Etrian Odyssey 5: All Achivements Complete!

So yeah, defeated Stratum 6 boss and got all of the achievements. All that is left for me is to play through the game a couple more times to get multiple copies of a certain treasure-chest-only weapon to complete a couple of the characters I have and then defeat the Stratum 6 boss several times to create multiple copies of his weapon to complete a couple more characters.

Compared to the other games (not including weakened EO4 boss). the Stratum 6 boss is not a puzzle boss. You do not need as much of a specialized party to defeat him, giving you much more freedom on thinking up strategies.
And no, he isn't easy just because of this. I'd say he is a pretty well-balanced boss.

Oh, and here is the QR code for my Guild. It comes with a Lv99 Retire Lv99 Reaper with Lv10 Soul Gather. And yes, she is the face of my Guild. Her skill build and stats are at the bottom of the post. I was able to read this image from my 3DS, so it should work.

Etrian Odyssey 5: Farming and Grinding

Yes, there are DLC for EXP and Money, but let me just say that there is absolutely no need to buy them. Because it is pretty easy to grind.
However, yes, these farming methods are for end-game. If you want to overpower yourself through DLC early on and, IMO, ruin the experience for your first playthrough, then DLC is the answer. And yes, DLC is still faster than this farming method, but it isn't that painful to just grind in-game.

Etrian Odyssey 5: The Broken Skill of the Game

I guess you can say all Etrian Odyssey games had a skill or two that could be abuse-able or in other cases, skill sets that were broken. I would say the move for Etrian Odyssey 5 is...
Necromancer's Zombie Powder to Equal Exchange or Merciless Shield (rough translation).

Oh, and spoilers on boss stats and such. No story spoilers.

Etrian Odyssey 5: Final Impressions

As of, completing the game and going to the 30th floor. I haven't defeated the hidden boss yet.
So these are my thoughts after playing to this point...
Oh, and I tried to avoid spoilers.

Etrian Odyssey 5: Halfway Point

So yeah, finished the 3rd area of the World Tree. I mean, there isn't that much to be said. Good old Etrian Odyssey. I personally still prefer the sub-class system in Etrian Odyssey 4 over the new system, but it is still better than the grindy New Etrian Odyssey grimoire systems.
Also, the customization for characters is greater than ever. It's too bad the skin color is set and you can't create your own skin color out of RGB though.

My party at the time of the end of the 3rd area + thoughts..

AhhhH! Princess avatar is so cute! Her positive motion, especially (brushes her dress and laughs out loud)

New Game! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

And yeah, it is Etrian Odyssey 5. Of course, right? Fuhahahaha!
And since I did start playing in the Demo version, I've already went past the 1st boss. I'll probably not go through each floor by floor like before, though I'm not sure what format I want to document playing through the game.

Culdcept Revolt: Battle Diary 2

I'm currently trying to unlock the Princess avatar, but damn, it is far away. You can get the up to the Strategist avatar fairly naturally while unlocking other stuff, but the Princess avatar onwards is a long grind.

Anyways, some more battle impressions online:
