Yes, its one of the most nasty effects of using Data Drain. I have yet to see the instant Game Over which I never seen in my life.

Yeah same here. I rarely used Mia to begin with unless the story asked for it really. I was kinda dissappointed that was all i got.

I'd have put the class changer system. It'd make those Limited Rare gears hunting worthwhile. Only the die hard fans of Mia will be happy of that. :D

Yeah. I did. However, because of that last, horrifying, and extremely tedious dungeon, which forces you to spam Data Drain and raise the infection rate at ridiculously high levels, I fell six levels.

@ Tri Edge, Wow, 6, I imagine how fast the infection rate goes up at Lv93. I only lost 1 level in that dungeon. I feel lucky... x_x

Actually it never bothered me until that dungeon. Up until that point my Infection Rate very rarely went about 25%. I never really used DD unless i really had to.

I had gone there due to the Item Completion Event. I had no other way to get the Cadeceus Rod & Angel Axe. This was my first and last trip there. I believe it's the same for everyone. :)

They could still provide another challenge: Clear all 93 dungeon portals.

I know, that's suicide, but if you feel lucky on chest portals and normal monsters, that's pretty much possible.

You won't. Trust me. Luck doesn't lasts for THAT long D8 You'll run into Data Bugs FAR MORE than into normal enemies and treasure chests, simply because of the way the game assigns the amount of each since you enter (it's like a ratio, it's not just "random"...if you ever go to the dungeon, take the shortest route, and "feel lucky" as you run into treasure chests and normal monsters constantly, it's because ALL OTHER ROOMS are infested with the Data Bugs). And well, even if you assume you have the "best" possible luck and do things as carefully and correctly as possible, you'll start getting MAX Infection penalties by B6-B7, and assuming you get one penalty per 4 battles (in truth you'll get one each 2 Data Drains...but, we're assuming insane luck here), you'll get around 10 penalties at least. Yeah, it's VERY possible for none of them to be an Instant Game Over...but have fun leaving the dungeon with -10 levels or all your inventory lost D8
Suicide is actually a far smarter option than this challenge .__. I wouldn't even consider it a "challenge", since the chance of success doesn't depend on you exactly...but on how nice the game is for wanting/not wanting to give you an instant game over, and all you'll do is repeat the same over and over with each enemy while hoping for the best.

...And that isn't even the most "hardcore/insane/suicidal/too-much-hate-for-yourself challenge" you could do in that area. That one challenge would be THIS:
-Clear all Field portals/Defeat all enemies on the Field Area
-Clear all Dungeon portals and rooms
-Solo Kite, don't bring any allies/team members
-Use Drain Heart only

Good luck ._____. lol

I don't think he'll survive this. Drain heart will skyrocket the infection rate and plus, Data Drain would be best, but clearing more than 100+ portals with data bugs and to get some with chests & with normal enemies. That is giving yourself a game over even before its started. :p

P.S Luck can last long, but I wonder if the game will 100% crush it after a certain time while having 100% Infection.

My first play through of the games, I finally got to Corbenik after getting all those god-forsaken virus cores..........
And I could not for the life of me beat him.
So I deleted all my game files and started fresh from the beginning and 100% completed EVERY DUNGEON I EVER WENT TO... I was 99 well before Corbenik and beat his ass with ease.
Stories aren’t always guaranteed a happily-ever-after.

I almost gave up for that secret epilogue dungeon when most of the monsters are Data Bugs =_="
You have to be lucky to beat it!
