Recovering the Spirit Vessel using a Shadow Stone and returning the Spirit Vessel to the Oracle are the second and fifth quests on Dark Jonesy’s second punch card in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8.
Before you can attempt them, you must know the locations of the Spirit Vessels and know exactly what a Shadow Stone is. However, you must first find the scrolls in the IO bases.
Completing both missions for the first time will reward you with 30,000 XP, helping you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 8 Battle Pass, and you’ll receive a small amount of XP each time you repeat them.
Please note that this particular challenge can no longer be completed. What’s new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection, and Eren Jaeger skin. It’s a good idea to know how to get XP quickly in Fortnite.

Spirit Vessel locations in Fortnite explained
You only need to recover one of the two Spirit Vessel for this mission and, as you can see on the Fortnite map below, they are located in Weeping Woods and west of Dirty Docks.
Spirit Vessel locations at a glance.
It is important to remember that to unlock this quest, you must find the scrolls in the IO Bases and make sure to use a Shadow Stone before searching for any of the Spiritual Vessels.
Without the Shadow Stone, the Spiritual Vessels will not appear, so you will not be able to recover them!
Fortnite Spirit Ship Location in Dirty Docks
If you want to pick up the Spirit Vessel near Dirty Docks, you need to head to the alien crash site located west of this waypoint.
Here you will find several shadow stones, while the spirit vessel itself is located near the large blue pylon in a small section of stones.
Once you have recovered the Spirit Vessel, you will be able to complete the next quest (touch a cube), and after that, destroy the corruption cluster and all the corruption fragments.
Fortnite Spirit Vessel Location in Weeping Woods
If you instead want to recover the Spirit Vessel in Weeping Woods, you need to head to the western side of this landmark where a part of the mothership crashed.
In this location, you can find the Spirit Vessel just west of where Grim Fable is, with some Shadow Stones nearby.
We recommend visiting this location if you want to complete this quest quickly, because the Shadow Stones are usually found closer to this spiritual vessel than the one near Dirty Docks.
After completing this quest, you must tap a cube and destroy both a Corruption Cluster and all Corruption Fragments.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 is here!

There’s also a new Victory Umbrella! In the meantime, learn what the best weapons are, the current boosts, how to get XP quickly, how to use the best PC builds, and earn a crown of victory.
How to recover the Spirit Vessel using a Shadow Stone in Fortnite explained
Once you’ve decided which Spirit Vessel you want to recover for this Fortnite challenge, you need to use a Shadow Stone.
Shadow Stones are small, purple, cube-shaped objects that you’ve probably seen in certain areas of the Fortnite map throughout Season 8. Using one of these stones transforms you into a purple ghost and allows you to move much faster than normal.
A shadow stone.
Remember: the effects of a Shadow Stone only last a short period of time, so try to grab one near the Spiritual Vessel. Fortunately, there are a large number of Shadow Stones on the Fortnite map and they are quite easy to spot.
You can only recover the Spirit Vessel if you are currently in the ghostly form caused by the Shadow Stones, so be sure to pick one up before going to find a vessel.
Now You See Me, Now You Do not.
Explanation of how to return the spiritual vessel to the Oracle in Fortnite
Once you’ve touched a cube and destroyed both the corruption cluster and its shards, it’s time to return the spirit vessel to the Oracle.
The Oracle is, of course, Dark Jonesy, and to complete this quest you simply need to return to him at Steamy Stacks and click on his dialogue until you complete the quest.
Talk to Dark Jonesy to complete this quest line.
Like all other quests in this line, you will receive 30,000 XP the first time you complete it and a small amount of XP if you repeat it.
