Obvious reference to the song Ballroom Blitz by The Sweet93.173.134.238 13:31, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Can't find the "obvious" in it. "Blitz" is referring to german "blitz" in second world war, where building in London are bombarded over and over again. Later on, this word was used for any bombing raid on same spot for a long time period. So IMHO, Wall Breach Blitz more refers to a Wall Breach as a result of continues bombing, which seems more likely...Merty
Anything that uses "blitz" is a reference to the blitzkrieg tactic, which actually does not describe the London bombings at all (that was a prolonged siege on a static front, the opposite of the "lightning war" constant-motion tactics). In this specific case, it refers to the best method of completing this puzzle: moving quickly without stopping to fight all the foes along the way.
This is a fairly deep-rooted cultural reference and doesn't really need any trivia note. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 14:31, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
Actually this period is well known in England as w:The Blitz, and on it's own specifically refers to this period when England (and in particular London) was bombed.


So this JP doesn't have any chests? --Ireth Tassartir 13:57, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

I'm wondering the same thing. I didn't find any, either. --MushaUser Musha Sigc.png 22:53, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

Step 3??[edit]

No, what is NOT obvious here is what the HELL you do to go from the grassy plateau in step two to where ever the $#@%$#$# step 3 is. I see nothing vaguely likely ON the plateau to jump to, nor is there any clear sign of anything NEAR the plateau. The instructions just MAGICALLY place you there, where ever "there" is. MORE information is called for here. I'm sure it's obvious once it's been done but it's hardly obvious either from standing there, as I am now, nor from reading the instructions herein. >:-/ --OBloodyHell 21:01, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Bullet point 2-3 or picture 2-3? --JonTheMon 21:06, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Right. Figured it out -- I see no reason whatsoever to fight the ghosts on the plateau. They aren't in the way to anywhere, they respawn way too fast for you to get anywhere before they are back, and they drop crap... So: Anyone wants the solution: to go from Step 2 to step 3, continue around the outside of the building, and ignore the plateau. The preceding unsigned comment was added by OBloodyHell (talkcontribs).

I think the issue is that you didn't know which plateau was being referred to. I tend to think of the higher one as a plateau and the lower one as a courtyard? Would that kind of terminology help explain better? --JonTheMon 21:21, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
