Memories are found in the Synthesis leagues in Act and map zones.
Each Act or map zone contains one fragmented memory, which Cavas or Zana will open. Entering a memory will spawn you next to one of the Memory Stabiliser. Interacting with a Stabiliser will open the zone and cause the memory to start decaying. Stepping too deep within the decay will forcibly eject you from the memory. It's also possible for the decay to spread into a Stabiliser, preventing the memory from being captured.
The memory can be captured by interacting with all the Memory Stabilisers in it. A memory can have two to four Stabilisers. Afterwards, the memory will be captured and can be used in the Memory Nexus. The captured memory contains paths which determines how it can be connected. Its locations are based on which directions the Stabilisers were.
Once the memory is captured, you can click the button on the bottom right to speed up the decaying process.
Once you exit the memory, any items that dropped inside the memory will be transferred to where you opened the memory.
Fractured items can drop in a memory.
After encountering The Elder for the first time and retrieving Memory Fragment IMemory Fragment I"...A golden machine was found broken in the ruins of Wraeclast.
Believing it to contain some dark infernal secret,
High Templar Venarius asked that I restore it
and weaponize whatever powers it might contain...", the next fragmented memory zone is a special memory which belongs to Cavas. The zone contains waves of synthesized monsters. After completing this memory, Cavas will recover his memories and Zana will take over his role. This also enables bosses to spawn in the Memory Nexus.
|Cavas, Forgotten Spirit: I recognise these men! That's High Templar Venarius with his guards. The other man is Valdo Caeserius. A man of science. They are building something together. Something important.
Cavas: That can't be right. Venarius was - is - a good man. A pious man. He would not lash out like that. No, he must have been provoked.
Cavas: Valdo is shouting at him, you see? Threatening him. The High Templar has no choice!
Cavas: Oh, dear! What just happened? What that... because of me?
Zana, Master Cartographer: Apologies for the intrusion, Exile, but when we found my father's memory fragment, I thought we could explore it with Cavas' help. Now I know what a mistake that would have been. Cavas has altered this memory and he has likely been altering many others.
Cavas: That's ridiculous. I'm innocent. All the memories we've seen clearly prove that.
Zana: Of course they do. You've made sure of that. You're no stranger to rewriting history... High Templar.
Venarius: Was I... Am I...? I am the High Templar... Venarius? It's starting to make sense now. I sought power to wield against evil.
Zana: Stop! Can't you see what you're doing?
Venarius: ...And I found it. Yes, this is a start. This is more than I possibly could have hoped for when I drew the blade and awake -- yes, of course! Now I can protect Wraeclast properly.
Zana: ... protect Wraeclast?
Venarius: What am I, a monster? No, the real monsters surround us.
Zana: And what does that mean?
Venarius: Demons, child. Countless. They watch us from the darkness. They claw at the thin veil that keeps our world separated from theirs. A great tide of evil that wishes only to crash down upon us and sweep our civilisation into oblivion. But I will stand against it.
Zana: Then we are on the same side. The entity that fed on your memories is doing the same thing to my father. Help us stop it!
Venarius: Oh, little one, it is you who will help me... Your memories will show what I need them to show, for the cause. Every thinking man and woman of Wraeclast will come to simply know that they must unite... under me. It is the only way to guarantee a unified defence.
Zana: We won't let you get away!
