    Where to Find the Wishing Well

    You’ll find the wishing well in The Crater region. Before you can access the wishing well, you’ll need to complete the Return of the River favor, which will trigger when you approach the dam in The Jungle. Completing this favor will bring back the water to The Crater region, allowing you to traverse the region by boat.

    Once that’s done, head to The Jungle Mystic Gateway, head east and swing over to the area across. If you haven’t defeated the ogres in the area to the right yet, you’ll need to deal with them first so they stop throwing boulders at you. You can get to them by docking on the northern side of the island they’re on.

    If the ogres have been dealt with, there’s a chain in the previous area you swing to that can be pulled. This opens the door next to it. Do so and enter the door. Navigate through this tunnel and you’ll arrive at the wishing well.
