Welcome to the “Tales of” Club! This is where the fans of the “Tales of” [Series] can hang out and talk, speculate, and chat about the video game series!

The “Tales of” [Series] is a popular role-playing game published by Namco. There are many series published in various consoles like GameBoy Advance, Super Famicom, PSX, PSP, GameCube, Wii etc. So far all of the published series are as follows:
-Tales of Phantasia
-Tales of Destiny
-Tales of Eternia
-Tales of Destiny 2
-Tales of Symphonia
-Tales of Rebirth
-Tales of Legendia
-Tales of the Abyss
-Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
-Tales of the Tempest
-Tales of Innocence
-Tales of Vesperia
-Tales of Hearts

There are also Tales of The World: Narikiri Dungeon, Narikiri Dungeon 2, Narikiri Dungeon 3, Summoner’s Lineage, Radiant Mythology and Radiant Mythology 2. (Thanks to Arceus03 for the above intro)


All “Tales of” games have many aspects in common with each other: side quests, summon spirits, recipes, equipment, the title system, skits etc. But the most noticeable thing is the time-based 2D-fighting system. A player can control one character in battle and direct that character during the battle. And many attacks and spells, such as ‘Lightning Blade’ and ‘Indignation’, appear in most of the games in some shape and form (some of the spells also keep the chants that are needed to be said before casting.) Players can also perform ’Unison Attacks’, where all of the ally party fighters in battle attack an enemy at once. Hi-Ougi, or special, powerful attacks unique to a character, can only be cast by activating an Unison Attack (in most “Tales Of” games).

I'm joining!!!
*does an excited jig dance*

1. what tales of games have you played?
Tales of Phantasia and Tales of Eternia. I have Tales of Destiny, but still am not thinking about playing it. Currently playing ToP PSX version.

2. Name your favorite two Characters from any games and why?
ToP - Arche. She's damn funny.
ToE - Farah. Her skills are just awesome, especially Maximum Burst. Meredy comes in second, having Maxwell Extensions to boot.

3. Name Your least favorite two characters form any games and why?
Guess I haven't got one..

4. Why do you like the Tales of series game?
The LMBS (Linear Motion Battle System). It's the thing that differentiates the Tales of Series from other RPG games, and I LOVE this system. It's time based, and you'll never feel bored battling wild monsters ^_^
Also there are funny skits in the game. I like that too. Furthermore, some series have hi-ougi which are just awesome~

Oh darklord18 you should add some more in your first post so anyone who hasn't played Tales of [Series] before could have a good glimpse about what the game is like. Let's see.. you could put introduction, then some info about the battle system, then a list of released series, and so on. I could try to do that, or you can do it yourself.

darklord18
12th December 2008, 4:45 AM
Ok you can join arceus03 and if you can that would be great as I haven't play many games yet. I like the hi-ougi but I hate the way they made them in Tales of the world; RM.

Topic
What boss (use spoiler tags if you need two. and no final boss) did you like.
the secret boss in Tos, not only dose he use your move and Spell, he came even do Hi-ogui (one of my favorites but I forgot the name.) I actully had a spare save right before him so I can fight him over and over.

arceus03
12th December 2008, 3:45 PM
What boss did you like.
Maxwell. As he floats near a wall, I'd abuse Aegis Strike (you know, the one in which Cress sticks his weapon into the ground and light particles came floating up) and get in lots of hits XD

I'd say Nereid, as when you're battling him you get to use Reid's skill Aurora Wave when Eternal Finality/Darkness of the Outer Limits is directed at the team, but.. no final boss, so....

Cress + Arche at the Colosseum, if you use the Hardcore mode. It's fun battling them ^_^ I abused Rising - Burning Phoenix like mad and when I'm low on health I just execute Aurora Wall + Slash~

Oh Cress you shouldn't have used your Albain Finality.

Fighting Greater Craymels is fun, too. But it isn't fun when Maxwell uses Shooting Star on you DX

darklord18
13th December 2008, 8:18 AM
/\How about that battle against the Greater graymel of time where you came have someone beat with that powerfull spell?

arceus03
13th December 2008, 3:38 PM
Oh? Sekundes? Yes, he was a pain in the *** D:
Lucky Indignation is a one-hit kill, and lucky Max has some powerful skills (namely Aqua Spiral). Otherwise I don't know how I could possibly battle him.

I didn't dare to battle him in the Hard mode. The only battles (Grater Craymels) that I didn't battle in Hard mode was Undine (didn't know there was a Hard mode at that time), Efreet, Sekundes and Maxwell. All others were done in Hard mode.

Isn't anyone else joining? D:

Sapphire Phoenix
13th December 2008, 10:23 PM
ZOMG I'm joining!!!

1. what tales of games have you played?
Tales of Phantasia, Tales of Symphonia, and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

2. Name your favorite two Characters form any games and why?
ToS & ToS2: Zelos - I like how he's comic relief and such. I also like using him in ToS.
ToS2: Emil - I've played a lot of video games, and all the main characters are starting to blend together. Emil is a nice change of pace since he whines alot :p

3. Name Your least favorite two characters form any games and why?
Well... I can't really think of two I don't like. I like them all equality (which is really rare for me since I usually find one I hate.)

4. Why do you like the Tales of series game?
The battle system is fun, I love the Tech/artes, and even though the plots are sometimes confusing, I love the plots.

darklord18
14th December 2008, 8:38 AM
Yeah you can join
I haven't play Tales of symphonia: dawn of the new world. what it like?
Zelos reminds me of Brock.
And thank for arceus03 for the info, I just add in now.

Symphonia 2 isn't as good as the original, but it's still good. You have to awaken Centarions (I spelled it wrong.) in order to wake up Ratatosk, the Summon Spirit of the old Kharlan Tree and put the world back into order. Of course, people are trying to stop you and stuff. Lloyd posed as a bad guy in the game... You can capture monsters and have them fight with you in battle, but it's a pain to get them in the first place :/

Only three of the original voice actors from ToS return. That's Presea's, Colette's, and Kratos' (ironically, Kratos only acts as the narrator in the beginning, and appears in one spot.) Everyone else has new voices. Lloyd, Sheena and Zelos are the hardest to get use too... LLoyd's makes my ears bleed :o

Honestly, I can go on about ToS2.

arceus03
15th December 2008, 4:31 AM
Tales of Symphonia seems fun. Wish I can play it :x

It's only in Japanese, right? Sapphire Phoenix?

I wonder what are we going to do here apart from creating topic. Maybe answering questions regarding games/anime, but as we all play different series it's not so practical.

Any ideas about what we should do? Maybe, like, creating your own.. character/magic/skills? :x



The battle system is fun, I love the Tech/artes, and even though the plots are sometimes confusing, I love the plots.

Agreed. The plot is so full of twist. E.g in ToP later in the end it was actually revealed that Dhaos was battling to save his planet D: Poor guy.

Have you watched the animations yet?
I'm done with Tales of Phantasia, soon starting on ToE and ToS the OVA.

darklord18
15th December 2008, 7:11 AM
/\ I agree let create a character here how it would set out. If you want to help make better let me know.

Name;
Age;
what He look like;
weapon (can have 2 different type of weapons};
Tech/art/spell max 15;
Hi-ogui max 3;

I do my later


You can capture monsters and have them fight with you in battle, but it's a pain to get them in the first place :/
Yes finally I can have a monsters fight with you, cool but Sapphire phoenix, How are the Hi ogui? are they better than Tales of the world RM where it like a normal art with no cut in and such as there are in Abyss, etc and I think I know who Loyd voice actor is.


:x

Agreed. The plot is so full of twist. E.g in ToP later in the end it was actually revealed that Dhaos was battling to save his planet D: Poor guy.

In ToS near the halfway point of the game, you find out that the ancient hero Mithos is the main bad guy and then near the end you find out why he did everything he did because he loses his younger sister. poor guy. I hop this is right as I haven't play it in awhile.



Tales of Symphonia seems fun. Wish I can play it
It's only in Japanese, right? Sapphire Phoenix?
it on Gamecube outside Japaneses and both Gamecube and PS2 in Japanese. but it fun, but the final boss was a joke. Right Sapphire Phoenix.

To the topic no I haven't seen the animations. and thanks for the banner I use it later if I can remember how to do link a picture with a thread..

arceus03
15th December 2008, 2:41 PM
I've an idea. Say, we all (3 of us XD I really hope many more joins soon) pick our own job, i.e warrior, mage, healer, archer etc then we create our own self. Then you can put them on first post besides the members' names.

E.g
arceus03 (Healer)

The word "(Healer)" comes with a link of our own post about that. And you'll have to make some rules about that on the first post, too. For example, spells can't obviously be too powerful, etc.

Oh, if someone wants to be a spirit/greater Craymel, he/she can do so, too. Just include information about appearance, element associated and action when summoned.

One more. darklord18, don't 15 max spells seem too.. much? I mean, there are a lot of spells already out there, so maybe less than 10 is fine, I dunno... Like, what other spells a Healer could possibly have, when First Aid, Cure, Heal, Resurrection, Revitalize is already there? :x

Zora
15th December 2008, 10:44 PM
Join first, read thread beyond post one later :D (sorry, I love the series).

1. what tales of games have you played?

Phantasia (PSP version though ;)), Eternia, Destiny, Symphonia, Legendia, Abyss, Rebirth, Vesperia. I also own Destiny II, but waiting until I finish Destiny. Also, I barely started Destiny or Legendia, plan to get through Destiny soon.

2. Name your favorite two Characters form any games and why?

Jade and Yuri. Jade is just incredibly humorous and all-around a great character, while Yuri is just a great protagonist, unlike some other whiny protagonists I know (*coughlloydcough*)

3. Name Your least favorite two characters form any games and why?

Collete and Asch. Collete because she is annoying and causes you to go some of the more annoying dungeons in the game, and Asch because he is just so stuck-up you get sick of it.

4. Why do you like the Tales of series game?

Battle system mainly, especially Rebirth's. I also like Abyss's and Vesperia's stories, although the others don't seem exceptional. It's just a fun ARPG IMO.


Symphonia 2 isn't as good as the original, but it's still good

Probably because it didn't begin off as a sequel and began off as a spin-off (actually, it is a spin-off, just the plot is a sequel to a canon game). Haven't played it yet though, plan to get it for Christmas, along with an imported Innocence.

Sapphire Phoenix
16th December 2008, 2:25 AM
Yes finally I can have a monsters fight with you, cool but Sapphire phoenix, How are the Hi ogui? are they better than Tales of the world RM where it like a normal art with no cut in and such as there are in Abyss, etc and I think I know who Loyd voice actor is.
I've never seen the TotWRM or Abyss, but there is hi-ougi You activate it by holding B when you activate a Unison Attack (pressing C on the nunchuck when the bar is filled up) If you did right, you'll get a Hi-Ougi attack with a cut it anime thing. They're fun to watch but they cause a load of TP. Out of the 16 Hi-Ougi in the game, I've only seen... 7 (4 of them were Bosses...Yes, the certain bosses use Hi-Ougi). The original ToS cast is suppose to be able use them, but I've haven't been able to trigger one since you can't control the original ToS characters (you can switch to them in battle, but it's a pain to do)



In ToS near the halfway point of the game, you find out that the ancient hero Mithos is the main bad guy and then near the end you find out why he did everything he did because he loses his younger sister. poor guy. I hop this is right as I haven't play it in awhile.
He's a sadistic freak. Honestly, get over it. I do not get the last (very last) boss at all. What the heck is he suppose to be?



it on Gamecube outside Japaneses and both Gamecube and PS2 in Japanese. but it fun, but the final boss was a joke. Right Sapphire Phoenix.
Yep. Seriously. The boss was... unusual. And the whole ending confused me sooo much.


Probably because it didn't begin off as a sequel and began off as a spin-off (actually, it is a spin-off, just the plot is a sequel to a canon game).
Yeah, I forgot about that. It's as close as a ToS sequel as ToP was... (and ToP isn't a true-blue sequel since it has never been officially announced as one...)...ZOMG I'm confusing myself here x.X

I liek quotes...

Well, Tales of Symphonia just borrowed the Mana tree part and built off that to make a prequel. Any affiliation revolves around that Mana tree, with a few other things (where Origin is and that entire elf village and Ymir Forest, albeit the Ninja village isn't in ToS where it is in ToP). But ya, Symphonia mostly just alludes to Phantasia, it's mostly a stand alone game :p

darklord18
16th December 2008, 3:36 AM
Zora welcome to the club.
Ok I will think of a way to do it and put it soon as I can.

What I mean is that you can have up to 15 tech/art/spell total like 10 tech and five 5 spell. but with Hi-ogui you can only have 3 max inclubing the one like Luke one in Abyss (forgot what they are.) where you can do two after one another will count as two hi ogui. ok? and Zora welcome.

New Topic

What was the most annoying/funniest thing that you did in the game.
Battling that secret guy In ToS and have him in a 113 combo and the game stop and saids "Please put the ToS disc in." over and over again. even after taking the disc out and putting it back in.

Ya, but I've found that Symphonia 2 is a 'link' to the two games... even if it's a spin-off. Meh, it's pretty fun to see all the similar things about the three :D

Awesome! Finally a Tales club! Can I join?

1. what tales of games have you played?
Only Tales of Symphonia 1 and 2

2. Name your favorite two Characters form any games and why?
Colette and Sheena. I like Colettes personality, and Sheena has the whole Ninja Lady thing going on, which is cool. I also like Emil, because when he's not in Ratatosk mode, he is kinda like me.

3. Name Your least favorite two characters form any games and why?
Decus and Zelos. They're both just like.... ew. Alice is also one of the worst. I know she's not like 3. It's time she let the baby talk go.

4. Why do you like the Tales of series game?
The battle system is like the most fun from any games ever, and the storyline is always really good. It does a good job of getting you involved and interested in everything.

You mean we can use those big cut-scene type attack things like the ones Richter/Decus use? That's so cool! I have to go try!


Yep. Seriously. The boss was... unusual. And the whole ending confused me sooo much.

I loved TOS, but you're right when you say the ending was weird. I was SOOOO confused by the time it was all over. TOS 2 doesn't do a whole lot to clear everything about mithos up, so I'm STILL confused. @(O_o)@ I hate when the story gets so complicated I can't follow it.

What was the most annoying/funniest thing that you did in the game.

In TOS2 I keep almost getting killed by leeches!! It's the worst! They get like 2 or 3 together, and both do that spinny thing at the same time. I miss the block, and they both hit like 3 or 4 times for over 100 damage (I think that's right. It's close to that anyway). Anyway, I try to avoid them now, or atleast stay away when they come in groups.

The ending of ToS assumed that you played ToP (that is if you are referring to why the name of the tree wasn't stated?). The name if you curious is Yggdrasil

Yeah, I finished it. They named the tree Yggdrasil? Really?..... I know mithos/yddrasil were the same guys, I managed to get that (duh), but I didn't know they named the tree yddrasil.... Kinda weird lol. I need to play through it again.

It isn't stated in Tales of Symphonia, only Tales of Phantasia. They expected the fanbase (their Japanese one anyone) to know it.

Oh, and you guys know about this recent trailer, right: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crRmKsFJuTU&eurl If not, well now you do :p

It may be available in the U.S., but I've never tried it. Wish they'de keep that kind of info in the series instead of branching it off like that.

Wish I have ToS
I didn't understand what you were talking about O.o

This may seem a bit late, but..
Welcome to all ^_^;


What I mean is that you can have up to 15 tech/art/spell total like 10 tech and five 5 spell.
Oh, but can you have tech and spells at the same time? In ToD you can, but I dunno in other games.. In ToP and ToE you can't, IIRC.

Also great video Zora ^^
The music was sooo sad. The battle animation seems fun, too, as I've never played any of the series that have 3D battles before :x
lol at your sig XD

On topic:
I can't remember what was the funniest/annoying thing I did, but I do remember the funny skits. Like, when Arche peeked on Chester and about the picnic scene where Arche tries to cook XD

darklord18
16th December 2008, 9:56 AM
yes in ToS both Zelos and Kartos can both use tech and spells but Kartos is better in power while Zelos was faster at attacking and casting. To me anyway.

It isn't stated in Tales of Symphonia, only Tales of Phantasia. They expected the fanbase (their Japanese one anyone) to know it.

Yea, there is a show for Tales of Phantasia and i watched it and it takes place like 1000 or so years before Tales of Symhponia.

I never noticed a difference in casting speed. I don't think they were ever in a fight at the same time though so theres not a real good way to compare. I think Kratos is a little slower though, but stronger, and zelos is faster, but a little weaker. I hardly ever used either of them though. They were usually just my healers, and I almost never played them.

On a different note, has anyone ever played Colette and was actually good with her? No matter what I do I can't play her!

In ToS2 she still has Angel Feathers, but she doesn't have Holy Song.

Welcome Juu-San Bantai Taichou XD

Oh and I just noticed you're the co-owner, Sapphire. (Can I call you Sapphire or SP?) Congratulations :D

And... I don't know what Colette's powers are, but she was funny in the ToS OVA =P
What's her specialty? Warrior? Mage?

I'd love to join this!

1. What tales of games have you played?
Tales of Symphonia, Tales of the Abyss, Tales of Vesperia

2. Name your favorite two Characters form any games and why?
Kratos Aurion (Symphonia) and Asch the Bloody (Abyss) for their coolness and awesome moves.

3. Name Your least favorite two characters form any games and why?
I hate both Karol and Repede from Vesperia. They're cool characters, but their fighting sucks.

4. Why do you like the Tales of series game?
I like the 'Tales of' series because although each games follows a specific formula, they all have plots and characters that will keep you hooked for a long time.

I think Colette is meant to be more of a support fighter than one that is on the front lines, which is probably why I can't use her. She can use physical attacks, but I found her more useful with magic. But she also has a nice variety of other attacks. Pow hamer is one she tends to use alot, and item thief got me some nice stuff. She can go either way, it depends on what you need her for.

It isn't stated in Tales of Symphonia, only Tales of Phantasia. They expected the fanbase (their Japanese one anyone) to know it.

Oh, and you guys know about this recent trailer, right: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crRmKsFJuTU&eurl If not, well now you do :p

Yeah, I remember that they called it in ToP. Actually, I've heard that they mention the name in ToS: DotNW in a skit, but I've gotten said skit.

I don't use Colette much. Her health is lower compaired to others, and her attacks are... meh next to others. But I use Item Theif and her angel techs.

Ok I added the new memders.

Colette is only good for two thing. Her hi-ogui (Holy judgment) and her angle spells. But that what I think anyway. But I only use her when I can't use Kartos. But why did they get rid of her angle spell, that was a good thing about her. Dose she still have the wing?

Collete, She was a pain to use in ToS.

Well in ToS2, she still has some of her angel attacks (Angel Feathers is the only one that's gone. Ironically, she uses it in a scene in the game.) And yes, she still has her angel wings. Hehe, Zelos gets Judgement in ToS2, but no wings... *sighs*

I've missed a couple of topics, so I'll answer them :D

What boss (use spoiler tags if you need two. and no final boss) did you like?
Well, I like fighting... Richter in ToS2 (every time). Actually, I've managed to beat him this playthrough, thanks to 2x Exp. I also like fighting Lloyd in the beginning of ToS2 even if I get murdered (Lv. 50 VS a Lv. 2...) In ToS, I like fighting Kratos, Zelos (I've only fought him once since I hate... beating him.), and the Desian Bosses. I haven't played ToP in a long time, so I don't remember any of the bosses x.X

What was the most annoying/funniest thing that you did in the game.
Spent over 2 hours trying to figure out the stupid puzzle in Cape Fortress in ToS2. I hate that part with a passion.

What character did you have the hardest time using?
Colette in ToS2. She doesn't last long, and her attacks are weak. Suzu and Chester were harder to use since they were lower leveled when you got them in ToP. In ToS2... Colette again.

Zora
18th December 2008, 4:27 AM
What boss (use spoiler tags if you need two. and no final boss) did you like?

Hmmm... to be honest I don't like any boss more than others. Sync 3 is a good fight, I also like Asch 2.



What was the most annoying/funniest thing that you did in the game.

Annoying: Dealing with all those dungeons in Tales of Symphonia that are annoying (that hill with the bubble blowing flowers for example).



What character did you have the hardest time using?

Yuri. Took me awhile to get him down, simply because Vesperia is a bit more... clunky IMO.

Chii
18th December 2008, 4:41 AM
What boss (use spoiler tags if you need two. and no final boss) did you like?

I Like The Battle With Decus In TOS2

What was the most annoying/funniest thing that you did in the game.

Annoying: You are in a dungeon and you go to battle the boss you die and you forgot to save your game and it was a really hard dungeon.

What character did you have the hardest time using?

Colette, in TOS and TOS2. So hard to use.

arceus03
18th December 2008, 8:15 AM
What was the most annoying/funniest thing that you did in the game.

Oh yeah. Reading what Chii said, one more: The Nereid's Dungeon in Tales of Eternia. The whole dungeon was a puzzle, the paths are never two alike. There's not a direct path at all, sometimes you just get lucky and will find the portal that leads to the boss's battle, other times the paths lead you to some items. You can't use items except in battle, you can only use one character per floor, that once you used that character you can't use him again, so I had to save Reid and Farah for harder enemies at the upper floors, and use weaker characters on the first three floors (I used Meredy, Keele and Chat).

What character did you have the hardest time using?
Keele in ToE >_>
I HAD to use him once in the Nereid's Dungeon against the Fire Elementler (IIRC) and it was so frustrating. He didn't have time to cast a spell, even with a Mystic Symbol equipped as you have to tap the joypad in certain direction to speed him up more, and all the time he kept getting pwned by Explode. The only way to survive was by equipping him with x2 Flare Mantle (he'll get damaged by Explode at most with 1 HP XD ) and kill the flunky (a Gas Cloud) physically, hitting with his rod all the time as the flunky keeps distracting him from finishing his spells. Once the flunky was out the Elementler seems to neglect all his magic and kicks around all the time so then you can cast magic. It was a long battle -_-

I'm still wondering whether or not to play the Japanese series. It won't be fun if you can't understand the whole thing, but... yeah..

Sapphire Phoenix you still haven't answered my question :x

Oh and welcome spongeaud and Glajummy.

Main chracter wise Yuiri from Vesperia he moves to slow for me.
What boss (use spoiler tags if you need two. and no final boss) did you like?
I love fight Asch from ToA the music is just so awesome and the whole reason your fighting is very deep and symbolic it makes it a way better fight.
What was the most annoying/funniest thing that you did in the game.
In almost every tales game the stinking world map would always get me lost and I would spend countless hours looking for a town/city until I finally give up and stop playing for a while or go look on gamefaqs but well I've gotten past all of them now so it's all good!

I'll have to think about that.

darklord18
19th December 2008, 2:20 AM
What's your favorite Tech/Arte/Skill?
spell is Indignation just love how it done (I hate how they did in ToL.) and a i like the chants and the fact that this is one thing that is in every tales of game. and is both a spell and Hi ogui and has a more powerful version call Indignation judgment.
Tech/art is sword rain series. easy to combo with.
Sapphire Phoenix dose that mage guy in ToS2 have Indignation and does he have a chant for it.

Sapphire Phoenix
19th December 2008, 2:31 AM
Mage guy? Well, none of the new characters can learn Indignation that I know of. Well... actually, one or two main bosses might have it, but none of the new characters you get can use it. Only Genis does at the end.

What's your favorite Tech/Arte/Skill?
ToS: Lightning Blade + Super Lightning Blade. I use it all the time when I'm Zelos (Kratos is too slow for my tastes). I also love Grave for some reason, Hell Pyre since it's awesome, Sword Rain Alpha since it's adds alot to the combo, and I absolutely love Judgement. I was in awe when I saw it in the ToS OVA.

ToS2: Er... Sword Rain, Phoenix Rush + Skill Ventus, Demon Fang + Tenebrae, Savage Reaper, Dual Death (or is it Duo Death?), Devil's Hellfire (It's a Hi-Ougi, but I love watching it), and Judgement again. Hehe, Zelos has a different chant for Judgement than Colette.

ToP: I can't remember them all... Meteor Storm, Sword Rain, Disortion Blade (I don't think that was it)

darklord18
19th December 2008, 2:45 AM
Genis, that it, so he only as it a Hi ogui or normal spell? (I don't really care it just my favorite spell. I really wish I can play Aybss.

arceus03
19th December 2008, 4:12 AM
What character did you have the hardest time using?
Oh, one more. Max. He's powerful, yes, especially with his Aqua Spiral ripping enemies to shreds and Elemental Master which is just pure pwnage, but he's sluggish. Slow..

What's your favorite Tech/Arte/Skill?
I've quite a lot XD

Indignation - This goes without saying. The animation for the Tales of the Abyss's Indignation was soooo flashy and cool <3 And in ToE while battling Sekundes, the extra chant was just so awesome. "Heaven's light, shine! Gates of hell, open your passage. Strike, lightning of the heavens"

Shooting Star is one of the best spells in the game,too. It hits everyone EVERYWHERE in the screen. No one can escape that spell. And if Maxwell is at L30, has maximum vitality and you cast Shooting Star, you get to control Arche for a while. But usually if Maxwell is at maximum vitality I'd just summon him then extend =D It's a hard choice, Arche and Maxwell Extension.

Another one that I like is Maxwell Extensions. Anyone who has played ToE would certainly agree. It's got awesome animations, good names (Maxwell Minimus, Eternity Swarm, Prismic Stars etc..) and if done until Blue Earth you get an additional 100,000 Exp Points at the end of the battle. Good for leveling up :D

The only spell that I like in ToP though was Extension. It does a huge amount of damage. And Pluto's summon, too. Hits around +800 DMG per hit, and hits about +15 times.

Again, there's quite a lot =P
1. Reid's Hi-ougi (Burning Phoenix, Dragon Demon Chaos, Omega Seal). They're so flashy~ I also love abusing his Neo Tempest Swarm. Gets a lot of combo in.
2. Farah's Maximum Burst, Fatal Fury & Flame Dance. The way she scream when executing Maximum Burst is just awesome, Fatal Fury is pure pwnage (lots of fiery hits yeah) and Flame Dance, although kinda hard to perform, looks quite good.
3. Cress's Sword Rain. But on later times I prefer Hell Pyre, it costs a lot of damage with just 10 TP. Also his secret skills which he got from Origin, Flamberge and Fen Beast also racks up a lot of hits, though TP consuming.

Oh oh! One more: Cress's Dark Blade. It's not so flashy, but does a huge amount of damage.

That's my rant about my favourite skills XD
And.. here's something, for anyone who's interested =P
Favourite Indignation video XD (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EXULyGlBKI) and ToE Secret Skills. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogvs5A_Etz8&feature=related)

Genis, that it, so he only as it a Hi ogui or normal spell? (I don't really care it just my favorite spell. I really wish I can play Aybss.
It's a Hi-Ougi in ToS2. Yeah, I just figured out how to get the ToS cast's Hi-Ougi. Yep... I've found a video of them all here (Includes ToS2 spoilers sorta... and the five bosses who have Hi-Ougi): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwDX4x9F8ak&feature=related The cut in of the old ToS cast are not in the game itself BTW. I love Zelos' soo much!! And the first Hi-Ougi is Devil's Hellfire, like I mentioned in my last post.

Meh, I'll just say that I'm close to beating ToS2 again. I'm at the very last dungeon.

So how did you find out? I can't wait to get it.

Sapphire Phoenix
20th December 2008, 12:49 AM
It's just the same way as I thought it: First, that character has to have the Skill 'Special' equipped before battle. In battle, and when the Unison Gauge is full, I have the character use either a spell or a high (powerful/advanced) tech/arte/skill. While that character uses that attack, I hold down B on the Wii Remote, and once the attack is over I press C on the Nunchuck (normally that would start a Unison Attack.) If I did it right, the screen would change and the Hi- Ougi would start. It's easier to do than I've put it... Yeah, they're fun to watch :D

I'll start another topic since I'm bored: What's the highest combo you've gotten?
241 in ToS2. Sword Rain Alpha helped a lot.

darklord18
20th December 2008, 12:55 AM

ToS 145 Sword rain +raining tiger blade+ air thrust then repeat then use Unison attack (cyclone, air thrust, ray and raining tiger blade + prism star.

I'll believe I'll join this club.

1. what tales of games have you played?
Just Symphonia. Though...it was two disks, so I think it counts as one loooong one.

2. Name your favorite two Characters form any games and why?
Raine and Kratos. Raine because she's just such a blatant realist, and she brings
nice dry humor to any situation. The Heals are nifty too.

Kratos is just a BAMF. He's just so inarguably logical in everything he does, it's impossible to refute him.

(It should be noted that Regal falls under that category as well. He's alot more fun to use too. Mirage, baby!)

3. Name Your least favorite two characters form any games and why?

Lloyd, though he's usually who I play, is a complete moron, lacking in most common sense.

Collette for primarily the same reasons, in addition to being a goody two-shoes and largely useless in battle.

4. Why do you like the Tales of series game?

It combines classic RPG elements with real time combat that allow you to strategize and put some finesse into your combat *cough*Regal*cough*. Not only that, but the story line is very unique, at least in symphonia. The bad guys turn out to be working for the good guys who are actually evil. And then some other initially evil guys turn out to be good, and the main characters you play are on just about no body's side, though they are probably the only really legit good guys. Dy-na-mic.

Welcome to teh club, Absol ^^



Lloyd, though he's usually who I play, is a complete moron, lacking in most common sense.


Most protagonists are >>
Cress, Reid etc... Dunno about Stahn though.

Highest combo:
578 hit on Tales of Phantasia. On Dhaos's final form I just pin him to the wall and abused Chaos Blade, just Chaos Blade so much until he dies. Once or twice I had Mint restore my TP using Pineapple Gel, and that was all. I got an extra 83594 Exp Point after the battle! Whew!

On another time I decided to combine Chaos Blade with Klaus's Pluto (it racks up quite high, hitting around 15 hits or so) and I got a bit lower, 342 hits.

The battle was done with Hard mode, as in Normal mode his HP would be too low to go up to 500 hits I guess. Hard mode battles in ToP increases the enemy's HP up to half, unlike in Tales of Eternia in which they only raise the HP up a bit.

In Tales of Eternia, though, the most nmuber of combo I managed to get in was just around 30 or so. Embarrassing, yeah. Supposedly you can go up to 999 by using Wind Blade + Ice Needles while battling Rem but I never managed to do that =( If you could manage to do that you'll get the title "Combo Master" IIRC.

I'm back! Comp sorta broke. Anyway, alot has happened since I was last here. Perhaps the best thing was that I figured out the hi- ougi thing works! It's pretty easy. I had to experiment with it to find the best arcane arte to make it work, but i got it. I takes a nice chunk out of boss battles, so it helps alot. I also noticed there are some new topics up now, so I'll go ahead and answer them.

What character did you have the hardest time using?
Colette was the only one I couldn't get the hang of. I also had a hard time with Genis, and Raine. I'm too impatient to use spells, and I'm used to being on the frontlines. When I'm not there I get confused.

What was the most annoying/funniest thing that you did in the game.
I hate the Temple of Darkness and The temple of earth in ToS1. With it all dark and having to keep up with the little shadow lumps is a pain. I lost count of how many times I lost those things on the way down to the altar. The first time in the earth temple I had to go back to get the curry recipe, which took forever and was really annoying.

What boss (use spoiler tags if you need two. and no final boss) did you like?
The fight with Alice and Decus at the end of ToS2 was fun, but the fight with Kratos at the end of ToS1 is a close second.

What's your favorite Tech/Arte/Skill?
Sword Rain Alpha is definately my favorite arte. It's great for messing up bosses when they cast spells. My new favorite skill is Special. I love to use the hi-ougi.


What's the highest combo you've gotten?
No idea. I doubt it's very impressive, though.

Currently at Dhaos's castle (past) somewhere near the mysterious mirrors that you can warp inside.

I didn't remember what level, but it was around 35+ IIRC.

Remember about the creating character stuff in earlier posts? Someone wants to do so? I'm thinking along the lines of...

Name: [Obviously, your name. Or what you'd like to be called, doesn't mean your true name of course.]
Gender: [M/F]
Age: [lol. Not necessarily true age.]
Occupation: [Healer, mage, warrior...?]
Skills/Techs/Spells: [As darklord18 said, no more than 15. You could be creative and create your own too, but most spells are in the game so.. :x]
Description: [Tall, short, funny, serious, good leadership etc]
Weapon: [Axes, bow and arrows, rods, books, flutes etc]

Maybe. Just maybe. Dunno.

Nice, Chii. Are the spells the already existing ones or are they new ones you made up yourself? I think we should put descriptions (even for spells already in existence so people who don't play certain games [like me =P ] would know what it does). Short, eh? Ehehehe

And... for those who felt creative, maybe... a backstory? XD

Just an opinion.

Sapphire Phoenix
24th December 2008, 3:10 AM
My turn!

Name: Sapphire
Gender: Female... duh
Age: Er... 18
Occupation: Magic Dual Swordsman (Angel)
Skills/Techs/Spells: Judgement, First Aid, Grave, Sword Rain Alpha, Beast, Lightning Blade, Super Lightning Blade, Hell Pyre, Demon Fang, Guardian. Basically a mix of what Zelos and Lloyd can learn.
Description (Looks): Raven-black hair with natural bright red highlights that goes to the middle of her back. Pale skin, and sapphire-blue eyes. Her outfit is all black: a black scarf that wraps around her neck, a black shirt with diamond-cut outs on the side, and black pants. Under the scarf is a *gasp* Cruxis Crystal, but not an average one. It's silver with a blue gem: a complete opposite of a normal Cruxis Crystal.
Description (Personality): Sarcastic, serious and blunt. Undoubtfully loyal and trustworthy also. When her temper does flare, she can be a bit... savage.
Weapons: Dual Swords and magic. Can use bows but prefers not.
Ultimate Weapon: Midnight Sun: Two swords that are black as midnight. The hilts are black also, with detail, decorative designs. On each sword there is an Exsphere of a different color: one is blue while the other is red.
Backstory: (MAJOR TALES OF SYMPHONIA SPOILERS!!!) She is Zelos’ long lost sister. When she was a year old, she mysteriously disappeared from her crib during the night. Four years later, Zelos finds her leaning on Meltokio’s Armor Shop’s wall. He doesn’t realize that Sapphire is his sister though, but feels sorry for her and brings her home. Here he learns (from his mother) that she is his sister and Sapphire lives with him. Just a month later, their mother is killed by Seles’ mother, and another month later Seles dies of a terrible disease. They grow close through these events, and eventually they stick to each other’s side. Years pass in a blur. But one day the Wilder Siblings get an unexpected visitor: Yggrasill. He strikes up a deal with them: he wants them to spy on Lloyd and friends, and in return Zelos and Sapphire split the title of ‘Chosen’…
Hi-Ougi: Sacred Judgement (or could be call Judgement of Sacrifice): Calls forth searing light from the heavens to attack all enemies with a 100 hit percentage. But the attack costs an immense amount of power, so some of the user's life force (AKA mana) is used up also. The more enemies, the more life force needed (too much and it'll kill the user). She chants:

'O Holy Light, take my life in sacifice and send these sinners to the deepest pit in Hell!' (<Terrible...)

Titles (Spoiler-ish):
Backup Chosen
---One who shares the title of Tethe’alla Chosen. Who would have though it was possible.
Selfish Girl
---One who only cares about herself and her brother. Don’t ask her to heal you… ‘cause she won’t.
Betrayer
---I betrayed everyone for my selfish goals... I don’t deserve to be forgiven…
Zombie
---One who has cheated Death, but just barely… Maybe she was better off…
Revenge
---They say those in rage are blinded by it… which is true for my case…
Goddess (Gotten at Lv. 100)
---Her blows causes earthquakes, her magic sears the heavens themselves. It’s fitting to call her a goddess…
Stubborn
---So what if I’ve used the same swords for a while! It‘s called loyalty! I’m not stubborn!
Angel of Death (Fire Emblem-ish Title)
---She holds your life in the palm of her hand. Will you walk away? Or will you be thrown onto the corpse pile? She is the Angel of Death on the battlefield.
Hi-Commander (Fire Emblem-ish Title)
---Hi-Commander? Why not one of the Four Riders? I bet Ashnard made that up on the spot…
Blood Bond (Fire Emblem-ish Title)
--- ‘…It’s when one blood line is bonded to another. It’s like marriage, but deadlier…’

The backstory is basically the character's story in this fic I want to write... and the Fire Emblem titles are titles she would get if she was in a Fire Emblem game *coughPathofRadiancecough* if the FE games had titles.

Yeah! We might as well do those! Only one Hi-Ougi attack and... 15 titles (more or less is ok)! We should also do outfits as well. I'll think of mine later...

darklord18
25th December 2008, 12:40 AM
only I hi ogui? ow well I just edits my now. And for hi ogui if it a spell, should we give a spell chant like the character do? and for titles, give a little detail on it like they do in the game.

Sapphire Phoenix
25th December 2008, 12:50 AM
Well, characters only have one Hi-Ougi in the games... but I guess one can have two if the circumstances are different (like the Character has 20% or less of their health to activate one, while the other can be performed normally) And if it's a spell, you can give a chant if you want to. I really have to think about the Hi-Ougi for my character.

darklord18
25th December 2008, 1:05 AM
yeah but should this be in a role playing thread?

Sapphire Phoenix
25th December 2008, 1:10 AM
Well, it depends. This is our current topic, so we can go into detail about it. But it could also pass as something that should belong in a role playing thread... maybe if we have another topic to go along with it, then it would be as bad... Ah, new topic to go along with the character creation thing:

??? I thought most characters had one standard Mystic Arte/Hi-Ougi and then one other one, usually second playthrough Mystic Arte with special conditions and unique activation.




What Tales of Game do you want to play, but can't?

Destiny Remake. I am working on that however and will get it very soon, but still. Innocence also, but I should be getting that soon.

Anyways, I got Tales of Symphonia DotNW today for Christmas. Emil is laughably terrible as a protagonist IMO, and the dialog is equally laughable. The game is starting, but seems like it may end up being my least favorite. However, I will continue playing it. However, since the game is a spin-off (albeit, the story is strongly related to a canon game), I was expecting much. I imagine though I will end up liking the game, just won't be close to my favorite.

Edit: Okay, I am past the first dungeon right now. The tutorials felt unnecassary and murdered the pacing of that dungeon. But afterwards, the game is starting to become respectable. Main character isn't that annoying, just a tad more than emo Luke fon Fabre (the one at the beginning of part 3 in Tales of the Abyss), but tolerable. The combat is quite fun, a lot more smooth albeit easier than Vesperia's (or hell, Abyss's for that matter) IMO. Story has a nice pacing to it, and really it is somewhat nice not having to deal with the overworld. It definitely improves vastly after the first dungeon, which is just horrid IMO. However, the story is fairly predictable so far.

I love Emil's art design though. His hair point is annoying, but otherwise one of my favorite designs thus far. Just saying...

Merry Christmas to all tales fans.

They use to only have one but after Destiny 2 they started to give character two Hi ougi/Mystic art but most still have one.

What spell Chant did you like the most. (Hi-ougi spell count as well but use spoiler if need.)
I like the Indignation (I haven't heard the ToS2 one but I like Jade the Best so far.).

Chii
26th December 2008, 3:46 AM
For Genis in ToS2 When he chants the spell Indignation, its the same as the first. "From the Land of the living, I call upon thee from the land of the dead, to unleash thy fury of thunder... Yeah thats it -_-

Well I'm playing ToA for the third time and thanks to 10x exp. my team are all in the low 60's and I'm maybe less than half way done.

Basically everything that I haven't played. That would be all the non-Nintendo console Tales of games. But I really want to play Vesperia and Abyss.

What spell Chant did you like the most. (Hi-ougi spell count as well but use spoiler if need.)
I like both chants for Judgement in ToS and ToS2. I basically have them memorized... I also like Photon, and Revive... Hi-Ougi wise, I like (all from ToS2) Marta's, Colette's, and Brute's. Raine's and Alice's are ok.

arceus03
27th December 2008, 1:22 AM
Wanted game~
I'd like to play Tales of the Abyss (the Indignation animation is flashy) and Tales of Symphonia.

Spell chant topic:
In the 2 games that I played there was only ONE spell with a chant XD So yeah.. It was Indignation in Tales of Eternia, and the only time it has a chant was in the battle against Sekundes, when he's 1/2 HP left. "Heavens light, shine. Gates of hell, open your passage..."

Oh darklord18, you should put the character-creating form in the first post, with something along the lines of "By joining, you can also create your own character" or something like that. And, for those who have already created their character, you could put the post in the first page, too, beside the member's name. Let's see... for example:

darklord18 (Magic Swordsman (http://serebiiforums.com/showpost.php?p=9196838&postcount=71))

ho-hum~
I'll do mine later. It'll be a surprise. XD

Here's the picture of mah character.

Those who read/watch MAR would probably know who he is.

darklord18
27th December 2008, 2:41 AM
arceus03 please wait a couple more days. We will have it done in a couple of days. I promise.
Tales of the abyss indignation was so far 2 best hi ogui version of that spell. Who agree with me that indignation in ToL was the worst indignation of all time. (I seen a video of it.)

arceus03
27th December 2008, 2:15 PM
^Yeah I'm just giving mah opinion, I'm not telling you to do it asap :p
Hmmm... It does look a bit weird I guess, the Indignation from ToL. I mean, just a thin streak of lightning? So unlike the other series.

Did you make the banners on the first page Sapphire? Nice one :D The first page has improved a lot XD

Sapphire Phoenix
28th December 2008, 2:46 AM
Yep. All the banners on there were made by me :D and they all took me less than an hour ;)

Meh, I've never seen the animation from ToL... Huh, I've just noticed that Genius has Indignation as an attack AND as his Hi-Ougi :/

darklord18
28th December 2008, 2:55 AM
/\ What, so What the different? I like it better when had Indignation judgement though it was the only spell hi ogui not to have a chant.

Sapphire Phoenix
28th December 2008, 3:06 AM
Well, The Hi-Ougi version is probably better. I can't remember the spell version, but I think it's the same as ToS's, where the Hi-Ougi is grander, cooler, and has a 100&#37; chance of hitting all the enemies on the field...

darklord18
28th December 2008, 3:12 AM
/\ Your lucky, you can play ToS2.
But yeah, how many version of that spell are there?

Sapphiredragon929
28th December 2008, 6:34 PM
Um..I would like to join!

1. What “Tales of” games have you played?
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn Of A New Era. I got it for Xmas, it wasn't even near my wishlist...but I got hooked. And I'm not leaving the place where you get a dragon until I get the little Chicken that's the first monster you see when you enter the mountian...

The Chapters are long....I'm still on Chapter One!

2. Name your two favorite characters from any of the games and why.

Marta- She's so adorable. She's kinda pretty, and I love her voice. Her actions towards Emil remind me of my own actions towards someone.

Alice- I'm an Alice fan. I only saw her once, but I love her. She's a sadist....how F&#37;@&ing awesome is that. And I love when she slaps Hawkie, "Don't. Ever. Talk. Back. To. Me." And the whole "I'm sure Brute will understand that accidents do happen." and "I'm so lucky I can kill two birdies with one stone" I wish that a girl like that can be real.

Colette- She seems nicec. And she's totally off-beat. She's kinda clumsy, and I love the end of battle scene with her, Marta, and Emil....

Colette: The true key the victory is love.

Emil: I guess we'll lose then

Colette: Then just fall in love with Marta

Marta: Colette you're a genius.

3. Name your two least favorite characters from any of the games and why.
Llyod- so far he's an @&&

Brute- I don't know WTF got into his underware but if it is enough to make Marta leave then I hate him.

4. Why do you like the “Tales of” series games?
It's a combo of all my favorite games. Catch/Train and evovle monsters like pokemon/ Rune Factory. Fighting like Final Fantasy. Great storyline, and it's funny

1st January 2009, 10:17 PM
I noticed I hadn't done this yet, and it looked like fun. So I decided to do it!

Name: Sora
Gender: M
Age: 18
Occupation: Magic Swordsmen (angel)
Skills/Techs/Spells: Beast Sword Rain, Healing circle, Judgement, Double Demon Fang, Guardian, Photon, Hell Pyre, Super Lightning Blade, Resurrection, Holy Song, Rising Tempest
Element: Light
Description (Looks): Tall, and strong, with short, jet-black hair, and bright blue eyes. Has light skin, but not pale. He wears white armor with gold trim and has angel wings that look kind of like Kratos's.
Description (Personality): The strong silent type. He's soft-spoken, and optimistic. He's also very resourceful, and clever. He's very hard on himself, and has very little confidence, so he depends on his friends to encourage him. He hardly ever gets angry, but he won't hesitate for stand what is right.
Backstory: He was found in the forest outside the village of the elves(can't remember its name), and was raised as an elf. at 14 he discovered that he was an angel, and at 18 he set out to find out who his real parents were.
Weapon: Longsword. He can also use a bow, but he prefers to be on the frontlines.
Ultimate Weapon: Demons Bane- Has a gold hilt, with a cruxis crystal engraved into it. Has a long bright silver blade that glows, and no matter how many battles it goes through, it never gets bloody.
Hi-Ougi/Mystic Art: Devils Hellfire (doesn't fit, but it's all I can think of. I'll replace it later.)

I think that's it.... I'll probly go back and edit it 9 or 10 times, but let me know what you think!

arceus03
2nd January 2009, 1:52 AM
Me too!

Name: Veezle
Gender: M
Age: From his looks, probably 70+
Element: Mother Nature (Gnome is Earth, so..)
Occupation: Summon spirit/Greater Craymel XD
Skills/Techs/Spells: Ehm. Vine Crop, Seed Trap, Sakura's Bloom.

Vine Crop
Small, sharp roots come out from the ground, cutting the enemies. Misses if the enemy is airborne. The weakest (basic) spell of Veezle, gotten by fringing at L1.

Seed Trap
Scatters seeds on the ground. Does nothing observable, but if an enemy steps on it a huge tree crops out suddenly, causing considerable damage. Even hits low-airborne enemies. May Stun them also. Gotten by fringing with Gnome at L12.

Sakura's Bloom
A huge cherry tree appears in the middle of the battlefield and shoots out cherries at all enemies in its range. Hits 10-15 times, each hit causes around 200-400 DMG. Has a high chance to Poison those hit afterward. Fringe with Maxwell (L26) to get.
Description (Looks): A bald old man, with a small tree on his head. Wears a big robe, and has quite a large nose. [LINKIE] (http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii159/arceus03/MAR_Veezle.jpg)
Description (Personality): A wise old man. Enjoys a chat with Maxwell in his free time. Often makes funny responses but gives good advices sometimes.
Backstory: A Greater Craymel doesn't have history XD But you found him in a cave (Cave of the Nature Termites lol) while seeking for something called Sapphire Dust (a key item for the game) and he recognizes Maxwell. Some funny skit occurs, then Maxwell asked him to join, but he wants to test your abilities first, and so... rumble!
Weapon: Just.. the tree.
Hi-Ougi/Mystic Art: Summon: Veezle.. ? (I think anyway. Spirit summoning)

A swirl of leaves comes forth, stabbing everyone in the vicinity, hitting once to thrice (depends), each hit around 1000-2000 DMG. May Poison/Stun the enemy and has a high critical hit rate. Afterward heals allies' HP by 10% over a fixed amount of time (until the battle ends)

Yeah, the final move might be a bit overkill -_-

Sapphire Phoenix

Yeah, but it's not the same one technically... You capture a certain monster, level it up and feed it food to evolve it. Then once you have this certain monster, you have it hold an item then feed it again to evolve into the Sword Dancer.

EDIT: Meh, I've editted my character creation thing... go to page four to see it since I'm too lazy to post the link x.x Some of it probably doesn't make sense, but I meant it to be. That person is for a fic I want to write...

ToS: The sword dancer was definately the most fun to fight, but I also like anything that gives good exp or alot of money.
ToS2: Fenrir, Sphinx, earth eater(I think? Whichever ones of those I have) and now the new sword dancer. Fenrir and Sphinx are currently my two strongest monsters, earth eater(?) has the highest hp of any of my monsters(9999), and the sword dancer looks cool. I'm about to go work on getting it. Hope it's not too hard get the stuff to synthesize its item...

Sokuram in Tales of Phantasia. They give somewhere around 16,000 EXP per fight, and like 30,000 Gald to go with the experience. It was fun leveling up in the Morlia Mineshaft.

In a way. Adding monsters to your team is kinda complicated. Theres a little wheel in the bottom left corner of the screen (I'll call it the element wheel) that has one big symbol in the middle, and like 5 or 6 little ones surrounding it. To add a monster to your team, you have to make the big symbol, and atleast 4 of the little symbols match. You can change the symbols by using elemental attacks. For example, early on in the game the only move with an element you'll have on your side is Marta, with first aid. First aids element is water. So for me to add a monster to my team, I would have to have her cast first aid until the big symbol was the water symbol, then i would make her do it several more times until 4 of the little symbols were water. That's enough to make pacts with some monsters, but having a certain element on the element wheel can also affect the pact. Later on in the game as more characters join your team, there will be many more elements. That can make it a little tough. All characters will have elemental attacks, so when you get them all into battle, and they're all using their elements at the same time, it's hard to get the same element onto the element wheel. It just takes alot of practice. Once you get a monster to consider making a pact with you, you can either just make a pact, or have one of the monsters on your team strengthen the pact. Either way the monster has a chance of running away. So I'm not 100% sure of the significance of strengthening the pact. After you have the monster on your team, you get it to grow by fighting with it. it gains exp just like the human characters do, and gains lvls like they do. Idk if they do, but it seems like they grow faster than the humans. Unlike the human characters though, you can't fight as the monsters. You can command them to use spells, or certain moves or do whatever, but you can't play them. Once they hit a certain lvl, they'll be able to evolve(you can tell by looking for the yellow monster face on their picture on the menu). When they can evolve, just take them to any Katz place, cook for them, and you'll be able to choose whether or not to evolve them after they eat.

I hope that helped with any monster questions you had!

Sapphire Phoenix
4th January 2009, 2:08 AM
^Strengthening the pact increases the chances of the monster joining your team. Of course, even with the best monster the one your trying to get to join still can run away.

darklord18

/\Man I really can't wait till I get ToS2
But came you rename monster. and what type of tech/arts can you teach them?

Raikou_fan
4th January 2009, 9:00 PM
/\ Nope, not as far as I know. They all come with a name, and they have it forever. Like the other characters, they'll learn skills/artes/techs as they lvl up, but there are things that you can use to teach them certain spells. Most of them have something to do with the summon spirits. Undines whisper teaches first aid, and so on and so forth. Thats actually the only one I can remember lol. but there are many others. Also, something i forgot, was that as you progress, you'll find manuscripts. All of them are labeled with a color. Gray manuscript(the weakest), gives the monster you use it on 100xp, while the rainbow manuscript(the strongest), give the monster 100,000xp. There are many in between those two, but I don't remember what color they are, or how much xp each gives. Sadly, you can't use the manuscripts on human characters... @(-_-)@ Don't be surprised if your monsters lvls are like 30 or 40 lvls higher than your humar characters. At the end of the game, my fenrir and my sphinx were both lvl 90, while my human characters were only 50.

Sapphire Phoenix
4th January 2009, 9:09 PM
^Yeah, but when you evolve a monster, their level goes back down to 1 and they only keep 20&#37; of their original stats. You'll have to keep evolving your monsters (and devolving, once they get to their highest evolution, you can evolve them back to the first/basic/weakest/whatever it's called evolution...) to get them high stats.

Raikou_fan
4th January 2009, 11:37 PM
/\ Yeah. I've kinda avoided evolving them back to the little form. I just keep feeding them lol. I'll eventually start to evolve them more once I get their evo items, but until then they make it SO easy to get xp on the second play through. @(^_^)@

darklord18
5th January 2009, 4:34 AM
/\ That because they know fans play through the games over and over so the EXP thing you can buy in the Garde shop after you beat the game once is so you can play through it on hard and all that. (I will do hard on ToS after I get over 6000 Garde points.) I tired beating the secret boss in ToS on hard and he should be call the final boss.

I've never went through ToS on hard mode before, but on ToS2 I am. It's easy with 10x Exp :D I'm only on chapter two, and my level is what you'd be at the very end of the game.

New topic: Do you run from battles?
In ToS and ToP: Yes. The battles are annoying (ToP is really annoying with battles). But in ToS2, I've only ran from three battles... out of 1,700+ fights over the course of three playthroughs.

I'm going to started playing hard mode but I think I only got 3000-4567 to buy thing on the new game plus.

Yes I did run from fight in ToE but in ToS never, even If I had low hp, I would still fight but I would block until Rain cast Nurse.

No not usually I try to fight as many as possible in dungeons and stuff to level up but I do try to avoid battles on the world map cause they usually don't level me up that much anyway.

Do you run from battles?

Sometimes. I can usually get around low hp, but if I won't benefit from the fight, it's not worth it. If I won't get good xp, or something else I want/need, I might as well go find something else that I will.

Running from battles?
Sometimes. In ToP when you're at a high level and have to go back to the first starting place I usually ran from weak enemies. But I don't from strong ones as they're the source of my leveling up XD

@darklord18: I dunno. I trained near the Seyfert Sanctuary (before heading to Celestia for the first time) until I got Omega Demon Chaos O.o

I love to train a lot, actually. When I battled Celsius I already had Rising - Burning Phoenix on Reid, and Farah already had Chi (though not Maximum Burst).

darklord18
9th January 2009, 12:29 PM

I know Ried Rising - Burning phoenix but I don't know how to do the other.

arceus03
10th January 2009, 1:48 AM
You mean extensions. XD

Omega Demon Chaos - Dragon Demon Chaos
Hurm yeah. Omega Demon Chaos to Dragon Demon Chaos is really hard, I've only managed to do it once or twice. It has a certain condition to extend, i.e you must have used ODC at least 130 times, and the enemy's HP must be below 2000 + the number of times you have used ODC. So let's say you have used ODC 500 times, you can only use it on an enemy that has less than 2500 HP. And as ODC hits 8 times, it's very hard to do. I managed to do it by using weaker weapons.

Omega Seal - Quasi Seal
Omega Seal is easier to do. You have to at least used it 50 times. Then, just before Reid slashes his sword, press the button to Omega Seal again to perform Quasi Seal. To avoid missing the moment to slash, I just tapped the button madly after performing Omega Seal. And, there are also certain conditions which must be met:

-The enemy must be the last enemy on screen.
-The enemy must be ON GROUND. If it's flying/jumping/airborne after being hit by some moves, it won't work.
-The enemy must have less than 50% wind resistance.
-The enemy must be light. Omega Seal doesn't work on heavy enemies.
-The enemy must have less than 20,000 HP.

More conditions needed, but far easier to do than Dragon Demon Chaos.

Chi - Maximum Burst (If you ever use Farah)
You must have at least used Chi 300 times and Fatal Fury 60 times. Then, while Farah is charging for her second blast, tap the button to extend to Maximum Burst. Again, to avoid missing the moment, I just tapped the button madly after performing Chi.

Deadly Force - Flame Dance
This is another hard skill. I'll quote from the walkthrough that I used :p


Use Deadly Force. The screen will turn black and the background music will stop.
While the screen is still black, run to your opponent and punch it two times,
then, perform a rising skill (like Swallow Dance) link it with a diving skill
(like Eagle Dive). If the enemy is still alive Flame Dance will be used.

Off topic: Farah is really lovely. I like using her. Most of the time I just jump up, do Eagle Rage, then Twin Palm Strike then either Chi and Maximum Burst or Fatal Fury. Gets a lot of hits every time if you press the buttons at the right time, as they all link to each other.

There are also the team skill extensions (fun to do), and Maxwell Extension (I assume you know how to do this?).

Also have you watched this? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_yCBmKF3zg)

It wasn't bad, so much as it was just annoying. In TOS, my first play through I had the WORST time with Magnus(I think thats his name. The desian cardinal by Palmacosta that uses all the fire attacks)! I tried over and over and over and I just couldn't beat him. I did eventually do it, but i had ran out of life bottles and Kratos was the only one left alive.

Well, either getting stuck in one spot for over an hour (this happened too many times in ToS and twice in ToS2) and getting murdered in a boss battle... *coughaliceanddecuscough* I also had a hard time with Remiel (Colette's fake dad...). I died three times during the A & D battle (first time Emil was the only human in my team, and he got MURDERED), and I think I died three or so times with Remiel... I can't remember why though :/

Nope, it doesn't have any magic except one. But you would like to give spell books to him.
Its tech:
Dual quadruplet: (four thrusts)
Dual quadruplet: (four slashes)
Dual quadruplet: (float while spin with four swords)
Naked Chimera: (Tackle)
Force palm: (chi)
Flame Torndado

Well, I guess two or three years ago I rented Tales of Symphonia from my local video store since I wanted a new game to play. It looked fun, and... yeah. I fell in love with the game, and I wanted to play more Tales. So I got Tales of Phantasia for Christmas... but that wasn't as fun (I still haven't beaten it yet x.x)... I really wish they'd make more Nintendo-system Tales of Games...

Pretty well the same as sapphire phoenix. Saw ToS in the rental store (Hollywood video)like 2 or 3 years ago, and thought it looked fun. I tried it and fell in love with it. First time I had ever seen a battle system like that, and the characters were so much fun!

1. What “Tales of” games have you played?
Tales of Symphonia, Tales of Phantasia for GBA (horrible, don't play it), Tales of the Abyss, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.

2. Name your two favorite characters from any of the games and why.
I have too many! I really like Alice from ToS2, although she's not playable. I haven't played Vesperia but I can tell Estelle is going to be one of my favorites too, just by what I've seen through videos and her character design.

3. Name your two least favorite characters from any of the games and why.
Hm...dubbed Colette. Her voice makes me cringe. And Regal. He never came off to me as a Tales character.

4. Why do you like the “Tales of” series games?

Welcome, Kana-chan and Zero-Wolf. Enjoy your time here ^^


Th new tales game is called Tales of Mothership. It's not coming out yet.


Nah. Mothership is the general name to all tales of Series. It's to differentiate between the main series and the side stories/spin offs/ Tales of the World series. I think, anyway. :x




I agree, Tales of Phantasia is horrible. The battle system is slow, and the constant encounters are annoying.

Hm, hm! And for EACH AND EVERY BATTLE, after you've finished beating the enemy, you get slow motion animations of the characters doing their winning pose. It's somewhat annoying.

The encounter rate is quite high in GBA, but very low in PSX. ._.

On topic:
Strangely, it was Tales of Phantasia that I first played. I was browsing GameSpot for Zelda games (was a huge Zelda fan at that time) and saw the ToP description. When I finished A Link to the Past, I thought I might try this game, and I like it ^^

I read about the frist tales games in a nintendo power magazine and after further reading up about it on the internet I went out and bought and loved it!
Then I bought Abyss and Legendia at the same time and fell in love with Tales games forever and ever time a new one came out I instantly bought it no questions asked!

arceus03
23rd January 2009, 4:54 AM
@ darklord18, here's how you do the extensions.


You must be in the 2nd playthrough (or have cheated to get Hardcore mode available). You then need to set the game for at least one battle to Hardcore. Win a battle in Hardcore (then you can reset the difficulty to normal if you want), to activate Maxwell Extensions.

Equip Meredy (or Keele, whoever has Maxwell), with the Derris Emblem (you get it after defeating Sekundes), and a Mental Ring (you should have one). You need to set the craymel mage (Meredy/Keele) to the first slot, so they become the controlling character in battle.

Maxwell must be set to a normal skill button, not a shortcut key. Also note that the extensions don't work on all enemies, though it does on most. If all enemies die during any extension, you cannot continue doing the rest after that one.

Now...

1. Summon Maxwell. While this is in effect, hold <- + SQUARE until Dual the Sol is executed.
2. While Dual the Sol is in effect, hold CIRCLE until Eternity Swarm is executed.
3. While Eternity Swarm is in effect, hold X until Prismic Stars is executed.
4. While Prismic Stars is in effect, hold TRIANGLE until Shining Gate is executed.
5. While Shining Gate is in effect, hold SQUARE until Explosion Nova is executed.
6. While Explosion Nova is in effect, hold TRIANGLE + CIRCLE until Maxwell Minimus is executed.
7. While Maxwell Minimus is in effect, hold SQUARE + X + CIRCLE until Dimension Material is executed.
8. While Dimension Material is in effect, hold SQUARE + X + CIRCLE + TRIANGLE until the enemy freezes a bit and Blue Earth will be executed.

Note that Blue Earth will only be executed if you have the Derris Emblem equipped and enough TP (hence you need the Mental Ring's regenerating feature.

Blue Earth does not do damage, rather, it restores your party's HP and TP by about 2000HP and 200TP multiply 5 times each and revives any fainted characters. It will give you 100,000 EXP after battle (on top of the normal EXP from the enemies).

Also, to get Hardcore without playing it all over again,


Create a NEW save (don't save over your current file), at the end of the ending and credits.

After you've created a NEW save file, it will say something like this: *Inferia. The * means it's a new game (from the start) but now you can understand Melnic (Meredy's language) right from the start, as well as some other stuff.

When you're taken back to the title screen, choose to load the save file you just created. As the Intro FMV is playing with Galenos walking in a forest, press Start. You'll see Reid walk in in-game graphics. Press Start+Select+L+R all simultaneously (altogether) and you'll be taken back to the Title Screen. Now choose to load the save file just before the boss (NOT the newly created one). When it's loaded, choose to save OVER it.. -so just save as if you were saving after having done a section of the game. Note how your save file now has a * in front of it as well. That means you've just cheated the game into thinking you've reached this far in a second playthrough, and you now have access to an Optional Dungeon: Nereid's Labyrinth and some other stuff too.

Yes, you need to have Maxwell at L30. And Maximum Vitality, too, so you can summon him (duh. XD )
Just in case you messed up somehow, save before engaging in a fight that you want to use the extensions on. IIRC only the Fake and the Elementler(s) can survive the full extension, so go fight those.

That fight at the end, with Marta and Lloyd was actually the hardest for me. Not difficulty, but i guess I got attached to Marta. Lol I found it hard to attack them.

They're talking about Raine blowing up ranches, and Colette is like 'The professor is a HE bomb?' (Or something like that). Then there's the one where Lloyd complaines about going up the Tower of Mana again, and he nearly breaks the fourth wall.

ToS2: There are a lot of them again. Like, the one when Sheena cooks and Emil almost cries ('It's just that... I didn't think that women can cook.') and... I just had it, but I forgot x.x

If you open the iron maiden before it grants its wish, you will be cursed. First you will experience a churning stomach illness, and diahhrea for 77 straight hours. Then, for the following 777 days, the king of demons will appear and stick his finger up your nose. Every. Single. Day. ~Presea Combatir

That was so funny to me the first time I heard it. It happens after you leave Altamira with Presea.

I laughed for a long time when I first heard that. The way she says that is so funny!!!

Here's just some of them:

ToS
"People fear and hate what is not normal, they despise those who are different. The solution is for everyone to become the same lifeless beings." -Mithos Yggdrasill
Just... wow.

ToS2
“HE bomb? Wouldn’t Raine be a SHE bomb?” - Emil
“Emil would give Colette a run for her money. (looks sideways)” - Sheena from Tales of Symphonia: DotNW (Skit)
Continuation of the skit from ToS that was talking about Raine being a HE bomb... It's only part of the skit though, since I can't remember it all x.x

Raine gives a love letter to Regal. She said, "You think it's a love letter" to Regal and grabs Genis to boat for Flanior.
And Decus gives beauty voice as girl or something to Emil and.

Second skit. I was thinking of that something crazy. That reminds of Zelos...-.-

Hullo. Did you miss me? XD

What skit did you like the most.

In Tales of Phantasia..
There's one when the group went to have a picnic at the limestone cave. Arche wants to cook, but her cooking is terrible XD

Also the hot bath scene at the Ninja village was funny.

In ToE,
There's quite a lot, but the ones I particularly remember was
1) When Keele was frozen when the party reached Port of Peruti. Wasn't actually funny, but seeing someone frozen like that...
2) Also in Peruti when the party wants to go to Celsius and were trying to find the right attire. Meredy + Cat Costume was funny. "Meredy is Katz. Meow!"

Humans are terrified of darkness...
Yet they fail to recognize the true darkness within their hearts. - Shadow

Epic.

Also that diarrhea quote was funny.

Okay, been too long without a post... New topic time again!

What was the hardest thing(fight, dungeon, etc) for you in any Tales game? Use spoilers if necessary.

The fight with the Album Atrum at the end of the twilight palace quest so far was the hardest for me. I was only lvl 76, with Marta lvl 75, a lvl 100 Fenrir, and a lvl 86 Sword dancer when I decided to start the quest. After I wiped out the other little monsters that fought with him, it took me like 30 mins to finish him. He regenerated hp so fast, and my mystic arte would sometimes barely do over 4000 dmg(how does that happen???). It took me 4 life bottles(I got careless a few times), 6 Melange gels, 5 lemon gels, and all together like 15 pineapple/orange gels. Also, I haven't done it yet, but Gladsheim looks like it'll be really tough. I haven't really tried it yet except going in for philosopher stones/rainbow manuscripts, but I can already tell it'll be tough.

Just did all that yesterday. I still haven't restocked on all those gels...

Remiel was hard for me when I first faced him. But that was when I didn't use Raine for healing so... you can imagine how that would turn out.

A) That boss in the Dystany (SP) Ruins... The whale would kill me in two hits.

B) The Cape Fortress puzzle involving the monster statues and switches. I spent over three hours trying to figure out how to open them.

C)T he Alice and Deceus Battle. I would get killed before I could heal. I died three times before finally beating them.

B) Gladsheim: You can get lost in that place, and you take a beating from the monsters.

I've never been to the Twilight Palace, so I can't say :/

For Gladsheim, You need Item finder 3 or statue(bird) I have 30 prism sword books. If you want to get an easier way to beat Gladsheim. Then go to Coliseum. If you have 10 exp. Gladsheim's floor is cap 9 then 10 is "Abyss".

It's really not hard, until you get to the Album Atrum at the end. He drops Marta and Emil's best weapons though, so it's worth it.

I did the same thing in ToS! I didn't realize how useful a good healer is until a good way into the 2nd disk lol.

in the Cape fortress why didn't you just read the little plaque thingie? Did you remember to get the philosopher stone?

I had a hard time with Decus and Alice too, luckily Alice made me mad with her little tyrade before the fight, so I killed her first. No healing artes for decus.

I'm working on gladsheim now. I found a site that says each floor is set on a 8x8 grid, so it helps to draw a map. I'll probly end up doing that. I got emil's weapon from the Album Atrum in Twilight palace, so now I'm gonna get Marta's.

For some reason I didn't fully read through the plaque, even though I read it a lot. And yeah, I got the stone... I used it to make the Dragon Flame so I can get mah Bakunawa :D

I tried drawing a map, but I did so poorly. That's what I get for not really paying attention of how I was drawing it :/


I don't bother with Marta's weapon... Heck, I don't even use her. I rather use Zelos, Lloyd, and one of my monsters :/

Yay bakunawa! I used it for Feral Shadow so I could get a Galf beast. Not the best monster in the game, but it's small enough not to get in my way, and fast enough to make up for the sword dancer.

I just finished Gladsheim a few mins ago. It wasn't even hard, it just took FOREVER!!! I'm glad I did it, now I can say I've done it. I didn't get Marta's wep though, just a cruddy little amethyst. I'll probably end up going back in after her wep sometime. I used graph paper for my maps, and it worked great. It got a little messy when I hit a dead end and had to turn around(happened alot), but other than that they really looked pretty good. I started with Emil lvl 91, Marta lvl 90, my sword dancer lvl 98 and my Galf beast lvl 100, it ended with Emil lvl 100, Marta lvl 99, sword dancer lvl 106, Galf beast lvl 107. I also got like 12 Philosopher stones, and 8 rainbow manuscripts(I only fought when i had to or when i was really bored). Even without Martas wep, I think it was still a very profitable trip.

Why don't you use Marta? Especially on your 2+ play through, if you had the 2x/5x exp thing she is always a way higher lvl than any of the other characters(besides monsters). She's my healer, and incase I should make a mistake, she's there to use life bottles.

I guess it's a habit from my first playthrough experiance. I'd have the old ToS Characters in my team for nostalgic reasons, and (if I had anymore space left) I'd use a monster whose design I liked... There was no room for Marta :/

Besides, after teaching my Bakunawa First Aid, I didn't really need Marta anymore (since the other characters would know Auto Item and instantly heal themselves with my gels). I'd also use either Raine or Zelos for healing as well (when they were in my party.)

When I got Twilight palace for my first time. So my party were lv 200, Emil, Marta, Ravenous, and Blade Rex or Weldin Wolf(ice werewolf). Marta's break was crazy because she had her skills and armors who have speed casts. Speed Cast 1(one),2(twice) and 3(one) I rather liked to rapid Prism Sword or Photon.

I gave all healing art books to my monsters.

1. What “Tales of” games have you played?
Tales of Symphonia, Tales of Phantasia (Lost interest in this one), ToS: Dawn of the New World. Tales of Vesperia

2. Name your two favorite characters from any of the games and why.
Presea: She's adorable! I'd love to cosplay her in her formal wear some year. Presea is a strong female character, something I love. I use her rather than Lloyd. I also have a thing for doll-like characters.
Zelos: I'm fond of characters that are good at magic and attacks, so Zelos is perfect<3 I use him rather than Raine for a healer. I love his personal, too; It's a great way to get Pellets<3 Plus, Zelos is hot.

3. Name your two least favorite characters from any of the games and why.
Karol: He annoys me. I hate how he pretends to be tough all the time. His only good point is Nice Aid Smash.
Regal: He's scary and hard to fight as. I don't like his personality.

4. Why do you like the “Tales of” series games?
I love the battle system and the side quests! I'm a side quest FANATIC!

What is your favorite weapon from any Tales game? Use spoilers if needed

Lloyds Material(I think) blades. I love the fire/ice elemental blade thing, and they look cool. They're perfect for that part of the story. =]

Emil's Nether Traitor sword. It looks cool, and it's really strong. It was hard to get, but it was definately worth the work. No monsters can stand up against it!

EDIT: Around 34 spoilers(counting quoted spoilers) in 2 pages! Yay?

Eternal Sword ftw~ The strongest available for Reid, unfortunately you have to beat Cress to get it. And I wanted to beat Cress with Arche, which can only be done AFTER you're don with the game once (hardcore mode access). So I got the Eternal Sword after beating Nereid =.=

Hero's Cane is hilarious. A cane which has a thrust and slash value? XD

I decided to go back and try to do all the side-quests in ToS1 that I hadn't ever really ever messed with before, so heres how it went.

I have the sword dancer in ToS2, so I knew they could be tough, but this was the first time I've ever fought the ToS1 sword dancer past the first time. The first and second times it wasn't that hard. I had Raine heal and cast photon when everyone was ok, Colette just stood back and cast angel feathers/other colette spells, Zelos healed some, but mostly helped me disrupt spells. The third time was different. It started out normal, I used a few life bottles, several miracle gels, then, it started to use magic. I knew it would, but when I tried to mess it up, I couldn't. Thats when I had Zelos quit healing so much and help attack. Anyway, by the end of the fight it went sorta like this:
It was down to 2000HP, I was out of Life bottles, and Colette was dead.
he did the spinny thing and killed Zelos (Raine now casts Revitalize)
I get him down to around 400HP
It kills me (Raine resurrects Zelos)
It starts to cast
Zelos kills it

Okay, the sword dancer was the only one really worth talking about. Abyssion and Maxwell(call it what you want, to me it's a side-quest. I'de never gotten Maxwell before) were both pretty easy, and the devils arms are awful.

Sapphire Phoenix
4th March 2009, 2:20 AM
I had a hard time beating the Sword Dancer the first time. Hehe, I first thought he wasn't that strong... but he completely owned me. I missed beating it the first time through, but I came back when I had 2x EXP kill him. Abyssion and Maxwell were different, since I beat them in the first time through...

Getting the Devil's Arms were annoying D:

Hey.

If you can change anything in the game (storyline, plot, weapons, etc) what would be your biggest change(s)?

Urm, for me,
For Tales of Phantasia, I'd change the storyline first. Like, an alternate ending where Mint uses her divine power to save Dhaos. It's be a fairer ending IMO, well at least Dhaos was battling for his planet, just as Cress and co. were doing.

Sapphire Phoenix

I'd have Zelos have his wings from the very start, so he could have them out in battle like Colette, as well as being able to use Judgement. I'd also take out the event where Colette is sick, and replace it with something more... epic. Plus I'd give Kratos more costumes and made the skits voiced :/

I'd have more monsters, add a monster book, made the overall plot longer somehow, added more side quests, made a Skit Archive like in ToS and I would have brought back costumes.

I'd update the graphics, added skits, made battles less frequent, etc...

ToS2 does have a monster book type thing. You just don't have to use magic lenses anymore.

I'de also give Zelos wings and angel spells, but other than that no complaints. @(^_^)@

First, I'de bring back the overworld(like in ToS1), and make story longer. Then I'de also add more monsters, more sidequests, and bring back the different costumes.

Oh snap, TALES OF SERIES? I'm so joining.

1. What “Tales of” games have you played?
Symphonia, Abyss, Eternia, Vesperia, Phantasia, and Narikiri Dungeons 3.

2. Name your two favorite characters from any of the games and why.
Zelos Wilder (Symphonia)--He's easily my favorite character. It's a general rule for me to love Tales of Redheads, and this Chosen fits the bill for all the quirks I love in a character: Vanity/Pride, "Wears a Mask/Carefully Crafted Facade", Player, Pretty Boy, Narcissistic and Intelligence. I just love Zelos~and it also helps that he's such a kickass character to play as.

Guy Cecil (Abyss)--The loyal best friend! Almost as much as Zelos, I have an undeniable love for Guy. His quirky love for Fontech and Fon machines just makes me go "Awww!" and I love how cute he gets when he speaks about them. I like how character background, and his sweet personality--ALSO HIS GYNOPHOBIA, of course. His interactions with Luke is possibly one of my favorite points in this game. And, just like Zelos, he's so badass to play with. And he has a nice one to boot. XD

3. Name your two least favorite characters from any of the games and why.

Pff, my least favorites? Probably Anise Tatlin and Mithos (NOT YGGDRASIL--I love Yggy).

Anise, I liked her at the BEGINNING of the game--when she was fawning over Luke. But when everyone (and their mom) had that little "Hate on Luke" session, that really p1ssed me off because she said the most hurtful things (and, at the moment in time, Luke was my favorite character)--and she was clearly being a hypocrite. She redeemed herself a little bit as the game drew to a close, but the beginning!Anise will always be my favorite.

And, as for Mithos...eh, he just kind of annoys me. =/ I had a reason...but it kinda just died.

4. Why do you like the “Tales of” series games?
One word: REDHEADS.

I never did like how much (or rather, how LITTLE) emotion the group showed after they killed Zelos. He had a scene, and then a skit and then that's it. =/ I'm way over this now, but this was something that bugged me the first couple of times I played ToS.

I can't believe I forgot that! It'd bug me too when they only had, like, one or two skits that showed their emotions about killing Zelos. I was mad too, so mad that I decided I'd never get that ending again... well, I sorta can't know since he's the character I use in battle and Kratos is too slow for my tastes :/

Remember when your in Flanoir after Lloyd finds out Kratos is his dad and Lloyd has an option to go outside the church with a friend, and whatever friend you chose would be possessed by Mithos? (Hopefully you know what I'm talking about since I don't think I explained it right ^^;; ) Well, there's an chance that you can go to the church with Kratos and have the scene with him. However, if you did pick that option, Zelos would stay behind after betraying you instead of going with Colette and that Desian woman... and you'll have to fight and kill him. It's not canon of course, or Zelos wouldn't have appeared in ToS2. But it's the only way to get Kratos' Locket... or whatever that item is called in ToS1. Kratos will also replace Zelos after you get make the pack with... I can't remember his name, but he's the one where Kratos has to sacrifice his mana in order to open the seal... the very last Summon Spirit.

I've taken that option once... and I probably never will again. :/

I think it's an optional part of the story. I've played through several times and I've never seen it. Like Sapphire Phoenix said, I guess you have to choose him or something.

I guess you have to have Kratos like you alot for him to appear. You'll know it's him when Lloyd says he's hearing someone calling his name (and it's voiced, so you'll hear Kratos' voice). Equipment wise, he'll have it with him when you get him (except for his sword since Lloyd has it for the Material Swords), but only Kratos can equip them... that I know of. And he'll get a title that allow him to wear his special Cruxis outfit 8D

I haven't complete collection book in TOS1....T_T I still miss one more thing. So it's called Cruxis Crystal. That's Zelos where he gives it to Llyod at Flanior before the final.
Anyone knows how to get that Cruxis Crystal?

/\ to make his friendship higher do quest like the mask title quest and for the ones like the party one where you pick one party member and are allow to talk to three other party member, you must talk or pick Zelos in those type of side quest. I don't know because i don't like Zelos but I did talk to him in the party side quest and the beach side quest at one time and he was able to pick him but I reset and pick Kartos.

Ohhh.. That's what I did before. But it didn't work as well. I played TOS 9 times.

I guess I need to search TOS1 on gamefaq.

Well, I like Lloyd's Pirate costume, as well as his and Sheena's outfit they would wear for that Princess Party thing... and Kratos' Cruxis outfit :D

Okay, I don't remember if there was a topic like this, so because I don't remember it, I'm either making a new one or bringing it back.

What is your favorite dungeon in any tales game?

I liked the temple of earth for some reason. I loved the earthquake sorcerer ring, and I had fun with the little curry gnomelett guys.

Twilight palace, and Gladsheim. I thought twilight palace was pretty, it was my first encounter with Album Atrum, I got my favorite weapon (Nether Traitor for Emil is awesome), and I got the kitty kat monster! Whats better than a kitty who trained as a ninja in Mizuho? Yeah, nothing! I hated Gladsheim when I was doing it. It took like all day, and I got bored just running through the maze forever. Looking back though, I actually had some fun with it, and it was one of the most challenging things I've ran into in a while.

I think we have... but whatever :D

What is your favorite dungeon in any tales game?

Probably the Triet Ruins since... I'm not really sure. I guess I like it's location :/ Many of ToS's dungeons hold bad memories for me...

Triet Ruins again!!! *shot*

*coughs* Well, I also like Dynasty Ruins and Gladsheim... like above, many of these dungeons I hate with a fiery passion intense as 1,000 suns... :o

Lol why do you hate so many of the dungeons? I had a tough time with some of them, but it was barely anything to worry about.

The only one I really didn't like was the temple of darkness. The little shadow blobs wouldn't stay with me, and I got confused moving the blocks around. I got all the blobs together, but by the time I got to the altar through the really dark area, I only had 1 with me...

What's your favorite costume in any Tales?
ToA-Jade rode costume nothing like fighting a serious boss battle in a rode!!
ToA - Guy dashing gent just making him even more hotter if thats possible (sorry the fan girl in me came out)

What is your favorite dungeon in any tales game?
In ToS the temple of lighting

In ToS2 the temple of darkness I wanted Tenabre back and it was easier than when you played it in the first game.

In ToA prolly the any of the place where the passage rings were they were always so pretty and easy to get through.

The main reason is because I had a hard time getting through them, and there would be some part where I would get stuck at. For example: I hate the Meltokio sewers because it took me a long time to figure out how to get around one of the garbage blocks when your pushing them on that narrow ledge... Then in the Tower of Mana the boss was where I first died in the game, and it took me at least three tries before I killed it. Little things like that stay with me.

They say first impressions are everything... D:

Temple of Lighting, that's a fun to cause an electric on any character. Or falling off the edge. I like it when saying "Weeee!" xD

Temple of Darkness and Twilight Palace.
Well...I like its style. That's matched Emil. I love the darkness.

I really hate Gladsheim. It took me 4 hours. >_>

What's your favorite costume in any Tales?
Zelos' Narcissist, the whole Abyss crews Final Battle Outfits (Especially Guy and Luke. ESPECIALLY Guy...man, he looks so sexy in his XD). Kratos' judgment also gets a mention too.

[insert Sheena's beach outfit here].

What is your favorite dungeon in any tales game?
I can tell you my most HATED dungeon. In Symphonia, the Gorge and the Forest made me freakin' angry.

For Abyss, the second gate (Radiation, I think) was my favorite. BECAUSE IT WAS EASY, and not ANNOYING like the Absorption gate.

Could I join? This is the first I've seen of a Tales club

1. What “Tales of” games have you played?
Phantasia, Symphonia, Legendia, Abyss, Symphonia DONW,

2. Name your two favorite characters from any of the games and why.
Sheena- Well aside from her fighting style I like her personality acting tough yet having a femine side.
Presea- Not much of a personality but I always control Presea more then any of the others. such a little powerhouse.

3. Name your two least favorite characters from any of the games and why.
Moses - I like his personality but I had a hard time controlling him.
Spinoza - hate him so much always running after getting caught eavesdropping >.>

4. Why do you like the “Tales of” series games?
The battle systems I think are some of the best around easily. I always can replay the games without growing bored of them, and I usually enjoy all of the playable characters.

LOLz. Hilarious.

Favourite dungeon
Don't think I've got one. I DO have the most annoying ones, but...
Oh wait. In Tales of Eternia, where you get Rem, that place is _quite_ easy. And seeing that you can heal at the crystal after battling Rem, it's a good place for leveling Rem up (and getting Indignation) before exiting. Well that's it I guess.

Oh, also, Shizel's Castle is very un-boss-like. It's so short. You fight 6 Elementlers, you get to Shizel. Unlike Dhaos's castle in Tales of Phantasia, with its secret paths, buttons, puzzles etc.

/\ or the ToS after getting pass some storyline events, you can fight weaker forms of the last boss and the dungeon was very hard on first run as I got lost.-

That picture funny.

We really need to be more creative than just making topics =.= It tends to get boring over time. Any ideas?test

Perhaps.. post your recent play, or something like that. It's been a long time since I played the game, anyhow :p But I just opened Tales of Phantasia this morning. The ending song is great, I love it XD

Anyway, off topic, I just got Platinum so I probably won't be playing any Tales game soon. Perhaps I'll replay Eternia, but that'd have to wait.

Or, any other things, creating banners, fanfic, etc. Someone?

Just an idea. lol

Despite how the place is dead, the owner has given up the club to the co-owner. With that, Sapphire Phoenix may remake the club unless they wish to hand it to someone else.

Closed upon owner's request.
