*cries*

To think this is the last time I'm doing this...

Also, i'm quite surprised that Shadowgift recieved more negative comments and... somehow got up a rank.

-----------------
Aether:
*Who starts with this Skill: Lucina .
*Who can learn this Skill: Chrom.
*Who can inherit this Skill: Kjelle, Cynthia, Female Morgan (from Lucina).

Paragon:
*Who can learn this Skill: Anyone.
*Who can inherit this Skill: No one.
-----------------

Aether is a two-hit attack that consists of Sol and Luna. It's activation rate is skill/2.

Frankly, you should only use it with Rightful King, at which point it will have a proc rate that's too high for what it does: Healing and Damage.

I mean, if Vantage got bumped because of other skills, this should stay at S rank. It would need a lower proc rate for something so useful like it is.


Paragon doubles experience gained.

This is for grinding purposes only. It will be hard to access during the main game, and this is worth mentioning: IT DOESN'T BREAK THE GAME like, you know, Veteran... >_>.

Still good at what it does, but since it will someday be replaced, and doesn't break anything in half, like, say, early lunatic/+... A rank, where it currently is.

Aether - A

Pretty good but it isn't very reliable without Rightful King. So only Chrom and Lucina can reliably use it.

Paragon - S

The best skill to have when getting to caps and skills.

S for Aether.
C for Paragon.

Aether literally doubles your damage at bare minimum first off for the hit it activates on.
Second, the Sol effect is considered one of the best skills in the game.
Third, late game Luna is the strongest skill activation in terms of damage.

Aether combines both of these skills together into 1 skill and 2 out of a potential max of 4 characters in a single file (at least characters that are truly part of Awakening) can get this skill will have Rightful King as well further increasing it's activation chance.

And let's not forget, be honest with yourself for anyone who plans on giving this a low Rank, if your character has this skill even without Rightful King, you're more than likely going to use it no matter what.

Paragon doesn't break anything. Only useful for pretty much post game content to help you out to get skills and stats which is nice, but doesn't do much for the main game at all. You break your game by grinding to get paragon, not because of paragon.

Veteran gets S, so a more powerful and available version of this should get an S.

Aether as you pointed out has a low proc rate throughout the game and only becomes okay when RK shows up.

I have nothing to say about Paragon.
