I managed to beat Narmer in Etrian Odyssey III last night, which marks the first time I’ve made my way beyond the first stratum. It was a very lively battle — surprising after playing through two games that lacked such dynamic foes.
The balance of this game fascinates me. Even though I kind of felt like I might have been pushing toward the “overleveled” envelope for this battle, my team still lacked the best gear available. Even with farm minions delving their way to collection points for cash, I have a feeling my team will be permanently under-equipped through the end of the game.
This game is rad.
