Echanted Arms - Casino problem

    After returning to London for the second time (after a 5 hour shift in the school ) I decided to save my game and enter the casino. It was 4 in the morning and I thought I'd have a 10 minute spree in there before hitting the sack. I turned all my TB into chips/tokens (about 15,000 TB) and promptly bet them all on red in roulette. I won. I kept betting and betting until I had around 4,000 tokens. I then played on the 777 fruit machine (using all 3 lines) and won the jackpot. To cut a long story short, I had so many tokens in the end that I bought everything in the prize section.

    Only worry is that I haven't got any TB left and I've noticed a load of new skills and golems are available in the shop. Question being - 'Do I carry on the game with no TB, but all the casino prizes or am I going to need some of those newly available skills to progress?'

    Hmmmmm. Help.

    Well... TB isn't all that hard to come by (I say that, although there hasn't been a point yet where I haven't been broke). If you have the will, find a place with some decent-strength monsters and a healing crystal nearby, and spend a while building your TB up again. I'm not sure if you'll have the Double TB support skill by now, but if you do, have someone learn that and it'll obviously help.

    In any case, the new skills that appear in the shop from time to time are obviously helpful, but I wouldn't go mad trying to buy them all at once. Most of them are exactly the same as what you already have, just a bit more powerful. Just buy the best (read: most expensive) skills there for Atsuma and Raigar, and if you have some spare cash upgrade Karin's healing abilities and Yuki's attacks when you get the chance.

    You should be fine.

    Damn. I can't even spell the title properly. Does this make me as stupid as Atsuma?

    Not if you managed to operate the 'A' button on your 360 pad without Toya or Karin explaining it to you.

    I'm quite a long way in now, and Atsuma is still being told to press A by various people. Will he ever learn?

    Somebody should tell him to press the 'B' button just to see if he catches on...

    If you still have tokens trade them into the casino for "Gods Nectar" (i think that's it). Costs 400 tokens and you can sell each one to the shop for 2400.

    Take the 2400 and gamble it. I personally save the game, put 100 tokens on each of 21-29 and spin. If you lose, reload, if you win save, rinse, repeat.
