So hard mode is truly hard even if you know what you are doing?

Heh, trained a team of ninjas and kept Agnes' performer job as a backup class so I could keep buffing their speed. The only time I even took any damage from Behemoth was when I forgot to reapply utsusemi to a character near the end of the fight.

Wait, only Level 91? I'm at 91 and only halfway through chapter 7

I'm level 69 and half way through chapter 8.

It was a while ago, but I think I directly grinded up to 99 when I got to those 6 enemies by Florem, after that big ol' light beam.

It sucks that rage cannot be mimicked, even if you use drain.
That would be super OP.

I have a balancing problem here.

Currently, my party is Level 56-57. However, Tiz as a Ranger/Hunter is the only one who can do over 1500-2000 damage. Everyone else does a petty 500-700 damage, and so does Tiz the instant I switch him off the Ranger class. I tried combining different people with different classes, and I even got some of the highest level weapons available through maxing out Norende Village, but no one seems to be able to do over 1000 damage, let alone 2000! (which is what I need atm to fight some powerful mobs).

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Is there something I could do better?

@GuardianKing: Just experiment with different skill combinations. The game is all about finding new and potentially broken ways of combining job skills. For instance, I remember doing something with the dark knight that involved the mimic skill and re-raise spell to drastically increase the damage output of one of my characters.

@GuardianKing What job abilities are you using? What are your weapon mastery levels? Those are the two main culprits that spring to mind. Otherwise, it could be an elemental disadvantage issue, but if Tiz is getting the same damage penalty when switched off of Ranger, that shouldn't be it either.

But Rage + Minus Strike is like 15,000-20,000 damage, if you're using a Dark Knight. Combining Spell Fencer and Pirate skills also do some pretty disgusting damage.

Far be it from me to post in an old thread that hasn't had any activity for a year and a half, but I'm hoping to start Bravely Default within the next week or so. It's been sitting in my backlog for a while, and since it's winter I thought it would be a good time to start the game.

So...any tips for streamlining the experience? Dos and don'ts? A rough estimate for how long it took you to beat the game, perhaps? I'm not the fastest when it comes to RPGs due to a love of exploration and reading of text, so I'm expecting to spend some time on this game. XD

It took me 145 hrs to complete the game though that was completing all side quests and acquiring all asterisks, plus levelling all jobs to max level on all 4 characters. Oh and I got the "Incomplete Ending" first then after saving following the end, I could continue from where I left off (with a nice new outfit) to get the proper ending.

My suggestions would be:

1) To really get to know all the characters (especially the bosses) do all the side quests.

2) Save before EVERY boss encounter, actually just save often.

3) Experiment with jobs and skill sets to level them up to create amazing combinations.

4) Set battle speed to at least 2 arrows long.

5) Get the incomplete ending first then the final one (can't say how cos major spoiler if explained). But you should figure it out yourself.

6) Be prepared for a bit of a slog later in the game. Again can't explain fully but you'll need dedications and patience.

@FX102A: I see. I've ran across murmurs of something later on in the game causing it to drag a bit, but haven't pursued why in fear of spoilers. I don't plan to be a completionist with this game and plan to skip a few things, though I'm taking all your listed points into consideration. Saving shouldn't be an issue at least, primarily because I picked up the "save often" mentality after years of playing Pokemon. XD Thanks!

@Tyranexx Don't be afraid to take advantage of the random encounter slider and social features if you play on hard mode. The game gets brutal around chapter 5 and doesn't let up.

I'll recommend AGAINST doing sidequests in the second half of the game on your first playthrough. Like the other person said, it's a bit of a slog, but easy to get through if you set your mind to just barreling through it. Also, don't give up: the sloggy parts are worth getting through, because the last two bosses are FANTASTIC. Two of my all-time favorite JRPG boss fights.

Also, like he/she said, experiment a lot with skill and job combinations. You'll need those OP combos, even if you play on normal mode.

I skipped most of the sidequests later in the game and still spent 105 hours on it. It's really a massive experience.

@Ralizah: I'll probably abuse the crap out of the random encounter slider, actually. XD I ran across a post elsewhere where someone recommended not spending a ton of time grinding until chapter 4 or so. Is that accurate?

I plan on skipping at least some sidequests, mainly so that I don't get bored/bogged down by too many extras; I'm also trying to give other games in my backlog their time to shine, so I'm not trying to be a major completionist anymore (unless it's a mainline Zelda entry). I do intend to finish the main story unless I REALLY dislike the game, which I believe will be unlikely. XD

The different skill and job combinations sound like they'll be fun to experiment with.

@Tyranexx Probably because there are some late game areas where grinding job points is much more efficient. I don't think it really matters either way, though. Just play the way you want.

The job system is VERY fun to play around with, and there are a huge variety of builds to try with your various characters. Also, it has one of the best turn-based battle systems I've ever encountered in a JRPG. And fantastic music.

@Ralizah: I see. I think you've actually helped boost my excitement levels for this game. Thanks for your input!
