Where is the magic stat?

  • Hacking method: FEBuilderGBA
    So, I want to know if there’s a magic stat somewhere in FEBuilderGBA’s FE8 editor, since I need it in order to begin working on my Shadow Dragon GBA remake. Sorry if that sounds like the newbiest question ever.

I’d also like to know.

If you install SkillSystems then the character / class editor add a field for magic. Vanilla fe8 does not have a magic stat - it just renames Pow to Mag if you have magic wexp.

Vanilla GBAFE essentially uses Gaiden/SoV’s system with its singular “Attack” stat powering both physical and magical attacks. It hides this by never allowing any classes to use both physical and magical weapon types, and changing the stat’s name and description based on which they do use, but giving a physical character access to tomes or staves will see those weapon types powered by their “Strength” stat and vice-versa.

I haven’t used SkillSys or the Str/Mag split patch, so I’ll defer to Vesly’s knowledge of those.
