In all seriousness, the way lava currently seems to work is, if you so much as let the corner of your hitbox touch it, you instantly die. Which seems a bit of an over the top way of punishing the player for any small miss-step, especially around an area as vast and full of said lava as the volcano.
Maybe it’d be better if it would just tick your hp down at a threatening level. Right now it kinda feels like you’re being cheated into dying. The floor is lava is only fun for so long. =(
SPOILERS BELOW BUT CONNECTED TO TOPIC
There is this sort of engine / furnace in the Well of Skellos, where one snake-man gives you a special purple gem item, the name esapes me. Getting just a nudge too close to this spot also one-shots the character, saying you got killed by lava.
I’m not sure if the indicator for this zone being off limits is simply not showing up for me (if there is one) or if this is intended or simply a bug.
But could this also not just be a stacking debuff or something? Much like noxious gas?
Always happy to hear experiences and opinions!
Thanks for the time and read.
