    - how can i check how many xp my characters still need to level up?

    - any tips to get to stronger enemies close to farebury? i just started and I'm getting a shitload of slimes, but i would prefer monsters a bit stronger. are there special places where you come across stronger enemies? like in the woods on the road?

    - so far I got yangus with axes and the hero with courage/swords for the skills? I guess that's a pretty good build?

    I just started emulating this wonderful game on my PC, I'm absolutely in love with it ! [​IMG]
    So amazing, so addicting, so simple yet so wonderful....

    Anyway, about your questions:

    - You can check with any church how many XP your characters still need to level up. Just talk to the person you would talk to to save your game, but this time select the second option instead of the first.

    - Only tip I can give you is to go out at night instead of the day. The monsters are slightly stronger during nightfall, so that's the only thing I can propose.

    - Yup that sounds pretty good. I would get Boomerang for the Hero too though, it speeds up the game so much because he can slay multiple enemies with one blow then.

    I don't think I'll offend a lot of people if I say this is the best RPG on the PS2 there is. And the PS2 had a LOT of RPG's.
    It's as pure as a JRPG can be, it does nothing special or revolutionary but still it's a fantastic game.

    Au contraire! It ends normally....and then if you want you can continue and unlock the extra story ending!

    Can't wait till I get to the end then!

    BTW, does anyone know where I can find some sort of guide that says where and when I can find monsters that drop copper/silver/gold monster coins?
