    1.1- For those new to the LoK series
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    This game is fourth in a series called 'Legacy of Kain'.  Thus, there is 
    a lot that you missed out on if you haven't played any of them.  This 
    section spoils a lot of the story in the original Blood Omen but does 
    not go into either of the Soul Reaver games.  I suggest you go pick up, 
    Blood Omen 1, Soul Reaver, and Soul Reaver 2 because they are all very 
    good games and you will get much more of the history of this game if you 
    do.  This section will not explain anything that isn't referenced in 
    Blood Omen 2 or in this FAQ by myself.
    
    NOSGOTH
    The land where all of the LoK games take place; there is not mention of 
    anything beyond Nosgoth so we can assume it is a wasteland of little 
    interest uninhabited by life.
    
    KAIN
    The main character in the series, although you only play as him in Blood 
    Omen 1 and 2.  He was originally a human nobleman but was slain as part 
    of a plot.  In death, the Necromancer (Mortanius) offers Kain revenge... 
    for a price.  Kain accepts and is transformed into a vampire as a 
    result.
    
    MORTANIUS
    Only appears in Blood Omen 1.  He represented one of the nine Pillars of 
    Nosgoth and took part in a plot to corrupt the pillars and gain control 
    of Nosgoth.
    
    PILLARS OF NOSGOTH
    These pillars represent the condition of Nosgoth; if they decay, so does 
    Nosgoth.  Each pillar is represented by a person; if the person becomes 
    corrupted, so does the pillar.  Kain's duty in Blood Omen 1 was to 
    restore balance to all of the pillars by killing each of it's 
    representatives, afterwards he was promised a "cure" to his vampirism.
    
    VORADOR
    An old vampire that is somewhat the rival of Kain.  He took part in the 
    corruption of the Pillars of Nosgoth by murdering the Sarafan priests.  
    He was caught and decapitated by the Sarafan in a public display but 
    somehow was revived like Kain to appear in Blood Omen 2.
    
    SARAFAN
    An ancient order of humans vowed to destroy all vampires in a sort of 
    holy war.
    
    SARAFAN LORD
    A mysterious leader of the Sarafan that somehow killed Kain and now 
    rules all of Meridian with an iron fist.
    
    MOEBIUS
    Also known as the Time Streamer; he also represented one of the nine 
    Pillars of Nosgoth and has the ability to travel through time.  He is 
    only referenced to as a giant statue in Blood Omen 2.
    
    JANOS
    The oldest vampire in history.  He was slain by the Sarafan when they 
    broke into his keep and ripped his still beating, black heart from his 
    chest.
    
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    1.2- Enemies
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    THUG
    Found throughout Meridian and the canyons, they are the easiest of 
    enemies and are equipped with clubs.  They are easy when alone but 
    rather annoying in groups.
    
    THIEF
    Also found throughout Meridian, these girls carry short daggers as well 
    as crossbows.  If you are far away they will use these crossbows to 
    launch fire arrows at you, best thing to do is jump or dodge them and 
    then get close enough so they put it away.  These characters also run 
    away if they are 1 hit away from dying, which is fun to watch.
    
    GUARD
    These guards walk the streets of Meridian carrying swords and a slightly 
    better combat AI.  Although not usually in groups of more than 2, be 
    careful if one sounds a nearby alarm and they start flooding out.
    
    GLYPH GUARD
    The more advanced version of the regular guard, these are almost 
    impossible to stealth kill because their armor alerts them to your 
    presence immediately.  Easily identified by their yellow highlights on 
    their armor and they carry the same weapons as normal guards.
    
    HOLY GUARD 
    These appear only in Chapter 4 and are charmed by Marcus to delay your 
    advance through the chapter.  They carry strange bludgeon weapons that 
    are not to my liking, so I stick with the sword.
    
    GLYPH CAPTAIN 
    These are exactly like Glyph Guards except they are stronger and have a 
    huge axe you can pry from their dead hands.  
    
    GLYPH KNIGHT
    Easily identified for their size and red cape, these act the same as 
    Glyph Captains but carry a sword instead of the signature axe of the 
    Glyph Captains.  These also have glyph magic that makes it impossible 
    for you to stealth kill them. 
    
    INDUSTRIAL GUARD 
    Only appear in Chapter 6 and act as thugs except they fight better and 
    carry swords instead of clubs.
    
    DEMON SPIDER
    These rather large spiders are the easier of the two demons you 
    encounter.  They are too small, however, to be thrown, not like it 
    matters.  They also don't have any yellow aura or red aura (unblockable) 
    attacks.
    
    LESSER DEMON
    I hate these guys with a passion.  These demons hover and have such a 
    devastating unblockable move because there is little to no warning when 
    they are about to do it.  If you run into one best idea is to use 
    fury/berserk/immolate if you can.
    
    PRISON GUARDIAN
    These only appear in Chapter 8 and although they look exactly like the 
    Grim Reaper they are pansies.  You cannot take their giant scythes and 
    after you hit them once they tend to go into an "invisible" mode where 
    you can only see their eyes and, of course, the red targeting circle, 
    which defeats the purpose of it I suppose.
    
    PRISON WRATH 
    These also only appear in Chapter 8 and are floating skeletons that 
    don't do much besides slow you down.  They also don't have any yellow 
    aura or red aura attacks so are good to charge up your rage bar for 
    later.
    
    HYLDEN
    These are the clothed version of this enigmatic race and pose little 
    threat as they are one of the few enemies this late in the game that do 
    not have a red aura (unblockable) attack.  Thus, I find it easy and 
    advantageous to block until your bar is filled and then kill them and 
    use immolate on a tougher monster.
    
    HYLDEN WARRIOR
    These unclothed versions might be the deadliest enemies in the game 
    although their AI is not that great until they are about to die.  They 
    have 2 yellow aura attacks and 2 versions of their red aura 
    (unblockable) attack.  One version is slightly faster than the other so 
    it is very hard to develop a pattern and timing to dodge.
    
    HYLDEN PET
    These cannot be killed by Kain, except in one special circumstance later 
    in the game.  Even immolate does not work on them so best idea is to run 
    very fast and very far... or close a door on their faces.
    
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    1.3- Boss strategies
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    These are put here for easier reference because, for some, the bosses 
    are the only help they need in the game.
    
    FAUSTUS
    Simply block until your rage bar is full and then use your Fury attack 
    on him.  When you see him jump back with a red aura around him quickly 
    dodge to the right or left by pressing right/left and jump in combat 
    stance.  You can not block any red aura attacks, however he also has a 
    yellow aura attack that you can block but it will push you back.  It 
    might take a few tries to get his pattern down but if you keep using 
    Fury when your bar is full you won't have much trouble.  After 3 times 
    he'll run away to another room.  Follow him and here you'll have to use 
    your Mist ability.  Faustus will jump on top of 
    boilers and throw some fire things at you.  There are little mist trails 
    leader to each of the boilers levers, find where it begins to the boiler 
    he is on and then activate the lever.  If you get too close to Faustus 
    while not in Mist form or take too long to activate a lever he will jump 
    to another one.  After you do this 3 times Faustus will jump up onto the 
    chains.  The key here is to get into a corner and have a pretty wide 
    field of view so you spot Faustus right when he lands.  Get in a combat 
    stance and face him and when he charges use dodge it like you did during 
    the first part.  If you successfully dodge it Faustus will become 
    stunned and you can hit him.  Do this until he dies and you will receive 
    the Jump ability.
    
    MARCUS
    Marcus will vanish and start hitting you when you both fall.  On both 
    the left and the right are levers to start ringing the bells.  For some 
    reason, this will interfere with Marcus' ability to go invisible, giving 
    you time to hit him.  Keep alternating sides and hitting him until he is 
    about halfway down in health and his Holy Guards will come through and 
    destroy the bells.  Run around the altar and back up the stairs to the 
    2nd floor.  Marcus will be semi-invisible now.  You'll have to pick up 
    his Holy Guards and throwing them into the bells to stun him, allowing 
    you to beat him up. (submitted by hootenj@aol.com) Watch out for the 
    fire arrows they use if you are far away and simply kill them if you are 
    low on life.  Eventually you will kill Marcus and then acquire the Charm 
    ability.
    
    SEBASTIAN
    Normal Strategy:
    This strategy is the way the designers intended for you to beat 
    Sebastian, one of the harder bosses in the game.  If you are having 
    trouble with him then look down to the Easy Strategy.  
    
    Use Kain's throwing technique, something I never take advantage of, to 
    harm him.  Advance on him and pick him up, then look for the steam 
    coming out and try to throw him so the steam will be upon him when he 
    stands up.  If you do it right he will take some damage and then he'll 
    yell "It burns!" and advance on you with a red aura (unblockable) move.  
    Quickly dodge it to the left or right and continue throwing him into the 
    steam until he starts running around the room.  The middle will start 
    releasing energy so quickly get on the side and avoid the steam coming 
    out of the pipes.  Try to always keep an eye on Sebastian and when he 
    hangs onto one of the 3 bars quickly position yourself so the purple 
    energy in the middle is between you and Sebastian.  If you do it right 
    he will jump at you and get caught in the beam and damage himself.  Do 
    this 3 times and he'll then try to destroy the Nexus Stone.  Jump up to 
    the platform and Sebastian will jump off.  Use your charm ability on the 
    worker through the window and make him turn the steam on by throwing the 
    lever to your right.  Sebastian will jump up and you'll have to grab him 
    by the next and throw him down into the steam at least twice for him to 
    finally die.  Kain will now acquire the Berserk ability, a more powerful 
    version of the Fury ability which also is activated in the same manner.
    
    Easy Strategy:
    As soon as you start the fight and Sebastian is standing in front of 
    you, don't touch a single button.  If you don't do anything, neither 
    will he and the steam will eventually kill him. (submitted by 
    ceniga@bendnet.com)
    
    MAGNUS 
    Go forward to an area with huge statues of the Prison Guardians.  Magnus 
    will appear and jump on the center platform.  Simply use your 
    Telekinesis skill to push him off and he'll start to charge up his 
    Immolate ability.  Get behind one of the statues and he'll blow it up 
    instead of you.  Continue to do this for 3 of the statues and he'll run 
    away after you knock him off again. Jump down to the next area and 
    notice the red scythes (Prison Guardian weapon) that are pointed like 
    they want to hurt someone.  Get near one and then use your Telekinesis 
    ability on Magnus and he'll charge you.  When he gets near you dodge out 
    of the way and he'll hit the scythe instead.  Do this for all 4 statues 
    with scythes.  After this is done jump on the debris and use your 
    Telekinesis ability on all 4 of the green symbols.  This will recreate 
    the statue, which just happens to be of Moebius the Time streamer.  Most 
    of the statue is on the raised platform, however, his cane is not.  Get 
    in front of the cane as you did with the scythes and make Magnus charge 
    at you.  Dodge out of the way and he'll break off the cane.  Now simply 
    make him charge at you while in front of the raised platform with the 
    statue on it and dodge out of the way and Magnus will be finished.  
    You'll gain the ability of Immolate, the last ability and the coolest 
    attack because it instantly kills (except the Sarafan Lord).
    
    SARAFAN LORD
    The object in this first part is to knock the Sarafan Lord off the 
    platform.  To do this you will have to use your Telekinesis ability on 
    him to stun him.  Try to do this between his 3 bursts of energy he 
    throws at you.  After he is stunned quickly use your Jump ability to 
    land on him in order to push him off.  You will know you are on the 
    Sarafan Lord when your normally blue/white cursor turns to red.  Once he 
    is down you will watch another cut scene.  In this second part you will 
    have to block the Sarafan Lord's attacks (he will block 99% of your 
    attacks so don't bother) until your rage meter is full, then unleash 
    your Immolate ability on him.  Be sure to dodge his last unblockable 
    move and then continue to block.  You will have to Immolate him a total 
    of 4 times before you will watch another cut scene.  In this third and 
    final part Kain will have the Soul Reaver.  You must continue to block 
    the Sarafan Lord's attacks until your rage meter is full and then 
    unleash your Berserk ability on him.  Be careful when dodging his red 
    aura attacks because you might fall off due to the very small platform 
    you are on.  Once you use your Berserk ability on him twice he will die.  
    Congratulations for beating Blood Omen 2 and enjoy the ending movie (no, 
    there aren't any alternate endings).
    
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    1.4- Dark Gifts
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    MIST ABILITY
    Acquire From: N/A
    
    The Mist Ability allows Kain to become partially invisible where there 
    is mist on the ground.  However, if Kain wanders too close in front of 
    an enemy, they will detect him.  It can be used for stealth cover to get 
    through a thickly guarded area or for a more fun method of stealth 
    kills.  To stealth kill an enemy, Kain must be in his mist form and 
    sneak up behind an enemy.  If Kain is directly behind an enemy and in a 
    combat stance a skull icon will appear above the enemy's head.  You can 
    then press the attack button and a directional (left/right or up/down) 
    to perform different stealth kills.  Every weapon, including Kain's 
    claws, has 2 stealth attacks.  Each will instantly kill the enemy.  Your 
    Mist Ability is useless to any enemies that make use of glyph magic as 
    they can detect your presence without having to see you.  It is still 
    possible to achieve a stealth kill on these enemies but hardly worth it.
    
    FURY ABILITY 
    Acquire From: N/A
    
    This ability allows Kain to perform one unblockable attack on any given 
    enemy.  It can only be used when his rage bar is about 3/4 filled.  You 
    can only raise Kain's rage bar by blocking attacks of enemies.  Once you 
    have enough rage Kain will begin to glow red and then perform this 
    attack.  This ability is only useful before Kain acquires the Berserk 
    Ability.
    
    JUMP ABILITY
    Acquire From: Defeating Faustus
    
    The Jump Ability allows Kain to access areas out of the reach of any 
    human by jumping extremely far distances.  It's primary use is simply 
    this.  It is used in minor puzzles to get to seemingly impossible areas 
    of a level.  However, it can also be used as a combative weapon if used 
    correctly.  To do this you would access it from your Dark Gift menu and 
    the purple cursor would appear, signifying where Kain would land.  If 
    you move this cursor over an enemy that is within range it will turn 
    from purple to red.  Now if Kain jumps he will land on the enemy, 
    inflicting damage and pushing the enemy onto the ground.  Not all that 
    useful as the damage is equivalent to 1 or 2 hits from Kain's claws, 
    however it is fun to pull off.
    
    CHARM ABILITY 
    Acquire From: Defeating Marcus
    
    Kain can take control of any civilian-type human and make them do simple 
    tasks with this ability such as using levers to let Kain proceed.  Kain 
    can use this ability as long as he has a line of site such as throw 
    windows or gates.  Using this ability on combatives will make them shake 
    their head or do nothing at all so it is not an affective technique.  
    Its' primary use is to solve puzzles throughout the game.
    
    BESERK ABILITY
    Acquire From: Defeating Sebastian
    
    This ability replaces the Fury ability as a more affective attack 
    against enemies using the rage bar for power like Fury does.  Kain will 
    perform several devastating attacks against the targeted foe and end 
    with a Matrix-like camera rotation and freeze frame.  It looks pretty 
    cool ;)
    
    TELEKINESIS ABILITY 
    Acquire From: Visiting the Seer
    
    This is the only ability that you do not have to kill to acquire.  It is 
    primarily used in puzzle situations like the Charm ability, only on 
    objects instead of people.  In fact, it can only be used on special 
    green symbols that appear throughout the later levels (Chapter 8 and 
    beyond).  There is, however, a combative use to push enemies away, 
    giving Kain time to escape.  The push, however, does not do any damage 
    to enemies.
    
    IMMOLATE ABILITY 
    Acquire From: Defeating Magnus 
    
    The last and most useful skill Kain acquires in Blood Omen 2.  This 
    skill is purely combative and requires a full rage bar for Kain to 
    execute.  Doing so will result in an instant death from the targeted 
    creature.  The only exceptions to this are the Hylden Pet and 
    (obviously) The Sarafan Lord.

    2.1- Chapter 1: The Slums
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    5%
    This part is really just a tutorial and you shouldn't need a walkthrough 
    for it but I'll still do a write-up for it.  After the cut scene walk 
    down to the red circle.  This is called a checkpoint and it marks your 
    progress. Continue around and down around the alley, listening to 
    conversion or looking around like the game wants you to do.  At the gate 
    you will watch another cut scene.  Jump on the little slum houses up to 
    the Umah and watch another cut scene.  Jump down(and try to float) and 
    turn left to jump over the gate.  Continue down the path until you come 
    to a large gate.  Turn right and you'll see
    something shiny next to the smaller gate; that is a lever, go up to it 
    and pull it.  Follow Umah and the gate will close behind you.  Now go up 
    to the door and use it as you would a lever when it is highlighted.  
    Walk over the checkpoint.
    
    15%
    Open the next door and watch the cut scene.  For those of you that have 
    played the original Blood Omen, you will become very nostalgic upon 
    hearing this guy.  Jump down or follow down the stairs to the guy in 
    chains and once he is highlighted in red do as the game tells you and 
    suck his blood(You must hold down this button if you want all of his 
    blood).  In the next cut scene Umah explains about "lore".  Lore is a 
    sort of experience that enhances your blood bar so you are harder to 
    kill.  Continue down the green-lit hallway and drink the blood of the 
    next chained person.  You'll need to hit them before you can drink, 
    however.  Your blood bar should expand upon drinking.  Continue down and 
    operate the lever to open the door and go through.  You can kill the 
    person on the right if you want and then go across the checkpoint after 
    the cut scene.
    
    25%
    Go to your left and jump over the running water.  Walk up to the shining 
    coffer and activate it like you would if you wanted to suck blood.  You 
    must also hold this button down to get everything from the coffer.  This 
    is a lore coffer; it should expand your life bar again but later in the 
    game it won't always do this.  Continue walking forward to the hazy 
    green wall and watch the cut scene.  Follow Umah to the right down into 
    the sewer and over the checkpoint.
    
    30%
    Turn right and Umah will train you in fighting.  Follow the instructions 
    on the screen to block all of her attacks.  For the next part beat the 
    crap out of Umah until the next cut scene appears.  Again, follow the 
    instructions on the screen to grab and throw Umah around.  Do this a 
    couple times and continue through the sewer after the cut scene.  Take a 
    left and walk over the checkpoint.
    
    40%
    Turn around and you'll see a green glyph box near where you just came 
    from.  Activate the valve near it as you would a lever and the water 
    will drain.  Jump down and across to where Umah was.  Turn right and go 
    up the ramp.  In this next scene you will encounter your first enemy- a 
    thug.  Walk up to him and beat him down, when he starts to crawl on the 
    ground he won't get back up but you can still kick him in the groin if 
    you desire.  Afterwards, use blood suck to restore your health and pick 
    up his weapon when it is highlighted.  Go forward and left to a lore 
    coffer, activate it.  Turn around and go up the tunnel to your left.  
    Watch the cut scene and you will use your first dark gift.  Walk over 
    the checkpoint.

    Follow the instructions on the screen and use your Mist ability.  Now 
    turn left and walk up behind a guard, be sure that you are behind him 
    because if you get too close in his view range he can still spot you.  
    Once directly behind him you will see a skull appear over his head, 
    attack him and you will instantly kill him and scare the peasant.  Note 
    that if you decide to blood suck then you will no longer be in your Mist 
    form and others can attack you.  Walk forward and behind the large vault 
    to find a lore coffer you can activate.  Turn around and go left up the 
    hill and through to the next section.  If you haven't already picked up 
    a weapon you can do so here and kill some peasants.  Here you will find 
    something that looks similar to a lore coffer but it is in fact a weapon 
    box.  Use it and a purple energy will engulf your weapon.  This enhances 
    it's damage.  Continue down and Umah will explain glyph energy.  Before 
    activating it kill the thug and then use
    the lever.  To the right by the fire is a lore coffer you can also 
    activate.  Once energy has been supplied to the lever, use it and the 
    gate will open.  Walk over the checkpoint after the cut scene.
    
    60%
    On the left is a lore coffer you can use and you can watch the thug kill 
    the peasant.  Kill the thug and ignore the stairs for now, go through 
    the tunnel.  Notice the mist on the floor, use your Mist ability, 
    stealth kill the thug and use the lore coffer.  Continue down the 
    alleyway to a glyph box.  Use the lever and now head back to the stairs.  
    Climb up the stairs and follow the patch till you come to a door by a 
    glyph box.  Use the lever to open the door and go down the tunnel to the 
    next checkpoint.
    
    75%
    Note the mist in this area, change into your Mist form and use the valve 
    on the right wall to turn off the steam.  Steam is water so it harms 
    you.  Stealth kill the thug and continue around the corner.  Walk down 
    the stairs and onto the street to
    find 2 thugs.  Simply hit whichever is closest to you at the time until 
    they are both dead, usually only one attacks at a time.  Turn back to 
    where the peasant is by the fire and you'll find a lore coffer to use.  
    Run up ahead to find Umah.  After the cut scene, continue straight ahead 
    through the doorway and kill the thug to the right.  Climb the ladder 
    that he was guarding up to the roof.  Use the lore coffer at the end of 
    the roof and then go back to the ladder and jump up onto the other 
    section of the roof to activate the checkpoint.  
    
    85%
    Jump to the next roof and then down to where there is a catwalk and a 
    peasant to the right of it.  Jump to where the peasant is and walk into 
    the building.  If you need it, there is a sword on the floor but the 
    enhanced club you have is still better (if you still have it).  Go 
    outside and jump across the way and open the door.  Inside you will meet 
    your first block.  These blocks play important roles in puzzles and are 
    rather annoying due to the sluggishly slow movement.  Move the box away 
    from the door once it is highlighted and then open this door to 
    continue.  Take the first right down the path and take a left into the 
    building.  Go into the elevator here and use the lever to ride it down.  
    Walk into the next part and activate the lever next to the glyph box.  
    Turn around and take the elevator back up.  Before leaving the building 
    to your left there is a lore coffer you can use.  Take a left and go 
    down the previously closed gate.  Jump down
    and follow the path to a large gate with 2 thugs killing a peasant.  Use 
    the lever to the left of the gate to open it and then push the box under 
    the gate.  Again, use the lever and the gate will start to close but the 
    box will block it so you can now travel through to the other side and 
    watch the cut scene.  END

    Walk down and activate the checkpoint and take a right to find a lore 
    coffer and a lever near a glyph box.  Use both of these and go back to 
    find a thug to kill.  Take his weapon and go to the wheel.  If you just 
    press the button the gate will not open.  You must hold it until the 
    gate it all the way to the top and then go through.  Ahead use your Mist
    ability to kill a new enemy, thieves.  These women are rather annoying 
    because they carry crossbows to shoot fire arrows at you.  Stealth kill 
    the first one and then normally kill the next.  Might want to take their 
    daggers, they are a little better.  Climb up the ladder and open the 
    door to the checkpoint.
    
    25%
    Go to your right and down the stairs to a lore coffer to use.  Continue 
    to the other side and go left to kill 2 thugs.  Continue on your way and 
    kill the next thug near the end.  On the right wall is a glyph box and a 
    lever.  Activate it and run back to the checkpoint.  Continue going down 
    that path and you'll cross the bridge you just lowered into the next 
    section.  Open the door and proceed down the stairs where you'll find a 
    thief to your right.  Kill her and activate the checkpoint.
    
    40%
    Open the left gate using the wheel, remember you must hold it down until 
    the gate fully opens.  Use the lore coffer inside and then go back.  On 
    the other side of the room follow the stairs up to a thief, kill her and 
    the screaming peasants.  Go into the room on your left and activate the 
    lever.  Go back down to the basement and use the wheel to open the large 
    gate.  In this room, use the weapon box and activate the next lever.  Go 
    back upstairs and use the door to the outside.  Wait for the glyph 
    energy to get there and then use the lever to deactivate the ward 
    barrier.  This next area has mist so use your Mist ability and *try* to 
    stealth kill one of the thugs, it usually doesn't work however.  Once 
    dead, use the lore coffer and walk ahead to find a 2 thieves and some 
    mist.  Using your ability you can get at least one of them on a stealth 
    kill, and if you are good you can get both.  Use the wheel to open the 
    gate, remembering to hold the
    button until it fully opens.  Walk to the left side and use your Mist 
    ability to stealth kill the next thief.  Kill the thug up ahead by the 
    well and continue to the checkpoint.

    Open the door on your left and go to the back of the tavern by the 
    stairs on the right to watch a cut scene.  Afterwards, go up the stairs 
    and kill the thug guarding the hidden entrance.  Go up to the bookshelf 
    and pull it away from the wall.  In here, kill the thief, go down the 
    stairs and out the door.  Follow the path to 2 thugs and a box, kill 
    them and push the box to the metal fence.  Jump on it and then jump over 
    the fence to the checkpoint.
    
    75%
    Use the lore coffer and then continue through the broken fence to a 
    thug.  Kill him and go up to a graveyard covered in mist.  This is the 
    first section with the guards, stealth kill the first one and then you 
    must fight the other one normally.  Take their sword unless you still 
    have your enhanced dagger and climb up the ladder to your left.  Go 
    across the plank of wood and use the lever to activate the elevator.  
    Follow the tunnel and watch the short cut scene.  Take a left and 
    activate the checkpoint.
    
    90%
    Use the valve to turn off the steam and use the door on the left to find 
    a weapon box and lore coffer for you.  Go back through the door and walk 
    along the catwalk and watch the cut scene.  Use your Mist ability, walk 
    over to the lever and, still in your Mist form, go through the doorway 
    and stealth kill the guard.  Go to the left to find 3 levers; activate 
    all 3 and then go back around and use the valve to tenderize the 2 
    civilians.  Use the lever to your left to open the door and go through.  
    Pull the lever on the right wall and then the lever next to the door 
    ahead to open it.  Here, use your Mist ability to stealth kill the 
    Sarafan guard and go to your left down the tunnel.  Use this lever to 
    open the door and climb the ladder to your immediate right.  Pull both 
    levers here and go through the left doorway, kill the Sarafan, and then 
    pull the lever on the door other door opposite the one you came in.  Go 
    back around and pull the middle lever to deactivate the steam from the 
    ladder, go through the right door and up the ladder.  You must be quick 
    because the right door is set to close automatically.  Pull the lever 
    when you get to the top of the ladder to completely shut off the steam.  
    Now go back down and jump through the hole to the checkpoint.
    
    BOSS: Faustus (95%)
    After entering the door and watching the cut scene Faustus will begin 
    kicking your ass.  Simply block until your rage bar is full and then use 
    your Fury attack on him.  When you see him jump back with a red aura 
    around him quickly dodge to the right or left by pressing right/left and 
    jump in combat stance.  You can not block any red aura attacks, however 
    he also has a yellow aura attack that you can block but it will push you 
    back.  It might take a few tries to get his pattern down but if you keep 
    using Fury when your bar is full you won't have much trouble.  After 3 
    times he'll run away to another room.  Follow him and here you'll have 
    to use your Mist ability.  Faustus will jump on top of boilers and throw 
    some fire things at you.  There are little mist trails leader to each of 
    the boilers levers, find where it begins to the boiler he is on and then 
    activate the lever.  If you get too close to Faustus while not in Mist 
    form or take too long to activate a lever he will jump to another one.  
    After you do this 3 times Faustus will jump up onto the chains.  The key 
    here is to get into a corner and have a pretty wide field of view so you 
    spot Faustus right when he lands.  Get in a combat stance and face him 
    and when he charges use dodge it like you did during the first part.  If 
    you successfully dodge it Faustus will become stunned and you can hit 
    him.  Do this until he dies and you will receive the Jump ability.  Go 
    outside and to the broken bridge and select the Jump ability.  Aim it 
    until the cursor is purple (not white) and jump to the other side.  Go 
    down the tunnel on the left.  END

    Umah shows you the way to go in the cut scene so turn right and go down 
    the alley (you can kill the Guard if you wish).  Here you will find a 
    lore coffer and a peasant to kill as well as 2 sets of stairs.  Go up 
    the right set of stairs and then use your newly acquired Jump skill to 
    get to the other set of buildings.  Remember you can only jump when the 
    circle turns from white to purple.  Go over the checkpoint and continue 
    down and use your Mist ability.  Stealth kill the thug and take his 
    weapon as you will need it for the other thug coming over to 
    investigate.  Kill this one and another one that comes from the left 
    alley and continue that way.  On the street, ignore the Guard for now 
    and go up the left set of stairs to the gate to watch a cut scene.  Jump 
    off and kill the Guard, being sure you do not push him back through the 
    ward gate, you want his sword after he dies.  This will be the first 
    time a Guard uses a red aura (unblockable) attack on you so be careful.  
    Once you see him jump back and charge move back a little to get out of 
    range.  Continue down the street and dispose of the next Guard then turn 
    around to see the tavern.  Use the door and walk inside and approach the 
    barkeep for a cut scene.  Now go back to the gate and he'll open it for 
    you.  Feel free to kill him, there is no use for him.  Down the alley 
    you'll find 2 thugs, dumb as ever.  After killing them exit the alley to 
    find yourself on the other side of the ward gate and near a Sarafan 
    outpost.  Kill the Guard by the gate and walk up the stairs behind you.  
    On the structure you'll find a lore coffer and, facing the keep, to your 
    right you'll see a glyph box.  Use your Jump skill to get to the top of 
    the building and use the lever to activate the glyph magic.  Follow the 
    pipe to a lever beside a double door.  Pull the lever and enter the 
    building.  These weird green things are glyph batteries.  You need to 
    pull the one to your left, like you would a box, over to the broken one 
    in the next room.  Pull the broken one away from the pipe and replace it 
    with the green glowing one.  Now go into the side room with the 
    generators and pull the lever to open the door.  Before proceeding go to 
    the opposite side room and use the lore coffer.  Using the lever to open 
    the door you'll find a checkpoint.
    
    20%
    Go into the alley and if you approach the gate he'll say you need a 
    password.  Go to your left and out to confront some thugs.  Walk out 
    onto the street and kill the Guard patrolling the area.  Walk down the 
    street on the right side until you come to a vendor and watch the cut 
    scene.  Go back to where you killed the Guard and walk up the stairs on 
    the ramp and go right up another set of stairs to a gate with a lever.  
    Open the gate and go left to the gate that required the password and 
    he'll open it for you.  Go into the building and you'll find 3 chained 
    peasants (no, killing them never gets old) and a sword on the ground.  
    Climb up the ladder and use your Jump ability to get over to the next 
    checkpoint.
    
    25%
    You'll find a lore coffer here and to your right another rooftop to jump 
    to that is covered in mist, how lucky.  Use your Jump ability and then 
    your Mist ability to stealth kill the thug.  Of course, there is another 
    thug in the corner that you can't stealth kill so just dispose of him 
    normally.  Continue forward and jump down to find another 2 thugs in a 
    storage area.  On the other side is a lever that you need to operate, 
    then turn around and climb back up the ladder.  Use your Jump ability to 
    get to the other side with the now activated lever to open the door to 
    the warehouse (You'll most likely need to get on top of the small shack 
    to your right if you want to make the jump for some reason).  Dispose of 
    the thug to your right and walk around to your left and down a flight of 
    stairs.  You'll come to 2 talking peasants, notice the cracked wood 
    where they stand and a box hanging directly above it.  Walk across the 
    room and up a flight of stairs to find another thug and a lever that 
    will drop the box and open a new path for you.  Jump down the hole and 
    go down the path to the next checkpoint.
    
    30%
    Follow the path up a set of stairs to 2 thugs with their very keen 
    perception (sarcasm for those of you that can't tell).  Continue forward 
    and around to a small room with a box.  Pull the lever to the left of it 
    to open the door and push the box out.  Continue pushing it along this 
    metal slide thingy onto the elevator then activate the lever to your 
    right.  The box will rise and now go around to the other side of the 
    metal slide thingy that you slid the box on.  When the entire thing 
    highlights like a box you will be able to pull it, thus revealing a 
    direct path for the box to fall through more cracked wood.  Climb the 
    ladder in the room where the box originally was, dispose of the guards 
    on this floor, and then push the box off the edge to open yet another 
    path for you.  You are now in the sewers and directly ahead of you is 
    another checkpoint.

    Go down the path with some rubble and you'll encounter a thief in the 
    small hallway.  Another thief will be coming down the stairs that you 
    may also slaughter.  Go up the stairs to find a lore coffer for your 
    use, then continue down the hall.  Use the wheel to fill the room with 
    water and you can use your Jump ability to get to the box on the other 
    side.  Now climb up the ladder through the manhole.  On the street 
    you'll immediately encounter 2 Guards and further down you'll find a 
    thug.  Down the street will be 2 more Guards and a glyph box.  Activate 
    it and follow the pipe down to a now open gate and further down a 
    checkpoint.
    
    50%
    To your left will be 2 thugs to take out.  Jump over the debris ahead 
    and go through the tunnel.  In the room filled with water, climb up the 
    ladder and jump up to the rooftop in front of you with the guard on it.  
    Drop the box and then open the big metal door by using the lever on the 
    catwalk.  Put the box under the door when it's open and then use the 
    valve that was on your left to drain the water.  Quickly run up the 
    stairs with the blocked metal door to the next checkpoint. <special

    (ok, that last puzzle was worth 20% of the level... right)  Exit where 
    you'll see a gang war between the Thugs.  Let them kill each other and 
    finish them off.  Once you are finished with that pull the lever to open 
    a gate to the next area with the first Glyph Guard.  Even though he 
    can't see you, he'll be able to sense you because of his armor.  2 
    regular Guards will come out and you'll have to kill them (and take 
    their swords).  Sometimes the alarm won't be activated but most times it 
    is (glitch?).  Go to the left side of the building behind you and jump 
    up on the boxes then on the roof of the building.  Use your Jump ability 
    to leap onto the small building in front of you.  Use the ability again 
    to jump to the gate where a lore coffer awaits you.  This next part 
    involves a little bit of strategy; you can either jump down and take out 
    the Glyph Guard immediately, or deactivate the alarm by uses the switch 
    by the door.  I recommend flipping the switch first so more Guards don't 
    flood out of the building.  Dispose of all Sarafan, then open the gate 
    to your right by turning the wheel (hold it until the gate is up all the 
    way).  Run ahead to the checkpoint.

    Run out onto the street and to the right of the ward gate will be an 
    alley to continue down.  Use your Mist ability to stealth kill the Thug 
    guarding the gate.  Use the wheel to open the gate (I won't mention that 
    you have to hold it anymore, you should know it by now) and continue 
    forward to watch the cut scene.  Follow the vampire up the ramp, he 
    almost leaves a trail with his red aura feet.  Continue following him up 
    the building and use your Jump ability to leap to the next.  A Thug will 
    delay your progress, but only for a little bit.  Afterwards, use your 
    Jump ability again to get to the next building.  Watch the cut scene and 
    then continue around the corner and jump down to the checkpoint.

    Walk onto the street and take a left past the small ward gate to 
    encounter 2 Thugs.  After killing them, look to your right and notice 
    another ward gate... but also boxes stacked high enough for you to jump 
    over it.  Access the lore coffer then go down the stairs to discover a 
    rather simple puzzle.  Pull the lever to retract the bridge, then jump 
    over to the other side, go to the right, and turn around again to 
    discover a box.  Push it down into the pit and push it over to where the 
    bridge would be if you hadn't retracted it.  Jump over to where the 
    wheel is and use it to flood the pit.  Jump over the water back to the 
    lever and use it again to extend the bridge under the box that is now 
    floating.  Jump back, drain the water, and then safely push the box 
    across into the hole to open the gate.  Follow this tunnel and use the 
    switch at the end to deactivate all of the ward gates in the area.  Go 
    back to the surface and follow the street and take your first right 
    through a walkway with a sign of a lady in a blue dress over it.  Take a 
    left to a bridge over the street and use the lore coffer, then enter the 
    Blue Lady tavern.  Go down to the basement to find the leader of the 
    resistance.  END

    Cross over the checkpoint and continue up to the street where you'll 
    find 2 Guards.  Kill them and take a sword to better battle the Sarafan.  
    Go around the fountain and down the street where you can use your Mist 
    ability to stealth kill the Thug.  Continue down the stairs and watch 
    the cut scene.  You'll encounter your first Holy Guards here, charmed by 
    Marcus.  Kill them and take their weapons if you wish, although I prefer 
    the sword.  Use the wheel to open the gate and advance down, ignoring 
    the 2 dead Holy Guards.  Go through the door and you'll come to a 
    flooded section of the Upper City and 2 more Holy Guards.  Walk over the 
    checkpoint before killing them.

    After killing the Holy Guards, go across the catwalk into a room with 
    another Holy Guard and a wheel to rotate the center building.  Kill him 
    and use the wheel and then go back and across into this center building.  
    Use the wheel in here to rotate it again to get to the other side.  
    Before going up the stairs, look to your right to find a Lore Coffer 
    that you may access.  Go up the stairs and use your Mist ability when 
    you hear the voices of 2 Thugs; you will be able to stealth kill only 
    one of them, not like it really matters with easy Thugs.  Use the door 
    at the end of the hall and then climb up the ladder.  Use the wheel to 
    open the gate and walk out onto the street and activate the checkpoint.
    
    15%
    Walk down the street to your right and use your Mist ability as soon as 
    possible.  With a little sneaking around, you will manage to stealth 
    kill both Guards.  Continue walking down the street and kill the Guard 
    by the large wooden door.  On your left you can open the doors by 
    activating the lever, and then open the next set of doors to a 
    checkpoint.

    The Thieves will almost always notice you so the mist doesn't serve a 
    purpose here.  Kill them and continue down this large alley.  At the end 
    you'll see a chunk of the ladder missing and a box to the right; pull 
    the box back one and left one and then use it to jump on the ladder and 
    up onto the roof.  On the roof, kill the Thief that is preparing to... 
    well... steal something (go figure) and then jump through the skylight 
    into the house.  Another Thief will be in here, as well as a Lore Coffer 
    and a switch to open the door to the balcony.  The right side of the 
    balcony will be missing, allowing you to use your Jump ability to get 
    into the next building.  If you are quick, a Glyph Guard will cross in 
    front of the opening, allowing you to jump and harm him at the same time 
    (looks cool too!).  Kill both of the Glyph Guards in here and use the 
    Weapon Box in the corner before continuing down the stairs.  Open the 
    door and then use the wheel to open the gate and activate the 
    checkpoint.

    (this is a long chapter)  Ahead on the street you'll encounter a Glyph 
    Guard and you'll aware him to your presence, not like it matters.  Kill 
    him and then turn into your Mist form if the Guards further down haven't 
    also been alerted.  Try to stealth kill the normal Guard and dispose of 
    the Glyph Guard.  Go up to the guard house with the Sarafan flags on 
    either side and use the lever to open the door.  Go out the other door 
    and use the glyph box to transfer power, then use the wheel to open the 
    gate back onto the street.  Go down a little and use your Mist ability, 
    then use the now activated lever to raise the main gate to the keep.  
    Still using your ability, stealth kill the Guard up ahead and use the 
    second lever to raise the next gate and walk over the checkpoint.

    In the right corner there will be a Glyph Guard to kill, as well as one 
    up the stairs near the first.  One the wall by the running water will be 
    a valve to turn it off.  Run back up the stairs and use your Jump 
    ability to leap across where the water previously was.  Go to the right 
    and encounter yet another Glyph Guard with some mist, although he will 
    be alerted to you so it is pointless.  On the right wall will be another 
    valve to turn off the water running off a tunnel below. Jump off and go 
    through to a gate requiring you to use the wheel to open it.  As a 
    result, the other gate will close.  A group of Thugs will open it for 
    you and approach you.  After you slaughter them all, use the Lore Coffer 
    and proceed through the door to the checkpoint.

    Go forward to come to a gate puzzle.  Use the lever on the right to open 
    the gate in front of you, but also closing another.  Kill the Glyph 
    Guard in this area and then use the switch on the left side of the wall 
    to transfer the water from one side to the other.  Use the glyph box in 
    the newly drained pool to activate a switch on the right side.  Use the 
    lever on the wall to drain this pool and then activate the switch in the 
    newly drained pool to drop the box.  Again, flip the switch to drain the 
    water back into the original pool (ok I know this is confusing, bear 
    with me) allowing you to push the box.  Push the box into the corner 
    where the first gate is open.  You will notice this now blocks the gate 
    from swinging back to a closed position so go back up the stairs and use 
    this lever to open the 2nd gate.  Use the wheel in this area to open the 
    double doors to a new area and checkpoint.

    Go to the left towards the clock tower and 2 Glyph Guards will draw 
    their swords and advance towards you.  After killing them, enter the 
    clock tower and you'll see a box to your immediate left.  Push it two 
    squares over, you'll see why in a second.  Go up the stairs and use the 
    wheel by the weight to drop the weight all the way down (something the 
    box wouldn't have allowed), go back to the lever and activate it to ring 
    the bell.  Exit the clock tower and go through the newly opened gates 
    into the courtyard with the statue.  Kill the single Glyph Guard and 
    continue over the bridge to an elevator.  Use it to go up and then turn 
    right to see an open window.  Use your Jump ability to leap into it and 
    into the bedroom where a lore coffer is by the stairs.  Go down, kill 
    the Glyph Guard, and exit through the door to the checkpoint.

    Kill the Glyph Guard right in front of you, don't bother with the 
    stealth kill even though there is mist.  Go down to see a glyph battery 
    in use to your left.  It is caged however, so climb up the ladder and 
    use the wheel to raise it's cage, while lower the other one.  Move it 
    over to the right where the other section of the pipe is now caged, go 
    back up and use the wheel again to raise this cage, and go back down to 
    push it into position to bring power to the switch by the gate.  Use the 
    lever to open the gate and kill both Glyph Guards in this area.  Go 
    through the open gate and open the door into the building, where you'll 
    encounter another Glyph Guard on the stairs.  Go up the stairs and out 
    the door to the next section.  Watch the short cut scene that of the 
    Bishop's mansion and go down to the checkpoint.
    
    50%
    You can try using the Mist ability for a stealth kill, but odds are they 
    will spot you and you'll have to take down all 3 Guards normally.  In 
    the right corner of the area will be a Lore Coffer for your use, as well 
    as stairs to proceed up.  Jump onto the ladder and climb it up to the 
    broken window.  Use your Jump ability to get to the other building un-
    noticed.  Open the door and go through to the checkpoint.

    I swear I'll never understand how this game gauges progress... Anyways, 
    kill the evil Guard and go down the hall where there is mist, and to 
    your right, double doors that you may go through.  If you are careful 
    you can still get a stealth kill on this guard by avoiding him when he 
    is searching for you and circling around him.  Go down the stairs and 
    kill the other Guards.  (Note: It is very hard to fight any enemy in 
    this game on any sort of inclined plane, I suggest you always bait them 
    to a normal surface to fight)  In the corner will be a single door you 
    may open to proceed into a kitchen and then a study to encounter your 
    first Glyph Captain, which will soon become common place throughout 
    Meridian.  Kill him and take his weapon, a large blade that is one of my 
    favorite weapons.  The best strategy to use is to block his attacks 
    until he charges for his red aura (unblockable) move and to then dodge 
    it and hit him.  Approach the servant by the tunnel leading down and 
    watch the cut scene.  It isn't mandatory to kill this idiot, but I 
    always do because I'm not a nice person.  Go down the tunnel and you'll 
    be at the cathedral and a checkpoint.

    Kill the Glyph Guard up ahead and his buddy will open the gate and 
    attack you.  Go through the gate and down into the graveyard to 
    encounter a Holy Guard, we haven't seen those guys in awhile.  In a 
    corner by a crypt you'll see a block which you can drag away from the 
    wall to reveal a passage.  Go through to the other part of the graveyard 
    and kill the 5 Holy Guards throughout this area.  Try to get a stealth 
    kill off so you can enjoy your new huge axe thoroughly.  You'll find a 
    vault that isn't a vault at all, but a passage.  In the 4 corners of 
    this next room will be 4 blocks, push in the 3 black ones to open the 
    large iron door.  Follow this path out to another section of the 
    graveyard with 2 more Holy Guards.  There is a door at the other end you 
    may open to proceed to a checkpoint.

    Walk down the hall and you'll see a cut scene with the bishop.  Chase 
    after Marcus through the graveyard and down the street.  The door will 
    close as you approach him, simply activate the lever to raise it again 
    and climb up the set of ladders to the roof.  Use your Jump ability to 
    chase him through the stained glass window and to the next checkpoint.
    
    BOSS: Marcus (90%)
    Go forward to the roof and you'll watch a cut scene where you'll both 
    fall to the ground.    Marcus will vanish and start hitting you.  On 
    both the left and the right are levers to start ringing the bells.  For 
    some reason, this will interfere with Marcus' ability to go invisible, 
    giving you time to hit him.  Keep alternating sides and hitting him 
    until he is about halfway down in health and his Holy Guards will come 
    through and destroy the bells.  Run around the altar and back up the 
    stairs to the 2nd floor.  Marcus will be semi-invisible now.  You'll 
    have to pick up his Holy Guards and throwing them into the bells to stun 
    him, allowing you to beat him up. (submitted by hootenj@aol.com) Watch 
    out for the fire arrows they use if you are far away and simply kill 
    them if you are low on life.  Eventually you will kill Marcus and then 
    acquire the Charm ability.  END

    Cross over the checkpoint right in front of you and go down the stairs 
    to the courtyard.  To your right is a line of mist that will make for an 
    easy stealth kill of the Guard.  Take his sword and then walk up to the 
    small building and look through the window to find a citizen inside.  
    Select your Charm ability and follow the instructions at the top of the 
    screen to use it and take control of the human.  Use him to flip the 
    switch and open the door, release the human and then kill him and 
    proceed through the other door.  Walk over the checkpoint up ahead.

    Wait a little bit for a Guard to walk by and then use your Mist ability 
    to stealth kill him.  Down the hall on the left will be a citizen and a 
    weapon box you can use to upgrade your sword.  Just outside of that room 
    is a valve to turn off the steam and walk through the newly cleared 
    doorway.  Walk down the stairs in this next room and dispose of the 
    Guard.  Use the lever to the right of the machine and it will start 
    doing... whatever it is it's supposed to do.  Now, push the glyph 
    battery to your left at the other end of the machine and push it back to 
    the radiator thing then jump back on the platform and use this switch to 
    start the flame in the machine.  If you did it right, the glyph battery 
    will explode, letting you continue through the doorway.  Follow the 
    path, killing the thief along the way, and take a right up the stairs to 
    use the Lore Coffer.  Now go back down the stairs and use the lever to 
    open the door.  Don't go for the checkpoint quite yet.  Instead, 
    immediately change to your Mist form and try to stealth kill the Guard.  
    After that walk over the checkpoint.

    Follow the mist trail to the left hallway and stealth kill the Guard 
    that walks over to kick the thief.  Activate the lever by the glyph box

    over this checkpoint in the misty hallway.

    (10% of the chapter... uh huh)  Use your Mist ability and stealth kill 
    the Guard, do not risk alerting him to your presence by killing the 
    citizen first.  Kill the other guard then go through the doorway to your 
    left to use a Lore Coffer.  Continue down the hallway (you can't open 
    the door) and out into a gigantic room with a large pool of water in the 
    middle.  Jump down and go left while in your Mist form.  Stealth kill 
    the Guard and go around till you see a platform above you with a citizen 
    on it.  Use your Charm ability to control him and use the valve, which 
    will lower the water level.  Continue around the level and kill the next 
    Glyph Guard you encounter and you'll find a ladder to climb up to one of 
    the platforms.  Use the valve to further lower the water level and then 
    look to your right.  You'll see the last platform which you can get to 
    by using your Jump ability.  Use this valve and you can jump down into 
    the now emptied pool.  Find the pipe and jump in and follow it down to a 
    Glyph Guard on some stairs.  Kill him, go up the stairs, and use the 
    lever to open the door.  Walk over the checkpoint ahead in the hallway.

    Don't bother with your Mist ability because the Glyph Captain will 
    detect you.  Kill him and open the door to the next area.  Kill the 
    Guard to your left and use the ladder to your right to climb up to the 
    top where a glyph box controls where power goes.  Use the switch to 
    change it over to the left side and then jump to your right and enter 
    the middle building where a switch lies on a wall.  Use it to open the 
    door on the side of the room you just gave power to and head back to the 
    top.  Use the switch again to bring power to the right side, allowing 
    you to go through the newly opened doorway.  Use the elevator at the end 
    of this room and activate the checkpoint.

    On the right side of the room is a weapon box to upgrade you current 
    weapon, down the hall on your left is a room with a lever that will 
    unlock the door to the next area.  Open the door and enter to the main 
    part of the keep.  Use your Mist ability and wait for the Glyph Captain 
    to come around so you can stealth kill him.  Do not take his axe, your 
    upgraded sword (if that is indeed what you have) is better.  Kill the 
    other Glyph Captain in this area then look up on the 2nd level to find a 
    citizen.  Use your Charm ability on him and make him run through the 
    hall with the Glyph Captain and use the lever by the glyph box to 
    deactivate the ward gate.  Run back to the area with the door you came 
    through and go left to a mural room.  Walk over the checkpoint to your 
    right and prepare for a fight.

    Kill the Glyph Captain and look to your right down the stairs where 
    another Glyph Captain is waiting.  Use your Jump ability to hit him and 
    then kill him like the others.  By all this blocking that you have to 
    do, your upgraded sword has probably broken by now so take this one's 
    axe.  Go back up the stairs and to your right where a citizen is behind 
    a closed gate and watch the cut scene.  Go back to where you killed the 
    last Glyph Captain and you'll find your target.  Kill both the citizen 
    and the Glyph Captain then return to the woman.  Proceed down the hall 
    where 2 citizens will call a Glyph Captain to their rescue.  Dispose of 
    him and continue down and around the hall to an elevator that will take 
    you up a floor.  Walk forward a little and kill the Glyph Captain that 
    rounds the corner.  Walk out to the broken terrace and use your Jump 
    ability to reach the one on the other side.  Turn left and use the lever 
    to lower the ladder (just in case you fall) and then continue down that 
    path and use your Jump ability again to get to the other side.  Go down 
    this hall to arrive at the place where your charmed citizen had 
    deactivated the ward gate.  Kill the Glyph Guard and take a right to the 
    2nd floor of the dining hall.  Go around till you find a switch that 
    will open a door to the next area and a checkpoint.

    After you watch the cut scene, jump down and throw the switch on the 
    side which will raise a ward gate and the alarm will sound.  Kill all of 
    the Glyph Captains in this area, some will come out of the door, and 
    then jump onto the ladder on the side back up to the 2nd floor.  Go 
    through the door up ahead to find a room with an elevator guarded by a 
    Glyph Guard.  Kill him and ride the elevator up a floor, activating the 
    alarm.  Go up the spiral staircase and use the lever to open the door.  
    Quickly jump down and go through the door before it closes.  Use your 
    Mist ability and stealth kill the Guard, then kill the other Glyph 
    Captain that is about to kill the citizen.  Go up the stairs and around 
    to a switch that will reveal a secret passageway.  Go down this way and 
    use your Charm ability on the citizen on the other side of the door.  As 
    the citizen, walk forward to find a switch on the staircase that will 
    open the door for Kain.  Upon entering note the passage to your left but 
    ignore it for now and go up the stairs to use a Lore Coffer.  Return 
    back and go through that passage to find a checkpoint.

    Kill the Guard up ahead then use the lever to open the door out to the 
    roof.  Watch the cut scene with the Glyph Knight and 2 Guards.  Use your 
    Mist ability to stealth kill the Guard in your area and then approach 
    the Glyph Knight.  Kill him and use a fury attack if you have on to make 
    it easier.  Also dispose of the other Guard and go to the left side of 
    the chapel to use the switch to deactivate the ward gate.  Enter the 
    main door by using the lever and watch the cut scene.  Afterwards, look 
    to the left to see a statue of some Sarafan hero.  Go to it and pull it 
    away from the wall then go back around to the glyph box and use the 
    switch so the ward gate by Umah is deactivated.  Go back to Umah and 
    watch the cut scene.  END

    Upon entering the building, take a left and follow the path to a back 
    room where some blue cube things are being produced.  On the wall will 
    be a glyph box and a valve to control where the energy goes.  Use the 
    valve first and then the glyph box to direct the energy to the right 
    pipe.  Go back to the first room you were in and use the lever to open 
    the gate when the glyph energy reaches it.  Before heading up, go back 
    and change the valve again so the energy is directed to the left.  Now 
    go up the stairs and around the corner to a room with a Glyph Captain 
    and a Lore Coffer.  Kill him and use the lever to open the door to 
    continue up the stairs.  Follow the path to the next checkpoint.

    opposite side where there will be a checkpoint to your right.

    Walk around the corner and watch the cut scene.  Afterwards, kill the 2 
    thieves along your path.  At the end you'll find a switch that is not

    it and then kill the thief that is quickly advancing on you.  Run around 
    to your left to find a ladder up to a platform where a worker is walking 
    around.  On this platform is a newly introduced weapon, and my favorite- 
    the double-edged Darth Maul weapon ;)  Pick it up if you wish but don't 
    go up the slide, instead turn around and use your Jump ability to get 
    onto the next set of crates.  To your right will be another set of 
    crates with a Lore Coffer that you can reach with your Jump ability 
    also.  To your right on this same section of crates will be crates 
    configured to act as stairs.  Jump from one to the other until you are 
    at the top where you can use your Jump ability to get back to the main 
    path you were originally on to your left.  Now use the lever to open the 
    door and enter a mist-filled area.  Go to your left and inside the room 
    with the very annoying music and kill the Industrial Guard.  Activate 
    the glyph box and go back to the hall, killing the other Industrial 
    Guard, and continuing through the door to the checkpoint.

    Walk forward to the elevator to ride it down.  Walk around to the right 
    and kill the thief.  Be careful of the other thief's fire arrows, you'll 
    get her in a second.  After both are dead, jump down to the worker area 
    and note the 4 boilers with 4 levers in each corner.  Use each lever and 
    the main switch on the second floor will be activated.  Climb the ladder 
    back up and use the lever to start the conveyer belt.  Jump back down 
    and watch the glyph box be powered up then follow it down the conveyer 
    belt to the next area.  Use the Lore Coffer to your right walk through 
    to the next area to watch the cut scene... a bomb with a lever... 
    right...  Anyways, go through the newly created gigantic hole in the 
    side of the building and dispose of all Industrial Guards.  Walk around 
    to the other side of the 2nd floor to the checkpoint.

    have the darth maul weapon (woot!).  Continue down to the last set of 
    columns and use your Jump ability to get over to the left side.  Follow

    you can continue down the conveyer belt to the checkpoint on your right.

    Use your Mist ability to stealth kill at least one of the Industrial 
    Guards and kill the other.  In the back left corner there will be a door 
    to continue through.  In this next area the lever is broken but there is 
    a large window with a worker on the other side.  Use your Charm ability 
    to take control of one and then pull the lever on the bomb next to the 
    window to blow it up.  At this point a Glyph Guard will come and try to 
    kill you.  Kill him and jump through the broken window and to the right 
    down the tunnel.  At this point the cave will start collapsing and you 
    can be hit by the falling rocks.  To your right will be a lore coffer 
    and then continue down the main tunnel.  When you come to the next room 
    watch the cut scene, then use the window to your advantage and use your 
    Charm ability to take control of another worker.  As the worker, use the 
    lever to open the door for Kain then release him.  Use your Mist ability 
    to stealth kill the Industrial Guard, don't bother with the next one 
    because he is a Glyph Guard.  Continue down the hall and on your left 
    will be a door to the next area.  To your right will be another large 
    window to use your Charm ability on the worker.  As the worker, pull the 
    lever right in front of you then turn back into Kain and jump on the 
    conveyer belt to continue forward to the checkpoint.

    Use your Mist ability and sneak behind one of the Industrial Guards to 
    stealth kill him.  You can try to stealth kill the other but it takes 
    too long in my opinion.  Use the lever to open the door on your right 
    and then pull the lever by the window before using your Charm ability on 
    the worker on the other side.  Run through the conveyer belt and then 
    take a left and use this lever to open the conveyer belt for Kain.  
    Switch back to Kain and go through to find 2 Industrial Guards to kill.  
    Before going through the doorway ahead of you, take a right to where the 
    worker originally was to access a Lore Coffer.  In the next area use the 
    lever to go through the door to a misty hallway.  Use your Mist ability 
    and sneak past the Industrial Guards to the left room.  Go into the 
    office with a large window and stand a pretty far distance away from it 
    before you use your Charm ability on the worker.  If you are too close 
    you will die when you make the worker activate the lever bomb.  Jump 
    through the broken window and ride the elevator to your left.  Walk over 
    the checkpoint using your Mist ability so the Industrial Guard doesn't 
    detect you.
    
    80%
    Stealth kill the Industrial Guard and continue forward to a section 
    filled with mist and Industrial Guards and some Glyph Guards.  It is 
    possible to stealth kill every one but it isn't a big deal if you can't.  
    When all of them are dead, run up the stairs, use the Lore Coffer, and 
    flip the switch to open the door directly below you.  Jump down and go 
    into the room to activate the next checkpoint.
    
    85%
    Use your Charm ability on the worker through the window and make her 
    activate the switch.  As Kain, go across the conveyer belt and pull the 
    next switch to open the other conveyer belt to go across.  Again, use 
    your Charm ability (if you think doing this is boring you should try 
    typing it over and over again) on the worker through the window to 
    activate the lever that will open a conveyer belt and stop another.  As 
    Kain, go back and you'll find a conveyer belt along the way that will 
    bring you to the room where the workers are that you just charmed.  Kill 
    the Industrial Guard and then on the control panels to your left flip 
    all 3 switches to activate the small train.  Follow the track back out 
    to the main room and into another room that was opened up.  Jump on the 
    lift and use the lever to ride it up.  Use the wheel on your left to 
    start up some machinery, then go around the corner and up some stairs to 
    an Industrial Guard.  Here, there will be a track that goes around in a 
    loop and several blockades that you are able to push.  Push the one near 
    the flame onto the track and then push the other one off the track.  
    Jump on the control station to your left and use the lever to start the 
    train and, hopefully, make it explode.  Go through the hole in the wall 
    to the check point.
    
    90%
    Use the mist to your advantage and try to stealth kill the Industrial 
    Guard before the Glyph Guard finds you.  Kill them both and then use 
    your Jump ability to make it across the gap to your right.  Continue 
    down the tunnel, killing the Industrial Guard along the way, until you 
    come to an office with a Lore Coffer in the back left corner.  Go out 
    and take a left down to the checkpoint.
    
    BOSS: Sebastian (95%)
    Normal Strategy:
    This strategy is the way the designers intended for you to beat 
    Sebastian, one of the harder bosses in the game.  If you are having 
    trouble with him then look down to the Easy Strategy.  
    
    Use Kain's throwing technique, something I never take advantage of, to 
    harm him.  Advance on him and pick him up, then look for the steam 
    coming out and try to throw him so the steam will be upon him when he 
    stands up.  If you do it right he will take some damage and then he'll 
    yell "It burns!" and advance on you with a red aura (unblockable) move.  
    Quickly dodge it to the left or right and continue throwing him into the 
    steam until he starts running around the room.  The middle will start 
    releasing energy so quickly get on the side and avoid the steam coming 
    out of the pipes.  Try to always keep an eye on Sebastian and when he 
    hangs onto one of the 3 bars quickly position yourself so the purple 
    energy in the middle is between you and Sebastian.  If you do it right 
    he will jump at you and get caught in the beam and damage himself.  Do 
    this 3 times and he'll then try to destroy the Nexus Stone.  Jump up to 
    the platform and Sebastian will jump off.  Use your charm ability on the 
    worker through the window and make him turn the steam on by throwing the 
    lever to your right.  Sebastian will jump up and you'll have to grab him 
    by the next and throw him down into the steam at least twice for him to 
    finally die.  Kain will now acquire the Berserk ability, a more powerful 
    version of the Fury ability which also is activated in the same manner.
    
    Easy Strategy:
    As soon as you start the fight and Sebastian is standing in front of 
    you, don't touch a single button.  If you don't do anything, neither 
    will he and the steam will eventually kill him. (submitted by

    Kain gets some new duds!  Although, they are not as cool as his previous 
    ones.  Walk out of the tunnel and watch the cut scene.  Jump down and 
    kill the Glyph Captain and then use the Lore Coffer to the left of the 
    small waterfall.  Continue up this path and through a tunnel where you 
    can take advantage of the mist to stealth kill the thieves.  After they 
    are dead, run across the wooden bridge to the checkpoint.

    Kill the thief ahead and take a left, jumping up the ledges.  Follow the 
    tunnel out to a building by the waterfall.  To your left will be 2 
    thieves to dispose of, then walk up the stairs to the building and look 
    in your building to see a peasant that you can use your Charm ability 
    on.  Go up the stairs and use the valve to change the wheels and open 
    the gates.  Switch back to Kain and go up to your right where the gate 
    opened and a box will be next to it.  Push the box under the gate, go 
    back and Charm the human again and make him use the valve to start the 
    wheel but keep the gate open as well.  Go to your left and jump on the 
    passing blocks and ride it up to the upper level.  You can now walk 
    around and through the open gate to the checkpoint.

    Use your Jump ability to get from one rock to the next and then use your 
    Jump ability again to get to the Lore Coffer to your left.  Jump inside 
    the tower and go up the stairs and out the door.  Kill the Glyph Captain 
    in here and walk out the door on the opposite end into another tower.  
    Walk down to the bottom and activate the checkpoint.

    Before exiting through the double doors, flip the switch to your right 
    to open the gate.  Go up to the gate and it will open for you, with a 
    Glyph Captain activating the alarm to call 2 fire arrow thieves.  Kill 
    them both and go to the right, using the mist to your advantage, stealth 
    kill the Glyph Captain.  Go through the double doors he was by, but 
    first not the valve on the wall, you'll be coming back to it shortly.  
    Go all the way up the stairs and activate the glyph box.  Now jump down 
    to the bottom and when you see the glyph energy coming down the pipe be 
    sure to switch the valve so it doesn't activate the alarm, but instead 
    powers the lever.  This is a sort of preparation for the puzzles you 
    will encounter in this chapter.  Pull the lever and go through to the 
    checkpoint.

    Be careful in the tunnel as you can be hit by falling rocks rather 
    easily.  Continue forward to where a cargo transport is under siege by 
    some thieves.  Go forward some more and watch the cut scene.  Silly 
    woman... use your Jump ability to go over and kick her ass for the 
    inconvenience.  In the next part more rocks can fall and damage you.  
    You'll get out just in time and find a checkpoint ahead.

    Go to your left and kill all of the thugs that are attacking the cargo 
    transport.  Climb the ladders on the transport and use your Jump ability 
    to get to the left ledges where a Lore Coffer awaits.  Continue up the 
    ledges and around till you see a misty part where you can use your Jump 
    ability to get there.  Immediately change into your Mist form and 
    stealth kill the thieves.  Continue around the side of the mountain and 
    to the right will be an mine entrance.  Go through the tunnel and down 
    to the checkpoint.

    Walk into the next room and use your Mist ability to stealth kill the 
    thug and thief.  Go around all of the boxes to your left and continue 
    till you find another thief and an elevator to your left.  Kill the 
    thief and continue up the elevator.  Go out onto the road and up to the 
    thug.  Kill him and go up the hill to your right.  Go to the end and 
    look to your left through the bars to find a peasant.  Use your Charm 
    ability on him and use the lever to open the door to a jail cell.  Go 
    back a little and use your Charm ability on the prisoner to go up the 
    stairs and open the door and then use the wheel to lower the ladder for 
    you.  Switch back to Kain and climb up the ladder to the bridge.  Go to 
    your left and use the lever to open the steel door.  Quickly run across 
    the bridge and through to the prison cell before the door closes.  Go 
    down the stairs, jump over the debris to your left, and use the switch 
    to open the next door.  At the end of this tunnel you'll come upon a 
    checkpoint.

    Jump down to the spooky road and take a left to watch the cut scene with 
    the first demons.  The little spiders aren't that bad but the bigger 
    ones are pure hell.  These are the first ones you will encounter so go 
    up to it and (if you have a full rage bar I'd use berserk) kill it.  You 
    will notice that it's red aura (unblockable) attack isn't at all a red 
    aura attack but green poison that comes with no warning.  Lucky for you 
    the demons have a lot of blood; the designers could have been really 
    mean and decided demons don't have any blood.  Continue down to another 
    deserted cargo transport and a Lore Coffer.  Keep going forward to find 
    2 Lesser Demons and a Weapon Box (haven't seen one of these in awhile).  
    Unless you want a really tough time with Lesser Demons, I suggest you 
    power up one of the Glyph Captain's axes.  Continue forward in this area 
    and you'll find an open gate with a checkpoint.
    
    55%
    Kill the 2 Lesser Demons that are feasting on the Glyph Captains and 
    continue along the road until you come to yet another Lesser Demon.  
    Kill him and go watch a Glyph Captain and Lesser Demon duke it out.  
    Once the Glyph Captain dies go finish off the Lesser Demon.  Go to the 
    left of the large door and into the burning tower.  Get up to the top 
    using a combination of normal jumps and Jump ability.  Exit out through 
    the door and go across the bridge to the next tower.  Go all the way 
    down and exit out through the double doors.  Run ahead and to the left 
    to activate the checkpoint.
    
    60%
    Kill the Lesser Demon right in front of you and then go to the left to 
    the track intersection and use the valve to change the direction of the 
    train that will be coming shortly.  Go around the house to the right and 
    up the hill and jump on the roof of the house.  Use your Jump ability to 
    get over to where the windmill is, use the Lore Coffer and the valve to 
    change the direction of the train again.  Now go back to the house and 
    look through the window to find a peasant.  Use your Charm ability to 
    take control of him and pull the lever to activate the train.  If all 
    goes well, the train should go through to the other side and you'll ride 
    it to the next section.  Walk ahead to the next checkpoint.
    
    65%
    Go to your left by the blockaded door to find a control station with 3 
    levers.  In the following order pull the levers: left, middle, right, 
    middle.  If done correctly a piece of rock should be on the conveyer 
    belt.  Go around to where the glyph box is but first turn the valve so 
    it powers the door, not the conveyer belt.  Activate the glyph box and 
    then go through the open door.  On the wall will be another valve, 
    switch it and the conveyer will start up.  Now go over to a switch that 
    deactivates the machine to the right which will smash the rock as it 
    comes through.  Do not activate it until the rock is close to you 
    because it is on a timer and will restart the machine automatically.  If 
    done correctly, the rock should appear at the other side.  If not, 
    you'll have to go back to the crane and do it again.  In this part there 
    will also be a control station with 3 levers.  You want to flip them in 
    the following order: left, middle, right, middle.  This will crush the 
    glyph battery and let you proceed where the door used to be.  Watch the 
    cut scene and activate the checkpoint.

    Continue forward where you'll encounter a Lesser Demon right before the 
    hill.  Kill him and continue up the hill and to the left where you'll 
    find a Weapon Box.  Go to the right (watch out for the pool of water, 
    it's hard to see) and kill the other Lesser Demon before continuing up 
    the hill and onto the ledges.  Use your Jump ability to get across to 
    the other ledge, where you'll find 2 peasants by the fire.  Go to the 
    right up a short tunnel to a higher ledge where you can use your Jump 
    ability to get to the checkpoint on the other side.
    
    85%
    Go around the waterfall and kill the Lesser Demon by the gate.  Use the 
    wheel to open it (remember you must hold it all the way) and run through 
    to the next area.  Right away you'll encounter 2 Lesser Demons to 
    dispose of.  Go to the right and onto the wooden platform where a valve 
    and a ladder await you.  Take note of the valve but don't do anything 
    with it because it will reset anyways.  Climb up the 2 ladders and take 
    not of another valve, again it will reset if you do anything to it.  Use 
    your Jump ability to get to the other building where, surprise, you'll 
    find yet another valve that will reset if you do anything to it.  Go all 
    the way down the stairs and you'll find a peasant in a cell with a glyph 
    box.  If you haven't guessed it already, you have to Charm the peasant 
    to activate the glyph box, then as Kain, go back and flip each valve as 
    the glyph magic reaches it.  You can't do it too soon or the valve will 
    reset and the magic won't be directed where you want.  If you do it 
    correctly with all 3 valves, it will power a lever to deactivate the 
    ward gate outside.  Continue forward to see a Lesser Demon kill a Glyph 
    Captain, then finish it off.  Keep following the path until you come to 
    a checkpoint by a windmill.

    Kill the Lesser Demon right in front of you and then use the Lore Coffer 
    by the well before going up to the door of the Seer and acquiring the 
    Telekinesis ability, the *only* ability you will get without killing a 
    boss.  After the cut scene use your Telekinesis ability to activate the 
    symbol above the door.  It works just like the Charm ability, only on 
    objects.  Go forward and enter the center complex and follow the pathway 
    down where you'll watch another cut scene at the entrance of the device.

    By far, my favorite chapter in the entire game.  This place is like 
    "House on Haunted Hill" on ecstasy.  Anyways, follow the path to the 
    edge of a cliff and use your Jump ability to get to the entrance of the 
    main building.  Use your Telekinesis skill on the symbol above the large 
    doors to open them and enter the prison to watch a cut scene.  Is it 
    just me or did that whole speech sound like propaganda?  Of course, 
    ignore his orders and go up the stairs and use your Jump ability to get 
    to the large chair that the Prison Guardian was on a moment ago.  Then 
    turn right and, again, use your Jump ability to get to the next floor.  
    Here, turn left and then go to the little piece that juts out and use 
    your Jump ability to get to the other side.  Here, you should climb up 
    the ladder to the 3rd floor and use your Jump ability to get to the 
    doorway with blue torches on either side.  Walk over the checkpoint in 
    this next room.
    
    5%
    Jump down the hole and you'll encounter Spider Demons, these guys are 
    great because they do not have either a yellow aura or red aura attack.  
    They also can't be thrown but I never use that move anyways.  Kill both 
    of them and exit through the newly opened door.  Kill the next Spider 
    Demon and go to the left corner where a lever will raise the cell, 
    revealing a hole to jump down, as well as raise the Spider Demon cages.  
    Pick up the weapon to your left and chop up the Spider Demons then jump 
    down the hole.  You'll now be in a large room with a display of the 
    planets and moons in the center with a lever on it.  Go to the other 
    side where a weapon and Lore Coffer await, as well as a cut scene.  
    Climb out of the hole and activate the checkpoint.

    Exit outside and use your Jump ability to get to the other building.  
    Use your Telekinesis ability on the symbol above the door to open it and 
    proceed through.  Kill the 2 Demon Spiders and, again, use your 
    Telekinesis ability on the symbol to open the door.  Use your Jump 
    ability to get across and, yet again, use your Telekinesis ability on 
    the symbol to open the door.  Sigh, again kill the 2 Spider Demons and 
    use your Telekinesis ability on the symbol to proceed.  Walk across the 
    bridge and watch the cut scene.  This will be your first fight with the 
    Prison Guardian.  After a couple of hits he will go invisible but his 
    eyes will remain, making him an easy target still.  After you kill him 
    you *cannot* take his weapon (boo!).  Proceed down the stairs to where 
    you were before they teleported you.  Use the Lore Coffer and then the 
    switch on the center display to create a door for you to walk through 
    and a checkpoint.
    
    20%
    Walk down the stairs to encounter your first inmate, they will not harm 
    you but will act as subjects for your Charm ability later.  For now, use 
    your Telekinesis skill on the right symbol to raise parts of the stairs 
    so you can proceed.  At the top watch the cut scene and be welcomed to 
    This-Doesn't-Make-Any-Sense Land.  Continue forward to the checkpoint 
    and try not to rationalize this place.
    
    25%
    Jump to the center and flip the switch to start platforms rotating 
    around the display.  Your goal is to get to the top where a door will 
    teleport you out of this place.  Jump back to the ring and up to the 
    section in front of you.  Go forward a little to a piece that sticks out 
    to the right and a Prison Wraith will appear and attack you.  Kill it 
    (also interesting that they have blood) and then use your Jump ability 
    to get to the next platform in front of you.  Another Prison Wraith will 
    appear, hindering your progress.  Kill it and use your Jump ability to 
    get to the next section.  Go to the end of this platform and look a 
    little to the right; that is the platform you need to get on, you'll 
    just barely make it with your Jump ability and will most likely land on 
    the checkpoint.
    
    30%
    Here you'll encounter 2 Prison Wraiths so I suggest using your Berserk 
    ability just to cut back on time.  After they are dead, use your Jump 
    ability to get to the next platform, just barely making it.  Here you 
    will find a Lore Coffer and a sword; by now your other one has probably 
    been shattered.  Also, a Prison Wraith will appear at the next platform.  
    Use your Jump ability and try to aim it so you hit it and land at the 
    same time.  After you kill that one another will appear to kill.  Use 
    your Jump ability to get to the next platform, where 2 Prison Wraiths 
    and the darth maul weapon awaits you.  Kill them and at the end of this 
    platform look to your left and use your Jump ability to get to the door.  
    After the cut scene walk over the checkpoint.

    Walk ahead a little and the prison cells will drop and Spider Demons 
    will come out.  Kill all of them and go into the fallen cells to find a 
    Lore Coffer.  Jump on top of the cells and use your Jump ability to get 
    to the 2nd floor to your left.  Use the lever by the prisoner to lower 
    another group of cells.  Jump on top of these then turn to your left and 
    jump on top of the next group of cells.  Jump over to the 3rd floor 
    where a weapon awaits you if you need it.  Look inside the middle cell 
    and use your Charm ability to take control of the prisoner.  Use... him? 
    her? it to pull the lever and allow Kain to go through to the 
    checkpoint.

    Continue to the next room where several Spider Demons are inside cages 
    and a symbol is above one of them.  Sigh, I know what will happen but 
    you still have to do it.  Use your Telekinesis skill on the symbol and a 
    group of cells will be lowered, as well as the Spider Demons released.  
    Kill them all and go into the one Spider Demon cell that has a ladder 
    for you to climb.  Here you can open multiple cells, one of which 
    contains the darth maul weapon and another (2nd from the left) contains 
    a ladder to climb up.  Use your Charm ability on the prisoner outside to 
    use the lever so you may proceed.  Turn left and go down to the end 
    where you can use your Jump ability to get over to the other side.  In 
    the first cell will be a Weapon Box for you to use.  Continue to the 
    other side where you can use your Charm ability on the prisoner to raise 
    the gate with the lever. Climb up the ladder and exit where you'll find 
    a lever in the center.  Use it to raise the group of cells so you can 
    use your Jump ability to get over to the other side where the checkpoint 
    awaits.

    (Not even halfway there, heh)Go through to the next area and to the left 
    up the stairs and onto the middle of the bridge.  Use your Jump ability 
    to get to the platform where a Lore Coffer awaits you.  Then, go over to 
    the opposite side where there is a gate and a prisoner that you can use 
    your Charm ability on to open the gates.  Kill both of the Prison 
    Guardians and the gate will open for you to proceed.  Use your 
    Telekinesis ability on the symbol above the door for it to open, 
    revealing the next checkpoint.

    Walk forward and kill the Prison Guardian, then use your Telekinesis 
    ability on the symbol on the other side of the river.  This will rewind 
    time, so to speak, so the bridge is created again.  Also, it will close 
    the door.  Go across the bridge and use the lever to your right to move 
    the group of cells.  Go across the bridge again and use your Telekinesis 
    ability again on the symbol to open the door, but not destroy the 
    bridge.  Go through the doors and activate the checkpoint.

    Walk forward a little and watch the cut scene with Magnus.  Needless to 
    say, he is a little... ok he is very crazy.  Run away from Magnus, you 
    can't kill him.  Keep running through until you get to watch another cut 
    scene.  Well that's the last we'll see of Magnus... uh huh.  Use your 
    Jump ability to go over towards the Lore Coffer and then go down that 
    hall to approach another Prison Guardian.  Kill him and then go down to 
    activate a Weapon Box, then continue through the newly opened gate to 
    watch another cut scene.  Turn to your right to activate a checkpoint.

    Go down this hall and into a room to find a Lore Coffer.  Do not 
    activate it yet though, a Prison Guardian will come, after you kill him 
    another will appear.  After you kill this one, you may use the Lore 
    Coffer and continue through the next hallway.  Keep going until you come 
    to a room with 3 other ways to go.  Turn right and go down that hallway 
    to find Magnus flipping out.  Use your Charm ability on the prisoner 
    near Magnus and make him pull the lever on the right wall.  As Kain, go 
    back to the room with the 3 other hallways and take the right hallway 
    where you'll find another checkpoint.

    Follow the path till you come to a middle of the bridge and Magnus will

    crosses the bridge to get rid of him.  Maybe now he'll finally die... 
    walk ahead to the next checkpoint.

    Continue down this path filled with prisoners (with a Lore Coffer along 
    the way) until you come to a Prison Guardian.  Kill him and proceed to a 
    gigantic room with a center platform.  Use your Jump ability to get over 
    to it and then turn around and use your Telekinesis ability on the 
    symbol above.  Go back across the bridge and use the lever to rotate the 
    bridge to the right.  Use your Jump ability to get back to the center 
    platform and go across the bridge.  Kill the Prison Guardian that shows 
    up and then turn around to see another symbol that you have to use your 
    Telekinesis ability on.  Go back to the center platform and then use 
    your Jump ability to get to the lever that moves the bridge.  Use this 
    lever twice and then go across it to an empty room.  On the wall you'll 
    see a lever which will lower the prison cell that houses the Builder.  
    Go over to it and watch the cut scene.  Afterwards, use the switch on 
    the center display and watch the cut scene.  Afterwards, walk towards 
    the blue flame doors and over the checkpoint.

    Kill the 2 Prison Guardians that appear when you try to approach the 
    doors and then proceed through the doors.  Continue down the path and 
    there will be a darth maul weapon on the floor right before a gate 
    closes on you.  Pull the lever on the left wall to raise it and proceed.  
    The screen will start going black but just keep walking and then Magnus 
    will appear.  Again, you can't harm him so just run away and pull the 
    lever to make the bridge.  Go to the other side and pull the lever so it 
    falls and Magnus drops into some water again.  We should know by now 
    that water just pisses Magnus off, oh well.  Go through the doors and 
    follow the path to the next checkpoint.

    Go forward and you'll come to  a series of pillars that gates will come 
    crashing down if you don't go the right way.  Simply find the open path 
    and follow it until the gates on all 4 sides come down and Magnus 
    appears.  Use your Telekinesis ability on the symbol to raise the gates 
    and continue.  Magnus will do this again but this time if you don't use 
    your Telekinesis ability fast enough on the symbol you'll be killed by 
    the approaching fire.  Now just follow the path to the last checkpoint 
    in this chapter.
    
    BOSS: Magnus (95%)
    Go forward to an area with huge statues of the Prison Guardians.  Magnus 
    will appear and jump on the center platform.  Simply use your 
    Telekinesis skill to push him off and he'll start to charge up his 
    Immolate ability.  Get behind one of the statues and he'll blow it up 
    instead of you.  Continue to do this for 3 of the statues and he'll run 
    away after you knock him off again. Jump down to the next area and 
    notice the red scythes (Prison Guardian weapon) that are pointed like 
    they want to hurt someone.  Get near one and then use your Telekinesis 
    ability on Magnus and he'll charge you.  When he gets near you dodge out 
    of the way and he'll hit the scythe instead.  Do this for all 4 statues 
    with scythes.  After this is done jump on the debris and use your 
    Telekinesis ability on all 4 of the green symbols.  This will recreate 
    the statue, which just happens to be of Moebius the Time streamer.  Most 
    of the statue is on the raised platform, however, his cane is not.  Get 
    in front of the cane as you did with the scythes and make Magnus charge 
    at you.  Dodge out of the way and he'll break off the cane.  Now simply 
    make him charge at you while in front of the raised platform with the 
    statue on it and dodge out of the way and Magnus will be finished.  
    You'll gain the ability of Immolate, the last ability and the coolest 
    attack because it instantly kills (except the Sarafan Lord).  END

    Go down the tunnel and you'll come to the first checkpoint.  Continue

    Hylden:  They do not have a red aura (unblockable) attack, which is very 
    rare from this point on in the game.  They may block a lot of your 
    attacks but they are great for filling up your rage bar to use Immolate 
    against a Lesser Demon or Hylden Warrior.  After he is dead use the

    spear-like things on the sides sometimes are traps and hit you.  The way 
    you can tell this is if they are swaying back and forth... or you could 
    just wait for me to tell you.  There will be one on the left as you go 
    down this tunnel so stick to the right.  Kill the Hylden as it comes out 
    of the left tunnel and then go through and use your Jump ability to get 
    over to the other side.  Jump down in the next area and use the Lore 
    Coffer and use both control panels.  A Hylden will come out of the left 
    one to kill.  Go into the left room and use your Telekinesis ability on 
    the symbol on the left part of the upper platform to lower the lift.  
    Get on the lift and ride it up.  In the next room use your Jump ability 
    to go over to the glyph box and then return to the original hallway 
    where you can now use the control panel to proceed.  Continue through 
    the next room and take the left tunnel where you can use your 
    Telekinesis ability on the symbol to your left and then return to the 
    hall.  Watch out for a trap on the right side of this hallway and then 
    use your Mist ability to stealth kill the Hylden.  Look through the 
    window and use your Telekinesis ability on the symbol to the right to 
    release the slave.  Go back to the side tunnel where you used the first 
    symbol and use your Charm ability on the slave.  As the slave, go over 
    to the glyph box on the left then switch back to Kain.  You can now 
    proceed through the door to the next checkpoint.

    Go down the hall and watch the cut scene where the Hylden sends the 
    Lesser Demon out to kill you.  Kill the Lesser Demon (again, Immolate 
    works wonders on these bastards) and the Hylden will run away, allowing 
    you to proceed through the passage.  Kill the Hylden in the next room 
    and then jump down into the main room where a Lesser Demon awaits.  Kill 
    it and use the glyph box on the back wall by the boilers to activate a 
    control panel back up where you killed the Hylden (before going up the 
    ramp be sure to use the Lore Coffer to your right).  Use your Charm 
    ability to take control of the slave and use him to activate the control 
    panel.  As Kain, jump onto the now activated pumps over to the other 
    side where another Lore Coffer awaits.  Jump down to the tunnel and go 
    down it to the next checkpoint.

    Go down and you'll encounter your first Hylden Warrior, one of the most 
    dangerous enemies because he has variations of his red aura 
    (unblockable) and yellow aura attacks which make it very hard to time 
    dodges.  Kill him and then dispose of the regular Hylden.  Once they are 
    both dead use your Jump ability to get to the other side where a closed 
    door awaits.  Turn around and use your Telekinesis ability on the symbol 
    which will lower the water level.  Jump down, use the glyph box, and 
    then climb back up and, again, use your Jump ability to get over to the 
    door.  Use the control panel to open it and watch out for the trap on 
    the left side of the hallway.  Proceed down with caution and enter the 
    next room on the left.  Jump down and kill the Hylden Warrior, then use 
    the control panel.  Before going back up you might want to take the 
    darth maul weapon at the end.  Back up on the walkway, use the control 
    panel to kill the Hylden and proceed.  In this next area use your Mist 
    ability to stealth kill the Hylden and Hylden Warrior then continue down 
    the tunnel.  Use your Charm ability on the slave and make him go around 
    the right corner where he can use the control panel.  Switch back to 
    Kain and jump out the window to the right.  Use the Lore Coffer then go 
    to the other end of the walkway and jump on the platform to continue.  
    Kill the Hylden Warrior then proceed down to the right to the next 
    checkpoint.

    Go down the tunnel, avoiding the trap on the right, and kill the Hylden 
    Warrior that awaits you.  After he is dead, look to the right and use 
    your Telekinesis ability on the symbol and then use your Charm ability 
    on the slave below.  Walk him over to the right catwalk and release him 
    by the boxes.  As Kain, use your Telekinesis ability again on the symbol 
    and, again, take control of the slave with your Charm ability.  The 
    slave can now reach the control panel to let Kain proceed to the next 
    checkpoint.

    Walk forward and kill the Lesser Demon, which will cause the Hylden to 
    attack you.  Kill the Hylden and proceed to the next room.  Use your 
    Jump ability to get to the raised platform with the glyph box.  Use the 
    glyph box and then jump down and kill the Hylden.  You might want to 
    block to fill up your rage bar because you'll be fighting that 
    imprisoned Lesser Demon soon.  Go over to the pool of water and use your 
    Jump ability to get to the platform with the control panel on it.  To 
    the left is a Lore Coffer you can use if you use your Jump ability 
    again.  Use the control panel and then jump down and pull the battery 
    away from the wall to lower all of the prison force fields. Climb back 
    up the ladder and kill the Lesser Demon (hopefully with your Immolate 
    ability).  Go into the right passage next to where the Lesser Demon was 
    imprisoned and out into a large chamber.  Kill the Hylden that 
    approaches you and use the control panel at the end to lower the yellow 
    force field.  Return to the glyph box and continue through the now clear 
    path into some sort of sleeping or incubation chamber.  Jump up and then 
    over to the next area and through this passage to another chamber that 
    holds a Lore Coffer.  Continue down and out into another central 
    chamber.  Kill the Hylden that is by the left entryway and go into it 
    where you'll find a checkpoint.
    
    80%
    Use your Jump ability to get over to the large window where you can 
    access a Lore Coffer.  Jump down to where the conveyer belt is and on 
    your right you'll see a doorway which leads to a Hylden Warrior.  Kill 
    him and jump down to the next area.  Proceed through a tunnel with 
    boiling water all around you in the walls.  Watch the cut scene and then 
    quickly use your Charm ability on the slave and use him to open the door 
    so Kain can escape the flooding water and kill the Hylden.  Jump down to 
    grab the axe in the next area and then up to a small room with a control 
    panel which turns out to be an elevator.  You are now in the central 
    chamber which holds the Mass.  Kill the Hylden Warrior that advanced on 
    you to the right and then go around to the control panel for you to get 
    on the lift.  Ride the lift up and proceed to the checkpoint.
    
    90%
    Go forward a little and kill the Lesser Demon and then use your 
    Telekinesis ability on the symbol to lower the ward gate.  Continue 
    around and use the control panel to call the lift down so you can go up 
    another level.  Proceed and kill the 2 Hylden you encounter along the 
    way.  Again, use the control panel and ride the lift up another level.  
    Kill the Hylden Warrior and use your Jump ability to get to the other 
    section of this level.  Use the control panel at the end to ride the 
    lift up to the last level.  Here, use the control panel at the middle to 
    extend a bridge to the Mass and watch the rather long cut scene.  END

    Woot!  Kain gets another change of clothes, and this time they kick ass!  
    Anyways, walk forward and use your Mist ability as soon as you can to 
    avoid getting slapped around by the Glyph Captains.  Stealth kill all 3 
    of them and be careful not to walk into the search lights as they seem 
    to see around your mist ability and alert the guards.  Go up to the gate 
    and use your Charm ability on the peasant to open the gate.  Switch back 
    to Kain and take a right though the door to a room with the checkpoint.

    Walk outside and watch the cut scene.  For some odd reason you can't use 
    your Charm ability on him, he must be strong-minded or something... 
    right.  Go to the little market to your right where some woman is 
    complaining about prices.  Continue ahead to a gate where there is a 
    wheel, but first go left down a small alley where you can use a Lore 
    Coffer.  Go back and use the wheel to open the gate and proceed.  On the 
    docks, take a right and kill the Glyph Knight walking up the stairs.  
    Continue and dispose of the 2 Glyph Captains.  Remember to dodge when 
    they use their red aura attack.  After they are both dead go back a 
    little and to the left inside a building with a glyph box and some 
    switches.  This is exactly like that puzzle in Chapter 7.  Pull the 
    switch to activate the glyph magic then pull the switch to the left as 
    it comes through to connect it.  Quickly run up the stairs to the second 
    level and do the same with this switch.  Repeat this process for the 
    third floor and then go to the right where you can activate the lever to 
    turn on the lighthouse, thus letting the ship sail and clearing a path.  
    Go back to where you killed the 2 Glyph Captains and use your Jump 
    ability to get to the other side of the docks where a Lore Coffer 
    awaits, as well as two very loud people that reveal the password to 
    Kain.  Climb up the ladder to a small shack on your left to find another 
    Lore Coffer and then jump down to continue up the stairs where you have 
    to use a wheel to open the gate.  Continue forward to the Charm-immune 
    guy and Kain will tell him the password to go through.  To the right is 
    yet another Lore Coffer, and to the left is a checkpoint.

    Use the wheel to open the gate and proceed.  Walk down the stairs to the 
    left and on the boxes, *not* over the boxes because there is a water on 
    the other side.  Turn around and you'll see a symbol to use your 
    Telekinesis ability on.  This will bring power to another lighthouse, 
    again allowing the ship to leave and Kain to proceed.  Use your Jump 
    ability to get to the other side.  Don't bother with using your Mist 
    ability because you'll have to kill a Glyph Knight.  After he is dead go 
    over the bridge and climb the ladder to the left and open the door to 
    the building.  As you walk in look down to see some holes in the section 
    of the floor you are standing on.  Drag the box to your left back to 
    where this hollowed section is and it will fall through.  Jump down and 
    continue pushing the box to the other end of the hallway to the square 
    on the floor which will unlock the door.  Once outside walk up the 
    stairs to your right and kill the Glyph Captain.  Follow the path around 
    the docks (there really is only 1 way to go), using the Weapon Box on 
    the way, and you'll come to a cut scene with a peasant giving Kain some 
    valuable information.  Go through the door behind him to the next 
    checkpoint.

    Go to your right and climb up the ladder to the small shack to access a 
    Lore Coffer.  Jump down and kill the Glyph Knight, beware of the 
    crossbow-wielding women that shoot you if you get within range.  Once he 
    is dead, run across, dodging the fire arrows, to the other side and 
    inside a warehouse.  Go to your left and kill the Glyph Captain and 
    Glyph Guard.  Go up the stairs and use the Lore Coffer then jump back 
    down to where the glyph box is.  Use the valve to open the gate on your 
    left and here you should pull the switch to deactivate the lighthouse.  
    Use the valve to open the right gate and use the wheel to rotate the 
    lighthouse.  Yet again use the valve to re-open the left side and now 
    use the switch turn on the lighthouse.  This will cause a ship to dock 
    near you and the bridge to lower.  Exit out and go across the newly-
    opened bridge (beware the thieves guarding it) to the next checkpoint.

    Here will be a battle with another 2 Glyph Knights, nothing special 
    about them as far as I know, although the game sure hypes them up with 
    an entrance.  After both are dead the door to the left will open, 
    allowing you to proceed to fight another Glyph Knight and a normal Guard 
    (haven't seen these guys in awhile).  After they are dead go to the 
    right where you'll see a crate fall on 2 people (and you thought this 
    game lacked humor).  Go into the next building to find some kind of 
    storage for slaves.  Go up the stairs around to 3 levers.  The correct 
    order to pull them in is: middle, right, middle, left, left, middle, 
    right.  This will cause it to drop and a Lesser Demon to be let loose 
    upon the world.  Exit out of the building and follow where the Lesser 
    Demon fled through some newly-opened gates where you'll see a cut scene.  
    Go around the corner and you'll find the Lesser Demon you unleashed.  If 
    you can, use Immolate on it for a quick kill, also beware the thieves 
    that use their fire arrows if you get within range.  Kill them too and 
    walk up to the gate.  Using the wheel will cause the Guard on the other 
    side to close it so you'll have to use your Charm ability on the peasant 
    behind him to go around to a control panel with 2 levers.  Use the right 
    one, then the left, and switch back to Kain.  You can now use the wheel 
    without interference ;)  Continue down the path to the next checkpoint.

    Go down to the 2 Glyph Knights and dispose of both of them.  Go down to 
    the end and to the right where you'll encounter some more Glyph Knights.

    Coffer in this room and then walk out the door to find another 
    checkpoint. ;p

    Uh huh, 20% of the level in 4 Glyph Knights...  Turn right and kill this 
    Glyph Knight, be warned that a ship will come down the river and hit you 
    with fire arrows periodically.  My advice is to lay off attacking and 
    jump around to avoid the arrows and then continue.  Once he is dead go 
    to the end where there is a break in the fence and then use you Jump 
    ability to get to the other side of the river.  Here you will have to 
    kill 2 more Glyph Knights while constantly under attack from the passing 
    ships.  This gets very annoying very fast but you'll get through it... 
    or you won't and you'll return the game after your 100th death in this 
    section and be institutionalized for screaming "what kind of ship has 
    fire arrows!?"  Anyways, go to the end of this section and turn right 
    find an old dock that you can use your Jump ability to get to the other 
    side.  Here, another Glyph Knight awaits as well as those every-so-
    popular ships.  After he is dead use your Jump ability on the platform 
    at the other end to get to the other side.  Kill yet another Glyph 
    Knight (got to hand it to the designers of this level for their stroke 
    of genius and creativity *end sarcasm*) and then go to the other end 
    where you'll (yep, you guessed it) use your Jump ability to get to the 
    other side where ANOTHER Glyph Knight awaits.  Do you hate this level 
    yet?  I know I do for the 3rd time beating this game.  When he is dead 
    go through the door to the checkpoint, congratulations for getting 
    passed the most annoying part in this game.

    You will find yourself in a large tavern.  Go to your left and up a set 
    of stairs to the 2nd floor.  Take a right and use the Lore Coffer, then 
    go to the other side of the 2nd floor where you can open a door to 
    another room.  Jump down and open the door at the ground level to find 
    yourself outside again.  Take a left and kill both Glyph Knights.  
    Continue forward and climb up the ladder to the large steel platform.  
    Turn to your right to see a place you can use your Jump ability to land 
    on with a door on the other side.  You cannot open the door, however, 
    you can jump to the left inside a warehouse.  Use the Lore Coffer in 
    this room and then use the elevator to find the next checkpoint.

    Walk forward a little until you find an enclosed peasant with some 
    controls in front of him.  Use your Charm ability and take control of 
    him, then pull the middle lever.  At this point something very strange 
    happens in my copy of the game and I believe it happens in mostly 
    everyone elses.  The camera will change to the steel platform and show 
    Kain on it (you aren't really there, by the way) and you'll hear a bunch 
    of noises, then eventually the camera will show the Hylden Pet running 
    away.  Oh well...  Take control of the peasant again and pull the middle 
    lever to lower the cage.  Go over into the cage and take control of the 
    peasant to pull the middle lever for the last time.  END

    After the cut scene jump over the end of the ship onto the ramp up to 
    the Hylden City.  Walk forward a little bit and watch the cut scene with 
    Kain and the Sarafan Lord.  Afterwards, run up to the main gate and take 
    a left up a ramp to the roof of the city entrance.  You'll encounter a 
    Hylden on your way up.  Remember that normal Hylden are the best things 
    in this level because they do not have a single red aura (unblockable) 
    attack which means you can fill up on your rage bar for something hard 
    like a Hylden Warrior or Lesser Demon.  It might be a good idea to get 
    on even ground when fighting this Hylden or your attacks will most 
    likely miss.  Up on the roof continue towards the right side where 
    you'll see a green glow.  Jump down the pit and look in the window at 
    the 2 Hylden by the caged Hylden Pet.  (By the way, you can find a Darth 
    Maul weapon behind the crate in this pit)  Use your Telekinesis ability 
    on the symbol above the Hylden Pet's cage to release it.  Go back around 
    to the main entrance and enter the building.  In the upper left corner 
    you'll find a Lore Coffer and on the right side you'll find a control 
    panel to open the door to the elevator.  Enter it and watch the cut 
    scene.  Exit out the other side and walk over the checkpoint.

    Just to let you know this is one of the longest chapters in the game.  
    Use the Lore Coffer behind the crate on your left and then walk out to 
    the main part of the city to watch a cut scene.  The Hylden Pet will 
    come out and start killing the humans.  Note that it is impossible to 
    kill the Hylden Pet.  The only thing you can do is run away from it.  
    Run to the left and up a ramp to a checkpoint in front of a door.

    Run through the door quickly to get away from the Hylden Pet.  Run into 
    the next room and use your Mist ability in order to stealth kill both 
    Hylden in this room.  Continue through the only door that will fully 
    open and go around the catwalk to find a Hylden Warrior.  Kill him and 
    go down the ramp to 2 control panels.  Use both of them and the left one 
    will open a passage through the wall for Kain to continue.  A normal 
    Hylden and a Hylden Warrior will come at you as soon as you enter.  
    Dispose of them and go around where you'll find a Lore Coffer and 
    another Darth Maul weapon if you need it.  Continue forward and kill the 
    Hylden Warrior that pops out around the corner.  Go up the ramp and 
    around to find another Hylden and Hylden Warrior.  After they are both 
    dead go through the door on your left to find yourself back in the main 
    part of the city.  Jump down and then quickly try to get on the large 
    rock ahead by the broken catwalk because the Hylden Pet will come to pay 
    you a visit.  Jump up on the catwalk and follow it around to another 
    building where you'll find a checkpoint at the end of a hallway.

    Run through the door ahead and jump down to the right where you see a 
    glyph battery.  Push it forward once so it is by a part of the wall that 
    is lighter than the rest.  Go around and up the ramp to your left into a 
    building.  Use your Charm ability and possess the worker in the next 
    room.  Use the control panel and a Hylden Pet will be released.  As 
    Kain, go into the next room and press the lever to deactivate the laser.  
    Now you must go up next to the window in order to taunt the Hylden Pet 
    to come over by where the laser is.  Once he is in position, use the 
    control panel to activate the laser and it will kill the Hylden Pet, as 
    well as blow apart the wall for Kain to enter.  Jump through and to your 
    immediate right will be a Lore Coffer.  At the other side of the room 
    you'll see some crates.  Jump over them and activate the control panels 
    to blow up the glyph battery you set next to the wall and open it for 
    you.  Go back outside and go through the hole in the wall to come to a 
    water puzzle.  Use your Charm ability to take control of the worker a 
    little to your left and use him to turn lower the water level.  Now as 
    Kain, jump down and you'll find a crate that can run along a little 
    track.  Push it down this track exactly 6 times to find it directly 
    below a broken part in the railing.  Jump back up to the platform and 
    make the worker raise the water level again.  Watch the crate rise and 
    then use your Jump ability to get on the crate.  You will have to be 
    very close to the edge and you will barely be able to make the jump.  
    Once on the crate jump up onto the platform and use the control panel to 
    your right.  Jump back down and go around to where the platforms are 
    still running, yet the water has been lowered.  Jump on one of the 
    platforms as it raises and then jump off at the top.  Go to the other 
    end of this path to find a hole where you can jump down to a ramp.  Go 
    up the ramp and around until you come to a large room filled with water.  
    This is maybe the most difficult puzzle to describe what to do but I'll 
    try my best.
    
    (Note: This is still at 15% progress but is separated for easier 
    reference)
    Go to the right and kill the Spider Demons that come out of the hole.  
    Now go through to door into a room with a valve on the right.  Use it to 
    lower the water level.  Do not ever use this again until the water level 
    is completely down or completely up.  Doing so will sometimes result in 
    a bug where the water level will permanently stay in-between the two.  
    Jump down into the first section of this cavern and you'll find a crate 
    directly ahead of you.  This one can stay where it is, go to your right, 
    through a broken wall and you'll find another crate.  Pull this one to 
    the left once (so it aligns with the first crate) and back about 2.  
    Turn to your right and you'll see another crate near a platform with a 
    door.  Pull this one back about 2 to align with the 2nd crate (you may 
    want to pull it closer to the 2nd crate but it isn't necessary).  Now 
    jump into the 3rd area to your left where the final door is located.  
    That is where you ultimately want to go to.  Go to your left up a ramp 
    to find around 3 spiders to kill, a Lore Coffer, and a crate.  Once all 
    the spiders have been killed use the Lore Coffer and push the crate off 
    the ledge.  Push this one as close to the divider as you can.  It will 
    be blocked by some debris.  With everything in place jump back up and 
    use the valve at the beginning to raise the water level.  Go around the 
    ramp to the other side where you'll find the first crate.  Jump onto it 
    and then use your Jump ability to get onto the 2nd crate directly in 
    front of you.  Turn to the right and, again, use your Jump ability to 
    get on the 3rd crate near the platform with the door.  Jump to the 
    platform with the door and turn to your left to see a worker through the 
    window.  Use your Charm ability to possess him and use the control panel 
    to unlock the door for Kain.  As Kain, kill the worker and continue 
    around to see a crate.  Push it off into the water and then get very 
    close to the end and face the final block that you also pushed off a 
    ledge.  You should just barely be able to make the jump using your Jump 
    ability.  Now simply jump to the final door and activate the checkpoint 
    on the other end.  That is the last real puzzle in this game.

    Go through the door ahead of you to find yourself in a room with a green 
    beam in the center.  Jump on it as the symbol comes down and ride it up 
    to the 2nd floor where a Hylden Warrior awaits you.  Kill him and 
    proceed through the next door.  Turn to the left to find a Hylden and 
    Hylden Warrior behind some crates.  Kill them both and then jump down 
    the hold to a mist area.  Use your Mist ability and stealth kill the 
    patrolling Hylden Warrior.  Kill the other Hylden Warrior around the 
    large crate and walk over the checkpoint.

    Jump across the broken bridge on the ramp and continue up to what seems 
    to be a reactor.  On your right will be a sword and to your left will be 
    a Hylden to try out your new sword on.  Go across the bridge to another 
    Hylden and a Lore Coffer.  Kill the Hylden and use the Lore Coffer, then 
    go left into the next part.  Turn to face the green river and use your 
    Jump ability to get to the other side where a Hylden awaits.  Kill him 
    and go right where an elevator awaits you.  Use the control panel and 
    then quickly jump on the lift and then jump on top of the crates.  
    You'll now be level with the 3 reactors and you'll notice the beams of 
    energy turn off and on.  Go into your Jump ability mode and line up the 
    jump to the first reactor but do not jump until the energy disappears.  
    Once it does you'll have to be quick and jump from each reactor until 
    you reach the end.  Go through the tunnel ahead and kill the Hylden 
    Warrior ahead on your left.  Go through the left door and ahead to the 
    checkpoint.

    In this room you'll want to go to the end of the walkway and jump on the 
    boxes to your right up to the higher platform where 2 Hylden are 
    working.  Kill them both, use the Lore Coffer in the back corner, and 
    then use the control panel to deactivate the force field to the next 
    room.  In here, beware the sides, obviously, and use the control panel 
    to move ahead the platform so you can reach the tunnel on the other end.  
    When you reach the end of it use your Jump ability to get to the upper 
    catwalk and then follow that to the left.  Jump off it at the end and go 
    left where you'll see a weapon on some crates blocking a path and a 
    Hylden Pet trying to chase you.  Follow this path around to an area with 
    a human slave and 2 Hylden.  Jump on top of the crate in this area to 
    find a sword, then use your Jump ability to get to the area across the 
    water to find a weapon upgrade box!  I believe this is the only one in 
    this entire chapter so I'd be sure to use it and then go back to where 
    you killed the 2 Hylden.  Go straight ahead and use both control panels 
    to open a door and deactivate a force field.  Follow the path back out 
    to where the Hylden Pet was and take a let through the open door to have 
    it close quickly behind you.  Kill the Hylden Warrior in this area and 
    watch the cut scene as Kain is transported to the main building.  Kill 
    the normal Hylden and Hylden Warrior in this room and then go through 
    the door to the checkpoint.

    You are now in a room with what seems to be a main power generator.  Use 
    your Telekinesis ability on the symbol ahead of you as the sentinel 
    tries to kill you.  Keep running around and activating each of the 4 
    symbols with your Telekinesis ability until finally the generator will 
    explode.  Watch the long cut scene and walk ahead up to the large door.  
    Turn right and go down that side path and use your Jump ability to get 
    on the rock in the water.  Turn and again use your Jump ability to get 
    on the other side of the building where you'll find an opening to go 
    through.  Kill 2 Hylden Warriors in this room and continue up the ramp 
    to a room flooded with water and a checkpoint.

    Use your Charm ability on the worker to your left to activate the 
    control panel which will lower the water.  Jump down and push the crate 
    so it is directly under the control panel.  Again, use your Charm 
    ability on the worker to raise the water level and then use this control 
    panel to lower the water level again.  Jump off the crate and then jump 
    on the ride side of the walkways and around to where the turbines are.  
    Use your Jump ability to get to the other side and use this control 
    panel to open a door back in the main room.  Backtrack and go through 
    this newly-opened door and jump on the platforms as they rise to get up 
    to the 2nd floor.  Go around to a room where a normal Hylden and Hylden 
    Warrior are conversing.  Kill them both and use the control panel at the 
    other end to open the large door.  Go through and run to the other end 
    of the long bridge into the building that contains the gate.
    
    BOSS: Sarafan Lord (95%)
    The object in this first part is to knock the Sarafan Lord off the 
    platform.  To do this you will have to use your Telekinesis ability on 
    him to stun him.  Try to do this between his 3 bursts of energy he 
    throws at you.  After he is stunned quickly use your Jump ability to 
    land on him in order to push him off.  You will know you are on the 
    Sarafan Lord when your normally blue/white cursor turns to red.  Once he 
    is down you will watch another cut scene.  In this second part you will 
    have to block the Sarafan Lord's attacks (he will block 99% of your 
    attacks so don't bother) until your rage meter is full, then unleash 
    your Immolate ability on him.  Be sure to dodge his last unblockable 
    move and then continue to block.  You will have to Immolate him a total 
    of 4 times before you will watch another cut scene.  In this third and 
    final part Kain will have the Soul Reaver.  You must continue to block 
    the Sarafan Lord's attacks until your rage meter is full and then 
    unleash your Berserk ability on him.  Be careful when dodging his red 
    aura attacks because you might fall off due to the very small platform 
    you are on.  Once you use your Berserk ability on him twice he will die.  
    Congratulations for beating Blood Omen 2 and enjoy the ending movie (no, 
    there aren't any alternate endings).
