windcurse is on a distinguished road

Making comboing is a focus in myth didn't really fix it, it was the same old same old except that Asuka was more useful and Arien became crappier. It's the focus on damage that ruined the game. Back then, moves would be more than "this move does more damage than that one but covers less area and has less cd"; for example, many of Tia's and Sieg's moves were used for utility rather than damage save for the special ones like Dfist and Backstab. Myth is the purest form of linearity and button mashing in the game, since it's the main focus of Lunia nowadays, everything centers around doing the most damage. Every skill needs to do massive damage and be unneccesarily long such as Kali's notes compared to Dainn's firebomb
tl;dr - get rid of myth
