Do you liked the long eidolon animations or the short one?

I like the long ones because then I can go make a sandwich or something

Don't the long ones have a higher attack power?

I like to see the long animations once or twice, but after that I prefer shorter.

If you have the ability Boost active it will display the long attack animation, which also increases their power. I'm not actually sure if there is an option for long or short animation separate to this.

I like long because your HP continues to rise if you have Auto-Regen on (which you should :mad2:).

I NEVER use eidlons/summons in any game. The time invested for them is not worth the damage they do.

Consider using Ark with power boost. This would deal about 5000-6000 damage and takes about a minute for the summon. Conversely, using "Shock" with Steiner, "Dragon's Crest" with Freya, both deal 9,999 without 5 second cast time. I don't see the appeal of them.

The only thing I would use it for it perhaps Summons like Carbuncle. Adding Haste/Reflect to the party would be useful.

Honestly, same as Mr. Shauna. I did find them useful in Kuja's Castle, though.

The only summons I really use are Carbuncle and Phoenix (when I just can't heal fast enough and everyone's dead). I always use Eiko in my party over Garnet anyways.

I feel if you can make a cup of tea in the length of time it takes to get an attack off, then something has gone wrong.

This.

If anything, I use them as a stepping stone before getting the actually good attacks. In FFX, i used them as meat shields.

That was the best use for them in X. They were great against Malboros in particular.

Oh I didn't even think about auto regen just ticking away as it went through the animation.

Of course I like short as I want to get on with the battle but IX did it well with the whole long ones being boosted.

This is my thinking exactly. For the first time to see the whole sequence played through and see the entire show in its beauty, I'll love the long version. However, once I get a glimpse of the entire scene, I want to see just the shortened version to speed up the battle. No need in wasting precious time. :cool:

I prefer long animations because they deal a lot more damage, and they let Auto-Regen restore more HP. :)
