  • How to Get the Axe: Heaven’s Labyrinth – Talk to Baphomet after solving the Typhon puzzle. Then you can return to Heaven’s Labyrinth to solve the puzzle.

  • Items You Need To Purchase:
    • Harp: 1000 gold – The harp doesn’t work on Eurydice in the Eternal Prison. Buy it and play it for him to get a clue for the next step of his puzzle.
