I put the game on hard and steamroll through everything. Nothing is a challenge. The game gives you insanely high quality weapons if you know how to obtain them. You have to spend like 10 hours in the beginning for grinding to max out all your current jobs and get the weapon drops from those special monster bosses. It makes the game easy peasy
