    I guess it makes sense that being dead already helps Squigly avoid it for a second time. I am surprised, though, I must admit. I certainly expected her to have an offence focus. Maybe dragon charges have enough tricks up their sleeve to make up for raw strength.

    Double makes sense as that fits the experiences I’ve had with her thus far. She feels more fragile than Filia when playing, to be honest, but just because she’s trickier to tame.

    Double’s character ability is too random at times and that makes some of her variants too unreliable to be used.

    If only there was more control over which element she can switch to

    But controling it would make some variations be too powerful, like xenomorph

    Personally I think Double is fine. Her big issue right now is her absurd blockstun against Cerebella and Parasoul when they end with certain hits.

    If Double character ability did need some tweaking, it would be making Temple Tyrant and Nunsense feel more useful. Sundae School, Doublicious, and Immoral Fiber all have SAs which do not take into account the character ability at all which makes them more consistent as fighters.

    Xenomorph and Rainbow Blight have direct incentives to keep switching up and can be rewarded heavily with the right RNG.

    Temple Tyrant requires way too much luck for one of her SAs to be of use for the reward you get from it and Nunsense's SAs work opposite each other and even then one of them requires you to get hit with a debuff while at elemental disadvantage.

    Yeah the thing about double is a glass cannon
