How to get all Athra Surges in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown

Going back to its 2D roots, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown spices up the formula in regard to design and gameplay to fit the Metroidvania mold. Traversal and navigation are about what you would expect, including the ability to uncover the map by finding a hidden NPC, but combat is a lot more flexible than you might think. In addition to your normal attacks, Athra Surges serve as your most powerful tools to unleash in a pinch. Most come naturally throughout the game, but half are optional and require some extra exploration to unlock. If you want to make the most of your Athra gauge and craft the perfect build in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, here’s how to get them all.

How to get all Athra Surges

There are 10 total Athra Surgest to collect in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, however, only five of them are given to you through natural progression. The remaining five you will need to hunt down and collect by beating the Alternate Sargon in a fight. He will appear at specific areas on the map, and if you can best him, you will be rewarded with a new Athra Surge. The five you get through normal progression are:

  • Verethranga’s Smite: a dashing attack that deals multiple hits.
  • Bahman’s Breath: spawns an HP restoring area of effect.
  • Arash’s Ray: shoots a beam that can pierce enemies
  • Bahamut’s Rage: creates a massive tornado around Sargon that throws any enemy nearby for damage.
  • Rashnu’s Judgment: puts you in a counter-stance that unleashes a powerful attack on any enemy that hits you while active.

Here are the ones you have to seek out and where to get them.

Wind of Sistan

Located in The Depths, you can snag this one on a high platform at the location above. Wind of Sistan creates a tornado of Athra energy around Sargon that disables enemies, but can only be used on the ground.

Shahbaz Spirit

From the location on the map, you need to platform across the invisible pillars and then cross a wooden bridge to a stone slab that has information about the Immortals. Continue forward into the next room to encounter Alternate Sargon for a duel.

This surge is an anti-air move where you slash both swords directly above Sargon.

Hadhayans Might

You will need to use your time powers to move up and to the right in this section of the Soma Tree. Next, you need to climb up a series of wooden scaffolding platforms. This time not just one, but two Alternate Sargon awaits you at the top.

Unleash this move to teleport to an enemy and slam down on them from above.

Soul of Gilgamesh

The Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown map.

Head down to this corner of the Pit of Eternal Sands, slide under a gap in the left wall, and platform up the left side until you see a glowing yellow crack in the cliff that you can bust open. Move through the cave and face Alternate Sargon once again.

This is one of the better surges since it is a complete buff to your moves. It makes Sargon faster, stronger, and take less damage, but also opens up new, longer combo options.

Vayu’s Wave

The map menu in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown.

You need to beat the first nine challenges with Artaban before you can get Yayus Wave in the Lower City. After completing the last one, he will reward you with Vayu’s Wave.

Swinging his swords, Sargon will shoot out a wave of energy that knocks enemies ahead of him back.

How to get Beautiful Flowers in Palworld
A player overlooking the landscape in Palworld.

You can't throw a rock in Palworld without hitting some material you can grab. Some materials you will need for almost everything, such as Paldium, while others have more specific uses like Coal. Then there are the materials that you can never seem to find when you need them. Beautiful Flowers sound like the kind of thing you would see all over in Palworld, and yet they are among the more elusive items in the game. There are only a few places they show up naturally, and a scant few Pals that drop them as loot. If you're looking to brighten up your base with some flowers, here is how you can collect Beautiful Flowers.
How to get Beautiful Flowers

The first way to get Beautiful Flowers is to find them, but they only appear in the Wildlife Sanctuaries off the coast of the main islands. There are four in total, and all have Beautiful Flowers randomly spawning on them, so feel free to choose the one that's most convenient to get to. Just be aware that the PIDF will be hunting you down as soon as you arrive.

How to breed all Fusion Pals in Palworld
A Tocotoco in Palworld.

There's a lot you can do with your Pals in Palworld that you probably wouldn't think of by looking at it. Aside from catching and battling them, you will also be putting them to work at your base, collecting resources like Paldium and Coal to give you a constant supply of materials to craft with. Unlike other monster-catching titles, Pals don't evolve in Palworld, but instead can be bred to pass on their traits. While you could throw any two Pals in the farm to breed, so long as they are male and female, the result will usually be a random Pal. However, if you know which two specific Pals to pair up, you can get a much more powerful Fusion Pal when the lucky egg hatches. Here are all the Pal combinations that result in a Fusion Pal in Palworld.

How to get Rainbow Crystals in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth
Ichiban surfing.

When Ichiban makes it over to Hawaii in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, he's about as broke as he can get. As you're searching high and low for any bits of cash you can find, you will also collect a ton of materials that become very handy when you're ready to start crafting and upgrading your team's weapons. However, when you're trying to max out or make the best of the best in the game, more precious recourses will be required that you won't find in a dumpster or random briefcase on the street. Rainbow Crystals are as rare as they sound, but only if you don't know where to look. Here's an easy way to snag these rare gems.
Where to get Rainbow Crystals

Like nearly all rare materials in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, there is always a small chance some enemies will drop one or two Rainbow Crystals if you grind long enough. Grinding for levels or cash is one thing, but when you have no idea what your chances are that a material will drop, it's unbearable. Instead, head over to RoboMichio and browse his wears. He will hand over Rainbow Crystals for 250 Robo Discs a pop, which isn't a bad exchange rate given how long it will take to collect that number in the dungeon.
