I got Black Mage too. Four Black Mages is going to be interesting.

Four Knights easily ripped through to the Water crystal, where I drew Magic Knight from Gilgabot. Lenna and Galuf switched over to MKnight and we continued ripping everything apart until the Fire crystal boss, where I feel like I always get stuck. You'd think MKnight would be good here, but every time I've tried casting Blizzara sword, I end up missing on the subsequent attack. I'll have to look up Liquid Flame to see what I'm not remembering about his strengths and weaknesses.

Woah. My level 9 black mages just got decimated by Shiva. I guess I've got some grinding to do.

Also, I forgot to mention that I learned something in this round: you don't have to fight Magissa's backup if you can kill her in one round and thus don't give her a chance to summon him.

Got through the Fire fight and drew Ninja from Gilgabot. Glad I pulled MKnight since I'm loaded down with melee otherwise. Might be slow going for a bit since I'm at a work conference, but I've been making such good time so far that I think I should be done by the end of June regardless.

I got past Shiva but now I'm stuck on Garula. He doesn't have any elemental weakness which doesn't help with my mages. Going to have to grind some more. Hopefully I get a physical attacker with the next set of jobs.

Dear God I got Berzerker. Any advice from the veterans out there? Should I just change one character and leave the rest Black Mages?

Zerkers aren't awful, but it will depend on what your other jobs end up being.

So I'm past wind shrine and we're all mages of the dark type. I'm in the ship graveyard, heading out. Yesterday didn't allow for too much playing.
