– Phil’s Helpful Gameplay Tips

 

A continuation of Tutorial and the conclusion to the prequel to Phil the Druid. Honestly, I would appreciate it if more useless video game characters were like Phil – make it clear that you probably don’t want to keep them in your party from the start, so you don’t bother wasting time leveling them up for no payoff. I much prefer that to characters I dislike from beginning to end turning out to be some of the best units in the game (I’m looking at you, Sylvain and Ingrid from Fire Emblem: Three Houses [I know those two have huge fanbases, but none of you guys are reading this anyway]).
