What are the best weapons for these characters?

#1InnerSolacePosted 8/19/2011 2:58:18 PM
Locke
Terra
Celes
Edgar
Sabin
Cyan
Shadow
Setzer
Mog

It can be a combination of Relic setups (like Genji Glove + Master's Scroll), or something else. However, I would like to gun right for Kefka's Tower after a little while of leveling. I've been doing so many extra things in this game, I just want to finish the story already (to which I will probably be getting the things I skipped out on during a future playthrough).

Locke:
Valiant Knife,
Paladin/Aegis/Elemental/Genji Shield
Red Cap
Genji Armor/Force Armor.
Master's Scroll & Muscle Belt (Valiant Knife's damage boost is unhampered by Master's Scroll, Red Cap and Muscle Belt will pump it's damage capacity)

Terra&Celes:
Enhancer
Force/Aegis/Genji Shield
Mystery Veil
Minerva Bustier
Ribbon & Soul of Thamasa...or maybe Prayer Beads?

Edgar:
Holy Lance
Paladin/Aegis/Elemental/Genji Shield
Royal Crown
Genji/Force Armor
Dragon Horn & Dragoon Boots

Sabin:
Tigerfang
Paladin/Aegis/Elemental/Genji Shield
Circlet
Red Jacket
Earring & Hero Ring

Cyan: ...? WHAT!!!...ok fine just slap a set of Imp Gear on and turn him into a Dragoon, useless waste of pixels.

Shadow:
Thief's/Assassin's Knife
Paladin/Aegis/Elemental/Genji Shield
Circlet
Genji Armor
Earring & Hero Ring

Setzer (Do not put in same party as Locke):
Fixed Dice
Paladin/Aegis/Elemental/Genji Shield
Circlet
Force/Genji Armor
Master's Scroll & ...maybe a Ribbon? (Fixed Dice's damage is unhampered by Master's Scroll)

Mog:
Holy Lance
Paladin/Aegis/Elemental/Genji Shield
Genji Helm/Circlet
Snow Scarf
Dragon Horn & Boots
(255 DEF w/ Paladin Shield he's near invincible)

Why is Edgar using the Royal Crown?

Its a bad equip. The defensive boost over Circlet is minor, and Circlet gives higher Strength (By 1!), and 3 more Magic Power (matters for random Holy.) Royal Crown is better off used at Colosseum and turned into one of the very few Genji Helms in the game.


Also, I'd add Swordbreaker to Shadow, preferably over Assassin even; +2 Magic Power from Assassin's Knife is kind of meh compared to the evasion boost of Swordbreaker.


For any of those set ups that have "Maybe Ribbon" or something, just say "Filler." Easier that way, cause you're clearly not aiming for a specific set up, so something filling in that gap that is generically useful like a Hero Ring is never a bad idea. Ribbon falls under that category of "generically useful" because there's few set ups that actually demand it, and very few cases where its NOT a good equip.


Also, for Setzer, don't be afraid to try this set up:

Fixed Dice
Tortoise Shield
Saucer
Reed's Cloak
Master's Scroll
Black Belt

Makes him a damned tank to magic and physicals that hits hard (Fixed Dice ignores Imp penalties), Black Belt compliments this by giving him extra turns, and half the status effects in the game become meaningless under Imp (Berserk becomes a POSITIVE status in this case.) Downside of course is Setzer cannot use magic to heal with or some such.


If you want more info, check my Character FAQ. Yes, it involves Dragon's Den stuff, but I noted other noteworthy equips for the character as well, specifically to be used prior Dragon's Den. So if Terra has a magic set up using Apocalypse, you can sub in Enhancer and get a lot of the same benefits, for example.

#7MeepleLardiclePosted 8/26/2011 3:22:48 PM
Gau

Thunder Shield - Impartisan - Dueling Mask - Snow Scarf - Giga's Glove - Black Belt - Fenrir/Cactuar


Impartisan LOWERS Gau's attack. Only reason to give him it is if you're making him an Imp or Genji Gloving him, neither are worth it.

Sabin

God Hand - GodHand - Genji Helm - Red Jacket - Genji Glove - Miracle Shoes - Golem


Sabin does generally more damage with Phantom Rush than with Genji Glove set ups. A lot more. Unless you're overleveled.

Edgar

Zantetsuken - Aegis Shield - Genji Helm - Genji Armor - Hyper Wrist - Miracle Shoes - Raiden


Umm...er...you are using 5 Lightbringers and don';t give one to Edgar, and he's not using a Dragoon Set Up? REALLY?

Locke

Lightbringer - Paladin's Shield - Genji Helm - Genji Armor - Master's Scroll - Brigand's Glove - Phoenix


one of the biggest wastes of the Master's Scroll ever; Master's Scroll should NEVER be paired with the Lightbringer. It actually LOWERS its damage (Unless you're ridiculously high), not raises it.

Terra

Lightbringer - Lightbringer - Oath Veil - Genji Armor - Celestriad - Genji Glove - Maduin


Minerva Bustier > Genji Armor...by a lot. Mystery veil > Oath veil. Celestriad on a set up with Genji Glove feels counterproductive, and besides, its not erally useful; Osmose makes MP meaningless, better giving her something defensive (Prayer Beads gets her really close with the 2 equips I mentioned to 128/128, for example) or a Hero Ring or something.

Strago

Stardust Rod - Aegis Shield - Circlet - Behemoth Suit - Soul of Thamasa - Miracle Shoes - Diabolos


Magus Rod > Stardust Rod.

Setzer

Final Trump - Fixed Dice - Genji Helm - Genji Armor - Genji Glove - Miracle Shoes - Bahamut


I'd give him the Master's Scroll personally.

Relm

Angel Brush - Genji Shield - Cat-Ear Hood - Behemoth Suit - Memento Ring - Miracle Shoes - Lakshmi


Magus Rod > Angel Brush.

Cyan

Zanmato - Zanmato - Genji Helm - Genji Armor - Genji Glove - Miracle Shoes - Alexander/Gilgamesh


I...have nothing to say about this set up toher than its a ***** to get a 2nd Zanmato, and really, you like Genji Glove a little TOO much.

Mog

Gungnir - Genji Shield - Circlet - Snow Scarf - Dragon Horn - Dragoon Boots - Valigarmanda/Midgardsormr


Gungnir does not work with Dragon Horn + Dragoon Boots like other Lances, make it Radiant Lance.

Gogo

Scorpion Tail - Force Shield - Circlet - Mirage Vest - Hero's Ring - Miracle Shoes - Mimic - Tools - Lore - Items


Tools and Lore? Really? Magic > Both skillsets hands down, and at least Blitz AND Throw are notably better than Tools.
Also, Magus Rod > Scorpion Tail.

Shadow

Kagenui - Oborozuki - Genji Helm - Genji Armor - Genji Glove - Miracle Shoes - Crusader


So...we only have one Oborozuki but you're usnig 2 Zanmatos, even though Oborozuki is clearly the better equip and Shadow's better suited for losing a shield? I'm confused...

Celes

Lightbringer - Lightbringer - Oath Veil - Genji Armor - Genji Glove - Master's Scroll - Quetzalli


LIGHTBRINGER + MASTER'S SCROLL IS A BAD IDEA!!!
Also, see Terra on Armor and Helmet.

This is the best answer I've ever seen on this forum.
#10shinra35800Posted 8/29/2011 7:17:03 PM

@MeepleLardicle:

I like to equip my people with things that fit their personality. And with my setup, every character can make it to Kefka and beat the game without any other party members by themselves. So with that said, how can anything i say be a bad equip xD. Esper buffs are there for a reason and i've used all of my levels very wisely.

gau: his attack power is 255 with it so it really doesn't matter. you can equip things during battle so yeah, i do put imp stuff on him just because of his dad calling him a monster xD. I didn't want the imp outfit to go to waist. Even though he is very powerful with the setup i have now.

sabin: he is a fighting character so I made him use both his hands.

edgar: he has always reminded me of a human version of odin. so i gave him his super weapon found in the extra dungeon. killing characters by cutting them in half is > lightbringer xD.

locke: doesn't matter, he's still a beast.

terra: she's half esper so i gave her mp usage for free. not only does all her spells make her do 9999 damage mostly she can also deal that much with her attacks. and when she transforms, just pure beast.

strago: not really, weapons that boost multiple stats > weapon that boosts 1 stat. wouldnt matter anyways considering he still does 9999 and it is his super final weapon.

setzer: makes me utilize his skills as well as attack rather than just attack.

relm: not when her final brush increases every stat. she too still does 9999 damage so nothing wrong with that.

mog: sure it does. he too can beat everybody in the last area by going in alone. btw, everyone also has every magic spell learned.

gogo: I usually pair gogo up with realm, strago, and shadow because of the similar clothing and/or relation. and strago already has all the magic. so my setup is fine considering he does have the MIME ability...

shadow: weapons were chosen because of something in the story but end the end, still dont matter because they both take 9999, and then you have the dog which takes another 9999.

celes: nope. sure isnt a bad idea. attacks take about 7000+ on strong enemies plus the fact that holy may activate. if an enemy has holy absorb, that's what magic is for. not to mention lightbringer increases most of the stats if not all. either way, when she's done, the enemy is dead. no enemy besides the one in the extra dungeon can withstand her anyway. in the older games, it was atma weapon I used with this setup but that doesnt increase stats so that's why it was left out. I have 6 of those but only use them for dramatic purposes by switches to them in the middle of battle sometimes even though i dont need to.
