Maybe, but the hurricane is theoretically a temporary effect. More specifically, it's like a terrain effect in that it can't affect you if you're not within the area it's covering. Considering that, it makes even less sense to use the already-modified rank as a starting point when the use of Wukong's ability alters his baseline stats. I've thought of a perfect workaround to this problem, actually. I was writing a midterm until just now, or else I would have responded earlier. Just need to know if I should use the workaround, though I stand by the argument I made earlier in this post.

Dude, it covers the whole fucking city. You're not going to get away from it. And even if we apply the status effect to Sun Wukong after he divides into two, he'd still have E+ Agility at best (i.e he starts off at A+, division ranks down his speed to B+ or A, the hurricane then ranks it down by three letter ranks, setting it at E+ or D, whichever you prefer).

Moooooo~!
I see what you're getting at Darkside, though I have to disagree. While in the area that is under the effects of Kusanagi (which is the entire city of Archwood and De le Mancha), Wukong's, along with all the other Servant's Agility are reduced to their new 'semi'-permanent ranks.

Since Wukong used his clone thing while under the affects of Kusanagi, him and his clones Agility would go down to E+ Rank because his current base stat is D+. His original stat outside of Kusanagi is A+, and if he used his clone thingy outside of Kusanagi's range, then it would be B+. If he walked inside Kusanagi's range with his clone, then it would be reduced to C+ Rank because his base Agility stat while walking inside of the range of Kusanagi was B+.

And what KSPAM said is pretty much right since that was Kusanagi's original function, though I'm more-or-less ignoring the "+" modifiers to make it a hell of a lot less complex (though it seems to have done the opposite, apparently), even though technically Kusanagi affects all Ranks of Agility equal to, less than, or greater than Yami's, and reduces those greater than hers (including "+" modifiers) by 3 ranks, equal to hers by 1 rank, and those less than hers by a "-", which basically cuts their agility in half.

So, as to avoid further arguments and to make things absolutely clear... and with the permission of the G Ms and everyone else, I'd like to throw out the previous chart, make a proper chart for the stat reduction, and not half-ass it this time.

Would that be alright?

Sometimes, you just gotta do the unexpected to catch the expected unexpected individual who you are expecting.

1) Catapult self into upper atmosphere via Noble Phantasm, be outside of hurricane.
2) ???
3) Profit!

"+" modifiers only temporarily take effect under special conditions. I don't see why they would be considered "above" an unmodified B or C or what-have-you, since they're exactly the same under all other conditions. It makes more sense not to take "+" or "-" into account when calculating any stat changes ever, which is what I've been doing the whole time.

A proper chart or spreadsheet would be nice, however.

Okay. I'm sorry for getting snippy. I've had a long day. But. darksidevoid, it is not okay for you to just blatantly ignore another player's Noble Phantasm like that, especially when it was discussed in full only a page or so ago.

Yes, I know. Do you actually think I would do something like that? Do you think I'm making up justifications on the fly here, or something?

I thought I understood how Kusanagi's ability worked, and I've explained how, namely that it acts like a sort of territory effect, and acts on a baseline that exists independent of its effects. Perhaps I was incorrect, but I've been working under that assumption. If I hadn't been working under that assumption, I wouldn't have moved Wukong to attack, because it would be utterly stupid and suicidal for him to do so.

I can't tell if you're taking issue with that or with my solution to the in-game situation (by which I mean shooting Wukong to the upper atmosphere via his NP). If it's the latter, I don't see why you would take issue with a creative approach to a problem, especially considering that he wouldn't at all be ignoring the effects of Kusanagi after he returned Earthward, and he and everyone else would still be slower than Orochi, which I gather is the whole point of Kusanagi other than wanton destruction of property via hurricane (and for the record, I have absolutely no problem with the fact that it does either of those things).

I'd like to say, regarding Galahad, that I must eat my own words. A quote from Fate/zero:

Gawain who had heroically sacrificed himself, Galahad who had lost his life in the line of duty—what did they think of, in their last moment? Did they leave this world with the same regret and unwillingness? Why was she so certain that that was not true?

"He-llo? Could you say that again? More slowly? In a language I understand? Depending on what you said, I might kick your ass!"

EDIT: And if anyone's wondering why Archer's speaking in Japanese instead of English, it's not because I'm a weaboo. He's just that mad.

Does that mean that Archer has a Japanese accent? Suddenly he's a lot less GAR and a lot more uh...

"AND AZSH AI PRAY, UNRIMITED BRADE WORKSH!!"

So yeah, losing the accent while retaining the language is rather important.

Engrish Archer was badass to me. It sounded like the right mix of awesome and funny.

[up][up][up][up] Dude, Archer's Engrish was a huge part of what made him badass. Do you know anyone else who could say the Unlimited Blade Works chant in a heavy Japanese accent and make it sound badass? Do you?

When I say the UBW chant, I automatically say it in engrish. It doesn't sound right any other way.

Yes, but I'm also waiting on some kind of reaction from Bedivere, Ravana, and possibly Jackie (all KSPAM), as well as a clear answer as to whether I can have Sun Wukong fling himself above the hurricane momentarily by use of his staff.

I told you you could control Jackie now, right? I'm handing her over to you. I have too many characters, so I'm trying to pass off or get rid of some of my smaller role characters.

As for Bedivere... that also has to do with Death Chariot, since he controls Kay. So....

For Valeria, yes since he plays Augustus. On the other hand, with Elias I suppose I'm waiting on Daltar/Robin and Assassin #57 of 108 or whatever number that one happens to be.

Indeed they are, but he's still unmotivated to RP due to him getting a DS and getting punished for faring poorly on his grades.

Sad.... :(
Still around and I am technically waiting for Death Chariot too,but to be honest, with X-Com and Dishonored being released a little lag for a few days suits me just fine.tongue (I will still kick myself into posting in a day or two, even without DC)
