Completing Darksiders II on the Apocalyptic difficulty setting during your first playthrough can be extremely challenging and unnecessary in my opinion. This is due to the fact that the level cap on your first playthrough is 22 which ultimately means if you're seeking to acquire every achievement in this game you will be forced to play through it a second time to reach level 30. I suggest commencing your first playthrough on the Easy or Normal difficulty setting in order to level up, create a build more suitable for Apocalyptic and gain knowledge on your enemies combat styles. Additionally, during your Easy or Normal playthrough you should target every side quest seeing as it'd make your Apocalyptic journey far easier since you'd only need to handle main quests.

The build I used throughout the multitude of my Apocalyptic playthrough focused heavily on dealing critical damage while also focusing on health/wrath regeneration. My scythes were possessed so I did sacrifice a variety of weapons to create it rather than use a pre-made scythe. As for my secondary, I used Absolution (awarded for completing the story). I constantly altered my character's armour, so there was no actual foundation for my armour. I'm sure that this build isn't the greatest, but I can assure you that it will get the job done.

When playing on Apocalyptic, value every point of health you possess, remain vigilant during combat situations, and always be prepared to dodge incoming enemy attacks. Be patient and have fun!
