What You Need to Use Mirror Statues
You need to have the dual rapiers Sarmiento & Centella in order to use mirror statues. If you chose them as your starting weapon, you’ll be able to zoom around the map with help from the mirror statues right away.
All you need to do is hit the mirror statues with Sarmiento & Centella, and you’ll move a short distance in the direction that the mirror statue is pointing.
The Uses of Mirror Statues
Mirror statues in Blasphemous 2 are positioned strategically throughout the world so that you can use them to get past obstacles. These obstacles can be metal grates, ledges, and more. There are even a few platforming puzzles that require you to use mirror statues to get a reward.
Where to Find Sarmiento & Centella
If you didn’t pick Sarmiento & Centella as your starting weapon, you can find them later in the Palace of Embroideries area. To get these dual rapiers, head to the far right side of this region. Take a look at the map image below for their exact location—which is outlined in red.
To get there, start from the Prie Dieu on the far left of the Palace of Embroideries. This Prie Dieu is close to a teleportation room. From here, travel to the right in a straight line until you reach a room with two mirror statues and a chandelier in the middle.
It looks like you can jump on the chandelier, but you can’t—it’s a trick! Regardless, you need to drop down the hole in the middle of the room. Afterward, you’ll be in an underground corridor.
Once in this corridor, head right and you’ll find a round green statue that has many swords embedded in it. Interact with it and you’ll receive the Sarmiento & Centella. Following this, the game gives you a few short tutorial messages about using these dual rapiers.
To switch weapons at any time, press L1 on a PS5 controller, L on a Nintendo Switch controller, Left Bumper on an Xbox controller, and the Q key if playing on a PC.
In addition to using Sarmiento & Centella with mirror statues in Blasphemous 2, they can be useful in combat as well. In terms of damage output, they pale in comparison to the heavy-hitting Veredicto. Although the dual rapiers still possess high DPS (damage per second) due to a swift attack speed. Use Sarmiento & Centella in combination with the Ivy of Ascension to explore the farthest reaches of this dark yet vibrant landscape.
