    Yup. Though the mini boss prior to the Soul Master caused me a bunch more grief!

    Did a bit more exploring, killed the Dream boss in the Stone Sanctuary, and then went on down to the Mantis Lords. Beat the first one without too much fuss, but couldnít figure out how to dodge the frisbees with two in play. Parked at the bench for another shot tomorrow.

    I'm enjoying this commentary very much. It wasn't long ago that I was playing this game, so it's nice to hear the path you take and where you're finding it tough. For the most part, the same bosses seem to be causing all the grief.

    @PrivateFloyd

    Check out Rain World if you need a similar fix to tide you over.

    Starting to get the measure of its attack patterns now. Main issues are 'when to attack?', 'when to heal?', and reading that fake dive it does... And my clumsy old man fingers of course.

    The fake dive is a pain.

    Got his *first* form (that was annoying to discover) 'nailed' now (at least I know what I need to do even if I don't always manage it). That second form though...

    I seem to recall going Patient Rambo on him on that final phase. Itís faster, but more predictable if memory serves. Went down in a few attempts, whereas it mustíve taken me 20+ to learn the first part.

    Took out the charm that located me on the map so I could add both a long nail and collect soul faster.

    Not sure the latter made a difference and a bit hairy getting back to the bench but delighted with the result

    Mantis Lords are history! Needed two shots at it, but that was all. Deepnest sucks.

    Itís not the atmosphere. Itís the endless maze sections, OK, what it really is is that I have just encountered a section that requires me to pogo off a centipede and I absolutely HATE IT. I hated it with the mushrooms and I hate it even more here. The day when I realised that Ismaís Tear meant I could access the bit of Greenpath where previously you had to bounce off the turtle thing was a really good day.

    Crystal Guardian. He's a frustration now. How I came to be stuck in Crystal Peak is probably clear to you all, but I have no idea if I should be here. He's probably not all that tough, but ffs, it's a trek to get back to him. I want out of here!

    Aside; no he isn't. I'd argue that was actually fairly easy when I gave it some thought.

    ... And now I'm out of Crystal Peak. Had a real 'omg!' feeling at where I came out; hadn't been paying attention to where I was in the world.

    Where to go now? It's either east from the Forgotten Crossroads or West from Greenpath...

    And I think I am pretty much done with Deepnest. Which is nice.

    Deepnest is the worst area of the game, as far as I'm concerned. It's Hollow Knight's Blight Town.

    Well, I gave up on the bit where I had to pogo. I actually figured out last night that you only have to pogo once on the centipede - you can get across the rest of the gap by dashing and double jumping. However, I managed this a grand total of once in about 30 attempts, and itís immediately followed by more difficult platforming.

    There are a couple of things I will come back for later, perhaps, but Iíve addressed the main reasons for going there.

    I think I must have missed something along the way. There seems to be no options for me down South...

    @ZuluHero yeah - I think I found the entrance, but don't have the key. Don't even know where to start looking...
