Step 1 - First Playthrough

This game is pretty easy and won't take you very long to finish off. You can set the game to easy (Classic) and still get all of the trophies. This will also make the Gates of Hell much easier as that mode will be set to easy as well. Most of the missable trophies are collectables. Fortunately, the relics and Beatrice Stones you find carry over to your next playthrough. Unfortunately, the silver coins, shades, and Virgil commentaries do not. Try to get all of the collectables on your first playthrough.

Also on your first playthrough, go exclusively on either the holy or unholy path. If you absolve or punish one shade or demon, then do the same until you hit level 7 holy/unholy. You should reach level 7 at some point during Fraud. Levelling up requires that you punish (unholy) or absolve (holy) the shades or certain enemies (minions, demons, and gluttons for example). With each punishment or absolution, you gain experience points that add to your level. To max out the holy path, you will need 89,000 souls and for the unholy path and 86,500 souls. Once you reach level 7, then start gaining experience on the other path if you still have shades or demons left. Advance as far as you can in preparation for your Resurrection mode playthrough.

Step 2 - The Gates of Hell

After you complete your first playthrough, begin Gates of Hell mode. Gates of Hell is Dante's Inferno's version of the God of War challenges, only, much, much easier. There are no specific requirements for each wave, there are just more and more enemies each wave. There are 50 waves in all. The difficulty that you completed the game on is what Gates of Hell will be set to. It takes about 30 minutes to complete if you have it set to easy. If you complete the wave within the time, you'll get a time bonus for the next round. Completing a round without getting hit and absolving/punishing demons will also get you a time bonus. Any holy/unholy abilities that you unlock will not carry over to your next.

Step 3 - Resurrection Mode

Now that everything else is out of the way, it's time to being Resurrection mode. Resurrection mode, is basically New Game+ but you will start out at the Shores of Acheron. You get to keep all of your relics, Beatrice Stones, any holy/unholy upgrades you've purchased, as well as the souls you've collected buy your pieces of silver, shades and Virgil commentaries are reset. Your goal here is to max out whichever path you didn't in your first playthrough. Also, clean up any collectables that you may have missed. The collectables guide here: LINK will lead you to everything you need to find (credit to rrushn for this).

Trials of St. Lucia DLC:

-Estimated trophy difficulty: 7/10
-Offline (breakdown): 0
-Online (breakdown): 10 (7, 2 Unobtainable, Server now Closed
-Approximate amount of time to /100%: 10 hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: multiple trials
-Number of missable trophies: none
-Glitched trophies: none
-Does difficulty affect trophies? yes, you'll have to play all levels of trials
-Do cheat codes disable trophies? no cheats

Dante's Inferno Trials Of St. Lucia is online only DLC. The trophies consist of creating community trials, playing community trials, rating community trials and playing through official EA trials.

Please be aware that in order to get 100% in this game you will need a strong boosting partner for the 2-player EA trials.


Step 1: Creating Trials
You will need to create trials to obtain three of the trophies. Trial creation consists of choosing your level, the length of your trial, how many waves your trial will have, the type of enemies the player will be fighting, the details of what those enemies can do, which character you'll control (Dante or Lucia), whether the trial will be single player or two player and what each wave will consist of.

You can make as many trials as you want, but for the sake of the trophies you'll be required to make at least one single player trial and one two player trial.

Upon completion of a trial you are awarded a medal based on the trial's difficulty. As you're creating your trial the amount of points your trial will award will vary depending on the factors you choose and how difficult you make it. The following are the point requirements for medals:

No Medal: 0-499 points
Bronze Medal: 500-2499 points
Silver Medal: 2500-4999 points
Gold Medal: 5000-7499 points
Platinum Medal: 7500-10,000 points

Step 2: Playing Through Community Trials
You'll need to complete 100 bronze trials, 75 silver trials, 50 gold trials and 25 platinum trials for trophies. There are many short community trials available that will make this go by very quickly. Some trials are as short as 10 seconds long. Search for these short trials and play them. You can check the details of a trial by pressing the button once its highlighted.

As you're working towards this trophy make sure to rate every trial once you complete it. You'll need to rate a total of 100 trials for The Critic. You can get this as you work towards the other trophies. You'll also to need to add 10 trials to your favorites. Simply add the first 10 trials you play as favorites.

You'll need to accumulate a total of 250,000 points in online trials. This should come naturally as you work towards the medal trophies. Remember you can get bonus points by completing certain trials over and over. The trial will have certain benchmarks set that will award extra points once you've completed it 10 times, 20 times etc.

Step 3: Playing the Official EA Trials
This is the step that gives the DLC its higher difficulty ratings. These trials are tough. I recommend playing through the training trials first. It takes patience and practice. Don't give up.

For the 2-player trials you'll need to find a strong boosting partner. If you're skilled but your partner continues to die you'll get nowhere. Visit the boosting thread here if you need to find someone: Boosting Thread

    Semiramis - After the snake head that you have to break it's teeth to continue. You also receive a cutscene with Beatrice sitting in on a bed.

    Pigs in the Mire - After using a box to make a platform go down.
    The City Draws Near - After going up the platform that you have to make sure the fire thing doesn't catch up. Right next to the rope that goes down and you'll get onto the big behemoth's head that you'll ride through the City of Dis (except that's not yet, you ride it across a pond).

    Heresy - After descending into Heresy, he'll be waiting for you.
    The Harrowing - Right after you go through the two hallways that have fire levers (one of which, demons try to catch you in it).
    Epicurus - When you get to the main room where you're moving up a statue so it gets hit by light (the first time), you'll have to get across some demon walls and once you are passed them, Virgil will be waiting for you. It's also right before the room with 5 fire walls needing to be closed.

  • Collect 60,000 Souls

    Impossible to miss, it's cumulative, this will come late in the game.

  • Send Charon back into the abyss

    This one is missable!

    When you've ripped off Charon's head in the Shores of Acheron, you throw it away.
    Right after the cutscene you enter a building and in this building you come across it's head.
    Get close to it and press R_1.png to push it away.

  • Perform a 50 hit combo

    You'll probably get this during the first fight.
    A 50 hit combo isn't hard at all, you just need enough enemies.
    Spamming Cross attack with circle18x18.png is the best way to get this.

  • Perform a 200 hit combo

    See "Poetry in Motion"

  • Perform a 666 hit combo

    You don't need to get exactly 666.

    The best place for this is almost at the end of the game, during the Malebolge challenges. There is one challenge (Malebolge 4) where you need to be in the air for 8 seconds. Make sure you don't go up in the air and keep spamming Cross attack with , the enemies will keep respawning which makes it a piece of cake to get up to 666+ (credit to GameOverSuckas for the video):


    Relics- Coin of Plutus this increases the combo window having it to Lvl 3 will help greatly that way the combo window will stay up for 3.3 secs and that gives you enough time to roll if they get close and block you or if they block your crosses.

    Lord's Blessing relic at lvl 3. It increases the damage of all cross attacks and abilities.

    Credit to Kingofdarkness for this info.

    If you're on the second playthrough, you can also do this on Malebolge 1. You have to set the difficulty to Infernal. You'll have infinite magic, so spam Sins of the Father (credit to mezrik100 for the video):


  • Kill 30 Minions

    Impossible to miss, there are more then enough minions. These are the most common enemies. They will appear once you enter the Shores of Acheron and remain for the rest of the game. If you punish or absolve them, it counts as a kill.

  • Kill 30 Demons

    Impossible to miss, there are more then enough demons. These are the large creatures with horns and first appear in the Shores of Acheron. You can kill them or absolve/punish them for more holy/unholy experience. If you punish or absolve them, it counts as a kill.

  • Kill 20 Unbaptized Babies

    Impossible to miss, there are more then enough Unbaptized Babies. They first appear in Limbo and remain throughout the game.

  • Kill 5 Gluttons

    Impossible to miss. They first appear in Gluttony and appear occasionally throughout the rest of the game. These are the very large, fat men that spit bile at you. Even if you play on Easy, you should find enough to get this trophy in your first play through. If you don't get it, you'll get enough in Gates of Hell mode.

  • Kill 5 Heretics

    Impossible to miss. Heretics first appear in Heresy and are the enemies that teleport around. If they have a purple symbol above their heads, they're immune to your cross attack (circle18x18.png) and will make every other enemy immune as well.

  • Kill 20 enemies using a counter move

    To execute a counter move, push L2.png just before an enemy attacks, then quickly push square18x18.png or Triangle18x18.png. You have to kill the enemy with the counter move or else it won't count. Even for minions, it'll take at least two counter moves to kill it. It's recommended to use the Hoarder's Purse relic to increase the time you can use a counter.

  • Kill 20 enemies using magic

    You can get this by playing normally through the game and attack with magic, or when you reach the Malebolge Circles. In the first challenge here, you'll have to do a challenge with infinite Magic and there's way more then 20 enemies there. Just use Sins of the Father spell (received from the Gluttony boss) during this challenge, and you'll get it easily.

  • Open 20 Health fountains

    Just open every Health fountain, the green ones.

  • Open 20 Mana fountains

    Just open every Mana fountain, the purple ones.

  • Reach Holy Level 7

    Absolve every enemy you get the chance to, you can grab most enemies too with R2.png and choose between Punish or Absolve. Make sure absolve all the damned you come across for lots of points. If you chose for the Holy path only you'll get this without problem on your first playthrough. Be sure to have the Charon's oar relic equipped. You'll get bonus holy experience.

  • Reach Unholy Level 7

    Same as "Light in the Dark" but now Punish all enemies. The relics that you should have equipped are Tail of Minos (bonus experience) and Francesca's Book (bonus unholy experience for every 50 kills with a scythe).

    Buy all the Holy upgrades for this one.

  • Max out the Unholy path

    Buy all the Unholy upgrades for this one.

  • Defeat all enemy waves in the Gates of Hell Arena

    You'll unlock this Arena after beating the game.

    To make it a piece of cake make sure you finish the game on easy and then start this one.
    You'll have to go through 50 waves of enemies, there's a timer running and for completing a wave you'll get a time bonus.

    Completing a wave without taking damage gives you another time bonus as does absolving/punishing enemies.

DLC: Dark Forest

2 trophies

  • Complete the Dark Forest on any difficulty

    Just beat the DLC on any difficulty you want to. You will start with both the holy and unholy tree maxed out, but you don't have any relics from the main game. If you just want to get through with it quickly, choose the lowest difficulty setting.

  • Complete the Dark Forest without getting lost once

    This one isn't that bad either, you'll probably figure out how to not get lost after the first playthrough on your own, but here's how to do it so that you can get both trophies in one playthrough:

    You'll reach the statue of a Puma during the DLC which you can activate. By activating it, you'll get a short description of what to do and the moon starts shining. All you have to do now is always choose the entrance to the east. But, you have to be careful: the moon always shines from the north, so you have to use that to determine which one actually IS the eastern entrance. In other words, north isn't always the top entrance, if the moon shines from your left, the top entrance is the eastern one.

    After you've made it out of this part of the forest, you'll reach the statue of a lion. This one requires you to use the lion to enlighten certain entrances with the moonlight. The first one you have to choose is the one on the west side of the screen. After that, just turn the lion to the entrance the murder uses and then follow him until you make it out of the forest.

    NOTE: The statue of a wolf you'll reach now doesn't count for the trophy, so just mess around there until you catch the murder, it doesn't matter. The trophy unlocks after you've beaten the Dark Forest.

DLC: Trials of St. Lucia

10 trophies

  • Upload a Single Player Dante Gold Trial

    Unobtainable, Server now Closed

    You'll need to create a gold medal single player trial using Dante as your character. The following are the point requirements for obtaining medals in the trials. You'll want to make sure that your trial offers enough points to obtain the gold medal.

    Bronze Medal: 500-2499 points
    Silver Medal: 2500-4999 points
    Gold Medal: 5000-7499 points
    Platinum Medal: 7500-10,000 points

    The difficulty of your trial will raise depending on what you choose to put into it. Be creative. It doesn't take much to bump up the difficulty.

  • Upload a 2P Lucia & Dante Platinum Trial

    Unobtainable, Server now Closed

    See Creationism
    Make sure this trial is a 2-player trial and that you're using Dante and Lucia.

  • Receive a vote of at least 4-stars on any of your uploaded Trials

    One of your created trials needs to receive a 4-star rating. This may come naturally however if no one is rating your trial you can visit the boosting thread and have someone help you out by rating your trial.

  • Rate Any 100 Trials

    Unobtainable, Server now Closed

    Rate every trial you complete while working towards completing the required amount of community trials and points needed for other trophies. You can rate a trial even if you fail it.

  • Beat 25 different single player and 15 different two-player EA trials

    Unobtainable, Server now Closed

    First off this trophy should have been a gold. It's tough. Best advice is to be patient and practice as much as you can. Don't give up on them. They're hard but not impossible. Complete the training trials first.

    For the 2-player trials you'll want to find a strong boosting partner that has a good understanding of the game and that won't die repetitively. If you're a strong player but your partner isn't you won't get very far at all with the 2-player trials. Boosting Thread

    In my opinion the Divine Armour magic is the biggest help in these trials. This is the spell that regenerates health. Make sure to have it assigned to one of the controls and then to activate it press .

  • Earn a Player Score of 100,000

    Unobtainable, Server now Closed

    See You're The Best Around!
