Why are these Steady Breath builds everywhere? What bothers me about them is a) They're too expensive for most people to afford unless you're a hardcore whale, b) 99% of the time, there's a stronger, less-expensive build for the hero than the Steady Breath build, c) It's just the same build copy-and-pasted over and over again, not even making slight adjustments depending on there hero, and d) THEY KEEP GETTING ACCEPTED.
Investment cost means nothing. The tier list assumes that resource are not an issue. Finally, if it works, it works. Steady Breath is a fantastic skill that grants extra Def (thus giving units better sustain), and most importantly, hastening the Special charge (which can allow the use for normally slow charge Specials like Aether, which can also give a unit better sustain, or Ignis, which can effectively be a nuke). These builds keep getting accepted because... they're good. They work. What's the issue here?
- To add to this, optimal builds were made first, budget builds and theme builds will be added, it'll just take some time. Saschb (talk) 21:59, 9 September 2017 (UTC)
- a) They're expensive, and properly tagged as "high investment"
- b) There are often less expensive builds, can't say that they're stronger, but they will be added eventually. Feel free to submit your suggestions on the build talk pages.
- c) If they use the same skills, they look similar, yes. But if that skill is useful on lots of units, it'll appear in builds for lots of units.
- d) They keep being good.
- In response to deleted comment, I'll have people look over the units you mentioned, it's possible some builds may have been hastily added. Builds capitalizing on units' inherent strengths, and such, will be added over time. It's an organic process, and showcased builds will always expand and change. Submitting builds yourself is the fastest way to make an addition, be sure to include a short writeup explaining what the purpose is, though. If a build is meant to utilize a unit's default weapon, improving on it with cheap inherits, make sure to note that down, so the reviewers know. Saschb (talk) 10:30, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
- Good to know, thank you, and I apologize for my former outrage.
