  • Wrath Shard: If you bring up your map, you should see a (more or less) square building. You can only enter through a hole which is located a bit more to the right.

Swim into it and look up. There you go, a nice Champion Artifact.

  • Wrath Shard: Look at your map and you should notice a small island on the Western side. This will be your next destination. Before you're able to claim your treasure, you'll have to fight a new enemy: Wicked K (skeleton with a top hat). He's a lot harder to fight then all other enemies you've encountered so far (except the bosses). On the other hand, if you have enough chaos to activate Chaos Form, he'll be a piece of cake.

Jump into the Portal when the Portal on the rock is on the right side.
  • Artifact - Soldier (20/20): Inside the third tower, go to the back of the room and jump in the water. At the bottom lies the last Soldier Artifact.
  • Artifact - Champion (6/6): When you have activated the third beam, exit the third tower and cross the gap (first guide the beam to the other side). When you enter the next room you'll notice a floating block coming down. Jump into the Shadow Current to reach the platform on the other side. Activate both Portals to get to the next floor. From here you can see the Portal on top of the floating block: activate it. Jump down where the two Portals are and jump right into the one that's still active. There you go: The last of the Artifacts is yours.
  • Lifestone: You will get a full extra Lifestone after defeating Straga.

Eden

  • Abyssal Armor Piece (10/10): After crossing the bridge with the Mask of Shadows, immediately go to the right (into the water). The last Abyssal Armor Piece can be found in the north-east passage behind the waterfall.

Activate the Portal on the ceiling and jump through it with the help of the Shadow Current. Open the chest to grab the last Wrath Shard.
  • Weapon Enhancement: Take the Northern exit of the Scalding Gallow. Continue on until you reach the room with the Chronomancer switch. Activate the Portal and move past the gate. Activate the Portal on the other side of the gate and return to the room with the Chronomancer switch. Raise the gate, flip the Chronomancer switch and jump through the Portal.
