    If you count a random NPC saying something like "It's hot recently!" as a necessity, you should surely count information on the main characters, organisations and plot elements as a necessity too. As you say, the characters and storyline are crucial things and it would be nice to have more info on them via the glossary. Even if someone just translates them and puts them up on the Wikia (if there is one). I'm not being ungrateful for what we already have - seriously, this is one of the best Diablo-esque JRPGs I've ever played - but I do think it rates higher than some people are giving it credit for.

    Anyway, is it just me or are the Kampfs weapons all crap apart from the poles? I have a Rank 1 iron pole that kills most enemies in one hit and does massive damage to bosses - I switched to a pair of Rank 2 fist weapons as soon as I was able and they barely did any damage to anything. If their attack speed was insanely fast it may balance out, but as it is I just end up getting smacked about for a while rather than just instantly killing the enemy as I do with the poles.

    What characters do you guys tend to play as? I'm thinking about giving this a second chance.

    So close and yet so far away.
    I used that too but once I found really good one-handed swords I switched over - it does much more damage and I like to run into enemies and just bash them. Although I'm thinking of a more combo-ish style once I finish this playthrough.

    Gunner, guns. mostly Chained heavy and double shots (rapes an entire bunch in seconds), with Paralyze and close-ranged burst shots versus bosses.

    IIRC, am in the last act, first playthrough, but couldn't get to finishing it, heh. too many distractions (got a 3DS/Zelda3D, got a PSP/MonsterHunter, real life, etc).

    I've been holding out on playing this game for 2 years now in case the few remaining parts get translated. Is there any chance of this happening still? I know Darth Nemesis has stated he intended to complete it to 100% in the past but I understand there can be a change of events due to other priorities. Is there still a chance of this patch being updated or should I just go ahead and finally play it?
    Thanks for the patch btw!

    Totally worth it.
    I actually had to play the game through 3 or 4 times before I noticed a part that wasn't translated, and that was some sort of monster book/journal which I didn't even bother to take a look at even tho you can acces it right in the beginning of the game. But that was only because I was too hyped about the game. xD



    PS. Don't underestimate the Battlers class - it's not as powerful as Kampfs, but after spending like 60 hours to the game, acquiring the almost ultimate gear possible, I could solo the hidden boss on the extra levels - on the hardest level. (by tanking it 24/7 only using pots to regain hp) I actually farmed the crap out of that boss. Was fun to socket your whole gear with +all skills orbs/spheres (Rainbow sphere/orb was the name as I recall it being). =)

    heck, the way this game uses orbs, you can get ranged characters to tank by sporting 2000~HP. my gunner does.

    Fun game, I have the standard warrior class playing with dual weapons. IT did abit less damage than Kampf , but have a brick load of hp even without as many orb enhancements

    I doubt he'd add a PVP arena. The game itself doesn't include one, so he'll have to create it from scratch. Would be too much of a hassle to do.

    It is, you have to do the whole thing from scratch , like say programming back the character status (e.g friend-> enemy for instance), building the whole place, putting it into the game, see to that the programming doesn't have any bugs and so on. Even if it isn't that hard, it is a hassle
