 Post subject: I'll Whup Ya!
PostPosted: Tue Aug 26, '08, 8:09 am 
Once Kyra has left the group, Rune and Chaz fall into their familiar friendly bickering. Chaz gives Rune and opportunity with the line, "Am I that undependable?" Rune pounces on the opening and Chaz fires back with a Lutz comment. This leads Rune into the perfect line to match this cutscene: "You want to get whupped again?"

lol Rune is definitly a funny character he takes life as it comes in an unserious way. He's some good comic relief to. Its a shame it takes longer for him to level up his HP though. :x

I love that scene! It shows that Rune and Chaz have come a long way, in terms of starting out abrasive and with tension, to becoming the best of buds.^^

Agreed, Lucas - Rune Walsh is awesome. :mrgreen:

[face=Times New Roman]He does advance relatively slowly, but I imagine this was entirely deliberate on the part of the programmers.

If Rune levelled up any faster, or had equivalent HP to the other characters, it would probably make him too strong and the game too easy! Not only does he have a remarkable repertoire (Legeon, Efess, etc), but his unmatched Mental stat (the highest of all nine characters) makes his spells incredibly powerful, even at middle levels. Have you ever compared one of his attack spells/ techniques to, say, Kyra’s, at the same level? If you pick something that doesn’t require Dexterity (like NaFoi or Flaeli), the difference in damage is quite significant.

The problem, as you point out, is that many of his other stats, and particularly his HP, lag way behind. He has some innate magic defence, but his physical defence is pitiful. Consider it a natural compensation. :) The way to get round it, as you’ve no doubt already noticed, is to give him shields. If necessary, give him two shields during a Boss battle, because you can’t afford to lose him :wink: It’s just a shame that he can’t equip the more powerful shields in the game.

Oh, and if you haven't done so already, place Rune right at the back of your party, so that he's less likely to get hit. :) The only character I'd even consider putting behind Rune is Raja (who has a similar profile, with a soaring Mental score but low HP).

I agree. I appreciate the time that it takes for Rune to gradually become more god-like; it is such a joy when he finally learns Effess and Legion.

Bumping up this former Image Of The Day!

Rune and Chaz, serious talk or just joking?

Excellent picture ! But both of them seemed to be joking and grinning at the same time ! Maybe Rudy/Chaz is starting to get used to Thray/Rune's jokes and teasings ? :)
