4 Earth Cystals? I think I have 5 of them right now. :? Also, I just found thw two occult scrolls and placed them into their respective places to open the door. I left temporarily the game there. Very dark level, with very few flares in the inventory. The author here should have done it other thing, doesn't he? :-P

I have 8 water crystals, so it seems likely that there are eight of each of the crystals. (edit: oops, into next level, have 12 water crystals, and 10 fire crystals. This is too many. Are they used for anything?)

There may be six Secret Sapphires. I don't know what shooting the bones does. There is still an unopened door back near the beginning, and a hidden block passage which hasn't opened back in a nearby beginning room.

I shot a skeleton with a grenade gun and it left a water crystal, so maybe earlier skeletons also had crystals, but I just shotgun blasted them over the edge into a chasm.

(I already added the extra flares at the beginning :wink: )

I found and area where you can use 8 sapphires. I have 3 scrolls but can't find the 4th. I also remember before I got to this area, there was a door that never opened? This was after moving the pillar to open the big block door after the slide down.
Is anybody else as confused as I am???

I just restarted from the beginning.
When you push the pillar to open the first block door, I ran to the last room where the pedestal with the crystal is and the door was open.

I tried for more than ten minutes, and it seems impossible to get the water sapphire. In your pic right above, I think that way also leads to another sapphire, but never opened that block, either.

Anyway you have some fun climbing ahead, then fun going down.

I don't think shooting the shatterable bones does anything. As far as the elemental crystals are concerned, I honestly don't know how many are in any level. :hammer: I added so many in each level and didn't record the amount. They don't do anything, they are just for bragging rights.

Yes, that is an un-opened block. It's the exit from a room with a Secret Sapphire.

Uh... does anybody else need my help getting through my level?

Edit: But I won't tell you how to get the Secret Sapphires, though. They're just that... a secret.

I can't seem to get up to either of these areas. Any hints on getting up there?

EDIT: Forum effect strikes again. I got up there through a different area.

Here, I did the run for you. The idea is to sprint part of the way, then, run normally and jump over the sloped two parts of the floor totally and completely. Don't come to a stop or land on the back part and slide down (You'll lose too much time.) Think of them as big, stone, hurdles. You have to clear them both front and back with a jump. It can be done, your jump needs to be just as Lara's foot touches the sloped part of the floor. (I had a person from France E-mail me with the same problem.)
