For Those Who May Want Level Recommendations VERSION 3 *spoilers*

#1SavenForeverPosted 3/5/2007 6:50:40 PMmessage detail
Well, here is the new version of this list that I promised. I hope that it is still helping people out. There isn’t much added to this version. I tried to organize this list a little bit better. There are still no Side Quests level recommendations yet.

Also, I hope that I am not annoying anyone by making new versions of this topic.

If you are unfamiliar with this topic then let me explain about it a little: Back in January, I posted a topic for those who may have wanted level recommendations. I've decided to repost this topic again and make version 2 to celebrate the release of the PAL version and to help out the new players of FFXII (and everybody else). I've changed a couple of things since the first version. I will try to get this topic bumped everyday so that everybody will hopefully see this, and I will hopefully make better versions of this topic later on. Well, here it is:

When I played through this game, I typed what levels I was at for helping people and for future references. I beat this game back in November and I still haven't posted this yet. But anyways, this is what levels that I was at throughout the game and hopefully these levels may help some people who might need help with this game and need a level recommendation for a point in the game. Well, here is my level recommendation for those who may need it. Hope it helps (and sorry if I may have repeated myself).

PLEASE READ THIS: If anyone wants to help out and put in their level recommendations (mainly for the side quest part of the game), go ahead and post it if you want.

NOTE: I do tend to over level just a bit; so some of these levels might be ridiculous (mainly in the beginning).

NOTE: This is based on the NTSC US version of the game, so I’m not sure if there are any changes made between this version and any other version of this game in terms of difficulty or any other changes (Though I doubt it).

NOTE: As I have already warned in the topic title, there are spoilers in this level guide that you may want to not want to know yet (ex. I have already spoiled who the Final Boss is in this list and you might not want to know that), so be cautioned.

NOTE: There might be some errors in this list, but I am pretty sure that it is as error-free as it possibly can be.

NOTE: So far I only have level recommendation for the Main Story part of the game. I apologize for those who want level recommendations for the Side Quests for the game, but I hope that some people will give out their level recommendations for the Side Quests part of the game sometime.

*: This means who was in my current party at a point in the game.
(G): This means that this is a guest member.
BOSS: Boss Fight and the level recommendations for that.
(99): Level
+ This means that this person is helping you out in battle but isn’t in your party

SPOILERS: Yes, I know that some of these characters that are listed as guest members will eventually end up as a permanent party member, I am listing those characters as guests since they are labeled as guests at that point in the game. And I know that some of these names are “wrong”. I am listing those names since they are called by those names at that point in the game.

NOTE: Some people say that my level recommendations for fighting these bosses are a little low. Though you can beat the game at these levels, you may want to consider leveling up just maybe 3-5 more levels and these bosses might be a little easier for you.

SIDE QUESTS:

None, yet… (sorry)

Good job man. I myself has lots of trouble at the beginning because I was underleveled... It took about ten hours for me to realize that even if the enemy is three levels ahead, three little, insignificant levels ahead, it could beat the hell out of me. So, thanks for helping people out who are just like me when I first started.
