I imagine this topic has been gone over several times but I could not find a topic about it recently.

I have played JA2 many times through, but i have never waited around for more than about 150 days.

I have just got the $900,000,000 savegame and would like to just sit my selected mercs somewhere and whore all their stats up to 85. Preferably i would like to do it before i took any sectors other than the first.

I am also aware that certain mercs have the teaching stat, but no one that would be really useful for skills like agility. I would also prefer Enrico not to sack me due to lack of action.

Basically, do you have any suggestions for the best sector to take my mercs to, or the best techniques to get their stats higher fast?

Cheers
JD

Mmm,...whoring?
Definitely San Mona,C5!
Make sure the team's cost per day is lower than 20,000/day and you don't need the extra cash.15,000 from Tony and 15,000 from Daren (fighting) provide the financing.
The IMP and rebels can organize raids around the town,fighting patrols every 2-3 days.

Got a save to prove it,with a team consisting of Magic,Ice,Blood,Wolf,Fox,Grizzly,Lynx,Cougar,Maddog,Reaper,Shadow, Dr.DREAD(the IMP char) with all the stats above 85.All rebels too.
Every skill available.40 days of contract for the AIM members.
1.03 version used,expert/sci-fi/tons of guns/M9 settings.
Mail me,I might send it to you this week.

Agility for Wolf,Grizzly,Cougar,Lynx and rebels was raised to 85 dancing around a crepitus larva in the underground of Tixa.Health & strength using the (overloaded)cancel move trick.Dexterity was the hardest one to train,for the mercs that don't punch cows.
Student without trainer for the rest of the stats...
Explosives not trained!

Uhhh... AFAIK, Len can't learn *anything* in-country. At all. I understand it's written into his character information as his 'quirk'. I guess it's a matter of 'old dogs/new tricks'.... :angel:

You can use the editor to change Len so he can gain points , thats what i do . But you'd have to start the game over again .

Very funny Azazel ...

Len should be able to learn , that and the zero stats are the only thing that ever bothered me in the game .

Hey,don't blow on me,mister...
Agreed about the zero stats and the old corporal.
But this topic is about maximising all stats,and I cannot imagine anything more brutal than using the editors to fall in the other extreme,like in that *elite squad* save.

Nah, for me one of the most satisfying things about JA2 is watching the stats increase. Also, and i know this may seem odd, in the savegame i am using the custom IMP has 100 in every stat... yet he still doesn't seem to shoot as well as someone like scope.

I always think that about 100 stats.

What I enjoy doing nowadays, is hiring mercinaries\getting an IMP. And liberating all the towns as fast as I can.

I really wonder why I didn't start of playing the game that way in the first place :\

Even someone with 50 wisdom and marksmanship can do pretty well, if you use them right.

My experience levels and marksmanship have been improving suprisingly fast.

Oh. and as strange as it may sound, you only really need one medic, mechanic\bomb dude. And a lot of the mechanics and bomb dudes can shoot pretty well from the start.

But, most importantly of all, choose characters that you like.

Some other tread (I couldn't find) mentioned H-13 (Alma - Conrad) gives a bonus to marksmanship training trainer-student.
