If you miss and get nailed, break out the Jellyfish Costume.  That thing has saved my life so many times against the later bosses.  There's nothing that will take away half of your life, so equip it and run away.

Course, if you hit it AND get nailed, different story, but you get the picture.  I actually had 4 Arcane Poultices leftover.

I had unbelieveable trouble hitting that little blue bulb in his mouth as well...I think about 1 in 8 shots would actually hit it.  And only 1 of the 4 that hit had me get out of the way of the beam as well.

I got tons of food lol xD
I got hit every time I tired to shoot the blue head thing
but I managed to avoid the shooting from that head, I used royal soup...
Huh. I might have had trouble with the timing on that bubble cave boss, but when I only have to worry about a few buttons, I can manage better. I was able to fairly quickly get the timing on blasting him AND getting out of the way. It might help if you back away a bit.

trying to avert my eyes to enemies I havn't come in contact with, a couple of things that worked for me for some earlier bosses:

clinging to the wall for the sun temple worm was mentioned, I still got hit a couple of times but he wasn't vacuuming me out. I ate a spicy roll and kept the energy on high while trying to take him out. once he dissappeared off screen ( I had to do this boss/level 4x for various dumb reasons: phone calls, being ping-ponged by crystals, this bug, and 4th time the charm )  and the door remained closed with no worm to be found. I'm not sure if this is a glitch? the second time I attempted this I kept him in view by using the middle click viewer and attacking at the same time, a method that's also good for smaller pesky things like piranas, prickly dart jerks, and other things that volley off immense fire power.

for the 3 priests ( and my first attempt at sun worm ) I was using spider silk and making a quick loop around the boss which even though you only have 8 seconds of silk or something, the silk persists for a good 15-20 seconds or something. the worm could break out of it but it definitly was getting himself caught up in it and it effectivly tangled up those priests!  once I saw about a dozen fish trapped in some webbing, only time I had seen something besides myself and an enemy trapped in there.

my best boss strategy is fishing, cooking and saving tho. getting all the duks lined up and then seeing what works  Smiley  so far the only boss that has given me immense grief and pain was the Mithalis beast, the ones since then have been managable and I don't think it's because I'm getting to be more of a ninja ( tho that ~ is ~ a factor ) they just don't seem to have as tricky solutions as the beast?  that one I had to look up what to do ( didn't know at that point I could bind and switch forms, so was getting my brain wrapped around that too ) and it still was a pain in the kark to do. afterwards I saw a youtube video of that sequence and the guy playing didn't get hit *once*

not sure if the Simon says beasty counts as a boss but my strategy with him was to count off the notes ( 1 - 7 ) in the *tones* they were ordered. it made an immediate short term memory pattern and my only problem was co-ordination and speed. it took quite awhile for me to gimp my way up to the beasty's speed and that was just trying to be patient and taking his roaring at me as a scolding reprimand, not as a hostile attack. also I was completly level with him with my notes just a fraction away from his lil eyeballs.

I know I'm probably missing something very simple but, how do I get the ability to see in the dark ( i.e. the Abyss). It has to be more than just getting the fish with light to move around you. Tell me there is please.

There is a form that can help you with that. I'd start snooping around the Veil.

I don't think that it is possible to get the light-making pet without having the form you get in the Sun Temple.

btw, wrong thread...

related to the SunWorm boss, the horrible path up to him. found out this after I had beat him and on the way out, so on the second time playing I employed this strategy which helped indirectly in taking out the boss.  going through the pink crystal area, don't worry about any of the bulbs, get them on the way back and go through via nature. you'll save on bandaids and unnecessary consumption of ingredients  Wink

I recently learned that you don't need to knock back the energy god to bind the energy orb, but make sure that you're close enough for the bind song to work.

Erm, yeah, but the risk of being hit by him when just swimming to that orb and using the bind song is a bit bigger then when you shoot him back and grab the orb with ease.

But if you're doing a speed run, that's a nice idea. =p

I don't think I shoot it again after it popped out, but if it's necessary I guess some of the shootings to keep the mutants at bay went amiss and hit the eye. Wink
