    I recently got a quest to fight "myself", an opponent with the exact same HP and sword as I:

    enter image description here


    What are effective ways to defeat one's self?

    Also, I realized that if you have too much HP (by eating too much candy), this will make the quest take too long to finish. Aside from not eating too much candy, are there other ways to make this quest easier and faster to finish, like which choice of sword and other items to use?

    Do the effects of the swords activate when fighting yourself? i.e. Will fighting yourself with the Life Sword make the quest longer to finish as both you and yourself (your clone) are continually healing themselves on every hit? What about the effects of the Fire Sword and the Sword of Summoning?


    From a question closed as a duplicate of this one (What does the sorceress mean by being "able to surpass yourself"?):

    The sorceress recently gave me an option to buy the ability to "surpass myself" in exchange for a million lollipops. I bought that ability. Afterwards, the sorceress now says this:

    Sorceress: You are now able to surpass yourself. Congratulations !
    You are now able to surpass yourself. Congratulations !

    • What triggers the sorceress into selling you the ability to surpass yourself?
    • And what does it mean if I am now "able to surpass myself"?
    • What changes do the "ability to surpass yourself" do? (I'm asking this mainly to know how cheats could have a side effect on this game mechanic.)
      • An approved edit by an anonymous user in this answer states that: "The Surpass Yourself increases the damage done to the You (Clone) while not damaging You (Player), making the level completable." However, this conflicts with this other answer: "The "Surpass Yourself" spell basically prevents the real you from dying when you battle yourself. When you get down to 0 health, the real you will be given 1 health, allowing you to complete the level.". Can anyone confirm how exactly the game mechanics work here?

  • Pay the sorceress 1 million lollipops to 'surpass yourself', only then can you win.

    Any scrolls or potions etc. affect both of yourself, resulting in no net advantage.

  • There are two solutions to this level. The first solution, as mentioned before, is to pay the sorceress the sum of 1 million lollipops. Now this doesn't sound all that appealing. This is the easy way to do it.

    However, if you want to save yourself the lollipops and time, fight yourself and wait until the moment you drop under 25 life to cast a fire scroll. Easy win if you can time it right.

    I had about 400 life when I killed myself, so health wasn't an issue. I suppose the fire enchanted sword would be optimal since it does additional damage.

By how much will eating one candy raise max health?

  • dismissed or shortly after the homie / player character dies. I know that homies can't be called as a follower most of the time when you currently have a mission active. But even if I don't have any mission active, some homies' phones still give out a busy signal when called. I also know that there's a cooldown period before you can call a homie again to be a follower after they have been dismissed. In instances where I don't have a mission active, what causes the homies' phones to give a busy signal when called? And how does this work? How long is the cooldown period before you can call

  • While playing the game mostly everything goes smoothly except for one thing, intermittent freezing. Every so often (pretty much at random) the game will stutter, and by that I mean it will freeze then quickly go to where it should be. If you've ever played a game like Amnesia: The Dark Descent or any of the Penumbra games you probably know that the atmosphere is amazing, but this stuttering..., does anyone have any ideas/suggestions on how I can try and fix this or at least make it more playable?
