The "Right Way" to Complete The Cynbel Secret Quest

Follow the signs

Look for the large Emerald green crystals in the Cynbel sea palace. When you find them, illuminate them with Ignatious using LT and follow the direction of the arrow to your next crystal. Eventually by following the directions you'll find the treasure, and along the way you'll be rewarded with lots of smaller chests.

Not interested in following the path? Read on.

The Fast Way to Complete the Cynbel's Secret Quest

Just head straight to the final location of Cynbel's Secret

If you've reached the entrance to the Palace of the Sun, fly three chambers back to the right. You'll see a statue of a man, an eel, and two horses. There's an upright pillar in the background on the left, align Aurora with it and fly straight up into the ceiling.

    It's gate of the Sun, not palace. :)

    Just wanted to point out, Aurora's little elemental "firefly" buddy is named Igniculus, not Ignatious. :P Understandable that people would misspell it, though it's in the pause menu on the bottom right. And though it IS a statue, it's best named as a fountain for better reference, since Aurora sees another vision of her father in the basin.

    Wow I just found the chest but what I thought was really cool is that in the background of where the chest is, there is a Fibonacci spiral! Clever placement to put the spiral in a spot that can only be found by exploring

    That's odd - I haven't heard of anyone else unable to open the chest. Did you get the quest beforehand?

    Strange! I'd report that to the Ubi team as a bug then.
