    cute but kind of awful in that the curse can just cause you to whiff and get hit

    Jump attacking seems to be the way to go, took a few resets to get it down pat.

    The key to this is actually ducking. First curse the doppelganger without getting hit. After that, stay crouched and only move closer to him when he uses his jump+dagger attack. When he touches the slope on either side he will turn into a bat, so

    Make sure to run left occasionally so he never backs up into the right slope. In all of my attempts, the Doppelganger never used a crouching dagger throw. This is the safest method, since it doesn't matter if your attack fails since he can't hit you.

    na verdade é um set incrível, faz você fazer coisas e desafios interessantes que você não fazeria normalmente, como usar a Red Rust, e para mim os sets do RetroAchievements deviam ser assim, incentivar a fazer coisas que normalmente não teria recompensa, e ter a partir das conquistas

    I think when making achievements, a good question to ask yourself is "is it fun?" In this case, there's a whole lotta nothing going on in this battle and you have to reset over and over. So the answer is no. I hope this isn't how all these are gonna be.

    Yeah...this was a miserable achievement due to the nature of the red rust.

    Here is my clip on how to do it:

    Pretty simple, just wait for the doppel to jump and react with a jump attack, when the doppel get cornered keep the attention to react to the bat swing...

    The issue with the jump strat is that the Red Rust can jam, so you're jumping straight into the Doppelganger, who can deal contact damage. If you try to back up with the whiff, you'll still be too close and he'll land a slash on you.

    I can recommend doing this achievement on Luck mode, because there is a chance the boss dies in three hits. :D

    Achei que eu era o único que ficava contando os números de Hit XD
    buraconerd 23 Jan 2024 17:59
    Tudo que eu precisei saber pra fazer: são 19 hits - começa a luta abaixado, quando o doppel pular vc aproxima e ataca. O primero hit vai dar curse, ele não vai mai usar a espada contra você. Agora é só ficar abaixado esperando o pulo pra atacar novamente. Cada hit seu vai levar ele cada vez mais pro canto da tela, quando estiver próximo da rampa, dá backdash pra voltar pro meio (faça isso enquanto ele pula ao invés e atacar ele). É realmente BEM FÁCIL. Cola nas Live do canal =)
