Chapter X: Paradiso - A Sea of Stars is the tenth chapter of Bayonetta. In this chapter, Bayonetta progresses deeper into the heart of Paradiso, coming face to face with new and dangerous angels.
Paradiso - Sea of Stars
Verse 1You start off with a cutscene, once its finished you will face a trio of Joy. Recommended weapons (if you have collected all the LPs so far) is Odette and Onyx Roses, or Sai Fung (if you have completed 100 chapters). Use Odette and Onyx Roses' Charge Modifier in order to freeze and stun lock Joy. This combo can make it easier to land large numbers of attacks as well as provide you with more speed to cross the battlefield (Panther Within is also quite useful, Bat Within will keep you from taking damage).
After you have defeated the trio jump down the hole. When you land you will be in a plaze with a group of Affinity (Harmony on Hard). After you defeat them you must find the other cogs to make the floor's mechanism work. For this you will need to travel down the paths connected to the plaza, defeat any angels there, then wail on the wall (the strange metal wall you had encountered previously are actually a type of Golem, hence why they break and reform).
Once you have broken down the Golem doors they will reform as cogs in the center. After a few cogs are in place you will be attacked by Grace & Glory (Gracious & Glorious on Hard). Odette and Onyx Roses are once more recommended. After you have defeated them you will need to return to the mechanism and use it. This will rotate the entire platform allowing you access to a new area.
Alfheim serves as Verse 3.
Run up the new path. Soon you will reach a large gap. Use Beast Within to cross it (either double jump using the Panther or fly using the Crow). Once you are across you will go down some stairs then meet a trio of Harmony (there are 5 on Hard). If you use the Torture Attack you will gain access to the chainsaw, you pick it up like any weapon on the ground; it too has a limited number of uses.
After Harmony is dead you can continue onwards. Once you enter the area you will be greeted by a miniature green Fortitudo known as Courage. Courage does not follow the same attack pattern as Fortitudo. Instead it will attack head on. Courage will stomp and breath fire when you are close by, it will not fly. You need to attack the glowing orb on the body.After you have defeated Courage a clone of Temperantia will appear. This one is known as Temperance. Temperance follows what Temperantia did, stayed at a distance to attack. The attacks are punches, bullets and lasers. Use your guns to do chip damage then when the punch comes in, dodge it to activate Witch Time and attack it as quickly as possible. After a good chunk of health is gone Temperance will fall onto the platform, attack the orb on the forehead. After a few seconds it'll get up and start attacking again.
Now one of Temperance's attacks is a sort of body slam against the platform then shoots bolts out of the eyes; when this happens attack the forehead for more damage. The usual cycle of attacks will continue until you take off a decent chunk of health; this will cause Temperance to fall onto the platform for a few seconds leaving the orb open for attack.
Lt. Col. Kilgore and Shuraba makes a good combo. Kilgore for powerful long ranged attacks and Shuraba for quick but decent attacks up close. Pulley's Butterfly is useful in this section, if you summon the butterflies before the laser you can save yourself from being hit.
After you defeat Temperance you need to head towards the building. Once you get close a large tentacle will hit it causing it to spin. You must get inside by waiting for the entrance to be hear you then jump into the building. Once inside you will face a group of Enchants (5 on Hard).
After you have defeated Enchant you will need to go to the wall at the opposite end of the area you came in from. Break down the wall and you'll still be spinning but now you're outside. There is a circular platform you will need to jump to. When you see it then jump down. When you land you will come face to face with a trio of Kinship.
Dodge their homing missiles and attack the orb on the deck of the ship. You will still need to avoid the fire support from the other Kinships. Be careful, between the homing missles and claws, the ships have another weapon. A laser that fires from the face on the bow. Its easy to evade but can do a lot of damage if you aren't paying attention.
Verse 8After you have defeated Kinship the path will open up. Hop across the golden platforms into and open area and a hallway filled with tentacles. By the door is a statue of Fearless/Fairness, you can destory these for halos. Once you are in the hallway you will need to dodge your way through the tentacles and to the other side where you will see more statues. You can destroy this one as well.
As you go down stairs and a golden set of Grace & Glory known as Gracious and Glorious will break out of their statues to fight you. The combo of Onyx Roses and Odette is recommended. This fight can be rather difficult because you will now be in close quarters with the pair and you cannot use Witch Time (unless you counter with the Moon of Mahaa-Kahlaa or possess Selene's Light) so if you choose you could wear Evil Harvest Rosary so that it does damage in place of the lost Witch Time. If you have/use Rodin then your best attack is to use the spinning claws (or you can just pick the claws up after you have defeated one).
Alfheim serves as Verse 9.
Verse 10 (Optional)
As you arrive at the Gates of Hell portal smash the wall in front of it, this will open the way to a circular platform. Use Panther Within to make the jump to it, on this platform is a another set of Gracious and Glorious, use the tactics from Verse 8 but take note that you have a lot more breathing room before and during the fight. The last treasure chest is also on the platform after the fight is over. Jump back to the main hallway after you are done.
Verse 11Take a left at the Gates of Hell and jump down. Here you will see an Umbran Witch/Lumen Sage statue set. Behind you will be a pair of golden Beloveds (you will fight another pair on Hard). Since you are fighting two at once you will need to focus on one specifically then go for the other. After one is defeated another will spawn. After the trio has been taken care of you will also see a pair of golden Inspired.
A trick to use here, is to remain in the water after you have defeated Beloved. When you knock Inspired out of the sky and once it gets back up it will float on the water's surface, its attacks cannot hit you but you can hit it if you shoot it; if you use your guns and target it then you will damage it. Defeat one then activate the statues to get a Witch Time, use it against the Inspired. After you defeat three of them the Verse will end. Just jump to the platform where the angelic border was.
