    This takes about 30 bombs to do, so be sure to get the capacity upgrades before attempting it.

    Master throwing the Bombs into the cluster of eyes when they gather.

    This cheev is the only time Vitreous is actually a challenge. Making an extremely easy boss into a mild threat. Don't underestimate this boss when doing this challenge.

    Heavybass's strategy on throwing the bombs into the cluster is sound. Throw the bombs in the middle of them all for the most hits. When Vitreous comes up to fire his laser, go to the sides to avoid them as his lasers never go there. The more eyeballs go down, the less time you get to throw bombs before he fires another laser.

    Once the eyeballs are down, just arrow away. Easy second phase.

    Second phase is trivial. Hardest part I found with this was juggling with other achievements (no bottles, zelda first) as I was relatively frail.

    Takes a lot of bombs so best to reset after an attempt rather than mirror out and restock on bombs. The run is pretty long through Misery Mire so it's pretty annoying to retry.

    If you time it well, you can just drop the bomb without throwing it once there are 1 or 2 eyes left. Done correctly, the eye will run right into the explosion. Wasted quite a few bombs before I realized this, but otherwise all the above was a solid help
