Best tips and tricks in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown - Sargon interacting with Artaban in The Haven.

Parry, don’t dodge

While you can dodge enemy attacks, it’s much better to parry them when possible. The main reason is that parrying generates Athra Surge while dodging does not. Athra Surge bar generation can make the difference between winning and losing a fight, especially if you’re fighting a boss. Also, some opponents will have yellow, parryable attacks that, if you manage to parry, will deal a lot of damage and stagger them.

Unlock area maps

While exploring every new biome, you will find Fariba early on, hiding in some corner. After talking, she will give you the option to purchase an area map for 50 Crystals. Make sure to buy it every time since it’s extremely helpful to find any paths you’ve missed. Also, it’s very cheap.

Explore every corner

One of the best tips and tricks in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is to explore every corner of the map. Don’t focus only on the objective and the main story but search side paths as well. This way, you’ll earn more crystals and find rare amulets and collectibles.

Experiment with various amulet builds

The game includes a solid variety of amulets that you can equip. However, you have limited amulet slots. Since most of them are useful, it’s important to experiment with various amulet builds until you find the one that best suits your playstyle.

Don’t forget to upgrade your gear

As you’re exploring the map, you’ll eventually find certain fast-travel statues. If you have enough crystals when finding those, make sure to travel back to the central area (The Haven) and spend your crystals to upgrade your gear and weapons. Some of the best upgrades overall include increasing the number and efficiency of your flasks and the damage of your main weapon. Also, you can upgrade amulets if you’ve settled on which ones you like.

Complete training challenges with Artaban

In the central area with all the merchants called The Haven, you’ll be able to find Artaban on the top right side. He has various training challenges to help you get familiar with most combat mechanics. Some of them will teach you combos you didn’t know. Also, completing each challenge awards 50-100 Crystals, depending on the challenge type.

Buy hints whenever you’re lost

If you’re not sure where to go next, you can always head to The Haven. Next to all the merchants, you’ll find Fariba. At the cost of 50 Crystals, she will offer you a hint regarding where to go next. These hints are fairly detailed and always helped me find the next main story location, so I highly recommend using them when in doubt.
