Updated on August 20, 2012

Darksiders 2 Level Up Skills Guide

In Darksiders 2, the main and thoroughly enjoyable part of the game is in the build up and level up of the hero horseman Death so that he can become more powerful and wield a variety of combo moves and wrath moves in battle. The visual effects of his powers in battle become better and flashier and tough boss enemies fall like leaves in front of the mighty reaper. As the hero gains experience, he will level up and gain wrath moves. He will also level up and gain the ability to use items and equipment reserved only for the high levels. This will provide a guide and synopsis of the wrath skills that Death picks up as he levels up in the game. This will allow the hero to plan and envisage the hero that he wants to become as he faces the ultimate enemies in the game.

The wrath skills that the reaper has access to can be divided into Harbinger and Necromancer.

  • aegis guard - the hero summons a necromancy shield to increase his defense and resistance.
  • fiery souls - ghouls add fire damage to the enemies.
  • death's allure - this is crucial as it allows the hero to direct the ghouls to attack the enemies so that the hero has critical amount of time to do what he needs to do, be it healing or attack the main boss.
  • reflect - the hero's aegis guard shield reflects a portion of the damage back to the enemies.
  • grave defense - increases the hero's arcane attribute.
  • corpse explosion - ghouls summoned will explode when defeated or when the exhume ability ends, damaging nearby enemies.

  • grounding - lightning threads arc from the hero, damaging enemies.
  • heralds of death - crows summoned by murder restore reaper energy to the hero with every strike.
  • death guard - the hero's aegis guard lasts longer and requires less effort to summon.
  • ice crows - crows summoned add ice damage to the enemies.
  • frenzy - the hero's wrath is used summon projectiles to damage enemies.

Darksiders Combine Both Sides of the Wrath Skill Tree

Although it may be quite good to specialize, the hero may also want to consider combining both sides of the wrath skill tree to create both a damage intensive character and a necromancer type character who will not be overwhelmed by loneliness in the dungeons. Undeads will be the hero's best friends in times of extreme dangers........
