    ??? How is the achievement unfair?Jesus, this Death is probably the easiest I've ever fought.You can even manipulate his second form a bit so it's the safest second form of Death you'll ever encounter.

    This one can be a little tricky due his first phase when the scythes around can easily hit you, unfair may be a little exaggerated, but this is so far the hardest damageless in that set
    TindalosKeeper 3 Dec 2021 17:31
    This will sound crazy, but I was really never threatened by the scythes at all. Juste's slide hitbox is quite big, so you can hit scythes coming to you from the front, and avoid those coming from the top or back. I had more trouble with Maxim, lol.

    The first phase takes some patience. When he takes his second form, put on Crushing Stone and use fully charged attacks which reach far and do decent damage. This strategy worked nicely for me.

    Finally done! Hard as hell but an strategy is working, you can slide under his head while he getting on the ceiling of the room. A jump right from his tale can be risky. First phase is RNG of Hell^^

    Wish I had poked my head in here first but just to reiterate what others have said; you will level up twice from this boss fight so go in at level 34.

    I won and unlocked the achievement at level 36, as long as you don't go over the level cap it doesn't matter if you go up two levels at the end of the battle

    A handful of the bosses I was able to do on the first try, but this guy right here took me almost 4 hours.

    Crushing Stone is perfect for this fight. I had Lucky Ring and Charm on for a big luck boost and was getting around 300 from crits. Once you get the pattern for both phases down, it's not too bad.

    I wish I knew you got 2 levels by the end of the fight

    I managed to unlock this starting at level 36 and ending at 38. I've also checked the achievement code and the 'level condition' has a hit count, meaning it is not programmed to reset/stop to be true if you reach at 37 or above, it actually stays active the entire time. Every boss challenge in this set works like that

    Finally after 3 hours of trying I got it, hard as hell achievement, no doubt once I finish this set I never plan to complete it once again

    It bears mentioning since it may not be immediately obvious, in the second phase you can safely stand on his body, spine, thing or whatever. Only his head and tail can hurt you. Using this it's actually really easy, crushing stone's damage and reach are insanely helpful for both phases. This isn't really hard as much as it's frustratingly random, and only the first phase is a threat anyway.
    qAkiba 25 Nov 2023 15:53
    It's so tempting to be aggressive in this fight but really seems like the best strategy is take it slow and wait for him to do one of the attacks where he stops spawning sickles so you can just whip him for a bit. Chasing him around and smacking him off screen is satisfying as hell but more often than not doesn't end well lol
