Rage is good, in the effect the sacred turns red right? that would make sense.

I think "Bellow" is fitting for replacing Gather Power. It means "to roar in the manner of a bull."

Sword Skills...

Okay soooo there are sooooo many of these sword required skills its crazy... Now that zodiac has designed an ability requirement hack I was considering making some of them work with more than just swords.

The following will all include Swords, Knight Swords, Katanas, and Ninja Blades:

Holy Sword (5 skills) + ???
Dark Sword (4 skills) + Axe
Mighty Sword (4 skills) + Spear
Cross Sword (3 Skills) +  Dagger

---Spellblades---
Destroy Sword (5 skills) + Rod, Staff
Fearblade (4 Skills) + Rod, Staff
-------------------

---In additon to this, these skills will require specific weapons excluding swords---

Battle Skill - All short range weapons + Guns
Punch Art - Bare Hands
Nibleung (3 Skills) - Spear Only
Assassination (6 Skills) - Gun & Crossbow only
Gun Arm (4 Skills) - Bare Hands

---Single Skill- (these don't display a weapon strike)
Ground Hit [Gin] - Mace
Cyclonic [Zozma] - Axe
Incinerate [Lavian] - Ninja Blade
Evercure [Deis] - Harp
Gigaflare [Monica] - Spear
-----------------

So, will all the skills be the same or there'll be some alterations?

Zozma

they are pretty much the same, however they allow the user more options as well as limit certain skills: for example, Mustadeo's "Blast" skill can only be used with guns
Wiegraf: Draw your sword Ramza!
Ramza: But im a monk!!

jimmyjw88

Wait, isn't that's what it has been all the while? Can blast be use by other weapons? Sorry because I don't know.

It's that various abilities can only be used by certain weapons. Blast would be Gun exclusive. Likewise, you could have something like "Vorpal Thrust", which would be Spear only.

It's about making abilities have more options of limited equipment than just swords. It's like how Meliadoul could equip spears and crossbows, but that disabled her sword skills. This is allowing units to be specialized, and gives the "Equip _______" a purpose.

QuoteNibleung (3 Skills) - Spear Only

I dunno if it is typo or not, but it should be Nibelung if you are aiming for VP reference. You want to use Lenneth?! :D

I also were thinking about Barret. Will he use guns, or will he have like two exclusive weapons only for him that will enable his skills?

Zozma

I mispelled nibel yes, it is correct in the game however.

And I may use Lenneth as a DD random special if she is ever completed, however, I already have a story character with that job "Monica" who appears in 2 scenes in chapter 1 and then a battle in chapter 3 and chapter 4. I am very interested in that Sprite being completed, I do need a powerful DD miniboss random so she would be great since i already have a valk job in my game.

"Vorpal Thrust" i like that, i think i just got a name for my 3rd skill of hers

Nibelung Skillset:
Vorpal Thrust (ch3&4)
Thunder Thrust (ch3&4)
Triple Thrust  (ch4)
Thunder Soul (ch3&4)
Thunder (ch3)
Thundara (ch3&4)
Thundaga (ch4)
Thunderstorm (Thundaja) (ch4)
Gigaflare (ch4)

(note: Rubber Boots are are rare item like most accessories and you are likely to have 1 at most by this point in the game. Don't think for a secont that your going to get off easy when you duel Wiggy either! )
