    This is a very annoying cheevo /rant. Strategy is stack up use Atk & Str Potion plus Shield Rod and Knight Shield just before the battle to counteract the Tyrfing. There is enough time, (but barely).

    It isnt att locked like other achievements so you can grind and you can use varda rings.

    Not an achievement, but a complete trash, there is still similar there, with another boss ... I have a question, how to get Ares' ring at this level (without fog and bat ???)
    Shmelyoff 9 May 2021 17:39
    You don't need either fog or bat to get Ares ring. All that you need is just double jump. Also if you don't know game have things like str/att potions that can make this fight even more trivial.
    Losstarot 9 May 2021 17:45
    Yes? And how can I get it in the catacombs? With just one double jump? With banks, a class idea, by the way, that's just the point of them, if you don't have time to kill both bosses in the time allotted to zero.
    Shmelyoff 9 May 2021 18:05
    You can jump over gap in waterfall room using only double jump. And your statement is not true. As you can see Arek didn't use potions at all and still got the achievement.
    Losstarot 9 May 2021 18:07
    Oh, sorry, I didn't think that you can jump from the waterfall ... Thanks for the advice, I think now everything will go as it should)
    ArtLexxGames 5 Jul 2021 14:59
    Losstarot, you just need the double jump. go to the waterfall and cross it with double jump. after you press the switch at the end, the skull with barrel will appear on the bridge to the catacomb. attract her to the bridge and she'll clear the path.

    ArtLexxGames, Thanks, but right now I'm stuck somewhere else))) https://retroachievements.org/achievement/82660

    2 Ring of Vardas + Strenght Potion and its very easy. Skip the Cutscene with Richter immediately and start to attack the Werewolf cuz they both frozen for Seconds. I learned this from the Speedrunner Dr4gonblitz. Here is my Video: https://youtu.be/hoFKWNycAg8

    Here is my clip on how to do it:
    1 Wolf - https://youtube.com/clip/UgkxkNaM_8urNcspsVkyIn5LLPILFjSJVOsM
    2 Minotaur - https://youtube.com/clip/UgkxqE0dhYnNdBPwGOp6xybaz9Ub_EdNMNf7

    Wolf pattern is decent to learn, but the hurtbox in the Minotaur axe really turns this thing a little bit messy...

    Ring of ares , Flying kicks and devil familiar helps a lot
    practice this fight without hardcore mode, when you're feeling safe try hardcore mode
