Nothing much (some people know this anyway), but you can do the Archive Fiend Challenge as early as Chapter 6. Now I know why I didn't get the full 100.000 Kill Limit bouns at the end. Plus that extra KI slot is very handy to have earlier.

I usually do it in Chapter 6 because I don't like doing it before the Alma fight.

Same here, I don't like doing two Fiend Challenges in the same Chapter.

yeah but then you don't have the lvl 3 dragon sword, or the flails, and if you NEED the extra ninpo slot, then you're gonna waste alot of elixirs when you don't have to.

Exactly. Which is why I always do that 60 Fiend challenge in Chapter 7. Besides, with beefed up weapons you can complete the challenge much faster which will increase your Kill bonus. I also save the Zombie 60 Fiend challenge for later in the game and do it on Chapter 15. Level 3 Dabilahro rapes this challenge. The Kill bonus is insane.

Yeah, that's how I do all the challenges that aren't in your path. If you could do it after chap 7, I'd do the archives on may way to the ritual room (in chapter 12 or 15).

But something that kinda annoyed me about the encounters is that the time bonus is always the same. Like you said, you can do the ritual room with SO much time left (I think I had 480 secs left once) but you still only get 10k

True, but you still get rewarded for the remaining time in the Kill Bonus.

This is from aaxe's karma faq:
Quote:
Kills
-----
Your kills are multiplied by 1000 at the end of a finished encounter (except in
the cases of bosses where the kills are multiplied by 100000). The kill score
is modified such that a percentage of how many seconds were left on the clock
are multiplied by a factor, depending on the type of enemy killed and then
added to the kill score (not the Time Bonus).


So the equation for calculating the Kill bonus is:
Total Kill Bonus = 1000 * (Regular kills) + 100000 * (Boss Kills) + (Time factor) where Time factor = [1000 * (Regular Kills) + 100000 * (Boss Kills)] * (Time Remaining) / (Total Encounter Time).

In HP2 (not sure about HP1) you get 5000 instead of 1000 points for every kill.

I'm pretty sure it's 5,000 per enemy in HP#1 as well. I usually average 25,000 for a kill bonus from each encounter containing 3 enemies.

Why are y'all doing 60 Fiend Challenges? You should be doing the 100 Fiend Challenge! C'MON, I know you guys are better than that!

they say 60 fiend challenge because on MNT1 it is on normal


if your trying to get karma points you should only kill 59 of then in chapter 6 and use the nunchaku to get combo points then finish the challenge in chapter 7

You don't have to do the 60 fiend challenge to get the Kill limit. Before you enter the Monastary unlock the gate and head out and be surprised by a new encounter. If you walk around that area you should find 2 more new encounters.

Thanks about that. Man, you do keep finding new things about this game (and I have it a year already).
