Yea or Nay? Setting Minimum Damage on a party member you are going to fight will lower damage taken.

Extending a combo? Can you continue a combo past switching targets?

For switching targets use the analog stick.


Here is something I (think I ) have observed. When a battle starts there is a lag before I get to input commands, but if I mash [X] or [O] when the encounter begins my input is accepted.

About settings on party members affecting boss battles.

I know that this is not always the case. In Tales of Symphonia:Dawn of the New World there is a battle with preset values.

This said I fought the boss battle with Victor a few times. When I had MINIMUM damage set on Ludger, Victor's hits were puny. I am tempted to write a cheesing the game FAQ saying how to nerf the bosses.

I doubt that this works with Sienna Bronc but I will give it a try anyhow.

Ludger's Reconaissance: is a telltale of an enemy which goes underground provided that enemy has a weak anatomical spot.

RE the MINIMUM damage exploit. Now that I am play unknown mode I am not seeing it so more work on this.

Minimum Damage Exploit: it still works but boss is doing 10 times as much damage in Unknown as in Hard.

It turns out that there is an easy way to steal from Sienna Bronc. 'BeyondTheWorlds' points out that having Leia in your party with both Treasure Fang and Steal Plus and Elize with Chicken Run makes it possible to get Omega Elixers from Sienna Bronc by encountering and running.

There is a cave by Sienna Bronc's spawn spot in Xagut Floodmeadow and in Sapstrapth Highroad. Once Sienna Bronc appears and you escape entering and exiting the cave (without leaving the area) will cause Sienna Bronc to reappear. Basically you have 15 Omega Elixers for each boss battle.

It seems that you get the item more than 50% of the time this way.

Big thanks to this FAQ and the other 'continued' sticky. I just beat the game today and I appreciate the help in avoiding missing the missables and getting the endings. Thanks!
