This is NOT a guide to every level and instance on the Prince of Darkness difficulty. These are just some tips to clear the Prince of Darkness difficulty.

Note: You have to beat the game once on any difficulty setting to unlock the Prince of Darkness difficulty.

1) I strongly advise to pick up all the character upgrades, I refer to the Expert Silversmith and Multiple Pockets guides to find them all. These upgrades make sure you don't run out of your Magic and your HP pool needs to be big because it will receive a ton of punishment. The extra Relics make sure you can breeze through boss fights.

2) Try and level up your Chaos Claws to max level as fast as possible. They are your main damage and the Chaos Bomb projectiles work miracles in boss fights.

3) For general fights versus monsters, try to get a hang of Synched Blocking. This will negate a lot of damage but be careful with the counterstrike, you will not get interrupted but you will get damaged by other monsters while counterstriking.

4) Often travel back to Chupacabras' Shop if you run out of relics. Since you have beaten the main story before, you know when boss fights will happen. Always stock up on Relics and heal up!

5) If you don't have much confidence in your Synched Blocking, use the Rising combo, X/Y + A and follow up with Guillotine combo, Hold X. Rince and repeat and you should be able to dispatch most enemies excluding the armored ones. This combo often stuns your enemies so you don't risk getting hit. Keep dashing if you are in a sticky situation.

6) Since the only boss fight I really didn't breeze through was the final one, I used a cheap strategy. I started the fight with 4 Tears of a Saint but just by fighting and dodging, I lost pretty hard. I then switched to just using the Ensnared Demon relic and spamming Chaos Bombs. Use a Tears of a Saint when you are at half health. I used the Dragon Emblem at 75% of the 2nd bar to finish him off.

If you downvote, please let me know what is wrong with it in the comments and I will try to fix the problem.
