You really couldn’t have described Brighid, a fire blade with blue fire hair and fire powers, any worse than you did.

oh.

i went to the one area you start the game at, even though it's weird because that bunny guy is obviously still after me and i just stood outside his door

and then i slept at the inn and leveled up to level 11 from level 5

the fight was much easier
helly!

dammit

a fight that is presented as unwinnable "this is the STRONGEST PERSON IN THE WORLD ur gonna LOSE for SURE"

is, in fact, winnable and is what you have to do

I mean...those sorts of misdirections (in either direction; thinking a fight is winnable when it's not is worse if anything) are only really an issue if the game has items and other expendables that you don't bother to use b/c you assume it's unwinnable or do use and waste b/c it is unwinnable.
Not sure why in a game like XC2 it even matters, there's nothing like that to worry about. Just try to win every fight. Even the unwinnable ones usually require you do do a certain amount of damage before the cutscene kicks in.

probably because the boss could kill me in three hits is why i figured it was an unwinnable fight

Rex says “Wall of fire” 12 seconds into the video lmfao

Unrelated, but I forgot how f***ing awful the sound mixing in this game is. You can barely hear some of these characters over the OST in cutscenes. And I wish it were an isolated incident, but it happens over and over again.

Yeah...I think you were just underleveled... Level 5 sounds low for that point, maybe level 8+ by then is more expected. What difficulty are you playing on?

Btw, make sure you use your pouch items, specifically ones that boost your Art Recharge.

Battles at the beginning are sllllllooooooowwwwwwwwwwww without it, and the game never tells you what stuff is good or not. Meanwhile, by the end, you’ll be spamming your CDs left and right because of another character’s passive skill.

Yeah. It takes time to get use to it. I like it a lot. X is my favorite. I don't know which I like more between 1 and 2, though...
