Why do people hate lethality?

#1Rev0luti0nN0wPosted 6/18/2013 7:41:31 AM
Once you've maxed out skill (And gotten limit breaker) lethality activates a lot! Plus, on the highest dlcs/spotpasses, you get tons of fighters with counter. Sol seems to be a lot of the times useless, and astra, well, against counter...

lethality+Ether (And 4 other good skills) seems to be a better combo for the highly skilled characters on the higher difficulties and higher dlcs.

The enemies that matter resist it.

I've beaten pretty much all of the level 5 dlcs and the only ones that 'resist' are ones with miracle. Is there some skill I'm unaware of?

Lethality has saved my neck a lot more times then using sol due to all those damn fighters with counter.

Sol activated four times as often and helps keep your HP up (and if you're not taking damage, you're probably strong enough that you don't need Lethality anyway).

Luna and Ignis both activate four times as often and are guaranteed sources of extra damage.

Astra activates twice as often, usually does enough damage to kill an opponent anyway, and most classes have some ranged option to get around opponents with Counter. Aether's in the same boat, but it's a lot rarer.


Also, last I heard, people like putting Lethality on SpotPass teams just to troll other players.

All the enemies in Apotheosis have Dragonskin, which negates the effects of Counter and Lethality.

But once you have LB and all those high stats/skills then you wont need it to KO enemies easily and the enemies that matter in Apotheosis all have Dragonskin.

Its uses are only in SP to annoy.

I've maxed defense and I put aegis and pavise on any character I can, so yeah most of the time I never take damage except for when I face those damn fighters with counter :(

Ah thanks. I was going to get Apotheosis at some point, most of the characters that have lethality have SOL.

You haven't played a map with 3-4 or more fighters with counter have you?

That's why we have Galeforce and units with bows/Sorcerers with Mire.
