what is this exactly?

>> No.5661197

You get assigned 4 random jobs and you have to complete the game using only those 4 jobs. There's a few options for flavor you can pick too. It works by you tweeting option codes to their bot account on twitter, and it assigns you your jobs at random and you complete the game that way.

Get 1 job = all 4 characters as that job
Get 2 jobs = Any combination as long as you use both jobs at least once.
Get 3 jobs = Any combination of jobs as long as you use all 3 jobs once
Get 4 jobs = each job must be represented on the team

You only get one job per crystal and can switch jobs for characters as long as you follow the above rules.

Squeenix really should just implement this feature in the base game. It's fun af. Getting all geomancers to clear was harder run than all berserkers oddly enough.

1) Get to Wind Crystal, roll a random wind crystal job and only use that job
2) Get to Water Crystal, roll a water crystal job and only use both jobs you rolled
3) Get to Fire Crystal, roll a fire crystal job and only use all three jobs you rolled
4) Get to Earth Crystal, roll an earth crystal job and use all four jobs you rolled

If you don't want to tweet, just use random.org to pick a job at random at each crystal. You don't have to play if you don't want to but it's really not complicated.

I agree that the website is not well structured. With all the different run types and extra restrictions being explained all over the place
>pic related
this paragraph from the website contains almost everything you need to know for a bare bones normal run.

To answer this >>5661518 question:
>what if i don't get the jobs till later? im confused. am i expected to play as bare until i get the crystal needed?
yes, But that only can happen if you pick chaos runs, where you always roll from all jobs in the game.
In normal/random runs, you only get jobs that are available at the point you roll them.


Easiest way to understand is to watch runs on Youtube, just skip to the points after they get a crystal and see what their parties look like.

I'm excited bros, first job is blue mage. Any tips for where to get good early blue magic? Also, sorry for being a phonefag

>> No.5668059

Two important spells can be learned instantly: Aero (wind attack) and Blood Suck (HP drain attack)
You can learn Aero in the wind shrine from those ugly snake-like things with wings and with the big head. (there are also Black Goblins in there that give you Goblin Punch, but that's a gimmicky move that only does good damage if you're at the same level as the enemy)
Back in the Pirate Cave there are bats that have blood suck, you can learn that too
You might as well learn
I'm used to the fan translation of the SNES version. So the names may differ.

Oh? Just checked the page: I got Blue Mage too, even though I registered for a Pure Chaos run and could have gotten any job from later crystals as well.

SFC has a bigger field of view and imo the best music

GBA has some changes that make it faster to navigate through the menus.
For example, in the GBA version you can just press L and R to switch between characters while you're in the equipment menu, while on SFC you need to go back to the main menu select equip again and select each character individually.
and you can change you battle menu for the selections to be left, right, up, down instead of a list, if you prefer that.

You are doing an Advance run, right?
The advance run is new this year and they didn't reveal details on how exactly it works.
I just looked through the player list, here's what I gathered:
In an Advance run Time Mage is part of the 1st roll
Ninja, Geomancer and Beastmaster are part of the 2nd roll
All earth jobs are part of the 3rd roll
The 4th roll only gives Gameboy Advance's extra jobs.

Thieves don't have any special attacks so there's not much you can do. One character in the front row as an attacker, three in the back row who do nothing but use potions. And pray he doesn't use his damage over time attack too much.

Alright, made it to Galuf's World. Been struggling pretty hard even after I've wholly accepted cheesing parts of the game by breaking rods (but that's slowly starting to get less effective anyway). Thief is still not pulling its weight and I imagine it's going to just be Potion Bitch for the rest of the game unless giving it dual wielding radically changes anything when I start maxing out jobs.

mobile/steam version has a few other changes

- diagonal running
- when just changing abilities, your items aren't always unequipped (my favorite change, it was so annoying when you had to put back on the elf mantle each time you swapped in a healing ability)
- berserkers always attack the rightmost target, a significant buff to their usefulness
- auto battle, you can fast forward through battles with the last commands given
- status ailments are visible, e.g. blinded enemies become darker, slowed enemies are flashing white and so on
The last two make the game quite a bit easier.

basically what I said here, >>5672284 , blues are gimmicky but very mighty once you manipulate someone's level and then kill him with LV5 Death, even Exdeath is vulnerable to it
in world 1 he's sort of alright as an early nuke, and his Death Sickle can be really nice for example against the guardian crystals (which are also vulnerable to Blue's deathclaw, by the way), but most of the run you're better off knocking him out
he can paralyze beasts (the top part of Neo Exdeath is a beast!), his Zu/Golden Dragon summon deals 1/4 damage to all and he can procure Blue spells. Other than that meh
