The first objective in the game is to find Elishas Fountain. This is the introductory mission and you will learn the games basics, such as switching weapons, fighting, etc
Follow this step-by-step guide in order to complete the tutorial faster and advance in the game
After the first dialogue you are asked to follow the path which leads you to Elishas Fountain.
The first obstacle is a closed gate on the right. Use Elaras bow and hit the rope which holds the gate. Hold LTto aim and RT to fire.
Follow the path on the right and you will reach an area separated by a ravine.
On the other side there are several Araklings (spiders).
You will play as Elara, therefore take cover behind the stones, by pressing A when you are near them. Use LTto aim and RT to fire your arrows. Kill all the spiders and move forward, following Caddoc.
In the next area you will be asked to use your melee skills to fight more spiders. Press Y to draw your sword andX to attack. After you defeat them, you will be able to approach the fountain on the left.
Caddoc will try to open a door which leads to a passage. Go near him and press B to assist.
Enter the passage and follow the instructions you receive.
Keep your eyes on the ground, to find more arrows.
Move forward and you will find an altar with a green stone on it.
Approach it and watch the cutscene.
Objective 2: Escape!
When the cutscene ends, get ready to sprint. Hold A and follow Caddoc.
Defeat the skeleton archers and move forward. Follow Caddoc, and fight all skeletons. Eventually Caddoc will be injured. You have to hold B to heal him.
You will reach a closed gate. There is a brazier near it and you have to approach it. Wait until Elaras arrows are ignited, and then fire the brazier on the right. The gate will open.
You will enter a room and in the middle you will see an obelisk. When you approach it, press B to change characters, and you will play as Caddoc. Destroy the barrels you see in the room and all other objects, and then get near the pillar on the right. Press B to interact with it and tap A to push it forward. A gate will open.
Move forward but keep your eyes on the ground, because you will find two crystals.
In the next room you will see a dead man on the ground. Approach it and interact with it by pressing B.
Continue down the path and kill more skeletons. You will find an weapon stand which allows you to change Caddocs weapon. Equip the sword by pressing B, and advance, until you enter the Swamps of Despair.
Objective 3: Solve the riddle of the axe
In the next area, there is only one path to follow, and the objective is to get the axe which stands in the middle of the room.
First, look on one of the pillars to your right until you find a sign containing additional information on how to reach the platform in the middle.
You will see a small brazier in the center of the room. Approach it and press B. Elara will fire an arrow and a bridge will rise.
Get across the bridge, and take the axe. Equip it because its an enchanted weapon.
Fight all the skeletons and exit the area.
Follow the path, but be prepared to fight more enemies. Also, make sure you check the weapons and the shields they drop, because some of them are better than those used by Caddoc.
Move forward until you reach a closed door. Enter the room, approach the altar in the middle and a new cutscene starts.
After the cutscene ends, move forward until you fall into an underground chamber. Get ready to fight, as you will be surrounded by skeletons. Keep an eye on Elara and protect her as much as you can. Dont forget to use the special attacks and heal yourself if needed.
After you clear the room look around until you see a big statue. Get near it and push it forward, and then enter the secret passage.
Take the torch on the ground and ignite it, using the brazier on the right. Also ask Elara to ignite her arrows, and then continue down the path. Defeat the skeletons and check the underground passages, because you will find more crystals and other collectibles. Use the braziers to reignite your torch.
In the last chamber of the tutorial you will be attacked by several skeletons. Defeat them fast and approach the ropes to set them loose. Dont be afraid because the creature that appears on the other side of the room cant attack you. Get near the statue in the center and push it by tapping A. It will fall, breaking one of the walls which allows you to escape.
You will unlock the Cashews on The Counter achievement for completing the tutorial.
Watch the final cutscene of the tutorial and purchase the upgrades you wish, by spending the crystals you found.
You are now ready to move to the first chapter of Hunted: The Demon’s Forge.
