@ZorokiHanuke said in Story quest hardcore mode:
@LapisWave Sometimes is just the satisfaction of completing something. to finally beat something that gave you trouble and you couldn't beat before. Sure, if based on AI, the fight can be cheesed, then there's less point in doing it. But if what it takes is for the player to learn the patterns and stuff, then it is a good win, even if it's against an AI.
As for this apprentice Zia fight, I don't think I've done that. Or if I did I don't remember it.
Story's bosses have poor mechanics comparing to the actual UQ/Trigger fight, especially when people go casual mode or hardcore it at low level to ignore mechanics, or you just cheese it out as Summoner too.
People said they did fight for Magatsu and Luther in story mode, and yet they don't do mechanics properly in actual UQs. So it's hard for me to believe that they learned how to dodge and how to be better at the game. It's just benefit of the doubt there.
If people want to really learn how to dodge, do Extreme Quest: Heaven and Hell.
