I hate the fact that I can’t use Flashing Blade on my Brave Eliwood, and I can’t take my Heavy Blade seal off my Tibarn, so now imma rant lol.
IMHO? Flashing Blade is pretty dang optionless.
Flashing Blade is only usable by Infantry and Armors.
Most Armor units are too slow to make use of it (only characters that come to mind are Valentines Ike, Black Knight and Zelgius, and they are all swords)
All of the speediest infantry units are sword units. There are some speedy axe/lance infantry units, like Hilda and Summer Ylgr (who was specifically made for it mind you, because she comes with it), but the point is here that there aren’t nearly as many OPTIONS for Flashing Blade as there are for Heavy Blade.
There are speedy magic infantry units as well, but let’s admit it: the best use of Flashing Blade/Heavy Blade is Galeforce. If the foe can’t strike back (which is the case for most magic users), the seal/skill isn’t enough to get enough cool down for Galeforce to work.
All I’m trying to say is if Flashing Blade could work with all movement types, I really don’t think the game would be that much more broken, and there’d be a lot more options as to what builds we could create.
I’ve probably forgotten a lot of things in this opinion, but what do you all think?
