    This is probably the best DS RPG out there right now, it has an excellent combat system with tons of customization and cool animations. I just spent an hour fighting a giant boss (King Wojek in the translation), I found him in Dominas Waterfall. If you haven't tried this out, you really should. The translation patch is very easy to apply and it has everything you need to play.

    How long is this game? I've been playing it for so long, it's very fun though. I am using Welt with a 2H sword. My favourite sword though is a weak one (Iron Blade, looks like Cloud's from FF7), the stronger ones just look to extravagant and colourful.


    Also, I asked this in the help forum, but nobody answered:
    How do I get to the Soma Palace in Cremona. It's the second objective in Act 6. I have been going around the Floating Continent Zain forever and I can't find anywhere that's not a dead end. Thanks.

    No, only "everything you need to play" ie. the story isn't finished yet. It will be eventually, hopefully. But I mean, Soma Bringer isn't the kind of game you play for the story anyway, I think.

    I know this game have almost nil chance of being release in any English-speaking countries and so I will wait for the translation patch.

    I want to play a 100% game. So I will wait patiently for them to finish this project. Go guys go!

    So, has anybody get to that palace? I killed King Wojek twice while waiting for the idea crammed into my head. I wandered the lands of Zain and, hell. Never found it

    I'm using Cadenza, gunner, Beryl Gun (relic)

    ATT 305 SKL 108
    Gun Skill Heavy Shot Burst Shot Butterfly Speed all level 22
    Double Shot level 3, my normal attack

    with 14%HP absorb and 6%MP absorb I'm happy that my MP is infinite, combined with Meditation, oh, MP! when will you dry? [​IMG]

    I have Cadenza, Gunner,
    and Welt, Battler, 2handed weapons (gotta love the big old blades.

    On Act 5 for both i believe. And yes, the story isnt fully translated, but the game is still great.

    I am stuck like you, I can't get to the palace. I am using Welt with a Cross Blade. I love this game so much, but wandering Zain is so tiring.

    Great game! finished Summon Nights and moved on to Soma Bringer. I don't really care for the story as I find myself cutting the cutscenes a lot. The gameplay is awesome and highly addictive. Shame theres no multiplayer online [​IMG]

    Wow. How did I miss this. The boxart reminds me of Kingdom Hearts for some reason. I'm gonna try it out. [​IMG]

    The game says: go north.southeast/whatever directions. Maybe you followed it like this:

    1st: Go to the nroth (as the game says) and you found the fork

    2nd: The game says go to southeast, incidentally there WAS a way to the southeast and you went there

    now you're stuck, when the game says go to north, yeah, you have to go to the nroth, but when the game says got o a direction, you have to go back to the first fork you activated and go according to the log, you have to go from the first fork, not from the last fork

    as of the 2008-09-21 patch, 95.66% of the game has been translated, everything you need to complete the game has been translated (story-wise and major quests) the only things which haven't been translated yet are random people you can talk to and some of the people who you can get side quests off

    I am using Einstatz with dual swords, and which ranged weapon is better, bows or guns?
