Current Mission - Navigate the enchanted forest.

Run forward; drop off this ledge and down to the platform. Drop again and use your hook to let Gabriel rappel down three steps. You should see a hook point to the left, press the hook button again and Gabriel will grab it and wing over. Drop on to this ledge, there is a Brotherhood corpse with a scroll here. Head right, drop a ledge down and then jump to the right ledge, run down here and follow the path.

$$$item 3631

New Item - Light-Magic Medallion

Follow the path forward and you’ll come to a large flight of stairs leading up to some ruins. You’ll get mobbed by some Lycanthropes on the stairs, keep them in front of you and use direct attacks to deal with them, use some light magic attacks if you’re low on health and once they are down head up to the next area.

When you reach the top of the stairs you’ll notice you can go left or right, running right has a scroll but is less beneficial, and harder to navigate, so head right. Follow this path round and you’ll eventually come to a glowing tree.

$$$item 3569

Hit the use button and Gabriel will use his whip to pull the tree into a makeshift bridge, cross this and keep heading forward. You’ll see a smashable window in the distance, run towards this. Use the grapple and pull yourself up to the window; hit the attack button to smash through. Ahead you’ll find a corpse with a scroll that lets Gabriel use the focus ability.

New Item - Focus Scroll

Fight off the Great Warg that appears using the usual method, and then Goblins will attack. Use their bombs as you did on the tree but this time to destroy the door ahead, don’t worry where you grab the bombs as Gabriel is a natural pitcher.

Run through the destroyed door and fight off the lycanthropes, to the right is a brotherhood corpse holding a scroll, but to get up we need to head around to the left.

There is a climb ledge ahead, grab it and hoist yourself up with the hook point and then shimmy to the right. Use the hook again to swing to the ledge, then spin around and use this hook point to swing into the tree trunk.


Objective: Finish the level after killing 30 Goblins with their own grenades.

Play through the level until reaching a door that requires Goblin bombs to destroy. Goblins will spawn infinitely in this area, so whenever one rears its ugly face grab it, hold the control stick in any direction, and land the Circle QTE to light his bomb and kill him with it. Repeat for 30 of the poor little beggars and be done with it.
