ROTDS 1.7: Insane Mode (No NG+) Playthrough
It's been a while since my latest playthrough!
Since in the new version of ROTDS(1.7) Gi Nattak added a 4th difficulty that was supposed to be played only after starting a NG+, i decided to verify if it was possible to play this difficulty starting from 0.

The fact i'm posting this thread means that (after succeeding to escape from Narshe) this is not anymore just an attempt, i think i already confirmed that it's possible to do it, so here we go... the first 5 segments are already available:

Part 1
there's one very important trick that can help a lot, or being even essential to start the run: 
1) set battle speed at 1;
2) set battle messages speed at 6;
3) trigger "Can't run!" message in battle intentionally: while the message is displayed no one can act, but ATB is still filling itself for everybody,
     this can prevent being barraged from enemy attacks before even getting an action, requires some knowledge to use it properly, if used in the
     wrong way it can even backfire you! (you don't attack and enemies fill their ATB meanwhile)

Technically the whole concept of feasibility of this run revolves around the fact of being able to reach the first save point: if you can do it
 then you can save and fight random encounters as much as you want(and if you want it that bad you can grind until being overlevelled)
there are 2 big obstacles on the way:
- the mandatory pincer attack, this one is the worst fight;
- the prinny squad.


Part 2
the first two bosses are feasible without too much troubles, as far your allies have at least 200 max HP, well... enjoy the M-tek armors
as far you control them, real shit starts from when you travel alone with Aurora...


Part 3
Moogle war is kinda vicious: blue beasts are deadly, besides Marshal kicked my ass, in the next segment i'll start with Aurora which have
already got enough levels to make the fight reasonable(until level 9, don't know if it's possible below that level)

Part 4
this time i manage to kill him, the chosen team is Mog, which i think it has the better DPS and balancement to handle the fight
PS. damn, Mog stole my clothes!! my guys start almost naked... Sad


Part 5
Escaping all the day in world map, if Aurora runs out of MP, fighting is not a good option... actually even escaping from enemies is not free.
At least i manage to kill 2 magitek boss fight without too much troubles: as i expected, after i get Serin and his Cosmic aether, battles becomes a lot more feasible. 
PS: i stole a purple stuff! that damn knife is worth his price.  


Part 6
Thank to god the zombie was sliceable with Buster Sword. period.

Part 7
Long preparation segment: real shit is coming.


Part 8
Raped from random encounters... it would have been better learning Warp before doing this area...


Part 9
Guess what? Saibamens are overpower, ALL bosses who heal themselves are overpower, their sunbath in particular.
tried to figure out how to deal with them, in preparation of the real fight(i'm kinda sure they are in any case harder than Raditz)
grinding time(offline), hopefully before i reach AVG lv 18

part 10
to defeat Saibamens the ideal is reaching lv 18 so that Aurora learns tier 2 spells and deals some serious damage.
Unfortunately Raditz is somehow broken: i mean, it's basically an error(the first bosses after this one are weaker)
due to the fact his HP depend on an AI command, and it can't be checked a value higher than ~32000 HP.
Combined to his very high DPS, i had to level up until Cloud learnt Force Steal(lv 25) to win the fight.


part 11
Not really much: just a bunch of preparation and misc stuff


part 12
As expected, due to Raditz anomaly, Ultros is not anymore a significant danger... too bad.

part 13
The thing which worried me the most was the throw that Gilgamesh does in the second part of the battle(don't remember if Astral's death triggers gameover), in any case the fight lasts a lot since my DPS proven to be weak here.


part 14
Finally Tifa joins the party! i like MUCH more her magic spell set than Aurora's one


part 15
I guess that, starting from TunnelArmr counterpart bossfight the difficulty curve returns stable.
Finally with Tifa i can buff with spells? no, the boss knows Last Word Tongue
the third scenario without spell will be a tragedy, but looks like Avalon gonna save the day in this difficulty,
nice 1vs1 against the shadow knight, btw Wink
