I started as Assassin too and until you start getting faster and leveling up faster your MC can die super easily, which is a problem since all missions ends when s/he dies. I eventually switched him to Sniper so I didn't have to get close to ppl lol.
Me (Assassin) Toren, Fiona, 2x Sniper, 1x LK, 1x WS, 1x Dancer or Bard
:D I've heard about the OP Champ map clearing and don't want it~
Your party is quite good but in the same time bad in the low level of a SinX they are really thin and he/she your HERO so if he/she dies it's over. But after few grinding. SinX are the one of the strongest in your party next to a Pure Dex Sniper(Even though Champs are good in global attack they have a really bad in the matter of player's turns).
Make your own champ and priest too because after you finish Toren Militia Faction I know your going to play the other factions and in playing other faction other main character will be remove for awhile in your playthrough(but if you really want them finish all factions and finish the True End)
@Lucius2 Ah i see, but i feel it's a bit hard to use clown and dancer since both of their songs mostly only affects 3x3 range :/
Oh and what build does your WS has? I have whitesmith in my party with full agi, just so that he can buff my knights and assassins quickly..
WS are strong characters they are between Support and Attacker if their stats are allocated properly. Their damaged is near to the damaged of a LK.
What's harder? Playing in the hardest mode in the game or having a materialistic girlfriend?
