Hey guys, I finally got my copy yesterday, Newegg's "3 day" shipping sure did take a while :P
I've played about 12 hours already, really enjoying it so far, first thing I did when I got the ability to capture familiars was get a bonehead and I have him to level 2 now...but it seems like every familiar I've tried just ends up being less useful than your starting familiar, Mite or whatever his name is. Currently I have my bonehead morphed to his second evolution and he's level 11, my mite is morphed to second evolution as well and he's level 17, it seems like Bonehead is only really good against a couple types of enemies while Mite seems pretty good against just about everything, I'm not sure if it's just because Mite is 6 levels higher or if bonehead's physical only damage is what's hindering his usefulness.
I'm also having a lot of mana trouble, once I run out that's pretty much it until I find an inn or a save point lol. Quite enjoying it though, I'm surprised I'm liking it as much as I am.
