Easy Mode question
« on: July 30, 2011, 05:02:00 AM »
I've read up that Final Fantasy XIII Japanese PS3 now has the Easy Mode that was included in the Xbox 360 international version. How exactly does the Easy Mode make the game any more easier to beat?

I do believe the Easy Mode increases the damage enemies take during Break/Stagger status and increases drop rates. But those are the only two I'm sure of and I'm not sure if there's more. The latter makes farming Adamantoise much more bearable.

When you are inflicted with doom the counter is longer. I know the counter for the final boss is doubled.

The heck? That means the final boss counter is well over 8000. The same is for the Eidolon battles and whenever any other enemy inflicts you with Doom. (ex. Attacus)

The Final Boss is easy just with the 4000 Doom Counter, 8000 is overkill. Now I'm hoping they don't include easy mode in XIII-2.

I'd rather have that they include an easy mode than that they make the easy mode the standard mode. You'd be supprised how many remakes/ports have been build from an previous easy mode.

Well, I remember someone at Square (I think it was Kitase) saying that they were looking into giving players the ability to control the difficulty level of battles. I do believe in the Japanese PS360 versions of XIII, Easy Mode can be turned off to be put back into regular difficulty mode in the config menu.

I'm assuming this, but do enemies hit less harder in Easy Mode? Like an Adamantoise, who originally hits your party for 10k while unprotected, experiences a drop in damage in this mode.

Enemies do hit less harder than in regular mode, but not by much. An Adamantoise can still one shot you if you are unprepared.

If you take to long during a boss battle you can expect it to eventually cast doom yea. This is to prevent you from killing it the easy way, for example 2 healers and an attacker.

I don't know if the first form has Doom because he has that Insta-kill attack so I never survived long enough to find out. But the second form always casts Doom at the start of the battle.
