Bonus items from Versus for the mobile game require PS+ for verification.

I wonder if there'll be any similar hoop to jump through for the teased PC port.

Aliza & Stan plus Tabina for Premium Gala

at this point, Reinhardtzar not having a Grand is just really sad

Tabina seems like she's the new primary Fire debuffer with the Obvious Rule Patch of not being as easily spammable as Yurius was

I want the Indian waifu, damn.

People kinda expected this, right? What I think most didn't expect is that Stan x Aliza is a dual unit. Stan Fans expected him to finally have a solo SSR.

Yeah tbh I'm really annoyed with how they gave Aliza the same goddamn outfit for the dual unit and couldn't be bothered to change it in any way from the free event costume

It's what really makes it stand out as especially lazy

Also, which Tales game is Yuri from, and more importantly can I get it on Steam? I like the cut of his jib.

As that one Grand Blues comic points out (with Siero bribing Sarasa with cake), don't fear the one who can cleave the sky in half; fear the one who knows how to aim her.

So I read What Makes The Sky Blue I and II, and, well:

Okay, but seriously, I really liked ir, Sandalphon is a great character, deep and tragic and his arc shows a lot of potential and his relationship with Lyria is just adorable.

And Belial is my favorite character, now, but you already knew that.

As an aside, I love how flexible Lyria is as a support, I don't think I'm ever taking her out of my team.

Fire Proving Grounds 2 in which Levi AES, Dark Opus, and Lily's FLB make a significant difference compared to last time

I am so so glad there's nothing like the wasps from the last one because they were unequivocally the most unpleasant boss

I think the Magma Golem has the equivalent of Dimensional Cleave but I had Gabriel's dmg cut the one time it actually procced so lol. thank god for Vane's ultra buff otherwise that 60% dmg cut would've been a bigger slog than it already was.

Turns out Amatsumaula's RNG buff dispel is super cheesable by stacking Cucuroux's special dodge onto Lancelot's dodge kit and putting Foxflame on top of judicious amounts of blind so he can never actually hit anyone.

I thought Marduk was pretty unimpressive but then Genesis happened and welp I have to give kudos to Cygames for at least having the dignity of completely resetting Marduk as well.

not going to do Proud+ yet because I want to know if there's any significant leap in difficulty

so I went and beat Proving Grounds Proud+

Sethlans is just the same, I don't think they actually changed anything big

So apparently Marduk's damage being a wet noodle in lower difficulties was actually a ploy because it was easily the most annoying boss out of the three. Tupsimati and Nevil were both super frustrating to deal with and I actually ended up using Absorption to mitigate for that.

Also I completely forgot Lady Katapillar's passives existed so my entire strat turned into babysitting her to get to the second phase and being confused at why she kept dying so soon. Anne and Aquors Second-Years ended being incredibly clutch to the fight as the Armor + Fire DMG reduction was just enough to prevent their deaths and whittle down that final 3%. Lineup was Chaos Ruler/S!Diantha/Anne/Lady Katapillar/Vane/Aquors Second-Years.

Ghandagoza was basically the nice wind down after Marduk, my only grievance was it felt like they were punishing you for not exactly preparing a Dispel in advance for the first turn to do a perfect play with getting around his buffs if you used a prior party. Luckily Aglovale got 2-turn Coldcages every time he cast them during my third attempt to stall Ghandagoza so I'm not quite as vitriolic as I could've been. Lineup was Warlock/Lily/Aglovale/S!Europa.

So Row IV classes only have one skill each, does that mean you can pick more than one subskill?

Row IV and EX II classes can have two unrelated subskills but the last skill slot has to be an Extended Mastery Skill.

Late Answer - Yuri Lowell is from Tales of Vesperia, available now for all consoles and PC.

Re Lyria - She might seem like very good utility now, but once you start doing harder content she becomes a liability and will tank your damage since she doesn't normal attack. Still very good for 1 turn strats though.

EX 2 and T4 classes - Like [up] you can equip whatever 2 subskills you want + one extended mastery skill(from any class in the line, i.e. Chaser from Hermit on Warlock counts), or for certain classes like Glorybringer, base skills count. Once you get used to the flexibility of T4 and Ex 2 classes you'll wonder how you ever played without the subskill options.

I bought the Graphic Archives V yesterday so I just wanted to jot down some quick notes on things I found interesting (got Romeo and the Levin Sisters from the SSR character tickets that came with them):

  • There's a lot less rough drafts for this batch probably because a lot of them were already established characters
  • Zooey with TWO guns was a thing we were robbed
  • Yurius doesn't have a base artwork indicating that they were always planning on doing something with him Promoted to Playable
  • Sandalphon's second artwork drafts look way cooler than the scream we got
  • Teena had only one non-Boobs-and-Butt Pose for her Valentine's version first art drafts which is honestly pretty sad
  • UPSIDE-DOWN NICHOLAS, it looks dumb and I love it
  • Barawa's SR version had an originally more melancholy second art where he's holding a bouquet from or for Chat Noir? and a smoking gun in the rain, makes me wonder what they originally had planned story-wise
  • One of Rosetta's second art drafts for her summer version was playing volleyball with Io and Katalina
  • Lancelot and Vane's second artwork was originally proposed to have the anime face close-up
  • Anila's final uncap has a full page of planned poses but everyone else seems to have been decided pretty quickly, Arulumaya, Narmaya and Yngwie's artwork is just the same concept from different angles
  • There's a scale reference for Vyrn's gearcycle and it's adorable (it's only as tall as Lyria's waist, which also makes his event even more hilarious with that in mind)
  • The internal contest for Kumbhira's design has a ton of different designs, can't really cover them in depth but I will note there's only two gyaru designs
  • Vajra has a lot of cute art frolicking with her puppies
  • Doctor's artwork was a lot more sinister in expression (I kinda wish we got it because it looks better than Alter Ego which is silly but on the other hand the final Doctor!Gran is so good)
  • Gran's Tanabata outfit is included for cosplay reference but not Djeeta's for some reason
  • On the other hand, Djeeta's cooking art from Bistro Feendrache is included but not Gran's
  • The Eternal uncaps couldn't fit vertically so they did a cool thing where they have the horizontal artwork on one page and a vertical closeup on the other.
  • Cygames seems to have something against Vane's chest specifically, in the original glasses promo artwork both him and Percival had unbuttoned shirts to expose their chests but there's an footnote where they specifically tell them to give Vane an undershirt, no such thing for Percy
  • "Skarsara" is the only mistranslated name, everyone else is transcribed correctly. It stands out because her name is transcribed correctly in the last artbook so ???

@Lyria: She's good for the normal raids as well. Her high def down debuff when put next to Gran means your other members will dosh out a lot more damage with that crit boost too.

I used her for ages to finish the Hard raids in one turn during Strike Time. Don't even debuff them cause her devuff is that good.

[up] Weird. Is it because Vane's infamous for his pecs being loved by his fans? Cause Percival doesn't have that.

Weird. Is it because Vane's infamous for his pecs being loved by his fans?

Hard to say but considering that footnote, it is surprising that Lancelot's the one with the jacket for the swimsuit version with Cygames' pathological aversion to ever exposing Vane's skin actually being shot down.

apparently they changed parts of Belial's dialogue in a stealth patch?? It went from barely veiled subtext to not even trying to hide anything

Original: Isn't doing the ol' fandango just the greatest? Well if you're into that sorta thing!

New: A fine helmsman like you could always use another hand on the rudder. Well, if you know what I mean...

I think the original was fine but the new version is pretty good.

The first clear rewards (uncap and weapons) of the T2 Summon raids is guaranteed, right? IF I host one, I can get the weapons even if I don't hurt the boss much?

Bow-chicka-wow-wow... Now bow chicka bow down.
Sep 9th 2019 at 5:05:25 PM

Unfortunately, all it gets you is the ability to uncap - you'll need to farm the materials too. Fortunately the urns and so on you'll need are guaranteed from hosting, and I think from doing HL rank 101+ raids too?
