  1. No Erk means no anima magic until Chapter mid 20s. (Unless you REALLY like Priscilla)

    However, Erk has a high potential for being RNG screwed while Pent is almost guaranteed to be good.

    He also has a handy Staff rating.

  1. Erk has a higher stamina, but Pent's final smash is more powerful

  2. If raised, Erk beats Pent statwise IMO.

    However, Pent's strong point is that he can use high-level staves from the start. something Erk and Nino will (almost) never be able to do. It all comes down to whether you love Physic staves that much, or not.

  3. My erk has speed maxed out
    but pent and louise together are almost unstopable.

  4. Pent's better than Erk overall, but in the end, a well-trained Nino is better than both Erk and Pent.

  5. Personally I believe that leveling up Erk makes him better than Pent. In actuality a leveled up Erk and Pent are pretty equal so its more of a preference choice but I presonally liked Erk better.

  7. Pent is a stable character but if your erk is at Pent's level when you got Pent, chances are Erk will have better stats than Pent. Though you'll need to train Erk's staff weaponry for it to weird high level staffs.

  8. I didn't use it, never cared for Pent either, I trained Nino she turned out better than both (Non staff wise)

  9. Pent is better than Erk but Nino is by far the best when trained

  10. Train Erk until you get to Pent, at that point compare their stats. Use the better until you get to Nino. Overall, Erk has more potential.

  11. Wow...so many different answers. I'll try to help.

    One thing I know for sure is if you Lundgren abuse Erk, you can fly through the first half of the game, which is cheating essentially, but very useful when you are doing repeated runs.

  12. Okay, for some reason aforementioned users are missing the point. They all say "Oh you have no anima user till mid 20's" or "Erk has slightly better stats".

    Here is the crux of it.

    In a HHM ranked run Pent absolutely dominates Erk (Even in a non ranked/Hnm/enm/whatevermode/ run)
    Mainly because you don't have many guiding rings. At all. You have two iirc without secret shops, which kill your funds rank. So you probably want one for Lucius, your best light magic user, and probably a healer most likely Prissy because she has a horse.

    So there they go, too bad for erk, he can no longer promote. But Pent comes in already a sage. So Pent>Erk.

    Also you could just use erk until you get pent then swap them over?
