Out of all the grindy activities in the game it's by far the easiest time wise. Just spam the technique in the opening hallway and try to hit as many enemies as possible to build the meter.
Wow, you‘re right. In addition, I used Standstill to freeze the enemies, and I managed to master 7 techniques in just 20min so far.

I'm stuck. I've just killed the boss in The Tower of Twin Dragons and I have no idea where to go next. Can anyone help me out please?

Pick up the silver bromide (it's a key item you almost certainly picked up after beating the dragons)
Try to enter the train in the lower right of the castle (just past the garden)
Find OD in the Libre Ex Machina
Go talk to Dominique and sit in the chair to the far left of her room.
Go back to OD.
Go to the train.
 
Xbox One chest fix is now out

Just in from the Discord:
Xbox Players: Update 1.0.0.5 is now live. This update addresses the "Chest Bug" where certain treasure chests appear as open, even if the player did not interact with them. This can result in a player being unable to acquire items needed to complete the game or get 100% completion.

This update will allow the game to check the player’s inventory to see if a critical item is missing. If so, the chest will close and provide access to those items.

We are working to apply this fix to other platforms as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve the game across all platforms.
Basically exactly how I envisioned this problem could be fixed - a sanity check on the key items vs the state of the chests they are found in.

Man, Accelerator Shard + Reva Velar is hilarious. You basically become a fast moving ball of death! Doing New Game+ with all of my broken weaponry is great!

Question, does the Traveler's ring keep powering up on each playthrough? Or, is it purely based on overall map percentage (which carries over)?

yeah I'm going to lay this off until this gets a patch... Criticisms on the switch version weren't exaggerated at all, very very poor version to what would otherwise be a pretty good game

So I play this like I play most Igavania’s - I work on rare drops for all of the demons. How ridiculously overleveled will I be for bosses? I don’t ‘think’ my damage level is going up, just magic and health, right? Is there a level cap?

Your damage goes up too because your base stats go up as you level. What I’d recommend is unless you’re looking for something specific, farm for rare drops later. Your Luck stat will be naturally higher, plus you’ll have better access to more Luck boosting gear, making your overall farming time less.

I platinumed this game yesterday, my second platinum ever. I think I'm done with it for now though.

Fucking phenomenal game. I know they confirmed that if they do a sequel it's not gonna be crowd funded, but I'm super interested. I'd back it again.

Am I right in remembering there's a rumor of a performance patch coming in a week or so?
There’s a patch with an ETA next week for Switch with a fix for the bugged chests, similar to what Xbox got today. While they said they’re working on performance, they did not say to expect those improvements in next week’s patch. This is in Kickstarter Update 93: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iga/bloodstained-ritual-of-the-night/posts/2556102

Finished it on Sunday, really enjoyed the game. Wish the map have color markers or name for sections but I loved it.

Got a 99.80 on the map lol. Similar happened on SOTN when I played that. Not going for 100 though, moving on to another game this week.

Good call! Thank you.


Welp, got the bad ending. Now to continue my journey to get the true ending.
....There’s a bad ending? Is this something I should be spoiling myself a little bit to avoid getting?

Soooo. I have a 100% demon completion rate, but only a 92% for shards. But i've gone through the list, and i've got everything. I don't understand.

Can anyone help me, please.

There's no way to increase the grade of boss shards, right? I have pretty much all shards at 9/9 now except the boss ones like Shadow Tracer.

There's something about this game that makes you want to 100% it. I haven't felt this in a long time.

I want to craft a katana shard, but it requires me to lose my two single hand sword shards. Would i only lose the shards or would I lose the rank of these shards as well? Because I have already levelled them up a couple of times.

Look at the before-after to the right, materials only decrease, you don t forfeit shards. The shard requirement is just a lock. Save your game before proceeding, in case my memory is at fault ;)

You don’t actually lose shards by combining. Just look at the counter of the Shards it will say 2 -> 2 if you have 2 Shards already.

I'd love some recommendations on what to craft and which shards to upgrade. I'm currently level 19, defeated the
stained glass hand, climbed the tower
and now I'm roaming the
library
. I'm currently rocking
Rhava Bural, True Arrow at level 3, and Silver Knight as my familiar.

I love this game to bits but the fact that the map system was shipped in its current state is fucking laughable.

Getting an
8-bit Coin(there's one in a chest)
and crafting
Encrypted Orchid
early was one of the best decisions that I made. I completely unknowingly made one of the best weapons in the game. I just thought it looked cool, but it carried me hard, and then I found out the other two similar items had a purpose....

I just read up on that weapon and people seem upset because it was nerfed in a patch. Did you play post-patch?
