The Titan Goes!
Chapter 0: Lets' Play Tales of symphonia a bit differently...
... by soloing the game with Lloyd! sort of.
So a few months back I started to think of a playing Tales Of Symphonia again, but I'd already played through it a lot and wanted to try something new. I decided, after I saw videos of Lloyd absolutely DESTROYING certain bosses, that I'd do a solo through it with him.
The settings of the solo were 10x exp on Mania mode. The rules are:
-All allies set to semi-auto so they can't do anything
-Lloyd is the only one allowed to use items in battle with one exception (I'll get into that later)
-Allies are allowed to act as distractions, but I can't revive them if they're killed in battle until you sleep at an inn
What your allies CAN do:
-heal me outside of battle with magic
-revive me with life bottles in battle
-use techs in unison attacks, and can be used to set up for unison combos
So far I've reached the Balucruf Mausoleum and am planning on training there for a while. I'm at level 40 so far.

Thanks for the comment! I actually haven't had too much trouble so far, although the difficulty does seem to be catching up to me so I may need to grind a bit more. On my Lloyd setup, my skills are mostly strike (I'm using Life-Up and Spirit-Up compound EX-skills to get my HP and TP up) and I prefer a title that helps the stats I need. My best title so far is Master Swordsman since I didn't transfer titles over, although I'll probably switch to Sword of Swords when I get it.
