Quote from: Chronosplit on November 17, 2021, 11:17:44 PMTactics Advance had some really cool spells attatched to play around with. They're mostly built for non-mages for some reason, because only a couple of spells actually used the magic stat in a way that mattered. So you can easily make a Paladin setup using Blue Magic for much better support options than White on the same build for example. If you didn't have a beastmaster it was very hard learn them though, so I don't always use them or find reason to build one. I really wish it wasn't locked into humans either, Blue Mage would sure be more useful to a Bangaa than a Bishop.
Quote from: MysticLord on November 18, 2021, 07:54:53 PMIn that case, shouldn't Beastmaster belong to the Bangaa too? Makes more sense there, since Nu Mou Beastmaster is useless against non-monsters. At least on a Bangaa you can treat it like a warrior class.
Quote from: FAST6191 on November 20, 2021, 09:44:30 PMI can certainly see the potential there (and it is not like we have not seen a thousand hacks play with such systems for similar reasons) but how you would avoid it being overpowered whilst also making people want to play it vs having specialists, or everybody having similar powers by one means or another, I don't know.
Quote from: PowerPanda on November 21, 2021, 12:44:48 AMFor your suggested changes to the other mage classes, you should check out my patch "Final Fantasy Tactics: Emergence". I am pretty happy with how I was able to handle the White (healing), Black (attacking), Green (debuffs), Purple (buffs) Magicks, by focusing on specializing those classes. I turned the Squires into Red Mages (a little of everything), and the Orators into a class that could directly affect Faith/Brave/PA/MA/SP.
Quote from: PowerPanda on November 21, 2021, 12:44:48 AMI REALLY tried to create a Blue Mage. Originally, that's how I redesigned Luso's special class. Ultimately though, the game system doesn't support it. In order to make an effective Blue Mage in the Tactics engine, you need to block off access to nearly all equipment. There is only one character who is set up for this, and that is Reis. She has to be set up like this, because she uses the Dragon Breath abilities. So, in lieu of a true Blue Mage, I was able to make Reis learn the Hydra's "Tri" abilities on contact.

Quote from: Chronosplit on November 22, 2021, 10:29:42 AMTechnically Kirby does it in the Quina fashion. That's the only one I can think of. Brave Fencer Musashi Does a similar thing to that.
