Wait till you get the “gun”
Doom Effects + Lightning Chaining will have you clearing rooms crazy quick. I finished 3 floors in 20 minutes when I first got it. I can’t wait to play it some more this weekend!
Depends on the specific boon, what other boons you have but generally speaking attacks are the main damage source for sword / spear / shield. For bow / fists / gun it really depends on the build and personal preference (gun special is broken).Is it better to upgrade the normal attack or the special in terms of damage output? I'm getting mixed results with both depending on the weapon.
I also shoplifted from Charon today and the outcome was quite unexpected.
Feels in line with my experience.Depends on the specific boon, what other boons you have but generally speaking attacks are the main damage source for sword / spear / shield. For bow / fists / gun it really depends on the build and personal preference (gun special is broken).
Just remember to always, always take Deflect.
Totally varies depending on weapon and your boons and the type of weapon aspect you're using. There's builds for every type really!
Depends on the weapon and the boon
Some boons just feel better for the bosses whereas others are better for the normal encounters.Depends on the specific boon, what other boons you have but generally speaking attacks are the main damage source for sword / spear / shield.

Sorry I meant broken in the sense that it’s too powerful, you can increase the area of effect and the damage to the point where you just two-shot everything easily. If you get a slowing effect on top everything becomes super easy.Feels in line with my experience.
With broken gun special you mean overpowered?
After the first time i used deflect i knew i need this everytime since it is incredibly useful.
It's probably more tactics than reflex on that one. Try the bow. When it's 1 head, hit him with 3 blood gems, then shoot. Stay away from him and just be patient. When the heads pop up, rinse and repeat. Pick one at a time on the edge, and hit him with the gems, then shoot. When you see a large amount of activity, sometimes it's best to just try and slow down on that guy and not get overwhelmed. Don't run into floor hazards by dashing around haphazardly. After the multi-heads are clear, hit him with the gems and shoot. Stay far away. His attack range can be deceptive and hit you on easily avoidable attacks. Just be patient and wait until he's done freaking out to attack. When he shoots a large amount of the pink projectiles, just hide behind a pillar. Also the Athena dash power up reflects all projectiles.I think my reflexes are showing their age with this game. 17 runs and still can't get past the bone hydra. Ah well, I'll keep at it, you never know what each new run will bring.
Bow with Chiron is probably the best in the game. You can also take the daedalus upgrade for rapid shot. Then you just tag people once and then drill them with specials.Finally escaped with the Sword yesterday, it's really worth it to build it around the special.
Got the upgrade which makes it hit twice, then the Aphrodite upgrade which gives it more damage and inflicts "weak", and then further increased the damage every time I could.
I've escaped with the shield, spear and sword.
Now I'll try with the other weapons I feel less comfortable with. I've seen a lot of people online seem to love the bow but I've never really had a build with it that I've felt is good, it always feels slow and low damage to me. Any advice on boon, aspects and upgrades to get for it?
The other bosses are definitely more twitch reflex. Sometimes I do better on the hydra when I remember to not panic and slow down a bit.God I do this all the time, dashing into traps, dashing into the lava. I switched out of that double-dash talent just because I thought it might help me control my dashing a bit. Thx for the advice.
Pretty sure MS announced it's a day one gamepass game at E3.Was there some kinds of deal Sony struck with this game? I had no idea this was coming to Xbox, a pleasant surprise as everywhere I look it says that it's a Playstation game and even Metacritic lists is as PS5 being the only platform. Weird.
