Lords of the Fallen: Guide content

In the first chapter of the guide, you will find our starting tips for Lords of the Fallen. We also describe how Axiom and Umbral work, how to fight enemies correctly, what consequences a character's death has and how to farm vigor.

The second chapter contains answers to the most frequently asked questions. There, we answer how to parry, perform stealth attacks, whether it is possible to pause the game, how to create save points and much more.

A separate chapter is devoted to bosses, i.e. powerful opponents. We divided them into main bosses, who must be killed to move the plot forward, and side bosses, who are just optional enemies. Here you will find information what tactics should be used to kill them quickly, and a list of rewards that you will receive after defeating them.

The last chapter of our guide to Lords of the Fallen is an appendix, where we describe all supported languages as well as the PC system requirements. You'll also find a list of trophies, game editions, and whether the game is available on Game Pass.

Lords of the Fallen: Tips and tricks

  1. Destroy objects and obstacles - you'll encounter a lot of wooden chests and other objects in the game that can be destroyed easily, even by dodging towards them. We recommend destroying objects religiously, as they may leave loot or even lead to secret/additional pathways.
  2. Use Umbral Lamp whenever possible - this is an item received at the very beginning of the gameplay. Thanks to it, you can discover new pathways that initially could seem dead ends, and switch to Umbral world. It also has combat capabilities - you can use it to damage and eliminate opponents. For example, an inaccessible chasm may turn out to be connected via a bridge that is only seen in Umbral world. If enemies step on such spectral bridge, turn off the lamp and they will fall to their deaths.
  3. Don't sell Umbral Scouring - initially, the item cannot be even used, and the only information you receive about it is that you can sell it at Mohlu. Don't do it, as they can be used to obtain unique weapons, armor sets, or even spells thanks to Remembrances. Don't get rid of Umbral Scouring - this is the currency.
  4. Use Ranged weapons on suspended objects - during your sessions, you may encounter items that are inaccessible from the ground level. Instead of trying to pick them up , use your ranged weapon and target it. This will make the item fall, and possible to collect.

You can read more starting tips on a separate page of our guide: Tips and tricks.
