CONERIA TOWN VISIT 1
TEMPLE OF FIENDS VISIT 1
|Before you head off to the Temple of Fiends for the hardest battle of your life<---sarcasm> you should be at least at level 2. Conventionally level 3 is recommended. You also probably need more money for spells or potions. So you'll want to do some fighting. FIGHT, MAGIC, and RUN are fairly self-explanatory, DRINK lets you use HEAL or PURE potions, and ITEM lets you use your weapons & armor for effects in battle. The WSC and PS versions combine the DRINK command into the ITEM command, and also adds EQUIP, which allows you to switch weapons and armor in battle.|
|Unlike later FF games, attacks aren't redirected if the enemy dies. So you have to spread your attacks out, or your character will swing at the dead enemy and you will get an "Ineffective" message. The WSC and PS versions have fixed this problem, but give you the option to turn the fix off.|
|Here's one of the most important things to know: RUN AWAY!
If you are low on HP: RUN AWAY!
If you come across an enemy that is too hard (ex. 2 ogres when you are at level 2): RUN AWAY!
If you come across a screen full of wolves before you know a "kill all" spell: RUN AWAY!
If you come across an enemy that can poison you before you know the PURE spell: RUN AWAY!
If you come across an enemy that can kill you easily and just isn't worth the risk: (ex. cocktrice, sorcerer) RUN AWAY!
