How to Recruit Welch in Star Ocean: The Second Story R
Welch actually wasn’t in the original game; she was added in the PSP version, Second Evolution. She’s quite easy to get as well. Just complete the Armory Contest and perform a Private Action in Laceur. Go towards the bridge in town that leads to the castle, and you’ll get an event where she introduces herself. Here, you can accept or deny her request to join you. However, if you progress much further in the story without doing this, she will become unavailable to recruit.
