6. ~ 10. Traversing through the Cave - Tips

Defeat Lizards as Quickly Possible

Defeat Lizards as Quickly Possible

Prioritize taking out the Lizards inside the cave as quickly as possible as they spew poison. Getting ganged up by them will easily fill up your Poison Meter and give you continuous Poison damage.

Don't Stick Too Closely to the Walls


Enemies lie in wait in the very walls of the cave. They will burst out to grab or stab you with their spear. When you get a Perilous Attack symbol, quickly move away from the wall as an attack will be launched.

7. Crouch Down and Pass Through - Tips

Do Not Strike the Serpent

Do Not Strike the Serpent

While going through the cave, the Snake's body will be in reach. Do not attack it as doing so will cause the Serpent to wiggle around and make it harder for you to go through the cave until it calms down again.
