Post Prepare for another set of 4 new abilities, already released in Jap version, unreleased in Inter version, as i write this.

Gigant Slash - deals 2x or 1/2 damage of attacker's atk, disregarding enemy's def
Ability Lock - draining all of enemy's MP, thus disabling the ability to cast any skills.
Heaven Pulse - dispels all enemy's buffs (for Jap Maniac, its called Tenkai no Hadou)
Sonic Turn - evades enemy's phy attack (including LS, QS, and normal attacks)
*Gigant Slash will have same abbreviation as gold slime, so is Heaven Pulse with Hit Points.

Enjoy the wait.

Moved on to Brave Frontier, Angel

Post This thing helps alotSmile I've asked about all that I thinkTongue used to think SS was skill or stat stones I lost alot like that lol...the greedies never corrected me until I was out:/ and I thought Sd was sudden death:/

Also I've heard if hp and mp multiple ways...but starting off with original ff...I thought it was health points and magic power/points. I think hit points were originally values indicating how many hits you could take from any given enemy until games evolved to enemies having different power levels and your defense being figured in...then some people still called it hit points(stuck in their old waysTongue) even though it doesn't refer directly to an mount of hits anymore.

Have the decency to reply to a message some sends you.

You can always go hunt another 5*, even ace, but not another extinct.

There is a Good Samaritan award. Check giveaway section for more details.

I am NOT basing card value off power!

I think you're partially rit about health points, however I believe that hit points originated in the table top arena (D&D) and migrated into video games.
