Muramasa: What if it was PAx9 and had more vertical going for it, since Attack's vertical is only 2?

I don't think even 9*PA would make much difference seeing how most two-handed weapons have at least 16 effective WP. Extra vertical would be nice, but then the skill would be very situational.

Murasame: I hope that (MA+PA/2)*X is at least a step in the right direction. Originally, it was *12, not *13.

Let's see. Currently Murasame is MA*10 and cannot be boosted with MAtk UP (i.e., its output value is immutable). Turning it into (MA+PA/2)*10 would add a flat 5*PA. Going from there to (MA+PA/2)*12 would be equivalent to first buffing the current Murasame to MA*12, then adding a flat 6*PA on top of that. I'm sure you can see by now how strong of a buff that is.

How about we start with XA = (MA+PA)/2 as a guide? Most classes have somewhere around 7 XA. The top scorers are the Dancerbard (10) and Monk, Geomancer, Samurai, and Scholar (9). To uphold the healing "floor" (e.g., 110 healing by an 11 MA female samurai (famurai?)) the formula XA*(11~12) would be appropriate. To uphold the healing "ceiling" (e.g., 180 healing by a MA-stacked Geomancer), the formula XA*14 would be appropriate. Upholding the floor knocks down the ceiling, and upholding the ceiling lifts up the floor.

Next, let's consider XA = (MA+PA/2) as originally suggested. Now the average XA is around 12~13, and the top scorers are the Bard (16), female Samurai and Scholar (14.5), and Dancer (14). The appropriate formula is then around XA*8 (floor and ceiling).

Counter Comet: I originally thought 75 would be okay. How about 80?

80 is better than 70!

*Cone AoE stuff*

The cone AoE feels like something I would see in Disgaea. I am eager to listen to the possibilities this AoE hack would bring. It feels a little thematically inconsistent on Draw Out, but definitely neat on Punch Art.

**Spellbooks**Finally, let me close with a few formal spellbook suggestions. As a common theme, every book is imbued with an element.

**Omnilex**: 14 WP, 3 Range, Cast Fire 2 [Dmg_F(WP*12)]

**Heptameron**: 13 WP, 3 Range, Cast Ice 2 [Dmg_F(WP*13)]

**Picatrix**: 12 WP, 3 Range, Cast Bolt 2 [Dmg_F(WP*14)]

**Necronomicon**: 14 WP, 3 Range, Cast Bio 3 [Dmg_F(WP*11)]

The book colors are coordinated with the spell elements (i.e., Omnilex is red, Heptameron is blue, Picatrix is yellow, and Necronomicon is an ominous green). These books would replace the current ones.
