Mantid - Help / 3th new game now
i love the game but now I had my 3th new game restart for better results when having this first boss fight with Mantid, still even now i have more color and heart´s still runing out of color during fight .... HELP , i do start the fight with the first 5 hearts u get, all full with color (100%Anger and random)

and for the fight
/ Crimson 140 / Azure 102 / Amber97 / Emerald 111 / Gold22/

there is no way for me to avoid or delay the fight as it seems, """do i have to start over again for more color to fight with ?""" yes i checked out YT for help, does not help

...Mantid is almost impossible that early in the game. You really want to avoid fighting the bosses until you are much farther along in the game. For now you should complete the quest Mantid gave you (I blieve that was collect the color from the walls of the mine).

<spoilers>
Mantid only gives you Expose. If you try to use it I believe you will hear Sister Death tell you something is missing. Go to the 1st Sister, she’ll tell you to visit either Uta or Ava for more info. Go to Uta for the missing glyph, and Ava for access to the other mine.

Why were you trying to fight Mantid so early on? Don't be so eager to confront the Brothers, especially with so few hearts and in such an early cycle.

If you press J and read your thoughts on the mission, it flat out says "You cannot win in a fight against Mantid right now, so you'd best do as he instructs."

I don't think he is trying to, I think he somewhere missed why he is failing the mission, probably didn't here the nameless sister's hints when the mining fails since you only have expose at first.

Ah. That makes considerably more sense--though it brings up another concern. The Void can be subtle, so unless you either get in the habit of tapping J and reviewing what's been recently said (or paying uber close attention in the first place), I dunno if OP will catch on to the more complex missions. :/

Still. Yeah. S'fine.

Not only are you not supposed to fight Mantid this early into the game (or any Brother for that matter), but Mantid is one of the most annoying Brothers to deal with. He is kind of a cheater and you have to know the trick to do any dammages to him. You can waste a lot of precious color before you figure it out.

So you should just avoid fighting with him, unless he confront you later in the game or you really want him dead.
