- Bloodletter Stab deals 5 affliction damage per turn, but the duration of the skill is decreased to 4 turns, down from 5.

Time to rock the ladders again. <3

I think the reason why people are loving this balance update so much is because it handled a large number of characters at once, and with some pretty revolutionary changes.

This is very good, but we'll have to really keep a close eye on everything now.

There's a bug with meditation somewhere. I got a 30 hp heal every turn indefinitely with it, that wasn't canceled by hikaru's stun.

So what exactly was changed about Tori aside from the fact that she can no longer heal when she has her skill that keeps her from being killed? In my opinion it was a nerf on her. Not a rework/buff. Thats the only thing to change.

Surely is nice to see so many things getting shaked. But we know that we'll have to watch what will happen now. Some changes were necessary and have a small margin of error, meaning that they will probably work: Ryu, Jyouzu and Jomon ones.
The others, however, we don't know... I'm positive about Nobuo and Ken. But I'm not sure about Youko (maybe becoming little used), Hikaru (with a skillset full of expensive moves and cleansing water running around, he can face many problems... you should have given Fire Nova a cooldown) and Tori (the most waited rework and the biggest doubt in this BU).

By the way, Karasu is watching us...

I can see Tori being used a lot less.

Prepare to see her win-loss ratio hit the floor.

I must say I find Tori's update to be a little bad in terms of charges and her healing.

I disagree with Jyouzu. Jyouzu is going to sky rocket. If I had to name the best move in the game, it would be Blood Letter STab. Now that it's reverted back to it's original state, Jyouzu is going to skyrocket.

Sorry, but I don't think that 5 affliction for 3 turns will make a so huge difference (considering he already used to deal 5 damage and used to increase damage). Some chars deal the same 20 damage instantly for the same cost... Anything great was changed... He'll be paired in the same teams as before, but just a bit more frequently. His teams will still win and lose for the same reasons, but will be a bit more easy to win...
If he goes over the balanced zone would be just because someone was losing purposely with him before the BU. Because I can see his win ratio increasing just few numbers now.

^This, completely.

Jyouzu has basically been returned to his original form, without the piercing.

It's not so much the difference it makes to HIMSELF as a character. It's about how much more quickly an enemy can be spiked off now when you combine BS with other character offense.

Combine Bloodletter Stab with WoO and Hallucinogens, and that's a bonus 20 damage per turn FOR FREE. And that's only counting one person attacking the afflicted character.
