    1. Use the amulet and oath stone to help you clear out the next surrounding wave of enemies, then heal the large chains in the background to activate the next cut scene.
    2. Afterwards, climb onto the ledge beside you to pass through the next doorway ahead and slide directly down the middle of the incline on the other side.
    3. Look for the circular sections of the incline ahead of you and shift towards the right or left to navigate around them safely, then jump off the end to grab the rope above and clear the next pool of lava below.
    4. Land on the other side of the lava pool to continue sliding down the incline and push yourself from side-to-side across the track to avoid falling, then use the swing point ahead to clear another gap and continue your descent to jump back into the The Furnace at the end.
    5. Turn the next two gear wheels ahead to activate a short sequence and ride the surrounding floor to the level above, then use grapple throws to toss any approaching enemies into the nearby fire and repeat this action several times to continue the ascent.
    6. Feed the fire to raise the platform you’re on and stay on the four square-shaped grates to avoid falling through the trap doors that eventually open, then continue tossing enemies into the flames to reach the next level above and finish clearing the area of all remaining hostiles.
    7. Pull the nearby crank all the way backwards to open the door in front of you and use the oath stone to hold it in place, then turn the giant wheel ahead on the right to activate another sequence.
    8. Stay on the two square-shaped grates that have not been consumed by fire and defeat the larger hammer enemies that appear first with the help of the amulet, then toss the smaller creatures into the flames at the center of the platform and continue your ascent.
    9. Look for the preliminary circles of flames that appear on the grates each time you ascend and retreats to the ones that remain untouched, then continue tossing enemies in the center fire until you reach the next level above.
    10. Move through the purple-lit doorway ahead to ascend on the next elevator platform and approach the upper right corner of the ledge at the top, then use your amulet to finish repairing the statue of Apollo and activate a cut scene.
    11. Afterwards, jump on top of the large purple crystal nearby to push the heavy object off of it and eliminate the next wave of enemies that appears with the help of the oath stone.
    12. Push the heavy object against the right-side wall to climb the next ladder above and jump to the conveyor belt across from you to ride it forward, then drop onto the purple crystal at the end and weigh it down with your shadow copy.
    13. Drop back to the ground below and remove your shadow copy to send the purple crystal into the air again, then push the heavy object into the upper left corner of the room to reach the ledge above and pull the lever in front of the laser beam.
    14. Head back towards the right to pull the chain and extend the mechanism beside you, then use the oath stone to place your shadow clone back on top of the purple crystal and drop it into the path of the laser beam below to activate a cut scene.

    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.
