Another Níu question
Lmao well here comes another one. I'm not gonna lie I've been reading her weapon wrong.
What I THOUGHT it did: you'll get 50% to which stat the enemy is buffed by. So if an enemy has +6 atk and +6 def then Laegjarn will receive +3 atk and +3 def.
What it ACTUALLY do: (sure y'all knew)if the enemy has +6 atk and +6 def then she'll receive +6 to all stats.No, I'm not sure how I got that conclusion, yes, I know I'm stupid. So if I'm getting this So if I'm getting this right if the enemy has +6 to everything then Laejgarn will receive +12 to everything right? If so that's really good.... situational, but very good.
If you read it carefully it's not really misleading.
Laegjarn's Niu says "Adds 50% of TOTAL bonuses on foe to unit's Atk/Spd/Def/Res during combat"
Niu's effect is worded pretty differently to Eirika's Sieglinde which says "grants bonus to Atk/Spd/Def/Res = highest bonus on allies...."
It's the same of what happened with Tatics skills, all that's needed is attention on each word while reading the effect
I've tested that in a laeg v sothe matchup, and that's correct.
Laegs comes with chill atk 3 so I was expecting to see the +4/4/4/4 and -7/0/0/0 combine to -3/+4/+4/+4 for a total of 9, giving a 4 point bonus to every stat.
Instead it gave me an 8 point bonus to attack, and enough speed to prevent getting doubled. That can only make sense if penalties aren't counted.
