Heh. I like how in this particular action side scrolling RPG, there's actually some strategy you have to think of. Pretty interesting if you ask me. ;)

Yup, it really is. I'm grinding some Hunter's Charms right now, since even 5% xp makes me grinding my units up a bit for the sake of the army a little more bearable...

For most of the game I was trying to match my brigade levels with the enemies but later on I stopped doing that and won anyway. If you keep smashing the guys in the front row with your character to raise your morale you can do the brigade arcana thing fairly often and that's really powerful. You also get a bonus they don't from your character (like plume raising fencer abilities) so it's pretty stacked in your favor. As long as a couple of your brigades are at decent level and you arrange them to have advantage on their weaknesses you should be fine even if your brigades are not as high level.

Siege was easy for me doing the method I said previously switching between attack and defense modes. Other than that it's all just jump canceling to hit the boss rapidly and blocking when you need to. combo to launcher jump to air combo double jump into another air combo... Most siege battles only took a couple minutes doing this.

Skirmish is much more fun though imo. I kinda wish most of the game could have been skirmish, or if they could have expanded it somehow.

i agree skirmish is my favorite too, I've never had a level issue to this point because of the arcana, but I'm at the other general and I can't kill her so I'm not getting any bonuses. but I need to get her pattern down better anyway. I'll probably keep grinding at the moment because plume is 17, nothing else is about like 8.

I can't figure out where side quest one was suppose to fall. the dragon isn't a problem anymore, but that one still almost kills me every time.

Okay, using the second swordsman in a skirmish is an easy way to naturally get 500 hits :shock:

10 characters. One of them is missable though so make sure to do talk to ppl in town and complete sidequests immidiately when they appear. It's Marietta (i think thats her name? The lesbian chick). I got her but someone on gamefaqs missed her. Should get her for clearing sidequest 4

What does she use?

A gun. She's pretty fun. If you do her combo string with the charged shot it wallbounces and lets her combo her launcher string before the land from the bounce. Pretty cool. I tend to prefer characters with grabs though because enemies that block are annoying. Name is Marianne to correct my previous post :p

Question, what is the name of the music that plays when you start the game and go into the tutorial?

They unlock naturally, and then disappear after you finish a certain main story battle. So you'll have to beat the game and do it in NG+ now.
