Current Mission - Navigate the Labyrinth

Run forward and drop down, go to glowing door and check it, seems you need something more than Goblin bombs for this…

New Enemy - Warthog

Deal enough damage to the Warthog and it will glow white, hook onto the beast and hit the circle QTE to tame it. Use the Warthog to lumber around and mop up the remaining goblins, run the hog into the door twice to break it down.

Strangle the Warthog by pulling both triggers and head through; a brotherhood corpse with a scroll is laying to the right here. Run to the left, you’ll see a ledge so grab this and start climbing up. Up the top run left and use the balance beams to head over the thorns.

$$$item 3571

There is a corpse holding a scroll straight ahead, grab it and jump to the ledge on the left. Continue to shimmy round until you can go no further, drop down and run to the left. Drop onto this ledge, use you hook and lower Gabriel. Use the attack button to kick off the wall, and then jump at the apex of the swing to launch Gabriel to safety.

Head forward and there is a crank mechanism here. Start to use it but stop when you hear the roars, you’ll be onset by Lycanthropes. Deal with them and then use the mechanism for real. In the next area you’ll find a corpse clutching a scroll to your right and a building up ahead, enter here.

$$$item 3632

Run forward, leap the gap, and drop down into the arena here, there are a group of Goblins, one of which has the pole you need to use the crank to open the gate.

Fight off the goblins; the thieving one will do his best to avoid your whip so leave him till you can focus your attention on him. When he’s down grab the pole, but don’t get too comfortable…

New Enemy - Greater Lycanthrope

Beat this new foe, grab the pole and put it in the crank. Use it and, oops; that was unexpected…


Objective: Finish the level after killing at least 5 warthogs.

Easy trial this, in the very first area you jump down to Warthogs will spawn infinitely until you use one to destroy the door ahead. Simply keep killing them outright until the Trial is ticked off. Return with, and use, fairies if you’re finding them difficult foes to tackle
