Spoilers for the entire story:

(click to show/hide)

This is literally what I noted in the other post where I spoiled everything with that big epic warning. It kind of feels like The Force Awakens in this regard: he had to prove that he could do something first, so he decided to make something different, but switch roles around and call it a day.

One thing that I missed the most in Bloodstained RotN was the creepiness on the CV games. The supposedly dark and scary areas were not so impressive.

Just remember the perfect SotN Catacombs. This is probably the best creepy area in ALL Castlevania games. I missed that a lot in RotN.

Yeah, this is what I feel is missing most from ROTN: this should look like an old, beaten down castle with lots of history and visual storytelling. There should be blood on spikes and remains of previous adventurers laying around in certain rooms. Instead, we get this clean-cut castle that, yes, was supposedly "resurrected" by Gebel implying it's creation being fairly recent, but it just doesn't have anything that makes it look like a dangerous place to travel through. Not to mention, remember how awesome it was to kill the Zombie Soldier in SOTN? With blood splattering everywhere? For a game with "blood" in the title, the most blood you'll see is that blood pool at the beginning of the game. None of the enemies die in a way that's satisfying with the same flair as everything exploding like in SOTN. They just kind of...fade out of existence.

It feels like they had ideas and the basis ready to go, but didn't quite put in the details to make areas standout and be memorable as opposed to being a castle with the only atmosphere being whatever music track was playing for whatever situation your in.

Well I for one enjoyed the brightly colored Tsarist Russian interpretation of the final staircase to Dracula's throne room. It was... different.

Got to the final boss but she has WAY too much HP and she keeps healing her different animal body parts so I can't make any progress.

Use Summon Hellhound.  If I didn't know any better I'd say that they made an error with the damage on that shard.  Crushes everything.

You need to focus on the one she is, don't hit random, most of the attacks are easy to dodge. Beat her on lv49. For health replenish, try to cook as many dishes you can and potions. Also axe throwing, can do some decent damage.

For the final boss, I used the Millionaire shard and got the three watermelon slots. There was a flood of 127 damage hit markers everywhere, I'm sure that attack must have done a couple thousand damage. However, I had that shard maxed out so I get the watermelon slots fairly often.

The fight ended shortly after.

Riga storaema + heretical grinder + fairy familiar loaded with healing items.  Last boss is cake.

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.

Name the last thing on that list that you acquired and we can tell you where you need to go next.  That said, I'm willing to bet that you're missing:
