This route has eight main locations, with 27 artifact points total. Start from the teleport waypoint in the center. To unlock it, you'll need to have completed the An Introduction to Indoor Archaeology portion of the Golden Slumber World Quest. These artifact investigation points all have approximately a 24-hour refresh requirement.

For artifact points one and two, enter the large hall in front of you, then use the Four-Leaf Sigils to rise to the balcony on each side quickly. There are three artifact points on the northern balcony and four on the southern balcony.

For point three, go down to the ground floor of the room with balconies and head into the room to the south. There are three artifact points in this room.

Point four is easiest to reach by teleporting back to the center waypoint. Take the door on your right that leads to the north. Fall down the hole in the hallway, then follow the passage to a room with two more artifact points.

Points five and six are east of the waypoint. From the teleport point, turn around and climb two flights of stairs. When you cross the threshold at the top, there will be two passages immediately on your left and right. At the end of each passage are rooms. There are three artifact points in the northern room and four in the southern room.

Points seven and eight require you to have full clearance by completing the Dual Evidence portion of the Old Notes and New Friends World Quest. Once you've finished with points five and six, come back to the room in the center. Continue to the next room east of you. You are able to unlock the doors to your right and left using your clearance. The room in the north has five artifact points, as well as a Primal Construct. The room to the south has three artifact points and another Primal Construct.

This route is a run with nine locations. Start from this teleport point and glide down to the lower portion of Opet Hall to the south. You should have unlocked it via The Secret of Al-Ahmar World Quest in the Golden Slumber questline. These investigation points have a 24-hour refresh requirement.

When you first enter the ruin, ignore the stairs and go to the right. There's an artifact point next to the pot in the corner just in front of you. Then turn back around and go up the stairs.

Once up the stairs, turn to your left. Another artifact point on your left should be in the wooden case shown above. Once you've hit that spot, run up the stairs that lead out of the left side of this room. You'll run up two flights of stairs and turn left instead of running up the third. When you enter this room, there will be another wooden case on the ledge to your left with an artifact spot, as shown below.

Next, run through the center doorway, you can fight the Primal Construct in this room if you want, or you can try to avoid him by running along the edge of the room on your right. In the back right corner of the room are two more artifact points.

Leave this room to your right, there is a side room with two more artifact points. You will have to fight the Primal Construct in here.
