Is the hero character stronger than the others?
« on: February 05, 2012, 06:58:16 PM »

Just curious, does the hero character have any advantage over hired units of the same class?

Well the hero can use orbs allowing it to fly, regenerate health automatically, gain physical resistance. In other words, the hero does have a potential advantage over hired help.

I see. I'll check the wiki to see what the orbs are. Thanks for the help!

Warriors DO have psi using attacks, right? It's not a wasted opportunity to use a swordfighter as my player character?

Not completely. It's just usually considered smart gameplay to pick a psy because they tend to benefit more from psy based orbs. Of course choosing other classes can present different challenges, as they'd require different battle strategies.

How many orbs can you use at once? I heard it's 2 in TRPG 2, is there a limit in this one?

I don't quite remember. I believe it may be similar to SoG and TPA1, but I may be wrong.
