When I use the X Potion from any level, I get teleported to an area where I fight myself. But, I can't seem to win!

Whenever I try to heal, the other me heals as well, so I keep dying before I can kill myself! How can I win?

This question is related, from the original Candy Box. (I'm not sure by how much though as I've yet to play #2.) –  Schism Oct 24 '13 at 13:22

You can find the answer by reading the scrolling text in the background (use the time slowing ring if you find it hard to read). The answer:

Wear the crown you get from killing the Octopus King and just autoattack. You'll survive on 1HP.

It seems to not work if you have enchanted the crown. hmmmm. Does anyone know how to disenchant it? –  Fungo Oct 24 '13 at 17:09

Oh, I see. you just get another one. –  Fungo Oct 24 '13 at 17:58

You must obtain the Octopus King's crown by beating him in the cave. Afterwards, you'll have Self Confidence and can kill your doppelganger. Otherwise, you die when your doppelganger dies.

The easiest way to beat yourself is to do the following: 1: get the crown 2: fail a quest 3: after a while go on a level and drink the potion 4: your clone will have the same health and you will quickly win!

You have to wear the Octopus Crown and Gloves to win with 1 health point.

You actually just need the pink gloves. Your HP will regenerate, but your clone's HP will not. After that, 1v1 him.

Are you sure? I seem to remember I still died even with these and only the crown helped me. –  Lyrical Oct 29 '13 at 9:17
    
This is untrue, the doppelgänger has exactly as much health as you except when you have the octopus crown, without enchantments –  The Ugly Oct 29 '13 at 15:11
