Last I checked, Rainbow Staff isn't all elements. I thought that was removed a long time ago, unless FFM forgot to change that in the master guide?

11/13 changes (last update for a while)

- Retired: Man Mode Strats
- All Top Priority Teams moved to active status.
- All other teams are still 1.38 and are inactive until I decide to update them or otherwise.

Active Teams: 8
Total Team Count: 15

TOP PRIORITY - (Brand new teams, updated teams & teams I would REALLY like to see in action. Would appreciate that these teams get first dibs over my active teams please.)

None right now. I'm taking a break from Arena.

ACTIVE TEAMS (Teams that don't necessarily need battles, but are good to go regardless. Also, good to go for any request matches.)

INACTIVE TEAMS (Teams under heavy reconstruction, under hiatus, or on the verge of being scrapped completely. Do not use any of these teams in any matches or requested matches please.)

No way. Seeing how both Chaos Blade and Gold Staff do the same thing, and give 20% evade, I highly doubt it. In fact, Chaos Blade is better than Gastrophetes and it's still barely being used (especially with Save The Queen & Ragnarok's recent buffs). I doubt giving Gastrophetes 100% cancel positive statii would make it better than it is currently; being both forced 2-H and having 0% evade isn't worth it.

Thanks, TrueLight for the match.

By the way, if anyone doesn't mind, could my Futuristic Frannies get a match or two? Them and perhaps Talk Dirty to Me.

I just remembering surprised that Otabo's current version of Divas includes two male units, though they're effective, so I suppose I can't argue (much) with that false advertising.

Mid-week matches. Also, moves get shown.

FFT Arena 1.39c - The Damned (Flurry of the Dancing Flames v2) vs. Silenkaster (Protect The Queen)

FFT Arena 1.39c - Barren (Thunder Absorb) vs. Andante49 (Try Outs)

Not enjoying innocent being 100%, but I'm not hating it. I get to bring back my anti caster team FFEleven probably thanks to it.

Well, it could've been worse if 1.38 Flash Hat was still around. It would have been so easy to set up double innocent ninjitsu damage. Granted it was possible to pull off back then with Gokuu Rod, it was a lot harder, and most of the time, not worth it. Anyway, IMO, I feel that Atheist Bow's innocent proc is more suited to shut down mages/faith reliant units more so than for ninjitsu purposes, but yeah.

Probably Cursed Ring + Reflect Mail most likely. It's a huge gamble now, though.

See, IMO, Cursed Ring typically does better on a non-armor unit, though (even though armored units can do well with it too, with a good setup/team). The thing with 1.38 Flash Hat was that it was useful not only because of the Innocent, but because non-armored units could wear it without needing to sacrifice their support slot or their armor slot, and it was possible to cover more weaknesses that Cursed Ring brought (this is why no one ran Reflect Mail + Cursed Ring back then, either). Back then, a popular setup was Flash Hat + Black Costume + Cursed Ring or, Flash Hat + Gold Armor + Cursed Ring (sometimes Flame Shield/Crystal Shield was added, or Genji Shield to prevent Consecration, but Consecration is nowhere near as common as Raise 2 is, so an undead unit could get away with not having dead protection, but that's beside the point). Now if you're a non-armored unit, you'd have to sacrifice your support slot AND your armor slot (or run a pally/lancer/samurai), to protect him/her from one spell, which means that it's harder to cover other weaknesses, meaning you're more vulnerable. Unless you have other units on your team that can quickly put down the Raise 2 caster(s), status him/her or at least apply enough pressure to force him/her into using Raise 2 on its own allies, it's really not that great, and now that you're not guaranteed to revive at 0 count 100 CT, it's even harder to use and take advantage of. I mean, it's still a good item if used right, but it's now more of a gamble than it was before - at least for non-armored units. Besides, now that Dispel Magic got buffed, it's really good now and I imagine that it will become used more. Dispel Magic > Reflect all day long since Dispel Magic itself can't be reflected, meaning Reflect Mail becomes a +135 HP piece of garbage - especially if Dispel is used early in a match, and there is no other way to reapply reflect aside from Nameless Song, which is also a garbage skill due to how the AI uses it.

But anyway, Raise 2 is only the most common threat for undeads. So many teams are running Raise 2. Fire damage (if non-armored and can't use a shield) is still is a problem for them, even now more than before because of what I mentioned earlier. Seal Evil can be problematic as well, but at least there are ways around petrify.

Can Mimes equip bags?

Nope. They can equip everything except shields and weapons. But, they can still use weapons and shields if they have an 'Equip X' support.

Always: Reraise is an unworkable concept. It might be indeed better with negative speed, but you still end up with an unkill-able aggro unit that can Balance the shit out of you.
17 WP + dispel vs an effective 26 WP + 1 PA/Move
I don't think it really could ever be as bad as Katar Thieves, Always: Protect or not. The combination of extreme damage and move was what made Katar so good.

Agreed. Definetly not. Even if Two Hands worked with KSwords, the damage still wouldn't come close to the damage of Katar thieves. Though, I'm willing to bet now that Slasher can be dual wielded, dual Slasher geos/pallies or maybe even ninjas will become a thing. Probably going to do as much, if not more than Katar thieves now.

Speaking of Balance, now that Phoenix Blade's been reworked, and average HP totals have gone up overall, I wonder if Balance would see even more use now, at least on armored units. Hmm.

Maybe, maybe not. Depends on when I get home from work. If it's not too late, I might drop by.

Oh yes, that reminds me: Is something going to be done to bags this time around?

1.39 is actually going to be a thing after all!? Excellent.

Also, can't wait to see what the new Scholar is going to be like, and what they're capable of.

Because there was no JP cap for this specific tournament.
