Current Mission - Gain access to the Titan Sanctuary

You will be informed by your new friend Claudia that you need to construct a crystal if you are to gain access to the Sanctuary ahead, fortunately this area is fertile with shards and all you need do is find them.

Shard 1

Run into the screen, hang a left at the top of the stairs and follow this route. You’ll encounter some Lycanthropes here, so deal with them or run past into the next area.

The shard is to the bottom of this area, with the entrance to the left. More Lycanthrope’s spawn here so deal with them before, or after, you grab the shard.

Shard 2

Run forward, and take the route right. Ahead of you is some debris; hook up to the ledge.

$$$item 3575

After collecting the Life Gem, run back to the debris and hang a right. Drop down here for a corpse holding a Scroll; once you have it, walk along the wooden beams and drop down to find the next shard in the top right corner of this area.

Shard 3

Shimmy back over and head back the way you came. After rounding the corner spot the grab ledges and climb up, following the linear route round above the area.

In the next area you have a hard fight against three Great Lycanthrope’s, dodge frequently and try to use area swings to distribute your damage, alongside shadow and light magic to maximize your combat prowess. If you have parry timing down then it will help in this fight, however focusing full attention on one opponent is asking to get damaged from behind.

Head to the top right of the room, hop up and follow the walkway right. Climb up at the end and shimmy left, hoist Gabriel up and run into the camera, shard 3 is on the right.

Shard 4

Simply run forward and into the arena, the shard awaits in the top right corner of the room.

new Item - Dark Crystal

With crystal in hand, don’t use it; inspect the glowing statue to the left. A Troll will handily emerge, fight and tame this troll, break the statue, and strangle it. Jump through the new hole and insert the crystal into the glowing statue. After the door opens, retrieve your crystal and head through.

Puzzle - Light the Way


Objective: Finish the level after absorbing 20 Neutral Elemental Orbs simultaneously.

Encounter with three Greater Lycanthropes, now do battle! But do it well. Use quick pokes and area attacks to build up the meter, and continue to fight well, using regular dodges and trying to concentrate the conflict in one area of the map.

After the fight is up move in amongst all your summoned orbs, cross your fingers, and click a stick. This may take a few attempts…
