Hugo - FC, also i have him fury and maxed out his agility so he hits hard and alot at the same time, i chose him to be FC because i favored the way his character grew threwout the storyline over Chris and Geddoe, also
Chris - Chris, i like because to me i see her a versitile, i use her to heal with True Water as well as she hits pretty accurate, her attack is also fairly strong as well as she does not require much movement, also her pheonix rune can hit enimies you cant reach
Juan - Juan, Juan i like because his a attacks are chains, he attacks multiple times and with sunbeam rune, hes also hitting pretty hard for a multiple ammount of times, though he takes damage, he dishes it out as well, i put a sacraficial jizzo on him just in case of a situation
Emily - Emily is like Juan, but she doesnt take as much damage, also she doesnt do as much damage but hits with more attacks than Juan, also her Lion ability is helpful for hitting enemies you cant reach like the runes with the last boss, also i put her in Juan in the same 2 slots so they can perform their team attack and hit everyone at once for a nice ammount of damage as well
Nei - I like Nei because her Jongleur is just plain fun, also she doesnt hit as hard as Juan or Emily, but she hits almost as much, she helps also with healing with a shield rune and her Jongleur can be helpful at times as well.
Sasari - Sasari is one of my favorite characters, having the True Earth rune and also having good Water Magic stat, and also an open runeslot for a palegate rune, makes him very helpful if you need it, his canopy defence helps from True Earth, flowings mother earth and kindness rain also come in handy, and palegate is basically a giant beatstick to slap the person around with when on the offence.
The party might seem odd, or a little on the defencive side, but thats how i wanted it to be, i like watching the enemy attack and end up taking little over 50 when its supposed to be a hard battle then blowing them away. the whole purpose of having so many people who attack so many times normally is because i dont want to waste runes in battles, you never know when youll need something from them and its fun to see your characters hit so many times over.
For the final battle my line up was this:
Hugo lvl 62 everyone else between 57-60
Hugo - True Fire/ Fury Runes
Chris - True Water/Phoenix
Juan - Sunbeam/Waking
Emily - Lion/Haziness (hazieness because i forgot to switch it)
Nei - Shield/Jongleur
Sasari - True Earth/Flowing
ok, first turn, i had Hugo cast Final Flame on the waterrune and Chris hit the lightning rune, Juan and Emily attacked the firerune, and i had Sasari cast canopy defence and Nei attacked the firerune, then the firerune casted Hellfire, which was all fine and dandy by me because of canopy defence. What i didnt expect was for the Wind Dragon to attack right afterwards, so i had some healing to do because he had knocked my health down to about half on everyone, low enough to where next hit i would have died.
Next, I had Hugo cast Final Flame on the waterrune again and Chris attacked the lightning rune again, I had Juan and Emily attack the firerune again Juan killed it and Emily hit the wind dragon, and this time I healed with great blessing from Nei and Sasari attacked the wind dragon. The lightning rune casted the shredding and brought everyones health back down to half again. so once again i had to heal....
Next I had Chris use her Phoenix on the waterrune and Hugo attacked the lightning rune and killed it, Juan and Emily used their team attack to hit all the runes, which killed the waterrune, Sasari used kindness rain again and healed everyone again. Then the earthrune casted canopy defence on the dragon, which made me slightly ticked cause i was gonna kill it with Hellfire then the dragon did an attack, and took everyones health back down to a little less than half this time, nothing that couldnt be taken care of though.
Finally, I had Chris cast Kindness rain directly on Sasari, because there were 3 other people to heal and he was closest to death, Hugo attacked the wind dragon, Sasari never got to heal or be healed because Juan attacked the dragon and killed it. So ends the story of how i beat the game.
