Current Mission - Defeat the Third Lord of Shadow - Death

Titan - The Dracolich

Wait for the Dracolich to fly round and start heading towards you. It will fire a burst of green fire, avoid this by rolling to the side of jumping and the camera will pivot to follow the creature. Start hammering the hook trigger and you’ll soon latch on.

Rune 1

Shimmy left and then pull Gabriel up. From here head right jumping between the bones, when you can no longer jump pull up, run right, then drop down, move one more bone right then drop onto the bone and run into the screen, grabbing on to the end of the bone.

You need to jump left to the next few bones, but time these jumps when the bones are close as it’s possible to fall. When the next bone left is brown you should be able to hook to the beast’s underbelly. Do so, shimmy around to the other side and haul up again.

Head left and up until you find the next white outward bone, run into the screen and head right on the bone tips. At the next white bone climb up, run forward, climb up onto the platforms and run right. You’ll soon need to drop to another bone, run into the screen, do a little bone tip jumping right and then hook to the underbelly again.

Shimmy all the way round left then up, along the bones to the left and onto another tip. Hook under, shimmy round right then up, onto the top, right, and then smash rune 1 to pieces.

Rune 2

Run forward and now follow the path left, moving along the obvious white bones, as you have to get this far. You’ll find rune 2 in no time. Once Rune 2 smashes hold the trigger. Thing’s are about to get vertical. Shimmy left and then follow the white bone, it’s obvious, and you’ll find yourself in front of rune 3 fairly shortly. Smash it!

Rune 3

Gabriel will fall; hit the Circle QTE to secure safety and land back on the titan. Shimmy right, then down, around, up, the right and you’ll find rune 4. Destroy it and enjoy Gabriel’s landing.

Rune 4

Now, run immediately forward and use the hook. If you wait you’ll have to avoid a straight fire breath attack. Once in its mouth, run forward and give Rune 4 some good hard smacks to finish the boss off.


Objective: Finish the level and defeat the Dracolich in less than 5 minutes

As with previous titans, you’ll need to use a crystal at the start to weaken his runes and then perform a perfect run with no drops to manage it in time. Good luck.
