Is it just me or is the encounter rate insane in FFI? I'm playing the "Origins" version right now and sometimes I only get to take one or two steps (literally) and then BAM another fight.

It's making the game slow! :D

It speeds up the levelling.

Everything is harder in the Origins version iirc. You're just going to have to put a positive spin on it, like Cyric said :p

I thought you could "avoid" random encounters by going into the menu and using a potion every so often, but maybe that was only on the NES version.

Also, you can't get in random encounter while on floor tiles that cause damage like ice spikes or lava, and they only take 1 damage per step. They save time even though you have to heal afterward.
