Reach the herbalist's forest

After leaving the city, follow the path leading towards the farm buildings in the forest - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

After leaving the city, follow the path leading towards the farm buildings in the forest. Here you will find the first workbench - it is for upgrading equipment.

There are 4 categories of upgrades available and each category has 3 upgrades to unlock. Each upgrade requires Pieces and 1 or more Tools. You can find all these items in the game world as loot.

We described the topic of upgrading Amicia's gear in more detail on the Character progression page. There you will also learn how to remove the requirement for Tools when creating new upgrades.

Before you go further, explore the building to the right of the workbench - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Before you go further, explore the building to the right of the workbench. You will find a locked gate, but it can be opened. Position yourself on the side and use the slingshot on the gate(above image). You will unlock access to Souvenirs - A Grave.

To advance further, you must descend the ladder - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

To advance further, you must descend the ladder. Open the door and you will reach an area with rats. Use Ignifer, reach the opening in the wall of the hut and quickly eliminate the enemy with a spear.

Take and light up a stick to move on.

You will get near an abandoned church - the area is patrolled by new enemies - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

You will get near an abandoned church - the area is patrolled by new enemies. You can evade them (there are crates for distraction) or use Exstinguis on the torches to expose the enemies to the rats.

Also use Ignifer to light torches and baskets to create a path for yourself.

Save the herbalist

You will reach a herbalist accompanied by a guard - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

You will reach a herbalist accompanied by a guard. Fulfilling the goal of the mission is not possible, because the herbalist must die. This will happen if you either stay put (the guard will kill him after the conversation) or if you distract the guard (the herbalist will then be devoured by rats). Fortunately, this will not cause you any problems.

Reach the herbalist's forest - continued

Find and rescue Lucas

Lucas is being held in a house on a hill - this is the far left corner of the enemy-occupied location - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Lucas is being held in a house on a hill - this is the far left corner of the enemy-occupied location.

On the way to Lucas, it is best to hide in the tall grass and avoid unnecessary confrontations.

There are stairs leading to the upper level, but it is safer to climb the ledge shown in the picture, because you will immediately enter tall grass.

In the new area, we recommend sneaking through the buildings on the left - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

In the new area, we recommend sneaking through the buildings on the left. Keep moving from one cover to another when it is safe. Alternatively, you can also distract enemies by, for example, hitting toolboxes with rocks.

Ultimately, you must reach the door leading to the barn - see the picture.

You must hurry to save Lucas - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

You must hurry to save Lucas. You can use the slingshot or approach the opponent from behind and use a stealth attack (hold down Square/X on the controller).

Survive the assault

That's not all, as new enemies will begin to appear in the barn - eliminate them in direct confrontations - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

That's not all, as new enemies will begin to appear in the barn - eliminate them in direct confrontations. Shoot them with charged projectiles - you won't miss this way and any regular opponent will die from a single shot.

The first opponent with a shield will appear - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

The first opponent with a shield will appear. You can't kill him with the slingshot and you must keep a safe distance from him.

There are bags in the barn. Shoot a bag with the slingshot when the opponent approaches it.

The guard will be blinded - quickly get behind his back to a strike and eliminate him - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

The guard will be blinded - quickly get behind his back to a strike and eliminate him.

Time for more fights - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 3, Find and rescue Lucas - walkthrough - Chapter 3 - A Burden of Blood - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Time for more fights:

  1. When it comes to standard opponents, use the slingshot;
  2. kill the second opponent with a shield in the same way as the first one - blind him, get behind his back and strike.

The heroes, however, will be captured by the Beast.
