Now this is just a request of some tips, but I now have a Fighter, Mage and Thief. I have just reached Dharma Castle, but I'm not sure if should change classes just yet. What would you suggest? I am planning on changing my Thief into a Cleric/Sage so that he will be able to Heal first, and then perhaps my Mage into a Warrior after she has learned BeDragon.
If you have a Zen Scroll, one of which is in the tower north of Dharma, well, you appear to know about that already. Yes, you chould have a Cleric/SAge in your party, and I assume you wanted a challenge originally without a cleric in your original party?
The first portion of the game is rather easy, so I decided it'd be best to change to a cleric later. I stumbled upon a portion of gold, over 60 Grand at the Romaly Arena so I did not have to worry about money for Herbs and Inns. I am quite a heavy grinder as well, so bosses such as Kandar did not worry me about health. I was already level 23-25 by the time I reached Baharata Cave. :D
