How to get easy Soul Eater Ring and money
: Get the Mimic soul and go to the Clock Tower. There is a save room with a spike pit next to it at the bottom right corner of the Clock Tower. The Mimic soul will usually give you 500 gold each time you are hit by the spikes. Whenever you get low on health, go to the save room, heal, and repeat.
How to get easy experience: Equip yourself in the A set with Dracula's Tunic or Demon Mail, Gungner the Last Spear (recommended due to its reach and does not lose important souls) or Valhmanway Sword, and the Shaman Ring. In the Soul part, equip the Imp soul in Bullet, the Black Panther in Guardian, and the Mothman in Enchant. In set B, have all the same except for the Chaos ring, the Succubus bullet soul. Go to the large falling trail near Lost Village (in front of Yoko's shop there is an entrance where you blow up the ceiling in the fountain). Then, go to the end. Go right there and you will see an Iron Golem. With set A, use the Imp Soul and the weapon you selected to kill him faster. When you run low on magic, change to set B with X and replenish fast with the Chaos Ring. If you run low in health, use the Succubus Soul to get life from the ghosts on the right and replenish. Go from right to left (from the ghosts' side) with the Phanter soul to go faster. Kill the Iron Golem to get 3,500 experience points each time.
How to get easier Boss Rush mode: Activate the Devil Soul and use the Valmanway Sword. You will take down all the Bosses in less than five minutes.
How to defeat Dmitri: If you have a Witch Soul, let Dmitri copy it. The projectile attack from this soul is fairly easy to avoid and will make this fight a lot easier.
How to defeat the Iron Golem: Use the Imp soul. It switches HP damage to MP damage.
How to attack faster: If you have a heavy weapon like a great sword, slow attacks can be a problem. To hit the enemy twice quickly, stand very close to them and attack. Then just as it connects, press L to dash backwards. As soon as it stops, you can attack again; and if you are still close enough it should hit. This is quicker than just attacking twice normally.

The Leave level boundary game glitch:
This trick requires the Succubus Soul and the Cutall weapon. Go to the last save location in the Abyss and do the special attack on the very end of the wall, not near the door Keep doing the special move until you fall out of the level. You can get back to the save room. If you have a 100% map completion, you will uncover about 56% more if you manage to get back in the save room. Note: If this is done, you will make the final Boss impossible to defeat. After you defeat him, he will just respawn
