    Advice: Don't select the unicorn card, I've completed this challenge with the unicorn card selected, and doesn't work. (I didn't use the effect)

    I'm curious if there are more rules to this because I made it through several times without the cleansing, and it didn't trigger. Are we not allowed to heal? I already defeated Camilla, are my chances lost?

    Same made the run and dont even have the unicorn card? Im I not allowed to die or use save point in the waterways?

    Odd ran all the way back and noticed the challenge symbol activate on the right bottom screen, went up to save and back down to start challenge and it is not activating now running in and out of the room with the statue.

    1st try. I used only Jupiter+Thunderbird (halves damage from blood water) and Jupiter+Mandragora. I didn't use a save point.

    Did not pop for me, either. I'm not sure what's being checked, but it's certainly flaky. It's a bummer, too, because this is a one-try-per-run thing, I went back and did the waterway after killing Camilla and before getting Cleansing and it still didn't pop.

    Honestly, this should be simplified all the way down to "kill Camilla without the Cleansing". Same result, much more reliable check.

    Camilla must be alive, this requirement exists because having the Roc Wing turns this challenge into a joke
    GoleMMan 19 Oct 2023 14:22
    But to kill Camilla you first have to go through the Waterway anyway, right? Barring full-on OOB sequence breaks, at least. As it is, it creates this scenario where you are very likely to accidentally break an unreported check (I suspect most often saving and quitting), then kill Camilla and lock yourself out of the achievement for the entire playthrough. If you are able to sequence break into getting the Roc Wing without going through the Waterway you are probably good enough to get through the Waterway.

    IMO, reliable triggers should be prioritized over glitch safeguards, as a general design rule. It's better to have a few people cheese it (and again, AFAIK killing Camilla requires completion of the challenge unless you're breaking the game to extreme degrees) than fail to grant the achievement to casual players who did the required steps and will think the set is broken. Especially on a challenge like this, where you get one attempt per run and have to grind all the way back from the start of the game to retry.

    Wasn't too bad actually, only problem was learning the route.
    FabinSS 13 Jan 2024 19:03
    Oh ok, you can recover your health at the save room but you can't die, so just recover and don't save till the last room.

    Jupiter + Golem works wonders here, if you get frozen the invulnerability will have an enormous duration.

    Getting this cheevo was not as hard rather than killing camilla at level 29 ๐Ÿ™ƒ

    It triggered for me! I had previously tried it once briefly and died. I had reset the game instead of clicking continue, must be why it still worked :). I was scared this was a one shot deal and would have to start a new game and whatnot. I used Jupiter+Golem (Invicibility duration) and Jupiter+Mandragora (stand still/heal) like someone mentioned above and it worked wonders. I did not save at all, followed a youtube video that showed the proper way to the boss door, and each time I died I reset as well instead of Continue. It seems pretty consistent. Hope it helps others! Cheers
