I did Savescum in my first Week Fitness from 1 to 5.

 

100 % Attendance

Merit: ~1100 – 1200

Unlocked all Favor unique Prices (Phemes, Spells, Books and Abilities etc.)

Unlocked all Merit Prices

Exchanged Familiar Rock with Hawk

Hawk Bond 5 with some minor training

Classes

Calligraphy : 35/160

History 63/160

Dialectic 40/135

Arithmetic 12/220

Music 60/181

Athletics 39/110 only 4th or 5th Place

(Self imposed No Magic Class Challenge)

 

Research only in Mastery Phemes 10

 

Besides getting all Favor and Merit Prices ( Which took a suprisingly long time)

 

My Focus was to finish as much Adventures as Possible,(Which is why my Attributes are so High and i had so much stuff to sell).

I used a lot of Hypnotismus and later the Master Spell. I had pretty much had all the time at least one person under Controll.

To Avoid Save Scumming, using spells for High Attributes helps.

Due to this i barely actively trained Skills and instead relied on the Sill Steps from the Adventures, which resulted in me doing so many Adventures except Oan, because i never skilled up Duel enough for the Requirement. (Ups)

I also used Anecdote a lot and occasionaly perform epic, so i have great Relations with most of the student Body and got their Adventures.

 

 

 

Astrology:Comet

Omen: Shattered Mirrors

Family: Secret Heritage (im not really interested in Gates and will probably exchange it for Prodigy: S&S for Flavour)

Family: Black Sheep

History: Artisans of Skill ; Descended of Royalty and Heroes

Deed: Negated and Lonely Sentinel

Prodigy: Spiritual / Life of Avarice / Center of Attention

Page and Purple Academy of thei

Familiar: Rock

Friendship: Hatred

PS. Is it true that doing too many Adventures, has a negative effect in Year 2

 

I wont be using this PC for Year 2 unfortunatly, i tried Dueling and me winning the Duel crashed all Save Files i had. LOL

Interesting strategy; I will have to try it myself.

(For some reason the Attributes are way more unbalanced than last time)

 

Merit: 1.194

All unique Favors and Merit Prices(over 100) acquired

 

proffesors at 10: Orsi, Sixt, storey, ,Massioti, violante and Viada

 

Clique: Aaran Ledale, Ana Flavia Bessa, Carmine Sturzo, Cinzia Amm., Lambert Cobo, Rui da Cosgar, Vincent Eins, Zoe Melis (Several People invited themself in)

 

Notable Friends: Everwine von (12), Prudence (11) and Myia (11)

I was very Popular, more than half of the Student Body had a Relationship over 4

I also started to Like Myia a lot. I had a RE which was really sweet.

 

Skills: 392

Highest: Revision (19), Astrology (15), Arithmetic(14), Negation(14), Glamour(13)

 

Research: Mastery Phemes 10 + 18 Random Points thanks to the Sphinx who sometimes gives out Research Points.

 

Classes

 

Music 80/300

Calligraphy 23/270

Geometry 26/270

Dialectic 41/245

History 47/360

Arithmetic 26/320

 

My Goal again was to do as Many Adventures as Possible.

I Did the Captain Story Line, all non-Student Adventures that were Possible for me and around 1/3 to ½ of all Student Adventures. I have Connections to most criminal Main Players in Mineta but still decided to Bury The Book.

My Adventure Tap was Empty at the end which is my personal Goal in the Game.

 

I did this by using the Crystall Bridge, Hypnotism and Clear and Remake until around Mid-Term

and After by using Perform epic, the Master Spell and Sphinx a lot.

Im a Full on Mastery Mage.

 

Should Y2 ever come out, and Research is really that important, i probably would reduce the Student Adventures and perform epic and instead Focus on that , but until that this will be my prefert Character.

It is unfortunat that most Relationships will go down during the Summer Vacation.

 

 

Im still amazed that several People have Skills in the Mid 400s with perfect Attendance and DONT use Mastery.

I Did all Student Adventures except Vettor(I do not like him) and the negative Phillipe one and also almost every other Adventure (all Adventure i could unlock).

 

I did finished my Goal to do all Student Adventures, but i have to admit it was not that much fun.

It was more grinding and list checking than anything.

I unlocked the Master spell in the first or second Month and then Spammed it to no end.

I also used Perform epic for the Relationship boost and found out way to late that the Level 3 Gossip action was way more useful. But i did end with more than 2/3 of the Student Body with a Relationship above 5.

Suprisingly it was not that optimized especially towards the end of the Year.

Due to all the grinding i just wanted to finish the run.

I did noticed after Midterm that i would have to spend all Actions towards Student Adventures if i wanted to do all. Which unfortunatly resulted in me not be able to do anything else.

I wanted to Exchange my familiar and work more on my skills.

I could get a lot higer skill number because a lot of them lack one out of three to get higer.

It was also rather annoying that Adventures tend to reward the same Skills over and over so that like 1/3 of Adventures at least got no rewards for my character.

 

I also got stuck on the trials of the inventor because, after you fail it one time you cant buy the items again and so the exit is the only thing you can do ( Even though the items where in my inventory).

Seems to be a bug, same happend in another playthrough with the negation wand.

 

The positive is that i learned a lot about the game and lore + i found out that you can spam weasel words as often as you like and not just once a week like i originaly thought.
