Black World Tendency Events in Latria

  • In Latria, it is impossible to go from 3-2 back to 3-1, without going by The Nexus. Most players will want to defeat both the NPC Black Phantom and the Primeval Demon in one go, to avoid achieving Black World Tendency more than once. It is therefore advisable to start from 3-1 and take out Black Phantom Lord Rydell first, then move into 3-2 to deal with the Primeval Demon.
  • Sodden Ring (Remake only) Behind a pillar near Prisoner Horde in the depths of Upper Latria 3 - 2. Requires Pure Black World Tendency.

      It's minor, but could cause some confusion. In the swamp area, you right this passage when getting to the first fog door in the swamp:

      "Don't go into the fog door yet, there's plenty of loot to obtain still. Go back to where you fought the three Giant Man Centipede and keep going forward. You can loot x4 Augite of Guidance."

      The place where you fight three Giant Man Centipedes is two feet from the fog door. This means the two Giant Man Centipedes and the small one, where you first get onto the wooden platform when you first reach the swamp area (if you follow what is written).

        I like how it almost looks like you're deep below the surface of the ocean. They should've gone even harder with that concept, tho.

          After killing the prisoners upstairs this says to “take the elevator to the beating heart”. You do not take the elevator there, you continue upstairs
