Like a boss achievement

Has anyone actually gotten the achievement "like a boss" because I feel like it might be a little bit unfair to actually achieve.
I don't know the requirements exactly because the description only says with your "health intact." I tried for a long while and I finally managed to get a round where I thought my health was intact enough (above 50%), but I didn't get the achievement. Here is one of the final messages:

At the end of your journey you had 78 attack and 118 of 186 health remaining. You had 17 bits in your purse.

I don't know if you need even more health to be considered "intact" but I want to know if anyone has achieved it.

I have. I had 100% health. Did not level up from defeating the last enemy ether.

Re: Like a boss achievement

Wow, I'm impressed.
I assume you used a combination of apple cider and first strike to do this? I would have done that but I had no revealing dress and I had already used all my healing items.

Re: Like a boss achievement

It was using alchemist alicorn and I had a lot of magic. Using force wave to drop the champion's max hp then using scroll of apples to finish it off. The best set is alchemist alicorn student. After all what can not be done with enough magic? I might have O.D. on elixir of wonder.

Re: Like a boss achievement

I find Zebra alchemists to be the best, personally. the potions combined with the talismans is amazing!

Re: Like a boss achievement

Zebra cant use life stealing equipment safely and have a limited amount of magic they can gain. Alicorn can gain a little more magic then zebra, granted it takes longer and it is not by much. Alicorn can use the magic they have from the start, where as zebra might be able to get a magic spell but might go the entire level and not see any. I did not always love the alchemist. In the beginning I found it annoying how the equipment would explode. The modern alchemist (model 2.0) has the ability to become great granted you get lucky enough to get the things you need for the potions you want. Hardest achievement for me was trap master. That reminds me of a bug.

Re: Like a boss achievement

Nice analysis!

I still prefer the Alicorn because of the mass-control force weave, and if I manage to align her with the magic goddess, she becomes a powerhouse.

Re: Like a boss achievement

Can you believe BinaryPony dose not like her? Using force wave can help get the "like a boss" achievement. I have used that spell(/skill?) on some champions to the point that their max hp was in the single digits.

Re: Like a boss achievement

I noted that the main problem was that you had to keep a good supply of Mana, otherwise you're screwed like a lightbulb.
