Requirements To Unlock The Cage Of Binding

Unlocking the Cage of Binding is a process that requires you to collect a series of Materia in chests and explore areas in the game.

Below, I will write the requirements:

  • Complete the game’s main storyline until Chapter 10 to reach the “Depths of Judgement.”
  • Secondly, the area has four stone slabs, each with verses from the Loveless Prologue. Please read them.
  • Thirdly, reach the Lake of Oblivion and take down the formidable ‘Judecca’ enemies.
  • Finally, you have now reached the Cage of Binding.

Here is what I recommend you do before you continue:

  • Save the game at the Depths of Judgement.
  • Collect all the materia in there, as it will be needed afterward.

Unlocking The Cage Of Binding

I have noted everything you need to do to reach the Cage of Binding. But it can get quite confusing. Finding all the Loveless slabs and going through the lake of oblivion is explained below!

The Loveless Act Locations

Loveless prologue (Cage of Binding)
Loveless prologue
  • Prologue Loveless: Reach the save point in the Depths of Judgement. Now, you should be right next to the first slab. Before moving on to the others, examine them to read the text.
Loveless ACT I (Cage of Binding)
First Loveless Act 
  • Loveless Act I: Discover this slab in the south tunnel leading to the Lake of Oblivion. The fact that this slab is outside of where you need to go suggests that it is the last one. But there are more left.
Loveless ACT II
Second loveless act
  • Loveless Act II: Found at the end of the walkway before you. There is a barred gate that leads to the Behemoth King. You shouldn’t have too much trouble beating him.
  • Head east from the Depths of Judgement to Howling Fang. There are many cells in Howling Fang.
  • You can grab anything within the cells by using the valves to unlock the cells, then go on to the slab at the end of the area.
Loveless ACT III
Third loveless act
  • Final Loveless Act III: The final slab can be found by leaving the Depths of Judgement to the west. After that, reach the Portal of Severance area. Inside, you’ll find the Act III tablet right before you.

Lake Of Oblivion

After reviewing the slabs, you can move on to the Lake of Oblivion. The entrance to the Cage of Binding in the Lake of Oblivion lies to the south. Additionally, there are three other exits from this location (on top of the one you came in by).

Don’t forget to collect the chests you will find here, as they have key items you need later in the binding cage.

You will see glowing spots on the water once you reach the lake. Five of these spots have crystals above them. A ‘Judecca’ enemy will descend when you engage with these.

The Cage Opener Trophy

Reminder: This will also unlock the Cage Opener Trophy/Achievement!

Additionally, there should be a cutscene when a Mako bridge appears to lead to the next section. You must engage with all five spots and defeat the enemies to unlock the Cage of Binding.

Once you have eliminated all the enemies, the Trophy will appear when you have finished.

Tip to defeat the enemies: Allow them to avoid your attacks, then pursue them to capture them while losing their invincibility. This needs to be done, as they are pretty dodgy!

My Experience With Unlocking The Cage Of Binding

After completing this prison, you will return to the location where you originally read the LOVELESS Act II slab. Overall, the experience was tricky, but I am sure this will not happen with you. Ensure you incorporate all the tips and tricks I have shared above to defeat the enemies as this is the only crucial portion of overall strategy.
