I have 240 MP left, any suggestions?

#1kryptonianbloodPosted 4/6/2013 5:10:00 PM
NO SPOILERS yet, I have not actually started the game yet, only beat XIII earlier today.

So I decided I would at some point want to buy all the story related DLC so I went ahead and did that. I also bought the Beachwear for Serah because I'm a perv(if only I could have got that for Vanielle.....)


Anyways I have 240 MP left. From what I was able to read without getting any spoilers I understand that the weapons are all useless compared to things I can find in-game.

So what should I spend the remaining 240 on in your opinions? perhaps a Colosseum match? If so which? Can I afford OMEGA? If I can is he hard enough to make it worth getting, because I wouldn't want him in party in the first place, it would be for the fun of the fight.


Would the lightning Colosseum match let me actually have her a party member, as in switch her and noel out, change her weapons, accessories and so forth, or would she just be a non-controllable monster in a human skin unable to switch out of ravager role?


Perhaps an outfit for Noel?

What do YOU suggest?

Im about halfway through my very first runthrough of the game and evey dlc opponent can wipe me out in 20 seconds flat. Don't think lack challenge will be an issue for you as they're all basically boss battles.
My advice, start off with puu puu. He's cheap and it's kinda funny to see your characters get swarmed to death by little blue aliens.

And yes, you can get them on your team if you win in the form of a monster summoning crystal.

"All the story related DLC" that would actually be Lightning's Requiem. The Snow and Sazh stuff is kind of neat to have, but doesn't really influence the story in any way - Sazh is a great way to get a ton of Casino Coins, though!

From what I recall, the Battle Pack (Omega + Outfit for Sera and Noel) costs 640 MP, so you can't afford that. I'd suggest getting the Lightning-Amodar DLC, it's a fun fight, even post-game it can be somewhat a challenge and you get RAV Lightning, the best RAV in the game if you count DLC.

If you really want a challenge, get the Jihl DLC. She's a superb SAB monster - I never use them, see no point in them - and she is quite a challenge, no matter when you fight her.

Technically, all DLC battles can be done after you have completed Chapter 3, if you have a decent Crystarium Build (Look up a FAQ on that!) and good monsters.

In terms of outfits for Noel, well, the Enzo Cloak is pretty cool looking. The N7 armor is also... the black mage outfit is sort of nostalgic, but it looks to me like he's wearing his boxers over his pants, which looks kind of weird.

You could also save the MP and get some more at another time to get a DLC you can't obtain right now.

get the 2 story dlcs and all the battle dlcs. These dlcs give u monsters, expand the story, and enable you to farm certain things more easily like certain tier 5 monster materials and monsters that were exclusive in the main game like chichu and golden chocobo.

if u really like the costumes u can get them as well. they are all pretty decent looking.

Thanks for the responses. I think I'm leaning toward the lightning collisium battle, but hell, might go for ultima instead. I do miss fighting some ultima.

EZIO....lol never understood how people get that wrong :D

Ezio outfit is actually my favorite and imo, the best looking outfit for Noel you can get. N7 armor looks weird on him though. I'm not a fan of tight armors for him. just...weird....N7 Serah however is kinda nice.

I'm not a fan of the beachwear for Serah...I'm not so perverted that I'd love looking at a pixelated bikini on a video game....but to each their own...

I do like the free outfit "Style and Steel", as well as the "White Mage" for Serah. Both look pretty good on her.


For coloseum, I'd go with Lightning/Amodar. Can net you best available in game...and it's lightning in her outfit that isn't kinda lame. Win//Win.

If you are worried about spoilers, DO NOT play Requiem dlc until after you complete the main story.

I have the "excuse" that I never played Assassin's Creed, nor do I really want to. I do recognize the outfit, though. Typical woman, knowing the clothes but nothing else. =P

I guess I'd like the N7 on Noel and Sera more, if it had some kind of headgear as well... minus headgear, it looks kind of like they got painted black and that's it.

The beachwear..... I'm a fan of some of the Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 bathing suits, but mostly the "modest" ones - like the bikini ones with a little ruffle around the edge, even some of the one pieces are nice! This one..... I love the color pink, but here, it's a bit too much....

Style and Steel is cool, although it makes Sera's butt look big. The white mage is neat.... but somehow weird, too. It's like FF X-2 mated with the original design and did another version of the white mage outfit. The one for Yuna in X-2 was neat.

F*ck everything. The only thing worth getting is Lightning's Requiem, Snow's Battlefield, & Noel's Spacetime Guardian Outfit. You can't control lightning. She would be a monster member of ur party only.

Hate to break it to you, but that information is actually false. Cloudburst is the best Rav in the game.

Hate to break it to you, but you're both right. They are the two best RAVs. In cases that you need the buffs from Friendly Fire, Cloudburst is best. In every other instance where you need maximum chaining & reliability, Lightning is best.
