Friendship Bonuses

Postby legalize freedom » Thu Aug 18 2016 1:01pm

After seeing the need for a change to Sucumb, I reviewed all the names and descriptions of friendship bonuses. Please make suggestions if you have them.

A couple of notes:
Added clarity to those which affect a chance of something.
Master and Guard seem to be the odd names out, but I think they still work. I'm considering XP Gain for Master. And maybe Defend or Protect for Guard, but I don't want to confuse this with defense... I'm liking Guard for the moment.
Crit Evade may be too long. If so, we may have to fall back on Crit Def. I'll have to test in game.
I believe the last 4 descriptions use the Support name

Name

None
No Benefit

Attack

Critical

Increases Counter chance and Magic Resistance

EXP works fine for Master, do not use 'Gain' because that is implied already (We do not say Gold Gained)

What does Divert enemy attack mean? Does it imply that the enemy attacks to the friend, or does it mean the enemy just changes who it is attacking, and when is Guard even used in the game? I do not remember it being used, or is this one of the carry overs from StHA

I don't know that Guard is used, but I haven't checked all characters, so I can't say for sure. It is currently known as Protect.

I had no idea that you could get extra exp, gold or item drops from friendships. Which characters have these?

I don't believe they are used, but I'm not sure if they can be edited in with a game shark.

I think it's a good idea to cover your bases and I'm sure they can be edited in since the "Chant" magic can be accessed via gameshark codes as well as several weapons (see list below).

  • Light Anchor
  • Moogie Arrow
  • Dragon Cestus
  • Ultra Tomahawk
  • Thief Knife
  • Joker Knife
  • Needle Quarrel
  • Dark Rapier
  • Pulsar Shot
  • Beast Spear
  • Comet Spear
  • Gladius
  • Pyra's Wand
  • Stealth Wing

Yeah but from Sc2 onwards i think. Perhaps this wasn't a correct translation but rather one of the original translators called it that to honour Moogie? I don't know.

It is gameshark only available in all scenarios. It is indeed in honour of our very own GOATS. It comes with a special attack that Charms. Now don't you HAVE to use it?
