BLOOD OMEN: LEGACY OF KAIN

FAQ/WALKTHROUGH
v1.00
By Mr.Slam
andre.weber@tip.nl
---------------------------------------------------------------
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.
---------------------------------------------------------------

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 useful. It
isn't very strong, though.

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.

Inspire Hate: Causes enemies to attack themselves instead of
Kain.

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 them. Be careful
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.

----------------------------------------------------

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
and strip the skin off their bodies

Implode : Causes an enemy to shrink, crushing every
bone in their 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's 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.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Equipment
----------------------------------------------------------------
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 Place
---------------------------------------------------
Iron Armor *Start
Bone Armor *Tunnels of Coorhagen
Chaos Armor *Vorador's Mansion
Flesh Armor *Dark Eden
Wraith Armor *Abernus' 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
to. 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't feed on their blood.

Soul Reaver: This is the strongest weapon, although 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 Place
--------------------------------------------------------------
Iron Sword *Start
Spiked Mace *Nupraptor's Retreat
The Axes *Malek's Bastion
Flame Sword *Flame Dungeon
Soul Reaver *Abernus' Cathedral

--------------------------------------------------------------

Forms
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bat : This form allows Kain to travel to specific places of
Nosgoth, where he has been already. 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 fighting however, he is very slow.

Disguise: At first Kain has the disguise 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 Place
------------------------------------------------------------
Bat *Road to Nupraptor's Retreat
Wolf *Wolf Cave
Disguise *Gypsy Camp
Mist *House of Mist
-------------------------------------------------------------

Special places of Nosgoth
---------------------------------------------------------------
Mooncaves : These caves only open when the moon is
full. As soon as dawn breaks they
close. When you're walk in a
mooncave and the sun is coming up, it
closes when you leave the cave.

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.
----------------------------------------------------------------

Walkthrough
---------------------------------------------------------------
Note: This walkthrough doesn't have all 100 secrets. I have
not been able to find all of them. Most of the secrets I
have found were in a dungeon, without noticing it. I
have come to a total of 43 secrets. So if anyone has
more and they aren't listed here, please e-mail me at
andre.weber@tip.nl
----------------------------------------------------------------

- You start the game in the tavern of Ziegstuhl. Go outside
the tavern, where you are murdered by peasants.

- A scene will follow, where the necromancer Mortanius offers
you a chance offers to get revenge on your murderers. Of
course you accept it and return as a vampire to get revenge.

- You'll restart the game, but now as a vampire (cool).

- KAIN'S MAUSOLEUM

Spells: Sanctuary
Items : 1x Heart of Darkness
1x Ancient Vile
1x Symbol of Power

- When you exit the Mausoleum, walk down the road and enter
the shrine it leads to.

- SMALL SHRINE

Note: Halfway through, you'll see three buttons. Push the
first two to get through.

- After exiting the small shrine find the peasants who
murdered you and sent them to hell.

- When you killed every last one of them, Mortanius tells
you that they weren't the cause of your death. Now you have
to find your answers at the 9 pillars.
On your way to the 9 pillars, you'll come across the town of
Ziegstuhl.

- At you arrival at the 9 pillars, a scene follows where you
are told to find and KILL Nupraptor in order to forfill
your quest. So now up to Nupraptor.

- On your way to Nupraptor's retreat you'll find the batform
and two dungeons (don't forget to activate the landmark
where you get the batform).

- Use the lupine form to climb your way up the hills. The
road will split eventually. Go left first. You'll come
across a cave of spirit forges, where you can get a relic
after sacrificing blood. It's not very important, but check
it out, because it's a secret. Walk on and enable the
landmark.

- Now go back and go right. Walk on and you'll pass a big
shrine.

- ENERGY BOLT SHRINE

Spells: Energy Bolt
Items : 1x Symbol of Power
1x Ancient Vile

- After getting the Energy Bolt spell move on to the town of
Nachtholm. You can't enter the town, because three small
boulders block your way. No problem, just change into
lupine and walk a bit back, jump on the hill, enter the
cave and drink from the Blood of Aegis. These fountains are
located throughout Nosgoth giving you a special power
(strenght, rain resistance etc.). Now you can push the
boulders away and enter Nachtholm.

- Explore the village and walk north. There you'll find a
cave with another bloodfountain, which makes you immune to
rain.

- Again the road will split. Left leads to the town of
Steinchencr`e. Right leads to a cave (come back later), and
a passage, which you cannot enter yet and a passage to the
left leads to a landmark (both roads come together).

- First go to Steinchencr`e. Talk to the lunetick in the
upperright area of the town. He will tell you you need
a disguise in order to talk to ordinairy people.

- Now take the roed to the right and activate the landmark
(2nd passage to the right). Go back and head north.

- Left you will see a secret area which you cannot enter
yet, so go right to the gypsy camp. Enter the orange tent
and obtain the disguise form.

- Now head north to Vasserbhnde. From this city, you can fly
to Nupraptor's retreat. Go southwest instead and exit left.
Enter the house and open the doors by turning the switch.
Go outside and head north trough the now-opend door.
Fight your way to the two caves and enter the second cave.
You will get to a 'slow time' item. Now go to the other

couldn't enter at first, but don't rush. They will come
later.

- You will automatically fly to the pillars. There you'll
obtain your second quest: kill Malec.

- Go north of Vasserbhnde and smash the rocks with your mace.
Move on and enter the cave you passed. There you'll find a
bloodfountain, which gives you quicker magic recovery.

- Go outside and follow the road (south-west is a secret
area). You'll soon be entering Coorhagen-your hometown,
where a plague has broken out.
