Cheats, Tips and Strategy

Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include using abilities and what Spirit Shard to get. As well as these hints and tips we also have a mini-guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:

Get the Spirit Smash Ability

Once you have acquired your basic melee attack you will be able to purchase one ability at a discounted price. Make sure that the ability you choose is Spirit Smash as you will need this hammer of light to deal heavy damage against enemies and crack open secret walls. Check out our How to get Abilities guide to find out what they are and where to get them.

Get the Triple-Jump Spirit Shard

Not long after you have your first ability you will meet a merchant who sells Spirit Shards. The one you should purchase is triple-jump as it will enable you to clear sections of the game considerably easier an allow you to access several areas and secrets early. Check out our Spirit Shards guide to find out what they are and how to obtain them.

Do Baur's Reach First

After a few hours of gameplay you will be given the option to tackle three areas - Baur's Reach, Luma Pools, and Mouldwood Depths in whatever order you want. Select Baur's Reach first as doing so will enable you to unlock an ability called Light Burst which you will help you out a lot in Luma Pools. The area you should save until last is Mouldwood Depths as spiders live there.

Buy Lupo's Maps

Always invest in Lupo's maps when you have the opportunity. This NPC who is a cartographer sells a map of whichever region you are in for several hundred Spirit Light orbs which will not only give you a full outline of the region and collectibles within it but tells you where to explore next for upgrades.

Use Different Abilities

Unlike the first game in the series Ori is now able to equip various abilities. Ori starts of with Spirit Edge (a sword) and Spirit Arc (a bow). As you earn more Spirit Light, you can unlock Spirit Star (a boomerang), Spike (a spear), and Spirit Smash (a hammer/mace) by talking to Opher the merchant. Becoming familiar with all of these different abilities will improve your chances in combat shrines. Check out our Abilities Sold by Opher guide to find out more about them.
