        also it's pretty clearly stated she likes the clovers because of the superstition where if you get enough you'll live forever or something, not because she's obsessed with the number four or the shape of the clover or whatever

            It's not really hard for Mio to do better as anything other than Zephyr, before release people used to say she had made Lanz and the whole XC1 tank class redundant because dodge tank>heavy tank, but in reality she's fragile as fuck and the second she starts pulling aggro she dies as soon as she gets hit, so running her as a Zephyr without Heavy Guard Lanz to counterbalance is a really bad idea.
            She however does wonders as a Troubador, I mean, if she's gonna be fragile as shit anyway you might as well give her good healing, this also helps her not draw much aggro.

          The big reason I've seen for Signifer Lanz is that hos chain order and ouroboros finisher are awful, so you'll never pick him in chains. This means he won't attack, and can keep power charge for the entire chain attack and pass it every turn, instead of losing it and wasting a turn using cross impact.

          Sena makes a good signifer for the same reason, but she's better as an ogre.

            Some of the translated Agnus class names are dumb as fuck. Crusher was fine, no need for Ogre. Incursor (Attack Knight), Strategos (literally just Strategist), and Stalker (Phantom Archer) are fine, but Thaumaturge and Seraph are really random choices since the originals were closer to Alchemist and Soaring Knight. Signifer for Stellar Knight I'm alright with even though it's a bad translation because the new name is at least meaningful.

          The best healers are support classes and you don't need a high healing stat to make them good. Their regen is usually sufficient healing unless you're doing positionals on a big enemy.
          Lanz's TP is shit and Healers are mostly Chain Attack fillers so it's not a waste to have him heal.

    Was the party aware that by defeating Z the world they live in and their current selves would dissappear? I don't remember them ever saying anything like that and I was surprised during the ending scene when Taion says the worlds will split apart. They never really have a discussion about explicitly sacrificing themselves.
    Also why did Taion give Eunie a book to keep even though she wouldn't be able to keep it as the worlds would reset to before the endless now. He even mentions writing it with Kevesi ink and notebook so it'll last. Were they even aware that they would stop existing? Did Melia and Nia mislead them?

      They found out after the fact that the worlds would split. I don't think any of them expected things to go back to the very moment of collision. If that were the case, things things like Taion giving Eunie the tea wouldn't have happened because even he would have thought it pointless.
      I have to wonder if Melia and Nia even knew quite how Origin would work once put back together, considering how fucked up everything had become.

    • 2 months ago

      Sort of. They learn about it in Nia's postgame quest which I guess canonically happens before they beat Z but is hidden from the player to keep it a twist (which is retarded).
      I think not making it clear exactly what was going to happen and the party getting to discuss and make their final choice before the actual ending sequence is the single greatest misstep of the story.

    • 2 months ago

      For some reason the game locked Nia's quest that explains it to the postgame. No idea why but canonically it seems the party did all the quests before finishing Z off.
      Taion's notebook is weird. But if the game made a prominent focus on it, we can at least theorize it survived the reset since Origin is guided by emotions of souls within and we already have smaller scale precedents of previous incarnations impacting the physical world like Ashera's scar resurfacing again.

      It seems that Mio is playing the flute Noah gave her after the reset, so objects might have survived through it, which means Eunie could still have the book too.

        I think it's far more likely that the thing that connected Noah and Mio are just their emotions that took the shape of their melodies because Noah's part starts playing in response as he's standing on the town square with an astonished look on his face.

          With how hamfisted they made that Life Sent On motif in all the emotional scenes I was expecting that all the offseers around the world would've joined in to offset Aionios as it finally annihilated itself into a ball of light similar to the start of the Klaus experiment.

          That way it could cleanly end with Origin recreating the one singular world where they can meet up with each other again.

            The fact that the offseers are such an important theme of the game but they never once get to off-see anything or anyone we care about is just one of many missed opportunities.

            Imagine if the game ended with the Homecoming of one or more of the main characters, or indeed all of Aionios. Would have made for a much better bittersweet ending than the confusing one we got.

              The off-seer thing is discovered to be pointless bullshit by mid-game when Noah off-sees the mud golems and they let off motes even tough they're specifically stated to not be real people, it is one of the systems put in place by Z to control the population by giving them false hope about an afterlife and keep them from thinking too hard about the glaring inconsistencies in their lives like the Armu thing Noah and Mio talk about, the whole game is a gigantic allegory for the prison Earth theory.

        For me the first 4 chapters hardly felt slow with all the different mechanics being thrown at you left and right and so much unexplored areas naturally walled off by high level enemies.
        Even with the increased stakes at the end of every chapter I was wondering how are they gonna manage to top this next chapter.

        In fact by the time I got to Chapter 5 I was saying it's too early for this end game level of hype I was expecting at least 10 chapters.
        Also it was too much too fast. So much emotional fake outs that muddy up the emotions that they were trying to build towards.

        By the time I was in Chapter 6 I just wanted the game to end because I knew there wasn't any other big twist besides learning how Z relates back to Klaus.

          The number of chapters has always been inconsistent among the games, but the game lenght in general is similar, if anything 3 is fairly longer than 2, the reason the game feels like it is barely starting by chapters 4-5 is because that's where the bulk of the story happens, they really do spend far too much time trying to reach Swordmarch.

      if you count all memory and personality stored "a person" then yes. M pretty much cloned her entire mind over Mio, and vice versa
      a lot kind of forgot the clause of "when M mindjack someone, M herself cant move". At the beginning of the fight M(io) has already been completed and both M(io) and (M)io are one and the same (aside from the different body type, clone or moebius), thus "my word is hers, and her will is mine" in the prison

        I really hated how they made Mio's body gasp after the transfer when it's supposed to be M in there and should be fully aware of what happened. Then had her acting shifty in the background which seemed more like someone who only now learned the truth, but was keeping quiet about it.

        Also wondered if Noah interlinking with M wouldn't have felt slightly strange to him since memories are shared and all though it's easy to relegate that to only first time fusion.

        It felt more likely that the true final swap happened after N planned the side show and M and Mio give that sudden side look to each other.

    Holy shit the amount of connections different factions/world form by the end of the game certainly makes me feel the post-credit scene cuts off minutes before the worlds are about to be reconnected on a larger scale. Basically every Colony got at least some connections with outworlders.

      Noah, Mio and Sena are better off as their base classes because of their attack buffs + fantastic abilities/passives
      Swordfighter Noah is Zenobia tier tard attacker with Unlimited Sword on top of it, Ogre Sena is a break machine, Zephyr Mio is by far the best tank in the game and you want her attack as high as possible to draw aggro better.
      The rest are whatever you want.

    So i am at the beginning of chapter 6 and i dont get the characters at all. Did i miss something or why is nobody in the party asking the most basic questions. Oh cool we are ouroboros and must defeat the evil moebius! Yeah but what is that exactly and how does it work and what are moebius and why are they that way? It just drives me mad.

      This, holy shit the secret areas in this game were bad. The only cool one I can think of was the spring in the desert and the blue place above the falls. This whole game in general was really underwhelming when it came to visuals, which is by far my favorite part of Xenoblade.
      It left a really bittersweet feeling to me because I really appreciated the narrative and gameplay aspects of the game after the absolute shitshow that was 2, but man why did they sacrifice the actual exploration for it? 2 had some awful level design but at least some of the areas were visually and/or conceptually impressive.

        i like the joyless, desolated feeling of the walk from Aetia to Swordmarch, esp Alfeto, and it augmented the awe when you reach the sea and lost colony. but yea they toned down on the colours and eyecandies a bit too much during that segment
        and at least the skyline is phenomenal this time when you can see across the regions. My favourite bits were the trek to the uraya trail, then looking back and seeing colony 4 peaking out from behind a cliff, and that sheer cliffside during your prison infiltration overlooking Bionis head. The scale is magnificent

          I wouldn't consider that really world design, that seems like more of a narrative tone take. All the areas in the game are just reused from the other 2 worlds but without any of the cool shit from them. One area that I thought was really cool was the Malevolent Hollow and the Geothermal Strip leading to it.

            this is my biggest problem
            there's practically no identity in the areas
            it's all a literal mishmash of shit from 1 and 2 with no identity or discerning characteristics to it
            even the areas that should be really cool like maktha are designed terribly and super tiny
            it's literally just a couple of buildings and one big ass tree. then a poison swamp at the bottom. you take 3 steps and boom you're in the next area doing the big bad showdown against the castle

                Because is the first area, it´s a novelty, the problem is all areas are a variant of the first area.

                Second area is just first area but red + fairy village

                Third area is just first area but gray/black + some verticality

                Fouth area is just first area but blue/white + glowing blocks.

                The four main areas feel totally different from each other. Compare the long Sweeping valleys and caves in the first region to the sprawl with territorial factions in their own biomes of the fourth area. The only commonality between them is the sand and ruined buildings.

              So? It's still the same shape and size crystal formations, but broken and burned out by the sun; other callbacks like Mor Ardain's hand also use modified models, it doesn't mean it's not Mor Ardain's hand.

              Are you one of the fucking retards who insist upper Aetia HAS to be Valak because "hurr durr ice and snow"? Other locales also changed radically, Fallen Arm used to be a tropical island; riddle me this, genius: Why is upper Aetia shaped EXACTLY like Melnath's head if it is supposed to be Valak Mountain?

Its only when he is called out for being selfish that he stop fucking around and put his full strenght to the cause he is pretending fighting for.

    For the anons who asked awhile back, there actually is a way to model swap into an Ouroboros without noodling due to height difference. All you have to do is also replace the chXXXXXXXX_field.mot file on top of the usual model files. The downside is that all you can really do is walk around (can't run, jump or swim), but you can still get some cool screenshots out of it I guess.
    This also works on any NPC that has a field file. Some of them (like child Noah/Eunie/Lanz/Segiri, Shania and X) can even run.

      The way I see it, the experiment somehow made Klaus and Galea resonate with Ontos (Alvis), being an Aegis allows him resonate with whoever he wants just like how Pyra/Mythra choose Rex and how Malos ditched Amalthus.

      Then Shulk getting a third monado is like Rex getting Pneuma. The Aegis deciding his Driver is worthy enough to use it´s full power.

      So yeah, basically a Pyra/Mythra/Pneuma situation but without the split personality.

    The only 3 character we can be sure is related to a recurring one is Mio being Nia's daughter. Anything else is guesswork and speculation.
    That said, among those who lack direct evidence of known parentage, Crys is a strong candidate for being Shulk's spawn. (As much as I want to think Noah is, too, it's a bit of a stretch, though besides minor resemblances his mark does mirror Crys' mark)

      Noah could be a literal Vandham related to "Vangarre" in BIonis (it's his uncle/grandfather maybe) but it doesn't make a lot of sense that way considering he wouldn't know anything about his past life on Bionis to name himself that, unless every soldier in Aionios has a surname we're not told about. Most if not all Xenoblade characters outside of nobility aren't given surnames iirc, excluding X.

      What's interesting is XB2 Vandham isn't even really called Vandham he just made it his nickname because of some guy called Vandham he looked up to as a kid. So I think a similar thing happened in 3 where Nia told M about her Vandham to Mio and she named her and Noah's son after him continuing the tradition of adopting the Vandham name. Or they didn't name his son Vandham but Nia's story was passed on still so N and M's descendant just named the house of after him.

        I doubt it, honestly. Like I said, I mostly chalk up Shulk and Noah's similarities to them being mostly the same protagonistic archetype. (In my personal opinion, you could take Shulk and Fiora, and Noah and Mio, and swap games, and things would play out virtually identical between either couple. Biggest difference being MAYBE Noah wouldn't be 100% oblivious to Melia and would let her down gently.)

            Fat fucking chance. If 3's Homecoming scene is anything to go off of, he'd just cry out for her and writhe on the ground. He could just have easily pulled out L7 at that moment but didn't.

              Noah witnessed Mio die countless times and he always manned the fuck up before. This time the circumstances were different because N was specifically trying to break him.
              He would've gone apeshit on Mumkhar even harder than Shulk did, or would predict this situation happening and prevent Fiora's death in first place because he clearly has more common wisdom and tactical skills than Shulk.

      One of the writers for 3 said he would like to make X2 next and revisit that side of the series but who knows. I think Monolith Soft have built up enough good will at this point to make an X sequel and then potentially port X to Switch afterwards if it does well like XC2's success paved the way for XC1 Definitive Edition. Takahashi said the only reason X hasn't been re-released is because of the money it would cost but if a sequel did well I think that'd clinch it.

      I don't think it's a huge risk either. Set X2 on a different part of Mira in new city like New Tokyo which was cut from the original game, have a new cast and an actual story to follow to get newcomers on board like XB2 and XB3 are friendly to new players and have some X characters carry over similar to Melia and Nia in 3 so Elma, Lao and the Black Knight could show up at least to asset or antagonize the new characters.

      When you upgrade swordfighter, it gets additional edges on it which kinda makes it look a bit similar, especially given that it also has a triangular symbol on it.

          It's just a symbolic gesture. He is finally free to throw it away because he's free from being a soldier.
          Riku states that the sword is always with him so i have no doubts he can still summon the thing after a reset if he really needs it.

    I think that Noah is thematically related to Malos, and in my opinion is infinitely better than him being directly related to him.

        The biggest difference is that Aionios is significantly more fucked than Alrest, and Noah has greater justification.

            The very beginning of the game highlights that Noah thinks very differently compared to the rest of the cast, directly questioning the world before the party meets up.

            Those characteristics apply the most to know, and given that he is also the de facto leader, it's not hard to see that he is at the very least thematically related.

        No, he's clearly thematically related. Literally a leader of Torna 2.0 on top of wielding a literal endbringer and wanting to end the world.
        It doesn't matter if he's not Malos, he's clearly fulfilling Logos functions anyway.

    And I don't use that meme word lightly. I remember exactly why I got hooked by this game. I still cannot grasp how people didn't like Rex. He's not some annoying chunni brat with overhyped dreams. He's a pretty chill, go with the flow dude. Pretty damn low energy, just doin his job. He became a salvager because he thought Elysium existed, and maybe there was a trick to getting there at the bottom of the World Tree. It's a legit job, while exploring his more naive optimism. When Nia is constantly busting his balls, he fires back at her like a pro. He's a cheeky cunt I swear.

    As much as I love Tora, I think him and Poppi are what made people write 2 off as 'too silly/anime'. A case could also be made for Zeke, but two comic relief characters was a big ask, even if Zeke basically dials down his goofiness once he joined the party.

      >t.Rexfag

      I agree though. I remember when I first played 2 i initially hated his guts. By the time I hit the World Tree I was rooting for the guy and genuinely felt bad when he was being ripped apart and crying at the dinner table.

      I've softened on Rex over the years.

      The only thing I don't like about him is his dumbass mickey mouse clown shoes and design.
      Though it's still somewhat enjoyably goofy.

        I say Rex has more human flaws the Noah and Shulk does since he is more prone to mistakes then either one of them and his lack of experience in fighting compared to more professional fighters he goes against makes his losses stand out more compared to the other two. He has to more rely on others because of his lack of experience and strength which makes sense since he the youngest of the all the Xenoblade MCs.

              Noah hears the Kevesi Flute (important because Noah has the Agnus flute by the end of the game while Mio has the Kevesi) and when the birds fly he disappears.

              Current theory is that he fucked off to Alrest to see Mio.

                Not just a kevessi flute. It's a tune that was specifically his own, and it's called "Off-Seer Noah" in the OST. He gifts it to Mio, and she starts using it after a flute exchange.
                Crys, for example, has a distinctly different version and during a dialogue with Noah even mentions that his tune is now different.

                So in the end it's shared emotions between Noah and Mio that manifest through those tunes and allow them to sense each other again and reunite.
