I dont know whether I'm right, but for each elemental level, a char obtains +5 pow and res of the especific element.
Taking this in account I'd like to know a thing... If a enemy has these parameters:

            power         resist        lvl
earth       100           100          3
mercury    85            72            2
mars        85             72           2
jupiter      85             48           2

In battle, these e-lvl parameters could change the pow and res like below?

            power         resist        
earth       115           115          
mercury    95            82            
mars        95             82          
jupiter      95             58      

Ooor... these parameters would remain the same?


And taking advantage of the lulling... Do e-levels serve only to do this icrease and make the class determination? E-levels just change with djinns?

That's about right for the +5 per level bit, but not so much for the rest.

PCs have a base of 75 for each ePow and 85 for each eRes before levels are applied (with some slight variation to help decide on class priority/access). A Venus adept with 5 levels would then get about 100 Venus ePow and 110 Venus eRes with 75 in the other powers and 85 in their resistances. These are actually decided by a table that accounts for elemental levels 0-15 (I think 15), but the table seems to be incremented in a way that grants +5 for each level without having it done in assembly. One could totally change the table so elemental levels lower these stats if one wanted to.

Enemy stats, on the other hand, are more or less arbitrary and are given a table from a selection. As long as you keep the 0-200 range in mind for powers/resistances (I think), you can pretty much have them be whatever you want. A Mercury level of 20 would be possible with a Mercury ePow of 144 and a Mercury eRes of 27, for example. Of course, non-elemental enemies (like Briggs and such) seem to follow a trend of having 100 in every stat but their elemental levels. In other words, they completely independent of one another.


To answer your other two questions:
1. Not really. So far, we also know that they have a major influence in the status ailment success rate formula. They may do even more than this, but we don't fully know yet.
2. Pretty much, yeah. The games haven't yet been modified to let things like items affect them.

Hope this helps!

Oh yeah baby, £ me harder.

Fusion is just a cheap tactic to make weak Adepts stronger.

Sorry, I didn't understand whether the stats will change or not.  Sad

To basically grab the bare bones of the answer: yes for PCs/player characters, and no for enemies. Djinn/eLevels will move player stats along the table I mentioned, and you can set enemy stats to whatever you want because eLevels have nothing to do with them.

So e-level for enemies is related only with ailments (if e-levels have to do with it)?

Yep, that's exactly it! Even with the levels being related to ailments.

In fact, I'd imagine that's the only reason enemies have element levels at all.  For the PCs, it's what determines the character class as well, so it has a bit more importance, at least in the base code.  However, I think that basing it on equipped djinn rather than actual element level is a better idea.  That would also allow for one of us to follow up and create Element Level buffs, which could be used to increase ailment success rate.

Kain's right.

To prove the point... if you open GS1 in the Editor, Picard/Piers is named PC07,

Omx7: A shame that I only recently discovered this website. Hopefully, we see Golden Sun 4 in the near future.

Fox: Golden Sun Slacking Community = I like that, Misery! Perfect April Fools joke?

Salanewt: Oh hey Atrius, long time no see!

Fox: (Someone else discovered that, not me.)
August 12, 2019, 11:33:42 PM
Fox: So um. It looks like abilties in the class editor are being put back in as a byte for GS1?
August 12, 2019, 08:02:58 PM
Fox: Also, it seems most of us have moved to the Discord. In case if you were wondering where the forums activity went. Maybe come by and check it out. But it is just a suggestion, you don't have to.
August 12, 2019, 07:57:02 PM
Fox: I figured that was a possibility. If you are guesting, it is hard to know how frequently you check back. It's great to hear from you, though. :)   What have you been up to?  Is Forgotten Dreams still being worked on, or has that been cancelled? (I'd guess you don't have much time for it. It's been years since we've last heard about it.)

KingAmiti: Still great work Atrius :)

Atrius: This place was a HUGE part of my life, and even though I don't have the time that it really deserves to take care of it, I will love it forever, and never forget about it..

Atrius: If anyone wants to make a replacement site then go for it.  Although I plan to keep this place up for the foreseeable future, it isn't really maintained anymore.
August 11, 2019, 05:09:10 PM
Atrius: Sometimes he comes by and looks around without logging in.
August 08, 2019, 11:52:33 AM
Fox: Does Atrius still come here? He hasn't logged in since last year. Maybe it is time to create a replacement site so we can have our full encyclopedia... Then again, I'm too lazy. Especially to get all that done by myself. :/

ryancaesar12345: GS2 Animation Overhaul w/ Baseline  ips patch in golden sun 1?
July 03, 2019, 12:03:06 AM
Salanewt: There actually is a Jupiter revive... if you're using the Animation Overhaul patch. I think Caledor made a standalone patch for GS1 too, but you'd have to ask him.
July 02, 2019, 07:34:13 AM
Fox: So like... (just a thought)...  If we designed a script to compare times for speedrunning something... goalChance represents stability (I think?) ; If it is 100%, answer results in infinite, which means you can't have 100% stability. (Meaning you'd basically be skipping all item drops/etc.) 
July 02, 2019, 07:06:08 AM
Fox: (I still want to make sure the equation is correct, though... as it did include some guessing.)
July 02, 2019, 07:04:47 AM
Fox: Was thinking .... tosses = ln(1-goalChance) / ln(1-chance) = "chance" being a single-toss percentage probability (0.00 - 1.00) , goal chance being if you did more tosses...   So that's an interesting logarithm.  Just came up with it after some research/thinking... and could maybe be useful for general use.

ryancaesar12345: jupiter revive animation any?
June 24, 2019, 08:05:17 AM
Fox: Such a patch would mean you need to be careful with item drops, coins, exp, etc. Because those things would then no longer be an infinite supply.  Whether or not one uses it depends on what they want to do with it.
