Your experience playing with V‘s familiars will prove beneficial when you using Dante to face them:

  • Griffon remotely attacks using lightning strikes.
  • Shadow freely changes its appearance, turning into a blade or needle to deal melee attacks.
  • Nightmare possesses unmatched power and unbeatable durability. It attacks surrounding enemies with physical attacks and pulsating laser beams.

You can use Gunslinger to attack Griffon, Royal Guard to fight against Shadow, and Swordmaster to deal with Nightmare. Use Trickster to either approach the targets or to avoid their attacks.

After defeating Shadow the first time, go to the area marked in the image above. Destroy the Demon Tree Blood Clots and defeat the enemies at the opened area to reach the blue orb fragment.
