I'm playing TLA now and it feels like I need to level grind while I didn't in TBS. I don't think my behavior for fighting vs running from enemies is different between the games, yet my level 13ish squad is getting destroyed in Gondowan Cliffs. I had similar struggles in Yampi Desert and Air's Rock where if two or three enemies decided to gang up on Sheba or Jenna they'd just go down in a single round of combat. To me it seems the experience gain doesn't scale with the enemy strength as much as in TBS so I end up a little underleveled.

Level 10-18 (Yampi to Kibombo) in TLA is the hardest to balance. Usually is pretty easy since TBS scales really well so it's just about finding a good multiplier to the stats there (on top of some changes to the skills) and copy paste them to TLA, which is way easier than the predecessor.

But TBS assumes that you gain Mia at 10, and scales accordingly. In TBS though, Piers joins at 18, so with a mere copy paste from TBS (my starting point) you end up fighting enemies balanced for a team of 4 with a team of 3. I obviously made a lot of changes since then, trying to smooth out that difficulty spike but getting rid of it is another thing sadly (moreso if you're a bit underleveled).

Thanks for the feedback ;)

if i do ill make sure to use search first
Most of the time there's no need to go that far. Checking the first post should be enough

aren't Punishment, Heal, and Boon recolors of pre-existing icons?
No recolors. I have a fixed number of slots, each different icons takes 1 (can easily be seen from the editor).

you need to halve them. or just look at the class doc.
as for items/psy, i lack icons. for classes, just no. we already discussed the 4th item class

Golden Boots
It has a niche. Sounds good enough to me.

Brilliant Circlet and Floral Dress are direct downgrades from the Astral Circlet and Cocktail Dress respectively.
Astral Circlet doesn't add Luck. Floral Dress has always been the "dud" of the Lemurian fountain.

What is Elementalist's Role?
Elementalist is a Fateweaver toned down offensively with better support. It's the venus child of fateweaver and pure mage. AKA the best i could came up with for a venus mage bound to GS1.

I think un-nerfing the healing bonus from Elemental Power
I changed my mind three times while writing this answer. First was no cause i want elemental bonuses to be the same for offense and healing, then yes cause offense has the pp multiplier to compensate, then no again cause this would give an unfair and unfixable advantage to classes with less elements.

Would it be possible to have the Douse Drop and Frost Jewel to bestow their entire Psynergy Lines

Give Jenna's Heretic a Venus Fume Psynergy and swap Punji with the Jupiter Psynergy closest in base power. This would give the Ker's Weight purpose and thus make sense for a Cursed Mage Build.
Heretic is the jupiter tri-elemental.

since Paladin/Holy Knight aren't worth using.
You say that, also i'd rather boost Paladin and Holy Knight than scrap them, seeing how unique they are.

Oh yeah, I just remembered that I found this weird text glitch. Sheba still changes to the Tamer class just fine when equipping it, and it only happens when she changes to Tamer specifically.
Pics don't help me... i need details to replicare that. How many and which types of djinn did she have equipped?

Angel Mia is really the only one who will hit 40Luck
I'm assuming you know this false cause any other caster with access to a 130% Luck class can do the same.

I don't know the damage formula, but I don't think defense has enough weight to really be worth investing past 300 or even using a Tank Class past that 300 benchmark
There are no benchmarks in the damage formula. It's just a subtraction.

clear out the random encounters
why would you care about them? literally anything works... it's against bosses that you have to actually think about your class/gear setup

Unless I'm missing certain pieces of equipment
Yes. Once again, please use the editor. Titan Gloves, Big Bang Gloves, both Greaves.

You keep misunderstanding. Jonin being OP or best class is only your opinion, one i disagree with. It's not that i don't care, i just think you're vastly overestimating that class.

Pretty sure i already answered that, but no. Power bonuses for warriors are already balanced. There's no need to keep adding equipment.

why did Destroyer get Douse downgraded to Frost?
when you said you'd like more variance in psinergy lines i ended up counting them all. Frost was among the rarest ones and i decided that it fits destroyer better than douse (themathically).

We'll see if [Jonin] keeps a firm grip on that title once the next update is out.
You misunderstood. I never thought that Jonin was the best for the boys. You think it's the best and i find that questionable. I don't like that class, I'd always pick Chaos Lord or Shogun over it. Shuriken alone was too good and it got nerfed but that's it.
9  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: [RELEASE] Golden Sun Reloaded on: February 27, 2019, 11:53:43 PM
One thing that makes sense from the whole Jonin debate is that i should tweak the "weight" for atk and def when calculating stat totals (to balance classes). By making atk weight slightly more and def a bit less (as is should be cause atk is always more or less double than def), it turns out that i should, among other changes, drop the jonin's hp by another 5%. But that's it. 5% Hp is how much it is imbalanced so i really think that you're grossily overestimating the Shinobi line.

Also, i think shinobi itself is why you were having such a hard time against poseidon. Changing Piers to radiant and Felix to Psy champion made the fight a joke even though the entire setup was completely unprecedented for me (btw why miko jenna didn't have asteria's staff?).

As for debuffs, I did some math and I think I can drop the base recovery chance by 5%.

About Fire breath, i found the post cause i didn't really remember hearing about it. It kinda makes sense, i'll mull it over and it will either be in the next update or i'll tell you why it didn't make it.

EDIT (Answer to last point below) I never thought that Jonin has ever been anything near the best for the Isaac Felix and Garet. I'd still pick Shogun and Chaos Lord over it, and i've enjoyed using Leader a lot. I just happened to think something that makes sense math-wise, which involves reducing Jonin's HP multiplier by 5%. Shuriken at x1.2 was actually OP and in fact it only took me 3 castings to nerf it to x1.0
10  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: [RELEASE] Golden Sun Reloaded on: February 26, 2019, 10:37:01 PM
What i find really strange is how you both keep mentioning Jonin and nobody has said anything about Chaos Lord yet.

Shuriken has already been nerfed: you need to update, Maxi.

I'd like to note [...] I once had
I will always ignore any luck-related complain/suggestion/whatever formulated this way.
Not only about this mod or this game, but in real life as well.
A lot of things have low odds of happening but they will still happen. A random person might get struck by lightning while someone else's winning the lottery. But then what? I can't (and won't) tailor this mod for a 2%. Because if i did that, i'd be making a change that's worse for the other 48% and unnoticeable by the other 50%.

Think about it from the opposite perspective. Somebody fought Poseidon tons of times and never had any character instantly downed by Watery Grave. Should I boost the ID rate because i feel he should experience that? Obviously not.

Tomorrow i'll probably try to battle poseidon with that save
11  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: [RELEASE] Golden Sun Reloaded on: February 24, 2019, 03:14:07 PM
Just upload the .sav file. It's much easier
12  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: [RELEASE] Golden Sun Reloaded on: February 24, 2019, 12:44:05 AM
This just sounds like a baseless complain to me, so i'll say this once.

We're telling you (me and bpat both) that Poseidon can be beaten and you aren't even curious about what you might be doing wrong. You didn't post builds, ask for advice or talk about actual numbers (istant death trigger chance, luck-based formulae, anything). Heck, you didn't even bother reading my signature!

To sum it up, this is not how you (anyone) should give feedback.

Seriously, no boss should ever have Instant Death, because then it becomes more of a battle of luck than a battle of strength/skill.
Also, this is beyond wrong. Luck is a STAT. It can be manipulated. ID has a base 15% rate on damaging moves, which also means that multiple IDs have a <2% chance of happening. You need to ask for/know the numbers before saying "nerf this, nerf that". 
13  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: [RELEASE] Golden Sun Reloaded on: February 23, 2019, 11:00:43 PM
Poseidon is hard but not unreasonable since you have revive Djinn and Shade at that point. If anything, bosses tend to be too easy on average and Poseidon is an exception. He's difficult but absolutely manageable without needing to grind.
The only boss that deserved the slight nerf it received is the Flame Dragon duo. Everything else has been tested so much that is straight up impossible that something that "needs to be nerfed" still exists
14  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: [RELEASE] Golden Sun Reloaded on: February 21, 2019, 04:06:07 PM
And let's be real here, not many people will be grinding enough to hit stat caps.

Impact. 666 is enough to hit the cap
15  The Editor / Golden Sun Hacking / Re: [RELEASE] Golden Sun Reloaded on: February 21, 2019, 03:11:55 PM
Jonin has Z-tier defenses. That's why he can afford that attack stat: because as far as warriors go, he has the durability of a wet tissue. -20% HP and -15% def over the chaos lord is no joke. Warlord and Shogun are MUCH more well rounded, especially when atk cap becomes a factor. He is a hybrid and can go either way but i can see why it's easier to stick to the warrior side.

Further power buffs for Jonin and General are not needed: I already balanced them, each warrior can gain 60-65 power in each a single element.

Fox: Aw.  I kind of want to suggest dressing up in a banana costume.  No wait, that's a bad idea.

Fox: Gosh. This is like playing whack-a-mole! What's taking you so long with the bananas?! :D
February 28, 2019, 10:20:28 PM
Fox: And that other guy I thought for sure I saw a moment ago.... maybe he left again.
February 28, 2019, 10:16:29 PM
Fox: :O Wha-? I guess you didn't bring an army? If you plan on bringing a bunch, I would have suggested recruiting more people. Like me.
February 28, 2019, 09:57:15 PM
Average Wind Seer: I just reached the Island, but I'm planning on getting as many bananas as I ca- OH GOD!!! OH NO HE'S GOT ME!!! SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!! AAAAAAHHH!!! NO! NO! NOOOOOOOO-!! *angry gorilla noises are heard as audio fades to static*
February 28, 2019, 09:13:45 PM
Fox: Huh. I didn't know you like going on adventures, that sounds interesting. How many bananas are you bringing?
February 28, 2019, 02:32:28 AM
Average Wind Seer: a brilliant plan. I'll go get the bananas from that seemingly uninhabited island with a large sign with the letters "D.K." written on it
February 28, 2019, 02:19:23 AM
Fox: I have an idea. If it turns out they love bananas, we can get some more as bait to keep them here?
February 27, 2019, 03:00:14 AM
Average Wind Seer: They consumed so much of the banana that only the essence of the peel remained TT^TT
February 27, 2019, 02:17:50 AM
FoxYou don't see it in the trash can over there?  Maybe that was someone else's.  .... Wait, Essence of Banana Peel?
February 27, 2019, 12:06:56 AM
Average Wind Seer: nope, that's just Essence of Banana Peel that they left behind :(
February 26, 2019, 11:39:52 PM
Fox: That's unfortunate.  I think they left the peeling for you.  :/
February 23, 2019, 05:18:08 AM
Average Wind Seer: .... yes.... I was gonna eat that banana....
