Hi guys. :P
I've decided to play Shining Force again (vanilla version, no mods), and considering I never did much grinding in this game, this time I decided I would make my force as overpowered as I could.
So I've promoted at 20 (mostly done at Balbazak) then rushed to the Chaos battle and I'm still there, grinding. At the moment my highest level character is Anri at Level 30 (too easy to get kills with Freeze 4), and up til this level she was still getting 48XP per robot kill. Now at 30 she gets 32 XP per robot kill which is still decent so I think I can still get her more levels before it's too insanely slow and I'll need to move to a battle with higher level monsters (probably Chimaeras). Some of my highest level char stats:
Anri (LV 30): HP 54, MP 87, ATT 43 (Guardian Staff), DEF 44, AGI 61
Arthur (LV 26): HP 77, MP 33, ATT 81 (Valkyrie), DEF 62, AGI 72
Domingo (LV 26): HP 59, MP 50, ATT 36, DEF 50, AGI 42
Max (LV 25): HP 78, MP 13, ATT 81 (Sword of Light), DEF 70, AGI 53
Tao (LV 22): HP 60, MP 85, ATT 40 (Guardian Staff), DEF 42, AGI 68
- Everyone was promoted at 20;
- Did not use any stat booster consumable;
- Did not save/reload to get better stats up til level 20 promoted (I don't think it helps much), past 20 promoted I do some reloading to avoid 0 stat gain level ups so the character gets at least 1 stat;
- Past Level 20 hardly gain any stats, mostly 1 point in a single stat, if anything.
What is the stat/level cap? With proper griding I think the healers can get to Level 99 (I'm using Khris/Gong). Has anyone of you done this? I want to try to get Anri and Tao (maybe Alef) to 99 MP too, if that's possible. Cheers. I'll post updates.
