Rate the Skill, Xenologue 3: Rally Heart and Bond.

#1guedesbrawlPosted 4/11/2013 7:57:42 PM(edited)
Kids, go play with Limit Break. I need y'all knowing what you are doing tomorrow.

-------------------
Characters who can learn Rally Heart or Bond: Every female character in the game.

Characters who can inherit Rally Heart or Bond: No one.
-------------------

And, the last gender-locked skills!... although, now that it isn't troublesome to write, it doesn't even matter to me anymore.


Rally Heart will give an All Stats +2 AND Movement +1 to all allies withing a 3-tile radius from the user...it costs a turn, as usual.

Now, All Stats+2 and Movement +1 are both B rank skills...so this gets an A rank. It's not on the same level as Rally Spectrum, though...


Bond will restore 10 HP to all allies within a 3-tile radius, every turn, It does not stack with itself, but you can increase it's range by having more users.

It's a small amount, sadly, but it still helps, and can help many at once. Useful for letting a Healer help on the offense too. There are more useful methods of healing, but it does it's job well. I give it a B rank.

I wonder if Bond was the result of the devs trying to make a Rally HP skill. I mean, it isn't that, but it's pretty similar, no? . It certainly wasn't inspired by 007, that's for sure.

And so begins a tale of vengeance and betrayal. Destiny by sinner sought. Tragedy by power wrought. Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume.
#4Smash MasterPosted 4/11/2013 8:05:44 PM
A on both. Heart and Spectrum are the only Rallys that should be higher than a B, for obvious reasons. Bond is nice if you're going for a support unit... which is pretty much what Bride is designed to be.

Plus, they actually combo nicely with each other. If the bride is the last person to move, and she Rallys, then shes going to hit those same targets with Bond at the start of the next turn.

I'd say B for both.

When the Black Knight tossed Ragnell to Greil, it was actually meant as an attack. If Awakening is any indication, the proper way to use Ragnell is to throw it.
#7KevinCCPosted 4/11/2013 8:09:38 PM
B and B.

I predict a few S-ranks tomorrow... one maybe an A, though, but one that breaks S-class and makes it look like a string of Fs.

Rally Heart - A

It's a strong rally, stacks with the other rallies, and because it offers more than the B ranked rallies, it has to go to A by logic.

Bond - B

It's a team renewal/relief in a broad sense, while not that strong. Having healing items is usually a stronger choice, but free heals is always amazing.

Rally love is nice with the movement, but it only gives +2 versus everything else +4.
Bond is an amazing pair up skill, be so much better if it was even 20 HP or stacked.

A/B. Rally heart is amazing. Bond is an extremely useful skill on support units but the 10 hp is somewhat lacking by the end of the game since against the harder enemies you can take a lot more than that in a single battle
