I'm confused about medicine rune

Postby gildedtalon » Thu Apr 01, 2010 4:45 am

Does it waste the bearer's turn if they use medicine? What will happen if you don't have any medicine in your inventory?

equip a medicine or mega medicine in you character's accessory slot along with the run in question on your hand. When your character takes dmg, he will automatically use the item, free of your command. Hope this is specific enough.

Does it waste the bearer's turn? You fail, we can not equip medicine on our accessory slot

He kinda said that. And yes, you can equip Mega Medicines in those slots.

guys keep in mind we're talking about Suikoden IV which uses a shared bag. this game's Item command pulls from the common bag that stores up to 99 of each item.

You could always try to google it or check it for yourself.

considering how useless the rune sounds and how small the suikoden community is (with even less who played and explored this game's mechanics), i'm sure very few people have ever equipped it, less have seen it activate, and likely nobody has actually bothered to figure out all the rules behind it. you could be the first if you feel like testing, gildedtalon!

I've used it occasionally. The SIV version is much better than the SII version as it does not take you character's turn. The bearer just tosses a Medicine or Mega Medicine at someone when they go into critical HP stage and their turn goes off as normal.

How does the game choose Medicine or Mega Medicine?
Which one has the higher priority?
