Hello everyone, i'd like to ask something, a favor, someone can give a hint about the tyrfing's achievements? I already got the ring of ares, but i thinking about if its worth a farm to increase the a ATK, but it have something more to help than the RoA and potions stuff? Or its just learn the pattern of the bosses? I'll apreciate any help.
4 Oct 2021

You don't need to farm for any of them. Drink attack, strength, and luck potions before entering the room, and equip Ring of Ares + Moonstone or Ring of Pales. Then, just learn the patterns. "No damage" videos may help with that.

Oh lord, Rondo of Blood Gaiden must be hell on earth...
14 Oct 2021
21:34
It's really not. Hydro Storm makes it a joke....mostly. You just need to be careful and farm hearts sometimes. Or you can be a speedrunner and aerial blade dash through everything - your choice. ;)
16 Oct 2021
21:16
I did a Richter run recently and now i see Rondo Gaiden might not be that bad actually. Just need to be cautious and not fk things up at Galamoth :p
16 Oct 2021
21:31
In Galamoth you can abuse the knife item crush, stand on the highest platform on the right side. You can also go straight to him at the start of the game, kill him and then go back to the normal castle to continue the challenge, if you want to ensure you don't lose your progress leaving him for the end.

I know. I have a save file just before him with Richter (knife in the pocket) just to practice these air dashes without falling (which isn't that easy to do in sequence with a keyboard). Already had to use a lot of those in the Trevor and Gang No Damage challenge.
17 Oct 2021
12:24
Did it!! Thanks for the tips, guys. I used the "go to Galamoth as soon as possible" strategy. Now i just need to get all rare drops to master SOTN.

Does anybody knows if all (or most) of achievements can be get in luck mode?
3 Nov 2021
1:30
All achievements can be done in luck mode. Only don't use Death skip!
3 Nov 2021
20:43
Yeah, luck mode was somewhat essential to get the "reveal all rare drops" cheevo. But the real MVP was the Frame Skip lol

Mastered this masterpiece! At first, the set sounds very intimidating, but nothing that a few hours of practice to solve the challenges, was very fruitful! Many thanks to everyone involved in this set, Saturn version now!
