Level Up Your 1st Possessed Weapon

Possessed weapons are very rare drops from enemies or loots from chests. You can level them up to five times by “feeding” or sacrificing various equipment to them. Apparently, scythes and high level equipment give the most experience. The possessed weapon can inherit some of the abilities of the sacrificed items so carefully look at the green properties of the weapon you're going to sacrifice; if it took several equipment, you'll only be able to select one of those properties to inherit or opt to upgrade an existing trait.

Defeat the Guardian

This is the final boss fight in the main quest “Heart of the Mountain”. Refer to the strategies below:

For the first part of the battle, you'll be riding Despair. Run around and wait for the guardian to smash its hammer down. Before it hits you, charge away to avoid getting damaged. Use this chance to manually aim with Redemption and shoot at the shadowbombs stuck on the Guardian's arm. The explosion will temporarily weaken the guardian and bring one of its heartstones within reach. Switch to Deathgrip and grab the heartstone to pull yourself towards it; attack it like crazy afterward.

Against the towering stone


Once that arm is severed, the Guardian will now shoot a large, homing spike ball. Shoot it with Redemption until its energy bar is down. Once it stops and floats in the air, quickly run towards the Guardian and lure the ball towards the Guardian's legs to weaken him. Look for the reachable heartstone then pull yourself towards it using deathgrip. Repeat the process until the Guardian is weakened. Watch the following scenes, and the mission will be completed after this battle.

Taking down the mountain
