GreedFall comes with a handful of puzzles during certain main and side quests. One of the missions you come across in the game is “Face to Face With The Demon.” The players go deep into a swamp to try and find a demon they saw in a vision.
Head to the swamp and walk toward a hermit who is going to tell you about some people who tried to investigate the area. The problem with this GreedFall quest starts when you have to hit three drums and then use a potion. You must hit the drums in the right order and in this guide, we will discuss the right order to hit the drums to solve the puzzle, and everything about the potion.
How to Solve GreedFall Drum Puzzle
Follow the mission marker and explore each highlighted area. Make sure you explore the entire area properly. You will find a chest with two items inside. There are a note and a demonic potion, both needed to complete this quest.
Begin by finding the drums in the quest area. There will be three drums: one on the right, one on the left, and one in the middle. These drums represent different symbols: firefly, frog, and snake. The correct order to hit the drums is right, left, and then middle. This corresponds to the firefly, frog, and snake symbols respectively. Interact with the drums in this order to proceed.
After hitting the drums, turn around 180 degrees to face the opposite direction. Proceed to the left of the drum area. You will come across a big log that needs to be jumped over. Jump over it and another log will appear. Cross that log as well.
As you continue forward, you will reach an area with a firefly on the wall. Look around, and you will spot a dead body lying on the ground with a key. If you have level 2 lockpicking you don’t need the key.
Use the key to unlock the chest near a tent in the woods. Inside the chest, you will find a potion vial.
Now that you have the potion in your inventory, make your way back to the plant altar near the drums. Interact with the plant altar to use the potion. As you use the potion on the plant, a monster will appear. You must defeat this monster to continue with the GreedFall quest. The monster should not be too difficult to defeat, but having poison resistance can be helpful if you encounter any issues.
Once this part is done you will be able to progress to the next part of the quest. This marks the end of our GreedFall “Face to Face With The Demon” Drums puzzle guide. If you need more help with the game check out character romance, how to craft, and memory crystal guide.
