Etrian Odyssey Megathread
« on: October 28, 2013, 05:41:03 AM »
Well, since Names brought it up in the Cross Effects OC discussion thread, and since there's a new game for the series (Etrian Odyssey Untold: Millennial Girl) coming out, I figured I'd create a thread for it.

So yup, get all your cartography-related, dungeon crawling needs satisfied in here. Since this is a megathread, all the games can be talked about in here at will.

I've played some of 3 and the demo for 4 myself. So then, talk away!

Besides running the forum, I can provide avatars for people as well~
This is my mod voice. ...Most of the time anyway.

I think I played four, imperials and 3ds and what not. Good games albeit hard to find after release

I now proclaim myself god of this thread.

Anyway currently on my third playthrough of the millenium grill, Ronin and Hexer only run on expert. All shop items are there as a handicap, but I started with no money as a handicap to my handicap.

Currently in the second stratum, thanks to abuse of the overhead stance and the linefire attack against fenrir and his goons. Hexer mostly just used medica to keep my Ronin running off of more than just hopes and dreams.

Currently enjoying doing sidequests for more useless shit and exp.

So how about a discussion about game mechanics, party set up and class combos and the character replacement system?

My party that I brought to endgame first time around was F/R, L/B, N/L for front line, and back line was R/M (Just for the subclassing skill points, mostly just used her as a Runemaster) and M/A.

I like runemaster on the Fortress for the rune skills, which add to defensive capabilities, and for that one passive I forgot the name of that can cancel an elemental attack on the line of the skill's owner.

Bushi on the landshark was fairly obvious: Bloodsurge for more damage. So much damage. TOO MUCH DAMAGE.

Landshark on the nightseeker... I have no clue. Maybe the def up for dual weapons skill? Yeah, that sounds likely.

Runemaster medic was, as aforementioned, just for the skill points. Pure runemaster or go home, multiclassing isn't that good for these guys.

Medic/Arcanist was for versatility, and because the circle regen thing was actually affected by the medic's healing boosting skills, making for more effective healing and various binds (My nightseeker handled status, seeing as he got stronger every time he afflicted one) all in one.


Once they all got to level 99 I retired them into their own classes, and I'm switching around builds to see what I can do with them all. I'll try using the five other classes next playthrough.

I have Untold, as Nachos knows. I really like this series, even just having played the one game. :)

Get 4 next, it's possibly the best balanced in the series.

And you get an airship, which is awesome

It's definitely on my list of games to play! I chose Untold by recommendation from you and Laith, but IV had just as good reviews where I searched. :)

That's because IV and Untold, despite many differences in mechanics and storytelling and features and everything, are just as stronk as each other when it comes down to it.

I personally prefer IV because of the many dungeons per map and the unique feel of some of the classes (Arcanist and the last obtained class), but that's just my opinion. It helps that EOIV was my first EO, and the one I got the most into because of it.

Because nothing beats the first time you play a game, and you fuck up your characters and there's no way you can beat this guy aaaaahhhh okay you won but now you have to make it out alive but you only have two members still kicking and no medic oh shit oh shit why didn't I bring an ariadne thread why aaaaaaahhhh okay I made it jesus OH FUCK A DRAGON GEOMAGNETIC PILLAR HERE I GOOOOOOOOOO

And then you never forget your fucking ariadne threads ever again.

I'm sorry, I kinda lost my train of thought there

Doesn't that heal a laughably small amount? Like, 1000?

Just delayed/cross thrust its face in whenever you have the opportunity, and make sure to time it up with the counter pattern so you don't accidentally slap your own shit

And spam fire alch and uber fireshot at all times (Except counter)
