Granblue Fantasy: Versus version 2.21 patch notes

Check out the full Japanese patch notes and balance adjustments for Granblue Fantasy: Versus version 2.21 here. The English patch notes are below:

  • Yuel has been added as a playable character and additional weapons have been added to RPG Mode. Additionally, updates and bug fixes have been applied to certain modes.
  • Master points in Ranked Match mode have been reset, and a new rule has been added where any players who lose -10 Master points will be demoted to SSS.

General

Yuel has been added as a playable character. The content is available with a separate DLC purchase.

Yuel’s Battle Concept

  • Yuel is a rushdown character who excels in quick close-range combat.
  • Her skills such as Starlit Sky and Hanaarashi are rushdown attacks that can close the gap foes from mid-range. She also has various tools that work well at close range, such as Foxflame with its quick recovery and Hien:Homuragaeshi with its invincibility properties.
  • Yuel possesses a good balance of skills specializing in close range, but her key ability is her Unique Action, the Third Dance stance. While in her Third Dance stance, she is unable to block, walk, jump, or use her standard skills. However, she can pressure her foes with a unique set of tools that allow her to perform quick steps and special attacks.
  • On top of that, any high-hitting attacks will automatically be countered with Eye of the Sparrow, so this can be used against unsuspecting foes. If her foe then adjusts to account for Eye of the Sparrow, Yuel can cancel her Third Dance stance and use her standard attacks again.
  • Finally, she can transition into the Third Dance stance directly from her skills as well. In this way, she can go from Starlit Sky to Third Dance stance and attack in one smooth motion. Utilizing the timing of Yuel’s Third Dance stance effectively during combat will be the key to victory.
