Is the Earth Crystal supposed to negate magic item drops? The Water and Fire Crystals don't, but I noticed that Earth has a different attack animation altogether, so I wasn't sure if it had any special properties. I was going to try it out on the wind boss and it made the fight impossible since there's no way to get any magic to bring it to the ground.
On a related note, I saw a video on YouTube from the Japanese version where someone used the three-earth meteor spell to hit the boss while it was in the air. If I try that, the meteor comes in low underneath the boss, completely missing it. Was that an intentional change when the game was revamped or am I seeing two different spells? (Theirs was actually earth, earth, earth, fire, but even with that combo it comes in low for me.)
Also, my config spontaneously decided to reset overnight. I quit the game last night the same way I always do (Pause -> Return to Title -> Quit Game), but when I started it up this morning, the config had reset to the default keyboard controls. I have the Steam version, but I can't imagine that would make a difference.
