    Nom nom nom The Characters of this Game (SPOILERS)

    FF9 was the second FF i ever played. And the first one I completed.

    It holds a special place in my heart. For me, this game was the easiest to complete and required the minimal amount of walkthrough advice and help.

    However, I find Ive only been able to complete this one using five of the eight characters. When I've tried using the others Ive failed to fight off Necron.

    So......what I want to ask is: What are the pros and cons for each playable character in this game?

    Mine are as follows.....

    Zidane

    Pros: His Trance and his Attack power
    Cons: He cant steal all that well, even when you up his success rate. And his regular skills mostly suck.

    Steiner

    Pros: His Trance, His normal Attack, a couple of his of his Sword Arts, his Sword Magic is arguably better than Vivi magic
    Cons: He is underused in earlier battles so you have to work to level him up later.

    Garnet

    Pros: She is a good White Mage in terms of Curaga, Esuna etc... and provides good final battle back up
    Cons: She's a crap Summoner and Ark isnt worth my time and effort. She's not even as good a White Mage as....

    Eiko

    Pros: Curaga, Full Life, Holy. She learns so few Summons but for me they are the best Summons of the game
    Cons: I cant think of any gameplay wise. She can be an annoying brat story wise, thats it.

    Vivi

    Pros: Pair him up with Steiner and watch them kick the crap out of monsters. He's small and great at the same time.
    Cons: His Doomsday move requires protective equipment

    Quina

    Pros: Mighty Guard is so easy to get
    Cons: Mighty Guard takes so much MP and doesnt last the duration, gets KO'd too easily

    Freya

    Pros: Reis's Wind, White Draw, Jump, Winning that Coral Ring for me, she is a valued member of my team early game
    Cons: She is also underused later in the game, and appears weaker

    Amarant

    Pros: Chakra
    Cons: He seems to be an afterthought who appears too late and his equipment is too expensive


    How about the rest of you?

    FFXIV Character

    Freya Meow (Sargatanas)

    Default

    Freya is the best character. No other characters compare.

    Con: They made her less relevant toward the end.
