What rank are you?
Has anyone reached Diehard (Master difficulty) yet? If so, you have godlike skills! :)

Tips to increase rank:
Almost everything you do in the game has an effect on your rank. Here are a few ways to boost your rank points that you may be unaware of.

-Exiting a room that still has an unopened chest or ability on the floor will reward you with lots of bonus points.
-Each heart you leave on the floor will reward you with points.
-Each time you lose a heart, or die you lose some rank points, so exciting a room without getting hit will reward you with lots of points.
-Choosing a hard route rewards you with rank points.

There are many more ways to earn or lose rank points. I'll have to write a guide soon.

Diehard rank here. Didn't know not getting hit and leaving items behind gained you extra points. I always picked up the spare hearts to convert it to treasure for the chest.

Though I do wonder, at the higher ranks every route turns 'hard', and so do all the bosses. But beating a hard boss does not unlock the achievement for beating the normal version. How am I supposed to get the achievement for the 'normal' boss that I'm missing without tirelessly grinding myself to a low rank again by suiciding lots and lots of times?

So far, I've only get the first rank up... Then die aftewards... And go back to the starting rank...

@JiePie The achievement unlock issue has been fixed for the next patch (March 12th)
Defeating a hard boss will now award you the normal achievement as well if you haven't already unlocked it.

while fighting the final boss dont attack him but let the dungeon master summon those blue clones of him and keep killing them , once you have killed enough of them the dungeon master will come out to fight you but hes REALLY hard to fight without Light Foot ability

Does skipping the big final chance at the end offer rank points too?

The gold chest? No, skipping it won't give you any xp.
