    I tend to avoid most RPGs that need a lot of grinding. So wheres the "Don't grind" option?

    At FFIV, potions are cheap. So I buy lots of them and go to the dungeon I'm supposed to go to.

    Make that 15 hour playtime jump to a 30 hour playtime over the next few days. Then you should not have too much trouble with whatever you can not beat.

    I never grind in any game. It's fun to be underleveled and make use of your brain. I also didn't have to grind for FFIV which is how they say "hard" game.

    Grinding isn't necessarily just gaining EXP, it could be trying to get a rare item or trying to earn enough money to buy a plot or powerful item.

    But yes, I'll grind. [​IMG]

    Same here. On other games, I just running a circle nearest inn and go there when I need to heal my characters. I also have bad habit to power leveling in every game.

    I always thought the only way to progress is to grind. Isn't that supposed to be a big part of RPGs?

    I thought makers encourage you to think like in FFX where you make strategy to beat Penance and Nemesis.

    Normally I just try the legit way. If it involves too much grinding I'll just avoid the game.

    If the game is a good game, I'll grind the normal way. If the game sux (like Etrian Odyssey, sadly) I'll turn on exp. multipliers. Too bad even Exp. Multipliers couldn't save Etrian Odyssey for me [​IMG]

    Meh, if a game requires grinding then i just turn the cheats on.
    I don't understand the point of grinding if you can use cheats.

    I mean it isn't like Grinding is a fun part of the game or a MultiPlayer game where you want to prove your skills.
    Grinding in an Offline RPG game sucks so yeah...i rather use a cheat code.

    I sort of just switch off my brain and run around and press the "Accept" button over and over again, usually whilst I'm watching a movie.

    EXP

    Go to the place where all the strong battles are and level up there. Just make sure you bring tons of HP and MP healing items and anything for reviving fallen characters.

    Money

    Find a money laden monster usually a regenerating mimic, high level creature, or money themed monsters such as thieves and rich monsters, then destroy them until you have the money.

    Items

    See your bestiary for the target monster and kill them until you have the item.


    The legal way is best.

    I usually do it legit, unless there is some kind of non-glitch shortcut I can use. Personally I prefer to go underleveled in most situations, just because the feeling of accomplishment after a hard battle is greater when I am actually challenged. Power is great and all, but not if it breaks the game.

    I do it legit. If it's really too long, I just quit the game.

    I usually grind legit

    sometime it's fun to put on a massive EXP multiplyer to laugh when the game screws up and gives you 1 EXP

    If you're playing a RPG, you're grinding.
