When Kain disappears, turn around quickly to find and attack him. If you're fast enough, you'll avoid a lot of damage. When he disappears again, locate and attack him again

is there any other catch to it. it seems that by the time i get to kain he is all powered up and zaps me. is there a way for mr to move faster? is there a way for me to avoid the blast from the reaver?

Run immediately at Kain when you spot him and punch him as he charges the weapon. He'll disappear and materialize behind you in the same position at the opposite side of the room. You must punch him about three times to successfully fend him off. You'll likely get sent back to the spectral plane a number of times before you're successful.

I found the simplest way for me was to stand just over the stair that leads up to the pillar, this limits Kain to appearing in only two places, and you can choose where he appears by turning your back, he will always appear behind you, so as soon as you hear his transportation sound immediately turn and run.

Hope that helps

i'll try that, thanks.....how long can i expect it to take for him to go down? once i start hitting him can he still charge the soul reaver? duz he have any other wat to hert me? sorry for so many questions, but it seems like a hard task.

You only have to hit Kain 3 times. If you just run at him and attack (don't try and autoface, you'll lose preciuos time) he'll go down in no time.

thanks.... i'm off to fight kain, and hopfully get the soul reaver for my self. is this the best way to reply: back to my origanal post. or is it best to reply directly to those who answer me? what gets people to look at what i posted and reply?

To add my two cents... Kain always comes back in one of three locations, and these are the same every time. What's more, if you get zapped to spectral, when you come bakc to the material plane, he is always in the same place, directly opposite the room. So if nothing else, make sure you're facing that direction before you shift, and then just run straight at him and hack away...
