Note i say weak, though i am still only on disc 1 my strongest characters, Cloud (LV 18), Barrette (LV 17), and Red XLL (LV 18) are far too weak for me to continue, i've spent over an hour running randomly looking for battles before i can continue threw this sandy pathway where i fight a huge King cobra that is perfectly capable of killing my characters in 2 hits. I dont have too much patience when it comes to this type of stuff in video games, and i'm not even sure what level i should be at before i dare try attacking that thing again but untill i do i am stuck at Midgar area.
incase your wondering, since it may be important for you to know this to help me better my Materia for each character is
Cloud: Quake, Bio
Barrette: Quake, Bolt, Ice
Red XLL: Cure, Fire.
Anything else i will have to get back at you (except for CLoud's HP which is 666 -_-.......)
So what do you recomend me doing so i can level up FAST? and also what level should i be at to fight the oversized serpent? thank you for helping!
