The fastest way to reach the end game
 
-while attempting main story bosses and most optional ones
 
-while providing a reasonable challenge by being underleveled
 
-without status effects, ranged abilities, or other forms of an easier time (sorry)
 
-without “cheese farm”
 
-without obscure, hard to reach mini bosses
 
 
This is a guide for myself to refer to when I have more time to play and learn the bosses properly
 
 
I am too lazy and bad at this game but I don’t want to farm mini-enemies over and over again just to level up
