75% of the time, I forget I have them in the first place. Gods, you should have seen me when I was playing EO2U - damn near never popped a Force Boost unless we were engaging a Boss or an FOE.

If I commit to a run like this, it just means I can no longer abuse Mana Heal, which is just about all I ever use my Union Skills for during regular exploration. I'll miss Aegis Guard when going up against the Star Devourer, but I reckon I'll find something else to deal with that anyway.

no Chain Blast? Could be interesting if not for the fact I can poor-man an alternative with my Barrage pugilist.

I mostly just use Mana Heal for TP healing and Hygeia's Bowl for reviving. I'm pretty sure Resuscitate is better for that, but IDK how to use it, last time I tried my Masurao stayed KO'd.

You select the other character needed for the union and then you select the dead person. also if you back out you need to redo the union skill.

Thought so, I must have accidentally selected my Pugilist twice by accident. Though I'm surprised it still went through on "reviving" a member who wasn't KO'd - usually when I'm selecting a member/enemy that can't be selected with the skill/action (e.g. attacking an enemy who is already dead, or healing a member who is already at full health), it targets a different member/enemy instead.

Either way, Hygeia's Bowl is still pretty useful. I rarely had to revive twice in the same battle, and it healed all other members too. So if my Pugilist (who also got hit quite a lot) was at low HP, they would get healed too.

Hygeia's Bowl is just really useful in general, regardless of whether or not it's only one member who needs reviving.

Probably not a big problem but ailment/bind infliction will be rough and bad battles are harder to escape :/

The escape union skill should be allowed, if only to offset the RNG factor in blindsides.
