  1. Yes, though the treasures don't always have a 100% chance to spawn except for low level stuff. So it is still possible to miss things cause the treasure chest only spawns 30 to 25% of the time. There are some chests that still stick to the annoying 1% spawn as well, but there is usually another way to get the item. Lots of gear has been moved around as well and if you want to break the game early, I'd advise doing the Gilgamesh fight as early as possible cause the Lhusu Mines have some insane gear/spells waiting for you in the second half. This does kind of create some awkward balance though as I was able to get Scathe long before I unlocked Holy, Scourge, or Flare which is as broken as it sounds except that elemental damage is still way overpowered in this game.

    The Zodiac Spear and Zodiac Shield are now attached to the Hunt Club quest. You can either get one of them by giving all of the trophies to either Atak or Bloc depending on which you want, or you can give each of the brothers ten trophies apiece and the merchant will sell both items for a ridiculous price.

    Treasures have been moved around, but not enemy drops. So you can still farm the really powerful Gladius Knife from the Rare Game Wolf in the Westersand (I highly recommend this since it will be the best weapon for Shikari for awhile) to name a few. Some item rewards for Mark Hunts and side-quests have been changed as well though not too much.
  2. Am I correct in assuming that, despite that, they’re not missable? As in, no more Zodiac Spear shenanigans - you can always go back to a place and hope for a red pawn?
  3. Yeah, a good chunk of the magic and most of the Techniks are now treasures you have to find.
  4. I’ll need to look into that once I get all the peeps and all the jobs. Right now, I’m having fun with just Vaan the Shikari. Penelo the Black Mage has been pretty cool so far too. I found a blind spell in Giza Plains and that turned Thextera and Flowering Cactoid into cakewalk basically.
  5. It also helps that certain support licenses are shared among all the boards so leveling it up on one will have it shown as picked up on the other board. This means in order to get all of the valuable Speed, Strength, and Magic licenses, you'll have to plan carefully. It was the reason why I gave Monk to Basch instead of Foebreaker cause Foebreaker ultimately had the exact same support licenses as Knight, and if I wanted to get any more boost for Basch, I needed to switch him to the Monk which earned him another speed license and a crap ton more strength and HP licenses.
  6. Yeah, I was actually thinking of doing that. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining - I was worried having two boards just eliminated all need of making sacrifices in this game, but it turns out there’s this and that’s great.
  7. That's inevitable I'm afraid, especially since Knight and Bushi have several great options, so they will likely take on all of the Espers. Shikari also has an annoying one that involves getting access to a strong mid-level ninja blade early, or the end game ones, which you'll likely not see until Giruvegan. It's honestly one of the better implemented mechanics for the new license board. I will say you should hold off accessing Quickenings until you give your party the second license board.
  8. Now I’m kinda stressing out over how I’ll play my Quickenings and Espers on the board. I’m worried I’ll have my way to some useful licenses blocked
  9. It's certainly a better cast than most of the fans feel it is.
  10. I think this and VI may actually have my favorite casts from the numbered games.
