I can't believe I forgot about this and just went to sleep. Damn.

You've probably noticed that I changed the format for those last paralogues. I can only wonder why,,,

---------
Luna:
*Who stats with this Skill: Priam.
*Who can learn this Skill: Frederick, Sully, Stahl, Chrom, Ricken, Sumia, Kellam, Tharja, Basilio, Flavia, Lucina, Brady, Kjelle, Cynthia, Noire, Walhart, Avatar, Morgan.
*Who can inherit this Skill: Owain, Inigo, Severa, Gerome, Yarne, Laurent, Nah.

Dual Support+:
*Who can learn this Skill: Mariabelle, Lissa, Miriel, Cherche, Emmeryn, Female Avatar, Female Morgan.
*Who can inherit this Skill: Lucina, Owain, Brady, Kjelle, Cynthia, Severa, Gerome, Laurent, Noire, Nah, Male Morgan.
----------

Luna has a skill% chance of triggering. when it does, half of the enemy's Defense/Resistance will be ignored during your attack.

This will provide a nice offensive bonus that will activate often, but nothing spectacular enough for it to be moved from A to S rank. So, A rank for that.


Dual Support+, well, i've decide to try explaining this instead of just shoving a link to serenes. Or at least, that was the plan until i had problems copying that chart (i used spaces to make it look better, but when posting, the extra spaces get erased). so, yeah, GFs, you win.

http://serenesforest.net/fe13/dual.html

This Skill will increase the support level by 4, making the minumun you can get 5. You can get big bonuses from a S ranked pair with this Skill (rank 9), and you only need a B support with an adjacent unit to get the maximum bonus. The best bonus here is the Critical Hit Rate.

It's specially good when making builds based around that, because with a forged Killer weapon, decent stats and Wrath, you will have almost 100% of doing a Critical Hit. It's Hit/Avoid Rate increases are as good as usual, and
the Dodge Rate bonus will be enough to negate most enemies' Critical Hit Rates, provided they don't have a crit build too.

It's by far, the best and most reliable Hit/Avoid booster, and provides extra things to boot.It can also be a good way of making up for DLC/Spotpass units/Emmeryn's lack of support, too. And it the support unit can use it to boost the lead's performance, so the lead doesn't need a hit/avoid/crit booster if the support has this.

It's very good, and should stay at A. it would be silly to say otherwise, me thinks...

Luna is [Skill%] trigger bro, Astra and Aether are the [Skill/2%] ones.

Anyways I'd say Luna is S for drain tanks, B for everyone else, A overall. Dual Support is pretty nice so I'd give it an A as well.

Luna is an extremely solid skill period. Especially in Lunatic and higher, where it's common to see enemies with capped defense stats.

A and B

Luna lets you deal heavy damage against tanks.

Dual support is good, but outclassed by other support skills. Plus, only females with Valkyrie can access it.

I was conflicted, but I would have to rate it thus:

Luna: A
Dual Support: C

Dual Support is a decent skill, but the relative benefits start becoming less significant at higher support ranks + there is a cap.

If you deploy a team with multiple characters that support each other, Dual Support+ utility becomes a lot less significant.

And investing in Dual Support period is essentially a proclamation that the unit is only going to be used as a passive pair-up partner.

Also, female only.

you can pass it down. I'm not sure who that would be ideal on, brady can get it but he loses galeforce. though if you have dual support does he really want it to begin with?
