Given, Guy died a few times. Nonetheless, it's good having two healers and Jade on the team |D
The Hit Points on the monsters on Abyss are higher than Symphonia and Phantasia because more damage can be done to them and Mystic Artes. So some of the hit points might seem ridiculous but that really aren't.
I like using Guy 'cause he's the closest to Lloyd in terms of attacks XD; So Zelos and Kratos have similar attacks too, but Lloyd's got dual blades.
According to Shawn my team's slightly overleveled else I wouldn't've been able to beat the Behemoth twice XD; (Guy and Luke are 40 though I have Luke on the bench; everyone else is 37-39.) And for once, I didn't even intend on this happening. I mean, all I've been doing is hardly running away from whatever fight I encounter o3o
Now, one thing's for sure: I definitely like the Symphonia protags. more than the Phantasia/Abyss ones (Lloyd, Genis, Sheena, Presea, Zelos versus Arche, Chester, Suzu, Klaus versus Luke, Guy, Mieu, Asch). However, the Abyss antagonists are more likable o3o I also found myself pairing more people in Symphonia than Abyss (the only pairings in Abyss I support so far are Luke x Guy and Asch x Natalia whereas in Symphonia I like Lloyd x Sheena, Zelos x Sheena, Regal x Raine, Genis x Presea, Genis x Mithos, Zelos x Lloyd...).
The fact that I love most of the Abyss antagonists is actually a reason why I love Symphonia more haha. I mean... I love Mithos but other than the Zelos route he's really the only antagonist that you directly kill (twice sobsobsob). All the other ones suck and deserved to die so it's really fun killing them (I'm talking to you guys, Five Grand Cardinals. You all suck for your own reasons and thus killing you is a pleasure! ♥)
The Abyss antagonists though I love them except Mohs and Van really and thus it's all NO WHY DO YOU HAVE TO KILL YOU ALL. It makes me sad and makes fighting them less enjoyable.
Thus there is a higher number of enjoyable bosses in Symphonia than in Abyss. Yes my mind works a weird way leave me alone.
Guy is more like Lloyd because they're both faster. Luke on the other hand is more like Kratos and Zelos due to the fact that they're slower (and even more so because Luke and Asch are kind of like Kratos and Zelos in which you never really have them in your group at the same time. In Symphonia there is only one time and that is only if you choose the two of them to go with you in the Iselia Human Ranch).
and yes omg i'm not one of the only ones in the world who dislikes luke x tear if I read your post correctly. thank god.
Also Luke, Asch, Zelos, and Kratos all have red hair, hohoho.
Luke x Tear annoys me ><; Heck, if I were to ship Tear with anyone it'd be Legretta but who knows if that'll change... I can say that I so far do not ship Luke with any girl but if I had to it'd be with Anise despite the fact she was only interested in him 'cause he had access to a lot of moolah. Can't ship him with Natalia 'cause it's just too cute thinking about how Asch proposed to her when they were little, fff.
It's like trying to ship Kratos with anyone. I mean yes I ship Regal with Raine but did Regal get married and have a baby? No. Asch and Natalia are fiances so regardless of what happened to Asch it's still hard for me to ship Natalia with anyone else. I don't ship Luke with anyone either because Luke x Tear is nauseating and is rushed. I love Lloyd x Colette because they're childhood friends and thus it makes sense that they would have moments in the game (and if you don't like the two you can even avoid some of those times fff). But god Luke x Tear they shove it down your throat and I'm all 'fdksafgjks NO'.
My favorite pairing in Abyss is Guy x Noelle followed by Ion x Anise and Sync x Arietta. ♥
OK so I'm not the only one who likes Ion x Anise (forgot to add that earlier, fff). Crack ship would also be Anise x Arietta, ohohoho. On one forum's PO server Shawn usually goes by "Arietta, the Wild", Derk/Autumn/Winter/Gilgamesh/what have you sometimes uses "Anise, the Hyper", and I sometimes use "Ion", huhuhu. Gonna have to see about Guy x Noelle since I haven't known her that long. Then again, both do like their machinery... XD;
If I ship Kratos with anyone it's Anna but that's kind of obvious, fff.
Sadly Noelle is a pretty background character so she doesn't get much action. But regardless I love Guy x Noelle because fff fon machines and the event in which Guy gets his pilot costume. ♥
I wanna see Anna in one of the last two episodes of United World. I would love to see her not as a silhouette/blacked out/ etc etc anything that's not actually see what she looks like. And Kharlan Heroes. Loves me some Kharlan Heroes. I'll even take Zelos dying if it means more Kharlan Heroes. ;w;
Maybe a series of flashbacks, starting from his journey with Mithos and ending with Anna. idk. It's two more episodes now so they should have some room to squeeze in extra stuff. Give me Anna and Kharlan Heroes and I won't care how much they end up messing with the story fff.
