God of War: Ascension phoenix feather and gorgon eye locations guide

How to find every Phoenix Feather and Gorgon Eye

CHAPTER 7 - THE TOWER OF DELPHI

PHOENIX FEATHER #4

When you arrive at the tower on your giant snake and you’re inside, head down the spiral ramp to find a Phoenix Feather at the dead end.

GORGON EYE #8

Following on from above, ascend the inner spiral to the next level of the tower and pass the ladder to the left is a chest containing a Gorgon Eye.

GORGON EYE #9

After grappling your way along another giant snake train, go left to discover another grapple point that will give you access to a chest of red orbs and a Gorgon Eye.

CHAPTER 8 - THE PYTHON'S BELLY

PHOENIX FEATHER #5

Once you’ve acquired the Lightning of Zeus, go through the gates, climb up to the next level and double back on yourself on the topside of the snake to reach the chest containing the Phoenix Feather.

GORGON EYE #10

Beginning from the gates that held the Lightning of Zeus, climb up to the top of the snake and drop off the side to the adjacent snake.

CHAPTER 10 - THE TEMPLE OF DELPHI

GORGON EYE #11, PHOENIX FEATHER #6

Now that you’re in the safety of a temple, you’ll be brutally attacked by a Cerberus. Give him a beat down and pull out the ramp in the center of the room. To the left is a green noxious looking gas billowing from some mysterious origin. Enter the cloud of fumes to temporarily usher in the aeons of time to your surroundings so that a previously impenetrable stone wall or door will collapse with a gentle thrashing. Head away from the gas to the right side of the platform and tear down the door that lies between you and your next Gorgon Eye and Phoenix Feather.

GORGON EYE #12, PHOENIX FEATHER #7

After the cutscene, take a deep breath of some of that lovely green gas again and break down the door at the top of the right staircase. There’s a statue in the corridor that you will need to push into the room nearest to the top of the stairs. Maneuver it into the notch on the floor on the right of the room and step into the Medusa Beam gas to make a platform drop onto the top of the statue, giving you access to another Gorgon Eye and Feather.

GORGON EYE #13, PHOENIX FEATHER #8

Taking the staircase to the left, you will find another statue that you will need to push into the room closest to the staircase on this side to solve the puzzle and get to the chests. Drag the statue onto the pressure plate in the middle of the room to switch the gates over. Step into the Medusa Beam, drag the statue away from the pressure plate then wait in the gap between the gates for the effect of the gas to wear off. Once it does, the gates will change over leaving you on the side with the chests full of red orbs, a Phoenix Feather and a Gorgon Eye.

CHAPTER 11 - DELPHI CATACOMBS

GORGON EYE #14, PHOENIX FEATHER #9

Once you’ve added the Soul of Hades to your repertoire and faced two statues that got sick of being wall flowers and wanted a little action, ascend the ladder and head right to enter a large hall with a spiked floor and a couple of chandeliers dangling precariously above it. Jump onto the first chandelier and grapple the snake heads open to release the gas and send the light fixtures heading earthward. Get across the segments of floor as fast as you can and jump off onto the second chandelier as the gas wears off and it begins to rise again. Grapple the snake heads on this chandelier and make your way to the top of the sloping floor segment where you must jump off, grapple the wall and get ready to hit Square to smash through the door and land safely on a spike free floor. Now you can stroll back a few paces and pick up the Feather and the Gorgon Eye.

GORGON EYE #15

After you’ve made your way to the floor of the hourglass room and killed the enemies barring your way, step onto the round switch in the immediate area to permanently open the door on the right. Pull the switch in here to activate the Medusa Beam on the right side of the main room. Step into the Medusa Beam and go back to where the switch was to break down the door in the right alcove and find a Gorgon Eye.

PHOENIX FEATHER #10

The Phoenix Feather is in the hourglass room through the door on the left. To open this, you’ll need to enter the Medusa Beam, go to the left side of the room and pull down the pillar so that you can scale the left wall and reach the chandelier. Grapple and swing over to the top level of the room and pull the lever on the left to open up the door to the top level of room where the two statues previously came to life. Enter the Medusa Beam and follow the walkway around to break open the door on the right side of the room – you’ll need to use this exit in a minute. Go back to the room with the statues and drop down a level to initiate a fight with some random monsters and whilst you’re down there, manoeuvre the statue on the left in front of the fireplace. Climb back up, activate the Medusa Beam, drop down to where you left the statue and push it onto the fallen platform which will act as a lift when the gas wears off, leaving you and the statue back on the top level of the room. Drag the statue past the Medusa Beam, through the demolished doorway and onto the floor of the hourglass room. Now slide it over to the switch to open the left doorway and get the Phoenix Feather.

CHAPTER 13 - PASSAGE TO DELPHI

PHOENIX FEATHER #11

When the cutscene with the Oracle has finished, go straight ahead and jump over to the ledge in front of you. Shimmy to the right through a secret passage to reach the Phoenix Feather.
