Rate the Skill, Paralogue 11: Shadowgift and Rally Defense

#1guedesbrawlPosted 4/24/2013 7:14:13 PM
it's almost over!

I've heard that you Aversa always passes Shadowgift, no matter what. Does something similar happens with Walhart?

---------------
Rally Defense:
*Who can learn this Skill: Frederick, Sumia, Tharja, Basilio, Flavia, Kjelle, Cynthia, Noire, Walhart, Avatar, Morgan.
*Who can inherit this Skill: Lucina, Owain, Inigo, Brady, Severa, Gerome, Yarne, Laurent, Nah.

Shadowgift:
Who starts with this Skill: Aversa, Morgan.
---------------

Rally Defense is out usual rally skill. But think about it, most enemies are melee units, so a +4 buff can save a lot of HP in the end. It should be up there with the other rallies, B rank.


Shadowgift allows a Tome-wielder that couldn't use dark tomes.... to use them. This opens many possibilities, since the other tome users always have interesting toys to play with (like staves), and dark magic is an OP amusement park by itself.

But, it has poor availability... I'm lowering my vote to an A rank here.

Shadowgift: B, not changing my vote, it's nice but dark magic is really suited only for Sorcerers.

Rally Def.: C No rally aside from Spectrum and Heart is above a C IMO since they're only good when paired together, and I value skills based on singular effect.

Shadowgift: S if Limit Break is up availability obviously isn't a factor.
Rally Defense: B +4 defense is always nice in this game.

I'm not comparing them simply pointing out that LB proves we're doing this according to late and post game during which Shadowgift is amazing.

Shadowgift: A. It is absolutely amazing on Morgan.

Rally defense: C not the most needed rally.

A for Shadowgift -- if I hadn't planned on marrying Tharja, Aversa would've been my pick. it still makes her a unique, effective Dark Flier.

B for Rally Defense -- handy, finds a place on rallybots.
