How to unlock hidden paths ? <mild spoiler>

#1Sun XiaoPosted 10/16/2013 12:30:37 AM
I thought I did see one topic that mention lightning/thunderstorm will unlock one of them ,but I forgot where is that location ?.

I wonder how many hidden path or secrets do RF4 has now ?. If so, how do I unlock those beside storyline plots of course ?.

I actually just wanna bump this, ive gotten to a few new areas, just started up idra cave in the second arc and i noticed althrough out the map, summer area, fall area, spring area there are places where i cant get to cause its blocked by trees and shrooms and such. Do i just need to progress far enough in the game to get to these areas? Anyone have a list of all the secret areas?

In the spring area is a path blocked by mushrooms... except on the first five days of a month.

I read somewhere that it has to be first five days AND be a storm/typhoon?

Is that right?

No, the mushrooms simply disappear at the beginning of each month. You don't need to let it storm.

Spring has the mushrooms that disappear between 1-5 of evey month, spring also has the daily road that changes every day.

Fall has trees that are broken by lightning. Requires lightning weather, which means lightning storm or typhoon.

That's about it.

thanks guys. gosh there are so many secrets in this game.

another quick one. In delirium lava cavern theres a red pillar, but i cant seem to get to the switch to bring it down. i also passed that part of the story so its optional but i just cant seem to get to the switch. are there environmental/date specific triggers too?

IIRC, you need long range i.e. staff or spear to kill a gate in order to unlock switch.

According to crystalsouls, if you take Kiel with you to Yokmir Forest then he will uncover hidden path near boss's lair. He also said Forte also can uncover that path as well.

I know Yokmir Cave has bunch of secret switch that you need to do back and forth to release pillars.

Yes, this is what I am looking for. Btw, will it unblock for good ?.
