grievous lack of
Lex gonna Lex.
Alec still had the Brave Swords from last chapter, so I made him hold onto it for easy arena cheesing (and Paragon which he finally had enough money to get a pass on)
This is more or less the same promotion Ethlyn got, except no Staff access, but a B rank in Lance instead.
The caps are the same, though. Aka, a bit too middling to be good. Story of Alec's life.
Yeah, figures, after all that cheesing it helped Alec do XD
Hero is another case of a class just being objectively less good than the alternative Swordmaster.
The Speed and Skill caps are still good, mind you, but lower by 3 points. The Strength cap is the same. The Def cap is the same. The only trade off is Magic being a bit higher (as if that would ever make a difference). And you also lose out on the Adept skill. It's still a good class, mind, just... objectively not as good as Swordmaster.
We're pretty far from the GBA and other latter game version of that class, which gets access to axes at promotion and a better balanced statline with better strength and defense...
Arena headcanon! This guy Kraft is the 5th opponent in the arena, and he's a Mage Knight with a Elthunder.
When Reptor and Langbalt showed up at the end of Chapter 3, their armies was mostly made of Great Knights and Mage Knights like this. I figure that's where he came from. He decided he was going to make a name for himself by hunting down the traitor Sigurd and bring him back to justice!!! He went all the way to Silesse for this... but then well. It's a pretty cool land, and he fell in love with someone, and, you know, settled in the place... and now he's earning his money in the arena and he's given up on all that stuff XD
By the way, what's in the Store this chapter. Finally a Wind tome for Azel! The Recover staff is a B rank staves that heal all of the HP of a unit regardless of the healer's Magic. Gonna give it to Lachesis I think. The Return band is gonna get to Aideen as usual.
