Geekery in General 235: Final Fantasy Record Keeper Worst Characters

May 2, 2019 @ 11:51 pm

At the time of this recording Final Fantasy Record Keeper offers more than 200 playable characters. Not all of them were created equally. Some characters from this game have limited skills or a small selection of weapons and armor. These handicaps can limit their effectiveness. In some cases even having a couple of soul breaks for the character won't do them much good! Al and son discuss who they think are the least useful characters in the game.

CORRECTION: Al mentions Ceodore gets a record material that gives him a high chance to heal an ally when using knight abilities. This is incorrect. It is only a moderate chance.
