    I gave her to Rex too. I'm in chapter ten and haven't used the fifth character once.

    You can switch Blades over to other characters with a certain item. So don't worry about getting them on the "wrong" character.

    Yes but said item is incredibly rare, so don't waste em.

    For Rex, I wouldn't overload him as he can use any unlocked blade he likes from the start of chapter 8.. (Non-story spoiler).

    I also wouldn't go overboard with unlocks till you have all the characters, as it gets harder to pull rare blades the more you unlock.

    @Gaol
    This might have been useful to know earlier; Iím on chapter 5 and Rex now has 7 rares and each of my other two drivers have 4.

    A number of the spare rares lead my merc groups. Is this a reasonable way of improving their affinities and unlocking their abilities?

    You only get 3 of those items in the whole game though unlesss you somehow max a character's affinity chart before beating the game.

    I used that character quite a lot especially late game, Nia as a blade is so good at healing I just put her on Rex then used the 4th/5th party members without a dedicated healer.

    @Zero_g yeah, this works reasonably well though the quickest way I believe is using pouch items with long durations over and over

    It will slowly improve them though, more importantly, the merc missions will unlock stuff at shops and returning blades can increase the idea levels of drivers (which increases the chance of further rares). The only thing that is really handy to have on spares is their field skills, which is an annoying system imo.

    I found once I had a set up I was comfortable with I swapped both drivers and blades rarely, and there are quite a few side mission unlocks if you need a specific type. If you have an axe on Rex, leave it there as it gives him Launch and you can do Topple>Launch>Smash yourself, I didn't get that till late on and the driver combo damage is really handy.

    Havenít really managed to get into this yet, got too many other things to do at the minute. Played through the intro bit and am onto the first part.

    Need more free time!

    Need to get back into this properly. Stopped over christmas as bloodborne was £15.99 and kept me busy but need to balance it out a bit and crack on i think!

    This game is stopping me from playing anything else. I've got a ton of other Switch games to play but everytime I pick the Switch up I just want to play this.

    I can't help but think that Monolith Soft is staffed by massive perverts who knowingly created Pyra and Mythra's costumes for the sole purpose of wanking themselves silly to the inevitable cosplay costumes that are bound to show up.

    It's the gift that keeps on giving. Thanks Monolith Soft!

    You should see Dahlia. Though that's not a Monolith design.

    Loving this so far. The voice acting is ace for me, suitably over the top and amazing accents. Storyline suitably OTT.

    Major gripe so far and itís major - the fact that A skips cut scenes when you are on the pause menu. I mean wtf. I have had to watch cutscenes on my phone repeatedly because I put it in pause in the middle of a cut scene and instinctively press A when I resume the game. Canít stop myself.

    Had a look at the Dahlia image.

    Maybe it says something about me but her finger looks exactly like a thingy. No accidents there.

    Finished now.

    Loved it all the way to the end. Would have liked trust to come a little easier for blades, because the ones I got late on were basically doomed not to be developed seriously with all the sidequests gone, and Ursula's personal mission can fuck off into the bin and not come out until it realises why it is trash.

    It's very good, into chapter 6 but the world isn't as inviting to explore as other Xenos and feels more linear as a result. Maybe it's the lack of collectables to encourage exploration but I'm being carried along by the main story and not stopping to smell the roses. Is there any reason for increasing the star rating of zones?

    Overall quite impressed by the acting (except Morag and Rex), but there's a ridiculous range of accents... variety of British accents, Welsh, Scottish, Aussie, New Zealand, US... It's kind of jarring.

    Anyway, can't stop playing!

    I was convinced that the voice actor for Morag was putting on site faux Scottish accent but turns out she's from Glasgow.

    Still sounds unconvincing though.

    Shops have more stock and items are cheaper, they also give you more merc missions which adds more to shop stocks. Also rarer and later available items give stronger bonuses when used in pouch items.

    Once you have one of everything in a shop you can buy it which gives you mild statistical bonuses like faster movement, more XP from battles, etc.

    I seem to be hitting a point where my lack of grinding is going to cause me issues. Just started chapter 8 and the last battle in 7 was pretty tough.

    Just got this. No clue what I'm going at all, but the character I'm playing seem happy enough about it all, so that's fine then.

    70 hours in and onto chapter 4 and about to take the flight to Mor Adain. Been caught up with learning the ins and outs of the different combos... most times I just pick up the switch and head out to find a big beastie to try pull off a blade combo + driver combo at the same time (fusion combo?)

    Hmmm, whenís the best time to use chain attack?

    I'd use Chain Attack towards the end of a boss or unique enemy fight, preferably after you've gotten a bunch of orbs floating around the enemy to keep the attack going. Using it earlier could be bad, because you probably won't kill it, and you won't have any gauge left to revive your guys if needed.

    Using it as the final blow (ie. an overkill) gets you more experience too.

    Wow! Just completed the rather epic chapter 3 boss battle!

    I am damn well loving this game. 24hrs played and so much I haven't done I'm sure.

    This is rising up my games of 2017. It is now ahead of resident evil 7 and mario and rabbids. Can see this going ahead of mario and metroid to take second spot...
