I LOVED BOF3. Various reasons. How does this compare to it? I already know that the dragons are hideous, but besides that a few questions.... can you still examine--> learn enemy skills? whats the dragon variety like? i noticed on some youtube videos no matter what dragon it was, ryu would always turn into this warrior look alike from bof3, whats up with that?
1. On Examine: You no longer have to examine a single enemy. Instead, you 'guard' (defend in BoF3), and the character examines EVERYONE, including your own party. Ryus' dragon forms have learnable skills, and you can teach your party that way. If a skill can be learned, it will be highlighted in blue if someone is guarding when the skill is used.
2. On Dragons: You have Aura, Kaiser, Wyvern (Weyr), Behemoth (Mammoth), Myrmidon (Knight) and Mutant (Punk), for a total of six dragons, four of which can be upgraded. As with BoF3, each dragon has different multipliers to stats and different skillsets. When you transform into a dragon, you take on a dragon hybrid form until you use a breath attack, where you summon the true form of your dragon to 'breathe' on foes. More on this in the Dragon Guide by Raiu.
