G-RANK Guide (Hard)
WARNING: English isn't my Native language so please don't flame, be nice i'm trying to help .
I have written this Guide almost a Year Ago back then i was playing on my Old Profile. I got alot of Positive Feedback on TA so I hope this Guide Helps .
Don't copy this Guide without MY Permission. If you want to use this Guide for your Website / other Achievement Pages please ASK and give me Credit for it.
You Obtain Ranks by getting a certain Amount of Points in a Chapter.
The Lowest Rank is D the Highest is G (Godlike)
First things first! before you Start working on your Ranks you have to Complete the Story on any Difficulty.
To Unlock this Achievement you must obtain a G-Rank on all 11 Chapters except Chapter 0.
this is not an Easy Task and may be Easier for some Players while it is Hard for others.
It wasn't Easy for me but it wasn't to Bad either... Estimated Difficulty: 8 / 10
But hey Good News you can Save your Game in a Chapter Multiple Times and you have an Autosave! so make good use of it! without Saving this would be a 9/10.
DO NOT WEAR THE ISHTAR SUITE or you will Void your RANK G!
G RANK Requirements:
Chapter Points (Hidden Bonus)
Chapter 01 = 990,000 (290.000)
Chapter 02 = 1.700.000 (820.000)
Chapter 03 = 2.730.000 (1.100.000)
Chapter 04 = 2.590.000 (1.310.000)
Chapter 05 = 4.100.000 (1.780.000)
Chapter 06 = 1.510.000 (690.000)
Chapter 07 = 3.070.000 (1.170.000)
Chapter 08 = 2.480.000 (1.120.000)
Chapter 09 = 2.090.000 (880.000)
Chapter 10 = 3.830.000 (1.520.000)
Chapter 11 = 2.330.000 (1.070.000)
there is also a Time Bonus but don't worry to much about it, but also try not to waste to much Time.
In Order to Obtain G-Rank I would Recommend that you Focus on getting all Hidden Bonuses while getting as much Points in Combat as you can, also try to Break all Objects and Pick up all Orbs.
- DO NOT Fall
- DO NOT Recover
- DO NOT DIE
- Steal as much Weapons as Possible! (do it on every Enemy to be safe)
- Find all Fruits of Wisdom ( Big Red Question Marks)
If you Fall / lose all your Life / Die / Accidently kill an Enemy without Stealing his Weapon. Quit to the Main Menu and Reload your most Recent Save. Also don't miss a Fruit! I don't know if it is Required to kill all the Enemies in a Chapter so I Disarmed and Killed all of them to be safe.. you should do the same .
Combo Counter: The higher your Counter the more Points you will get but also weaker Attacks gives you less Points so try to use your most Powerful Attacks.
Aerial Attacks: You will get more Points by using Aerial Attacks.
Multi Hits: If you hit 2 or more enemies with your Attacks you get even more Points!
Perfect Guards: Hard to Perform but give you even more Points but don't worry you don't have to be a Master at Guarding to Obtain a G Rank .
The Arch: Good Weapon overall: Try to use Aerial Attacks (Jump X-X-X-X or RB + Direction + X-X-X-X). Jump + hold X works pretty good for Disarming.
The Gale: Ranged Weapon, gives less Points so a High Combo is Recommended. Press X ,short delay , X works good for slower Enemies, RB+X for Close encounters , Jump + Hold X works great for Disarming.
The Vale: to be honest at first i didn't like this Weapon at all, but it is very Powerful and give you lots of Points.
RB+X to stun and mash X works good, Jump RB+ Hold X , Jump + X , holding down X & Release works fine too.
Most of the Enemies won't give you to much trouble but... Armored Enemies can be a real Pain...
Be Aware your Enemy Spawn Depends on which WEAPON you wield...
if you wield an Arch: Gale Enemies will Spawn
if you wield a Gale : Vale Enemies will Spawn
if you wield a Vale : Arch Enemies will Spawn
The hardest Enemies imo, they are fast and Hit Hard...repeatedly... if your not good at Guarding don't get to Close! Two at once can be a Real Pain.
Arch: The Hardest Weapon to fight them because you have to get Close to them, Jump + Hold X Works for Disarming.
Gale: Jump + hold X works great for Disarming.
Vale: Avoid him and wait for his Spinning Attack (looks like Whirlwind in Diablo 2) Jump in the Air and Press RB+ Hold X to Launch them in the Air, now all you have to do is
wait for him to hit the ground and constantly Launch him in The Air with your HOLD X and Release Attack and steal his Weapon. Cheap Strategy but Works. Try to Time your
Jump RB+ Hold X at the Moment he stops Spinning.
Two at Once can be Annoying , try to Guard / Dodge .
Arch: Again Jump + Hold X is your best Bet also RB+X to Launch them in the Air works.
Gale: Jump + Hold X but also Focus on Dodging .
Vale: RB+X & mash X works good but also makes you Vulnerable, Launch attacks as Mentioned before works good.
Arch: Again Jump + Hold X
Gale: Jump + Hold X, the big and Slow Vale Enemies can be easily Destroyed just keep your Distance and Press X ,short delay, and press X again...Rinse and Repeat.
this will insanely Raise your Combo Meter if Performed correctly the Enemies don't stand a chance but don't forget to Disarm them!
Vale: RB+X Mash X works good , launch attacks too
I've watched Videos Recorded by Japanese Players, these guys are really Good at this Game but don't worry you don't have to be as good as they are to obtain Rank G. Please do yourself a Favor and don't try to Fight Naked if your not a Master at Guarding. Try to Adapt some of his Strategy especially in Boss Fights! You can Rack up lot's of Points so Watch Carefully!
Also Watch out for Fruits of Wisdom!
Some of this Videos are Recorded on EXTRA Difficulty.
