How's my party set-up?

Front Line
>Protector
>Landsknecht

Back Line
>Medic
>Survivalist
>Troubador

Thinking about swapping out Survivalist for an Alchemist, but I dunno.

You have a protector and medic in EO1, you're already set.

Having a protector, medic, survivalist and troubadour on the same team means you have very little damage
>>
You're gonna hate anything that resists physical attacks.
>>
If you have Survivalist, you're good, because it is broken as shit in the first game.
>>
>>323981085
Yeah, I've noticed that shit took a while to kill. I tried swapping out the Survivalist for an Alchemist, but I'd have to do a bit of grinding to get the Alchemist up to level 4.

>>323981314
Let me guess - there's a floor full of monsters that can resist physical attacks?

Survivalists hit hard, you just need Apollon and Multi-hit.
>>
>>323980690
Pretty good. The protector will seem kinda shit at times, but they are 100% needed for certain parts.
>>
>>323981515
If you are going to swap, swap the troubadour. You can only have three buffs anyways, and your other characters will already be giving you two.
>>
>>323982176
Immunize is the best buff in the game anyways
>>
I think we can all agree on Protector, Medic, and Survivalist are a given, but what about the last two spots?
Dark Hunter for binds, maybe, but what else?
Alchemist for elemental exploits?
>>
>>323981515
No, but there are FOEs that resist physical and they are a pain in the ass to deal with generally.

>>323982536
Pretty much that.
IRC all other classes are trash.
>>
>>323982335
With a Troubador you can keep Immunize up forever.
>>
>>323981894
Well, they appear to be the Tank class or whatever, or the class that can take a bunch of hits.

>>323982176
>You can only have three buffs anyways
I was wondering about that (as, if I'm going against a kinda hard enemy, I'd buff up my party with Bravery, Shelter, Mercury, and Quicken). Sucks that you can't have more, but I guess it means you don't grab a bunch of classes who can buff your party up a bunch, and then go all in.

>>323982536
Shit, I forgot about Dark Hunter's. What are they like? Are they any good?
>>
>>323982536
Landsknecht and alchemist, probably. I didnt like dark hunters in that game, binding stuff was a pain.
>>
>>323982536
Landsknecht and Alchemist
>>
>>323982870
Sword DH was better than whip DH in 1.
>>
>>323982730
By a glitch or by using "Relaxing"?
>>
>>323980690
That was my party, I finished the game one week ago. It's a grat team to use during the whole game, postgame included.

Medic should have Immunize to Lv10 and Protector Defender to Lv5, Get Apollon and Multihit on Survivalist. Landsknecht depends if you want to use Swords or mixed but you definitely will require Swords because his AOE attacks can destroy whole hordes of enemies.

KEEP THE TROUBADOUR. It may not look like much but Lv10 Bravery gives you a huge damage boost, especially to Landsknecht who can pretty much OHKO every enemy with Allslash or Tornado.

If you keep the team, reply me, I can help you so you don't have to rely on Resting.
>>
>>323982870
>>323982913
Why?
Element Chasers seemed to suck ass for me.
>>
>>323982840
Bravery is the best one of those, so keep that and max it.
>>
Oh, right, and should I sell literally everything I get?

I'm running low on money due to me reviving my party almost every time I come out of the dungeon, and then resting (which is about a ~160 en if 4 of my party members are dead).

>>323983286
I'll probably see how far I can get with it. I don't really want to spend the time grinding Alchemist up to level 4/5.
>>
>>323982995
Relaxing, IIRC at max level it recovers about the same amount of TP a max level Immunize requires in 5 turns.
>>
>>323983507
Money is a bitch in this game, you are going to be really lacking in it for a while.
Was EO1 the game in which you had a gathering point about 6 tiles away from the entrance to the dungeon? If it is you can make a party of survivalists and just grind that a bit.
>>
>>323983507
Sell all the drops, yes. When on a request from the bar, remember which items are those and don't sell them.
>>
>>323983406
Landshark All-Slash is really good
Alchemist for easy elemental damage
>>
>>323983507
I will insist you on keeping Troubadour. She can learn Bravery which gives you a 50% damage boost at Lv10, Erasure is great against buffing monsters and can also enchant other weapons with Fire, Ice or Volt, so you will actually not miss having an Alchemist.

Also, get Relaxing. The MP boost may not help much during the first two Stratums but later you will thank having constant TP Regen for your Medic.

>>323983690
Yes, in BF1 there's a Chop spot, with 5 Survivalists in Lv1 he can grind a good chunk of money. After that Stratum, money stops being an issue, in my own experience.
>>
>>323983617
>5% of max TP recovered at Relaxing 10
>immunize costs 14 (?) at level 10
I suppose by that point you can definitely make up for your losses.
>>
>>323983948
Guess I'll grab those skills and grind that Chop spot for a bit.

Is there anything else I should know about before continuing?
>>
>>323983947
It's chance-based though.
You might only do 2 hits instead of 4, and that's max level allslash.
I suppose you could always raise a separate ally for bosses if you really needed binds or ailments.
>>
>>323984215
If you want to clear the post endgame content you will need to have maxed the anti skills on your protector by then.
>>
>>323984507
Don't you only need level 5? 5 is when it nullifies elemental damage. 6 onward go into absorb element.
>>
>>323984215
Don't feel ashamed if you need to use a guide. The game can get pretty brutal sometimes. Is also important to know what you rally want.

In my personal experience, Landsknecht is great with both Swords and Axes, first one for Allslash (which requires Lv5 Swords and Lv5 Axes) because it can easily take hordes of 3-4 enemies, and latter because Crush is huge against bosses and FOEs. That, along with Troubadour, gives you a very good damage boost.

In late game, Protector will need Anti Elements at Lv5 if you want to survive post game bosses. They pretty much OHKO your entire party first turn if you don't have them.

Survivalist needs max Agi, Bows, Apollon and Multihit. Apollon can deal thousands of damage at max level, Multihit has increased damage and hit multipe times.
>>
>>323984709
Yeah you are right. You only need 5, but if you dont have it you get oneshotted.
>>
For someone that has never played a EO game

what's a good one to start off with for a 3ds?
>>
>>323984507
Maxed anti skills absorb damage but not ailments. Nullifying is better.
>>
>>323984969
EO4 demo.
>>
>>323980690
Pretty good actually.
Just don't get used to Inmunize. Especially if you want to play Untold.
>>
>>323984969
I'd say start from the very first game, but depends. I already beat it and it was quite hard and I'm currently in II and is even more brutal. As far as I know, III and IV are more balanced. You could also get the Untold ones that are remakes of the first two, they have the Classic mode and STory mode too.
>>
>>323984969
IV. But there are demos for all the 3DS games.
>>
>>323984969
see>>323985017

But you probably have a CFW 3DS so start with EO4 of EOU.
But the first game wil,be always the best place to start.
>>
>>323985295
>CFW 3DS

nope, I have an old 3ds xl I bought that has been underplayed. i thought EO was older than the ds, so it seems I should either start from the very beginning with EO1, or pick it up at EO4 or something? Is there any quality changes with later games that make it more fun?
>>
>>323985889
There are definitely improvements. In my opinion, you need to begin with the very first game. Even if outdated, will get you to understand the mechanics and appreciate changes in the next games. And is still a very fun game to play, albeit very hard if you're used to traditional JRPGs. Enemies can deal more than 1/3 of damage from the very first floor, so there's a lot of backtracking.
>>
Fact: I picked the dancer in this game purely because she looked like a child and wore the least amount of clothing.
>>
>>323986238

well the first games will be super cheap so heres to a deal!
>>
when are we going to get news on 5?
>>
>>323986535
Everyone does that. Surprising, she's very useful also.
>>
>>323986783
Spoilers: Etrian 5 and Untold 3 will be the same game.

EO anime when?
>>
>>323988819
It'll be announced alongside V
>>
>>323983286
That was also my party back when I first tried the game.
Got past Fenrir and then got distracted.

I wonder how viable it truly is.
You say keep the troubadour but he really didnt feel so useful most of the time.
