Only until I could switch her out for someone better.


Either you died many times to some bosses and/or grinded some levels until you could beat them.

Listen to >>16109848, this is a wise anon.


Lot of people will say she is terrible but don't listen to these brainlets. She has the best base MAtk, MDef and Speed in the game. Great for killing special mobs and slapping the shit outta physical based bosses if geared properly.

I loved this game as a kid, but never managed to beat it. I remember taking an eternity to get through disk 1, then getting walled hard by a boss somewhere on disk 2 or 3, because I refused to grind I tried skipping as many battles as possible, and was too autistic to try grinding so I'd constantly fight it over and over and get my ass kicked.

I was kind of retarded as a kid, the concept of needing to grind to beat bosses in RPGs was completely foreign and incomprehensible to me.

063a89  No.16109932


I do have fond memories of this game. The voice acting was cringy as fuck (jesus christ that Haschel transforming) but Dart and HARPOOOOOOON were cool shame about Lavitz dying, Albert never measures up to him. I'm planning to play it in jap next time

My parents rented this game from Hollywood video for roughly 3 weeks when I was a wee lad. I made it damn near to the end, where there was some dungeon you had to walk on invisible platforms to cross a pit or something. Maybe a prison? I don't remember but I didn't pay attention when they described how to cross it and got stonewalled hard. Then we returned the game and I was sad.

Around 3 years later I bought the game and completed it, and have since tried to replay it in the decades interim. It great, but doesn't hold up particularly well. PS1 rpg battles that take 30 millenia to finish, slow as HELL pacing in the beginning, awkward voice acting, and dated graphics make it a slog to get through. That's fine though since I 100%'d it on the first go around.

Also Madness Hero was the shit. Fuck double slash, fuck volcano, fuck inferno. All that was for nerds. If you couldn't madness hero with 100% accuracy you're a scrub and you need to get out of my face.

eba5e1  No.16110131


>I did that in every jrpg when I was a kid

So did I. RPGs are shit because they give you a mechanic to run from battles but then punish you for using it, but also punish you for not using it anyway because you need to grind either way. I hated that as a child, once I finally realized how it was supposed to work, and I still hate the concept to this day. Grinding is a retarded mechanic used to pad gameplay time without actually adding any substance to the game. Nowadays "RPG elements" is synonymous with "This game isn't an RPG but we added a tonne of mindless grinding to create a skinnerbox so you'll play it for 200 hours".

063a89  No.16110169


The run option is there so you can have a shot at not having to game over when shit goes south, I'd say the game only punishes you if you abuse it. Battles are the main gameplay content of an RPG, and grinding (as in going out of your way to fight more battles than the average you're going to get before the next objective) is an (admittedly shitty) method of difficulty adjusting by the player. The real problem is with random encounters; it probably came to be because of hardware limitations, but games like Chrono Trigger and Lufia 2 made it practically obsolete as early as the 90s, yet it stuck and still remains as the lazy option when making RPGs, since it takes the least effort to implement.

Great game, great soundtrack. Companies did a better job when they created pre-rendered graphics for scenery.

The search for those hidden items sucks, though.

There is some interview where the producer said that the only reason that the game didn't get a sequel was because he forgot about it during the time that Soyny was transiting to the PS2.

4904b1  No.16110249

The anxiety this game gave you by telling you how close a "Random encounter" was going to be was unreal. FF sure as shit didn't do that.

You see that shit turn red and you just try to book it to the next screen before you had to fight some garbage tier enemies.

Been waiting for a reason to bring this up. When I had the game as a kid I never beat it, and I think it's because I put myself into an unwinnable state. I really, really liked the addition system in Legend of Dragoon. So when I recruited Shana and saw that her bow didn't have additions, I said fuck that bitch and as soon as I had a different party member to fill out my team I never used her unless I absolutely have to. Later in the game she gets replaced by Miranda, stuck her back in my pocket and never used her. I don't think Shana/Miranda ever breached level 20.

At some point in the game (I think in disc 3) I catch a ride on some dragon or some big flying thing and get dropped off at some kind of Yggdrasil/World Tree thing. I remember there being no random encounters here and two boss fights: The first being some bug/cocoon/moth 3 stage fight, and at the top of the path a giant nightmare rose who Miranda has to fight solo.

That rose boss ended my game. As far as I can remember either I didn't rotate saves or rotating saves wasn't an option, and there were no random encounters to grind to level Miranda up. I also remember there being no way to catch a ride back to the regular overworld to grind.

Was this an unwinnable state or was there something I could have done?

When you are first playing any RPG, always utilize all characters to keep their levels/powers equally distributed, no matter how shitty a character is. You never know when the game will force you to play as some specific character, with the programmers having assumed that you leveled up all of them.

Meanwhile Albert has better style, easier to manage in battle than lavitz because lavitz's timing was so slow you'd be hitting the attack button prematurely but Albert was quicker and easier for me to match.

Overall, I think he looks cooler too.

You didn't level the characters up to a near level of your party's regulars. That's your only fuckup and redoing the whole game to grind them to the appropriate level is your only solution.

I did a similar thing the first time I got to that point in the game, but none of those bosses should be very difficult. If if does more damage to you when you're guarding than you heal from guarding, then yes, you're fucked, but if not, you can easily turtle all of the solo bosses, healing to full by guarding, and then hitting it once or twice.
