Overall, I love this game. I was able to play through the game several times because there were alternative options for which part of the map to traverse through first.
Later, however, I started to put restrictions so that it changed my approach to the gameplay. For example it's something as simple as not using powerful weapons and shards, with the exception of farming (no one likes to spend a lot of time farming for items).
What things do you do or restrict on yourself to change up the gameplay and add more replay value? I'm looking for some fresh ideas that I may not have thought of.

My go to restriction is "no restorative items". That includes ethers and all food items.
First it keeps your stats from becoming OP, and then it changes how you approach everything. Since you can no longer tank damage at all (on higher difficulties), you have to really get your dodging down, especially for bosses. Also, since you can't restore MP or get insane MP regen stats, you have to be smart about how you use your mp so as not to run out in critical moments. Bloodsteal becomes a very valuable shard for certain boss fights with this setup, which is also cool.
Number two is to not use directional shield, as that also forces you to learn to dodge everything properly instead of blocking.

Time 4 Tea: Well it *has* been two years since the game was released but I'm surprised that the forums are this quiet. Shame since this had a very welcoming community.

Time 4 Tea: Me too! There will be a Bloodstained 2 before any of us catch up with Purify (does he have more than one profile?)

Dominique: Did Mr. Welldone ever find his book? If they make Bloodstained 2, I want Dom to redeem herself like Ghaleon did in Lunar 2. My girl can't go out like that. Too tragic and I just don't like it.

EbonAnimus: q2 nearly done and again nothing on dlc, no pc version shipped, but no one says anything and all are sooooo happy about it... really suck, these dorky dlc´s we got could be done in a few days by a single japanese worker, but sadly no one´s doing anything..

Redogan: Yeah, it is getting a little silly how long it is taking for them to finish up the DLC's and ship out a complete PC version with everything. I'd like a complete game now, thanks.

Yän: Sorry but I've rarely read such gross exaggeration. Sure. there hasn't been anything new for a while but the amount of content we got this far in terms of DLC is certainly not something that is doable by a single person. Not that much still missing either.
