Pick the staff. Staff skills are awesome. You get scan a bit later, but damn it is good to have stuns and other combo enders early on xDUgh, I was just going to make a thread - either a KH Final Mix thread or a stats thread. I forget how peculiar the growth paths are in this game. I never really payed any mind my previous runthroughs, but what nets you the best growth stat?
I think I'm going to pick the sword for my Proud playthrough, but what about the questions that Selphie, Wakka and Tidus ask you? What are the appropriate answers? I hear it's a pain to level based on what answer you provide. I could be wrong. I want to know.
ReMIX guide, y u come out so late?
Doing Proud without picking the shield just doesn't feel right to me.If your doing it on Proud, you should pick the shield. Yiu get Leaf Bracer and Second Chance way earlier.
I second this. It's great to have Guard up early at level 15 although at the cost of getting Scan at level 21. Besides, picking the shield eventually gives you 8 item slots compared to 7 and 6 from sword and staff respectively, which can help quite a bit in tight situations.Doing Proud without picking the shield just doesn't feel right to me.
The extra defense is needed, and leaf bracer, guard, and second chance really come in handy.
You're right on that. More MP not only allows more casting of spells, but also prolongs the protective effect of Aero. This is a real boon in the long run. It also makes it way easier to strike Pink Agaricus 100 times.Picking the shield is okay as long as you don't sacrifice the staff. But even though the extra DEF will help you a lot at first, I think the extra MP and magic power from the staff will be of greater use even on Proud mode when you're facing the more difficult bosses.
Oh wow, thanks! I think I will go +staff/-sword and then with dusk/night, since I want my first playthrough to be a 100% one.Pick the staff, drop the sword. It's the only way to go, really. Why? Because it will ultimately give you the strongest Sora. You get two extra MP that cannot be obtained through any other means (and your magic power is relative to your max MP). Many people make the mistake of thinking "I'm a warrior, so I'll go with the sword and probably drop the staff because I'm not really a magic user". Don't. The sword has got the worst bonus stats of all three choices and sacrificing the shield is very unwise (especially at higher difficulty settings).
How you want to level depends on whether you only want to max Sora out or not. Starting at dusk/night will require 100,000 less exp to reach level 100 (at the cost of a slow start). But for a speed-run, dawn/morning is better because your're not likely to have much time to grind.
If you're just planning to march to the end without worrying about grinding or whatnot a la casual gamers, then perhaps... perhaps sword is okay. Granted the stat growth leaves much to be desired and you won't get Leaf Bracer until level whopping 69, but at least it gives you somewhat cool offensive abilities early enough.What would you guys recommend for somebody playing the standard mode? I don't have the game yet but I distinctly remember in one play through where, on the PS2 version that is, I played the game choosing the shield and sacrificing the staff. Perhaps I should do that to the sword instead. I'm one who also sees Scan as an absolutely necessity as well.
