Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown - How to Equip Amulets and Which Are the Best Ones?
After a decade since 2010’s The Forgotten Sands, Prince of Persia fans can finally rejoice as they have received a new entry in the series. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown features 2.5D side-scrolling mechanics and you take on the role of an elite Persian warrior named Sargon as he jumps, slides, and air-dashes through the environment.
While the game’s massive map is filled with numerous enemies and bosses to take down, players will also receive numerous rewards for embarking on such endeavors. One such reward is the Amulet, which will provide certain buffs to Sargon, making his journey just a little easier. Without further ado, let’s figure out how to equip these Amulets and which ones are better suited for your playstyle.
How to Equip Amulets in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown?
Equipping an Amulet in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is not as simple as heading into the menu and selecting it. The game makes you head out to specific locations spread out throughout the map to do so. This title contains glowing Wak-Wak Trees that allow you to replenish your health and resources, and this is where you can equip, manage, or upgrade your Amulets as well.
All you need to do is press the specific prompt to enter the Amulet menu. However, you need to remember that you cannot equip every single Amulet you own, as that would make you devastatingly powerful and make the game completely unbalanced. So, players are provided with an Amulet points system, which means you need to allot certain Amulet points to use them.
Players will begin with 3 points and you can work your way up to accumulating 12 Amulet points. Each Amulet will require a certain amount of points to equip them so make sure you pick something that fits your bill. For example, if you have 12 points available, you can either equip 6 Amulets that take up 2 points each or 4 Amulets that use 3 points each.
Which Amulets Are the Best in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown?
Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown has a total of 38 Amulets in it, each offering unique perks and abilities. As mentioned above, each uses certain Amulet points ranging from 1 to 3. These are our recommendations for the best Amulets:
Dragon King: This one takes up 3 Amulet points and it provides a worthy buff for it, allowing you to rise back up after a deadly blow from your enemy by restoring a small amount of your health. Although it only offers one-time protection, this is certainly a must-have as it essentially gives you a second chance.
Shield of Mithra: This is another 3-cost Amulet which creates a small time bubble that slows down all enemies in its radius, allowing you to get your attacks in before they react. This is only triggered if you successfully parry an enemy, which is not very difficult to perform.
Blade Dancer: A 2-point Amulet that lets you land a fourth hit at the end of your 3 combo attack. Equipping this means you can dish out more damage to your enemies, although you need to time your fourth attack properly. It can also be upgraded, allowing you to perform more consecutive hits.
