After regaining control of Death, you will be attacked by some new bad guys named constructs. They are slow moving and simple to take down, just avoid their attacks and smash them when they arent attacking easy! After a short battle and an additional scene you will be tasked with finding an artefact called The Fire of the Mountain.
Here you will also be granted your first skill point. So follow the on-screen prompts to access the menu and choose an ability from either the Harbinger or Necromancer tree. When ready, exit the menu.
Before going too far, look to the right of where you are and behind a giant statue you will find a chest containing some loot and gold. Continue into the tunnel to the East and follow it to the end to enter Tri-Stone.
After the cut-scene you will find yourself next to an ancient weapon master named Thane. Talk to him to train some new combat skills (for a fee of course) and you can also challenge him to a duel (side-quest the Old Warrior).
|If you win, he will give you some good experience and four side-quests to hunt down and kill powerful boss monsters 'Find and Kill Bheithir', 'Find and Kill Gorewood', 'Find and Kill Achidna', 'Find and Kill the Deposed King'.|
When you are done with him, head over towards the giant stone face and up the ramp to the left. Here you will find a Tome statue. Use this if you wish. Continue to the left and talk to Alya here who will give you your next objectives. In a similar circular structure on the opposite side of the stone face you will find a shaman who you can talk to. Talk with her to receive a side-quest 'Shamans Craft' which has you gather ingredients for a charm.
|If you have finished the original Darksiders and there is a save on your hard drive, once all conversation has been exhausted the shaman will give you a scythe Chaos Fang and shoulder armour - Pauldron of the Horseman.|
When you are done, return to Thane who has now moved up to the gate to exit the area. After a short chat, he will open the doorway for you. Exit into the hallway beyond.
Around the first corner, you will find a set of stars leading down to a hole full of water. On the right is a wall we can climb up with a wall run. But first, lets jump down into the water. Dive down to find a Boatmans Coin which is similar to the artefacts war could find in the original game (we can exchange these with Vulgrim). You can use the blocks jutting out of the left hand wall to return to the stairs. Now climb up to the right and follow the passage until you find yourself outside.
