These are subtle, but very effective changes IMO, making the Acrobat a lot better in several ways, both as a caster and as a warrior. It's the best offensive Mercury caster in the game now, which is good, as the majority of dual/tri elemental mercury heavy classes are mostly healers. The caster aspect of Acrobat is pretty similar to Guru/Worldwaker/Pure Mage with better BP but no healing,no revives and no buffs, but gets the warrior part of the class in exchange. Which was previously quite unimportant, thanks to the lower attacks rarting, and all other warrior classes also had better access to secondary utility, such as healing/buffing/debuffing. Being able to deal both physical and psynergy damage is a bit redundant, because it's just plain better to have one way of attacking and secondary abilities that benefit your party (Valkyrie and Warlord can attack just as well as Acrobat but can also buff/heal when needed). The Fire Breath change gave this class a much needed benefit in this aspect, but that's probably not that important, as every warrior class can now use Fire Breath, but with at the cost of losing strong bonuses from other helmets. Acrobat is mostly on par with Jonin (the dillema here is mostly whether Frost Card or not screwed up djinni is better) as a hybrid class, but only 3 characters in the game get access to Jonin. Acrobat also gets a lot of synergy with Maces, so Piers and Mia with Alecto's mace would probably be the best users of this class.
The agility drop could be a bit too much, I also second that keeping djinni only effects djinni only opinion.
You weren't right about the Bramble and Thunder, though. Both of them are Acrobat's only venus/jupiter attacks (if we're not counting the Backstab and Sabre Rain), so they are interchangable.
Chaos Lord, Shogun and Destroyer can also now equip the Dragon Helm for dungeons and clear enemy groups and Star Magician's balls a lot more easily. Certainly an interesting change.

I was actually counting Sabre Rain as the other endgame attack but mistakenly labeled it as Jupiter while it's Venus. I want to double check why I haven't already swapped them and if I can't find a reason it'll be in a patch in a few hours.

First thing i can think of is spreading out elements across item classes. The other 2 already main Wind for the offense (Ghost Soldier, Call Dullahan), so i'm reclutant to push Wind up for the third item class.

I figured Sabre Dance was left as Venus to make the class more attractive for the two Venus adepts, since they start with solid Venus power and it was an EPA even in vanilla. The class doesn't have healing, but you generally weren't looking for them to heal anyways.

I don't really need to have (nor look for) a reason for things staying the way they already are: that's the default setting. I do need a very good reason to change stuff though, and benefits must outweight the downsides.

Of course, of course. I considered those points to be arguments in favor of keeping the Sabre tree Venus, independent of their original elemental affinity.

Salanewt: We're more alive than the board implies; most discussion takes place over on the Discord server.
15, November, 2020, 03:45:06 PM
Salanewt: Haha, heya!
15, November, 2020, 02:07:50 PM
Frog: Nice to see this place is still alive...ish anyway xD
30, October, 2020, 11:10:23 PM
Salanewt: ... Actually, it's almost time for me to post an update on the forum. It's been coming along really nicely overall, and it was only a couple months or so ago that I added some new status effects to the game.
30, October, 2020, 11:08:41 PM
Salanewt: I need to get it done to start making progress on the parts of the AI Overhaul I want to start working on.
30, October, 2020, 11:08:14 PM
Salanewt: It's going well! I wanted to get more of my djinn reform done this week but I've been busy with other things sadly.

KyleRunner: Hi guys! How are you doing?

MaxiPower: first chapter of my golden sun inspired webtoon is now live. be cool if yas could check it out. https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/legacy-of-the-lost-dragoon/the-northern-reaches/viewer?title_no=508487&episode_no=6

Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: Being able to convert IPS files to text files to also supporting commenting, and convert back to IPS after changes.... sounds like a fun strategy? 
27, August, 2020, 10:37:30 PM
Salanewt: Hey, thanks! 
25, August, 2020, 12:59:22 AM
Foreclosure: Yo! Looking forward for this AI OVerhaul patch when it's finished :) :) 
19, August, 2020, 07:00:17 PM
Salanewt: That's awesome! I'm pretty good; been working on an AI Overhaul project and have made some nice progress in the past couple weeks; the goal for tonight is to add Deadbeard to GS2 and then I can move onto something new.
19, August, 2020, 01:14:56 PM
Awec: Ye not bad, just checked back in for updates on GS Reloaded really. Although now I'm looking back through some of my old forum posts, which is fun :D how are you?
19, August, 2020, 01:43:07 AM
Salanewt: It sure is! How have you been?
16, August, 2020, 09:40:57 AM
Awec: Yo nice to see this forum is still going
14, August, 2020, 09:06:44 PM
Salanewt: Hey! How goes it?
01, August, 2020, 01:31:53 PM
KyleRunner: Hello, people!
08, July, 2020, 08:57:11 PM
Salanewt: That awkward feeling when almost a quarter of a year goes by without anyone posting a message in this chatbox.

Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: I'm having a thought. So I know Atrius's editor is slow at saving sprites.... So I've been thinking.   I am considering another console program.  This time, for importing and exporting sprites/animations. Image files (for sprites), binary files (for animation data), and maybe binary or text files for Settings. Would certainly be cool if it works out. - Console programs are fun, when you can (at least temporarily) cheat out making a full interface editor for them. =P
25, April, 2020, 10:42:07 PM
Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: Tried to list those in order of importance, but anyway....
25, April, 2020, 10:37:59 PM
Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: GSHC, GS Speedrunning, /r/Golden Sun, GS United Nations, ToK.  Sixth one is border-line I'm not sure.
25, April, 2020, 08:00:21 PM
Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: (low as in <100)
25, April, 2020, 08:00:04 PM
Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: So while there are quite a few GS Communities out there. There are only up to maybe ~6 Discords worth even the consideration of joining, I think. Most of the rest of them have a fairly low member count. (Of which I can tell?)

Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: The Essential Age could be what it stands for?

Misery: Tea editor... that's a cute name for it
01, April, 2020, 02:42:48 AM
JupiterDjinn: Also my browser is sending two o f my messages srry.
01, April, 2020, 02:42:06 AM
JupiterDjinn: Just got the reply. Ok my question is: how can I get the tea editor on Android, because I already have an emulator. But no computer.
31, March, 2020, 07:18:29 PM
Salanewt: Sure thing!
31, March, 2020, 03:38:27 PM
JupiterDjinn: Can I have a question answered?
28, March, 2020, 12:50:13 AM
Salanewt: I want to shrink it down in size later, but yup!
