Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Wellspring chase: how to escape the tentacle monster

Eeergh!

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps doesn't do away from the whole running away from big monsters shtick that the previous game had. In fact, the first big chase sequence has Ori running away from a monster that's pretty much just a mass of tentacles with teeth. Frankly I'm not surprised that running away from this monster is the only option.

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Wellspring chase

When you reach the top of the Wellspring, Ori will be snatched by a large mass of tentacles. It looks like Ori's about to be eaten, but Opher comes to your rescue and allow you to escape. What follows is an elongated chase sequence that we will show in its entirety in the video above. However, if you are unable to view this video, here is a step by step guide to escaping the tentacle mass in the Wellspring.

  1. Run to the right, then double jump and dash over the big gap.
  2. Double jump and dash into the post. It'll fall over with you on it.
  3. Jump and Bash off the lantern over the spike. Land on the rotating platform.
  4. Double jump and dash onto the next rotating platform, then onto the log.
  5. Jump into the log. The spikes will drop into the gap.
  6. Run as the log spins and jump over the spikes when they reach near you. Keep running until the spikes break and jump through the gap.
  7. Jump to the lantern, bash off of it over and under the wood, then dash forward. Use the grapple ability to latch onto the spinning moss platform.
  8. Double jump and dash high up towards the mossy cog. Stay on it as it swings downwards.
  9. Use the lantern to go over the spikes.
  10. Jump under the ruined wooden structure, then latch upwards to the lantern. Perform a second jump forwards to reach the second lantern before the spikes touch you. Grapple up the next two lanterns.
  11. Keep running until you reach the giant cog. There are lanterns on the vines that you can use to bash or grapple along until you reach the other end. Run to the right to end the chase sequence.
