Escape from the dungeon

We begin our adventure in the Tower of London - The Man with the Guardian Spirit | Main missions - Main missions - NiOh Game Guide

We begin our adventure in the Tower of London. The initial phase of this mission consists of a short introductionary sequence which details the controls used in the game. Your cell is also a home to your guardian spirit, whose mission is to show us the way forward.

The cell door is locked, but you quickly notice that one of the walls is weakened. Perform a strong attack, and the wall will crumble. You can now proceed to the nearby cell, and then to the corridor. Try to complete the whole sequence without being noticed by the guard. If you destroy the wall and stay in your cell, the guard will quickly notice what is going on, and will begin to attack you. You can face him using your bare hands, but the fight would be much easier if you’ve managed to find a weapon.

You can see the guard’s route through the grate - The Man with the Guardian Spirit | Main missions - Main missions - NiOh Game Guide?

You can see the guard’s route through the grate. Smash the wall and wait until the guard appears from the right. Then, enter the neighboring cell and proceed to the corridor. The guard won’t notice what is going on, so you are free to go right and enter the room at the end of the corridor. There you’ll find a chest containing a sword and guard’s boots.

Equip the found items and return to the corridor to face the guard. The enemies inhabiting this area are rather slow, so you don’t need to use dodges to be able to emerge unscathed. Control the distance using the analog sticks, and take notice of your enemy’s range, as well as your own. Once you’ve won, search the remaining cells, which are now available thanks to the key you’ve found on the guard.

The way forward leads to the upper levels of the prison - The Man with the Guardian Spirit | Main missions - Main missions - NiOh Game Guide

The way forward leads to the upper levels of the prison. Enter the passageway found at the end of the corridor, and use the stairs to ascend. The first chamber on the right contains a chest with Medicine. Take the item and use the inventory menu to create an item shortcut, allowing you to use the item on the fly. Look underneath the switchback stairs to find another chest, containing the next part of guard’s armor. Use the aforementioned staircase to continue.

The Shrine and a shortcut

The staircase will lead you straight to the bridge that can be seen on the screenshot - The Man with the Guardian Spirit | Main missions - Main missions - NiOh Game Guide

The staircase will lead you straight to the bridge that can be seen on the screenshot. You’ll encounter two enemies. The one patrolling the bridge will engage you quickly, while the second one has a ranged weapon and will stay behind and fire away until you manage to approach him. Once you manage to get into the melee range, he’ll draw a sword. It should be mentioned that ranged enemies are more vulnerable – try to cover the distance between you and your enemy as quickly as you can.

The way forward leads us to the room shown on the screenshot - The Man with the Guardian Spirit | Main missions - Main missions - NiOh Game Guide

The way forward leads us to the room shown on the screenshot. There is a guard room on the right containing two enemies. One of the guards leaves the room from time to time to make a round, so wait until he leaves the chamber and eliminate the guard who stays inside. Remember to avoid drawing the fight to the corridor, as the second guard may join in, forcing you to fight against two enemies at once. Look around the room – the chest contains additional elements of guard set. Once you eliminated both guards, cross through the hole in the wall and use the stairs to access the upper level of the dungeon.

You can ascend straight to the second floor, but take some time and enter the first one - The Man with the Guardian Spirit | Main missions - Main missions - NiOh Game Guide

You can ascend straight to the second floor, but take some time and enter the first one. You should notice a Shrine (screenshot). Among other uses, it works as a checkpoint – in case of death you’ll begin in this area. You should know that every retry resurrects all enemies appearing from that point, so don’t let your guard down.

The floor also contains a large gate, and a chest found on its right side. The chest contains a spear, which is very useful in the further parts of the game, but you can equip it right away. The gate is closed for now, so ignore it. The chamber nearby contains two enemies. Similarly to the previous encounter, one guard patrols the chamber, while the second one stands still. Try to lure them out one by one, and eliminate them outside of their chamber. The room with the columns contains a chest with an axe and medicine. Now you can proceed to the second floor – use the same staircase that led you to the Shrine.

You’ll notice a guard room on the left. The room is empty, but there is a chest inside that is worth canvassing. Now you should hear a conversation – the voices are coming from a locked chamber. You can wait for the dialogue to end, or simply proceed further.

This floor is patrolled by a lone guard. Aside from him, make sure to search the area, as there are two chests nearby. Then, use the staircase opposite to you to reach the area behind the large gate next to the Shrine which we’ve encountered earlier. The floor below contains a vast chamber that is guarded by a single guard. Defeat him, open the gate, and return to the stairs. Proceed to the lower level of the prison.

Courtyard and the Tower

A chest can be found near the entrance to the lower level of the prison, containing the next part of the guard’s outfit. You can go straight to the courtyard, or defeat the enemies found in the chamber to receive access to two chests guarded by them. Proceed to the courtyard.

Defeat the patrolling guard and take a look inside the chest that can be found underneath the wooden stairs which you’ve used to access the area - The Man with the Guardian Spirit | Main missions - Main missions - NiOh Game Guide

Defeat the patrolling guard and take a look inside the chest that can be found underneath the wooden stairs which you’ve used to access the area. Now, assume the position seen on the screenshot above and turn right. You’ll encounter two enemies, one armed with a distance weapon. The melee fighter will engage you, so lure him to a location where the ranged one won’t be able to hit you. Defeat them and search the chest that they’ve guarded.

Proceed to the other part of the courtyard, and descend down the stairs - The Man with the Guardian Spirit | Main missions - Main missions - NiOh Game Guide

Proceed to the other part of the courtyard, and descend down the stairs. You’ll encounter another guard. Defeat him and choose one of two ways. The gate to the left[1] leads to two enemies that may prove to be too difficult to handle right now. Go forward and defeat the guard found in the corridor shown on the screenshot[2]. Make sure to search the chest[3] before you proceed forward.

Defeating the guard leads to a new open area, guarded by a lone guard who shouldn’t pose any difficulties. Once you cross through the corridor, you should see a wooden scaffolding on the left that you need to access. Also, there is a group of heavily armored knights standing on the battlements found on the right side of the new courtyard. Climb onto the scaffolding and enter the short tower.

The tower contains a new Shrine - use it to save your progress. Now you need to decide whether you want to proceed in the direction of the boss, or take a short detour to further boost your equipment and statistics.

Moreover, you can use the staircase inside the tower to ascend two stories up, or to access one floor below. The lower floor contains some Amrita and equipment. The floor above the one with the Shrine contains an arena with two enemies, including one heavily armored. The way further leads to the wall which leads straight to the boss. You can also ascend one floor higher – you’ll find some smaller items and be able to make a drop attack at one of the guards (if he is still alive).

You’ll be facing Derrick the Executioner at the end of this level - check the dedicated chapter of the guide to find tips on how to defeat him.
