I’m assuming that means, in Hard Mode you can start with max or high level characters, maxed out materia, and maxed level weapons?
Which means without placing some limitations here and there the difficulty wouldn’t be challenging enough.
I already don’t use MP often and use items rarely. Might need to use the benches for resting more often on Hard. Though Pray and Chakra work well well for HP recovery.
