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).

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
