It is time to consult the spirits.

Recover the Spirit Vessel using a Shadow Stone and return the spirit vessel to the Oracle are the second and fifth quests of the second Dark Jonesy punch card in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8.

Before you can try them, you need to know the Spirit vessel locations and know exactly what a Shadow stone is. However, you must first find the scrolls in the IO bases.

Completing these two quests for the first time will reward you with 30,000 XP, which will help you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 8 Battle Pass, and you will receive a small amount of XP with each repetition.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. So what’s new since? Check out the Fortnite Chapter 3 Battle Pass skins, the new Fortnite map and the Victory Umbrella. You can now slide too!

Fortnite Spirit Ships Locations Explained

All you need to do is collect one of the two Spirit Vessel for this quest, and as you can see on the Fortnite map below, they’re located in Weeping Woods and west of Dirty Docks.

Spirit Vessel locations at a glance.

It’s important to remember that in order to unlock this quest, you need to find the scrolls in the IO bases and make sure you use a Shadow Stone before you search for any of the spirit ships.

Without the Shadow Stone, Spirit Ships won’t spawn, so you won’t be able to get them back!

Fortnite Spirit ship location at Dirty Docks

If you want to retrieve the Spirit Ship near Dirty Docks, you need to go to the alien crash site west of this landmark.


Here you will find a number of shadow stones, while the spirit vessel itself is located near the large blue pylon on a small section of stones.


Once you collect the spirit ship, you will be able to complete the next quest – touch a cube – and, after that, destroy the Corruption Cluster and all Corruption Shards.

Fortnite Spirit ship location in Weeping Woods

If you want to retrieve the Spirit Ship at Weeping Woods instead, you need to head to the west side of this landmark where part of the Mothership crashed.


At this location, you can find the Spirit Ship just west of where Grim Fable is, with Shadowstones nearby.


We recommend that you visit this location if you want to complete this quest quickly, as the Shadow Stones are usually located closer to this spirit ship than the one near Dirty Docks.

After completing this quest, you must hit a cube and destroy both a Corruption Cluster and all Corruption Shards.

During the holidays, you can take on new festive challenges, including warming up at the Yule Log in the Cozy Lodge, collecting toy biplanes and finding workshop locations. Elsewhere, Fortnite Chapter 3 has arrived with a new collection of Battle Pass skins! There’s a new map to explore, the Foundation skin, earn Crowns of Victory, a Character Collection to complete, and a new Victory Umbrella to collect. Now you can also drag, browse the web, search for device locations and COG beacon locations, and open safes!

How to recover the spirit ship using a shadow stone in Fortnite explained

Once you have decided which spirit ship you want to collect for this Fortnite challenge, you need to use a Shadow Stone.

Shadow Stones are the little purple cube-like objects that you’ve likely seen in certain areas of the Fortnite map throughout Season 8. Using one of these stones turns you into a purple ghost and you allows you to move much faster than normal.

A shadow stone.

Keep in mind that a Shadow Stone’s effects only last a short time, so try to grab one near the spirit vessel. Fortunately, there are a large number of Shadow Stones on the Fortnite map and they are quite easy to spot.

You can only collect the Spirit Vessel if you are currently in the ghostly form caused by the Shadow Stones, so be sure to pick one up before you go hunting the ship.

How to make Spirit ship to Oracle in Fortnite explained

Once you’ve hit a cube and destroyed both a 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 all you need to do is come back to him in Steamy Stacks and click on his dialogue until the quest is complete.

Talk to Dark Jonesy to complete this questline.

Like all other quests in this row, you will receive 30,000 XP the first time you complete it and a small amount of XP if you repeat it.
