Rab > Sylvando > Serena > Veronica > spoilers > Jade > Erik (i like them all a lot)

my staple team near the end of the game was Hero, Spoilers, Jade, Serena. Rab was great but damn Serena gets awesome.

Bosses that destroyed me multiple times (hard mode):
Dora in Grey
That ice dragon
Second to last story boss

The last boss was tough too, and I almost ran out of MP which would have killed me, but Serena pulled through with a lucky double crit kafrizz to seal it

amazing game, i don't even know what to rate it

like what is there to complain about? the game ended but i still apparently have a ton of extra things to do, and it looks like it's not just hidden boss fights

Loved this game.

Rotated party members a lot but I almost always had Hero/Jade. Veronica for mob nuking, Erik for boss killing because his single target damage after a bit of setup was nuts.

seems like a lot of people here disliked it, but for me I was feeling unfulfilled after the normal ending and the post-game is what brought me back and pushed it over to my GotY

if i have one complaint so far, it's that i can't easily view how equipment affects my characters while in a shop menu and i have to back out to see everything and compare stats

and those effing crossbow targets

Crossbow targets are tough but fair.

I don't even know what the rewards are, and if they're worth my time at this point

i cleared some areas but i don't know where to collect the prize and didn't bother to look it up lol

pretty sure each zone gives 5 seeds and getting them all gives you a magic hat? been a couple months so i don't remember but i think it's some hat that regens MP or something

oh question

did you guys switch around your weapons for characters?

like I'm pretty sure i kept my layout as:
hero - greatsword
erik - knife (some boomerang early on)
sylv - double sword (some whip)
ronnie - heavy wand
rab - heavy wand
jade - claws
spoilers - axe

the only character i kinda switch around on is serena for wands and occasional spear, but even now she's just my dps mage and regular wands don't really seem to make a difference in healing strength

the game's artwork pushes jade to use a spear but claws with upped crit rate is just so good.

i NEVER used swords for erik, knives for sylv, whips for veronica, or claws for rab lol

what's the accuracy rate? I've just been using critical acclaim recently, and before that I used multihit attacks like sword dance or a hit above

Probably like 50%? If it hits its a kill though, so its way better than doing one or two damage at a time even with higher accuracy.

The plot for the 'post game' (I don't really consider Act 3 a post game really because it has important story elements) does have some issues (mainly the devs forget how their own universes rules work a few times) but I think its still really good, personally.

if you mainline the post-game story it's only like 2-3 hours, but there's enough new side quests and bonus dungeons to make it as long as the other halfs

It's not necessarily a lot of game in Act 3 (there is a decent amount of side stuff though), but it's pretty important to the story.

Question for you (or anyone else who's beaten the game):
Do you know if NPC dialogue for all of the towns updates again when you proceed with the Act 3 story? I'm trying to read it all and I don't know if I need to do a full sweep at the beginning or if I can put it off.

If you do all the side quests and optional bosses it will probably take about 15ish hours

If you mainline the story, as said, probably less than 5.

should i be using the seeds i obtain during this whole thing, or save them for later?

this time travel level regression for everyone but the main character is really weird and kinda cool. the game even remembered exactly what equipment my party had at that specific point of time.

also you guys weren't kidding about the spear on jade. that multi-hit ice spear attack does much more damage on average than pumping up crit rate and hoping for crits with claws.

uh i mean it depends on what your philosophy on using stat-boosting items in RPGs is

if you're a min-maxer and want to carefully plan exactly who needs each stat the most

then sure do that

but i just pop 'em the instant i get them

and yes i liked claws too for their multi-hit attacks but then i realized spear had the same thing so whatever

i mean for looking forward,whatever happens storyline-wise to the builds i had going before.

or did i waste all the seeds I used before the tower?
