Chrrrcter Overview

Edge's party role Is to act as a well-rounded melee unit geared towards leadership. At higher levels, he has access to both damaging hand-to-hand combat abilities and a small variety of offensive and restorative symbols. This combination allows him to effectively attack from any position, and also act as a light support unit for injured party members. Though ultimately weaker than Arumat and Meracle in the damage department, his main attack string is far more flexible then theirs, allowing for...

E5crpe From The Biologicrl Lrborrtory

Once Bacchus has had his skills upgraded and has been given some leftover accessories to equip, make him your leader and take him for a spin. His basic attack is simply to fire a single long-range shot, but if you get close to your target, you can do a thoroughly satisfying backhand-and-shoot combo. You'll also notice that makes Bacchus slide instead of jump, and that while he's sliding (and only while he's sliding) he can fire a rapid sequence of shots that often leave foes stunned. If you're...

Every floor of the Control Tower Is protected by a maze of glowing red energy barriers.

The West Side Of The Citrdel

The Alanaire Citadel is full of blue obelisks, some of which have white stones set In them. When you press to examine an obelisk with a white stone, it rises up to create a bridge on the second floor of the citadel. An empty obelisk won't budge until you can activate it by finding a loose Shining Stone and setting it into the slot. Rush Mode is important here, so it's preferable to use a character who is set to the Rush Mode-focused BEAT B (the default setting for everyone except Edge), and who...

You'll meet several new enemies on your journey, including powerful IVIana Yetis that are best struck from a distance, and resilient Horned Turtles that won't go down easily unless you hit them with Blindsides, Rush Mode attacks, and special arts. Both of these new foes are weak to fire, so your new fire-type weapons and Lymle's fire-type symbols quickly prove...

Unfortunately, Lymle's symbol selection Is weaker than Myuria's at high levels, a problem caused by their low damage output and lack of elemental variety. This makes her weak against monsters that are resistant to fire symbols, the dominant element In her symbol and special art list.
