Getting Upstairs - Zombie OutfitEdit

  • Speak to Reldo in the Castle library. (Chat 5).
  • Search the most northern bookshelf along the western wall for "Heart Magic Notes".
  • Slightly east, talk to Arrav. (Chat 1)
  • Talk to Reldo.
  • If not wearing zombie override: Equip full zombie outfit (mask, shirt, trousers, gloves, boots). This can be purchased from Thessalia's Fine Clothes.

Note: If you cannot afford the entire zombie outfit, you can make a quick 90 zemomarks by taking the free bronze arrows and bolts from Lowe in his archery shop, and then selling them to the general store. Other ways to make zemomarks quickly are located here.

(Replay: If you have saved red mist from a previous run, just head upstairs.)

  • Head east to the kitchen and take 2 vials. Head upstairs via the south-east staircase of the castle.
  • Kill 2 armoured zombies and collect Red Mist.

Upstairs - Repairing Tin SoldierEdit

(Replay: If you have the code, just pick up decoder strips and skip all way to unlock treasure room safe - the code will be in chat box. If you didn't save the strips and can't remember the combination, follow the steps.)

  • Enter Red Barrier directly west of the armoured zombie room.
  • Head west, passing through 2 additional red barriers.
  • Inspect Tin Soldier on the Operating Table in the south-western room.

Upstairs - unlock treasure room safe (Replay: Continue from here if you have the Decoder strips)Edit
