Read the manual after a couple hours, seriously. The game will make a lot more sense. It doesn't explain some pretty basic stuff.

If you've got a decent AOE weapon on your skell just go farm Joker. He's got like 50-60 dudes around him which are easy to kill. If you don't want to do that then wai until night time, go to West NLA gate, and there should be 3-4 level 60 things, and they go down fast with a few g busters.

as a gameplay item it works to delay the player so they learn how to control the mech on foot and limit access to some parts of the world as progression it works well for me

I know about her parents. there are lines like "we dreamed of a Skell that can fly through the air, now it's finally here" suggesting that it's something new rather than an improvement, which is why I thought it didn't make much sense.

anyway yes, it works well gameplay-wise.

most people would do Joker

I did the mech base in Oblivia south of FN 305
they spawn at level 58-60 and easy to kill with 2 hits
just kill them one at a time try not to take a whole mob of probes while doing that
and avoid the level 68 tyrant near the area

trying to do joker method w/o proper preparation (insectoid augments) is waste of time

Yeah I think maybe story and gameplay conflict here

maybe this was always going to be Lin's contribution but they decided to hold the mechs later and the flight pack another step late too so it kind broke the flow of the story making less sense

what people did not say is they use lots of INSECTOID XX augments to face that dude
I killed him once but it was luck of the RNG with cockpit triggering at the right time

now I think at my level I could kill all of them with one hit

Am I missing something or should I just try again later when I leveled up?

Just explore more/level up or buy a new Skell ( if you are using the free one) i was lv 44 and that boss was kinda easy

Question about affinity quests. But like for example this one (minor side-quest character spoiler maybe), do I need to have 3 hearts affinity with both characters (phog & frye) in order to activate this one?

tfw when you've got an enemy weak to Beam and your Skell is decked out with equipment to capitalize. Then Overdrive and Cockpit Mode work together. Drones forever. Gonna be scary to see how high it goes with actual augments to boost damage.

If I'd known how easy it was to grind damn near everything post game I could have saved myself so much grief. Got my last blade level and 3 squad members to 3 affinity hearts in a half hour. Got a bunch of BP and maxed out most of my regularly used arts and skills in 20. It's amazing

With how much of a non-factor the story is, post game is like a better version of the game

You get a special mission once you've finished the game that gives some affinity, but even with that one it's still quite a grind.

I used to worry about heart-to-hearts, but they're so short and inconsequential that they're honestly not worth the time of swapping out squad members or specifically advancing time. Simply not worth the effort.

Also great decision to make squad members ready for a heart to heart not appear in their usual spot while the heart of heart wasn't marked on any hexagon, making them even more of a pain to track down than usual.

Sometimes it's like the game's systems were specifically designed to be frustrating instead of fun. Baffling.

Just to make sure, these enemy type augments only affect the arts of the weapons they're installed on, right?

So makes no sense to put stuff like that on shields/beam shields?

Makes everything so much more complicated with the preparation in the menu. ;_;

I have not seen evidence that is the way it works if it takes them for shield and armor it will work

I wish someone did a spreadsheet of how they stack and how many is max effectiveness

yeah I do not know if the effect is limited to only the slot you put them in I do know it works just not how

what I do see if I slot allows you to put that augment in I use it
it gives you a list of only the ones you can use for that weapon or armor part and the effects should stack

Augments work for all of your damage, not just the weapon equipped to it.
Goes the same for element reflect null augments, element boost augments, cooldown augments, etc.

What I don't know is the rate that they stack, but I got 2 Megafauna XX on my Ares 90 and did 1m damage per shot of the IWin button. I also have 2 cooldown augments, and I'm gonna get 2 more today to see how much quicker my stuff cools down.

Murderess is just so hard to gain affinity. I already have maxed out Elma and Lin before Chapter 5, Doug and Irina before Chapter 7, Gwin and Hope Chapter 8, and just about everybody at 4 hearts before Chapter 11 including Celica but Murderess remains below 3 hearts, and she's already over the level of my main crew. Jeez if only I could give her cash to max out her affinity in an instant lol.

Something strange happend to me after playing the game for a while now. I installed the data packs and everything was fine but for a few days now it seems that the textures need a lot longer to load and the pop ups are much worse. :/ Somebody who noticed something similar? Should I delete the data packs and install them again?

Btw I installed the data packs on the Wii U itself and not my external hard drive.
