    Formatting error with Headline, it was necessary to remove the Italics bbCode. I assume that bbCode doesn't work in the entry box for Headlines, not that it matters. That was unknown to me, this being my first review entry. Also some minor touch-ups to the main review text, and placed [List] bbCode for the Luna and Dryad subsections. That hopefully improves the readability of such a lengthy text block!

Harder Final Boss

Hack of Secret of Mana

Description:

This patch significantly steps up the difficulty of the two phases of the final boss fight (Dark Lich and Mana Beast) so as to subvert the “final boss is a pushover” trope common to so many RPGs. These fights will now be much longer and reasonably challenging even if you max level your characters.

Specific changes for Dark Lich:

  • Level increased from 72 to 99.
  • HP increased from 6666 to 46666.
  • Strength increased from 74 to 99.
  • Intelligence increased from 96 to 99.
  • Wisdom increased from 96 to 99.
  • Spell power increased from 44 to 99.

Specific changes for the Mana Beast:

  • Level increased from 73 to 99.
  • HP increased from 9990 to 65535.
  • Spell power increased from 45 to 99.
  • Now immune to all elements.

Important things to note:

  • Because their HP is so high now, Analyzer may give misleading results about their HP (see screenshot).
  • Because these fights will be so much longer now, you might want to consider combining this with patches that introduce the “Faerie Coconut” second MP restorative item and/or patches that increase the total number of items you can have in your inventory as well to take the edge off a bit.
  • If you want to apply any game-wide difficulty mods such as the hacks in “Adjust Enemy Difficulty,” be sure to apply those first, then this hack after.
