For some reason starting a new game starts you at level 14? There is also a lack of player agency in battle, or maybe the fact that it drops you in the thick of things with no tutorial makes it so I don't understand things that I should. Considering the other problems, battles taking such a long time just makes everything worse. (or is there some other way to remove that regen/immortality from the lead enemy?)
If that issue with the start point is addressed and mechanics made clearer, this game has potential with it's mechanics, but it's just frustrating in it's current form.
