Pick my team

Postby Assassins » Fri Apr 15 2016 8:14pm

I am going to do a playthrough on the genesis collection for the 360. No hacks and no real grinding. So lets pick the eleven people to help max kill dark dragon.

Gong
Hans
Arthur
Balbaroy
Amon
Diane
Jogurt
Bleu
Adam
Hanzou

Level 10 promote. Wanted to avoid ranged attackers and healers but there's only so many melee fighters that aren't awesome.

Jogurt is probably going to be dead moat of the time in that game.

In a no grinding playthrough you should avoid: Arthur, Amon, Lyle, Bleu, Alef and Adam. Unless you're doing it for the challenge, as they will be weak and hard to level up.

Also, you should promote them at level 10 or close. Otherwise, they would be underleveled by the end of the game.

I chose the 11 based on that. Think that would be a balanced party and probably as strong as you can find giving the circumstances.

I'm not planning on doing a challenge run, i am just finding myself always using the same team. If I use suggested teams and limit myself to those teams it might help me get a different experience

I'm going with Lobo's team, but replacing Hanzou and Musashi with both birdfolk. Hanzou and Musashi usually make myfinal team normally so trying it with the birdfolk will change it up

So,

Ken - ew, high hp will help though
Tao - nice, she is going to be great
Lowe - ew, but better than Gong
Gort - hell yes, one of my favorite characters
Khris - nice, her healing is going to come in handy and eventually she can tank
Diane - ew, but at least you're going to get a ranged user
Zylo - nice, he's going to be one of your best members
Pelle - nice, he's going to be one of the best as well
Domingo - nice, it's going to be a bit difficult to keep him relevant, but I bet you can do it
Amon - very nice, the birdfolk are greatly underappreciated, give her the doom blade (instant ko) or katana and watch her slay, give Max whatever weapon she doesn't take
Balbaroy - hell yes, my favorite character in the game, give him the chaos breaker and watch him become death

Pretty good team actually. I'm sure you will have fun.

So to begin, it turns out the RNG really hates me. Second battle in and the only person getting good levels is Luke, who is not even on my final team. Everyone is just getting HP, except Tao who juat got MP and Hans, who like in every game I seem to play, just gets useless.agility. I think Hans ever only gains 1 point of attack until level 10 ever. So glad he isn't on my final team.

I think we can all agree that Hans is the worst.

So Some decent level ups.from Ken and Gort on the road to Alterone, and Max gets killed when enies snake through holes in my defenses and double attacks. So I get to fight the battle again.

And the worst part about Hans is he starts out in a three way tie for best Attack and is useful in the first two battles

Max loves to receive double heavy hits. It's, like, his favorite thing.

Liberated Alterone and Mae decided she wanted to get a 4 point defense hike. Gonna be hard to part with her but I am keeping her until I get Pelle.

Khris gets two kills and I don't even have to set them up all that much. She even finishes the battle.

Luke's level is really high but I can't use him as a tank because he stopped.getting defense. Gort, however ia bulky as ever.

Ken is king of the double attack and kills off several unots I was trying to save for other people.
