  • His Experiences

    There's a commotion in the Colossus this morning. As the assistant navigator, it is naturally my duty to police what's going on.

    It's Barton, I see, with an SMG and seeking to duel %s... But why would a Legion Commander like him come here to fight %s? Regardless, I must prevent this, for sure!

    Soon enough, I learned from a shaken bystander that Ms. Gronru had casually mentioned losing a game of rock-paper-scissors to %s, and Barton mistook that for %s besting her in a fight.

    Allow me to quietly state for the record: Given the physical stature of %s, Barton may just end the fight in one punch!

    —Vice

    His Story (I)

    Hey! You're here! Sorry about that! Hahaha! I nearly flattened you with one punch! What? Do I look that scary to you? Although I look terrifying, I'm nothing like those who fight and kill all day! I'm a proper soldier! Although I also survive by killing, it's different as I don't like to bully weaklings—yes, people like you!

    We should be able to have a good fight here. Why are you hesitating? Just relax! I think I'd be staying here on the Colossus until all the Eclipsites are dead! Hahahaha!

    His Story (II)

    My favorite activity is fighting! Boredom is what I hate the most! Life is so boring nowadays, and others are even involving themselves in the training I prepared for those recruits who sleep way past noon! I don't understand why Reinhardt is so timid. Doesn't she realize that those guys in Lumopolis will be a threat to us sooner or later?! If I was in charge, I would find an auspicious day to gun down their lair! I really feel like pumping their mouths full of lead when I see the contempt on the faces of the nobles!

    I would have killed them all already if I wasn't a soldier! If Reinhardt continues to make us recuperate like this, we might as well just retire!

    Speaking of it, do you have time to play a game of chess with me right now?

    His Story (III)

    I thought I was a capable young man when I participated in the Emperor's Cup! I thought I was quite strong, but I actually came almost last. I-it was exhilarating! But... Maybe I would have seized the cup if I used underhanded methods back then! What? That's wrong? What does a kid like you know! In war, the right move is to do everything you can to win! You can only choose between winning or dying!

    I'll tell you something you would probably never think of. Do you know who the champion was that year? It was my old acquaintance, Gronru! Hahahaha! She was only 15 years old back then, so she gave me a huge shock! Teenage girls are fearsome indeed...

    His Story (IV)

    I don't feel like mentioning what happened in the war back then... It is the most humiliating thing in my military life! So, you better train and stay vigilant to be prepared for war at any time!

    I must thank my superior officer, Pango. My military career would have ended if he didn't cover for me! That's why I admire him from the bottom of my heart. He is a true officer and a real man! Of course, I would like to have a proper fight with him if I get the chance to in the future. What happened back then was a joke. I don't care if I'm a superior officer or not! Do I look like someone who would frame someone else for an empty title?! It doesn't matter if you are the superior officer or the subordinate, only those who can walk away from an explosion without looking back are real men! I was young at that time and always felt like I was underestimated on the battlefield. I wanted to prove myself to everyone else in that battle later on, and there was so much blood on my face when I left the battlefield that I almost couldn't see!

    Now? Since Pango put so much effort into teaching me, I have to keep my spirits high at all times so that he can enjoy his elderly years in peace. Hahaha!

  • So you're that special person?

    Where are you? Hey! Come out!

    Hey there, Navigator. Looking for a quick battle?

    Navigator! Wake up...!

    Ah!

    I don't know what's happened to me recently, but I've been obsessed with having a full-course barbecue meal for breakfast.

    Black Umbrella's newly developed drink is pretty good.

    This Colossus of yours ain't bad! It's got just about everything!

    What do you think you're doing?

    I heard Umbraton has a new wargame! Have you heard of it?

    The sun is so harsh this afternoon.

    Why is it so quiet around here?

    Hey!

    I'm getting ready for bed, kid!

    I just got back from the rookie training camp today.

    Hey, kid!

  • Power Puzzle

    Hiiro invites you to go sightseeing in Gannon City and gives you a strange note. She also tells you about the story between the Illumina Generals and the note.

    Barton's Concerns

    Following an Illumina meeting, Barton approaches you and explains the situation... Turns out he's concerned that the other three generals would try to recruit you.

    A Game of Chess

    You merely ask Barton what the purpose of war is, but he forces you into playing a game of chess. After unreasonably declaring himself the victor, he reveals that victory is the sole purpose of war.

    Admiral Barton

    Barton embarks on a journey to expand Illumina's Navy...

    • Tap on the Colossus Room

      The Illumina has been focusing on trades lately. Sending bean-counters to war is a terrible idea. They're just begging for an utter defeat.

      Get a load of the old-school knights from Lumopolis! What are they thinking, demanding duels in a battle?

      Splendor Illumina!

      Given lousy commanders, incompetent officers, and soldiers blindly following orders, what else can you expect other than a motley crew?

      Why does Hiiro drone on about Bushido? Silly! You're supposed to sneak attack in a war!

      Given a chance, I'll definitely tell Reinhardt: Enough with the proper rest, time to get ready for war!

      Peace? Pshaw! People typically are bums, anyway, and only war can make them feel worthwhile!

      The ultimate fate of a soldier is that one bullet with their name on it. Otherwise, there's only boredom in between.

      I want a colossus too! Would be nice to drop a few missiles on its dome!

      What's the ironjaw for? The last person asking about it had his head cracked like a walnut, that's what it's for!

      Why don't you give Colossus a feminine name? That way, you will never leave her alone on the battlefield.

      Think I'm ridiculous!? Only God knows who else awaits us in the future. War is constantly around us!

      Never kill someone with a knife when a gun will do. I'll ask Gronru for some armor-piercing rounds later and blow them to hell.

      More training leads to less dying in battles.

      People said bullets could hit anyone. What a pity they always ducked me, ha!

      Nice weather today. Why don't you come on a cross-country training with me?

      No one will treat you fairly and equally in a battle. Use whatever dirty tricks it takes to win! How about I show you some of them?

      Let's see your battle face... What? That's the best you can do? Ha! Such a newbie!

      I heard the rookie camp in the Illumina is regressing from bad to worse. Are the drill instructors doing nothing at all? At this pace, they'll end up being nothing more than live targets in a fight!

      If you're that bored, get some training in so you won't drop the ball at crunch time.

      Soldiers are nothing without war. I definitely do not want to be a parasite that contributes nothing.

      Only war can turn me into a legion commander at my age. Pango, on the other hand, wasn't so lucky. Somebody's bound to take a bullet in a fight, you know.

    • Aurorian Trivia III

      Don't underestimate the Four Angels of Lumopolis. Those lasses fight like tigers. I got to figure out how to neutralize them...

    Harbored Regret

    "Sergeant Hvit! Sergeant Ulv! Hold your breath and dive!" Barton mutters. Now, he is ready to conquer the sea in style, wearing a cooling white overshirt, a striped nautical tee, and a smock perfect for the ever-changing weather on the high seas... as well as his darkened military cap bearing the Illumina insignia. Rather than a relaxing vacation, Barton seems to be out on a military mission on behalf of Illumina.

    Cross Converter (C)

    (B at BT2)

    (S at MBT)

    Overall

    B

    (A at BT2)

    (SS at MBT)

    Advantages

    +At max BT: Preemptive conversion is vital

    +Cross conversion generates a lot of tiles, at minimum

    Disadvantages

    -Awful CD without BT2

    -The actual pattern of cross conversion is awkward for high-damage set-ups without other forms of conversion or some RNG

    Explanation

    Cross converters are radically different based on if you have obtained Max Breakthroughs (MBTs) or not. When not fully maxed, they're clunky (if serviceable) options for large amounts of tile generation, similar to Raphael or Uriel. The BT0 cooldown effectively prevents you from getting to use them more than once on a normal 10-turn level, so even BT2 can be a pretty significant upgrade.

    However, once you MBT them, they are arguably the best units in the game and have a staple slot on basically any team that demands high tile count. While the four-tile converters should carry you through 99% of the game, obtaining MBT Cross Converters should be a long term goal, as they tend to simplify most content.

    Even among other Cross Converters, Barton stands out, thanks to his extremely powerful equipment giving him access to diagonal attacks and a mild damage amp. The result is an all-around must run if you intend to min-max your Water comps.
