If you want a walkthrough, I would recommend K. Megura's Mini-FAQ. This FAQ will address the human character, who I believe to be potentially the most powerful member of your team. First, humans, mutants, and monsters are all fun and rewarding characters in this game. You probably should not limit yourself. But the most powerful party possible is probably four humans. With this party, I have killed Creator before he even gets to attack. The methods you use to improve your human are a little unconventional, so I'm going to explain how to get the most for your money. ======================================================================= ========================Improving your human=========================== Humans do not get stronger as a result of battle. Instead, they have to buy potions to raise their attributes and HP. There are five items that improve the human. Strength Potion: This item costs 300 and raises a human's strength by 2. Agility Potion: This item costs 300 and raises a human's agility by 2. HP200: This item costs 100 and raises a human's HP by up to 20, unless HP is already above 200. Then it only raises by 1. HP400: This item costs 1000, and is the same as HP200, but it works up to 400 HP. HP600: This costs 10,000, and works up to 600 HP. Use the HP items to raise your HP. If money is an issue (i.e. early in the game) you should save before you use it. Try to get at least 15 HP out of it. HP600 is not worth the money. It costs less money to buy HP200 over and over. Still, it is faster if you can afford HP600. I recommend buying a few HP200's on the first world. On the second, get your HP up to at least 400. After that, go wild. The limit is not 999 HP. That is the most that can be displayed, but the limit is much higher. My guess would be 2047, since I know it can go over 1023. I've never had the patience to count that high. Use the Strength and Agility potions to make your human more deadly in combat. These raise the stat 2 per use. These stats max out at 255, even though 99 is the most that can be displayed. Be careful, they wrap back to 1 if you go over. I don't recommend counting, instead, just save every once in a while, and reset once you wrap. The power of a human with 255 strength and 254 agility is amazing to behold. The first time you can afford many of these potions is on the second world. I recommend specializing in agility to begin with, since it effects both your chance to hit, and your damage with the saber, and similar weapons. Later, you will want to work on strength too, as the strength based weapons eventually get much more powerful than the agility weapons. ======================================================================= ========================Equipping your human=========================== One of the best features of humans is that they can hold 8 items. This means they can hold 4 pieces of armor without sacrificing weapons. Always get the best armor available, even before buying stat potions. In the end game, you probably don't want the ParaSuit. You can get nearly the same defense with the other armor you can buy, and the Dragon armor will protect you from many spells. You can get even better defense from the armor in the final tower. Humans don't use spells. Well, they can, but only if you equip the shoe, which you don't get until late, and even then they suck at it. That means they stick to weapons and potions. There are 3 main types of weapons, strength, agility, and projectile. All three types use agility to hit, but strength weapons do damage based on strength, agility based on agility, and projectiles do fixed damage. Humans can also equip shields. Shields are not used automatically, but instead must be used to defend instead of a weapon. For this reason, they aren't very good. They have two uses. Some shields protect the whole party from certain spells. The shield user must go before the spell is cast for this to work. Also, the user has a chance to evade attacks in the round the shield is used. I don't recommend the shield, but if you must use it, give it to a human. Try to find a shield that says, "A barrier covers the party" when you use it. Give it to the highest agility human you have and put them in the front. They will be hard to hit, and will protect the rest of the party from spells. Early on in the game, focus on improving agility. This means you want mainly agility weapons. Get the rapier on the first world, the saber on the second, and the l-saber on the third. But also carry a projectile weapon. Rocks are very good for the price. And projectile weapons always do about the same damage, even against enemies with very high defense. Later, get the best strength weapon you can. Still carry a projectile weapon for those pesky high defense monsters. When the Ice, Thunder, and Flame swords are available, get one, but make sure you have another weapon in case the monsters are strong against your element. If you have multiple humans, give each a different element. Thunder tends to be the best of the three. At the very end, the Glass Sword and the Excalibur are your best friends. The Excalibur can take out a whole group if your strength is 255. And the Glass Sword does unmatched damage. The Sun Sword is probably the next best, and it gets critical hits on undead, and even some bosses. If you have extra slots, equip the best potion you have. You shouldn't need them during battle that often, but they don't hurt. ======================================================================= ==============================Copyright================================ As usual, feel free to do whatever with this FAQ as long as you don't change it, make money off it, or delete this notice.
