Spoiler: Zestiria - Made my way to Pendragon. Had a fight with Sergei yesterday and dude gave me more trouble than I thought. Damn you, when I hit you, stay staggered. Don't keep throwing attacks at me. XD Well, hidden artes managed to do the job eventually. - Got to the part when Dezel chased after Rose. At this point, I can't go back inside the inn or outside the city. And there were no other save points, so I had to resort to using quick save instead. This was quite a strange oversight. Not a big deal, but still annoying. - By the way, technically the people in the inn can't see seraphims. So Rose and Sorey ordered food for 6 people in total. Did no one find it weird that the food in the other 4 bowls suddenly disappear even though there were only 2 people eating? Surely they have waitstaff checking on their guests. And when Rose left, Sorey was all by himself talking to the seraphims. I am surprised no one came to ask if he was mentally insane. - Edna is quickly becoming another one of my favorite characters in Tales. Well, I think Zestiria is popular, but for the wrong reasons. But then again, I've only heard of its infamous reputation mostly because of the controversy around the story mode and Alisha. I am only at level 20 or so, so at this point, I can't really comment on anything yet. As for the equipments, I found that quite often, the new stuff available in the shop have lower stats than the ones that I fused. Either they are straight up inferior, or have a mix of lower and higher stats for different paradigms. Having to check every single one does feel a bit tiring, though. XD Xillia has the best battle system in the franchise even up until this point, I think. Of course, others might find disagree. It also helped that the enemy AI in that game was kinda... dumb, so you probably had an easier time plowing through the story. And if you played as Jude, welp, dude was like a gender bender fusion of Sophie and Cheria on crack. It was my first Tales game, and I can already tell that he was the most OP characters in any game I've played so far. Who is this new character? Mary? I don't think they changed the story or anything...? I think Erin's voice fits Nowaru-chan Chie's explosive personality more than the old one.
