As your primary weapon, it is very important that you learn how to utilize the shadow whip effectively. Due to its reach, the shadow whip is great for both crowd control and attacking from a distance as well as starting combos. If you are facing armored enemies such as Riot Police or Dungeon Jailer without Chaos magic, somersault over their heads and counterattack with the somersault whip skill. Shadow daggers can be used to both momentarily stagger enemies and interrupt/cancel their attack. When you are running low on magic for both the void sword and chaos claws, its a good idea to switch to the shadow whip to grind blood orbs from enemies.
