"Super attack" for Rajav?
« on: February 24, 2012, 06:01:34 PM »

I know that this is kind of late to be suggesting things, for obvious reasons, but what I'm suggesting is minor, so hopefully it is feasible to include in a patch.

Griffin, Rahel, and Arman all learn upgraded versions of their attacks that have much higher damage multipliers, but greater costs -- Double Strike, Trueshaft, and Mega Stab respectively. However, Rajav, who is mostly a simple melee unit, does not get anything like this however. Would it be possible to give him some form of equivalent? He really isn't good for much else, and since he and Griffin are so similar, it seems a bit imbalanced to only give one of them a major damage attack.

Do you have anything specific in mind?

Beware: a joke lies inside
As a joke, Rajav could have a special attack: seduction. All enemies would fall in love with him and would stop fighting (at least for a brief moment). If the effect goes wrong, all enemies would start laughing and would, nevertheless, stop fighting (at least for a brief moment).

Heh.

Well, it doesn't have to be very specific, does it? Just use the same damage formula as Trueshaft and/or Double Strike. Though I suppose it could be a ranged attack...perhaps a more powerful throw? I think that would suit the dynamic pretty well. Griffin's attack has a range of 1, Rajav has a range of 2, and Rahel has a range of 3.

I think Rajav didn't get a mega attack because his spirit abilites give him an edge over Griffin, Rahel, Qudssi, and Arman.  His physical resistance allows him to take more damage and his floating ability gives him more mobility.

or he might invertedly bring Fury to an enemy with offensive, sexually suggestive.

Okay, so, uh, how about this?

Deep Pierce
Through careful training, Rajav is able to use the intangibility of his spear more effectively, bypassing his opponents' armor and inflicting a more grievous wound.

Element: Physical
Range: 2
Cost: 10
Damage: Strength + Psy Power + (Deep Pierce level*2)

And what do you think about diagonal attacks?
Like the left and right jab.
Of course, there could be also an upgraded version that dealt more damage.
