  1. Hit the switch in the northwest part of the map to lower two closets. Enter the one on the left and press on the Incan face to lower the floor, fighting demons and imps down here. The teleporter takes you to the top of the wall at the start with health bonuses and a green armor. (sector 332)
  2. Just before the switch that reveals the blue key, you will be in a small area where one of the walls has a candle in front of it. Press on this wall for a teleporter which takes you to a new area where you can climb up for a soul sphere. (sector 378)
