Tia - My main. I pretty much spammed her throughout the game. Follow Albert's recommendations and she's a powerhouse. Then all she needs is a bit more defense. The main thing is using her faced-paced abilities for repeatedly smashing away at enemies.

Dekar - Second. I usually give him either a sword or a punching glove. The glove is very useful for its specials, and the swords are more powerful. Plus, he's very durable, making him even more useful. Ironic, considering the fact that he was one of the less-useful characters in Lufia II because of his lack of magical abilities... although he's a must for the Ancient Slime. In this, though, magic isn't very useful at all, and he can use any weapon. Despite the fact that, once again ironically, he CAN use magic. (Even if its technically IP...)

Selan - Excellent ranged and multi-hit combo attacks. Plus, her magic is VERY useful, as well.

Maxim - I can never seem to do as much damage as I'd like with him. He's a little slow with attacks and can easily find himself very open to receiving some serious damage due to his mobility. However, out of everyone, he is THE character to use against Daos, though that should be obvious... he's the only one who can hit halfways decently.

Artea - Fourth is a toss-up between him and Maxim. To be honest, though, I never really used Artea much. He comes it late and his attacks are very hard to aim right, so I never was that great with him. I like his look, but playability is my main concern. Plus, Artea does have his hover ability--that's a HUGE bonus.

Guy - Used him for Idura #1, then shoved him out the window. In the Three Towers I used Artea over Guy. He is just too. frickin. slow. You can't DO anything with him. By the time you finish attacking (if you hit), he's getting the crap beat out of him, and his combo is so small. He has the ability to break objects, and that's the only useful thing he's got going for him.

I know it's been a long time since I've been on this forum and since this thread was active but I've only just been able to find time to play. I haven't got Artea yet but I have been playing the others.

My list:
Maxim (I always liked him anyway) but I have found his sword to be the one thing I always go back to. He is quick enough to be useful in combat and his dash attack is useful for getting back out of combat if necessary. Ironic that the skills he has are in fire since he had no fire magic in the original.

Selan: Magic. At first I was constantly using her in close combat and she was effective but her charge attacks of the spells are useful. Very useful.

Guy: He is slow and powerful but his charge attacks are....well....very useful for mass enemies and for overkill bonuses.

Dekar: I was using him a lot since he seems quicker than guy but yeah...Give him an axe and he's like guy but less useful (Same weakness-speed- Extra weakness, charge attacks). Give him a sword and he's not bad but Maxim and Selan are just that bit better I find. Mind you his usefulness in the AC increases at first as it doesn't matter what weapon you find for him.

Tia: What can I say. I just don't really like her weapons. Maybe I just haven't worked out how to use her but she has to be at the bottom of my list.
