Depending on the information you are looking for.

Does the first post explain why the Djinn were switched?

@Djinn(i) grammar = Yeah, I thought maybe you might have not known, which is why I mentioned, in case it is of interest. (And it is related to the topic still, but different.)
It is an interesting piece of information... Psynergy is also capitalized... and I'm guessing the same spelling is used for singular and plural. (Could be the same, just like how "code" is singular and plural... Although, I'd argue that "codes" is fair enough, since the way I see it,... if it can be easily understood, it shouldn't really matter. Heheh.)

Remember kids! Before you go on that interview, remember to wash your hands in teawater! *Coughs on hand* (Excuse me, I just coughed up a little teawater, so they're still clean!) You wouldn't want that hiring manager to be unimpressed.

May the force be with you!
Shoo! Why does it smell in here?
Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

I just finished a playthrough of TBS and you really nailed the difficulty curve in this game. I can't think of anything that was too easy or too hard except maybe Deadbeard and Fusion Dragon being too easy. I managed to beat Deadbeard at level 26 (no Break this time!!) and Fusion Dragon at level 28 for reference, though I think I could have done it at lower levels. Saturos and Menardi are actually harder than Fusion Dragon in my opinion but none of the bosses are pushovers. Hydros Statue was my favorite boss fight and probably the hardest. Attached is a screenshot of my very close victory.

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. Other than that, the game is still solid so far. King Scorpion was a great fight but Briggs and Chestbeaters were a little too easy. Briggs' squad spends too many turns doing nothing so I don't need to worry too much about healing. I've actually been finding Djinn harder than the bosses so I resorted to Poison cheesing against many of them like Blitz, Kindle, and Mud.

A general thing I've noticed is critical boosting items are pretty bad until very late in TLA. There is little reason to stack crit when you won't realistically pass 60% chance anyway, so I tend to favor items with better combat stats and using Ragnarok and similar Psynergy on my warrior adepts. I think a lot of the the earlier crit boosting items could have their crit values improved without being imbalanced since they will still have to compete with strong attack Psynergy and Djinn that are more reliable and deal comparable damage. Warrior adepts don't really care about burning a bit of PP on these attacks since they can be counted on to deal good damage.

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 ;)

I just finished Aqua Rock and I'm still not sure what Piers is supposed to contribute to my team at this point in the game. He learns literally no offense Psynergy better than Froth Spiral until level 23 where he can finally get Hail Prism, though that's only in his base class which is otherwise pretty bad. He's worse at both physical attacks and AoE than Felix until level 23 where he finally learns Hail Prism so he's been relegated to using Mad Blast and Healing Aura in Aqua Rock because he just doesn't have better options. He's tanky but that's about all he has going for him and it doesn't really matter when the other Adepts just go down instead of him because he doesn't do enough damage to kill anything. I'd like to hear other people's thoughts on how to use Piers pre-Hail Prism because I have no idea how to make him useful.

I just slap Piers under Mars for better ST physical damage or Jupiter to help out his speed. Admittedly, Piers doesn't really shine until you gain access to Tri-Elemental classes (or slap him under Tamer or Pierrot).

The Warrior Psynergy lists honestly baffle me, since in just about every class outside the Hyrbids have VERY low PP Cost Psynergies (Jonin has Shuriken which is still fairly cheap for strong damage). Even when spamming the strongest available Psynergy in battle, the Mages almost always burn through their PP pools FAR faster than the guys do (especially in during the Eastern Sea if you snag Luna Shields for Piers & Felix). Obviously there's not much that can be done here since the Warriors typically AREN'T supposed to have super strong Psynergy, but maybe giving Jenna & Sheba a PP Regen armor piece during the Eastern Sea will help balance out that weird disparity of PP Sustain between the Warriors and Mages?

Also would it be possible to make a Psynergy that dispels Debuffs from the party? It could use the same Icon and graphics as Break, since they have similar functions. It'd be a handy way to shake off nasty debuffs without having to fight so hard against a constant stream of debuffing (like Aviamander's Star Mine easily crippling the party with its Resistance Debuff, making Ward not strong enough to keep up). If you think having it affect the party would be too strong, simply make it ST to force players to be mindful of who's most important to return to their normal stats. (e.g. Dispelling Jenna's heavy Defense & Resist debuffs so she's not at such a huge risk of dying over the next few turns, or Dispelling Felix's Attack debuffs to help shorten the battle.)

Aside from endgame if you learned all your Psynergy, Mages don't even have stronger Psynergy than warriors aside from Piers who has a horrible Psynergy list in all his classes until around level 27. It all depends on what level your adepts are. For instance, Felix with Clay Spire/Tornado hits a lot harder than Jenna with Flare Storm/Briar which makes him the better caster until Jenna learns Volcano/Searing Beam.

The Flare line is just plain awful. The Thorn line is also pretty bad, but nowhere near as awful as Flare. Student Sheba has a pretty stinkin' unfair advantage over Miko Jenna, since Plasma and Ice are the 3rd strongest Psynergy lines of their respective elements. Meanwhile Miko only has Fume for comparable offense, which isn't good for random encounters, and Thorn is incredibly underpowered for Miko's only means of AoE damage.

Those combined are why I either put Jenna under Monk for stronger damage + Wish, or Jupiter for some very powerful Psynergy and Paralyze.

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

Average Wind Seer: *angry gorilla noises that roughly translates to "Stay the [redacted] off my island and don't touch my [redacted] bananas"*
March 04, 2019, 03:06:07 AM
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....
February 23, 2019, 02:47:39 AM
Fox: steal*
February 23, 2019, 02:47:31 AM
Fox: Did they still your banana?
February 22, 2019, 02:32:19 AM
Average Wind Seer: hecc my ba- oh snap there they go :/
February 21, 2019, 10:14:10 PM
Fox: Shh... Don't scare them away.
February 21, 2019, 07:20:30 AM
Average Wind Seer: shocking, isn't it
