Well even without 4x Bloody Armor users Healing Star restores as much HP as Fairy Light/Heal without having to put Rena in the party so to break the game I will still never have Ashton and all mages that aren't Rena join the party at all.
I understand you like to use Bloody Armors. Thats fine but would you please shut up about them THIS DECADE!? --- "God didn't create humans... No!, Its humans who created God" "Dr. Londez, "Cowboy Bebop: Brain Scratch (#1.23)" (1999)
Disc 1 of Star Ocean The Second Story is complete, wrapping up the half that includes anime cutscenes. Disc 2's coming next. It might be a while before I can get it started due to technical difficulties with volume levels, but I fully intend to finish it.
I had the same levels for the Hoffman ruins but I will only use Claude Dias Opera and Chisato to break the game and yes I had a 999 use Healing Star after Opera first joins but before starting the ruins itself.
So I ditched Rena for most of the game after having a 999 use healing star the only time Rena's required is during the 2 PC only party (phoenix boss) in the CoT I simply Bloody Armored Claude will having Rena still die in 1 hit (from the Life Flayers missiles) on earth mode.
