- Zylo
- Pelle
- Kokichi
- Vankar
You pronounce it like wanker, but with a V. *shot* :p

- cajnatlie [on Vankar's pronounciation]
That is the most AWESOME knight in SF1! Clearly everyone's favorite knight to use in the game. He's so awesome.

If leveled properly, I think the best force for me could be...

Max
Tao
Lowe
Mae
Anri
Arthur
Zylo
Guntz
Domingo
Bleu
Musashi
Adam

Two Mages because I love both Tao and Anri... I picked Lowe as my Vicar just because he's the first you get and so you can train him sooner... Zylo and Guntz are attack and defense beasts respectively... Domingo is just the best thing ever... Bleu is hax... Musashi is hax... Adam, if trained, is awesome, too.

Though I've been too busy with solos and randomly generated forces to actually ever put together this team.

For my original force...
I have no idea whatsoever... o.o
It's been too long ago.

Edit...
Though I know I had Tao, Ken, Mae, Pelle, Hanzou, Alef, and Torasu in there...
That's 7 of them... I had at least one warrior, so either Luke or Gort... leaving 3 unknowns.
I may have had Diane... and I must've had Zylo...

So that makes...
Max
Tao
Ken
Mae
Pelle
Hanzou
Alef
Torasu
Diane
Zylo
Luke/Gort
?

Maybe I had both Luke and Gort, lol. :p
...or maybe I had Anri, but that could be personal bias in how much I think she's awesome, so I want to see her in my force. :damnit:

Replace Lowe with Khris and Adam with Kokichi. Then i think that's a very nice force.

As for original, as I said in other thread it's been far too long(16 years for this one) I'm sure some of y'all are in the same boat :D

First time I think I ended up with:

Max
Lowe (might have replaced him with Torasu, but I'm not 100% sure)
Mae
Ken
Tao
Anri
Luke/Gort (don't remember which, but only one of the two)
Pelle
Domingo
Zylo
Lyle
Hans (maybe Diane)

Something like that, anyways. This was so long ago...it's hard to recall. I didn't know about getting Jogurt, Guntz, Kokichi, Musashi, Arthur, or Hanzou. I wasn't very observant...I'm surprised I found Domingo.

I'd ditch Earnest and Pelle for Guntz and Luke/Gort.

I'm going to post again about best force, but following my normal play style's join/boot methods (though I've never done the no-more-than-one-of-every-class restriction before)...

If every time someone joined the force, I put them in the force (excluding Joghurt), and once someone was booted, they never came back... and if my final force had everyone being a different class... this would be what I'd have for my best final force...

Max [Chaos Breaker]; [White Ring]
Luke [Atlas Axe]; Atlas Axe; Heat Axe; [Speed Ring]
Hans [Buster Shot]; [Power Ring]
Arthur [Devil Lance]; Halberd :p
Zylo
Guntz* [Valkyrie]; Halberd
Bleu
Musashi [Doom Blade]; [Black Ring] :p
Alef [Demon Rod] :p
Torasu [Holy Staff]
Adam [Mobility Ring]
Hanzou [Katana]; [Evil Ring] :p

*Move boosted by Turbo Pepper

I decided to show item distribution, also... and as you can see, I like cursed items. :)

P.S. I promote at Level 20. :thumbsup:

Oh man. It's been a while. I'm not sure I ever put the best of the best together on one team in SF1, but I'll try to remember who I would normally have as my favorite team.

Max
Tao
Gong
Zylo
Anri
Torasu
Lowe
Luke
Gort
Balbaroy
Mae
And Diane I think.

Really that worked best for me. It's been a few years since I last played though, so I may try a different team. Since then I've played rotDD a few times and used a totally different team to my recollection, so yeah. Lol.

I've played Shining Force 1 a lot of times. Still play it once in a while. My first and favorite game of the Shining Series.

This was my force the last time I played.

Max
Mae
Guntz
Gort
Luke
Kokichi
Anri
Tao
Musashi
Hanzou
Zylo
Domingo

The original
Max
Mae
Ken
Gort
Anri
Tao
Hans
Diane
Domingo
Earnest
Musashi
Hanzou


Yea no healers at either one. :shock: Never needed any.Used the medical herb and healing seeds at early game. Late in game when Max got uber powerful with the Chaos Breaker and Evil ring, my soldiers were rarely attacked. But if they were, with the Shower of Cure and the White Ring everything was pretty much covered. :thumbsup:

Sorry for being kind of nitpicky and off topic, but are you soloing or just doing crazy amount of grinding against him? I usually don't manage to get to 20 until somewhere in chapter 6.

Anyway:

Original:
Max
Luke
Gort
Mae
Lowe
Tao
Khris
Anri
Zylo
Earnest
Pelle
Alef

Best:
Max
Mae
Tao
Khris
Anri
Arthur
Zylo
Guntz
Kokichi
Earnest
Bleu
Torasu/Alef (Depends on who I feel like leveling)

Trying to remember, the first force I used, something like this:

Max
Earnest
Arthur
Tao
Anri
Guntz
Domingo
Adam
Bleu
Gort
Luke
Musashi

I didn't bother with healers the first time through, for whatever reason I just didn't bother with them much. Even back then I wanted to level everyone up as much as possible. I was pleasantly surprised at what beasts Adam and Bleu became, and Musashi was so damn tough when he joined, couldn't not use him.
