My idea for One Man Show was to send off low powered lores to continue feeding my "One Man" because he has speed save. I didn't believe that speed save would trigger if the unit absorbed that damage, so I wanted it to be low. giving my speed saver 25/50/75 CT every so often would continue giving him turns. an alternative to just raising his speed with quickening/cheer song. It was just an experiment I thought of trying.
For this reason, I used jobs that had low MA to begin with, and I made them not move just so that they would only spam lores. and then gave the Monk quickening, just to use at the beginning just in case. Looking at how they function, I am almost tempted to try the same thing, but with the monk being a Phoenix blade user, instead. give him massive PA, quickening, and chakra to fuel himself.
It was just a thought that I deemed worth trying.
However, if I do manage to make a working phoenix blade set-up, then it's depending on the results if I scrap the idea or not.
(I don't think this needs to be in a spoiler)
I can see where you were going with this idea. Your monk does do impressive damage on his own. But the problems are that the monk on his own can't really win in a 4 on 1 situation because there's always a good chance that your opponents has ways to recover from a one man beat down despite constant speed saves. Especially if its against a team that hits just as hard like mine you just fought.
Dol tried something similar with speed save back then with the two chemists and squires having low damage lores triggering speed save. Of course that was before speed save was nerfed in arena. And that didn't work because once the units go down unless you got good resurrection power you'll find yourself in a bad spot and you'll just lose in mere seconds. That's what happened her even though it just took longer because of the AI derping around. Plus Genji Armor and Iron Boots do pretty much the same thing except Genji Armor adds HP/MP.
Lore spammers are designed to pretty much keep each other live while heavily damaging the enemy. Like Angelus' SCC team or reinoe's Short Circuit. You can get away with triggering speed save as long as you have the lore spammers being able to keep the pressure on and being able to defend themselves too. Your lancers even with the octagon rods were no threat whatsoever because my Axe team does have ways to get get of frog (as I'm sure most other teams do too) and that because the lores were so weak that auto potion, and any other x save can counter that no problem. And that accomplishes pretty much nothing.
I'm sorry if I come off as a jerk a little bit that its just my insight on your team. Interesting idea but wasn't well executed. I think that also because of the axe's random damage that you didn't really stand much of a chance anyways. Maybe you might want to rework that team so it can be more of a offensive threat. Perhaps getting rid of the ninja and have a second monk with speed save while having the lore spammers with absorb mp may be better for you because honestly man its going to take more than one PA heavy monk to put enemies on the defensive. Hope this helps and maybe next time you'll have a better chance of winning
