Elite Fencer shouldn't even allow you to chose which unit loses AGI in the first place, it should have always been random and if it gets returned to normal then buff every other LV3 unit in all spheres by 20 extra HP.
Exuse me mister, but in case you didnt got that, pinpoint (dmg and control)is a typical falkow utility. IT belongs there and for a very good reason. Falkow has a general wekness in attack power until it creates an excess of resources compared to his opponents in other spheres. The only way it can survive till then is spending the few attack/control power you posses efficient (=pinpoint).
I feel the community has some serious issues to understand falkow damage dealers when they just start to compare them to other units in other spehres. Yes falkow posses very good damage dealers. But unlike in gowen they are not capable to summon that dmgpower ruight from the start, but require resources invested first.
Urgant. requires 6 sphere levels in lawtia to have its kick in skill, while taking care that his auto (that is a resource geneerator) constantly drain your current floating sp, thus limiting the resources you could invest your field. To set up urgant you require ewither a good planned stalling to have your urgant be alive on the field over more turns, to enable that auto to kick in or a very fast trade of other resources to get the suruplus of resources early so you can use him.
Ryu an other good damage dealer requires being alive over a turn together with another lvl3 unit that can give hima status effect. baloma route: 2 field positions, 7 sp on the field unharmed over 2 turns, 3 extra spherelevels in gowen, Ex memraid route: same just without gowen levels (note it cripples a good skills attack power by not having invested in gowen sphere levels.)
bog: bogs trai make him mostly the last card set in game after that you basically loose any control over the game and the reacting potential of yours gets to 0 (which is a huge issue considering the returns, removals existing in game). Due to this you cannot play him alone. He requires a field.
Magic greadsword soldier: requires sphere levels to boost his attack power. This is actually very intresting cause i can make real calculations which this unit, about the surplus i need with my wk. Note all the field positions need to be open not closed at the time
To kill a jade carbuncle: I require hitting first (agi maniputlation),and either
a 3 sp on field and 3 extra sp in sl (sl6, mgs killing) or
b 6 sp on filed and twol field positions/field position advantage
To kill a guardian the best case is whith mgs:
I require an attack power of 80= 5 sp extra invested in sphere levels in addition of the 3 i usually need for putting out a lvl3
To kill an OPlate:
agimanipulation (he is fast)
a, a lucky agi roll, 6 sp on filed with 2 field positions and 3 sp extra spent in sl
b 9sp on field with 3 field positions
You need to understand that when you put a jade on the field measured to my attackpower have 3 sp more power worth on the field.
This is absolutly normal for refess to have a high defence power. In the past refess had to build up field and buff up the filed/ make the field attackpower finally start to count while your opponent cant break through the defence. But when a high defence unit is capable to summon serious dmg power without field requirement, it becomes a gowen unit: jade is for me first turn a gowen unit.
same reason I could imagine gon was slightly irritated first when seen crest blitz swordman as it doesnt require any serious resource investment/field requirement, just survival to constantly raise attackpower in a significalnt manner. (yet one could argue that his survivability and agi makes up for this).
Standalone allround units become overpowered in field oriented decks. The same reason why ruuca emana had to be nerfed: they were standalone gowen units in a field oriented sphere that usually has to fight for field and sp advantage. So ok gowen units in falkow are too strong I thought. If a sphere get units which have the qualities of the sphere they are weak to combined with their own, those units even out the usual weakness of the sphere.
But hey, now I see the same in refess with the new ex...
