Thread: Brawler optimal STR thoughts

Started by: TrysdynTrysdyn

Glad to hear that cheese helped out, and congrats on the World.

we can do some maths here but I think you got it right. I have been doing 150 but by the time I get to ice cave my damage is already falling off again, once I get better at duping I will probably up it.

If your quick enough There maybe room for a quick dupe near the end before the last 2 bosses, egg room or something to try and top off strength to hit a breakpoint there?

How fast can you dupe to screen limit? once you know that you can math out a good idea of how much time it takes to dupe to the next breakpoint.

edit

Ok so in your WR you dupe to screen limit at about 30 seconds per go not including setting to your use slot. this could be marginally faster but this is already really close to as fast as possible while still allowing human error. in total going from 16 to 200 took you 8mins.
This further breaks down to about 30 str per min doing the dupe assuming your keeping this pace. Which is I think only really helps assert that 200 is the ending point unless "maybe" your doing all dungeons. maybe if you could find a better weapon near guaranteed during the run at this late stage I could see duping past a breakpoint being worth it, but other wise your just better off spending the time using guts and healing items.

Thread: Clone glitch?

Started by: dragonguarddragonguard

I found a glitch involving the clone on GameFAQs
https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/gba/589485-shining-soul-ii/cheats

and noticed nobody seems to be using it. I have validated its existence on both the JP cart and the English cart. Using this ive been able to power wine to any stat i want, come into the clone room, throw a healing item as he runs towards me, move down and ensure the item is gone (was used by the clone) and then turn around and one shot him.

In addition ive tried throwing a number of other items to see if it has any effect but nothing yet, wings, soul, mp items, bombs. Only healing items seem to be do anything leading me to believe that this may be intended rather than a glitch.
