UPDATE #2 (January 2018): I'm still playing this game, but I've kind of hit a plateau. Please see the post below for more details. Thanks! ---------- UPDATE #1 (January 2017): So, I've made it a little further in the story. I was stuck on Chapter 34-4 for a while (there was quite a jump in difficulty after Part I), so I shifted focus to events and adding some more adventurers to my roster. After a while, I found it much easier to make story progress again, but some of the more difficult routes in the Arena events are now giving me trouble. If anybody has any advice to share or just want to take a look at my new adventurers, please feel free to share down below. Thanks again! ---------- I recently finished Part 1 of the story, and I'm now trying to take a more careful look at my squad(s) moving forward from here. My roster has some decent variation now, and I was wondering if people here would be willing to help me out. - What do you think about my current team? - Are there any major gaps that I should be filling in? - Would you suggest that I try to obtain a specific character? Assessments and recommendations are appreciated! Thank you! Current main squad being considered: 1 - Bahl Sword; part of the "trinity". 2 - S'naip Bow; part of the "trinity". I also have Metupí, but I haven't used him much. 3 - Bajanna Spear; new recruit. I'm not sure if I should go with her or Sh'berdan Λ. Sh'berdan is a recode, but only an S class, while Bajanna is an SS class. I'm not really sure how to compare their stats and skills, as they're pretty different. I kind of like Sh'berdan's AOE skills, but Bajanna has Teraspear and some additional utility later on. 4 - Calista Healer; new recruit. I'm not sure if I should be subbing her in for Kuscah. I was curious to see how she would be able to handle keeping the others and herself alive. I'm also considering subbing in Amina instead, to train her up and get ready for recoding. That might be a while off though, even if I have all her jobs unlocked. 5- Bahamut Mage; new recruit. Just got him this morning, and I'm debating between Bahamut and Seiryu. I also have Gegonago, but I haven't really been using him to see if he fits in for anything specific or if he's generally liked by people. Maybe, he's good? I was actually using A'merpact up until ice enemies started to appear and absorb his attacks. What elements should I focus on/avoid after Chapter 32? 6- Gatz Utility; levitation, bomb removal (will this remove my own bombs, if I use Bajanna?), panacea, and treasure hunter! Gatz is pretty much the only one I'm confident will be staying in my squad for a while. Elemental squad (mostly for Pudding Time): 1- Maralme 2- Seiryu 3- Bahamut (maybe I should keep one healer?) 4- A'merpact 5- O'pari 6- Ba'gunar Dragon squad 1- Grace 2- Maralme 3- Seiryu/Bahamut? 4- Amina? (she seems to heal the most out of everyone, even if she doesn't have Heal All) 5- Bahl* 6- S'naip* *Considering substituting Bahl and S'naip in favour of having both Seiryu and Bahamut, and also adding A'merpact.
