    The biggest tip I can give for this is: buy and use the Neptune Gun upgrade! It makes all the difference. But be careful: when you get hit by an arrow from the Pyro Archer (Flameslinger) you get stunned for a moment. So if you're still pressing A you will fire an unwanted Harpoon.
    When that happens, just die. The game will say Gill Grunt needs to rest, but just press Y and you start right from the beginning of the boss fight. No need to replay the entire level.

    And try not to eat the health pickups when your at (almost) full health. That's just a waste. Save it for when you really need it.

    I also recommend wearing a hat that gives you some armor. Gill Grunt's basic armor stat is laughable.

    Last tip: remember the patterns for the fire spell. When you get caught in it you lose A LOT of health.

    Maybe not the best solution out there, but, yeah. It's better than nothing I guess. It might help someone until someone writes up a better solution?

    Grimace221Can I just say I hate this achievement? There is so much that can screw it up. The disappearing food has cost me this one almost every time.

    DwaggieniteJust a word of advice. If you can get the fire center of the area in between you and the third boss (Eruptor, I think it's called), then you can fire the water cannon you have easily, if you stand back, and not risk taking any damage at all in that portion of the boss fight.

    Just to add, you can change your skylander during the fire magical part of the boss fight. Do the Gill Grunt waterhose attack during the fight against the minions, and between one and the other miniboss, change it to do not suffer any damage from the magical attacks.

    H3rmitardBrilliant! struggled with gil-grunts speed, swapped over to spyro for the second spell wave, grunt was back up to take out all 3 minions super easily!

    MangonovichRemember also you can use multiple gill grunts.

    Also the potion/shield/time glass magic items are helpful, especially the hourglass in the final battle with 3 badguys

    At the last stage, with three minions, I added another player/Skylander as a decoy. This worked fine, making it easier for me to fire away.

    I had my Gill at level 8 (fully upgraded hose) and boosted with 5 completed challenges. +15 shield (hat)
