Hopefully once winter break starts... Spare time and energy has been spent hanging out with friends and Card Hunter, hence my low activity here =x
but yes I have at least one idea for a team! part of me thinks that wanting to record everything is also a slight demotivator cause it means I can't work on a team at like 2 am when I have trouble falling asleep hahaha
We've had Always: Reflect items before, and yeah, dead units would still have Reflect over their corpses. I think FFM made those items Initial: Reflect so people could Raise/Raise 2 those units. Would feel bad losing cause you didn't know about that little interaction =P
Blood Sword will not drain off Kagesougi. 99%+ certain about this. Also fairly certain it won't drain off Jump, but I've never seen that before, so... guess I shouldn't say anything XD. Someone should test!
Reraise + Undead unit = unit will never get up once KO'd.
Dude, teams with Phoenix Blade had terrible winrates. Especially if they had two Phoenix Blade users on the same time, cause then that team only effectively has three units. Enemy team just needs to beat down the non-Phoenix Blade users and they basically win. Due to Always: Slow, the non-Phoenix Blade users will charge ahead into the waiting arms of the enemy team. Quickening doesn't do anything for Phoenix Blade users cause it takes two uses of Quickening to get 1 point of speed, and because they're Always: Slow, it takes forever for them to even get two turns. And by then, the AI will probably prioritize something else (like attacking enemy units in range) rather than Quickening. Phoenix Blade's drawback is very real, and very tough to build around.
Old Phoenix Blade was fine. Winrates of teams with Phoenix Blade was abysmal. I think it's a lot more interesting than the current version.
Quickening is also probably fine. If a unit is actually spamming it, that team is already winning to begin with (ex. Wiz's team - against teams that could actually compete with it, the thieves were either using items or attacking. They used Quickening a lot when either 1. against teams that couldn't threaten them, or 2. if against a competent team, the enemy team was berserked/blinded/poisoned/dead. In other words, when Wiz had won). Most units only get 1-2 uses out of Quickening before other priorities show up.

The 3 spellgunners all had kaiser plate, MAUP, pilgrimage. 2 of them had punch art secondary with the same two skills (stigma magic and revive) Aside from zotis' summoner, all other units with DO secondary had masamune I was the only player in top 8 to not have someone with time magic or short charge Half of the armor was worn by units with equip armor (in other words, abysmal representation from the armored classes, although I guess there's only like 3 of them anyway so it's not actually that surprising) Basically everyone used the same secondaries (doku with lore and reinoe with basic skill are the exceptions) To no one's surprise, everyone had a unit with move-hp up and move-mp up Esuna was on everyone's team! Maybe not that surprising either. The most commonly used weapon was H Bag! Units with white magic secondary were either Time Mages (4) or Oracles (2) The two priests both had time magic secondary The 5 thieves all had quickening, steal heart, and steal accessory. all units with steal had quickening and steal heart (sorry steal accessory!) The archers all agreed that arm aim and seal evil were a must Only 2 of the 6 item users had ether. poor ether The wizard isn't even used for damage, just frog The Damned is probably going to say something like "well, good to see ____ (chameleon robe? who knows) was used, dunno why it isn't used more" and "not as much quickening/cursed ring/2H katar thieves/kagesougi ninjas/spellguns as i expected" find your own!
