Damage Dodger

6 posts in this topic

So, yeah, Damage Dodger is the main obstacle to platting the game, and it is one massive, *colossal* obstacle. Unless you have some serious 2D action game experience under your belt, don't even consider it. If you've beaten Battle Kid or gotten 50 Gold in Mega Man Legacy Collection, then you can definitely handle it. It took me about 40 hours, but I spent a lot of times checking walls for secrets (and I still ended up missing a couple of hidden rooms).

 

Picking up Armor Augments will *not* prevent you from getting the trophy. They don't really help much, but, yeah, they're safe to pick up. The one augment you might want to skip is the item pull one in the Poison Pavilion. That one could become an issue when using Last Stand.

 

Indeed, Last Stand is what I relied on in all the bosses after the first few. You get delicious double damage, but you can't afford to take a single hit (aside from possibly one to actually trigger Last Stand). You wouldn't be able to take many hits anyway, so I'd say this is clearly optimal.

 

I have videos of all the bosses (and some of trickiest parts in the final dungeon) on my YouTube channel. Here's the final boss, for instance:

The final boss took me 2 and a half hours, but I could've wrapped it up sooner if I'd known how things work in the final phase (this was the third time I made it there). The RNG with the green balls in the second phase is your main concern. If you can manage to get familiar with the behavior of the balls, you don't have to rely so much on favorable RNG. Move as little as possible until it's time to jump over Ardur's charge attack. Note that the staff itself can't damage you, but that hardly matters, since there are usually a bunch of balls flying around.

 

Oh, and here's where I did the grind for King. You need 125 grand just to expand your bank limit to 50k. The trophy description says 'more than 50 000,' but that's not really accurate; you just need to reach 50 000. You don't have to exceed it.

And, now... my thumb needs rest.

So just to confirm you CAN'T buy any armor upgrades or new armor from the shop but CAN get upgrades found throughout the world? 

 

Just wanna make sure since I think I bought a small upgrade to the base armor so I may have to start over but thankfully I'm not too far

 

Also once you clear the game and pop the trophy I'm assuming you can reload the save and buy the armor upgrades to pop the other trophies while cleaning up other various trophies as well

All the little upgrades are fine (start with more HP after dying, 1% chance to avoid damage, etc.). You just have to keep the default red armor. Every armor has a different color, so as long as you're red, you're good.

 

One of the little upgrades is kind of elusive, since you get it from an NPC in the forest village after beating the Blood Knot. I almost got a heart attack when I got that, sinice I didn't know yet that the little upgrades were safe to pick up.

 

And, yeah, once you beat the game and get the trophy, you can just clean up whatever is left (I missed the last gargoyle myself, because I didn't realize what the switch inside the wall does). A single playthrough is enough - *if* you can handle the challenge.

Might be an issue when playing the game on a PS5.
