Current Mission - Infiltrate the Abbey to Obtain the Abbot’s Weapon

Run forward and the poop will hit the fan as soon as you start…

New Enemy - Vampire Warrior

Fight off the Vampire warriors and grab the pole that is lying on the ground. Take it to the device in the center of the room and put it in, turn the crank and ask Zobek to hold it for you.

Run ahead through the door and it will close behind you as Zobek is attacked by another group of vamps, head in to the room and Charge Punch the center statue towards the door and it will crash through. Run back in and help your ally.

Once the fanged freaks are down take the crank out the device and lug it through to the next room, you need to find the two keys to open the next door.

Key 1

Take the pole to the right Crank, use it to open the door and head through. The wall here will try to squish you, argh! You need to keep moving when Zobek holds a slab and then hold a slab so he can move, using button QTEs to hold the slabs up. Survive this trap and you’ll find the key at the end of this corridor, grab it and head back to the main room.

Key 2

Head back to the room with the locked door, remove the crank and take it to the left side of the room, use it in this device to open the door. Take the crank with you this time, as there is another device in this room that requires it.

Put the pole in and use the device, ask Zobek to hold it once you’ve turned it all the way and a platform will start to move across the top of the screen. Hop on and ride it across.

$$$item 3552

There is a broken staircase to the left in the middle of this side, run up it and jump to the key’s platform. Hop back down and return to the locked door, place the keys in and roll up the stairs. There is a corpse clutching a scroll if you head all the way forward, but you want to find yourself in the courtyard.

Puzzle - Abbot Magic

The solution scroll to this puzzle is sitting in the middle of the courtyard (and it’ll cost you the XP you can earn if you want it auto-solved for you).

Head to the right into the covered area, use a Shadow Dash to break the weak wall here and grab the pole from within. Take the pole into the courtyard and place it in the crank. Turning the sun-dial will change the placement of the exit teleport and the entrance teleport can always be found at the South-side of the screen via the right-hand corridor (the one with the fountain behind the gate).

Be warned that plenty of Vampires will come up from all corners of the room if you take too long, so speed is of the essence!

$$$item 3580

Turn the Sun dial 180 degrees and take the teleport to find a scroll, and turn it 270 degrees to set the teleporter at the exit, do this and take the trip. Puzzle solved! Now simply run up the steps and through the door to finish the level!


Objective: Finish the level without allowing Zobek to fall in combat a single time

As long as you don’t dawdle in the second room, or stand around like a lemon in combat, there is absolutely no reason Zobek should come close to falling. If you’re that worried about things, use Holy Water to dispense with the Vamps quickly and easily.
