## How to open Arithmancy doors

Arithmancy doors are essentially math problems in disguise. You're supposed to determine which animal around the frame corresponds to what number and then determine what numbers fit in the ? spots on the two triangles on the door's face. Put simply, to solve these puzzles you need to make the sum of the values of the three numbers and animals around the triangle equal to the big number inside the triangle. If you aren't sure how to do that, or the value of the arithmancy door animals, follow these steps:

Step 1: Interact with the door to see the interior triangles.

Step 2: Add the two known numbers of each triangle together. If you see an animal and not a number, check this cipher to convert it into a number.

Step 3: Subtract the number inside the triangle from the sum you just got.

Step 4: Take those two new numbers and find which animal they correspond to.

Step 5: Locate the ? and ?? symbols on the walls nearby.

Step 6: Interact with each of them until they show the correct animal.

Step 7: Once both have the correct animal showing, the door will open and you can claim the loot inside.

How to enhance unique abilities in The First Descendant

There are already a healthy range of weapon types in The First Descendant, but aside from just finding one that you like the feel of, you will want to pay attention to any unique abilities. Not all guns have one, but those that do are well worth equipping for the extra power they provide. As you get stronger and level up, those abilities might start to no longer do the trick against tougher enemies, but you can enhance them to kepp them relevant into the late game. Here's how to upgrade any weapon's unique ability.

How to use Great Runes in Elden Ring

The world of Elden Ring is filled with mysteries. The game doesn't hold your hand for long before letting you venture out in any direction you like – which is both a blessing and a curse. Stumbling upon new weapons, enemies, or another gorgeous viewpoint is what makes Elden Ring so entertaining, and if the game simply pointed you towards all these locations, it wouldn't be nearly as exciting.
