I know how to beat the first boss this morning. Do you?
First, you can only stock up to 6 magic stones, right? The ones furthest to the left are used first. Try and get two yellow stones for that, then all the blue you can find. Two yellow stones cast into a pretty long lasting armor spell which cuts down damage a lot
Second, wherever you passed out, you can go back in from the beginning
. For example, if you're KO'd at the boss, just choose Story Mode, and waltz right in. Unbarriered exits stay unbarriered. This way you can avoid a lot of enemy bullcrap, which also explains why there are barrels stocked with blue crystals
Finally, how to dodge. The boss pattern is fairly predictable, but I can feel you on the jump and pound attack which puts Yoshi to shame. This is optional, but pay attention to the damn magic stone drops. You do NOT want to pick up the wrong set of stones at the wrong time
First, just stay up close, and hack away. Use any offensive magic right off. The faster you kill this Golem the better. When it raises the right hand, you dodge (hit and jump button pressed together) to where the left waist is, and vice versa. After a couple of punches, it will do a spinning whirl, so before that happens, get the frick away. Then you have to save your magic : it's gonna jump
If you're like me, using fixed camera, you'll lose track of the surroundings and end up getting bagged. Don't worry, I solved this all on my own. BEFORE it's gonna jump, it has done the spinning whirl. So after it does just that, run straight away from him. If you're like me using fixed camera at its direction, just run towards your camera. If it doesn't jump the second time it's just gonna pound on the ground like the first pattern
Repeat this and boom
Oh, and one more thing. Chantelise takes place and was made before Recettear, and the two of them along with Territoire are in the same world. We still have no idea how large the planet is, but we know that both Chantelise and Recettear have crazy dialogues. Gonna take some time getting used to a boisterous and bragful fairy though, because I liked Tear and how she deals with stuff
