I hope I'm not making too many mistakes and my language is not too poor ;) This guide shall help you find the well hidden relics in Tomb Raider Anniversary to unlock the costumes for Lara. One costume is unlocked by finding all relics. Table of Contents ---- Mountain Caves ---- The Lost Valley ---- The Palace of Midas ---- The Temple of Khamoon ---- The Sanctuary of the Scion ---- Natla's Mines ---- The Great Pyramid 1. Mountain Caves Follow the level to the end and open the great door after the hallway with the arrow traps. Then return to the right counterweight when facing the door, the hall which had two wolves attacking you. Climb the two ledges on the right and jump to the pole, just as if you would want to grab the counterweight. Instead of that jump the minute you grab the pole, believe me, it is possible. Lara leaps on and if timed correctly, grabs a ledge next to the door. If timed not correctly she falls to her death. From this ledge jump to a pole reaching out of the door and the way up is really obvious. Jump from ledge to ledge until you reach the top of the column to the right of the door. There you find the first relic KILLER WHALE BOTTLE (Thx to titan24 for telling me that I had switched the relics from Mountain Caves and Lost Valley!) which unlocks the LEGEND COSTUME from the game's predecessor. 2. The Lost Valley Play the level until you reach the broken mechanism at the great waterfall where you find the secong cog. Instead of going back over the bridge, jump to the pole rotating on the waterwheel on the left when facing the river. From here jump to the dangerously narrow ledges in the middle of the waterfall. Jump up and from here you can reach a hallway leading to a switch, which opens a door somewhere under water. Now you actually have to wait until you can lower the big mask at the end of the level, stopping the waterfall. Climb up and drop into the river. Near the now stopped waterfall you should find a cave which was locked before you pulled the switch back then. In here lies the relic KERO MUG unlocking the CLASSIC COSTUME. Enjoy Lara in all her 1996 glory! 3. The Palace of Midas First Relic: In the room with the decending pillars and the spikes (the first door you get to search after entering the Palace), make your way through the room as if you want to reach the balcony with the lead bar. Instead of jumping there, jump to the slide on the left when facing the balcony and quickly to the ledge on the wall. You can make this much easier by tossing the crate from the room with the stairs into the small alcove of the the last pillar you have to jump to, the one with the slide. By doing that you stop it from ever decending again. Shimmy to the right and obtain the relic ATHENIAN OWL FIGURINE behind some rubble. It unlocks the CROFT MANOR SPORT dress Lara wore back in 1996. Second Relic: After you have lifted the last column in the hell-like flames room of Midas' Palace drop back into the water. Make your way back to the first balcony and jump to the grappling hook to the left when facing the switch. From there you can reach a ledge and make your way over a series of slides, ledges and poles towards a secret alcove in one of the colums. Pull the switch there and the pillar above you rises to reveal the relic. Now be quick. Drop into the water, swim along the right wall when facing the entrance, leave the water and make your way to the last pillar. Don't even think of evading the flames, just run and jump as fast as you can and you may reach the relic GRIFFIN-HEAD PROTOME in time unlocking the GOLDEN COSTUME resembling Lara after dying on the Hand of Midas. 4. The Temple of Khamoon In the very last room of the level, the one with the four little obelisks, use one of the crates you can pull out of the walls to reach a crack in one of the columns to the right when facing the level's exit. From here it is easy to navigate the cracks and jumping the obelisks to reach an alcove in the wall to the left of the great door, finding the relic MUMMIFIED CAT and unlocking the CAMOUFLAGE SUIT Lara wore in Tomb Raider AoD (Thx to Sam Vere for telling me the outfit wasn't taken from TR 3 Area 51 Level!). 5. The Sanctuary of the Scion In the room with the two giant statues make the water sink to lowest level. Then solve the first beetle riddle, make the water rise, open the door in the Horus statue to the right and swim through it. Climb out of the water and look for the crate between the legs of the statue. Toss it into the water and jump in, too. Make the water level sink and pull the crate under the fenced gate you opened a bit early, which is shut now. Make your way up the left statue again but DON'T make the water level rise. Open the fenced gate again, jump into the water and use the crate to climb up and get through it before it closes again. Climb up inside the statue and then find the ledge at its left leg, the one that touches the wall. Shimmy around to find a switch and jump for it. A gate to the right of the Horus statue's head opens. Climb up, solve the second beetle riddle and make the water rise. Make your way up the left statue as needed to proceed, then make the water rise to highest level and dive into the gate in the very right corner of the room when facing the statues to find the HORUS IDOL and unlock the CATSUIT from Tomb Raider Chronicles. 6. Natla's Mines Too easy when you think about it! After getting your guns back, return to the first room of the level and shoot down the crates hanging from the ceiling. One opens and reveals the relic CHALICE OF TORMENT which unlocks the gross DOPPELGANGER COSTUME from the Great Pyramid riddle. 7. The Great Pyramid Play this gorgeous level up to the very end, opening the door and pulling out the bridge leading to the confrontation with Natla. Instead of walking through the hallway behind the bridge and ending the level, look up the ceiling to find a switch. Shot it and part of the ceiling drops and crashes the floor. Drop on the slide beneath, jump and swing on the grappling hook over the hot pool of lava into an opening with a medikit. Find the ladder there, climb up and obtain the relic TORC OF EMBITTERMENT unlocking the WETSUIT from Tomb Raider 2, Lara wore it when diving to the sunken Maria Doria. That's it! All relics found! And by that you unlocked the SCORCHED NATLA costume. Play as the demonic queen of Atlantis – minus her wings. Thanks to Crystal Dynamics for making this gorgeous game and to everybody reading this short guide! Also thanks to Sam Vere, Titan24 and Matthew Price for helping correct mistakes in the guide!
