Massive bitchiness alert.
When you reach Yaschas Massif 1X AF, there is a quest to fight some cie'th named gorgyra. I have to admit, someone was trolling when they made this asstart. Fight is easy, til it starts filling the battle with some miasma that generates status ailments every few seconds. I could almost deal with tha np, but one of those effects is a daze that lasts a good 10 seconds. K, I know what you're thinking, equip something to prevent it, can't cuz my accessory capacity is too low to equip it. In any case, daze isn't the worst part, I have some 50 remedies on hand and a three pack med paradigm including one kick ass green chocobo. The PROBLEM comes in the last leg of the fight when he gets desperate. The miasma crap starts landing effects faster and he starts spamming ( he usez it beforehand too, but spams when near death) a move called anguished melody. Apparantley it deals damage based on how many status effects you've compiled. If I have more than 3 at any time, it deals 3-4000 damage, killing me twice over, and that's per character. Wouldn't be so bad if he didn't use it every 3 hits, but heaven help me if I blink, I get nailed. He has about 840k hp, which at this point in game is hefty by any standards. I have gotten him down to 42k in 2 fights, and about 50k+ in the majority of the rest. My last encounter ( the one before I fucking flung my controller in disgust) was at 65,437 last I checked, and then 8 minutes of non stop healing trying to stay alive long enough to switch paradigms and land a quick volley of magic. Finally got sacked about 3 minutes ago now. Gotta say, bullshit is pretty stinky guys, and this definitely ain't no axe bodyspray I'm catching wind of. Gonna try coming back to it later, maybe get some better equipment or higher accessory capacity.
Btw what the hell is with the shop, 6 areas I've run through and nothing new in stores, outside of fucking monster clothes. Was terri ly excited to get a fucking red propeller for my flanbolero.
