I think I played this once in the past two weeks.  I leveled my characters up to 50, and I was going to give the boss another try just to see the best strategy, but it was late by the time I got to level 50 so I left it for the next session…which hasn’t happened yet.

Actually played some of this these past two weeks.  I got a chance to take on Harpuia, the 4th Stratum boss, and it wasn’t as bad as I thought.  Oh, I didn’t beat her or anything like that lol, but I’m seeing the beginnings of a strategy.  The biggest issue is the Glowbirds that come to her aid.  They’re 4th Stratum FOEs and they make things more complicated.  They have no elemental weakness, but they really only have one attack that they need a turn to charge up for.  If you don’t do something about it, the attack will hit all of your characters hard, but you can either throw a Blast Grenade to stop them or bind their heads if you can.  I’m wondering if I can just take them out before fighting the boss or if they’ll show up no matter what.  Either way, I think I want to level my characters up to level 50.  I watched a little bit of a video of someone taking her on, and that’s where they were.  I’m at level 49 so I don’t have that far to go, and I can fight Glowbirds or those rhino FOEs.  I might even take on those annoying frogs that follow you around lol.

Title: World of Final Fantasy Maxima

I beat the game, but there’s a lot of after-game content to finish up.  They actually added even more with an extra dungeon in the Girl’s Tearoom, another one at the top of the Crystal Tower after you do all of the Tearoom dungeons, some weird void at the bottom of the fore mentioned tower, which leads to some major boss battle that requires six broken seals.

I don’t think I’ve played this these past two weeks.  I’ve felt stymied because I know I need to do a lot of leveling.  I might just try the boss fight to see how badly it goes.  At least I’ll get an idea of what to expect.

I’m at the boss of the 4th stratum now and I need to do quite a bit of leveling before I take her on per the suggestions.  I want to try to take down one of the stratum’s FOEs especially since there’s an ingredient I can get from it.  It’s been a few day since I’ve played though.  I lose a little bit of steam if I don’t have a direct path forward, and really all I have to do is grind the FOEs on lower floors in order to level up.
