Pretty sure I already have the friend codes of most people here... but, just in case, does anyone know if they have Ditto in their friend safari? Hoping to find a Ditto safari for breeding purposes.
I have a Normal safari.

Unfortunately, I lack Ditto. And I heard people with Ditto in their Safari have their FC List full.

Alright I'm in need of assistance because I'm getting pissed off at this game. Does anyone know how long the side quest to get the Vampire asterisk lasts? I get one shotted by all of the dragons to my entire party and I'm level 60. Not in the mood to grind out for hours when the story finally did something. I tried to progress the story and they said there is no going back after this point so I cancelled that and am in a bind. I don't want to miss out on the vampire asterisk, but if it is available later I would like to progress the story.

The Six Dragons have a very distinct pattern and only use physical based attacks. The Ninja's Utsusemi/Transience combo will get you through all six of them entirely on its own, but the Templar's Rampart, Spiritmaster's Spirit Ward, Swordmaster's Nothing Ventured, and some of the Salve-Maker's Compounding abilities will make your life much easier in the long run.

You "can" put it off until Chapter 5 or later, but I'd rather recommend doing it post-haste since enemy mobs the world over will change up starting with Chapter 5.
It's a little harder to get all Genome abilities after Chapter 5 in the Bonus Dungeon.

I wish I could use those abilities earlier. Probably in a NG+ file.

I just realized that Ringabel is Professor Layton. I think.

Now I can't unhear it and it's hilarious.
They sound very close, but Spike Spencer doesn't voice Layton, according to my sources. He's voiced by Christopher Robin Miller.

Today's Tiki's millennial birthday!

She got a Miniature Lance.

Konami Code (Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A) apparently works to see the Brave Second teaser.

View at your own risk (depending on how spoiler-phobic you are..and if you're just THAT curious you can't wait till the end of the game)
Where do you even input this?
51  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 23, 2014, 02:41:09 PM
No, it's not explained. However, I can think a reason why.

Code:
Ringabel's first team most likely found out about her true intentions ahead of time, so she had to try to kill them all. Unfortunately, Ringabel managed to survive at the cost of losing his memory through implied trauma of Edea's death. Because he couldn't remember a thing and Airy had to keep the facade up, she didn't bother with him in the next world.
Code:
I know that sort of "has" to be the answer, but it makes me wonder since my party is flat out told that Airy is the evil at chapter 6 or something and Airy doesn't bother killing us then. So does that mean the party from world 6 was more intelligent than my party and actually realized that that was the truth? I mean my party being stupid is pretty much par for the course considering that they are basically told Airy betrays them in Chapter 4 during the Vampire side quest and they do not even suspect a thing (yes I know side quest, but then why spell it out there?). Actually I'm now remembering some other "issues" with the game.

-I feel like the game implies that there was something unusual about the rise of Crystalism since people used to just leave the crystals alone.....but it never really addresses this. It just hints at it and then drops it.

-The Angel existing in so many worlds. How many times did Airy fubar up by letting Agnes escape to the past of a different world? Better question might actually be how the fudge did past universe Agnes' manage to pull that off in the first place? Did Airy just throw Agnes into the void everytime she killed her a few millennium ago only to realize that she made a boo-boo when she started to encounter worlds where anti-crystallism was a thing resulting in her just killing Agnes from then on? If so why did Agnes manage to end up a few thousand worlds ahead of Airy?
I'll have to break up those assumptions one by one.

Code:
The main story does heavily imply that Airy is the Evil One. However, because Agnes finds the theory unacceptable and that her obligations as a vestal keep clashing, they won't go through it unless you force her to destroy a crystal.

The people simply made a religion of evil out of the crystals and then it got out of hand when they did some questionable moves.

It's really left unclear about the angel Agnes. DeRosso and Yulyana found her in the past a long time ago. It's possible that the angel was the first Agnes to take the blow from the huge line of Agnes that exist in every other world.

Oh, Sakaguchi. You made Final Fantasy so good till you went solo and your reputation took a huge hit in the kiwis.

Just beat the game a little bit ago....."normal" ending is better than "true" ending. So overall impressions.....the game was alright. I still don't get what all the hype was about. I loved the overall plot. However I thought it was executed poorly. The first half of the game the dialogue makes me cringe and I never really came to care about the characters. During the second half, I stopped cringing about the dialogue (although I dunno if that is because it got better or because I just stopped expecting anything). However that was also the time that the plot gets thin and the quests get stale. Had they cut a condensed a couple of the second half of chapters together then it would have helped a lot (not like anything important happened in chapter 5 or the last chapter). Then just the ending....better bring out the code block.

Code:
I have no problem with Oubor....fudge I am not trying to spell that out repeatedly. So I shall call him snake guy. I have no problem with snake guy just suddenly entering the storyline. That didn't bother me. What bugged me was just about everything else. If I was reading what was said correctly I was supposed to be the Celestial possessing Tiz, so basically a Baten Kaitos set up that was only hinted at one time prior. And therefore the Celestial Realm is our world. It really bugged me that they therefore described our world as not knowing war or strife. I sort of get what they were going for, but it doesn't work on multiple levels and instead comes off as the developers being ignorant. And then we get to the battles with snake guy. Five freaking rounds or so where you get booted out and have to reset up your buffs etc with no healing in between. I was fine as I was using some "cheap" tactics as I was just trying to get through the game (although one of my characters was getting close to running low on MP), but I can see that getting so frustrating if you were trying to fight it normally. Anyways moving on from gameplay...

The whole cutting over to other worlds thing was so freaking cheesy. I was basically face palming the entire time. I...ugh. And, wait a sec. My brain just made a connection.....OH MY FUCKING GOD! That sequence doesn't even make sense. The worlds that you see are supposed to be the worlds that Airy connected, but she killed off the Warriors of Light that she used and Ringabel is in all of those worlds? I call freaking BS. BS! And that nonsensical bit just made me forget if there was anything else to really complain about. Oh right Tiz collapsing. Very random. I can sort of get what the intent there is supposed to be, but it made me think of Persona 3 only minus the themes which almost made it work in Persona 3 (thought it really didn't work in Persona 3). I suppose ironically I thought Persona 3's hero was just sleeping until playing The Answer and that Tiz died until the I saw the bonus movie. And I think that ends my rant.

Side note: Is it every explained why Airy betrayed the team in Ringabel's world? I mean she didn't bother with killing off my party and we went through five worlds, so it wasn't that she was just done with them as she could have kept using them like she did us.

No, it's not explained. However, I can think a reason why.

Code:
Ringabel's first team most likely found out about her true intentions ahead of time, so she had to try to kill them all. Unfortunately, Ringabel managed to survive at the cost of losing his memory through implied trauma of Edea's death. Because he couldn't remember a thing and Airy had to keep the facade up, she didn't bother with him in the next world.

Today's Brady's birthday!

Fittingly, he got a Katarina's Bolt.
55  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 20, 2014, 10:35:00 AM
W00t, I beat the game! I wasted waaaay too much time playing it for extended periods of time, but it was worth it.

I think I'll go back at it and fill out the missing entries on the journal...and read the journal. It's got interesting bits for many other characters.

EDIT: This journal is actually pretty nice. It's got humor mixed in for when you read

Code:
Alternis's Journal.
56  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 19, 2014, 08:50:38 PM
I got all the way to the final part of the game, but I went ahead and decided to face off with the Bonus Boss first.

...And as of this writing, after many 9999 damage hits, it's still standing.

EDIT: Ringabel died with grace, but I managed to defeat the bastard. WHO'S YOUR GOD NOW?!
57  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 19, 2014, 04:35:10 PM
So far really loving the game.  Still not fully acquainted with some of the online stuff but im acclimating as best I can.  If you want my FC just pm me yours and we shall do the exchange fc dance, I like to be somewhat private and such.  Also I am sort of just mixing random classes I think might work together, getting them to 5 or 6, then switching to another.  No idea if thats a good idea or not but im impatient and want to learn stuff quickly :P
The main attraction of this game is combining classes, abilities, and sub-abilities to find your desired selection.

The possibilities are, how you say, endless (to a point).
58  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 18, 2014, 08:21:36 PM
I definitely like when a game doesn't seem to have a focal character.  They all operate in some was as "main character"
Like FFVI?
59  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 18, 2014, 04:35:17 PM
I think everyone's VAs were good except for Agnes. It's a mixed bag for me about Erin Fitzgerald voicing Agnes (she voiced Midori in SMT: Devil Survivor and Ion/Sync in Tales of the Abyss). If she could keep her calm tone more than her very, uh, high-pitched tone, I'd like her.

It got especially cringe-worthy at a particular scene where she screams like hell...and I see her HP bar after to see she was damn fine.

Okay, time for me to take decisions here. I finally got to see what the deal is with Ringabel's memory loss. For those who might have already finished the game, answer this question without spoiling me too much...

Code:
Airy's wing counter is at 1 right now. If I awaken the crystals one more time, does this lead to a bad ending or one more loop to clear?

Not really a spoiler
Code:
There is no bad ending. Only Normal and True Ending. Just keep doing what you are doing to get the true ending.
So...which one is it?

Code:
Does destroying a crystal lead to the True Ending or not?

If we tell you, it will ruin the surprise. Just know that one of the ways will put you back to where you made the choice to do it after you finish up.
Oh well, then. I'll just copy my main game file and see where this takes me.
