Oh no, Sazh's stats are low! :(
« on: June 22, 2010, 06:38:10 AM »
The magic stats may be understandable, Sazh ends up being quite a terrible Ravager, but has anyone ever given time to think the reason his stats are so low is because for every attack slot, he attacks twice? ::) He has two guns, so he in fact does double of what his stats say. Just thought I'd get that out there because I find him to be really underrated in gameplay, even if I don't use him much myself.

So I'm guessing this thread has nothing to do with this post I made:

I always wondered why his stats are so low compared to everyone else's. When I completed the game, he had low strength compared to Vanille and Hope and low magic compared to Fang and Snow. (#1)

Nevertheless, I could care less about his stats. I just wondered about that, I still use him no matter what because I feel like he makes a good COM and SYN. I did forget to mention that he had the best version of Blitz after all.

Actually no, I didn't even see that post yet. :o I saw some people on a youtube video hating on Sazh because of his weak stats. Thought it was unfair. :P

Actually that he uses two guns doesn't mean you can double his stats ::) Its simply a fact that he has relative low stats. His magic stats make him end fourth, placing him just above Fang and Snow. And his Strength isn't really impressive either.

However Shaz is the first to reach Haste, an ability which most can't reach until you've almost reached the end of the game. His other Syntergist abilities combined with his impressive high HP makes him a good choice for a sportive role during boss fights. Some might favour Hope for this place, but one might argue if keeping hope alive is worth the trouble if you can also use Shaz.

And despite his low magic stats he's actually quite a good Ravenger. With weapon ability like "stagger maintainance" he can quickly stagger your opponent.

Basically said he might have the worst stats compared to the other characters, but since he's more of a supportive character, who mainly relies on his syntergist spells and weapon abilities, I can't see why those stats should even bother you.

Oh, well sorry for the inconvenience.  :o I just thought you posted that because it was after I posted my opinion on Sazh, and I actually felt a bit offended lol.

They seemed like pure Sazh haters, too bad I forgot which video it was but bleh, not worth the time. Nah, but they got me thinking a bit and then I thought well everyone, even myself, thought that Sazh stats were horrible, until I realized that for every attack, he does two half-damage attacks, adding up to one full attack.

Oh, well sorry for the inconvenience.  :o I just thought you posted that because it was after I posted my opinion on Sazh, and I actually felt a bit offended lol.

Don't be. It was just a coincidence. :P Sorry if I made you feel that way though. =\

We should find something amazing that Sazh can do, post a video of it, and be like "In your face!"

Sazh is awesome. Period. He has the second most HP, tied-to-best synergist (with Hope), and thats pretty much it. Haha! Oh yeah, can't forget about his funny personality and c'mon, that chocobo is pretty cute. :D

His low stats also compensate for the fact that most of his weapons max out at the highest stats available (Rigels for instance). Stagger Lock is completely unimportant unless you are using Fang. Even if you are using Fang, Deneb Duellers and Spica Defenders are perfectly respectable weapons. Sazh is a specialist, you just have to find the right mix of party members and weapons to make him really shine. :D

Even if Sazh sucks I don't care because he's still a very awesome character. :D

I still use Sazh for Adamantoise farming once in a while since Hyades Magnums * + Blitz + Adamantoise's huge hitbox = death and pwnage of epic proportions.

yea the only time i use Sazh is for admantoise farming because of his blitz move

other than that i find that he isn't very useful compared to Lightning, Fang, Hope and Vanille.

I've actually been thinking of putting a character quirks post; too many people just look at base/weapon stats and nothing else.

He doesn't get anything extra out of Attack; only Blitz is special.

However, you can "kite" a lot of enemies with Attack and ___strikes, as he moves backwards during them.

He also works pretty well with Random: Instant Chain; Procyons are part of the gestalt bunch and Coldblooded has the most hits of anything you can use.

You cant argue with haters, they dont listen.

I liked Sazh, despite all this. The only character I never felt like slapping, not once...
