How to complete The Still Water's Flow World Quest?
If you're still on Watatsumi Island, make your way to Sangonomiya Shrine, where you'll find the island's shrine maiden, Tsuyuko. Activate the quest by speaking to her, which she'll task you on finding two Key Sigils found somewhere on the island.
One of the keys is located north on the island near the "Fin" shrine, while the other key is in the "Heart" shrine from the "The Moon-Bathed Deep" World Quest. Head to the "Fin" shrine on the northern side of the island for the first key.
Upon arriving, you will see that three Ruin Sentinels guard the first key. They are hovering at the fish puzzle you will need to defeat. Once defeated, collect the first Key Sigil before moving on to the shrine of the "Heart" for the following key.
To enter the "Heart" shrine, you will need to locate the Seal of the Heart, the entrance to the shrine. Glide downwards from the shrine to find the sealed door beneath the waterfalls.
Once located, enter the shrine of the "Heart" to find more enemies, Hydro Fatui Skirmisher and a Mirror Maiden. Defeat the enemies near the centre puzzle and collect the remaining key before meeting with Tsuyuko topside.
Tsuyuko will instruct you to activate two alters adjacent to the shrine. There won't be any more enemies placed in your way to progress to the alters and use the keys to unlock the gateway.
Speak with Tsuyuko before plunging into the swirling waters below, which will take you to a cavern. Navigate your way out of the cavern to find the Teleport Waypoint marker to complete the quest and unlock Enkanomiya.
