not to mention the skill (Piety) which requires Resistant Souls...

If Piety is able to be cast on any class, it'd be nice if Resistant Souls could be cast on other Crusader class.


edit: guess they weren't kidding about love for spear saders o.o

cannon spear seems less pointless now.

allot of these skills sound pretty useful but damn.  I see they dont wanna break the sader tradition of crazy prereqs.  Insperation seems like a good thing for attack power based RG's but it needs magic based skills to learn. Lame.

- Where are the defensive skills? Where are the skills to be used with swords?

- These skills need more work. Some are very good (Earth Drive) and some are very weak and useless (Hesperuslit, Exceed Break).

- I really fear that those continuous SP draining skills will completely drain out our mana pool within less than two minutes.

- I hope to be able to keep mounting my old chicken.

I'm interested to see how exceed break and martyr's reckoning work together.  The more I read the skill description the more I want to say it wont affect it, but...
 
MR + Inspiration + Exceed Break sounds like a nasty combo :x
