Just as some things can be right and useless at the same time, can't something be wrong and priceless?


Yay! I'm sure Thierry will do wonderful things. Wonderful indeed and not at all morally dubious! His portrait turned out absolutely wonderful, beautiful job!

I'm going to second Guild Tenebris.

Since the purpose of the guild is to dive deep into Yggdrasil's labyrinth, get to its roots, and use the parts they take from it to make themselves stronger...

Also, through my own arbitrary decision, and because I like the parallel idea, we're going with Tenebris.

Those post-game bosses that harrass you early game are always wierd to me.
Their stats make them look like something you should take on rather early in the post-game but the quests that want you to kill them come rather late which results in pretty easy fights.
Maybe it's meant as carthasis? Although that would be a 20 to 40 hour grudge you are expected to be holding against something not too difficult to maneuver around in the first place.

What a glorious update it was.

Crushing bosses in EO will never ever get old.

Also, a lot of the skills in this game look a lot of fun to use.

The characters just make it so much better!

Getting the town NPCs as guests on your level is a pretty nice postgame perk, I have to say.

The Oliphant. Such a beautiful and majestic creature... mercilessly done away with in a matter of a few turns.

All for a fishing rod.

EO giveth, and Ragnar taketh away. Such is life, but I'm still looking to take that thing on if I ever get the game.

So thanks. I'm happy the LP exists.

Given that it's been almost two weeks since the last update, I feel I should say that this is still going! I'm just unable to work on either EO5 or EOU right now due to my laptop not playing nicely with my capture card 3DS and dropping frames a bunch, meaning I'll have to do all my recording at home, where my desktop is, until holiday break. Meaning I'll only really be able to record on weekends, double meaning I'll have to record backlogs.

These floors look more exhausting than EO2U's sixth stratum, and that message on entering the 29th floor isn't helping the matter. Also that hidden FOE is a nice callback but drat, is that a large set of skills or what? At 14 skills if you count its regular attack, It only falls two skills shy of Ur-Child.

Decidedly easier to put down, though.

A huge pain to find again if you die against it, or fail to snag its conditional drop. 1% chance to spawn per step taken can mean that you'll be there for a long while.

Now the one thing I truly desire is a picture of Raven in that all-powerful sundress.
Bit disappointed that the ever awful transporter mazes will be returning, but at least they're better than the Etrain Odyssey 2 ones? That's something?
Also; Kaelin's actually a banana. That is canon now.

I kinda expected something more abstract from the descriptions "pudding with legs in high heels". Like something out of Gyo, but with puddings instead of rotting fish. What we have is uh, actually a little bit cute.

Some addendum on some postgame monsters:

-Seal Octopus: Only use Binding Dance on turn 1; will just attack regularly thereafter
-Stardust: See those disable resistances? Panicking them disables Invitation to the Netherworld as well, so use that and you have a lot of time to kill them
-Doomwheel: They actually start using Revenge Revolution when any of their allies are killed, not when they're damaged.
-Trick Parrot: They can also counter physical. They have a rotation that goes like this: Counter physical elements -> Counter magical elements -> Attack.
-Asura Cicada: They only use Death Throes if you kill them with elemental attacks. Stick to pure physical attacks and they do nothing when they die (you'll be hitting 50% resistance but better kill slowly than get blown for 400 damage in the face, right?)
-Night Lady: The charge up move is not for Walpurgisnacht, but rather move that replaces the current enemy formation with other monsters. If she's alone by the end of the second turn she will be replaced by two Imps, but if there's at least one other monster at that point, she will replace all of them with a Propagating Nightmare. I'm not actually sure what prompts her to use Walpurgisnacht, because during a few of my test battles just now I did not see her go for any (maybe not having any other monsters on the field before her first turn will prompt it?)

Also, You can use the viewing crystal accessory that's in that 9F chest to see where the pudding FOEs are (on the minimap) even when they're diving. Same goes for the Phantom in 13F in that miasma.

I will still be voting for Devastating Fighter Cecil, as well as Ghost Destroying Lanzon, and Omnimancer Kaelin. I've personally ran a Devastating Fighter on a run I had a couple of weeks ago, and this is the kind of damage you can expect from it:



The user in this case was I believe level 68 or 69 (a few levels higher than this LP's run), and there weren't much setup involved in it, because my party didn't allow the usage of either of its charge moves. All the character involved was Overexertion, other buffs I could afford to setup (I only had Armor Piercing, Moaning Ghosts and Advantageous Position at like level 6 or 7), then Giant Killer a couple of times. (For the record, Overexertion recoil happens before the attack takes place.) Hopefully this is enough to convince a few more people to give it a try.

...Uh, dang. Now I feel kind of bad for being dismissive of it. One of those cases where something is better in practice than it is on paper, I guess.

I mean, I still prefer having binds available, but...

e: Okay Giant Killer has 600% damage if you proc the HP-based damage amp. I don't know what I was thinking being dismissive of that.
