    This guide is very long. If you need to find something quickly use the "find"
    function on your computer (Ctrl+F on Windows and most other PC's and Apple+F on
    Macs) and type in the code that has what you are looking for and scroll
    through. This is my first time writing for games like this so, hopefully it
    doesn't seem like a giant wall of text. Thanks to chaosticsoul (PSN) for
    pointing out a huge mistake I made in giving both Violence and Fraud the same

    DI1B. Mechanics
    ===============
    This section is mainly to help understand some of the mechanics incorporated in
    this game
    
    Fighting
    --------
    When you first begin the game, you will be wielding a halberd. After your
    encounter with Death in Acre, your weapon of choice will become Death's scythe.
    There are two main attacks with the scythe: Light and Heavy Attacks. Light
    Attacks are quick, slashing attacks and don't take much time to execute. Heavy
    Attacks take a little longer to pull of than the Light Attacks, but you will
    inflict more damage. As you increase the Unholy Path, you will be able to
    purchase more powerful attacks to dispatch your enemies. Another attack that
    you will gain access to before entering Hell in the Holy Cross attack. After
    finding Beatrice's soul in the church at the beginning, you will be able to
    perform the Holy Cross attack. To perform the attack, press O to hurl a cross
    of light at an opponent. Pressing O again will send a wave of 3 crosses towards
    opponents. This is NOT a regular Magic attack so pressing L1 is not required to
    perform the attack. As you increase the Holy Path, you will be able to purchase
    an upgrade for this attack the will send a third wave when you press O a third
    time. Using Holy Cross will not deplete your mana
    
    Blocking and Counters
    ---------------------
    The creatures of Hell won't let you beat up on them without fighting back. To
    block their attacks, hold L2. Some attacks are too powerful to be blocked, so
    your only option is to dodge the attacks. You can dodge attacks by jumping or
    by moving the right analog stick in the direction you want to move. To counter
    attacks, you will first need to purchase the Repayment ability, which can be
    purchased early on in the game. If you can time a block against an enemy's
    attack, Dante will glow momentarily, which is when you want to attack
    
    Magic
    -----
    As you progress through Hell, you will be granted magical spells. There are
    Holy and Unholy Spells. When you gain access to a new spell, you will be able
    add it to your repertoire. You can customize your spells and choose which of
    the face buttons you wish to assign it to. You can cast the spell at any time
    by pressing L1 and whichever face button you assigned that spell to. When you
    run out of mana, you will be unable to cast anymore spells. To refill mana, you
    will have to find a Mana Fountain, which have a purple liquid flowing from
    them. As you increase the Holy and Unholy paths, you will be able to upgrade
    the spells. 
    
    Judgment
    --------
    While fighting bigger enemies, near the end of the fight, an R2 icon may appear
    above the enemy. When that appears, you can choose to either absolve the
    creature or punish it. To absolve the creature, press the O button and to
    punish, press the Square button. You will have to follow the button prompts
    that appear on screen to complete the judgment. You can also judge smaller
    enemies by grabbing them with the R2 button and choosing whether you want to
    absolve them or punish them. You can also punish or absolve the Damned, mortals
    who played important parts in history. The Damned have a glow around their body
    when you come across them. If you choose to absolve the Damned, you will have
    to go through a Forgiveness mini-game. You will have about 40 seconds to
    capture sins, which appear from above, below, right, and left. When the sin
    crosses over the face buttons, press the corresponding face button to capture
    the sin. If the sin reaches the center, you press the wrong button, or you
    press the button early, you will lose a captured sin. After time has expired,
    you will receive bonus souls equal to the captured sins times 30. If you have
    collected all three Beatrice Stones, you will be able to auto-absolve the
    Damned in the Forgiveness mini-game. This mini-game is similar to one that
    appeared in Jak III for the PS2. Absolving creatures will add to the Holy Path,
    while punishing them will add to the Unholy Path
    
    ================
    DI2. Walkthrough
    ================
    When the game begins, you will be given a brief background on Dante and the
    Third Crusade. You will then see a cut scene of Dante alone in the woods,
    stitching the cross to his body. The game will then begin and you will take
    control of Dante in Acre. Just as a quick note, I am writing this using the
    Playstation 3 version. If you are playing the XBOX 360 version, everything will
    be the same except for the buttons that you will need to press in order to
    perform any actions. The buttons on each controller are the same as their
    counterpart (ex. The X button on the Playstation performs the same functions as
    the A button on the XBOX 360). 
    
    ==========
    DI2A. Acre
    ==========
    Before you take control of Dante, you will see a prisoner standing across from
    Dante. Once you take control of him, many armed guards will begin appearing to
    fight you. There will be plenty of enemies for you to fight and this is a good
    chance to get 50-hit combo. Once you kill the prisoner that was shown across
    the docks before the fight started, you will receive the "Slaughter at Acre"
    Trophy. After all enemies have been killed, a boat will crash into the docks.
    Jump onto the boat and then onto the ledge on the left and follow it around.
    You will find yourself alone in a courtyard. You will then watch a prisoner
    come up behind Dante and stab him. Death will then appear and say that your
    soul has been punished to Hell for your sins. Dante will then protest that the
    bishop said that the Lord has absolved the Crusaders of their sins and Dante
    challenges Death
    
    ***Battle vs. Death***
    
    You and Death will teleport to another dimension and then the fight begins. At
    the beginning of the fight, Death will only have two attacks. His first attack
    is a close attack. Death will slash at you a couple times with the scythe.
    Blocking or dodging can easily avoid this attack. His second attack is a ranged
    attack. He will swing his scythe in a circle a few times, sending shockwaves
    outward. To avoid this attack, you will have to jump or block. You won't be
    able to just run from Death; he is able disappear in a cloud of smoke and then
    reappear nearby. 
    
    Once you get Death's health down around 50%, he will begin using a third
    attack. This attack will also be a close attack. Death will turn his scythe
    into a spear and stab at you. Any method will work in avoiding this attack.
    After Death's health gets down to about 25%, you will take the scythe from
    Death. Now that you have his scythe, Death will no longer attack and will just
    try to run and hide. When an R2 icon appears above Death, follow the on-screen
    button prompts and destroy Death. Afterwards, you will arrive in Florence. 
    
    ==============
    DI2B. Florence
    ==============
    After defeating Death, Dante will return to his family home in Florence, Italy.
    When he arrives home, he finds that the house has pretty much been turned
    upside down. He then sees his father with his cross stabbed through his eye. He
    then rushes out back to see Beatrice, lying on the path, in a graveyard. He
    runs to his side and the runs his finger along her lips. Her spirit then
    escapes from her body and is then surrounded by dark smoke and then disappears.
    
    
    You will then be "locked" in the graveyard and Undead Minions will appear.
    Undead Minions are relatively weak and it shouldn't take many hits to kill
    them. At some point during the fight, you will gain a few abilities: Diabolic
    Ascension and Death's Grasp. For Diabolic Ascension, Hold Triangle and Dante
    will slam the scythe into the ground launching any nearby enemies into the air,
    leaving them defenseless. Death's Grasp the ability needed to increase your
    Holy and Unholy paths. To use Death's Grasp, press R2 to grab an enemy. Once
    you have an enemy, you will be able to either punish or absolve the Minions.
    Absolving the Minions will earn you about 10 Experience points for the Holy
    Path. However, Death's Grasp will only work against small enemies. You will
    also be prompted to spend souls on Upgrades. This will appear once you have
    collected 1,000 souls. At this time, you will only be able to purchase Impaler
    or Vile Wind (Both are Unholy). Once all the Undead Minions have been killed,
    the flames at the end of the graveyard will go out, allowing you to proceed. 
    
    After leaving the Graveyard, follow the path to the church. Before you enter,
    go to the Health Fountain to the left of the of the door. Press R1 to interact
    and then hit the O button a few times until the fountain breaks. Breaking
    Health Fountains will refill any lost health. To the right of the door is a
    Statue of Beatrice. Whenever you come across one of these, press R1 to interact
    and you will be able to save your game. Now, go to the door and press R1. You
    will enter the church and see Beatrice's spirit on the altar. When you walk up
    to the altar, Beatrice's spirit will be taken by black smoke again and the wall
    behind the altar will break down.
    
    Once the wall breaks, Undead Minions will spawn, and this time, they won't be
    alone. This time they have teamed up with Pests, which are flying creatures
    that will shoot fireballs. However, you also have a new trick up your sleeve:
    the Holy Cross attack. Holy Cross is very useful against flying opponents. You
    will want to try and kill all enemies that appear as quickly as possible
    because the floor will begin to break away. Once all enemies have been killed,
    a wooden cross will fall across a gap. Cross the cross and you will come to a
    bone ladder. Take it and descend below the church. 
    
    Once you land on the ground, you will have to kill all the Undead Minions that
    appear. There will be a giant barrel rolling slowly down behind you. Once you
    have killed all the minions, follow the path until a few burning beams fall
    down, blocking your progression. From the fire will spawn about 5 Fire Minions.
    Fire Minions can't be killed with the scythe directly. To kill them, you must
    first hit them with a Holy Cross attack and then slash at them with the scythe
    to kill them. Once you have killed about 5 of them, the wood will disappear.
    Now you will have to fight a lot of Undead Minions. There is a chance you may
    be able to get a 200 hit combo on all of the Minions. Once all have them have
    been destroyed, you will come to another Statue of Beatrice. Drop down the bone
    ladder and open any fountains you want. Then talk to Virgil. He will tell you
    that Beatrice has asked for him to guide you on your quest. He will give you
    the Magical Spell Righteous Path (Holy Spell).
    
    After talking with Virgil and selecting a button for the spell (if you want),
    some Undead Minions will begin to spawn, along with some Pests. After killing
    off all the Minions and Pests, one of the walls will break, revealing a much
    bigger creature. You will fight a Beast Tamer and an Asterian Beast. This is
    pretty much the same as fighting a Rancor in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
    The Beast has two main attacks and both are close attacks. One is a stomp,
    which it will usually only do when you are close to its feet, and a ground
    slam, which has some range, but not much. Eventually, an R2 icon will appear
    near the beast and you will need to hit Square, Triangle and then the O button.
    After killing the Beast Tamer, you will ride the Asterian Beast. More Undead
    Minions will appear and you will have to use the Beast to kill them. To stomp,
    press Triangle and to slam the ground, press Square. Now that you have control
    of the beast, you find out that is has a third attack, as well. Pressing the O
    button will allow the Beast to breathe fire. Once all the Minions are killed,
    go to the door that was behind Virgil and use the Beast to open it. 
    
    You will jump and when you land, there will be a Beatrice Statue in front of
    you. You will then have climb along the Wall of Damned. As you follow the wall,
    you will see a fountain in front of a waterfall of souls. Break open the
    fountain for a few souls. When you get near the end of the wall, you will have
    to jump across the gap by moving the left analog stick to the left and pressing
    X. Once you get off the wall. You will see Virgil again. Talk to him and he
    will tell you a bit about where you are and you will receive the commentary
    "Into the Blind World". Talk to him again and he will give you the Death Blade
    Relic (Unholy). You need to have be Unholy Level 1 to equip it. After Virgil
    disappears, double jump to the left of where Virgil was to find a fountain.
    Opening the fountain will reward you with a Piece of Silver [SP01]. Follow the
    path around to find yourself on the Shores of Acheron
    
    =======================
    DI2C. Shores of Acheron
    =======================
    After talking to Virgil and receiving the Death Blade relic, you will watch
    Charon trying to lure people aboard to take them to the gates of the
    underworld. After you regain control of Dante, make your way towards the lever.
    Pull the lever once and some Minions and Pests will appear. Activating the
    lever will also extend a bridge towards the other side; however, it does begin
    to move backwards on its own, so you don't have much time to get to the other
    side. Take out the Minions before crossing. The Pests will keep spawning, two
    at a time, so you don't worry too much about them. After you cross to the other
    side, the Pests will stop spawning. Climb down the bone ladder until you reach
    the floor below. You will have to kill all Hell Minions that spawn, as well as
    the Guardian Demon. The Guardian Demon it stronger in battle than the Minions
    and is unable to be grabbed due to its size. The Guardian Demon does have an
    attack that cannot be blocked. Whenever its sword begins to glow orange, either
    dodge or jump because the attack will still hit you, even if you try to block. 
    
    After you absolve or punish the demon (You can also kill it), a crank will
    appear in the center. Use it to raise the platform until you see a door in the
    center. Before you go through the door, raise the platform as high as it will
    go. On your left in an alcove is a fountain. Break it open to find another
    Piece of Silver [SP02]. Go back through the door and talk with Virgil. When you
    talk with him, you will receive the commentary "Shores of Acheron". He will
    tell you more about Charon and the Shores of Acheron. Proceed along the path
    and fight off the Hell Minions, Pests, and Guardian Demon that appear. After
    killing off all the creatures, continue towards the door. Before you go through
    the door, you will see a glowing figure in front of the door. This figure is
    one of the Damned, mortals who played an important part in history. You will
    have to choice to absolve them of their sins or punish them. When you interact
    with the soul, you find out it is Ponitus Pilate. If you choose to absolve him,
    you will play a mini-game that will have you collecting sins. For each sin you
    collect, you will gain 30 souls at the end of the mini-game. Then proceed
    through the demon door. You will have to press the O button quickly to open in.
    
    When you first enter the room behind the door, you will see Beatrice's soul
    once again and this time the black smoke will take the shape of a human. After
    watching the scene, Beatrice's soul will disappear, and a fight will ensue. You
    will have to fight your way through many Hell Minions. As the fight progresses,
    a few Guardian Demons will also enter the fray. After all enemies have been
    vanquished, the door will open, revealing a Statue of Beatrice. Now you will
    begin to make your way towards Charon. Before climbing across the rope, go
    behind the statue holding the rope to find a fountain with a Piece of Silver
    inside [SP03].
    
    When you get about halfway along the rope, Charon will tell you to stand down.
    Dante will beg Charon to take him to Beatrice. While Dante is pleading with
    Charon, you will see a Guardian Demon stand next to the statue and cut the
    rope. You will now have to climb along another Wall of the Damned. The first
    path going up will lead you on, but don't go that way yet. Instead, keep
    heading farther along Charon until you see something sitting on a ledge. This
    is a Demon Dog and destroying these will grant you relics. Follow the button
    commands to destroy it and you will be rewarded with the relic Charon's Oar.
    Now go back to the first opening along the wall.
    
    When you climb into the first opening, you will enter a room with a few
    breakable objects, a crate, a crank, and few fountains. When you first enter
    the room, up above the lever you will see a Damned soul. Grab the crate on the
    left side of the room and pull it to the right side. Push it up the ramp and
    into the alcove with bars. Go to the crank and move it backwards until you can
    move the crate over the platform to the left to the end of the left wall. Jump
    up the ledge and open the fountain to find a Piece of Silver [SP04]. Jump back
    down and put the crate back on the right side. Move the crate right in front of
    the ledge above where the Damned soul is. Use the crank and move the platform
    back to its original position. Jump up and you can either absolve or punish
    Orpheus. After choosing, climb up the wall. You will find yourself on the deck
    of Charon.
    
    You will then need to fight off Minions, Pests, and Guardian Demons. There are
    Health and Mana fountains around the edge of the deck. After killing off all
    the creatures, you will see Charon turn his head to the right and an Asterian
    Beast and Beast Tamer will climb up and more Minions will appear. Once you kill
    the Beast Tamer, take control of the Asterian Beast and kill any remaining
    Minions. You will then see an interaction point on Charon's neck. Once you
    press R1, you will have to press the O button rapidly to tear of Charon's head.
    Once you do that the boat will crash and you will have to use the Asterian
    Beast to climb up to the top of some pillars. Climbing with the Beast is the
    same as climbing with Dante. As you climb, the walls begin to break apart. You
    will have to switch sides twice. Once you get near the top, the wall underneath
    the Beast will begin to break. You will have to press Square, Triangle, and
    then O to have Dante jump off the beast and survive. However, you are not safe
    just yet. You will need to keep running as the ground beneath Dante will begin
    to crumble. You will get to a point where Dante will stop and the pillar you
    are standing on will begin to fall. As you are falling, you will be prompted to
    press R1 to use the scythe as a rope and swing through another pillar. 
    
    
    ===========
    DI2D. Limbo
    ===========
    Once you land, you are safe. There is a Beatrice statue to your left and Virgil
    is down the path to the right. Talk to Virgil and he will tell you about the
    judge of the underworld, King Minos. This is the "Limbo" commentary. Proceed to
    the end of the path and you will be able to King Minos in the distance. There
    will be a break in the top of the wall and you will have to climb down a Wall
    of Damned. Once you land, an Exploding Minion will appear. Grab it and throw it
    towards the glowing door to proceed. When you walk through the door, follow the
    path and you will see Charon's head. Before you reach Charon's head, the will
    be an opening in the wall. Go through it and you will have to fight a Guardian
    Demon. After killing the Demon, open the fountain to find a Piece of Silver
    [SP05]. Walk up to it and press R1 to push Charon's head over the ledge and
    receive the Trophy "Burning Eyes". Continue on past where the head was and you
    will come across a Demon Dog and a fountain. Destroying the Dog will give you
    the Eyes of St. Lucia Relic. Destroying the fountain next to it will reward you
    with a Beatrice Stone [BS1] and the Trophy "Precious". Go back to where the
    head was and go to the right and open the door.
    
    When you first enter this room, you will see an Unbaptized Baby. You will then
    have to fight off maybe 10-15 of them. If you grab them with your scythe to
    punish or absolve them, all the others will back away until you have finished.
    After you have killed them all, the wall of flames will die down, allowing you
    to progress farther. You will see Virgil standing next to a Demon Door. When
    you first talk to him, he will tell you about the Unbaptized Babies, which will
    add the "Unblessed Infants" commentary to your journal. Talking to him again
    will reward you with the Lord's Prayer Relic. Open the door and you will find a
    Mana fountain and a Soul fountain. There is also a spike wheel that will roll
    up and down the ramp. Open the next Demon Door and you will see on the Damned
    at the end of the path. You can choose whether to punish or absolve Electra. Go
    back the way you came and continue on. 
    
    As you make your way up, you will encounter a few Exploding Minions so kill
    them any way you like. When you reach the top there will be soul fountain next
    to a Demon Door. Follow the path all the way around until you reach the end.
    You will enter a fight against some Exploding Minions, some Hell Minions,
    Unbaptized Babies, and a Guardian Demon. Once all have been killed off, the
    wall of the flames behind all of them will die. Open the Demon Door and proceed
    through to the next room. Talk with Virgil and he will tell you of the souls
    that reside here, unlocking the "Hall of Kings" commentary. Proceed up the ramp
    and Dante will have a flashback involving Saladin. Go up the ramp past the
    giant statue and go to the left. Double jump off the ledge, to the left and
    pull the lever in the alcove. Pull it and the giant statue in the center of the
    ramp will disappear. You will see a Demon Dog in the hole; absolve it to get
    the relic Saladin's Mercy. I would recommend saving and then activate the lever
    and you will be able to swing across to face King Minos
    
    ***Battle vs. King Minos***
    
    You will watch a short scene of Minos judging one of the souls. He then will
    try to judge Dante and Dante ticks him off and the fight begins. Minos has a
    few attacks at his disposal. First, he will use his tentacles to try and stab
    you from the ground. Just keep running around in circles until they start
    spearing faster. Eventually, he will lean back and will reveal grapple points
    beneath some tentacles on either side of the arena. Grapple onto them while he
    roars, pretty much. He will then lower his head, allowing you to attack. He
    will try and "smell" you and then he will attack with his tongue. If he hits
    you, you will be separated from the scythe and a tentacle will appear ready to
    stab you. When this happens, follow the on-screen prompts to avoid the attack
    and grab our scythe. You will want to do enough damage to him so that he leans
    back, covering his eyes, allowing you to attack his stomach. 
    
    If you were unable to attack his stomach, you will have to repeat the previous
    process until you are able to attack his stomach. If you were able to attack
    his stomach, he will summon some Hell Minions to attack you. He will then begin
    to attack with his tentacles again, just like before. Once they get faster will
    begin to slam the ground with his fist and then he will sweep across the arena
    with his arm. When he slams his fist or sweeps his arm along the arena, stand
    right underneath either of the tentacles that hide the grapple points. He never
    slams near the tentacles and the arm seeps will end just before the tentacles.
    He will then lean back, revealing the grappling points again. However, after he
    roars, his hand will still be on the arena ground with an R2 icon above it. You
    will stab his hand with your scythe and then you will have to hit Triangle and
    then Square when they appear. If you do, you will be able to attack his stomach
    again. 
    
    After attacking his stomach, he will summon some Unbaptized Babies and a
    Guardian Demon. After killing all of them, he will begin slamming his fist on
    the ground and sweeping his arm along the arena. He will then lean back, once
    again, revealing the grapple points. After he roars, begin attacking his face
    again. He will attack with his tongue twice. If you are able to hit him enough,
    his tongue will fall out. Press R2 to grab his tongue and move the left analog
    stick down, when prompted, to pull Minos towards the spiked wheel. After
    stabbing his tongue on the wheel, press O and then you will have to rapidly
    press the O button to finally kill him. After he dies, you will receive the
    Trophy "Sentence the Judge" and the Tail of Minos relic. 
    
    After killing Minos, scythe swing across the gorge and follow the path to a
    Beatrice statue. You will now begin you descent into Lust. After reaching the
    Beatrice Statue, you will need to descend down the rope. You will have to
    rappel down the canyon, jumping from rope to rope. While going down the first
    rope, you will be told how to rappel. When you get onto the second rope, climb
    to the top to find a Piece of Silver [SP06]. Then climb back down and stop
    about halfway down. On your right, you should see two bone ladders. Swing over
    to them and grab onto one. As you are jumping towards the bone ladders, an R1
    icon will appear at the top of the screen. When this pops up, hit R1 and Dante
    will use the scythe to grab onto the ladder. Climb up them and destroy the
    Demon Dog for the relic Francesco's Book Drop down the ladder on the right and
    continue rappelling from rope to rope. Slide down the bone ladder and drop to
    the rope. Before you are able to jump to the next rope, you will need to
    destroy an object that is in your way. You will have to run at it and attack
    the object to destroy it. If you use a Triangle attack, it will only take one
    shot. After the object is destroyed, you will have to jump and use scythe swing
    to get to the next rope. Some Pests will spawn. Destroy them before moving on.
    Drop down the bone ladder to enter Lust
    
    ==========
    DI2E. Lust
    ==========
    As soon as you drop from the bone ladder, you will see one of the Damned.
    Before you reach the Damned, you will watch a cut scene that shows Dante
    betraying Beatrice. The Damned you can choose to absolve is Francesca da
    Polenta. It is recommended to absolve her as part of a Trophy. Make your way to
    the bridge. When you approach the bridge, you will see a tower appear and
    Cleopatra will climb up it and ask if you are looking for someone. The tower
    will then become surrounded by a vortex and lightning balls will from at the
    end of the bridge and make their way across, getting bigger the farther they
    go. 
    
    Begin to make your way down the bridge, hiding behind the statues when the
    lightning balls stop in front of them. Stay along the left side as you make
    your way down the bridge. When you get to the third statue on the left (the
    biggest one), drop down and scale the wall to find a Demon Dog. Absolving it
    will award you the relic Filippo's Rage. Climb back up and make your way to the
    end of the bridge. Once you pass the big statues, you won't have to worry about
    the lightning balls. Drop down behind the fourth statue on the left and scale
    to wall to find a Piece of Silver [SP07]. At the end of the bridge on the left
    side you will find Virgil. Talking with Virgil will add the "Winds of Lust"
    commentary to your journal. As you make your way back to the third statues,
    between the third and fourth statues on the right will be a break in the wall.
    Scale the wall and destroy the fountain to find a Beatrice Stone [BS2]. Go back
    up to the second statue on the left. 
    
    In front of this statue will be a lever. Activating this lever will switch the
    direction the lightning ball will be thrown for the plate in front of you. When
    the lightning ball is about halfway between the second and third statues, pull
    the lever to switch the direction. If you timed it correctly, the ball will be
    shot towards the plate in front of the third statues and the towards the vortex
    surrounding the tower. A hole will appear in the vortex and you will have
    limited window to get through it before it closes. 
    
    Once you enter the tower, you will meet a new enemy: Temptress of Lust. These
    enemies are very quick. They will fight both close and from a distance. When
    they attack close up, they will quickly strike about three times. Their ranged
    attack is really creepy. They will grow a tentacle from their abdomen and
    attack you. After killing off the three Temptresses, go to the crank in the
    far-left corner of the room. Turn it until it stops. Go to the mouth of the
    snake and attack it's fangs before the mouth closes. Once the fangs are
    destroyed, turn the crank again and this time the mouth will open all the way
    and will remain open. Jump on the tongue and up to the next level. The game
    will cut away and you will see Beatrice sitting on a bed. Before you are able
    to reach her, the platform she is on will go up.
    
    Walk to your right and talk with Virgil. Talking with him twice will get you
    the Tristan's Desire relic. You will also add the commentary for "Semiramis" to
    your journal. Jump from each side to reach a Soul fountain on the right and a
    Mana fountain on the left. Go down the path to the left to find a Beatrice
    statue and a lever. Go down the path to the right for a Health Fountain.
    Pulling the lever on the left will cause the platform to raise until it hits
    the one above it. Go to the far end of the platform in the center and pull out
    the statue. Go down and activate the lever. The platform will raise, but the
    statue will allow you to double jump onto it. Jump to the alcove on the left
    and break the fountain for a Piece of Silver [SP08]. Go the alcove on the
    right, destroy the fountain for some souls, and pull the lever. The roof above
    the platform will open and once you jump on, it will rise up. 
    
    The platform will now act as an elevator. Cleopatra will be climbing up the
    outside of the tower. While you are going up, you will have to fight two
    Temptresses and near the end of the fight, a Guardian Demon will appear.
    Cleopatra will break through the tower and flip the platform. You will be
    prompted to grapple using L1 while she continues climbing. The platform will
    continue to go up. You will then need to fight some Minions and more
    Temptresses. 
    
    Once the elevator stops, you will see some Unbaptized Babies being born from
    Cleopatra's breast. After she places them in the arena, the game will zoom in
    on her hand. After you kill the first wave of Unbaptized Babies, a platform
    will rise up in front of the Health fountain with 3 Hell Minions. Keep killing
    enemies until a platform appear in front of the Mana fountain. Once the
    platform appears in front of the Mana fountain, attack Cleopatra's hand until
    she pulls it away. Go and pull the lever above the Mana fountain to turn the
    stone snakes towards Cleopatra. Kill any enemies and attack her hand again
    until she pulls it away. Now pull the lever above the Health fountain. The
    snake statues will breathe fire, roasting Cleopatra's breasts. After that,
    Cleopatra will climb higher. You will pretty much regain all health and the
    platform will rise as well.
    
    You will fight some Temptresses and Pests on your way up. Once the platform
    stops, go over to the right and climb down the bone ladder. You find Paolo
    Malatesta, one of the Damned. If you absolved Francesca at the beginning of
    Lust, before the bridge, absolve Paolo and you will receive the Trophy
    "Forbidden Love". Climb back up and go to the left. You will have to navigate
    the Wall of Damned, while avoiding the electricity. Make your way to the right
    and climb up to the Beatrice Statue. The Damned to the right of the statue in
    Semiramis, the Queen Virgil talked of earlier. After punishing or absolving
    Semiramis, drop down from the ledge across from her to find a Demon Dog, which
    will award you with the relic Arrow of Paris. Double jump back towards the wall
    and climb up to the ledge and double jump to the left of the statue to find a
    fountain with a Piece of Silver [SP09]. At the top of the second wall will be
    the boss fight 
    
    ***Fight vs. Marc Antony***
    
    When you first get to the top of the tower, you will see Beatrice on the bed
    you saw earlier. A cut scene will ensue and Dante will look into Beatrice's
    eyes to see Dante breaking his promise. Beatrice will the disappear with
    Lucifer and Cleopatra will appear. Cleopatra will talk about Lucifer's plan and
    Marc Antony will come out of her mouth to fight you. 
    
    Marc Antony has plenty of attacks, but most of them are close range attacks. He
    will try and stomp on you, he will slash at a few times, but each time is more
    powerful. He will also slam his shield in front of you. For his one ranged
    attack, he will slam has shield into the ground and the bottom will glow. If
    you move, his shield will follow you until purple spikes will pop out of the
    ground, but they will only go in a straight line from his shield. Then he will
    lunge with his sword. Cleopatra will also interfere. At times she will slam her
    fist somewhere in the arena and if you are close to it when she does slam her
    fist, you may become stunned. She will also use a spell that will summon a dark
    tornado that will roam towards you. She will also heal Marc Antony. When she
    does this, a green aura will appear around Marc Antony. Attack her hand that is
    on the arena and she will stop and fall down the tower. She will eventually
    climb back up, though. 
    
    Antony is plenty powerful by himself. He will use almost any attack at any time
    so be prepared. After you get him down around 25% health, he will constantly
    slam his shield into the ground and spike will pop out of the ground. Then he
    will either use a charged sword attack or jump and lunge at you and stab the
    ground. When he uses his shield, the damage your attacks do is greatly reduced.
    The easiest way to hit him is to wait and dodge until you can get a clear shot
    at him without him being able to use his shield to defend himself. Once you get
    him in a position like this, attack with Holy Cross. 
    
    Once he is defeated, you will receive the relic Antony's Standard. Cleopatra
    will then appear at his side and you will receive the Trophy "Lovers Torn
    Asunder". Cleopatra then says that it wasn't supposed to end like that and
    talks of some deal and then sets her sights on you. Antony will disappear and
    she will begin crawling towards you. You will drop the scythe and start to back
    away. She will then jump at you and you will have to knock her off by moving
    the left analog stick down and then up. She will then jump and tackle you. Move
    the left analog stick in a counterclockwise direction from right to left to
    roll over. You will then have to move the left analog stick up and you will
    stab her with the scythe and she will disappear. You will also gain the Lust
    Storm Magic attack. 
    
    The platform will now begin to fall back towards the ground. As you are
    falling, you will have to fight some Minions and Guardian Demons. The tower
    will also be collapsing onto the platform. When they are about to land, a
    purple circle will appear on the platform. The falling debris can harm both you
    and the enemies. After all the enemies have been killed, a giant boulder will
    fall on the right side of the platform. You will then need to fight 3 more
    Demons. Both of you can fall off the edge of the platform the was destroyed by
    the boulder. After the Demons have been killed, a boulder will destroy the left
    side of the platform. Soon, the only portion of the platform left will be the
    top part. 
    
    As you are falling, the camera will rotate and you will see the statues from
    the beginning of Lust. Some of them now have rappel points. Press R1 to rappel
    to the first one and then to the second one. You need to swing from the second
    to the next statue. Between the third rappel points and the fourth, there will
    be two statues that will still be generating electricity. Double jump when the
    electricity has gone down and swing from the last point to the bridge. When you
    land, Virgil will be right next to you. He will tell you about Helen, adding
    the commentary to your journal. 
    
    After talking with Virgil, proceed down the bridge to the bone ladder. Open the
    Health and Soul fountains if you want. As you descend, the mouths, will shoot
    fire. The fire won't last very long but there isn't much of a break between the
    mouths shooting fire. As you use the ropes, to rappel along the wall, the
    mouths that you pass in front of will shoot fire, burning the ropes. To move
    from rope to rope, run to the right first and then run left and jump because
    the ropes won't last long. As you climb down the bone ladder, the mouths that
    are lined up in a row will shoot fire one after another, but no two will short
    fire at the same time. When you reach the next rope, run right and then left.
    You will need to break the object quickly before the rope burns and reaches
    you, hurting you for constant damage. Slide down the bone ladder to the rope
    stretching across the chasm. First go to the right and there will be a ledge
    with a Demon Dog inside an alcove. The is also a fire mouth, but it will allow
    enough time between shooting flames to grab the relic, which is Rain of
    Gluttony. Make it to the other side to gain information of this new area.
    
    ==============
    DI2F. Gluttony
    ==============
    As you cross the rope, you will see Cerberus in the chasm below. Talk with
    Virgil and he will tell you about Gluttony (Commentary) and Cerberus. Drop down
    the bone ladder to fight Cerberus. 
    
    ***Fight vs. Cerberus***
    
    As soon as you land, Cerberus' heads will appear and snap at each other and the
    fight begins. Each of the heads will shoot vomit balls at you, not all at once,
    but two can puke at the same time. You will first have to take out the side
    heads. You can do this one of two ways. You can get close to one of the
    fountain-like objects, press R1 and the rapidly hit the O button as if it were
    a fountain. When you are doing this, the side head closest to you will lunge at
    you. The second way is to lure the side heads to lunge at you, dodge, and then
    attack until and R2 icon appear over the head. The first way is a lot easier.
    Pick a side to start with and try to open the fountain farther from the head.
    Once you open dodge out of the way when the head strikes and attack it form
    behind the head so the other heads can't vomit on you. When the body begins to
    pull the head back, open the fountain closer to the body and move out of the
    way when it strikes. When the R2 icon comes up, you will only have to hit
    Triangle when it appears, and Dante will slice off the head, healing you a
    little as well. Repeat for the other side head. 
    
    Now for the remaining center head. The center head will now strike you whenever
    you get close. It will also hurl vomit faster than before. Open one of the
    fountains farther away form the body and wait for it to strike. When it passes
    through the fire, move the far side of the arena. The head will writhe in pain
    for a few seconds and sweep along the arena, swinging violently. Go to the
    other side and do the same thing. This time after going crazy, the head will
    fall and R2 will appear in front of it. As soon as you hit R2, the head will
    attempt to eat you. You will then be prompted to move the left analog stick up,
    down, right, and left. The head will then explode and the fight is over. You
    will receive the relic Azrael's Apprentice and the Trophy "The Great Worm".
    
    Go across Cerberus's body and follow the path as it begins to rain. After
    jumping over a gap you will see a Fountain. You should also see some dirt
    rising right in front of it. Use a heavy attack to reveal a Gorger Worm. You
    can also just walk over it and it will try to eat you, which is one of its
    attacks. To escape, you will have to press the O button rapidly. Open the
    fountain for a Piece of Silver [SP10] and continue towards the interaction
    point. Open the Health and Mana fountain before descending the bone ladder.
    Before you drop you will watch a Gorger Worm kill a minion and another Minion
    running away. When you land, you will instantly attempt to be eaten by a Gorger
    Worm. After escaping, more worms will appear as well as some Minions. Once you
    kill off all the Worms and Minions, the fire wall will drop. The will be statue
    on the right, a soul fountain and one of the Damned on the left. The Damned
    soul is Ciacco.
    
    As soon as you pass through the open mouth beyond the Beatrice Statue, all
    mouths nearby will close and some Pests will spawn. Keep using Holy Cross until
    they are destroyed and the mouths will open up again. Jump to the platform in
    front of the first mouth ahead of you and judge the Damned, which is Clodia.
    Jump back the platform with the rope crossing the river and cross. Go through
    the mouth and you will find Virgil. You will receive the "Valley of Mud"
    Commentary and the Ciacco's Bile relic. After talking with Virgil, follow the
    path and you will see an arch with a glowing door. As you make your way towards
    it, a Gorger Worm, Minions, and Guardian Demons will ambush you. Kill all of
    these enemies and open the fountain before you go through the arch. 
    
    Once you pass through the arch, you will see Gluttons eating other souls. Dante
    will then have flashback to Dante's youth. After the flashback, Lucifer will
    appear and Dante will begin asking questions about other souls. You will then
    watch a flashback that will show how Dante's father and Beatrice were killed.
    After the cut scene is over, you will need to fight a Glutton. Due to their
    large size, your magic attacks won't have much effect on them. After you have
    judged it, the floor will be destroyed and you will have to navigate through
    the Mirror Maze. 
    
    This maze is fun to try and navigate. Activating the levers will change which
    portal you come out of when you enter one. Pass through the portal at the end
    of the path you are on and activate the lever after coming out of the portal.
    This will turn the portal you just walked through. Go back the way you came and
    walk to the far end of the platform and climb the wall. At the end of the first
    ledge you reach will be a soul fountain. Climbing higher to the second ledge,
    break the fountain for a Piece of Silver [SP11]. Climb back down and pull the
    lever. Go back through the portal and jump from the platform that appears to a
    ledge with a lever and a soul fountain. If you pass through the portal next to
    the fountain, you will fall out of the portal that is above where you started.
    Wait until the revolving platform comes in from the left and hovers underneath
    and pass through the portal. As the platform moves through the center of the
    area, double jump to the right towards the fountain. Breaking this fountain
    will reward you with a Beatrice Stone [BS3], which makes 3, if you have found
    all of them up to this point. Passing through the portal nearby will also drop
    you out of the one above where you start. Once you pass through the portal the
    platform takes you through you will be out. This is the only time you will
    visit during the game. 
    
    After passing through the portal, the platform will crumble after it falls.
    Follow the path to find a Soul fountain and Beatrice Statue. Begin descending
    the bone ladder. When the mouth underneath the ladder isn't breathing fire,
    drop to the vine and swing to the bone ladder to the left. Climb up the bone
    ladder into a little alcove with fountain the will reward you with a Piece of
    Silver [SP12] and a Demon Dog that holds the relic Octavian's Gold. Descend the
    bone ladder to drop to a rope that spans the chasm. Make it to the far left end
    and drop down onto another vine. When you get to the bottom, drop down off the
    vine. You will have to block the flames coming up from the ground to proceed.
    Grab the object you see and pull it back towards the vine. Once there are 4
    flame spouts, push the object back over the first spout and throw it over the
    other by holding the O button while moving the object. Quickly jump back up on
    the vine and swing to the left. Break the object in front of you and drop down
    the bone ladder and onto the rope. Make your way to the left end and jump off.
    You will have to use the scythe to grab onto the grappling point and swing over
    to the vine. Jump to the next vine and slide down the bone ladder into...
    
    ===========
    DI2G. Greed
    ===========
    Greed. Follow the path until you can see ahead into another room. Go up to the
    ledge near the doorway, but don't go through. Go to the edge of the ledge you
    are on and shimmy over to the right. When you can only see your feet, pull
    yourself up and you will find a Demon Dog. Destroying the Dog will grant you
    the Crown of Carthage relic. Go back and go towards the opening. In an alcove
    on the left are Health and Mana Fountains. As you make your way towards the
    opening, jump up on the right side into another alcove with a Soul fountain.
    Double jump across and the path to the left and there will be another fountain
    with a Piece of Silver [SP13] inside. Go back to the ledge where you found the
    Soul fountain. If you look ahead and to the left, you will see another fountain
    in an alcove. This one is a bit tricky to try and get to. Run off the ledge of
    the alcove with the Soul fountain and as you are falling, double jump towards
    the platform. You don't want to do it too early; otherwise you will hit some
    rocks hanging over the path. This fountain will reward you with a Beatrice
    Stone [BS4], but if you already have 3, you will receive Health, Mana, and some
    souls. Proceed down the path
    
    You will watch a cut scene and see the boss for this Circle. Dante will
    enlighten you that the boss for this Circle is none other than dear old dad,
    Alighiero, and then you will watch a flashback into Dante's past. Talk with
    Virgil to receive the "Greed" Commentary. Jump up the moving platforms and then
    onto the platforms that cross the molten gold. When you first activate the
    lever, a platform will move, but then it will move back. A rock wall will rise
    where you jumped over the molten gold. You will then see some pests and a giant
    vat coming towards you and on top of the vat are some Guardian Demons. The vat
    will then tip and begin pouring molten gold down below you. You need to kill
    off the Pests and Demons, and activate the lever again before the gold
    overflows. Some Fire Minions will spawn before the lever reappears after the
    Pests and Demons have been killed. 
    
    Jump onto the ledge to the Beatrice Statue and make your way over to the cogs.
    Make it to the top of the first row of cogs and jump left to the second row of
    cogs. Once there, jump back onto the single cog just above the top of the
    second row. As you jump towards the lone cog, you should start hearing a female
    voice. On a cog above the first row, you will see a Damned soul. The soul
    belongs to Tarpeia. This will be the first Damned Soul you find after finding
    all Beatrice Stones (if picked up at least 3), so this is your first chance to
    auto-absolve the Damned. To auto-absolve, press Triangle. If you choose to
    auto-absolve, you will not have to play the mini-game or receive bonus souls.
    After crossing the cogs, open the Demon Door. You will enter a room and meet a
    new enemy: a Hoarder-Waster. This enemy uses a giant club to attack you.
    Whenever they start spinning, none of your scythe or Holy Cross attack will
    work. The only way to stop them from spinning (other than wait for them to
    stop), it to use Righteous Path. After killing the first one, Minions and few
    more Hoarder-Wasters will appear.
    
    After killing all the enemies, the lever will reappear. Activating it will
    lower some platforms with spikes underneath. First, jump in the alcove and
    break the fountain for a Piece of Silver [SP14]. Pull the lever to lower the
    platforms, jump in the alcove and jump onto the platform on the right. As you
    are going up, you will see an alcove with a Demon Dog. Destroying the Dog will
    reward you with the Demon's Wing relic. The lever in here will open the door
    above. After the platforms have reached the top, pull the lever is here to open
    the door. Get out and pull the lever that lowers the platforms, then jump back
    into the alcove quickly. Once in there, wait for the platforms and then move
    the right analog stick up to quickly dash through the door. The door will only
    remain open for a few seconds. If the spikes touch you, you will die. Once you
    open the door, the platforms slow down. Once you dash through the door, it will
    close. Pull the lever to activate the elevator.
    
    When you first enter this room, you will see a Beast Tamer on the other side of
    the room pulling a lever and disappearing behind a Demon Door. If you drop down
    to the area below, you will see a gate rise and some enemies will appear. Kill
    the Pests and Hoarder-Waster that appear to lower the gate. There are two
    fountains down here. The one near molten gold will have a Piece of Silver
    [SP15] inside and the other one has a few souls. Climb up the wall that is now
    accessible where the gate was blocking. Climb back up and make your way to the
    Demon Door that the Beast Tamer disappeared behind. Once you open the door,
    pull the lever to stop the machine from spinning. Walk back out into the room
    and double jump to your right to judge Gessius Florus. The Demon Dog in the
    center of the contraption will give you the Wasted Gold Relic when you destroy
    it. Go back and open the second Demon Door
    
    When you enter the next room, there will be a Health and a Mana fountain, as
    well as a Beatrice Statue. When you round the corner, you will see the Beast
    Tamer and he will jump under an archway and bars will block it off. The saw
    blades on either side of the room will begin to move. You will have to turn the
    crank enough to open the bars and make your way into the room the Beast Tamer
    did. The catch is you have to do it before the walls come together and crush
    you. You will also have pairs of Guardian Demons trying to stop you. As soon as
    you start turning the crank, the saw blades will begin to move. The bonus to
    having the saw blades move up and down the room is that they will instantly
    kill the Demons if they are on the blade's path. You will see a fountain also
    closed behind some bars on the other side, but don't worry about it, you will
    have to go that way eventually anyways. As soon as you enter the next room, the
    walls will instantly snap together. The easiest way to do this is to wait until
    the Demons get close to you. Once they do, use the Sacred Quake attack, if you
    have already purchased it (Holy Level 2).
    
    Once you enter the room, you will enter a fight with an Asterian Beast and
    Beast Tamer, some Exploding Minions, and some Guardian Demons. The Demons and
    Minions will keep respawning until you take control of the Beast and kill and
    remaining enemies. Before you leave the room, be sure to destroy the soul
    fountains and Mana fountains. Walk over the walls that closed in the room you
    were in before this one and use the Beast to open them. The Beast will hold the
    door open and you have to open the Demon Door. The saw blades will reactivate,
    so be careful when crossing the room. Some Exploding Minions will also spawn.
    Once you open the door, the walls will close again. In front of the wall, you
    will see Virgil. Talk with him to receive the "Earth's Treasure" commentary.
    Climb up the wall and go to the right, into the two cells. In the farther cell
    is a Demon Dog that will reward you with the Coin of Plutus relic. In the
    closer cell is a fountain with a Piece of Silver [SP16].
    
    Once you reach the top of the wall, you will have to scythe swing across the
    canyon and grab onto a rope over a river of molten gold. You will see some
    fountains ahead of you when you land. When you try and step past the elevator,
    a new enemy will appear and a gate will block off any escape. This creature is
    a Throne Demon and a little tougher than the Guardian Demons. These creatures
    wield and ax as well as a shield. They are able to block your Holy Cross
    attacks with the shield. If you can hit them once they lower their shield, just
    keep spamming Holy Cross attack until R2 appears and pass judgment for 200
    Experience. After the gate lowers, the open the fountain that it blocked off
    for a Piece of Silver [SP17]. Activate the lever past the fountain to lower a
    wall and proceed on. Once you step onto the platform, small gates will appear
    and two Hoarder-Wasters will appear, as well as two Pests a little later. Kill
    off these enemies and the platform will have stopped and begin to tip. Jump
    onto the platform across from it and the same thing will happen, only instead
    of Hoarder-Wasters, you will have to fight off two Seductresses of Lust. These
    creatures do the exact same things as the Temptresses of Lust. 
    
    The platform will continue moving until you stop in front of a giant gold
    statue. Once the gates are lowered, jump down. There are Health and Mana
    fountains on either side of the area. Jump up to the lever and pull it. The
    column you are standing on will shoot a fireball and a crank will be revealed.
    Before you can turn the crank, you will have to fight off some Pests and about
    3 Throne Demons. Turning the crank will rotate the platform that shoots fire
    until it lines up with one of the platform on either side of the statue.
    Destroy both of them. Destroy the one on the right to reveal an alcove with two
    fountains. The one on the left will have a Piece of Silver [SP18] inside. Go up
    the left platform this time and there will be a Beatrice Statue and a Demon
    Door. 
    
    Follow the path and open the two fountains for some souls. Go to the platform
    and pull the lever and it will begin to descend. Once it reaches the bottom,
    follow the path and talk with Virgil. He will add the "Plutus" commentary to
    your Journal. You will come to a statue of Plutus and then you will have to
    fight off some Hoarder-Wasters, Exploding Minions, and Seductresses of Lust.
    Once they have all been killed, a ray of light will emanate from the statue and
    a platform will appear. Rotate the crank until you are able to create a path
    for you to jump to the platform he is holding in his left hand. As soon as a
    platform leaves the light, is will start decaying. You will want a platform
    that is blocked on one side to be right in front of the platform he is holding.
    Once you get up to the ledge behind him, there will be a Beatrice Statue, soul
    fountain and a Demon Door. Open the door to proceed. 
    
    When you enter this next room, break the soul fountain and grab onto the rope.
    When you make it to the other side, you will see Virgil and another soul
    fountain. You will receive "The Wheel of Fortune" commentary from taking with
    him. Scythe swing across to the other side and climb the wall. Once you make
    your way towards the wheel, you will have to fight off a few waves of
    Seductresses, Exploding Minions, a Glutton and a Throne Demon. After killing
    all of them, gates will be lowered revealing a Soul fountain and the way
    forward. Scythe swing across to the cogs and two Pests will swarm kill them and
    then make your way around the stomping logs to the Demon Door. When the logs
    are going up, dodge ahead because the wheel will be spinning counter-clockwise
    and you want to go clockwise. Open the door and cross the wall. When you reach
    the other side, you will see a Beatrice Statue on the right, and on the left
    will be a Health fountain, a Mana fountain and the Damned soul of Fulvia. Open
    the Demon Door at the end of the room. 
    
    When you get onto the elevator, activate the lever to lower it. As it is
    lowering, you will see a Beast Tamer on an Asterian Beast. Activate the lever
    on the left to raise the platform and fight the Beast and Tamer. Once the fight
    begins, the elevator will go back up and you will need to kill the Tamer. Once
    you have killed the Tamer, the elevator will return with another Tamer. When a
    Tamer is by itself and you are riding a Beast, it will try to knock you off and
    take back control of the Beast. Once you kill the second Tamer and regain
    control, some Throne Demons and another Tamer will appear. Kill them to
    proceed. 
    
    Take the Beast to the block it was pushing and hold R1 to push the block until
    it falls into place. Use the Beast to climb long the wall until you reach the
    statue of Plutus. Fight off the Minions, Demons, and Tamer that appear and a
    block will appear in the far-left corner. Pull it over to the button in the
    floor on the right side of the room to lower the statue. Once you have pulled
    the block back enough, go to the left side of it and hold the O button to
    forcefully push it across the room. If you try and pull it all the way to the
    button, it will have decayed enough that you won't be able to get past the
    statue. Once you have passed the statue, keep climbing the wall until you reach
    the Wheel of Fortune. Once you reach the Wheel, the wall will begin to burn and
    you will have to fight off a few waves of Throne Demons and Beast Tamers. Once
    you do, you will see your father above the Wheel. Use the Beast to push over
    the Wheel and fight dear old dad
    
    ***Battle vs. Alighiero***
    
    Alighiero basically looks like a bigger Glutton. He has a ranged attack and a
    close attack. When he uses his ranged attack, he will swing his cross upwards
    and a few smaller crosses will home in on you and hit you a couple times. Just
    block to defend them. When he does his close attack, he will slam his cross to
    the ground, sort of like how the Guardian Demons use their special attack. On
    occasion, he will also swing the cross at you. Once you get his health low
    enough, the outer ring of the Wheel will break away. He will also begin using a
    new attack. For this attack, he will stab his cross into the ground and a
    hologram of it will remain there. Every few seconds, the cross in the ground
    will send out a small shockwave that doesn't reach very far. After doing this
    about 5 times, the cross will disappear. He will put a few of these down at a
    time. 
    
    Once you get his health even lower, more of the arena will break away and he
    will begin use a magic attack. He will yell "Sins of the Father" and then a
    burst of energy will erupt from around him. If you are close enough, it will
    hit you for major damage. By this time, when he throws the crosses, they will
    be three at a time and stabbing the ground with a cross will send a shockwave
    through pretty much the whole remaining part of the arena. Once you kill him,
    you will receive the Eye of Alighiero relic and the Unholy spell, Sins of the
    Father. The molten gold will drain from around what is remaining of the Wheel
    and you can proceed towards the Beatrice Statue. There is a ledge next to the
    Health fountain with a Demon Dog in it. Destroy it to receive the Hoarder's
    Purse relic. Open the Demon Door to proceed. Pull the lever to activate the
    lift. You will be fighting Pests until you reach the other side; then you have
    to kill off a few Minions and a Hoarder-Waster. Pull the lever to lower the
    lift. 
    
    Once you reach the bottom follow the path around and begin your descent into
    Anger. Drop down the bone ladder and drop off of it. Quickly hit R1 to grab the
    grapple point with the scythe and swing over to another bone ladder. As you
    descend down this ladder, everywhere around you will be bombarded with meteors.
    Drop down to the rope after the meteor strikes and destroy the object blocking
    your path. Grapple and swing across to another ladder and climb down it. 
    
    ===========
    DI2H. Anger
    ===========
    Once you land, you will be in Anger. There is a soul fountain to your left and
    Virgil waits ahead on the path. Talk with him to receive the "Anger"
    commentary. Follow the path and stare at the early visions of Anger. Jump
    across and then use the rope to cross the river to the Beatrice Statue. Follow
    the path until you come to a clearing. You will have to clear a few waves of
    Minions, Pests, and a couple Gorger Worms to proceed. When you get to the end
    of the path, jump to the land in the middle of the river and swing across to
    the other side. You will begin to hear Lucifer talking about making Beatrice
    his wife. As you are swinging across, you will see a fountain on a higher
    ledge. Pull the crate back and jump up to open it and receive a Piece of Silver
    [SP19]. Pull the crate back farther and push it over the edge onto the pillar
    behind you. Jump on top of the crate and the pillar will sink.
    
    Walk down this new path until you see Virgil. Talk to him and he will give you
    the "Pigs in the Mire" commentary and the relic Medusa's Call. Dante will ask
    about the tower you saw earlier and Virgil will tell you that it if for
    ferrying the Damned. He will tell you to ask for the boatman. Walk over to the
    interaction point and climb on the wall. The wall will branch up and down.
    Going up will lead you to a soul fountain; going down will lead on. Once you
    reach the end of the wall, drop down and proceed. You will enter a fight with
    some Seductresses, Exploding Minions, and a new enemy: Fire Guardians. Fire
    Guardian will appear as black smoke that will move around the arena. Once they
    light up, hit them with a Holy Cross attack and then use the scythe. They are
    basically stronger Fire Minions. Once the fight is over, break the door on the
    right to reveal the Damned soul of Boudica. Jump to reach her. 
    
    Continue along the path that opened after killing all the enemies. Jump up to
    reach a Health fountain and the rope across to continue. Grab on and swing
    across. Go all the way across the rope to a ledge with a Mana fountain and
    fountain that will have a Beatrice Stone [BS5] if don't already have 3. When
    you first drop down onto the platform in the middle, the platform will sink,
    making it unable for you to jump up to the ledge. You will have to fight off a
    few Guardian Demons and a few Throne Demons to raise the platform so you can
    proceed. Jump up and you will see a fountain with a Piece of Silver [SP20]
    inside. Continue down the path and climb the wall when you come to it. When you
    get to the top, you will see a Beatrice Statue. Down the path to the left is a
    Health fountain and a Mana fountain. Continue down the path and you will come
    to a room with a crank. When you first enter, Dante will have flashback. Before
    you turn the crank, go into the right corner of the room to find the Damned
    soul of Hecuba. 
    
    Turn the crank all the way to lower the pillars around the fire. Once the
    pillars begin to drop, the flames on the platform will die out, but once the
    pillars make their way back to the top, the fire will reignite. Turn the crank
    until it won't turn anymore and jump up on to the platform. Go over to the
    giant wheel on the right and move it over to the left. Once it locks into
    place, the platform will rise and you will have to kill a few Fire Minions. As
    soon as they have all been killed, move the wheel back over to the right before
    the fire cauldron reaches the platform. The platform will rise again and you
    will have to kill off some Fire Minions, Exploding Minions, and a Fire
    Guardian. Destroy the object blocking the wheels path and move it before the
    cauldron reaches the platform. As you progress farther up, you will have to
    destroy more objects and enemies to move the wheel. Once you make it to the
    top, destroy both objects and move the wheel to the right. A platform will
    lower with a climbable wall. If at any time you are on the platform and the
    cauldron lines up with it, you will die if the flames touch you before you make
    the platform rise or reach the wall. Pull the lever at the top of the platform
    
    Once you pull the lever, a platform next to you will fall and the tower comes
    to life. The camera will pull away and you will see the statues on top of the
    tower straighten and begin to breathe fire. You will then see a platform way
    down below you moving towards the tower. Once you regain control of Dante, hop
    onto the platform next to you and continue to the right side. Jump up a
    platform to destroy the fountain for a Piece of Silver [SP21]. Jump up another
    platform and destroy the Demon Dog for the Guiding Flame relic. Go back down
    and talk with Virgil and he will tell you about the City of Dis and add "The
    City Draws Near" commentary to your Journal. Go to the glowing orb and slide
    down the bone ladders. When you land, you will be in front of the platform you
    saw move towards the tower, between a Beatrice Statue and the Damned soul of
    Filippo Argenti. 
    
    Jump onto the platform and it will begin to move. As you are riding along, you
    will have to kill off some Pests. When the camera pans toward one of the heads
    in the marsh, Pests will appear from it. When you reach the other side, more
    Pests will appear and a giant hand will come up from the water, and kill the
    Pests for you. Then you will have to follow the sequence Square, Triangle,
    Square, X and you will land safely for the boss fight.
    
    ***Fight vs. Phlegyas***
    
    When the fight begins, you will stare at a gate and then some Minions will
    swarm. At some point, Phlegyas will slam his fist somewhere in the arena, so be
    careful. After killing off the first set of Minions, a Hoarder-Waster will
    appear with more Minions, a few of them will be Exploding Minions. Once all the
    enemies have been killed, the gate will be lowered and you can proceed. After
    you pass through the gate, you will see Beatrice and Lucifer appear from behind
    a statue of a kneeling woman. After they disappear, open the Health and Soul
    fountains and continue to the left. Jump and press R1 to scythe swing across to
    the other side and open the Mana fountain. 
    
    Eventually, Phlegyas will stop in front of where you are and the fighting
    continues. This time you will have to fight off Unbaptized Babies, Seductresses
    of Lust, a Glutton, and a Guardian Demon. Once all have been killed Phlegyas
    will move on and the gate will drop. Pull the lever near the edge and a bridge
    will come together, allowing you to move on. Run across the bridge before it
    falls back to its original position and open the Health fountain. Make your way
    towards the tower and a Guardian Demon will appear. Another Guardian Demon will
    appear along with some Pests. Once they have all been killed, six more Guardian
    Demons will appear. After a few seconds, Phlegyas will breathe fire, so double
    jump to avoid it and the Demons will be killed. A few waves of Guardian Demons,
    Throne Demons, Seductresses and a Glutton later, the platform that the first
    Guardian Demon appeared on will lower and you only need to kill 2 Throne
    Demons. Once they have died, a gate will lower, revealing a lever. Pull it and
    the platform you are on will rise. 
    
    You will watch a cut scene with Beatrice and Lucifer. Lucifer will give
    Beatrice a pomegranate and three seeds will fall out. Beatrice will eat them
    and then be transformed. For those who know Greek mythology, this is the same
    way Hades kept Persephone in Hell for three months out of each year. She will
    kiss Lucifer and they disappear. Dante then jumps on Phlegyas and controls him.
    Walk down the bridge, and as you do, the camera will begin zooming out and
    Dante will retell more of his past as you see over the wall and into the City
    of Dis. Use Phlegyas to break down the door and go towards the running
    creatures and follow the path. Destroying anything will reward you with souls,
    so go ahead and bring the place to the ground. Once you get to a bridge, it
    will begin to crumble. Stomp on it a few times and it will fall out from under
    Phlegyas. Dante will then jump to safety.
    
    Climb down the ropes until you reach the third one. Swing over and destroy the
    breakable object and the platform above will collapse. Climb back to the top of
    the rope and jump up onto the ledge. Save at the Beatrice Statue and go to the
    left side and turn the crank to retract the spikes. When you try and go back to
    the rope, you will have to kill 3 Minions first. After you have killed them, go
    back and turn the crank and go back to the rope. Use the rope to swing across
    to the bone ladder and slide down to the rope below. Shimmy across the rope to
    the left. After the fire pad, position yourself above another rope and drop
    down. There will 3 Pests to the right of the rope and then 3 Pests to the left
    of the rope on your left. From the left rope, swing across to the bone ladder
    on the other side of the fire plates. Drop down the ladder and then to another
    one when there aren't any flames blocking your path. When you reach the bottom
    of the third ladder, a ray of light will shine and break through a few walls,
    but you can't reach there right now, so drop down off the ladder into Heresy
    
    ============
    DI2I. Heresy
    ============
    When you land in Heresy, you will see Virgil and Health and Mana fountains. You
    will also hear a Demon Dog, but one can't be seen. When you talk with Virgil,
    he will tell you about Heresy, adding the "Heresy" commentary, and talking
    twice will give you the Rage of Farinata relic. Open the fountains and then the
    Demon Door. Proceed through the door and a Throne Demon will appear. Kill it
    and activate the lever along the left wall. Pull it and the fires will
    disappear and another Throne Demon and some Fire Guardians will appear. Kill
    them and proceed on and to an opening on the left. Climb along the wall until
    you are back on the ground. In this hallway, you will see two fountains. Don't
    try to open them yet. A Throne Demon will appear at the far end of the hallway
    and make its way over to a lever. Make your way over there as well and kill it.
    Once you have killed it and any Minions that spawn, pull the lever and open the
    fountains. The one on the right has a Piece of Silver [SP22] inside. When you
    try to make your way to the Demon Door, another Throne Demon will appear and
    pull the lever. Kill it and pull the lever again to lower the fire and open the
    Door.
    
    When you open the Door, you will see Virgil. Talk with him to receive "The
    Harrowing" commentary. After you talk with him, jump and grab onto a bone
    ladder. Climb up and open the fountains you find up here. In one of the
    corners, there is a Demon Dog that will give you Calvacanti's Blade when you
    destroy it. If you are still trying to find a Beatrice Stone [BS6], the
    fountain next to the Demon Dog will have one for you. Go back down to where you
    came from and drop down from there. Drop down a couple bone ladders onto a rope
    spanning the chasm. Make your way across and drop down. There will be Health
    and Mana fountains as well as Emperor Frederick II, one of the Damned. Pass
    judgment, open the fountains, and continue down the ramp. When you enter this
    room, you will have your first encounter with a Heretic. When you first begin
    the fight, you will notice a purple orb over it. This is part of the Heretic's
    Special Ability. Whenever there is a Heretic in a fight, whether it is alone or
    in a group, no enemy can be harmed by Holy Cross attacks until the Heretic has
    been defeated. After you kill the first, a second will appear with a few
    Minions. Proceed through the opening that appears after the gate drops. 
    
    Climb across the wall, avoiding the fire until you come to a Beatrice Statue.
    Open the two nearby fountains and follow the path. Gates will then rise,
    locking you in with a Throne Demon. After he is defeated, a Heretic will appear
    with a few Fire Guardians. Because the only way to kill Fire Guardians it to
    hit them with a Holy Cross attack first, you must kill the Heretic first so
    that your Holy Cross attacks take effect. You can also use a Holy Spell to put
    out their flames. Pull the lever a cauldron above you will begin to pour out
    its contents. Then, the statue in the middle of the path will rise, revealing a
    Demon Door. Open the door and climb along the wall on the left. When you reach
    the top, you will see Virgil. Talk with him and receive the commentary
    "Epicurus". On the left side of the ledge are Health and Mana fountains. Go
    through the Demon Door to proceed. 
    
    When you enter this room, make your way to the left side and grab the box and
    pull it onto the button in the middle of the room. Once you place it on the
    button, a ledge in front of the middle flame will shake and then rise up a
    little. Once the platform shakes, hold the O button and push the box onto the
    platform. Jump up on the box to next ledge. When you attempt to make your way
    towards the lever, you will enter a fight with a Pagan. These creatures are
    like stronger Heretics; however, these creatures don't have the ability to
    negate Holy Cross attacks. After killing it, you will have to kill another one
    and a Heretic. You should probably have the "Confessional" Trophy after these
    fights. Pull the lever to stop the flames for later. After the fight, go
    through the doorway on the left pass judgment on the soul of Cavalcante de
    Cavalcanti. 
    
    After judging Cavalcanti, climb along the wall. When you get to the points
    where you have to jump across a gap, make sure that not yellow fireballs are
    falling or they will knock you down and you will die. After two come in quick
    succession, jump across. Once you reach the bottom, open the Demon Door. First,
    go to the right and open the Health and Mana fountains. Then go to the far
    right corner of the area and open the fountain for a Piece of Silver [SP23].
    Grab the box the is nearby and bring it back to the lever at the beginning of
    room. Place along the wall, next to the cauldron. Pull the lever to have the
    cauldron pour out what gets dumped into it and the statue will rise. Push the
    crate you brought here underneath the back lip of the cauldron so it and the
    statue don't reset to their original positions. Once the cauldron tries to
    reset, the gate that remained up earlier will now drop. A note will appear on
    the bottom of the screen saying "Wisdom of St. Lucia: Your time here is done.
    Go back the way you came from". As you backtrack and jump off the ledge where
    you fought the Heretic and Pagans, you will have to kill off some Fiends. They
    are pretty much the same as Pests, except they shoot ice and it cannot be
    blocked. 
    
    Once you make your way back to where the statue was when you originally entered
    the level, you will have to fight a Pagan, then a Heretic and some Fire Minions
    in the same spot where you fought a Throne Demon and a Heretic with some Fire
    Guardians. After the battle, the gates will drop once more, allowing you to
    continue. Open the fountains and then climb up the wall and follow it until you
    reach a ledge with a Demon Door. Enter the room and open the fountain. Jump on
    the first platform and then jump onto the second platform. Kill the Pests that
    you encounter. You may have to wait a while for the second platform to come
    back down. As you are riding up on the second platform, jump to the right,
    above the first platform to reach an alcove with a Demon Dog and fountain. The
    fountain contains a Piece of Silver [SP24] and the Dog will give you the Seal
    of Epicurus relic. You can either wait for the second platform to come down or
    drop down back onto the first to continue. When the second platform reaches the
    top, jump into the alcove on the left to find the soul of Farinata. Pass
    judgment and get back onto the second platform. Make your way to the third
    platform. Once you reach the top, pull the lever and the fire will be
    deactivated.
    
    Continue down this path and jump up to a rope when you reach the end. Once you
    reach the end drop down and open the fountain. Pull the lever to empty another
    cauldron and raise the statue further, eventually destroying it. Jump onto the
    remains and up to the ledge. Use the Beatrice Statue if you wish and open the
    Demon Door. Climb along the wall on the left and drop down once you reach the
    corner. Open the fountains and drop down the bone ladder. You will reach the
    ledge with Demon Dog that you have passed a few times but was unable to reach.
    Destroy the Dog for the relic Frederick's Ring and open the fountain for a
    Piece of Silver [SP25] and climb back up. 
    
    Make you way to edge past the fountains and the stalactites will begin to fall
    since the level started shaking when you opened the Demon Door. Wherever there
    is a spot in the ground is where the stalactites will land. Wait for the one to
    land on the spot nearby and jump across. After crossing, a stalactite will land
    on the second spot. When you cross over the bit of the floor, it will fall
    down. Make your way to the end of the path and jump onto the first ledge. You
    have to be quick here because the ledges can and will give away at any instant
    and fall into the dark abyss. After jumping off the second ledge, you will
    watch the third ledge crumble away. Jump and press R1 to swing to the next
    ledge. As you let go and fly through the air, part of that ledge will break
    away and you will land and cling to the wall. Climb up and run down the path.
    As you are making your way across, ledges will break away right in front of you
    and, if you are not quick and careful, from right underneath you. Once you
    reach the last ledge, a giant wall will break away and you will have to grab
    onto the climbable wall behind it. Climb up and run down the path. Once you get
    out into the open, a rock will fall, blocking the way back and you will receive
    the Trophy "The Harrowing" for escaping.
    
    Talk with Virgil before you begin your descent into Violence. After having a
    long conversation with him about the remaining three Circles, you will receive
    the "Three More Circles" commentary. Use the Beatrice Statue if you wish and
    begin the descent into Violence. Drop down the bone ladder to enter
    
    ==============
    DI2J. Violence
    ==============
    Once you grab the first rope, make your way to the end and drop to the second
    rope. Do NOT drop to the third rope yet; instead go all the way to end to the
    ledge with many a collectable. First, open the fountain to find a Piece of
    Silver [SP26]. Next, judge the soul of Attila. Then, destroy the Demon Dog for
    the Shoe of Nessus relic. Jump back onto the rope, go back, and drop down onto
    the third rope. When you reach the end of the third rope, let go and press R1
    to grab the grapple point and swing to the next rope. Shimmy to the end and
    drop down to the rope below. Slide down and destroy the rock to cause the
    statue holding the axe to rotate. Turn the wheel until it won't turn anymore
    and the statue will snap back. Do this two more times and this time, the axe
    head will break the object blocking the path ahead and create a grapple point.
    Climb back up the rope and swing over towards the axe head. Grapple the axe and
    swing over to the bone ladder and slide down. 
    
    Once you land, make your way over towards Virgil. You will stopped and the
    camera will pan around the area. Go talk with Virgil and you will receive the
    commentary "Violence". Continue to the end of the path and open the Health and
    Mana fountains. Jump up to the ledge and you will face a new enemy: an Arch
    Demon. They will use their wings as a shield to block your attacks. When you
    get their health low enough, R2 will appear over them and you will tear off
    their wings. Lower their health more and you can judge them. Jump to the next
    platform and climb up the bone ladder. There will be a furnace that will expel
    fire across the entire floor, slowly chipping away at Dante's health. Make your
    way to the left side of the floor and grapple onto the hanging interaction
    point to swing over to the other side. Two Arch Demons will spawn. Kill them
    and make your way to the far end of the floor. Drop down the wall and open the
    fountain for a Piece of Silver [SP27]. Climb back up and drop down the wall to
    the left of the furnace. Climb farther along the wall and you will find a Demon
    Dog with the relic Attila's Armor in its possession
    
    Jump onto the platform and quickly jump from platform and into the cage and out
    the other end. You will have to be quick about making it from platform to
    platform and cage because jumping on one will cause it to sink. Once you reach
    the other side you will hear Lucifer talking to you but he won't appear. Jump
    up to the ledge on the left and open the fountain for a Piece of Silver [SP28].
    Talk with Virgil and the commentary "Wood of Suicides" commentary. Save at the
    Beatrice Statue and continue along the path. As you make your way along the
    path, a Seductress will appear and the plant will drop three balls of light,
    killing the Seductress. Ahead, another tree will start doing the same thing.
    Attack the glowing red spot on the right and it will stop and you can continue.
    
    
    As you progress farther through the woods, a bunch of roots will pop out of the
    ground, preventing you from going back. You will then hear a woman calling
    Dante and you will see another suicide tree ahead. When it begins dropping
    whatever it is that it drops, don't get too close otherwise it will suck you in
    and, if you don't press the O button enough or quickly Dante will stab himself,
    hence suicide tree. Another tree lies ahead on the path, but it can be stopped
    by attacking the red light next to the Health fountain. Continue along the path
    and you will see another tree near a Mana fountain. Once you enter the
    clearing, you will be ambushed by a Heretic and some Fiends. After all of them
    have been killed, the flames blocking the path will disappear. Continue along
    the path and open the Soul fountain. Farther down the path will be the soul of
    Pietro della Vigna. 
    
    After judging the soul, continue down the path and you will slide to the bank
    of the river. As you hear Lucifer, open the fountain and jump across. Grab the
    block and push it across along the path next to the Mana fountain and place it
    in front of the incline. Open the Health and Mana fountains and grab the block.
    Hold the O button to throw it up the incline. Jump onto the block and up to the
    Beatrice Statue. Attack the red light and follow the path and you will end up
    coming out where the roots appeared out of the ground earlier. 
    
    Continue through the path that you just opened up. As you make your way towards
    the ledge, the camera will face a pool of blood. A wall of flames will appear
    and a tree with a few plants will drop down over the arena. Whenever it drops
    down, the red orb that you need to hit to cause it to go back up will appear in
    the center, near the pool. During the fight, there will be some Minions and
    Throne Demons. When all the enemies have been defeated, you will see a figure
    in the vines and Virgil will appear at your side. About halfway through, you
    will find out that the woman hanging is Dante's mother. She will also tell you
    how she died and that you can still save Beatrice. After you absolve her
    (happens during the cut scene, you don't do anything), you will receive your
    final spell, Suicide Fruit. After the cut scene, the fight will continue and
    you will have to kill more Minions and Throne Demons.
    
    Double jump up to the ledge and you will come to a desert area. Talk with
    Virgil and get the "Abominable Sands" commentary. Continue towards the Beatrice
    Statue and open the Health fountain. Continue down the path and open the Mana
    fountain. Continue on and get rid of the Exploding Minions. Open the soul
    fountain and jump up on the block. Double jump up to the ledge to find the soul
    of Brunetto Latini. Absolve him if you want the Trophy "Old Friend". Open the
    fountain next to him for a Piece of Silver [SP29]. Continue ahead and you will
    be ambushed a couple Heretics, Fire Minions, and a Throne Demon. As you walk
    ahead, you will see another Damned soul. Jump over the boiling blood and pass
    judgment on Guido Guerra. On the ledge near where you jump from will be a
    fountain. Open it to find the final Piece of Silver [SP30]. Enter the building
    and open the Health and Mana fountains. 
    
    When you try and continue on, you will come to a large room with an arch at the
    end. Dante will see the remains of a ship and then have a flashback.
    Afterwards, you will enter a fight with Damned Crusaders. These creatures are
    weak and the only thing they have to help them is their shield. After the have
    all been killed, follow the path around and kill off some Fiends. After jumping
    to the platform, jump up to the platform on your right and kill any fiends that
    appear. Open the fountain for some souls. Jump to the ledge on the left and
    destroy the Demon Dog for the Memory of Acre relic. Jump back to the ledge with
    the fountain and double jump off the far end to continue on. 
    
    Once you reach the next room, you will have to move a platform from the bottom
    of the room to the top. You will fight off endless waves of Minions and Throne
    Demons. To move on, push the platform up to the top and jump the two ledges on
    the left. Jump on the platform as it SLOWLY rolls back down and jump to the
    ledge with the Health Fountain. Climb the wall and follow the path to the
    Beatrice Statue, Mana fountain, and Virgil. Talk with him before you climb down
    and he will add "The River Phlegethon" to your journal. Slide down the bone
    ladder in front of him and get ready for the boss fight
    
    ***Fight vs. Francesco***
    
    When you land, Francesco will appear and he is really pissed off with you.
    Francesco is sort of a weaker version of Marc Antony. Most of his attacks are
    short range attacks. He has a couple of quick slash attacks. If you are far
    enough away from him, he will throw a sword at you and then pull another one
    out of his back. Eventually, he will throw a sword and it will get stuck in the
    ground. Then go to the sword to grab and throw it at Francesco to break his
    shield. You can also break the shield by attacking him enough. While his shield
    is destroyed, give him hell and use any attack that you know to lower his
    health. His shield is his main source of power. It will greatly reduce the
    amount of damage he takes, but without it, his defense is very weak. 
    
    After a while without his shield, he will create a new shield and summon 3
    Damned Captains at the same time. The physical difference between Crusaders and
    Captains is that the Captain's shields are surrounded in flames. Keep wailing
    on him until he has no health left and R2 appears above him. When that does,
    Dante will jump in his back and you will have to quickly press the O button to
    pull out the sword that goes through his heart. After you do that, you will
    receive the relic Francesco's Forgiveness. You will then watch Francesco trying
    to make sense of what happened and then Dante will absolve him. You will
    receive the Trophy "Brotherhood" and the platform will begin to descend. As you
    are going down, you will have to fight off Damned Captains, a pair of Arch
    Demons, and a pair of Heretics. Once you reach the bottom, you will have
    entered Fraud. 
    
    ===========
    DI2K. Fraud
    ===========
    After riding the lift down after defeating Francesco, open the Health and Mana
    fountains and save at the Beatrice Statue. As you try and continue on, Dante
    will recall something about the Malebolge. You will then see Beatrice being
    carried towards you by Guardian Demons. While Dante pleads with Beatrice to
    come back to him, she says that there are 10 circles in Fraud. Before she
    disappears, she will tell a new enemy, the Malacoda, to show you your final
    resting place. The Malacoda is pretty much a Throne Demon with the abilities of
    one and the abilities of Fire creatures. Their attack style is the same as a
    Throne Demon, but they are able to turn into fire at will. Just like with the
    Fire creatures, hit them with a Holy Cross attack to extinguish the flames.
    After you have killed it, continue across the bridge. As you continue down the
    path, you will see the Damned soul of Thias the Harlot on ledge to the right of
    a Demon Door. Pass judgment and open the door. 
    
    After opening the door, pull the lever to lower the lift. Once you reach the
    bottom, open the Health and Mana fountains and follow the path to the right.
    Open the door and you will hear Beatrice's voice. This room is for the
    Panderers and Seducers. In each challenge, you will be given and objective. If
    you can complete the objective within a certain time limit, you will receive
    1,500 bonus souls per challenge. Once you open the door, jump onto the
    platform. As you approach the other side, you will need to jump because the
    platform will go into the hole in the wall and you will fall. Go to the center
    of the arena to activate the Challenge.
    
    Panderers and Seducers-Infinite Magic
    Objective: Kill all Enemies using Infinite Mana
    Bonus Soul objective: Complete in under 75 seconds
    
    Because you have unlimited amounts of Mana, it is recommended to constantly use
    Sins of the Father. If you are playing on a lower difficulty, the amount of
    damage the enemies take before they die is lowered, making it easier to
    complete in the time limit for the bonus souls. This is also an excellent place
    to get a few Trophies. Through this challenge, it is possible to get
    "Superstition", "Masterpiece", and "Poetry in Motion". If you are going for
    "Poetry in Motion" you may need to come back and do the challenge on Infernal
    difficulty otherwise the challenge may be complete before you reach 666. Some
    useful relics for this challenge are Coin of Plutus, which increases the combo
    window and hit count, Medusa's Call, which increases the amount of damage dealt
    from Dante's ranged and projectile attacks, and Tristan's Desire, which
    increases the amount of damage done by Magic attacks. The only catch is you
    have to have Holy Level 5 to use Medusa's Call. After the challenge is
    complete, a bridge will fall and you can proceed. 
    
    Go across the bridge and climb along the wall. Once you make your way to the
    other end of the wall, open the Health and Mana fountains and use the Beatrice
    Statue, if you wish. Follow the path to the left and open the Demon Door to the
    next room. There will be a metal claw hanging from the ceiling with a grapple
    point inside. The claw will close so you will have to be quick about crossing
    otherwise the claw will close and Dante will fall and die. Head towards the
    center to activate the next challenge
    
    Flatterers-100 Combo
    Objective: Get a 100-hit combo
    Bonus soul objective: Complete in under 30 seconds
    
    As compared to fighting about 1 out of every 4 creatures you have met in the
    previous challenge, the only creatures you need to fight in this challenge are
    Guardian Demons and Greed Minions. You can either keep slashing away with the
    scythe or spamming the Holy Cross. Either way, once you reach a 100-hit combo,
    any remaining enemies will instantly die and a bridge will fall to the arena.
    The useful relics for this challenge are Coin of Plutus, Memory of Acre, which
    makes it so that Dante cannot be harmed while executing Holy Cross attacks, and
    Shoe of Nessus, which makes your Light scythe attacks unavoidable. To use
    Memory of Acre, you need to be Holy Level 5 and to use Shoe of Nessus, you need
    to be Unholy Level 5.
    
    Go across the bridge, onto the platform and pull the lever. Once you pull the
    lever, the chains holding the platform will break. The platform will fall a
    little, stop and shake, and then begin to fall again. A few seconds after it
    begins falling again, an opening will appear on the left. As soon as you see
    it, jump over to it or else will fall to your death. Continue down the path and
    open the Health and Mana fountains and use the Beatrice Statue. Open the Demon
    Door on the right and listen to Beatrice. There is a platform on the left and
    on the right tht rise and fall on their own, by themselves. Jump across and
    walk into the center for the next challenge. 
    
    Simonists-Air Kills
    Objective: Kill 5 enemies while they are airborne
    Bonus souls objective: Complete in under 1 minute
    
    Considering that neither of the enemies you will face fly naturally, this
    challenge can be pretty tough the get the bonus souls from. There will always
    be a Guardian Demon and 2 Damned Captains in the arena at once. The only enemy
    that you will be able to get into the air is the Guardian Demon. Keep hammering
    away at them until R2 appears above them. Hold Triangle to perform Diabolic
    Ascension and keep using the Light attacks until they die. Repeat this until
    the challenge is complete and the bridge falls down. 
    
    Cross the bridge and jump up to grab the rope. Swing across and drop down onto
    the bone ladder. Slide down onto another rope and swing across it. Once you
    drop down from the second rope, you will find the Damned soul of Tiresias.
    After passing judgment, open the Health and Mana fountains and save at the
    Beatrice Statue. Open the Demon Door to continue. To make your way to the
    arena, jump onto the platform when it reaches the ledge you are on. It won't
    stay and I wouldn't recommend walking onto it. You will have to jump onto a
    falling platform. Once it drops and hits the wall, it pops right back up and
    stays for a few seconds.
    
    Sorcerers-Stay in the Air
    Objective: Stay in the air for 8 seconds
    Bonus souls objective: Kill 2 enemies while completing challenge in the air
    
    The only enemies that you will have to deal with are a pair of Guardian Demons.
    This is probably the best chance at getting "Poetry in Motion" in your first
    playthrough. Just keep using your highest Holy Cross attack (preferable Holy
    Barrage or Holy devastation) on them until you reach 666. You will want to have
    Coin of Plutus equipped to help you reach 666 because it increases the amount
    of time that you have to attack and maintain your Hit Counter. You will want to
    keep the Demons on opposite sides. One you have hit the O button the maximum
    amount of times on one Demon, turn around and do the same thing to the other
    Demon. There will times where it is hard to keep them on opposite sides. If
    they block your attacks long enough, your timer will reset because the hits
    have to land. Holy Devastation comes in handy here because the final wave is
    unblockable. Now back to the challenge. This one is sort of tough. You have to
    remain in the air of 8 seconds in one jump. The best way to do this is to
    weaken one of the Demons down until R2 appears. You will want to punish the
    Demon and have the finisher be the one where you jump on it's back and try to
    decapitate it. The best way to do this without the Demon throwing you off are
    to hit O three times, count to one, and repeat until the challenge is over and
    the bridge drops.
    
    When you get onto the elevator, you will notice that the wheel needs to be
    destroyed. Once you do that, the left will begin to drop and you will, once
    again, have to jump off at the right time to continue on. About a second after
    it starts dropping, you should see the opening begin to appear on the left.
    Jump onto the ledge and open the Health and Mana fountains and use the Beatrice
    Statue. Open the Demon Door on the right and you will see a platform with a
    crank on it. Turn it until the platform lines up with the arena and then a
    little more. Once you let go of the crank, the platform will quickly begin to
    return to its original position. 
    
    Politicians-Protect Innocent
    Objective: Destroy all enemies and protect the human
    Bonus souls objective: Keep all innocents alive
    
    There will be two humans in the lower corners of the arena and Exploding
    Minions will spawn from the upper corners of the arena. The main goal is to
    keep at least one civilian alive long enough to complete the challenge. As time
    ticks away (There is no timer on the HUD), the Minions will begin spawning
    faster. When the challenge first begins, you can grab them and throw them;
    however, you will want to be careful where you aim because if you throw them
    into the humans, they will die. If both of the humans die, you will
    automatically fail the challenge. As you progress farther through the
    challenge, the Minions will begin spawning 2-4 at a time. Your best bet is to
    stand near the center and keep using Holy Cross attacks. Once you hit them,
    they will divert their attention towards you. If they happen to kill one of the
    humans, move from the middle to in front of the remaining human because the
    Minions travel in a straight path from their spawn corner to the human corner,
    unless you hit them first. Cross the bridge once it drops. 
    
    You will have to maneuver your way along the ropes and drop from rope to rope
    until you reach the fourth rope and you will end up over the ledge. Walk down
    it, open the Health and Mana fountains and use the Beatrice Statue. Open the
    Demon Door and to reach the arena in this challenge is sort of like reaching it
    for the second challenge (Flatterers-100 Combo). The difference is that this
    claw will wiggle a little before the grapple point becomes visible
    
    Hypocrites-No Magic
    Objective: Kill all Enemies without using Mana
    Bonus souls objective: Complete in under 1 minute
    
    The first wave of enemies you have to face include a Throne Demon and some
    Damned Crusaders. Once you have killed off all of them, the next wave will
    appear, consisting of a Heretic (who will usually appear first), some Damned
    Captains, and more Damned Crusaders. Once you have killed off about half of the
    wave, a Beast Tamer, riding an Asterian Beast, will push down the bridge and
    the challenge will be cancelled. You will still have to survive the enemy
    onslaught, but now you are allowed to use Magic since the challenge was
    cancelled when the Beast entered the arena, which means no bonus souls. Once
    have taken control of the Beast, you will bear Beatrice say "You have stolen
    everything from me", and a giant statue will fall. The Beast will grab it and
    you will have to hit O quickly a few times to have the Beast toss it back up.
    You will dismount the Beast and land on top of a giant piece of falling rubble.
    As you are falling, you will be prompted to swing across using R1 and then will
    fall and grab onto a rope. 
    
    Once you land on the rope, shimmy to the left and drop down. Open the Health
    and Mana fountains near the Beatrice Statue and save if you want. Go to the
    right and open the Demon Door to enter the next room. To reach the arena, jump
    onto the first platform when it comes near the ledge. About halfway there, jump
    onto the second platform and quickly jump up to the arena because the ledge
    goes into a hole in the wall and Dante will fall to his death. 
    
    Thieves-Losing Health
    Objective: Kill all enemies-before health depletes
    Bonus souls objective: Complete in under 1 minute
    
    There are three waves in this challenge. During the fights, Dante's health will
    slowly begin to be chipped away. If you have already purchased Divine Armor or
    Blessed Spirit Tap, you probably won't notice your health depleting because you
    will just as easily regain it. The first wave includes some Fiends and Minions,
    and overall isn't very hard. The next wave will include some Guardian Demons
    and Seductresses of Lust. If you have Shoe of Nessus and can equip it, it will
    be very useful in killing the Seductresses. The final wave has some Damned
    Crusaders and a Glutton. Once you have killed off the final wave, the bridge
    will be lowered, allowing you to proceed. 
    
    When you reach the lift, you will see an interaction point on the climbable
    wall. You will have to scale the wall to reach the next area. There is a reason
    for the lift to be there however. Once you have made it far enough down the
    wall, the chains will break and the lift will begin free falling. If you are
    underneath the lift, you will be killed and have to start climbing again. Once
    you reach the end of the wall, head down the hall and open the fountains and
    use the Beatrice Statue. Open the Demon Door on the left and enter the next
    room. When you enter this room, you will see a line of fire in front of the
    arena. There will be a platform that will pass underneath the fire. When it
    reaches the ledge jump on it. Jump over the fire and onto the arena before the
    platform reaches the hole. 
    
    Evil Counselors-No Block
    Objective: Kill all Enemies-while unable to block
    Bonus souls objective: Complete in under one minute. 
    
    At first glance, this challenge doesn't seem to be too hard. You start out
    having to kill a pair of Hoarder-Wasters. Once they have been destroyed, you
    may wish that you were able to block. The next wave includes Minions and a pair
    of Seductresses. The best way to keep them busy is to use Sins of the Father on
    them while you take out the Minions, then you will be able to focus your
    attention on them. Once you have killed them off because they will most likely
    be the last enemies you take out, the bridge will fall and you can proceed
    
    When you cross the bridge, drop down the bone ladder on the left side of the
    ledge. From there you will have to drop down to a rope and shimmy across to the
    other side. Once you reach the other side, drop down and grab onto the
    climbable wall. Make your way down and around and pull yourself up. Open the
    fountains and save at the Beatrice Statue, then open the Demon Door at the end
    of the hallway. To reach the arena, you will have to turn another platform with
    a crank in the center. You will want to turn this one a little farther than you
    did with the previous challenge that had this entrance because there is a fire
    gate on the platform that you will have to jump over
    
    Sowers of Discord-Single Combo
    Objective: Kill all Enemies without resetting the Hit Counter
    Bonus souls objective: Complete in under 1 minute. 
    
    The enemies you have to face are a bunch of Minions, Babies and some Guardian
    and Throne Demons. Because the challenge is to kill all enemies in one combo,
    you will definitely want to have Coin of Plutus equipped. The best way to go
    about this challenge is to continuously use Holy Cross attacks. To make this
    challenge a little easier, also equip Lord's Blessing, to increase the damage
    Holy Cross attacks inflict, and Medusa's Call (if you can), to increase the
    damage your ranged and projectile attacks inflict. Do not pass judgment on any
    enemies because in the time it would take to do so, your Hit Counter will most
    likely be reset. When a Demon is in the arena, focus on it. The other enemies
    you will have to kill will usually die after using Holy Devastation and having
    each wave land, but the Demons take a little longer to kill. Once all enemies
    have been vanquished, the bridge will drop. 
    
    Go to the elevator and pull the lever. The elevator will begin to drop rapidly,
    but it will stop once you reach the next hallway so there is no need to jump
    off. Once the lift stops, you will see the Damned soul of Myrrha. Judge her and
    continue on, opening the fountains and saving at the Beatrice Statue. Open the
    Demon Door for your final challenge. To reach this arena, you will have to ride
    the platform while jumping over two fire fences before the platform reaches its
    hole.
    
    Falsifiers-Endurance Test
    Objective: Kill all Enemies
    Bonus souls objective: Complete in under 5 minutes
    
    Just by looking at the Bonus souls challenge, you should get the idea that
    there is a reason why this test is named the Endurance Test. Hopefully you have
    remembered the easiest way to kill every enemy you have faced up to this point.
    In this challenge, you will face every enemy that can be found in your
    Bestiary, except for the bosses. If this is your first playthrough, odds are,
    you probably won't finish in under 5 minutes. The best relics to have equipped
    for this challenge are Lord's Blessing, Death Blade, Francesco's Forgiveness,
    and Ciacco's Bile. If you don't have enough room for all of them, just pick and
    choose which ones you want to use, you can always switch them out at any time
    during the challenge. Once you have killed off probably enough creatures to get
    all of the "Kill X amount of enemies" Trophies, the bridge will drop and you
    can proceed on. 
    
    Once you reach the end of the bridge, Beatrice will appear before you. Dante
    will claim that he has faced all his sins, but Beatrice disagrees. She will
    tell Dante to look into the Ninth and final Circle. As he looks out over the
    edge, he will have another flashback to the Crusades. This probably would have
    been at the end. You see a King asking who is responsible for the slaughter in
    front of him. Francesco will tell Dante to look after Beatrice and then he
    confesses. Before the flashback ends, you hear the King mutter something about
    Saladin and Hell. Snapping back into reality, Beatrice gets mad because she
    thinks that Francesco's death was your fault. Dante then realizes what he has
    done and says that he has given up on his journey and his place is in Hell. He
    then takes Beatrice's Cross, and says that maybe one day she will forgive him.
    When she sees the cross, she then begins calm down and white smoke appears
    around her. She will then return to the way she was in Florence and an angel
    will appear and take her to Heaven. Before the angel leaves with Beatrice, he
    will say that your redemption is near and that you will see her again.
    
    Continue out of the arena and go to the left. Almost as soon as you disappear
    behind the wall, you will find Virgil. Talk with him to receive "The Final
    Circle" commentary. After he disappears, look down the path and you will see
    some fountains, a Beatrice Statue, and a Damned Soul. Judge Fra Alberigo, save
    at the Beatrice Statue and climb down the bone ladder. Drop down the second
    bone ladder onto a rope. When you reach the rope, you will see one of the
    giants Virgil talked of. Shimmy across the rope to the end and drop down onto
    the platform. You will be ambushed by plenty of Pests and eventually an Arch
    Demon. There will be another giant behind this ledge and he will breathe across
    the arena. When he does, keep jumping back towards him (Although you can't
    reach him) as he will try and blow you off the ledge. Once you have killed off
    the two Arch Demons, some grapple points will appear to the right. Swing from
    the first point over to the rope.
    
    Once you are on the rope, you will have to get to the bottom and start swinging
    towards the right and break the object in your way. Once you do, jump over to
    the bone ladder. Go to the top, and you will find two soul fountains and a
    Damned soul on top. After judging Mordred, slide down the bone ladder. When you
    reach the bottom, wait for the giant to stop breathing. Let go and grapple to
    the first point. Swing over to the second point and then over to the bone
    ladder. 
    
    ===============
    DI2L. Treachery
    ===============
    Once you land, you will slide down the icy slope. You will stop in front of
    Virgil and stare out over a long, icy bridge. Talk with Virgil to receive the
    "Treachery" commentary, the final Virgil commentary. If you have collected all
    of them up to this point, you will receive "The Guide" trophy while talking
    with him the first time. You must now make your way across the bridge. There is
    only one safe path, and it is very narrow. If you step off the path, the ice
    will begin to shake beneath you and fall away a few seconds later. If you look
    closely (And by look closely I don't necessarily mean put your face a few
    inches away from the TV screen) as you make your way along the bridge, you will
    see that the safe path is just a bit lower than the unsafe areas. Once you
    reach the end of the bridge, go to the left to find a Health and Mana fountain,
    the final Damned soul of Count Ugolino. Pass judgment and then save using the
    final Beatrice Statue. Destroy the breakable object and the ice will break
    beneath you. Prepare yourself for the final battle
    
    ***Fight vs. Lucifer-Phase 1***
    
    As you fall, you will see that the chain you just destroyed held Lucifer's
    hands together. When you regain control of Dante the fight will begin. Lucifer
    will begin to pound the arena with his fists. When he does this, it will emit a
    fast-moving shockwave. The shockwave will not encompass the whole arena so if
    you move towards either the left or the right, you will only have to avoid them
    when the slams nearby. After he slams the arena a few times, a light will shine
    in the center of the arena. This will happen when he slams the arena and
    icicles come out of the ground. Run to it and press R2, and be quick in getting
    there because the light doesn't last very long. When you are hovering close to
    his face, attack him a few times with light scythe attacks or combos until he
    rears back in pain, sort of like King Minos. Then attack his lower stomach
    using Holy Cross attacks. After a few blows from Holy Cross, he will use his
    wings to create a strong gust across the arena. He will then send out two
    tornadoes in the arena. If you get caught in them, quickly hit X to get out.
    Once he gets down around 50% health remaining, he will slam his fists into the
    arena quicker and use both hands at times. After stunning him using the light
    in the center of the arena about 4 times, he will switch to the next phase. You
    should equip Lord's Blessing, Medusa's Call, and Ciacco's Bile (For when you
    are low on health and need to use Divine Armor) for this fight.
    
    ***Fight vs. Lucifer-Phase 2***
    
    Lucifer will begin to say that you are the reason he was freed. He will mention
    other well-known historical names, but say that you had a soul blacker than all
    of theirs. He will then open his chest and a smaller form will appear. Dante
    will then say that he came down to save Beatrice and Lucifer will tell you that
    she was only bait. In this fight, you Holy Cross attacks won't work as well on
    him as before and he can return them to you, so you will have to rely on your
    scythe. Lucifer has a few attacks in this form. His first one is a pair of
    slashes at you with his sword and then the third slash will send a wave of
    energy towards you. He will also try and push you out of the way, which won't
    hurt you at all. On occasion, he will also jump up and you will receive some
    Health and Mana. He will then slam back down into the ground, emitting a
    shockwave that encompasses pretty much the whole arena. He can also use fire to
    teleport somewhere in the arena and he will use one of two attacks. He will
    either send out about 6-8 shockwaves, each one faster than the previous one, or
    he will throw about 4 darts of concentrated energy towards you, and will charge
    the fifth one. If the final one hits, it will take out a hefty chunk of health,
    so try and dodge out of the way. You will want to use Redemption whenever you
    have the chance because you scythe attacks will still seem like they are doing
    little damage to him because of how much health he has. The relics you will
    want to have equipped for this fight are Death Blade, Francesco's Forgiveness,
    either Antony's Standard or Wasted Gold, and Eye of Alighiero. You can also sub
    in Ciacco's Bile if you need to use Divine Armor and regain both health and
    mana. Once you get him down to around 25% of his health, the fight will pause
    and Lucifer beings going on a rant of how what he did was far less worse than
    what Dante did. He will then complain that you were a flawed creation, made in
    His image and that he would have to bow to you. He will thank you for breaking
    the Chains of Judeca and allowing him to enter Purgatory, and eventually
    Paradise. The fight will then continue and Lucifer will be flying around the
    arena. He will still use most of the attacks he used earlier, except he will
    not fight with his sword. You will have to press R1 to grapple to his horns and
    then attack him in the air. 
    
    ***Fight vs. Lucifer-Phase 3***
    
    Once Lucifer reappears over the center of the arena, he will breathe fire into
    the center of the pentagram. The five circles at each point of the pentagram
    will rise. You will have to swing from circle to circle until you reach
    Lucifer. When you reach the bottom of each platform, you will begin to fall and
    you will have to hit R1 as you are falling to grab onto the next platform. Once
    you make your way to the fifth platform, hit R1 again and you will grab onto
    Lucifer. He will begin to fly up and you will have to move the Left analog
    stick left, then right when prompted to avoid his attacks. The next sequence
    will have you pressing Square and then hitting O rapidly. The two of you will
    fall back to the arena and there will be an explosion. 
    
    The scene will begin playing with Lucifer with the scythe in his chest and
    Dante standing next to him. Dante will approach to try and get the scythe but
    Lucifer will stop you and clue you in on one minor detail. He will point you
    towards the center and you will see the scene in the beginning where Dante gets
    stabbed in the back. Dante will then see the scene and Lucifer will put it
    plainly say that you are dead and can't go anywhere. He will then get up and
    the scythe will burn up. He will then say the He has forbid it and then express
    his feelings for you. Lucifer will then say that you will use the sins of man
    and Dante's to get back into Paradise. Dante will then say that he has freed
    many souls and ask for absolution. The cross on his chest will begin to erupt
    with souls and Lucifer will try and coax Dante into using the power with
    Lucifer. He will make one final attempt saying that he can reunite you with
    Beatrice and you can rule the Three Realms of the Afterlife together. The souls
    will surround Lucifer and you will use the cross to force him back into the
    giant. The souls will freeze the giant's arms and slam into the ground in front
    of you. The camera will flip to the other side and you will see Dante without
    any clothes and Beatrice will come towards him. You will see the mountain of
    Purgatory off in the distance and Dante will rip off the cross from his chest.
    When it lands on the ground, it will burn up and turn into a snake and you will
    hear Lucifer laughing in the background. 
    
    You will now be able to play the Gates of Hell arena and play again in
    Resurrection mode. If you play in Resurrection mode, you will keep all you
    relics that you have collected, abilities you have purchased, and experience
    you have gained. You will start from right after you jump down into Hell. You
    will have to re-find all the Pieces of Silver, Damned souls, and Virgil
    commentaries if you missed any of them; although, if you received all Trophies
    or Achievements for finding all of them, it won't really matter. When you go up
    to a Beatrice Statue, you will be able to change Dante's costume there as well
    as saving your progress. You will also be able to play on Infernal difficulty,
    the highest difficulty, if you dare to choose it. 
    
    =======================
    DI2M. Dark Forest (DLC)
    =======================
    To access the Dark Forest (after downloading it), select "Play Downloadable
    Content" from the main menu. When you begin, you will watch the same cut scene
    you watched when you first started the game, except after showing an overhead
    of Dante's campsite, you take control of Dante. As soon as you try to leave the
    campsite, you will be attacked by some alternate-looking Temptresses of Lust
    and a Heretic. If you plan on using magic, make sure that your spells are set
    to where you want them to be. You will also have a new Relic: Stone of Wrath.
    Because this level is pretty much a prequel level, this will be the only relic
    available to you while in the Forest. After killing off a few waves, you will
    be allowed to proceed. When you reach the next clearing, you will see
    Beatrice's soul. She tells you that she will send Virgil to guide you and then
    disappears. 
    
    After she disappears, pass through the portal behind where Beatrice's soul
    appears. When you reach the next area, you will see the man who killed Beatrice
    and Alighiero, and he will run through a portal. Walk up to the statue in the
    center and interact with it. It will tell you "The Moon's light shines from the
    North. Travel East for the Spotted Leopard blocks all other roads." After the
    box disappears, a ray of moonlight will shine from a random direction.
    Whichever direction the moonlight comes from, go through the portal to the
    right of the light (in a clockwise direction). In the next area, the assassin
    will jump through another portal, and you will be attacked by some Fiends.
    Remember to go through the portal to the right (clockwise) of the light. This
    will happen in every area until you come to one with a bridge.
    
    Cross over the bridge and you will see Beatrice's soul again. After she
    disappears, you will be attacked by a variation of a Guardian Demon. Kill it
    and the waves of Guardian Demons, Temptresses and Damned Captains. Interact
    with the statue after all enemies have been killed. It will tell you "The
    Moon's light shines from the North. Travel West to avoid the lion's ravenous
    hunger." Then interact with the statue and move it until the ray of light
    emitted from its mouth points to the entrance to the left (Counter-clockwise)
    of the moonlight and go through that portal. In the next area, turn the lion
    statue so that the ray of light points in the opposite direction that the other
    ray of light is pointing. More or less, you want to make a straight line with
    the light. Then go through the portal that the light from the lion is pointing
    to. If you are passing through the correct portal, you will see the assassin
    run through one of the portals. Keep doing this until you reach a new area. 
    
    Eventually, you will reach area with a wolf statue and the assassin will
    disappear again. Kill the enemies that appear and interact with the statue. The
    She Wolf will tell you "Seek the moon to reveal the murderer. Intercept him."
    Pull the statue at the far end and place it in front of entrance at the top.
    The moonlight will begin shifting around. When the light appears over the
    portal on the left, run through. The assassin will come out of the portal on
    the right. Run back the way you came and Dante will intercept him. The statue
    you put in front of the top portal will melt away and the assassin will escape
    that way. You will then need to kill some Fiends, Temptresses, Guardian Demons,
    and a Malacoda before you can proceed. Follow the path and Dante will look out
    over Florence. You will then receive the Dark Forest Rewards, one for making it
    through, and one for making it through without getting lost. To get the second
    one, you are not allowed to backtrack during the first two puzzles. 
    
    ========================
    DI3. Gates of Hell Arena
    ========================
    After beating the game once, you will unlock the Gates of Hell arena. You can
    find it on the Main Menu, underneath "Load Game". In the arena, you will have
    to progress through as many waves of enemies as you can before you run out of
    time. You will start with 5 minutes on the clock and time will begin counting
    down once you begin. You can earn time by doing various tasks in each wave. You
    can receive a 5 second bonus by passing judgment, a 15 second bonus by taking
    no damage during the wave, and a 30 second bonus for completing the wave. Once
    you have completed a wave, the clock will stop and won't start again until you
    enter the next arena. To receive to Trophy or Achievement, you must clear all
    50 waves before you run out of time. 
    
    =================
    DI4. Collectables
    =================
    During your trek through Hell, you will come across various collectables. You
    will be able to find Pieces of Silver. For every 5 that you find, you will
    receive extra souls. You can also find Beatrice Stones. Finding 3 of them will
    allow you to auto-absolve Damned souls. When you interact with on of the souls,
    the auto-absolve option will be Triangle (PS3) or Y button (X360). By
    auto-absolving, you will not play the mini-game or receive the bonus souls. You
    can also find Relics. Some relics will require that you have reached a certain
    Holy or Unholy level before you can equip them. As you gain souls, your
    equipped relics will begin to level up, increasing the abilities that they
    provide. If you die after finding any collectable before you reach a
    checkpoint, you will have to get them again. Usually checkpoints are opening
    Demon Doors, using lifts, and coming across a Beatrice Statue. All locations
    listed are according to the walkthrough
    
    ===================
    DI4A. Silver Pieces
    ===================
    There are 30 Pieces of Silver scattered throughout Hell, but you find the last
    one in Violence. For every 5 you collect, you earn an extra 3,000 souls. If you
    start a new game in Resurrection Mode, the Pieces of Silver will be reset and
    you will have to find all of them again. If you are having trouble finding one,
    use the find function. The code for the coins is SP##. Replace the ## with the
    number of the coin you are trying to find. The Pieces are divided into the
    Circles they are found in.

    15-In the room with the giant, spinning spiked contraption, you will have to
    fight off enemies if you drop down below all the ledges you jump around on. The

    this, press Triangle (PS3) or the Y button (X360) to absolve without playing
    the mini-game or receiving bonus souls. There are 6 Beatrice Stones; however,
    you are only able to find 3. Once you have reached 3, the remaining fountains
    that hold Beatrice Stones will now award you with Health, Mana, and about 500
    souls. Some Stones are easy to reach, while others may take a while. The code
    for the Stones is BS#. Replace the # with 1-6 to find them in the main

    Gluttony
    --------
    3-When you are in the Mirror Maze; you will have to complete the puzzle before
    you have a chance to reach the fountain with the stone. After dropping out of
    the door and onto the floating platform, jump to the ledge on the right as it

    door at the end of the ledge will also drop you out of the door that the
    platform passes under. 
    
    Greed
    -----
    4-After obtaining Coin 13, jump back the ledge you jumped from to reach the
    coin. This one may take a few tries to get to. You will want to run off the
    ledge and double jump beneath the rock arch and grab onto the ledge behind the
    arch. The fountain on this ledge will contain a Beatrice Stone, if you still
    don't have 3, or Health, Mana, and some souls if you already have 3. 
    
    Anger
    -----
    5-As you are crossing the rope towards the platform that sinks when you drop on
    it, go all the way to the end of the rope and drop onto the ledge. The fountain
    next to the Mana fountain will have a Beatrice Stone inside if you are still
    short of 3
    
    Heresy
    ------
    6-After finding Virgil early in Heresy, there will be a bone ladder above him
    that you can reach by double jumping. On the far end of this ledge will be a
    Demon Dog. The fountain next to it will hold a Beatrice Stone if you still need
    to find one. If you are still missing one by this point, you will have to go
    back in Resurrection mode and find one that you haven't found already. 
    
    ============
    DI4C. Relics
    ============
    There are 31 Relics scattered throughout the Nine Circles. They can be obtained
    through various means. You will earn Relics by talking with Virgil, defeating
    bosses, and destroying Demon Dogs. At first, you are only allowed to have 2
    Relics equipped at once, but as you level up your Holy and Unholy Levels, you
    have be able to purchase another Relic slot, one from each path. Certain Relics
    require that Dante have reached certain Holy or Unholy levels before they can
    be equipped. When you first find a Relic, it will begin at Level 1. As you earn
    Souls, the Relics equipped will gain experience towards leveling up. The
    highest a Relic can be leveled is to Level 3. Some relics can't be upgraded. If
    you die after finding one, but you haven't reached a checkpoint, you will have
    to get the relic again. When you restart in Resurrection mode, you will keep
    all the relics you have found, and nothing special will happen if you destroy
    Demons Dogs that held relics you already have. If you need help finding a
    relic, just search for the name of the relic. The relics are listed in the
    order found in game
    
    Name: Death Blade
    Location: Shores of Acheron
    Requirements: Unholy Level 1
    Description: Increases the damage of all Scythe attacks and abilities Level 1:
    10% increase
    Level 2: 15% increase
    Level 3: 20% increase
    Talk with Virgil twice when you see him before reaching the Shores of Acheron.
    The first Piece of Silver is an alcove to the left of him. This relic is really
    useful for whenever you attack using your scythe as it will increase the damage
    you inflict
    
    Name: Charon's Oar
    Location: Shores of Acheron
    Requirements: Holy Level 3
    Description: Absolving enemies and the Damned grants an additional Holy boost
    Level 1: 10% boost
    Level 2: 20% boost
    Level 3: 30% boost
    When you are climbing along the outside of Charon, follow the wall around to
    the right and there will be a Demon Dog in an alcove. You should have Charon's
    Oar equipped whenever you plan on absolving one of the Damned. When this relic
    reaches Level 3, you will receive about 800 Holy Experience for each Damned
    soul that you absolve
    
    Name: Eyes of St. Lucia
    Location: Limbo
    Requirements: None
    Description: Dante has a chance to deflect an incoming attack, negating the
    damage and pushing the enemy away
    Level 1: 10% chance
    Level 2: 15% chance
    Level 3: 20% chance
    This relic is hidden early on in Limbo. After you push Charon's head over the
    ledge, destroy the Demon Dog that was behind where the head was. This relic
    isn't one of the more helpful relics, but it isn't one of the more useless
    relics. If you plan on using it, it can be helpful against enemies that attack
    in numbers
    
    Name: Lord's Blessing
    Location: Limbo
    Requirements: Holy Level 1
    Description: Increases the damage of all Cross attacks and abilities
    Level 1: 10% increase
    Level 2: 15% increase
    Level 3: 20% increase
    After you first fight Unbaptized Babies, follow the path until you see Virgil
    next to a Demon Door. Talk to him twice to receive the relic. Just like Death
    Blade powers up your scythe, Lord's Blessing makes your Cross attacks more
    deadly
    
    Name: Saladin's Mercy
    Location: Limbo
    Requirements: Holy Level 4
    Description: A successful Absolution grants the player more Health
    Level 1: 5% increase
    Level 2: 10% increase
    Level 3: 15% increase
    When you enter the Hall of Kings in Limbo (The room with all the statues), go
    up the ramp and to the left. Once you reach the end of the ledge, double jump
    to the left to an alcove and pull the lever inside. The statue in the center
    will lower, revealing a Demon Dog. This relic will come in handy if you are low
    on health and the enemies can be absolved, like Minions, Babies, and Demons.
    
    Name: Tail of Minos
    Location: Limbo
    Requirements: Unholy Level 3
    Description: Punishing enemies and the Damned grants an additional Unholy boost
    Level 1: 10% boost
    Level 2: 20% boost
    Level 3: 30% boost 
    To get this relic, you must defeat King Minos. This relic is essentially an
    Unholy Version of Charon's Oar. Once you level this relic up to Level 3, you
    will receive about 800 Unholy Experience whenever you punish the Damned.
    
    Name: Francesca's Book
    Location: Limbo
    Requirements: Unholy Level 3
    Description: Every 50 kills from the scythe, Dante will gain additional Unholy
    experience
    Level 1: 100 Unholy Experience
    Level 2: 150 Unholy Experience
    Level 3: 250 Unholy Experience
    After defeating King Minos, you will begin to descend into Lust. When you reach
    the second rope (The one that has Coin 06 on a ledge at the top), climb about
    halfway up and swing towards the bone ladders on the right. When you get double
    jump and get close, R1 (PS3) or RB (X360) will appear. Hit it to grab the
    ladders with the scythe and climb up. The Dog will be on the ledge. This relic
    is one of the most useful relics to have in trying to reach Unholy Level 7.
    When this relic reaches Level 3, every 50 kills will give you more Unholy
    Experience than punishing a Throne Demon or a Glutton
    
    Name: Filippo's Rage
    Location: Lust
    Requirements: Unholy Level 5
    Description: Dante can block previously unblockable Demon attacks. Higher
    levels unlock auto-countering the attacks and increases the damage returned. 
    Level 1: Dante can block previously unblockable Demon attacks
    Level 2: Auto-counter unblockable Demon attacks
    Level 3: Increases damage returned
    When you get on the lightning bridge at the beginning of Lust, make your way to
    the third statue on the left (The pair where the lightning balls form). In
    front of the statue will be a climbable wall. Climb along and destroy the Demon
    Dog when you reach the end. This relic's usefulness depends on the situation.
    The unblockable Demon attacks can be easily avoided because it takes the Demons
    a few seconds to use the attacks, making them easy to dodge. If you are having
    trouble avoiding them, then this relic can come in handy when the fight in
    pairs or packs. 
    
    Name: Tristan's Desire
    Location: Lust
    Requirements: None
    Description: Increases the damage of all Magic attacks
    Level 1: 10% increase
    Level 2: 15% increase
    Level 3: 20% increase
    After entering the tower in Lust and defeating the Temptresses when they first
    appear, go to the right side of the room and turn the crank to raise the
    snake's head. Destroy the fangs and turn the crank again. Talk to Virgil twice
    when you see him on the ledge. If you rely on Magic attacks (You will only have
    Righteous Path when you first find it) to fight most of the enemies, you will
    want to level this relic up because the damage increase can really put a dent
    in the enemies health.
    
    Name: Arrow of Paris
    Location: Lust
    Requirements: Unholy Level 1
    Description: Grab attack damage is increased
    Level 1: 25% increase
    Level 2: 50% increase
    Level 3: 100% increase
    When are near the top of the tower, you will have to scale a climbable wall and
    you will eventually come to a ledge with a Beatrice Statue. From the Statue, go
    to the right and you will find a Damned Soul. After judging it, drop down the
    ledge in front of it and you will land on another ledge with a Demon Dog. This
    relic will come in handy against enemies that can't be grabbed by the scythe.
    As you level it up, the grab attack will eventually double the amount of damage
    done
    
    Name: Antony's Standard
    Location: Lust
    Requirements: None
    Description: Increases the rate at which Dante stores Redemption energy
    Level 1: 10% increase
    Level 2: 20% increase
    Level 3: 30% increase
    To get this relic, you must defeat Marc Antony. As you level up this relic, the
    Redemption bar refills quicker. If you use Redemption regularly, this relic is
    a must-use. 
    
    Name: Rain of Gluttony
    Location: Lust
    Requirements: Holy Level 3
    Description: Absolutions stun surrounding enemies
    Level 1: 5 seconds
    Level 2: 10 seconds
    Level 3: 15 seconds
    As you descend towards Gluttony, you will be able to see Cerberus as you make
    your way across the final horizontal rope. Before you continue to the left, go
    to the right and you will find the Demon Dog on a ledge at the end of the rope.
    This relic is very useful when you are fighting off many small enemies, like
    Babies and Minions. As you level this relic up, the time that enemies remain
    stunned for can help you look around and see what else you have to kill to
    proceed. Other than that, this relic will probably remain unequipped at most
    times
    
    Name: Azrael's Apprentice
    Location: Gluttony
    Requirements: Unholy Level 1
    Description: Any successful block on an enemy has a chance to stun them
    Level 1: 10% chance
    Level 2: 15% chance
    Level 3: 25% chance
    You will receive this relic after defeating Cerberus. This relic isn't very
    helpful, unless you are having trouble keeping the enemies from wailing on you.
    Most of the attacks that regular enemies will use against you can be easily
    avoided, unless you are fighting Temptresses or Seductresses. If you can manage
    to stun them, it will give you a small window to start hammering away at them. 
    
    Name: Ciacco's Bile
    Location: Gluttony
    Requirements: Holy Level 5
    Description: Grants Dante persistent Mana regeneration. Leveling up this relic
    will increase the speed of Mana regeneration
    Right before you pass through the arch to enter the Mirror Maze, you will see
    Virgil. Talk to him twice to receive the relic. This relic is one of the more
    useful relics. If you use Magic regularly, especially Divine Armor, you will
    want to have this relic equipped. As you level up this relic, your Mana will
    refill quicker than it normally would
    
    Name: Octavian's Gold
    Location: Gluttony
    Requirements: Holy Level 3
    Description: Grants the ability to perform an automatic special recovery attack
    when Dante is knocked down
    Level 1: Relic is in use
    While descending into Greed, on the ledge above the bone ladder on the left of
    the two vines that are next to each other. The Demon Dog is located next to
    Silver Coin 12. This relic isn't really useful. The range of the special
    recovery move isn't very far and unless there is an enemy in your face when you
    fall, you probably won't hit anything
    
    Name: Crown of Carthage
    Location: Greed
    Requirements: Holy Level 5
    Description: Dante is protected from ranged enemy attack damage
    Level 1: 10% protection
    Level 2: 15% protection
    Level 3: 20% protection
    When you first enter Greed, you will come to a ledge and you will also hear a
    Demon Dog growling somewhere. Drop off the ledge and grab onto it. Shimmy
    across to the right and you will enter a small area and you will see the Demon
    Dog on the ground. Outside of Boss battles, there are very few enemies that
    even use ranged attacks (Pests, Fiends, Demons). If you see the attack coming,
    you can just block it and you won't take much damage at all anyways
    
    Name: Demon's Wing
    Location: Greed
    Requirements: Unholy Level 5
    Description: Dante's aerial attack damage is increased
    Level 1: 10% increase
    Level 2: 15% increase
    Level 3: 20% increase 
    In the room where you first meet the Hoarder-Waster, you will have to kill the
    enemies and make the platforms move. Hop onto the center platform and then onto
    the platform on the right. As you are going up, you will see the Demon Dog in
    an alcove. This relic will inflict extra damage to enemies anytime Dante is in
    the air. This can be really handy if you like to bounce enemies into the air to
    inflict damage
    
    Name: Wasted Gold
    Location: Greed
    Requirements: None
    Description: Every successful attack increase the Redemption refill rate
    Level 1: 10% increase
    Level 2: 20% increase
    Level 3: 30% increase
    In the room with the spinning, spiked contraption, make your way to the door
    the Beast Tamer hid behind and pull the lever that you see. This will stop the
    contraption and will open the cage in the middle, allowing you to reach the
    Demon Dog. If you use Redemption regularly, you will want to use this relic
    anytime that you have Antony's Standard equipped, the combination of these two
    will refill Redemption very quick. 
    
    Name: Coin of Plutus
    Location: Greed
    Requirements: None
    Description: Increases the combo window that allows Dante to acquire style
    points and increment the Hit Counter
    Level 1: 1 second 
    Level 2: 2 seconds
    Level 3: 3 seconds
    After using the Asterian Beast to cross the room with the saw blades for a
    second time, you will see Virgil in front of some prison cells. At the end of
    the room is a climbable wall. The Demon Dog is in the cell on the right, closer
    to where Virgil was. This relic is one that will want to level up to Level 3.
    When you reach the Malebolge challenges in Fraud (Especially the first and
    fourth), you will want to havethis relic at Level 3 to help achieve "Poetry in
    Motion". 
    
    Name: Eye of Alighiero
    Location: Greed
    Requirements: Holy Level 3
    Description: Dante is able to absorb a certain amount of damage when attacked.
    Leveling up this relic increase the damage Dante can absorb.
    To get this relic, you must defeat Alighiero at the end of Greed. Depending on
    the difficulty you are playing on, the damage increase will seem minuscule. It
    will only absorb damage about once every minute
    
    Name: Hoarder's Purse
    Location: Greed
    Requirements: Unholy Level 3
    Description: Increases the time window to execute a counterattack
    Level 1: 30% increase
    Level 2: 60% increase
    Level 3: 90% increase
    After defeating Alighiero, you will see a Health fountain near a Beatrice
    Statue. Jump up to the ledge above the Health fountain and the Demon Dog will
    be at the far end of the ledge. The more you level up this relic, the easier it
    can be to get the "Countermeasures" Reward. 
    
    Name: Medusa's Call
    Location: Anger
    Requirements: Holy Level 5
    Description: Dante's ranged attack and projectile damage is increased
    Level 1: 10% increase
    Level 2: 15% increase
    Level 3: 20% increase
    After finding Coin 19 and pushing the crate down onto the platform, follow the
    new path until you see Virgil. Talk to him until he disappears and he will give
    you the relic. If you are working on the Holy Path, this is one relic you will
    want to level up to Level 3. By the time you reach the Malebolge in Fraud, the
    damage increase will help you clear the challenges faster thanks to the
    additional damage dealt.
    
    Name: Guiding Flame
    Location: Anger
    Requirements: Holy Level 5
    Description: Dante is immune to excrement attacks such as the Glutton's ranged
    attack
    Level 1: Relic is in use
    When you reach the top of the tower in Anger, the Demon Dog is on the platform
    above Coin 21. This is one of the more useless relics. Since it only has one
    level, leveling this relic doesn't matter. Since you only fight a handful of
    Gluttons during the game anyways, this relic should probably not be used at
    all. 
    
    Name: Rage of Farinata
    Location: Heresy
    Requirements: None
    Description: All fountains are immediately broken upon use
    Level 1: Relic is in use
    When you first enter Heresy, talk to Virgil twice and you will receive this
    relic. Just like Guiding Flame, this relic is more or less useless. It probably
    shouldn't be equipped normally, so you can use more useful relics. In the time
    it would take to equip this relic and begin to open the fountain, you probably
    could have opened it the regular way anyways.
    
    Name: Calvacanti's Blade
    Location: Heresy
    Requirements: None
    Description: Turns Dante's evade into an attack, knocking enemies back and
    dealing a small amount of damage
    Level 1: Relic is in use
    After the exiting the hallway of fire that where you found Coin 22, you will
    see Virgil. There will be a bone ladder above him, along the wall. The Demon
    Dog will be on the ledge at the top. If this relic could be leveled up and
    damage dealt increased, this relic might be a little more useful, but as it
    stands, the damage dealt may not even be noticeable on higher difficulties
    anyways. 
    
    Name: Seal of Epicurus
    Location: Heresy
    Requirements: Unholy Level 1
    Description: There is a higher chance to perform a critical strike on any
    attack. Damage from the attack increases by 15% and enemies are knocked down
    when a critical strike is landed.
    Level 1: 10% increase
    Level 2: 15% increase
    Level 3: 20% increase
    In the room with the moving platforms, there is an alcove above the first
    platform. The Dog is next to the fountain containing Coin 24. If you mainly use
    your scythe to fight enemies, this relic can help to increase the damage you
    inflict on the enemies. If you plan on equipping this relic for a fight, you
    will probably also want to have Death Blade equipped to inflict even more
    damage. 
    
    Name: Frederick's Ring
    Location: Heresy
    Requirements: Holy Level 5
    Description: When Dante is low on Health, there is a chance to execute Divine
    Intervention, which both stuns enemies and heals Dante
    Level 1: 10% chance
    Level 2: 20% chance
    Level 3: 30% chance
    Right before the end, before you enter the room with all the stalactites, there
    will be a bone ladder at the back end of the ledge. Drop down the ladder and
    the Dog will be next to Coin 25. This relic isn't very useful by the time you
    are able to equip it. At Holy Level 5, you are able to purchase Divine Armor
    Level 3, and if you have already purchased Divine Armor and Divine Armor Level
    2, either of those will replenish more health than this relic, if it activates
    
    Name: Shoe of Nessus
    Location: Violence
    Requirements: Unholy Level 5
    Description: All of Dante's light Scythe attacks can no longer be evaded by
    enemies
    Level 1: Relic is in use
    While scaling the ropes when you first enter Violence, drop down to the second
    rope and shimmy all the way across to a ledge at the far end of the canyon. The
    Demon Dog is on the ledge with Coin 26 and the soul of Atilla. This relic is
    very helpful, especially when fighting against Seductresses and Temptresses.
    Using this relic, enemies can still block light attacks, if they can, but if
    they can't or don't, they will take damage
    
    Name: Attila's Armor
    Location: Violence
    Requirements: None
    Description: Dante's attacks will not be interrupted if an enemy blocks them
    Level 1: Relic is in use
    When you reach the second ship with the furnace shooting flames across the
    deck, scale the climbable wall along the left side, and you will go inside the
    ship. The Demon Dog will be on a ledge at the end of the wall. Using this relic
    along side of Shoe of Nessus can make light Scythe attacks unblockable, leaving
    enemies defenseless against them. Having Francesca's Book equipped at the same
    time can also add Unholy Experience quickly
    
    Name: Memory of Acre
    Location: Violence
    Requirements: Holy Level 5
    Description: Dante can no longer be interrupted while executing Cross attacks. 
    Level 1: Relic is in use
    After your first encounter with the Damned Crusaders, after finding the last of
    the coins, there will be a ledge on the right and another to the left of it.
    Jump up to the ledge on the right and then to the one on the left. The Dog will
    be on the left ledge. If you are going to use this relic, you should also equip
    Lord's Blessing to do more damage. If an enemy gets up close to you, start
    using a Cross attack to knock them away and deal a little extra damage
    
    Name: Francesco's Forgiveness
    Location: Violence
    Requirements: None
    Description: Dante is protected from all enemy damage
    Level 1: 5% damage protection
    Level 2: 10% damage protection
    Level 3: 15% damage protection
    You will receive this relic after you defeat Francesco. After obtaining this
    relic, you will want to equip it and leave it equipped. Once you reach Level 3,
    this relic will be very useful, especially if you are playing on Hellish or
    Infernal
    
    Name: Stone of Wrath
    Location: Dark Forest
    Requirements: None
    Description: Reduces the cost of all magic spells
    Level 1: 10% less Mana
    Level 2: 15% less Mana
    Level 3: 20% less Mana
    When you play the Dark Forest prequel level, you will automatically have this
    relic to begin. If you want to level up this relic, you will have to do it in
    the normal game because you don't gain any souls in the Dark Forest. If you use
    magic regularly, you will want to use this relic alongside Ciacco's Bile. You
    may not notice the lowered cost of most spells, but it will be rather
    significant for Divine Armor Level 3. Plus with the cost lowered, Ciacco's Bile
    can refill the Mana bar quicker
    
    =============
    DI5. Upgrades
    =============
    As you play through, you will receive souls for killing enemies, opening
    fountains, and defeating the bosses. You will need souls to purchase upgrades
    to increase Dante's abilities. Upgrades are spilt into Holy Upgrades and Unholy
    Upgrades. Holy Upgrades focus mainly on Cross attacks and Unholy Upgrades focus
    on scythe attacks. Once you reach certain Experience plateaus, you Holy and
    Unholy levels will increase. The Experience you will need to obtain to level up
    is the same for each path, so you won't have to earn more Experience in one
    path than the other to reach the same level. The Experience amounts listed to
    level up paths are NOT totals. Each time you level up a path, the soul counter
    to reach the next level is reset to 0, but you will keep any souls over the
    amount needed to reach the level you reached. You will need to level up Holy
    and Unholy levels to equip certain relics. To earn Experience, you will need to
    punish or absolve enemies and Damned souls. Some of the enemies that can be
    absolved or punished include most Minion variations, Unbaptized Babies, Demons,
    and Gluttons. To judge them, you will have to weaken them enough and R2 or the
    Right trigger will appear above them. Then follow the on-screen commands to
    finish the judgment. For Minions and Babies, you can grab them and then you
    will be asked how you want to judge them. Absolving or punishing the Damned
    souls will yield about twice as much Experience as killing the normal enemies.
    Abilities for both paths will be listed by level, from the left side to the
    right. Any upgrades that are connected vertically means you have to purchase
    the lower abilities before you can purchase the higher abilities. Any upgrades
    connected horizontally means you still need to purchase the ability on the left
    first. The table below shows how the abilities progress. The numbers are in no
    specific order except that any ability listed as U1/H1 pertains to the ability
    on the left side
    
    
            Unholy Upgrades                 |                   Holy Upgrades

    ====================
    DI6. Dante's Journal
    ====================
    As you progress through the Circles of Hell, Dante will keep track of many
    things using his Journal. Using Dante's Journal will give you a little history
    behind the creatures and the Damned. After absolving or punishing the Damned,
    Dante will record the text that was in the little box below the name of the
    Damned before you choose your judgment. You can also learn about the creatures
    you face in Hell. After killing a creature, information on it will be added to
    the Journal. You will also add commentaries from Virgil every now and again
    after talking to him. The Damned, Bestiary, and Virgil commentaries are kept in
    order, and if you miss one, the space will be Locked until you find it. It is
    impossible to miss an entry in the Bestiary. When you start a new game in
    Resurrection Mode, all entries for the Damned and Virgil Commentaries will be
    reset, so you will have to find them again
    
    ================
    DI6A. The Damned
    ================
    The Damned are 27 souls who played an important part in the history of the
    world. When you come across one in Hell, they will appear as kneeling body that
    has a glowing light around them. When you interact with them by pressing R1,
    you can choose to either absolve them or punish them. If you choose to punish
    them, all you have to do is hit Square and Dante will take care of the rest. If
    you choose to absolve them, you will play a mini-game using the face buttons.
    You will have 40 seconds to collect as many sins as you can. To collect a sin,
    hit the correct face button when the sin passes over it. If you hit the button
    of to late, you will lose a sin. After time is up, you will gain 30 souls for
    every sin you collected. Regardless of whether you punish or absolve them, you
    will earn about 600 Experience points for whichever judgment you chose. After
    you collect 3 Beatrice Stones, you can auto-absolve the Damned. If you
    auto-absolve, you will not have to play the mini-game, but you will not gain
    any bonus souls. To find the Damned in the guide, just search for their name
    
    1. Pontius Pilate
    Location: Shores of Acheron
    Judge at the Trial of Jesus who deceived the Pharisees into allowing Jesus to
    die. His cowardice contributed to the suffering of one for the sins of many,
    and now he bears the weight of all in Limbo
    
    Even though his Journal entry says Limbo, he is found early in the Shores of
    Acheron, before boarding Charon. After killing off your first Guardian Demon,
    you will have to rotate the crank to raise the platform to a door. Open the
    door and continue down the path, past Virgil, until you come to a Demon Door.
    Pilate will be right in front of the door
    
    2. Orpheus
    Location: Shores of Acheron
    Greek poet and musician who failed to deliver his beloved from the underworld.
    Denounced for attempting to impede the fulfillment of God's will, he suffers in
    the dark abyss of woe.
    
    You will find Orpheus in the first room you enter after boarding Charon. When
    you enter the room, pull the crate over to the right side of the room and stick
    in an alcove so you can move the platform. After you have moved the platform,
    put there crate in front of the platform and move the platform back. You will
    have to do this to proceed anyways, so it is hard to miss Orpheus
    
    3. Electra
    Location: Limbo
    Killed her mother to avenge her father's wrongful death. She suffers her
    punishment, which is to know finally the wrath of God
    
    After your first encounter with the Unbaptized Babies, open the Demon Door to
    continue on. As you follow the long path around, you will see another Demon
    Door on your left. Open the Demon door and you will find enter a room with a
    couple fountains and yet another Demon Door. There will also be a spiked wheel
    rolling up and down the ramp that can hurt you while trying to open the door,
    so timing is required. Open the Demon Door and you will see Electra at the end
    of the path. 
    
    4. Francesca da Polenta
    Location: Lust
    She fell in love with Paolo, the younger brother of her old and deformed
    husband. When the husband discovered her adultery, he had the lovers killed.
    
    After making your way through Limbo, you will have to climb down a gigantic
    wall into the next circle, which is Lust. Once you finally make it to the
    bottom of the wall and see a giant bridge with statues, Francesca will be right
    before the bridge. Absolve her and Paolo to earn the "Forbidden Love" Trophy.
    
    5. Paolo Malatesta
    Location: Lust
    He committed adultery with Francesca, the wife of his brother. He too spends
    eternity yearning for his beloved, enveloped in the tumultuous winds of lust
    
    You will find Paolo about two-thirds of the way through Lust. As you make your
    up the tower on the platform, Cleopatra will fight you. After you make her
    begin climbing again, the platform will continue up. After you kill off the
    enemies, the elevator will stop at the top. Go to the right and climb down to
    find Paolo. Absolve him and Francesca to earn the "Forbidden Love" Trophy.
    
    6. Semiramis
    Location: Lust
    The legendary Queen of Assyria was so given to lust, she made legal those
    sensual vices of which she was often accused. Now she suffers for her desires
    
    You will find Semiramis almost right before your fight with Marc Antony. As you
    make your way along the wall that also shoots lightning, you will reach a ledge
    with a Beatrice Statue. On the right side of this ledge is the Damned soul of
    Semiramis.
    
    7. Ciacco
    Location: Gluttony
    Anonymous citizen of Florence who spent his life gorging his appetites, and now
    spends eternity in the muddy depths of the third circle of Hell.
    
    After defeating Cerberus, continue down the path, killing the Gorger Worm you

    27. Count Ugolino
    Location: Treachery
    Count Ugolino was an Italian nobleman and politician whose life was sewn
    together only by the fibers of treachery. Always pitting one man against
    another as blood spilled, he thought of no other than himself. 
    
    After crossing the gigantic ice bridge, there will be a Beatrice Statue on the
    left at the end of the bridge. The Count's soul will be near the Statue. If you
    found all other souls up to this point, you will receive "The Damned" Reward
    when you judge the Count
    
    ==============
    DI6B. Bestiary
    ==============
    Information on every creature that you fight will be kept in the Journal, but
    it will only be added after killing at least one of them (or killing them in
    the case of one-fight enemies). Some enemies can be absolved or punished, but
    some can't. If it says "Yes" for judgment, they can be judged and the amount of
    base experience will be in parenthesis. Almost all of the small enemies can and
    to do this, you need to grab them with your scythe. You will then be able to
    select your judgment. If you choose to punish, hit square and Dante will
    destroy them. To absolve, you will have to rapidly hit the O button until they
    are destroyed. For the bigger enemies, you will have to follow the on-screen
    prompts, as they will change from enemy to enemy and some even have more then
    one absolve animation. 
    
    1. Death
    First Encounter: Acre (Only encounter)
    Judgment: No
    All are destined to face the ominous specter of Death. When the time arrives,
    the harvester of souls severs the tie that binds body and spirit, and ushers
    the newly departed into the next realm.
    
    Death will appear to fight you in Acre after you have been killed. He has three
    main attacks. His first is close attack where he will quickly slash at you.
    This can easily be blocked. His second is a ranged attack where he will swing
    his scythe around in a circle, releasing a shockwave in all direction. You can
    jump to avoid this. His final attack he will not get until late in the fight.
    It is another close attack where he will use the scythe to quickly stab at you
    a few times. This attack can also be blocked
    
    2. Undead Minion
    First Encounter: Florence
    Judgment: Yes (+10 Experience)
    Once living humans, these wretched souls now reside in the depths of Hell. A
    great power has commanded them to leave the abyss for the Earth's surface.
    
    You will first encounter these enemies in the graveyard after returning home to
    Florence. These enemies are pretty frail and a few hits will kill them. You can
    also pass judgment on these creatures by grabbing them with the scythe. Passing
    judgment will add 10 Experience points to whichever path you judged. 
    
    3. Pest
    First Encounter: Florence
    Judgment: No
    Swarms of these foul beasts can be found throughout the nine circles, wreaking
    havoc and destruction. In greater numbers, they are even capable of blotting
    out the sky.
    
    Like the entry says, these creatures are everywhere. They are weak and a few
    hits should kill them. Their only attack is a ranged attack where they will
    hurl a tiny fireball at you. After buying the Retribution Upgrade, you can
    deflect their attack back at them, which will kill them
    
    4. Fire Minion
    First Encounter: Florence
    Judgment: No
    These fiends are forged from the sweltering fire of the middle circles. Only
    the light of the cross can snuff out their infernal armor.
    
    You will first come across these enemies in the basement of the church in
    Florence, when burning columns black your path. To kill these Minions, you must
    first hit them with a Holy Cross attack. Once you do this, they will harden
    temporarily, allowing you to hit them with your scythe. It will only take one
    hit to kill them after hitting them with the Holy Cross attack. If you fight
    any of these creatures while there is a Heretic in the fight, you can put out
    their flames by using a Holy Spell as well. 
    
    5. Asterian Beast
    First Encounter: Gates of Hell
    Judgment: Unable to be killed
    Tamed long ago by the Fallen, these mindless creatures serve as beasts of
    burden. Steered by their masters, they labor away, ensuring everlasting pain
    and suffering throughout the Inferno
    
    You will first encounter this creature after meeting Virgil for the first time.
    These gigantic creatures are controlled by Beast Tamers and cannot be killed.
    These Beasts have two main attacks. One is stomp attack and for the other, it
    will slam the ground. Due to the Beasts size, the range for these attacks is
    pretty much right in front of the creature. Once you do enough damage, an R2
    icon will appear. Hit Square, Triangle, and then O when they appear on screen
    and you will kill the Tamer and take control of the Beast. Once you take
    control of a Beast, you will usually have to use it for tasks that Dante
    wouldn't be able to do. Moving and attacking with the beast is pretty much the
    same as the controls for Dante. To attack with the Beast, press Square to slam
    the ground and press Triangle to stomp. You also can press the O button and the
    Beast will breathe fire (The Beast will never use this attack when controlled
    by a Beast Tamer). You can also grab enemies by pressing R2. 
    
    6. Hell Minion
    First Encounter: Shores of Acheron
    Judgment: Yes (+10 Experience)
    Within Hell these soldiers pursue fight with the relentlessness of a starving
    bound. They are governed by the Ruling Class of Hell
    
    These Minions are relatively weak. You can grab them with the scythe and
    absolve them or punish them for 10 experience points. These Minions will be a
    common enemy from the Shores of Acheron until you reach Gluttony. 
    
    7. Guardian Demon
    First Encounter: Shores of Acheron
    Judgment: Yes (+100 Experience)
    The third choir of fallen angels, these elite soldiers of Hell's Arm oversee
    the punishment of the damned.
    
    The creatures are stronger than most of the other creatures you meet early in
    the game, but not as strong as the bosses. Unlike most other creatures, they
    will use their sword to block your scythe attacks. They have two main attacks.
    The first one they just try and attack you. For their second attack, there
    sword will begin to glow orange and they will slash at you. You will not be
    able to block this attack without having the Filippo's Rage relic (Which you
    will not find until the beginning of Lust). Once these Demons have lost enough
    health, and R2 icon will appear above them and you can judge them. You will
    earn 100 Experience points for your judgment.
    
    8. Charon
    First Encounter: Shores of Acheron (Only encounter)
    Judgment: No
    Those souls condemned to suffer the eternal fire must take passage aboard the
    ancient boatman's vessel. He ferries them across the River Acheron where the
    will be judged for their grievous sins.
    
    Charon really isn't much of a boss; he is more like an important enemy. You
    don't really fight Charon, but you will have to fight off other creatures
    before he is defeated. After killing off a bunch of creatures previously
    listed, he will turn his head and an Asterian Beast with a Beast Tamer will
    appear. Once you take control of the Beast and kill any enemies that spawn, a
    glowing orb will appear on his neck. Walk over to it, press R1 and quickly hit
    circle to rip his head off. The boat will then crash and you will have to
    escape using the Beast. His head appears later on in Limbo where you can earn a
    Trophy
    
    9. Exploding Minion
    First Encounter: Limbo
    Judgment: No
    Their frail bodies are unable to contain the intolerable rage that burns inside
    them. Their anger burns so hot, it lights to fire, culminating in a sudden
    burst of fury.
    
    These creatures are incredibly weak. If you grab them with the scythe, you will
    automatically throw them and they will explode on contact, hence the name.
    Other than that, there isn't much else that these Minions do
    
    10. Unbaptized Child
    First Encounter: Limbo
    Judgment: Yes (+10 Experience)
    Unbaptized children who were not shown the portal of faith before they died.
    Without the ability to understand their fate they lash out violently against
    anyone they cross. 
    
    These creatures are pretty much exactly like the Hell Minions. Grab them with
    your scythe to judge them. If you just want to hack and slash at them, it
    shouldn't take too long to kill them.
    
    11. King Minos
    First Encounter: Limbo (Only encounter)
    Judgment: No
    The tyrannical judge of the underworld site before the entrance to the second
    circle, assessing the sins of the damned before sentencing them to their
    eternal place in Hell.
    
    When you first encounter King Minos, you find out that he is more or less blind
    and smells those that he judges, including you. He has a couple of attacks. The
    first one, he will use his tentacles to try and hit you by making them come up
    from the ground. Just run around in circles and he most likely won't hit you.
    Whenever he leans back, he will reveal grapple points on either side of the
    arena. Grapple with your scythe as he will roar and try to blow you over. You
    will then be able to attack his face. Be careful because he will use his tongue
    to try and hit you. If he succeeds, you will be separated from your scythe and
    will have to avoid a sharp tentacle to grab your scythe. He will also slam his
    fist and sweep his arm across the arena, but if you stand underneath the
    tentacles that hide the grapple points, you won't get hit by the slams or
    sweeps. When you kill him, you will grab his tongue, pull him over to the wheel
    that sends the souls to wherever he has sent them, and then you will activate
    the wheel and keep trying to make it move until it slices his face in half.
    
    12. Temptress of Lust
    First Encounter: Lust
    Judgment: No
    The feverish winds of the second circle have maddened and disfigured these
    creatures. Their lasciviousness has become an insatiable desire; one only
    pacified by feasting on the blood of fornicators.
    
    These creatures are really creepy. Their first attack is a close attack where
    they slash at you a few times. The second attack is a ranged attack and is what
    makes them creepy. They will grow a scorpion-like tail from their lower body
    and attack you with it. Also, these creatures are incredibly fast. They will
    try and evade most of your attacks. You will not be able to grab them with the
    scythe; they will just jump out of the way and probably counterattack. When you
    face these creatures in the Dark Forest, they will look like something out of
    Assassin's Creed. They will not use their main ranged attack with the tentacle,
    but they will use the stun attack that the Seductresses know. 
    
    13. Cleopatra
    First Encounter: Lust (Only encounter)
    Judgment: No
    The only thing more compelling than her beauty was her lust for power. The
    Queen of the Nile is granted reign over the second circle, tormenting those who
    were unable to overcome their lewd desires. 
    
    You will have to deal with Cleopatra a couple times while you are making your
    way through Lust. First, as you are traveling up the tower, she will break
    through and you will have to fight her to get her to move farther up. She will
    create 3 Unbaptized Babies at a time from one of her breasts, so this will help
    you to get the "Bad Nanny" Trophy if you haven't gotten it by this point. You
    will have to play with the levers until you burn her breasts. The next time you
    will meet up with her is during your fight with Marc Antony. She will intervene
    and heal Antony at random points during the battle. After you kill, Antony, she
    will shrink and try to kill you for killing Antony. You will have to follow the
    on-screen prompts to kill her.
    
    14. Marc Antony
    First Encounter: Lust (Only encounter)
    Judgment: No
    The mighty Roman general who watches over the realm of his final lover. His
    reputation as a formidable military leader is only overshadowed by the stories
    of his vile and lecherous conduct. 
    
    For being early in the game when you face Antony, he is probably the toughest
    challenge you will have for a while. He has a plethora of attacks; some are
    close, and some are ranged. Whenever Antony has his shield up, the damage he
    takes from your Holy Cross attacks and some scythe attacks will be greatly
    reduced. A couple times during your fight, Cleopatra will heal Antony. To stop
    her, just attack her hand until she falls down the tower. 
    
    15. Cerberus
    First Encounter: Gluttony (Only encounter)
    Judgment: No
    This three-headed monster stands before the third circle, rending and flaying
    the sinners condemned to its post. No soul may pass without confronting the
    beast.
    
    Cerberus only has two attacks. The first one is a ranged attack where any head,
    sometimes more than one at a time, will shoot vomit balls in your general
    direction. Just jump out of the way to avoid them. It will only use its second
    attack when you try to open the fire fountains and one of the side heads will
    lunge at you. As long as there is one side head, the center head will never
    lunge. Once both side heads have been sliced off, the center head will begin
    shooting vomit faster and will lunge at you if you try and open one of the
    vents. Once the center head has been burned twice and R2 appears above it, go
    over to it and press R2. The head will attempt to eat you, but you only have to
    move the left analog stick in the four main directions when prompted to destroy
    it.
    
    16. Gorger Worm
    First Encounter: Gluttony
    Judgment: No
    This horrid creature has burrowed beneath the surface. Patiently, it waits for
    unsuspecting souls to wander by before snatching them up it its massive,
    crushing jaws.
    
    The Gorger Worms will usually hide underground. When you pass over where one is
    hiding, it will instantly snatch you up and attempt to eat you. Press O quickly
    to escape. You will be able to see where they are hiding because dirt will come
    up out of the ground around where they are hiding. To make them come up without
    passing over them, get close enough to the spot so that you can hold Triangle
    to slam your scythe into the ground, forcing them out. 
    
    17. Gluttony Minion
    First Encounter: Gluttony
    Judgment: Yes (+10 Experience)
    Full of muck and filth, these bloated miscreants leave a mess of nauseating
    waste in their wake
    
    Compared to the other Minions, Gluttony Minions have sort of a special ability.
    If you kill them using scythe attacks, there is a chance that they will
    explode. You can still grab them and pass judgment or Holy Cross to keep them
    from exploding
    
    18. Glutton
    First Encounter: Gluttony
    Judgment: Yes (+200 Experience)
    Driven by a voracious and indiscriminate appetite, this lumbering giant wanders
    the circles of Hell devouring everything in its path. Nothing satisfies its
    unyielding hunger.
    
    You will first encounter this creature in the mirror maze after watching how
    Beatrice and you father were killed. Due to this it's massive size, your Holy
    Cross attacks won't do much damage to this creature. One attack they use is a
    ranged attack where they pretty much throw up. For being a ranged attack, it
    doesn't really have much range. The only other thing they do that could be
    considered an attack is when they run towards you to try and grab you and eat
    you. After knocking enough health off of these big creatures, R2 should appear
    above it. 
    
    19. Hoarder-Waster
    First Encounter: Greed
    Judgment: No
    While one hoarded his wealth, the other squandered it. Both obsessed with the
    material world, they must now walk eternity together, their bodies fused yet
    torn asunder
    
    Hoarder-Wasters are rather annoying enemies. I noticed that shortly after being
    hit by Holy Cross attacks, they usually began spinning around. They use their
    giant club to extend the range of their spin. While they are spinning, they
    tend to spin aimlessly and will deal damage to anything in their path,
    including other enemies. While they are spinning they are immune to most
    attacks. To stop them from spinning, you can either wait for them to stop on
    their own, when they stop for a few seconds and take a breather, or you can use
    Righteous Path to stop them and deal a little damage
    
    20. Greed Minion
    First Encounter: Greed
    Judgment: Yes (+10 Experience)
    Possessed by an insufferable greed, these creatures blindly pursue anything
    that glitters with a kind of ferocity unmatched by their accursed brethren
    
    Greed Minions are the most annoying of the Minions. They are the strongest of
    them all, as well. Greed Minions are also incredibly evasive. Most of the time
    you are fighting them, they will jump around the arena. Before they attack,
    they will raise their sword above their head and jump at Dante
    
    21. Throne Demon
    First Encounter: Greed
    Judgment: Yes (+200 Experience)
    The second choir of fallen angels, these are the sergeants of Hell's army.
    Found deeper within Hell, they keep the order.
    
    Throne Demons are more powerful than Guardian Demons, but use some of the same
    attacks. They will swing at you a few times with their axe if you get to close.
    They can also use their shield to block your attacks. When they are about to
    use their ranged attack, they will lean back with one side of the axe on the
    ground. They will then swing the axe and send a fireball in your general
    direction. They have another attack which goes from ranged to close combat.
    They will lower their head and charge at you. When they get close, they will
    swing their axe, and it will do a little extra damage if the attack connects
    
    22. Seductress of Lust
    First Encounter: Greed
    Judgment: No
    Despite their pale and putrid visage, these wanton wretches are capable of
    rousing the most carnal of passions in their victims. Only the truly chaste are
    able to resist their allure
    
    Seductresses of Lust are basically stronger version of Temptresses. They are
    very evasive and use the same attacks. They have a second ranged attack. They
    will release a purple orb of energy in Dante's general direction. If it hits,
    Dante will become dazed and begin to slowly walk towards the Seductress. To
    break free, you will have to hit the O (PS3) or B (X360) button. Dante will
    also snap back to reality if he is attacked by another enemy. If you have the
    Shoe of Nessus relic, you will want to equip it whenever these enemies are
    present
    
    23. Beast Tamer
    First Encounter: Florence
    Judgment: No
    These demons rule over the beasts of Hell, taming them to their bidding and
    inflicting torture among Hell's residents.
    
    Up until Greed, you will only encounter Beast Tamer's while they are in control
    of an Asterian Beast. However, from Greed on, if you are riding on a Beast, a
    Beast Tamer can appear and try to take control of the Beast from Dante. When
    they try, hit the O (PS3) or B (X360) button to throw them off and keep control
    of the Beast. When you throw them off, it will always be directly in front of
    the Beast, so to kill them, just breathe fire. Like their info suggests, they
    are Demons and count toward the "Demon Slayer" Reward.
    
    24. Alighiero
    First Encounter: Greed (Only encounter)
    Judgment: No
    Wholly unconcerned with the suffering of those around him, Dante's father led a
    life of excess and greed. He spent his life hoarding his wealth, cheating those
    less fortunate, and abusing his family
    
    Dear old dad has a few attacks at his disposal, gaining a new one each time the
    arena gets smaller. He will swing his cross at you and use Sins of the Father
    when the fight first begins. After the arena loses it outer ring the first
    time, he will now slam his cross into the ground. The cross in the ground will
    emit a short-wave energy ring. When he uses Sins of the Father, he will send
    out two crosses. When the arena loses its outer ring the second time, he will
    gain a very powerful attack and Sins of the Father will attack with 3 crosses.
    He will raise his cross above his head and then an explosion will occur. If you
    close enough to him, it will take out a huge chunk of health. 
    
    25. Fire Guardian
    First Encounter: Anger
    Judgment: No
    Springing suddenly from the darkness, these wily beings lash out with fire and
    flame before returning to their shadowy forms.
    
    Fire Guardians are stronger than the Fire Minions. When they move around the
    arena, they appear as a cloud or dark smoke. While they are in this form, they
    can't attack or be harmed. To defeat them, you need to wait until they turn
    into their fire form. Then use any Holy Cross attack or Holy Spell to put out
    their flames. Once their flames are out, quickly attack them before they
    reignite, because it won't take long for that to happen
    
    26. Phlegyas
    First Encounter: Anger (Only encounter)
    Judgment: No
    In a fit of unholy rage, the mighty Phlegyas set fire to the Temple of Delphi.
    For his insolence against the divine, the King of the Lapiths is forever
    condemned to ferry souls across the River Styx
    
    When you fight Phlegyas, you won't actually fight him, you only have to avoid
    his attacks. As you fight off the enemies that appear, he will slam the ground
    and breathe fire across the arena, but he won't use the fire attack until you
    reach the last area. After you watch Beatrice's transformation, you will use
    Phlegyas to enter the City of Dis. While riding Phlegyas, the attacks he can
    use follow the same button set-up as the Asterian Beasts. When you use his fire
    attack, you can hold down the O button (PS3) or B button (X360) and use the
    left analog stick to aim the fire
    
    27. Heretic
    First Encounter: Heresy
    Judgment: No
    In life they were the worst of heretics, pagans who sometimes practiced the
    dark arts. Within Hell they have been utilized by the Ruling Class as guardians
    and protectors of Hell
    
    Whenever you encounter a Heretic, all enemies in the fight with it will have a
    purple orb above them. As long as the Heretic remains in the fight, all enemies
    are protected from Holy Cross attacks. Heretics will warp from point to point
    in the arena, making them harder to fight. They will use lightning as their
    main attack against Dante. They will also launch a projectile attack, as well.
    When they get knocked down, they will throw their staff to knock Dante away
    while they get up. 
    
    28. Fiend
    First Encounter: Heresy
    Judgment: No
    These pests were twisted by Hell's minions into flying instruments of capture.
    They patrol the rings of the underworld, trapping wayward shades attempting to
    flee their eternal abode. 
    
    Fiends are just like Pests, except their attacks can't be blocked. Instead of
    using fire, Fiends use ice as their attack. Their attack can freeze Dante for a
    short period. You can get out by rapidly hitting the O button (PS3) or B button
    (X360)
    
    29. Pagan 
    First Encounter: Heresy
    Judgment: No
    These priests once practiced the forbidden dark arts. They have been granted
    the powers they desperately sought in life and are forced into Hell's service,
    acting as keepers of the flaming tombs
    
    The Pagan's fighting style is similar to that of the Heretic. However, Pagans
    aren't able to protect all enemies from Holy Cross attacks. They will still use
    projectile attacks and use their staff to knock Dante away when they are down.
    They will teleport around the arena, making them harder to take down
    
    30. Arch Demon
    First Encounter: Violence
    Judgment: Yes (+200 Experience)
    The first, and highest ranking, choir of fallen angels. Arch Demons are the
    lieutenants of Hell's army and are among to original fallen
    
    Arch Demons are the most powerful of the Demons. Unlike the other Demons, Arch
    Demons have the ability to fly, and they will use their wings as a shield. They
    use two swords to attack Dante. While they fly, they can throw their swords,
    slam straight into the ground, and they can also freeze Dante. You can break
    out the same way you would from the Fiend's attack. Once you they reach about
    50% health, R2 will appear over them and Dante will cut off their wings. The
    next time R2 appears over them, you can judge them
    
    31. Damned Crusader
    First Encounter: Violence
    Judgment: No
    Promised salvation for their sacrifice, these warriors followed Dante only to
    be led astray. They rise again, seeking vengeance against the soul responsible
    for their damnation
    
    These enemies are very defensive. They will usually raise their shields
    whenever Dante attacks them. If you hammer away at them enough, you can break
    their shields, pretty much eliminating any defense they may have had. You can
    also use Divine Force or Divine Tempest to launch them into the air, where they
    are open to any attack
    
    32. Francesco
    First Encounter: Violence (Only encounter)
    Judgment: No
    The brother of Beatrice left Florence with noble intent, only to be misled by
    his closest ally. Although Dante promised to protect his friend, he stood
    silent as Francesco was condemned to death
    
    As long as Francesco has his shield, he won't take much damage. He doesn't have
    very many attacks at his disposal. His main attack will be a few close range
    slashes. To break his shield, you will have to wait until Francesco grabs a
    sword out of his back and throws it at you. As long as you aren't close to the
    edge, the sword will get stuck in the ground, unless it hits you and breaks.
    His thrown sword is unblockable, so you will have to dodge the sword when he
    throws it. Interact with the sword to throw it back at him and after a few
    returned swords, his shield will break, allowing him to be hit for real damage.
    When he regenerates his shield, he will summon some Damned Captains to help him
    
    33. Damned Captain
    First Encounter: Violence
    Judgment: No
    For the boldest and closest of his allies, Dante's betrayal stung the deepest.
    Forever doomed to walk the Abominable Sands, these warriors are now the most
    fervent in his pursuit
    
    Damned Captains aren't much different from the Damned Crusaders. The main
    noticeable difference between the two is that the Captains shield is engulfed
    in flames. When their shields are on fire, scythe attacks will have no effect
    on them. 
    
    34. Malacoda
    First Encounter: Fraud
    Judgment: Yes (+200 Experience)
    The fiery and elusive master of the Malebolge, guardians of the eighth circle.
    These demonic wardens allow no soul entry or escape lest it be ordained by on
    high
    
    Physically, Malacoda look like Throne Demons on fire. Usually, there will never
    be more than one of these creatures in a fight at a time. Unlike the other fire
    creatures, these creatures can be attacked with the scythe. You can still
    hammer away at them using Holy Cross attacks. When they are weak enough, you
    will be able to judge them.
    
    35. Lucifer
    First Encounter: Treachery (Only encounter)
    Judgment: No
    Cast down for his rebellion against God, the Lord of the Inferno lies
    imprisoned within a frozen pool of malice and sorrow. It is here he conspires
    to overthrow Paradise and reclaim his former glory.
    
    When the fight begins, Lucifer will be gigantic. While he is in this form, you
    have to wait until a light shines in the center of the arena before you can
    damage him. When you are able to hurt him in this form, Holy Cross attacks are
    the most effective. When he changes form and becomes smaller, scythe attacks
    work better here. Don't use Holy Cross attacks because he can and will block
    them and return the attack to you. When this happens, it will look like an
    explosion took place. After he gets weak enough, the circles at the end of each
    star point will rise up. Use the scythe to swing from platform and then grab
    onto Lucifer. He will fly up and you will have to hit the buttons to make him
    crash back down to the arena. 
    
    =========================
    DI6C. Virgil Commentaries
    =========================
    As you progress through the Nine Circles, you will meet Virgil, who has been
    sent by Beatrice to keep Dante safe and guide you through the circles. Talking
    with him will add commentaries to your Journal, which tell you about where you
    are or how the souls get sentenced there. Virgil will also give you relics
    along the way to help you save Beatrice. Virgil will always appear on the main
    path, so you won't have open side doors to find him. The locations listed are
    according to the guide
    
    1. Into the Blind World
    Location: Florence
    Into the blind world we have now descended. Put all fear and cowardice aside.
    We have come to the cliffs above Acheron. Wretched souls walk this tortured
    path to board Charon's vessel.
    
    After dropping down the giant door that you opened using the Asterian Beast,
    climb all the way along the wall. Once you finally reach the end, you will see
    Virgil. He will also give you the Death Blade relic by talking to him twice.
    This will be right before you enter the Shores of Acheron
    
    2. Shores of Acheron
    Location: Shores of Acheron
    All souls that die from every nation collect here as one. Charon's rough
    crossing awaits those who did not fear the Lord.
    
    After you kill your first Guardian Demon, you will have to raise the platform
    to a door and open it. When you open it, you will see Virgil ahead of you.
    
    3. Limbo
    Location: Limbo
    Beyond Limbo is the fallen King Minos, judge of the damned. But for those who
    remain in Limbo, the rest shall be sentenced to the circles below
    
    After using the Asterian Beast to escape Charon's headless vessel, you will run
    from crumbling platforms and break through a weak wall. Once you land, you will
    see a Beatrice Statue and Virgil
    
    4. Unblessed Infants
    Location: Limbo
    The unblessed infants, Baptism they did not have. The one gate to the true
    faith was never shown to these newborn souls. Limbo shows no mercy for these
    babes
    
    After your first encounter with the Unbaptized Babies, open the Demon Door in
    the room after you have killed all of them. Follow the path and you will see
    Virgil next to another Demon Door
    
    5. Hall of Kings
    Location: Limbo
    In this place reside honored names which resound in your life above. These
    Pagan souls marked with great authority have won a measure of grace from
    heaven. Though denied paradise, they dwell distinguished from the manner of the
    rest.
    
    As you make your way through Limbo, you will eventually reach a room with a
    bunch of huge statues in it. Virgil will be in one of the corners on the right.
    Because of the rather obscure location, it is possible to miss this commentary
    
    6. Winds of Lust
    Location: Lust
    The winds of Lust smite these damned. No hope of less pain, no hope of rest,
    ever comforts them.
    
    After entering Lust, make your way to the opposite end of the bridge at the
    beginning. Virgil is on the left side of the bridge, near the vortex
    
    7. Semiramis
    Location: Lust
    Among those here is Semiramis, queen of Assyria, empress of many tongues. Her
    passion ruled her and her kingdom.
    
    After you first encounter the Temptresses of Lust, open the snake's mouth using
    the crank in the room and destroy the fangs. Re-open the snake's mouth and jump
    up to find Virgil
    
    8. Helen
    Location: Lust
    In this circle is the once beautiful Helen, around whom so many years of war
    and suffering revolved
    
    After defeating Marc Antony and the tower collapses, you will have to swing
    from the statues at the beginning of Lust. When you reach the other side of the
    bridge, Virgil will be waiting
    
    9. Gluttony
    Location: Gluttony
    For the ruinous fault of Gluttony, so are these sad souls broken by the rain
    and the mud
    
    After scaling the wall down from Lust, you will see Virgil next to a Beatrice
    Statue, right before you drop down to fight Cerberus
    
    10. Valley of Mud
    Location: Gluttony
    What these shades could not satisfy in life, in death they shall be denied for
    eternity
    
    As you make your way through Gluttony, you will pass through a mouth and have
    to make your way through another one. You will enter the room that leads to the
    Mirror Maze. Virgil will be waiting when you first enter
    
    11. Greed
    Location: Greed
    For the crime of Greed do these souls suffer. Those clerks asquint of mind made
    no measured spending in life. And by contrast, in these Popes and Cardinals,
    greed practiced its excess.
    
    After entering Greed, you will eventually watch a cut scene where you first see
    your father, Alighiero. Shortly after this, you will see Virgil
    
    12. Earth's Treasure
    Location: Greed
    All the Earth's treasure that is beneath the Moon, or ever was, connot give
    relief to these weary souls. What a mockery is made of the brief battle for
    possessions that makes so short a life.
    
    After using the Asterian Beast to open the wall to the room with the saw
    blades, open the door at the other end. Virgil will be in front of some prison
    cells, where you find the Coin of Plutus relic and Coin 16
    
    13. Plutus
    Location: Greed
    Let not Plutus, the God of Wealth, hinder your passage, whatever power the
    accursed wolf may have.
    
    After using the fire-breathing statue to proceed, you will come to a lift.
    After riding it to the end, follow the path to find Virgil at the end of it. 
    
    14. The Wheel of Fortune
    Location: Greed
    The Wheel of Fortune. He who made the Heavens named a Guide, who transfers vain
    goods from one blood to another.
    
    After getting the "Plutus" commentary, you will have to fight off a bunch of
    enemies then use the statue to proceed. After opening the Demon Door, you will
    see Virgil ahead of you. 
    
    15. Anger
    Location: Anger
    See the souls over whom anger has prevailed. In the warm bath of the sun they
    were once hateful; down here in the black sludge of the River Styx do they wish
    they had never been born.
    
    After dropping down into Anger, Virgil will be ahead on the path. 
    
    16. Pigs in the Mire
    Location: Anger
    Souls indignant! How many up there count themselves kings, that here shall be
    like pigs in the mire, leaving their condemnations far behind.
    
    After finding Coin 19 and pushing the block onto the sinking platform, follow
    the new path and talk with Virgil to receive this commentary. Talk to him again
    and you will receive the Medusa's Call relic
    
    17. The City Draws Near
    Location: Anger
    Now, my son, the City of Dis draws near, housing its condemned citizens within.
    The eternal fire that blazes there makes the mosques show red, in this nether
    Hell.
    
    After making it to the top of the tower, you will see Phlegyas coming towards
    the tower. Once you regain control of Dante, go to the other side of the tower
    and you will find Virgil. Above him are Coin 21 and the relic Guiding Flame
    
    18. Heresy
    Location: Heresy
    Here you will find the heretics and followers of every cult and pagan sect, all
    buried together, burning in eternal fire.
    
    After making your way into Heresy after falling from Dis, a ray of light will
    blast through a few walls. You will then land on a ledge and Virgil will be
    waiting next to the Demon Door
    
    19. The Harrowing
    Location: Heresy
    Not long after my own death, I saw a Mighty One come down and take forth from
    here a group of ancient shades. Our first parent, his son Abel, Noah, Abraham,
    and many others. The deep foul valley trembled on all sides, and I thought the
    universe felt love.
    
    After reaching the second hallway of flames, destroy the first Throne Demon
    that appears. When you try to go through the Demon Door, another Throne Demon
    will appear. After the second Demon has been destroyed, open the Door and
    Virgil will be right in front of you.
    
    20. Epicurus
    Location: Heresy 
    In this part of Hell, Epicurus with all his followers, who make the soul die
    with the body, have their burial place.
    
    After climbing along the wall and avoiding the fire that is occasionally shot,
    you will find Virgil on the ledge at the top of the wall, next to a Demon Door
    
    21. Three More Circles
    Location: Heresy
    My son, within this remaining cavern, there are three more circles, one below
    another, each full of accursed spirits.
    
    After escaping the falling stalactites in Heresy, the wall behind you will be
    blocked off. Virgil will be waiting next to the newly blocked-off path. 
    
    22. Violence
    Location: Violence
    In violence, wounds and death are inflicted against one's neighbors, and their
    property. This ring torments those murderers and plunderers, and every soul who
    wrongfully smites another.
    
    After dropping from Heresy into Violence, head toward the ships in the
    distance. Virgil will be waiting along the shore
    
    23. Wood of Suicides
    Location: Violence
    One may lay violent hands upon oneself. And therefore in this place those who
    deprived themselves of their lives repent in vain.
    
    After crossing the lake of boiling blood with the two ships, Virgil will be
    waiting on the shore. 
    
    24. Abominable Sands
    Location: Violence
    Violence may be done against the Deity, by denying him in the heart
    
    After making it out of the Wood of Suicide, you will find yourself in a desert
    area. Virgil will be waiting after you make it into the desert after the giant
    fight where you see your mother's spirit.
    
    25. The River Phlegethon
    Location: Violence
    The Phlegethon, the third river in Hell
    
    On the ledge right before you fight Francesco. There will be waterfall of blood
    behind him. 
    
    26. The Final Circle
    Location: Fraud
    Spur yourself onward, Dante. The final circle is near.
    
    After beating the final Malebolge challenge and releasing Beatrice's soul, go
    around the corner and as soon as the camera pans around, Virgil will be right
    next to you or a little behind you
    
    27. Treachery
    Location: Treachery
    For the sin of betraying the love & trust that Nature makes, at the center of
    the Universe, in the seat of the Devil himself, every traitor is consumed
    eternally. 
    
    When you reach the giant ice bridge in Treachery, Virgil will be on the right
    side before you begin crossing the bridge. Due to the camera angle, it can be a
    little hard to see him because he somewhat blends in with the bridge

    When the game begins you will be at the Acre Prison. As you fight, you will
    earn this trophy early on in the fight
    
    2. Abandon All Hope: Break through the Gates of Hell
    As you go through the basement of the church in Florence, you will eventually
    fight an Asterian Beast. Once you gain control of the Beast and kill any

    you fall, you will receive the Trophy
    
    3. Sentence the Judge: Defeat King Minos
    King Minos is the boss at the end of Limbo. Avoid his tentacles by running
    around and avoid his fist slams and sweeps by hiding under one of his tentacles
    that hide a grapple point. Whenever he puts his face near the arena, attack his
    face while avoiding his tongue and the attack his lower stomach when he leans
    back in pain. Then pull him to his wheel to slice his face 
    
    4. Lovers Torn Asunder: Defeat Marc Antony
    Marc Antony is the boss at the end of Lust. For being an early boss, he is very
    powerful. Cleopatra will intervene occasionally. Just avoid Antony's attacks
    and attack him when his guard is down. After he is defeated, Cleopatra will
    shrink down and appear at his side. During this cut scene, you will receive the
    Trophy. 
    
    5. The Great Worm: Defeat Cerberus
    Cerberus is the Gluttony boss and appears at the beginning of the level. To
    defeat Cerberus, you must destroy the left and right heads before you are able
    to hurt the middle head. To destroy the heads, you need to open the fire bulbs
    in the arena and have the heads hover over them. When you finally get the
    middle head weak enough and R2 appears, you must follow the button prompts,
    otherwise Dante will be killed. After the middle head is destroyed, you will
    receive the Trophy
    
    6. Like Father Like Son: Defeat Alighiero
    Alighiero is the boss of Greed. As you chip away at his health, the arena will
    get smaller. Just avoid his attacks, especially when he raises his cross and it
    begins to glow. There is a glitch that will cause Dante to fall through the
    level and end up in Anger, skipping the fight altogether
    
    7. Gates of Dis: Enter the lower circles of The Inferno
    During your fight with Phlegyas, you will see Lucifer and Beatrice a few times.
    After watching Beatrice transform, she will disappear with Lucifer. Dante will
    then take control of Phlegyas and you will cross a long bridge. When you reach
    the other side, you will use Phlegyas to open a pair of doors. Once you break
    through, you will receive the Trophy
    
    8. The Harrowing: Escape Heresy
    As you make your way through Heresy, the entire level will begin to shake. A
    bunch of stalactites will fall and the path will break away. Once you reach the
    end and pass through a narrow opening, the path behind you will be blocked and
    you will receive the Trophy
    
    9. Precious: Find a Beatrice Stone

    Exploding, Gluttony, Greed, Hell, and Undead Minions count
    
    17. Demon Slayer: Kill 30 Demons
    This one may take a while to get because Demons don't appear as often as

    in the first Malebolge challenge because you have infinite Mana
    
    23. Give Me Strength: Open 20 Health Fountains

    Heaven. During this cutscene, you will receive the Trophy
    
    3. Power of the Cross: Find all 3 Beatrice Stones
    The "All" part of the Trophy description is a little misleading. There are 6

    souls. This is an overall total, not a one-time total
    
    11. Masterpiece: Perform a 200 hit combo

    difficulty to Infernal. Constantly use Sins of the Father and you'll easily
    rack up 666 hits. Having Coin of Plutus helps as well. If you don't feel like
    waiting, you can constantly use Holy Cross attacks during the fourth Malebolge
    challenge, but it will take longer to do
    
    3. Gates of Hell: Defeat all enemy waves in the Gates of Hell Arena
    There are 50 waves of enemies in the Gates of Hell, some are easier than

    Dante will look out over Florence and you will receive the Achievement during
    the cutscene
    
    44. Clear Path Not Lost (20): Complete the Dark Forest without getting lost
    once
    As you make your way through the Forest, you must go through the correct portal
    each time and you cannot go back the way you came. If you do, you will not earn
    this Trophy. If you did everything correctly without backtracking, you will
    earn this Achievement at the same time as "Dark Forest"
