Hey guys! So I started a new file the other day and I was really enjoying running through the story again and reobtaining the first ones. I could actually use good ol’ Zephys in battle once again!
Anyway, this got me to thinking how once you get to the end of the game the only First Ones worth using are really just Tiamat and Deucalion. This is a shame seeing as how they are such a major factor in the game.
So my idea is this. How bout once you have beaten the game you implement a way to increase the power of your other First Ones? It could be a series of end game side quests, that can only start after you have
A. Beaten the game
B. Gotten that particular First One to grade S. ( This would give you a reason to use them as well)
After you have met these prerequisites, you will be contacted by that First One or Casper. (Whichever yall prefer) You will then be informed that they have slumbered for long enough and have regained their full or true power. In each First One’s particular way it will then send you on a mission ultimately requesting or leading you to have a rematch with it.
Now you could just make the First Ones way stronger, harder to beat, and keep them how they are, or you could also give them an entirely new form to go with their full power/ true form.
Once you have beaten them then you would either receive an upgraded version of them at their full power instead of just a fraction of their strength or if you decide to make new forms for them then you would receive their “true form.” In either case you would have to re- rank them all up. You could implement this for all of the First Ones except for maybe Tiamat and Deucalion as they are powerful enough as is. My idea is really just to make all of them useful again.
As an added bonus depending on what you guys think, after you have gone through and mastered every First One and gotten their upgraded versions to rank S you could make it so that we can receive them as playable monsters like in DIB or you could make it so that we could actually pick their moves after we summon them. (This would of course be limited to solo play only and not usable in the infinite dungeon)
This is just a fun little idea that I came up with that I think would be fun to see and give some new life to the end game and under-appreciated First Ones. :wacko: Thanks for reading and let me know what you guys think! Any suggestions would be appreciated!
