freespace2dotcom Posted May 11, 2014 Report Share Posted May 11, 2014 So I got to thinking.. The wait for Y2 is over halfway over (hopefully ) So I started planning on what my character is to do before he returns to the Academy. ...Since I never picked a special background my character is from Mineta. and will probably chill out there. I think travel time will be pretty important, and (advanced) Gates mages may or may not have an advantage here... Tuition. I don't know how important that will be over the summer but unless you picked the wealthy background I am kinda suspecting some time will be dedicated to earning cash for that. I don't think we'll have to cough up the *full* amount as our Legate says its heavily subsidized but I don't think entirely. Relationships. I have pretty good relationships with key instructors and 'ol mousey Emilia. I'll send a few letters to them but I'm no social butterfly. I'll dedicate maybe a weekend to writing them, tops. The one Y1 skill I really never get around to raising is the Palettes subskill. In part this is because of the games ambiguity over how related to palettes this particular subskill is, and also in part because of the higher training modifiers, so that's something I intend to focus on. Mastery and Gates? should I train them more? that's a darn good question and I am very liable to do so now that my most recent playthrough on DLC 16 had me acquire a level of 4 on them. juuust enough to say it wasn't an accident if I get caught so I think I'm going to try for a skill level of 9-10 by vacation's end. Familiars. I love my ghost familiar, Pammy, but I don't see teaching her more than a level of 2 in the pillars if even that.(and seriously. She was a wizard in training, where's her über magic skillz0rz? ) Adventures. Unless there's a real juicy one or two I don't expect to do many in summer break, but maybe the writers will surprise me. I hope I don't get too carried away. apart from that. I should hope we will know what classes we plan to take before we actually start Y2 and it's summer break but I for one am pretty confident that I meet any prerequisites for Y2s main pillar classes which, of course, will be my focus. potion-making and artifice be damned! (Though in all likelihood I may pick up a level or 2 in the course of the school year that is not the spirit of this post.) So what are you guy's (and gal's) plans for Y2? any insight to share on possible hurdles to overcome? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
