How does armor and gear work?

#1nazacuckooPosted 4/24/2013 5:35:05 AM
Is this game similar to DQIX as in, when you equip an item of clothing that armor/clothes visually appears on the character? Or do they change clothes when they change class?
Or, are they stuck with one outfit for the entire game?

Also, can you choose which character you use as your avatar to explore dungeons and the overworld?

Only armors that are visible are the costumes in the game, such as Edea's Bravo Bikini and the DLC ones when it comes to equipment. Otherwise, you only see a change in weapons/shields.

And yes, you can have whoever you want on the field. I went the entire game running around as Ringabell, but you have to swap them to the first party slot.

Oh ok, thanks. Anyone know how many costumes there are? Are there many?

Freelancer DLC (allows everyone to retain their default costumes even when having another class equipped)
Onion Knight DLC (Tiz)
Knight DLC (Agnes)
Shrine Maiden costume (post-game costume award) (Agnes)
Edea Oblige (BDPB) DLC (Edea)
Bravo Bikini (obtained in the first time completing the Red Mage subquest) (Edea)
Noble Composer DLC (Ringabell)

That should be the entire list. Japanese-wise, you won't be able to get any of those at this point beyond the in-game ones or if someone has an unused code that they're willing to part ways with -- Unless if Square decided to be merciful and grant other ways to get them, I'd only be interested in Edea and Ringabell's DLC costumes.

I'd imagine they'll make some of those costumes preorder bonuses overseas and/or distribute them down the line on the e-shop.

Hmm. So most of them are DLC outfits? But each class has its own outfit, right?
