    1. Use the oath stone and amulet to help you eliminate the next cyclops with multiple combination strikes, then clear out the flying creatures with grapple attacks and approach the wheel near the top right corner of the room to start rotating it.
    2. Following the next short sequence, step onto the platform you just pulled over to ride it across the gap and turn left on the other side to climb up onto the next ledge ahead.
    3. Pull the nearby crank all the way back to open the door in front of you and activate the oath stone to hold it in place, then drop into the shaft to land on the furnace below and approach the wheel in the lower right corner to start turning it.
    4. Pass through the next doorway that opens to return to the previous room and approach the object on the opposite side to pull it backwards, then move the object beside the previous wheel and rotate the gear to start heating up the coals.
    5. Push the pot of hot coals back to their original starting position and use your amulet to light the stove, then watch the next sequence unfold and pull the coals out to move them inside the opening directly beside you.
    6. Rotate the nearby wheel to dump the liquid on top of the coals and move them towards the furnace you landed on earlier, then use your amulet to light the furnace and watch another sequence unfold.
    7. Return to the previous room and use special attacks with the help of your shadow clone to clear the surrounding area of enemies, then turn the wheel to bring the platform over to you and ride it across the gap.
    8. Make your way back to the furnace’s entrance and use grapple-throws to eliminate the flying enemies above, then jump onto the platform in the upper right corner of this area and wait for the door across from you to swing open.
    9. Jump to the open furnace door in front of you and quickly transfer to the next one above before it closes, then use the last door on the left to reach the railing above and head towards the right across it to climb onto the elevator platform at the top.
    10. Ride to the next area above and jump the gap in front of you when the wall of liquid metal is moving in the opposite direction, then follow behind it slowly until you can pass by safely.
    11. Clear the next gap to attach to the grapple point above and head towards the left across the wooden beams to climb onto the conveyer belt, then roll to the left against the direction of the moving floor to reach the platform at the end.
    12. Spin the indicated gear to activate a short sequence and make your way back across the stalled conveyor belt to encounter another grip of enemies, then use grapple throws to toss the hostiles into the surrounding lava showers and finish clearing the immediate area.
    13. Continue moving forward to jump onto the next available platform in the background and drop onto another one below, then transfer to a third platform ahead as the one you’re on rises and step onto the spinning turbine beside it by walking in the opposite direction of its rotation.
    14. Wait for the turbine to ascend before jumping onto the next platform above and attach to the overhead swing point to reach the Shoulder of Apollo.

    Ive having an issue on finding out where to stand to use the amulet it doesn’t want to decay anything it just shoots a beam. what should i do?

    C.B – The Decay and Heal power is to be used for making or breaking objects to be used by Kratos. You can heal a broken bridge or break some object to be used in the game. As it is the use of this power is indicated on the top right. At times you might have to use this power just partially for your use. try it out its fun and believe me later in the game the effects of heal are amazing.

    Sam- yes it is at times confusing how to shoot the amulet but the easiest way to use it that when ever you will press L2 the object that is to be shot at will glow very clearly, so till the time you do not find a object glowing bright and clear you need to move around and find the right place, sometimes it might be too close to the object and sometimes it can be far off.

    Just platinumed it today. It wasn’t too hard but as always there were a couple of fights that were pretty aggravating. The Trial of Archimedes was actually so hard even on the easier settings that it received a patch, though I think they made a mistake by patching it on Titan mode since the really hardcore players perhaps understandably think they’ve been given unwanted help. I though was grateful as it was difficult enough even WITH the patch. On the flip side, it’s a real shame that there was no Challenge of the Gods/Zeus/Hades/whatever this time around, as that would have been the perfect place to put such a difficult task and gamers who just wanted to finish the story wouldn’t have had to do it if they didn’t want to, while hardcore fans would have still leapt at it.
