Ys: The Oath in Felghana

Part 8: Genos

It's an update!

Mush Man helped.

The Abandoned Mines is a dungeon. There's really not much to say short of the boss other than "this area is hard and some enemies don't hit-stun".
I'm saving the boss for the next update, because I need to scrape together to get another full episode before Eldarm Mountains. Also the PSP content in this episode will be featured as a bonus update because I feel the need to keep the PSP recording seperate just for this section of the game.

Let's look at some enemies:

The only enemies I really want to explain here are the Doradels and Gel-Grads. Doradels are immune to any form of stun, be it hitstun or downward stabs. They have a lot of health, have high defense, high attack and strike in groups. Any difficulty Hard Mode or higher I'd say be extremely cautious about these guys, they're painful. Gel-Grads are not as bad as Doradels except for their extremely high damage and ludicrous range. The range is really deceptive and they can snipe you with a free hit from off-screen if you're unlucky. If you see one of these guys get in the air and stay there until you can get a good downward stab stun and you'll be fine.

Snare of Darkness
Not a huge fan of this track. It's an adequate arrangement, don't get me wrong, I just never really liked it or the original.
