Had my first close call today while doing some exploring at the start of the Misty Ravine. One of the bison rampaged multiple times in one turn and knocked Skylar out, so I had to retreat, use a Nectar, so on and so forth (because I’m obsessive about everyone leveling up at the same time, just like I am in FF1iOS).
I also tried out a couple easy peasy QR quests, which I didn’t dabble with during my Casual playthrough. They’re interesting, but definitely feel like… well, QR quests. They’re much less interesting than the in-download/on-card quests, though maybe the further I get into the game the better they’ll get. So far just getting a couple Twenty Bear Asses quests isn’t that thrilling, but the experience payouts can’t be passed up.
Also, everyone hit level 25 today!
