Dresspheres

Dresspheres

Full Throttle (Paines Special)

General Description: Paine’s Special Dressphere relies a lot on heavy damage; kind of expected since it runs at "full throttle". In any case, most of Paine’s skills are used for physical damage as well as to pierce elemental weaknesses or to, in a few cases, cripple enemies via ailments. The two others parts of Paine’s Special also vary quite noticeably in their roles, unlike the other Specials’ who tended to be somewhat similar. The Sinistral Wing mostly is used to support Paine, and does so by boosting your stats and lowering those of the enemy as well as healing you. Meanwhile, the Dextral Wing tends to sit there and use a variety of ailment-inducing attacks to further cripple the enemy, though it can also heal some HP. Overall, Paine’s Special Dressphere provides the most variety and can work well against most enemies; despite "bulkiness" (as far as physical-vs.-magical Defense is concerned) or ailment resistance, you’ll always be able to do something. It also has the highest offensive stats among the Special Dresspheres; Paine will hit 220 Strength at Level 99, for example, 35 points shy of the max.
