Introduction
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------
    In the world of Blood Omen 2 a small group of vampires has joined with the
Sarafan forces.  These vampires
are very dangerous and it takes skill and good tactics to beat them in battle.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------
Tactics
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------
    Many people just start targeting and slashing with blocking but to kill
these vampires it takes more than that,
actually you hardly even have to use slashing.  First we will start with the

Fury Technique - This tactic is very useful but you must prepare for it by
setting the option blocking to Assisted blocking.
 Hold the L2 button and select the Fury Dark Gift with the right analog stick. 
Target the enemy and hold L1 till your rage
meter is bright red (Rage meter is on top left of screen).  When it turns bright
read make sure you have a good alignment
and hit the O button.  This takes a chunk out of their hit points.  This tactic
is non-blockable.

Block and Tap - With the Assist blocking mode on, take 3 hits from the enemy
then start slashing.  Hit them 2 times
(they will block these attacks) then stall and attack 3 times.  This tactic can
be used most effective with claws.

Limit Dodging - Most strong bosses or enemies have a non-blockable attack that
is ready when they start charging
then they hit you full force and knock off half or a quarter of your hit points. 
When you see a enemy squat down
or lean back for 1.5 seconds, press X to the left.  Not the right because the
probability of them hitting you
is greater in the right direction.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------
Faustus
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------
              In this battle you will walk through a small passage and into a
room then a event will happen and Faustus will
challenge you to a battle. 

Stage 1: Use the Fury Technique about 5 times, do NOT block and attack( Block
and attacking will lead to half dead
vampire being beaten by the traitor vampire.)  When 1/5th of his blood is gone
he will jump into a tunnel and tell Kain
that he has a surprise for him.

Stage 2: Turn to your left and go through the open door that is on ground level
and then go into the next room. 
This room will have 4 ovens on each side with a switch on the bottom.  Hold L2
before entering and select the Mist Dark Gift.

------------------------------------------------------------

Faustus will jump from oven to oven.  There is mist on the sides around the
ovens, there is some mist on one or more
 ovens that reaches to the corners.  Run at him until he comes to one of these. 
Then go on the corner with the mist
 and go into mist form.  Run to the switch of the oven that he is on top of and
turn it on.  This will take 3 times
before he starts to go around and around the room.

Stage 3: In the middle of the room there will be some light patterns shining on
the ground.  Stand still till you hear
 him fall down then run,  it doesn’t matter just away from the place that you
was at.  Faustus will drop kick into the
 wall and will be stunned.  Do this over and over till he finally dies. 
Congratulations you have gained the Jump Dark Gift.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------
Marcus
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------
When fighting this extremely easy vampire you need to switch on the Jump Dark
Gift.

Stage 1: There will be 2 bell switch on either side of the wall.  Just go back
and fort switching them on.  Marcus
 will be stunned when you turn one of them on.  So just start targeting and
slashing till he vanishes.  Do this till
 he is 1/4th dead.

Stage 2: Marcus will call upon his charmed priest minions to attack you on
sight.  Go to the second story from the
 stairs behind the altar.  When you see his image flicker just run toward him
and target then slash.  You do not have
 to target anything just slash in the direction that he vanished.  He will die
eventually, congratulations you have
 gained the Dark Gift of Charm.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------
Sebastian
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------
The hardest of the 3, Sebastian is fast and cunning.

Stage 1: Sebastian will battle you in the middle of the room below the Nexus
Stone.  Watch out for the steam that circles
 around the arena.  Use the Fury Technique till he goes into

Stage 2: This is a bit tricky,  the Nexus stone is activated and steam is in 2
jets that circle the room.  Sebastian
 goes around and around and stops at 1 of 4 points around the room.  What you
need to do is keep walking between the
 two steam jets.  When he stops look and notice where he is and hide behind the
Nexus Beam.  He will jump into the beam
 and be damaged pretty badly.  Do this 3 times and he should ask the mechanic to
lift the platform.

Stage 3: Sebastian will try to destroy the Nexus Stone in this stage, just jump
on top of the platform and hold
L2 to turn on the Charm Dark gift and hit O.  Aim at the mechanic that is behind
the window at the control panel at
 the far wall.  Turn on the switch that makes the steam go on.  Sebastian will
jump on the platform and go back into Stage 1
 type of fighting.  Do not fall off the platform or you will die.  When his
blood is gone he will fall off the platform.
 Congratulations you have gained the Dark Gift of Berserk
