I’ve been trying forever to get Caesar, but it isn’t working.
I have Gareth and Aldo in my party when I talk to him between 7PM and 11PM, whilst he’s staring at the fountain; and nothing happens. I’m currently right after choosing human path (I beat it non-human path before), and he just says “All men… must die” whenever I speak to him.
For Kain, just like all the other guild leaders, you need to recruit every other member of Olacion. Still, I like Miranda better. She’s better at offensive, easier to get and while her healing is a tiiiiiiny bit weaker, she can heal status ailments (Kain cannot). Her AI is excellent too, so you can just focus on the offensive and she’ll cover your ass no problem.
Missing Gerald is something that’d warrant a re-play, because you need him for Elwen, and I can’t begin to describe the sheer amount of asswhooping that Elwen can hand out. Remember the fight against her in the non-human path? She’s really THAT strong in your party. The only character who even remotely comes close to her is Lenneth. Also, you need her to get Nyx, another major powerhouse.
As for Alicia Vs. Lily… go with Caesar Seriously, they are both nice, but of the characters you have access to right now, Caesar is one of the best. If you HAVE to choose, Alicia is a bit stronger.
Aidan is a goddamn wuss. If you are training Jack, DO put him in your party AND equip the training device on Jack, you’ll get a 50% EXP bonus (Yes, they are accumulative), but kick him out as soon as you resume playing. Generally speaking, offensive spellcasters suck, the only one really worth the trouble is Curtis and even then there are better people to use than him.
For the record, my party was Jack, Elwen, Nyx and Miranda. After endgame, I replaced Nyx with Lenneth.
Wait, did you only get the invitation? Because to actually enter, you need to sleep until noon, which’ll trigger a whole set of cutscenes, after which you’ll talk with Larks and get your entrance permit back. So go hit the sack if you haven’t done so.
Yeah, Aphelion is tough, but you only really need a healer. Anyway, I was thinking of Post-game strategy, which are the only instances in which you actually need a strategy. No matter how good Jack is, Queen is impossible if you don’t pick your allies right.
I should know, I fought her in the non-human path. What kind of twisted logic makes elves suck at healing?
