Post by: Milly_of_Lemuria on January 29, 2011, 02:04:09 AM
Felix, Jenna, Ivan, Piers.  I sub in Mia in place of Ivan if I'm in need of heavy healing, though
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Karst on February 02, 2011, 02:01:37 AM
I don't really care for Piers usually...
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Milly_of_Lemuria on February 02, 2011, 03:34:00 AM
See, I'm kinda in love with Piers.  So, I try to keep him in my party constantly.  I also love the psynergy he can use.

In base classes:

Jenna, Isaac, Felix, Mia

In other class setups i keep the two games parties seperate with the class setup:

Wizzard         Chaos Lord          Chaos Lord           Wizzard
Ivan               Isaac                   Garet                     Mia
Sheba            Jenna                   Felix                      Piers

Mine would definitely be Isaac, Jenna, Ivan, and Piers. Here are my reasons too if anybody cares.

Isaac: Overall, definitely the coolest character in the game
Jenna: Garets an obnoxious moron lol, plus Jenna and Isaac all the way
Ivan: The methodical man could create a tornado, literally, lol
Piers: He is truly awesome!

:jenna: as a master, :felix: as a ronin, :sheba: as a beast lord, and :mia: as an angel. SO MUCH HEALING. I personally think it's a pretty solid team.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Ivan Strider on May 10, 2012, 03:42:07 AM
i would have    :isaac:  :jenna:  :mia:  :ivan:

jenna and mia are good for party healing.  i always have jenna and issac together because of relationship.

and ivan completes the circle of elements
Title: Re: Ideal Party

i get confused on the different classes. i can never figure them out.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Star Magician on November 03, 2012, 06:26:38 AM
Easy way to remember- give them 7 of one element of Djinn, then 2 of that character's generic element.

For example: Chaos Lord Felix would be 7 Mars and 2 Venus, Protector Felix would be 7 Mercury and 2 Venus, War Adept Jenna would be 7 Jupiter and 2 Mars, etc.
These classes have overall better stats than the generic classes, but if you want to use Djinn, then it's not as useful because only one Djinn on standby lowers your class.

I find that djinn aren't really that useful towards the end of the games, so I prefer to equip djinn to get the best classes with the best possible stats.

well some djinn has some good abilty,s such a venus djinn (i forgot the name  :gssweatdrop: ) wich stone,s the enemy wich let it past by his next turn

very helpfull against bosses with multpily attacks
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Ivan Strider on November 03, 2012, 07:36:08 PM
djinn have always helped me with final bosses! or maybe thats why i die a lot on them is because i actually use them? what i usually try to do is have two people using summons while the other two use psynergy and attack.

 basically having Felix attack with the Sol Blade. I wonder if there is a stronger blade than the Sol Blade. Most likely not but what if?
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Will on November 03, 2012, 07:55:18 PM
exaculiber (or how that sword is called)
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Nyran on November 03, 2012, 09:20:58 PM
Actually, excalibur only gives an attack boost of 180+ whereas the Sol Blade gives a boost of 200+ The only sword that is stronger is the Darksword, a Cursed Item that is a Longsword that gives a boost of 210+ The only problem is, it has really Crappy unleashes. it is best given to a warrior in the Ronin Class, as they have access to the "Quick Strike" psynergy series.

The Tisiphone Edge actually is the highest-damage-dealing weapon in the game because of its possible triple damage and innate Venus element. Excalibur WOULD be higher if it wasn't a Jupiter weapon.

Here's a look at my Lost Age Team

I like to idea of adding antagonists as a playable option, I would love to throw Saturos in my team. As well as Dodonpa, he is quite shrewd and would resort to extremes to "get the job" done.

However, before I go off track too much, I am a big fan of equipping Sol blade and three Excaliburs to characters. So Isaac, Felix, Garet and Piers/Ivan (with Tomegathericon). (OOO piers infuriates me though he is my least favourite character)
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: CHEESE4ALL on July 30, 2013, 03:10:07 AM
It would be entertaining if, when you finish a game, if you could unlock characters like in FE:SS.  Even if you could only play with them in battle mode or something.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Team Flare Zakk ( Agatio ) on August 18, 2013, 06:31:24 AM
This is a update of my team, I replaced my Beast Lord with Isaac.

The reason why I have this set up is the Psynergy Attacks I can use.

Mia is a duel type, so she can use Pyroclasm as well as Hail Prism and Wish Well.

Dragon Fume, I love this move, and she can heal using her Aura Psynergy, plus I have the Masamune equipped to Jenna so she's there to smash things with a Dragon flame attack, again a duel typing with Mars and Mercury.

Isaac is just there because he's freaken Isaac and Isaac is awesome.

I like to draw the Death Card with Sheba, why, because it's Death Scythe, and Death Scythe rules!

Here's a look at my updated team, Felix, Karst, Agatio, and Alex, they are place holders, just for show, unfortunately I can't use any of them, except Felix of course.

A duel is a fight between two people.

Dual refers to something that actually uses two things (ex: Dual Pistols, Dual Element, etc)

The spelling does, in fact, matter.  Furthermore, Isaac is not his own class.  Please, do be specific.  Also, Karst, Agatio, and Alex are not playable party members.  I don't care if you renamed party memebers, use their real names when discussing them on the forum.  And I know you didn't use a hacked version, because Alex has no battle sprites - so even if you do make such a claim, considering I'm /from/ the GSHC, I can call you on the BS right there, and even then you'd need to be using the vanilla version of GS for this thread.

Also, Death Card is not death scythe.  It deals no damage.  It's just another name for the Condemn spell.  If you want something close to Death Scythe, you need to equip an assassin's blade.  That is the closest analogue to it there is.

Your unhealthy obsession with prox is getting tiresome.  Please stop.

I'm sorry I fell asleep reading your first two sentences where you sounded like my Language Arts teacher, and yes Language Arts was my nap time.

At least I try to have fun with my game, I have my way of playing Golden Sun and if I want to pretend I'm running around with npc bad guys, or that Death Card is Death Scythe, that's up to me, otherwise keeping everything generic is rather boring, just like Language Arts class.

Also a obsession with Prox isn't unhealthy, I don't know why you would think it was and no I won't stop being a Proxian fan, I have every right to be one.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Rolina on August 20, 2013, 04:35:45 PM
...Calling it Language Arts instead of English...

Thank you for revealing that.  It answers quite a lot now.

There is such a thing as taking something to far, and when you're in a thread asking what you think your best team is, and you start making up stuff, you're blatantly betraying the spirit of the topic.  It's fine to be a fan of Prox and the drakes that live there, but when you do it to a point that it annoys the people around you, that's when you need to hold off a bit and consider how other people are reacting.

It means "for the win", and no, Agatio, I rotate my team depending on the fight. That's how I win.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Team Flare Zakk ( Agatio ) on August 23, 2013, 08:40:49 PM
It means "for the win", and no, Agatio, I rotate my team depending on the fight. That's how I win.

You mean like say I'm fighting Dullahan, well of course I'm not going to be able to use my Isaac and three chicks, so I'd have to rotate it accordingly?

For instance with me, I'd use both Felix and Isaac,  because they are both bosses and one of them can spam Sol Blade, then have Mia and Jenna, Mia for attacking and healing, and Jenna just for healing.

Or say I want to rng a certain item, then I'd have to change my team accordingly there as well.

I do change my team depending on what fight I'm in, it's just, well there's no need to for me against random encounters because I can take them with my main 4.

I'm not saying I only use Isaac, Mia, Sheba and Jenna, I'm actually saying I main them.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Lunya on August 24, 2013, 11:28:08 PM
I'm gonna take a guess and say For The Win...

Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Scorpio on August 25, 2013, 12:13:26 AM
You are right about "for the win", my kitty friend.

I've found that TLA's default team works best. (Felix, Jenna, Sheba, Piers.)

I know what the acronym stands for.  It's just that it makes no freaking sense in the context of how he used it.

"Is your team for the win" make no sense.

@Agatio:  Um... why do you have Jenna as a pure healer, and mia as an Attacker/Healer?  Jenna's damage output far exceeds anything Mia can do.  Same with Ivan and Sheba - Ivan's equip options make it so that he can do far more damage then Sheba.  On top of this, Sheba's probably a better option for your second healer, due to her higher luck.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Team Flare Zakk ( Agatio ) on August 27, 2013, 12:27:00 AM
That's a simple question to answer Rolina, it's because I like Mia, so I use her to attack, and sure Jenna can destroy things with Dragon Fume, or simply by attacking, but I prefer Mia over Jenna as a character.

With that said Mia is my favorite playable character, so rather than wasting her as a healer, I like to actually use her for attacking, regardless whether or not Jenna has stronger attack power, it doesn't matter Mia is my favorite character.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Tetsu (Soltur) on August 28, 2013, 10:54:42 AM
I understand the idea of using a character because you like him/her, but if you're wanting to beat a powerful boss such as Dullahan, you need to use strategy. Take him down as quickly as possible. If that means using Mia solely for healing and Jenna for attacking, then do that.

Don't get me wrong, Mia is awesome. Be that as it may, if you want to take a boss down quickly, attack with the one that will wind up having the greater damage output.

That's just my two cents on the issue. I hope you took no offense to anything up there, Agatio.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Star Magician on August 28, 2013, 12:42:02 PM
I'm actually with Agatio on this one. I just used my favorite characters in the ways I wanted to use them, even when taking down bosses. Sure, it was more difficult, but it's more fun doing it that way than exploiting each characters' strengths and playing a game of numbers.
It should also be said that Golden Sun never was a difficult game, and it's easy to get away with playing that way.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Tetsu (Soltur) on August 28, 2013, 01:17:02 PM
That's very true. I guess it just deals more with playing styles than maximum damage output.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Team Flare Zakk ( Agatio ) on August 28, 2013, 05:40:29 PM
Soltur, I understand what you're saying, bosses like Dullahan or the Doom Dragon, I usually have both Felix and Isaac for them, then have Jenna heal and Mia attack and heal.

I have Mia in this duel type adept class called Guru, where she has access to that sweet Pyroclasm psynergy, then she also has Hail Prism and Pure Wish.

Sometimes Mia uses Pure Wish, it depends on whether I need to or not.

I like Sheba and Ivan, but against big bosses, they aren't very useful, what could Ivan and Sheba be used for besides death thotter in these battles?

I have Ivan as a mercury jupiter duel type, but I never knew what to do with that.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Tetsu (Soltur) on August 28, 2013, 06:43:17 PM
My personal style is attack with Isaac and Felix (or Piers or Garet) for the damage output, use supportive Psynergy (High Impact, High Ward, etc) and use Mia for, not Pure Wish, but Wish Well. Hear me out: Less PP and Pure Wish isn't usually needed for my playing style.
Title: Re: Ideal Party
Post by: Team Flare Zakk ( Agatio ) on September 14, 2013, 09:53:01 PM
I changed my team to the perfect setting.

NOBODY TOLD ME JENNA CAN USE KARST'S MOVES!

In the War Adept class, Jenna can use Supernova and Deathscythe.

In exchange for ditching Dragon Fume, I changed Jenna into a War Adept and she is a beast, her attack is 999.

I liked my Beastlord, but I want Isaac, so I changed Isaac to Beast Lord, one of psynergies is Fire Dragon which actually is a pallet swap of the Flame Dragons Karst and Agatio turn into, besides I can't resist quick access to Call Dullahan in the Necromage class.

So I have Mia using Pyroclasm, Freeze Prism and Wish Well in the Guru Class, equipped with the strongest staff possible, Lachesis Rule, I'm thinking of trying to get the item drop from the Fire Dragon though, maybe try that out.

Jenna I have her using Supernova, Deathscythe, and she's equipped with the Masamune for using Rising Dragon.

Isaac is a Beastlord where he can summon things like the Fire Dragon, a Siren, or even switch to Necromage and Call Dullahan, and his equip is the Gaia Blade.

Sheba is just a Pierrot where I just have her playing with her Death Card.

Oh and when I mentioned about Agatio being the leader, I meant Agatio is Felix, what else could I mean?

Sure hacks with character replacements are fun, but I'm starting to really like my team now, all I need is Isaac playable in Super Smash Bros and I'll be happy.

My usual team is the default one for The Lost Age, but when I'm in a boss fight i use this:
 :jenna: ; Judge
 :felix:   ; Protector
 :isaac:  ; Paladin
 :sheba: ; Sorcerer

In the rearguard I have:
 :mia:     ; Wizard
 :piers:   ; Oracle
 :garet:  ; Chaos Lord
 :ivan:    ; Beastkeeper

I used this team configuration successfully while fighting Doom Dragon.
I had a team with 2-3 potential healers on the battlefield and a nice (I think) DPS.
When needed I replaced one of the characters on the field by a similar one.

Hey guys, I'm considering using Piers on my main team, this guy is freaken awesome.

Usually Jenna seems to dominate my playthroughs, but this time Piers has shown to be dominant, so whenever I get to a point where I have my final team, I going to have Mia, Jenna, Piers and Garet on my final team.
