Not enough of an impact.

Reviewed By: Chicken Knife on 22 Oct 2021

I’ve played with the INT and LCK fixes applied until near the end, and I feel somewhat disappointed with how minimal the impact of the changes are.

I’ve been a heavy player of Symphony, and I had just completed Bloodstained prior to playing Aria with this hack applied. In those games, whenever I am in the end portion of the game and am able to achieve significant INT and LCK stats, I always feel a distinct difference being made because of those stats. Especially with LCK, where I revisit initial areas, and suddenly enemies are dropping items like crazy. Aria has never worked that way, and I was truly hoping that this patch would achieve a level of parity with other similar titles in the series, but I really can barely notice any difference in drops from when I started the game with 8 LCK or so.

Red souls still feel vastly underpowered in the late game, and major increases in INT are only responsible for a few extra points of damage from those soul powers.

I get the sense that the author may have tried to be very careful to not alter the game too much, but I say that they need to go a fair amount further, or at least provide a less conservative alternative.
