There are 4 difficulties: Beginner, Standard, Veteran, and Extreme. There are also 3 choices of your defeat penalty: Lose experience, Lose items, or the equivalent of ironman mode which is now called Hardcore. I found the hardest difficulty impossible, but then I’m more of a casual player, so you hardcore game grinders can put that to the test.
By the way, instead of leveling up per floor, you level up with a new experience system. I wasn’t sure what to think about it at first but it works. There are some new monsters and a new monster group as well.
I’m giving you guys a heads up… There are only 5 class types. But there are 2 versions of each class, each having shared skills and a few unique skills. When selecting your party you can only use the 2 if you want to use multiple of a class.
