Ys: The Oath in Felghana

Ys: The Oath in Felghana

RAGE QUIT
So many times. So many times have I exited in anger. So many times did I express my frustration in muffled gibberish and angry shouting. So many times did I promise myself I would not play anymore. So many times was my ♥♥♥ handed to me by the very first boss and many more bosses thereafter (the first was, by far, the worst.) So many times have I stifled the urge to throw my controller.

Just how long has it been since I have been plagued with so many urges to smash my controller against the wall? A long, long time I am certain.

I am still standing at the last save point pondering whether I should level more or go for it.

I feel ya bro. After playing through Origin in hard I picked this game up in nightmare and holy crap am I feeling the rage. I'm at the 2nd Chester fight and godamn is my will to play gone. But I also know I'll feel so good when I beat him...

ha ha. I imagine everyone experiences this. I'd say go for it on the last boss. I think I was level 50 when I beat him on normal playthrough.

What level are you? Going out and leveling more will help, but if your above say 52 you are already strong enough to fight the final boss with ease(relativly speaking). If your below 50, i'd reccomend grinding. If not try to work on your strat.

Helpful tips:

Phase one, work on not getting hit at all. You can avoid all attacks in P1 with just dodging.

Phase two, in my opinon P2 is less about dodging and more about burning him down fast do get him out of P2 before you take too much damage. You can do it without taking any damage, but it's better to shoulder a few hits and just get it over and done with.

Phase three, save your "limit break" incase you get sucked in, then block like crazy to avoid the damage.

The first boss is tricky with her sword spam.

What I love about the game is the difference between the levels. I was trying to beat the first boss (with level 5 or 6) and failed over and over. Then I leveled up once, and it was really easy :D

And that feeling when you beat them is always so sweet.

Now come on.. Which one are you stuck on? We'll give you some tips!

This is the type of oldschool-hard game that you can get better at and master if you just keep playing it and learning. I couldn't ragequit at such a game -- ragequitting to me is when you're playing something online, depending ont he skill of your fellow players to succeed, and being disappointed time and time again, knowing you can do nothing to control it, until you just give up.

Ok, I'm not playing Nightmare or anything, but so far this game doesn't seem NEAR as hard as the original its based off of. Maybe once I finish I'll have to come back with a greater difficulty than Normal...

This is true, Wanderers from Ys is definitely harder, though I would chalk that up more to limited combat abilities and generally sadistic dungeons/bosses. Oath gives you way more breathing room with a more rombust combat system...I never beat Ys III but I've been through Oath twice and am in the middle of a Hard mode playthrough.

Everytime I play console game I always use all chances to cheat. I'm buying games cuz I want fun, not flustration or anger. Actually, by the trailer I though there were not health potions so no health bar and game would be easier (for me = funnier) then casual acrades. But... Hell! I died at 1nd lvl! Wtf? Frack this game and whole series, ff still the best.

The last boss was epic! Now if I can only make my way up to the last boss in hard mode.

Why would you feel good for raging at a video game for hours before finally killing a boss? Sounds like a waste of time to me, just put it on an easier difficulty and enjoy the ride.

Different strokes for different folks. I love the feeling of finally beating a boss that took me countless retries. If it isn't "cheap" difficulty, then it should give you a sense of accomplishment and feel that you're much better at the game than you were before.
