I’m planning on playing FF12 soon so I just bought the official guide, which I’ll proceed to read and takes notes from before I begin playing (I’m not committing the same playing errors I did with Wild Arms 5 again.) However, I have a few questions and I thought I’d ask them here:
First, I want to obtain all the License System (dumb game concept btw) abilities. I want the characters to specialize, in other words, to have one learn White Magic, another Black Magic, etc. distributing everything evenly but without having more than one character learn the same license (exceptions being armors, augmentations and maybe accessories.) I know there are 6 playable characters, so dividing them up shouldn’t be too hard. However, I need to know if all six characters will stay long enough in the party to learn all the Licenses I will assign them, for example: Does Penelo stay in the group enough times to learn all White Magic? Or does she drop off at a certain point and never return? I cannot find this out until I’ve read the whole walkthrough, so I’d like your comments on this now. Specifically, do I have ALL 6 characters in the party by the end?
Along these same lines, I hear the Japan-only version of the game has Job classes (!) If so, what are they, and are they/will they be listed in the FF Compendium?
Also, I just started a RP in the RP Board titled FINAL FANTASY INFINITY that combines elements from all the games in the series, so I invite everyone here to read it, comment or even join it if you like. (OK, that’s not a question, it’s a blatant plug. Sorry. I’ll make it up by checking the guide and posting any FFXII data that the Compendium may be missing later.)
