Characters who start with Magic +2 and can learn Focus: Miriel, Ricken.

Characters who start with both skills: Laurent, Emmeryn, Morgan (born form one of the four)

Characters who can learn both skills: Virion, Mariabelle, Nowi, Libra, Anna, Tiki, Brady, Nah.

Characters who can inherit the skills and the class required: Lucina (Mariabelle, Avatar), Cynthia (Avatar), Owain, Inigo, Kjelle, Severa, Gerome, Yarne, Noire.

-------------------

Magic +2 is another self explanatory skill. It can potentially be Magic +4 in the long run with speedy characters, and also it's a little boost for physical units that reclassed to mage: their magic stat will be pretty low for a while. So, not good, not useless, a textbook C rank skill.


Focus is another isolation skill. in it's case, by having no allies within a 3-tile radius, you will get a +10 critical boost.

Just advance the user alone and have the other catch up within the same turn. You can combine this with other crit-boosters like Wrath and Zeal to get a nice little boost. I think it's a B rank skill, you just need to think a little when using it.

Aaaaaand Vantage gets mad overrated to death. No surprise.

Nominate Relief, that needs to go down to D.

C/C

Focus only manages to squeak out a C because you can make it useful with enough other skills. Still terrible 9/10 times though.

Magic+2: D. Just use all stats +2, tomefaire, or weaponfaire for weapons that use the magic stat.
Focus: D. It's not very hard to make it active, but the bonus is rather small. It's just like tantivity, which is in the D tier.

I wish I could use my nomination to take away from the astra votes. That skill is right where it belongs. I'm not nominating anything this time. I have a feeling people are trying to move some of the skills up that I want moved down, so my vote would be doing the opposite of what I want.

C/D. If other +2 stats were in D, magic would be as well, but they aren't for some reason. Nominating special dance.

Agreed. Can I use my nomination to discuss all +2 stats? They all deserve D tier, except maybe speed. Going one by one would be a real pain. Nominate strength +2, or all +2 skills if tc will allow it.

D/D

D Isolation skill+ lunatic/+ = death

D Magic +2 If you could get this skill at the start of 1-5 it would be B or A rank but since you get access to it after you finish the nightmare beginning chapters it is worthless
#9MajorasMask9Posted 3/23/2013 8:09:26 AM
Magic +2: D
Focus: D

Nominate: Rally Movement

Fierce Diety Link is the best Link people who agree: 128

what's up with you guys.

all of the +2 skills do something different. only skill and luck are at d, and that's because they do basically nothing, while the others are actually significant in a way or another
