    Default Character Abilities!

    Character
    Ability
    Yuna Cure
    Yuna Regains 20HP at the cost of 20 points from her MAGD stat
    Cloud Braver
    Cloud enters a Default state a skips his current turn in order to do 2x damage on his next turn, regardless of whether his attack deals damage to his opponent or himself.
    Lightning Returns
    Lighting returns half of the damage done to her on her opponent’s last move at the cost of 20 points from her STR stat.
    Ashe Aero
    Ashe casts a damage over time attack that does -10 HP damage to the opponent at the end of their every turn. Cost of Aero is 20 MAG.
    Firion Shield Bash
    Firion blocks the damage from the next stat choice used by his opponent.
    Laguna Scatter Shot
    Laguna takes -10 points from his opponent’s stats at the cost of 20 points from his SPD stat.
    Rinoa Angel Wings
    Before a match begins Rinoa can rearrange her stats by a factor of -20 (i.e. she may take 20 points from any of her own stats and add it to another stat). She may only reduce her stats by 20, but she can add those 20 points to any stat of her choosing (-20 from STR, SPD and MAG for a gain of +60 to MAGD). These changes must be PM’ed to an adjudicator before a battle begins.
    Zack Haste
    Can use one consumable item and still make a stat choice in one turn.

    IMPORTANT - If you are using an ability which relates directly to a stat on the board, you must have that stat in play to be able to access it. ie - Yuna can not use Cure if she has already played her MAGD stat.

    IMPORTANT - Abilities use up one turn, so a stat or item can not be played in that turn unless otherwise stated. They can only be used once per battle.

    Not always! As of course removing from stats to others can severely weaken you in many areas - even if you are really strong in one. It's all about knowing how to balance. If you look at the Rinoa stats you'll see that she has 80 across the board, so she needs to be able to move them around a little!

    Rinoa is a very balanced character, but can become really strong in one area if she plays her cards right. I'm still finding it hilarious that Ashe has the highest defence among all of us.

    Firion's shield bash sounds useful, but Zack's haste can combo really well with a good stat choice.

    Can you use an ability multiple times, or is it limited to one use per matchup?

    Night Fury and I had a really close practice match with Ashe and a Villain and her ability did juuust enough to win the match for her. It is indeed a great ability.

    Aero does indeed sound good. Guaranteed damage each turn? Sounds great, and you can do other moves as well while it is in action.

    Hold up: is Aero -10 EVERY turn, or just -10 at the beginning of the opposing character's turn?

    -10 at the beginning of every turn would just be cruel.

    Also, double-checking:

    If someone uses the MAG stat before I have a chance to use Aero, I can't use it, right?

    But me using it doesn't cancel the MAG stat (meaning that my ability really isn't a good one to use against high MAG opponents, as I'd weaken the trout out of myself).

    Correct on all accounts Jinx. And yeah, I think Aero works the way poison does in Pokemon, every time your opponent takes a turn they will lose 10 HP (is that even how Poison works? xD). But they do not lose 10 HP on your turns.
