    1. Use the abilities obtained from Hades’ Souls to clear out the enemy wave that appears and move through the next doorway that opens, then approach the sculpture across from you to encounter the monster that emerges with an enormous hammer.
    2. Roll sideways repeatedly each time the enemy’s hammer strikes the ground and move back in with combination attacks to inflict damage, then stay on the move after the guard jumps straight into the air and wait for him to land again before continuing your assault.
    3. Continue the previous line of attack to eliminate this enemy and the other one that springs to life during the battle, then activate rage to finish battling these guards and press the indicated buttons to defeat them for good with their own hammers.
    4. Approach the bust against the wall and pull it backwards to place the statue within the alcove at the back left corner of the room, then jump to the next ladder above to climb upwards and land on the second story ledge.
    5. Read the memorandum from Castor on the left and proceed back towards the right to move through the open doorway in the corner, then pull the nearby lever to descend on the elevator platform and climb the steps at the bottom to read about the Tombs of Past Oracles at the top.
    6. Navigate the corridor ahead to activate a short sequence in the next room above and jump to the platform in front of you, then use the swing point above to pull yourself forward until the ceiling collapses.
    7. After the platform crashes to the ground below, proceed forward between the narrow ledges ahead and double-jump off the end to land on the second platform.
    8. Use the next swing point above to bring the ceiling down again and ascend the incline in front of you to jump off it at the top, then grab the wall swing through the window below and open the chests on the other side.
    9. Proceed down the hallway ahead to enter the room at the end and pass through the green smoke to cause a deterioration effect across the area, then retreat towards the upper right corner and move past the gate that opens.
    10. Pass through the next plume of green smoke to cause another deterioration effect and jump across the broken ledges around the corner to reach the staircase at the end, then climb the steps to kick open the doors at the top and use grapple attacks to eliminate the electrified enemies.
    11. Approach the upper right corner of the room to pull the lever and pass through the green smoke that appears to cause another deterioration effect, then return to the previous lever and smash through the adjacent wall to open the chests on the other side.
    12. Cross to the left side of the room to approach the indicated rubble and pull down the column above, then use the debris to climb up the overhead ledges and move right at the top.
    13. Jump to the platform hanging above the center of the room and use the swing points ahead to pull yourself forward, then transfer to the ledge in front of you and collect Altheia’s Charm.
    14. Turn left to pull the next lever in the corner and pass through the doorway that opens nearby, then jump across the gap ahead to turn right on the other side and continue along the ledge to reach the green smoke at the end.
    15. Pass through the green smoke and drop to the ground below to eliminate a surrounding wave of enemies, then push the nearby bust statue onto the wooden platform that falls during the deterioration and ride it back to the ledge above.
    16. Push the sculpture towards the right to pass through the green smoke again and continue moving the bust around the ledge to break down the deteriorating wall at the end, then shove the statue all the way forward until it falls off the edge.
    17. Drop down after the bust to push it towards the front of the room and place the statue on the circular floor panel, then pass through the green smoke on the right to cause another deterioration effect and jump on top of the sculpture to reach the center platform hanging above again.
    18. Use the swing points ahead to break open the giant hourglass and activate the next cut scene to complete this level.

    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.
