Blood Omen: Legacy Of Kain strategy


General Tips:
When you enter a new town, search every house. There you can find nifty items.

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.

If you are almost dead, use a heart of darkness while you are alive instead of when you are dead. That way you will get more blood.


Spells:
Sanctuary
This spell returns Kain to his crypt. Use this spell when you are 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 is not 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. Even to poison. I recommend using this spell very often. It's very useful when fighting bosses, and enemies with poisonous attacks

Inspire Hate
Causes enemies to attack themselves instead of Kain. It can be very useful when lots of enemies are around you.

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 him. Be careful though. You must not use this spell on enemies with green blood. 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 separates 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:

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, stripping the skin of their bodies

Implode
Causes an enemy to shrink, crushing every bone in its body.

Slow Time
Causes enemies to move more slowly.

Font of Putrescence
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 five interesting deaths.

Anti-Toxin
Cures Kain of green blood, which is poisonous.


Armor
Iron Armor
This is the armor equipped at the start of the game.. It has no special powers, but offers the most protection against damage.

Bone Armor
This armor is not very strong, but because you look like a skeleton, lower undead lifeforms will not attack you that fast.

Chaos Armor
This armor also is not 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 colored blood!

Wraith Armor
At night, this is the strongest armor. In daylight, it's useless.

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 strike one time. Hit the button twice and Kain will strike two times. Hit it several times and he will strike several times. If you go berserk on the button, Kain will also go berserk. You cannot 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 have burned your enemies, you can feed on their blood. My favorite weapon is definitely the flame sword. Although you cannot drain blood, but if you play well, you will not need to.

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.

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 cannot 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 attain.

Mooncaves
These cave only open when the moon is full. When dawn breaks, they close. When you are walking in a mooncave and the sun is coming up, it closes when you leave the cave. Locations of Mooncaves:

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.

Dark Diary

Throughout the game there are several FMV sequences that are displayed when an important event has taken place. Listed below are the movies in chronological order. All the movies can be seen in the 'Dark Diary' section in the game menu.

MovieDescription Length (min)
IntroThis movie first shows Vorador defeating Malek and therefor Malek will be damned. Then Ariel, the love of Nupraptor is murdered and the Pillars begin to crack. 2.35
1You are dead and are offered a chance for vengeance. Foolish as you are you accept it without hesitation. 1.19
2You arrive at the pillars and find Ariel's ghost flying around. You learn that the pillars are corrupted by a traitor and that you must restore them. Of course not for Nosgoth, but for yourself. 1.30
3This movie is in the Oracle. There you see an old man. You seek answers and tell him you want answers. To that the man asks for the questions. You ask him who Malek is and how you can defeat him. Then you are told to seek out Vorador who has defeated Malek once. 1.40
4At Vorador's Dining table you realize Vorador is on your side, because you are a vampire. He tells you great stories, about how he defeated Malek and finally gives you his ring. With this you can summon Vorador whenever you need him. 3.40
5You summon Vorador to let him fight against Malek. Bane and Dejoule flee and you run after them. There will be a fight between Malek and Vorador, leaving no clue of who will win. 0.57
6You enter the castle of Willendorf. There you find King Otmar. He tells you about how he lost his daughter's soul to Elzevir the dollmaker and that he is willing to give his kingdom to anyone who brings her back to life. 1.39
7As you restore the life of King Otmar's daughter you refuse to have his kingdom, but ask for his army instead. Now you are going to fight the Nemesis' army 0.36
8You traveled back in time and witness a speech from Mobius, who also traveled back in time. He is encouraging the people to go hunt vampires. 0.48
9As you walk to the event, you see Vorador being executed. Then you are attacked by the peasants 1.00
10This is the smallest movie. There is a small conversation between you and Mobius. After that, you chop off his head to restore the pillar of time. 0.31
11As you arrive at the pillars, you hear two voices. They are the voice of Mortanius (sounds familiar) and the voice of Anarcroth. You hear that Mortanius was the one who murdered you and brought you back to life. The quarrel between the two ends up into a fight with Mortanius as a winner. You walk away from the pillar and tell Mortanius that you must kill him. 1.33
12After Mortanius is destroyed in his normal form, he joins with the Dark Entity (very smoothly). Now the final battle will take place. 0.46

Blood Omen: Legacy Of Kain solution

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


Introduction

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 to get revenge on the murderers. Of course you accept it and return as a vampire to get revenge.

The game will restart, with your character as a vampire.

On your way to the pillars, you will come across the town of Ziegstuhl.

At you arrival at the pillars, a scene follows, where you are told to find and kill Nupraptor in order to fulfill your quest.

On your way to Nupraptor's retreat, you will find the bat form and two dungeons (do not forget to activate the landmark where you get the bat form).

Use the lupine form to climb your way up the hills. The road will split eventually. Go left first. You will 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. Move forward and you will pass a big shrine.

You cannot enter the town, because three small boulders block your way. Change into lupine form and walk back a bit. Jump on the hill, enter the cave, and drink from the Blood of Ages. These fountains are located throughout Nosgoth giving you a special power (strength, rain resistance, etc.). Now you can push the boulders away and enter Nachtholm.

Explore the village and walk north. There you will find a cave with another blood fountain, which makes you immune to rain.

Again the road will split. To the left is the town of Steinchencr`e. To the right is a cave (to be explored later), a passage (which you cannot enter yet), and another passage to the left leading to a landmark (both roads meet).

First go to Steinchencr`e.


Steinchencr`e

Talk to the lunatic in the upper right area of the town. He will tell you that a disguise is needed in order to talk to ordinary people.

Now take the road to the right and activate the landmark (second passage to the right). Go back and head north.

To the left you will see a secret area, which you cannot enter yet. Go right to reach the gypsy camp. Enter the orange tent and obtain the disguise form. Now head north to Vasserbhnde.


Vasserbhnde

From this city, you can fly to Nupraptor's retreat. Go southwest instead and exit to the left.

Enter the house and open the doors by turning the switch.

Go outside and head north through the now opened 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 cave leading to Nupraptor.

Go north of Vasserbhnde and smash the rocks with your mace. Move on and enter the nearby cave. There you will find a blood fountain, which gives you quicker magic recovery.

Go outside and follow the road (southwest is a secret area). You will soon be entering Coorhagen, your hometown, where a plague is spreading.

You will be teleported 50 years back in time. Kill the man and watch the scene.
