It´s very stupid and annoying there´s only one 'All' materia in the entire fucking game, two of them would have been perfect without making the game too easy.

Oh damn i completely forgot to use that,it is such a handy materia though.

It is indeed, just remember it goes by a different name now, 'magnify'.



Has anybody finished hard mode? Any preperation tips? I know that I will be maxing 6 hp and mp plus materials, if it's possible to get more magic plus materias I might consider replaying chapters to get them.

I'm most worried about the spongey levels. How much more Hp do enemies.... And bosses have?

No game+ available to keep your level?

I just finished chapter 14 on Hard. There are only 2 magic plus materias. Not sure about the HP but bosses become much, much harder. You have to learn their mechanics and different phases to beat some of them. You'll particularly enjoy Hell House ;)

The regular enemies will be a breeze at times, or once you equip the right materia. Managing of MP throughout a chapter is important. Magnify and Elemental will be your friends. Go check out chapter 17 battle simulator for some new fights or quick AP.

Good luck!

Yea but you can't use items (which isn't to big because I barely used them) and biggie is no MP restore except at the start on new chapter or some quest.

Understood, but if you are keeping your level you will be able to accumulate items during the start of the hard run won`t you?

I'm not sure what you are asking? You can't use items at all on Hard Mode so not at all worried about accumulating them. Before I do Hard I will get any non hard mode trophies and grind any materia out. 



Sleep and stop helps a ton. You can cast stop on a boss you staggered, and get more free hits. The stagger gauge stops going down when you stop the boss.
