I know you all have criticisms about my guide so tell them to me. I am updating the skills guide heavily. It is like starting from scratch. It will probably be finished early next year.

Hi, MrNobody.

Could you put in recharging into your guide?
That would be a big help for people who are just starting.

I just started a game testing your favourite Power Shot.
Let?s see if it really works better than sharpshoot!! Wink

If the power shot hits at least two people, it is far better than sharpshoot. But when battling one enemy, and especially when it is a Large one eg. the Final Boss, sharpshoot is much more effective.
I would use powershot in the first half of the game and after djan (the person who removes skill points), i would change to something more effective like magic bullet, dynamite or sharpshoot.

It does not make sense to calculate theoretical damage without factoring critical aspects such as damage bonuses/penalties (e.g. for large enemies), shields, and mana. Powershot, for example, while being a decent alternative for the beginning of the game, is almost useless in the later worlds due to shielded enemies (true also for dynamite, speedfire etc. for the same reason). Also, any ?fast? attack uses up mana more quickly and is therefore a lot less potent in medium/long battles than what you have calculated.

Moreover, you cannot only consider the skills in isolation since choosing one skill with a certain character often prevents you from choosing another skill with the character that is best suited for it.

The ultimate test of what skills work best is how fast they allow you to finish the game. With some optimizations of the strategy in my walkthrough (Peter - Sharpshoot, Zepher - Party Heal, Matthieu - HotG), I?ve managed to finish the game in 1 hour and 47 minutes:

World 1: 21 min

World 2: 22 min

World 3: 21 min

World 4: 27 min

World 5: 16 min

If you find a more efficient combination of skills, let me know.

I agree that would be the best combination. My first guide was horrible! I'll finish the new one soon. Sorry, I have school work!

You should do a speedrun of the game!
You know, where they record a game in the fastest time possible. Then post it on youtube or something, that'd be cool. :>

I did just that recently. The run turned out quite nicely. Hoping to have it hosted on freewareruns.com. Here's a link to the thread (and the movie files).

Can we all stay on topic? Anyway, version 2 of my skills guide is going to be available tomorrow. It is based on a program I've written. It is more accurate than the first one. I hope you will enjoy it. I'll be adding attack bonuses in a later version. I'll be updating the program along with the guide.
