    This takes a lot of grinding!

    Battle of the passwords lol. I got mine up to level 6 with a bunch of horrible, horrible grinding and it's still under 7 days: EXLU OSU5 ZZ0U SPJG. (5th character letter "o", 11th is zero)

    I did this without using a password and the Carmilla boss which takes like 200 hits with the leather whip is the most boring thing I ever did on RA. Don't waste your time and use a password!

    With that being said, grinding to Level 5 was in my case sufficient to beat Dracula.

    That's really a humiliation for dracula.

    Dracula takes FOREVER to kill with this setup. You NEED those 256 Hearts. And even after that, you have to stand in one corner of the stage and spam the shit out of your whip to finish him off.

    The gold dagger can be good, but I just switched to the regular dagger after a while. It does twice the damage of the leather whip and doesn't cost any hearts to use. Combine them and stunlocking Dracula should be a little easier - emphasis on "a little easier", it's just a small help on killing him before he kills you...

    TristanParrish, Thanks for the password! Flame works great against Dracula, the main thing is not to let him fly around the room (or catch him with flame again)

    If you use TristanParrish passwords when attempting the True Belmont achievement, do keep in mind that the amount of days it took Tristan to get to that level still apply. You'll only have two days to get to Dracula's Castle if you're trying to go for it, but I recommend you hold off that one until you complete this one.

    Also holy shit does Dracula take forever to die if you try to just use Sacred Flames on him, I threw over 200 Sacred Flames at him and he didn't die. But when I only used like 5 or so Gold Knifes and stood in the corner turboing the whip button he eventually went down quicker. I'm presuming the damage from the flames depends on what whip you have?
