on your star ocean private action guide, i wanted to make a suggestion. it pertains to
45. After Arumat joins, BEFORE flying to En II
-Speak with him in the Battle Sim room and make sure you win the fight. Note: Save before you fight in case you lose.
this, (and any other PA battles) becomes much easier if before entering the battle, you go into the status menu and unequip everything that arumat is wearing. it doesn't negate magic, but it makes him pretty vulnerable and cripples his physical attack.
(i would have posted this in thread, but the thread is locked)
