Anyway. What do you think of Linkle's gameplay Seras?
Just got her first mission, and first think I thought was "isn't this what DW8:Empires Lianshi should have been?" What do you think? Think they should scrap the current Lianshi moveset and go back to crossbow style based on this for DW9?
I haven't played Hyrule Warriors Legends, but, after watching the video you posted the link to, I thought that:
1. I like the mandarin duck hooks a lot, but I don't think their moveset fits Lianshi (I remember an official source stated that they gave Lianshi the crossbow because she, despite being a bodyguard, isn't trained in martial arts. The very martial mandarin duck hooks contrast with that first statement, which was quite defining of Lianshi's persona, by the way);
2. I would immediately give the crossbow back to her, a modified moveset would be fine (the mandarin duck hooks can be given to someone else they fit better, like a new character);
3. YES!, LINKLE'S MOVESET FOR LIANSHI! Or something similar. I absolutely agree with you that this is what DW8E Lianshi should have been.
And that isn't even the first time KOEI showed they can do nice things with crossbow movesets (see Hokuto Musou/Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage).
Also less enemies rendered at once, which caused a lot of bitching, yet I'm still getting 1500-1700 kills per level.... Yes, that's totally WAY too few.
