You certainly weren't kidding about the Guardian fight...

While felicity and roald are pretty offensive characters, their defensive abilities are pretty powerful also, if one of you is about to die, switch them to phalanx and they will cast either greater purpose or blade dance depends on who you are using, both are great life saver, blade dance is virtually immunity if felicity's speed is high enough which is likely to be the case, greater purpose stacks with ice wall and will reduce the damage by more somewhere around 90 percent since the enemy can only deal about 10 damage when the two buff stacks. I think I had a easy run too, never ran into much trouble except captain hunt and the hounds really. The knight and double mage are trouble some too, but that's about it.

Yeah, I really only had trouble with the Knight and Double Mage, Captain, and the Specialist/Double Hounds also (though the Specialist/Hound fight was partially due to the fact that I inadvertently deprived Vera of some much needed XP by going for the Black Magic achievement when I fought Clemons).  So I'd say I had a relatively easy run as well.

thx for the advice but i decided to go on psycho shocker legend run and see how far i could get and it was a pretty easy run about 4 hrs i made it to zone 7, i think i like psycho better because of the damage and crits.

Yeah Psycho Shocker is easy for Legend. Z7 is difficult for it though. I changed my build for each battle and for the final 2 i had to go into the Shock Coma instant win thing, which only just worked.

Also on my Psycho Shocker, i found that 1/4 of my attacks were crits. Even in Wraith Form i just never hit a crit. It fustrated me so much. Gate does that happen to you. Also what is you Speed at level 30?

In my experience Shocker seems to be the better of the two Psycho builds, since some of the shadow elemental techs if I recall (haven't played Psycho in a while) are situational to the point of being almost useless.  Also if you don't grab items that lend a boost to Vitality as well as the stat that most of techs in the build scale with, you can't seem to take a hit very well against some enemies such as the hounds in z5 (but they seem to do crazy damage against you regardless of the class and build you choose).  Hopefully if and when you return to the Hydraulic class for the All-Star achievement you'll have better luck with it if you choose to attempt another Cold Hydro Legend run.

Yeah, i would say the Legend achievement requires its fair amount of luck. As getting the best weapons, armour etc makes the run significantly easier, however if you have poor equipment it can make it much harder; as the Hounds were to you Techno.

Yeah, if I hadn't gone for the Black Magic achievement I could've equipped some better items on Veradux, making the battle with the Hounds easier on me than it was.  On the plus side I now know that it can be done on a Cold Hydro Legend run.  Of course I really wasn't thinking about that when I faced off against Clemons.  I was thinking "Let's see if I can't cram one more achievement into this run that wasn't mentioned in the guide".  But when I got to the Specialist/Hound fight and I couldn't equip some of the Z5 items on Vera I began to realize that there was a very good reason why strategy for the Black Magic achievement wasn't mentioned in the guide.

oh for me my speed at lvl 30 is 174, and i manage to hit crits a lot actually. like one after the other. i could just be really lucky, but i remember one battle like the one i was stuck on on cold hydraulic i kept doing massive damage and i used roald as a distraction for the hounds and then went to town murdering all of them with my ~2k crits. i love wraith form too and honestly i think psycho shocker is tons more fun than cold hydraulic because i just love watching those flashing numbers. i dont know what happened to you, kingpong, but i just followed the universal 19 points into vitality and rest into instinct and i do reasonably well damage. ive found that the weapons and equips help too, like z7 i just LOVE the full armor sets and after 7hko dr. klima, vera and roald look awesome. i like the poseidons trident better than the law binder because of the higher crit chance but with charged armor spark gloves and leggings i have low vitality so i just made up for it with some cyborg equips.
