Who is easier to use? Dante or Vergil? Why?
I say Dante. The biggest and most obvious
reason, I think, is because he has Air Hike
while Vergil does not. I know that in most situations
Air Hike isn't a MUST to survive but
it definitely will still make things a lot
easier. Also, Vergil sometimes tends to go off-target,
mostly when you perform the 6-hit combo with
Force Edge. That has been a reason why I got
unnecessarily hit for no reason a number of
Who do you like using more? Dante or Vergil?
Hmm... I actually think both are really fun.
When DMC3SE first came out, of course Vergil
was the heat of the month, or even more. But
after playing enough of Vergil and thinking
about this question a little deeper, I guess...
DAMN. I'm sorry, I must say they're equal. To
be honest, I was just about to say Dante. But
I continued to think deeply, and I figured that
I like using Vergil just as much. The problem
is with my tendency to stick to only my favorite
weapons for Dante, resulting in the same personal
style of gameplay for the most part, just like
Vergil with the only 3 weapons he has. So even
though Dante has a potentially larger variety
of play style, I mainly stick with one, or two,
hence being right about the same as Vergil with
his 3 devil arms. And I think like most people,
I have my respective Dante and Vergil phases.
At one point I'll keep using Dante so much I
forget about Vergil, and at another I'll use
Vergil too much and forgot about Dante. When
I compare those phases I think I enjoy using
them just the same.
Which is your favorite style for Dante? Why?
Swordmaster. I prefer being up-close-and-personal
and swordmaster's just the way to go. I'm not
saying the other styles like gunslinger and
doppelganger aren't up-close-and-personal but
I still prefer being able to slash rather than
to shoot. I have the mentality where I think
that shooting hurts less than slashing, hence
thinking that shooting is weaker and would naturally
prefer the stronger way. I love royalguard too
but that's only when I go against bosses, especially
Vergil. Against common enemies, I use swordmaster
95% of the time. Since I use the same personal
strategy everytime I fight bosses, it seems
more fun to fight common enemies who don't require
fixed strategies. So in the end, swordmaster
> royalguard. =)
Which is your favorite devil arm for Dante?
This is a tough one. If someone asks me this
months ago, I'll not hesitate to say Rebellion
immediately. But now that I've used the other
weapons more often and tried out different combinations
of combos, I can't say that for sure. I must
say it really depends on the combination of
weapons I choose. For example, I like these
combinations: Rebellion + Cerberus, Agni &
Rudra + Nevan, Rebellion + Nevan and Cerberus
+ Agni & Rudra. The one devil arm I can
say I like the least is Beowulf. For some reason
I just can't get to like it as much, although
it's practically the only devil arm I'll use
in the Vergil battles. I like Nevan and Agni&
Rudra but I can't use them very well, so I suppose
it narrows down to Cerberus and Rebellion. Rebellion
is the standard weapon (Alastor is Rebellion-like)
Dante uses in all the 3 DMC games, so it's natural
that we get most accustomed to it and find it
the easiest and most effecient to use. As much
as I'd love to nominate Cerberus for this, I
think in the end Rebellion still is the weapon
that has 3 of the most important moves to me
- Hightime, Helm Breaker and
Stinger. So, I guess the conclusion
is that... Rebellion will still have
to be the one O_o...
Which is your favorite fire arm for Dante? Why?
Ebony & Ivory. I must say I rarely
use any of the rest. I rarely ever use the gunslinger
style so guns like Artemis and Spiral mean nothing
to me. I use Kalina Ann in the harder modes
but usually I stick with Ebony & Ivory +
Shotgun, but I prefer the handguns between the
two. As for why, I like shooting fast. Although
it can be tiring sometimes, it's fun. When I
shoot I abuse it like hell =P And then, the
handguns don't blow enemies away, which makes
it perfect to use for air combos, which is typical,
but still fun. =) Also, shooting it can keep
you in the air, which is useful for strategic
purposes. So there, pretty self explanatory
Which is your favorite devil arm for Vergil?
Another tough one. Cos' really, all of Vergil's
devil arms rock!! I like all 3 weapons the same
for their respective moves, but if I really
have to choose one, I think I'll go for Yamato.
Yamato is just way too slick and wicked. I don't
think you'll find anyone who says otherwise.
=P It may be slow for a start when you're not
used to it, but once that is overcome, Yamato
is just deadly. It has few moves, just like
the other devil arms, but those few moves rock.
Of course, I must say it will feel quite ineffecient
to be using Yamato alone without Force Edge
or Beowulf's combination since there is not
really any way to use Yamato only to
perfection. But seriously, both Force Edge and
Beowulf rock just the same O_o I really thought
hard about this and I think all 3 are just equally
Which is your top favorite move for Dante? Why?
Man, it's so hard to pick the TOP favorite.
Dante has many moves that are really useful,
some of the top being Stinger, Hightime,
Helm Breaker (the 3 usual), Killer
Bee, Satellite, Sword Dance
and Reverb Shock. Most of these moves
are based on their practicality. Naturally,
I use Stinger and Hightime
the very most cause of their ability to cover
a great distance quickly and to throw enemies
up in the air. I love air combos more than anything,
so Hightime is a definite must, especially
when dealing with Hells like Pride, Lust, Sloth
and Gluttony. I would have loved to vote for
Feedback and Crazyroll (Nevan's
swordmaster moves) but I realize the importance
of Hightime and how much I rely on it. Therefore,
the verdict comes to Hightime.
Which is your top favorite move for Vergil?
Since I already voted for Hightime
under Dante, I won't vote for it again since
it'll be meaningless. With Vergil, I know exactly
which moves are my bestest favorite, and I bet
it's probably the same for most of you out there.
Aerial Rave and Starfall.
Now, the problem is to decide which of the two
I prioritize. I depend on both moves a lot.
Not only are they reliable, they're also the
2 strongest moves. Performing rebounds for both
moves are also really fun. So, so far I would
say they're equal. BUT, when I think about which
I feel happier about between Rave and
Starfall rebounds, my answer comes
to Aerial Rave. Although I can't
do it properly and successfully all the time,
it feels really nice to be able to do it when
I'm successful. For that, my favoritism for
Aerial Rave is an inch higher than
Starfall. However, I think that the
move that pwns all, really, is Spiral Swords.
=P Just think about how much that move pwns/pwned
you in Dante Must Die mode Mission 20. XP
Which is stronger? Dante or Vergil? Why?
Gameplay-wise, I say Vergil. Everyone
has to admit, Vergil's attacks are way higher
in damage, especially Starfall. That
move inflicts damage like no other, it's almost
ridiculous. Other crazy-damage moves are Aerial
Rave and Judgement Cut. Dante
certainly has a lot more moves but none of them
damage as much as Vergil's attacks. Dante's
Killer Bee is probably his strongest
move, but Vergil's version of Killer Bee
- Starfall, is at least 1.5 times stronger
since you can upgrade it to level 2. Vergil's
only projectile weapon, Summoned Swords, are
also highly damaging as compared to most of
Dante's guns, and you can even shoot it anytime!
