Full effort into Götterdämmerung or Hard Playthrough first?

Wonder what’s harder? Beating Pride & Joy and go crazy with Limit off start or play Hard Ch 1 to 17 and get it before FINAL BOSS?

 

Thanks for replies.

 

Just getting the last trophies on normal and then there are only the last 3 bridal left and the hard mode bound trophies. Looking for the easiest was to do them.

Götterdämmerung trivializes a lot of fights, especially non-boss battles are often over the second they start. Grinding your character and materia levels is pretty quickly done at the start of chapter 16 too. If you are going for the platinum, you'll have to beat Pride and Joy anyways, so you might as well do it right away. The only hard thing is the Bahamut fight anyway and even that isn't bad as long as you use Manaward to half the damage taken from his instakill attack. Just run Barrier materias on two characters and it won't be that hard.

 

That all being said, I just got Götterdämmerung today, just after finishing the first 13 chapters without it. Playing on hard definitely makes you learn the battle system properly. I feel like I appreciate it more now, because I didn't really get it going through on easy. You dont have to use Items, Magic or Staggermechanics at all on easy. 

 

Tl;dr If you just want the game to be as easy as it can be, go for Götterdämmerung first. If you wanna be good at the game, do hard mode first.

I read everywhere you need Reprieve for Bahamut and then I read that you only need Barrier. Wow

Reprieve is really nice to have, but there's a few problems with it. 1. It's harder to acquire than Barrier, 2. Reprieve can only save you once, but for an inexperienced player Bahamut will likely be able to pull off two Megaflares during the fight instead of just one and 3. If you don't know how to fight properly yet, you may lose Reprieve before Bahamut does Megaflare. Since it can only be activated once per battle, that would leave you helpless.

I actually started playing Hard from scratch yesterday. 
Up to chapter 12 so far a walk in the park.

It‘s even easier than normal first playthrough so far.

Well now that Pride is down in second try (died once because I ignored Ifrit ...) I feel bad :(.

Maybe doing the VR first would have speed up the game incredibly. 
 

Nah. Nevermind. Thanks for the replies.
