While there are many enchanting characters in Disney Dreamlight Valley, Belle is a notable villager for her intelligence and kindness towards others. Her curiosity knows no bounds, and she’s the best mystery solver in the valley. When you team up, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish together.
Uncovering the secrets of the village is one of the most intriguing aspects of the game, as well as bonding with new characters to forge friendships. These friendships result in great rewards and more development throughout the game. When you reach level ten, you’re rewarded with an engaging quest and a unique new item.
How To Unlock The Chronicles Of The Ancients Friendship Quest
Before you can begin Belle’s final friendship quest, you’ll need to have completed all prior friendship quests with Belle. You’ll also need to have met the following requirements:
- Reach Level Ten Friendship with Belle.
- Unlock the Fairy Godmother.
- Unlock Ariel.
- Unlock the Frosted Heights.
- Unlock the Glade of Trust.
- Unlock the Forgotten Lands.
Once you’ve met these conditions, speak with Belle. She’s found an interesting passage in her Journal, but she needs you to read it. Head to Beast’s Castle and interact with Belle’s Journal on her desk.
The Journal contains an entry from the Ruler’s Diary, which mentions something called The Chronicles of the Ancients. It’s hidden on an island far from Dreamlight Valley. Thankfully, you know just the mermaid who can help locate this item.
How To Reach The Glowing Chest
Talk to Ariel about the entry, then use the Raft on Dazzle Beach to reach the island you found Ariel on. You’ll need to head to your right to find the chest trapped behind the rocks.
Return to Belle to let her know what you found. While she’s sure the two of you could free the chest, she wants to get Beast to help out. You’ll need to bring him some materials in case he needs tools.
There’s an optional objective to change into three Rustic clothing items for this adventure.
Bring the Beast four Ropes and two Iron Ingots to secure his help. He’ll agree, and you’ll all head back to the island. Once you’re there, speak to Beast and he’ll free the chest from the rocks.
When the Chest is free, take the scroll and get a closer look. You’ll find four symbols on it.
How To Unlock The Glowing Chest
Each symbol will be used to unlock the chest, and there are four scattered around the valley. You’ll need to find them all before you can claim what is inside.
It’s easier to see the symbols at night when they glow.
Symbol Location One
The first symbol can be found on Ariel’s island. It’s on the rocks near the chest you found.
Symbol Location Two
The second symbol is in the Frosted Heights, all the way in the back towards the waterfall.
Symbol Location Three
The third symbol can be found near the watery ruins in the Glade of Trust.
Symbol Location Four
The fourth symbol is found at the back of the Forgotten Lands, by the Ruins.
Once you’ve taken a picture of each symbol, return to Beast’s Castle. Open the chest, collect the Chronicles of the Ancients, and show it to Belle.
The Chronicles of the Ancients is broken, so you’ll need to ask the Fairy Godmother for help.
How To Repair The Chronicles Of The Ancients
Find the Fairy Godmother and show her the Chronicles of the Ancients. She’ll be able to repair it, but you’ll need to gather more materials for her. To fix it, you’ll need:
Bring the materials to the Fairy Godmother once you’ve gathered them together, and make sure that the Chronicles of the Ancients is also in your inventory. The Fairy Godmother works some magic and repairs the device, so you can now return to Belle.
Find Belle and show her the repaired device. She’s excited to have it but wants to share it with everyone. To do so, Belle wants to put the Chronicles of the Ancients near the Dreamlight Valley Library so everyone can access it.
Head out to Merlin’s House and open the furniture menu. Place the Chronicles of the Ancients near his home, close to the stacks of books, for the placement to register properly. Once you’ve done that, return to Belle.
As an Honorary Librarian, Belle is thrilled to have the Chronicles of the Ancients established in the valley. As a thank you, you’ll earn a couple thousand points of friendship with Belle.
Additionally, you’ll receive two gifts: the Royal Gold Ballroom Suit and the Royal Gold Ball Gown, which resemble Belle’s iconic ensemble from Beauty and the Beast. These unique outfits are only available by completing this quest.
