@  Fire Blazer : (06 December 2017 - 07:16 PM) if the VA strike helped bring in a bit more diversity, then I suppose that's a good thing, lol
@  kirant : (29 November 2017 - 08:07 PM) What I'm trying to get at is that the variety might have been caused by necessity by developers. As much as I was always a fan, I don't think some certain VAs that I thought had great range (ex - Cherami Leigh, DC Douglas) would have gotten their bigger roles without such a strike.
@  kirant : (29 November 2017 - 08:05 PM) I think it's mostly because of a VA strike. A bunch have agreed to not work with major game creators (until an agreement was reached early November this year). This included some extremely prominent VAs (ex - Jennifer Hale).
@  Fire Blazer : (29 November 2017 - 03:36 PM) I feel like the variety is increasing a little bit though, if only because with voice acting becoming more common and people recognizing voices more, there's a little bit of benefit to getting some different voices, perhaps
@  Fire Blazer : (29 November 2017 - 03:34 PM) lol yeah there are some really prominent VOs that will get a lot of roles, and often times big ones
@  xcrash1998 : (27 November 2017 - 05:59 PM) Oh, ok fine. You can ignore the post
@  xcrash1998 : (27 November 2017 - 05:58 PM) Nope was an error on my end
@  kirant : (26 November 2017 - 10:32 PM) Troy Baker takes an insane number of roles. Him, Matt Mercer, and Laura Bailey all seem to be plastered all over games.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2017 - 07:27 PM) Fire Blazer Yeah you are right. Just depends on how far it goes but then there is the question on what is to far or still ok.
@  Idiot : (26 November 2017 - 05:26 AM) There was a game I recently played where Troy Baker did the voice for like 4 different character. That dude is in everything.
@  Mig64 : (25 November 2017 - 05:57 AM) So I was watching the character intros for Fire Emblem Warriors, and I have to say Gharnef should've been voiced by Troy Baker.

@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:47 PM) and I think it'll stay this way for a bit. do you not like it? any alternatives that don't compromise the benefits of DLC? (e.g. Smash 4 DLC characters; would you rather delay the game for more characters, just so that they aren't released as DLC instead?)
@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:46 PM) and you can see how they do their mobile games, so... yeah, Nintendo was a bit late to do it, but they eventually did join the other big companies with the new way of selling games and such

So now that I've completed my first run on Hard Classic with little intended grinding and various other stupid decisions like never touching the forge ever and never getting the Boots from the DLC I figure I should do another run with some better foresight to prepare myself for the notoriously difficult postgame content. Testimony claims people have done it before DLC overclassing was even available so I am going to do it without 'em too.

 

  • I will be doing the second run on Hard Casual. Because it feels stupid to me to have to deal with permadeath in a postgame dungeon and because Normal Casual is for chumps. I will also be turning animations off the whole way through and shamelessly abuse the hell out of the turnwheel because I already got the proper experience on my first run anyway.
  • I will be focusing on ten units because only that many can go into Thabes Labyrinth anyway. Camus and Faye will be given the free DLC Villager's forks. for extra levels. Camus, along with Atlas, Kliff, and Deen, will go through at least one mercenary loop to make up for my inability to overclass.
  • I saw that bridge next to Rigel Falls on the map before, had a whimsical thought of "lol, wouldn't it be funny if I could cross that?" even though it wasn't connected to the lines, and didn't bother trying on my first run. Turns out I can cross it and that it's great for lategame grinding. Gotta be ready for anything.
  • I will use absolutely no stat fountains at all until after I have recruited Tatiana and Conrad, and I will then have those two hog ALL the stat boosts from them and stat boosting food. I'm playing on casual anyway, they won't be as important as they were on classic.
  • I will look up which sidequests are actually worth doing for rewards.
  • I will use the Boots on Faye because she has Rescue.
  • I will make sure to forge the Rapier, Rhomphaia, Saunion and Beloved Zofia.
  • I will hold the Taurus Star Shard when grinding.
  • I won't recruit anyone I don't need, outside of the characters they force you to have. Valbar can go to hell.

My team will be:

  1. Alm/Hero
  2. Celica/Princess
  3. Tatiana/Saint
  4. Faye/Saint
  5. Silque/Saint
  6. Camus/Gold Knight
  7. Kliff/Gold Knight
  8. Conrad/Gold Knight
  9. Atlas/Gold Knight
  10. Deen/Gold Knight

Because who needs class balance when your team has the best dresses and armors.

 

Items I will need to keep in mind (because people will need them and because Alm/Celica can switch their equipment via the convoy without issue) include...

  • Rapier (Super effective against armored units and cavalry units)
  • Rhomphaia (Combat arts which are super effective against armored/cavalry)
  • Saunion (Range+2, meaning 2-5 range in total)
  • Beloved Zofia (I don't know how good Ragnarok Omega will be for sure but it sounds OP.)
  • Gradivus (1-2 range and Camus' official weapon, in the final dungeon)
  • Blessed Shield (Half damage from terrors)
  • Hexlock Shield (Half damage from magic)
  • Speed Ring (TEN SPEED BOOST, either going to someone with stupidly high strength or Silque)
  • Mage Ring (Range+2)
  • Rusted Ring (Potentially forged into a Mage Ring, can't be savescum'd for it though)

Are you going to be crazy enough to take on the Thabes Labyrinth without paid DLC too?

I might do it at some point in the future. Most of my damage done in the boss battle was via people who had gone through the villager loop (Conrad and Deen), and the characters I overclassed didn't even see that much combat (with the exception of Alm).

 

Granted, I was playing on normal casual, so I don't have much room to talk, but...

So, how balanced is this game?

In terms of cross-class balance, I hear apparently other people like 9 Dread Fighters + Alm or Celica for postgame. Dread Fighters being basically the only anti-mage class in the game.
