    Ugh another month without anything exciting to enhance. I just did garnet and snow because.... because it was something to do.

    Also where the fuck are enhancements for
    Ramza
    Cecil
    DKC
    Gilgamesh
    Refia
    Agrias

    All were out by batch 3 in Jp. And no power creep is not an excuse

    Enhancement is mostly done to make unusable units usable again. Noctis and Yun is too OP to have enhancement, at least until more OP units got released.

    I would say power creep is a good reason not to release enhancements or OP units. It keeps things challenging. If they had released Rikku, Tilith 6* or WoL 6* earlier, it would have trivialized the trials that recently came out. Also, it would have made all those other enchantments for lesser units completely useless.

    Why no Wild Card!? I wanted to see an enhanced version of it. It has been a useful skill for me on some occasions. Still, if I can awaken some of Ace's abilities, I will. The problem is Firion's seem to be more useful in general.

    Finally my boy ace gets enhanced! Love his mp recover ability on my jp account. And tribeam laser dropping enemy light fire thunder resist by 75% is no joke

    Yeah, at this point their enhancements won't even be as good as some of the newer/awakened characters without enhancements, namely Cecil (vs WoL) and Refia (vs Tilith). Also, it doesn't really make sense that Ace and Seven got their enhancements when Cecil, Refia, and others have been around longer. I hope their enhancements get modified to compensate for the later release.

    I think the justification of enhancement is to (1) make unusable units usable again (2) but not outright OP.
    For (1) Cecil and Refia are very usable even as-is so they are not priority for enhancement. On the other hand, Ace and Seven are pretty much benched forever since their release so it makes sense to give them enhancement first. In fact, they know Queen is so weak without enhancement that they just combine her enhancement into her original release.
    For (2), that's obviously the reason why they don't release Ramza's enhancement.

    ._. Why you guys crying for the WIld Card to get an enhancement? I do not recall it getting an enhancement over on the JP version. You guys looking selfish (No offense).

    I believe these enhancements are good. May give me a reason to focus on Firion, but I am most likely will put my all on Elza and CoD's Omni Veil.

    Good points. Cecil is one of my most used units. If it wasn't for me being super lucky and getting Rem, there's no doubt I'd still be using Refia...until maybe Friday, lol. But I'm prolly just getting a little bitter because I was looking forward to their enhancements getting released already. Regardless, I'm definitely glad to get what's coming this week.

    @Lorenzo1389 My point is they were going to follow almost the same pattern as JP for the enhancements, so I do not understand why, regardless of Wild Card as a GL exclusive skill, for people to aim for him to get an enhancement. Maybe later on in the game, but not at this point. Am I'm the only one who saw this coming or what?

    developers kept reiterating to view JP and GL as 2 different games, so you can't really blame those with Ace to look forward to wild card's enhancement to be included. This will bump Ace up the rankings alongside the Top mages.

    i honestly was not expecting ace to get wildcard enhanced. i expected exact jp nhancements and am fine with those. ace is great with enhancements. his mp heal ability is very powerful (40-140 mp recovered for your entire team for 10 mp cost) and his tribeam laser is very strong. it is multi hit now and has a chance for a 2250% modifier! granted its a low chance but it still hits for at least the normal 280% at least and maybe even 420% or 560%. and it always reduces enemy light, fire, lightning resist by 75% to EVERY enemy. ace is legit with these enhancements

    Developers created global exclusive skills to entice players to summon and use them.
    Yet when it comes to enhancement, they are being left out. This doesn't sit well with me personally. It feels as though it's a half baked job of copying and paste from JP.

    On the other hand, enhancement existed in the 1st place to compensate for developer's poor insight when they first released an old character and realized they can't compete with the newer, better design one. Developers already learnt from JP what's working and what's not - for example, they learn Cecil is very powerful as a 3*, ever more powerful than what a 4* should be, while they learn Queen cannot compete with any 5*. So when they release those units in GL they took into account what needs to be improved (but they are unlikely to downgrade an existing OP unit for obvious reason, except Noctis since it was released in sync on both side so they can make a lesser version without technically downgrading an "existing" unit). Some of the changes are incorporated in the initial release, like Queen's enhancement moved to her starting skillset, and all those GL exclusive abilities/equipments usable only on those underpowered units. Others are handled by releasing their enhancements earlier or introduce GL exclusive enhancement.

    Back to your question, since they already took into account Ace's original weakness in JP by designing this GL exclusive skills for him, from their point of view this skill is already adequate to make him great from start so enhancement on it will be very unlikely, unless, well, they miscalculated again. Consider the existence of the skill itself to be a form of "enhancement" will make you happier. :)
