    Does this need to be in specifically that order? Killed ice head first with fire rod, then fire with ice rod, all hammer on the body, no pop.
    TheMysticalOne 22 May 2023 21:39
    Yes. Specifically fire head using only ice rod first. Do not damage ice head until fire head is dead.

    I should read things first...seriously. Lol

    You'll need at least one magic bottle with magic recharge potion for this. Keep this in mind in case you're doing a bottleless run.
    KojiroS 28 May 2023 23:46
    You need way more than one bottle. The flame head is tanky AF if you only use the ice rod.
    MuffinsMcDanish 29 May 2023 02:38
    Hitting it with the rod once makes it more susceptible to further attacks, so if you keep attacking quickly with the rod it dies fast and uses the magic meter more efficiently. It doesn't hurt to have more potions on backup though.

    Tried to do what Muffin suggested but it didn't work out for me. The Fire Head is simply way too durable to do this with only 1 magic meter, I spammed the item button as fast as I could but I only had 3 magic shots left after I destroyed the fire head.

    So for those coming for the revision, I recommend bringing at least 3 bottles. 1 for magic and 2 for healing. Or both if you want the Blue Potion. The final phase does 4 hearts of damage each hit, and by this point of the game if you've been aiming for both this cheev and the one where you need to beat Turtle Rock first, you'll have 13 heart containers. So that's alot of damage to avoid. Fortunately the snake body is easy to move around and get hits in if you trap it in a loop.
    CassetteCobra 2 Jun 2023 19:52
    The healing is also for getting through the dungeon, as there's those bouncing enemies and chain chomps that deal 3-4 hearts of damage so watch out for them. The fire bars are also annoying to deal with.

    Once you've beaten the boss and unlocked the cheev, reset the game and play the dungeon again so you can continue towards the bottleless run.

    Do you have the 1/2 magic meter? I feel like that's also useful.

    @CassetteCobra @MuffinsMcDanish
    Nice tips overall, I'll just add some more for saving those potions for the boss. I'd even recommend magic over health for them.

    Quick use of the Magic Cape can help with the Chain Chomps and fire bars, the only red Hardhat Beetle I remember is a bit out of the way (iirc it guards a chest), there are plenty of Anti-Fairies that you can turn into regular Fairies with Magic Powder, and the Pokey-like enemies insta-die to Bombos Medallion. I think the Fire Rod can work just as well, but Bombos always hits and also kills other enemies.
    All this eats the magic bar a bit, but with the refills throughout the level you shouldn't need to use potions unless you REALLY mess up, for Anti-Fairies it's better to turn them than to get hit and lose magic anyway, and there's a full magic refill on a pot right before the boss (take it after creating the platform).

    Unfortunately, though, I found out the hard way you need a bottle for this achievement, even the 1/2 magic upgrade isn't enough... Leaving it for another run

    For those doing a bottleless run, save, get some bottles, get potions, get it, then reset. Yes, you will need to do the dungeon twice but it saves you a whole play through.
