The biggest highlight of the Dead Cells: Fatal Falls DLC is the talking pet sword, Serenade. When unlocked, it summons a sword that attacks nearby enemies. If 30 seconds pass without any enemies attacked by the sword, it returns to the inventory and starts a 30 seconds cooldown. Players can also manually call the sword to be held as a melee weapon. This guide will help you learn all there’s to know about how to unlock Serenade in Dead Cells: Fatal Falls DLC.
Enemies hit by the flying sword gain red marks, whereas, enemies hit while the sword was held gain blue marks. Attacking enemies with the opposite mark provides a 30% Critical Hit Chance, removing one mark and resetting the cooldown time of the sword. For example, if an enemy had blue marks and you let the flying sword attack it, it will grant 30% Crit.
How to Unlock Serenade in Dead Cells: Fatal Falls
In order to get their hands on Serenade, players will need to make their way to the Fractured Shrine area. Those of you who don’t know how to do that can check out our detailed guide on how to unlock Fractured Shrine in Dead Cells for more info.
Anyhow, once players have access to the Fractured Shrine, they will need to navigate the area until they’re able to find a few invisible platforms leading to a secret area. In order to find these invisible platforms, players must take note of the rain and the section from where rain droplets are bouncing off.
Once players have managed to get to the secret island in the Fractured Shrine, they’ll need to navigate their way through a series of traps and eventually get to a temple sealed off by three layers of breakable floors that require them to have access to the Ram Rune.
After players manage to break the floor and enter the temple, they’ll need to defeat a Stone Warden mini-boss, guarding the treasure room inside the temple. Once the Stone Warden has been defeated, players will be able to open the vault inside the treasure room to free Serenade and use it.
It’s important to remember that Serenade will force itself onto a skill slot and the actual blueprint will go inside the players’ inventory that must be delivered to The Collector. Another cool thing about Serenade is that if players manage to get two of them, one can be used to mark the enemies and the other can be used to deal damage.
That’s all we’ve got in how to unlock Serenade in the Fatal Falls DLC for Dead Cells. For more help on the game, you can check out our detailed Dead Cells wiki guides.
