Back to Legend of Grimrock 2

To get into the Pyramid of Umas you’ll need to find the Serpent Staff from the Herder’s Den. Use the special attack on the doors and they will open.

The first level of the pyramid is split in half, on the west side you have the Tomb of the Forgotten and on the east side the Tomb of the Highborn. Pick up the Tomb Keys from both of them to open the inner chambers and complete the puzzle. This level is guarded by Giant Snakes and Medusa. It also hides 5 secrets and the stairs to the Tomb Underground.
