Yes, that crystal boss in chapter 3? Totally evil. A super AoE attack that anybody at lvl. 44 can barely survive on Default? I should have overleveled at that keep.
It's physical based I think, so protects go a long way there. That guy was a pissant for me too, so don't feel bad.

I also just arrived in Florem and it's around this time that my desire to see nothing but checkmarks in the tutorial quest log, and my desire to pay as little attention to the "social" elements in the game are starting to clash.

I don't get the Norende weapon shop.  Half of it is waaaaayy too expensive and it doesn't balance out in how much it benefits your stats.  One item is like 18,000 pg and raises my atk power by about 20.
This is more like old rpgs, small stat bonuses give actual payoffs. A 20 point attack boost can give like 500 damage to attacks, and a 20 int boost is pretty freaking huge.

Code:
I blewed up a crystal
...and it was good.

Just beat the vampire, everyone's level 83. I was cheap and had everyone sub ninja for utsusemi casting and turn tables for free bp. Pushover fight that way.
Jesus man, I was less than half that at that stage of the game on hard mode. Where did you even grind? Guessing it was around the world map where you go for chapter 4 but it must have taken forever.
I was just outside of everlast tower. Had a pretty solid method for it. I had my 3 melee types circulating between a job I wanted leveled for them and a job that either had S or A in daggers or was ninja, gave em acrobatics for sub, and boosted attack as high as possible along with double falcon knives. The one guy who would be my workhorse would double crescent moon and everyone else would either do an area attack of just vanilla attacks to clean up. Fights lasted 3 seconds while I watched tv. Growth Egg helped tremendously though, was getting 600 jp off the 6 pack of those little root looking monsters (and 6k exp). Once I wisened up and bought 3 alarm earrings to stop getting enemy first strikes, I was swimming in jp and level ups. Been playing too much ffxi and ffxiv, grinding is fairly second nature to me, so I'm not easily bothered.


To be fair, I went from 50 to 83 this morning, so take that as you will.

Chapter 4 has had me regretting being so predisposed to 4x speed. I get impatient watching things happen and before you know it, WHOOPS my whole party ate 4 uninterrupted thundagas and died. Of course, then I switcb my tactics a tad and spend 3 dungeons on auto fight again because I beat the competition (in this case, ninja with 2 falcon knives spamming crescent moon off valkyrie for instant wins). Right up to the Gigas Lich, I've smoked every fight first round....except for the triceratops looking baddies in everlast tower...they've ruined my 1 turn bonus every time. Now I'm fighting a series of dragons around the world map for access to the last class quest and they're ruining my damn life. I've resorted to the cheapest abuse for wins, lots of utsusemi and ramparts. I feel dirty not just plowing through battles with regular hits.

So it seems that a number of abilities are mistranslated. Like completely opposite to how they're described,such as more money and master thief. Way to go, SE :(

Rob Blind for doubles, of course!

Holy fuck I stopped leveling too soon, shit is kicking my ass now. Fights are easy enough, but enemies do ridiculous damage to me. Even trash random encounters are 2 shotting me, and aside from two handed on pretty much all melee users and Agnes as my mage, all my gear is pretty standard. If I whiff an attack round I pretty much guarantee someone eats it generally. Bosses are frightening now, if I don't prep well or watch for counter abuse, I die quick. Swordmaster fight....jeez every round I got nailed by a counter for at least 1500 health. Definitely exciting now, to say the least.

Just got ninja btw....evil times now.

No puzzles is kinda sad. Boring layout, drab backrounds....doesn't really scream groundbreaking.

Got my first streetpass hit today. I was all OH SNAP!

My gym got shutdown for permit violations 2 weeks ago. I am incredibly depressed.

Speaking of kicking ass, omg Ranger. First job I maxed out, and with the support ability precision, I'm landing 4k crits on enemies. It's ungodly. Forget it if it's flying, it roughs out to a 7k hit on crit. Amazing output.

Ranger is great early game but falls down later. Angel bow is great until chapter 4
I'm using a gale bow right now, and I switched to thief just to play with bows more (on tiz).


Just fought the fire temple boss...took a few tries cuz I didn't actually go tactical, just blew attacks. That does not work on him, fair warning.
1406  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 10, 2014, 01:38:56 PM
I can safely say that not ALL of the quests are easily noticed. I almost missed the salve maker because I didn't walk up a set of stairs in chapter 3...and now I'm worried I may be missing ninja as well. Chapter 3 seems like its hell bent on throwing you off if you don't search adequately.

Quick heads up to everyone with money issues and merchants. The support ability "More Money" does not stack in any way. 4 merchants, 2 merchants and 2 others using the support ability...no way does it work. The description is bogus, and according to what I read, it DOES stack with items that boost money received. Granted I can't test it yet, but in case you're like me and trying to amass huge amounts of pg, leveling all of your party as merchants is a massive waste of time.

Continuing in updates, for you monk users, check back on your equipment frequently. You can quickly level up past the best claws available and not realize it, actually nerfing your attack power by not being bare handed. I lost about 20 attack using bastet claws when I realized it and saw a massive boost when I took them off. Friendly warning to anyone who is getting mad at monk, it really kicks ass.

So does anybody know what the deal is with the guy in the Wind Shrine? I half expect him to be some sort of sidequest related but usually there's more of an indication as to what's up with somebody than "You're not good enough. Come back tomorrow.".

It is part of the summoner sidequest. Once you get the job he will "test" you to see if you are worthy of that summon.
Fair warning, go in with a lot of hp and save first


Scratch that, just make sure you save first. Priority 1.

Black Mages make Orthros easy.  I had a much bigger problem with the next crystal boss than him, until I realized that
Code:
his physical attack is also water-based, so you can use water defense skills to lower the damage you take.

Also, friendly warning: There's a spoiler in the artbook just by placement of one of the character's art in a certain section.  I'd recommend not going more than, say, half in.

On an unrelated and pointless note, I love the Hartschild theme.  It's really the first noteworthy song on the soundtrack for me.
I took the same approach for it too, brave blitz 4 spells and melee the rest. Eat 4 hits which wasn't so painful, and cura twice during the next blitz. It works pretty well, and I've had experience turned off for roughly 70% of chapter 2 so I was only 38 fighting the boss.

I gotta say, auto fight and speed up is awesome.

Heh heh...I was level 29 when I fought orthros. I just braved and cast 4 fires on the ice head and melee blitzed with the other 3 members. After getting slapped for 4 rounds from the surviving head, I blitzed again and won. That's pretty much been the strategy for bosses since.

I've had exp off for like 3 dungeons now, and I have found no difficulty in any fights. The hardest fight so far was the red mage fight because it kept charming my guys who would then clock my team with a strong hit and 1 shot me. So I'm probably still overleveled.

I'll add you in a few minutes, moncapitan.
