Do not attack humans:
You will encounter your first human in Malchia's domain. He is a vampire
hunter garbed in silver armor, shoots silver stakes from a bow, and will be
hostile. Leave him alone and continue on to fight the zombie-like vampire.
Leave after killing it, and do not go back to the human. The next human you
encounter, located in the gear room, should fall to his knees and hold out his
arms. The humans now consider you an avenging angel. Do not attack them, or
they will turn on you. Warning: Vampire Worshippers are garbed in red and
gold. They wield throwing knives and staffs and will always attack. You may
kill them as they are evil. Be sure to check your human targets. You will now
be able to peacefully roam through the human stronghold.
Fun with humans:
For those of you who feel the need to unleash your wrath upon your
unsuspecting human friends, go ahead and kill them with glyphs. The other
humans will not acknowledge that you are responsible. Try the force, stone,
and fire glyphs. You can do fun things like sailing a worshipping human
against the wall, killing him, and watching as he proceeds to slide into the
water only to die again.
To defeat the Malchia, lure him under one of the two spike gates and release
them right when he is slithering under it. Repeat this on the other side of
the room. After that, lure him into the center cage, quickly jump out, run to
where Malchia started from, and roll the lever. This will cause the large
spikes on the ceiling to come grinding down on top of him.

Pull the three stakes out of him to bring him back to life. Lure him into the
furnace room very slowly -- if you move too fast, he will return to his room
and you will have to begin again. Turn on the gas and hit the switch after he
is in the furnace room to fry him.
Bring a torch with you to the fight with Zephon. Run up to his belly, and
swipe the torch at the hole for a bit of damage. He will attack with his leg,
and get it stuck in his belly. Strike the leg. He will be heavily damaged.
Strike the egg hole to cause more damage. Any time he gets a leg stuck in the
ground, hit it with the torch, then hit his egg sack to quickly kill him. This
is easier than the "correct" method. After defeating him, you will gain the
ability to scale walls.
You must enter the chamber in the spectral realm. Go to the top pillar where
the portal is located and materialize. After a brief exchange of words, your
only task is to shoot out the windows lining the room to let in the sunlight.
Use the force blast-- you do not need Soul Reaver, so do not worry about
taking hits. After he dies, you will acquire the swimming ability.
Defeating Kain (first time):
Simply wait for him to materialize and hit him. He will appear behind you 90%
of the time. You will acquire Soul Reaver after he is defeated.
Defeating Kain (final time):
Wait for him to materialize and hit him. You need soul reaver to do damage.
The spirit forge in the center of the arena always automatically fills your
health. Simply run over to it to accomplish this. When you strike him the
first time, he appears on the second tier, again usually behind you. Finally,
when you hit him on the second tier, he will materialize on the third and
highest tier, again usually behind you. Quickly hit him a third time to defeat
Use of the Constrict ability:
First, you must have a circular area around the target. For example: Assume
that the target is a Dumahim vampire (the most common in Nosgoth). Now,
without using autoface, run a complete circle around the vampire until Raziel
is followed by a trace of blue energy. This energy, once fully invoked, will
"constrict" the vampire, causing it to be momentarily stunned -- and allowing
ample time for you to finish the it off. The Constrict ability has odd effects
on humans. They are as follows:
1. Certain humans, once you begin the Constrict ability, will act as though
they plummeted into water. If you do not finish the ability, they will
2. The human will get stunned when Constrict is half finished, allowing you to
stop and feed on their soul.
3. The most common and normal result is that the human will instantaneously
The Constrict ability is required to complete the puzzle in the
Chrono-chamber. Also, make sure to return to areas of Nosgoth you have already
visited prior to gaining that ability. You will find that Constrict can be
used on many things, and may open up useful secrets (such as Eldritch
artifacts, Glyphs, and life force pieces). Constrict does not work on Kain and
will not work underwater.
