When you reach the Converted Fringe Tower, you'll notice that the path to the top is blocked by a magical barrier. Passing this barrier requires you to round up a few things.

Your first goal is to find the Academy Glintstone Key that rests behind Glintstone Dragon Smarag [2] in the northeastern portion of the lake. Luckily, you don't have to fight the dragon to pick it up.

Once you've got the Academy Glintstone Key, visit Raya Lucaria Academy and make your way through the straightforward dungeon until you reach a section that requires you to make your way across a bunch of rooftops. Do so until you reach an opening that lets you drop walk into the upper section of the Church of the Cuckoo. You'll find a second Academy Glintstone Key on a chandelier [3] here.

Take the second key to the sorcerer Thops [4] at the Church of Irith and give it to him. In return, he'll bestow upon you the Erudition gesture.

Lastly, you'll have to find any one of the multiple Glintstone crowns that can be found back at Raya Lucaria Academy, so head back there. Likely the simplest to get is the Karolos Glintstone Crown [5]. Start at the Debate Parlor Site of Grace and head north into the courtyard. Look to your left to see a bridge that you can pass under. Here, you'll find a white crab hidden in some bushes, and killing it will net you the crown.

Now that you've collected everything you need, return to the Converted Fringe Tower, equip the Karolos Glintstone Crown (or any other Glintstone crown you happened to find), and then use the Erudition gesture at the sealed door. Doing so removes the magical barrier and grants you the ability to climb the tower. At the top, you'll find Gavel of Haima alongside the ranged sorcery Cannon of Haima.
