    This achievement is much simpler than it sounds.

    Since each room is randomized as you go through each of the worlds, you will have random drops. DO NOT PICK UP ANY OF THE ENEMY DROPS as doing so will immediately void the achievement for that run and you will have to start over.

    This also includes any of the ritual rooms as well, as those count as blessings.


    For simplicity sake, you can reduce the games speed in the settings, and play at a slow speed, making sure not to accidentally pick up any items as this game is a heavy button masher. This is what I did (set it around 30-40%) and got it on my second try.

    If you mess up, just start over and try again, wont be too bad.

    KhevaKinsCan be made easier by taking the Chaos perk 'Hp', which removes all Health drops from the runs.

    EarthboundXHmm, I accidentally picked up a rage refill after beating the third boss and this still unlocked at the end.

    I guess it when says "item", it means the attack, reload power ups etc? Or it could just mean the health restoring items you can find, both as pickups, and through the altar blessings.

    So power ups may be OK.

    rhollidayI can confirm that you can pick up weapons and items that do not mention HP. I did not try and purchase any items with blood or HP. It's definitely faster and safer to not pick up an items, but if you do you're fine as long as they aren't HP related.

    Also note that you cannot cancel out of the blessing dialog so I wouldn't even risk going into the room if you can avoid it, especially if it's below you.
