Well, that’s more sigils for another line! Without the runes this dragon is (was?) a pretty warrior who may just be solid against Fire Temple Raid but nothing more.
I don’t like the spell change either. Lion’s Rage which is crucial for this warrior damage is triggered later (slightly, but still). That means more time wasted until Leos can kill things or use his shield for protection, because it delays Lion’s Rage activation.
Also the runes are completely wrong. Leos has one active spell. ONE. And it’s an instant healing shield. Equipping the new runes would be detrimental to Leos since he can’t heal as often because the spell LAST LONGER. So runes are basically just good dust.
I shouldn’t care that much. I shouldn’t. It’s the resurrection of a Dragon I earned years ago and loved, one of the two or three Dragons that definitely look catlike (with Balahm and Nydryr). But I do care because that’s my only Expert Obsidian Divine and I have fond memories of it.
I’m heartbroken over what you did to my Goldenboi.
