The "Shadow Lord" Item


#41

Figured as much, but was unsure to be honest. I’ll hold on to them until I attempt my godlike run.


#42

Mine gave me more health, I would take a lot of hits from gargos and my health would lower very slowly


#43

I felt like I could take more hits aswell…


#44

@Delriach I think I have it figured out. I looked back at one of my Gargos runs where I used the Shadow Lord item, and I realized that I was actually draining his meter from him. On a different run I was dealing massive damage.
@SonicDolphin117 was gaining Shadow and Instinct on masse, AND dealing huge damage.

My hypothesis: It gives you Gargos Buffs, and the higher the tier the more powers you get. The one you get for Normal (Rare) gives 1, Challenging (Epic) 2-3, and Godlike (Killer) at least 3 or more.


#45

Now there comes the paradox, I need the killer shadow lord perk to kill godlike Gargos but I have to kill him to get it.


#46

What if you use the SL item from beating gargos on a lower difficulty in your godlike gargos battle?


#47

You still get a big buff, just not as big…


#48

You get the Shadow Lord item based on score. I died in my Godlike run and I still got the highest rarity SL item.


#49

Oh snap. I just beat gargos, he still ha four buffs, and all I needed was my riptor, a rare fracture ward, the SL item, a take less damage item, and a deal more damage item.
Downside is. I had just turned on my SL item for the gargos fight, it was of the three turn teir SL item. But I could only use it for that one fight and then it vanished. That left me scratchin my head.

I never took you for the masochist type.


#51

That’s what she said.


#52

:smiling_imp:


#53

how many rounds it lasts?


#54

It depends on the tier. The lowest level one (the one you get for getting a high score on normal) lasts 3 days, while I think @SonicDolphin117 said the Killer version from the Godlike fight is permanent, at least for that run.


#55

I never said that. I never even got a Killer version. Both of mine were Epics, and I only used them when I got to Gargos.


#56

I could’ve sworn someone had gotten the Killer version and tested it out. I guess I just figured since you were one of the first to best him on Godlike you’d be the one. :stuck_out_tongue: I guess it’s still a mystery then what higher level ones do.


#57

So I beat Gargos on Godlike, but I only got the epic version of the item. Can anyone confirm yet if there is a Killer version. I would rather not keep burning through all my consumables attempting another run if there isn’t a need to. Thanks in advance.


#58

How many turns did you get through, out of curiosity?


#59

It was like 23 or something around there. It put me in 6th place on the leaderboard


#60

Can confirm there is a killer version, i have two of them from a (now beaten record) 107 turn run. i guess i could use one to see what it does, all i know is its permanent for the duration of one run.
