lol. A piece of me was hoping that Malak became some sort of freak frog because of this scene. But I suppose I can take it with what he is: better than Hell Knight.

 

 

Entry 38: Yuguo Woods

Rankings:
5/10 (First timer)
4.5/10 (Normal Player)
4/10 (2nd Playthough)

There is something funny about battles in woods in this game: They're all annoying

"(Hey Agrias, Why is she talking medieval all of the sudden?)"

"(Ehh, maybe she's one of those weirdos who actually read the script)"

Since Augestein have probably complain enough about them, I will just reforce his opinion: Dealing with these snoots is quite annoying since the only ways to inflict actual damage will be block by them, so better bring AoE spellcasters (Or a mime if you know how to properly use them)

You can bet your ass all those Ghosts/Remnants will go a throw at you as soon as the word go

Good thing that even with a handicap, Oersted is a one-punch man at this point

I had debuffers before, but no one can do the status game as good as Ovelia: Bad touch can set up things so they pile-drop on her and trigger her Effect Spore which is borderline broken in the right situation

It doesnt help that that Confusion/Defense ignoring damage is the way to go against these walkers and I just got those on spades

Uhhh.......I can arrange you two a room if you want, you know?

U0Psy9G.jpg

Dangit. Now I need to switch into plan B

plan Blow them up confirmed (BTW, Payback is dark elemental so take advantage of that)

CqK2qYD.jpg

Good thing decay also has the side effect of cockblock all kind of buffs to enemy units

6ZZU8lJ.jpg
QYmqbn7.jpg

If you want a good advice, please just bring one between Oersted and Agrias with item: those rubber hammers exist for a reason

f9bi9n7.jpg

Alternatively, you can do like me and forget why you did bring out said unit in the first place and waste a turn

syZIAm9.jpg
EEhpA6X.jpg

I haven't mention this, but of course this is clearly a race against time: Those Blood Jellies are damage sponges who only purpose is to prolong this battle so the reviving via undead properties occurs and you get surrounded by units you had dispatch turns ago (even worse since by now your units must have taken quite a beat without including the nasty undead status)

Since I had enough of this crap, bad bracelet stops any kind of comeback on this side of the barn

r259dai.jpg
Te3Sm4X.jpg
JaNu58p.jpg

And Boco goes for the kill

YOU DON'T SAY!!!!!

Overall, I think this is rather good to teach some players about an important fact: It doesn't matter if you have the perfect plan for every single battle,if you can't adapt you're worm food...Or as I like to say: GIT GUD OR DIE

(Before you ask: No, Emmy modify potions so they can't hurt the undead, otherwise this would have been the scenario:

Entry 39: Riovanes Castle I (Castle's Gate)

You know shit it's about to get real when the game show you this prompt

nnSBvsL.jpg

"You should also seek out my execution barracks, they are quite mesmerizing"

NXyYnbR.jpg
dXH3Kjs.jpg

Okay Vormav, I think we can all agree at this point that even Malak knows that those stones are real, so stop that ass pull right there (-_-)

G35qoTx.jpg

Molbar Virus is a code for "Oersted kick him out of existence"

i2oISVe.jpg
pnbE7aQ.jpg

"What a nice and warming father-son moment, but I don't care about that. Just give me the stones"

VJvYagn.jpg
5Am0HZL.jpg

"Ahh, Balbanes last son has finally arrive.....Seize him"

Wj6filg.jpg

"I see....Then let's get this party started, shall we?"

pnBL4Tr.jpg
Ns7U99V.jpg

"Izlude, I want you to trust your father just this one out, okay?"

"Okay.....What do you want from me?"

s2Wa7OP.jpg

"Survive"

X8ckMgr.jpg

And thus, Vormav decided to use his secrets stash of firecracker to start the night...Oh and he turned into a demon and completely annihilate everyone in the room 

Gameplay:

Of course Malak: He will hold his end of the bargain

yzOPQL6.jpg
uhAs205.jpg

"I don't like to spoil the fun, but you are REALLY DUMB if you think I will gladly give up my life just now"

"Let us see if you keep that snarky personality after I smack you with my claws!!!"

This whole place spells danger: Unlike in vanilla, going in and dispose of everything will net you a very death team, so better grab everyone's ass and hightail to the corner ASAP 

2xOx8Gs.jpg
jBzAi4h.jpg
kkY5HAF.jpg
no8Gyxn.jpg

The general consensus to deal with this place is teamwork: Agrias and Xipha are there to shut down as many threats they can before going down, Othelos and Oersted are there to support and Ovelia's hides because she's a panic button (Who's Rafa?) 

It1Vmks.jpg
QKqRlAM.jpg
zGmfoEq.jpg

(I didn't shot a wall with Agrias, a morbol was hidding there and I failed to notice him until I check the unit list after the battle started) 

ElMbnGa.jpg
vtu1DX4.jpg
qXPFaKL.jpg

AI shenanigans: Othelos got pelted with holy and triggered synchronize. Since said ability apply with the status effects on the unit BEFORE ending the turn, that dragon has essentially buff himself for free while hitting Othelos with slow and don't act via static since grudge activated. Talking about being a spirited bitch 

hgg4voH.jpg
h9x5DmM.jpg

Ovelia buff Agrias before slap Rafa's ass to activate this cutscene: 

zvU8O2u.jpg
VkicPej.jpg
Akcf0df.jpg So yeah: Malak is so useless that he doesn't even care about dealing with us if her sister so happen to get hurt enough. #ThugLife

Stuff happens and Oersted decides to follow the pacifist path 

pt9JJke.jpg
BEymh6c.jpg

Not that he knows how to actually play the harp but it's the through that counts 

Um8ECwP.jpg

Monster Heal!!!

After a while, Oersted decides that the power of love is bullshit and goes back his old ways 

FA5KzJP.jpg
QLCXy6L.jpg
eQZucd1.jpg

This is not by any stretch won: Even when they're confused, they somehow managed to cripple my plans several times

qR2az0w.jpg
zCBnKQM.jpg Finally, after being left with these critters, I realized I did a fatal mistake: I lack someone who can bypass their horrendous defenses (those robots have 61/40 PA/MA damage reduction for example) 

EtAgGo9.jpg
wFxJc1V.jpg
2OANnKg.jpg
FSJFEML.jpg

And this is me prologing the battle for about five minutes just because of that mistake (Still better than 1.3 by a mile)

9PStbnC.jpg

"Hey, I'm a citizen like you!!"

"Not you jackass....there's an abomination....with the form...of a sheep......BLARG"

"Oh crap, I hope it is NOT who I think it is"

And done with this crapsack. I must admit, I had to redo this one twice just because going on the offensive at all is quite hard since they got that on spades while having good supports, so better tank those blows and disable at least the dragons to avoid future ragequits.

Stay tuned: Next time there's gonna be a video with actual commentary

RFYGwzz.jpg

"OH CRAP, He got covered in ketchup!!"

8ogUyVJ.jpg

Stop being a wuss: You just lost half your face and you're pouring blood from ALL your orifices you big baby

Qd0QNaa.jpg

What you expect: "Okay Alma, get a hold of yourself and think: Maybe I should wait here for my brother or search for someone in the castle to escort me out or  jump off the window into that pond back on the front OR make use of my magic and just outright mow everything in my way to the backdoor....."

4ovGRnV.jpg

What happens: "Ehh, I'm gonna walk aimless across this whole mess and hope for the best" 

Alma Beoulve: Not exactly the sharpest tool in the shelf

Gameplay:

Oersted is the embodiment of "You can't touch this" while Agrias decides to cosplay Ovelia of all things

Learned Skills:

=Oersted=

<Chemist>
Sturdy: Survives a mortal attack with 1 hp (The more hp you have, more chances you have to trigger it)

 

9We4n6h.jpg

"Alma, what did I told you about walking aimless?"

4fygpy6.jpg

"HA! this isn't my first time dealing with the undead, What's the worst that could happen?"

AVNgIcN.jpg

Uhh Oersted....You might want to go and check your sight, because these guys aren't joking around (Also, good job eating dirt as soon the first one moved Alma, I always knew I could count on you)

 NyVdj22.jpg
QGXRu35.jpg

Some first time players would dismiss the danger and think this is just a field trip to those with healing magic. That is until we compare said goblins with say....Mustadio, and find out they outspeed him by TWO POINTS.

So yeah, Emmy added a new flag called "Evil Brand". Said brand has the amazing property to grant it's user +2 PA/MA/Speed and Innate: Undead. To give you an idea how frigging nightmare fuel is this whole situation: Velius had 14 speed and could run circles around my units and pack some punch. But he was one.....and you could land don't move to suppress the annoying factor. Not so much luck here since not only we don't have the resources to outspeed said bastards (meaning: THEY'RE GETTING THE FIRST TURN NO MATTER WHAT) but also the fact that you fight SIX OF THEM, turning this into a massacre if you don't know what to do and go YOLO to your death.

(For the record, I lost six time before this footage came out. And all those game overs happen in the lapse of fifteen minutes. Yeah)

first off, let's have reraise on all my dudes for good measure (#StigmataIsUnderrated)

6uwrw2p.jpg

And now let just watch as my plan almost got foiled because those dicks decided to focus on the one I need alive (Good thanks Bezekiras have good physical evade)

CUTX2Zr.jpg

Silent Lucidity has the nice feature of not only sleep them but also avoid their healing factor via Cone of Cold

BCWpnbv.jpg

Not that this solves the problem of getting hit yourself with it

bXzhs81.jpg

BTW, Moogle+Sacred Boost kind of destroys them

Q3nLFbh.jpg

Sunlight will see "the light of day" in my repertory......maybe....eventually......nah

Upping dat magic to get shit done quick

kxF3Qnb.jpg
Q8I1ldP.jpg

Tactical Nuke by Arioch and Oersted eats a bullet so he can be killed (88 damage looks low right? that's because Oersted reduces all physical damage received by 45% via his armor, otherwise that harmless punch would have done around 160-180 damage. Yup, don't waste any time here)

More shenanigans from my end and done with this pain of a fight

Ibf7dmi.jpg

"Could you stop getting kidnapped? If you keep going, you will catch up with frigging

Peach!!!"

x1orcdJ.jpg
8yJyGLa.jpg

"Awww......I knew you had a soft side on you, Oersted."

"Shut up boobs, I'm talking with my sister here"

"......"

BwnxMvE.jpg

"OH SHIT, give me a sec"

3dd59i2.jpg

"Technically.......they cannot die"

"WHAT?!? BUT WE KILL ONE WITH SIMON!!!"

"Ohh that shambling skeleton? I killed the real deal waaaay back when I was escorting Ovelia and her brainless guard"

"Hey, show some more respect: I was able to rescue AND lead her back to the castle and ok, I didn't know Draclau was evil, but that isn't the case here!!!"

"Ohhh sorry, my fault. Ovelia and her USELESS guard"

".......You know? I hate you sometimes"

"You're welcome"

SdCbrDH.jpg

"Like hell I'm letting you go with my sister without a fight!!!"

"Ohhh you? I have something prepared for you.......LOOK, THERE'S DELITA"

"Heh, like I would fall for tha-"

"AND HE'S TAKING A SWORD FROM THE GROUND"

"WHERE!?!?!?"

"TA-DA" *dissapears*

nfuC3uJ.jpg

"Good going, hero"

"Just shut up and follow me"

And with that note, we end this here. See you soon
