We have just come across our first independent area. If you have the Knight in your team, the narrator will usually discuss something related to them, head to the pit with fire shooting out and use his special ability (Triangle/X) to safely drop down the shaft. Now, head left to meet the King for your quest. Head right and approach the gate, which will open, and then climb the rope and ladders to meet the Princess. Now, go back down and head right to progress further into the tunnel.
Climb down the rope and head right up another rope and then all the way up the ladder, ignoring the area to the right as the guard will kill you. You can see the Dragon Gate Key just on the other side of the gate, but you are unable to reach it.
Head up the steps until you spot and elevator and a Lever . Put the Knight on the elevator and switch characters and bring them all the way to the lever. Pull the lever with your ally and stop when the hand gets to II and switch to the Knight to grab a Cave Painting . Now put the Knight back on the elevator and activate his special ability and drop him to floor three. Now that the Knight is distracting that guard by the key, use the ally to head down and get the key. If you do not care to get the trophy/achievement for no deaths, then you do NOT need to go back and move the elevator to get the Knight to safety.
Take the key with your ally and head down the right side of the cavern to find the Dragon Gate and unlock it. Instead of heading inside, drop down the ladder and across the pits of spikes to find another Cave Painting . Now return them to the Dragon Gate and switch to the Knight.
Bring the Knight down the left side of the cavern, following the dragon signs, and enter the left side of the dragon’s den. You need to jump over into the dragon’s area of attack and hit his invincibility to distract him while your ally steals the Dragon Treasure . Now, climb back up the tower and place the treasure into the Coin Machine to receive the princess’s Bloody Amulet and return to the king.
Enter the king’s chamber and grab Excalibur . Unfortunately, the knight is too weak and will need to cheat to get Excalibur. Go back into the tower and find the Crate of Dynamite and grab a stick. Head back down and follow the dragon signs until your see the four skull sign and follow it all the way left for a Cave Painting .
Now, notice the loose rocks above the crypt with Excalibur directly above? Well, you need to light the dynamite and drop it just below to release Excalibur. Now return and pull it from the stone.
