as a minor aside and because i'm too lazy to make another thread:
Were any of the en guides on gamefaqs for this game any good, or should I just not bother and freeball it when it is time?
Also who was the best MC in terms of scope of available quests? I remember finishing the game as Katarina or Thomas years ago.
So many things to say, mmh I’ll have to contain myself.
The most important tips I can give you is this one:At creation time
you must choose a job and a favorite weapon for your main character, this will have an incidence on you Stats and your Learning Type (which is a deciding factor in what Tech you can unlock). Thing is: if you tweak your default Stats then your Learning Type will change. Surprisingly the new Learning Type will not change from the default unless you save and reload the game!!! REAL SAVE!! (not save state!).
As far as gamefaqs goes, the Romancing SaGa 3 Info Bonanza written by DShort is one of the better guides, I even dare to say this is an essential read if you really want to grasp the RS3 gameplay mechanics: Romancing SaGa 3 Info Bonanza (gamefaqs)
Sadly the best guides on RS3 were never posted on gamefaqs, over the years -since I've played this game to death and still do
- I've collected some incredible guides which (sadly) have vanished from the bowels of the Internet:
- Polygon's Romancing SaGa 3 Character Guide
: this guides gives a rundown of every character in the game and their Learning Type, excellent guide (although unfinished). It was published on home.comcast.net, but the guide isn't available anymore,
- Romancing Saga 3 Learning Types Excel Sheet
: this charts was designed by Destruction Angel
and translated by Zach Keene
(who were regular contributors on the RS3 gamefaqs boards back in the day), their work is based on a japanese guide written by a certain Shingo Endo
. This table shows the learning types of every character in the game, it is an essential supplement to the Polygon's guide mentioned above,
- Romancing Saga 3 Guide by Snow Wanderer
, also entitled Ultra Comprehensive Super Uber Gigantic - Or Not So Much - Concealed Mega Romancing SaGa 3 FAQ
: this scary guide is humongus, impossible to find on the Net these days (I grabbed it years ago and never could trace back the source), this is great stuff,
Even if you browse all these guides for help, this is just the tip of the iceberg: because there is A LOT more to say about Romancing Saga 3's gameplay mechanics, quirks and secrets. Maybe one of these days I'll make a ressource thread or something. Until then I've uploaded these rare 3 guides for you and the Community, enjoy:Romancing Saga 3 Top FAQS
