What do you think are the best skill uses of Optimization?

Besides Ricochet Laser and Aura Cannon. In an arsenal with at least 2 optis for reasons besides 2 on 1 ing a tag team that just had a partner knocked out.

This might be non-intuitive, but what about level erase? Orb/Amulet-users notwithstanding, if you can keep your opponent's level low (2-3 is probably most effective) you might be able to outspam their shields even with Opti. Plus, you have the added bonus of being able to pull the environment pending situation.

Maybe something like...

2x Aura Cannon
1x Reincarnation
2x Guard
2x Dragon Slayer
2x Quantum Decay
2x Exhaust
2x Lack
1x Diabolical Trick
1x Tiger Strength
1x Dash

Since Opti rounds down, you could probably get away with having only 3 aura yourself if necessary. You'd in principle have enough attack power to crush people with Aura Cannon, but Dragon Slayer could take care of outliers (Psychic Wall; with some luck Reverse/Change Course/Gust). The only thing I'm not so certain about is Lack...maybe that can be divided up into a third Dragon Slayer and an attack or something.

I did say besides aura cannon. ;) yeah opti makes it more flexible and quantum decay helps keep vibration moves from being used.

Some of the stand outs are probably the Nature +1 moves like ice/ lightning sword and s blade. Entangle and pin down with correct aura regen for infinite stun. Probably willo and judge of anubis. Restrain can rack some good consecutive hits and then take a.way opti as well.

Totally forgot about that, :P

The nature stuff is a cool idea, but I guess the problem is that you're only doubling the uses you get from those skills without making them more powerful. They're still walled by FoI or if unboosted Iron Skin, Angel's Wing, and Wall of Current especially. You might have to be tricky and pair them with Shield Breaker...


Psycho/Optical/Nature

2x Ice Sword
1x Storm Blade
1x Lightning Blade
1x Rock Shot
1x Psycho Burst
1x Fortress of Iron
1x Gust
2x Glacial Wall
1x Purify
2x Shield Breaker
1x Eliminate
2x Optimization


So basically once you can freeze them out, you can start to get to work with Storm Blade/Lightning Blade. With Opti down and enough erase-play, you can probably get their last capsule with Eliminate if necessary. You can think to use Shield Breaker as an entry to Psycho Burst if you're getting walled by a relatively defensive arsenal.

Interesting using Purify with Ice and then locking them into place for a follow up erase move if you don't want to go on an Ice Sword spree.
