4 : Kill The Shadow
The bad news is that anyone weak to that element will likely be hit pretty hard, as she'll continue hammering on whoever is weak to the element she's using. Therefore, it's not a bad idea to know revival skills like Recarm, or have items on hand such as Revival Beads to bring fainted party members back to life.
4 : Kill The Shadow
Shadows are ancient demons with great experience in fighting human knights with bladed weapons, but due to the sealing off of the Underworld they have had no opportunity to adapt to modern weaponry and are weak against firearms. Their form in the Human World is their own shadow bound with magical spells which protect them and allow them to change their shape at will: the default form resembles a sabertooth cat.
When fighting multiple Shadows, something which becomes far more common on higher difficulties, it is best to try to isolate one of them and defeat it quickly: not attacking and trying to stay at medium range can be a good way to goad a Shadow into using its Skewer attack, allowing for a quick critical hit kill. Shadows always drop Green Orbs when defeated, so knocking them out one at a time is the best way to keep Dante in the fight. Air Raid can be useful for attacking multiple Shadows, though it is important to keep on the move as Guillotine and Skewer can target Dante in the air, and if he is low enough he is also vulnerable to Hedgehog. As noted above, Nightmare-β is also very useful for attacking multiple Shadows at once.
In Dante Must Die mode, Shadows are the only enemies that alter their behavior while in their Devil Trigger state. In this state, rather than only firing their counter projectiles when struck with a melee weapon, they will fire them as a proximity attack whenever Dante is in range. It is generally agreed that it is impossible to kill a Shadow with a single round of critical hits in DMD mode.
A Shadow normally drops about 50 Red Orbs, which increases to 290 if it is killed with critical damage to its core while standing on the spear. The amount of Red Orbs awarded is increased by 10 for each time Dante stands on the Shadow's spear, with no apparent upper limit: according to Joch1 of former Devil May Cry fansite Phantombabies.net, with extreme persistence it is possible to get over 1,000 Red Orbs from a single Shadow in this manner.
A shadow demon appears as a leader of the demon rebellion against Mundus, taking the place of Nelo Angelo, who perished in the war. Though initially human, he can take on the form of a Shadow while in his Devil Trigger state. His clothing is similar to Dante's, but black in color.
If anyone needs help with anything in this game, go check out the Hell Hades Discord server. I learnt about a great Spider strategy called PARAGON there, and at the discord there are lots of experienced players that can help you out. If anyone doesnt want to go there and owns Paragon, put Paragon at 151 speed, and a 2 star Elfguard, with min 10 000 hp less than Paragon, at 151 speed in the leader slot. The rest of the team needs to keep the turn meter down and deal a bit of damage. You cant use any skills that increase the tm of Paragon or Elfguard. 3 Armigers using their A2 would do it in maybe 4 minutes. Replace 1 Armiger with Coldheart, Royal Guard, Septimus or any other enemy max hp champ for a faster run, and for an around 1 minute 45 seconds run add an HP burner. Once again, go check out the Hell Hades discord if you need help with any team comp in this game.
ApostleDrawn to the occult, absorbed by the shadow and chose rejection, yet still alive to tell the tale. You believe in your end drawing near.PerkAbilitySeal of ReikalaProsIncreased max Stamina. (+50 max Stamina)
Increased max Health. (+25 max Health)
Immune to Fracture.
Due to perk abilities and equipping the melee costing health, Apostle has an emphasis on lifesteal. Enemies marked by the Apostle through their secondary ability will heal upon being killed by Shadow Hunters or Theourgia's Hand.
Just like Drifter and Crosslink, Apostle is unlocked through completing a specific challenge. This challenge is called "The Sickler" and requires you to kill a Sickler (or deal the finishing hit), a dangerous Reikgon Shadow that is powerful, tanky and fast.
Sicklers spawn in preset locations and can be located audibly through their continuous crying. Getting too close to a Sickler will enrage it, causing it to scream for 5 seconds before charging at the nearest Agent/NPC. Sicklers can outspeed most Agents, deal high damage, have high health (700HP) and heal upon successful kills.
The Seal of Reikala allows the Apostle to summon a Shadow Hunter when the ability bar is at 100% by tapping the ability button. Summoning a Shadow Hunter costs 20 HP and a maximum of 2 Shadow Hunters can be summoned at a time. If a third shadow hunter is spawned by the player, then the oldest shadow hunter currently summoned by that respective player will die and be replaced by the new shadow hunter.
Shadow Hunters are mutilated, scythe-wielding Reikgons that follow the player closely. Shadow Hunters have 150 HP, with a 25% resistance to gunfire. and will indiscriminately attack enemies within their detection radius, dealing 15 (60 on Heavy attacks) damage per hit. Shadow Hunters can dodge and parry melee attacks. Shadow Hunters can also parry gunfire and can become briefly invulnerable to gunfire when at 50% health, backing away from them. Shadow Hunters killing enemies will not gain you HP, but killing Condemned Enemies via Shadow Hunters will net you 15 HP.
If an Agent dies and you summon a Hunter, they will become a shadow form of the Agent's outfit. Shadow Hunters persist if the Apostle dies and will continue killing but will mostly stay still if they do not see any enemies. Shadow hunters that lack an apostle will die after a certain amount of time in the mortal realm.
When a Shadow Hunter is summoned, the ability percentage will freeze and will increase only with killing Condemned enemies. If all Shadow Hunters die, the ability percentage will increase over time as normal. If a fellow Agent dies, the ability will completely refill.
Apostle spawns with a unique melee weapon called Theourgia's Hand, which plays an important role in playing Apostle. Theourgia's Hand permanently occupies the Apostle's melee slot and cannot be removed but behaves like a normal melee weapon. It is able to parry, deal maximum Fracture and will debuff enemies on hit. Enemies hit by a heavy attack will be Condemned but is risky due to you having to get into melee range instead of throwing Stakes from a distance. Killing enemies with Theourgia's Hand (using light or heavy attacks) will regain 15 HP. Enemies killed by Theourgia's Hand will give lifesteal and ability percentage to the Apostle regardless of whether they were Condemned or not.
Apostle is limited to Theourgia's Hand as their primary melee. Equipping Theourgia's Hand costs 25HP (and will kill the Apostle if they are below 25 HP) and taking items forces the weapon to de-equip. The player can still use their fists by switching to other slots, but lifesteal effects do not apply to them.
In the Seireitei, technicians at the Shinigami Research and Development Institute frantically monitor the appearance of sixteen powerful Quincy within massive Reishi crosses who have bypassed the Shakonmaku and killed hundreds of Shinigami, including 3rd Division Lieutenant Izuru Kira, 3rd Seat Rikū Togakushi, 5th Seat Taketsuna Gori, and 6th Seat Asuka Katakura. Incredulous at the invaders having slain over 1,000 Shinigami in the first seven minutes, 12th Division 3rd Seat Akon asserts that the Gotei 13 cannot possibly win.
Upon deflecting Cang's subsequent strike with the claws and slashing at his neck, Hitsugaya is startled to see his blade stopped with a metallic clang prior to being kicked back by Cang. However, Hitsugaya informs Cang that he can no longer use his arm, causing Cang to look down to see his right arm encased in ice, and declares that he has no intention of holding back with so many of his comrades killed, only for Cang to rush forward and slam his arm against Hitsugaya's Zanpakutō, destroying part of the ice while his skin below takes on a steely hue and remains unharmed as a surprised Hitsugaya is thrown through a wall by the impact.
Multiplayer shipped with 10 maps. Users are encouraged to create their own custom map presets called "Warzones", which then can be shared with others or promoted by the Killzone community. Classes, abilities and weapons are unlocked from the start. The class system has been simplified to just three: Assault, Scout and Support (with some medic abilities from previous games now subsumed under "Support"). The player unlocks skill enhancements based on completing challenges unique to his class. Alongside competitive multiplayer, a 4-player online co-operative mode was introduced with the Intercept expansion pack, released on 24 June 2014.
The game begins in the year 2370, several years after the construction of "The Wall", during the forced relocation of Vektans out of New Helghan. Michael Kellan and his 5-year-old son, Lucas, attempt to sneak through New Helghan to The Wall. Along the way, they meet Sinclair, a Shadow Marshal, who aids them in making it through to safety. Just as the group makes it to The Wall, Helghast forces spot them and kill Michael. After Sinclair dispatches the remaining forces, he promises Lucas that he will look after him. A brief cutscene plays, showing Lucas rising through the ranks of the Shadow Marshal Academy, eventually becoming a full-fledged Shadow Marshal and working under Sinclair's command.
Upon arriving at VSA headquarters, a massive explosion rips through the building, killing several civilians and soldiers. Through the confusion, Kellan meets up with Sinclair; just as a broadcast comes through from Vladko Tyran, leader of "The Black Hand", a paramilitary terrorist group claiming responsibility for the attack. As a result of the terrorism, all Helghast citizens residing on the Vektan side of The Wall are deported to New Helghan. Sinclair sends Kellan under-cover with the rest of the refugees in order to locate Tyran. Eventually he finds Tyran and learns that he is working for Jorhan Stahl (having survived the events of Killzone 3), who plans to use Massar's bio-tech weapon that has been altered to target Vektans. Shortly after, Kellan is taken captive. 041b061a72
