Just started this masterpiece and I already love it. Do you have any tips to become better at the game ?

The basics of how to enemy-step are important i.e. learning how to do aircombos. You are very safe in the air, so knowing how to for instance do a SwordMaster aerial combo helps. Think of something like Rebellion + Cerberus and then do

Code:
Reb + O
R2
Cerb + Triangle
R2
Repeat


This basically keeps you in the air for a long ass time. Another tip is to hold down the Devil Trigger button, this charges any spare orbs you have (turns them red), let it go and you transform but also sacrifice that meter for a huge explosion which can rake up good damage. Other than that, stay on the offensive and don't ever let them attack you. If you need specific advice, let me know :)

Thanks, I'll try it Smile
Cerberus fight was really good and I like his weapon too. I've seen a lot of people using a mod to change style mid-combo. I don't want to use it now but does it work well with the game ? I think the style's choice is a fundamental part of this title.

Personally, it absolutely butchers what the game tries to do and that's something I feel they didn't take into account in future titles either. Lots of weapons have overlapping moves or moves that replace certain styles allowing you to mix and match. The beauty of the system is learning how to play it with each kit combination and finding new uses of certain moves. Some moves, like Gunstinger, aren't that useful until you have a specific kit without a good Stinger move, and suddenly it is great.

So yeah, the mod is only good for combo-videos imo.

I've fought Agni and Rudra and I've almost won but the second phase is another thing (especially without healing items). I don't understand why after I heal myself and die the game revives me without that item. I'm already penalized for using it with a lower score so I think it's just old school design. However the game is amazing so it doesn't bother me too much.

There's a way to avoid the second phase Wink

And yeah the healing items really are oldsk00l, just avoid using them if you can. Are you playing Special Edition or regular (Dante's Awakening)?

If I hit both of them during phase 1 I can avoid the difficult part because the last one doesn't heal himself in phase 2. I think it's the best way to deal with them. I'm playing the Special Edition (Steam version) so the normal difficulty is lower than the original one. It's not hard but I have to learn better my moveset.

yeah definitely enemy step/JC since it's universal.

I've beaten Vergil 1 on my first try, but it was easier than previous bosses, at least on this difficulty.

How you liking the game so far? Pretty rare to get a fresh opinion on DMC3 since it's so infamous!

I played DMC1 not too long ago and I really love that game. DMC3 is giving me the same feeling but it's also full of new things. Different styles are very interesting to learn and play, enemies are well designed and weapons too. Camera may be a bit confusing in some situations but it's the only flaw that I can find at the moment.

The style system really is amazing. I still find it a big shame they just threw them all into a blender for 4 and 5.

Just defeated The Lady. The camera was strange in that arena but I managed to beat her on my first try. A bit too much backtracking in these last missions but enemy encounters keep things interesting.

Yeah the backtracking can be a tad annoying for the first few runs, especially considering some levels turn into mazes. But the end-game is well worth it, some fantastic areas and fights imo. The Lady fight is one of the most interesting ones I feel. She's clearly outmatched, but still manages to become an engaging fight.

How did you like the second Vergil fight?

The second Vergil fight was fantastic. He has different moves and uses a lot his devil trigger too, the final phase was really intense. Thankfully after that I can use Beowulf, an amazing weapon.

Yeah that weapon really rocks, one of the best in the game, especially if you want to go for quick kills. Fun fact is that the Vergil fight changes per difficulty in fun and unique ways.

Ah DMC3 Vergil. Many the hour was spent fighting each version of him with different setups. Those were the days.

Mission 19 done. Then I tried the final boss a few times, now I understand why he's revered by the community.
By the way, should I activate turbo mode in the next run ? Do you recommend to grind some red orbs before attempting hard difficulty ? My health bar is very short and I have only three DT orbs because I bought almost all weapons upgrades.
