  • Devil's Tail Hint

    When using the Devil's Tail in alchemy, it can end bad. But, there's a simple trick to it. If the devil's tail is one of three items, it'll end in a strong item. If it's one of two, the other item will end up cursed and making you severely weak.

  • Yangus's (Think) Best weapon

    You need the bird soul stone thing first and when you are flying look for the tower and left of it should be a big cliff thing and you can land on it you always start at the top though and it has every type of slime on it including the metal king slime and when you start to explore there are a few passage ways, but you should eventually, reach the bottom. You'll see a gap through a gap in the rocks and should see a chest. Open the chest you get a weird, yet powerful, axe which is useful for fighting metal king slimes.
