Reaching the endgame now, just the bonus dungeons and Doom Dragon are left.
Standard random encounters are balanced perfectly, almost every enemy is a threat now, can't really say anything about that.
Mimic and Djinn fights were very painful, bot manageable, so that's cool. It gets pretty old to fight 5th or so djinn that just blasts you with 3 Pyroclasms/Spark Plasmas each turn, though.
As for bosses :
Serpent: Probably my favorite fight in the series now. The occasional Potent Cure made it a lot more intense, making the fight a damage race while stile forcing you to play somewhat defensively.

Avimander: I am not sure when you are supposed to fight it, but considering you need to have cleared Tundaria Tower for it and the tower seems to be the hardest dungeon in the Eastern sea, it seems like you should fight Avimander just before Poseidon. In that case, it's a pushover boss that just doesn't have very threating skills. Star Mine especially dealt very low damage. Are you sure it still has the HP% damage?

Poseidon: Absolute memefest. Got absolutely BTFO the first, second and the third time. After that I just used the proven Storm Lizard strategy consisting of healing and charging up djinni for summons. Ulysses summon was an absolute beast this fight. Deals damage comparable to meteor, a lot easier to charge up and uses up otherwise very weak mercury djinni. It also stunned one Poseidon's action about 35-40% of the time. I really want to like this fight a lot more, but there seems to be a bug with his Veil skill. It is supposed to recharge his force field, right? Because if I remember correctly, it did exactly that for about 2 or 3 times, and then just... stopped doing it and became just reskinned Ward. If it really reapplies the invulnerability and I wasn't tripping, then there is a bug that prevents it from working  after a few casts.  If it worked properly, though, then I'd probably have to reevaluate Serpent's #1 position.

Moapa and his homies are still a joke, Karst and Agatio felt somewhat weak, especially considering it is the only fight in the game you don't have to win to continue. That probably doesn't matter, though, because they are only a teaser for the Flame Dragons.

Flame Dragons felt like they really weren't intended to be fought before optional teleport dungeons and at level 34. They have left me a bit traumatized. The sheer unpredictability of 4 enemy actions each turn was bad enough, and random stuns/instakills/djinnfests were just an icing on the cake. I mean I managed to beat them after a while, but they are probably about 30% harder than anything the game threw at you before this point (including Deadbeard and Poseidon). Maybe don't nerf them (considering you can fight them a lot later, missing out only one Djinn), but definitely don't buff them.

My final review and opinions about bonus dungeons, classes and equipment is coming soon.

Follow up from my last post, v1.75 has benn released.

Only changes to the psynergy lines of a few classes.

Archon: Bind -> Sleep
Jonin: Impact -> Delude
Protector (Piers): Heal -> Bravery
Sea Lord: Impact -> Sleep
Guru (Mia): Avoid -> Break
Arcanist: Break -> Sleep

First change was removing Heal from Protector, then i noticed that i had way too many Impact/Bravery and Breaks so i took a few of them from the best classes and replaced them with kinda dummy (but rare) spells like Sleep and Delude that disappeared from class lines almost completely.

Making Break and Impact rarer and at the same time moving them to less used classes will increase those classes' worth.

No. This is a rom hack of both games. You do not have to transfer anything, but you have the same limitations you would have in vanilla if you don't transfer. IE. Missing Djinn, no Dullahan, etc.

At around what level am I supposed to fight Poseidon? I found the last few bosses a bit hard but managed to beat them by using buffs but since this one can clear them I cant manage to do much

Hello,

first of all, congratulations for this mod, it looks great and it feels like a lot of work and love went into it.

I have a couple minor questions before I start playing:

- Will I mess anything up if I use the "outdated" editor to change a couple things (a couple of class or item names, maybe a couple of drop rates). I don't have/don't know ho to use visual studio.
- Has anyone checked if the mod is compatible with retroachievements? This one really isn't all that important, it's just that I recently discovered it and I thought I might try it.

That's all, thanks for your time.

Salanewt: Nice work hiding the searchbots Atrius!
19, March, 2020, 04:23:34 PM
Salanewt: I was wondering when I said that stuff! May need to work it out with Kain.

Daddy Poi: (The simplest being to not accept char IDs pass 255, I think.)
19, March, 2020, 05:33:15 AM
Daddy Poi: Heheh.... I'm just testing. You pretty much gave it away. Hahah. It seems to look fairly convincing, but I'm sure there's an easy solution to preventing it.
19, March, 2020, 05:28:50 AM
Atrius: Whelp, there it goes... Just what I didn't want.  Have fun with that I guess...   
19, March, 2020, 05:20:25 AM
Daddy Poi: So like. Replace the "e" with another "e"? Alright. Gotcha.
19, March, 2020, 05:04:41 AM
Daddy Poi: Good work.
19, March, 2020, 04:44:10 AM
Atrius: Nah, any member could change their name to what I did, there's a trick to it.  I just fixed it so that now the Cbox will use your new name if you change it though, so... That part of the problem is fixed.
19, March, 2020, 04:41:53 AM
Daddy Poi: For which? It may be that normal users can't change their names to used names, but admins can?
19, March, 2020, 04:39:57 AM
Atrius: Sorry if the Cbox keeps breaking, I'm trying to make that be less of a thing.
19, March, 2020, 04:02:04 AM
Daddy Poi: Looks like ID Fraud. You're under arrest. :D  Oh wait.
19, March, 2020, 03:57:56 AM
Atrius: Yup, that's a thing.
19, March, 2020, 03:57:08 AM
Atrius: Just testing something, for science.
18, March, 2020, 04:05:12 PM
Salanewt: Sounds good; thanks for looking into it!

17, March, 2020, 01:14:25 PM
Atrius: Hmm... Actually I need a different way to hide them.  Now there are 4 guests spread over 3 pages of users...
17, March, 2020, 01:04:22 PM
Atrius: Yeah, their usernames don't get changed, they're hidden now.
09, March, 2020, 11:37:02 PM
Daddy Poi: So um. When sorting by User, does it treat Guest and Searchbot as being the same name?
09, March, 2020, 11:20:43 PM
Daddy Poi: Most likely. Perhaps we could do a toggle, or a second page that becomes the new default.(Which can have a link to the old original page.) My thoughts.
09, March, 2020, 10:21:11 PM
Salanewt: Hey Atrius; would it be possible to hide the searchbots from the "users online" list?
