So I'm about a month into Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, and I really like it! Though there HAS been some plot points that made me a bit grr-faced (you have to rescue kidnapped girls, and Rain is rather lecherous when talking about Siren and Shiva) but for the most part the plot is good.
I'm currently rocking a party of Rain, Lasswell, Krile, Penelo, and Dark Knight Cecil. Cecil is my leader, so that means my friends can play with him. Krile's my healer and is working pretty well in that role right now. Penelo's probably the weakest of the group, and the first one I drop when there's challenges for a party of less than the full party size.
Speaking of Penelo, in this game she's a dancer. This rather surprised me, because FFXII doesn't have the dancer role, at least not in the original version (I don't know if the Zodiac version does). I don't use her dancer abilities often, but Curing Waltz has been nice when I needed a little extra healing.
I've been checking out the Unit Ranking list
, and I see I have two units ranked #1 in their roles - Refia & paladin Cecil. I'm currently working on leveling Refia to take over at healer, but I can't swap her out yet as she doesn't have any cure spells at the moment. I haven't really had need for a tank, but I will probably level Cecil next.
Dark Knight Cecil is fifth for physical damage, so I'm doing pretty good there. I really with I had Lightning. One of my friends has a maxed out Lightning, and she's just so totally ridiculous. I see Kefka is ranked third for magical damage. I do have him, so I'll probably level him soon as well.
So I think I'm doing pretty good, unit-wise, considering I've only been playing a month! I do wish I could have gotten Dracu Lasswell during the Halloween event, as he's pretty strong, but it was not to be.
Speaking of events, I haven't really been doing them, as I wasn't sure if I was strong enough for them yet. I did try some of the Grand Gaia events and did the first few dungeons, which netted me a free summon ticket. Right now there's The Big Bridge event, which I think I will try because I'm rather a big fan of Final Fantasy V.
I haven't tried the Arena yet, for fear I'd get clobbered in it. Yet the guide does say that you get stuff even for losing, so maybe I'll try it soon.
One thing that's frustrating me is not having the ingredients for magic keys
. I see now that I can buy them with Lapis, but I'm not sure that'd be a good use of my Lapis. Yet the ingredients to make a key are rather hard to obtain, so.... I don't know, I may end up buying some keys eventually. Though looking at the silver chest list
, the items don't look as spectacular as I had thought they were, so yeah. Hmm.
