Yeah, Melia can get stupid broken but needs to be in the 1 slot (kinda like Shulk but even more definitively so). Her AoE damage can work with the same multipliers (Chain Attacks, back attacks) that physical attacks do, which opens up some crazy plays.

Ah, I haven't tried leading as Melia. I'll do that and see how she goes, thanks. I'll have to mix and match everyone (maybe even take Shulk out for a bit) to see who synergises well with each other.

Are you British yourself? How do you forget about the accents lol
Yes I am British lol, you don't normally get British accents that are this varied in Japanese (or even American) media like this so it's pretty impressive! I'm guessing Reyn might sound a bit comical to some but he's very accurate lol, my own accent is closer to his than anyone else's in the cast.

Also, if you're a fan of Doctor Who you might like to know she's Clara.
Wow I hadn't picked up on that! That is cool, I guess this game did come out before she got big so it makes sense she was slumming it in VA. I like Jenna Coleman, that might actually help endear her character to me.

Sorry, "AoE" in my last post should be "Damage Over Time".

I doubt you have access to most of Melia's most damaging spells right now, but you should have Bolt and Flare. The general play with her is to summon Bolt (which increases your Ether damage) first, which will strengthen the rest of your summoned elements - be it Flare or some other ones later on - thereafter.

I love Melia as a character, but I've never been good at controlling characters like her so I never got the hang of her when I gave her a try.

XB2's pretty neat with its voice acting since each region has its own UK dialect and then the Blades are typically American

Also playing Bravely Default 2 right now which is a full of different accents from the UK as well and oh god all this slang I can't imagine being real namely all the things Elvis the Scot says but I love it
I request affiliated many pipes.

Oh that's a cool way to do it, but I don't know if I'll get Xeno 2 or not still. Probably won't decide til after I beat this. I'm loving Xeno 1 a lot but everything I've heard/seen of 2 makes it seem so much more... anime, in all the ways I don't like.

Lol well I don't sound exactly like him, just closer to him than the others. IDK if the VA is using his own accent or not but it's impressive if he's faking, he manages to not come across as a caricature like people normally do (Again I know to Americans it might sound cartoonish anyway >_>). Like the frequency of the slang is probably a bit exaggerated but not the content or cadence.

To her credit she actually returned to record new lines for the Switch release!
Okay, I rolled a 14. What's that mean? Hsu

XB2 has a lot of "anime" and definitely plays up the goofiness at times but honestly it's a lot more of an epic adventure than people acknowledge and I really love the way it connects the 2 main games as an overall series. Also I mentioned before but the OST surprisingly can even best XB1 which really goes a long way while exploring its world on thetitans... barring Temperantia, screw that place but at least it's short. Really good gang of villains too, arguably better than XB1 in that regard without saying too much. I'm not a fan of Pyra and yeah Rex is no Shulk, but the rest of the playable cast is pretty great (particularly Nia).

It does leave some plots kinda hanging though, I thought Torna would touch on some but yeah not even then (although Torna is also very much worth its price and without being too demanding on playtime - Torna best map with best sightseeing spot of the series)
