LocationCistern Chapel

The Silver Goddess Statue can be found at the Cistern Chapel, to the northeast of Endor, during Chapter 3 of the game. This Item can be sold for such a high value that it will help you a lot in getting the money needed to continue the main story.

Preparations

  • Be around level 7. You can easily reach this level after a short grind outside Endor.
  • Recruit a mercenary. There’s both a soldier and a magician in Endor that you can recruit to accompany you. You can only pick one of them.
  • Gear up. Buy an Iron Apron in Endor, and if you don’t have the Cautery Sword, get an Astraea’s Abacus. Stock up on Medicinal Herbs too.

Finding the Cistern Chapel

After you help the king of Endor, he’ll allow you to start a shop in his city. You’ll have to buy a house for 35.000 gold coins to build a shop there.

You can get that gold by killing monsters and selling their loot (in Ballymoral you can sell armors at double the price), or you can find a Silver Goddess Statue for a collector who lives in the northeastern area of Endor, and he’ll pay you a big amount.

Before exiting Endor, you should hire one of the two mercenaries; Laurel can cast spells and heal you, he’s at the Inn and charges you 600 coins for 4 days; Hardi is outside the church, he’s a soldier and he charges you 400 coins for 5 days.

After you hire one of them, exit Endor and head east. Cross the bridge and walk all the way north, following the coast and then the mountains. Skip the first cave you see and enter the second one, located in a small lake.

Exploring the Cistern Chapel

Walk northeast and get in the raft. Follow the course and you’ll fall down two floors. Go to the shoreline and get down the raft. Pick the chest with a Chimaera Wing on the northern side of this room and get to the next floor on the southeastern corner.

Walk northwest from here until you find a switch. Stand on it and all the water from this floor will fall to the floor below, changing the layout of both rooms.

Now you can explore this entire floor and open all the chests. You’ll find a Holy Lance, gold, an Antidote Herb, Chimaera Wing, a Medicinal Herb and a Holy Lance. After you open all the chests, head to the western side of the room and pick the stairs that go down.

This floor is inundated now, so you can grab a couple of chests that you couldn’t before. There’s an Iron Armor and a Steel Broadsword in the middle of the room. The chests to the right are empty.

The statue is yours! You got everything you could find in this dungeon already, so get out and go back to Endor. 

Selling the Silver Goddess Statue

Go to the collector’s house and talk again to the man on the second floor. He’ll buy you the statue for 25.000 gold coins!

With this amount of gold, and selling the loot you got in the same cave, you should be very close to having the 35.000 coins you need to open your own shop. If you’re not there yet, remember that during Torneko’s chapter you can fight random monsters to get loot that you can sell for a profit.
