The Last King: Walkthrough

The Last King begins immediately after you fast travel to Reverie at the end of the last quest.

This linear mission has you ascending the Reverie tower. Proceed forward and fight a group of Fallen baddies. Go through the door.

Ascend the elevator, then fight the bombs. Go through another door. Fight the next lot of Fallen and continue through the next door.

Ride another elevator up and fight the Fallen on the walkway. Up ahead is a Purple Bavarois to fight. Once it's down, go through the next door.

Continue through another door, and ride the next elevator up. Yet more Fallen enemies await, followed by yet another door to open. Ahead, defeat all the enemies that descend into the room. Open the next door.
