Your favourite girl...

I don't think we have a topic/poll on them, not for the game at least.
Which girl was your favorite in the Xian Jian game? Reasons can be based on essentially anything and feel free to voice your thoughts and opinion!
Vote now =D

My fav no doubt goes to....

Ling Er! I thought she looked really cute, I liked her personality, so innocent and so..powerful XD I loved all her different elementals attacks. I also liked how she could "mass" heal other characters too :3

I voted for Lin. She is the hero's only partner in about half of the game, and it seems only she will do something like this in a battle :)

well... Li will try to protect everyone who is low of HP or not sane, but no one except Lin will ever do the same for Li :)

That's very interesting. (Yueru blocks for XY)

My favorite character of course is Yueru, but in terms of power, she is the weakest of the 4. She is also the only one who doesn't have special powers. All her skills came from her father.
Wow, is this nostalgic or what.

Battle wise: Linger. The mp regen feature of this game, while really necessary for the dungeon design, rather favors a high mp caster like Linger. This, I think, is one of the few old school console RPG where casters are favored over fighters. Her AoE spells tear through enemies much faster than Yueru's spells or normal attacks and are more efficient than Anu's. The dream snake transformation is a bit overpowered for boss fights and the last dungeon.

Character wise: Linger. This is a personal preference, I think. In terms of the process of character development and the amount of detail that goes into characterization, I think Yueru had the best. I just don't like what she develops into as much as Linger's character.

Still not very sure. Haven't play the game. But looking at your comments I think Ling'er will be better. I have always loved elemental attacks.. :D

It was Ling Er who kept me playing ^^ I really liked using her in battle and hoped she would end up with Xiao Yao.. when she disappeared I was looking forward to finding her (probably same anticipation as Xiao Yao had)

Haha.. Most likely because Ling'er is the main female character... LOL. Since Xiao Yao is the main character who should be present at most of the times, who else but Ling'er and Yue Ru could you look forward to?

...and I wonder why such behavior (Lin Yueru covers Li Xiaoyao) has been removed in the NewPAL XP version, which sucks :( :( :( :evil: :evil: :evil:

Also, if you want to change which player will cover Li Xiaoyao, you can open the data.mkf with a hexeditor, goto offset 3C22, and change 02 into:
00 - Li Xiaoyao (well... this is meaningless :))
01 - Zhao Ling'er
02 - Lin Yueru
03 - Queen
04 - Ah Nu

To change who will cover other players is also possible, just goto the following offset:
3C22 - Li Xiaoyao
3C24 - Zhao Ling'er
3C26 - Lin Yueru
3C28 - Queen
3C2A - Ah Nu

Note that this will only affect new games and not previous saved games.

The blocking/protecting is very interesting ^^ I never noticed that YueRu was the only one who protects XiaoYao though of course I've witnessed it, and never remembered LingEr doing it for XY (but i just assumed it was because Ling Er didn't stay in the game that long).

My favourite character goes to YueRu. I think its mainly because we use YueRu for more than the first half of the game and I just grew to like her heaps. Her character development is nicely done and I think she's more interesting with XY than LingEr, and think they are better as a couple. Attack-wise I don't really mind her, because I don't have a preference with "magic" attacks.

And now she leads :)

Although I really feel for Ling Er, I think Yue Ru is the noblest character in the game (doesn't she die protecting someone? I only just started playing this game again after years!) Also I like her attitude - I think her initial meeting with Xiao Yao is a lot more fun and she's a lot more flirtatious/aggressive in what she wants than Ling Er. Plus, her main weapon is a whip! :wink:
