Part 62: Chapter 24x: Dimensional Detour (Battle)Chapter 24x: Dimensional Detour (Battle)
Hey there, and welcome to the last non-main story update of the LP. Were so close to the end, but first, weve got an Alterspire to climb.
: Sire, its teeming with soldiers Who are they? They fly no recognizable banner.
So this is like the Malledus path, huh?
: They are the Keepers whose test I must pass.
: You mean to fight them, then?
: Gotoh says we must prove ourselves. Very well; well seize the tower! Follow me!
: He said Follow him, not charge in!
: Pah. Cant argue with my results, kid! Besides, I had to hurry...
: SOME OF US were still rummaging through the damn Convoy because they left their good bows at home.
So, let me be straight with you, reader, this chapters a pushover. All the enemies are really understatted, and this is just a good opportunity to grab some more Experience before the final battle. So this is going to be a quick fight.
: Their Berserkers buckled against the body of the half-giant, Ymir!
: Their dark wizards could not even harm Etzel, master of magic, and also they got shot.
: Not even the Mage Dragons, fiercest of Dolhrs forces, could stand against Marth, and the Falchion that we definitely did not have, if Gotoh asks.
: They tried to disarm us with specialty weapons, but the ultimate specialty is just getting sliced in half by Barst.
: With a sword faster than light, Athena carved videspread vounds across their .
: You ruined it.
: I guess Horace was there too.
Merric, sadly, doesnt have the speed to double here. That can be a deal breaker with mages.
The Killer Bow here is actually a little scary at first glance, but even if this guy crits, it wont be substantial.
: Though we had no Thief to open the doors, youd be surprised how good Norne is at shooting through a keyhole.
The enemies near the throne charge when you get close, but its sorta too little, too late.
: And so, we proved ourselves masters of the alternate dimension.
Thats an empty screen, Malledus.
: There are no others. And look: these markings around it are the same pattern we saw in the Fane of Raman
: Hmm, youre right
: We found a dragon girl in the fane...I wonder if these symbols- Huh?!
: Sire! The coffin Its opening!
: What? No! It must be some kind of trap, or or some kind of er
Theres a transition effect on the bottom screen here. Again, sorry, hard to capture in screenshots.
: My name is Marth, prince of Altea. And you, my lady?
: Me?! My name is Nagi.
: Wait! I know her! Oh...oh no...is this...a real story?
: Well, of course.
: Im going to need to lie down once this is all over...
: Nagi I was sent here to find you, by a man named Gotoh.
: Gotoh I know that name But from where? I cannot recall.
: Youve lost your memory?
: I cannot say for certain. But your voice I heard you calling. Did you rouse me from my sleep?
: Your soul called out to me begging for my help. For this blade
: That thats Falchion! How did you get it?!
: I cannot remember But you need it, I know that. And you need my powers.
: Your powers, my lady?
: Take me with you. I must finish what I started I think. I must fight with you.
Well...thats handy. Im kinda sad its not called the Parallel Falchion, but that would require quite a bit of foresight into Games That Werent Out Yet.
So, theres something to note about Nagis Falchion. This is the original I got from Gharnef.
Nagis is actually way worse, with five less might, less hit, and more weight! I guess it makes sense for an extradimensional knockoff Legendary Blade.
You dont get Nagi until the start of the next map, but I started it to get her stat block. Nagis pretty similar to Tiki. In fact, these are around Tikis average stats at this level, aside from Tiki having way better Luck. Nagi also takes way less investment, but she is a bit of a crutch unit to help you against the many dragons well be facing off with in the final map.
Now then, heres a final roundup of the stat screens for my Normal Mode team, just for completions sake.
Marth actually hit his Resistance Growth twice, which is kind of a nice little miracle. Otherwise he was just standard Marth. Pretty decent, but not really good at anything until he gets his hands on Falchion.
This Strength-blessed Frey pretty much had the team on his back. I love those numbers.
Its our hero, Sir Jagen! With copious amounts of stat-injections, he became a respectable Bishop.
Norne was pretty good for sudden bursts of damage. I still cant say Im super impressed with her, but she turned out alright enough.
This is more what Caeda is SUPPOSED to look like, not her super buff self from the Hard run. Shes not quite as much of an all purpose tool without the strength and defense blessings, but she was still an asset to the team.
This Barst is apparently a little below average. I didnt notice, because hes still Barst.
I was focusing on Jagen so much that Merric ended up pretty underleveled. Whoops. Hes still okay.
Sedgar serves as a fantastic block of HP and solid damage. Seriously, Sedgar and Wolf are super good if you reclass them. Special note goes to having General level defense with 23 speed.
Athena > Navarre.
Horace is a pretty good block. Thats about all he does well, but he does it!
I really, really wish Etzel was faster. Unfortunately, without doubles, hes just outclassed by a lot of other casters.
Ymirs doing better than I thought he would.
Next time, the conclusion! Its Endgame time. See you there.
All our Normal mode run pals are here for a group shot! Sorry Ymirs so blurry, Im not great at sizing these. Whoops.
Can we get a gotoh masterpiece masterpost, please
There's also Camel Pimp's rainbow Gotoh, who's in the OP.
