Walkthrough

At the beginning, go to either side of the platform that you are on to collect Gauntlets of the Necromancer and an Ethereal Crossbow. Drop down and run across the lava, collecting Quartz Flasks and then running up the stairs. Pull the switch and then teleport back to the starting area and pass through the passage that has opened.

The next room is full of pods. Push them aside instead of bursting them, as they will only grow back when destroyed. Pull the switch and collect the Dragon Claw. The red rooms behind you will open when you do so, and you may wish to collect the items inside. Now drop down and kill the Iron Liches using whatever means are necessary.

To find out more about these foes, see their page.

When they are dead, a passage will open to the south. You're not quite done, as several enemies are waiting in the passage to kill you. Kill them and hurry through the lava cave to a platform that lowers. Ride it up to the exit switch and complete the episode.

Secrets

There are four hidden chambers in the corners of the pod room, each counting as a secret:

  1. In the northwest corner, a Silver Shield.
  2. In the northeast corner, a Shadowsphere.
  3. In the southwest corner, a Ring of Invincibility.
  4. In the southeast corner, a Bag of Holding.
