The possessed cult leader known as Anna Puerta is the main stalker who’ll hunt for you and your team in the first stage of Devour. To increase your chances of survival, you’ll need to know a few things about her – including how to calm her down.
How to Calm Anna in Devour
When she first spawns, Anna won’t pose much of a threat until she starts her “hunt”. When she does, she’ll start running around the house trying to kill the players and the only way to stop her for a while is to calm her down. You can do this by flashing your UV light at her for a couple of seconds.
Now, each time you’ll calm Anna, she will get more violent when starting a new hunt. But, more importantly, her aggressiveness will also rise when you burn more goats at the altar. After burning three, you will have to stun her twice before she’ll be calm, and when the exorcism will better its final stage after burning 7 goats, she’ll need to be stunned three times. On top of that, she’s going to stay calm for a much shorter period of time in her final phase.
The Red Eyes
Anna cannot be stunned when her eyes glow red, which happens after burning enough goats. At this point, your best bet is to either run or hide from her. Keep in mind that Anna is also sensitive to your regular light, making her notice you if you keep it on. In later stages, she also actively hunts you, so calming her might be a waste of time.

Access the Thutmose’s Secret Base. Just say the word!
The newly added map location, Sumeru, is an island that has a lot of secrets that are yet to be discovered. One of which is the password for you to enter Thutmose’s Secret Base.
Looking for the password and unlocking the base is [art of the Hidden Mercenaries quest. In order to finish the quest, you must be able to find out the password to the pyramid.
The location of this pyramid can be found between the Valley of Dahri and the Dune of Elusion. If you try to access this, you will need to approach the Operate Device and it will ask you for the password. Since you still haven’t learned the password, Paimon will give a suggestion on how you can know Thutmose’s Secret Base password.
Find out the secret base’s password by reading through the end of this guide.
Once you interact with the Operate Device, there will be nothing you can give since you still do not know the secret password yet. From there, Paimon will ask you to listen and follow some Eremites around which you will be doing.
To start with that, you have to look for an Eremite NPC walking around. But it will be not just any Eremite NPC. You have to look for the one with the light sign on the head.
With that, try to walk to the east of the pyramid. As you go through that side, you will see a lady Eremite. Since this is a secret password, you can’t just walk to her and ask for the password because there is no way she will give it to you.
Having said that, you have to switch from running to walking. Keep a close distance from the lady but make sure she doesn’t see you, so make sure to follow her stealthily.
From time to time, the Eremite will have short monologues that you have to pay attention to.
After a few minutes of following her, the lady Eremite will mention to herself the password to the pyramid: Marg bar parvezravan.
Now that you already know the password, go back to the front of the pyramid entrance. Interact again with the Operate Device, and choose the first option.
