This is my first time playing FFXII, anything I should know? This doesn't really seem like the typical JRPG.

It plays more like an MMO than a traditional Final Fantasy game, but I enjoyed the gameplay. Vaan and Penelo are useless characters, so if you are annoyed or frustrated by them, that's okay. Ashe, Basch, and Balthier are the actual main characters.

Lies. Frans ass is the main character.

no one is useless in zodiac age, because it has a job system that lays out exclusive abilities based on the job each person chooses, so it gives you more impetus to use multiple characters

also there are more jobs than you can assign, so you can't experience it all in one playthrough

I was talking more in terms of plot than gameplay.

I forgot the details, but you get to chose a second class at some point in the current console releases.

I really like XII. I find it fun to turn the gambits off for the character you're controlling to make the battles more engaging.

good game, zodiac age was a major upgrade too

do make sure you have at least one white mage or the game will be more annoying than it has to be, i tried relying on a rdm for healing and it wasn't worth it

there's minmaxing you can do with classes but it really doesn't matter if you have the versions of the game that lets you change classes

Some dude told me that it's better to have everyone around the same level. Is that true, or should I stick to using 3 people like in the other FFs?

LP is way more important than level, so diluting your exp a bit by swapping characters out is worth the extra versatility more party members bring. it'll probably be obnoxious to try to do everything on three characters anyways, ff12 has a lot of specific counters you need to take advantage of that most classes aren't equipped to deal with (flying monsters, elemental weaknesses, going heavy on physical or magical offense, bringing some characters that can off-heal effectively, etc)

very few of your party members will probably share weapons anyways so there's not much competition if you pick varied classes. like i think i ended up with a great dagger early on that made my balthier really good, so i used him more for a while. when others got good weapons by chance, i used them more

Played it on Switch within the last year. Was okay. I actually finished it this time (I never beat the PS2 game because I hated it).

Hope you enjoy it. The x4 speed makes grinds a bit more bearable (like farming for items and crap).

Damn, the opening cutscene is all over the place. A 15 year old dude gets married, then goes off to war without even consumating the marriage, then some super special awesome barrier thing gets taken down because the idiots didn't bother to put guards where the mages were arming it? Then the 15 year old dude dies a virgin because he forgot to consumate his marriage before leaving for war.

Now some dude with a dog's name is woken up? Goddamn, focus game, focus!

If you choose the same job for multiple people, be careful when choosing the quickening licenses. You could lock yourself out of some sections. Alhough, they recently made it you can change your job, so theres that.
