- Alignment and timing changes many things in this generation.
- Being either too far light or dark can prevent events from spawning, possibly causing you to miss recruiting new characters.
- Keep an eye on your turn count, taking too long to reach certain events can cause the gauge to shift from a Light Bonus to a Dark Bonus (or vice versa).
- If you're using the perfect path guide along side this, then you should be fine. If your alignment is different, keep in mind you may see different events from whats listed.
- Random battles will have random enemy formations. If you don't get whats listed, don't worry; the list is only to give you an idea of the tier/level that can spawn.
- Spelling and names: Keep in mind that for some characters/locations the names may be different depending on whether your playing the EU or NA version.
- Names in the guide should match the names of their associated wiki pages (e.g. the NA version).
- Rex - Main Character
- Returning Characters - Plum, Qua, Ellis, Vira-Lorr, Vashtor, Reverie, Sharona and everyone else except 4th Generation's hero and heroines.
