Chapter 3 is a great place to grind. I used Grapp Keep (and a couple Sage Staff’s to spam “Raise”) to get from a level 26 party to a level 52 party in a few hours.

Yep, that confirms it, I'm way to overpowered. I'm near level 21 at maybe the halfway point in chapter one. Plus I've just about upgraded the whole town and have bought a few too many items. I vowed to not use friend summons amymore but still not much has been challenging up to this point. I've back the encounter down to normal and if I need to will drop it again. Balance is the key to a good experience.

^You haven't seen chapter 3 yet. Things really start to ramp up around there. I died even in a bad random encounter (Sucubuses are horrible when they have extra BP), and came close to death in several others, and I'm almost at level 50...

Hey, i am looking for some advice for my party setup. Currently, I am near the end part of Chapter 2 (I think), well I have the summoner and ranger jobs anyways...my team setup right now is Tiz (Thief), Agnes (White Mage), Ringabel (Monk), and Edea (Spirit Sword?/Black Mage)...any thoughts on who should learn the Ranger and summoner jobs...maybe to mix it up a bit. Thanks for the thoughts!

Currently playing: Mario Kart 8, W101, Lego City, and MANY eshop games. :)

Tiz should be Ranger. Make Edea the Summoner with Black Magic as a secondary.

I haven't really used Summon magic at all. The MP cost is so darn high that it's not efficient for grinding, and that you can't just target one enemy makes them inefficient for bosses too. I think Black Mage is a better choice all around. The support abilities for Summoner aren't even that useful.

And yes, Chapter 5 was... perplexing. My playing has slowed down recently, but still making my way through this. Traveling around the world in search of genome abilities now. They seem a little OP, especially the ones you get from bosses.

@devinias It may be worth your while to designate a tank. Your party seems pretty squishy. If you have a decent job level on Agnes's White Mage right now, consider switching to a Knight for a bit to make an armored healer. The Shield Lore ability could be useful in the long run, and you can always switch back to White Mage later.

Edea is normally my tank, but I have to level her magic jobs right now, she's mastered almost all the fighters already. I set her up with the correct weapons and support abilities and she does massive damage. I use Tiz as a wall, though I need to tweak his support abilities a bit more, some more knight abilities should help. Agnes is my healer, sage's staff and blessed shield are basically free healing, combined with the salve's healing ability I can keep the party at full HP most of any battle now.

The thing about this game is that mining EXP is really kind of fun.

Friend list is full, I will be clearing room for Bravely Default soon though. Colors! 3D Gallery, My Blog

In my party so far, Tiz is a White Mage/Spell Fencer, Agnes is a Thief/Ranger, Ringabel's a Knight/Pirate and Edea is a Valkyrie/Black Mage. Yeah, I know that my class combinations don't make sense :p

Actually, Theif+Ranger is a Good combo. As is Knight+Pirate (sort of, Knight's not a very strong class, but the debuffs can be useful). But why White Mage+Spell Fencer? You should've put that on the Valkyrie and do White Mage + Black Mage.

I think it's counterproductive to have one character with two class abilities with vastly different uses. Combining a physical attacker with a healer means that every turn, you have to either not attack or not heal, which can lead to disaster for bosses.* I think Spell Fencer is best combined with a heavy physical damage class like Valkyrie, Pirate, or Monk. Elemental attacks compliment the heavy damage skills of those classes. I have Ringabel on Pirate/Spell Fencer, with the Two-Handed and Multitask support abilities. It's pretty nasty.

*I don't consider Knight a physical attacker.

I didn't like Black Mage/White Mage because in nearly all bosses, the White Mage is healing every turn and you still need a Black Mage to sling spells. I should have clarified that I'm not using Valkyrie and Black Mage at the same time lol, I swap her roles between Black Mage/Time Mage and Ninja/Valkyrie. Same with Tiz, he's either a White Mage/Performer or a Spell Fencer/Performer. I have every character at level 10ish for three or four jobs though.

Also, knight is awesome! With full armour and buffed with Shield Bash they take one damage from just about anything.

Just completed the Summoner sidequest...

The stories in the sidequests have been incredibly dark so far. I can't believe the little girls actually died! Did NOT see that coming at all. The secret of the hairpins was simultaneously gross and awesome. Gross because, well, fairies having their wings ripped off. Awesome because the game actually went there. Also, that summoner going on about "another soul" inside Tiz kind of creeped me out. I wonder if this'll become relevant later in the game...

Very impressed with this game so far. This might just become my favorite 3DS title at this rate.

Man, I'm 45 hours in and only just started chapter 4. This is gonna be a long one. I'll probably take a break after this chapter, assuming I don't run out of steam before then...

Probably. My top 3 at this point are VLR, SMT4, and FE:A. All such wonderful experiences.

I've heard complaints about later chapters in the game, so I'm going to reserve my judgment until I've finished it, but it is already on the shortlist for my top five. I do wish it had the option to start the game with certain unchangeable presets, though. I have to use powerful Streetpass attacks as soon as I get them lest I be tempted to use one during a tough battle. Some guy I streetpassed today has a character attack with a power of roughly 199,000. That's pretty much the definition of game-breaking. Also, I've succumbed once or twice to the temptation of the random encounter slider. And I really had to force myself to not use Abilink...

This game needs a hardcore mode, desperately, that takes out all of this game-breaking social stuff.

I've found I look forward to the Party Chats almost as much as the actual gameplay. The writing is delightful.

Yeah, I've tried as hard as I can to not use the social stuff. Even some of the Norende weapons are game breaking. It's a lot more fun taking on bosses with your own skills rather than relying on a summon which deals more damage than should be possible. At least it's all optional, I guess.

I don't actually feel bad about using Abilink though, unless the classes are maxed. If it's at a reasonable level which I could grind to, I just see it as a bit of a shortcut.

I've unlinked everyone a while back and as far as friend summons I've used them only once. It destroyed a nemesis in one shot and that was no fun. I also think rebuilding your town is too much of an advantage but the way this game gives you money it's not to game breaking. Another problem is as much as I like options in my rpgs (EO Untold and EO4 did them right) being allowed to turn the encounter rate up or down is also a problem. Too many games these days are made to appeal to the masses and movies as well see any of the new Transformers movies. They don't appeal to me the core fan they appeal to the masses to make more money and that's the bottom line. While I understand this concept I don't really care for it. Gone are the days of true challenge and core fan appeal.
