    You have to find the individual shrines that are hidden around the map. They are placed roughly around each of the chapter 2 towns.

    Characters can only be two classes at a time, and they must have their original class as one of them - but they may use the learned skills from any of the 8 classes (the skills are the ones that you can only have 4 of equipped). It's a powerful system.

    The difficulty (required level for next Chapter) is a little unbalanced from Chapter 1 to Chapter 2. Most levels recommended in the 21-25 range, and you can easily finish Chapter 1 with any character, around Lv 12. That means, a lot of grinding. I'm about 9 hours in and my main party is around Lv 19/20. All I'm doing now is getting to everyone's Chapter 2 towns so I can fast travel there when I get high enough in levels.

    I feel like even so-called "easy" encounters take longer than they should, lol. I do understand the battle system. The enemies just have high HP all around.

    Ahhhhh, cool. I should definitely look for some of those. I had no idea that was a thing at all.

    And yeah Ragnar, I could do that, but there's no downside to her being higher level, soooooo I may as well just let her be higher level.

    Yeah, true. This game is nowhere's near perfect, but I aim enjoying it nonetheless. I actually find each chapter thus far to be interesting, even if there is a lack of interaction aside form the random "Travel Banter." Using the skills to chat with the NPCs shows a lot of thought and character put into the random NPCs which I found to be nice. My biggest problem with the game is actually how much you can do that it NEVER tells you. Such as the fact that you have a rough enemy HP indicator without using the Analyze skill. That pressing 'Y' on pretty much any menu gives you information on items/skills. Doesn't mention that you can equip a second job until you find a shrine and get access to one. I had no idea it was a thing I should even be looking for.

    Nobody complained about discovering new things in SotN that weren't explained.

    I loved 4 Heroes of Light, which is like the game that influenced the rest: Bravely Default, Bravely Second, and then Octopath Traveler.

    This isn't a story, but I keep getting emails that say;
