If you want to unlock the true ending for Valkyrie Elysium, you'll need to find every Verdant Blossom hidden throughout the game. Verdant Blossoms are similar in appearance to Hollow Blossoms, but unlike Hollow Blossoms, Verdant Blossom messages remain unreadable until they've all been collected. Here's where you can find each of the nine blossoms.
Where to find Verdant Blossoms in Valkyrie Elysium
The first blossoms appear in chapter three, you can locate them on the map by searching for tiny green dots. Because Verdant Blossoms are an important element of the gameplay, the very first one is pretty easy to find. Simply go to the middle of the bridge by the first save point in chapter three. Picking up this blossom will trigger a cutscene.
Once you're about halfway through chapter three, kill all of the enemies around the temple before running up the stairs and entering a room on the second level that is accessed by walking over wooden planks. This room contains another blossom.
After you reach the second save point, turn right and go down the stairs to find a Verdant Blossom on the balcony over the water. The second blossom for this chapter is a little trickier to spot because it only shows up on the map once the player is on the same floor level as the blossom. Look around the castle at the end of the chapter to find it. To enter the room with the Verdant Blossom, navigate the blocked entrance by using the stairs.
The rest of the game only offers one blossom per chapter. The one for chapter five can be found at the end of the chapter once you've beaten the boss and recruited Kristoffer.
Once you've done this, go to the end of the map and then turn left. This will push you into a small side area with a path on the left and right. For the blossom, take the right path and let Kristoffer get rid of the dark barrier. The Verdant Blossom is located behind the barrier.
The chapter six Verdant Blossom is located inside the First Belltower, which is locked. Across from the tower is a broken bridge, leap over the bridge and defeat the enemies on the other side. Once they're dead, look in the upper right corner for an outcropping that contains a treasure chest. The chest holds the key to the bell tower.
Once you enter the tower, head down the stairs. You will find the Verdant Blossom in the room at the bottom of the stairs.
When you enter the castle, you'll know you're on the right path for the Verdant Blossom. You'll be able to see the Verdant Blossom icon on the castle map. Like the blossom in chapter four, you'll need to go up and down stairs to get around the blocked door to reach the blossom.
For this level, enter the blocked room from the floor above and jump down into the room. There will be a switch on the side of the wall. This will cause the gate to open, and you will be able to collect the Verdant Blossom.
This is one of the tougher blossoms to obtain because you'll need to solve a puzzle to reach it. As it stands, the only thing that separates you from the blossom is a body of water that will poison you if you touch it. Carefully move along the water's edge, and you will find a series of crystals that lead across the lake. Use the crystals to get to and from collecting the Verdant Blossom.
You will only be able to collect this blossom if you have already acquired all of the other blossoms. The chapter nine map is pretty linear, making finding the blossom nice and easy. Simply look inside a small alcove and collect your treasure.
