I need to figure out boosting as well, and how to read the turn monitor thingy as well. Fighting is complex, which I really like. I have a question on getting E Pts and T Pts. Do you have to use ether and tech attacks during the battle to gain E Pts and T Pts, or do you just gain them every fight, similar to overall experience? I just rescued MOMO, and got off the base. It seems boss fights really are pattern based. You need to figure out a good sound strategy to beat them, more so then other RPGs I've played. The guy with the sword was an incredible fight. I loved the fire absorption spell he used, dragon something. I'm 6+ hours in and still loving this game!
