    Parable With Sunshine is NOT easier than Bloody Tears, it's harder. All you people who got this achievement even when taking damage are lucky lol. This achievement should have 2x or 3x the difficulty points compared to Bloody Tears. Please fix this.

    Wow what a ridiculous fight 😂. I trained this literally for two Days. The stupid flying Orb with the Chicken in it ruined 80% my attempts. I did a Recording of all Boss Fights. Coming soon.
    I need a Break.😭🥲

    Be sure to pay attention to Dracula’s health; his use of the orb depends on how much health he has left. If he has 12 or 6 units of health remaining, he will always use the orb.

    I WAS able to find a way to consistently bypass the first orb attack. As soon as Dracula’s health is depleted by three units, attack Dracula twice more, then wait for him to attack again. Time your next attack so you hit him as soon as his fireball comes out; any sooner than that, and he’ll use the orb instead. After this, Dracula will lose a fourth unit of health, which would normally put him in orb attack range. However, if you quickly attack him twice as soon as he reappears, he’ll skip the orb attack and immediately transition into the fire pillar phase.

    I wasn’t able to find a similar strategy for getting past the second orb (keeping track of health is awkward when dealing with the more difficult fire pillar phase), but maybe you can.

    The "orb skip" tip was of great help. As for the rest of the battle, don't give up. Sometimes, the RNG helps and the orbs go away without doing much.
    CassetteCobra 7 Jan 2024 00:27
    ^ The orb skip is extremely useful for the fight. Adding to that for the fire phase, I suggest at least whipping at least one of the two fire creatures as soon as they spawn to give yourself some breathing room to dodge and strike. While you can't really avoid the second orb phase, try to at least attack Dracula when you're around the corners as the orbs go there less.

    I've definitely gotten luckier than most people in completing this but I have to hand half of it to the useful tips above. This took me hour or two of attempts? All I have left is the excruciating annoying deathless cheevo and the no continue 2nd quest one.

    The orb remained during his second phase, that is the game saying "Yeah, fuck you"

    Also, what is the pattern of his second phase?
    CassetteCobra 4 May 2024 05:56
    I recommend jumping and whipping when he's about to throw out the Orb to get rid of it quickly.
    Moshe613 4 May 2024 06:14
    I meant the second phase where he has 5 HP left and tries to strike you with lightning
    Moshe613 4 May 2024 07:48
    Got this. His second phase is just random, you can whip him 2 times before he disappears but it is too risky, the lightning is very fast and I lost this achievement because of that. So whip him once and keep watching the upper screen to know where to stop

    This was stressful haha
