    So I finished the game and got the Hard Mode. Are there any differences despite that you lose two hearts you get hit (difference in dungeons, side quests)?
    Looking forward to your experiences

    You can't find any hearts or heart plants unless you're carrying the heart medal.

    Just a heads up, you dont lose 2 hearts when you get hit, you lose double the amount of what you lost in normal mode.
    The skellie guarding the beetle for example, hits for 4 hearts...

    Theres no difference in the content though, its just harder.

    Okay, thats a little disappointing. I thought it would be like the master quest, with harder dungeons. But if its just the same, guess then I´m off to Rayman Origins.
    Has someone completed the Hard Mode yet? Is there something like a "very hard mode" after that.

    On this subject, don't suppose anyone knows if there's a save file with Hard Mode unlocked already?

    It's a good thing they put in a bunch of seats, that let you fully recover your hearts.
    As well as give you two empty bottles, and access to potions and fairies from the get-go.

    I would be dead SO fast on hard mode. I always end up swinging my sword into something electrical hurting myself.

    LOL I didn't know that! Was wondering why they provided all that seating. Does this work in hard mode too? (probably not...)

    Yes, thats the only mean of replenishing your hearts except pots and fairies.

    Well, once you get the heart medal from a goddess chest, you're allowed heart drops again, but it takes a slot in your pouch.
    You can get the heart medal in the middle of your first visit to Lanayru desert, so you only have to go two dungeons without heart drops.

    At that point, Hero mode becomes double damage mode instead. Honestly I think I'll stick with the heart medal because it's tedious having to keep stocked on potions and make more trips.

    Since you can keep your bugs and treasure, hero mode shouldn't be too hard. Just collect enough bugs for 5 double heal potions, and that's it. In the beginning you don't even need the full health potions, you could save the bugs for the later game.

    I never used enhancement system, except the metal shield I upgraded it one time.
    I don't know if the collected items will have some use later so I keep them just in case and end never using them :P

    Invincibility potion?
    Ah, I don't even knew it existed :P


    I died once in normal mode :(
    on the Buddha boss (bad start until I get how to hit his chest).
    I still haven't completed the game, I just got the second flame on the boat.


    About the heart medals, you can buy one at Jerry's shop too, long before unlocking the lanyu's chest.


    I don't understand why we have 5 pages of items in the store, I don't even have the first line fully used.
    Do you store a lot of things? Maybe I missed a lot...
