Piercing crystal - barrier question


Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm just overlooking something obvious, but is there some way of knowing whether or not a piercing crystal is powerful enough to take down a barrier?

 

I've wasted a few of these crystals trying to dispel blue barriers only to be told that the crystal isn't strong enough. On other occassions, they'll work just fine. Does the "tool use" skill come into play at all with these?

I think Piercing Crystals cast Dispel Barrier at a specific low level that cannot be altered. Because of this, you'll need to learn Dispel Barrier and have a reasonably powerful mage if you want to pass all the barriers.

 

As far as I know, the only way to test barriers is to save and reload.

About how much further until I get the opportunity to learn dispel barrier? In terms of the progress I've made in the game, currently I'm at Patrick Tower.

Ah. I had a hell of time trying to beat that demon (forgot his name) in the Tower of Magi ruins so I gave up for the time being and moved onto other quests.
I'll try it again tonight now that my party is stronger than it was during my last attempt.

...And even if you can find a spellbook with Dispell Barrier, a very powerful spell, there isn't a single book in the game that will teach you Bolt of Fire. A tad annoying.
