I feel like Iím doing something very wrong and Iím not enjoying the game as a result of it.
Currently Iím at the Cave of Origins, and I just beat the giant chicken, but I feel that half my party is useless. I havenít used any PP yet and here is how Iíve been spreading points:
Leonhardt = Str/Vit, majority in strength
Borgnine = Str/Vit, majority in strength
Ellis = Int
Fyuria = Str/Vit
Zerva = Int
Vira-Lorr = Int
1.) Borgnine and Leonhardt can chop off half an enemyís health each with their power attacks. Fyuria, Zerva, and Vira-Lorr however do hardly anything by comparison when it comes to damage. Fyuria especially just serves to irritate the enemy. I think the problem is I donít understand the skill system, at all. Looking at the wiki, I see that I can convert items into skills which Iím assuming go into the current slots on my characters to replace old skills, (i.e. meteor impact replaces power attack just as Fire 1 in Final Fantasy would replace Fire 2) but the components for these skills are unavailable from what I can tell. Iíve been over-killing as many enemies as I can and I still have none of these components. Are they obtained somewhere else?
2.) Once I craft a skill, can I transfer it? If I decide I donít want to use say, Vira-Lorr anymore, can I remove fire from her and give it to someone else?
3.) I keep hearing about people using generation 1 characters in generation 2 and so on? I know there are books that allow you to make marionettes but I thought this was extremely expensive and only useable on the main characters (1 hero and 3 heroines) of each generation? I would like to spend PP on some minor characters (Borgnine) that Iíd like to use the entire game but if I canít bring them back in later generations I wonít bother.
I'm sorry if these questions are answered elsewhere but I haven't been able to find them so far. I'm not saying they don't exist, but I'm tired of searching. Even pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.
