I was super excited to get Dark Cloud after hearing people compare it to LoZ and Vagrant Story, but i'm having a hard time liking the game after about 1.5 hours. Perhaps someone can point me in the right direction. I'm in the first cave, my main dagger is broken and my other weapon (which i found in a random chest) only has a few whp left. This wouldnt be too bad, but i have no idea how to get more repair powder. I cant complete the store in town without getting to the 4th floor, which i have to do with my broken dagger, making each little fight last forever. Meanwhile bats poison me super quickly but i have no antidote because i cant flippin buy any... Wtf. Is the game designed to be this stupidly difficult and annoying?
