Rue is awesome.

Boss Fight strategies- Just use Rue.

I think she's a little quicker on her feet in the battlefield, all she needs is a taunt button and she'd be perfect.
Iv'e taken down half the bosses in the game by just using her shurikens.

Rarely needed to hit L1 to get away. Most bosses, especially the humankind will come towards you and stop to do a combo when close enough. Perfect for Rue to keep walking backwards and throw some shurikens each time.
Crocell's fireballs are great too , but he's a tad bit slower and his elemental attacks can sometimes work against him.
Rue's shuriken's only depend on how high her attack power is.

Point of this thread -
If you're stuck on a boss, then just use Rue and keep your distance.
I've fought & killed many of the hard bosses with her alone, while my teamates were dead.
Especially handy if you're saving up 700 skill points for each character and you keep getting pwned in boss battles becasue you have no skills updated yet.
You can wittle down just about any boss with Rue. It'll save all your health/revive potions as well.

Rue > whole party.

Also, Celestine > Sephie.
Celestine is faster with healing and attacks. Plus she has big boobies.
Sephie daydreams or something lol, I die more often with her as a healer.

Celestine is better than Zephie for several reasons, such as not being a stupid cunt, having a higher accuracy (same goes for Rue), at least speaking of some of the typical weapon setups in a battle. Anyway, any elemental character can be "win" if you spend 15 SP for his "-lin" ability and spam Crystals. There isn't much of a problem with difficulty in this game, actually...especially because you can always spam Co-Op Techniques at any time if you happen to be stuck.
Zephie is much better for attacking, also when farming her Kan, but the fan doesn't allow healings. I ended up using her only in the Fire-based zones (the canyon, mainly) where Celestine would result worse than her. Celestine is also much cuter, while Zephie is probably the worst character of the game, annoying as hell and worst AI and innate stats. Ugh. Rue deserves staying in the party even just for the assassination skill against non-bosses on her Katana, but mostly because she has a godly accuracy which is key since the point when she joins. It'd be crazy not to keep her.
It's completely another story when speaking of a no-DLC run, where Zephie becomes definitely more useful, even along with Celestine and not in her place.

Well, yeah, but for some reason I don't really like Rue as much.. I really don't know why. And I prefer Celestine over Zephie..

it... irreplaceable."

Thanks to Rajeanero for the excellent signature!
