The best amulets in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown

Amulets are your main piece of equipment in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. They run the gamut from being simple buffs to completely changing how you play. Some are easy to find, and just need to be bought from merchants, while others are rewards for beating bosses or are hidden in chests that could take a bit of skill to reach. The best part is, once you find one you like, you can upgrade it at the forge to make it even better. The difficult part is deciding which ones are best and worth spending resources on. With 37 amulets total, we’ve narrowed things down with this list of the best ones to get in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown.

Best amulets

From the 37 available amulets, we found the following to be the most useful for the majority of situations. We suggest only using our final pick when and if you decide to try and go for a full completion.

Dragon King

This is a unique amulet in that it will break upon use until you rest at a Wak-Wak Tree. However, the utility of it is unmatched in a game as punishing as this. When equipped, Dragon King will save you from death once, restoring a little HP to give you one last chance to overcome a boss or save you from being sent back to the last checkpoint.

Shield of Mithra

The parry is Sargon’s best move and one you will need to master if you have any hope of making progress in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. If you’re a fan of other action games, it probably doesn’t feel right to land a perfect parry, but not get a little slowdown. This amulet does just that, and creates a time bubble around you after a parry that slows all enemies inside it so you can dish out some damage.

Void Blade

Sargon isn’t without ranged options, but they’re quite limited and often underwhelming. Void Boade is a great ranged energy slash that can be used repeatedly after a cooldown period. It doesn’t deal a ton of damage, but being able to sneak in safe damage on a boss can turn the tide for you.

Blessing

Sometimes you can’t argue with the simple amulets. Blessing is just a boring old health boost, but sometimes you need that extra hit or two to finally overcome a boss. You have to rest at a Wak-Wak Tree to restore any HP the amulet gives you above your normal max, meaning potions won’t impact that extra health, which is the only small downside.

Prosperity Bird

With this game being a Metroidvania, there are dozens of collectibles, chests, and secrets all around the map. When you decide to start hunting down those missing trinkets, slap on the Prosperity Bird to get a small sound cue whenever a collectible is close by so you can hunt it down.

Even though the series has never fully embraced the Metroidvania design, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown proves that this franchise was tailor-made for it. The dynamic movement, time abilities, and acrobatic combat, when packaged in a tight, well-designed 2D game, mix like a cold drink in the desert. With that genre shift, you can count on most of the tropes to come along with it, most notably the intricate and intertwining map. Exploration is key to these games, as is backtracking, which means you will frequently reference your map to get your bearings. But until you've uncovered the rooms yourself, each section of the map will remain shrouded in fog. While you could manually fill in each and every corner, finding Farbia in a given zone will instantly reveal everything there is to see on your map. The trick then becomes figuring out where to find her.
Where to find Farbia
There are 10 zones in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, and thus, that many opportunities to find and chat with Farbia and exchange 50 Time Shards to reveal the map. Here's her location in each of them.
The Depths

To reach Farbia in The Depths, you must first unlock the Shadow of the Simurgh ability. With it, take the main elevator down to the bottom level. Use the ability here to create a clone of Sargon on the lift, send it back up, and teleport below it after it rises. At the bottom, you can speak to Farbia and pay for a clear map.

The best weapons in The Finals

A shooter is only as good as its weapon selection. Without an armory stocked with fun, satisfying, and powerful guns to pick from, even a game as dynamic and unique as The Finals would grow stale. Thankfully, that isn't the case as the game launched with an impressive list of weapons to unlock and experiment with alongside its gadgets. The tricky thing about picking a "best" weapon in this game is that they are divided up between the three classes: light, medium, and heavy. That means you may have to learn to use a new weapon or adapt to a new class if you really want to play the meta. Of course, we expect balance changes and new weapons to shake this list up, but for now, these are the best weapons in The Finals.
Th best weapons in The Finals
As of the time of writing, there are 21 total weapons in The Finals. We've narrowed down our list to the top five to give players in each class an idea of which ones are dominating the competition.
V9s

This pistol is currently the king of light builds. Pistols usually have a reputation for being weak, but the V9S is by no means underpowered. It is a semiautomatic pistol, so you can shoot fast as long as you feel confident in your aim, and it's deadly accurate at medium and long ranges. Being so light, it will keep you mobile and out of danger for hit-and-run assaults.
