I dont know if I was being obvious enough with Maguss ominous line. If not, I will point out that that background is part of the Space Pirates Mothership.
Ooops. Didnt see this comic yesterday.
...XD Conicidence? Or what?
And I never really liked Mangus.. his barrier change thing was usefull and effective (enough) durring his first bass battle, but his second and as a usable character.. he sucks.
MAGUS DOESN'T SUCK!
You just need to know how to use him. He has very powerful magic, a strong offense and defense, and (on a none battle note) is just totally kick ass!
Also, after you get the accesories that unlock the Crono-less Triple-Techs, you can do some serious damage, especially with Dark Eternal.
The only combination I found that made a stronger character was Crono equipped with Rainbow sword (I think that's its name, the one with the 70% critical hit rate) and Frenzy Band (80% counterattack rate). He was doing critical-counters on Lavos' scene shifts (lavos core battle).
i used gold stud for all my char
less mp consumption
Murphy's a bitch...
