Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin’s first main DLC addition is right here. Trials of the Dragon King, named for the legendary dragon Bahamut, provides new jobs just like the summoner, evoker, and pilgrim. It’s additionally garnering some complaints from the group about the best way it’s structured.

ResetEra member PolskiGamer17 introduced some points to the eye of the favored gaming discussion board, stating that Trials of the Dragon King’s content material is “locked behind the hardest difficulty in the game” of their thread. That “hardest difficulty” stage is Chaos, which is simply unlocked upon ending the game and seeing the ending. From the get-go, Final Fantasy Origin gamers must beat the game earlier than they’ll even begin Trials of the Dragon King.

This leads into the second main gripe. The essential job of the DLC entails buying particular dragon armor that solely drops on a fair larger difficulty tier, named Bahamut after the dragon king itself. This is eliciting additional complaints about having to grind by way of preexisting missions to finish the brand new content material. “This DLC is ‘earn a new type of currency by running through old levels again and maybe something will happen,’” says fellow forum member Valcrist, condensing their complaints into one sentence.

Other replies try to put a helpful spin on the situation. Lemony1984 points out that the first mission of Trials of the Dragon King cannot be failed and supplies the player with high-level gear upon completion; that at least helps prep for the Bahamut difficulty-level challenges to come. Others point out that grinding isn’t as tedious in Stranger of Paradise as it may be in different Final Fantasy video games and RPGs. That doesn’t change the truth that you have to grind to finish the DLC, however it’s useful nonetheless.

We’ll should see how the remaining DLC fares. There are three missions included within the game’s season move. Wanderer of the Rift and Different Future will comply with Trials of the Dragon King.
