Well, I finally reached the last boss, and I was killed easily. I had almost no life shrooms or any extra items I could use. I knew I needed more badge points, and higher HP. SO, I decided to go back to Rogueport and do the Pit of 100 Trials. The first time, i got killed at level 73. I knew that I messed up with my badges combos, so I decided to look at FAQs for help.
Yesterday, I decided to try again. I started at 7:15 or so, maybe earlier. I was pissed that I could not leave the pit of 100 trials, and come back...I had to go through all of them! Anyways, I did really well and at 98, I leveled up. Then 99...OH god, I hated that level because of the Elite Wizzard...my HP started at 90, and it got down to 40 or something...that was GOD awful!! I only had two good partners left as the others were killed.
Then came Bonetail.
I was told to use PowerJumps as it can really bring him down...what I didn't KNOW was I could use it on his PAW, not his head...no wonder WHY it didn't work!!! What a waste of FlowerPoints!! All my partners were killed, I had NO items (seriously, NONE!), and I used up all my ultra shrooms (I had 3, so that brought me up 30 HP). All my Star Points were gone because I used one from level 99 (what a PIA), and then my audience got bombed so it was raising as much. I knew that if I died in Bonetail, I would have to start this whole thing all over again, and then I would be more pissed because of Level 99! I kept using normal jumps because NO flowerpoints, NO Starpoints, and all my partner was dead. The few times that Bonetail swatted me with his paw, I got "LUCKY" cuz he missed, thank goodness for Lucky Day, Lucky Start, Pretty lucky!. Then I hit him one last time.....FINALLY HE's DEAD!!!!!!!!! Guess what my HP was? 4 out of 90! Man, one more swat, I would have been dead...SERIOUSLY!!
OH gosh, you wouldn't believe the RELIEF when I finally beat the crap out of him! Then I had to be careful on going back to Rogueport to go to the inn. I had 999 coins before going in the pit, blew it all on all those shrooms....I didn't realize that it would get more expensive.
The time I finished... 11:35pm. LOL!! I felt so bad for my boyfriend because he was watching TV and stuff, not bothering me at all. He came home late due to a class he wanted to take, but still! I profusely apologized to him for letting the game get me so involved!
BUT DAMN IT...I COMPLETED it with 4 HP left...using NO flowerpoints, NO partner at all...dang!
NEXT - I probably will go around Rogueport sewers and kill enemies, and maybe go around a few towns and kill them so I can at least get a lot of coins back to buy more items...good thing I have quite a LOT stocked up at shops because i didn't have enough room, now I can put in 20 items using Strange Sack. I should have no problem beating the crap out of Shadow Queen. :-)
