Chances are you'll have to do a lot more grinding that way, given the jump in levels necessary for the second chapters.

Its up to you, play in whatever way seems most fun!

After beating the game i'm planning to do a solo run to see how far i can get with only 1 character, hopefully it's possible.

The shortest route was a detour. It was a detour that was our shortest path.

Don't forget about how the job system works. You need to unlock a specific character to get that job available for the others.

do you need all of them or just on of each type?

Actually I think I heard wrong. Ignore what I said. https://www.reddit.com/r/octopathtraveler/comments/8wv5zu/spoilers_sub_job_locations/e1ympom/

Game seems designed so that youve got to use all 8 characters.

Would have massively extended replayability if you could only use one, or more, but not all of the starting chars per game.

With that being said, im only playing through once.

If you play the game once with all 8 characters or 8 times with 1 character, it would all balance out anyway. I wouldn't even call playing a game with a different character and story from the beginning a "replay", more continuing to play.
