Yeah, I know. I learned all those things during the revision so you'll be happy to find the writing very much improved now.Update
Keep in mind one thing I didn't change is the difficulty. If you found Legionwood hard before, it's roughly the same now. I love hard RPGs, so I tend to make my own ones that way. With that said, you can
survive the battles if you think
as I and my friends have done.
Here's some advice from a beta tester:
Okay, very simple to survive in Legionwood but you gotta be prepared. Buy Lann the heaviest, strongest weapons and armor you can get but buy Liara the mage's cloak, whip and hat. Now, go and buy Liara the 3 elemental spells and Healing Light, while you get Lann double strike and study enemies.
Finally, enter the menu, select Character, and in the status screen hit A. Spend Lann's AP on Attack and Defense, spend Liara's on Intellect and Defense.
Now spend whatever cash you have left on peptides.
Proceed to Selatan Plains. Have Lann attack in battle and Liara cast spells. Use Salves if wounded and peptides if low on SP. Hang around near the save point until you reach level 2 and you can relax
The golden rule with Legionwood is to not spam attack. In the game's early areas, heal if you fall below 60% of your max HP, and do make sure you cast spells. Also, make sure you spend AP at every level up as without it you cannot raise your stats high enough to survive.
