How To Open The Cage Of Binding In Crisis Core Reunion

In order to open the Cage of Binding, players are required to read all of the LOVELESS tablets found in the Depths of Judgement. We will be going through all of their locations.

First LOVELESS Tablet

The first LOVELESS tablet is found near the safe zone, right at the start of the arena. It is very easy to spot, so it will not be a problem to look for it.

Mako Light In The Lake of Oblivion

Once you have read all LOVELESS tablets, make your way to the Lake of Oblivion. Now, you must interact with the mako light falling on the lake in different places; interacting with them will spawn a G Lucifero enemy. 

Defeating this enemy can be quite tricky because of its speed. In addition, it also hits decently hard. You must bait its attacks and then punish with your own. Bring Fire, Ice, and Lightning based command material, as these enemies can be weak against them.

Once you have killed all of these enemies, a path will open to the Cage of Binding, and the trophy/achievement Cage Opener will be unlocked.

Inside The Cage Of Binding

Once you get inside, you must fight all of the random enemies that attack you to proceed. These enemies drop keys required to open the doors to proceed. The path here is linear. Keep progressing until you find a corrupted locked door.

If you cannot open it, walk around and wait for an enemy to attack you. If it is one of these enemies, you will obtain a key.

  • Goddess Base Key/Goddess Sacral Key: Is obtained by killing Nightmares
  • Goddess Solar Key/Goddess Heart Key: Is obtained by defeating Mover:
  • Goddess Throat Key: Is obtained by killing Death Machine
  • Goddess Crown Key: Is obtained by defeating Grosspanzer

Once you have defeated the Grosspanzer and obtained the Goddess Crown Key, make your way to cell #31 and open the chest containing the Iron Bar Key. Once you have obtained it, head on to cell #19 for a shortcut to the Behemoth King.

Behemoth King

The Behemoth King can be found in the Howling Fang after obtaining the Iron Bar Key. It is a powerful enemy with a dangerous ability that allows it to regenerate its health. Also, if you wish to learn how to defeat the Behemoth King, check out our guide.
