Can Geddoe Recruit Arthur?

Postby knight85 » Sat Oct 01, 2016 5:41 pm

title says it all

I'm trying to make sure that all 3 characters have a support character with treasure hunt.

Hugo can get either guilame plus kidd or elliot or arthur

chris could get kidd or elliot

and geddoe to my knowledge can get kidd

my question is. can geddoe get back into the middle of brass castle at any point after his first chapter?

if not then geddoe will get kidd, and chris will get elliot or arthur (if she can go back to brass in chapter 3)

Geddoe can recruit Arthur at Chapter 3
Hugo can recruit Arthur at Chapter 3
Chris can only recruit Arthur starting from Chapter 4. The guide in this site hasn't been updated with the correct information

got it thanks.

i'll get kidd with chris then and leave elliot and guilame for hugo

now i just need to make some decisions for chris and hugo

namely who is going to get belle and the performers.

altho i'm leaning towards giving hugo the performers AND the saint loa knights since chris gets the ninja, mel and the 2 mages in alma kinan. i'm also going to give chris emily since hugo already has a heavy hitter.

in chris's next chapter i'm planning on doing a test spin with the performers and the gadget users to see how they handle before i decide for certain what i'm going to do.

i do however have one last question. it's about the 5 dogs.

i'm planning on recruiting the star of destiny dog with thomas.

do i have to use thomas to get the rest of the dogs? or could i get one with chris from the northern cavern and one with hugo from the great hollow?

You first need to recruit Koroku to be able to recruit the other dogs.

If you're going to recruit Koroku with Thomas, be careful. Either take the time to level him up, or recruit a lot of other fighting characters. If you get Koroku as one of the army units in Thomas 2nd chapter it will make the military battle very VERY hard.

I was wrong about the dogs.
You need to get to chapter 4 before you can recruit the other dogs

yeah i noticed that myself when i went to recruit the one in the northern cavern with chris last nite

and now i have a bit of a dilema. i want to have an extra sword in my party when i go to the fight at the great hollow. and unfortunately i didnt put the hex doll s that geddoe has into the statue room (i was saving billy and the saint loa knights for hugo).

but i also dont want to get the performer trio or belle and gadget z chris (i'm saving them for hugo too)

lol i seem to be saving a lot of characters for hugo. but at the same time chris has access to useful characters too. its just that her options before going to iksay are limited. plus the fact that chris can go to alma kinan and get 2 mages there. whereas hugo needs magic support from shabbon.

the only real option i can think of is to try for a hex doll s in the horse races and see about recruiting the saint loa knights with chris and do a bit of development.

i was able to get billy and then melville and elliot.

and while i was grinding i had an epiphany.

if i could take hugo into zexen BEFORE i go to chisha village in his 3rd chapter and get the performers (asked on here before and there's a way to do it without alerting mua and halec) then i wouldnt need belle and gadget z for hugo. so i could let chris get them.

i'm gonna test it with hugo when i get that far and then i can alter my plan as needed

Yep, you can avoid Mua and Hallec easily when you're on the same screen

Oh man I wish I'd known those two were avoidable.
Lucky for me I have started over playing through Geddoe's 3 chapters first so I can recruit all the shopkeepers for Budehuc and get the Copper Hammer, I think, for raising everyone's weapons to 12.
I enjoy playing with Thomas and getting his people leveled up so I can thrash the Zexens when they show up. I may lose out on having him recruit the shopkeepers this way but I think having the beefed up weapons will be more useful.

geddoe cant get ALL the shopkeepers. you'd miss the item shop guy in Iksay village

plus the fact that i spread out the shop keepers so that geddoe and chris both have a character with the rune sage skill

however aside from edge i never recruit any battle characters with geddoe. and if i could get to to le bique with anybody else i would just leave edge for hugo

i do believe the information on when each character can recruit Arthur is correct (Hugo 3, Chris 2, Geddoe 3), but of course it's hard to easily prove it unless we have written evidence in another thread somewhere.... but if you are playing, i believe there are times when both Chris and Geddoe can walk through Brass Castle again, meaning they would have access to Arthur.
