I think I gotta fight Ghis soon. I just freed Ashe from the cell and now the ship is on alert. I'm just grinding in the hallway near the save crystal

Ghis wasn't that bad... I just kinda hung back and had Vaan keep healing everyone while Basch knocked Ghis around.

Vaan doesn't seem too interesting but I like the supporting cast

He was shoehorned in at the last second to appeal to the Japanese audience who don't mix well with characters like Basch, who was going to be the actual MC. Vaan is an example of XII's shaky development.

I haven't had much time to play, having just escaped the Barheim Passage, but I still feel like I can chime in on the job system. I do think it's a pretty clever system that forces you to own up to your decisions but it could use some improvements.

The number one thing they could do is still give every character a set of basic abilities from every job on their license board and build the job specific board around that. I gave Penelo White Mage because IIRC she has the best overall magic potency and I don't want to double up on jobs so I gave Vaan Bushi, Balthier Red Battlemage, and Fran Foebreaker, and I'll be giving Basch Knight. However I now don't have access to cure, meaning I'm incredibly reliant on potions until I get Penelo back.

I know they're not expensive and I could farm plenty of gil to buy a stack of 99, but they're only good if the HP of a party member is around 300, once it starts to go higher they're more of a liability and I had to keep switching up my gambits in the Barheim Passage from "Pop a potion at 70%" to 60%, and now it's at 50%. And Hi-Potions are significantly more expensive than regular potions. Having some basic black and white magic shouldn't be too much of a demand, especially with all my characters having licenses for increased MP and magic potency but no spells to use them on. Just seems like a flawed waste really.

I mean I could give Vaan White Mage as his secondary but I want him to use Green Magic for buffs during endgame.

I just kinda gave jobs to people at random. Vaan is my White Mage, Ashe uses Hammers and Penelo uses poles...

So Vaan is my white mage... Looking at stats, the Healing Rod only has 2 more in magick power than the Mythril Blade, should I keep the blade on so he can still defend himself?

Holy shit did they ever nerf Judge Ghis. I literally OHK'ed him with a single Quickening Chain.

Yes, whatever magick power he would have lacked you can make up for in magick potency licenses.

Alright, sweet. I just found Dispel lying in a chest, coolstuff. How the fuck do you even use quickenings? I have them, I just have NO clue what to do.

Quickenings are under the "Mist" command in combat. Performing one starts a short animated attack exclusive to that character and depletes your mist charge by whatever level attack it is. While your character is performing the Quickening, a minigame at the bottom of the screen starts where you can use the triangle, square, and circle button on your controller to have another party member use their Quickening as well creating a chain. If none of them are available you have a certain amount of time to shuffle the chances with the R2 button so you can perform more. Successfully doing a chain of three or more creates an additional animated attack that deals extra damage to the enemy.

Ooo sweet. I just beat Belias and chained together 3, was mashing R2 on the last one and nothing happened.

I've just unlocked the second license board, what do you reccommend?

I recommend giving Vaan Bushi, but other than that you can easily make the characters whatever jobs you want them without worrying about min-maxing. I've been told the game is easily platinumable with almost any setup. If you have a preferred three characters for a main party though, giving one of them access to Red Battlemage is mandatory though because a lot of green magick is necessary for endgame. And if you plan on giving Time Mage to anybody, couple that person with Vaan so they can cast Berserk on him for boss fights/hunts.

Shite, I didn't give anyone Red Battlemage. Do I gain any more party members later on?

Pretty good setup. Unfortunately I won't be able to do all 12 jobs because I made both Penelo and Ashe WHM. I made Penelo WHM first and when she left the party I had to rely entirely on potions and hi-potions until I got her back. When I got to the Dreadnaught Leviathan I was completely out of both items and Gil and I desperately needed a healer until I could get Penelo back so I was forced to give WHM to Ashe despite wanting her to go Ulahn.
