Best Skills to Unlock
V is a very special character and unique in combat, where he prefers to let his demons fight while he stands back. He completely relies on his demons to do the fighting and this is where your focus of skill unlocks should be.
Here are what we think are the best skills to unlock for V:
Flank Attack: This skill allows Griffon to charge at enemies and launching them into the air. This is a great skill to have unlocked and is not that expensive as well.
Quickplay: This is a basic skill but can help you a lot as V can surf on a shadow that is casted by shadow itself. This is a great skill to allow V to move around rather than just sprinting.
Breakthrough: This skill allows Shadow to go towards the enemies quickly and deal quick damage.
Blockage 2: This is a great skill that can be used attacking or defense as Griffon will release three pillars of lightning towards the enemy.
Nightmare Combo B: This is also a good skill to have as it gives Nightmare a wider area to cover in its attacks. this comes in very hand in combats that can be overwhelming and when you rely on heavy and sweeping attacks.
