BtB2016 - Secrets of a Lost City

Post by Treeble » 19 Apr 2017 23:10

Is the timed run up the poleropes to the flaming scimitar pickup the actual way to get it? Or am I getting ahead of myself here? I hear the flame reignite halfway up the second pole... :anxious:

Ah, no. You have to use the poleropes to get to the top first, then find a different way down, and then go up again via that second route after pulling that timed switch.

In the enigma of the 4 rb, is he obliged to lower the 4? I drop 3 but it's a real headache :bigcry:

In theory, you have to lower all 4 raising blocks. In practice, you could probably get away without lowering the one between the third and fourth switches, but I haven't tried it that way, and don't know if it's even possible to lower the other three but leave that one raised.

It's a secret. You have to find a way to take all the items before the spikes rise.

Okay I know how to recover it but too late I already passed the area and I arrived in the temple.

Edit: finished, many traps like in POP and a key Arhiman :)

I'm a bit confused right now. I'm in the room which I could access after placing the two first challenge stars. Made the crazy jumping sequence with the squishing blocks and moving spike walls, but it's in the next step where I'm stuck. One wraith suddenly approaches as I go further in the room and stepping on that different tile opens a timed door which seems to be extremely hard for me to beat (unless I'm a noob with the swinging ropes, and that's what it appears to be). I'm supposed to do the jump in one go? If so, any tip on how to make Lara can jump further and without hitting the already low ceiling that makes things even harder?

Thanks. :)

Hmm, I don't recall any problems in this part. Step on the timed tile, run to the rope, wait till Lara has her legs around it, slide down, then press sprint as hard as you can when she swings back, and you should get to the door in time.

I did it. I was forgetting the fact she can cancel the starting animation right after jumping to the rope by pressing the Sprint button, so now I could slide down quickly enough and prepare myself to perform the jump.

I was blind to think this had to be done in one go, meaning her to jump after grabbing that rope. :blush:

Thank you kindly!

Great. :2thumbsup:

For an expert's challenge, this is not all that difficult. :-P I found the second one far more tough.

I know this is one of two keys to open a secret door (I got another in a crawlspace behind a moving stone.). Where are other secrets?
(Note: Finished but got only one secret which I don't know how I got it. There too many time runs which make me crazy cause I don't like time run.)
I may get older, but my heart for Lara is always young!

The two first challenge stars will give you access to a final secret, which is another challenge. If you don't get the two first, you won't get to this special secret (which is the Vizier's Staff by the way).

The key to get the first secret is positioning. If you make Lara's feet stay right on the items, you'll have time to get the star and quickly stand back before the spikes rise.

Drop to the sloping ledge below, keep jump pressed so that you bounce back and forth between two slopes and hold down right so that you inch closer to the alcove and eventually land in it.
