|Everyone's levels are now 44 / 42 / 41 / 43.|
Wow... according to a wiki page on this boss, I'm apparently a bit underleveled. The boss is level 48.
There's gotta be a way to beat him without grinding... ahah! Here it is.
There is a way to defeat the barrier trio more easily, but it is particularly tedious. From the start of the battle, Duster must use his tickle stick and Kumatora must use one of her defense down moves. If the barrier trio's Defense is low enough, it will use Defense Up to replenish its stats rather than attack. By lowering barrier trio's defense each turn, Barrier Trio will constantly be occupied with using Defense Up, giving Lucas and Boney time to chip away at its health. Eventually, Barrier Trio will use PK Starstorm.
I also learned that you can tell which elemental attack they are weak against, based on which one of them initiates the barrier pose... But now that I know Defense Down is their weakness, I don't even need to worry about that. I beat them this time just by spamming Defense Down and Tickle Stick, and shielding/healing everyone with Lucas, then attacking with Lucas and Boney until they started concentrating to use PK Starstorm... at that point I just used everything I had (highest levels of PK weed and PSI Freeze) every turn to kill them while the PSI Shields on my party were enough to keep us alive.
A bunch of pig UFOs show up... for some reason Lucas just stands there waiting for the commander to come down, instead of just pulling the needle right away. The commander zaps everybody with lightning, and then goes to pull out the needle himself.
I still don't have a teleport ability, so I guess I gotta just walk all the way back through Tanetane Island, and through the Seafloor again...
Tazmily Village 7
Wow, Cerulean Beach is now completely deserted, except for the sunbathing guy, the sunbathing pig, and the frog... oh and the Rope Snake is there too, hiding in a hole, saying he's gonna make it big in the big city...
Alec greets us in the west side of the village... Tells us that Ionia lives in Argilla Pass... not many other people here besides Mapson, that stray dog living in the sheriff's office, Nana, the shop owner, the guy who was scared to come out of his room in the inn, the mayor's family, the 2 people near Lucas's house who became friends, the old guy near Lucas's house... Wess is here, saying he has a bad feeling about this strange occurrence of everyone moving to the big city... oh and Lighter and Fuel are near the train, wondering if they should leave for the big city or not.
This area seems pretty simple... The enemies aren't a problem at all, and I'm getting some quick level ups from them so that tells me I'm not overleveled... There's some really weird enemies here, but they aren't very hard.
It was a good experience.
lol... this pointless battle against the Negative Man... He does only 1HP of damage to you when he attacks, and mostly just complains about his life and asks you to kill him...
Another weird enemy with a hilariously heavy head...
You don't need to say anything. I understand. Five needles have been pulled now. Aeolia, Doria, Lydia, Phrygia, and Mixy... *giggle* I mean, Mixolydia. They've all disappeared, now that "the time" has come... And now it's my turn. That leaves only my Needle in Chupichupyoi Temple, and the one missing Needle...
The temple is covered in vines frozen in time. You can't get inside with them as they are. You'll need to sprinkle these "Waters of Time" on them.
Oh, I almost forgot about this... a Mr. Saturn showed up outside of Ionia Temple to bring me back the Courage Badge that he took earlier, and now it's been polished back to its original form... the Franklin Badge!
The commander and the pigmasks are there, trying to break through the vine wall to get into the temple... but they can't... only the special water that Ionia gave us can get through these vines.
Wow... can I even beat him at my current level? I feel like I need a full-party healing ability in order to get through this.
Also, I finally learned what the Magypsie's mementos are for... Missy's Memento revived Lucas after he died, and then it disappeared after that one use... I've just been depositing all these things into the Item Deposit guy, but I happened to still have this one on me.
Guess I'll stop here for now. I'm probably really close to the end of the chapter.
