Land accurate attacks!

If your timing is exceptionally on point, you will perform an “accurate strike”. Accurate strikes do not deal more damage, but they do net you a coin. There are weapons, shields, and companions that increase the timing window fro accurate strikes to help you land them more often.

Accurate strikes are important because if you are stuck on a fight, they are the only thing that will keep generating coins for you. Remember that you do not actually get any coins if you cannot defeat your foe!

Buy the first companion Cnut!

Try to buy the very first companion, Cnut, as fast as you can. Cnut will attack your foe for one point of damage every 2.25 seconds. This does not seem like it is too fast, but it is incredibly helpful in the long run considering that your first couple of weapons only deal one damage, and you will face monsters with 30+ health as soon as level 10.

Watch the sword and/or targets!

To help with your timing, it may be helpful for you to keep your eyes on the sword. The swords speeds up as the monsters gets closer to death, so you will need to follow along with it carefully.

However, if the monster you are fighting as vanishing targets, you are going to have to keep an eye on the targets to remember where they were. As soon as the targets appear, keep your eyes on them even after they fade away. Wait until your sword swings into view then strike!

Keep practicing the same monster!

If you are having trouble with a specific monster, do not worry – just keep trying and do not give up! Monster patterns are different every time you fight them, but their gimmick remains the same. For example, a monster with vanishing targets will always have them, but a monster with normal targets will never have the vanishing targets.

Complete the achievements!

Unlike other games, achievements in Marginalia Hero are not just for coin rewards – they actually unlock new equipment for you! So, you should try to do as many of them as you can. Most of them you will complete naturally by just playing the game, but others you will need to go out of your way to complete.

The achievements that come to mind are the ones that require you to use a specific set of gear, like the “Bellicose Peasant” and “99% Organic” achievements. If an achievement unlocks a new piece of equipment, you will see it listed in the weapons and shields list.
