True, she's good with items... too bad I suffer from a weird mental trauma that makes me never want to use items in any RPG.
I think that's the reason why I never end up getting any of the Atelier games.

Ever tried Teepo Copter? Jude wouldn't give me any time to cast decent spells, so I Teepo Coptered my way to victory. Very amusing.

Pow Hammer stun rate is crazy high, 2-3 Pow Hammer is pretty much a guaranteed stun even against bosses.
Then you have way enough time to throw your strongest spell.

Another thing about Elize is her Pinky quest staff. It's way stronger than even her (sealed) Demon Arm.

On the flip side there's Leia whose final equipment is pretty bad, her offense is so-so, her defense is bad and she's just an 'off'-healer.
Her link special is only good as long as you want to steal stuff. After you've maxed the shop levels, I really don't see why you'd want her in the team anymore. Her only saving grace is that she has a resurrection spell... but then again, Elize has an auto-rez spell so you shouldn't even need it.

Yeah, she's actually the never-before-seen mage character that's 'ok' to hit the coliseum with.

After Jude which I played through the whole game, Elize was the second easiest in the arena.
She's bulky, she has pretty good HP for a mage, she has useful combat artes, 2 great offensive spells and 1 of them can insta-death at really good odds with Teepo ON.
I didn't even need to heal myself while playing the healer =/

Now that I've finished the game, I've been looking into which of the character is the most broken (a Tales tradition after all)

Elise wins as she cannot be killed.

The only thing that can go through your guard are some weird arts (like Soaring Vortex) or Mystic Arts which you will laugh at because most of them are elemental and they'll be mostly or fully negated by your 100 resistance to every element. While you are blocking, you reflect damage and toss Pow Hammers and recover HP.



Melee Gamble
Decreases damage received while guarding to 1
Doubles damage received if not guarding

Survive
Prevents being knocked out while guarding

Impregnable Guard
Guard cannot be broken

Pow Hammer
10% chance to strike with a Pow Hammer upon receiving damage

Reflective Guard
Reflects 20% of damage received while guarding

Heal Guard
Recovers HP gradually while guarding

Auto Medicine
15% chance to recover HP upon receiving damage

Recall
40% chance to automatically revive after being knocked out (once per battle)

Angel's Cry
100% chance to automatically revive after being knocked out (once per battle)

It's pointless.

Well... coming from WoW I can say 2 things.

#1 Blizzard's minimum requirement for gear was realistic and easy to achieve to anyone who puts a minimal effort in gearing up. It made sure you couldn't queue in dungeons where you would have been seriously under-geared.

#2 Players destroyed any use of this by either equiping items which did nothing for their class but were high item level (I have pug way too often with people in PVP sets...) and then also took it too far by requesting that others have ilvl so high they compensate for any personal skill.

Gear check isn't bad in itself. The reaction to it in WoW is what was terrible.
Sadly, I assume players will have the same reaction in FF14 unless they find a way to fix the system.

Well, there's also stuff that I know but I find way too meta.
I could ask which song from a j-pop artist was included in the game, but then that's not really about the game anymore.

A: Tobikata Wo Wasureta Chiisana Tori (The Small Bird That Forgot How To Fly)
Plays at the very beginning and on the ending credits

I worked on this a good bit and I've got 10 questions.
I just don't like half of them.

Also trying to find how I could do a visual and audio question.
The music of SO3 is pretty well known because of the OSTs... or is it just me?

Grandmaster arena challenge with slow ass Alvin VS super quick Jude was an exercise of frustration...
Alvin should have had something like Glory (ToV) as long as you have max Charge (instead of guaranteed crits).

Finally finished Xillia.
I can see why everyone says it ends abruptly.

The last dungeon really comes out of nowhere and takes like 10 minutes without the cutscenes =/

Specifically, it seems like games that use touch features a lot simple won't work.

R3 and L3 bring up a finger.
It works for games where you can slowly pick a location (VLR) but not at all for anything fast paced.

I always thought Tri-Aces wanted to make a Phantasy Star game.

I bet they can't wait to have the player crash on a underdeveloped planet and remove all sci-fi in the first 10 minutes.

... and replace it with creepy lolis.

Wow, I want that little Vita/PSP box.

Then I'd get to play Ogre Battle and VLR.

Tabata wants (Co-Director) Final Fantasy XV to be the highest-acclaimed, highest-profitable FF ever! -- NeoGAF

"Square Enix uploaded their annual report today, and it contains a section called "Creator's Voice". "

Oh great... now they'll expect 8,000,000 units and plan the budget accordingly =/
