Name Image Notes
Seal of Time Enchanted Regular Book.gif Marks the user's current location and begins a countdown of 7.5 seconds when right-clicked. At the end of the countdown, the user teleports to the marked location with the same health, hunger, and saturation that they had upon starting the countdown. Breaks after use.

Text Walkthrough

Entrance (Difficulty: 1/10)

  • When a player approaches Water Spire with Pluvia's Seal, they will receive a message in chat to signal that the dungeon can be accessed. A column of water particles will appear in the center of the spire's bottom floor.
  • In order to enter the dungeon, all players must stand close to the particles and the player carrying Pluvia's Seal must hold it in their hand slot. This will teleport all nearby players back in time.

Ground Floor (Difficulty: 2/10)

  • Once you have arrived in the past, head into the center of the Spire and stand on the elevator platform. Wait for the mages inside to place five smooth stone slabs on the elevator platform.
  • The elevator will eventually begin to rise up to the top floor of the Spire. You will need to jump to a ladder from the platform before it lowers back to the ground floor.

Top Floor (Difficulty: 1/10)

  • When your whole group has reached the top floor, head east and walk up the wooden stairs to meet with the Fire Sage Ambersol. Listen to his dialogue.
  • When the purple particles appear on his desk, throw Agni's Seal into the particles and Ambersol will continue his dialogue.
  • Right click with an empty hand to pick up Pluvia's Seal and the Seal of Time when she lays them on the table.
  • Once you have picked up both and ? finishes his dialogue, you will be teleported back to the present day.
  • Congratulationsǃ

Travel Advisory/Warnings

  • Despite the fact that there is water surrounding the island, there are barrier blocks preventing you from getting a water refill here. Make sure to fill your water up before entering the dungeon.
  • Waiting for the elevator to stop moving when it reaches the top will maximise your chances of a successful jump to the ladder.
  • Do not worry about falling if you fail the ladder jump as you cannot take fall damage within the dungeon instance.
  • Do not spam right click when attempting to pick up the Seal of Entropy as you may use it by accident.
  • When you pick up Agni's Seal the bottom line of its lore will have changed from "It radiates a strong elemental aura..." to "It seems to have expended some of its power...", indicating that you cannot use the same Agni's Seal to enter Fire Spire Past again.

Trivia

  • Past Fire Spire, like the name suggests, takes place in the past before the zombie plague started and when the humans were still constructing the Spires to seal away the gods.
  • This dungeon was initially teased in the forum post "MineZ Origins - Weekly Update #2" posted by halowars91 all the way back in 2017, before the Fire Spire rebuild was conceived.
  • The music played when you travel back in time is a note block cover of the Song of Time from the game Legends of Zeldaː Ocarina of Time.
    • A distorted version of this song playn you return to the present after completing the dungeon.
  • The "cold, ominous presence" referenced as you return to the present day is most likely Dentril, the MineZ god of darkness.

???ː If my calculations are correct,we're well ahead of schedele.

???ː I can only hope the others are as fortunate...
???ː Ah,uho might you be?
???ː I wasn't expecting visitors,unless...
???ː Are you the seal Bearer?
???ː If I'd known I was in the presence of the Seal Bearer, things may have been a little different.
???ː Please excuse my impatience, I am a little stretched thin right now.
???ː I am Umbra Ambersol, I maintain the progress of the Fire Seal.
Ambersolː That is, I did until our supplies started to dwindle in recent weeks...
Ambersolː There's word of a recent drought in the north that may be the cause of it.
Ambersolː It's not unusual that the plains go through tougher weather conditions, but this incident sounds like a show of power by the gods themselves.
Ambersolː It only strengthens our need for the completion of the Seals.
Ambersolː I can share with you some of the knowledge we've collected on Agni, and what their powers hold.
Ambersolː Agni's power overlaps with probability and fate.
Ambersolː Their duality is a reflection of the control they hold over order and discord...
Ambersolː ...existing in a state where both sides can exist as equals.
Ambersolː In this tome you will find it possible to connect into this power.
Ambersolː You can access a superstate where you simultaneously exist and do not.
Ambersolː It's entirely possible to come into contact with places that blend into our world.
Ambersolː Realities that reflect the one we know, mirroring our own.
Ambersolː Now, you should be aware that this state has had some...
Ambersolː ...undesirable outcomes.
Ambersolː Tampering with existence as if it were your plaything has proved to be... fatal.
Ambersolː Now, please excuse me, I really must go back to planning...
Ambersolː Sealing a god away is a bit of a difficult task.


  • The following is broadcast in local chat as you return to the present.
The images of the past begin to collapse around you, as time and space fall together once again.
