Collect every type of creature core.

Notes: This one is going to take a LONG time, even tho you technically only need the first level of every core, so you won’t have to grind out every core to level 3. That being said, some cores are rare, and one core in particular requires you to tackle a secret platforming challenge inside the Void to acquire it : The Leviathan Core.

The game has a total of 67 Creature Cores, separated into three main categories : Attack, Wrath and Health. Most orbs you’ll get from simply playing normally, as demons have a decent chance of dropping one upon death.

However, there are a lot of Cores that are not available through loot and drops, and will have to be purchased from Vulgrim. He’s got fixed versions you can purchase once, and randomized versions which will give you a randomly selected Core from a certain Chapter pool. The second option is great after beating the Arena, as you’ll have plenty of souls to spare.

Keep in mind: There’s one demon that doesn’t spawn anywhere other than in the Arena, the Corrupted Tidehunter. You’ll also need to beat the secret boss unlocked by opening all Trickster Doors, as he also has a core to drop for your collection.

Ulck Pointed out that there is an easy way to get one of the Leviatan Cores without too much trouble.
you have to assign X to the jump in the settings and then spam jump with War to get the core. Hope it can help, because I had a lot of troubles with the double jump-wings-etc. combo.

Credit to the video goes to Ulck. Thank you for bringing this to my attention

Here is a video on how to do it the normal way if you feel so inclined to do so.
Credits go to KyKiske7 for making the video.

IKillsafeThanks for this tutorial, i used the video but changed it up slightly, i was having trouble with accuracy while gliding so what i did was glide to each one and just as i was above the next stepping stone, I would stop gliding and press Y for wing clip. this would stop the glide instantly and the kick would give me a second to see which way i needed to adjust before landing. Once i done this i got it after two tries.

UlckI'd like to suggest to add at the solution the video that I made to get the Leviathan's core. The video of Jesus doesn't work anymore and there is an easier way to get the core: you have to assign X to the jump in the settings and then spam jump with War to get the core. Hope it can help, because I had a lot of troubles with the double jump-wings-etc. combo.

HealttiThe air combo spam still works, on the freshly patched win10 version. I will say though that @Ulck makes it look very easy. Your mileage may vary! smile

Dokter VI got the "Corrupted Tidehunter" Core at the Boss battle in Chapter 12: The Maelstrom. The minions there are Corrupted Tidehunters.

Doc BuddhaI have the corrupted tidehunter cote and have only played the first couple of arena levels so it must be collectable in story mode.

corpirateThe combo spam worked for me - but I was at it for 5-10 minutes. I was button mashing the hell out of it but War kept spinning his sword mid-air and slamming in to the ground rather than going any higher. In an effort to negate this combo I tried slowing down my button mashing and got up quite quickly after that. Perhaps it was just luck.
