Hidden amulet

Go to the first Sewers dungeon, one of the randomly generated dungeons on Earth, located before the first boss. At the end of the dungeon, you may find a message written in white paint on one of the walls “Only the Penitent Man Shall Pass.” This is a reference to the Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade movie. This is the first trial Indiana Jones must face in the Grail Temple at the end of the movie. To solve the trap, simply crouch to make an illusory wall disappear. Crawl under to find the rare “Leto’s Amulet” item. Equip it to lower your Armor Encumbrance by 40% and Stamina Cost by 10%.

Secret Void armor

Reach Rhom and explore until you locate the Monolyth building. Check the walls behind the building entrance to find a series of 10 symbols there are five different symbols marked in chalk. This will be the solution to the randomly generated Monolyth puzzle. It is recommended to take a picture, so the player will remember the solution. The first 9 symbols marked on the wall each match a direction. The 10th final symbol is the last spot the player will need to stand on.

Enter the Monolyth and look on the stone in the center. This stone will show which direction each symbol is pointing. Follow the directions and step on all 10 symbols. When the floor panels sink and the player gets all 10 panels correct, the trap will be disabled, and the center stone will lower. Go down below and follow the path to a kiosk where they can purchase the Void armor for 500 (Helmet), 1,250 (Armor), and 750 (Boots).
