FINAL UPDATE: Whatever reason level 20 wouldn't consistently spawn new enemies for me but whatever.
The white blue half person with arms and half snake body on level 20 DROPPED THE ARMOR. So, with that, 3 armors, 2 helmets and 0 sword/katana.
HOWEVER! After 3 hours of hardcore fighting and going around killing everything and waiting for enemies to spawn, I encountered 2 gray with sword and shield guys and a blue lizard. Killed one of the gray guys and the lizard and ran towards the last one with my staff. After a long and arduous battle, it finally dropped the katana; also on level 20.
WHICH IS TOTALLY CRAZY! You krazyninjaman...3... I can't imagine the stuff you must have went through trying to find it. That's waaaaay too many drops of crap you already have. If I could, I would totally throw you one of my armors at you.
Actually I haven't beaten the Phoenix and the 2 dragons. I absolutely have no intentions of beating them partly due to me being too damn lazy to level Koji who is still at level 16 XD. Clair is at a modest 128.
Right now I'm gonna throw my save onto my computer and start a new game in a bit. Your talk of the randomized nature of the game piqued my interest lately. Just how far is it random? Will my enemy drops be the same as yours? Will I just get nothing or 25 armors with no helmet and katana? Can there be a crazy ass Buster Sword drop that no one knows about? WHO KNOWS!
This topic is like the olympic flame of this board, keeping it alive, letting it have life, and I am its steward. It is my responsibility, nay, my DUTY to uphold my oath as to never let this topic die, in doing so, letting this board die, renaging my vows.
I do not care for this topic reaching 500 posts, as 500 posts is simply an arbitrary standard set by some arbitrary authority. All I know is I will do what I can despite the confines of this arbitrary apparatus I have to work with.
It is one of the causes of immorality, when one becomes enslaved, by their own hand, living far beyond their own means. - krazyninjaman3
