I'm starting a new thread because the title on the last one has become so misleading.
So, to pick up where we left off:
yeah I was like 'ehh why play hard mode when I can play normal' I wouldnt go as far as to say wuss because I didn't choose easy. but now that I look back proud mode is preferrable since some of these side quests are HARD... all these posters in under 30 seconds... FUCK! and you know, its hard and annoying, annoyingness in videogames is really really annoying.
and I just found out that completeing the journal also means completing the moogle synthesis shop shit... I might just replay the whole damn thing on proud mode and finish before doing this shit.
you tube is looking nice.
I'm finally at the last save point so I got the goddess of fate cup and all the rest, I didn't beat it with 3000 points though but all I need is one more orichalcum + in order to get my ultama weapon, then I'm going on to Sephiroth, then I get the Fenrir which supposedly helps with the maniac phil training thing that I can't get more than 600 points on...
and I'll just have to see about the item synth and the one heartless I somehow managed to never encounter that will cost me the secret ending... I wanna do the sephiroth quest regardless so I'll worry about that for now. I don't have the 'glide' ability yet though which I'm reading is extremely helpful... and since every time I've tried to face him in the past he has KICKED MY ASS ROYALLY I think I can use all the help I can get. It's not fair, I kick his ass every time in Kingdom Hearts 1... that should like carry over magically to this game damn them!
I've already got Ultima and I can say with a certainty it doesn't help with Sephiroth. The attack strength is the as the Oblivion, and the magic boost doesn't help at all.
I'm having an annoying time completing everything; that Magic Carpet ride in Agrabah is bothering me because the mission necessitates 65 enemies destroyed and I can't get past 64. Likewise I'm waiting on glide to get the poster challenge under 30 seconds (So far, I'm to 44).
As for Phil's training: When the large pots show up, position yourself so that the maximum number of small ones are behind it when you attack with a finisher and break the large one. It acts as a multiplier and your points will fly up quickly.
