<B>Alright i m in the slums of dorter and i m having a Bitching time on beating this battle could someone help me like what classes should i use?<B/>

01-04-2002, 09:45 AM
first of all, level up a bit. try to reach lv 10 or something

this fight aint that hard.
i recommend to have a strong wizard, and use monks since they are pretty fast when it comes to turns.
learn 2nd level spells for the wizard, and learn Wave Fist or Earth Slash for the monks.
dont bother equipping Algus, since he wont do anything, and if you have enough jp, make Delita learn Throw Stone.

or if you developed your job tree, try to get Geomancer's Attack Up.

one more thing tho: for wizard, try to learn Magic Atk Up. I whipped the knight and wizard with just fire (it almost did 90 dmg) ;x

<B>Alright man i new i had to do something i have a wizard a hemist a thief an a knigh is that alright?<B/>

01-04-2002, 03:12 PM
woa already a thief?
thieves are the hella fast, so its alright, as long as it can deal pretty fair dmg
the knights... they'll be ok
and yes your party is alright

<B>Alright man thanx and i might get a timee mage and level him up because u need a level 2 time mage for a summoner^_^<B/>

reach level 10 for the dorter fight? geez, I was at level 6 and 7 for most of my people when I finished the first chapter

01-05-2002, 12:35 PM
eh... but you were doing quick game
and i bet it took you some time to beat miluda, wiegraf, and algus

01-05-2002, 03:41 PM
alright it is settled i m going to level upO_O

01-05-2002, 09:40 PM
It took me three tries for algus, two tries for wiegraf, and one for miluda. But thats what makes this game so much more fun, that it actually has a good amount of chalenging battles, if you level up to 10 at the dorter trade city fight then you take away half the fun

I have tip for you, if you level up enough before any battle, the enimies levels will always be the same, like in Dorter, they will always be 4-6. So get to level ten and annhilliate them.

Also, be prepared for the battle at the Golgorand execution site in Chapter 2...lets just say its like going through World War II.

01-09-2002, 05:35 PM
<B>alright then i think i know what to do now lol O_o i will level up to like 10 then kick there asses!<B/>

Watch having very high levels in late chapters. A Vampire (the strongest of the three panthers) can kill even my strongest warriors (except one guy, and it's not Ramza) in two hits. In all random battles, enemy levels are equal to yours. You should have seen my fight against 6 red chocobos and 1 yellow one once, not pretty. I could have won, but at the loss of special character. As long as your strategy is good, you can take on very powerful enemies, ah, most of the time.

I like leveling up to 99 on the mandalia plains battle, after I get Algus. I know its a bit extreme, but its fun to squish the story battles. i dont mean run through them. I mean steal all their equipment, lower all their stats. Raise brave/faith of my party if needed, find all the secret stuff, turn them into chickens or frogs, then step on them like the inferior maggots they are.

As you can tell, I lost ALOT of battles my first time through. I swore to whatever god that would lend me an ear that I would never lose again. And I never have.

A problem with leveling up so far is the fact that when you are fighting normal non-storyline battles, and you weapons are not top notch, you can get easily destroyed by monsters or humans that are your same level but with superior weapons, I once did what you are saying, and I found my self in dire trouble just beating battles on the mandalia planes, so in short feel free to level up toe 20 or 30 (that's what I did), but I'd just like to warn you about going too high.

01-15-2002, 11:50 PM
wheres the fun if you level up to 99?

01-16-2002, 02:18 AM
level 20 to 30 is still too much for dorter trade city, heck, level ten is too much for dorter

01-17-2002, 06:13 PM
I totally agree, even though it is kinda fun to level up really high, it totally ruins the game. The challenge is totally non existant. I say about 12 to 15 is a reasonably good level, it might take the fun out of dorter, but the other battles will still be challenging for the most part

01-17-2002, 08:18 PM
how is 15 gonna put a challenge in the first chapter? I remember being at level 7 and 8 when I beat the first chapter

01-18-2002, 09:21 AM
I didn't care much or notice Algus ir Delita at the Dorter battle. I really hate those two, cowards and the such that run like hell most the time.

My party consisted of a Knight, level two, a level one Time Mage w/ Bolt2, a level one black mage, and of course Ramza.

I kicked ass, only lost my time mage cause they were all gangin' up on my magic users, and what for, just cause I was whippin' their ass with spells alone. Ain't my fault they stay in tight groups.

[Only registered and activated users can see links]

I learned my lesson though this time, leveled up and kickin' ass.

Level 10 is definatly a bit much.

And Garret, you kick ass however ya want man :D:D:D

01-18-2002, 07:21 PM
I know its a bit much, but you will have SOME top notch weapons. Occasionally a human will fight you, and they have better stuff the higher up you are. Anyways...

10 ~ 20 anywhere between there is great!

The only reason why I did that, was because during the last fight of chapter 1 I........wait, I almost ruined things. Sorry. I will just say that I screwed around alot and it was very fun...

01-27-2002, 04:04 AM
Well, Practice make you much better;)

01-28-2002, 12:18 PM
when i first played dorter i was stuck form abit... but i blew past that shizzle quickly..

01-28-2002, 04:34 PM
Durendal pointed out a big problem with this game though.. In order to get anything out of it, you have to level up often( to get the classes). But if you do that, then none of the battles are a challenge and there isn't much of a reason to play the game. Thats why I enjoy Tactics Ogre. Level up as much as you want, because the enemies level up with you, so you have to actually use skill to win. I let Vastalis borrow it, BUT IT WAS TOO MUCH FOR HIM!

GA HA HA... ahem.

01-28-2002, 05:00 PM
that is what happenes... thye level up with u...

01-28-2002, 06:45 PM
Yeah, the monsters level up with you, but the story battle characters do not level up with you

02-04-2002, 10:41 PM
Dorter wasn't that big of a problem with me. By the time I got there, I had a Knight(Ramza) , an Archer, Preist and Wizard. Delita actually did something and even managed to kill someone. I busted em up pretty good. And yeah, Golgorand is a bastich of a battle.

Right now, I have Ramza as a mastered monk with 2 swords (hella fun, especially against Weigraf in Chapter 3) a wizard (almost mastered need maybe 500 JP left) Agrias (Mastered) A summoner (with Priest mastered) and a Lancer (with both Lvl 8 jumps) havin a bit of trouble with Bethla Garrison though. Wizards kill me off before I can get a chance to get up to kill them x_X

Uhhh:o... No it wasn't... It's just that... Uhhh:o... I grew rather tired of... uhhh:o... the leveling up type thing:confused:..? uhh... Yeah, that's it:rolleyes::o:p

02-05-2002, 11:24 AM
This battle was easy, I built my Wizard up and took out the battle from long range w/ flare, Ice 4, etc... a variety of things will work, its all about trial and error :)

02-05-2002, 07:06 PM
Using a higher level wizard is quite useful. Also, if you have a summoner with Silf, silence is a nice addition. The main problem is the summoners, take them out with archers and the like, and maybe get a chocobo in the battle to get ramza closer to the melee. All in all...just dont get your people grouped, or shiva will rape you!

02-05-2002, 07:18 PM
I gotta agree, Dorter was one of the harder battles. Give Delita and Algus the "Cure" ability, and have Ramza, a knight/monk, advance, and a white mage and a black mage.

02-06-2002, 05:56 PM
here's a tip from me regardless of ur damn lvl
i've played through tactics lots of times and learned a few tricks.
first for any chapter 1 tougher battles use ALL archers with long bows crossbows are fine too but no good range.
u can smoke algus quickly just take out the wizards and forget the knights kill algus

trust me sounds gay but the archer tactic works fine.

Auron:THIS drunkard a guardian?!
Jecht: Come in here any say that!
