      I didn't want to clog a thread so I'm leaving this random comment here. Company workers must be getting sick and tired of constantly receiving people from the worm-verse considering the myriad of other destinations in the catalog. Hell, some worker must be screaming internally: *Taylor Hebert again?! AAAAGHHHHHH!!* At this point, it's easier to count the stories on one hand that ignores worm rather than go there.

      Quick question, does the special ritual circle in the previous version of the catalog create cores in the people it affects?

      I noticed that you updated the document. Enlightened Talent doesn’t explicitly mention that it is a experience multiplier, so does that make it a flat gain that bumps you roughly up to T5-T6?

      Also, I’m giggling at the idea of Jaune Arc and his insane aura levels being boosted by this and Soul Talent. Ozpin would probably set up a breeding program
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        Don't think of the Advanced Talents' prices in terms of tier gain. I just figured 30-40 credits for each seemed fair, then opted for the low end of the range.

        Okay! I would appreciate a rough estimate on the power boost that it gives because the only mention to that end is drawing out your power like Goku... and I doubt you mean that literally.

        Just guessing, if it’s an instant power boost and not a learning multiplier... it probably depends on the person (like when Guru unlocks someone’s potential)

        Thank you, and sorry for bugging you

        It's more of an effectiveness multiplier, but I don't want to give a hard number because it would simultaneously be too powerful for (popular setting), yet so weak as to be worthless in (other popular setting), and the specific value would just be pulled out of my ass anyway.

        But yes, the Goku comparison is figurative. He's likely and simply the first ki user to come to mind for most readers.

        Speaking of the Copper and Silver variants, Extra as I read it shouldn’t be the copper version in MHA because most people don’t have combat quirks and thus the average person is blue. Could I purposefully take the copper version to make a character that has a quirk? If so, do I get to pick it or should it hypothetically be random? (I know the author decides at the end of the day)

        "Copper Extra in MHA to get a quirk" is an intended use. The quirk itself is up to you. Ideally, it should be something that plausibly exists within the setting, but that's a narrative concern.

        No, I mean full conversion morphs have true forms and human forms, is the essence reactor required to exist within human form, or can it exist only in the morphs true form? Or am I misunderstanding something basic?

        SwiftRosenthal
        I can only personally rate worlds that I know enough about, and even then it's more of an art than a science. If a world isn't on the list, you're expected to either use a thread search to find a previous rating for it or estimate it based on comparable worlds that have official ratings.

        Even the earliest versions at the very beginning of the rules doc's version history still separated "affinity" perks (not even renamed to talents yet) from the defense perks. Don't use the old versions if you can avoid it.

      SwiftRosenthal time for another round of 'ask Waifu Catalog questions'. Apologizes. If you visit a crossover universe, do you average it out (say one is 5 and the other is 7, does that make the combined universe a 6?). Also, what would you put Disgaea at? The waifus from there are mostly all 8s, so 8 or lower?

        SwiftRosenthal have you seen/watched The Vampire Diaries? If so, where would you place/rate it on the Waifu Catalog's World Ratings? I wanna say possibly 4 to 5 (given its a setting with magic users that can cast world spanning magics, but AFAIK, there's no super dangerous threats, beyond the vampire Originals and possibly the two True Immortals running around at the start of the series...)

      1. Shadowfire626
        Shadowfire626
        Last I checked the way love spot worked was that while it is rooted in a single feature of the face, the Fate wiki, from which the ability/skill originates, specifies that it is cast/takes effect the moment the target looks upon the users face. Too answer your question, likely no, but until we get word of god you could run with that concept.

      Hey, SwiftRosenthal, a couple more Waifu Catalog questions (apologizes in advance if they have been asked already): Does gaining a Falna (from DanMachi) boost your Waifu Tiers up at all? Not really depending on level, just having a Falna. And 2, where does Buffy fall on the World Ratings? I'm thinking 3 or 4 for the most part but possibly 6 or 7 for the higher end stuff (comics) and Big Bad and apocalypse stuff?

      Heya Swift, just had a quick question. If you get a Waifu to do the love confession, do they immediately get the full mental effects of "trust, love loyalty" etc.. or does it ramp up normally over 72 hours still?
      1. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        The "full mental effects" have largely already happened at that point. They *are* sincerely in love with you, after all (otherwise it wouldn't trigger).

      2. Jordisk
        Jordisk
        The root level of every Heritage so far is 100 credits, does that count as one of the Heritage Perks and thus push you to T7? Worse, the lowest-cost heritage perk (in the Transhuman tree) costs 30 credits, putting you at T5, literally one credit away from T6.
        Jan 3, 2021
      3. Jordisk
        Jordisk
        There is no way to cost less than 100 credits if the Root perk counts, and no way to cost less than 30, more likely to be higher, if the Root perk doesn't count.
        Jan 3, 2021
      4. SwiftRosenthal
        SwiftRosenthal
        Root perks count. The values for T6 and below don't matter for the two current heritages, but the root perks for later ones might be low enough to require them.

      Yet another question regarding Waifu Catalog (apologizes if its been asked before), but for Dragon Thrall (the one where you can turn others into dragons by having them ingest or take huge loads of Jizz) does it have to be done in Dragon Form or can you do it in an alternate form? Like, say, your base Human form?

      Another Waifu Catalog question (Sorry, but its such an interesting CYOA concept)... does Destiny Defense work against Coil's powers? I know its supposed to be some form of pre/post cog (and that would allow Trace Defense to protect against it) but I'm not sure which defense his power will bounce off of (if such a defense exists).

        Only your own personal age limit. If the target is under it, they become a familiar instead. Temporal Calibration lets you bypass this by going to a version of HP where "Hogwarts First Year" is 17-18 instead of 10-11.

        You can always just fanwank that you bought an older version of a too-young character or younger version of a too-old character, unless the older and younger versions of a character have different entries/waifu perks. Most current examples of that are Nasuverse Servants.
