Very cool! I haven't spent enough time with this game. I love it, but I'm playing it (because it works so well) as my "on the side" game while my main game is XC2 (done now) to prepare for Torna, plus some Steamworld Dig 2 (got hooked after trying it out finally after failing to love Hollow Knight.) Too may huge time sink games at once! But I expect to be playing Octopath as the perfect "side game" through the end of 2018 Or until Valkyria takes its thunder...but I'm not thinking that will happen until I hit a crazed difficulty spike at minimum.

I'm still progressing through this, but a lot more slowly than before because of life getting in the way and other fun things.

This has definitely been my main game since it released, but I've been downloading a couple of eShop games, mainly due to sales. I don't like leaving them on my home screen but I've learned the hard way that juggling too many games is a bad idea. So right now I'm just playing Octopath Traveller and Superbeat XONiC, and Splatoon 2 whenever the Splatfests happen

@Kimyonaakuma Same for me. I'm determined to get through Octopath before starting another game and I've got at least 4 to 6 games since I bought it. Either sales or Okami and Monster Hunter. I've played those games a bit but quickly drop them before I get too invested.

@Spoony_Tech Ōkami HD has been really tempting during the past couple of weeks but I'm determined to finish Octopath Traveller! I learned during the 3DS days that putting a RPG on hold to play something else is a terrible idea

But I guess having some games lined up isn't a bad thing, and having Shantae, Hollow Knight and Ōkami is something to look forward to...and Battle Chef Brigade but I don't see that lasting long. Hopefully the Direct tomorrow will add some more games to that list, because I don't have many upcoming games left this year...

Octopath is just so beautifully set up as a handheld type "play it when there's a chance" type game since int's not terribly story-driven, and what story it has is nicely divided into contained chapters, and the classic turn based battles make each battle its own little play session. It's a fun game to just work through over months rather than focusing non-stop hours on it like Xenoblade and other story-driven fare. Plus, no way I'm missing the Torna launch.

I'm 92 hours on my save. Console says 105. I have admittedly died a bunch, and left it on the main screen and walked away for a bit.

Make sure you get both teams to level 70 evenly by thr end of the game. I didn't and now I have to grind. Stopped for a day and was going to just say screw it and play Ys 8 NG+ instead, but it was nagging me to go back. I hate grinding.

Won't touch it for a long time after Torna comes out though.

@Trajan I'm on my last chapter 3 with all characters above level 40. I know I still have a ways to go but I've not had to grind as of yet. I'm about 78 hours in but like you I've left it idle probably for 5 or more.

BTW, do you guys complete all ch1 town quests before going on to ch2 or are some of them things you're likely to find when on the way to ch2? I still have a few town quests pending that I haven't found the object they're referring to yet.

NEStalgia

Spoony_Tech

@NEStalgia I try to do them if I can. Some towns I've totally cleared but others seem like it will take a while.

So i stumbled into my first shrine. That was easy! Glad I asked here, I hadn't even realized I could explore in the grass now. Chapter 1 roads kept you on railed corridors and I didn't notice that the full field is now explorable on ch2 roads. It's scholar for now.

Final was able to continue on with this game last night after a few days off (work and other RL stuff). Picked up Olbric or whatever his name is and while I do like him I find I like the hunter more as my fighter type.

Right now my party consists of

H'annit as my fighter type
Therieon for some his rogue skills and speed
Alf for healing and ice magic
Primrose for buffing and dark magic attacks

In all I am enjoying the way this team synergies but I still have to meet a few more characters so we will see if I stick with this group.

So I've finished 2 chapter 4's now and I have to say Primrose boss was a pain if nothing else. I beat it first try but dang if I wasn't silenced for like the whole last 3rd of the match. I quickly ran out of ways to un-silence myself thus getting locked. That battle and the warm-up to the last battle lasted a good hour.

Question for those that beat the game and did the final final boss. I found a boss that's just in a random cave that is literally kicking my butt and I don't even stand a chance. Hardest thing to this point I've fought. Without telling me exactly where the final boss is can someone tell me the whereabouts of this boss and is it even possible to find it before doing all chapter 4's? This boss alone I will need to level as much as possible I can tell.

Better yet describe what this boss looks like in one word like an animal or something. Spoiler tags please.

@Spoony_Tech You won't find the big final boss by wandering around the map. You need to beat all the chapter 4's and there's a series of sidequests you have to do before it opens up.

There's a handful of powerful bosses you'll find in caves and such. I always found they did a ton of damage but for some reason didn't have much HP at all.

@Cynas Thanks! This one us ripping me apart to the tune of over 2500 damage to all and this is before I can even begin to break them. 10 hits to break with only 2 weaknesses.

Edit: You were right, I stuck with it and beat it. Had to break it twice but the hit points were low enough to beat it. I had one character left after the attack so I brought back Ophilia with her over hit point ability she was at 9999. This was enough to keep me in the game long enough to take it out. I was quite literally shocked I beat it but that's what I love about thses types of games. You dont necessarily have to grind to beat everything, just use what you have can make the difference.

Getting my second special job was a bit of a pain as it took about 5 to 6 tries to defeat but I took my strongest team and got the job done if not just barely. I want these jobs to defeat the rest of these chapter 4's. Seems pointless to get them only for the final boss alone. By then I would've barely used them and be done with the game.

I only took Sorcerer and so far from the 2 Chapter 4 boss I fought (Therion and Primrose's), both of them aren't even close to the special job's bosses. Heck, I even feel like that Kraken / Leviathan enemy boss thing gave me more problem!

I'll slowly do the Chapter 4 bosses though... I want to play Torna T_T/

The special job bosses all seemed difficult at first but most of them have some pretty easy ways to beat them since they use very specific types of skills. For example the first one I got was Sorcerer and my characters were around level 48. He completely destroyed me the first time I tried but then I changed my strategy. I used the dancer's divine skill then cast reflect. Since the boss only uses magic attacks he basically can't hurt you and will end up killing himself after just a few turns. Since each attack he uses against you hits your entire party 3 times, it'll reflect 12 hits back on him.

Of all the caves around the world, which is a good one to grind between ch1 and 2?

Also, do you guys tend to pick one well suited job to pair with each character as a secondary, or do you tend to level up (heavily grind) to get a lot of upgrades across a lot of jobs for each character like BD and FF4 demands?

This game only allows you to carry 4 special skills no matter how many jobs you take on so it really limits you to one job per person imo. I find that after you upgrade all the skills of a second job you have more then enough good stuff to choose from of those 8 skills you unlock. Getting a character to learn say 3 or more jobs just seems pointless to me. I for one have left my secondary jobs alone throughout the whole game till the point I'm at with the exception of the 2 special jobs I got. Even if you learn more jobs with one character they can still only use the weapons across only the 2 current. If it was a benefit to learn all spells and weapon carry then that would be different.

@Spoony_Tech That's really good news actually. I gasped when I saw the "jobs" thing introduced in Octo. I wanted to break stuff with that in Bravely......every boss was a gimmick that wanted a certain build "everyone should be a vampire now!" so I felt like I had to grind practically every job for every character. Octo does it sanely then!

@subpopz That's an interesting build. So far I've been doing Olberic (main) as a warrior/scholar and Ophelia as a cleric/hunter but I really didn't have a strategy to it. That seemed like a good fit because staff/bow/axe/ seemed a good mix. Olberic I wasn't sure. Having spells on him for when swords fail seemed good and yet swords seem useful more times than not at least when everyon'es already broken.

Tressa (for the money) and Therion are the hard ones to do without, plus Cyrus for Analyze.

Hmm I'm like level 13 going into chapter 2 with most of my characters They were level 9 or so coming from their own chapters. I have a feeling I was finishing the ch1 bosses at oddly low levels
