I'm playing through Ni No Kuni right now, really like it but man, there are some very annoying flaws that I want to know if there are fixes for it.
I'm at the part where you just got Esther and you're going to the sage trials in the desert. My problem is Esther just keeps getting knocked out no matter what I tell her to do, using items to give her more magic or HP seems like a total waste since she'll just get KO'd anyway.
My second complaint, and maybe I should be buying loads of those items to give MP but all my familiars seem so weak that it makes more sense to play as the kid during battles and use fireball or pulse on enemies but then i'm literally stuck walking around, defending until a blue MP orb is randomly dropped to recharge because I'm always running out of MP.
Random enemies do a lot of damage with certain attacks surprisingly even while playing on easy.
Can anyone tell me if this gets less annoying or if theres something I can do to alleviate Esther's annoying deaths and having to wait to get more MP? If anyone has advice its appreciated these two issues are annoying me so very much.
