Yes, Helena's Whirlwind attack makes her very useful in tight quarters, but her problem is mobility and that she doesn't have long range attacks like the Main.

obviously, the main is the best teammate  ???
But, my question was about her versus Flint/Niven

Flint has greater strength, but even worse mobility, and Niven has slightly greater mobility, but his aren't the strongest attacks in the game. I guess this means that no character is better than the other, they are all balanced in some ways, probably to get you to experiment more party combos and not discuss which character is better than which.

Thanks! Er, do you know when Dorgon gets Burst Shot?
Also, why do so many people like him? His attacks seem awfully weak and situational for me. I've only ever hit two people in the time I've had him - never managed to line up three in a row.
I have written down 12 Power and 20 Power but no attack names besides my notes, so I assume that Burst Shot is attained at 20 Power. Can anyone confirm this?

Well if you have the psy power to spare, Flint really has the best mobility, I normally get him to about 6 moves in a normal fight and I once got him to 20 moves when I was messing around. And if you give Niven enough strength it works out well as strength X 2= damage dealt, I don't think any of the others have that high leveling up.

Nah, that wasn't sarcasm. Dorgon's attack is genuinely useful for hitting far-away enemies and for keeping the front lines clear (there's no point in having 8 teammates if only 4 are actually attacking).

Personally, I used Dorgon to sort of harass the enemy from across the screen. They really couldn't do anything about it.

I am an over leveler, so Dorgons laser blast deals 30 damage now :)

Why does everyone choose Guy over Gamblin' Jack?  I pick Guy over Jack because my team focuses on mobility.
Okay, so both of them have the same speed, but Guy has attacks that allow him to attack 1-3 spaces away (and diagonally, too, I might add.)  I find Pyro Hail very useful.  I can have Guy and Shadowboxer use their area attacks on different groups, and my other teammates finish the enemies off.

My Team is this (in no particular order):

Shadowboxer
Darkling
Festus
Dorgon
Niven
Guy
Grotius
Main (obviously)

the reason people pick jack over guy is because gamblin jack can heal people and he has som powerful move and guy's pyro blast barely even does anything

Guy has the option of using a powerful area attack or powerful single hitter.  Jack is limited to attacking one person at a time.

That is because you don't train Guy's Psy Power very high.

Is your Shift buttons broken, because KZ has been emphasizing for a long time that we use proper grammer in these forums?  Sentences start with capital letters.

Guy can get just as strong as Shadowboxer.  I had no trouble keeping them doing the same damage.  Guy is less maneuverable, but he's better than Jack.
