I fought True Anemone for about two hours last night, completely unable to get it down past half health before it would just heal itself faster than I could wear it down. It was a real tax on my patience and my sanity. After pausing to look for help online, I learn that I simply didn't level up my spells enough. Really? I'm max level, have all the assists, weapons and armors, and that's not good enough?
Taking down the two bonus bosses was extremely tough (especially the angel one)
, but I still did it. The final boss fight? Forget it.
My experience is fairly similar, I didn't finish everything, but have one of my weapons max level and it's impossible to get past half of it's health, it heals too much too quickly. It's also bullshit that as soon as the healing phase is activated it's shield instantly refresh to full health.
If the problem is really in the level of spells than that's very poor game design as I always play melee characters and only used magic to get to areas and for healing/damage buff, those are also the only spells I upgraded. And this basicaly means I need to either restart the game or hope I have the stuff necessary to respec and build a magic focused character?
