Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Glitches

  • Invisible Weapon

    Ok, First equip a axe and a sword. Swing the axe, and when your axe is about halfway in the swing switch weapons. BANG! Your swinging nothing. This works with other things like swords, but they are harder to do. The downfall is, it wont hurt enemies, but its cool!

  • Fastest Way to Get Money

    To get money really fast and easy you need a couple things.

    1. You need a Mimic soul.
    2. You need to have a fairly high defense, around 70-80.

    First you go to the Subterrainian Hell and you equip your Mimic soul. Then you go to the area with spikes that you have to use puppet master on to get through. Then you stop at the first spike and walk into the spikes. If you did it right a $500 bag will drop on the ground right where you are. If you are around lvl. 75-80 then you can do this 4 times. Then you go over to the save room to replenish your HP and MP. You just keep repeating. Rate: around $20,000/5 min.

  • Iron Golem

    First go to "demon guest house" and try and find the Iron Golem. Next, when you have found it, keep trying to kill it until you get its soul. When you gets its soul, equip it and you'll turn into the Iron Golem.

  • Attack Faster

    If you have a heavy weapon like a great sword, slow attacks can be a problem. To hit an enemy twice quickly, stand very close to them and attack. Then just as it connects, press L to dash backwards. As soon as it stops, you can attack again; if you are still close enough it should hit. This is quicker than just attacking twice normally.

  • Defeating Dmitri

    If you have a Witch Soul, let Dmitri copy it. The projectile attack from this soul is fairly easy to avoid and will make this fight much easier.
