Inb4doingitwrong. But I'm planning out a gen 1 only Apo run, so they're kind of the best choices by far. I might also give another Peg Knight user Rally Speed as a backup, but man, it's much harder to make rallybots when the most valuable normal rally (Speed) is shared only by the ~5 best characters for postgame (everyone with Galeforce). --- "When playing a game, the goal is to win, but it is the goal that is important, not the winning." -Reiner Knizia
Shadowgift is so bad that even All Stats +2 is better.
Sorcerer w/ All Stats +2 > Sage w/ Shadowgift
We all have our opinions. I just clearly have a different style in my strategies. --- My 3DS Friend Code: 2234-7562-4561 (Aeu) Being young doesn't mean you should underestimate me!... You can but shouldn't.

You don't understand. It's not an opinion; it's fact. Stat caps are numerically better.

You can't argue your way out of this one.
Arguably, yes you have a point. I'm more of the person who values staff access and stuff here. Numerically better, yes, but my point is my strategy is different. --- My 3DS Friend Code: 2234-7562-4561 (Aeu) Being young doesn't mean you should underestimate me!... You can but shouldn't.
I'm expecting someone to make the insane "take more damage, heal more with vengeance" argument soon. That one's always hilarious, as it shows the person totally misses the point of being a tank.
Also All Stats +2 is pretty okay. It's not amazing but it's more than okay. Shadowgift being worse doesn't say much, although Shadowgift is pretty terrible, considering everyone that can get it (which is an extremely limited pool) gets Sorceror, which has it's insane caps. --- "When playing a game, the goal is to win, but it is the goal that is important, not the winning." -Reiner Knizia
For the record, All Stats +2 is important for breaking thresholds. It shouldn't be used in this particular manner. I'm just showing that even this build is better than Sage w/ Shadowgift. Used this way, both of a waste of a skill slot.
Sage w/ 5th slot >= Sorcerer w/ 5th slot >= Sorcerer w/ All Stats +2 > Sage w/ Shadowgift --- This sentence is as meaningless as you.
AI prioritizes damage over anything logical and doesn't account for skills that don't affect hard stats. SG Sage has 29(39 with LB) hard DEF. Carries around Nosferatu, Pavise. Dancer Olivia has 29/39 as well, but can equip Ragnell.
Enemy will target Morgan to kill themselves (and due to Nos, doesn't do anything to Morg) and leaves Olivia alone. Obviously doesn't work on Apo, but no form of Nosfertanking does. --- http://i.imgur.com/hbgVYTg.png http://i.imgur.com/xZMtLvX.gif
I thought about that and using a different couple but in the end...Pretty much this. --- R ~ Official Beth of the SMTIV board, Official Caitlin of the PX board, Official Cherche of the FEA board, The_Sol_Blader's loving wife http://fav.me/d5g7w6l
