we shouldn't forget new attacks for Griffin
he needs some sort of defense attack where he can take damage for other people
like, he casts it on somebody and for three turns he takes damage instead of the person reciving it
i mean, he has the Gift, and so far he's only used it to swing really hard (slash and double strike) or twirl his sword behind him (backhand)

if they're falling and we have an aerial view shouldn't they start big and decrease in size?

Oops, that's what I meant. Or at least was thinking about before typing.

Well, at least the idea of Rahel having a range 4 attack got in: Craig just said that trueshaft is a sniping attack with extra power (10 PsP cost though).

Who esle have we left out in general discussion so far?
Do you reckon Set has enough attacks? (Pacifist he may be, but I'd love for him to get at least a quasi-offensive attack, like Feedback. Though I highly doubt that will happen.)

For the potential Red Spriggat, I think having the two Heat shields might be a logical addition, since Grotius had the Frost Shield.

I agree that Griffin should have another attack, an area attack preferably.

Would everyone agree that it would be nice to have Arman equipped with a Desert Scorpion poison stab-style attack? (Get -1 to the enemy's strength.) Could be used with great efficiency against the enemy, and shouldn't require tinkering with the enemy AI. (If all agree, I'll add it to formulated.) What do you reckon the cost should be?

Around 6-10 because if your taking out one strength that's pretty big, and it is an attack from arman (whose attacks either use to much or too little PsP) so it makes somewhat balanced.

Indeed, that sounds reasonable- for it not to be overused, but still available, if it's just Stab+poison, then how about 6?

He has more attack then any other ally.  If you want a healer who can attack, then you should have a Shadowling Healer.

For the potential Red Spriggat, I think having the two Heat shields might be a logical addition, since Grotius had the Frost Shield.
That would be a dissadvantage for those who picked the heat element for the Hero.  Hero's with non-Heat elements would be able to give two types of resistance, while the Heat Hero will only be able to give one.

Would everyone agree that it would be nice to have Arman equipped with a Desert Scorpion poison stab-style attack? (Get -1 to the enemy's strength.)

I would like it if you can think of a better name then "Desert Scorpion poison stab-style attack".

the idea of Arman having a debuff attack sounds good
how about "Poison Strike (or Blow)"

or quite simply Poison, the descriptive name can be applied in the description when he learns the attack.

1 strength is usually not that much to subtract from an enemy; it is usually much more efficient to just outright own them with Mega Stab.

That depends on how much cheaper the poison attack is, and how effective mega stab is- if it can knock out the enemy in one turn- go for it, otherwise reduce the enemy's damage and keep going at him for several turns. Forget not what you said yourself of the significance of 1 damage difference over time- plus, the attack can be used more than once. If it's kept within the 6-7 range, then I think it might be worth going for it twice, then go for one Mega Stab, run out of PsP, and resort to Knife to kill the boss off.

"Poison Strike" or "Poison Stab" sounds reasonable. Anyone else have other suggestions?

I like Poison Strike and Poison Stab is a close second.

I like poison stab and poison strike second, but it doesn't matter that much to me. Back to the area attacks, I like the shadow star attack better than the previous one.
