Hello all ! So as the title says it, I’m having rather huge difficulties to beat that darnable and acursed robot ! At the end of the second chapter I believe, your suppose to beat that thing in the hangar of the Elsa, but it wiped out my whole team in 4 rounds ! How the hell are you suppose to avoid these laser-beam/tremors attacks. The first tremor wave killed Shion in one hit (about 300+ and more of damage).
Of course she’ll never as hard as Miang in Xenogears, but that, is another story.
His laserbeam attack doesn’t do that much damage to Cosmos, since I boosted my ether-defense alot. And Corn want a friendly advise ? Take Chaos and use his gear, he hurts the enemy for about 150 of damage each turn !
That’s probably one of the hardest bosses in the game. If I recall correctly, he only uses his special attack when he gets a turn and the wheel is pointing to the correct icon (if that happens to be critical you’re fucked, believe me). I seem to remember you being able to cancel his special attack by using a boost to prevent him from getting a turn on the correct slot, you might want to give it a try. You should also consider wandering around to level boost for a bit. Your gears are strong but the fact that they can’t be revived means that they’ll never be as strong as your characters on foot. I finished the game without using the gears and I had a lot less trouble on most fights than other people who had the strongest gear.
And Corn, if you think you can finish every rpg without leveling up, then you probably hadn’t been playing rpgs that long. Hell, the fact that you can finish some games without level boosting is my number 1 gripe with most of the new rpgs.
Some games, however, have very low encounter rates coupled with little experience gains, coupled with hard bosses. Shining The Holy Ark is like this. To be able to beat some of the bosses, including the final boss, you will have to do a little bit of power levelling.
Then there’s 7th Saga, which I’ve heard to be incredibly anal about power levelling.
Ca fait trop longtemps que j’ai joué, je me souviens pas des mécaniques exactes du boost, mais me semble que chaque un de tes characters est associés avec un bouton. Quand c’est pas le tour du character et qu’il a un boost, tu pesses le bouton et ça devient sont tour.
Don’t worry, I also swear in french when I’m really pissed off, it’s usually a sign to run.
Yeah when I begin to ‘‘sacre’’, its usualy a sign that I will become very aggresive and violent.
I prefer french to english though…'cause I’m a ‘‘Souverainiste’’.
‘Nyhow, so you say your a WindowsXp repair Expert ? Explain me that then ! Ever played Vampire Bloodlines ? When I finished talking to the archeologist (Johansen somethin’) and when I get out of the Hunters hiddeout the fucker sets a bomb, and you have less then one minute to make it to the boat to escape the god forsaken place ! Even if I make it in time, the game begin to load, and then instantly return to my desktop ! Bloody hell !
