The two elements work together to increase the impact on land because the surge Water Rise it possible for waves to extend inland. Although elevated, this house in North Carolina could not withstand the 15 ft 4.

Additionally, currents created by tides combine with the waves to severely erode beaches and coastal highways.

The puzzle for the Silver Blade Key is based on the same exact principle, but solving it requires some actions which may not be apparent at first. So, to begin, once you are in this cavern, look for a wall that has all the positions the four statues will need to be in.
