i always use additions as my attacks unless i get a super high magic attack i use the high level additions and have no real issues hitting them

but i dont think im using the games full systems to there max like i didnt know what speed ups or downs were and how to stratiegise around them i felt its just best to attack and always have 1 person to heal like meru

my normal party is dart albert meru and sometimes hashel instead of albert bu hashels additions r a bit harder and awkward i dont like rose anymore i find her to be to weak

shana to me isnt strong enough and shes only good at magic and u dont get very many strong magic attacks in the game i just dont see why i should use her instead of meru. am i looking at this wrong?

I always try to use different party combos when i run through. Meru/Haschel are classic, but I really like Shana/Kongol as well. Never done a Kongol/Albert though.

Yeah my first playthough was with Albert and Kongol. This was before I discovered Gamefaqs so I had no one to give me advice and, to my 10 year old brain, attack strength was all that mattered; I hadn't learned to appreciate the power of speed yet.

Since then I've probably played through the game 7 or 8 more times and now I'm much more partial to Haschel and Meru, but I do still like Albert as well. Meru has the unfortunate drawback that you can't start developing her until the second disc, and you won't get her crazy strong addition until much later in the game, so I'm not against going with Albert instead of her.

I've never had the patience to use Miranda though. The game is easy enough that item healing is sufficient, so I've never been able to justify using her.

Lavits/Albert are freaking solid for a first time play through (and additional ones). Rose storm is very good for new players and Lavbert can get his final addition midway in disc one! Which makes him crazy strong early game.

I like rotating characters when I play.
I remember finishing the game the first time with Miranda and Rose in my party. Meru and Rose are my favourite party members to beat the game with now but I still use everyone a bit on my journey through the game.

Yeah I didn't know I could use other additions So I Doubled Slashed everything. Had pretty poor equipment, but I did get new weapons.

These days I generally just replay the game with a combination of Meru Shana Haschel. I've played it with every party combination outside of Kongol who I really don't like in gameplay or in the story.

Might replay with the "OG" team of Dart Shana Albert soon.

My party tends to be Dart/Albert/Rose, Dart/Haschel/Rose, or Dart/Albert/Haschel.

I rely heavily on additions throughout most of the game, mainly to build them up and attempt to learn the final additions without too much additional grinding by the end. Mainly only use Dragoons for certain bosses, same with attack items.
