The guide is written in a slightly confusing way but the picture they put after the description is what convinced me I didn't read it quite right. I'm not too angry at the writer lol. They put a damn picture there to show what you should be looking at, so it's really my fault. But I did the same thing you did. Now I'm on Stage 2 of White Hard after starting Black, so I'm getting there. Then I can start DmC.
