Chapter 8-1: Outer Wall
Kill 10 gremlins with silver daggers

When you run down the first chain to the circular fenced area, gremlins will spawn. Use shadow magic and then fire away with your daggers to kill them quickly.

Chapter 8-2: Clockwork Tower
Reach the top of the tower in under 5 minutes

Make sure your magic is charged up before you start because you're going to need it for the Mechanical Monstrosity at the end (there is a neutral soul dispenser near the fight, but you'll lose time filling up). Easy shortcut is to double jump from the starting platform to the one between the two beams and then double jump again as it allows you to skip the beams. Apparently it is possible to double jump to the right of the platform on to one of the moving platforms next to the elevator, but that would no doubt require a lot of attempts and take too damn long when really you don't need that much time.

Once you use the rotating switch to raise the platform, double jump again to it and then double jump off it to the platform with the electric charges on the wall.

When you reach the  second set of electric wall charges, jump up to the handhold, wait for the lowest charge to turn on twice, then jump up when it turns off, wait for the middle charge, then jump up again twice, wait for the upper charge to turn off and then you're at the top.

For the Mechanical Monstrosity, use Ultimate Light on it then Ultimate Shadow until it starts shining, then follow the QTE prompts.

Chapter 8-3: Olrox
Maintain maximum focus for 60 seconds

Get your focus meter up by using basic attacks, or by deflecting one of Olrox's attacks and then following it up with attacks of your own, then make sure that you regularly hit Olrox so your meter doesn't drop. In theory the difficulty shouldn't make a difference since you have to avoid getting hit in any circumstance, but harder difficulties increase the number of hits required to build up your meter so do it on Squire. When he starts feeding on the werewolf corpses, then destroy the first three (these hits also contribute to keeping your focus meter up), but make sure you don't destroy the fourth corpse before you've reached 60 seconds otherwise you might kill Olrox too soon.

Chapter 8-4: The Throne Room
Defeat the Dark Lord after she destroys 10 of her own minions

You have to do this during the first stage of the battle, when Camilla hovers in the centre of the room and uses her electric attacks. Make sure that you've got enemy health bars turned on in Extras, then weaken the vampire warriors such that their health bar is almost empty. Use fairies to distract the warriors when Camilla is about to zap you and stand behind them so that the electric attack kills them. On average, you should get a couple of kills per electric attack. Note that only 10 warriors in total will spawn, so if you kill one by accident you'll have to restart the level.
