CrossCode Wiki

Grand Krys'kajo is a location in CrossWorlds. It is a temple in the middle of Gaia's Garden which is built in and around the giant tree known as Gaia. This is the final of the jungle's three temples, in which the Shock and Wave elements must be used together in order to progress.

The name is also used to refer to the entire group of 3 temples, including the Zir'vitar Temple and the So'najiz Temple.

Grand Krys'kajo

This temple is built right into the name-giving tree at the heart of Gaia's Garden. It can only be accessed by first completing both the Zir'vitar Temple and So'najiz Temple.

A Seeker needs to show that they have mastered both elements acquired in the temples to prove their worthiness. It is said a guardian tests every Seeker personally at the top of the tree.

Layout[ | ]

The temple has six floors, including a sublevel and four upper levels. The path to progress through the temple is as follows:

  • Enter and continue forward to the Main Stream.
  • There are two paths here; follow them in any order. Each will lead you through several puzzle rooms to a balcony in Main Stream. Press both buttons to unlock the puzzle.
  • Complete the Main Stream puzzle to proceed to the next room and fight the mid-boss.
  • Exit onto the main branches of the tree.
  • Go left and right in either order. Each way is a long but linear path in and out of several puzzle rooms to eventually collect a key.
  • With the two keys, you can enter the middle door and complete the final bounce puzzle there to collect the Master Key.
  • Return to the mid-boss room to open the door to the boss room.
  • After the boss, continue up to the 5th floor for the conclusion of the dungeon.

The only connected area is Gaia's Garden, via Entry Test and a teleporter in Seeker's Conclusion.

Role in the Plot[ | ]

In CrossWorlds[ | ]

The Grand Krys'kajo serves as a test of mastery over the elements Shock and Wave. The temple is watched over by a caretaker of the Track, Son of the East. This is the penultimate dungeon of the Track, although several smaller challenges separate it from the final dungeon, Ku'lero Temple. Seekers who prove their mastery here are awarded the Star ShadeStar Shade. For completing the Temple, Seekers are rewarded by Di'aro, who extends their SP bar to 12 SP points. The Trackwalker General gives them an additional reward of two Circuit OverrideCircuit Overrides.

In CrossCode[ | ]

Lea reaches the Grand Krys'kajo together with Emilie, C'tron, Apollo and Joern. After C'tron and Joern decide to log off for the day, the other three players race through the dungeon. Apollo always comes first, and reveals that he has played through CrossWorlds before. Lea can beat Emilie if she takes less than 30 minutes after the dungeon's midpoint. After the players reunite and visit the heritage site, they log off. After logging back in the next day, Lea encounters C'tron as he finishes the dungeon, and the two have a conversation about the stars.

In the A New Home DLC, Lea and C'tron return here to look at the stars again, in the hopes that this will help recover C'tron's memory. The sight causes him to remember something important, after which he quickly flees...
