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





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


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


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


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.

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





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




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


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


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




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


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.




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
