You need to do the Richter sidequest in Chapter 4 at the start. It will unlock the Balacruf Mausoleum. At the very top of the temple where the Wind Seal used to be, there is a giant LV 120 Phoenix. Come back at some point to kill it and it will drop the Balacruf Symbol.
Time passes, time crawls Time doesn't move at all.
How do you get back into the Ventus Shrine room? After the door puzzle, the only exit is blocked off by a teleporter (a pink one), and it keeps warping me back to the start of the puzzle. Any idea how to get rid of it?
It's still a million years too early for you to be telling me that I'm wrong! Go back to being a monkey and start over!
