    Starting from Makna forest, I use Shulk (controlled), Dunban, and Melia.

    Any suggestions on who I should control out of those?

    Melia, unless you use Dunban for force dazing. Melia's AI tends to just sit there without shooting the elements at the enemies.

    In that case I'll try Melia (controlled), Shulk, Dunban. I need it in this order since Dunban and Shulk do a Topple combo in chain attacks...though usually I have Melia use Bind or Sleep at the end of the combo...

    I went through most of the game without the Monado. Not that many fights require it, even the later mechon filled areas give you an alternative by giving your other characters weapons that can harm mechon and face mechon. Well really, none of the fights require the Monado since you can still topple mechon either through chain attack or forcing it on them through certain character skills.

    Actually there are several Zelda games that don't have the Master Sword. Major ones being Zelda 1 and 2.

    Well not really since in Zelda games you're required to pick up the Master Sword with the only character you can use.

    You can use other characters in here......

    Weird, I've been playing the game all the way through and haven't switched at all, I use Shulk (Controlled), Reyn and Sharla as my main group!

    omg are you just trying to be awkward or are you a bit simple? can you even equip anyone else with the monado?

    and to the guy above, i hadnt changed either and hadnt planned to but had to swap reyn for dunban at the sword valley boss and it helped loads!! havent changed back since..

    I was referring to the Links and the Master Sword, not Shulk and the Monado.

    now im confused

    either way:

    the story is mainly about the monado

    shulk is the only one that can use the monado

    i cant imagine playing with anyone else!

    He doesn't but you haven't even tried playing without the Shulk in your party.
