Geez so wkc2 just throws you right onto the mix doesn't it? I am so fucking lost! Guess I should Go back play wkc1 again and get a refresher. (I didn't get very far the first time I played it since I hated the combat)
WKC2 has both games so unless you are wanting the trophies from WKC1 just stick with the enchanced WKC1 story on the WKC2 disc. The battle system is much improved and not as sluggish. When you start WKC2 up it will ask if you want to start WKC1 story and everything from scratch, or if you want to start WKC2 part of the story which you start at level 35 with very basic gear. I recommend just starting from scratch and getting use to the quicker battles, the different skills, and play around with them.
