@Rens11 Yeah, you can see where they've sort-of gone 'over the lines', so to speak, in some of the tighter areas. It's only really noticeable if you look very close though, it looks great on my shelf.|
The art book is the main reason I wanted it though, and I couldn't be happier with that! It's up there with the FFXIV:ARR LE book.

The illustrations do look lovely but at the price I think I'll wait and get a stand-alone artbook at some point. Thanks for sharing the photos, Ror.
I've been playing the demo all day today. It finally clicked with me - I didn't realise you could Brave your balls off and effectively get 3 extra free turns. Early on, you can kill enemy groups quick enough not to worry about it leaving you open for lots of turns. I also used Huntcjna tips for the first few battles. Will be playing the demo for a good while more
So very jealous of that special edition Ror. Some great pictures there. An excellent game with all that lovely stuff seems like all win!
You're all very welcome ^.^
I'm so tempted to start the game now, but I know one of three things will happen if I do.
a) I will never finish Tales of Eternia
b) I will never finish Bravely Default
c) I will never finish either
The latter is the most likely outcome
@DFawkes It's what we've been saying, read through the thread for all the tips we came up with; at first it felt broken, thanks to the Brave/Default setup, but once you get to grips with it it becomes something else entirely.
If you use the 'update' command from the save menu, the game will download bonus bosses. Suffice to say the first, although stated to be 'level 10' wiped the floor with me.
Also, just got introduced to the special move/limit break system. It's customisable...
What about the job system? Am playin demo and wondering what you guys done wen you mastered a job? Should you swap out for another? Change back wen facing a boss?
I switched jobs after mastering one, so every party member ended up with access to every support ability. You'll probably want at least 2 mastered, as each character can have their primary ability set from their current job, plus one support job. So I have a White Mage that previously mastered Black Mage skills so has access to both sets of spells

As much as I enjoyed the demo I feel a complete lack of enthusiasm when actually contemplating buying BD. I probably don't need it when I've yet to get around to giving fire emblem a decent go. Looks good but I don't think I've got the will to do it justice. I seem to prefer shorter/easier games these days.
@DFawkes that's what I am doing, is it better to have your mastered class as main job wen fighting bosses tho?
The job system in the demo is slightly different to the main game, where you earn the jobs gradually as you progress. They also have fourteen levels, as opposed to four, so it's unlikely you'd be mastering any until the end/post-game.
@Daryoon thanks mate am hooked on this demo and now you have sold me for sure in full game!
In terms of strategy, it's best to focus on a role for each character and have them level the jobs that support it. Abilities from some jobs can help boost others. For example, one of the first you unlock is the Monk, and leveling that gives you access to health increasing abilities, which you can then combine with the Knight class to create a tank.
FF5 wisdom would suggest two magic focused characters, and two offensive. There's multiple schools of magic besides Black/White, so a single mage won't cover everything. The great thing about the job system, though, is that you can do whatever you want with it, and it's perfect for self-imposed challenges (only using white mages or thieves, for example).
A take it demo is over after the automaton fight!
@pogomeister I can't remember the order, but there were two "post-game" bosses to defeat.

Fucking hell this game is staggeringly good, giving me a great FFV mixed with FFIX vibe.
Only disappointment is there isn't an option to turn off the voice acting. I play all JRPGs without voices if possible, even games with "good" voice acting like Persona 3 and 4 so that's the only fault I have with this so far.
But even then it's not a fault really so fuck it. Glad I haven't entered my game of the year picks yet as I can see this making the top 5 in what has been an incredible year.
@YenRug al have another look then! The only bad thing is it delays me actually buyin the game! Never spent so much time on a demo I feel I owe them a purchase!
Can't find this second boss any tips?

@pogomeister As I recall, there was a quest marker and it was the same location as the first post-game boss, though I've deleted the demo now. Just make sure you've gone back into the town after the first one, I think there was a request for each one.
I'd imagine most people will have played it, so I won't spoiler tag this. Plus the world map is small so doesn't reveal much.
First boss is the dungeon to the West. Second is in the forest to the North East a bit. Third is in the dungeon to the South. Forth is in the Oasis to the West (should've passed it on the way to boss 1). Fifth is at an obelisk to the North of that oasis.
You need to pick up the quests for them to appear. The third boss quest only appears at night. You unlock stuff in the full game for every boss you defeat, one for simply playing the demo, and one for completing Norende (all 4 buildings level 3).
@DFawkes cheers for that av done all the bosses then all o
Av got is to level up buildings! Only have one villager tho street pass is useless to me.all in all about 8 hours,although I haven't fully levelled the character to 20 or the red mage job. Don't think ther is any point
Has anyone figured out what the deal is with locked chests in some of the dungeons?
Really getting in to this now. I hated the demo with a passion and really don't think it does it justice.
Just finished Anchiem and the Wind Crystal and looking forward to the next Chapter, mostly because I want to finish levelliing up my monk and get thieving.

Am just gona pick this up in the next hour or so! I loved the demo so am looking fwd to main game now!!
@FuzzyZealot Just at the same point, so far I've unlocked these jobs:
@YenRug yeah, just got the last two on the way in to work. Already got you friended by the way, think you need to update your character profile.
If want some easy money/job grinding post Wind crystal, hang around outside the next major town. You'll often encounter large groups of annoying plant-based enemies, but their low HP and weakness to fire mean they can be offed with a single Bomb Fragment (which you get through town redevelopment). Have a Merchant in the party to up the money you earn as well. You'll earn enough to keep stocking up said bomb fragments, as well as new gear/spells. Keep a couple of the ice-magic items (Antarctic something-or-other) around for any rogue scorpions that pop up.
You'll be earning anything from 15-30+ job points per battle. It's a good way to quickly level the Time Mage and Spellsword.
@FuzzyZealot What's your friend code? Just adding mine to your 3DS doesn't automatically add me, I have to add yours so that there's a match.
Here's my friend code btw:4270-0786-5594
@FuzzyZealot Got you now, was having trouble getting a connection last night and had to reset my 3DS/WiFi link setup at home to be able to do the friend update. Need to check my work one, now, see if that's still playing silly buggers.
