    Oh I bought Etrian Odyssey 2 the other day

    I like the mapping out of dungeons

    what I don't like is the assrapingly hard difficulty

    I mean damn

    What auctions?
    I do not have wifi if that is what the "trade" thing is :<

    But really now, how hard would it be to include clan vs clan in a game people have been making for so fucking long, I mean poke'mon did it, and even has that reduce your dudes back to level 50 in online thing. Or at least I think it does.

    you'll get to the auctions

    seriously I love how I'm been playing this game eighteen hours and I still feel like I've barely scratched the surface

    I played FFTA for over 200, and this game feels so much bigger already

    best forty dollars I've spent in a long, long time

    Yeah Etrian Odyssey will do that to you, did you play the first? The earlier levels of the dungeon in that, had you farming levels a bit, until you get a bunch of different skills, but then even though the monsters kept getting harder at about the same rate, since you had a larger array of abilities they didn't become as butfucking shit hard every time you go down a level, physical damage classes take a while to get going, I only ever went down one stratum in it though, so I didn't have hexer / ronin, and I know alchemist has changed a little in number 2, losing poison for instance, but seriously, you should probably have an alchemist even if you have to go back to town a lot to use him, because spell damage is fucking awesome.

    Yeah, the problem I'm having is that I can't rest between battles. it wouldn't be nearly so frustrating if I could, you know, take a break.

    I keep taking the Bonus CP privilege, but I don't think I need this many cp, I mean I don't seem to have a shortage of them at all, do you get one a bit later for extra loot or something?

    I don't have that privilege yet, where'd you get it?

    I don't know, I almost always take Power+2

    but if for whatever reason I can't bring out my green/white mage (love that combo) then I use Regen

    Do you have access to those recall items yet Mori? I forget what they are called, I could check by loading up my game but I'm mid FF here :P

    They are awesome though, always carry like 4 or 5, takes you back to the previous level of the dungeon I think , or maybe they are a complete recall to town I don't remember, but usually the jump in difficulty of monsters is such that even if you get sent back to a previous level, if you were dying on the other one but doing ok, nothing on the one above should trouble you even if you're on low hp.

    Maybe something to do with twigs or needles, but I could just be creating false memories.

    No, I haven't been able to finish the first damn quest because I get beaten to hell by even the starter monsters.

    I just started with Bonus CP 1 D:

    Probably from those choices at the start?

    Possibly a real spoiler if anyone cares about the FFTA2 story at all.
    I chose stay inside and play video games, and get my warrior to level 75, as those choices

    I actually laughed when was I was presented with those options.

    Possible spoiler for Etrian Odyssey 2, right at the start though, before any fights so it should be fine for you Mori
    I saw at a friend's place, as soon as you go into the forest "Here be dragons" I cracked up, was not expecting that at all.

    Yeah the start in 2 is pretty harsh from what I saw,
    in the first game they don't lead you into the middle of the fucking level and dump you, they let you go in from the start of the level, so you can mull around a bit and level up if you need to, and if you're getting low make it back to town, you should have heal potions or something with you though right?

    When I can see what I have so far I'll post it, but I am kind of pissed that I can't make any items so far to give me a new blackmage spell, I've only done 14 missions, but I've tossed him on whitemage just to learn some crap while I wait for a new item.

    Also don't have anything new for whitemage as a matter of fact, but he can learn cure at least.

    I'm hanging 'steal weapon' and 'steal armour' when I can get my greasy mits on those.

    Yeah, but I get something like... six, the enemies beat the shit out of me, and I can't fucking leave until I map the entire first level.

    you'll get all you need soon enough, I had the same issue but looking back my Black Mage would have been WAY overpowered with Thundara or Blizzarra

    Wait, can't you leave the forest and come back Mori? Like find your way back to the entrance, leave, get healed, go back and map more?

    Actually looking it up, I only had to map that part of the level. Still though, the game is vicious.

    If you really are struggling Mori, and like can't be fucked, there should be maps of the levels on gamefaqs, and if you copy if out the dude won't know the difference.
    Also you can map areas you haven't walked in, like you would be doing above, so if you can judge how large a room is without moving in all the tiles, map it out and move on.

    E: Oh I agree the first is fucking difficult, when you get up to FOES (big enemies), they fuck your shit up to start, there is one fight in the first
    where you are fucking around fighting a giant wolf, after beating a fuck ton more to get to him on the level above him, and this level, and then in his den he calls more wolves on you, and they run at you turn by turn on the map and can join the fight and it is all fuckkkkkkkk!, i beat him after several tries and escaping from combat once i killed him and basically town portaling, hard stuff

    That is when I stopped playing the game though, because I wanted to rework my characters, and it makes you drop like 10 levels off them to do it, also in the second one, I know you can't leave without a full party, at least at the start, I hope for your sake you can later, to get a gatherer dude and chomp down a shit ton of the weaker monsters with a good dude, to power level it.

    What is this shit, charm has had a 30% chance to charm my dudes and these fucking rabits have 2/3 of my team charmed off the first round.
    That is the biggest bullshit, my archer just got charmed, shot someone two squares away "FAILED"
    Squealing with rage, I should just do this with like 2 guys.
