Character Changes After 5 Years

Character Appearances Change

The five year time skip is reflected as the students have changed in both appearances and demeanor. Due to the hardships experienced in those five years, some characters may even have had a complete transformation in their personality.

The Three House Leaders After 5 Years

Better Weapons And Equipment Are Now Available

The second part of the game allows the player to use powerful unique weapons. Because of their effects, repairing them requires either special actions or materials. It is recommended to use them only against strong enemies.

Recruiting Characters Changes

The first part of the game allows players to recruit other characters by talking to them and meeting their requirements. This changes in the second part of the game as most of the unrecruited characters will leave the monastery, permanently locking them out of recruitment.

Advanced Training
Click to Enlarge

After the time skip, the "Faculty Training" option will be replaced with "Advanced Drills". The main change is that the main character can now be taught by the students. Instructors or professors that were recruited in the first half will also be available to teach. Results are based on the difference between the main character's stats and the student's.

Scouting During The First Half Is Highly Recommended

Scouting and recruiting characters before the five year time skip is highly recommended as they can become part of your house even on the second half. Due to story events, some characters may leave or become unavailable.
