Ended at level 19. I guess the legendary armor and shield aren't needed. Didn't need more than 1 HP throughout the last fight.
Compared to my last WIP, I did slay that hydra boss over a dozen seconds faster. It was just a matter of raising my Arm Strength during the fight so that the Blade of Muramasa actually does more than 2 damage. Sword of Flames was sacrificed for inventory management purposes.

85 Arm Strength backed by Blade of Muramasa only does 1 to 2 damage -- No better than just punching the thing. By the time I finish, I have 97 Arm Strength. The only better weapon to find is in that small chamber right after the boss. Don't bother magicking the boss, it's immune.
In any case, I only did minor-medium luck manipulation. Enough to delay some of its attacks. I did not deal with the 1-2 damage jitter. It has 250 HP to knock down. I should check if cheating my strength to 99 has any effect, other than muting the Arm Strength messages. Would let me know if I should keep the Blade unbroken until my arms grow a bit.
On a side note, I'm really, really glad frame perfection alone is enough to survive those arrow traps... 100+ damage doesn't help someone who only has 44 HP.

First, I had to get some extra keys, because I was one short.
Second, I figured out a glitch that lets me jump past teleporters.
Third, that three floor maze was a lot smaller than I thought.
I'm making progress once more. It appears likely I'll, at long last, give this run the finishing touches it needs.
Just a few questions I need to find answers for:
  • Can I survive that hallway of acid? Looks like 42 HP is enough.
  • Can I beat the Bezalhydra?
  • Will Berebus finally fall to my attacks at long last?
  • Are the legendary armor and shield even needed?
... I'm really hoping my 5 Magic Endurance doesn't prove fatal...

I beat up those same three lobsters over again. Their insane defense means they really deserved it.
In all seriousness, all I did was try a different route. Changes begin just before I do my Arm Strength training. I pick up a Sword of Flames in order to kill a few enemies, one of whom has a Blade of Muramasa. Right along my path, too! Faster by almost 900 frames to do that than the lengthy route to that chest in the older WIP.
No progress for 5F and beyond, yet. I claim it'll be soon, though!

Huh, so those two can be beaten in 30 hits with approximately 30 Arm Strength. Who knew? Changes begin at Tower 6F.

I ran out of M.Potions. 72 HP to go.
But hey, enough Knowledge EXP to hit 60s just from this.
