Sarafan Lord strategies

-As soon as the battle starts, the most important thing to do is to locate him. When you do, go to the platform across from him so that there is a walkway between you. When he fires the energy orbs, jump above the first one and stay down on the second. After that, jump again on the third. When he is over you will have seconds to use your Telekenisis on him. When you use it, immediately switch over to jump and knock him off the ledge. You cannot be too near him when you try to jump or he will teleport away. When he has the Soul Reaver out, switch over to Immolate. He only has one set of attacks. He hits you five times, then uses the magic red sword. Block his five attacks, jump back from the sword, and use Immolate on him. This is the only way to hurt him here. Do this three times to proceed. When you get the Soul Reaver, he still has the same attack pattern (five hits then the magic punch). Block the five hits and jump straight up in the air to evade the red hit. When you get down, immediately use the Soul Reaver. You can only hit him one time per round of attack. It will take some time to defeat him.

-When Kain has the Soul Reaver and the Sarafan Lord does the five hits, evade the magic hammer blow. Then, grab the Sarafan Lord and thrust the Soul Reaver through his chest. You will defeat him in less than a quarter of the time it would take with one hit on each turn.

-After getting the Soul Reaver, build up your special power and use the berserk attack. It will kill him within two hits.

-After obtaining Kain's Soul Reaver back, the Sarafan Lord will hit you with his five punch combo and his power punch. Block his five punches and evade his power punch so you can charge up Kain's "Berserk" attack. When done, just block the Sarafan Lord's punches and side step his power punch, then hit him with the "Berserk" attack. If the Sarafan Lord does not block the attack, just repeat and enjoy the ending.

-At the beginning, wait for him to teleport, then make your way to him while avoiding his blasts. Before you stand on the same platform he is on, fire a shot of Telekinesis to knock him back. If done correctly, you will see him start to lose his balance. While still standing far off, use the Jump power to knock him off the platform. For the next part you must face him in hand-to-hand, except you are not going to use your hands except to block. He will do a five hit combo, then an unblockable attack. After blocking the first five, back off and wait for him to finish his attack, then move back in and continue to block. When your rage is high enough, use the Immolate attack. This is the only attack that can hurt him. After the short intermission sequence, you will fight him again, but this time with the Soul Reaver in your hand. Once again, he will do the five-hit combo plus the unblockable attack. There is only one way to hurt him -- grab him and stab him. Do this a few times, and you will view the ending sequence.

-After reaching the third and final stage of the battle with the Sarafan Lord, you must block his first five attacks then attack once. This takes far too long. Instead, select "Berserk" from your Dark Gift menu when the last stage of the battle begins. As you block his first five attacks then evade his sixth attack (which is unblockable), you will be building Berserk energy. Block his five attacks then dodge the sixth unblockable attack. Unleash your Berserk attack, and you will get in twice as many hits. You only need do this twice and the Sarafan Lord will be defeated. This quickens the battle and allows you to complete the game with much less aggravation.

-When the battle begins, find him immiediatly. Then, go to the nearest platform to him (not the same one) and use your Telekinesis dark gift. Use it on him, then use your Jump dark gift and jump on him. It will knock him off the platform. He will say some things about the Nexus Stone. Kain will drop the Nexus Stone off the platform, destroying the Hylden Gate. Next, do your normal block dodge attack moves and use your dark gift Immolation. This will take him down quickly. Ionnis will appear, and he and the Sarafan Lord will fight. The Sarafan Lord wins and Ionnis will tell you to pick up the Soulreaver. You will need to do normal block dodge attack and use your dark gift Berserk to bring the Sarafan Lord down very fast.

-To defeat the Sarafan Lord, evade the shots from the Soul Reaver, then use Telekinesis to briefly stun him. In this time, switch Dark Abilities to Jump and attack him. This will knock him off. An intermission sequence will begin, then you will have to fight again. During this time, block until he raises his sword above his head. When this happens, jump directly up and float until he finishes his attack. Your Rage Meter should be filling. When it is full, use Immolate on him. Repeat this process until the first vampire appears. He will be hurled from the area into banishment. An intermission will play and you will be on the center platform. Once there, repeat the process, except he will rest after doing his combo. Hit him once with the Soul Reaver and continue.

-When on the last stage of defeating the Sarafan Lord (when you have the Soul Reaver), switch to Berserk and build up your rage bar. Attack with Berserk you should kill him in two repetitions.

-First, evade his beams then knock him off. When he is using his second tactic, use Immolate four times. When he is using his third tactic, use Berserk two times.

How to defeat the big mosquitoes

In almost all scenes, the enemies have boundaries that they cannot cross. If you find these boundaries, the mosquitoes will be waiting on the opposite side for you to cross back over. Use the jump attack by jumping over and kicking them. After that, before they recover, run back over the boundary line. After four kicks the mosquitoes will die. It is more difficult when there are two waiting for you, but can still be done.

Marcus strategies

-The fight takes place in a cathedral, on the bottom floor first. On the left and right sides of the room are switches, one on each side. These switches activate bells that disrupt Marcus' concentration and leave him vulnerable for a short time. Hit one switch, then run to the other switch, hitting Marcus on the way. Continue this until his "puppets" disable the bells. Go up to the second floor. Marcus will just run around until you kill him. Use the jump ability to alternate between sides, hitting him on the way. Once he dies, you acquire the Charm ability.

-Simply hit the bell switches and hit him when he is stunned. When his puppets disable the bell, you can still ring it by jumping into it. He is easier to locate that way. Then, just run around killing enemies while hacking up Marcus, sometimes ringing the bell. You can avoid the puppets altogether, but you will want to build up your Lore bar as much as possible.

-To defeat Marcus follow the previous strategies until his "puppets" break the bells. After that, pursue Marcus until you run into his "puppets". Kill the puppets, increasing your Lore and Blood bar. He will be on the same floor as his "puppets" -- this will help you learn where his next minion is located. When you find him, use combos repeatedly until he loses.

-Chase him into the room that has two switches on each side, then run to a switch and use it to ring the church bells. This will temporarily paralyze Marcus. Attack him with combos and the Fury power. When he recovers, run to the switch on the other side and ring the bell again. Keep doing this until he summons the bishops. Run upstairs and attack the guard, gaining any lost blood and weapons. He will be invisible, but will occasionally reappear. When he does, chase him, then attack him. You can still hurt him while he is invisible. He will summon more guards, but will be defeated before long.

Jumping to Rune Knights on "Wharves"

Around the center of the Wharves chapter is a place where you have to constantly jump across a river with one Rune Knight in each area you jump to. Before you jump, hit the Rune Knight twice with Telekinesis. When you jump, try to make the jump indicator red so that you hit the Rune Knight. While he is on the ground, draw your weapons or get your claws out. Right when he stands, start attacking and catch him off guard. Two hits should be required with bare claws and only one hit with some sort of weapon.

Magnus strategies

Magnus is pretty easy to defeat. When he is standing in the center of the large fountain that is surrounded by statues, run and hide behind the closest one. He will try to burn you, but will hit the statue. Jump out and quickly shoot him with Telekinesis. Once he falls into the water, run behind the next statue until he tries to burn you again and repeat the process until he leaves. It should only take three times. In the next room you will see large statues holding scythes. Magnus cannot burn you anymore, but he will charge into you. Do not bother hitting him. It does not do any good. Get in front of one of these statues and get him to charge you. When he does, evade him and he will run into the scythe, breaking it. Once it breaks, you will see a glowing telekinetic switch. Jump onto one of the boulders or platforms so Magnus cannot get you, and shoot the switch. The statue will open its arms. Do that to all of the statues and the large statue in the middle of the room will be put back together. Get Magnus to charge into the base of the weapon that the statue is holding the same way as before. When it breaks, make him charge into the base until the statue falls and crushes him. Just stand next to it and shoot Magnus with Telekinesis. That should make him charge you.

-Whilee fighting Mangus, it is much easier if you just grab him and throw him into the giant statues holding scythes. Even if you miss with the throw, he can still bump into them when he is getting up, and they will still break.

-When the battle starts, stand directly behind one of the statues. Beware as his Immolate attack can kill you with one hit. After he destroys the statue, use the Telekinesis gift to knock him into the water. You will need to do this about four times. Enter the next area with the Telekinesis still equipped. In this area, you will see four statues glowing red. Stand in front of one and shoot Magnus with the Telekinesis. When he charges at you, jump over him. A switch will appear at the feet of the statue. Use your Telekinesis to operate it before Magnus recovers. Do the same for the other four, and the statue in the middle will rebuild itself. Next, use the Statue technique on the large one; you may need to do this more than once. This should finish him off.

Easy kills hint

After you defeat Sebastian and obtain the Dark Gift Charm, use it on a enemy that you cannot charm. It will appear as if they have a headache. Immediately run towards the enemy and attack. Repeat this until the enemy is killed.

Sarafan guards strategy

-Use the Charm spell whenever a guard is a good distance away from you. The Charm spell will not succeed in controlling them, but it will succeed in confusing them. The guard will hold his head with both hands, as if they he has a sudden headache. During this time, take out the guard with any desired weapon. The easiest way is to cast Charm, walk up to them, lift them off their feet, then decapitate them with the axe sword.

Instant death attack

You must have mist in the area of the person to do an instant death attack. Enter the mist using your dark skill ability "Mist", then sneak up behind them. A skull will appear. Use this time to attack and you will cause instant death to the enemy. Note: If you run into the front of the person, they will immediately attack.

Raising Kain's lore

-When you find a save point, avoid it. Instead, first kill all the enemies ahead. After you are satisfied with the amount of enemies you have killed, backtrack to the save point that was skipped and hit it. The game records your current lore level at this point. After that, once the save point is hit, kill yourself. Therefore when you regenerate at the save point, you will have the same amount of lore. All the enemies that you already killed will return. Kill them again and get even more lore. The Relic Boxes also work in the same way.

-Note: Do not max out Kain's lore (blood bar roughly the same length as lore bar and lore bar full). If this is done and the game is saved, Kain's blood bar will revert to  nothing. If this happens, a simple jump will cause Kain to die. If you kill all available targets (including humans) throughout the game, you will get the same blood bar level as you would using the trick. If you do use this trick and are nearly maxed out, stop drinking blood and opening relics. Otherwise, you will lose all your hard work when you save.

Sebastian strategies

-When the battle begins, run the opposite way of the mist shooting out of the grates. Jump over when needed. Sebastian will not jump, thus burning himself. In his second phase, you must be directly behind one of the mists and follow it around until it stops. When he grabs onto the wall, put the purple portal object between you and him. He will run directly into it. Do this three times to proceed. In his third phase, he will try to destroy the stone. Jump up there so he gets off and charm the peasant in the room to unload all of the mist on the ground. His fourth phase is just a fist fight until the end.

-Let Sebastian kill you once, then allow the game to idle and watch the "steam" appear and kill Sebastian.

-At the start, block his attacks and watch out for his red attack. Be careful; after you knock him down, he will charge at you with an unblockable tackle. Just undo the Autoface and jump over him. Then, he will start to run around in circles while a column of thunder hits the center of the room. Run around the center while avoiding the dangerous gases from the side of the room. When you see him stop, this means he will strike. Stand in the room so that the column of thunder is between you and him. He will run into it, then leap back into the side. Repeat this about three times. Knowing he cannot defeat you, he will try to destroy the Nexxus Stone. Jump on top of the platform and use the Charm Gift on the guard that is activating the switches. Use him to operate one of the switches and draw Sebastian to you. Continue to attack until he is defeated.

-Whenever Sebastian charges at you, jump and use the fire attack. Get his health down to about one fifteenth, then he will charge up and will  hurt himself eventually. He will take off half his health.

Faustus strategies

You start in a tiny circle room with two doors. All you have to do is face the Boss and hold Attack + Block. Wait for him to attack. He has four different types: in the first, he does a five or six hit combo. In the second, he can punch, then kick. In the third, he will just kick. In the fourth, he jumps back with a red glow and lunges forward. When he uses his first type of attack, wait until he punches a third time, then release your block and attack. Repeat this about five times to proceed. In the next room you must use the mist form to sneak up to the furnace and burn him. To do this, you must first find the two furnaces with fog in front of them. They are on opposing sides. When you first enter the room, one is to the left and the other is to the right. Run around until he jumps to one of the two, then sneak to the corner and turn mist on. Slowly walk to the switch and fry him. Lastly, he will jump around and lunge at you. Just run around until he lunges. This will cause him to eventually fall. Run up to him and use a combo. This must be done about three or four times in order to defeat him.

-Always block and sidestep his attacks while finding open spots for attack until you get about one quarter of his life down. He will then run off and enter a room will large heaters and mist around them. When Faustus jumps on to a heater, proceed towards the beginning of the mist trail that leads to the heater and pull the switch to hurt him. Keep repeating this procedure until he jumps up on to a chain, then run to a corner of the room and stay there until Fautus jumps down. He will now try to jump and kick you from far away. If you sidestep his attack, he will hit the wall and will be vulnerable for several seconds. Keep repeating this until he is dead.

-The easiest way to defeat Faustus is to block until your Fury bar glows and hit him with that. Evade every time you see him try to use a glyph attack. It only takes two Fury hits to get him to go to the furnace room. Load up the Mist glyph and head to a steam spot right away. You should be able to turn on the furnaces without taking too much damage running from steam spot to steam spot. Once he gets burned and starts running around the rafters, just run around the edges of the room until you hear him drop down. Try to be near a corner or wall. Wait for him to jump at you, then jump or evadee his attack. Once he hits the wall, he will be stunned. You can hit him with a good combo before he jumps back up to the rafters. Repeat this two or three times and he will die quickly.

-At the start, equip your Fury power, block his combos, and back up when you see him charge up with a red attack (which is unblockable). Try to get some hits in, then use Fury when it is charged up. You will then enter a room with four furnaces. Luckily one furnace has mist that flows close to the center of the room. Chase him around until he is on top of that furnace. Then, without getting too close to it, use the Mist power, and activate the furnace. You will need to do this about three to four times. Finally, he will jump up into the ceiling and strike you when he comes down. Keep running close to the walls, and he will run into them. Attack him when he recovers. Keep this up until he is defeated.
