The Secret of the Spring Walkthrough explains that the red star can be used to locate an Altar of Lilith, which is an excellent addition to the path. Engage in Conversation with the Note That Was Cast Aside (Step 1)You will find a note that has been crumpled up and laying on the ground nearby. You can read by using the device in various ways. You are going to get the following message, which is intentionally very cryptic:Beacon of warmth in the embrace of winter, patience rewarded by grace bestowed by nature itself. Beacon of warmth in the embrace of winter. Figure out how the puzzle with the notes can be solved. The note itself does not give you a lot of information to go on, so you will need to rely on other sources.

Once you have arrived at your destination, you will proceed through the area known as the Trough of Orobas, where you will see a small pool carved into the rock.

This is yet another Action Wheel or Emote quest, and while it is comparable to the Traveler's Prayer and Raising Spirits quests, there is a significant difference between the three of them. After you had finished those two quests, the required emote would automatically appear on one of the game's default wheels. When you play Secret of the Spring, you will not receive the Wait emote, which is required for the portion of the puzzle that recognizes and rewards players for their ability to exercise patience. Simply press the E button to bring up either your Action Wheel or your Emotes. You can personalize the wheel by clicking the button that is located directly below it. Have a look at the tab that's labeled 'Emotes'. Wait will give the impression of having the status "Not Assigned" as the default setting. Choose Wait, and then click and drag the circle down until it fits into one of the open spots on your wheel (you can select a different wheel by using the scroll button on your mouse). Once it is properly positioned, release the mouse button. It's as easy as clicking on the empty space to give it the assignment.
You can also replace it by dragging it over an emote that you aren't currently using and dropping it there. This is another option. You can exit the Customize interface by selecting it, making changes, and then selecting the Save Changes button. To unlock the wheel, repeatedly press the E button. While you are still standing next to the spring, you will need to click the Wait button that has been presented to you. This video will guide you through the steps involved in using the Action Wheel in its entirety, including the following:
Step 3: Open the Chest That Was BuriedAfter you have demonstrated the required level of patience and completed the portion of the quest that requires it, a Buried Chest will materialize nearby for you to open. In order to complete the quest and receive your rewards, you are going to need to crack open the chest.
