The first time I played, I picked Fighter, White Mage, Black Mage, Red Mage. I didn't get very far. My husband used the same party and mopped the floor with the bad guys. Go figure.

i had a hard time picking the most balnced (what i think it is anyway)(i had the PSX version)

Warrior/fighter- Squall (cause he's my favorite fighter)

Red Mage- Cloud (because a red mage is kind of a Jack-of-all-trades...and so is cloud supposedly)

Black Mage- Vivi (fav black mage tongue.gif )

White Mage- Celes (because I remember the first spell i used a lot with her was cure)

Like laszlow, my favorite combination is Fighter, Fighter, White Mage, Black Mage. I used to like the Black Belt in place of one of the Fighters, but his poor defense made me change my mind. The Thief is just a less powerful version of the Fighter who can't use as many weapons as the Fighter, so I never liked him. Like any jack-of-all-trade, the Red Mage is a master of none, and that becomes clear when you want to get the most powerful spells.

My first game was:

Warrior: Beoulv
Theif: Austin
White Mage: Hart
Black Mage: Seth

I never finished this one, opting instead to create a new game that I am currently playing (up to Melmond and the southern cave):

Warrior: Laguna
Monk: Cid
Theif: Baku
Red Mage: Elmdor

This set-up is a lot of fun. The Monk and Red Mage are my favorite classes and are so fun to work with.

I'm getting my way through FFI now for the first time and I've got mysef:
Warrior/Fighter - Duiker
Monk/Black Belt - Noah
White Mage - Ganoes
Black Mage - Darien

One I realized that the Monk'd be better without a nunchuku, it became a kickass party. So I'm pleased, except when whitey dies since stupid FFI has NO OTHER LIFE-GIVING MEANS! FLKNB:LDFNBF *string of cursing*

First FF1 party was Fighter, Thief, Wh.Mage, Bl.Mage -- long since forgotten the names, this was shortly after the US release.

Favorite combo would have to be Fighter, Wh.Mage, Bl.Mage, Bl.Mage. Keeping the Wh.Mage alive in the #2 slot can be challenging sometimes, but generally stuff doesn't live long enough to do too much damage.

I had picked a Black Mage, a White Mage, a Monk, and the Warrior. Just a balance of power and magic. The warrior is an always because he can use almost any kind of weapon. happy.gif

Oh, I know, I read the instruction manual that came with the NES cart way back in the day. wink.gif The issue is, with Fi-WM-BM-BM, what am I gonna put there? One of the two Black Mages? That'd be worse! blink.gif

My first party was:

Fighter
Thief
White Mage
Black Mage

Then as I grew more experienced I went with three others that quickly became favourites:

Fighter
Red Mage
White Mage
Black Mage

Red Mage
Red Mage
Red Mage
Red Mage

Black Belt
Black Belt
Black Belt
Black Belt

The Black Belt/Red Mage parties are actually quite difficult to succeed with in my experience.

I forgot what my Sig was going to be...

Possibly something involving Pie...

That was my first party. I recently bought a new FF cartidge, and have been running through the game with that party again. I think I once did an all fighters party, but that was too easy; I think I gave up on it half way through because it was so easy.

For me I always have a variation of a particular party.

Fighter - Hawk
Thief - Zephir
Monk - Tommah

The last one changes with the playthrough

Black Mage - EmGee
White Mage - Neal
Red Mage - Bobbo

Last playthrough I used Neal, and given his performance, I think he might have earned himself a permanent role. Ahhh man, the stories I could tell. He's the White Mage that could.

I remembered back in the day, the names were...

AAAA - Fighter
AAAA - Theif
AAAA - Black Belt
AAAA - Red Mage

It doesn't take that long to form that party smile.gif.

But I've done 4 Fighters, 4 Black Belts (Pretty interesting, no weapons), 4 Black Mages.

First party ever was Fighter, Black Belt, White Mage, Black Mage (So I can try out all the magics)

The most usual party was the default party, ( Fighter , Bl. Belt, Thief and Red Mage, which works pretty good, and the classical party of Fighter, Red mage, Black Mage and White Mage. Someone here tried four Fighters??? happy.gif

First time I used White Mage, Black Mage, Thief and Monk. Works pretty well but at the end of the game magic is so !@?# expensive!!! I always give my characters cool names too, like Luna. That's a good name. smile.gif
