Etoile Battle Ability Satisfaction (Deeper Look)

  • Etoile got praise for its high defense, and how easy it is to survive without having to worry too much about HP. They also liked that when using it as a subclass the defense was still good. They thought the Guard Actions of the three weapons were interesting, and that Full Connect and Protect Release were exhilarating.
  • Players were not fond of Overdrive’s recast time being too long. They didn’t like how the floaty movement makes it difficult to get the right timing. They also felt the travel PAs are sluggish, making it difficult to use.

The development team plans to make adjustments to Overdrive in the future.
