Macabre Sculpture Ward of Regret
8 Midnight Helix

In the uppermost hanging cage (use Levitate to reach or grab a winged enemy.)

Note: there is another way to reach it that can be tricky. You can grab one of the hanging bodies and start to attack it. It will begin to swing in wide circles. Hitting release at the proper time can send you into the cage.  

Double Vault or Levitate can be used to better control yourself midair after jumping from the body.  

The simplest way to reach the cage is by Levitating to the small platform where chest 14 is located--refer to the Midnight Helix section. Then levitate from that platform to the nearby hanging cage.

12 Warriors' Respite

On top of column/pillar south of fountain (partly hidden by vines).

13 Shrine of Futile Truths In the middle of a bush around the circular area in the center of the room. Msshrineoffutiletruths copy
14 Corridor of Emptiness Climb the rocky cliff face. Mscorridorofemptiness
15 Fortress of Remembrance

First playthrough:

  • On an upper ledge of the square tower (grab a succubus to get lifted up). This is easiest done by staying inside the square tower and waiting for a succubus attack. The succubus should be grabbed inside the square tower. It, then, is very easy to steer going up. There is also a Bitterblack Gear Lv.2 on the same ledge as the sculpture.

Additional playthroughs:

  • Succubi are replaced with other enemies.

Alternative Approach #1:

  • If succubi are replaced, grab and carry a strigoi from the entrance from the Corridor of Emptiness to about halfway between the tower and the door to the The Black Abbey. Don't try to bring it to the tower otherwise it will disappear and return to its spawn point. As it takes off, grab it and guide it to the tower. It may take several tries. To get the strigoi climb the ladder and wait for one to attack you. Once engaged ground it and carry it, putting it down and picking it back up when it struggles.

Alternative Approach #2:

  • There is a way to obtain the statue without strigoi, just go lower in the tower and summon an Elder Ogre with Rancid Bait Meat. Next lure him up the tower and jump off him, if you're a Magick Archer use Double Vault off him, use Sunflare to reach to the ledge. This method also works with the giant (poison spitting) undead. You need to use Instant Reset mid-air as soon as you reach the ledge with Sunflare, otherwise you will continue through the animation and not grab a hold the ledge (This is if you're jumping off the giant Poisoned Undead).

Run ahead of the pawns so they won't kill a potential ride. Grab a succubus. If some elevation is required, jump on the balustrade and then snare a succubus. Look towards the ledge on the tower and steer there. Note the Level 2 Gear and the Macabre Sculpture on the ledge,
