Yesterday I finally managed to do something I've never done before in all my PSII playthrough...reaching LV50 with all my 4 party members (Rolf, Rudo, Anna, Amy, last one being the longest to reach).

I mean I finished the game number of time in the past, on the Genesis, GBA, PS2, etc..., and I reached the level cap with all characters (Nei included before her death) by using the Complete Collecting on very easy mode which gave 4 times the XP, but it was kinda cheating. Yesterday, I finally managed to reach the level cap with my 4 party members like I said on the Wii VC (no way to cheat on this to my knowledge). It was totally pointless, but this is something I always wanted to do in the past, having done it in PSI, PSIII and PSIV, but never in PSII, which was the longest to grind.

So I was wondering, after all those years since PSII release on the Genesis, did you ever reached the level cap before without cheating? Just by grinding normally? Did you do it with Rolf solo? A standard party of 4? All 7 (8) characters? Pointless topic, but I'm curious...

No. Once I finally get Megid (after hours and hours of grinding), I'm almost ready to throw the game against the wall.

Nope, I can't say I ever hit the cap on this one. Grinding is something I've never really enjoyed in games very much. It requires a lot of time, so I tend to avoid it in favor of going on to something new, like another game. I don't mind some grinding, but extra work just to reach a level cap never sat too well with me.

With Nei certainly because I always want to kill Neifirst with her. With the others probably once, but that is not an enjoyable thing to do. It is just that I like PSII too much to do that :p

I did, ages and ages ago. It was just something I did for kicks, and since you couldn't save with the Game Genie I didn't bother cheating (yes, this was on a real Genesis kiddies).

Yep. I had the game at least lurking in the background throughout most of the 1990s. I'd pick away at it a little at a time. I've never done solos before, though. They're just not my thang.

I'm sure I thought about trying at some point but gave up early on.

Not really. PS2's characters (Nei being the exception) level rather slowly and the enemies in the final dungeon don't exactly give out-of-the-ordinary experience (in fact, several of the enemies were first encountered 4 dungeons earlier), which makes max-levelling even more tedious. Last time I played I got Rolf to 35 and the rest to 30...and that was already going very, very slowly. It's not like anyone gets any exciting new techniques beyond that level.

I did it on the XBLA version because there was a leaderboard for it. Unfortunately it's been hacked since, and it's incredibly broken anyway. Basically once you hit 35 with Rolf, it's easy. What I did was kill off all of my characters except Rolf, so he got 4x exp. My leveling spot was in Noah. 1 Megid ends any random battle, so just do that 1 or 2 times, then use the Neisword to return to Lutz, and have him restore you. Rinse, repeat. The whole process, from level 28, when I finished the game, to max exp, which is quite a bit higher than level 50 took around 8 hours.

I only levelled Nei to level 50 because because I wanted to beat Neifirst. I fought self-replicating blasters until I hit the XP cap to gain her last ten levels at once.
