PostSubject: Stat Boosting Rules   Fri Apr 21, 2017 11:52 pm

Certain techniques may boost a character's stats above their current levels. These techniques are generally referred to as boosters. Boosters are separated into two categories: Generic and Unique. Generic boosters are those that use chakra/stamina and in some way increase your character's stats; these can be of just about any Skill and may be a constant as in Lightning Release Armor or temporary as in most Taijutsu techniques. They can also be styles of combat. Unique boosters are more rare and will generally not burn stamina, but may have other sorts of costs associated with their use. These are techniques like the Eight Gates or abilities like the Sage Transformation.

Boosting Guide:
Generally, boosters will follow the guide listed below. However, these are for boosters that only boost and have no other affects or weaknesses. Adding increased costs, requirements, and weaknesses can potentially allow for growth to the boost, while adding effects, reducing costs, adding more stats to boost, and generally making it easier to use will typically reduce the boost. The list is:
E-Rank: +
D-Rank: ++
C-Rank: 1 Tier
B-Rank: 1 Tier+
A-Rank: 1 Tier++
S-Rank: 2 Tiers
In case it wasn't clear already: combining three pluses creates a full tier.

When using more than one booster technique at the same time, the boosts will stack with each other. Just be sure that the two techniques can actually be used together; a character can't simultaneously perform two different Taijutsu moves at once and expect to combine both boosts. Similarly, there are boosters that simply don't mesh well with each other. Think about your combinations before using them, and if you're unsure, ask a member of Staff for clarification.

Stacking Limit:
Generic boosters that are combined in this way have their stacking limited to two tiers higher than the base levels of the affected stats. For example, if a character has D-Tier Strength, that character's Strength can then only reach as high as B-Tier, no matter how many generic boosters are stacked together.

Unique Booster Stacking:
Unique boosters are different from this in that they usually improve the parameters of the body either without causing physical strain to the body or doing it in such a way that forces greater heights upon it. These techniques are extremely rare, but they are the exception to the two tier stacking limit. When using a unique booster, the stat that is boosted is considered to have its base level increased. So, when that character with the D-Tier Strength uses a unique booster to bring that Strength on up to B-Tier, it can now use generic boosters to hit as high as S-Tier Strength!

Breaking the S-Tier Limit:
Now, you may have seen mentioned in some places on this site an X-Tier of stats. There are a certain few techniques that are tailored to bring a person up to those levels, but this is not easily done. Any boosts that would bring a stat beyond S++ are reduced by one tier before being applied. So, in order to get your S-Tier stat to X-Tier, you'd need to use a combined boost of at least two tiers. This tier deduction also applies to the boosting limit in that your character's base stat must be S-Tier in order to hit X-Tier, or S+ to hit X+, or S++ to hit X++. Unique boosters are generally the best way to go about this. Pushing stats beyond that point is normally not possible and will be noted in the select few, powerful and rare abilities that can.

There may be certain techniques which function in such a way that they reduce your character's stats. These techniques are called Debuffs. A debuff can be a general reduction over the stat as a whole or specified to affect its boosted level. Those that target whole stats have smaller reductions, but will decrease the target's base level stat, thereby negatively affecting the target's ability to stack boosts. Those that target boosted stats are generally larger reductions, but they do not affect the base level and only work against a stat that is being boosted. The difference between these are simply Base Debuffs and Boost Debuffs. The general guides for the different types of debuffs are listed below. Remember that a technique's specific requirements, effects, weaknesses, cost, how many stats it targets, and so on can either positively or negatively affect how powerful the debuff can actually be.

Base Debuffs Guide:
E-Rank: N/A
D-Rank: -
C-Rank: --
B-Rank: -1 Tier
A-Rank: -1 Tier-
S-Rank: -1 Tier--

Boost Debuffs Guide:

E-Rank: -
D-Rank: --
C-Rank: -1 Tier
B-Rank: -1 Tier-
A-Rank: -1 Tier--
S-Rank: -2 Tiers
