Hint: Defeating stone statues:
A bit into the game you will start to encounter stone statues
that come to life and attack. An easy way to defeat them is to
exit combat mode and run close to it. When it starts to attack,
get out of range. It will hit the ground and be on its knees for
a short time. Jump near it and press Y to do a mighty chop
attack. The back of this creature tends to be its weak point.
This will get more difficult depending on how many of them attack
you at once. It seems that the most that will attack at once is
If there are more than one stone statue, try to get all of them
close to each other. Go close to one of them and jump back when
he tries to hit you. If done correctly, one of the other statues
will hit the one that tried to hit you.
Hint: Defeating Elder God:
Whenever a tentacle has little blue dots floating around it, quickly
slash it. Watch the eye occasionally when the blue shield is gone.
Get in quickly and give it a good slash. This is the only way
to damage him. When the eye starts to shoot out different colored
balls, go to the right side of the screen and stand in the depression
in the ground. Run circles in it, and most of the balls will miss
you. Dodge all of the tentacles as they whip around. Use these
tactics and you should survive.
Hint: Defeating Janos Audron:
Like Turel, he is invulnerable except for certain moments. Dodge
him when he dive bombs you, then get in close and slash at him.
You can also attack him after he has shot the orange tornado at
you. Attack whenever he is down on his knees.
Build up your Reaver spell and be ready to cast a spell (Spirit
Reaver recommended). Do not use the spell immediately. Instead,
wait until he attacks with something like the orange tornado and
you are somewhat close to him. When he does the attack, immediately
cast the Reaver spell. As he goes to his knees he should take
some damage from the spell. you Also attack him at this point
as much as possible to inflict more damage. It is recommended
that you attack him until just before he starts taking no damage
from your attack again. Then, repeat the process. This takes time,
but helps to conserve some health and inflict quite a bit of damage
at the same time.
Hint: Defeating Kain:
Use the basically strategy when defeating Raziel as Kain.
Hint: Defeating Raziel:
As Kain, use your combos and especially Kinetic Shackles. Pull
or throw Raziel around and keep slashing. Raziel is quick; keep
moving and use all your skills.
Hint: Defeating Turel:
You will take your vengeance upon his monstrous form. He is almost
invulnerable unless you do the following. When the glowing yellow
bands surround you, find the gong that is emanating them. You
have to hit it either with your Reaver or with a Tk bolt. This
will stun him. Get to him and hack at him as fast as possible.
Repeat this as needed. Watch out for his other attacks. Near the
end, all four gongs will start to emanate. The two end ones should
be hit, killing him and giving you stronger telekinesis.
Hint: Finding the Earth Relic:
When Kain is looking for the Earth Relic, hunt in whichever forge
he is in. When you find a hallway filled with black Spectres (with
purple eyes) run along it until you see a fence. Run in a half
circle on the left side of the hallway. Jump over and down to
Hint: Spirit Forge Puzzle:
When you get to the Spirit Forge and the Elder God is closing
it of with his tentacles, do the following. First, jump down and
slash where the four connect. Next, climb out and use your Dark
and Light Reavers in the holes on the ground (beneath the glowing
runes). He will shout and drag the front deeper. Go down and slash.
Use Earth Reaver to help get back up to the top. Do the same thing
for Water and Fire. He will retreat deeper. Slash him again. Use
Earth to sink and slash, Water to freeze the waterfall, and Earth
to create to rock bridges. Climb to the top and stick the Air
and Earth Reavers in to ignite the Forge. Then, just float down
and get it.
Hint: Respawning Blood/Soul Basins:
When playing as either Kain or Raziel, you will sometimes find
Blood or Soul Basins which will recharge your health when you
consume the contents. These respawn somewhere between two and
five minutes apart from when you used them. This is very useful
if you are locked in a room with multiple enemies, such as statues,
which do not give either blood or souls upon their death.
Hint: Use Reaver charge repeatedly:
Enable the "Unlimited Reaver charge" code.
Then quickly rotate the Left analog-stick and press the
X the entire time.
Hint: Traitorous enemies:
If you get in a fight with multiple enemies, a strike that is
meant for you may hit one of your opponents. Sometimes two enemies
will flat out attack each other and forget you. This is very helpful
when you are fight multiple stone statues.
