Hey does anyone know how many unique skills I can equip per character in Breath of Fire 4? I don't want to max my list and screw myself out of the ability to learn more so I'm only keeping 4 or 5 on each character to be safe but I know the limit stated at the beginning was higher....
Already tried doing a search for the info and realized pretty quick I was gonna run into spoilers so I WILL NOT check boards/faqs for this info.
Thanks a bunch (ahead of time) for anyone who digs up the info for me!
I've seen no mention of any skill limit in this game, so I suspect that you are good to go (unless it works like in BoF3 and you can only ever have one copy of any given skill learned).
I figured it out. There is a limit, and the limit is 9 skills. Additionally, you are correct about the "one copy" so far as I could tell. Unless I am completely missing something, you only get one of each added to the list of skills available to equip to characters.
Just discovered last night I could learn skills with Fou (during his segments) that are available to Ryu once the game switches you back to your main party. I don't know if you are supposed to do this or not but gee golly did I end up with 2 pretty powerful skills (Ebonfire and Blitz).
While I'm talking BoFIV I would like to throw out some random thoughts.
-I LOVE the Fou man! Great character thus far. Unless they completely botch it, the way they have written him in up to the 20 hour mark for me has made him very sympathetic while still being damn near "Sephiroth-type" of cool and badass.
-I caught a "beat all" line come out of Cray last night. Cray is NOT Rei. Cray will never be Rei. There be only one feline in the BoF universe who can and should ever say "beat all" effectively, though I take it more as the writers clever reference to Rei's use of the verbage than anything else.
-There is an "hdmi black" setting on my TV that, once turned off, drastically improves the visual quality of PS1 games it seems..... I wish I discovered this earler.
-Lastly, who signed off on these dragons!!!??? Dragons huh...Really...????? The text says dragon, the sprites/dragon models say something completely different if you ask me. They should have run strictly with the term "Endless" IMO. The narrative DOES make appropriate their visual distinction from typical Dragons but the term proves jarring to me none-the-less.
In other news, I got an itch to pop Dragon's Crown back in (haven't played it since release at which point I beat "normal" mode with an elf) and start a Wizard. Man, he is much harder to use than my Elf was... that is all I have to say about that.
