Suikoden V PS2

Have any of you played this? John got it for me for Christmas and I'm still stuck, LOL! I've read lots of walkthroughs etc. but I just can't seem to get past a certain section. Can you help me?


After the Queen's Campaign, I just cannot get past the three bosses, Kyle and his section keeps getting killed while fighting Kahnak (I think that's how you spell it.)

It happened over and over again, and with no way of saving or switching the characters in between the battles, I had to give up on that game and start a new one. I've learned my lesson though, I will have 2 saved games this time, one before the prince chooses the three teams and one just before the battle!

Are there any particular characters I should have in these battles? I was going by who had the most HP, but I guess that isn't necessarily true if they keep getting killed! Is it magic I need or strong weapons? I've recruited Dongo the blacksmith with the silver hammer so I can get weapons up to level 12. Do they go any higher than that? I'm nearly ready to tear my hair out as that section is rapidly approaching again.

I have lots of skill points with my characters, but every trainer I've gone to keep saying they can't teach them anything more, even though the characters are only up to level C and I can't get them any higher.

Why oh why didn't the game let you save after the battle? I kept having to redo the battle again, and I hate those battles!

I like the storyline of the game, but I don't like the fact that the random battles with enemies happen what seems like every couple of seconds! And those war battles are just awful, I really hate them. I am not good at things in real time, LOL!

take care,

I'm having the exact same problem! No matter what combination of people I use they all seem to die anyway. And I hate to use people that can actually die permanently because I may need them later. :/ I hope someone can help you because I need the help too. lol And, yes, the war battles are horrible and I wish they'd get rid of them. I'm always barely winning them.

Anyway, good luck! :D

I finally got past that bit, LOL! I spent hours trying to figure out who to use etc. and these were my groups: (Everybody was around level 40, I spent time in some dungeons levelling them up and increasing their skills as much as I could first.)

Group 1

Group 2

Oh, in Kyle's group I had Marina in the entourage so that each round all my characters got their hp renewed a little.

Group 3


In every group I had at least one person carrying a clay guardian scroll and so my parties had some extra defence from that and at least 2 people who could do magic, fire magic was particularly effective against the enemies. I also used the battle formation that gave my groups +5 defence and +5 magic defence, although I can't remember what that one was called ;)

I had Miakis equipped with both a fire and a shield orb rune, which came in quite handy!

I tried to have at least one person in each group who had fire runes, if not 2 people. Levi could also use lots of different magic like earthquakes which was very good for Kyle's group.

Hope that helps you some :)

(Hopefully without spoiling the story!)
take care,

Awesome! This should help out a lot. :D Thanks! I'm glad that you figured it out.
