Friendship Rune or a Higher Elemental on weapon?

Postby knight85 » Fri Jul 14, 2017 11:59 am

title says it all

i'm considering some plans for a future playthru of this game

one of my plans involves cheating extra friendship runes in for characters in endgame.

but i'm not sure if that's the best way to go when i could also put in higher elemental runes instead

so my question is. which is better for physical attacks. a potential 54 (unless nonstars count) or the 50% damage boost from a rage or thunder rune?

i figured that.

and i dont talk to people enoughin game to justify kindness runes. so i'll just need to amend my plans a bit.

that means pesmerga can keep the rage rune on his sword.

i'm a bit away from playing suikoden 2 yet neway so i'll have a few weeks to alter my plans

at least i have my armor and item plans sorted. runes should be easy

the only other thing i need to plan out is who i'll be using in the luca fights so i can sort out my magic boosting plans. and that wont be finalised until i actually play the game up to the point of the luca fight

i would say it depends on how you use the character. if you're using special attacks, the elemental runes don't help. if you're just spamming Double Beat, the elemental runes are great (but rare).
