Trickster and Royal Guard.
Especially when fighting Vergil. That airtrick can be countered with a double trickster - if you push the left stick at the right time Dante can scoot aside and move in behind Vergil in two strokes - and you can block Vergil's hit with Royal Guard. Only once though, he breaks through it pretty easy.
Anyway. Sorry. I'm just happy I can finally post in this board. ^_^
well... it seems to me that trickster it`s the easiest to use, and the most rewarding as well... I first finished the game on trickster and it was pretty hard when I tried a redo but with other styles... i had the impression that i`m a sitting duck... but i most certainly like how flashy the gunslinger is... also swordmaster...I played with these only cuz they look so damn cool
