    Persistence is the key for this achievement. This is not a full guide, just a heads up on a couple of the more difficult areas. First off, there are only 2 Imprisoner fights. One at the end of mission 4, and the other at the end of mission 6. During both fights other enemies will spawn around them, making it more difficult/infuriating. I'd recommend stocking up on Large Vital Stars, as the Imprisoner fight at the end of mission 6 is especially trying. I believe there are 2 flying demons with him. Can't remember their name but they pierce through the air with their swords and are blue in color. Take them out first or be prepared to be retrying a lot. After they are removed, the fight with the Imprisoner becomes MUCH easier, and is just a matter of using spiral swords (hold x with full DT) demon sword (RT plus Y). The other fight that can be a pain is the Hollow Vergil boss fight on mission 5. Oh boy. Again, have Large Vital Stars ready and maybe a couple gold orbs. If you want a sure fire way to parry his attacks, jump in the air and use LT+B to throw the circular saws and stun him. Once stunned, pull him towards you and use RT+Y to hack him with demon sword. Once he goes into the background get ready for intensely fast swords surrounding you. Have your finger always on LB. 1, 2 dodge. 1, 2 dodge. You will learn the pattern quickly but you have to be much faster that even Son of Sparda mode. He also casts them for much longer. During the fight he will go into the background twice casting the swords. After he reappears just keep using LT+B to stun followed by the RT+Y and you will prevail. Another good tip is to jump then once in the air mash LB to teleport even higher, then hold RT+B to slam him from above with fire and force. The rest of the game is just a matter of a few more difficult arena fights that most anyone will prevail at with a little persistence. Hope this helps someone, and it's just a lill heads up about what to expect. Thanks!

    andrew 290000If people are having a really hard time with the imprisoner fights they can simply kill all the other enemies and then dodge while using the basic throwing knife attack, it takes a little longer but you are much less likely to be hit and die right before beating them.

    MorbidEclipse24A big tip on top of these. Throughout the other missions keep an eye for ledges and simply knock them up with B then doing the regular Y attacks (Y Y Y) and it knocks them off and instantly kills them. Helps to get through the enemies fast. Use the RT-X to stun the shielded enemies to knock them off. For most other enemies the RT-X attack to pull them in followed by some quick RT-Y attacks or standard attacks work great. Every time you pull them in it stuns them for a moment. So spamming that works pretty well. Good luck!

    Making Vergil Must Die more manageble

    I found having 100% of the items maxed out before I started the mission, as well as, a healthy amount of souls rebuy all that I used between each shrine was helpful...

    I order to do this, you must BEAT Son of Sparda Difficulty which will unlock Hell or Heaven difficulty. Then, replay the game on Heaven or Hell until you get to MISSION 5. You will kill him and finish the mission in a single hit and you will be awarded 500 souls. Rinse and Repeat. It takes 20 seconds or so, and you can get 1500 souls a minute which will can max out your skills and inventory. Remember, save a bit more to stock up as you progress through each level. Do this before EACH mission to ensure success.

    I will point out, you still need to play well enough to pass the fights, but with a lot of health and trigger power, it makes this much easier.
