Magic Crafters Hub

Dragons: 3

Gems: 300

Dragon Eggs: 2

When you arrive in the hub, go forward and jump over the two areas of icy water to see an egg thief in front of you. He will run to the left; you can charge and flame him right at the start of his run before he gets too far. Follow the pathway to the left and collect the gems at the end of the corridor. Backtrack to the path split and take the other path, charge attack the wizard and release Cosmos (1/3). After releasing Cosmos you will see four wizards in front of you. Walk to the left so you have them all lined up:

Collect all the gems before heading outside. You will see a wizard casting a spell in front of you. If you take too long to get to him, he will finish casting his spell and manipulate the ground so that it carries him upwards and out of your reach. So charge him quickly to defeat him before he has a chance to get out of your way.

You won’t be able to head up the right side of the cliff as there is another wizard who will cast a spell to block your way, so instead, head left and collect the gems around Alpine Ridge. Continue up the path to the top of the hill where you will find an egg thief running around in circles. You will see a few wizards in front of you that will block your way if you try to charge towards them. You’ll have to use the supercharge ramp which runs down the hill to the left to get past them. Before using the ramp, head down the hill to the right to defeat the wizard that was blocking your path earlier and collect a few gems.

Head up the supercharge ramp to find the entrance to High Caves and save Zantor (2/3). Charge down the ramp and take out the wizard to clear the way. Continue along the tunnel to find the entrance to Crystal Flight and the final dragon Boldar (3/3) in front of you. Walk around the back of Crystal Flight to collect a few gems.

Turn around and go down the left pathway to head back outside. You will see a strong metal chest against the cliff on the left. The wizard on the far side of the cliff will be using his magic to move the cliff in and out, so be careful not be pushed into the icy water as you go past. Defeat the two wizards and follow the path around to the left and up the hill, where you will find the entrance to Wizard Peak.

Walk forward to the small patch of grass on the far side of the icy water and turn around to see a hole in the tower on the left which contains the key to the chest. Backtrack down the hill and take the lower path down to the balloonist. Collect the gems around the entrance to Blowhard. If you speak to the balloonist he will ask you to save a total of five dragon eggs to proceed to the Beastmakers World.

To find the locked chest, backtrack to the entrance to High Caves at the top of the supercharge ramp. Stand on the edge of the cliff looking out towards the Alpine Ridge entrance and glide around to the right to find an entrance in the cliff. Open the chest and collect the extra life, then glide back over to the main area and make your way to the top of the supercharge ramp.

Now it’s time to collect the final gems in the break the strong chest, so backtrack to the top of the supercharge ramp and charge down to the chest to smash it. Charge through the tunnel, take the turning on the right before Crystal Flight and charge forward to hit it.

Alpine Ridge

Dragons: 4

Gems: 500

Dragon Eggs: 1

When the level begins, turn around and collect the gems behind you. Walk along the path and take out the wizard on the ledge to the left and the large animal in the middle of the path. Continue along the route and avoid the pillar sliding across the path. Collect the gems to the right of the moving steps and then climb the steps when they are not flat. Walk forward through the archway to save Zane (1/4).

Climb the steps on the right of the archway and glide down to the area with the large wizard on the left. Make your way along to the right and defeat the three large wizards on the chequered floor. Climb the steps when the wizards have not moved them flat to the wall and collect the gems at the top.

Glide forward to the platform with the large animal. You will see an opening in the tunnel in front of you. Time your glide to make it through the tunnel when the door is down and kill the wizard moving the door. Walk through the tunnel and glide down to the area in front of you.

When the wizard in front of you has lowered the platform, glide over and rescue Eldrid (2/4). Continue upwards along the path and drop down into the square pit on the left to defeat the two large beasts and collect some gems. Continue upwards and go through the doorway on the left, where you can go down either pathway and collect the gems on each side, collecting the extra life and lighting the fireworks.

Backtrack up the steps and head left to the top of the stairs, saving Zander (3/4). Collect the chests around the level exit and down the archway on the left. Stand on the edge of the stony outcrop and you’ll see three pillars with fireworks below you:

Alpine Ridge Fireworks

Glide down to the archway and then over to the fireworks. You’ll have to light the fireworks and immediately jump to the next pillar to avoid being flung off the pillar when the fireworks go off. Once you’ve blown up all three explosives you’ll win:

Glide back over to the archway and rescue Kelvin (4/4). You will see an egg thief in front of you; chase him along the path and collect the gems along the route. Make your way back to the level exit and return to the hub.

High Caves

Dragons: 3

Gems: 500

Dragon Eggs: 2

Skill Point: Burn hidden painting

When the level begins, collect the gems in front of you but do not hop up onto the ledge. There are some pretty horrible spiders that are invincible to your normal attacks and can also chase you down pretty quickly. We’ll come back to those later, but for now, turn around and head up the grassy slope with the large wizards. Go through the narrow gap and kill the wizard casting tornadoes on the right. Continue up the slope and save Cyrus (1/3) at the top. Look to the left and glide down to the top of the building to collect a few more gems, then backtrack up to the top of the slope.

Glide across to the platforms containing the wizards casting spells to move the platforms side to side, and then glide across to the doorway to collect a few more gems. You will find the next skill point here (burn hidden painting). To burn the painting, jump forward into the room, turn 180 degrees in mid-air and breathe fire on the painting to the right of the doorway. Collect the chests in this room and then continue forward through the doorway in front of you.

Drop down onto the ledge below and collect the gems to the left before walking along the ledge to the right. Glide across to the grassy area to save Ajax (2/3). Ignore the spider in the cave on the right and walk forward to collect the two gold gems in front of you. Continue forward across the bridge and set off the fireworks in the room in front of you.

Leave the room and look to the left. Hop up onto the edge of the bridge and glide over to the left-hand-side room in front of you. Collect all of the gems in this room and then glide over to the room on your left to find an egg thief. Chase him down through the passageway and collect the gems as you go. Once the egg thief drops down off the ledge he will pause for a couple of seconds; this is where you can catch him. After collecting all the gems, leave the room via the way you came in and drop down off the edge. Don’t worry you won’t die here; a team of fairies will carry you over to the top of the supercharge ramp.

Charge down the ramp, jump over the abyss and glide into the doorway directly in front of you. Collect the gems and save Cedric (3/3) on the right. Drop back down over the edge and the fairies will carry you back to the top of the ramp. Charge back down the ramp but this time instead of charging over the abyss in front of you, turn to the right and charge into the cave to defeat the metalback spider (1/5). Collect the gems in this cavern (there are a few scattered around the edges and on ledges) and then climb the steps on the right.

In the next area, there will be a metalback spider as well as a wizard. Defeat the wizard and then climb the steps on the right, whilst avoiding the spider for now. Kill the wizard on the ledge to the right, turn around and run forward out of the caves to find a fairy. This fairy will give you a kiss to supercharge your flame breath, allowing you to defeat the metalback spiders. The superflame breath only lasts a few seconds so quickly run back through the caves and defeat spiders 2 and 3. You won’t have time to kill the final spider so return to the fairy.

Get another kiss from the fairy and drop down off the ledge behind her. Run along the grassy slope on the left until you reach the level start, enter the caves and kill the final two metalback spiders in the caverns in front of you (5/5). Killing the final spider will reward you with:

Arachnophobe in Spyro the Dragon
Bronze Trophy
Defeat all Metalback Spiders
  • Unlocked by 14,337 tracked gamers (70% - TT Ratio = 1.19) 20,532

Collect the remaining gems in the caves and then return to the top of the supercharge ramp. Charge back down the ramp and glide over to the doorway the right of the doorway you went through earlier, where you will find a ramp with some more gems. Return to the supercharge ramp and glide over to the open grassy area to the right of the doorways to find some gems and an egg thief running around a pool of water at the top of the slope.

Note: If you’ve missed any gems, backtrack to the caves and check the ledges around the outside, as it’s easy to miss gems here.

For a final time, return to the supercharge ramp and glide through the doorway in front of you to find the level exit portal on the right.

Wizard Peak

Dragons: 3

Gems: 500

Dragon Eggs: 2

When the level begins, instead of walking forward turn slightly to the left and glide across to a platform which runs around the outside of the building. Follow the ledge along and then glide over to another ledge on the left which contains some chests. Follow this ledge and use the whirlwind to make it up to the ledge above. Smash through the metal chest and collect the two red gems at the end of the ledge, then glide over to the ledge on the right. Make your way around the building and drop down to the ledge below. Walk to the end of this final ledge and look to the right, where you can glide over to the balcony outside the building.

Go inside the building, flame-attack the large wizard and drop down off the ledge. You can now make your way back to the start of the level and collect all of the gems as you go. After collecting the gems, climb the steps to the left of the ledge you jumped down from earlier. Make your way through the building and cross the bridge with the small electric wizard. You will see a large wizard high up on a ledge in front of you. We’ll come back to him later so for now, smash the chests around the water and enter the room on the left to save Jarvis (1/3).

Charge down the slope behind Jarvis and kill the wizards at the bottom (they can also be flamed). Run up the other side of the ramp to collect an extra life and a gem. Now it’s time to go back and defeat the large wizard on the high up ledge. The jump can be a little tricky and you might have to attempt it a few times; using a charge attack, run down the ramp and up the other side into the building. Follow the building around to the left and jump (still holding down charge) over the pool of water and up to the high ledge. Your charge attack should allow you to make the jump. Defeat the wizard, collect the gems and then return to the bottom of the supercharge ramp.

Charge down the supercharge ramp on your left and defeat the wizards at the bottom of the ramp. There are a couple of green gems on the ledge at the top of the ramp in front of you and if you hop up onto the ledge you will see a platform in the distance in front of you:

Wizard peak egg thief location

To reach it, charge down the ramp that you just ran down and jump over the top of the ledge (still holding cn_S) to catapult yourself over to the platform. On this platform, you will find some gems, and carefully make your way around the back of the wall to find the hidden egg thief and earn:

Silver Trophy
Egg Hunt35 (30)

  • Unlocked by 14,704 tracked gamers (72% - TT Ratio = 1.18) 20,532

Glide back over to the main area and defeat the three large gnorcs with clubs. Walk right and rescue Hexus (2/3), then charge down a supercharge ramp and smash the strong metal box which is against the wall near Hexus. When facing the wall, look to the right and go through the tunnel opening to collect the chests and gems. You will see some more floating platforms in front of you. As before, you will have to charge down a supercharge ramp and jump the large gap with your charge attack to make it over to the platforms.

Collect the gems on the first platform (including the ones behind the wall) and glide over to the right-hand side platform. Collect the gems here and glide over to the final platform, then glide back to the main area through the tunnel you came from. Make your way along the cliff edge to the right of you, climb the steps and defeat the egg thief running around the pool of water. Continue weaving up the cliff until you come to the final dragon Lucas (3/3) and the level exit. You should now have all the gems in this level, so use the exit portal to return to the hub.

Blowhard

Dragons: 1

Gems: 400

Skill Point: Ride a druid platform for 10 seconds

When the level begins, collect the chests on your right and walk forward along the pathway. This level is pretty simple and mainly consists of a single pathway up the side of the mountain, so it’s pretty hard to get lost.

Continue along the path, killing the enemies and collecting the gems, until you see Blowhard in front of you. He will lower himself down towards the ground as you approach him; simply run up to him and use your flame attack. He will drop a gem and move further along the level.

The doorway behind you and to the right will now be open. Walk through the doorway and jump onto the moving platform. Wait there for ten seconds to earn a skill point. Collect the gems on the lower pathway on the right and then hop over the moving platforms on the left. Hop up the step and go into a room on the right to save Altair (1/1).

Go back out of the room and continue hopping from platform to platform on the right. Careful with this next set of platforms; if you jump on them at the wrong time you will be propelled to your death below. Try to make sure the platforms are stationary when you jump on them. Exit the room, turn left and collect the gems along the ledge, then backtrack along the ledge the other way to face Blowhard again. After flame-attacking him, glide over to the snowy area in front of you and make your way up the pathway. Collect the gems and flame Blowhard a third time to defeat him. Collect the gems and continue up the pathway to find the final chest, rewarding you with:

Use the portal to return to the hub.

Crystal Flight

Gems: 300

This level is another flight challenge level. Before going for the trophy, collect the four sets of items within a single attempt. The recommended order to collect the items is as follows, and shown within the video:

Video by PS4Trophies

Fly forward and collect the 8 pink rings. Continue forward through the single archway, turn right and continue following the row of archways. After collecting the seventh archway, turn left around the edge of the large crystal and collect the final archway in front of you. Continue along the side of the large crystal and flame the 8 planes. After collecting all 8 you should have done a full loop around the crystal and will be back at the start of the golden chests. Collect the 8 chests perched on the crystals to finish the level.

Select 'retry' from the menu. Follow the line of pink rings, go through the first archway and the first directional fairy will be in front of you. Flame her, then turn right and continue along the line of archways. After collecting the seventh archway, the second directional fairy is in front of you. Flaming both fairies will reward you with:
