That was probably the most irritating part of the game for me, took me ages to find where I needed to go, the map was zero help in that section.

I think part of the confusing part is the marker shows down but you have to go up quite a bit before you work your way back down once you pass the Greatspire Boundary.

I'm currently into chapter 6, got all 5 party members back so it might be a good time to grind some of those rare blades. Pretty much completed the Merc missions so should unlock Roc's final tier later too. The only issue I've got is picking up some of the rare blade missions that I didn't complete previously, e.g. I can't get back on Ursula's mission as I can't find the starting point.

well theres a heart to heart you need to see first which becomes available after you stay at the inn in torgiroth i think and then the mission itself starts at the plaza there

Me too.

I had to look up a guide online and go through it slowly. Fortunately nowhere else is quite that bad.

Just got to that Arachno boss when you find the dead Titan after meeting the fella with the big chested bird blade, but I'm struggling with it. Is there any help in-game to go over the various types of combo again? Not sure if there's an on-cart manual or anything. I couldn't spot anything having a look just.

Found a few decent write-ups online, but it'd be nice to get it straight from the horses mouth though.

Check a couple of things first, are your blades using the best chips (weapons) they can and have you been levelling the driver arts and the blade arts?

After that, concentrate on having Pyra as your blade and Dromarch on Nia. Aim to get break status and use Pyra topple art (this is why you need to level up blade arts). Then aim to do Level 1 Pyra, 2 Nia and 3 back to Pyra. Once your chain gauge is full then trigger that as well.

Beat the big spider thing after practising a little with the element combos 8-) Now I've got to a point where the map's opened out into a much bigger area.

"Blushy-Crushy" :dread: "be more maid-like!" :dread: strawberry float off, Tora :dread: had to leap through that cutscene on the train.

The cutscene where Vandham is looking at Prya's injuries and the camera focuses on her crotch, too :slol:

XC2 is a great game with some significant problems.

Just finished chapter 3 :dread:

I think I'd read Vandham died but I didn't think it'd be that early. Was wondering why you couldn't resonate blades for him.

Pyra going super saiyan :datass:

That guy with the glasses is such a twat :slol:

I was gutted at that moment! Although there was a plus side to Vandham dying - it meant that the voice cast no longer had to fight over whether his name was pronounced Vandh-um, Vandh-em or Vandh-am :lol:

Erm. What was that hot spring cutscene all about :shifty:

EDIT: First thing I went to was is Nia a guy? Now I'm thinking about it - is she a blade? :shifty:
