Yeah I don't see an obvious change on force either. +30HP is nice, but barta is still very, very weak...
On Lv15 Bujin from Cacoon quest, even against an enemy that's weak to barta(ice) elements, my Barta can deal up to 570 damage per shot, while Foie can deal up to 453.
But remember Barta cost 1 more pp, it is technically single target spell (since it is really hard to get enemies aligned in a straight line), while foie has a big AOE. Also, Foie can lock on on weak points.
Why force did need a damage boost for single target, the power difference between the techs is actually quite good, barta is just a harder spell to use. It really relies on you being able to counter to build your marker has fast has possible. That bujin run i got down to 46 seconds before this update hit using barta, and was able to do solo Petta's UQ in around 8mins, which was roughly the same has what i could do when it was weak to lighting
I don't think the power difference is good enough, not even close.
250/240 is only 4% improvement if we disregard elemental weakness, which can be offset by the fact that Foie cost 1 less pp. If you consider pp recovery effect, it is a difference berween ~7pp and ~8pp per cast, which can be huge while bossing.
Just think about base pso2, how much weaker Gizonde and Rafoie are, compared to ilgrants.
