QuoteIt appears to do the same amount of damage as Cutlass Fury, but it only requires 2 SP
Quote from: Maeson on November 01, 2016, 06:54:41 AMas you progress through the game, Aika's fire super moves don't raise in power as much as Pyri spells, meaning that even if Alpha Storm it's strong for the beginning of the game, latter abilities become more of a "cheap" (MP and SP wise) alternative to fire magic, but also less powerful (and in case of the last Pyri spell, much less powerful). It's a perk that only she has.
Quote from: Maeson on November 01, 2016, 06:54:41 AMAlso, I hope you tried different magic types, as it's weak to Purple Magic (In every test playthrough I did, I always ended with Cristales, Purple Magic Level 2, with at least one character), or tried to Poison him, as it makes some damage over time to him if the condition sticks.
QuoteAbout the super moves
QuoteActually, I had barely switched to purple since the readme said to focus on building up one color before switching. I guess I misinterpreted what you were trying to say.
QuoteAbout the weaknesses
QuoteP.S. So far, aside from the Sentinel battle, I haven't encountered any combat issues, so I guess that means you did a good job. Congrats!
Quote from: Maeson on November 03, 2016, 04:51:20 AMSome people give the berries equally, others force-feed them to a single character to get everything early, others don't even use them...For example, you got Lambda Burst a bit earlier than I did in my test playthroughs.
Quote from: Maeson on November 03, 2016, 04:51:20 AMIf you wonder about what weaknesses and resistances each color has, you have a lot, (and I mean a lot, the time I spent writing things into that .txt is ridiculous, it very well could be an instruction manual) of info in the readme. There's a chart about how each element affects the others, in the magic list part.
Quote from: Maeson on November 03, 2016, 04:51:20 AMSorry for such a long post.
Quote from: Maeson on November 03, 2016, 04:51:20 AMOkay, I tested a bit the fire spells vs aika's moves and I feel like I'll fine tune the moves by a bit. I'll make the patch as soon as I can. Done. Again, both PAL and NTSC patches are here, and will be updated in the hacks page.
Quote from: Maeson on November 03, 2016, 04:51:20 AMI hope is the last thing I need to touch.
QuoteMy strategy is to compare the descriptions and pick which one I think is better (until I reach the ones that require an extra berry). Example:"Attack all enemies, cost 10 SP""Attack all enemies, cost 3 SP"I think I'll take the one that costs 3 SP.I will say: I think I got lucky by getting one or two Moonberries from random encounters, and I admit that can be tough to balance.
QuoteThings like that make me wish the game had a better way of conveying what color the enemies are instead of just the color of the border of their mugshot when selecting a target (honestly, that detail is so small that I didn't notice it until I looked up images just now to see if I missed anything). Actually, now that I think about it, is that what the Pirate's Isle kid says if you find him in hide and seek (that the enemy's element is its picture frame)? I skipped that part, but if that's true, that's certainly a well-guarded secret! I should have an easier time now that I know what to look for.
QuoteI will say, you're very timely at getting these updates out; it almost makes me wish I kept a backup of my save so I could re-test the Sentinel fight with the new stats (after all, it may need a bit more work now that one of the only attacks that can harm it is weaker).
QuoteIf I'm as early into the game as you say I am...well, don't hold your breath.
Quote from: Maeson on November 10, 2016, 02:05:05 PMBut on the other hand, when you're the first person that tells me this, It could be something else.
QuoteFor the Rockwyrm, Aika had protection against stone, and I'm pretty sure someone had the flame mantle equipped (it was probably Fina because I was trying to give her more defense to compensate for her low level and HP, but it was still really easy for her to get killed if she didn't defend practically every turn, which is my main complaint about that part).
QuoteAbout Sinistra and Destra
QuoteAs a veteran of the SMBX community, I can assure you that most people don't bring up their issues directly to the creators, choosing instead either to keep it to themselves or complain about it elsewhere (like a let's play thread of the episode on a different forum). Plus, this patch is only a few months old; I doubt many other people have played it blind yet.
QuoteNow it's my turn to ask you:Who did you get to playtest your patch? Did anyone play it blind, or did they all have prior experience with Skies of Arcadia and have some idea of what to expect?
QuoteThe readme says that this was also meant for people who haven't played the game before, but your response implies that I was supposed to know to defend specifically against red and purple attacks ahead of time.
Quote from: Maeson on November 12, 2016, 05:27:05 AMwhat equipment do you have.
Quote from: Maeson on November 12, 2016, 05:27:05 AMand he died twice on this fight
Quote from: Maeson on November 12, 2016, 05:27:05 AMI know what you're trying to say, and you have a point there, but you also have to think that in the original game things go the same way. There's no warning that the bosses are going to be like this, unlike other places, and there's not much equipment in the original game that could protect you from Red and Purple attacks at that point.
Quote from: Maeson on November 12, 2016, 05:27:05 AMSo here are the changes in this patch. It's not final, I need you to try it out and tell me your experience first before I set things in stone:https://www.dropbox.com/s/sizu74sftda5bmi/Skies%20of%20Arcadia%20Legends%20Maeson%201%2C43%20Universal.rar?dl=0Fina gets more HP by leveling up.Rockwyrm's Volcanic Blast has been weakened a bit.Explode, Tundra Blast and Death Waltz had their power reduced too.The Caravan Armor offers both Purple and Red protection, and it can be purchased in Nasrad.Because this is just to try, I didn't make a PAL version of the patch (Which takes more time to make than the US version).Please, patch your game and tell me how it goes.
QuoteMy armor is De Loco Mail for Vyse, Gilder's Mail for Gilder, and Maiden's Armor for Aika and Fina.
QuoteI understand that as well, but didn't you say that the original game was a bit too easy, and that magic was weaker than normal attacks? Their normal attacks take around 400 damage, so if Tundra Blast and Explode took even less than that, I could see myself also thinking that the game was a bit too easy.
QuoteDang, I should've learned from the whole Sentinel debacle and kept a backup of my save at the Temple of Pyrynn.As for Sinistra and Destra, I say that's perfect; I could actually use Fina without risking her getting murdered each turn. The only thing I'm not entirely sure about is that increasing the HP Fina gets from leveling up might compound and make the boss easier than intended (I can't exactly test the new level-up system without starting a new game).
QuoteIn a final bit of irony, when I won, Gilder said "I wish they were all that easy!"

Quote from: Maeson on November 17, 2016, 03:30:49 AM...But, you're not entirelly "underpowered". As the game implies, The Auriga has a lot of physical defense.
Quote from: Maeson on November 17, 2016, 03:30:49 AMCan you tell me how much Attack (Power+weapon power) do Vyse and Enrique have?
Quote290 for Vyse, 246 for Enrique. Also, Dream Cutlass is only 10 points stronger than the Rapier, and Enrique needs 1000 EXP less than Vyse to reach the next level. I'm currently at Yafutoma.
QuoteEDIT: Why are Riselem Crystals less expensive than Sacrilege Sacrulen Crystals? Shouldn't it be the other way around since Riselem Crystals will also revive the ally?
