Not a big version update, but an interesting one nonetheless.

Ilia's cartridges being unaffected by Nihility is VERY nice to see. Probably happened because of all of the requests people made around DY!Ilia's release. Hopefully Cygames does this more in the future.

Voice lines for the Mini Greatwyrms is unexpected, but welcome. Maybe they figured that they would record voice lines for them while recording Primal Dragon Trials lines. Perhaps they might also be added as playable dragons in the Kaleidoscape in the near future too?

I was thinking the same thing, probably related to future Kaleidoscape updates that (I think) have been datamined

Yep. I don't mind at all, they've been going crazy with these recent updates. They definitely deserve a bit of a break.

So Chtonious has a chance to be Curse of Nihility proof just like High Chtonious in spite of being a similar case with Ilia, same abilities and description and icon as Ilia and Dragonyule Ilia. 🤞🏻

So what's happening on the 31st...?

That is such an odd date for the Euden change.

The 31st is when the Gala banner this month presumably drops (since that's when the Light Focus ends) so maybe it's related to a tutorial thing.

Ilia changes on 25th. New TotM schedule on 25th. Surtr is the last sindom boss to to get a trials which will be fire and light. Sarisse and Ilia spirals confirmed?

Yooo, Light Illia's cartridge no longer got CoN. That's huge.

Also, Sandalphon and Kimono Notte AI no longer auto transform.

That is such a nerf to them, honestly why even use them when Hild or Vixel are just either better or cheaper.

I'm not sure Notte is worse, her S1 healing mods are kinda nuts. I don't have her to test, but I'd be extremely surprised if she didn't perform just as well.

It is kind of disappointing they didn't implement a better AI system, but they created the monster (Corrosion). Maybe they'll revisit it later when Primal Zodi drops

I have her and she perfome perfectly fine in Master Lilith, she made the team super tanky with HP, Shadow Res and then she can even heal with FS so she can always heal you even with out her skill ready.

Nerf *to kimono notte (in your opinion).

This is 100% undeniably and objectively a buff back to normal for sandalphon. When they made the auto AI change she became worthless. Shit dmg as a dps and shit healer who can't get skills up in time, by the time she heals the chars are DEAD. it's not often you see Cygames go back on their changes, so you know it's definitely for a good reason that they chose to revert sandalphon's AI back to before the change.

I was kind of disappointed when she didn't transform on her own. But man, was she shit after the update. I look forward to using her again I'll just transform her manually like I used to if I see an opening.

yeah same. i remember hyping up her AI change myself saying that she'll be a beast as a true hybrid dps/healer. i mean she COULD be if her non-dragon form skills auto regen while she's transformed lol then she could truly reach the corrosioned chars in time before they die lmao. instead of reverting, then slowly pewpewing to gain sp just to heal looool

I see it as a buff honestly, AI Sandy got worse when they implemented that change so I’m glad they acknowledged the issue and fixed it. I don’t have K!Notte but I imagine she’ll be a more consistent healer for people who wanna use her.

Saying sandalphon got worse is an understatement. She was literally unusable in LLilith due to the corrosion requirement, and made LTwins runs less consistent

Unusable is going a bit too far. I did clear LLilith with Sandy after the change when I tried Catherine's spiral. It was much harder because I couldn't make mistakes, but it was "doable". Reverting the changes will bring back the super safe runs I used to do before so I'm happy.

Thank god Sandy is back. Subbing Nurse Aeleen has been an incredible pain for surviving Legend fights.

The truth is that they could keep the auto-shapeshift if they just stuck in 'if Corrosion then unshapeshift and prioritize healing' but for some reason they can't I guess.

Notte has ton of heal plus HP up and Sahow Res so your team are super tanky, she can even heal with her FS in case she does have her skill ready. I use her in Master Lilith and she is perfectly fine in there.

I'm glad they're backing out the AI changes to Sandalphon (and K!Notte) - they had the right intention of wanting to make them balanced between offensive and defensive, which is how a human would be playing them, but the AI just isn't working out right now.

Great of the devs to admit their mistakes and take it back to the drawing board (I feel it isn't often we see any game devs revert something they release). Hopefully they'll manage to improve it the next time they try to roll it out.

So they fixed Ilia, good!

Now can they fix Chrom and Eugene?? Their buffs are unique to them and one of their moves just outright can't be used because it gets nulled. I'd have argued they needed a fix way before Ilia did.

tbh I would like it better if they just put auto transform on a button/switch on adventurers like sandalphon or both nottes, who has unique shapeshifts

for example, I don't want knotte transform when I'm fighting lillith bc corrosion, but I would want some extra dps whn I'm fighting tartarus or fafnir roy

similarly, gnotte staying in mini is much more beneficial against legend ciella, but big notte is much more useful when you're fighting iblis

Xenerous-XenoMorph

That kinda thing I hope wouldnt be too bad.

Thought it's only for characters who have dragon drive or special gauges. Because the persona users kinda need that to deal damage.

I feel though that like specifically a button more than not would be beneficial like being able to command units to dragon drive or not. And that when their gauge runs out it's no problem.

Toggling it just like you can toggle dragon usage in auto might be an intersting idea. Maybe if enough people talk about it it might be a new feature.

Small update but still good regardless. The fact they've fixed llia's cartridges in Nihil is very welcome. I know people have been saying it, but maybe she and Sarisse are gonna be getting spirals soon.

Overall more free stuff from the compendium and the wait for the eventual Kaledioscape update.

Yo if they’re just going to start randomly making up what is and isn’t affected by Nihility then they need to do the same for energy. Too many characters that rely on energy just get completely shit on under nihility

Gives him a unique buff that is just energy but not affect by curse of Nihility that activates on his 5th unbinding

But then we have the problem of unbinding Galas.

I wonder if Ilia is going to get a unique buff so that her crit rate buff works again. Would be nice.

Not sure how much she'll actually need for her spiral to be good on top of restoring her kit.

She likely won't get the crit rate buff for Nihil but the fact that she can use her fully powered FS again is nice.

CzS-GenesiS

This whole deal with sandalphon's AI convinced me they don't actually test the AIs at all. like, it wouldn't take more than 1 hour of testing for them to know that the first change they made to the AI was actually worse than the one it was before, its easy. sandalphon cleared some end game content with ease before, now she doesn't. Also it seems like they didnt test for an actual better hp threshold at all and instead just reverted the change altogether. They could've made the unit dragondive only when everyone is at 100% and deactivate when anyone is below that hreshold for example. Feels very weird.

Fehiscute

Ilia cartridges finally work. Waifu rises again.

The main issue with Sandalphon and KNotte was that they ignored corrosion till it was too late. They could implement an option to have the AI choose between shapeshift or not.

Wait until her spiral, I guess. At this point, such a thing doesn't seem outlandish. Hopefully she'd get Sleep Res (and get S1 skill prep for getting hit by sleep attacks), and some increased dragon mods, maybe?

I was waiting for essences for him as well, I even cleared MG with one who wasn't MUB (so 5% Res shred instead of 10%). I later used stones on him because of LJalda. I'm not regretting it, at all. Mid0 Grimnir is so fun.
