Use the new debris in the back to climb up the left wall. Follow along the path and watch the scene. Death's attack pattern is fairly simple, Just block and attack when he's close. *** Florence *** -FLRNCE- Fight your way through the graveyard, then head up and out. There's a save point just before entering the monestary if you want to use it. Head inside for a short scene. Quickly dispose of enemies in the next section; if you take too long the floor will crumble beneath you. When the cross falls, run over it to a hole in the wall to the right. Jump onto the ledge, then turn left and jump off. Follow the ramp down and quickly take out all enemies to lower the gate at the end. Head through and open the fountain. Jump off of the walkway ahead and move forward to see some debris fall. Use the Holy Cross to douse the flaming zombies before killing them with your scythe. Move ahead and kill the next wave while avoiding the flames shooting out of the walls. Follow the path and save before jumping down. Talk to Virgil for some information and a new Magic: Righteous Path. Take out the enemies when they come. A large beast will break through the wall and attack. When the R2 prompt appears above it, do it and follow the sequence for a ride. After taking out some more enemies, head to the gates. There's a save point just as you land. Jump onto the wall and make your way to the left. *** Shores of Acheron *** -ACHRON- Grab the fountain when you get to it, then continue along the wall. Talk to Virgil at the end. Talk to Virgil a second time to receive [RELIC]Death Blade. Double jump onto the ledge just to the left of Virgil for [Silver Coin 01]. Move ahead for a scene. Use the lever on the right to extend the bridge and summon some enemies. The flying creatures will respawn until you move across, so hit the lever again and dash across the bridge. Grab the fountain before descending. Take out the enemies here then use the lever in the center of the room. Move the lever and head up above the door to find [Silver Coin 02] on the left. Jump back down and raise the platform to the sparkling wall. Hit it with your scythe a few times to reveal a door. Turn all the way left, but don't go down the stairs, for a soul fountain. Go back to the doorway and head right for another soul fountain before talking to Virgil. Continue talking to Virgil until he disappears for more dialogue. Move across the bridge. After the battle, talk to the glowing soul to the left of the door. Head through the door. After the fight, leave the room and look behind the statue for [Silver Coin 03]. Head back and save if you wish, then jump and grab onto the rope leading to Acheron. Move along the wall and head past the first opening, jump across, and climb to the second opening to find [RELIC]Charon's Oar. Head back and into the first opening you passed. Inside, grab the crate and drag the box to the short ramp on the right of the room, then push it into the little cubby on the right. Use the lever to move the platform towards the screen until you can get the box on the other side. Drag the box all the way to the left and use it to reach the ledge above for [Silver Coin 04]. Now drag the box to the short area on the other side of the lever, then move the platform back to its starting position. Jump on the box then double-jump to reach another shade. Climb up the wall and out at the top. Take out enemies as they come. A big guy will eventually show up; you can grab the smaller enemies to become temporarily immune to his attacks. Once you have control of the beast, take out the enemies that come. Once the orb appears near Acheron's head, move to it and follow the prompts. Once on the wall, quickly make your way up as it will fall with you still on it. Quickly get across the bridge at the top. As the tower falls, jump and hit R1 to swing across. *** Limbo *** -LIMBO1- Save if you wish, then talk to Virgil until he disappears. Move left and down the wall. Grab the ghoul and throw it at the sparkling wall to reveal a passageway. Turn left when you see Acheron's head to find [Silver Coin 05]. Head back and move past the head to find a Beatrice Stone and the [RELIC]Eye's of St. Lucia. Now stand next to Acheron's head and follow the prompt to knock it down for a trophy/achievement. Head through the only door on the right. After the battle, head out the doorway at the top of the room. Talk to Virgil until he disappears for [RELIC]Lord's Blessing. Move through the door next to him, then through the next door to find a shade. Head back, then up the spiraling ramp and through the door at the top. Follow the path all the way around and enter the next door. Turn left to find Virgil. Talk to him until he disappears. Move up the ramp and open the fountains to refill your bars. Once you're on the upper area, move to the left side and double jump to a ledge with a lever. Use it to lower the statue and grab [RELIC]Saladin's Mercy. Head back up the ramp and pull the lever. Save before swinging across to King Minos. -- King Minos -- Keep moving so that you don't get hit by the tentacles from the floor. When the larger ones on the wall move, and Minos moves back, use R1 to grapple onto the wall to evade his next attack. Attack his lowered head, then move in and attack the fleshy part of his body. Some lesser ghouls will be summoned; dispose of them. When he slams his hand down and the R2 prompt appears, quickly use it and follow the prompts to reveal his fleshy part again. More smaller enemies will appear; take them out. When Minos lowers his face, attack it. Follow the prompts. Acquire [RELIC]Tail of Minos. ---------------- Swing across the gap and head down the passage. Save the game before heading down. Wall run and jump across to the next rope. Climb all the way to the top to find [Silver Coin 06]. Head back down the rope and look to the right, above the next rope, to see two corpse pillars. Swing over to them, then climb all the way up for [RELIC]Francesca's Book. Drop down the right pillar, then drop to the rope below. Slide to the bottom of the rope and use it to swing across to the pillar of corpses. Slide down and jump down to the next rope. Wall run and attack the link with your Scythe to break it. Continue moving across,then down the pillar of corpses. Grab the shade. *** Lust *** -2DLUST- Head down the path and dodge the pink orbs as you move along the bridge. Move to the third statue on the left. Turn to the left and towards the foreground to find a climbable wall. Climb down to get [RELIC]Filippo's Rage. Move all the way to the last statue, and move to the left of it to find a climbable wall. Move across the wall to find [Silver Coin 07]. Head back and talk to Virgil at the end until he disappears. Use the lever at the second statue on your left, timing the dial to move and shoot the pink ball of energy back at the whirlwind. Quickly follow behind it and head inside the opening. Holy Cross works well against these new enemies; they'll dodge most of your scythe attacks. After taking out the enemies, use the newly accessible lever on the left side of the room to lift part of the snake. Once the snake head is up, run over and destroy the teeth. Lift the snake again and quickly use the tongue to jump to the area above. Talk to Virgil until he disappears for [RELIC]Tristan's Desire. Look to the right of Virgil to find a small platform you can jump to with some souls. Head back and look to the left of the circular platform for a save point and a lever. Before using the lever, get onto the circular platform and pull the statue in the middle at the back. Just stick it anywhere on the platform, then go back and hit the lever. Now jump onto the raised circular platform and look to the left for a ledge with [Silver Coin 08] on it. Jump back to the platform and look to the right side for another ledge with a soul fountain and a lever. Use the lever to open the top gate and quickly jump back onto the platform to rise up. Take out the enemies that spawn first. Once they are down, Cleo will attack. When she hits the platform, watch for the button prompt to live. Clear out the next set of enemies for a closer look at Cleo. Take out the next set while attacking her hand. There's a life fountain on the right if you need it. Eventually a new outcropping will show up on the left, along with a magic fountain and a ledge with a lever. Hit Cleo's hand until she lets go of the platform, making it rise, then quickly head left and pull the lever to turn the snake heads. Drop down and attack her hand again, this time jumping onto the ledge on the right side of the field. The platform will rise; take out enemies as they come. When you reach the top, take the left path for a magic and health fountain, then go back and take the right path for a soul fountain. Head down the corpse pillar to find a shade. Jump back up and grab onto the corpse pillar. Take the left path and head down the wall. Avoid the pink beams as you work your way across. At the end you'll find a save point and a shade to the right. After doing whatever you do to the shade, drop off of the ledge just to the right of her. Grab the [RELIC]Arrow of Paris, then head to the left and leap over to the wall and climb back up to the save point. Look to the left of the save point to find a short path you can jump to. Head over, then jump onto the ledge to grab [Silver Coin 09]. Head back to the save point and climb up the wall just to the right of it. -- Cleopatra -- She will release her lacky Antony. Watch out for Cleo's attacks while you chop off Antony's health. Once it has gotten low enough, she will heal him. During this time, run up and attack her hand. Rinse, repeat. Righteous Path is very useful, as it will knock Antony off of balance with a dead-on hit. Defeat Antony to receive [RELIC]Antony's Standard. Follow the button prompts to get rid of Cleo and receive a new Magic: Lust Storm. --------------- Watch for debris as the platform falls. Take out all enemies. When the platform begins to break apart, the only "safe" place is the bit on the far side. Be ready to use R1 to hook onto a grapple point. Swing across until you get to Virgil. Talk to him until he disappears. Follow the path for a health fountain and a soul fountain, then head down the corpse pillar. Drop down to the rope and make your way across. Drop down the corpse pillar and onto the next rope, then break the chain link with your scythe as you run near it. Jump across and swing to the corpse pillar. Head down and drop onto the rope. *** Gluttony *** -GLTTNY- move to the right to find [RELIC]Rain of Gluttony. Get back onto the rope and head left. Talk to Virgil until he disappears. Slide down the corpse pillar and jump off to meet Cerberus. -- Cerberus -- Dodge the pukeballs and move to one of the lil mounds in the area and break it with R1. If Cerberus tries to bite during this time (usually will) the head will get fried and drop down. Use this opportunity to attack it. Rinse and repeat. Follow prompts when prompted to. Acquire [RELIC]Azrael's Apprentice. -------------- Head across the gray thing in the background and follow the path. Open the fountain where the worm grabs you for [Silver Coin 10]. Use the health and magic fountains, then climb down into the toothy area. After the enemies are gone, move ahead for a shade. Save at the statue before continuing if you want. In the next area, stay out of the waste. Move up two platforms and wait for the mouth to open to get another shade. Move one platform to the right of this mouth and jump onto the rope to move across. Head into the next mouth and follow the path to Virgil. Talk to him until he disappears for [RELIC]Ciacco's Bile. Head down the passageway and take down the enemies when they appear. Use the fountains before heading into the gateway. Watch the scene. Use an in-and-out to avoid being covered in bile. Once it's dead, head into the far portal and pull the lever on the new area. Head back through the right portal and all the way to the right of this strip to a climbable area. Move up it and look right for a soul fountain. Continue up the wall for [Silver Coin 11]. Head all the way back and use the lever at the bottom of the climbable area. Quickly head through the left portal and run onto the new wooden platform and use it to jump across to the bottom path. Open the soul fountain. Watch the moving table, and when it seems to spin in place under the portal that is facing down at the top left of the screen, head through the right portal. Jump to the right before it goes through the portal on the left for a soul fountain. Head down the path and grab the soul fountain next to the save point, then head down the corpse pillar. Drop down to the rope and swing over to another corpse pillar. Climb all the way up and grab [Silver Coin 12] and [RELIC]Octavian's Gold. Head back down the pillar. Drop down to the rope below and quickly move to the left. Drop down to the next rope, and drop all the way down and off of it. Push the tooth-looking object all the way to the left to put out the flames, and wait a few seconds. Now push it all the way back to it's starting position quickly, and grab the rope and swing across before the flames come back fully. Destroy the link. Head down the corpse pillar and drop down to the rope below. Make your way to the left and drop down. Be ready to hit R1 to catch a grappling point and swing over to the left. Jump across to the rope, slide down, then jump across to the corpse pillar. Head all the way down here and drop off. *** Greed *** -GREED4- Follow the path. When you come to a large wall, climb it and look to the right for a ledge you can jump up to. Open the soul fountain, then jump across the opening to the left and onto the other platform. Jump again towards the left and grab [Silver Coin 13]. Drop down and hang off of the ledge in the foreground. Move to the right while hanging, then rise up while behind the rock to find [RELIC]Crown of Carthage. Jump down, then back up on the left side. Grab the magic and health fountains if you need them. Get back onto the ledge on the right. Look in the background of the screen, on the left, just under the archway to see an orange pedestal. The timing can be tricky, just keep trying. Jump once off of the right ledge then, as soon as you have cleared the arch, hit the double-jump and you should grab onto the ledge. Pull yourself up for the second of three Beatrice Stones. Drop down and head down the path. Watch the scene, then talk to Virgil until he disappears. Move across the moving platforms and make your way to the molten gold. Make your way to the upper level using the next two platforms, then pull the lever at the top. Quickly take out enemies; you must do so before the cauldron fills and you're encased in gold. Pull the lever again when it appears and quickly move across the platform. Save if you wish, then head right and onto the spinning cogs. Once you get on top of the highest cog on the left, double jump onto the top-most horizontal cog. The tricky part: jump towards the screen and to the right and try to grab onto the ledge just at the end of the vertical cog. Grab the shade, then continue along the cogs to the left. Grab the magic and health fountains before heading through the door. You'll meet a new enemy in the next room. When it spins just dodge it until it stops or use Righteous Path to knock it out of the spin. Once you've killed the first one, you can ignore the others and just constantly Punish/Absolve the little ghouls since they seem to spawn endlessly (only recommend exploiting this if you've focused solely on one path until now and want to level the other slightly, as the experience needed at higher levels would require you to do this for hours). Once you've taken out all of the enemies, use the lever. Once the walls drop, jump up onto the ledge in the back of the room for [Silver Coin 14]. Drop down and hit the lever again, then quickly jump onto the ledge and move on top of the sliding wall as it comes down. Quickly move to the right and jump into the small alcove for [RELIC]Demon's Wing. Drop down and climb onto the ledge in the back. Quickly, hit the lever, drop down, hit the bottom lever, climb back up, move onto the sliding wall, and jump through the slightly open door. Hit the lever in the next room to move down. In the next area, jump all the way to the right and off the edge. There are two fountains here, one is just a soul fountain, the other has [Silver Coin 15]. Climb up the wall all the way to the left. You need to move from platform to platform around the room moving counter-clockwise. When you get to the door, look to the right for a shade. Grab it, then head back and through the door. Use the lever here to stop the spinning mechanism. Turn back and jump across to the center to get [Relic]Wasted Gold. Head back and go through the next door. Grab the health and magic fountains here, then save at the statue. Use the lever in the next room. The walls will begin to close in as enemies spawn. Use the lever as much as possible and use abilities to knock the enemies away, then head to the right. Once all the enemies are down, use the big guy to force open the door. Open the door ahead of you and follow the passage. Talk to Virgil until he disappears then climb up the wall. Follow the wall all the way to the right to find [Relic]Coin of Plutus. Now head up and then to the left. When you are about to come out from behind the gate, look in the corner to see a small strip of climbable area. Move down it for [Silver Coin 16]. Now move up, all the way left, then up and into the next area. Use the grapple point to swing over to the rope. Move across it and drop down at the end. Kill the enemy to the left, then head down the path on the right while grabbing all of the fountains. The second fountain contains [Silver Coin 17]. Pull the lever, then head back to the circular platform. You can use Righteous Path to knock the Hoarders&Wasters out of their spin. When the platforms tilt, jump across to the next one. When the platform comes to a stop, drop off and grab the health and magic fountains. Jump onto the middle platform and use the lever. Head to the newly uncovered lever to spawn some enemies; kill them. Turn the middle platform to the left and to the right to destroy each sides pillar. Climb the pillar on the right to find some souls and [Silver Coin 18]. Head back and up the left pillar to find a save point. Head through the door. Open the fountains as you move down the path. Use the lever to lower the next platform. Talk to Virgil until he disappears. Jump across the gap. Defeat the enemies, then use the lever to turn the center dais. Turn it so that you have a platform stairway to Plutus' left hand, then get on and jump across. Use the save point then head through the door. Climb across the rope and talk to Virgil until he disappears. Continue ahead. Once the enemies are dead look to the left of the large dais for a soul fountain. Head through the opening on the right. Swing across to the cogs and make your way to the left and jump across the gap to reach the door. Climb across the wall and look to the left of the next door for a shade. Save, then head through the door. Use the lever in the next area to move down. Use the next lever on the left to drop down and fight one of the giant beasts. Once you gain control of it, another enemy will drop down. Once you've killed everything you'll be able to move the large block in the back. Climb onto the wall here and work your way down. When the block appears, move it back and all the way to the right. Set it atop the square pattern against the wall to lower Plutus. Quickly climb the wall and jump across the new gap, as the box slowly disintegrates. Take out enemies as they come, then watch the scene. Force the Dais off the platform for a battle. -- Pops -- Try to stay behind him as much as possible. He'll occasionally throw a spinning cross that will hit you four times; block it. Once you've made him kneel once, he'll stick a cross into the ground that will continue to pulsate, emitting a small shockwave within its radius; stay away from it. The battle area will slowly get smaller as the fight progresses. After he kneels for the second time, he'll start casting Sins of the Father. Try very, very hard not to let him use it in the center as it will always hit you there; try to keep him at one edge of the area. Acquire new Magic: Sins of the Father and [RELIC]Eye of Alighiero. ------------ Head towards the door in the background. Turn left of the door and jump up to a ledge for [RELIC]Hoarder's Purse. Use the save point to the right of the door, then go on through. Use the lever to move the platform. Take out all enemies, then use both fountains before pulling the next lever. *** Anger *** -ANGER5- Follow the path and head down the corpse pillar at the end. Make your way down and destroy the link. Swing across and drop down the corpse pillar. As soon as you land, head towards the foreground for a soul fountain. Talk to Virgil until he disappears.

Jump on the mound ahead and quickly turn left to find a grapple point to swing from. Pull the crate ahead back a little bit, but not all of the way. Jump on top of it, then jump again to find a ledge with [Silver Coin 19]. Drop down and pull the box all the way back and onto the platform. Head into the new opening and talk to Virgil until he disappears for [RELIC]Medusa's Call. Climb along the wall to the left. Once across, kill all enemies and look to the right side of the screen. Use the Holy Cross to break the gate, then jump across for a shade. Head back and up the path at the top. Break the health fountain and grab onto the rope overhead. Move all the way across to find a magic fountain and the third (and final) Beatrice Stone. Head back and drop down onto the circular platform.

Head to the left and enter the room for a scene. Once you regain control, look to the right side of the room for a shade. Use the lever afterwards and jump onto the ledge ahead quickly, before the flames return. Move the gear to the left to make the platform rise. Move it to the right when it stops. When it stops again, break the panel and move it to the left. When it stops again, move it towards the right but stop in the center. The next time it stops, break the far left panel and move the gear slightly over so that it goes up. At the top, break both panels and move the gear all the way to the right to bring down a platform. Jump onto the climbable wall there and pull the lever. Move all the way to the right, past Virgil and past the fountain, to find [RELIC]Guiding Flame. Now go back and break the fountain for [Silver Coin 21]. Now talk to Virgil until he disappears. Head down the corpse pillars. Turn left just as you land for a shade, then save to your right. Board the circular platform. Stay on the platform and use Holy Cross to kill the flying creatures. Try not to jump as it is very easy to fall off of the platform. When you reach land, follow the button prompts and meet Phlegyas. Take out the smaller enemies while avoiding the big guys attacks. When the gate lowers, break the fountains and follow the path. Swing across the gap and pull the lever near the gate. Take out more enemies to lower the gate. Break the fountains past the gate, then go back and pull the lever to raise the bridge. Take on a ton of enemies, eventually the elevator at the far end will be accessible. Pull the lever when able to. Watch the scene. You now have control over Phlegyas, move him through the pathway ahead and break down the gates. Move forward and follow the path. You can break the towers along the way for 150-200 souls each. When you can't progress farther, stomp the ground a few times for a short scene. *** Heresy *** -CTYDIS- Swing across the ropes to the left. Break the support at the last rope, then climb all the way up and onto the ledge to find a save point. Head to the left and use the lever to pull the spikes back.

Dispose of this next wave, then continue down the corridor. Move along the climbable wall and into the next hallway. Run quickly towards the larger enemy before it activates the lever.

Head through the door at the other end. Before pulling the lever, move all the way to the back of the room and look to the right to find [Silver Coin 23]. Grab the crate in the wall and drag it all the way back to the lever. Put the crate to the left, then pull the lever. Quickly push the box back so that the pourer doesn't reset its position. Backtrack until you have to fight a heretic. Now move to the right and climb the newly accessible wall. Enter the next door. In the next room, wait on the first platform until the next one gets low enough to jump to. As it rises, look to the right for a ledge to jump to with [Silver Coin 24] and [RELIC]Seal of Epicurus.

Acquire [RELIC]Francesco's Forgiveness. --------------- Take out enemies as the platform descends. When it comes to a stop, use the fountains if you need to and save. *** Fraud *** -FRAUD8- - TIP - This is a fantastic place to get your Poetry in motion (666 hit combo) achievement/trophy. Set the difficulty to its highest setting and just spam Sins of the Father. You will have unlimited mana so all you need to worry about is getting knocked down (Thanks to Kris for pointing this out to me). You can also get this trophy/achievement during the challenge to kill 5 enemies in the air, as they will respawn until you do; just don't kill any in the air and get to building your combo. Move forward a bit for a scene and a fight. Afterwards, continue ahead. Grab the shade on the ledge to your right. Drop down and head through the door. Use the lever to descend. Move ahead and through the next door. Get onto the moving platform, and head to the platform on the other side. Move ahead and climb across the wall after the fight. Save if you need to, then continue ahead. Swing across and do the next challenge. Move ahead and pull the lever. Be ready to jump off of the platform or you will fall to your death. Head through the next door for another challenge. Move ahead and grab on to the rope. Drop down to the corpse pillar, then down to another rope. Move all the way across to find a shade. Move ahead and save/ use the fountains as necessary, then head through the next door. This one is annoying, but can be beaten cheaply. Get one of the demons to low health, hit R2 and punish them. If you get the kill where you are chopping off its head, hit circle/A SLOWLY so you aren't thrown off quickly, but you also don't kill it quickly. You should be able to last 8-10 seconds this way and you're done. Move ahead and destroy the gear. Be ready to jump off to the left as you pass the opening. Save or whatnot, then head through the next door. Make your way through the slight rope puzzle ahead, then move through the next door for another challenge. Be ready to use a grapple when the bridge falls. Move ahead for another save point and more fountains, then through the next door for another challenge. Move ahead and make your way down the climbable wall for a familiar passage. After the challenge, head over and down the corpse pillar. Drop off to the rope below and move all the way to the right before dropping to grab onto the wall. Climb up to another passageway. Move across the bridge after the challenge and pull the lever. Be ready to jump to the right. As soon as you land, grab the shade before proceeding. Head through the door to the final challenge. Once this one is done, head across the bridge for a scene. Move ahead and talk to Virgil until he disappears. Move along the path and grab the shade before saving. *** Treachery *** -TRCHRY- Head down the corpse pillars and onto the rope below. Head across to the other end and drop down for a fight. Be careful of the giants' breath as you fight here; it will blow you off of the area. Once all enemies are down, use the grapple point to swing to a rope. Break the ice and jump across to the corpse pillar. Move all the way up and onto the ledge above for a shade and two soul fountains. Head back down the corpse pillar and swing across the gap. Head all the way down the next corpse pillar and talk to Virgil until he disappears. Head along the path ahead and, when you see a piece of ice shake, move off of it quickly. Once you've made it across, look to the left for a shadow and some fountains. Save, then head to the right and break the link. Scene. -- Lucifer -- - Phase 1 - Jump when he slams his fist to avoid the shockwave. Pelt him with your Holy Cross. When he leans back, you're able to hit him for some much higher damage. When a beam of light shoots in, follow the button prompt to force him to lean back. When you're lifted in a tornado use X to jump out of it when prompted. Once his health gets low enough he will go to... ----------- - Phase 2 - He'll flash the screen and blind you if you try to use Holy Cross; it also will not damage him. When he does a ground slam jump to dodge the shockwaves. Otherwise it's in-and-out. At half health he'll begin doing a multiple-pound ground shockwave. When his health gets low enough he'll go to... ----------- - Phase 3 - This time he'll stay airborne. Holy Cross no longer works. To attack, move a bit away and face him for an R1 prompt to grapple and pull yourself to him. Now he'll send out waves of three fireballs, or a crescent wave of fire. He'll also occasionally do a ground pound like in phase 2 and, rarely in my experience, a shot of five fireballs. When you get him down to nearly no health left, he'll move into... ----------- - Phase 4 - Now he has raised the platforms. To get to him, you need to grapple the bottom of the platforms and work your way higher to him. Follow the button prompts. ----------- ------------- Congradulations!
