Dealing with the middle can be annoying.
After the early parts of the stage, you can find yourself stuck in a rut. Sometimes, the middle stages of the game can be more of a transition than anything else. Sometimes, the middle moves so fast you won’t have time to fix your equipment. Other times, you can stuck in the middle portion of the game because of this grand boss. Either way, having to deal with the middle stages can be hard especially in a game that relies not only on your maximized gears and abilities but also how you use them.
Fighting through the middle portion of the game
The middle portion starts at the Kingdom of Rogress to Aldina Grasslands. During these portions of the game, you’ll notice how titles now play a big part in bolstering your character’s stats. Each character has a special title that influences their power in battle. Also, the middle portion of the game will bring back many bosses you thought kicked the bucket a few portions back.
Before you proceed on further, start grinding for EXP. You’ll never know when you need a level or two to move up.
For this part of the game, you’ll have two new members: Magilou and Eleanor Hume. With these two characters, you can add a whole new variety to your party. When playing, the most recommended combinations are:
- Velvet/Laphicet/Eleanor Hume/Magilou
- This particular combination focuses more on Arcane Artes rather than Martial Artes. In this case, Eleanour and Velvet will play as the tanks. On the other hand, Laphicet and Magilou will be made to prioritize magic.
- Laphicet plays the support role while Eizen is a more versatile character here. Rokurou and Velvet can adopt the hit-and-run strategy while Laphicet buffs. Eizen can either focus on magic or use physical attacks to deal heavy damage.

The middle portion can get dragging.
While the story seems to have slowed down quite a bit, it doesn’t mean that the story is over. Velvet and the others need to do a lot of EXP farming at this point. That way, it will help you prepare for the other stages later on in the game. Also, you can come up with your own armour sets and combinations to bring out the best of your stats
