I keep getting killed just by regular enemies. Is it like this through the whole game, or do I just need to level up?

well im right now playing this on PS2 i grinded a bit in lime water cave right at the end of the cave on some eneimes and after that point i cant recall haveing much more trouble with the rest of the game (right now im at a PONR plot point much later on).

and a question where are you in the game right now?

another thing is that you NEED to use healing items in this game unlike other Ys games i played (dont know about 7 although heard that is pretty big on the items).

which cave are u stuck in? i just finished the game maybe cause i played Oath before hand this was so much easier lol.

also once you get a good bit of grinding in the regular enemies stop becoming a problem.

also remember that emel drops get better and better. and upgrading your swords is a godsend (assuming your that far).

im trying to think what cave your in off hand there is the mountain cave which i remember started kinda hard then i just kept running back and forth in and out till it got easier there is the cave lake(or limewater cave) which i literally ran to the end then grinded at the last enemies b4 the boss there cause they give good EXP.

Just going up a couple of levels will usually make a considerable difference if you are finding the enemies to be hitting back too hard. Also make sure that you consistently upgrade your wind blade in town when possible. Grinding by killing dragonflies in the first areas of the mountain cave will generally gain you levels pretty efficiently, since they are great in number, and they also give away pretty impressive pocket change to upgrade armor.
