The sorceress recently gave me an option to buy the ability to "surpass myself" in exchange for a million lollipops. I bought that ability. Afterwards, the sorceress now says this:

Sorceress: You are now able to surpass yourself. Congratulations !
You are now able to surpass yourself. Congratulations !

  • What triggers the sorceress into selling you the ability to surpass yourself?
  • And what does it mean if I am now "able to surpass myself"?
  • What changes do the "ability to surpass yourself" do?
  • @LessPop_MoreFizz I asked this question before that. I am asking about the details of what "being able to surpass myself" does, and edited this question to further differentiate it. This question also currently does not have an answer in that other question of mine, as this was not asked about in that question. Commented May 5, 2013 at 5:31

    I really don't feel like this is the same question as the linked 'duplicate'. Did you guys even read them before voting to close?

This is obviously a spoiler; don't read on if you don't want a spoiler

Eventually you will find a quest called Yourself; in it, you literally fight yourself. Everything you do is mirrored, buffs and whatnot too, so it is impossible to win. The Surpass Yourself increases the damage done to the You (Clone) while not damaging You (Player), making the level completable.

  • What changes, exactly, when one buys the "ability to surpass yourself"? How does it make one's original self better than the other "self" (the clone), enabling the original self to beat the other "self"? Commented May 6, 2013 at 5:07
  • Everything you do is mirrored, buffs and whatnot too, so it is impossible to win. Tell that to Zelda 2 and Prince of Persia. ;-)
