I'm sorry guys, I HAD to do that


Slow Burn gives the user a +1 Hit/Avoid per turn until the 15th turn, making the final bonus a +15 Hit/Avoid.

It can have a interesting use with Quick burn for a +16 Hit/Avoid bonus until the 15th turn...but you might as well just grab Lucky Seven and enjoy a bigger bonus that will last enough turns.

The bonus will be insignificant for too long, and WHEN it's relevant...it won't be necessary. I give this a D rank.


Lifetaker allows the user to recovers 50% HP after they defeat an enemy during the Player Phase.

It's a nice healing bonus, for something you are kinda supposed to be doing. The fact that it can't activate during Enemy Phase hurts it, and my final rating is an A Rank.

Lifetaker is an easy A, it can help you but won't save you like Vantage does during enemy attack.

Slow burn is just...ugh...15 turns before it's useful which is pretty long, but then it gets kinda good. But yeah too small window of opportunity. D rank.

Slow Burn - D

It's just not good at all. You only use it as you're leveling or you literally are in a skill drought. Lucky 7 also is more widely open to more characters and takes a dump all over Slow and Quick Burn.

Lifetaker - C

Decent healing but since Sol exists it's not that good at all. If it had offered some healing when you need it the most, enemy phase, than it would be far better. It doesn't, thus it isn't anywhere near as helpful as Sol.

Slow Burn: D I'll die of old age before this skill gets any effect
Lifetaker: C, you only heal during your turn, instead of the enemy turn which is where you'd appreciate the help, but it has good synergy with Galeforce and 50% is quite a lot, skill too situational for me though.
Poor Dark Knight, such wasted potential, I want Eyrios back.

Slow Burn: D
Lifetaker: A


Life taker is excellent on archers, tbh. That combined with counter and Galeforce would make a mean sniper.

Slow Burn: Guh, terrible skill. Possibly the worst in the game. If you take fifteen turns on a map in this game, you're doing something very wrong. D all the way.

Lifetaker: Not bad, but highly overrated. B.
