Etrian Odyssey

11 March 2013 at 16:26 (Random Randomness) (, )

GAH! This is such a frustrating game! I don’t know how I would ever have been able to clock this without having to refer to the strategy guides. Another thing that’s annoying me is that even though I have defeated the final boss Primeval (who is also utterly annoying), and completed all the quests and monster codex, the password still won’t unlock. The password shows up under the Y menu (ie, load your game, press Y and then Select, and it’ll show up). Um, except the password given to me is about one line longer than the space given in Etrian Odyssey II.

Anyway, after first resting and then retiring each character, because you cannot beat the game without a certain skill set (you go actually get a cool 9 skill points if you retire at level 70, rather than 3. I don’t know about stat bonuses), here was my final team:

    • AGI Up Lv10
    • Bows Lv10
    • Ambush Lv5

    • Multihit Lv10

  4. Alex-kun: Bard Lv70

    • Relaxing Lv10
    • Take Lv1
  5. Clarys: Medic Lv70
    • HP Up Lv7
    • TP Up Lv10
    • Healer Lv10
    • Patch Up Lv3
    • TP Regen Lv3
    • Cure Lv3

    • Cure III Lv3
    • Salve Lv3
    • Salve II Lv10
    • Revive Lv3
    • Refresh Lv8
    • Immunise Lv10

For the dragons, I just got my Protector to cast anti-[element] each turn, my medic to cast Immunize, my bard cast Relaxing to stop anyone’s TP depleting, and bashed away. It was the damn Primeval that was the pain. I didn’t have Unbind, so had to carry loads of Theriaca As to negate that. I won just by the skin of my teeth [?]. I had to follow the turn-by-turn strategy on gamefaqs to beat him, and even then it was touch and go. Stupid Primeval. Just make sure your protector doesn’t take any of the anti-[element] skills over level 5. Seriously. Stop at level 5. But still no password. There are a couple floating around on the Interweb, so maybe I can get those to work. But at least I beat the game. More of this later 😉

My password, which doesn’t even work in the sequel (this may be a regional thing? As I have the European version for game 1; game 2 was never released here):
