One "Man" Army.

If you could field a force of 12 of any one character...

One "Man" Army.

Postby Kaihaku » Wed Jun 15 2011 8:00pm

How would the 'standard' diverse Shining Force fare compared to a Shining Force of 12 of the same unit? Imagine fielding 12 Maxes, 12 Bleus, or 12 Anris. Think of it a bit like those old "all white mage" or "all fighter" challenges from the original The Forbidden Series.

Which units would make for an unstoppable force? Who would you choice?

Personally... I'd love to try a Force of all Domingos or all Gongs. :shifty: Domingo because he's ridiculously useful and Gong because he can do everything decently.

An army of 12 Lyles would be nice because all of them can get their best weapon unlike many other weapon using classes and you got a good range which means they can easily gang up on Bosses and you don't need to pay attention to MP.

In SF I it's a bit more overpowered because almost every normal enemy can be killed with Blaze/Freeze 4 or Bolt 3 which is not possible in SF II and in SF CD the mages are pathetic because they learn their level 4 spells far too late and their level 3 spells are to weak due to the enemies having more HP.

Edit: Blaze and Freeze are also cheaper (MP wise) in SF I

If you could have the best weapon 12 times I would take 12 Balbaroys with 12 Chaosbreakers.

Freaking Range with unlimited Freeze 3 and good melee damage = Awesome.

But unlike Balbaroy those Bleus can neither equip nor use those Chaosbreaker which would then be useless.

Wow. That would be epic. Can't think of anything that would top that.

12 Adam's would be quite good - lots of HP, and great defence and attack. Would have to equip a few mobility rings though.

Therefore, 12 Max's with 12 Chaos Breakers would be even better.

To be honest, it might be easier to say who wouldn't be great with 12 of them in a force
