FE8 Reverse Recruitment LTC Run

98 posts in this topic

Yo, it's been a while that I made a topic that I infrequently update, so I decided the time to do that was NOW

Except i'll probably frequently update this one because Syrene is like the best thing ever.

RR = Reverse recruitment for those that don't know, and FE8 is like the best so I'm doing a LTC run of its RR counterpart mostly because Syrene is the best.

Did I mention Syrene is the best?

Anyway I'll leave you a few videos and maybe i'll make them a playlist if I get my shit together... it's far from done yet (im on chapter 5 lol) but I expect it'll be an ok watch if you're really really bored (or if you think Syrene is the best!)

haha i posted the prologue video, I have a few more that i'll post in the thread when I feel like it, they'll eventually all be here, up to chapter 3 should be on my channel somewhere. Feel free to ask questions or leave comment or say that Syrene is the best or Shin is a chump.

I've never done commentary in the past, and while it probably makes the videos more interesting, it takes too long and adds unwanted time onto video editing. Its possible I'll put annotations, but for the most part everything will be outlined in the video descriptions and when I post them in the thread.

Might as well use the opening crit when the game sets it up for you!

might as well post chapter 1.

I got Syrene's HP low early so she'd get more exp, Knoll is a useless turd so there's no point in him getting exp, and Syrene is much more beautiful anyway. Otherwise pretty straightforward. Duessel isn't going to be used longterm because his bases are kind of bad and Amelia is much better, and other Earlygame units like Ewan and Cormag make better use of the exp.

It is way more interesting that the normal RR patch I know, as that has some confusing stuff(Kyle is the Lord or something). Could you upload your patch? I liked Yuno in 6 RR, so I like that Syrene, too.

I don´t get why Syrenes starting weapons are silversword/steelance instead of silverlance/steelsword though. Her C Sword rank in the normal game implies that she is superiour in lances.

I saw "FE8RR" and I really thought my hack had been leaked somehow xD. But it's not Random Reclass, it's Reverse Recruitment.

You tricky dog.

Interested in seeing more of this.

Duessel has the bases of a scrub, what a shame. Is there any page showing the base stats/ranks for all characters? Just to know what you're dealing with here.

the last video i left audio on for (i hope), you even get to hear me grunt once, so amazing

Chapter 2 is pretty luck reliant, im not gonna lie, but c'est la vie. Ewan's offence is really bro.

There's definately a google doc somewhere with the bases, i'll see if I can dig it up. If not i'll throw one together while I progress.

wow thanks zm you found it I knew it existed, I'll put that in the op as well, thanks dude

:awesome:

Is it bad I enjoy Reverse Recruitment patches more than the vanilla games? Having Syrene early on is just ridiculous, and then you get bros like Ewan (who's actually good!) and broettes like Amelia (also really good!) down the road, too.

No problem, man.

yeah something funky happened with fe5rr, since so many people had negative bases, I forget

also TETHYS SYRENE AND SHOTAMAGE do their finest work thus far in chapter 4.

at first i was just going to go two turn whatever with Cormag going south, but then this plan was so much better.

Definitely following.

Also, does anyone know what was the thinking on which units were promoted at 15 and which were promoted at 20 for their new base stats?

I think it was for balance, but I don't see why natasha wasn't 20/1 or something so I forget.

and uh, unless im totally missing something I somehow deleted my save, although it shouldn't take too long to get back to where I was since no recording and I know how to do everything now

chapter 5 done in 2 turns with all the villages. this one hurt my brain a bit

also added music to this one because im the master of windows movie maker.

One thing I like about these is that you don't RNG abuse. I could feasibly see myself doing these exact same methods to LTC because you don't use RNG Abuse to get constant crits and etc.

I try to avoid crits where I can (unless its like a killing edge or something), but I will probably be massaging the levels a little bit (namely Ewan's Magic, Syrene's Strength, among others I can't really think of). Ewan landing hits in chapter 2 was a little iffy, but the rest of the run (thus far) should be pretty clean

EDIT: FOUND MY SAVE IT SOMEHOW MOVED TO A DIFFERENT FOLDER WITHOUT ME MOVING IT

Technically anything is replicable in GBA FE, isn't it? There has been pretty iffy stuff so far (like Cormag's boss kill feed in Chapter 3 at 38% hit) but the way FE GBA RNG works, you can rearrange stuff to your favor.
