 Post subject: PSIV Slashers
PostPosted: Wed Jul 18, '07, 3:31 pm 
I think, .. perhaps the general opinion of Slashers was that .. they were incredibly weak up to the point of uselessness. Except in Alys' case who had a quite useful skill set for them.
But with Kyra... anytime I play PSIV, she always just has on two shields..

So, what do you all think?

Do you think perhaps that the slashers could have done with... some kind of set damage rate when used in a normal attack, much like the guns from PSI?

nah i think they work how the game makes them sound out, a slasher isnt used for major damage but to strike down and weaken many foes so your allies can deal the finishing blow..

Kyra's pretty good with two slashers. She's not going to one-hit KO anything, but she does a respectable amount of damage. They would have been better with a few more to stagger the power increases of the slashers.

I've never actually tried the two shields thing on any of the characters. I always give them a weapon so they can knock some heads. :lol:

The Slashers are pretty useless in my hack, but like Neithird said, they are more for weakening the enemies rather than taking them all out at once. I found them pretty useful in the unhacked version of PSIV.

Au contraire, I immediately got rid of Kyra's shield and got her another Slasher, then setting up a combo with Wren attacking first with his Pulse Cannon and then Kyra. Especially once she has gained quite some levels, her agility (I think it was agility that determined the chance of attacking first) is high enough to provide a reasonable chance of Kyra striking before monsters. The Wren and Kyra combo usually wipes out the whole screen, of course depending on the type of foe. When I encounter very strong enemies I of course take another combo with Rika and Chaz striking first to take out one or two enemies before they can attack (since I know the Wren/Kyra combo will leave all of them alive).

I always gave Kyra a second Slasher -- I love 'em. :mrgreen: I never found them to be useless at all, since Kyra always did a decent amount of damage.

:rofl: Well yeah, try out Komrade's patch.. then try using them.

I reeaaaaally, should have remembered the version I was playing wasn't the norm.. xD

Even then, with Kyra, I still didn't use her slashers...just because I always preferred her magic.
