BtB 2015 - City of Sands

Post by snork » 12 Oct 2015 12:38

Hej,

My Lara found the exit from the maze, and that brings her back to the level's beginning, but sadly without any keys or such in her backpack. :?
Should I have found something useful in the maze, other than ambrosia and Happy/Sad-Masks ? Or should Lara "convince" Pierre to hand over any keys or whatever else he might possess ?
I decided to not shoot him, as I feared that might mess things up. :thinking:

There is a door waiting for a yellow key, another closed door whith keyhole where Pierre is standing around, and the one with the big skulls, assumedly needing some red gem or so.
-------------------

EDIT : OK, so I replayed from the start, this time I observed Pierre a little bit closer and decided he moves a lot like a Troop, so probably safe to shoot at. :D
And yes, he had a key for Lara, so I can continue.

But now I am out of ideas what to do. The platform to the right seems to be the closest thing, but it is out of reach. :?

I used flares, but saw no "invisible" platforms. Found no shimmy crack, and the bottom is too deep down.

I could jump to that platform right, maybe line up more straight? Hang from the side, pull up and ONLY roll, then do the run jump and grab at the last moment. It is the way you HAVE to go IMO

Just checked, it is indeed a simple run jump with grab... nothing fancy

I tried again and she would not, tried again and - it worked. And now repeatedly so.
Odd. I have no idea why it would not not work out before. :blank:

thank you.

This is the first level I picked from this year's BtB set. From what I've seen in the title sequence there are nice objects and textures. From what I've seen in this level so far, I h've got to say that I really like Lara's aparel. And there's goats. Cool. 8)

Well, it seems I'm stuck right at the beginning of the level. I used a sacred key and found a revolver. Now what do I do?

oops, read that wrong, you already used that sacred key.

There is a well-hidden crawlspace to look out for.
It is on the left side where a sand slide blocks the way. but I think that was a sheep ? a really aggressive one, though.

Right, thanks!

Now I've made my way through the maze. I found a set of masks and placed it in the receptacle next to the exit, which led me right back into the starting section. I cannot shake the feeling that I've missed something in the maze though. I only got a torch and some troubling memories concerning dark places out of it...

I am going to look in on Pierre just now. Should I pay the maze another visit afterwards?

Edit: Right, now that Pierre is out of the picture, Lara's been able to make a little progress. There was an ornate bronze key in the village, but I can't seem to find an ornate bronze keyhole to go with it. It wouldn't be back in the maze, would it? :anxious:

:D for me it was the same - always worried what I might have missed in the maze, and only then did I take care of Pierre. :lol:

anyways - go back to where Pierre was, there is a closed door on the upper floor.

Thanks! Now Lara got herself another artefact that is both powerful and shiny to add to her collection. Nice. :2thumbsup:

Seem To Be Stuck Here.
The 2 Doors at Lara's Right (2 Buildings) Are Both Closed.
One Door Needs A Key.

Hej,
back to where Pierre was - there on the upper floor is the door for the key in Lara's backpack.

Ah - OK.
So the building on the left is open, Lara picked up a lyre ?

That has to be placed with the white staute of a woman between here and where Pierre was.
Just before where the first boulders happened. The blue door on the right side should then open.

Seems that I have missed a key somewhere.
After defeating the enemies and getting the 4 items from the center of the room:

I exit this building and am at the grassy area that leads to several buildings.
One of the buildings has a long ladder climb to the top and then there is a closed door.
Wheres the key for this door?

Thanks
