After a myriad of sidequests (again) I attempted the optional Imperial Base known as Formouth Garrison.
Once again, this sidequest practically required stealth in order to not get HORRIBLY REKT. Which, as you should know by now, I'm not the greatest at.
So yeah I failed on my first attempt again. Though, to be honest, I just wasn't sure what to do.
The second attempt was better. Though, the final fight was a A PAIN IN THE ASS. Two large mechs at once. Even using the turret doesn't really do all that much as you can be interrupted by the mechs and practically be put into the 'Danger' area VERY FAST.
I got a Game Over on my first attempt against the 2 mechs. But I was victorious on my second attempt. BUT MY GOD. I HAD TO WASTE A LOT OF ITEMS.
Keep in mind my party is in the 60's and the recommended level for this (according to the walkthrough anyway) is 45.
Despite my victory I wanted to gather the items around the area. Even that caused some problems as more annoying mechs were around the area, causing long battles and even more item loss. Yeah... I'd say this is probably the worst sidequest in the game so far. Or, at the very least, the worst Imperial Army base mission in the game.
Keep in mind, I've yet to do Crestholm Channels and Costlemark Tower which has been described, again by my walkthrough, as the hardest dungeons in the game. So we'll see how long Formouth Garrison holds as the 'worst sidequest in the game.'
I suppose it's not like it really mattered though. All the Broken Car and Rescue quests I did got me back to 100k Gil so it's not like I wasn't able to not buy my items back. Still though, the frustration of it...
But victory was achieved, and I suppose, in the end, that's really all that matters.
With that out of the way there aren't really many more sidequests left worth doing. Some of the hunts that are remaining I'm not sure I want to do. I don't want to put myself through ridiculously hard hunts.
I may not do many more sidequests before just doing Main Story only and just trying to finish the game. I do kind of want to at least attempt Crestholm Channels and Costlemark Tower but considering my experience with Formouth Garrison I may try to wait until my party is in the 70s or possibly until I'm close to the end of the game period.
I suppose it's something I'll have to think about. Either way hopefully I'll return to the main story soon. Or I'll try to anyway. Frustrating sidequests or not I'm still addicted to this game and it hasn't really taken my love of the game away. Besides, my experience with ridiculous difficulty has turned me into a persistent bastard where I just keep trying until I win. Which pretty much hasn't failed me yet.
For now though I may do a few more sidequest related things before returning to Main Story.
Hopefully I can finish sidequest related activity and return to the main story.
