Don't try going for 100% off the bat. That's only for later playthroughs.

Finish quests in the guild as soon as possible.

White Gehenna > everything

If you're going to use S-break, try to use it when you have been granted a critical or str up.

It's unlike other RPGs where you are supposed to save the universe right off the bat. You're just two teens on bracer training, try not to drop the game on the first chapter.
And yes, things do escalate.

Take it slow and don't procrastinate on your bracer guild quests.

It's a magnificent game if you take in all the world and character building instead of sprinting through.

If SC and Coldsteel the Trailhog do well enough there's a chance we may get 3rd in Winter 2016.

There's basically no chance for Zero or Ao since there was no PC port and the company who distributed those games are famous for hating the West.

Playing through SC at the moment, and i liked the all the NPC talk, like the guy that had fishing for a Hobby and didn't pay attention to the wife, so she decided to be better than him at fishing and succeded easily.

Does the story of that family on Bose about how the husband suggested they make a small shop in the city, but went back to their farm house to work there leaving the child and mother working in the city by thenselves progress?
Or the little kid who got a reality check every time he said something about wanting to be a great merchant and the little girl shattered it, only at the end to imply she would be dating him if he put effort in being successful?

I know I shouldn't judge the characters YET but what exactly happened to the mindset in terms of DESIGN? Why is everyone so samey now? Even in zero and ao things are kind of like that as well.
>>
>>315627607
Mine is:
Top tier:
>Joshua (simply the most potent DPS character in the game, he doesn't need turn delay crafts to be top tier, best used as a combination of magic and physical DPS, with gladiator headband he can jump from zero to 100 CP in seconds just by unleashing a few aoe spells then killing all survivors with his GOAT s-crafts)
>Kevin (literally the best line of support crafts in the game plus good mage, CP battery for rest of the party, healer and panic button all at once)

Hight tier:
>Zane (mediocre in the beginning but when you hit higher levels and he learns +60% attack/def buff craft he becomes incredibly tough and damaging, far surpassing even Agate and gladiator accessories make CP accumulation easy as fuck)
>Agate (broken in the beginning thanks to wild rage but gradually loses his advantage)
>Olivier (best dedicated mage but his crafts suck ass)
>Schera (overall crap character but AT Advance move allows her to jump from low tier to high tier)

Mid tier:
>Estelle (really mediocre character because she ain't a specialist, her strongest ability is to rally physical characters with her aoe STR buff and then go with Chain 3 on enemy asses, Estelle/Joshua combo is very potent as she can inspire and support him while he goes cuhrayzee, she can also serve as a great healer)

Low tier:
>Kekloe (good mage but brittle as fuck and with 3 water locked slots and 1 useful crafts that won't work on any powerful opponent)
>Tita (ranged physical attacker who is crap all around, her only possible usage is in farming sepith on sepith+ turns with her s-craft)
>>
Was Kloe downgraded in SC? I swear she was a lot more useful in FC. I think he Def and Str down craft was a lot stronger too.

She's literally the bottomest of the bottom tiers in SC.
>>
>>315628687
She did, i got surprised too once i got her in chap. 1. Her art damage was higher, decent enough HP, attack was pretty much the same as Estelle's, but now it's like all that got worse. She still has 3 water slots, so yeah, she's like botton of the barrel now.

Pretty much something like this

>Locked to your party tier
Estelle, Joshua

>Top tier
Joshua, Kevin, Olivier

>High Tier
Agate, Zane

>mid Tier
Estelle, Scherazard

>low tier
Kloe, Tita

>I don't know where to put these yet tier
Mueller, Josette, Julia

Kevin is pretry much the best support character thanks to his S-break and Party CP restore craft.

Olivier is the best mage and buffer.

Agate is good for CP spam attacks.

Zane is not only the best tank but the best big fucking hits.

Joshua is fast and really good at dealing both physical damage and magic damage and is locked into an element that is non-elemental allowing him to hit just about anything. His AT delay also makes him really useful at manipulating turn order.

Schera is really average in just about everything but has a useful AT up craft to manipulate turns.

Estelle is an all rounder, not really good at anything but not bad at anything either.

Tita is good for debuffing thanks to her range on regular attacks and crafts.

Kloe is pretty much a pure healer with a really good debuff and a useful healing S-break but can't do much more other than that.

Yes.

>>
was this shit made in RPG maker
>>
>>315629237
She wasn't that great in FC either, Taking Olivier was better simply because if Saint and better attacking spells, but mostly because of saint.

In FC she was more useful because of her debuff being -50% but even then, thats literaly all she could do other han heal. Her range was extremely short and she was still locked to three water slots.

Speaking of FC, Agate was really shit there other than for farming poms. Wild Rage only gave 50 CP so it was much better to spend on reular crafts than build up for s-break.
>>
So, a question about importing the 100% file into SC.

All you get for getting all the Bracer Points is a rare drop up quartz. Monster drops in FC are pretty much pointless, is it the same in SC? Are monster drops pretty much just ingredients and things not to care about?

Am I going to give the slightest fuck about not having that quartz because of the one bracer point I missed? (stipid smoke canister on floor 1.)
>>
How long is the third trails in the sky game? I heard dialogue wise it's probably shorter than FC or around the same, and the story is self contained but branchs off to Ao/zero and develops characters and closes up certain things that weren't asnwered.
>>
>>315629562
Monster drops in SC include fishing bait which can be used for fishing up some good stuff like 100 sepith of some kind or accessory.

>>315634183
It gives substantial debuff to magic damage given the damage formula kiseki games are using. I can see it working on healer/buffer though as their spells don't scale with magic attack power, probably will put it on Estelle for instant Earth Wall casts.

>>315634269
forgot that ATS was arts damage
>>
>>315627607
If you're playing on Normal than tiers don't matter too much since it isn't a very hard game, but:

>Estelle
She's a jack-of-all-trades, which is a bit unfortunate since in this game specialization is better than all-rounding. She doesn't have any locks though and you can make her a great support character since you're expected to dump all the utility quartz on her. She can also take a hit and Morale is pretty useful.

>Joshua
Sanic speed and good on both physical offense and arts. His crafts and S-Crafts are god-tier and he has Time locks on his orbment which is great because Time is non-elemental and thus can't be resisted, make sure to spam White Gehenna. Nothing personnel.

>Agate
Slow as fuck but hits super hard. Wild Rage and having someone who can use healing crafts/Earth Guard on him breaks a lot of the game in two because he can spam S-Crafts with impunity, but this becomes less effective later on. Shit at magic but who cares.

>Olivier
Best pure mage in the game thanks to having a single line for his orbment with the low price of one Mirage lock. He can also attack from super far and early on Happy Trigger acts as an instant La Tear. Most of his crafts and S-crafts are pretty shitty though.

>Kloe
Better on paper than in practice, she's your dedicated healer and has the EP pool to spam heals, but three Water locks hurts her bad and having more magic power doesn't actually make your heals stronger. Her first S-craft is a useful panic button (not as good as Kevin's though) but her offensive S-craft runs off of her awful STR for some reason so it suck ass.

>Schera
Okay mage with a Wind lock, she isn't as strong as Olivier but she can make your characters go fast which is always useful. A slut.

>Tita
Good at clearing trash mobs quickly and that's pretty much it, she has about as much HP as you'd expect a cute non-psycho loli to have.
>>
>>315623901
are full mage builds viable?

im about to play it for the first time
>>
So fishing only depends on the spot and the bait and not on rod itself right? Different rods just enables you to use different bait? So when you get aqua master you don't have to worry about using different ones right?
>>
>>315635173
One of two MCs can be both top tier physical and magical attacker, so of course.
Magic is stronger than physical damage in FC and still dominates SC even though physical crafts will get MAJOR buff as well.
>>
>>315635173
Each character has their own niche.

Estelle can be whatever, she's not great at anything but not bad at anything either.

Joshua is fast and can be both a physical attacker and a mage but is frail as fuck.

Schera and Olivier are pretty good mages, Olivier's mage capabilities get buffed quite a bit in SC.

Agate and Zane are awful mages due to having tons of lines but great physical attackers.

I forget Tita's orbment but she's also meant to be a physical attacker/trash mob clearer.

Kloe seems like a great mage on paper but her 3 Water locks hurt more than help since healing spells don't scale with ATS and she's therefore limited to healing, debuffing and water spells.

I can't bring myself to play FC on the PC and my PSP is broken. I heard the PC version is superior anyway. Maybe one of these days I'll stop being a bitch and play a handheld game on my PC (yes, I know it was originally a PC game).

Also, why is Chris best girl of the Gagharv trilogy?

Is it possible to play SC on PSP, or am I stuck getting a Vita if I wanna play it on the go?
>>
>>315636936
Things get pretty hype as the game goes on.

In chapter 1 and on you start getting ivolved with more major cases with 3 and 4 having the biggest.

That being said, the game itself is more of a journey of personal growth for Estelle and Joshua, while SC gets in touch with the actual drama behind the story.

Think of FC/SC together as one really big fucking game.
>>
>>315638836
Its possible to get it on psp.

Its on the psn store just go check it.
>>
So is there a consensus? Agate or Zane? I think they both have a lot of merit honestly, but I'm starting to lead toward Zane.
>>
>>315638836
Yes of course, it's a PSP game after all. It's just that most people have gone to the Vita, which also plays PSP games.
>>
>>315640460
Neither.

Pick Kloe and Olivier instead.

Literally last time I used Agate in SC his physical attacks were doing jack shit against the enemy despite being leveled up and having his best (at the time) equipment. I never put his useless ass in my party again.
>>
>>315640575
I really don't feel like Kloe is worth using. Kevin basically outclasses her in every way.

Olivier is pretty damn good, though.

>>315640460
Pretty much Zane since Agate will fall behind in usefulness in later chapters.

Zane has basically better stats than Agate in all fronts but only one multi-hit craft. Once you get gladiator accessories Agate's one advantage becomes more of a hindrance too.
>>
>>315640575
Kloe is worthless, if you wanna go full mage go Olivier/Kevin.

I would recommend against this though, because its much better to have balance.

I've finished FC twice but this is the first time I've heard this.

>>315650278
>After much wrangling on the implied/philosophical meaning of the game title (as Sora no Kiseki has quite a number of ways of being translated) we finally settled on a throw down between "Road to the Sky" or "Trails in the Sky." Road to the Sky had a nice upward trajectory ring to it, while Trails in the Sky conveyed a reoccurring theme within the game of the ever-crisscrossing lives of people and how they affect one another. In the end it was the importance of the journey of discovery/growth through interacting with people that won out.

Which is more likely?

>>315653101
Literally neither of them are going to happen. XSEED has a better chance of getting Falcom to just outsource a PC port of Ao to some other company so they can localize that.

Because Zero and Ao aren't ports, they're the PSP version in an emulator. Falcom aren't going to touch them, they even canceled Ao. And I guarantee nobody on XSeed staff knows how to inject text into PSP isos without external help. Even if they did, they'd probably get sued by Sony for selling a PSP emulator.

I enjoyed watching it, but if you're the type who will get pissed about the fact that they butchered the story then you should think twice.

My main gripes with it are that they made Estelle look like too much of a bumbling idiot (Sure, she's pretty goofy in the game, but she's still a competent bracer by SC) and Olivier isn't serious enough. Even though he's kind of a weirdo, he still does have a serious side, and they don't show that at all.

Anyway, like I said, I still enjoyed it despite the flaws. I wish they had covered the whole story, though.

Wow after 45 hours I've finally found another secret side quest in ch6. Are they really well hidden or there just isn't many of them.

You do understand the numbers provided come with a big +/- sign? And as their data gets more accurate it's possible for displayed owners to be reduced. They've never claimed to be perfectly accurate and especially new releases take time.

Her only good ability is an aoe STR buff and ability to equip any quartz. She's worse than most of the characters and at best suited for support, currently i just gave her cast 3 quartz which lowers her attack and put her behind other characters so she could spam earth walls and ex clock ups.

Her offensive crafts are GARBAGE aside from comet maybe. Cyclone does like 1/2 of the weapon damage without any extra effects, impede art almost never works, her one target only s-craft does less damage than Joshua's s-craft which attacks everyone on the screen.

You can make an attacker from her, but the thing is, she's going to suck dicks at it compared to actual top tiers.
>>
>>315659435

You really don't understand basic fucking data? The number they have for owners is a prediction/estimate/good guess, if the number goes down it means the prediction was overestimated. It doesn't mean 200 people suddenly refunded the game or anything.

Consider steamspy a decent estimate, is a game selling thousands/tens of thousands/hundreds of thousands. Few hundred here or two doesn't matter.

Agate. No competition, any one who can't recognize how stupidly OP agate is isn't playing the game right. I could have Killed Lorentz or whatever blade lords name is and his 2 tigers before he had a 2nd chance to move, but I decided to let him move again so he could clone himself and make the fight a little challenging.

The first thing to understand that AOE is king in SC. AOE and speed are pretty much all that matters. If you can survive the first round of hits from a boss You pretty much won the defensive battle thanks to speed down and Speed up EX

Dragon Dive has way more attack power than any other Limit break and is tied for the best AoE with Joshua, Dragon Dive can easily do 5K+ to every enemy on the map end game, much more if you get lucky with turn bonuses(or get lucky with Strike 2 quartz). Agate can do this twice a turn rotation plus can contribute to 2 chain crafts, with Schera if you're lucky he can do 3 S crafts and contribute to 4 chain crafts per turn rotation. that's going to be around 25k single target damage in one turn rotation(again much more if you get crit and STR ups). Best defense is a good offense is very true in SC, most boss fights come with a decent bit of trash mobs, which only Agate can take out before they even have a chance to move.

In terms of Early game Final break is still the best source of AOE damage and Beatdown is the best source for single target damage, Agate can also contribute to 2-3 Chain crafts before firing off his LB, since there's a limit to how far down the turn order you can go there's no down side to using him over and over to wreck shit. This becomes even more abusable once you acquire Scher and get AT advance.

He also has the best crowd control in the game that is often forgotten, Flame smash pushes enemies towards the other side of the map, you can cheese most boss battles this way. (this may work endgame too)

I could write more in a separate post but I think you get the gist.

Cont.

>Almost Broken

Schera
She's average other than her attack advance craft which is one of the most valuable in the game, that alone brings her up to high tier. This is the only way to get a spell cast off before the enemy gets a chance to move in boss fights. Use speed down, and the fight is pretty much over. also learn how to use Chain crafts.


End game Zane

End game Zane and early Game Zane are entirely different entities. Early Game Zane is a worthless piece of shit who can only watch as the rest of your team does all the work

End Game Zane gets a 60% STR buff and Thunder Kick. This is the best source for single target damage save for Agate/clever schera Chain Attack abuse. also has some mild aoe potential. His S crafts aren't worth using most of the time because you want to spam thunder kick. Fuck the Defense orbments, he has enough Defense. You want attack.

>I don't see what's so good about him tier

Kevin

I don't know where to place him, everyone else thinks he's OP so I must be missing something, single target Artes Damage sucks endgame and that's the only time he's really available Agate and Chain Crafts are all you really need for AOE. He has Grailsphere, but you need a whopping 200 CP to make it better than Earthwall, and Defense isn't a problem if you have a proper offense. Maybe Sacrificial arrow is good? I never had CP problems. I guess you could use it to easily get Agate up to 200 after a wild rage. Might be OP.
>>
>>315691286
>Good


Joshua

He was really good in FC, and he's still really good here, just not as much so because Attack Delays only work against a very select few bosses where Joshy is available. Dual Strike is actually really good for single Target damage not to mention you get double CP gain so you can make the CP cost almost nothing, and His S Craft is great. Only S craft I use besides Agate's endgame. He's fast, but by using speed down you can make the speed difference between him and other members negligible. He's also proficient in artes which is good for contributing aoe damage. But not more so than any other caster. I'm not sure if he's better than Oliver/Kevin.


Oliver

Best spell caster save for maybe Kevin, but unlike Kevin he's available in the parts of the game where attack artes aren't complete shit. Also has a decent S craft early game.
Nothing else to say, just all around solid.

>Meh
Estelle

She can carry non combat quarts, Hard break 2 is actually a very decent move. S crafts suck, morale is good, she can do the shitty support jobs so good character don't have to. Decent for chain crafts

Kloe

3 water restrictions kills her. She's worse than Oliver in every way and has pretty much the same availability, only advantage is Sieg craft 2. but you have to put a hit gem on her or it misses way too often. Her S craft can be a nice oh shit button in the Worm fight if they use too many earthquakes. She's also squishier than Oliver.

>Awful

Tita

She has a very limited usefulness early game because vital canon is a decent heal. Her attack is also good, in addition to it having an AOE property.

She has the worst orbment lines in the game save for Zane, I'd rather Make Agate a Spell caster. like seriously what the fuck. She's also squishy having half as much health as the rest of your party, normally I don't take defense into consideration, but hers is so far behind that it's a serious problem

To think that someone cares this much about how people view the effectiveness of their favorite characters in battle.

Fun Fact: I did my first playthrough of SC choosing Schera to accompany Estelle, but didn't even use her at advance craft once until the end stages of the game. Hell, I didn't even realize she had it. I also used Kloe extensively.

It doesn't fucking matter. Maybe if you're an insecure fuck who feels a need to use hard on their first playthrough it might, but TiTS isn't about the battle system. It isn't about showing how 'skilled' you think you are or how good you are at determining which characters to use. TiTS is about the STORY. That's IT.

It's truly amazing to me how many people here on the Internet don't realize that.
>>
>>315692603
Joshua doesn't need delay arts to be extremely viable as when coupled with gladiator's headband he can unleash his s-craft or charge for almost infinite amount of dual strikes after a singe aoe spell cast and he's actually most suited for the best line of spells in the game.

Orbal down makes his further casts extremely potent, especially given how fucking fast he is.

>>315628401
I just realized Olivier isn't in that picture. What gives?

No one is attack your playstyle, some people just care to discuss which characters and strategies are more effective

I couldn't believe this was a Falcom game Fantastic ost is the first thing I expect from them

So how many of you guys have seen how salty Weissman gets at the end of SC when his plans fail?
>>
>get to point where each field battle only gives you +3 exp per win
>field enemies still bum rush at you instead of fleeing
Good thing you have 100% escape unlike Evo version

>>315699334
Doing the prologue right now. Fuck this is boring. Hopefully it gets better.
>>
>>315701453
can't you just kill them with field attacks
>>
>>315695385
Enemies have higher defense
>>
>>315699831
They had an army of Jaegers do it, and Cassius wasn't directly involved in all of the defenses, which is why they lost.

I don't understand why people call FC boring. Trails in the Sky isn't about explosions and awesome action-packed scenes of carnage. if you can't even handle the prologue of FC then you don't deserve to enjoy the action in SC. It is all part of learning about the world, the characters, and becoming invested in the story.

>there's actually a cutcsene of wedding ceremony of that couple which asks you to retrieve their ring from crow's nest during the earlier chapter
This game has fucking everything.
I've been running around the country in ch.8 for like 7 hours now and i don't think i've seen all unique optional content it has to offer.
100% this game will require consulting guide every two seconds.
>>
>>315703423
I'm starting my second playthrough now. Just got done with the prologue in le locle. I picked Agate this time since last time I picked Shera.

The optional and hidden sidequests seem to begin in Ruan, so I expect to be consulting a guide frequently from here on out, yeah. I'm gonna try to get to A or A+ rank..
>>
>>315703682
Good luck with that without a solid guide, anon. Even the only gamefaqs faq certainly lacks some things not to mention that it doesn't have locations of top quartz and other missable shit.
>>
>>315703423
Anon,if you replay FC you'll see that one of the victims of the hijack in Bose was in his first travel at that time.
In SC you find him afraid as fuck of another hijack in the your travel to Ruan.
>>
>>315703423
Attention to detail is one of the specialties of the series.
>>
>>315704512
Meh, I'll see what I can do. Worst comes to worst I'll fail and then play it a third time when someone bothers to make a full BP guide. I love this game so the idea of playing it three times doesn't bother me at all. I beat FC like seven times, and I love this game even more than that, so..yeah.

Trails' and Ys' soundtracks can barely be compared to be honest, the series are antithesis of each other. Trails is more calm, slow and Ys is about highly-paced action, and the OSTs reflect that. Even the soundtracks for the boss fights in Trails remain pretty calm, except maybe this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ok9bzDzaS0

That being say I still prefer Ys Seven's or I's soundtrack (or even Dawn of Ys) over anything in the kiseki series, so you should listen to these if you want good Falcom soundtracks.

Is there a time limit for the quests?
>>
>>315705074
Ayy my main man.

For some, in the Bracer Guild you will see quests with short and long time limits
>>
>>315705502
Yes.
>>
>>315705502
The "time limit" is progressing the main story too much, you'll know then depending on term time, long means it's avaliable for a long while, maybe even the entire chapter, medium will last a few story progressions and short should be done now and try not to advance the story or else it's lost.
>>
>>315705502

Yes, you should try to complete them as soon as possible. If you progress in the story, they will become unavailable..
>>
>>315705763
Oh and obviously, by completing, I meant:
>Talk to the guy who made the request
>Do what is necessary
>Once you're done, report back to the guy

Then it will be done. If you don't completely finish the quest but progress a bit in the story, you could lose the reward. Like this guy said >>315705721 short have to be done really quickly, as soon as you see them.

Agate's and Tita's interactions in SC are adorable
