machine gun which can be manned by one of the opponents. Moreover, the group on site can call for additional support (which can be dealt with by utilizing the heavy machine gun).
If you've managed to clear the area, search for a weakened wall that neighbors one of the shrines and topple it using grenades (there is a supply chest nearby) and pick-up the token.
Stone Map and the Queen's Ruby
If you've managed to pick-up all of the tokens, return to the stone map and interact with the podium - the tokens will be transferred to the stone map, unlocking the cage with the Queen's Ruby (screenshot above - the action is rewarded with a new trophy -
Yas Queen). You will also receive access to an courtyard/sanctuary inhabited by monkeys - be sure to explore it, as the area contains three separate treasures.
Queen Ruby allows you to detect valuables by emitting a sound each time you are nearby a treasure. If for some reason you want to proceed without this feature, you can deactivate the artifact from the pause menu.
