Hey up everyone.
And welcome to a potential new segment on my blog. The purpose of these posts kind of delves in to my hidden thoughts / interests whether it is in; gaming, anime or even manga. In other words it shows what gets my imagination going. These are self-imposed or hypothetical questions and are not part of any challenges or awards.
For this topic I’ve chosen an obvious and a fairly straight forward one, since I’ve gone all gaga for fairy tail.
So as the title asks;
What if / I did; have a magic power from the fairy tail series?.
I didn’t need that long to actually come to a conclusion or find an answer to this question. As much as I would like the more cooler dragon slayer magic, or god slayer, or some elemental – mold – based magic etc that is found in the world. It might surprise some, and not others. And to be fair, I’m not really sure how popular the magic ranks amongst the fan base is. I know one of the character ranks really high though.
So the answer to the questions is:
Re-Quip or the Exquip.
Let’s take a look at what it is;
This Magic allows the users to store items in a pocket dimension so they can easily summon it at any time, even during battle, which gives them a high level of flexibility in combat. However, there is a limit to how much the pocket dimension can store. Requip can be used for simple or combat-related purposes. Some users may just choose to use it to change their clothing. More skilled users are able to Requip different weapons in battle, and it is even possible to Requip armors in the midst of battle.
The more notable users for this type of magic is:
Essentially the actual magic itself is passive, it has no offence / defence capabilities whatsoever. To put it in another way; it’s situational. So what makes this type of magic as powerful as it looks?. Well this actually comes from the fact that Erza and Bisca shoving powerful armour and weapons in there – not much to it really. The only thing that makes it notable, is just how fast you can change armour / weapons. Erza being very proficient at it. During the midst of battle.
So why the choice?. Well it has more to do with the fighting style I would have. You see, if Erza is more offensive / balanced in terms of attacking and defending. I’d be more defensive. If Erza armour had a DEF of 2,000. I’d aim for 4,000. Straight away you can see the difference between the approach we have. In essence, I’d be carrying far more armour with high DEF than she would.
So I’d be a walking / mobile fortress so to speak, couple with defensive skill set, average attacking power, I’d be able to hold my own for a long time. In other words, I’d be a guardian, a male equivalent – of sorts – to Erza in the fairy tale world. The down side however, is very evident. I wouldn’t be as flexible as Erza would be. Whilst she would be able to mix and match her equipment on the fly, I’d be more narrow. Whilst she struggle to find a weak spot to my nigh defensive capabilities. I’d be more on the back burner, dragging out the fight. The biggest argument to me would be is; diminishing return. Just how much DEF is needed when they already struggle to get through my already high DEF from what I perceive as a low tier armour.
To counter that argument, I’d actually create armours with different resistance and mobility. Yes, taking a leaf out of Erza’ book. By lowering my DEF I can equip armours with high enough DEF but focus more on mobility. I’m not a walking tin can basically xDD.
For the record guardians are a sub-set of the knight class, they are traditionally seen as a counterpart to the warrior / knight role.
So there you have it, I hope you enjoyed this little post of mine. Let me know in the comment section below what you thought of this post, and if you did have a magic power from the fairy tail universe what would it be, if you have seen it?.
If not then what would you choose?. You can check out the wiki page for fairy tail to find out the different types of magic.
