Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

Resident Evil Village’s “Find the Angels’ Masks: 4/4” and “Escape the castle” objectives take you through the Special Chamber, Hall of Pleasure, Armory, and Tower of Worship areas where you’ll find RE8’s Azure Eye, Silver Ring, Lady’s Lipstick, Dagger of Death’s Flowers, and Mounted Animal Skull and Mask of Pleasure key items.

In this Resident Evil 8 walkthrough, we’ll help you collect every item — like ammo, lei, rusted scrap, herbs, crystal fragments, and more — and find every key item with our maps and screenshots.

Table of contents

Treasure Map

First, let’s go find the treasure mentioned on the treasure map. Your goal is to get back to the basement — specifically the dungeon area below the Kitchen. You’re going to run into Lady Dimitrescu on the way. Do your best to juke around her — if you can, kite her back to the Hall of the Four and use the statues to slow her down.

Run through the Main Hall, Dining Room, and Kitchen, and then take the stairs down. In the basement, you’ll have to deal with a few vampires. Work your way around to the Iron Insignia Key door in the northeast corner.

Unlock it and head through.

Special Chamber

The door will lock behind you as you step into the Special Chamber. Turn right, grab the pipe bomb from the alcove, and then smash the crate for some lei. There’s also some handgun ammo in an alcove on the left.

Look to the left of the (fenced off) coffin. Toss the pipe bomb at the crumbling wall. There’s a tall brazier here we’ll use in a second. Step through the broken wall for some lei to the right and a crystal fragment to the left.

Line up the left hanging brazier with the tall torch. Shoot it once with your pistol to swing and light it.

Step around to the left and line up the lit hanging brazier with the one on the right. Shoot it again to swing it over and light the second hanging brazier.

Open the coffin to collect the Azure Eye.

Hall of Pleasure

From the basement, work your way back through the Kitchen, Dining Room, and Main Hall. Head upstairs and take the right (south) to the mask door on 2F.

At the end of the hall, use the Dimitrescu’s Key to unlock the door. Step through.

Smash the vase on the left for some handgun ammo.

In the center of the room, look straight up. There’s a crystal fragment on the ceiling.

On the right (west) side of the room, check the drawers for a Silver Ring.

If you examine it in your inventory > treasure menu, it’ll say it’s “Valuable / Combinable.” Combine it with the Azure Eye from the treasure map. (This makes it about four times as valuable to Duke compared to the individual parts.)

Finally, pick up the Mask of Pleasure. A gate will lock behind you, but don’t worry about it. Duck through the fireplace on the right.


On the other side, stand and turn left for rusted scrap.

Climb the stairs and turn left for some shotgun ammo and smash the crate for handgun ammo.

In the back right corner, there are two pipe bombs and a lockpick on a table. Grab those as the third (and final?) of Lady Dimitrescu’s daughters shows up.

On the left (south) wall, pull the bookcase to the side. Use the pillar and the boxes in the middle of the room to avoid the daughter, and toss a pipe bomb at the broken wall you exposed.

Keep kiting her into the cold air and use your shotgun to keep her at bay.

Once she’s dead, claim the crystal torso.

Head to the west end of the room, and look above the fireplace for a Mounted Animal Skull. Open your inventory, tab over to key items, and examine it. Flip it over and interact with the screw on the back to turn it into an Animal Skull. (Examine it again and flip it over to see it has a pattern on the back that matches the statue in the other room.)

Head back downstairs and through the fireplace.

Hall of the Four

Back in the Hall of Pleasure, interact with the statue and place the Animal Skull. That’ll unlock the gate. Make your way back down to the Hall of the Four, and place the Mask of Pleasure on the final angel bust.

This will unlock the door. Before you head through, visit the Merchant’s Room to save and shop.

Backtrack to pick locks and collect the Lady’s Lipstick

We also have two lockpicks and two locked drawers still in the castle. Use one in the room south of the Bedchamber for some shotgun ammo and the other on the second floor balcony of the Opera Hall for some sniper rifle ammo.

We’ve got one final place to clear before we continue. Head back to the Courtyard, and take the stairs in the southeast back up to Dimitrescu’s Chambers. There’s a room attached to the east side with a bathtub in it. In that room, open the drawer to find Lady’s Lipstick.

Run back to the Merchant’s Room one more time. Sell off any remaining valuables — including the Lady’s Lipstick — and buy anything you want. By this point, if you’ve been following our guides, you should have enough to fully upgrade all of your weapons and buy out all of Duke’s supplies.

Tower of Worship

Head through the doors leading west out of the Hall of the Four. There’s a pair of vases with rusted scrap and a(n) herb just inside. Continue outside.

There are two more vases to the left and right with lei and chem fluid.

Take the stairs up to the Tower of Worship.

Approach the coffin and collect the dagger inside. Presumably, this is the Dagger of Death’s Flowers we learned about in the Attic.

Things get interesting fast.

Lady Dimitrescu boss fight

When you’re in control again, Lady Dimitrescu will be at the top of some stairs. Shoot her — the human-ish looking part sticking out of her(?) back — a few times until she runs off.

At the top of the stairs, smash the vase and loot the handgun, shotgun, and sniper rifle ammo, along with the first aid med.

Head left to keep chasing Alcina. In the next area, she’ll chase you around a central tower. Just keep backing up and shooting her human-est part with your pistol or shotgun.

Eventually, she’ll fly off and perch on another part of the castle. Use your sniper rifle to keep shooting her.

She’ll come back and chase you around some more. Keep shooting.

When she smashes into the central tower, take the stairs to the top. Smash the vases for some handgun and shotgun ammo. When she busts through the roof, keep shooting.

Eventually, after a quick cutscene, you’ll end up in a new area and collect the Crystal Dimitrescu.

At the south end of the room, collect the dirty flask to unlock the door out.

Take a right, and duck into the shack with a boat out front (for some reason). Straight ahead, check the cabinet on your left for some rusted scrap.

On the other side of the room, read the Craftsman’s Note file and visit the typewriter.
