Yeah, let's throw a party! ;)

Dec 25, 2009 10:16 PM PST

I can't wait for this section to be up again. Right now I'm playing through the game with RM/RM/WM/BM. It's a very fun party, although not having a true fighter in there adds up to the difficulty.

Dec 28, 2009 10:48 PM PST

I like the 8-bit Theatre party (Fi/Th/RM/BM). I don't know why, but I think that party is pretty good...

Dec 29, 2009 03:42 PM PST

Aw, I love the jump to party feature.

/images/nes/npcs/ani/unne.gif
I made this website
Dec 29, 2009 04:06 PM PST

Thank Nicole, it was her idea.

Dec 29, 2009 04:12 PM PST

Yeah, that is AWESOME!

You're welcome. ;D

Dec 29, 2009 11:33 PM PST

Thanks Nicole, it's easier to find a party you wanna vote for with the new system.

Jan 18, 2010 03:47 PM PST

Its actually amazing how many different party combos there are although you should put up the solo options aswell I mean it would only be an extra six party pages

Jan 20, 2010 06:03 AM PST

I wonder if im the only one who voted on every party

Jan 20, 2010 03:31 PM PST

lolz. I'm gonna do that.

Jan 20, 2010 04:36 PM PST

Haha, I started doing that. Screw it, takes too long.

Jan 23, 2010 02:38 PM PST

4 of the 5 best parties are the same:

Fighter, XXXXXX, White Mage, Black Mage

Jan 23, 2010 02:38 PM PST

EDIT: 5 of 5

Jan 23, 2010 02:39 PM PST

EDIT: oops 4 of 5:)

Jan 25, 2010 12:55 AM PST

I just realised that ALL the parties have been down voted before.

Feb 02, 2010 09:15 PM PST

Black Belts and Thieves are totally worthless and boring

Feb 04, 2010 12:24 PM PST

No Thieves are awesome. And Black belts still suck. Ninjas are godly.

BUt fighters reign supreme

Feb 04, 2010 03:04 PM PST

don't really care for ninja's...I think they are overrated

Feb 09, 2010 04:25 PM PST

I'd like to be able to vote for Solo Parties also. Anyone else?

Feb 11, 2010 10:59 PM PST

Actually, I was just thinking we should be able to vote on parties missing a character. Fighter/WM/BM is a great party, because you level up faster and have to worry about money a little less.

Feb 22, 2010 04:45 AM PST

Hows this... Fighter Fighter Black Mage White Mage im new so i think its ok i just cant buy all spells like fire the only spell i buy is cure for my white mage and ofc weapons and armour.

Feb 23, 2010 08:12 PM PST

Question how many different combes are there in 4 groups

Feb 23, 2010 08:17 PM PST

wow 512 give or take

Mar 04, 2010 09:08 PM PST

If you want to comment on parties, then click on the party and comment there.

Mar 07, 2010 12:57 PM PST

Id like to ask can you put up the single party options aswell?

Mar 18, 2010 05:19 PM PDT

"single party"? Oxymoron much?

Mar 19, 2010 05:47 PM PDT

Its not like I've ever done one but lots of people do

Mar 25, 2010 02:28 PM PDT

Hey I only just noticed that you can change your vote if you goofed it

Mar 26, 2010 07:21 AM PDT

Why is the Fi/Rm/Wm/Bm in first, why do you need the red mage? WTF

Mar 27, 2010 05:47 PM PDT

I like red mage. He is my fourth favorite character.

Mar 27, 2010 05:47 PM PDT

I like red mage. He is my fourth favorite character.

Mar 27, 2010 06:25 PM PDT

Knight, Ninja, Master, and the Wizards should be available to vote upon as well.

Apr 03, 2010 09:25 AM PDT

It would be cool to have detailed reviews for a lot of them.

Apr 03, 2010 11:14 PM PDT

I think Brian had a few detailed reviews in the old version of the site, I think they're still on EoFF

Apr 04, 2010 10:01 PM PDT

... detailed reviews are... a mixed business. you'd have to have multiple review people kinda... cause each is gonna have their different takes. an easy finger pointy thing would be the war that's raged since the dawn of time considering BB's or not :)

Apr 09, 2010 11:10 AM PDT

Different people could do the reviews.

Apr 10, 2010 10:07 AM PDT

Thats why you can comment on the different parties already

Apr 13, 2010 06:50 PM PDT

Didn't realize that there where that many combination of parties.

Myself I avoid using two of the same class.

Apr 20, 2010 06:37 PM PDT

To state since that there are so many remakes of this game and parties that some might be bad for one and great for another version, My comments are for the NES version except noted.

Apr 26, 2010 04:24 PM PDT

Anybody notice that the top 5 current best parties all have a black mage in them??? In other news, I have a loose tooth.

May 16, 2010 04:47 PM PDT

The most useful FF1 Party picking guide on the internet. Good job, guys.

May 24, 2010 06:38 PM PDT

Thank you, for your sake I'll go ahead and take full credit for it. I'm the greetest [sic].

Jun 23, 2010 08:15 PM PDT

@Dracitus I think there are 1296 different options. 6x6x6x6=1296.

Once a BB gets higher level he is a total beast, far more powerful offensively than a knight. Still never use him though.

Jul 12, 2010 07:22 PM PDT

I once thought the theif was a dog.

Jul 12, 2010 08:05 PM PDT

explain, please.

Jul 12, 2010 09:28 PM PDT

Well since I played it on a small tv screen from far away, I thought the punching fist was a nose. I did realize that it was a fist untill 6 mounths ago.

Jul 12, 2010 09:41 PM PDT

*months

Jul 24, 2010 08:32 PM PDT

Just registered and started voting. I will reveal my methodology: Any party with Black Belts or Thieves automatically gets voted down. I just finished minusing all of them. I was very pleased to see that the vast majority of these parties were already in the negatives. Now I need to decide what to do with the remaining 35 parties.....might just plus them all.

Jul 25, 2010 07:12 AM PDT

Max, wouldn't you know, that was my exact logic in voting also - I only like Mages, Fighters, and Brooms myself

Jul 27, 2010 12:37 PM PDT

!SMOORB

Jul 27, 2010 08:46 PM PDT

I vote logicly, but I have troubl drawing the line, my standards are two high.

Jul 29, 2010 01:38 PM PDT

I voted down on most of these, going by stats, that is.

Jul 31, 2010 11:19 PM PDT

White mages make any party better. multiple red mages make them worse. I vote accordingly.

Aug 02, 2010 02:59 PM PDT

Ya, I hate red mages, but try an all white mage party, it takes forever.

Aug 04, 2010 05:26 PM PDT

at SAG: Stats are only cool in real life.

In FF1, the only stat that matters is LVL.

Aug 06, 2010 08:32 PM PDT

Agreed. What level should I be for an all fighter party to beat chaos?

Aug 09, 2010 08:58 AM PDT

50, always level 50

Aug 10, 2010 01:33 PM PDT

in the DoS version I'm going to do all of the single class challenges. which 3 should I do first? 1 per save file.

Aug 10, 2010 01:35 PM PDT

Actually, what I meant was, should I play through with an all physical class first or with an all magic class?

Sep 10, 2010 01:24 PM PDT

The easiest wa to solve your dilemma:

Red mage.

Mar 06, 2014 01:38 AM PST

Starting a new party: Fi, Bb, Rm, Wm. Going to solo the Bb up before Garland so he can be a factor in the Marsh Cave. I have equated the scoring of the party combinations as to how easy the game is to beat. This should be a pretty easy even without boosting the Bb.

Mar 10, 2015 11:44 AM PDT

I wish this allowed you to rate these. A scale from 1-5 would work better than a binary Like/Dislike. Some of these are ok, but not optimal, whereas others are very good or terrible. The suboptimal builds are either getting too much praise or not enough criticism which is preventing a community driven tier list.
