Part 24: Dreaming of KnuckleheadsChapter 23 - Dreaming that Knuckleheads1.31 is out, v the main brand-new addition being new tools for Edgar. I"ll it is in sticking with 1.30 since I"m virtually done v the video game anyway, yet if girlfriend haven"t checked the hack the end for yourself yet, might also do the now.

Now the we have actually Locke back, our first order of service is to raid Narshe.
But not prior to we bet Shadow"s an initial ninja blade for the Striker, i beg your pardon is supposedly a point you can do.
First, the guy who originally had Ragnarok.
Hey, it"s what ns do.
Instead of having actually to choose between an great sword and also an great spell, we"re choosing between two awesome swords. Both have actually a heavy 180 power and 10 Magic Block, and also both boost Magic through 7, exact same as the buyable decision Sword. These knives both use MP for guaranteed criticals though, with the Apocalypse (equippable through Terra) casting Flare and Illumina (equippable by Celes) casting Holy.I go v Illumina because I kinda see Celes as an ext the physics fighter of the two, even though there"s much better weapons because that her later on on. Thinking around it, probably I should"ve excellent Apocalypse instead. Five well, no biggie.
Instead the the Cursed Shield, we have the Hero Shield. It"s already a great shield, an increasing both defenses through 50 and also both evasions by 10, add to Vigor and Magic by 5.
It still provides Condemned status, though nothing nasty. The Printme claims it provides auto-regen, but that"s more than likely after it"s uncursed.Also, that Harpy will be a nice fury for Gau, due to the fact that it offers him Gigavolt, a nice bolt spell for him.
Also, i somehow motivated Shadow"s border break, and also I didn"t even notification it until taking screenshots.
We"ll perform this one a little later.
I perform a little of Veldt grind to obtain Gau some new rages.
With all that the end of the way, time because that our very first dungeon today, Cyan"s Soul. Locke"s comes along since he requirements to play catch-up, and Terra and Edgar space coming along due to the fact that they"re awesome.
Dream Stooges space still Dream Stooges.
So us follow some monsters loose based off 30"s-40"s comedians through jumping right into the spirit of a well-spoken man due to the fact that Final Fantasy.
First job is acquiring the party earlier together.
Suriander likes to counter strikes with Sneeze, remove a character from the battle. Pan Doras love to use Evil Toot to give all species of nasty standing effects.
Succubi most likely do miscellaneous too, however nothing too important I imagine.
The Dream Stooges follow a decent pattern. First, Curly gets reflect actors on him.
Meanwhile, the stooges will actors various strike spells at the party, like L3 elementals and Rasp.
Then they"ll bounce Delta attack off Curly to an additional character, dealing over 400 damage. A great chunk, though just single-target in ~ least. Also, occasionally I"ll drag things on long sufficient that Curly"s Reflect put on off, definition he self gets hit.Still, Delta Attack"s your peskiest attack, for this reason my goal is to kill Curly first.
Stooges room stooges, so there space some antics going on during the really battle.
After Curly"s down, that casts RegenX on the other two stooges.
And indigenous there, it it s okay a little bit crazy.
After this, it"s just Moe solo for awhile. He"ll begin using stuff favor Flare, but it"s quiet pretty simple.
After Moe goes down, Larry shows ago up. Still easy at this point.
And that"s the battle. Not too shabby, and I liked exactly how the slapstick obtained fleshed the end a bit.
Next is the Phantom Train. The actual music is just the train noise background, however that"s boring so here"s the complete theme.
Parasouls use Rasp and Flash Rain. Samurai are pretty nasty through hard-hitting physical attacks, Wind Slash, and an instant-death counter. Don"t recognize what Maidens do because they die easily.
The Guilt weighs under the chest to gain the Flameguard. Stunner is Shadow"s ideal ninja blade, boosting Speed through 7 and also the evasions by 10 while randomly inflicting Stop, i m sorry is candid usually an ext useful 보다 Instant fatality considering how countless undead exist.
Though the train take it me awhile due to the puzzles and also the increasingly-lengthy arbitrarily battles, there"s tiny to show off there, and also even much less to display off here.
None that these men do noþeles exciting.And yeah, Terra still has her extra Magitek options here. Fun fact for the initial version, if you bring Terra and also Gogo along, Gogo additionally has Terra"s extra Magitek stuff. Also, Umaro will simply use random beams in this part.
No brand-new enemies here, for this reason let"s look at Cyan"s most treasured memories.
If only my comrades in eight would learn patience whilst I charge my most sacred that bushido techniques...
OK, that"s boring. Let"s go murder a soul-possessing demon instead.
What, you think we were gonna survive the hack without another Iron Maiden reference?
So the Wrexsoul struggle was various in the original. You had to let one of your males die or something prior to he"d show up and let you beat him. Or something. I don"t really know since I would always just actors X-Zone instead.
There"s Meteo and also whatever this strike is.
Soul Fires counter assaults with Condemned.
Phoenix came in comfortable here, the course.
I beat him without yes, really trying to make use of the gimmick. Oh well, whatever worked out.
Your family members saved you huh? my family? i was talking about that trio of fools who retained trying to death each other! Those fellows need to endure every other, and that is enduring I could never hope to match.
And then Cyan"s wife and also child turn right into a katana the isn"t even the best in the game.
And for this reason Cyan conquers his demons and so forth.
Masamune increases Vigor and also Stamina through 7 and randomly counter-attacks. Learning all Bushido unlocks the L30 tempest (a slightly weaker version of the 4x assault bushido Flurry, except instead of inflicting Muddle it ignores defense) and also Cleave, which requires this search to unlock, which deserve to still potentially kill all foes top top the fight field. I"m yes, really hoping this baby functions well, since it"d probably cut my time wasted in arbitrarily battles by half at least.
Name: AlexanderCharacters: Celes, CyanStats: HP +60Spells: Demi (5), Quartr (4), divine (2)Both like the HP, Celes likes the spells.
As an intermission before the following dungeon, let"s execute the Gau"s father stuff.
...You think this senile old fool might be my father? exactly how depressing.
What"s wrong v my garments? i doubt the twit would also know the difference. I"m just searching for an pardon to acquire blasted, and also I hear Jidoor has some good cider houses.
I love this step just due to the fact that it"s most likely the only time the entire cast gets to bounce turn off each various other other 보다 the ending. You deserve to kinda-sorta see just how they can all it is in friends in a weird way, also though most of the time the party doesn"t really interact with each other besides pre-established relationships, a romance, a few developing friendships. Speaking of which, it also shows off the bond in between Sabin and Gau.I kinda great the initial did more of these type of scenes. It to be something FF5 did very well as result of its considerably smaller cast, and also it"s something the pops up kinda randomly in future games.
As tempted together I to be to include dialogue to the following scene, I"ll let it speak because that itself. The adhering to is native the hack itself:
*cough* that can"t wear them all...
I believed monks were an alleged to take a vow that silence. Nope.
i beg your pardon of these do you like? Oh! This is pretty too, but... Carry out you think it i do not care Gau? ...might also get the fitter for a monocle if you"re at it.
This cap wouldst be perfect. No, no. Just no. Gau prefer Mr. Thou"s hat... But... I am Cyan, retainer to the- not now, Cyan.
Gau look like clown... It"s perfect! practical yet sporty. We"re done.
excuse me, sir. Placed in one order because that a coat like mine.
Seriously, the above scene is among my favorite parts of the game. The initial version"s was crazy vague and also confusing since a the majority of text crate weren"t in reality attributed come anybody, and also the rewrite certainly makes it circulation a lot of better.
space you certain you couldn"t to buy me the monocle?
What the fuck!?
Cease, please! This you are fool isn"t worth the effort. Let that rot in his insane tiny world.
Say, "Shadow," doesn"t this speak that fatherhood make you think of, ns don"t know, any kind of children you may have? ...I don"t understand what you"re talking about. ...Of food you don"t.
...Happy that I gained away indigenous being elevated by that man. That knows what kind of crazy animal I could"ve become if i weren"t increased by monsters? That"s...one method to look in ~ it, i suppose. Come on, let"s go loot more stuff.
Next dungeon is the ancient Castle. Tho rotating my party so the everyone gets a turn.
Urchins can inflict Poison and use Blowfish. Sabin and Gau can do some pretty large damage in ~ this point, while Setzer deserve to still keep everyone healed quickly with Lagomorph.
Another Red lid is nice.
The can be fried tonberry, he"s quiet the same as the rest. Lots of HP, step Mine, deadly physical attack, you understand the deal by now.
The prize is the strongest dirk in the game. The Avenger increases evasion, Vigor, and Speed, and it"s holy-elemental. Zero likes every one of that.
The enemies are simple, and also most of the treasure no that exciting, therefore here"s the lock already.
Where"d you find out this? It"s no important.
Yeah, ns didn"t hear to a solitary word friend said. I"m just below for some rapid cash.
Mephisto will usage Quake, while Boxxy has actually innate Reflect and will use Disaster come inflict statuses.
Don"t know what castle do.
Katanasoul hits hard and also uses GP Toss and Wind cut to hit everyone for great damage.
Our reward currently is Locke"s can be fried weapon, the Valiant Edge, which tho gets more powerful the lower Locke"s HP is when ignoring defense.
Meanwhile, this is the can be fried staff, which can randomly actors Flare.
Rather than getting an esper and then upgrading it to an additional esper 2 minutes later, we have to restore Odin very first instead.
Still the very same trick to unlocking the hidden room together the original.
And currently we have actually Odin proper.Name: OdinCharacters: StragoStat Boosts: Magic +2Spells: rock (4), X-Zone (2)Finally, a pure +2 Magic esper for Strago, together if his magic wasn"t an effective enough. X-Zone"s likewise likely gonna be great for trivializing regular encounters.
I backtrack to the save suggest so I have the right to do the next dragon, and run throughout this guy. Not too scary, just Raze and also a pair other attacks.
Today"s dragon is Blue-D. He"s weak come Bolt, and also isn"t too difficult.He likes to actors Sleep and also SleepX, which isn"t too negative a status impact in this battle.
He"ll also use Blowfish, plus that does the usual dragon stuff choose countering with Water Claw and also Polarity. He can also use Dispel, and also of food he provides water-based attacks.
To change pace a bit, I have actually Gau use the Harpy rage for Gigavolt, i beg your pardon does comparable damage to his physicals and inflicts Seizure. So that"s nice.

I also have Shadow throw his Bolt Skeans because why not? They carry out pretty solid damage, approximately 3000 or so. Maybe currently I"ll actually usage Shadow"s Throw.
Another long-yet-easy fight. Our reward is the Zantetsuken, tied for strongest knife in the game. Guaranteed hit and also can instant kill, though it cleaves instead of just casting death. Quite reward.Next time, we"ll end up up the WoR by law Hidon"s Cave and Fanatics Tower, plus everything crap demands to it is in done.
