This is a thread to anybody who wants to go through the game casually and post about progress. Is there anyone who wants to join in?

I’m playing 4 Black Mages now. (I plan to promote) I just skipped the volcano and got the floater and the tail at level 12.

I'm currently running a 4 White Mage challenge. I just beat Kraken last night. I don't have the CUBE yet but I took a quick trip into the mirage tower anyways to grab the Thor Hammer. I am preparing now to go after the CUBE. But first a bit more gold grinding to get some more magic.

I've obtained the CUBE and made my way through the Flying Fortress. Battled with Tiamat.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ec6vYC43F0w

The battle here went well. Easier than I expected.

Onward to the final dungeon and the fiend rematches!

This was no walk in the park. They put up a good fight. I also retreated once I got the Masamune to save my game, even though it meant going through the dungeon again and re-fighting the fiends. I wanted to have the Masamune on my save file.

I re-do the dungeon, and fight Tiamat, which is the battle in the video above. I proceed to Chaos, but I can't do it. I have everyone use FADE, but it's not enough. I use up all my FADE spell charges but Chaos survives and uses Cure4. I reset the game at this point. Count it as a win for Chaos. I won't be able to beat him before he uses Cure4 again.

I grind a few more levels and get an extra Level 8 spell charge. I go through again and this time don't use FADE on anything until I reach Chaos. So all 4 White Wizards have 4 charges for level 8 magic. 16 FADES later and Chaos still isn't down. Mata uses the Masaume and everyone else uses their spell casting items. Chaos STILL survives it the onslaught and uses Cure4. Fail.

I'm going to grind more levels and get everyone a 5th charge for level 8 Magic. 20 FADE spells + Masamune if I run out should be enough to take him down.

Memory check...do the HARM series of spells work on Chaos? I seem to remember using them in the past. Or maybe I'm thinking FADE

HARM is short for "Harm Undead", the classic D&D cleric spell. It only works on enemies flagged as being undead. From the game mechanics guide:

BONE, R.BONE, ZomBULL, SHADOW, IMAGE, WRAITH, GHOST, ZOMBIE, GHOUL, GEIST, SPECTER, PHANTOM, VAMPIRE, WzVAMP, Zombie D, MUMMY, WzMUMMY, LICH, LICH 2

FADE/Holy is a non-elemental spell and as such works equally well on everything, with it only being resistable through Magic Defense.

After some level grinding and getting the extra level 8 magic charge, I went for Chaos again.

I've started a 4 thief playthrough. My 2nd. My first failed when I switched computers and lost my data. I will class change.

Leveling up to 2 after getting equipped with puny equipment

I'm honestly curious how 4 thieves will compare to 4 white mages.

You'll have more offense but I bet there are times where Ruse and Fog will be sorely missed.

Pre-Class change may be pretty rough. Once they become Ninjas and you start getting some legitimate offense out of them, I'm betting your game will be considerably less frustrating. I'm betting the Marsh Cave and Astos will be quite a formidable roadblock for 4 thieves.
