New Character

Kam’lanaut from FFXI

Type: Specialist

When he lands the final hit of an attack, then that attack gains a buff for a while. Landing this buffed version will not reset the duration. The buff allows him to hold down the button to add more hits to the first input. I do not know if there are effects other than visual to the non-held down version of the buffed attack.

Earth Blade / Terrafication – ground neutral bravery (literally Earth God Blade / Earth Demon Blade)

  • 2 inputs
  • Melee attack
  • Bravery damage: (176) + (272) = 448
  • Bravery damage of hold: (176 + 32 + 32) + (272) = 512
  • Buff duration: 20 seconds

Frost Blade / Glacification – ground forward bravery (literally Ice God Blade / Ice Demon Blade)

  • 2 inputs
  • Melee attack
  • Bravery damage: (192) + (256) = 448
  • Bravery damage of hold: (176 + 32 + 32) + (272) = 512
  • Buff duration: 20 seconds

Water Blade / Liquification – ground back bravery (literally Water God Blade / Water Demon Blade)

  • 1 input
  • Projectile attack with low projectile strength (maybe medium when charged)
  • Bravery damage: 384
  • Bravery damage of hold: 64 + 32 + 32 + 304 = 432
  • Buff duration: 20 seconds

Savage Blade – ground dash bravery

  • 1 input
  • Melee attack
  • Bravery damage: 16 * n + 432 (n is the number of hits based on height)

Flame Blade / Ignition – air neutral bravery (literally Fire God Blade / Fire Demon Blade)

  • 2 inputs
  • Melee attack
  • Bravery damage: (176) + (272) = 448
  • Bravery damage of hold: (176 + 32 + 32) + (272) = 512
  • Buff duration: 20 seconds

Wind Blade / Vaporization – air forward bravery (literally Wind God Blade / Wind Demon Blade)

  • 2 inputs
  • Melee attack
  • Bravery damage: (176) + (272) = 448
  • Bravery damage of hold: (176 + 32 + 32) + (272) = 512
  • Buff duration: 20 seconds

Lightning Blade / Electrification – air back bravery (literally Lighting God Blade / Lightning Demon Blade)

  • 1 input
  • Projectile attack with low projectile strength (maybe medium when charged)
  • Bravery damage: 384
  • Bravery damage of hold: 64 + 32 + 32 + 304 = 432
  • Buff duration: 20 seconds

Shield Bash – air dash bravery

  • 1 input
  • Melee attack
  • Bravery damage: (24 * 5 + 344) = 464

Great Wheel – HP1 (literally Great Wind Wheel)

  • Melee HP attack

Spirits Within – HP2

  • Search-type projectile HP attack
  • Starts with a 25m range, but decreases with HP (like Firion’s Weaponmaster)

Light Blade – HP3 (literally Light Ring Blade)

  • Melee HP attack
  • Bravery damage: 128
  • After landing it 3 times: bravery damage increased to 128 + 48 + 40 * 2 = 256
  • After landing it a total of 6 times: bravery damage increased to 128 + 64 + 48 * 4 = 384

Intervene – HP4

  • Counter melee HP attack
  • Can parry bravery attacks
  • Like with Sephiroth’s Scintilla, the attack will come out even if it does not parry anything
  • If it parries something, then it will gain invincibility and increased range and angle

Esoteric Region – unique EX skills

  • Cooldown: 20 seconds
  • Can stock up to 4
  • Places a magic sphere at his location that applies a debuff to any opponent that touches it. The sphere has a duration of 30 seconds. Can have all 4 out at once. The buffs for his bravery attacks get a 2.5s longer duration per amount of spheres he has placed
  • The spheres disappear when Kam’lanaut is killed
  • The debuff lasts for 15 seconds and is refreshed if the opponent touches the sphere again. The debuff decreases attack by 30%, defense by 50% (damage taken increased by 31.25%), and speed by some number (hard to get specifics, but it is at least 20% based on other skills). It also seals the use of common EX skills
  • Can cancel the recovery of his bravery attacks into Esoteric Region

EX Skills

Bravery Conduit

  • Cooldown increased (50s -> 60s)
  • Range decreased (40m -> 35m, height: 25m -> 15m)

Mighty Guard

  • Duration increased (10s -> 15s)
  • Range increased (radius: 20m -> 25m)

Summons

  • The summons’ attacks are not affected anymore by buffs or debuffs to defence.

Bug Fixes and Other Small Changes

All characters

  • When some attacks that do no cause hit- or guard-stun hit, if a teammate’s HP attack hit, you got points for “Restrained Foes” under “Support Points” for your match score.

Common EX Skills

  • Share HP: When a teammate used Share HP, the amount of HP you recovered did not show on screen.

Character

  • Cloud: During hitting, Omnislash during Limit Break sometimes lost its invincibility.
  • Lighting: When using Army of One, the second hit sometimes did not connect.
  • Minor bug fixes
