The 7th Saga is an RPG that is infamous for its high difficulty and tedious grinding. Although the battle system is actually well designed, much of the math that governs it is senseless and discredits an otherwise exceptional game. This Patch Attempts to make the game challenging, but also require much less grinding than before. The 7 characters you can choose to play have been made more unique and more effective. All monsters have received changes to their stats: they generally are more difficult, but they give a lot more experience than they did before. In the original game the 3 magic elements of fire, ice, and lightning weren’t very important because almost all enemies had the same resistances to all 3 elements. In this patch, a lot more monsters have unique elements that they are weak and resistant to.

Enough balance to walk a tightropeReviewed By: Old_gamer on 24 Sep 2019
We are all familiar with the 7th Saga due to it’s notorious difficulty. I managed to beat this back in the day (many curse words later) and has little replay value despite having 7 different characters to choose from.
Now here is a proper re balanced style that fixes the major problems that made this title brutal in difficulty but at the same time, keeps the challenge alive, but far more fair. Elements now have a purpose as we have resistances and weaknesses to them and balanced stats that have a better focus on magic (Even Wilme) that can make his once laughable magic stat be actually quite lethal. There is a little bit more equipment for the other characters that generally have little to choose from now can improve on this. Adds flavor.
Do not think that the villians are simple though, with the balanced stats makes for different strategies. Some enemies (including bosses) have a different style of fighting to keep you on your guard. Experience is granted more to reduce the tedious grinding as well. The scrip is untouched however. So, don’t expect a new story, it’s the same as we remember it.
This hack truly gives this title a second chance to retry. No one gets an unfair advantage. And folks who never played this, well go for it! Credit to the creator of this face-lift. (Now if only a new re-write or new game would be created!)
