Here you will encounter your first Dredge of Boreas.
Enemy Profile: They attack Kratos by moving quickly, and swiping at him with their massive claws. Another power the Dredge of Boreas has is the ability to spit an icy mist at Kratos, which can freeze him entirely in place if it hits. The only way to harm a Dredge of Boreas is for Kratos to first activate Theras Bane and slice into its icy hide while doing so. The fire of Thera’s Bane will penetrate the icy flesh, causing pieces of it to break off. Beware, however, that as the pieces are removed, they will transform into Boreas Spawn (see below). Once he has stripped it of its icy armor, and has weakened it, Kratos can kill a Dredge of Boreas by grabbing on and repeatedly
Stategy: This guy is actually pretty easy once you get the hang of his pattern. When directly in front of him, double jump (rolling does not work well all the time). double jump out of his way like crazy and spam Square+Square+ and Triangle.
After the beast has been slain, head down the path. If you didn’t open the previous chest, however, now would be a good time to do so. Break down the barricade and grab onto the crate ahead. Before pushing the crate across the bridge, take care of the archers ( L1+ O ,and then pressing circle to launch him to another archer works particularly well.) Open the two chests, to the right, for GREEN ORBS and BLUE ORBS.
Push the crate to the wooden platform, and use it to climb up. Jump to the rope and zip to the other side. Climb up the wall and over to the left. Break the wood that’s covering the opening by using Thera’s Bane, then pull yourself inside. Keep using Thera’s Bane on the frozen statue to the right. When the ice breaks, and the enemy is reanimated, you guessed it — use Thera’s Bane to break his armor, and destroy him, taking the Automation Gear.
Climb back down the wall, to the wooden platform. Destroy the wood that’s covering the opening here, and climb through. Use the newly acquired Automation Gear to open the gate to the left. Climb the wall yet again, and head towards the opened gate. Drop down to open the two chests with GREEN ORBS and BLUE ORBS, if needed, and save your progress. Turn around and open the hidden chest, in the lower right corner for the twelfth GORGON EYE (12/15).
Jump into the water hole, and FIRST swimm towards the screen for a chest of RED ORBS. Then swimm up the current. Latch onto the grapple point when you’re close enough, and pull yourself closer by rotating the analog nub. Wait for the spinning wheel to show the opening and swim through it. Pass the obvious path to the surface and swim into the hole on the far right side to find a chest of RED ORBS.
Swim to the surface and head down the tunnel. Drop down into the next area and kill all of the mini-clones and Harpies. Open the chest with rotatingGREENor BLUE ORBS and keep moving down the path. Cross the bridge, and make a right. Continue all the way to find a hidden chest of RED ORBS. Head back past the two chests of GREEN ORBS and BLUE ORBS, and continue up the trail.
Walkthrough – Aroania Pass
Erinys is one feisty vixen that’s extremely fast, and even likes to bring friends to the party. She can be a bit annoying, so be ready at all times to parry her dashes. If you get the timing down, though, you should be able to parry them with no trouble. As soon as you see her coil back, press L to block. When the Harpies are summoned, simply press CIRCLE to rip them apart. She can’t resist your magic, so use it when you need to.
When you’ve dealt enough damage, and the large CIRCLE is above her head, press it to rip off one of her wings. Since she has two wings, you’ll obviously need to do this twice. After the second time, she’ll transform into a large bird and will fly away. When prompted, press the appropriate button to catch her as she flies by. Rotate the analog nub to reel her in for a damaging blow.
After she flies away again, she’ll double back and take out the platform you’re standing on. Get ready for a few more button prompts. Slide down the ramp, jump to the next one, then jump again and press CIRCLE to grab hold of her. Erinys will take you high in the air, and let go of you, leaving you to fall to your death. Hold X to catch up to her. When you get close enough a button prompt will appear on screen. Press CIRCLE to grab hold of her, and attack as much as you can before you’re thrown off. Do this a few times, until you drive her into the ground.
When you get back to earth, it’s time to finish her off for good. Block her attacks as you approach her, and when you’re close enough, press CIRCLE to start the mini game. Press the appropriate buttons, as prompted, to kill her and take the Scourge of Erinys.
Test out your newly acquired power on the next set of enemies. Feel free to spam Left on the D-Pad, because for this short battle, you have unlimited magic.

After you get locked in the room, the Piraeus Lion will come roaring out, and this guy might be the most problematic enemy you’ve faced thus far. He will make a lot of noise, which will stun Kratos, and he takes big swipes at you. As always, roll out of the way to avoid damage. Use Thera’s Bane to add a little extra damage to your attacks, and don’t hesitate to use magic. Initiate the mini-game, when available and finish him off.
