  • The route to the top moth will have rocks in the way of the crystals, as well as the moth being trapped in a rock with light being emitted from the cracks.
  • The route to the left has mushroom bridges that are activated by dropping a light blossom on them and are broken apart onto islands by chasms.
  • Throughout the map, there are stones with strange runes on them that can be illuminated with light blossoms. When lit, they display messages to the player.
  • Once all the moths have been guided to the central crystals, Cosmo and Graham will engage in conversation.

  • This Adventure is the 18th one to be released.
  • This Adventure introduced a new variant of seeds, Light Blossoms, that are found by Cosmo in the beginning.
  • Before it was updated, the player had to do a lot more in the ancient city. At the end of the first light puzzle, the player would need to grab the Boomseeds that appear and break some boulders to get to the next part. In the next section, the player would have to press 3 buttons like the ones in The Trials of Zios in 60 seconds. In the first button room there were flame cracks similar to the ones in The Trials of Zios, but with a blue flame. The room after that had about 5 phantom spouts, and the last room had multiple phantom watchers. Pressing one of the buttons initiated the 60 seconds. After that, the player had to find one of the light sources and solve another light puzzle. After walking around solving it, the player would come across a glow moth. The player would have to instantly follow it, because it would lead to the hidden passageway with the key to unlock the door nearby. After finding the key and solving the 2nd light puzzle, the player would need to unlock the blue crystal door. Once inside, the player would need to solve a 3rd light puzzle. When done, the light beam would have lead to the obelisk at the end.
    • This was brought back as the Hard Mode for the adventure.
  • The messages from the former residents of the ancient city were originally in the form of paper scrolls, but these were replaced with glowing stone tablets when the adventure was updated.
  • There were many mirror glitches when the adventure was first released, but these were later fixed when the adventure was updated and made shorter.
  • Like most new adventures, this was initially only accessible via the Parties List.
  • The completed map of the glow moth cave is shaped like a moth.
