It's actually not bad now that I have a good understanding of the linking and initiative systems. That makes an enormous difference in the enjoyment of the game. It's still tedious, though.
The only reason I was trying so hard to knock out Gomorrah is because I wasn't sure if he'd be accessible later or if the ability to beat him is limited to that point of the game. I ended up just creating a 2nd save after bypassing him. Hopefully once I get more characters and level up more I can go back and squish him like a bug.
You can fight the king of the undead anytime after you visit him in the story. So you can wait till reaching the final stages then get the gear at Gomorrah
