[QUOTE=Psychopath12;35371615]I'm guessing that white hearts are going to be temporary hearts that are even more temporary than soul hearts. Like the extra heart you get from using the Strength tarot card that only lasts for a single room.[/QUOTE] Wouldn't they be after the soul hearts then? Otherwise they're pretty useless if you have several soul hearts.
Something i've been wondering for a while...does damage have a cap? As in, if your damage stat is at max, do items like Book of Belial and the Strength card do anything?
[QUOTE=~Myst;35373958]Something i've been wondering for a while...does damage have a cap? As in, if your damage stat is at max, do items like Book of Belial and the Strength card do anything?[/QUOTE] They still increase damage, but only a fraction of what they would normally do.
Didn't Edmund say that Book of Belial, Whore of Babylon and such are actually multipliers? I remember him saying so.
Yeah, I think both double damage, same with the razor.
[QUOTE=butters757;35374243]They still increase damage, but only a fraction of what they would normally do.[/QUOTE] Don't your attacks get bigger in size instead?
[QUOTE=iLife_Aftermath;35372720]Wouldn't they be after the soul hearts then? Otherwise they're pretty useless if you have several soul hearts.[/QUOTE] The way the Strength tarot card works, it will grant you an extra temporary normal red heart. That is why I compared the white heart to the hearts that are granted by the Strength tarot card. [QUOTE=~Myst;35373958]Something i've been wondering for a while...does damage have a cap? As in, if your damage stat is at max, do items like Book of Belial and the Strength card do anything?[/QUOTE] The stats themselves have diminishing returns. There is no set maximum, you just get less of an increase with each damage up you get. Damage multipliers like Book of Belial and Strength are unaffected by these diminishing returns since they are multipliers. [QUOTE=HyperTails;35377900]Don't your attacks get bigger in size instead?[/QUOTE] Tear size is proportional to damage done.
Strength doesn't double attack, it adds a point to all stats
you know what would be cool, some kind of nerd googles that adds hp bar to the enemys and every hit show the damage in number. just for the RPG feelin.
I've been trying for ages to get these 'No Damage' achievements. Fucking impossible I tell 'ye.
[QUOTE=HyperTails;35383809]I've been trying for ages to get these 'No Damage' achievements. Fucking impossible I tell 'ye.[/QUOTE] Basement and Caves was fairly easy - I just can't finish Depths and/or Womb without taking damage :(
[QUOTE=laenger;35383927]Basement and Caves was fairly easy - I just can't finish Depths and/or Womb without taking damage :([/QUOTE] Womb is piss easy if you have the good items, Depths is the real shit.
[QUOTE=laenger;35383927]Basement and Caves was fairly easy - I just can't finish Depths and/or Womb without taking damage :([/QUOTE] I've only got Basement. Caves, I think I'll get eventually. But the Depths and The Womb? Man fuck that.
[QUOTE=Maruhai;35384201]Womb is piss easy if you have the good items, Depths is the real shit.[/QUOTE] I think you meant that Womb is real shit.
I got depths in one of my early runs... Got shovel death deal caves 2, and I had an emperor card. So I went directly to mom and beat her without taking damage
You guys complain about no-hit runs (which I still need depths and womb, btw), but I still have seen mom's eye three times(?) in my 135 hours. Considering how I was farming D6, I Can See Everything, and The Noose for about 2 and a half hours, I think we can safely rule out that I won't be lucky enough for Krampus either.

Making 2 or more Devil rooms appear maximize Krampus' odds of appearing in one. Just stop taking that much damage and it should fall together :v:
I really suck at this game. And reading this thread made me realize that I REALLY suck at this game.
I might play some Binding of Isaac even though I 100%'d it so when the DLC comes out I don't suck at it :v: I did one run and it was fucking amazing! [img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/ThisWasTheRun.png[/img] I'm fucking huge! Also I have more than the 12 hearts it shows too. And of course all the items I got. I got some pretty good drops. [img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/ThisWasTheRun2.png[/img] I have no idea why so many people have problems doing a run with ???. I also passed up using getting Brimstone cause I heard it got nerfed so I stayed with regular coal shot.
got a feeling those white hearts are for restoring soul hearts or adds a layer to one

I think you guys assume I'm over-exaggerating, but I truly am as unlucky as I say I am :v:
He said that it's called an "eternal heart". That indicates that it never goes away. It's also clearly a separate thing from regular hearts and soul hearts. Having it act like a max health bonus would also be redundant. This is purely a guess, but I think it might be a heart that regenerates every room or something like that.
[QUOTE=Cajun;35403027]got a feeling those white hearts are for restoring soul hearts or adds a layer to one[/QUOTE] Someone decided to take the liberty of asking Edmund on his formspring. [url=http://www.formspring.me/EdmundM/q/310663525775182217]This should clarify what it is[/url], although Edmund doesn't elaborate what exactly it will do.
My guess is a permanent heart that can only be filled by a certain thing, Like a machine that requires coins or soul hearts or something.
It could be a heart that will stay even if you die with Guppy ? :v:
[QUOTE=Maruhai;35404742]It could be a heart that will stay even if you die with Guppy ? :v:[/QUOTE] That seems too situational to be of any use
[QUOTE=iLife_Aftermath;35408870]That seems too situational to be of any use[/QUOTE] Maybe there'll be more items that give you lives like 1-up and guppy? the hearts would have use then.
maybe they're soul hearts that read hearts have priority on, and as such owning one could get you an easy whore of babylon?
or soul hearts that can be filled with red hearts, but are lost when they run out?
I keep thinking about how "ultra rare" bombs and keys would work. Wouldn't the ultra rare bomb just stack with the other ones? Perhaps 2 + 1? What about keys? Maybe a ring with 3 keys? Oh boy I can't fucking wait for it hnng
