Qliphoth Roots

Qliphoth Roots

Qliphoth Roots is first encountered as the level boss of Mission 1.


Vergil trivializes this with his destructive JJC and DG. This is the same with Nero on Overture and Gerbera.
  • Devil Hunter Usually attacks on the third detonation of Overture.
  • Human Attacks after the first detonation and usually dies after Overture explosion.
  • NG+ behaves slightly different due to CS'3 start up.
  • Vergil needs to get close to Qliphoth before summoning DG for Max Damage. He can kill the roots in NG+ with Dragon Breaker → Aerial Cleave → OverDrive while making sure that PS is active with Heavy Rain Blades and Spiral Blades

To save more time against this boss as vergil Sequential Judgement Cuts would be ideal
