BLOOD OMEN: LEGACY OF KAIN FAQ/WALKTHROUGH v2.1 By Mr.Slam [email protected] -------------------------------------------------------------- Contents 1. GENERAL TIPS 2. SPELLS 3. ITEMS 4. EQUIPMENT Armor Weapons 5. FORMS 6. SPECIAL PLACES OF NOSGOTH 7. WALKTHROUGH 8. THE BOSSES 9. THE PILLARS 10.DARK DIARY 11.SECRETS Still to be updated: - Special places of nosgoth - Secrets -------------------------------------------------------------- 1.General Tips 1. When you enter a new town search every house. There you can find nifty items. 2. When you get the option to fly to the next dungeon, walk instead. There could be important items or spells on the way to the dungeon. 3. If you're almost dead, use a heart of darkness while you're alive instead of when you're dead. That way you'll get more blood. -------------------------------------------------------------- 2.Spells Sanctuary : This spell returns Kain to his crypt. Use this spell when you're low on HP. Light : Illuminates the whole area for a short period of time. Energy Bolt : Fires an energy bolt, which is very usefull. It isn't very strong, thouch. Repel : I think this is the best spell in the game. It protects Kain with an energy shield, making him invulnerable for a short period of time. Even to poison. I recommend using this spell very often. It's very usefull when fighting bosses, and enemies with poisonous attacks Inspire Hate: Causes enemies to attack themselves instead of Kain. Very usefull with lots of enemies around you. Stun : Stuns enemies with one blow, making it very easy for Kain to feed on them. Incapacitate: Stops an enemy in his tracks for a short period of time. Control Mind: With this spell Kain can take over any HUMAN mind until the body dies. Blood Gout : With this spell, Kain can drain blood from his enemy, without even hitting him. Be carefull though, you musn't use this spell on enemies who's blood is green. Always check the blood before using this spell. Blood Shower: Same as Blood Gout, but drains blood over a larger area striking all the creatures in that area. Spirit Death: A projectile, which seperates the soul from the body leaving your enemies dead. Lightning : Summons lightning to hit enemies. This spell must be used outdoors. Spirit Wrack: Same as Control Mind, but this spell allows Kain to control a creature's Spirit. Spell Location -------------------------------------------------------------- Santuary Kain's Mausoleum Light Shrine of Light Energy Bolt Energy Shrine Repel Coorhagen Inspire Hate Tunnels of Coorhagen Stun Bandit Cave Incapacitate Caves to Oracle Control Mind Mind Dungeon Blood Gout Blood Dungeon Blood Shower Vorador's Mansion Spirit Death Dark Eden Lightning Lightning Cave (full moon) Spirit Wrack Spirit Wrack -------------------------------------------------------------- 3.Items Heart of Darkness : When Kain has died, this item brings him back to life, with a small amount of blood. When Kain is alive, it gives him a larger amount of blood. Flay : Blades, which track their enemies down, stripping the skin of their bodies Implode : Causes an enemy to shrink, crushing every bone in it's body. Slow Time : Causes enemies to move more slowly. Font of Putrescense: Dissolves enemies into a poisonous pool. Energy Bank : This item lets Kain use unlimited amount of Magic for a short period of time. After that period, Kain magic bar will be completely empty. Pentalich of Tarot : A random mixture of 5 interesting deaths. Anti-Toxin : Cures Kain of green blood, which is poisonous. -------------------------------------------------------------- 4.Equipment ARMORS Iron Armor : This is the armor you begin with. It has no special powers, but offers the most protection against damage. Bone Armor : This armor isn't very strong, but because you look like a skeleton, lower undead lifeforms won't attack you that fast. Chaos Armor : This armor also isn't strong, but causes some enemies to receive the blows as well. Flesh Armor : This armor is the weakest. It automatically drains the blood of slain enemies. Watch out for green coloured blood! Wraith Armor: At night, this is the strongest armor. In day light, it's useless. Armor Location -------------------------------------------------------------- Iron Armor Start Bone Armor Tunnels of Coorhagen Chaos Armor Vorador's Mansion Flesh Armor Dark Eden Wraith Armor Avernus' Cathedral WEAPONS Iron Sword : This is strong weapon. It is also quick, but it is not the strongest weapon. Spiked Mace : With this weapon Kain can strike two blows in a row. The second one stuns an enemy, so Kain can feed. Axes : These are very strong. Push the button once and Kain will stike one time. Hit the button twice and Kain will strike two times. Hit it several times and he will strike several times. And if you go beserk on the button, Kain will go beserk too. You can't use a spell or items while using the axes. Flame Sword : Use this blade to burn your foes. It's stronger than the iron sword, but when you've burned your enemies, you can feed on their blood. Soul Reaver : This is the strongest weapon, altrough not the best. This blade tears the soul of an enemy apart. The two bad things of this weapon are, that it's two-handed and it uses magic points. The stronger the foe, the more magic points it uses. My favorite weapon is definitely the flame sword. I know you can't drain blood, but if you play well, you won't need to. Weapon Location -------------------------------------------------------------- Iron Sword Start Spiked Mace Nupraptor's Retreat The Axes Malek's Bastion Flame Sword Flame Dungeon Soul Reaver Avernus' Cathedral -------------------------------------------------------------- 5.Forms Bat : This form allows Kain to travel to specific placs of Nosgoth, where he has been ready. This could be a dungeon, town or landmark. Kain can't use bat form in a dungeon. Wolf : With this form Kain moves a lot faster and can jump over obstacles. When fight however, he is very slow. Disguise: At first Kain has the diguise as a peasant. With this disguise he can talk to normal people. The form can be upgraded to "Beguile", giving him a look of nobility. Mist : This form allows Kain to move over water, through some doors and cracks in walls. This form needs the most amount of magic points to contain. Form Location -------------------------------------------------------------- Bat North/west of Energy Bolt Shrine Wolf Wolf Cave Disguise Gypsy Camp Mist House of Mist -------------------------------------------------------------- 6.Special places of Nosgoth Mooncaves : These cave only open when the moon is full. As soon as dawn breaks they close. When you're walking in a mooncave and the sun is coming up, it closes when you leave the cave. Locations of Mooncaves: 1. South of Nachtholm 2. East of Nachtholm 3. North of Steinchencroe 4. South of Coorhagen 5. South/west of Beguile cave exit 6. West of William the Just's Stronghold (present) Caves of Spirit forges: In these caves you can get artifacts if you sacrifice a bit of your own blood. These caves can often be found in a mooncave.

Go outside the tavern, where you are murdered by peasants. - A scene will follow, where the necromancer Mortanius you a chance offers to get revenge on the murderers.

THE END -------------------------------------------------------------- 8.THE BOSSES Below is a list of bosses throughout the game. 1. Name : Nupraptor the Mentalist Location: Nupraptor's Retreat. Fighting: Nupraptor the Mentalist attack by shooting style energy balls slowly at you in a horizontal row. After you've hit him a few times more spikes will appear. Finally, he teleports to the center of the room and fires projectiles at you (only vertical, horizontal or diagonal). Way to : The row of energy balls he fires at you consists defeat of green balls and two purple balls. The green balls don't fade , but the purple ones do. At this point walk through the row and move slowly towards Nupraptor. When you reach Nupraptor, you'll be able to hit him once. Then he will teleport to the other side. Do the same thing again. After you hit him about 5 times, he will teleport to the center. Now you need one hit to kill him. Just walk up to him and give him a good slash with your iron sword. 2. Name : Malek the Damned Warrior Location: Malek's Bastion Fighting: Malek fights with a Polearm. He walks around very Style slow, but does a lot of damage when he hits you (since your blood bar isn't that large you should be carefull). Way to : To defeat Malek equip the iron sword, Now hit him defeat four times in a row (pushing attack button rapid- ly). He'll fall to the ground (if he doesn't, hit him another four times). Every time he stands up he will shoot two homing energy projectiles and three straight ones (diagonal and vertical). After that, he will continue to walk around trying to hit you. When you've hit him three times to the ground, he will go to the center of the area and fire a very destructive energy wave. The only thing you can do now is flee to the south/east corner. 3. Name : Bane Location: Dark Eden Fighting: Since Bane is a wizard of Nature he turns land style into water. He walk, fast but doesn't attack you. By turning land into water he tries to destroy you. Way to : The fact that Bane turns land into water isn't a defeat problem, because you could change to mist. But when you're in mist form, you can't do anything else. So I suggest you take out Bane as fast as you can. First equip the flame sword. Then use the repel spell to reflect Dejoule's energy bolts. The only thing you have to do is hit Bane a lot of times and he will die. 4. Name : Dejoule Location: Dark Eden Fighting: Dejoule doesn't do much really. She just stands style on water firing homing energy bolt at you. Dejou le is also protected by a ring of energy balls. Way to : After you killed Bane, it's Dejoule's turn to defeat die. Dejoule is the easiest boss to defeat. Again use the repel shield and walk to the edge of the land so that you can see her. Now you can either throw flay's or energy bolts. If you haven't got enough flay's, throw energy bolt and if you haven't got enough magic power for that either go stand in the east near the door to the teleporter and wait until you have enough magic power. Just keep throwing one of the two at Dejoule's shield. which will disappear and keep throwing until you hit her. After a few hits, she will die as well. 5. Name : Azimuth the Planer Location: Avernus' Cathedral Fighting: Azimuth summons two Demons at the time to kill style you and she also attacks with energy bolts. Way to : First use the repel shield against her homing defeat energy bolts. Then equip the soul reaver, which you have by now and make sure you magic bar is completely filled. Don't waste your magic power on the demons Azimuth summons, when you kill them she just summons two more. Walk to Azimuth inste ad, and with a full magic bar one good blow would be enough to slay her. If you're to slow she will teleport to the other side. Just try again and again until you hit her. When she's dead kill the two demons. There shouldn't be any problems killing them. 6. Name : Elzevir the Dollmaker Location: Dollmaker's Mansion Fighting: Elzevir fights quite the same as Azimuth, but he style shoots arrows instead of energy bolts and summons dolls and teddy bears instead of demons. Way to : The way to defeat him also is the same as Azi defeat muth. The only differince between the two is that you need a lot more that one magic bar to kill Elzevir with the soul reaver. 7. Name : William the Just Location: William the Just's Stronghold Fighting: William the Just is one of the hardest enemy to style beat. He fights along with other gaurds and as a weapon he has a SOUL REAVER!!!. yep, a very strong blade indeed. The good point is, that he doesn't walk that fast. Way to : What can I say. Use the repel shield a keep defeat hitting him with as much as you 've got. The soul reaver works, well, but you need to fill you're magic bar. The flame blade would be better, because you can use magic while being equiped with it. When you've defeated him a bunch of gaurds will attack you, but with the repel shield on, they can't harm you. 8. Name : Mortanius Location: The Pillars Fighting: Mortanius isn't that hard to defeat, he stands style still on one point and summons lesser undead creatures like skeletons and ghouls. Way to : Put on a repel shield (as soon as you have this defeat shield use it very often) and hit Mortanius with the soul reaver or flame sword. 9. Name : The Dark Entity Location: The Pillars Fighting: The Dark Entity uses his own body to attack. It style disappears in the ground and after a while it comes out from the ground. By rising out of the ground he attempts to hit you with his massive body. When he does you'll get a lot of damage. Way to : For the last time use the repel shield. When the defeat Dark Entity comes up, you won't get hit. Now strike him as many times as you can untill it drops back in the earth. The flame sword and the soul reaver are the best weapons you can use to fight him. -------------------------------------------------------------- 9.The Pillars In order to restore the pillar, you need to bring an item from that person and lay it in front of the pillar.
