Also starting on easy is a very good idea because you can gain a better understanding of enemy attack patterns and you can learn to sync block better which is unbelievably important for paladin mode. I would also recommend obtaining the light magic final move as soon as possible, it is incredibly powerful and can fully heal you in a matter of seconds which makes it incredibly helpful on paladin mode and boss fights.
Also most of the trials are very possible on paladin mode, making the 3rd clean-up run much shorter.
Very good info, it should go in the guide =)
