So as I came back to the world, still no news with the 7 remake, unfortunately.

I got FFV on my phone and just beat it today. Liked it, a bit of grinding with ABP but in the end, Lenna became a summoner, and everyone mimics. Mimic'd a dual cast of Leviathan and Bahmaut aganist Neo-Exdeath. Everyone w/haste and no MP cost? Yea I didn't even get hit by him.

Now I'll try and do the bonus content.

I have a question regarding the license boards in FFXII. Are you able to give a particular item or ability to someone else in you party who has the right license for it. I don't see a way how I can equip them as such.

As long as the character has a license for the item or ability, and as long as you have the item or ability available in your inventory, the character should be able to use it. In other words, it's not enough for your character to just have the licence to use Curaga; you also have to purchase the spell from a store so that it's in your inventory. EDIT: or find the spell on the field, which is required for some

I've been playing a lot of the post game in FFXII. I obtained all the Espers, and have completed all the hunts except for Yiazmat, which is the superboss of the game. There's another secret boss I'm aware of, however every time I think there's nothing more to do, I always find something. Ashe as a Black Mage / Bushi is OP as hell, especially with the spell Scathe. Balthier as a White Mage / Archer is also pretty awesome, and he's equipped with the Turtleshell Choker which allows him to cast spells with money instead of MP; as long as someone else has the Cat Ear Hood, which converts licence points into money, this is completely viable. Once all my characters are maxed out in level, I should be able to breeze through Trial Mode, which will be the last thing I'll do for the game.

I've re-optimized my job configuration in FFXII, focusing on variety of abilities, as well as which role suits each character's personality. I realized it was redundant keeping the White Mage and the Archer together, because they both can learn Raise; better to split the jobs between two people so that I can have more coverage of people who know Raise. I also realized how useful the Monk role is for having so many supporting abilities, so I gave it more priority during my distribution process. I kept my emphasis on ensuring all characters could target flying enemies, and as I currently have it, the only two characters that don't know a Raise ability are my primary tanks (and they can just use Pheonix Downs if necessary). So behold my optimal configuration, and I challenge anybody to improve upon it. (Please do, because I want to make this team better if possible).

SPOILER: Show
Vaan - Shikari / Monk:
Secondary Tank and Secondary Support
Notable Abilities: Steal, Telekinesis, Raise, Esuna, Curaja, Holy,
Flying Enemies? Check
Raise Allies? Check

The Shikari is a wielder of daggers with high speed, meaning more frequent actions, and is the only job with natural access to the Telekinesis ability (which allows melee strikes on flying enemies). The Monk offers extremely high vitality, high attack, as well as several supporting abilities that essentially make it the second White Mage (arguably more effective support than the Red Battlemage). Vaan is the all-rounder, so emphasizing his skills all round is useful.

Balthier - Machinist / Red Battlemage:
Secondary Tank and Secondary Support
Notable Abilities: Steal, Raise, Curaja, Darkja,
Flying Enemies? Check
Raise Allies? Check

The Machinist is a gunner, and is Balthier's implied native job. The Red Battlemage is a cross of the Black Mage and White Mage roles, learning the average abilities of each, plus a few unique ones of its own. I also like Balthier as the Red Battlemage because it's more closely associated with his father's occupation.

Fran - Archer / Foebreaker:
Secondary Tank and Secondary Support
Notable Abilities: Cura, Raise, Steal
Flying Enemies? Check
Raise Allies? Check

The Archer is Fran's implied native job, and also can access the Cura and Raise abilities, making it useful as both a secondary tank and a secondary support. The Foebreaker is a high vitality role, usually used as a tank. Fran is another all-rounder with relatively weak stats, so the added vitality helps her out.

Basch - Knight / Uhlan:
Primary Tank and Secondary Support
Notable Abilities: Telekinesis, Esuna, Curaja, Regen, Bravery
Flying Enemies? Check
Raise Allies? NO

The ultimate tank, which Basch is naturally suited for with his high attack and vitality. The Knight can potentially access Telekinesis, and can also learn some secondary support abilities. The Uhlan is a spear wielder, and offers the highest damage output in the game.

Ashe - Black Mage / Bushi:
Primary Tank
Notable Abilities: Scathe, Flare, Firaga, Blizzaga, etc, Steal
Flying Enemies? Check
Raise Allies? NO

Ashe has the highest natural magic, as well as a decent attack, so I stuck her in as the primary offensive magic caster. The Bushi job wields a katana, which calculates damage based on magick power, so the pairing with a mage is always a good choice.

Penelo - White Mage / Time Battlemage:
Secondary Tank and Primary Support
Notable Abilities: Arise, Renew, Regen, Bubble, Esuna, Haste
Flying Enemies? Check
Raise Allies? Check

Penelo also has a really high natural magic and high vitality. As the White Mage, she is the primary supporting role. The Time Battlemage wields a crossbow, allowing them to target flying enemies, and uses time magic, which is most useful for Haste.

Sorry for a double post, but Episode Ardyn was announced for FFXV and the December patch will add the ability to switch and play as any of the bros in the main game at any time, ultimately fulfilling the feature so many people wanted :D

That actually is a neat detail to add. I'm glad I haven't finished XV yet, and I may actually be tempted to start a new profile eventually.

After a year of lurking and stalking eBay auctions, I was finally able to find and buy the FFXV LE Artbook for a normal price. It only came with the limited Collector's Edition of the game that cost nearly $500 for me in Canada - so I was very upset I missed out on it.

It was tough finding it, the book goes for $300-350 USD on eBay, it's insane!!! I managed to snag a brand new one for $150 CAD, woohoo, and it only took me a year -_-
