Current Mission - Investigate What has the Villagers so Spooked

$$$item 3638

Run in to the village and you’ll see the villagers locking themselves in their houses at the very sight of you, what could have them so spooked? You’ll meet up with Zobek soon who tells you of a secret weapon the Abbot of the nearby cathedral is using to keep himself safe; time to take it from him. Of course it’s not that easy, you’ll find yourself suddenly onset by…

New Enemy - Ghoul

Fight off the initial onslaught of ghouls; you’ve got a big arena so make use of the space. After the fight you’ll be told to plug the hole, so position yourself over the hole and use your hook on the statue, use the button prompt to tell Zobek to help, and yank the statue into the hole.

$$$item 3611

More Ghouls will attack from a second hole, fight them off again and now run back toward the start of the graveyard, you’ll see the statue on the left and you’ll need to use Charge Punches to get it ready to be pulled over in the same fashion as before. Take too long and you’ll have to fight more Ghouls.

The third set of Ghouls will attack from the end of the level, fight them off. Head to the left and you’ll notice the building ahead has a weak wall, Shadow Charge through and you’ll find your plug inside.

Punch the statue in to place, head back out and round and pull it down on the hole. Pulling this statue down has damaged the gate ahead so smash through it. You’ll find a scroll corpse on your right, but simply head forward and you’ll find another one of Gandolfi’s upgrades.

New Item - Stake

Come back down the stairs and use the Stake Crank, because you can, and head through the now open doorway.


Objective: Finish the level without allowing Zobek to kill a single ghoul

This is easily done by shadowing Zobek and stealing all his kills like an annoying thirteen year old on Halo. Use heavy direct attacks and combos and you should easily rob the old codger of chalking up any points on the board.
