I have just begun playing the game for the first time in almost 5 years, and I am following a walkthrough this time, to make sure that I get it right. Hmm, this walkthough I am using keeps talking about the Card Game, and refining monsters into cards, so I have been doing that for the last four hours... But is this really necessary for you to "complete" and upgrade all weapons and stuff like that? I hate the fact that I've just used the last four hours on turning monsters into cards. I can master the game without being a master at the Card Game, right? Because, frankly, I suck at it.
