Tips

Back to top

2 souls in 1

If you have skull archer (guardian or, blue, soul) and amalrich (or whatever) sniper (red or bullet soul) attached together and you press and hold R for about 2 seconds, amalrich sniper will shoot along with the skull archer, only using skull archers amount of MP.
NOTE: Great to use on Big enemys who move a small amount.

Attack Faster

If you have a heavy weapon like a great sword, slow attacks can be a problem. To hit an enemy twice quickly, stand very close to them and attack. Then just as it connects, press L to dash backwards. As soon as it stops, you can attack again; if you are still close enough it should hit. This is quicker than just attacking twice normally.

Flying Humanoid soul

Everybody THINKS the Flying Humanoid soul does nothing but it does. To make the soul work, you have to hold the R button and if you look at your stats on the top screen, your INT and LCK rapidly grow. Your INT goes to a maximum of +75 and your LCK goes to a maximum of +18. The longer you hold R, the higher your INT and Lck are raised. Be careful though, this drains magic quickly. Best use the Chaos Ring to help you.

Mothman ... Go to the Pinnacle area and locate a hallway with two Final Guards. Use the Rycuda soul on the spotlight's generator between the two Final Guards and nab your enemy.

Flying Humanoid ... Go to the area between the Clock Tower boss and the save point. A figure may be seen in the backdrop. Using the Mandragora soul will lure out this enemy.

Healing in Julius Mode

In Julius Mode, there are only three ways to heal (save point, boss orb, attacking with Yoko). It's the latter of the three ways that are at the focus of this hint.

To heal with Yoko easily, find an Imp. If an Imp pokes you with its pitchfork, your character will begin attacking uncontrollably (berserking). But if Yoko grabs onto the Imp after attacking uncontrollably, she'll swing and hit the enemy, restoring a little life each time. Using this technique, it'll only take thirty seconds max to restore all of your life.

How to finish Dawn of sorrow in less than 4 hours

This tip is just common sense for all those castlevania fans out there who've finished this already and who've already know the game's glitches

Ok, here how it goes:
If you already finishes the game,do the abyss or the normal succubus glitch until you have in your inventory a glitched soul (NULL)that takes up 5 per second of your MP. It's Alucard bat. Unlike the Bat co. soul, this soul will not be taken if you chose new game (whether normal of hard mode).
Chose new game and you will be taken back to the beginning. When you start, equip the Claimh Solais, Dracula tunic and Satan's ring (actually, you can use any accesories you like. And the good items can also be obtained using the glitch) for the item equipment, and equip Alucard's bat (NULL) and any soul for the last 2. Ok, once you've gotten into the lost village, you can use the alucard's bat soul to go to other places [like Demon Guest House] and skip bosses. And to get the other souls (balore, malphas and others) without fighting them, use the glitch again.

P.S. You can also leave Yoko in front of the castle, but she is also in her shop when you check on her.

Iron Golem

The Iron Golem is a tough enemy to take down since it usually only takes one damage per hit. Use the Mjollnjr Hammer weapon which will hit several hits instead of just one. If you cleared the game and unlocked the Boss Rush, use the Terror Bear's soul item for a slightly easier attack on the Iron Golem.

There are some special things the Persephone soul can attack that don't deal damage to yoiur enemy, but still heal you. Use the Persephone soul on the following and see:
1)Balore's punching fist
2)Bat Company while changing form
3)Dead Crusader while blocking

Weapon Synthesis

Weapon Synthesis is a very worthwhile portion of the game. Try to collect the souls that meet the requirements to upgrade your weapons over and over until you get the very best kind of your weapon. This new and super powerful weapon usually has side effects, such as poisoning, paralyzing, or electrocuting. I suggest upgrading Polearms, because they are long range and very powerful, yet they are not too slow.

Glitches

Back to top

Get Alucard stuck! (Funny)

Avoid this unless you want funny results. Use his Y special in a room with a door (the ones that go to zone link screens, not boss doors). Use his special so that he stops moving and attacks directly on the door.He will instead walk through it as if he had walked into it. He will then try to return to his original position which will send him off screen and spiraling upward. You will get all areas of your map revealed directly above and below you as you continue to go up and loop back down.

Reset the game. <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/a_tongue.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />

Castlevania Coolness

Early Cursed Clock Tower

Usually, getting to the Cursed Clock Tower requires you to go through the Condemned tower and defeat Gergoth. However, to be able to get there early, here's how:

In the Garden of Madness, there's a room in the upper right of the area with a Skeleton Ape and a wall that can be opened via switch behind it. Equip the Cutall or the Ciquendia. The Cutall/Ciquendia's special (A button) attack is teleporting behind an enemy and stabbing it. Utilise this by positioning yourself so that you teleport through the wall and on the switch, which is on the other side of the wall, to open the wall, continue from there to get to the Cursed Clock Tower.

How to get all 3 endings

Bad ending = Simply beat Dario the second time you face him.

Good ending = When you fight Dario, jump into the mirror and fight that boss. Beat it and go left for the Magic Seal 5. Return to the Garden of Madness and go to the room with a sealed door that you couldn't enter. Don't equip Mina's Talisman for this ending. Once the door is open, watch the ending.

Best ending = Repeat the same thing as for the good ending except equip Mina's Talisman before entering the sealed door. Now you can explore the castle's final area and beat the true boss. Go to the Condemned Tower and go to the room with the black smoke on the floor. Julius should open it and you just keeping going down till you fight death. After he's gone, you'll fight Abaddon a few rooms later. After he's gone, go through a few more rooms and you'll fight Menace. Beat him and you'll get the best ending.
