I started the game and am having a LOT of trouble on NORMAL (can't make myself try Easy).

I have a cleric with air/earth and a rogue.

Even with Jahan and Madora in my party I can't seem to get past the 10 undead in front of the cave to Evelyn's Lab...

My fight usually starts with a rain spell at a choke point, then lightening when someone steps in it. I use my rogue from stealth etc, etc....

It just seems like I can't do enough damage/combos to really do anything.

The forum says that hybrid characters are weak... but I find it hard to believe the designers would just leave a huge gap in gameplay like that.
