path in Corruption.
Continue from the grated beam
Jump with Elikaís help to the wall with two rings and climb up to a ledge.
Up to the ledge
on the protruding beam and jump to a hanging column. Jump backwards and wall
run. Jump off to the next hanging column.

backwards to the wall. Wall run and jump off with Elikaís help to a large
platform in front of the Fertile Ground.
A large platform
Elika: He makes even your ego look small.
Prince: Then we really need to stop him getting out.
Elika: Letís use the Plate.
Prince: Those cranks down there, what are they all for?
Elika: These were from the
Prince: It looks like the water in those ponds has turned to Corruption. What happens to fish if theyíre Corrupted?
Elika: They die.
Prince: Well, I suppose thatís not as bad as some of the things I was imagining.
down the stairs and wall run left to a yellow Power Plate.
Wall run left to the yellow Plate
Plate will launch you between two walls. Wall run on the right wall, and jump
off to the left wall. Wall run to a second yellow Plate.
To the second yellow Plate
Plate flings you at a wall. Wall run to the third yellow Plate.
To the third yellow Plate
hit a room with cranks.
To the crank room
If these were gardens...
where are all the plants?
Elika: The Corruption must have killed the few that were left. The rest... this place hasnít been tended since my mother died. Thereís a plate attached to that pillar over there. We can raise it if we fill that pond. It is a... counterweight. The cranks control sluice gates that let the water flow to those control ponds.
Prince: Any idea which one we move first?
Elika: I think we should start over there. But thatís for how we open the sluice gates... I only ever saw the plate raised once as a child and Iíve never seen the plate active.
Prince: Which crank shall we push?
Elika: Just pick one, we can figure it out.
Prince: Right and keep an eye open for any of our friends.
The plate under the yellow Power Plate
left and overlook the cranks because the cranks on your right wonít work. Like
most of the puzzles in this Game itís all trial and error without any logic
involved. You must turn the cranks and allow a number of basins to fill with
black Corruption. Eventually the left tank will be filled.
The cranks on the left side
The gate is open, but the flow must start
Prince: It looks like each crank controls more than one sluice gate.
Elika: Weíll have to figure out which opens which to make a channel to the control ponds.
Prince: Yeah, great. These cranks are linked to all of the pools around them.
Elika: Weíll have to remember the changes they make.
Prince: Pity you canít remember the order.
Elika: I was eight when I last saw them moved.
Prince: Thatís still not right.
Elika: The cranks move in both directions so we can correct them Ö we can work this out.
Prince: Any suggestions?
Elika: Youíre the world travelled adventurer whoís seen it all. I thought you might have an idea.
Prince: Terrific... You get the feeling weíre being watched?
Elika: It must be The Concubine. Letís keep going.
Prince: Donít you think itís odd The Concubineís not appeared? I mean weíve been sitting here and sheís done nothing. Maybe sheís not that bright of a Concubine.
Elika: Maybe she didnít think you were bright enough to solve the puzzle.
Prince: I can figure this out. I can figure this out...
Elika: Letís try another crank.
Prince: Think, think...
Elika: Maybe if we moved another crank.
Prince: What now...
Elika: Weíll have to find a way to align the gates.
Prince: Why canít I see what to do?
Elika: Ha, I canít see it yet. But there has to be a solution.
turning the cranks and make sure more and more basins get filled with
Corruption. Suddenly you will see that the left pond is filled and that part of
the puzzle solved. Now you can go to the right side. When the Corruption has
flown in left and right of the plate it will rise. You can jump with Elikaís
help to the raised plate.
The Corruption has raised the plate
The yellow Power Plate is within reach now
run up, engage and the Plate will launch you to the Fertile Ground.
The Fertile Ground
the light beam and youíll meet The Concubine. This is a good battle though.
The bitch can now turn black and blue too.
Scenes from the battle
Where sheís gone? Are you sure her
disappearance isnít another illusion? I can move, she must have gone. Well,
then letís heal the Ground and get out of this place. If we jump down from
here we can use the Plates to get out, right? Elika?
Elika: Yes. Yes, that should be the way out.
to the light beam, and let Elika merge with the Force. Press yellow
repeatedly and witness the miracle:
The healing of this Land!
You used to spend time here?
Elika: I used to come here with my mother.
Prince: Oh yeah? I donít think sheíd be too impressed with the way this place is now.
Elika: There were fountains all round here that watered the plants. Trees, flowers, herbs, spices, things you didnít see anywhere else. They must have been from before, or from outside. Sheíd bring the children here to look after them.
Prince: Yeah... Ne-ver got in to gardening. You know. Hey, theyíre just plants, we canít get you some more. I find Farah so we can ship them in from wherever you want. Flowers, trees, youíre a Princess, you deserve it.
You can make these gardens grow again.
Elika (bored): Yes.
will now get an Autosave.
This is an Autosave
You can now choose between two bordering Lands: Spire of Dreams and Royal Spire. It doesnít matter which one you take first. Flip a coin, set your destination to Spire of Dreams and ask Elika to show the way.
Next destination: Spire of Dreams
Elikaís Flare shows you the way
down to a lower ledge. You can see the border platform from here.
Jump down to this ledge
Jump to two poles in a row. Jump with Elikaís help from the second pole to a wall. Wall run to your right and jump off to a narrow beam. From here you have a good view of the border platform with a black flame of evil.
To the narrow beam
Walk down from the hanging narrow bridge. Your next moves are a jump to the wall, wall running to the left and jumping off to a pole.
At the end of the bridge
Hanging from the pole
to the platform and face the Soldier Of Ahriman. When this creep turns black
only a red attack will end that state.
