Galeforce heaven right here
Maybe the special has to deal damage in order to apply, then?
Fuuuuuuuuuuu… Didn’t think about that. I intended it to only apply to damaging specials. I’ll try to adjust wording.
well shit now it sucks
Just add “If special activates before or during combat.”, I think.
Flat damage specials would probably appreciate this the most. Especially Blue Flame. But not sure of the maths to see if it’s entirely worth it.
That’s usually the wording for special spiral type effects where the special activating is what causes the effect and not how it activates. Like when Ares first came out I thought he got CD -2 after every combat regardless of if his special activate during that combat.
Is this a weapon effect? An a, b, c or s slot?
Is it a start of turn 1 effect? A constant effect like slaying weapons?
1 charge Black Luna seems pretty good to me
I thought of it as a Prf effect but knowing IS it would show up as a C slot or something eventually
Blue flame would do 18 damage when adjacent
18 damage is around how much you can get from Moonbow or Glimmer or a spd based special, in fact slightly more
Except it has 1 CD instead of 2
1 CD special dealing 18ish damage? Another Larcei!
Ok I think Blue Flame would be the winner here
Though I’m sure Bonfire or Iceberg or Luna would be great
2 minus CD is imo too strong, you’re getting a 1 CD effect that adds 18 damage
It would be great on more supportive heroes though, who lack sufficient offenses and defenses.
Tbh it would be good on anyone, essentially turning them into Larcei
If it was a prf that’s still great though a bit more limiting.
You could use Times Pulse to precharge a Blue Flame every turn
You could use Ignis, Glacies or Astra, and use SS to have it every combat
Probably not a c slot
If it was a c slot imagine having baby Caeda or Y!Marth or someone with SS and having a constant Astra, or someone like Ares with a constant Ignis with vantage
Good point, I just said C bc it’s kind of like TP. Maybe A to prevent a DC combo? Or B to prevent a Vantage combo?
If it were a b slot there’d be no point because SS is a b slot
If it were an a slot that would maybe be ok
Obviously it would be best as a prf weapon
Because otherwise BK could do Brave Sword+Black Luna+new a slot and just kill everything on initiation, maybe chuck a Vantage or something on there or I dunno
At least Blue Flame is a very rare offensive skill, plus it has the requirement of staying adjacent to at least 1 ally to proc at full power (adjacency debuffs could help mitigate it somewhat). But yeah, 18 flat damage added onto each attack on potentially every attack is too much. Agreed, -2 CD is too free.
Agreed that it would be nice and at least somewhat balanced as an A slot, but it’s probably best as a Prf effect. As an inheritable skill in some way, it would be the stuff of nightmares to come. Unless it had an additional condition like “if unit’s Atk < foe’s Atk - 5” to limit who could make effective use of it.
As an a slot it still comes with a myriad of problems
Imagine Fir with her prf, Wrath, and this special
+20 flat damage on Glacies which already hits way too hard, and precharged at the start of every turn
I think 2CD is just too much to reduce by.
1 CD would just be worse Times Pulse however
still a cool idea tho
