by the way, i believe each squirrel has a different "earliest" recruit time. after each major plot point, i've gotten a squirrel instantly, and waiting for the next squirrel produces no results... finishing the next major plot instantly got me the next squirrel.
I got Makumaku as I stepped out of Greenhill. i think it was the school event but could be wrong. waited for hours (left the game on -_-) for Mikumiku, gave up.
After finishing the Tinto/Neclord events or liberating Greenhill, i walked towards the large tree in the path and instantly got Mikumiku.
-Has anyone gotten all 4 squirrels with HQ level 2 very early in the game?
I just checked on this. I got them all right before the Luca fight. However, I cannot comment on how long it took. Since I'm playing on an emulator, I set the frame-rate to about 350 fps (almost 6x speed) and left in on and came back to check on in every half-hour or so. It took several hours. (Probably 20 hours of simulated game-time.), but I found all of them.
However, I don't know if your observation is entirely false. It might have something to do with the number of starts. Since I had everyone that could possibly be recruited at that point (which is like 75%), I was able to find them.
Because, isn't the level two castle requisite having finished Two-River and NOT the number of stars? I mean I can't say for sure because I've always had the highest possible number of starts after I finish it, but even if it didn't, does it the castle still become level two?
