Get the Blademaster Frimelda in your clan

In order to get the Blademaster Frimelda in your clan yuo must complete a series of quests. They are listed below.

Under the weather

(answer I... Think so)

A chill in the night

Show of strength


Memories forged

Once you've completed memories forged frimelda will ask to join your clan. She has good stats, starts as a paladin, and has already masterd the duel-wield passive ability. You can't say no so only complete the quests if your sure you want her but she's worth it.

P.s. Once you have her give her the Fallen Angel,(second strongest sword in the game) and the high seraph's plume. Don't worry about finding these items you get them after completing Hunted.

Other Awesome Jobs For Humes

Here are some even better job combinations. I normaly have all my humes as ninjas because of the duel-wield ability, but once youve mastered duel-wield, switch them to parivir and give them the high magick abilities as there backup secondary action abilities. Magick Frenzy is awesome especially if you have duel-wield and katanas.

Power 2

In the beginning questioner chose BCB

Messed up Laws.

Some laws in the game require more than meets the eye, as it checks after each turn to see if you followed the law.

Some laws such as "No Harming [race]" can be bypassed by hitting them with Reaction abilities such as Counter and Blink Counter.

Laws against hitting distant units will be broken if you stand beside an enemy and manage to knock them back, such as with a random critical hit and abilities such as Rush.

Laws against not using MP are broken by using items. Not really sure how using an item = using MP, but whatever.

Hope this helped!

How to find out what you Need for each Job

It's really simple. All that you do is jo to 'change job', scroll over a job, (not the ??????? Ones) and hit the 'y' button. It will tell you everything you need to know. And if you want to find out which quests you need for certain jobs, go to the quest report thing and down to the bottom left corner; they are all in a group (if availible).

Fighter class

If you don't know you must master 3 solder action abilities, I highly recomend you do because fighter class is one of the best

Awesome Jobs For Bangaa

For my Bangaa clan members I make them into Tricksters or Dragoons and for their backup action abilities I give them the abilities of the listed job you didnt make them into
