Hi guys I've been a long time fan of FFT and a 1.3 addict since I found it this winter via Archael7's videos on Youtube. I appreciate what everyone has done with the mod and have found it incredibly challenging and fun at the same time. I'm glad someone has made the game much more challenging so that there is actually a use for all of the advanced tactics and equipment you can use and find. Excellent job.
I'm contacting the board now because I'm having major difficulty with Kletian in Murond Death City. I would appreciate anyone's help with tips on what kind of party I should bring, how I should prioritize my targets, and whether or not I should level to level 99 for this series of fights. In general, how can I kill Kletian if he stays in the back ground and hides behind those heinous No-Charge Sorcerors?
I'm playing version 1.3030.
My party is currently Level 58 - 60. I've been rotating with a team of four generics, Ramza, Agrias, Meliadoul, and Malak. Assume that all of my characters have all skills available and access to all non-DD items that are stealable or poachable.
So far I've used the same strategy as for Rofel - Sending Malak to the middle of the battlefield to bait Kletian to move forward so I can zerg him out with my damage dealers. If he moves forward, I can use Chaos Blade/Excalibur/Masamune/Sasuke Knives to deal massive damage to him. Malak has Angel Ring so he can reraise and rush forward to strike at Kletian if he comes forward. I have found magic support to be very weak in this fight as casters routinely get OHKO'd by the Sorcerors. Lancers, Knights, and Samurai can last a lot longer. I have been unsuccessful in baiting Kletian forward enough. I can get in a few hits with Holy Sword techniques, but it isn't enough damage.
I've given up on trying a defensive or evasion strategy because evasion doesn't defend against the Ninjas w/ Concentration and Dark Holy. Elemental immunity likewise does not help keep my characters alive in the long run.
Kletian's party is about 10 - 12 levels higher than me. Do I need to increase to level 99 to make our levels equal?
1. How can I bait Kletian to come forward towards me?
2. Is it worthwhile to try to kill the Sorcerors and ninjas?
3. Is it worthwhile to use Angel Rings or should I just focus on Bracers?
4. Do I need to raise my characters to level 99 in order to beat Murond?
5. Is there a strategy besides focus-fire on Kletian I should try?
I would appreciate any help you guys can give me.
