So I recently got Disgaea 5 and am almost at 20 hours, and I swear the game is forcing me to get smarter. XD It's much more tactical/strategic than I am used to. Anyone who likes anime should like this as well, everything happening is completely over the top, and the dlc I've played through so far is absolutely adorable. I love how the hub world is slowly getting busier with more and more characters as well.

But the reason I came here was to see if anyone knows what to do with the scrolls you sometimes get in quests etc? I have collected quite a few, but I'm not sure what to dow with them. (though I feel I don't know how to best/most effectively use pretty much anything yet XD )

Also, could someone please explain how I do with innocents? I realise what to use them for, but I am supposed to be able to merge them together (or whatever the term used is) but I can't seem to figure out how?

Thank you~

@antster1983 Thank you. This guide will be very helpful going forward, it seems. I'll try not to read too much and risk spoiling myself.

This may be impossible to answer, but I'm wondering if people think I will like this game based on my past likes. This is one I am interested in, and I see it is going to be $20 on Black Friday at Best Buy. Unfortunately, I don't actually have a Switch yet (I plan to get one soon, hopefully before the end of the year), so I can't try out the demo. I generally have not liked SRPGs that much, but most of my experience has been with Fire Emblem. I have not cared for any of the FE games I have tried. However, I do really like Stella Glow. Which of those games is this one more similar to? Thanks for any advice.

@Xyphon22 it's similar to Stella Glow in a lot of ways, but it has so many options and so much customization that it can be overwhelming. However, what helped me get over the overwhelming feeling is that you don't have to minmax and overthink everything. Same premise I used for Pokémon games these days.

For $20, I say def take a chance on it.
Worst case scenario, you don't like it and you trade it in and get $10ish back, so you're out only $10.

It's definitely a good deal so I won't be out much money. The other problem is how many other games I will have to get, notably Zelda. Will I actually have time for this and Zelda (and Mario and whatever else I get)? Probably not. Decisions, decisions.

You haven't got a Switch then don't buy Switch games.

@jump Normally I wouldn't. I haven't bought any yet. But $20 for a $60 game when I hope to get the system within a couple of weeks may be too good to pass up. Of all the games that are going to be on sale on Black Friday, this is the only one that I am thinking about getting.

@Xyphon22 I paid 60 for Disgaea 5 Complete and thought it was worth it because of the massive content, endless replayability, deep strategy, and funny characters/story.
I would jump on it for 20!

It didn't totally hook me because I'm not so keen on turnbased games it seems (haven't beaten Mario+Rabbids either), but it's a great game to fall back to (especially on handheld) to beat another stage or to grind a bit.

I hope I get some more time with it after DOOM, L.A. Noire, Skyrim, Xenoblade 2 and the BotW DLC.

Other than that, you maybe should know that I love Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (didn't care for any other FE game) and I don't think Disgaea 5 Complete comes close to these two.

@SKTTR Great, thanks for the reply. I know I've played Sacred Stones and the demo for Awakenings at least and didn't care for either of them. I do like turn-based games generally, so it sounds like there is at least a pretty good chance I will get at least $20 worth of enjoyment out of it. Especially if it works as a decent pick-up-and-play game when I want a break from BotW.

@Xyphon22 The Sacred Stones didn't do much for me. And Awakening was even worse. I guess I was spoiled by playing the best two Fire Emblem games ever made. If it helps, I think Disgaea 5 Complete is much better than TSS and Awakening.

Alright, I think I'll go ahead and take the plunge on this game (assuming I can find a copy of it, of course). And maybe if I get a Switch soon enough I will even have time to play the demo and just return it if I don't care for it.

Is it too complex for 1st time player ?

I heard from my friend It's more complex than fire emblem or final fantasy tactics ?

@Swordsman83 It is a lot more complex than those games, but it doesn't start out like that. In the beginning you just have a few units with basic attacks, and new options are added after every battle. The real complexity comes when you start choosing how to upgrade your units and weapons, which characters to fight with and which ones to assign to research tasks, and managing your base. You end up with a LOT of different options.

As much as I like the game, it might not be the best SRPG to start out with. If you've played anything like FE or Mario+Rabbids and enjoyed those, I definitely recommend it. Otherwise, maybe try one of those and see if you like the genre before taking this one on?

Okay, so I only barely scratched the surface of the tutorial in this game several months ago, before being pulled away by other games. I am now going to start a new game so I know what and where I am at in the game both story and mechanics wise. is there any advice for a good way to "start" the game so I don't look back 25hrs or so in and go "OH I should have done that instead..."???

RPG, FPS, Adventure,Action...oh I like 'em all!

@scubydo Unless you intend to play really hardcore and go for the post game super challenges, the game is really forgiving. Eventually you will get the ability to re-roll your characters back to level 1 and start over, which gives you further stat modifiers. If all you want to do is play through the story, you have nothing to worry about.

I've played over 100 hours of the game and I'm still got tons of grinding to do if I waana complete the post game stuff. I'm not sure I will be done with this before the next game comes out.
