I've been hitting the health fountains whenever they pop up. Magic is more important than health to me, so I don't want a fountain sitting green very long. I admit I don't know if that helps me get more magic or not. But... I think so.
I also prefer Ares Fists vs Hercules rather than Ares Might. Two shots is usually enough, but you've also got a good chance of picking up another fountain in the final battle.
Hey! I'm the Editor/Creator of IGN's TotG/Multiplayer info wiki! If you want me to add what all you put into the IGN wiki guide just email me the additions and where you would want them to go to email@example.com feel free to do so! I have to update the wiki anyway. especially the DoLS because I've learned new strat!
Just a tip I'd mention; not sure if it's in the guide or the link to IGN's site for their guide.
- When you're facing the rideable monsters like the cereberus/cyclops, if you're riding them and there are no other monsters around to kill (i.e. the others are all dead), then press circle to jump off and slam them into the ground.
I've seen quite a few ppl in co-op continue to ride the cerberus/cyclops even though there's nothing else to kill. I've also seen seen some ppl even ride them around when they're the last monster, while I chase behind trying to do some damage to it. Just jump off at that point and help your teammate get the final kill... saves some time that way.
But I rarely ride monster. I'd rather kill them the faster I can.
You were always Zeus' Favorite!
