Enhancements are handy little trinkets you can find lying across the game world. There are 12 of these bad boys each have their own unique bonuses. Once acquired, you can assign one enhancement to each weapon you own, allowing you a total of three enhancements at any one time (two at the end of the game as the Armageddon Sword cannot be enhanced).

Before making your way across to the other side, jump to the first Shadowflight geyser and use it to lift you up, but instead of moving forwards, hold back on the controls to pilot War to a secret area above the tunnel you were just in for a chest containing the Enhancement.

Fury’s Embrace

  • Every attack generates wrath on contact with enemies
  • Increases Wrath Power damage
  • Reveals all world maps and items

As you enter this room, look up and to the left to see a portal symbol on a balcony above. Use the floor symbol to create a bridge, cross this but turn to activate the portal pad as you cross.

Activate the symbol on the ground when you reach the other side and return back across the bridge the way you came, drop down the shaft in the previous hallway and enter the second activated portal. Use the orange symbol on the floor to cruise across to the other side of the room and open the chest here for the Legendary Enchantment.

Upon entering, turn around and you will see a second Voidwalker pad on the back of the gate. Shoot a second portal here. Open the gate again using the nearby switch and return to the chronosphere room. This time, open the gate, hit the chronosphere and run through the portal to find the chest containing the Enhancement.

Continue on until you find the room with 7 or so Demonic Plants hanging from the roof. On the far right of the room from the entry way you will find this in a chest. You will have to grapple using the Abyssal Chain to reach it.
