Anyone bothered doing all the (available) battles?
I've never bothered previously, the intention has always been there, I thought they were determined by time rather than events. As I have tried on previous play troughs, and have only ever done like 3 of them before getting to the mandatory one.
I'm glad I wiki'd it this time, or I would have ended up missing them all again, as I was stupidly running around the Junon area (I was limit training, so my time wasn't totally wasted) trying to initiate the next battle, when I discovered I had to go to Junon and fight Bottomswell first.
So, so far so good, Im at Cosmo Canyon and Ive already fought 4 battles. I'l bastard do it this time
So, do you do them, if you do, what's your stratgey? Do you try to get soldiers out dependent on what you're likely to face, or dop you shove whatever down and hope for the best. Or do you simply wait for the boss to advance to the hut? (you don't get the item if the party has to fight the boss though I don't think)
I tend to fill the middle area up right across the board, I tryyyyy to be tactical about it, I tend to forget what I'm facing though, and try to keep it mixed up, I will tend to heed the guy in the huts advice though
I'l then just send them all down and try to block the way in, halting the enemy attack before the boss gets a sniff in. So far so good
