Well I don't know where to starr, but I'll try to adress all points-
First, don't worry about sounding cocky. I am cocky too. If you are the best, then you deserve bragging rights. I have some major accomplishments in RPG's. My goal is to beat every SNES and NES RPG ever created, including the japanese games. I defeated Omega playing FFV in all Jap so that was probably the biggest challenge I've ever faced for a single boss alone. I asked around for other super tough bosses, and I was told to try the Egg Dragon from Lufia 2......WHAT A JOKE!! I beat him on Lv 49 on my 2nd shot. He was no harder than a regular tough boss. That is the way all regular bosses should be (or even harder) He definitly did not cut it as a super boss, but lufia 2 was such a pathetically easy game anyways, I wasnt suprised.
FF2 is even easier, but if you try to beat the game without equipping any weapons, you'll see a tough challenge. OK. so now that I am done bragging, let me continue on here.
You say there is a source of berserk. Maybe there is, but not with my party. There might be some kind of secret or weapon or armor I am missing. I don't know. I just played through the game normally (I have NEVER cheated on this game nor have I ever read an FAQ...maybe I should because I have only discovered a few hidden areas in the game personally on my own. I don't think there are too many more, so I think I have just about mastered the game, but I dont have a source of beserk. Can I ask where you got it? I don't need it, but just curious. I never once used berserk to beat the game, but now we are playing an "impossible" version so it may be nessecary at some point. Since nobody can learn spells, it makes the game much tougher. So, far it's been a walk in the park (except for Valvalis, but like I said she was not hard with the cure 2 potions) so it's kinda sad that this game is that easy that you can beat it at level 1.
Now I am in a battle that is literlly impossible. There is no way to win because I cannot attack fast enough and I do not have any source of FAST. I am stuck in the underworld with limited options. The only way to win with what I have would be to survive the battle with the dolls, and they are the first tough battle of the game, so it is hard to survive it with enough hit points to withstand Golbez's attack.
About using a life spell in battle.....why would you need it? You should have plenrty of LIFE potions in your inventory. And then you mentioned you have plenrty of Cure 3 potions. Can I ask where you got them all? They are not widely available, and it seems that you must of cheated if you have that many of them. Either way, since the party has low HP, why would you need them? Cure 2 potions have worked fine for me so far....

I don't remember which town I got them in. I think mysidia. But I am sure there are plenty of towns in the game which sell them. Now cure 3 potions, I don't remember them being widely available. Please let me know how you got so many of them.

Is it a cheat technique? If so, I am not interested. I like beating my games with no cheating at all. No FAQ's, etc. If you discover a secret on your own, then that's fine, but I like beating my games (especially hard type hacks) fair in square, or they would be pointless for me to play. Also remember that I use active battle which makes the enenmies attack you faster. The dolls are tough, because they attack so often and it's hard to beat them and still have a lot of energy left, but I am sure I can do it. I have only attempted to fight them twice now. I won the first battle and lost the second. So, they are no walk in the park for me. Maybe I am missing something, but when I get to Golbez, he attacks before I can get in any move, so he kills me instantly in one hit.
Quote ""Killed Golbez without healing, too. Here's a screenshot hint for you to know what you're looking for.""
What am I looking for? To have Cecil over 300 HP? If so, that what I figured myself...I just need to be able to beat the dolls and still have over 300 hp, and that is the hard part. I am not immune to them like you are......Also if you like challenges, why not just beat the dolls with NO immunity? They will give you a decent challenge as they already killed me once and I don't usually die on any bosses in a regular RPG.
PS- I also beat Valvalis without healing. You dont need heal potions to win, you need CURE 2 potions to beat her. If you don't, then I'd like to know your method. Where do you get your source of beserk at that point in the game?? I checked all my items and I do not have any source of it what so ever. I even cleaned out the castle of Eblan, to get the treasures there (But I couldnt beat the Mad Ogres, I don't think...but all they give you is the Slumber sword I believe) Sorry if anything here is inaccurate. I have a horrible memory, so even playing through the game 50 or more times, I still dont remember every little thing from it. Just about though. lol
