Still chipping away at DMC, im on mission 7 now which seems like a bit of a pain :/ even worse I have found a secret mission and it seems I cant just progress through the map (guessing the secret mission is a compulsory thing before I can be let through?)
I found this strategy for that Secret Mission: Strategy: Keep jumping in and out between the two Kyklops to bait them into spewing rocks at each other. Try to linger for *just* long enough to make sure that the rock attack hits the other Kyklop, as, if you jump away immediately, the Kyklop will turn away from its mate to track your position instead. DT whenever you have it. Don't use guns or melee attacks of any kind, as you will automatically fail. Try to stick to the corner with the blue door, as that way you can see both Kyklops. If one or both of them go on a jumping spree, run and jump until it's over (Air Hike is a big help here), then get back to baiting them into spewing rocks at each other again. As soon as one Kyklop has died, collect the blue orb and exit.

But I don't think it's a mandatory Secret Mission. I don't think any of them are really required. And btw you can just exit through a nearby door to bypass Phantom's cat-and-mouse chases, but if you can beat him you get 500 Red Orbs.

And here's to avoid the Secret Mission if it gets too frustrating (perfectly understandable, even I bypassed it at first XD )

Mission 7 begins after Dante has just added the Guiding Light to his item
collection. Your goal is to bring this key to the sun inscription in the
Castellan Bedroom before the Guiding Light drains Dante's life. Slowly, but
surely it is. Start backtracking and head back to the lion head door you came
from. The door is protected by three Sin Scythes that will attack from
behind. They're rather tough; just don't let them hurt Dante, or it'll
shorten the time you have. Must I always tell you to check the Enemies & Boss
Encyclopedia every time there is a new enemy? I guess so. See the Enemies &
Boss Encyclopedia for details on how to scrunch up this bunch. Or you can use
the shotgun and go trigger-happy.

====== OPEN A NEW PATH ======

Strike the dial to activate the elevator and ride it up. Descend back into
the bedroom, then use the Guiding Light in the appropriate place. You end
the mission, but you don't immediately kick into the next mission. Instead,
there's a little intermission that allows you to take your time and complete
some things you've neglected to do before.

You find yourself on an overhang high above the main entrance hall. Jumping
across the gap and going through the other door initiates Mission 8, but you
don't want to do that yet unless you're prepared.

-Also, at the Staircase you can just go through the door to avoid fighting those Marionettes/Bloody Marys. I always end up doing that.

Your tears don't fall, they crash around me
Her conscience calls the guilty to come home
The moments die, I hear no screaming
The visions left inside me are slowly fading
Would she hear me if I called her name?
Would she hold me if she knew my shame?

Awesome thanks! I worked out that I didnt need to be chased by Phantom even though that took me long enough to work out lol saying that i had to start again once and I missed the door one time while Phantom was chasing but I escaped anyway XD

Ok lol im so stupid i must have messed up somewhere because last time the door was blocked off but I guess it was because I didnt kill everything (minus the secret mission bosses) on that floor. Mission 7 is now done! Where it said "but you dont want to do that yet unless you're prepared" makes me feel very nervous lol

lol Did he get in a few magma mouth blasts off before you found the door? I think it was my step-brother that showed me it was actually possible to kill him when he just got tired of running and experimented. XD It is pretty annoying after a lot of being chased and trapped by Lava Brain >< Or at least when seems to be trapped a lot of the time. XD

It does get interesting though. I liked that you could move inbetween Missions even though it was to get from one door to another it was still kewl. They didn't do that in the later ones. Good luck in Mission 8! :D I think that's where you finally confront Phantom but I could be wrong. I've been killing him in the first encounter after acquiring the Pride of Lion to rack up Red Orbs and get all Alastor skills and Blue/Purple Orbs. XD Kinda gets repetitive but it's a system I've been doing to get prepped as early as possible. lol 500 Red Orbs after he melts into the ground and takes off makes it totally worth it. ^^

Phantom was so much easier the second time round! I think that was because 1) I knew what I was doing 2) the combat area was more open spaced so I could see a lot better in terms of incoming attacks. Killed him first time :D

NICE!! :D Seems like you're a natural with it. ^^ Can't remember how many times I tried but I know I got frustrated with him my first time and lost, maybe more than once. XD

I recently got the MMO itch again, and since modern MMOs are kinda terrible I looked a bit into other ones. I just started playing Neverwinter which seems alright so far, although I got 2 items that require me to buy keys to be able to open....so I'm worried it's going to start trying to force microtransactions in front of my face. If it does then I'll just move on to something else. Kinda interested in the idea of "Aion Classic" although I've never played Aion

Play ff14! If you've not played before there is a free trial up to level 60 and the end of the first expansion pack. The only thing it limits you on is the amount of gil and storage, and reduces some of your social aspects (can't form your own party, but can be invited to one for example) as far as trials goes it's pretty damn generous!

I played that game for just over 2 months but I really couldn't get into it.

I just uninstalled Neverwinter so now I'm looking for something to play again
