Yeah right like someone is gonna even get to the last boss with that item taking up a valuable spacebar item slot. PSH.
inb4 stealthangel does it tonight.
I might, but I've been having terrible luck today so I probably won't be able to.
Random Maggy run: NOT A SINGLE DEVIL ENCOUNTER
3 Judas runs: AT LEAST 4 SPACEBAR ITEM DROPS EVERY GAME
Seriously, what is this? Y u not nice to me, gaem?
On a related note: I've used the Shovel on Womb 2 before the Sheol update came out, and it didn't do anything. So I'm assuming it won't do anything now, either.
UPDATE: Oh god, I'm so mad right now. I made it all the way to the Devil with Judas and just 3 hearts (only God knows how) and then, during that fateful battle, bad luck struck. I got a stupid popup and it switched the active window to something else. When I got it back up, poor Judas was pretty dead.
Here's a pic of my setup: http://www.1mage.net/images/isaacsheol.png
Both batteries (but no item to go well with it other than the Book), the Rock, and the split shot are the only notable things I got during this run.
Oh, and I found both a Dollar Bill and Skeleton Key (which I passed up, since it was in an arena room) in the Womb. Why do you hate me so much, game?
