Disney Dreamlight Valley: How to catch a Fugu fish

Whether you’re trying to finish quests or simply want to fill out your recipe collection, Disney Dreamlight Valley has plenty of meals to be cooked, and many of them require the use of fish. A lot of fish species are interchangeable, so they can be used to make simple fish-based meals without worrying too much about their type. However, some meals require rare fish that are tough to round up – as is the case with the elusive Fugu fish.

Among the rarest fish in the game, the Fugu fish requires you to visit a specific area during specific weather conditions, and even then, it can be a time-consuming affair. Don’t worry, though, as we’ll tell you where and how to catch one so you can make some tasty meals with it.

Fugu fish are found in the Dazzle Beach biome, but they spend their time way out, away from reach on most days, meaning you won’t be able to catch one by just casually fishing. Instead, they only show up during rainstorms, so you’ll need to be proactive when it begins raining in your valley.

During a rainstorm, head to Dazzle Beach and begin looking for golden fish pools. If you don’t see any, just fish in the other pools until one spawns. There’s a catch, though – you’re still not guaranteed to catch a Fugu fish from these golden pools and may catch a swordfish sometimes instead. This means that you’ll need to keep at it until you get lucky and eventually snag what you came for.

Additionally, considering there are multiple dishes that require you to use Fugu fish, make sure you bring along one of your villagers who specialize in fishing so that they can provide you with an extra Fugu fish each time you catch one. This should cut down on your grind quite a bit!

How to get Severed Hands in Lords of the Fallen and where to donate them
The Lords of the Fallen undead scene.

Lords of the Fallen offers both cooperative and competitive play, and if you're mostly in it for the latter, you'll want to know all about Severed Hands and the Shrine of Adyr, which is where you'll need to take them to earn yourself some rewards for all of your slaying. Read on to find out how to get Severed Hands and where to find the Shrine of Adyr.
How to get Severed Hands
Severed Hands are obtained by defeating other players in PVP. This can be achieved by slaying someone who has invaded your game or by invading and taking down another person in their game by using the invasion option at a vestige. Once you have some Severed Hands, you'll need to track down the Shrine of Adyr.
Where to donate Severed Hands
You can donate your Severed Hands to the Shrine of Adyr. This shrine won't be accessible early in the game, so you'll need to progress through the Forsaken Fen before you're able to visit it.

To reach the Shrine of Adyr, make your way to the bridge where you face off against the Ruiner boss. On this bridge is an Umbral entity blocking a path you can only see while in the Umbral Realm. You can cleanse the entity by passing under the archway on the opposite side of the bridge and soulflaying a spot on the backside of it.

Like many games in the Soulslike genre, Lords of the Fallen features a multiplayer component, which includes both cooperative and competitive options. Taking part in online play can provide you with multiple types of currencies that can be donated at shrines for some useful rewards. If you like co-op, we'll tell you how it can earn you some Pilfered Coins and where you can donate them to get some fresh items and armor tincts.
How to get Pilfered Coins
Pilfered Coins are obtained by engaging in co-op with other players. This can be done by visiting a vestige and either joining another player or having them join you for seamless online play. Every time you slay a boss of any type, you'll gain some Pilfered Coins, which you'll then need to take to the Shrine of Orius.
Where to donate Pilfered Coins

You can donate your Pilfered Coins to the Shrine of Orius back in Skyrest. While facing the vestige here, go left just a little bit and through the door near a Stomund, Captain of the Fidelis. Down the stairs here and next to Nathaniel, you'll find the Shrine of Orius.

How to beat Pieta in Lords of the Fallen

As is expected from the Soulslike genre, Lords of the Fallen is filled to the brim with immensely challenging boss fights that cap off stretches of perilous exploration. While you'll engage in a simple boss encounter during the tutorial, the first real showdown that you'll have is with Pieta, She of Blessed Renewal, who will test your reflexes and patience to prepare you for even tougher fights to come. Here are some tips for how to beat her.
How to beat Pieta, She Of Blessed Renewal
When you're ready to face off against Pieta, you'll want to be sure you've prepared first by using up any Vigor you're carrying by leveling up at the closest vestige. Also, make sure you've spoken to the Iron Wayfarer just before the ladder leading to the ramparts where you face the boss. If you've spoken to him there and exhausted his dialogue, you'll be able to summon him beside the boss door to help you in the fight. He's great at keeping aggro and dishing out a bit of extra damage, though you can expect he'll perish around the time you reach the second phase of the fight.

When you're all set, engage Pieta and get in close to her. Her first phase is fairly easy, consisting primarily of slow, telegraphed melee combos that are easy to dodge once you have the rhythm down. She will, however, occasionally hold her sword up for a moment, at which point you'll need to wait a split second before dodging left or right to avoid a high-damage beam of Radiant magic. Otherwise, wail away on her until you reduce her health to around the 70% mark, at which point she'll slam her sword into the ground and begin her second phase.
