Suicide Burst

Hack of Secret of Mana

Description:

This hack changes the Burst spell so that it kills you to use it, inflicting the same damage to the enemy as it does to you. The more HP you have, the more damage you will do to your target. This appears to be the original intention of the Burst spell, given its animation and what happens to Pumpkin Bombs when they use it on you. This hack could thus be said to perhaps be implementing the Burst spell’s original vision.

To improve the appeal of the spell, the MP cost has also been reduced to zero, the spell ignores defenses, and it will penetrate Wall, making it possible to use against such notable Wall-casting bosses as as Aegagropilon, Mech Rider III, and the Mana Beast. Now you can have a more interesting Mana Beast fight with both Randi and Popoi doing damage, Primm resurrecting Popoi, and Primm and Popoi buffing Randi. Even better when combined with “Harder Final Boss,” “Balance Spell MP Cost,” and/or “Herbal Boost” to lengthen the Mana Beast fight and reduce the cost of Revivifier.

Also included is an alternative version of the hack that will make it so the spell divides the damage amount by 2 so that it won’t kill you, but it will do less damage.

Note: if you use “Balance Spell MP Cost,” you should apply that hack first, then this one after.
