    If you want more, you should try to complete all of the achivments for unlimited EIP so you can go for the bonus dungeons and get Shayle.

    I know this is meant only for collecting data but have to add my 2 cents – Eclipse of Illusion is ABSOLUTELY worth doing all the bonus material (though replaying the game on Hell mode is up to you. I did it, but I cheated with the most powerful magic spell and the accessory that makes all magic only cost 1 point… so Hell mode was easier than Hard… One caveat though, the game says if you want to play Hell mode you should first reach “x” level – they’re not kidding about that. Lower than that level and you’ll never make it through the Thieves’ Hideout.)

    Anyway, definitely do the bonus material for this game. You won’t regret it.

    All your base are

    You know what? I’m gonna do a base class only run when I replay this game for time. That means no purchasing class liscenses and no changing classes. Theo stays Scared Saber and Raya stays Storm Raider and etc. Robots are usable and I’ll pick up Shayle since I have her anyways.

    Got normal end and completed all bonus content including IAP dungeons.

    Tip: since the game is inspired by FF5’s job system, it has the deadly Spellblade + Rapid Fire + Dual Wield combo in the form of the Fighter’s charge + Ranger’s rapid fire + Ninja’s dual wield. Get two of your characters set up with this combo and you’re gold. Avoid the machinist job because its just weak and 2 Rapid-fire users + 2 Mages (one should have Wizard + Priest + Circular Breathing (Dualcast) and the other should have Wizard + Magick + Circular breathing or Priest)  is the ideal setup.

    That being said, this is short but sweet because the production value is pretty high for a Kemco RPG. The FF5 job system is pretty fun and lets you go to town making game-breaking combos and while its nice to have initial jobs that are worth leveling up, its not worth it staying in the default classes especially when the other jobs have better stat bonuses. The Summoned Armour (Mechs) are a nice gimmick but they stop being useful once you actually start mastering jobs and mixing up abilities to the point that you just use your Mech to tank heavy attacks and revert once the attack hits. The DPS from the mechs is incredibly low compared to the Rapid Fire and Dualcasting combos that have much higher DPS and buffs seem to only work on humans. The story is actually nice but it is odd in that you end up with villains you really can’t hate because they make far too many good points and given what is going on right now irl…. well yeah. The game actually does have VA but they’re mostly for attack screams and nothing else.

    Overall, a short and sweet game.

    That’s a good tip.  I played on Hell and didn’t even bother using the Summoned Armor.
