This game has a really good story line (as good as you can get with a Vampire for a lead character) and has in my opinion a fairly good replay value. The You are Kain, a once Nobleman who is killed by peasants just outside of his hometown of Coorhagen after leaving a Tavern. Kain is given a chance for vengance- which he foolishly accepts. Once you slay your murderers, you realize your journey is far from over.......

Kain is given a chance for vengance- which he foolishly accepts. Once you slay your murderers, you realize your journey is far from over....... *Arial- The Lover of Nupraptor and your guide through Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain. *Nupraptor- Guardian of the Pillar of the Mind and Arial's lover. He goes mad following the murder of Arial and spreads pain and misery among the Circl of Nine and is crumbling the foundation of Nosgoth. *Malek- Guardian of the Pilla of Conflict and protector of the Circle of Nine. He has only been defeated once- he fell to the Vampire Vorador. Malek is the last of the once great Serafin Sorceror Priests- a group of Warriors that carried out a Holy War to cleanse the land of the feared Vampires. Malek fails to protect the Circle and Mortanius damns him- fusing his soul to a hellish set of magical armor and is no longer human. In this wretched form he is to serve the remaining Circle for eternity. Since is damnation he has allowed no member of the Circle to fall again. *Dejoule- Guardian of the Pillar of Energy. This member of the Circle of Nine can usually be found with Bane. Together they created a place called Dark Eden. In and around Dark Eden the creatures are mutated, misshapen- bizare... When you first meet Dejoule, Malek is protecting her from you. *Bane- Guardian of the Pillar of Nature. Bane can usually be found travelling with Dejoule. Both can be found in Dark Eden. When you first see Bane, Malek is protecting him from you. *Azimuth- Guardian of the Pillar of Dimension. She can be found in the Cathedral in Azimuth. *Mobius- Guardian of the Pillar of Time. He can be found at the Stronghold of Willam The Just. *Anarcrothe- Guardian of the Pillar of States. He can be found at the Pillars at the end of the game. You don't have to do him in, Mortanius does it for you. His scales can restore the Pillar of States. *Mortanius- Guardian of the Pillar of Death. In the beginning of the game it is he who curses Malek and fuses him to his armor. It is also Mortanius that gives you the chance for vengance that you seek. Much much later on, you discover it is also he that is behind the corruption of the Pillars of Nosgoth. The Dark Entity is his alter ego. *Vorador- A powerful Vampire- and the only being to ever defeat Malek. He also personally slaughtered Six of the members of the Circle of Nine for supporting the Serafan Holy War. He offers you some advise- and gives you his ring to summon him. He tells you not to meddle in the affairs of man. His philosophy is that Vampires are Gods- the dreams of mortals are prayers to them begging for power and that mortals offer their blood so that Vampires may enjoy their gifts. *Elzevir The Dollmaker- Elzevir enters a contest given by King Otmar for his daughter's birthday. The one who could make the best doll would be granted one wish. Elzevir won and he has what seemed to be a simple request- a lock of the Princesses' hair. Soon after, the Princess lapses into a deep slumber. Using the doll and the lock of her hair, Elzevir had taken her sould and placed it into the doll. *King Otmar- The King gives a contest for his daughter's birthday. The one who makes the finest doll would have a wish granted by the King. Elzevir the Dollmaker eventually wins and his request seems simple- a lock of the Princesses' hair. Soon after his request is granted, the Princess lapses into a deep slumber. The King becomes tortured, and is really not running the Kingdom, and the Army of the Nemesis is approaching. 3) Walkthrough List This is just my list of what I think is the easiest way through the game- logical order..... 1.

(Well sort of- either choice stinks!) 4) Tough Spots No area in this game are too gough- not enough to warrant a full blown step by step 5) Spells *Blood Gout- Found in the Blood Gout Dungeon, Termogent Forest. This spell automatically drains the blood of the target. *Blood Shower- Found in Vorador's Mansion. Drains all enemies in the range of the spell- but take care in using this spell, it can also drain poisoned blood. *Control Mind- Found in the Control Mind Dungeon, Termogent Forest. This spell allows Kain to posess the mind of the target. He ramains in control until the body of the target dies or Kain unposesses the target. *Energy Bolt- Found in the Energy Bolt Shrine. This spell hurls a bolt of energy at enemies and certain objects. *Incapacitate- Found in the Caves leading to the Oracle. This spell stops an enemy and forces them to stay still. *Inspire Hate- Found in the 2nd Coorhagen Tunnel. This spell causes enemies to attack eachother rather than Kain. *Light- Found in the Light Shrine. This spell created artificial light to see in dark places. *Lightning- Found in the Lightning Cave- Full Moon. This spell attacks the target with bolts of lightining. *Repel- Found in the Town of Coorhagen. This spells creates a shield around Kain. It reflects magic and he cannot be attacked physically. But, it does only last for a short time, and will not protect from spikes you might walk over on the floor. *Sanctuary- Found in Kain's Mausoleum. This spell returns Kain to his Crypt. *Spirit Death- Found in Dark Eden. This spell causes instant death to all enemies with the exception of Bosses. *Spirit Wrack- Found in the Spirit Wrack Cave on the way to Willendorf. This spell allows Kain to control ANY enemy- except bosses of course. *Stun- Found in the Cave of Bandits. This spell stuns your target so Kain can easily feast on their blood. 6) Forms That Kain Can Change Into *Bat- Found to the NW of the Energy Bolt Dungeon. Once you get this form you can change yourself into a bat and fly to different places in Nosgoth. There are Bat beacons that you must activate (they look similar to save points, but these are green instead), and once you get to certain points, you can fly to bosses lairs, or to towns! *Beguile- Found in the Illusion Dungeon on the way to Willendorf. This is an inmprovement to the original Disguise you pick up in the Gypsy Camp earlier in the game. This one makes you appear as a Nobleman to townspeople. But if you attack anyone or attempt to feed, you revert back to your Vampire form. *Disguise- Found at the Gypsy Camp. This Disguise allows you to speak to townspeople. And it is nice to appear as one of them because they talk to you and won't attack you. But, if you attampt to attack anyone or try to feed, you will revert back to your Vampire form. *Mist- Found in the Mist Dungeon, Termogent Forest. This form will allow you to walk through certain walls and doors that are unpassable in your Vampire form. You can also walk on water with no damage. But physical attacks will still harm you. *Vampire- This is Kain's natural form. *Wolf- Found in the Wolf Dungeon near the Light Dungeon. This form allows Kain to morph into a wolf and jump on ledges (up or down) where the Vampire form of Kain cannot go. 7) Armor List *Bone Armor- Found In Coohagen Tunnel #1. This is a weak piece of armor, but is does have one small advantage... lesser forms of the undead (Skeletons and such) will not attack you as quickly while wearing this. *Chaos Armor- Found In Vorador's Mansion. While wearing this armor, enemies attacking you, might recieve a blow in return. *Flesh Armor- This armor has no real protection from attacks. It does, however automatically drain the monster you slay. The only drawback to that is that it sometimes drains poisonus blood! *Iron Armor- This is the armor you begin the game with. It will give you the most overall protection from physical attacks. *Wraith Armor- Found in Avernus' Cathedral. This is the strongest armor in the game with one drawback... It is only at is strongest at night- during the game is pretty much useless. 8) Weapon List *Axes (Havoc And Malice)- Found in Malek's Bastion. The axes are strong but have one very serious drawback if you are a fan of using magic and items like I am... You can't cast spells or use items while equipping the axes. *Flame Sword- Found in the Flame Sword Dungeon. This sword is strong (well, stronger than the sword you begin the game with) but also has a drawback (what doesn't?). The drawback is that it burns your enemies, so feeding is not possible. *Iron Sword- This is the sword you begin the game with. It is a good all around weapon, but there are better- once an upgrade becomes available use something else. *Spiked Mace- Found in Nupraptor's Retreat. This weapon is good for stunning an enemy (But if you hit them again sfter you stun them and they are still alive, they come out of the stun). Stunning an enemy makes it very easy to feed. This is also used to break down barriers. *Soul Reaver- Found in Avernus' Cathedral. This is hands down the strongest weapon in the game. But, is has its drawbacks (I bet you saw that one coming!). This is a two-handed weapon- you can't cast spells or use items. This weapon also consumes magic! 9) Item List Common items like Anti-Toxin, Energy Bank, Flay, Font Of Putrescense, Heart Of Darkness, Implode, Pentalich Of Tarot, and Slow Time can be found all over Nosgoth. *Anti-Toxin- Cures poison from Green Blood. *Elzevir The Dollmaker's Doll- Houses the soul of King Otmar's Daughter. *Energy Bank- Gives Kain access to massive amounts of magical energy, but once its effects wear off, Kain has not even a drop of magical energy left. *Flay- This attacks an enemy and shears the flesh from it's bones. *Font Of Putrescense- This item melts the intended target and anything else that touches the pool the victim leaves behing will also melt. *Heart Of Darkness- This item will ressurect Kain if he falls in battle. Also if used before Kain's demise, it will give him more blood than he would gain using it after he dies. *Implode- Hense the name- it causes the target to implode on contact. *Pentalich Of Tarot- This item will cause a random death to the intended targets. *Slow Time- This item causes time to slow down for everyone but Kain. Kain can move freely and faster than the others around him, making it easy to feed. *Vorador's Ring- Vorador himself gives you his ring to summon him once you meet him at his mansion in the Termogent Forest. 10) Bosses In Alphabetical Order *Azimuth- Found in Her Cathedral in the Town of Azimuth. Her fighting style is one I hate! She will summon two monsters to attack you. If you kill them she will just summon them again. If that isn't bad enough she attacks you with green energy bolts. And the thing I hate most is that she teleports from one side of the room to the other. Sometimes she teleports before you can hit her. The way I try to defeat her can be a pain, but is the safest way- it may just take you a long time depending on how fast you can accomplish it. First cast Repel on yourself. Then weild the Soul Reaver which you should find in the Cathedral before you even reach Azimuth. Hit her until she dies but keep an eye on your magic meter and your Repel Shield. If either start to fade, replenish them. * Bane- Found in Dark Eden with Dejoule. Bane is hard enough, but you don't fight Bane alone. Be appears with Dejoule! Bane never really physically attacks you, he just creates water puddles where ever he feels like. My strategy is to just avoid the puddles al best you can and hit Bane as many times as you can with the Flame Sword. If it takes you too long to kill Bane, the puddles become increasingly harder to avoid- you may not have a choice but to walk through them. Just take him out as soon as you possibly can and then turn your attention to Dejoule. *Dark Entity- This is the end boss and is found at the Pillars. The Dark Entity is merely the alter ego of Mortanius. He can be a real pain because he tunnels beneath the ground and when he emerges- he attempts to hit you with his body. If he connects with his body the damage you suffer is emense. I recommend the same strategy I suggested with Azimuth. Cast Repel on yourself and then equip the Soul Reaver. Again watch your health and replenish your magic and Repel sheild as necessary. *Dejoule- She is found in Dark Eden in the same place you have been fighting Bane. They unfortunately appear together. Dejoule is across the water from Bane. Finish off Bane and then turn your attention to Dejoule. She is protected by oval shaped water beads it looks like. Dejoule is very easy to defeat. First cast a Repel shield on yourself and then stand on the mound of earth on either side of her. Then just continuously throw the item Flay as many times as possible. You can use the spell Energy Bolt is you don't have enough Flays left to finish her off. *Elzevir The Dollmaker- He is found in his Mansion near the Kingdom of Willendorf. Here is another boss I hate the fighting style of! He fights just like Azimuth! He summons dolls or Teddy Bears (he IS a dollmaker afterall...) to attack you and he likes to teleport around the room. Take the same approach you used to kill Azimuth. Cast Repel on yourself and attack whenever possible with the Soul Reaver. Just remember to watch your Repel Shield and your magic meter! *Malek- He can be found at his Bastion high atop the mountains of Nosgoth in a wintry landscape. Malek can be a pain- he can do considerable damage to you with his weapon if he connects. One good thing about him is that he is slow moving, so his weapon is easy to dodge. I recommend using the Repel Shield and attacking him with the Iron Sword. Move away from him quickly when your shield drops. *Mortanius- You find him at the Pillars in the End Game. For a boss this late in the game, Mortanius is surprisingly easy. He stays fairly still and summons very easy monsters to attack you. Just use the Repel Spell and hit him with the Soul Reaver. *Nupraptor- He is the first boss you encounter and he can be found at his Retreat in the hills of Nosgoth to the west. Nupraptor likes to teleport like Azimuth and Elzevir. But to make him more complicated, he sends a row of giant balls at you. The green balls will not disappear, but the purple ones will. Just stay in front of the purple balls, and walk through the line when the purple ones disappear. Hit Nupraptor, and then walk back through the line at the purple balls. Continue to follow Nupraptor and hit him with your Iron Sword. Once he teleports to the center of the room, you know he is almost ready for the abyss. Give him just one more hit and he's finished. *William The Just- Now this is got to be the hardest boss you have to face. He doesn't fight alone and doesn't fight fair. Besides he too has a Soul Reaver! Now that isn't fair, is it? Luckily you can dodge his attacks most of the time due to the fact Willie moves very slowly. Just keep attacking him, you can use either the Soul Reaver or the Flame Sword. But, the Soul Reaver can be a pain because you have to keep unequipping it to recast Repel. I would just use the Flame Sword and leave yourself the opportunity to use magic. 11) Monster List (If Possible) 12) The Pillars Of Nosgoth *Pillar Of The Mind- Guarded by Nupraptor. His Head will restore the Pillar. *Pillar Of Conflict- Guarded by Malek. His Helmet will restore the Pillar. *Pillar Of Energy- Guarded by Dejoule. Her Cloak will restore the Pillar. *Pillar Of Nature- Guarded by Bane. His Headdress will restore the Pillar. *Pillar Of Dimension- Guarded by Azimuth. Her Third Eye will restore the Pillar. *Pillar Of Time- Guarded by Mobius. His Hourglass will restore the Pillar *Pillar Of Death- Guarded by Mortanius. His Death Orb will restore the Pillar. *Pillar Of States- Guarded by Anarcrothe. His Scales will restore the Pillar. *Pillar Of Balance- Guarded by Kain (Woah, what a shocker!). Restoration N/A 13) Dark Diary FMV (Full Motion Video) In specific parts of the game you are able to view a FMV (Full Motion Video) about a major event. These movies are informative and very well done. If you can't wait to complete the game to see all of the scenes, by all means use the Cheat Code found in the Odds And Ends Section below. Happy Viewing! *The first video shows the slaughter of some of the members of the Circle of Nine at the hands of the Vampire Vorador. They call to Malek but he arrives too late to stop the carnage. You then see a bit of the fight between Vorador and Malek. After that, Mortanius curses Malek and fuses him to his magical armor. And lastly, Arial is murdered and the Pillars crack. *The next movie is one of my favorites. You have been stain and yor hands are cuffed to a board, a sword driven through your body. You care not of your fate, but of revenge. The Necromancer Mortanius gives your wish. You will have your vengance- you go to seek it, as a Vampire. *After you kill the pesants that murdered you, you arive at the Pillars of Nosgoth. You see a strange floating spirit that speaks to you- she tells you that you must restore the corrupted pillars and heal Nosgoth. But, you care not for the fate of this world- you care only for your own suffering. She tells you to cleanse Nosgoth is to give yourself peace. So, you accept- if you didn't we wouldn't have a game, would we? . *You arive at the Oracle to listen to him prattle on about King Otmar and his ill child. You speak sternly to the Oracle and ask him who Malek is and how he can be defeated. Your answer: Malek is the last of the Serafin Sorceror Priests. He lead the Serafan Holy War against the Vampires. The Oracle tells you the rest of your answer lies with the Vampire Vorador at his Mansion in the Termogent Forest. *You meet the old and powerful Vampire Vorador. He tells you the story of how he killed six of the members of the Circle of Nine for supporting the Serafan Holy War. He gives you a warning- not to meddle in the affairs of man, and gives you his ring so that you may summon him when you need him. *In Dark Eden you met up with Malek, Bane, and Dejoule. Malek stands between you and Bane and Dejoule. You use the ring to summon Vorador. He appears in front of you and speaks to Malek- Bane and Dejoule run like cowards and you pursue them- leaving Vorador and Malek to fight it out. *You try to get into the Court of King Otmar. A lowly pesant gets in your way and you toss him aside. He tells you the sad story of his love for his daughter. He had arranged for a contest in the honor of his daughter's birthday. The one who could make the finest doll in the land would be granted a Royal favor. The dollmaker Elzevir made the best doll, and in return would take a lock of the Princesses' hair. She soon lapsed into a coma, lifeless like a puppet. He proclaims that any who can restore the Princess shall have his Kingdom. 1 minute *You are able to restore life to the Princess. But, you will not take the Kingdom.... Instead you take the Army and go off to fight the Legions Of The Nemesis. 36 seconds. *You travel back in time and see the speack of Mobius who has also braved time travel. He tells all that will listen to seek out and destroy all Vampires. 48 seconds *You walk into a crowd of peasants- only to see your mentor, the Vampire Vorador beheaded. The crowd is the told to rid the rest of the world of Vampires. The finger points to you- the last Vampire! *You have a short conversation with Mobius (the Oracle), but at the end he loses his head! It's a shame when one loses his head... *You arrive at the Pillars one last time, to hear two voices- one belonging to Mortanius and one belonging to Anarcrothe. You learn that it was Mortanius that had you murdered (that slippery little...) and brought you back to life to destroy the remaining Circle. Mortanius tells Anarcrothe he will welcome death if he is willing to deal out the killing blow. When Anarcrothe is unsucessful and Mortanius kills him instead. Enter Kain from behind a Pillar. Kain tells Mortanius that he's just going to have to kill him. Guess you shouldn't upset a Vampire! *You have killed Mortanius (so you thought) and he transforms to his alter ego- the Dark Entity. Time for the Final Fight! . *After the defeat of the Dark Entity, you learn that you are the soul survivor of the Circle of Nine. You now must chose to either save or damn the world. *If you damn the World: You realize that Vorador was right, Vampires are Gods- Dark Gods. As a God it is your duty to thin the herd. *If you save the World: You decide to give your life to save Nosgoth and restore the Pillar wich you guarrded. 14) Blood Fountains *Near the town of Nachtholm- Quicker Magic Recovery *North of Nachtholm- Rain Immunity *North of Vasserbhnde- Quicker Magic Recovery *Caves To The Oracle- Snowfall Immunity *Termogent Forest- Incresed Strength *North Of Uschtenhiem- Quicker Magic Recovery *Near The Spirit Wrack Dungeon- Increased Strength *South of Spirit Wrack Dungeon (Blocked By A Tree)- Increased Strength *East In Willendorf (A Cave)- Beguile Disguise 15) Full Moon Caves These caves will only open during a full moon. *North of the Town of Steinchencroe *East of the Town of Nachtholm *South of the Town of Nachtholm *South of the Town of Willendorf *South of the Town of Coorhagen *West of the Stronghold of William The Just 16) Spirit Forges Spirit Forges are where Kain can sacrafice some (well, lots) of his blood in exchange for Items.

I will update as soon as I can. Until then- Silicon Knights has a great section of their website dedicated to the 100 secrets of Legacy of Kain. The visuals help more than words can. The secrets are easier to find and understand this way. Check back- I may update this soon, it may be later. I may not get to it until after the holidays. But I will update it. I have kept here what I have already figured out. It still may not be right. My notetaking is very unorganized. If you find an error in anything here- let me know. I have organized the secrets to be found in alphabetical order. I hope they are helpful... and correct. Sometimes my notetaking while playing the game is a bit messy. When there are several secrets for a single area, I will state it like this: (Secret 1 of 31) for example. *Anti-Toxin Spirit Forge- Located in the Termogent Forest. *Avernus- (Secret 1 of 6) Go to the near center of town. Here you will find a house with debris in front of the door- it goes about 1/2 of the way up the doorway. Change into Mist Form and walk inside. Collect the Slow Time Item. (Secret 2 of 6) Stay in Mist Form and go east (still inside the house) and walk through the cracked wall. Walk around in the sewers behind the cracked wall- collect the items. The SouthWestern area there is an item which is the secret. (Secret 3 of 6) Still inside the house- go south to the first righ hand corridor. Collect the Slow Time item which is the secret. (Secret 4 of 6) In the far right (west) side of the town is a home that contains an item on the left side of the home- collect it, that is the secret. (Secret 5 of 6) There is a home much like the first one I mentioned in this section on the right (east) side of town. Go inside and to the back room- the item there is the secret. (Secret 6 of 6) South of the town is a Gypsy Camp, Move the two boulders (extra strength required) and collect the items there. *Avernus' Cathedral- On your way through the Cathedral, watch out for a door you trigger open. It's hard to explain really. For a better description visit the Silicon Knights webpage. They give a description on what to do- and they have a screenshot to describe what to do and where the door is. *Brigand's Base- South of the Town Averus (best reached by jumping the cliffs east of Nachtolm) is a cave that must be entered on a full moon, there is a secret here. *Cemetary- *Coorhagen Town- *Dark Eden- *Elzevir The Dollmaker's Area- *Energy Bank Spirit Forge- Located in the Termogent Forest. *Flay Spirit Forge- Located North West of the Wolf Dungeon. *Font Of Putrensense Spirit Forge- Located South of the Town of Coorhagen- Full Moon Cave *Heart Of Darkness Spirit Forge- Located South of Dark Eden *Implode Spirit Forge- Located North of the Town of Steinchencroe- Full Moon Cave *Kain's Crypt- *Light Spell Dungeon- *Lost City- Most of the game's secrets can be found here. 28 are hiding here so try not to skip anything and pick up everything you see. *Malek's Bastion- *Mind Control Spell Dungeon- *Nachtholm Town- *Nemesis (The Past)- *Nupraptor's Retreat- *Pentalich Of Tarot Spirit Forge- Located West of the Stronghold of William The Just- Full Moon Cave *Slow Time Spirit Forge- Located South of the Town of Willendorf- Full Moon Cave *Steinchencroe Town- *Uschtenheim Town- *Vasserbunde Town- *Vorador's Mansion- *Willendorf- *Willendorf Island- *Zeigstruchl Town- 21) Odds And Ends *There are three cheat codes for this game that I know of. They are: FULL BLOOD: Up, Right, Attack, Action, Up, Down, Right Left FULL MAGIC: Right, Right, Attack, Action, Up, Down, Right, Left DARK DIARY (See all scenes) Left, Right, Attack, Action, Up, Down, Right , Left Just push in one of the button combinations above and presto! It doesn't always work the first time, but once you have mastered the combinations, it works perfectly. *Kain is stronger at NIGHT (He is a Vampire afterall...) Save fighting strong enemies for then. *The Spell you gain in a dungeon is almost always the key to completing it. *Unfortunately you can't save anywhere you like (like in some other games)- but do try to save often. This makes the difference when it comes to how much you will have to re-do in the event of your demise or a power surge. *The sure sign you have been somewhere before is that the live monsters (the brightly colored monsters) have become ghosts (faintly colored). An attack by a ghost drains your magic meter instead of your blood meter. You can also drain a ghost (like drinking blood only a ghost's blood is blue) and replenish your magic meter. *Don't wait until you die to utilize a Heart of Darkness. Use one while you are alive and regain more blood! 22) Author's Notes: I have written this walkthrough myself. I had no help. But I have been very unsure of a lot of things (I'm sure that makes you wonder what qualifies me to write this then...) The secrets I have listed I found in the game through the help of the Silicon Knights (the creators of the game) Website. It is very helpful. I suggest visiting it. The address is: http://www.siliconknights.com The rest of the locations I left in my secrets section are other places that secrets can be found according to Silicon Knights. So, just continue to explore! That's the key to unlocking all of the secrets to Blood Omen: Legacy Of Kain. Also, as I have stated in my other walkthroughs (Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest and Secret Of Evermore) I only check my E-Mail once a week- every Monday. So, if you E-Mail me and it takes awhile for me to respond, that is the reason. But rest assured- I will return your E-Mail. Thanks for reading my walkthrough! 23) Credits I have written this walkthrough myself. I had no help.

The secrets I have listed I found in the game through the help of the Silicon Knights (the creators of the game) Website. It is very helpful. I suggest visiting it. Also my thanks to the usual people I always thank- My husband and my parents. They put up with me day in and day out talking about video games that they know nothing about (I have no gamers in my family). But, they do listen and read my work for me. And most of all they support me- even if they don't understand me completely. This FAQ Is Copyright MysteryMoogle 1999
