Which familiar to use

Certain familiars are better against certain types of bad guys. Do you base which is best based on the moon, star symbol thing each familiar has or is there something else that decides who is best to take on a bad guy?

I pretty much ignored all that astrological symbols crap and just went with a diverse range of familiars with the best stats who could specialize in different areas. No matter the situation or what the enemy was weak to (physical, magical, or elemental), I had someone that could stomp it.

Astral symbols was a pointless addition to the complexity of this game imo.

Is there a way to see what the enemy is weak against? Just started playing

Not till after you fight it or if drippy tells you. Its not too hard to guess based on what the enemy looks like or what kind of spells it uses though. Most times the weaknesses and strengths are common sense.

Cheers. Its good going into a fight not sure on the tactics you need to use, and having to work them out mid fight. All boss fights so far seem to be like that

The star signs can be pretty important in combat, particularly when you enter a new area with tougher enemies. It's worth remembering them, and deploying your familiars accordingly.

It's not absolutely necessary to worry about signs, but if you do, at the very least your party will be healing less, using fewer consumables and getting more glims.
