Nippon Ichi (Disgaea, Makai Kingdom, etc.):

Yeah, that's what I meant. Also called tower attacking by the fandom, I think.

The Raddest Pokemon Ever
I just did a Lv1 Free Dungeon in Makai Kingdom. Picked up a Syringe, a Drum and a Beam Sword (and maybe a Mystic Hammer too). On Stage 10 I solo'd my Mandragora... because a stupid Mimic whacked my tome on its first turn. Spent the rest of the stage getting poisoned by Daggers before making it to the altar Extension... where there was an enemy with a Makai Cannon.

Teach me to do Free Dungeons without my Thief.

Beep, beep, blip, beep... 98.875% chance it is his mother. Laharl != Oedipus.

So yeah, my copy of Disgaea Infinite arrived today. It's quite good! So far it seems like an entire game of Disgaea dialogue without that pesky combat interrupting things, which is pretty rad. Plus, more of Mao is always welcome.

I suppose. I haven't gotten to the point where she shows up yet. I'm in the classic adventure game scenario of knowing exactly what I need to do, but having no idea how to accomplish it. I did manage to get one of the bad endings by accident though, so I guess that's something.

I'm still early in the game. Is it worth waiting to get genius characters or are the different competency levels not really that relevant until later?

They're not relevant until you want to start reincarnating and maxing stats.

Anybody else try to make classes that have skills not fitting for them? I'm making a mage that's going to only use fist weapons.
NEETing now.

So they're not relevant at all for a new character? Or they're only slightly relevant? (Minmaxer here.)

if you really wanna blow 10k mana every time, then go ahead tongue more stats are more stats, after all.

Not really, you can always reincarnate them as a genius level class later.

Assuming you're talking Disgaea 1 here; no, not really. It's generally a much better idea to have a bunch of "Incompetents" (or whatever's easiest for you, just not Good-For-Nothings) raised to whatever level it is (200?) that you unlock the highest-level classes, then start a new character at "Genius" level from then on, if you've got sufficient Mana from levelgrinding.

Or that's what I recall some guide or another saying.

Got it. Get a group of incompetents or averages into the 200's, then reincarnate as the toughest class and as a genius. (Disgaea 1)

You also don't need to bother with that Dark Assembly approval nonsense if you reincarnate into a Genius, rather than making one outright. Loopholes!

Do you need the Dark Assembly to reincarnate into a Genius? I thought that was only to create Genius characters.

I also thought I had seen an analysis showing that reincarnating as less than the second or third best rank was basically pointless. Or maybe that was reincarnating while the character is below level 100 or something.

I do know that there was some reason they said that the only reason to reincarnate before you start being able to go up hundreds of levels at a time was to reincarnate into a better class tier, for classes that have to have a particular tier at a particular level to unlock the next tier, like with Mages/Skulls.

No, you don't. That's what I'm saying; it's another reason to just make your characters' first incarnations Skilled.

speaking of Disgeae 1, does anyone ever use the male cleric?
"Justice!"
"Dissection first, love later!"

Infinite never ceases to be quotable. I guess the writers decided that Mao wasn't creepy enough in Disgaea 3?

I want Kat's glasses!
^^I used, until I reincarnated him into a rune knight.

In fact, I have unlocked the male "bishop" tier, while I've never made a female cleric yet (I'm playing on DS, first New Game+, Laharl reincarnated once or twice, currently level 58, haven't completed Gargantua Interior because I use Gargantua Deck for leveling up).
They Called Me Mad!! I decided to show them all; but when I looked on my works, oh mighty, I despaired: for it made me realize they were right.
I never reincarnated Laharl when playing Disgaea. Mainly because you don't need to for the main story =P

And I don't even remember male clerics in Disgaea 1, so I'd presume that I didn't have one.

Also also: Disgaea Infinite looks hilarious. Isn't it for the PSN, though? :(

Maybe, but you can also get it on a UMD. Given that I don't have a functional WLAN, and it wouldn't be out in the Australian store yet anyway, that's a very good thing for me.

I don't have a PSP, sadly (which is what I presume UM Ds are for. Feel free to correct me xP).

Then again, there are quite a few PSP games which I'd consider getting if I could find them (and a PSP) at a cheap-ish price. Hum, hum, hum...

So I started a new game of Disgaea the First and I'm trying to get into Etna's Secret Room. I've pulled the lever behind the throne but I can't find the bloody entrance!

I pulled the lever in Chapter 1, but I'm in Chapter 2 now. Have I missed out on a Testament?

There's another switch underneath the skull on the shop counter. The entrance is in a suspiciously-empty corner of the middle room.

Possibly. I think you just have to read the entry for each chapter, and I think you can still read the entries from before you opened the room, but either of those things could be false.

Derp. Thought the GameFAQs entry was talking about a Mage, not that thing sitting on the counter.

Meh. Only had two-and-a-half hours in here anyways.

I'm reasonably sure that it's okay as long as you catch up.

But if you wanna be on the safe side, you could always (spoilered to be safe, since some don't like solutions being thrown out to them) lose to Mid-Boss and get a NG+.
