14 Sep 5:04 2020
the wolf in the entrance achiev is kind cunfuse, maybe ill try in castle 2
14 Sep 13:47 2020
It must be done in the first castle, stay in the east room near the door, expect to accumulate between 5 and 6 zombies, stop the time with the clock, run with the wolf towards the entrance.
14 Sep 13:47 2020
You will kill the zombies in this first room, after you pass the rock room, you will be able to kill 1 more zombie and some Blood Zombie, in the end, you must calculate your jump to kill the Owl that will be the last kill
16 Sep 7:57 2020
This is a superb set that showcases a lot of cool aspects of the game's mechanics and some things that might be overlooked otherwise.(screw tyrfing for being so slow though)
29 Sep 18:56 2020
Can we get sets you can actually 200% with a normal life? Final boss damageless is enough bs but unarmed with no familiars, spells and attack below 105? Why?
6 Oct 13:05 2020
I did use spells on dracula
6 Oct 17:18 2020
Dracula is not hard even without spells. Especially with 105 ATK. He is unlikely to survive until the end of his first attack cycle with these stats.
17 Oct 17:22 2020
whats the catch of galamoph damageless? it is impossible to avoid the attack where he throws lightning at the ground unless you use morphs. this set is kind of a headscratch for me, seems quite literally impossible unless you are doing it toolassiste
17 Oct 17:44 2020
Well, the challenge must be made with the Alucard's Sword, and it is the key to the trophy. When executing the special command (down, forward, attack) during the animation of the attack, Alucard is invincible.
17 Oct 17:45 2020
In the final frames of the animation, it is possible to execute the command again before Alucard's invincibility ends, then, with a little training, you will understand the exact time to repeat the command and attack several times while maintaining
17 Oct 17:45 2020
a permanent invincibility cycle (which happens during the animation of the attack). Use save state and load state for training purposes and use only the special attack from Alucard's Sword, do not use any other attack as it will be risky and unprodu
17 Oct 21:41 2020
i see thanks, i figured it would be something like this but didnt know if it was possible
19 Oct 15:04 2020
in the "no longer a horse..." achievement am i supposed to get a hit off with each technique? how am i suposed to hit a slide and not be hit?
19 Oct 15:31 2020
Press the attack button twice so that Richter makes the Slide Kick (in the air) so when hit the boss hold the attack to make the back flip, there is no need to hit it as a slide
20 Oct 2:14 2020
You can also get invincibility with the hell fire spell
24 Oct 9:01 2020
WOW THIS SET LOOK DIFFICULT! BUT WILL MAKE ME POPULAR WITH WOMEN! I WILL MASTER ONE DAY!
