some Lightning Returns notes
« on: December 21, 2013, 10:21:32 PM »
Most abilities seem to return or have an equivalent.  Some work differently--Vigor seems to be based on ATB now.    Synthesis also seems to be tied to leveling up abilities. 

There are ways to get critical and auto-buffs but they all seem to be a very short duration and may come with a drawback.  (The equivalent of the talismans seem to lower Lightning's max HP in battle.)  Although I think I saw something about gear that extends durations.  edit: that's probably debuff durations, although I suppose it might have a buff version.

Accessory I was looking at apparently only extends buffs from potions. 

I'm still pretty early as I always try to play with Otherworld on.   But some more general stuff:

Heavy Slash is probably the best supported ability in the game.  You don't have to worry about finding Anubys to fight much, it has great stats, it has a great rare synth, it has garbs that amp it more, it has accessories that amp it more.  The closest comparison is Punt, which becomes multihit insanity with the monk garb and Overclock.

Equivalent abilities to the past game

Hard Hitter= Pressure
Defender=Immovable
Protect Thief and Brave Thief=  _____ Eater (several in one)
Deprotect Chaser=  ____ Chaser (several in one)
High Voltage=Adrenalin
Defensive Position= Improved Guard
Critical Barrier= Critical Shield
Chance Reprieve= Random: Nullify Damage
Victor Siphon= Kill ATB Charge
