Valen Posted August 26, 2019 Share Posted August 26, 2019 (edited) Many of the Expert Types' PA damage is locked in later PA levels that aren't currently obtainable (usually the 41 - 50 range). If we increase their PA level caps, like how it was done with GAS, it will help close the gap between them and Master Types. Keeping in mind, that on JP, Expert Types were on par in many cases with Master Types. Expert Types: Fighgunner, Guntecher, Wartecher, Fortefighter, Fortegunner, Fortetecher, Protranser, Acrofighter, and Acrotecher. PA level caps with GAS: Fighgunner: 50 Skills, 40 Bullets. Guntecher: 20 Skills, 50 Bullets, 40 Attack TECHNICS, 30 Support TECHNICS. Wartecher: 50 Skills, 30 Bullets, 40 Attack TECHNICS, 30 Support TECHNICS. Fortefighter: 50 Skills, 30 Bullets. Fortegunner: 30 Skills, 50 Bullets. Fortetecher: 20 Skills, 40 Bullets, 50 Attack TECHNICS, 40 Support TECHNICS. Protranser: 40 Skills, 50 Bullets. Acrofighter: 50 Skills, 40 Bullets. Acrotecher: 30 Skills, 30 Bullets, 40 Attack TECHNICS, 50 Support TECHNICS. I'm only bringing this up because Fighmaster got Ultimate Chain and Cursed Dark Flow, which puts them pretty far ahead. Acrofighter is able to keep up as well with Gleaming Trickster and Furinkazan, even outshining them in some cases, but the other Expert Types were left in the dust. With HP Affects PWR also getting nerfed, Guntecher, Fortegunner, and Fighgunner got hurt a decent bit as well with Crossbows. Gunmaster / Fortegunner was hurt in the meta as well, Acrofighter and Fighmaster basically does their job for the most part (not counting the vertical ranged ability of gunners on bosses), by keeping up with their damage on Half Damage enemies if they have their weapons. Edit: Since a lot of people keep pointing out that GAS had you pick specific weapons to level up, and not just a flat 10 PA levels for everything, let me point out that last time I heard, Marm does not have the packets to recreate GAS. It would probably be unlikely that they can in some way have you choose what PAs we want increased. If we were to force specific weapons, then that wouldn't really be fair for people who want to use something else.
