Nicholas vs Gavin

[Post New]by eliwin1021 on Sep 12, 09 7:48 AM
What are your opinions on Nicholas and Gavin?

Initially, I chose Gavin over Nicholas, but after finding Ava Oneye and Uthar asked me to teach Nicholas some manners, I thought it would be more important to the game that I did, so I kicked Gavin to the curb. I feel like that might have been kind of a mistake because Gavin has much more powerful magic and I think he would be more useful in battle. I know Nicholas has the lullaby which is useful, but his health spells don't do all that much. I don't know, maybe Gavin just looks better because I chose Nicholas (the grass is always greener).

Why can't we all just get along?!

You can go on the game maker's website and download something so they can stand to be near each other.

I pretty much always play with Nicholas in my party and never with Gavin. You're right in that he generally isn't very useful in battle, but I find he comes in really handy when fighting the snow wolves. His lullaby spell gets them to sleep quite well, and if I recall correctly (just about to reach that stage again now after not having played for a long time) his sunshine spell, which you can buy in Ever After, works well on them too. Without Nicholas, I seriously struggle getting past the wolves!

But Gavin can acquire the North Wind spell, which is one of the most effective attacks in the final battle.

And apparently you can marry him to Ava if you do certain things right.

I tried so very hard and for such a long time to....respect....Nicholas. Really !!!
But after that unfortunate incident with the beggar in Thais, I banished Nicholas to his room and galloped poste haste to woo Gavin back by my side.
Nicholas is assuredly the greatest healer in the land but the boy couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag.

Gavin sounds like the better of the two. where do u find him in the game? I've been playing for a while and got to thais and got nicholas for the eris quest. Do you find gavin later or did i miss something earlier in the game?

He is later in the game. From where you are it is not too far. He is in town that is on a swamp. Don't remember the name of the town but it is full of witches. If you enter the forest on the right of Thais you will encounter two spiders from there go south until you are out in the world. You have to pass through the swamp area to get there.

I've played with both, Nicholas and Gavin ... well, I personally like Nicholas more.
Even Gavin can learn healing spell, he is in not strong enough. If you have Gavin as an active in your party when you face the Snow Queen - he'll do, but when Heptitus came - you will not have a big chance to win because they both use dark magic. Nicholas is using white magic and his spells work pretty good in final fight even when you face Heptitus.

Maybe is right that Nicholas isn't useful in battle, but neither do Gavin. His spells aren't so special and they actually make less demage then Emma's attack.
Nicholas can learn shields spells and this is helpful when you fight Heptitus - he can protect you against dark magic spells and hit the enemy with his Sunshine spell.
If Gavin doesn't know the North Wind spell ... he can't do anything special.

I vote for Nicholas

I just tried to load the goodie from the developer's web site and it didn't work. Since this game was produced a while ago I guess it doesn't support XP.

My question is ..... Is nicholas essential to finish the game as I didn't take him.

Nope, he isn't. You can complete the game with either Gavin or Nicholas, it's just a matter of battle preference: Gavin has more attack options while Nicholas has more healing options.

if you talk to enough villagers in thias with Nicholas in your party then eventually someone will throw something at him and he'll be embarrassed enough to apologize to the beggar and has to buy everyone cheese
And if you go to bog wood talk to Dredel Ava will offer him a present. If you make him accept it then it will now be funny to try to watch him make another insult
