I am stuck on the seven-star Village quest "The Write Stuff."
It is the one where you hunt a Jade Barroth and a Gigginox.
A full set of Barroth S Armor (AuM, DuS, Raise Hunger), gemmed for Negate Poison to protect from Gigginox's poison attacks, and I fight with a pair of Brother Blazes (Dual Sword, sliver of blue sharpness, 238 ATK, 140 Fire.)
The problem I have is that they keep triple-carting me.
The only other seven-star quest I still have not finished is Rumble in the Great Desert, but I would like to defeat The Write Stuff first.
If there are no decent strategies that I have not thought of yet, I will accept the name of the game's designer...
