Here it is. The best Final Fantasy played with a crazy ruleset for no reason.

PM me if you want in from now on. The thread is moving at a rate that I can't see anything at a reliable timing.

If there is one thing I ask, if you have nothing to say about this other than "I just played the game so no!" or "FFV sucks" or whatever, please just don't bother.

Final Fantasy V Four Class Challenge
You will be given one class from each crystal set and can use only that class until you receive a new one. One lucky player per group of five will receive the White Mage, which is arguably[!] the most useful class for most of the game, so they will not receive a final class from the Earth crystal. Sucks to be you. You also will get the Thief, so lucky you gets two classes from the start.

The "packs" will be completely randomized and I will hand them out. They will be posted and spoiler tagged. I'd ask you only check when you get the crystal, but I can't stop you. I'd imagine it'd be more fun not knowing, though.

Basically:
You can only use the four classes assigned to you. During each phase up until getting the last class, you can have two (or more) characters as the same class. So basically, when you get your last class, each character must be a different class.

Example: Your classes are Monk, Time Mage, Bard, Chemist.
You unlock Monk. Everyone must be Monk.
You unlock Time Mage. You must have one Monk and one Time Mage. The either two can be either Monk or Time Mage.
You unlock Bard. You must have one Monk, one Time Mage and one Bard. The last character can be either Monk, Time Mage or Bard.
You unlock Chemist. You need one Monk, one Time Mage, one Bard, and one Chemist.
But, each character doesn't have to stick to that class. Butz can be the Time Mage and Kurururururururu the Bard and you can swap Butz to the Bard and Kurururururururu to the Time Mage.

Questions I thought you might ask:
Can I use Bare? No.
Can I use Mime? No. You can unlock it if you want to go through the dungeon, though.
Can I use a class multiple times? Only until you get all four classes. Really, I don't care what the hell you do with those four classes, but when you take a picture of you beating the final boss, I'd like to see all four classes on the screen.
Can I make every character master every one of my four classes? Yes. And that means you can use sub-skills.
Can I get fucked over? Hell yes. If the randomizer picks for you Monk, Berserker, Beast Master, Dancer I can see you having an interesting time. But that is what this is about. A challenge. And a bit of craziness, which is always fun.
What is the randomizer? I assigned each class a number from 1 to 5 and a suit. Then I shuffled some cards and laid them out. Science! I already did it a few times and the results have been nothing short of hilarious so far.
And the bonus FF5a classes? No. Unless you want to play Bare until you unlock them and use only them! Then feel free to do that.
Can I play before the official start time? I'd prefer not but I guess you can play up to unlocking the Wind Crystal and saving before you equip any jobs.
What version of FFV is acceptable? Any.

If you posted in Himuro's thread either post here again or contact me to confirm. I will be PMing a lot of you, though.

The first tier classes are so dull. In the long run, the mages are the most useful, but I'm guessing people will have a lot of difficulties in the water tower unless they are seeded Knight or Monk. I've always hated that fucking Mammoth.

Anyone who has never played the game to completion is banned. Sorry!
I haven't a clue if ever I actually beat it or not, I'll have to see if I got far enough on GBA to pretend I did. This sounds entertaining - and helpful cause I can never make a firm decision on jobs.

The first classes may be dull, but I can't really think of any reason why they aren't all useful in some way in the long run (though having four knights at the beginning is going be expensive...:lol ).

Sign me up.

Can we do an FF VI challenge next!? :D
I'd be up for an FFVI challenge next. My idea would be to do a no-Esper run, combined with only Celes, Edgar, and Setzer for the World of Ruin. I've done the latter but never the former, and most definitely not combined! Luckily, Celes learns magic naturally, so it shouldn't be completely irritating.

I'd think something like 'one esper per character only - can never be switched' would be more interesting. I mean, a 'no job' FF5 challenge wouldn't necessarily be very exciting.

Right, it wouldn't be exciting in FF5. Remember, characters in FF6 already have jobs, so they already have "that one thing that differentiates them."

Or, if we wanted to do it in the same vein as this competition, just assign each Esper a number and dish them out in packs, akin to the way RK's handing out jobs.

It's hard trying to pick which of the first jobs is the worst.

Knight might be because of the hideous early equipment costs. Monks and Mages are great early.

Blue Mage would suck early but get better pretty quickly.

You forgot to add me to the list :mad:
Didn't I PM you guys? You've been added, though.

Lot more people than I thought. I expect most of you to not play much at all! Prove me wrong.

No Esper is actually my favorite way to play FF6. It's really different but not stupid.

Its a good thing white mage gets paired with theif because white mage solo would be torturous until the 2nd class. Literally no damage.

and then what if you end up getting Berserker as your 2nd class. LOL, prepare for some extremely long battles. Good luck killing that sandworm.

and then imagine getting Bard as the 3rd class and dancer as the 4th class.

I was thinking that myself.

Getting through this is going to be murder with how some of the Jobs work. :lol

Haha, this is awesome (like the game!)! Not sure where my copy of the game is though, and I probably don't have the time to sign up for this anyway. :/
I'll be following the thread at least, will be interesting. :)

It's been awhile since I last played FF V, so sure, why not, count me in.

I'll try and finish no matter what, but some of the possible builds could get cock blocked something fierce by some of the tougher bosses.

Oh most definitely. That's kinda the point though. To see if you can prevail despite all the odds.
Looks like I'm gonna have to make some more packs!
