I may be mistaken in this, but is Tellah the first player character in the Final Fantasy series to actually die?
Ahh, I had a feeling I was wrong. I haven't played whichever game those guys are in. Are they all in FF2? I have "Dawn of Souls" for GBA just haven't gotten around to it yet, I played about 20 minutes and the leveling up system annoyed me.
Those three fellows are indeed from FFII.
He is the first major character to die, but at least his death still didnt make him a waste of EXP and training like someone else in the series...
I don't even have th DS remake, and he sounds like possibly the worst playable character in the entire series. If they want him to be more useful shoudn't he have the highest Spirit and Intellect of the entire group plus his MP being off the charts. The reason I say those stats should be higher is due to his old age --UndyingvsSephiroth 14:00, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
um...he knows like every magic spell in the game...
No, Tellah is pretty worthless. He's stuck at 90 MP, so despite knowing all kinds of great spells, he can't do much. Arise for example, wonderful spell, but it takes 70 MP. You'll never be able to use it. Porom is a far better Black Mage. Polom, Celes, and Rosa are better White Mages. Rydia was better at everything.
well ya..but at least he could cast all the spells--griff 00:05, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Hey to Bluehighwind, aren't you talking about Meteor, it costs 99 MP, he can learn it yet unable to use it (which is ridiculuous, he's a sage, at least 255 MP should be his limit, something tells me Square has a problem with realism, but then again they wrote it and it's their fantasy). ARISE COSTS 70 MP and his limit is 90 MP, he can cast it, the only problem is the fact he uses 7/9 of his MP and I don't know if his MP can regenerate somehow, but it takes an Ether to make him cast it again (or is it like that with all the characters). --UndyingvsSephiroth 01:04, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
pray and bless heal mp--griff 01:06, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, you can use it. But the waste in MP is so great that it is completely impratical. He only can only 18 uses of level 1 Black Magic spells, 6 uses of level 2, and 3 uses of level 3. Rydia, at level 10 can use more Magic than Tellah at level 30. He's a joke.Rosa is never in the same party as Tellah, so that plan is a waste.
oh...well i guess your screwed then :)--griff 01:17, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
So to end this possibly, Square screws up when balancing characters and abilities especially here with Tellah, most jobs, and offensive magic around the end of the game. --UndyingvsSephiroth 01:45, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
The thing is, he doesn't have any more MP because suposedly casting Meteor (99 MP to cast) would drain all the life on his old body
Yeah that might possibly true and a little funny. Speaking of which isn't there an old guy in FF6 that is a playable character and he is a sage. The only reason i know him is because I seen a youtube video of the Kefka final battle and he said something about a child or grandchild, i don't know clear me up without too much spoilers. --UndyingvsSephiroth 02:01, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Never mind my response. i found out it was Strago, which is a blue mage. One thing I find weird is that Strago is 70 and Tellah is 60, so why does Strago have more energy and MP, and a lottle useful. While Tellah is an absolute downgrade of Fusoya with extremely low MP. Shoudn't Strago have a problem as well. --UndyingvsSephiroth 02:17, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Maybe Tellah smokes? Apart from that it is just charcter stats so actually it is not [Missing word]
..our business and this is a wiki (guessing the missing word). Anyone wants to take a shot, I'm not that good at noticing something right away. --UndyingvsSephiroth 02:40, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
I mean that stats don't influenciate the story because Tellah is "A great and famous sage" so he should have a lot of MP well... yeah...DAMN!
Do you mean that sarcastically because on the sage page it says they usually have low MP because of their specialtize in magic or for the fact saying how should this influence the story. If Square was going to put him in the story and as a playable character, shoudn't he be more useful. Nonetheless, something tells me that talking about his stats are weird because of his age, he should be a big expertise in magic and tons of MP to even himself up with the young guys. Nonetheless, we should end this soon because hell it was the creator's opinion and like you said Meteor could cost him his life. --UndyingvsSephiroth 02:58, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Once again,yew all hate meh. ;.;
Tellah = USEFUL. And there is nothing anyone can do about it. Blue could have done something about it,but since hes gone,no. Tellah IS useful. 10 good reasons why!
1. Tellah can cast every single magic in the game.
2. Have a zillion ethers and you can never worry about Tellah's 90 MP limit.
3. His stats don't go down THAT much!
4. He actually tried to revive Palom (yay!) and Porom,even though it failed..
5. If he didn't blow the crap out of Golbez,we would have to do that PAINFUL fight against Golbez... AGAIN.
6. Without him,no awesome quote: "You spoony bard!"
7. When Cid and Tellah yell at eachother because they are both old,it is so hilarious XD
8. He looks cool ingame,but Amano makes him look like a dork (His artwork makes most characters look like dorks...)
9. Hes way more useful then Cid,I'll give ya that.
10. Tellah. Lol,what a funneh name.
So zippity zap,blah blah blah,you all hate me,blah blah blah but it won't change a thing. THERE. I SAID IT.
