I still find my characters very effective and I only follow builds for Angelo and Jess in this topic (even then, I follow them fairly loosely). Just because you choose not to use the builds described here doesn't mean your characters will be ineffective. However, these builds are much much better than those in the current sticky and I, therefore, commend TheTrueBZ on creating such a topic and hope that it will soon replace the other sticky.

Well, I'm certainly glad I listened to you. I just got to the Ruined Abbey and Yangus learned Thin Air. At this point in the game, I have to say this ability is a little overpowered, considering it deal 35-40 damage per hit and the local baddies average about 50 HP. I can't believe that the other skill FAQ disregards Fisticuffs. >_>
I'm debating whether to have Yangus learn Thin Air, or Jessica. Jessica has more MP, but it would mean sacrificing growth in Sex Appeal (assuming that I also focused on Staff and the requisite 23 in Whip as well). What's the general consensus? Does Yangus have enough MP to use it on a regular basis? Is it more worthwhile to have Yangus get it so Jessica can focus on Sex Appeal?
