    This is more tedious than difficult. You have enough time to destroy the blue head first. Then avoid the attack from the head (your menu is blocked). Learn his grey head's attack time pattern, and use the Cane of Byrna when he would attack!

    Switch quickly between the Ice Rod and Cane. When his shell burns, he attacks in the middle down. Avoid that attack and use the Cane while you now do the final three hits on him. The tediousness is to get to the boss each time you try it.

    For me this one was actually easier without juggling the Cane. I held up-left entering the room until I was vertically aligned with where the fire head extends and could freeze it as it extended. Two quick slashes, *then* switching to the Fire Rod...
    AffablePeafowl 23 Aug 2017 01:11
    ...since, as mentioned, you can't menu during a head's death animation. A quick third slash to kill the fire head, then had the Fire Rod ready to stun the Ice Head and kill with 3 quick slashes and dodged the middle head while the fire head died.

    His 2nd phase is a piece of cake but the long explosion beforehand is a good time to activate the CoB/Cape for safety. His head is vulnerable *briefly* when he emerges. As mentioned, worst part is the walk back if you get hit!

    The walk is short if you remember to use the dungeon exit south of the final rooms to update the mirror respawn location.

    Nice hint, Zandro :)

    Zandro and Zelda Dungeon's suggestion helps, once you get the updated respawn location, Trinexx becomes alot less annoying. Fast forward when trekking back to the boss and normal speed when you get to the fight. If you have the level 4 sword, then each head only takes 2-3 hits to go down. Use the Cane or Cape when needed to avoid the heads attacks. On the final phase use the cape or cane to blitz it.
