@Zenaku-Lodam said in Phalegs unbalanced design and the unfair nerf of our characters in the boss fight against her:
- list itemPhalegs unbalanced nature and the nerfing of our characters in the fight against her.... I have noticed that my lvl ninety etoili does less damage to phaleg only one hundred k per combo, but in ultra hard or even divide im capable of popping out one million to three million in a few seconds. But with phaleg my dps is massively reduced to nothing, next it the inconcistancy of i frames in dodges, i have mastered dodging and avoiding getting hit yet when i here the proc that i succesifully dodged she still gets the grab. Furthering we cant use dark blast, mag, or even photon arts against her. Yet in the games statement "we can finally go all out...No holding back" Yet we have our damage reduced, cant use or photon arts, dark blast, or mags, our i frames are iffy, and my etoili art for if i do take fatal damage i revive and am invulnerable for five seconds never activates. Next is her five million health pool and the short amount of time to beat her. I have noticed the only reason i lose to this boss is...time i dont have enough five minutes to dish five million damage is unfair when we are nerfed so drastically yet phaleg can three shot a lvl ninety etoilie. Honestly SEGA should fix these problems because honestly im annoyed that my kit is reduced so badly in this fight. Its not balanced and honestly i find it annoying that someone thought the phaleg buff was a good idea, I have witnessed thousands of my friends just uninstall this game for the soul reason phaleg is such a botched fight. Heh not like any ones gonna do anything about it mean poop, they let scam bots run wild on there servers with no repricussion.
While I don’t deny that some people still find this fight difficult, a lot of this is straight out wrong. Phaleg doesn’t have a damage reduction against her. I was doing more damage against her than uh hard risk enemies, and divide quests can get a huge damage buff depending on how many people are doing. The only time she has a damage reduction, is if you try to use the same weapon for both phases, has she resist your weapon you used in the first phase, in the second phase. You get around this though by using a second weapon.
She doesn’t have iffy iframes you can dodge or counter everyone one of her attacks, many people have done it. So in the case of this fight you haven’t mastered dodging.
What do you mean you can’t use your mag or photon arts??? Everything on your mag still works, the attacks the auto actions, even the SP auto action, and you can definitely 100% use photon arts. I’ve never tried dark blast here, but that was something that was introduced in ep5, so that may be the reason you can’t use, it also may be intentional disabled, but either way with our current equipment you should be able to outdamage your dark blast. I can’t speak for the etoile skill, but it should activate Iron Will always worked here, and that’s is a very similar skill.
Sounds like half your trouble is a gearing issue, etoile should be able to take more than 3 hits, I was able to take 2 to 3 hits on my force with ray units back when this was first released. and you shouldn’t be timing out with our current gear.
This fight when it was first released, was designed to test players skill and mastery of their classs. The whole point was not to get hit in the first place, and to train you in the ability to read and learn enemy attack patterns and to make sure you could use more than one weapon. For all of this this fight isn’t unbalanced it does exactly what it is supposed to do. I should point out this fight is completely optional, so seems odd to stop playing a game over it. And you’ve witnessed thousands of your friends uninstall this game??? How manny friends do you have??
