That's why I said basic and int missions aren't affected. Newbies shouldn't even be doing adv or higher until they're strong enough. I do agree that the game needs to be more challenging. Are abyss and lord rewards really that shit, even though people still run them?
The only survival skills I would have buffed are Wind Guard being allowed to walk, Taunt massively buffed and learnable by everyone, Magic Shields compatible with Spellwalk (since Belisha and Yui doesn't cause stationary), and of course uncaps.
