    I don't feel I'm dominating battles because my arrows seem to do shit damage. But whatever.

    Upgrade your bows to have more break damage. #1 way to make the game a cake walk.

    Yeah I'm in the same situation, I'm in the first cauldron and keep getting slaughtered.

    Looking back I'm just as bad as you Prestigious

    Yeah I got my ass kicked for a really long time (I've got it under control now, it's all about planning). I think @Henry is just really good, haha.

    Use Tear Blast arrows to take off components. Make sure you mark enemies and aim at the glowing parts to do damage and not just firing arrows at the body. Make sure you're using elemental arrows against components that are weak to those types.

    Finally picking up the main quest after spending a good 10 hours on side content.

    I am all in on both of these narratives right now. Haven't been this immersed in a story for quite a while.

    Let me know when you guys hit rockbreakers. Those were easily the most difficult enemies in the game.

    Haven't seen any of those yet. I am playing pretty slowly. I want to 100% this game, and I am afraid of peeking at the Hidden Trophies. Lol

    Yeah those things are ridiculously hard but so satisfying to take down. In the end I found climbing onto rocks which aren't too wide was my best tactic for them as that way they can't attack you from below and then try and get their feet off with tear arrows [\spoiler]

    Yeah, that is basically the only approach. The only hard part from there is dodging the projectiles.

    At lv20, and I have an errand for materials that come off Thunderjaws. The one I scanned was a lv27 so I'm not gonna fux with it yet. The only enemy that still gives me trouble is the shell walker. If I run into a group of them esp.

    Just finished Cauldron XI and holy fucking Christbombs, what a goddamn neverending abominable shitfest. I'm terrified of what Zeta's gonna look like.

    I don't know which one was the crab one, but it was definitely my least favorite.

    That armor you unlock through the power cells is ridiculous. I went from being terrified of fighting two of those rock creatures to basically standing between them and voluntarily choosing to melee them instead of shooting arrows. It absorbs basically everything.

    Game (fun) breaking?

    I mean, it's still great fun but it definitely takes a lot of the strategy out of the fights knowing that if I get into a slugfest, I'm going to come out on top unless I'm swamped by a dozen enemies.

    If I can go from feeling intimated and overawed by a huge machine to suddenly obtaining the armor and then willingly just waltzing up to it and continually beating it to death with just a spear, that's pretty telling as to how advantageous that outfit is. I'm glad that you get it towards the very end of the game otherwise there would be no reason to play stealthily, which I've predominantly done to this point.

    Yea, I enjoy playing stealthily, too. I currently have the purple stealth armor with additional stealth boosts. I don't really find the fights difficult on hard, currently, with all the traps and such available. After 30 hours, I've only died in combat like 3-5 times, so I don't feel like I need too much more help.

    Cum for the Cum God. Prestigious

    Speaking of said armor, I was actually gonna ask, is it feasible to find the power cells without either consulting a walkthrough or meticulously poring over evey inch of the map like a lunatic? Like, does the game ever point you in their general direction via some kinda quest or some such crap?

    Unfortunately not. There's no icons on the map to represent their location or anything like that. You kind of just have to stumble across them or use a guide.

    They are all in main mission locations other than the first one. If you don't have all of them before doing the final battle, look at a guide.
