Only one hit point
Hello, I'm stuck in 'charging the power of the evil ring', when I need to kill 3 sand creatures.

But I only hit 1 hit point, how can I hit more?? I tried all skills and all itens :S

When this happens one of two things occurred:

1. You missed a Cleria Ore somewhere.
2. You're underleveled and a level or two will make a big difference.
Those things are quite irritatingly strong, yes. Though you should be able to manage at least a few HP per hit.
hugo on nightmare hits these things for 1hp regardless
that was super fun
I think I beat at least one of them with just 1 HP damage per hit too. Was playing Yunica on Normal.

My guess is you missed an ore somewhere. I did the same thing on my first yunica playthrough, killed all 3 of em doing only 1 damage at a time. By the end of the game I noticed my weapon wasn't maxed out so it only makes sense that I missed it around that time.
Here's a little hint.. You should be obtaining one ore every section of the tower. Make sure you've had these requisities:

1> The roo in Area 1 that appears when you get the blue crest to advance in the chest. Feed it a Roda Fruit and it uses an ore.
2> Returning back to base after the Dragon Scales. The lad on the left, near the Statue (Name dodges me) uses an ore. Know where he is, you'll need him when you get more Ore.
3> The very top of Devil's Corridor, beyond the evil gate (Dispelled by destroying the glowing mobs). The topmost exit has a chest containing the ore.

Area 4's ore, sadly, is beyond the Evil Ring event.

Make sure you use the ore right away by paying our fellow at base another visit.

That being met, have another requisite: you're at level. Being underleveled can put a dent in the damage you deal. Revisit the mob hunt after each level gain to see if you do a little more comparable of a task. Use the move-then-attack special execution to randomly drop the monster's defense, for an easier time. (Move, then move a little, wait a split second then hit attack.) Also, the thunder skills work (Bolt Crash for Yunica, Trap Mine for Hugo) to moderate effect, only try immediate recast after dropping charged mines to detonate it.

Once you get the ring powered, let me drop a hint on what to do before using it -- Gemma. Area 1. Remember the warp trap and how you got past it.

Hope this may help you guys out.

You can usually bring them down easily enough by running back and forth playing keep-away with trap mines or phoenixes, but on Nightmare they just have way too many HP, kill you in a couple hits, and you don't do much damage. So don't be afraid to play dirty.

Retreat up the stairs and use the Spirit Cape to heal without exiting the room. With Hugo, you can trick one into charging diagonally past the stairs, then run up onto the stairs yourself so it runs into the railing trying to get you. Inch slowly down the stairs until one of your shots slips past the edge of the railing and hits it. Then mash Z for a minute or two.
