difficulty jumps much?

#1YonimaruPosted 7/14/2012 5:31:27 AM
So i noticed quite the enemy stat jump just from Temple of Trials alone, but when i got to the first Titan, Darius, (correct me if wrongly named) the enemies are one hitting Lapis, Hector AND Fang without issue...i'm only level 5, and am currently farming to upgrade everyone's armor/weapons to better stuff (cotton sets.....bad, i know. :P)

any other tips i could have pointed out?

I survived half of Darius on cotton and wood, personally. Something's wrong here . . .

i really shuold try that as well...so far i just equipped those kaiser knuckles on Hector and he's slaughtering peeps with 100 damage (spell damage so far as well)

i'm likely just doing something wrong since games like this always strike as harder than they are @@"

It gets a bit intimidating when you reach the later floors of Darius (the 2 levels of the ark at the very top). I was level 20 with the best equipment you could buy or synth and I was getting stomped. Not stomped, but to the point where I had to run from fights to ensure I could make it to the boss with decent hp/mp.

It took me about 5 reloads to finally kill the boss at level 20, but it was a really good feeling when I finally pulled it off. Just a hint: using Hector's charge skill (Power Up?) followed by his burst annihilates the boss's top row.

Well even at level 20 when it took me 5 + resets to beat the said boss that ends the chapter Hector himself was the only PC I had left once the head and 2 arms get killed.

But at the same time I barely had 50 HP left on Hector and did NOT have Access to the level 2 bursts since those took me 28 total levels to unlock.

Heck after the 2 feet of the boss die I couldn't even survive the 5 attacks the boss does in 1 turn (+100 physical damage) and I had its spells do like 3 times as much.

Hence level 20 IMHO is too weak to take it on.

the boss was easy. dragon's victory + harpes = 200/300 per hit.

geh.. The goblins were quite hard for me to survive with.. I don't think i should mess with Darius if it's like this..
