Before I say anything; I would like to say that while this post does present a negative opinion on Djinn Storm, I am in no way trying to force my way of thinking onto others, these opinions are just mine and if you think differently, please feel free to leave your thoughts in the replies.
I've been playing this amazing game for years and while I love it, there has always been 1 thing that I've always felt was a big mistake on Camelot's Part; The creation of Djinn Storm.
See, the thing that I hate the most about this move is from a development standpoint; Djinn Storm comes off as extremely unfair and frankly is something I feel no player can properly deal with.
This broken move literally drains away all your Djinns in 1 fell swoop which not only means you have no access to using Djinns and Summons, but since Set Djinns actually boost your stats and grants you Psynergy, this move undoes all that in only 1-turn.
Now normally, I would be fine if Dullahan was only an enemy in the main game, but since he can appear in the Battle Mode, that to me is overkill. At least with the Doom Dragon they actually did make it so you cannot encounter the creature in the Battle Arena but Dullahan? That is ridiculous.
Whenever I am playing the Battle Mode and I see Dullahan show up, I instantly know I am done, especially if I am very far into the challenge.
For this reason, I have actually considered hacking my Rom of Golden Sun The Last Age and straight up removing Djinn Storm from Dullahan because I genuinely do feel like this move is extremely unfair and kills the enjoyment of Battle Mode.

What do you guys think? Is Djinn Storm truly overpowered and extremely unfair or doesn't it bother you as much as it does me? Let me know as I would love to hear people's thoughts on this. Take care and all the best.

Lol, it absolutely is; it's a pretty bad ability overall. It's a lazy move that was made because Camelot was running out of time and needed to create a move that would create artificial difficulty for the end of the game, rather than balancing late-game bosses to have some natural challenge to them.

Doesn't stop me from joking about making that Dullahan's counterattack move though. :P

Oh yeah baby, £ me harder.

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

If there's no way to defend against it, then yes... it does sound overpowered.
Either remove the ability, or remove Dullahan from battle arena.

I wouldn't mind having a set up where Dullahan can call any enemy you've already defeated into battle. (Until all the enemy slots are used... so if you defeat one, it gets filled with some random enemy next time Dullahan's turn comes.... etc.)

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 very much remember hating Djinn Storm more than any other attack, and knowing that if it was used at the wrong time I was pretty much guaranteed to lose the fight.

Salanewt: Especially since there might be a v0.5.1.1 in the near future, if any bugs are found by people playing the demo.
November 11, 2019, 03:26:38 AM
Salanewt: Oh yeah, so for people who aren't aware; v0.5.1 of the AI Overhaul is available on the Discord, but I'm delaying the creation of a downloads page + topic until I finish the demo.
November 02, 2019, 12:05:31 PM
Fox: And yeah, there's a topic for the Discord. in News & Announcements (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=2831.0)

Fox: Went to go study some German a little earlier. (Using duolingo to give it a try.) ... And. Huh. German capitalizes all nouns? (Not necessarily pronouns, though.)

thenightsshadow: Didn't realize there was a Discord at all.

Fox: (Which I guess not having Special badges in inventory was by purpose.... So I'll ifnore that bit. Just whats with the dup Halloween badge in inv?)
October 31, 2019, 07:18:26 AM
Fox: Question about badges = Why do I have two of the same Halloween badge in my inventory... but not on my profile? And by two, I mean the Honk badge is not there.

Fox: (Ofcourse it would be capitalized if it were the name of a system, and anytime that system would be referenced... but I'm more going with why we *never* see Psynergy and Djinni not capitalized.)
October 31, 2019, 06:49:58 AM
thenightsshadow: Yeah, just kinda got an email out of nowhere and it reminded me.
October 31, 2019, 06:42:40 AM
Fox: and main reason I said "not intended to become part of English" ... was because I thought of words like "animals"... and they can technically still be lowercase at times.
October 31, 2019, 06:41:17 AM
Fox: group/type/thing/whatever
October 31, 2019, 06:38:54 AM
Fox: Not saying it is exacly that... but it is a thought, at least.
October 31, 2019, 06:36:41 AM
Fox: I mean like... when you're naming a person... the object of the game is to make up a name... (Although, I think capitalization is more for formality.) ... so... when you're coming up with a name like Psynergy or Djinni, I figure it is a similar approach. Just more for a group rather than a single being.
October 31, 2019, 06:30:01 AM
Fox: "part"..... but that too, I guess. Also, there may be scenarios where item and status are lowercase.
October 31, 2019, 02:41:25 AM
Salanewt: I think it's more likely that they are nouns used to refer to mechanics in the game.
October 30, 2019, 11:43:58 PM
Fox: I wonder if part of the reason Psynergy and Djinni are capitalized is because they were made up words not intended to become a part of the English language. xD Would be good enough for me. Maybe I can take inspiration from that some time.
