Post Your Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Party Selection

I'm going with


Vaan- white Mage/machinist
Ashe- monk/black Mage
Fran- uhlan/time Mage
Baltheir- bushi/knight
Basch- shikari/foebreaker
Penello- redmage/archer

Only thing I don't like about this is wasting Vaans great stats as machinist but I want him in my party so i made him main healer. Fran always was my least favorite so I gave her what I think I'll use the least. This set up uses all jobs, otherwise I would probably use less magic.

Should be able to subtlement with Espers too, but will need to read up online before I finalize that.

    I haven't had a chance to start yet, but have been planning this. I was initially going to balance things out and use all of the jobs, but I think I'm gonna say screw that and go powerful. Still planning right now, but found a couple great guides.

    Considering this right now.
    Team 1
    Penelo (Shikari/White Mage)
    Basch (Shikari/Foebreaker)
    Balthier (White Mage/Machinist)

    Team 2
    Ashe (Red Battlemage/Shikari)
    Fran (Black Mage/Monk)
    Vaan (Knight/Time Battlemage)

    I'm sort of wanting that yiazamat killer build in that first link. I'm planning on going for a platinum and beating all the ultimate bosses, which i never have 100% ff12.

    That one is tempting, but I figure it has to be doable with other setups, so why not?

    I have a different question--which job combination would best suit each character's lore? I plan on doing more than just one run (the first one I'll probably not worry about any side quests and just have fun with the story).
    What would be a good class for Ashe as a vengeful berserker with zero regards for her own safety?

    Well, based on each character's starting abilities and sequel/spin-off roles/jobs, this would likely be the most "cannon" selection, though it notably does not cover all 12 jobs:

    Ashe - Time Battlemage/Foebreaker
    Vaan - Shikari/Knight
    Balthier - Machinist/Shikari
    Fran - Archer/Red Battlemage
    Basch - Knight/Archer
    Penelo - White Mage/Monk

    Darn. I got a tad too excited and just started picking my own classes before I saw your post. And I think yours make so much more sense than mine.

    As someone who has nooooo idea what good combinations are, and as such has chosen almost entirely at random:

    Vaan - Shikari/Foebreaker
    Penelo - Monk/Black Mage
    Balthier - Machinist/Time Mage
    Fran - White Mage/Archer
    Basch - Knight/Bushi
    Ashe - Red Battlemage/Ulhan

    Now the L1 button controls the fast forward, but if you hold it down and push left or right on the d pad you can switch from 2x to 4x.

    That's interesting. I thought you needed to change the speed in config.

    I never cared for black mages in FF, but I figured I'll try one with Ashe. And holy crap, how did I manage to not use black magic at all in my last playthrough? This game is sooo much easier with ample of AoEs.

    Well, I finally started playing, and I am using this set up:

    Vaan: Monk+Red Battlemage
    Penelo: Black Mage+Knight
    Balthier: Shikari+White Mage
    Fran: Machinist+Foebreaker
    Basch: Archer+Uhlan
    Ashe: Time Battlemage+Bushi

    I had same opinion, and I can tell magic is so much better now. The way you naturally get mp now helps. Game is much easier.
