BoF IV - Masters Location and Guide

List of Masters

           If you played Breath of Fire III, you're probably already familiar with how the Master system worked in that game. If you're unfamiliar with that entry of the series let me break it down for you how Masters work. Basically, having a Master assigned to a character slightly changes what stats increase upon level up.

           Masters also teach you skills when you perform their specific requirements which make them useful for more than just leveling up. Some of these skills are extremely unique and can not be acquired through any other means. Abbess, the master in Chek has one of the better abilities that I have seen, just to give an example.

           As for leveling up, I would recommend Marlok or Kryrik because they give raw HP/AP. If you decide to participate in the Fishing Minigame, you'll be able to increase your stats through trading fishing which means you should definitely go with Marlok or Kryrik if you plan to go that route.

Stoll Master Location & Guide

Stoll Master LocationStoll Master Map Location

Requirements: Give him all your money. Spend as much money as you can before recruiting him as your Master, it doesn't matter if you have 1 Zenny or 1 million he takes it all.

Master Bonus: Filch - You sometimes steal items when you attack, but only if you don't already have the item. Note: Filch also causes your attacks to do a lot less damage when it tries to steal an item from the target. It's kind of like a Pilfer ability; it does probably 50% the damage of a regular attack but also has a chance to steal.

Stole will teach you new skills depending on how many items you have in your inventory.

80 Items: Steal
120 Items: Coward's Way
