Castlevania Harmony of Despair walkthrough: Chapter 2 “Lord of Unseen Strings”

This chapter is pretty easy; the hardest part would be the actual boss fight. Once you have the map down, you should be able to make it to the boss in around 8 minutes.

You will want to open as many chests as you can and to save as much gold as possible. This way you can purchase the best weapons, defense, and other such items. In order to get to the boss in this chapter, you will need to open a few doors by pulling specific levers that are placed around the map. They are shown in this video where they are located.

Next to some of the iron maidens, there is a crate to the left. Block these iron maidens with the crates so that the Puppet Master does not head to these locations when you are fighting him.

This map is alright for the Lance weapon except the boss. You can still beat the boss with it but I would recommend another weapon instead such as the Claymore, Gladius or Hrunting.

Part 2 shows the Chapter 2 Boss Fight:

This boss only has two attacks but each attack will lay a huge punch on you. This boss will be extremely easy if you have blocked the iron maidens with the crates (as mentioned above and shown in the previous video). By blocking these iron maidens, it prevents him from moving to the longer locations on the map. These locations take too long to get too, and you will likely die before being able to finish him.

This boss has two main attacks you will need to watch out for:

  • You will constantly need to be on the lookout for when he pulls the voodoo doll of you out, you have only less than a few seconds to destroy it before it deals a huge amount of damage to you. Your priority is to make sure you destroy these voodoo dolls.
  • His second attack is by releasing a bunch of pink floating dolls from his mouth. These dolls poison you while also bringing down your MP down to 0. They can easily be destroyed but you should make sure your priority is making sure you get the voodoo dolls destroyed first.
