    Review updated again, after a fellow user informed me of the fact that the Fire Flower is actually a Superball Flower, and that those were Bombshell Koopas, not the normal kind that leave their shells behind.

    After doing some research, regarding Mario's sprite behavior, and talking with the author of the ROM-hack, I'm re-reviewing this game with a fresh mindset.

Faster or Slower Spell Grinding

Hack of Secret of Mana

Description:

This hack offers six different options for adjusting the pace of spell grinding:

  • ~149%, or about 1.5x as much grinding (~270 casts per elemental). (Has serious side effects, see below!)
  • ~77%, or about 3/4 as much grinding (~141 casts per elemental).
  • ~64%, or about 2/3 as much grinding (~117 casts per elemental).
  • ~55%, or a bit more than half as much grinding (~100 casts per elemental).
  • ~48%, or a bit less than half as much grinding (~87 casts per elemental).
  • ~32%, or about 1/3 as much grinding (~58 casts per elemental).

Important things to note:

  • The original game is roughly 181 casts per elemental.
  • All figures listed here are for combat zones. When in a non-combat zone, grinding takes twice as many casts.
  • The 149% hack has a couple side effects: 1. You cannot gain spell levels past level 7 in non-combat zones and 2. You cannot ever attain the 8:99 special spells under any circumstances.
  • Apply this to an unheadered ROM.
