Ask me about my Stream Deck
I'm at 175 and around 200 hours. No grinding, just carefully exploring every nook and cranny and meticulously taking my time. Basically playing the way Miyazaki said was wrong lol. I just got to Farum Azula. I think I've completed every optional boss, 100% of the side dungeons, all items up to where I am, etc. Still on my first playthrough.I'm calling bs on this.
You're telling me you got to lvl 170 without grinding for runes?
I'm 130+ hours in at lvl 150 and at the final boss(stuck for 2 weeks try to win without summons) but I still had to grind for runes.
I've almost completed all of the side quest.
There's not enough bosses in the game to get you to lvl 170 without grinding.
I think leveling would cost around 200k runes at that point.
