There is absolutely nothing interesting to do in a boss fight.
Boss Mystic Arts being non-threatening is not a plus either...
Have to admit, I'm not even that far yet (I assume, since I don't have the last two party members yet) but I've been setting the difficulty down to Story for boss fights just because they're too tedious otherwise.

Either let me break their iron stance in a hit or two like in Rays or don't have it regenerate after only like 3 seconds.

Speaking of, I wonder if, like Rays, some artes have massive bonuses to breaking iron stance...

I had no problems till the second lord on normal difficulty. Without the combo encounters effect, it is too tedious to level up until the 3rd region. The first 2 regions didn’t give enough exp to allow me to dps one of his phases quickly enough. Burned way too many items just to survive.

Bosses (and also any regular enemies that were once bosses) just do not get comboed. You can make them stagger or flinch, but that's it. That's when knockdown Boost Attacks like Alphen's become valuable since it's a free damage window.

Breaking iron stance is dependent on your Attack and Penetrate stats vs their Defense and Resistance stats. If your Penetrate stat is high enough, you can at least make them flinch and will deal Criticals more often. If not, you're in for a long fight.

Looking forward to Idolmaster Cinderella Girls cameo fight or maybe God Eater series cameo fight.

To be honest I just find it kind of amazing that they actually brought in characters from another franchise to begin with. I guess it helped that Kirito's VA is in it in both dubs, but still .

Probably the closest thing to an SAO game getting dubbed .

Paying for collabs with other franchises at least makes sense. There are licensing fees to pay.

There is no excuse paying for Tales cameos when they come from the same franchise.

I'm kind of surprised, but not in a bad way really. Plus it's a pretty harmless move. Can get these cameo fights, outfits, etc or just ignore it without much issue.

Definitely not surprised there's a cost to it. Getting SAO characters literally in the game is going to have costs to pay and the DLC costs are expected to make that worth it.

Will see if I feel like getting it. Just finished the main game. But there's always post-game stuff and/or a replay down the road.

Is anybody else having an issue getting the DLC items to load up in the menu when you access the PlayStation store through the game? When I go to the PlayStation store directly all the Arise DLC shows up properly.

Last year I did finished playing Arise on PC. Dohalim and Kisara's all cool and well, but am very disappointed at the lame main antagonist.

Bring back antagonists like Artorius and Van Grants.
