Honestly, the demo bonuses aren't all that special. It's really just potions and low-level gear, which you'll be able to purchase easily enough really quickly. Your village progress will transfer over, and that's good enough.

We've all exchanged codes during the pokemon craze right? If not and you need mine let me know. This game is actually more fun right now than ffxiv.

Psh, get on my level. I'm playing XIV and BD at the same time.

I'm not sure if I have yours?


Btw, just to make this clear (since it wasn't in game, and I looked it up), your stats are entirely dependent on the job you are in (and it's level) and the base stats of the character (and their level). You won't be penalized for leveling up as a Knight and deciding you want to try out magic on that character.

Which is all kinds of awesome, because it means you're fully free to figure out your builds as you play, instead of having to plan your characters.

Stats-wise, Tiz is balanced, Edea has high Str/Vit (great as a Knight or other stroic dps types), Ringabel has high Agi/Dex (So great for ninja stuff and other speed jobs), and Agnes is the best caster.

And, of course, you can do whatever you want, because you have a lot of freedom to customize jobs, and the stat differences shouldn't be huge.

Happy grinding.

Well here is my code, 0791-2121-2660. The grind is so on after hearing that as well. I just started an all Whm part, with Blm sub.. Things blow up quick.

[EDIT] Net friend "day" reset is Tokyo midnight, 10 EST.

Black Magic gets stronger with the more people who have Black Resonance equipped (it's the Black Mage special). So a mana burn of all-blm is SUPER strong. Black Resonance can be set as a support ability by anyone who reaches level 8 in Blm, too, so once you're further in the game, that could make grinding out more caster levels much nicer.

[EDIT]

Has anyone successfully updated their village pop via the update data feature for a second time? I got villagers yesterday, and I thought the tutorial said I could do it again after midnight, but it didn't work last night, and it didn't work this morning. Maybe it's a 24 CD... I wish I could check when it came up.

[EDIT2]

Your favorite title is Health and Safety Information. Smiley: lolSmiley: lolSmiley: lol

[EDIT3]

Okay, I think Net Friend Invites use Tokyo time to determine midnight (same as FFXIV for NA players - it's a huge PITA...)

I'll report back to see if I can get new ones then. I'll try shortly before/after midnight.

Good to know about the reset time, thanks. What I can't figure out is how exactly the friend thing works. Is it searching my 3DS friends list like it says it is? Because I recognize almost none of the names that it's told me are "friends", aside from a couple which I know are just people I've streetpassed.

There are friends and then there are guests. You aren't currently in my friends list, even though I know we're 3DS friends. But the 9 people I got via updating data are each in my guests list.

I wonder if you have to be online at the same time to register friends? The only one in mine is g0dless, which I know is one of you, but I don't remember who.

Since you mentioned street passing, do I need to enable it, like in other games, or is it default? I got a spotpass from Starbucks this morning, and there were no Bravely Default passes in there (FE:A, Pokemon, and Zelda). Which obviously could be because no one had BD who visited there, but I wanted to confirm anyway.

I also have g0dless, but couldn't remember who it was. Being online at the same time seems unlikely, since you have to manually update once per day.

As for streetpasses... in other games as part of the tutorial or something it talks about streetpassing and then asks if you want to enable streetpass for that title. I know that my streetpass data from the demo carried over, but I can't remember if I had to activate it in the demo or not. But my assumption is that I did, based on how other games have handled it.

The demo is long, and the in-game rewards are relatively pointless (just potions and such).

The one meaningful bonus is that your villager count will carry over, up to 20, and I learned (too late) that there's a small exploit that lets you use the demo to hit that cap without having to rely on streetpassing.

It's not a huge deal, but it'll give you quicker access to some weapons and such. You'll still need to purchase them after you unlock them, though.

Thanks to the 20 I carried over, I already have about 7 different Norende "shops" at level 6-7... and my characters are only level 6 and I have about 300 gil to my name... I can afford very little that is available to me. So having the 20 is not as huge a boost as you might think Smiley: tongue.

I've spent way too much time grinding. Smiley: lol I'm obsessed with leveling the jobs. I'm like level 20... and I'm definitely WAY past the level for the content.

I unlocked the merchant job, which has the 1.5x gp drop modifier as its unique skill. And it stacks with itself... So I've had my whole party grinding the job. Smiley: lol I'm up to level 5 - need to get to 8 to get the 1.5 skill for other classes. Part of me really wants to do it, so I can buy whatever I want for the rest of the game. The other part of me knows that would probably be stupid, because if I grind so much now (when the return is actually lower), it'll be just offsetting the game of catch-up.

On the flip side, ALL of that grinding I did while doing other things. Playing FFXIV/FFXIII-2, for instance. Since I just have bravex3, attack x4, and auto-battle set up (with a 100% encounter rate boost), I just run in circles really quickly, auto-battle, and then do it again.

Yea, I'm afraid of trivializing the game too much if I do that. I am looking forward to unlocking and leveling up all the jobs though, so who knows... I actually haven't done that much playing. Had too much stuff to do on FFXIV this weekend. I'll definitely be getting into it this week though.

Thing is, you can bump up the difficulty if you need to. If I'm getting bored, I'll just do that.

[EDIT]

I can't remember right now, but I THINK you can disable exp and/or job exp independently of each other. Or even if you thought you were getting too strong, you could just disable exp to stay the same level, but still have the challenge created by fighting mobs. You can disable pg drops, too.

True, upping the difficulty would help with that. As for disabling exp and/or pg... that's a thing? Really? O_o

Yeah, the game is quite customizable that way. There's a bunch of stuff under the difficulty tab.

You can disable the destination marker, turn on/off PG, on/off exp, on/off job points, change the difficulty (easy to hard), and raise/lower the encounter rates (even disabling them).

I REALLY should have remembered the exp option earlier, because then I wouldn't be so ridiculously overpowered, lol. Oh well, maybe I'll turn it off now, and just gain job points for the forseeable future.

Tried the demo finally, and it's Final Fantasy without the crushing disappointment that comes with naming a game Final Fantasy. No expectations. I might pick up the full version.

The combat is fun, the job system looks to be fun.

Dunno if the story will prove to be interesting or not, but it's at least not repelling me yet.

Though the last act of the game is apparently terrible.

Without spoilers, there's a period where you essentially have to do something that sounds incredibly mundane and tiresome and boring (and testimony suggests that it is at least as bad as it sounds) and its super time-consuming and relatively pointless.

But everything up to that is apparently great, and I haven't heard anything to suggest that the period after it is bad.

[EDIT]

Smiley: lolSmiley: lolSmiley: lol

Apparently that was either too much of a spoiler for someone, or *gasp* saying anything bad about a game is blasphemy.

The period everyone is hating is one that makes you visit each major dungeon of the game THREE TIMES. Essentially, run around the globe watching cutscenes and doing little else.

Apparently it takes a few hours, even turning encounters off and using auto-battle for required ones. All the reviewers pretty much said they did it while watching TV, because it was just incredibly boring and frustrating (made worse by the fact that the acts leading up to it were so good).

I've spent WAY too much time hoping Agnes dies. Ringabel can go too (though he's occasionally nice to have around).

All hail Queen Edea.
