Are you still able to get deathbringers from the mimic pot thingy in Barheim? Those were always my weapon of choice in the original.

Yeah your second job will really boost your HP and Battle/Magick Lore.

And yeah I think the Deathbringer is in the same place, although it might be a little later before you can get back in? Or it might just be that you can't teleport directly there anymore.

I went and got a Deathbringer from Ithuno as early as possible in Barheim yeah, equipped on my knight (Basch obvs).

Also guaranteed Seitengrat, go and break your games everyone:

why even bother

like

izjs made characters so much stronger by limiting the scope of what they can do (which makes no sense, I know) that things like seitengrat are entirely unnecessary

it's like fusing the ng+ persona in p5 - you can do it, but you're so utterly overpowered that you'll never actually need it for any fight in the game (unless you're playing on the highest difficulty and are trying to like, solo the final or secret bosses)

Got as far as getting the sunstone. Next is sneaking into the castle and then DUNDUNDUN meeting Fran and Balthier.

Playing it again after 10 years since its release, FF: XII was really ahead of its time in a lot of ways. It's not a perfect game, but it holds up so well (aided by the stellar visual and audio remastering). So much of it is still fun, and it's weird how it feels so much more full than even XV. I hope Square Enix takes a hint from its renewed success.

It's like, somewhere in a parallel universe, FF as a series went down and pursued the path of XII's design philosophy, and is enjoying a new golden age.

^ I saw an article somewhere (that I can't find) saying "If you enjoyed FFXII's combat then give Dragon Age Inquistion a chance." Doesn't DA:I bascially have a gambit system?

So I got to this bit:

(SPOILER)

I hated this bit of the game the first time 'round.

In TZA you only need 3 chops though.

Cheating.

(Also the game explains pretty thoroughly what a chop is.)

Edit: I'd say DA: O had more of a Gambit system than DA:I.

I think I remember reading that the creators of Dragon Age: Origins combat were directly inspired from the Gambit system.

No it's how the high society of Archades flaunt their social status. Doing people favors is rewarded with a chop and the more chops you have the bigger bragging rights you have as a good upstanding member of the society/ elite.

^ Hence the expression "busting your chops" when you're demoted from nobility

Hello everyone, by the way, long time no see!
Enjoying FFXII on my bits of spare time - currently at the Garif's village past the Ozmone Plains. As many others mentioned, FF XII was so ahead of its time, it has aged pretty well. Thumbs up for the re-orchestration and the high-res textures. Good to be wandering Ivalice again.

No, that's what a chop does.

I'm talking about, literally, what (physically) is a chop? All the game tells us is that they are made of wood.
