Yeah, the Summoner one is a lot more depressing (although not because of the Summoner herself as she's
personified). But out of the * holders themselves, Valkyrie has so far been the closest to sympathetic.
Continuing in updates, for you monk users, check back on your equipment frequently. You can quickly level up past the best claws available and not realize it, actually nerfing your attack power by not being bare handed. I lost about 20 attack using bastet claws when I realized it and saw a massive boost when I took them off. Friendly warning to anyone who is getting mad at monk, it really kicks ass.
Speaking of kicking ass, omg Ranger. First job I maxed out, and with the support ability precision, I'm landing 4k crits on enemies. It's ungodly. Forget it if it's flying, it roughs out to a 7k hit on crit. Amazing output.
The Beast Killer ability at least helps to justify the Bastet Claws until you hit chapter 2 since beast type enemies are common until then. And yes, the Ranger is basically where your Monk will end up heading once they hit level 9 for effective damage and because I could get the Ranger Job up to level 9 in less time then it would take me to take anybody up from 9 to 10.
No puzzles is kinda sad. Boring layout, drab backrounds....doesn't really scream groundbreaking.
Got my first streetpass hit today. I was all OH SNAP!
To be fair, that replicates the older FFs pretty accurately.
Merchant/Thief is the best thing ever.
Steal stuff from enemies and sell it back to them. Calculator-level hilarity, there.
Too bad you don't actually get the money from them until after you finish the fight. But if you have extra gear lying around and you have nothing better to do in a boss fight then there's no reason to not pawn off your outdated gear for mad money (unless its something useful like the Blessed Shield or the Sage's Staff).
The one thing about Thieves is that Chapter 2 is where you should start swiping from bosses as they carry otherwise expensive accessories like Power Bracers from Valkyrie and Hermes Sandals from Red Dandy. Before then you're far more likely to just come away with weapons that you could've just gotten from the shop 5 minutes down the road (not factoring in talking times).
