As conquistas de nao levar dano em chefes ate que nao sao tao dificeis, basta conhecer um pouco as souls e decorar o padrao direitinho de cada chefe que fica moleza.
23 Oct 2021

Concordo, os desafios dos chefes ate que sao divertidos. O que dificulta e o level cap junto, com seu ataque mais fraco as lutas demoram mais. O unico que eu nao gostei de fazer foi o do Headhunter, por causa da terceira forma

Mastered! The only ones I didn't like doing were Path of the Hunter (thankful Ripper soul is allowed, that one is rough), Path of the Predecessor (not too hard, Legion just takes FOREVER to die thanks to your relatively poor gear) and The Power to Rule (easy, just takes a while). I didn't dislike Sword or Whip, but it was pretty tough. But other than that, this was a pretty fun set, and one can tell there was careful thought placed into it

I dunno where to mention a bug exactly, but if you look at my userpage right now, it only shows the first 8 icons. (I may delete this comment once fixed.)

This happens when the set is undergoing type of maintenance, the achievements temporarily taken out of the main set and "downgraded" to an unofficial set, but after everything adjusted, they return
13 Jan 2022
13:38
I wonder if we should have a "undergoing maintenance" flag at the top of a page that we could set for when a set has a bunch of demoted achievements

Except it didn't seem to affect other profiles I saw, I think, I couldn't say who, but on other profiles I think i remember seeing all 55 listed, whereas for me there's only 8.
13 Jan 2022
15:17
It shows 55 on your profile for me too. Maybe it's a browser error on your end?
13 Jan 2022

Now it does once again, but I can assure you it didn't merely minutes ago... :P Odd...

Isolated : It starts to glitch when listing 85 games and above on my profile, and gets worse and worse, say at 150 games : https://retroachievements.org/user/Vince989?g=85

that's really wrong :S can confirm that happens here too. Definitely a webpage/browser/data issue of some sort - we need to isolate it a little to start getting a fix

Probably something wrong in RA's PHP API ?

these new boss achievements are absolute dogshit. you spend an hour grinding one soul trying not to overlevel doing it and then you end up kiting the boss to let your magic bar fill up so u can use the soul that you are forced to use. yeah i really feel like im mastering the game now
1 Feb 2022
22:19
yes i also think there is no fun in it, or have to research youtube to break the game but the authors of this will never aggree, it's ridiculous

RE-MASTERED
2 Mar 2022
15:36
Finally remastered. Juluis boss rush was the hardest imo. The boss achievements ended up being fun when they had damageless. The soul or weapon requirements are still stupid. I think if they where just "no magic, no damage + certain level" it would be way simpler and better.

These new achievements are awful. Because grinding souls inherently gives XP, it's very difficult to even do them in the same playthrough. They *clearly* belong in a bonus set.
