Ok, help me here. I want to finally play V but I haven't played since the demo because I got burnt out of RPGs, the problem is that I like most classes so is really hard to decide on a team.

So far I'm considering Pugilist/Dragoon/Necromancer, but Fencer, Harbinger, Warlock, Masurao and Herbalist are also really cute with the color palettes I chose. I really want to keep a healer but I'm not sure if Dragoon's bunkers shoukd be good, then there's the fact that D and N would be sharing pet slots. I'm completely undecided. What were the teams you used during your playthroughs?

I finally made it to the 20th floor this week in EO1 DS, and I was not expecting how many FOEs there would be. It's even worse that some or all aggro when you fight them. Wasn't too happy with the story railroading you into mass genocide of possibly neutral/innocent sub-humans but I'm hoping there is a twist that'll make it worth it. Last note:

Think you can speedrun floor
go straight to Black FOE
Beat it before any other FOE shows up
It respawns immediately while you're surrounded by FOEs

Also, why have weapon/armor prices shot up from 4k to 50k.

Mason Sanders
Mason Sanders

Yes that boss is hard but it's not as bad as the boss of the third stratum in EO2U.
To defeat it, I grinded two levels to be level 50 and I made most of my party members equip rings that make them resist sleep. He can inflict other ailments but sleep was the most common with it's cry attack.

You have to kill every single one of those FOEs to stop the boss from respawning
The worst part is that if you keep going back to the inn to heal you'll pass too much time and the FOEs will start respawning, so you have to use the fountain in the dungeon instead
I'm hoping there is a twist that'll make it worth it
There's a twist alright

Necro wants the 3 summon slot to be optimal. But you can play Dragoon without bunkers, in fact cannon dragoon is better than bunker dragoon.
But don't worry too much, most party composition are viable to use in the main game so pick what you want and reclass/replace latter if necessary.

The team I used in my playthrough is: Fencer/Pugilist, Warlock/Herbalist/Necromancer. Also my warlock is a shaman reclassed because I prefered the brouni portrait.

I can agree as the game at least gives you an indicator how likely you'll encounter an enemy after a certain amount of steps, makes having to navigate around FOEs more dangerous and require the player to think more, and makes field skills more useful if there weren't random encounters.

There's a bunch that have it set to auto on default, but like you said, it's basically minimaps that you can pull out every two seconds if you choose to instead of automapping. Not all of them have the option to manually do it but a fair number do.
It's essentially the same shit as you described, so EO would just be another game like all the other handheld DRPGs not on DS/3DS.

EO's encounters are not even random, you have an indicator that shows you if you're entering into a battle soon, and the encounter rate also changes depending on the areas you explore. That helps a lot so you can manage your walking distance, when to heal or if you're safe enough to reach the stairs instead of using a thread.

You still get a randomly generated encounter every X amount of steps. Its not even remotely similar to what I'm describing.

It needs to be modernized along with moving away from first person view so we can see the characters in battle and above all else, there has to be more empathization on the girls. Nothing against the guys, they can stay but most people pick the girls so I would like, if they still continue story character parties, for them to be at least mainly girls and only 1 or 2 guys and for us to get some romance scenes and an affection gauge, nothing too lewd just on the level of the recent fire emblem games should be enough

Bentley Ward

Really? I found the Landsknetch to really fall off after the 2nd dungeon and become pretty mediocre. You have better damage dealers like Bushi, Runemasters, Imperials, and possibly Nightseekers, and Nightseeker can do the link job better due to being the fastest class and not having to rely on vanguard as much.

The hell are you talking about. What's so autistic about planning beforehand? You prepare yourself both before entering the labyrinth and before a "random" encounter all the time, you know the monsters are really strong so you have to take all the precautions before other unlucky losers ended as rat or bird food. You're constantly taking risks when you decide not to heal after a battle and probably ending on a back attack, or trying to reach the stairs to the next floor instead of using a thread to go back to town. Have you even played the games?

I want another game, but I think V being what it was shows that perhaps the creative drive behind the games is stagnating a little The drop off in events and build up after 3rd stratum shows. It's a solid game, but its quite a shame.

I have no doubt improved hardware means they would be able to build on certain mechanics or improve one aspect or another to bypass 3ds limitations, but I'm not really sure what they could do aside prettier graphics if it means sacrificing mapping possibly.

I understand with rune guidance and with bosses, it's just that they're so mediocre in enemy encounters which are the majority of the fights you'll see and due to that they'll likely fall off behind in exp if you're using more than 5 people in a playthrough. Imperials, Bushi, Runemasters, Arcanist and Nightseekers dish out damage in enemy encounters more reliably due to not having expend a turn at first and require some help from your other guys. Improved link should have been a passive/support hybrid imo.

By experience, link team works perfectly against random encounters too. My team back then was Landshneckt-Dancer-Fortress / Runemaster-Arcanist and they pulled through all the way to Warped Savior with ease. 6th stratum was a cakewalk with how well balanced and strong the team was at that point.

Because you are barely playing the game once you enter the dungeon. As long as you know rotations and make the necessary preparations you can pretty much put your brain on autopilot.

It'd be a literal Wizardry clone on the Switch. You need the touch screen to actively be mapping for it to be EO, otherwise it's just a first person dungoen crawler.

Why not use it?

EO was created specifically to allow you to draw maps in-game rather than using paper and pencil
No user, the touch screen mapping was to justify being on the abortion that was nintendo's hardware. It is a step down from using grid paper. It is not advantageous to use that touch screen for mapping unless you are a 8 year old kid sitting in the back of mommy's car on a road trip. Grid paper is superior in every way.

You could say the same about playing dungeon crawlers in the first place instead of tabletop

How is grid paper supposed to tell me where I am in the map and where FOEs are?

There is a significant difference between a piece of paper and a table + friends. There is no time when a you can't use grid paper, but you could use a touch screen. The touch screen is not more convenient.

I completely disagree, using the touch screen allows for perfect mapping extremely quickly compared to graph paper, you don't have to set the game down in order to draw, and you don't end up with a scuffed up hard to read piece of paper by the end of a dungeon. The only better part about graph paper is being able to quickly write annotations and other notes, but even then the annotate feature in EO has an advantage in being able to embed the annotation inside a particular grid space.

You keep track of where you are on the map. It'll be like an actual adventure where you have to actually immerse yourself in the game!
FOEs
Those are lazy game design and need to go.

You don't draw out maps on separate pieces of paper for Final fantasy or whatever game do you? Do you plan your strategies for FE by first plotting the map down and use figurines and dice to act out battles?

Yes, there are many games I have used grid paper for. That is how people used to play these types of games.

Maybe there'd be more discussing if they posted Anko no Erohon 3 [English]. I've been waiting for 4.5 years and still nothing. I know it's there I saw it.

pirated EO4
enjoyed it at first
got bored some time during the 3rd stratum and quit
I like the map features and all, but traditional turn-based combat is such a turn-off.

It's a smooth substitute and the only feasible option for a modern non-PC crawler without just throwing any semblance of it out the window.
It's really the best digitally integrated grid mapping system within a DRPG like this.

Charles Ward

One thing I wished the mapping feature had was a larger character limit. I don't know how many times I had to lay down two notes adjacent to each other awkwardly, just to make one note.

You can. General are there when theres too much to discuss and requires many threads. EO general cant even add up a thread worth of discussion. A general can be brought back when discussion is at top speed and need a general for it to keep up around a few hours. Not bumping it with images for literelly days.

Matthew Parker

It's only regressing if it's removing an improvement. Touch screen/auto-mapping is just extreme dumbing down.

But they have some sort of constant discussion. EO literelly has nothing left to discuss. Is just muh waifu this and that with image bumps because even they cant keep up the waifu posting

Okay, but this started over the Switch, potentially the series new home, not having that space. And there is nothing wrong with that. Having the touch screen does not make EO special. Its just a shitty substitute for grid paper welded onto your handheld. But no developer will have the balls to release a game on a nintendo platform without obscene amounts of handholding so I'm sure they will figure something out. Probably just a map in the corner of the screen or something.

Jacob Perry

So nintendo will make the correct decision to ruin it because people are too dumb to use grid paper, as this thread has demonstrated.
