Is this something I should level before Smash mastery and Critical hit? It affects all smash attacks, but only dissipates after Cross cut, right?
Also, the text says "Increases damage of Blade Heart and its status ailments by 0%." What status ailments is it referring to? --- https://sites.google.com/site/pokemontacticssrpg/home Pokemon Tactics: The fan made Pokemon SRPG
Not too sure on the Status ailments, but I think it's better ranked after Smash and Crit. Or before, that's good too. I'm doing it after. --- "Mistakes are just a part of learning. You donít become an Expert At Bandit Extermination without accidentally offing a few farmers, for instance."
I'm not sure whether maxing it over Smash Mastery will give more damage since I always consume stacks against bosses with cross cut. Rarely will I get Lv 3 Blade Heart, and if I do, it'll be gone within the next few seconds. It might be more useful in parties since bosses do not aggro on Vella that easily and she'll be able to maintain Blade Heart stacks easier. --- "With kindness comes naivete. Courage becomes foolhardiness. And dedication has no reward..."
I've also read that it only takes the first stack of Blade Heart to get the extra smash damage. Extra ranks only affect Cross Cut. So one hit and you're good. --- "Mistakes are just a part of learning. You donít become an Expert At Bandit Extermination without accidentally offing a few farmers, for instance."
