@Knight-Raime Hero is definitely simpler, but in a perfectly good and fine way. on JP server I extensively tested hero and (Rifle) phantom, and can safely say compared to hero phantom is like eating a bucket of razor caltrops. it's just un fun. Maybe rod or katana Ph is better, but the animation locks on all the rifle PAs on phantom make dodging when you dont have content timing 100% memorized impossible.
Most PAs at least let you cancel it with a dodge.
I'm looking forward to Etoile/Superstar and ESPECIALLY Luster. Luster from my research looks like a refinement of the attempts to make scion classes complex, while still keeping them easy to pick up and play, it has a ton of playstyles and depth but its not too hard to get basics down.
