Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere on the board/in the sticky, nor am I sure if anyone else is still playing this (just picked it up myself again a while back), but 'perfect items' don't need to be entirely cleared out before you start on them. The way the level-up system works is that it adds stats for subdued residents upon your exit--so, say you have an un-subdued Gladiator whom you subdue on floor 9, you'd get the same ATK bonus from him as you would from a pre-subdued Gladiator who's been on the item since level 1.
If this tip saves you time, spend it going outside to remind yourself what the sky looks like. Because if you play like me, you've long since forgotten...
The specialist bonus that engages during item leveling is based on how many specialists are present in the item during a boss kill, so of course it does not matter what was in the item at level 5, but only every X0th floor.
The only fight you may struggle in is beating LoC UPB AFTER defeating PBP, which results in the x4 boost of the stats of all characters on the next map you enter. Does the next map (LoC UPB) start immediately after the first (PBP)? Do you get to save inbetween? Do you get to heal inbetween? I guess there's no easy trick that let's you have the x4 enemy boost on 1-1 or so and afterwards fight LoC UPB or?
Oh and the felony for unlocking all classes includes majins, i.e. I can only get it in a new game +?
The fight doesn't automatically start. In fact, if you don't leave Item World, the next floor will have enemies with the 4x boost, and it will be wasted since it only lasts for one map. So, Gency out after killing the PBP, then heal & save before entering the LoC UPB fight.
Thanks. Very nice, indeed. Then I don't have to worry about getting rank 40 equipment and can make do with rank 39 equipment.
Now one thing I'm not really sure about after reading through this: An item god (legendary items only) lvl 127+ on a rank 38 item always has a rank 39 item(weapon?)? Item generals, too (normal items stage 10/20)? Or do they just have the same chances as any lvl 127 enemy? What's the fastest way to get legendary (or rare) rank 39 equipment? Reloading until the first stage of an item with lvl 127+ residents has one I can steal or making some high lvl geomancers to spam bonus change? Do the chances improve if I save after beating stage 10/20 of an item and reload from there?
I have squandered my resistance for a pocket full of mumbles like promises All lies and jests, still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest
