Aside from being likely the best in the game character/story-wise, I find that he's also a beast to control if you get used to him. He creates FoFs on his own pretty often as well, and that's always good, especially for my play-style. --- A culture's teachings, and most importantly, the nature of its people, achieve definition in conflict.

I don't use him all that often unless I want to initiate his Hi Ougi, but when I do I always wonder why I bother getting him the cool or funny looking weapons, seeing as how I barely get to see them during battles. I've seen Jade Solos, though, and I agree that he is a beast on his own, never mind the whole creating FoF on his own. Leveled he can take anything down.

He was my 4th solo character for a playthrough (1st luke, then guy, then anise, jade, next tear and finally natalia). He has a few nice combos that can be set up, but for the most part his key strength is creating FoFs with 2 mid-spells and then activating them with another mid-spell for a high spell (and in the time it would take for him to cast two very high spells, if uninterrupted). It worked wonders during the 3-bosses-at-once fights. --- http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v224/moxillaq/143295be.jpg http://emmyc.com/HOTINHERE.gif

He was one of the few times I enjoyed playing a caster in a Tales Of game, oddly enough. --- Voltron had cats for arms. So when he punched you, you got mauled by cats. - Cereburus Q Rhaeme made me lol irl --- lalak

Jade is my favorite to use once I started playing as him 1/3rd of the game. Once I learned to use him correctly, boss battles became a breeze.

i like using everyone in this game. Jade is cool with his FoF changes. i wish they had just given him one more base arte. his array of spells is always fun.

Yep he's the best. I use Guy to get mass combos and kill them off with Jade.

The only tales of game where I controlled a Mage is Meredy/Keele in Eternia and only then to use Blue Earth (full maxwell extension) for a free 100,000 exp.
Else I find mages totally boring to control in battle.

For once I agree with Vegh. Mages are boring as hell to use in this series.
I'm not really a mage kind of guy in general. I much prefer brute force and/or swords and such.

Aside from his specialty as a caster, his melee FOFs r just.....boss looking. If the Ai could do 2nd playthrough hi ougi, i wouldnt have touched Jade at all. i guess thats the plus side of limited AI. (?) --- MMSF3:BA FC : 056 049 380 666
