Kirby games aren't hard in the first place. As long as the game is fun I don't give a shit how hard it is.
Grind them on merc missions. If you finish the chart you get the weapon points items which is great if you want to beef up your arts. If you're not into that then don't finish them.

I mean, Kirby games are meant to be an approachable platformer with a variety of gameplay to keep people interested.

There have been plenty of Kirby games that, while easy, at least kept the player involved and invested. The GBA and DS ones are supposedly pretty good, 64 was slow but had an even wider variety of gameplay and Air Ride is, in my book, the series' BOTW.
It just feels like this one didn't think out how the presence of four on-screen players would affect the difficulty curve with star allies

Air Ride, particularly the City Trial mode does an amazing job showing off how to make a 3D Kirby game.
They solve the innate slowness of kirby's movement in a larger 3D environment where forward motion isn't neccesarily obvious by giving you the Stars, the various vehicles in the game. These Stars, alongside his innate copy abilities, combine to let Kirby move quickly over a space while also maintaining the platforming gameplay since each star moves by default but can be stopped and charged for a burst of speed. Everybody Star also had a built in affinity for gliding, which did a good job of replacing Kirby's signature puffing. Given that Air Ride was originally going to be a full 3D Kirby game but got downgraded to a tech demo, it's not crazy to think maybe Sakurai would want to fulfill the promise it had

I'm not really surprised or disappointed by that. I can just gimp myself and not use 4 helpers or get the worst helpers an wail on stuff myself. Both good. I just wanna enjoy the soundtrack and dicking around with Kirby's abilities.

Why is the XC2 Wiki so useless? No maps, no locations of interest for quests, nothing.
The first game had people theorizing, adding and correcting Wiki entries in the comment section on almost every page. It was an extremely helpful resource during my first playthrough of XC for completing all of the Timed Quests.
I might even learn how to contribute after finishing this game because I find it sad how barren it is.

That part is honestly not that bad apart from the ones in the Work Observation Tower, entirely because of the Bunnit that spawns in to assist the Tirkins and can instantly inflict topple on you.

Kill Mik first.

CodeBuns

If you already died then you can go off and try to roll some blades on Morag and give her some aux cores. I recommend Jamming because Patroka mostly uses ranged attacks if I remember correctly.
Focus on Mikhail, he'll just taunt you onto him anyway if you don't.
When he gets to a certain amount of health he uses an attack that launches the entire party that's difficult to survive/avoid, so make sure you have either a chain attack or a level 4 special ready for when he does so you can use the invulnerability they give you to avoid the attack.
If you're really having a rough time, switch to playing as Nia so you have direct control over healing.

Something I didn’t get in the story. So Rex was able to open the doors in the ship and Spirit Crucible because he was supposedly a Leftherian. But he’s not native to Fonsett. His parents were going there and the villagers found him after his parents died. Plus, Fonsett was the village Adam founded so wouldn’t someone who could open those doors have to be from there. So wouldn’t that mean he’s not a Lefterian? Maybe I’m missing something.

Some faglord in a /v/ xenoblade thread was saying that Klaus' planet is Earth. The thread got put into autosage for no reason and died before I typed out my reply though, so I'll put it here on the vague chance he comes here or is already here.

The final area of Xenoblade 1 is not literally space, it's the spirit realm which is why you fight spirit versions of bosses there. The planets in the background represent the 7 archons (beings serving the gnostic demiurge) who guard the 7 planetary spheres making up our material reality, outside of which lies the eighth sphere, Pleroma which is where the real god(Monad) and the rest of the aeons exist.
They are fighting Xanxa, the demiurge, on his home turf, that's all it means. Also, saying that they're the planets from our solar system doesn't invalidate that Klaus' planet clearly doesn't have earth's geography in 1 or 2, and is never ever referred to as Earth.

From what I gather, nobody knows for sure and it's a plot hole at worst or bad writing at best. Or we're just all too low-IQ to truly grasp it, and in a year or two some hyper-autist is going to piece it together and blow everyone the fuck out.

There's a bunch of unclear details. There are implied to be other villages/towns on Leftheria but obviously we never see them because ingame isn't 1:1 with in-world. Rex's parents are wearing Tantalese clothing but it's unclear if they're actually from Tantal, or escaping from Tantal, or left Tantal long ago and just running from something non-Tantal related, etc.
It's also completely unclear why someone from Leftheria would be able to open the doors. Naturally the first assumption is because they'd be Adamm's descendants, but that actually makes no sense. Adamm founded Fonsett, he didn't start a bloodline there that eventually formed a village. He got a bunch of people unrelated to him to settle there. There's also no indication that he ever had children.
So being generous and assuming the crest really just needs someone who has lived an arbitrary amount of time on Fonsett, we don't know why that would be the case, how it would work, or why Jin didn't just set up in a Leftherian cabin for maybe a decade instead of jacking off in an Ardainian alleyway in order to obtain access to Adamm's crests.

Uraya, Gormott, Mor Ardain, and Leftheria all have areas and settlements that we simply never travel to. It's not that they don't exist and characters are simply lying, it's that the gameplay world we interact with doesn't exactly line up with what the world is truly like. Every game ever created does this and every game will continue doing this because creating an entire, real, to-scale world would be BORING to traverse. Remember the Gormotti sidequest where the Nopon wood supplier stops delivering to the girl because of trade tariffs due to Mor Ardain or some shit? The Nopon is like a 5 minute walk away from Torigoth, yet context suggests he's at least hours away from the city, arguably a day or more's worth of travel away.

I don't think so, but here's the two cutscenes that feature the planet from each games, if you can find any earth-like geography in either, I'd be interested to be proven wrong. Also if there are other cutscenes featuring the planet (not obscured by the cloud sea, of course) that I forgot, you can also correct me on that point.

In the first video at 0:37 there's some identifiable land in the background as it zooms in on the orbital station, but it doesn't look like anything from Earth that I'm aware of.

I was arguing that the only time Earth has appeared in the Xenoblade series is in X, and of course that's only in opening, really. And unfortunately we still have no idea how (or if at all) X connects to Xenoblade 1 and 2.

From what I gather, nobody knows for sure and it's a plot hole at worst or bad writing at best. Or we're just all too low-IQ to truly grasp it, and in a year or two some hyper-autist is going to piece it together and blow everyone the fuck out.

That’s kind of what I was thinking. Unless they pull some shinanigans in the DLC and “look,Rex is Addam’s Direct descendent”. Otherwise, it seems like a big hole since the whole reason the events of the game happen was because Malos and Jin needed a Leftherian and he was the closest one around.

hammers are redundant in general; theoretically they're only good on Tora, but that's obviously impossible so unless you want to turn another driver into a tank (which is basically pointless) they're mostly just good for merc missions/benchwarming.

You go to Tantal to get the Omega Fetter, which is Orphion’s control core. He’s why you couldn’t go to the World Tree in Chapter 3.
Canon’s nor explained, but Tantal has a lot of old Torna stuff
Tantal is the kingdom that was created when Torna fell. The Addam thing was a lie to seize power.
Addam not returning is never explained, but the king mentions he could have died on the way back. Likely for the DLC
Not explained why Pandoria can do that but Blades have a bunch of silly powers that are never specifically addressed.

>Why did we go to Tantel?
To ask the king for the Omega Fetter.
Why did the King need to kill Homura?
He thought Indol was going to use her against Tantal if they didn't give them the Omega Fetter, and that if he killed her it would intimidate them enough that Tantal could stop manufacturing the core chips and Genbu's ether flow would improve? Or something?
Who built a canon in Tantel and why?
The way Zeke talks about it makes me think it was from old Torna and Tantal restored it. It's in the capital, so maybe it's supposed to be part of some kind of defense system?
What is the Omega Fetter?
Ophion's control core. They need it to make Ophion stop guarding the World Tree.
Why didn't Adam return?
No idea.
Why did everyone outside assume they were all descendants?
They lied about it, and no one was around to claim differently.
Why does Pandoria control a titan?
Seeing as Zeke has her, she's probably passed down through Tantal's royal family like Brighid. Her power is probably along the lines of Haze's, but more specific to Genbu.

Methnerd
Methnerd

I have played 2, it doesn't "confirm" anything. Morytha featuring things similar to our modern society is just shorthand for telling us at that point of the game that there was a society on Alrest far more advanced than what is currenly present on the Titans, without having to introduce and explain alien future tech to the players. It is perfectly reasonable to assume that a non-earth human civilization would also create concrete roads and buildings with street signs and phone numbers.

MPmaster

The only "human" races, are humans/urayans/indolese/gormotti and nopon. Although kluases statement makes it highly likely that blades gave birth to all of the above(and the n some) at some point, which further makes it likely rex can fuck his three blade wives. Not that the game wasnt already trying to go places with that anyways.

Harmless_Venom

Yes. Humans is a semi loose term for pretty much all the major races of alrest. Which they all some more so than others were forced birthed from the Genetic data kluas left with the blades. There werent any halflings in the game to my knowledge but there was that human gormotti couple in the beginning of the game though. And as I sad Despite nia not being gormotti and instead a blade, theres a good chance rex could knock her up, even more so the aegis sisters

2. I was standing inside a small brick shack, looking out either a door or a window. I saw a white-fenced area in the distance, and mythra was standing in the center. I believe she appeared at other points in this dream but I can’t remember the context in which this happened.

What does it mean?

NG+ lets Mythra run around with Rex in Argentum. OK, cool. Wulfric is available from beginning, if attached to Rex/Nia. Alternate Poppi forms not available—Poppi QT because relevant to story even? Well, so is Mythra...? Poppi QT Pi not available because relevant to sidequest, but I have a feeling that I'll probably be able to use other sidequest-activated Blades immediately.

Where's the logic?

I finally caved in and just watched the remaining cutscenes on youtube instead of finishing the game because i dont have the time or nerve to finish this game, but since i loved XC1 i had to find out how it ends.

I must say, i am extremely disappointed in a lot of things.

The world tree being completely mechanical and not a cooler and more magical version of Gaur Plains and Gormoth sucks.

Also, the mechanical areas were always the worst and most boring aspects of all Xenoblade games, but making the final area being yet another "muh narrow corridors of metal walls" segment really makes me glad i didnt play that part myself.

What i also dislike is the whole finale after Morytha. The character motivations are just lackluster, Malos was literally just edgy for the sake of being edgy and Amalthus felt like a washed down version of Egil.

Honestly the only aspects of the game i liked where Klaus, the expanded universe creation flashback and hearing Shulk in realtime, so basically i am a fullblown nostalgia fag that dislikes every other aspect of Xenoblade 2 that hasnt anything to do with the first game.

And now the question is, because nothing else fucking matters: was Meyneth also split in two and will she be the antagonist of Xenoblade 3?

And whats the deal with that third Aegis? I read theories that it was Alvis but he wasnt present in this game because he is in XC1, but that doesnt make any sense since Pyra and Malos are not the same Blades as the other two Monados from XC1. Whats the logic here?

Malos was literally just edgy for the sake of being edgy
Malos didn't really have any purpose given to him by the architect, and was basically lead by the impulse imprinted due to his driver. If anything, Malos is actually interesting, because he is actually looking for his own identity and awkwardly bounded with Jin.
Amalthus and Egil have nearly nothing in common. Egil fought for the machiona, whereas Amalthus was a complete nihilist and megalomaniac. Their motivations are completely the opposite: Egil fought for his race, while Amalthus did that for himself.

And no, Meynth wasn't split. Why do you believe she did?

And how is that even an issue for Alvis? Remember that we don't know when Zanza could create his world, and the usual stuff with dimensional travel is that time doesn't flow the same way and/or dimensional travel drop the travelers in a different time quantinum, so there is no problem if Ontos was warped after the incident and still catch Zanza and become Alvis.

ZeroReborn
ZeroReborn

Well, not necessarily...she does have quite some flaws though.

iluvmen

My issue is that the 3 Monado are not the 3 Aegis.

Alvis can not be Ontos, or else Pyra would have to be Zanzas Monado and Malos Meyneths Monado, which they obviously arent because they cant be in both universes at the same time.

So what the fuck happened to Ontos? Hope they answer this in XC3.

Skullbone

was Meyneth also split in two and will she be the antagonist of Xenoblade 3
People say she's the Infernal Guldo you fight at the base of the World Tree based on the plate Rex picks up, but I personally find that hard to believe since that'd be extremely anticlimactic and also because Klaus shows no reaction when Rex asks about it.

BlogWobbles

I have no idea how you have this idea that they have to be the Monados

Playboyize

I don't even see the problem with the Monado.
Mythra/Pyra basically have a Monado and Malos pretty much have his.

Pyra and Mythra have part of the Monado for Pneuma's core, that's all. The ending pretty much show that Pneuma's Monado is composed of all 3 aegis sword, forming that huge ass sword that is similar to Monado III
People got confused because of the scientist badge, but it is a reused asset. If anything, they botched the old civilization NCP in general

Harmless_Venom
Harmless_Venom

If Klaus can make three aegises I don't see why Zanza and Meyneth couldn't have made their own monados themselves.

Skullbone
Skullbone

XC1 has 3 magical blades
XC2 has 3 magical blades

???
How can Alvis be 3 Monados at the same time? If that would be the case he could just take away the other 2 Monados from Zanza in the final fight and let should rek him.

My understanding is that the Bionis and Mechonis universe has the Zanza Monado, the Meyneth Monado and the Alvis Monado, while the XC2 universe has Ontos, Logos and Pneuma.

So six blades in total.
Or is Alvis supposed to be all 3 Monados, similar to how Pneuma has 3 forms?

I'm not going to go through the trouble of applying spoiler tags amidst all of this so just don't read it if you haven't finished XB2. This warning isn't directed to anyone I've backlinked to, to be clear.

You're all thinking of Monados too literally. Monado is a concept of being closer to true God, who is likely the Conduit we see in 2, or wherever it draws its energy from.
Ontos (definitely Alvis), Pneuma, and Logos respresent the Holy Trinity, thus being closest to God. Pneuma means soul or spirit, so obviously she is the Holy Spirit. Logos means word or law, which is likely alluding to the act of the Gnostic demiurge's of imposing laws on his creations (us, humans) in order to appear as the one true God deserving of worship. He would be The Father. It's important to remember than Xenoblade is drawing from Gnostic beliefs, not Christian ones. That leaves Ontos as The Son, or Christ. In Gnostic belief Jesus was sent by the true God, Monad, as an emanation in order to enlighten and free humans from the demiurge's tyranny. I think this very much lines up with Alvis' role in the first game.
Remember that Monados are not swords, they are basically the concentrated ability to reshape and control reality, as a godlike being. A Monado is to wield the ability of the Monad. This explains why Alvis is "THE Monado" in xb1, if he's a Christ stand-in and thus closest to the Monad.
Also the closest thing I can find for the meaning of Ontos' name is the greek prefix of "onto-", which means existence or being. Not much can really be concluded from this, unfortunately. I guess with a stretch you can say that being the closest to Monad makes him the closest to the root of existence itself, or something.
(1/2)

GoogleCat
GoogleCat

(2/2)
Thus there is no limit to the amount of Monados that can exist, and they are not inherently tied to the three Conduit-powered computers which become Ontos, Logos, and Pneuma. Alvis being a Monado and Christ stand-in means he is not really lending himself as a Monado to other people such as Shulk or Zanza - he is allowing them to create their own Monados by achieving a state of Gnosis/enlightenment. It's not exactly clear whether Meyneth got her Monado due to Alvis' influence, or just through her own ability to obtain it.
Logos obviously has his own Monado, as we see in his fights, which is where his powers of absolute destruction come from; it's derived from the godlike powers of a Monado. Although Pneuma is never identified as a Monado, she is clearly the Monado incarnation of Mythra's powers, after achieving a state of being which is closer to God/Monad.

they had no confidence in it selling at all, so they wanted to make sure audiences knew it was an RPG. chronicles helps with that. otherwise it's like wtf is a xenoblade. in the first place the game was meant to be called Monad, and they made it xenoblade just to make a xeno-games connection that isnt entirely there since it's more of a spiritual remake

if you wait til the attack has hit or is about to hit, the level IV special (or a third-tier elemental combo) will let you completely bypass the damage

askme
askme

Why should I have a level IV special ready?
Because Ophion has some very dangerous moves you basically have to dodge not to have your entire party shotted and level IV specials just so happen to give your entire party invincibility.
Are 5 enough to one shot him?
A full burst at this point of the game should be enough to kill pretty much any boss.
What blades should I be using?
Anything should be fine, just make sure the chosen composition will let you create five orbs.

Aegeon S trust glitch

Skullbone

Blades like Aegeon and Roc who you don't immediately get back in NG+ (you have to progres the story to get them) had a glitch where their stats page showed them at A trust if you had them maxed out at S trust before starting NG+.
Since they were maxed out, there was no way to increase trust with them in NG+ and thus they were stuck at A.

Checking the guide
248 Merc missions total
Count my own
247 completed, none left open
Wait, what's the last one
It's in Mor Ardain
"Materials Stakeout", obtained from the story quest "Lila's Location"
You don't need to actually do it to progress with the story if you have enough Nopon Wisdom
Therefore I never completed the mission and it just removed itself

This kills me inside. I've been going for a 100% run and to have done every single Merc mission but this one feels like a small black spot on an otherwise white wall. I suppose there's always New Game Plus where I can systematically do everything since I did most of the grinding in my first file.

Also need some clarification. That guide says I would have gotten my three pity Blades within my first 10 rares, but I'm dead certain I was table 5 because Agate was my final Blade and took forever to get. My three pity Blades were also only obtained within my final eight rares, with Floren (the last pity Blade in table 5) being my second-last rare.

So which is it? Are pity Blades obtained early or late? My buddy is either table 1 or table 4 looking at the average probability of his six remaining rares. If he's table 1, it would explain why he doesn't have Dahlia yet. He also got all the pity Blades for that table early on, and the average probability of the remaining Blades is a bit lower for table 1 than it is for table 4. On the other hand, he hasn't gotten a new rare Blade in ages until today when he got Nim, the second pity Blade in table 4. He already had Kora (the first), and he doesn't have Finch (the third). This seems to match me more.

Here it is with probabilities.

Table 5 seems the most likely just looking at the low probabilities for the latter half. Agate being such a huge amount of trouble also seems like evidence (I must went through over 200 Legendary Core Crystals and 400 Rare Core Crystals at 999 Luck with Compassion Boosters bringing me to anywhere between level 11 and level 15 Compassion).

You were a column 4 that just had bad luck with Agate. If you were column 5, Floren wouldn't be your second-to-last.

I am column 5. I had trouble with Electra, Zenobia, and Dagas, but was lucky with Agate. But I got Vale, Ursula, and Floren fairly early on because they were gifted.

w8t4u
w8t4u

There is no way that I was in one of the columns where Agate was at her most common. She was a KOS-MOS level drop for me. My last 10 Blades, excluding Gorg, were below 1%, while of my first 10, 8 (out of a possible 9) reached or exceeded 1%. If you just switched Dahlia with Gorg, my last 11 Blades would be the 11 rarest Blades in column 5, but Dahlia was an outlier.

SniperGod

The only possible group I could've been in was 4, and my last blade was Perun. RNG is RNG.

Gigastrength
Gigastrength

There's also "no way" you'd get your 3rd pity blade 2nd to last—after KOS-MOS—unless from blades 1 to 18 you were on an amazing run of getting a Rare blade in under 10 cores per blade (assuming you used a fair amount of Rare and Legendary cores). Keep in mind you add 25 to the pity counter with one Rare core alone (which are not rare, as the name might suggest), and you get pity blades at 100/200/300. So for you to get Vale, Ursula, and Floren in your back end would mean you were so lucky, you probably got all your blades by the time you were in Mor Ardain!

The probability table only adds weight to things. You can roll KOS-MOS on your first blade, or any number of wacky things.

Bidwell
Bidwell

There's no way with all the Legendary Core Crystals with Compassion Boosters I used at 999 Luck that Agate was a 1/20 roll.

There are odds and then there are ODDS. I'd release Vale and use up 10 Legendary Core Crystals to prove it, but I'd rather not lose S+ on her.

Your last blade is always a slog regardless of whether or not it's common for your table. Because you lucked out on KOS-MOS early for example doesn't mean the rest of them will be a breeze.

FastChef
FastChef

If you get "lucky" enough with blade pulls, your pity pulls can be your last blades, since the pity blades only get forced upon you if you go on a long enough streak of opening crystals without getting a rare blade. If the streak is broken thanks to getting lucky, your "progress" to a pity-breaker is reset.

Crazy_Nice
Crazy_Nice

Wasn't the pity Blade rule something like the counter gets reset every time you get a Rare Blade, but the required points to roll that pity Blade increases?

For example, it would have taken me 1300 points to roll Vale after my 12th Blade, 1500 points to roll Ursula after my 14th Blade, and 1900 points to roll Floren after my 18th Blade. If I somehow rolled everything but my last pity Blade, it would take 2000 points to get a guaranteed roll for it.

I rolled Kora on Rex (1), Dahlia through Azami on Nia (2-7), and Perun through Agate on Zeke (8-20). I wasn't really rolling much when I had Morag but not Zeke. But when I started rolling on Zeke, it didn't feel any different from previous rolls. The previous gap was of my own doing. Around the time I got to Dagas and Gorg, it started to slow down. Vale was noticeably slower to get than previous rolls, but I did get Adenine a bit after. Then it halted for a while, which is what's happening to my friend who was around the same point as me (13 or 14 rolled). Then after grinding for a while in chapter 8, I finally got Ursula after a long dry spot, and Zenobia not too long after. There was a bit of a lull but I got extremely lucky with KOS-MOS and got Electra soon after that. Floren took a long time but I got him. I remember feeling like he was a pity Blade considering all the cores I had used to try and get him.

Then came Agate, who I must have wasted a TON of hours on. I was level 62 when I started this Rare Blade grind in chapter 8, and by the time I got her, I was level 91 and had even beaten Kurodil in the long gap. A lot of that was from grinding Vampire Bride Marion and Soul-Eater Stanley with Gold Chips.

There's no way...
Yes there is, you were simply unlucky. A 1/20 chance doesn't mean you are guaranteed to get it in 20 pulls, it means you have a 1/20 chance on each individual pull. Percentage chances are not culmulative.

likme

well, sort of. It does mean that the likelihood of getting it in 20 pulls is pretty good. Everyone's always ready to point out how percentage chances aren't cumulative, but what they ignore is how more rolls = better chances when there's a specific goal.

The main observations I've taken away from NG+ are

Blade chips and trust are as if not more important than trust to your damage output. Leveling down isn't enough for a challenge if you still have your Dialton, Tachyon, and Moon matter chips
The first third of the game really is a slog bogged down with plot elements that went to total waste or should've been left out altogether

The game is also completely all over the place with its logic on which blades it lets you keep and which you're forced to re-earn. I see the reasons for taking Blade Nia and the Master Driver skills away from Rex individually, but taking both away makes him completely not fun to use, especially when you don't get those abilities back until 75% of the way through the game. It should've let you keep one of the two.

I'm actually finding NG+ less enjoyable here than I did in Xenoblade 1 despite this one adding significantly more content. XB1's NG+ at least gave you a chance to mess around with the True Monado as a way of making up for only getting to use it in the final phase of the final fight in your initial run. Meanwhile, the novelty of Pneuma has long since worn of and even her new level 4 special is actually pretty disappointing.

Your only other remote possibility was that you were column 2 and were just fairly lucky up through Vale.

Why can’t Rex equip Poppi?
Because she's not a real Blade, so isn't affected by his Master Driver status.

Pyra, Mythra, and maybe Pneuma will just be part of Rex's moveset, swapping between them like Shulk swapped Monado modes, or how Brawl's Pokemon Trainer worked. There's no way Nia's getting in as a playable character. Maybe an assist trophy.

Can barely understand this game combat mechanic
You've probably noticed that the enemies in Uraya are taking way longer to kill than the ones in Gormott - there's a reason for that. The game wants you to learn how to use blade/driver combos and the chain attack mechanic(you'll be introduced to chain attacks shortly if you haven't been already). I think a lot of people were still pretty confused at this point, but once you figure out the combat it's actually pretty simple. Look up a guide if you need to, pic related is a good one.

Also, the japanese voices are free DLC in the eshop, so if you can't stand the accents you can try that. I like the english dub myself, but it isn't for everyone.

I recently got Gorg on Morag and she is actually pretty fun with axes, especially that art that makes you charge at the enemy and inflict blowdown. Also Gorg's quest and heart to heart were cute, most underrated blade imo.

TurtleCat

sorry, I meant the machina. the machina were all aware of it. the mechons have no minds.
why the hell would he warn anyone? that makes no sense. he needs them to die, and he knows they will never accept that they need to die, and are gonna die anyway.

LuckyDusty
LuckyDusty

It would have changed a lot of the game, and I'm not even suggesting they do that. I just wanted a reason for Egil to have not told the other Machina about the whole reason he was hellbent on genociding half the world, down to the "landmass" itself.

LuckyDusty
LuckyDusty

yess i know he has no good reason to warn anyone. :( it just makes me sad that they couldnt have figured out a solution. Like i said before, it would have defeated the entire purpose of the game so i get it. Even though it didnt show egil explicitly telling the machina about it, it makes sense that they would probably know about everything. i vaguely remember a sidequest of some machina out in mechonis field not knowing why the mechon were acting up, so maybe that could mean they didnt know what egil was up to? or am i remembering it wrong

WebTool

Oooh i know exactly what you mean now!!! Youre right, that would have helped that flaw a lot

TurtleCat

why didn't he just board the mechonis from the start? why didn't he just look for the blade for thousands of years when it was just hidden behind an ice wall in an obvious place? He had the apocrypha generator to keep his power down. Why did say there would be no peace until zanza was gone when zanza was defeated for thousands of years and there was peace until his robot buttbudies attacked bionis? Why didn't he just explain what was going on to the people of bionis earlier?

You can do a sidequest in Torigoth that gives you a rare blade with fortitude.

CouchChiller
CouchChiller

It would mean fewer scenes drawing deliberately drawing attention to their obnoxious tits, a good thing, and Mythra's annoying personality would actually make sense on an adolescent, so also an improvement. However, if Pyra were made into a loli, the game would absolutely change so as to not highlight any sort of romance between her and Rex, which is basically a bad thing because it's still a key element of the story. In short, Pyra should remain the same, but Mythra should be lolified, this would also make it clear that Rex's romance is specifically with Pyra, while giving Mythra a chance to actually stand on her own as a character.

What if there was a Xenoblade 1 remake and they made the gameplay like 2, now the characters have more than 1 weapon type but they are still character specific, Reyn has heavy weapons and Sharla has more gun types, maybe the Monado can shape shift into other weapon types, remember that the monado changes shape for the wielder. Talent arts could get to level 4 too now and you could control when you want the characters to use them.

Pretty sure anyone who can resonate could use her. Blades normally are give form through resonating which is why they are tied to a specific person. It’s kind of like creating your imaginary friend. Flesh eaters don’t have that because they are kept in this world by being part human. Nia uses the weapon herself once Pyra is back and can probably use it just as effectively. As for why, not sure. Real reason is they probably didn’t want to make animations for Morag and Zeke

I feel retarded now. I checked if you can farm it by speaking to the same one over and over again but I only figured out skip travel resets it after trying to get Nopon Wisdom on second blade. First time around I traveled everywhere looking for new nopons. Fuck.

Nude_Bikergirl

He says that, but then later on in Mechonis Core he gloats to Shulk about possibly killing thousands when he stabs the Bionis, which seems like a odd thing to say if he was just neutral towards the people he was killing.

What's the order of events for getting the Merc mission? Does it only give it to you after failing with Nopon Wisdom?

iluvmen

Blades need humans to resonate. Resonating is what give the crystal form. A Blade can’t do that. Flesh eaters can because they are part human and Aegis since they are the master computer

It’s been a while, but I’m pretty sure you get them at the same time, but the merc mission disapears after you pass the check.

There is a scene that plays out before. They talk about having the mercs doing it, then you can either check the barrels or do the mission. As long as you start the mission before checking the barrels, you’re good.

So Chapter 6, and I'm fighting Torna now, and I realized I have no idea how combat works. I understand elemental breaks and Break>Topple>etc., but I don't know how to itemize or what to do. Rex is so squishy and dies fast, and Tora can barely hold aggro. What should I be looking at doing with them?

TreeEater
TreeEater

Make sure Tora has his nopon mask item to draw aggro and make sure all of Rex’s blades have aux cores to decrease aggro.

Evil_kitten
Evil_kitten

Generally, do Blade combos to get orbs on the enemy and then do a chain attack. If Tora is having trouble with aggro, give him items that increase it or give Rex items that lower it.

That fight in particular has a totem that makes Blade combos harder (reduces the timer). Not a bad idea to kill it. The fight gets easier as you down them.

I've been reading older Xenoblade interviews and some of the stuff I find is pretty interesting
Xenoblade Chronicles 3D (gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2015/04/15/interview-inside-the-development-of-xenoblade-chronicles-3ds.aspx)
Mr. Takahashi: New characters for Super Smash Bros. are determined by Sakurai. ...it sounds like Xenoblade Chronicles stuck out to him in particular due to its high quality and popularity. He also had the idea that Monado Arts can be used to change Shulk's nature in battles, allowing him to add new and completely different elements to the character that other fighters don't have. The Shulk bathing-suit skin was also an idea from Mr. Sakurai.

Xenoblade X Iwata Asks
Iwata: ...So in this way, the open-world concept and Skells go hand-in-hand. ... That means balancing this in the game must've been a pretty important factor, wasn't it?
Kojima: Actually, I wasn't that concerned about balancing much at all.
Iwata: (laughs)
(this one explains a lot)

The Shulk bathing-suit skin was also an idea from Mr. Sakurai.
in other words, when he played it, he stripped the armor off to see what would happen

unsurprised about the doll balancing thing. That game was very much an RPG toybox. just here's some shit, go have fun

Why did they have to kill off Vandham when I'm starting to like him, such a bros, kinda make sense why I cannot unlock his blade affinity, also I'm starting to hate this long haired blond women. You guys aren't kidding this game story get better past chapter 3.

also don't count your eggs till they hatch, chapter 4 is the lowpoint of the story. It only really picks up after chapter 3 if you ignore chapter 4

I always felt like Vandham was a bit too badass. Like he needed to go. It doesn’t help that XC2 structure requires a smaller party. And yes, Mythra is kind of an annoying character.

As others have said, Chapter 4 is a bit of a low point. It starts to pick up again in Chapter 5.
