I'm still slowly making my way through this game, but the more I play, the more I like this game. I have a few questions, though.
How do elixirs work? Does adding more monster parts do anything? For example, say I want to make an elixir that increases my attack. If I add one "attack frog" (or whatever) and one monster part, how does this differ from one attack frog and four monster parts? Or four attack frogs and one monster part?
Also, I just beat a shrine called "A Major Test of Strength," in which I'm fighting a small (yet tough) Guardian. What is the tactic for dealing with its lasers? He charges them up, but there's nowhere in the room to hide behind, and an arrow to the eye doesn't stop the charging process. I ended up wailing on him and being revived by fairies, but there has to be a better way.
