I just wanted to see how many people have completed the game solo.  It is a fun and interesting experience (certainly different from the regular method).
Also, any tips or hints about playing solo are welcome.

I agree, Vengence to heal, play conservative, use either yellow or red orb, and grind like crazy
the tactics are different, but once you get used to it, its not as hard as it sounds. the big concept is that if you only fight a few enemies at a time, its barely harder than having a team

Yeah, one of the disadvantages is that battles take so long.  The red orb definitely helps speed things up, especially in training.  (Although, if you spend all the money on the Main, it won't take long till s/he is ridiculously powerful.)


thats basically how you get through a solo brutal playthrough

Too much gold farming and over training make the game boring and you need to do that alot to "go solo"


Not so.  If you "need" to do that for solo, then it's not over training.  As for gold farming, after you beat the game on brutal, you get 28,000 gold, certainly enough to get you started.  (Assuming you only train yourself)


On the old forums someone said that it's possible to start a new game from scratch and win it without grinding (meaning, fighting only the mandatory battles and no gambling). However, I'm not sure if it was on brutal or not.
Nevertheless, it seems quite a challenge.

You can deplete your Personality when you start a new game if you're going solo beacuse you won't be commanding others. You won't be needing to persuade others too.

Edit: I can't get through the first battle in solo! Help! Stats:

Power: 12
Defense: 12
Apitude: 11

Edit: Alright prob solved. Now I know that the hardest part is before Hellion is willing to train you.

Edit: Actually, if someone can post a solo walkthrough on wikia, it'll be fantastic.
I doesn't care, do I?


Combine your triple post. Also, a solo walkthrough seems redundant, given that the information we have here is sufficiant when coupled with the other helps threads.

Ok. Can you combine posts together after it's posted?

Yes. You copy the post, then modify it into your first post and them repeat with your third.

Think this is enough for a solo on brutal?


Welcome to the forum, speedygeek, follow the rules and enjoy your stay, but, may I ask, how much time did you spend grinding to get those stats?


I'd play through the game at hardest difficulty possible for my team once or twice a week every weekend, so I have no idea how long it took.

Think it's a bit of an overkill? I have 41 for everyone's att, def, (and pow) for the team members I use too.
