Thanks bro, it was equal parts awesome and equal parts hell.
I can relate, Chapter 13 was a bitch the first few times. What part is screwing you over? Here are few general tips:
-At the beginning run past every enemy and head to the door ASAP. The mudrome can't hurt you if run asap.
-Dark Pit is a bitch. Learn to beat him consistently and you'll be that much closer to finishing this stage. You'll need to attack him after he fires. I find getting in his face and constantly meleeing him to be a good strategy. He's frail, but he can take a beating from afar, especially on 9.0.
-Pace yourself. Rushing through will only get killed.
-You need Pisces heal for arlon. He's a joke on other intensities, but on 9.0 he's a serious threat. Watch out for his laser beam (he'll strike a pose, charge up and fire a vertical laser beam) which does ridiculous amounts of damage.
I found chapter 16 to be pretty easy tbh. One of the better stages to grind for hearts imo. My guess is your probably having trouble with one of the Aurum mobs. Make sure you carry Pisces heal and your best healing items; its ok to use it on the mob, the boss itself is a pushover.
And here I was being all proud of myself finishing Stage 1 on Intensity of 9. Haha. Great job man.
I feel like I could probably do the foot parts on 9, but I can usually never make it to those. I'm always getting absolutely smoked on the shooting sections. I'm just terrible at dodging the shots. Even letting go of the trigger and flying like I'm supposed to barely ever works for me. I do the barrel roll move often too, but sometimes I screw that up. Would be much easier to do that sort of move with the DPad. Any tips for the flying sections?
Thanks. I commiserate with you dude, up until recently I didn't think i'd ever complete a stage on 9.0. There 3 things you need to have in order to consistently complete stages on 9.0.
-Weapon of choice. I'm a blades man. I exclusively used blades, even if I had better weapon types, because I was really comfortable with blades. (There are exceptions though)
-Abilities, they make the world of difference. Strong defense mods (4 ~ 8) can make the world of difference. It's incredible how much damage you can take. Speed is also really important since it lets run past enemies, and increases how fast you move in continuous fire. it even improves your aerial speed.
-Persistence. You will die. A LOT. The trick is to limit how much you play to prevent burnout. Taking breaks will do a world of good. Thinking stages over and coming at it from a different angle works too. I had to use Trade-off to beat the 3GST on 9.0 for reference.
