    Seiken Densetsu 3
  1. Seiken Densetsu 3 Sin of Mana - Discussion

    I'm glad I could help! Interesting that even with the exploit being only half as effective it felt just like normal. Maybe navigating the ring menus really does take that long. Here's hoping the fix worked! (Does that mean you can overflow the cast ready destination by sitting in the ring menu indefinitely? Hmm.)

    1. A "counter" happens when you land a normal attack (or level 1 tech) against an enemy that's just about to hit you. This is pretty difficult to do intentionally, in my experience. 2. By holding down the Y button when selecting a spell you can cast spells on the "wrong" targets. You can cast heal light on the Carmillas, for example.

    I was using the menu exploit on enemies. The screenshot I showed was just to point out the location; there were enemies in the room beforehand. Hence the loot chest.

    That's a good thought. I'm fairly sure no npcs are around when I attempt the exploit in other locations though. (The presence of the signpost near Maya does seem to make spells insta-cast.) It worked on this screen just outside (and to the right of) the dwarf town too, for example. It also worked on the following six screens down the tunnel to the right there. Except the ones without any monsters, obviously.

    It is indeed that road! And ordinarily you would be right. But in Sin of Mana you can learn Fireball from Wisp, probably in a bid to make Angela more useful during the portion of the game between Fullmetal Hugger and the Jewel Eater.

    It's happened literally every screen I tried it on, though I couldn't give you exact locations of every test. The exploit works on the first screen left of Maya for sure, as well as one screen up/right of the entrance to the Cleft of the Earth. I definitely tried it at least five times while level-grinding in the area and it worked every single time. To be clear, I have also tested casting fireball like a normal person several times and the spell does have a cast time of several seconds. If you'd like me to try something specific as I'm playing through the game I'll happily give it a whirl.

    I tried searching for "cast time", "bug", and "menu" in the topic and didn't notice anything, so at the risk of attracting ire I'm going to point out a (hopefully new) bug. The "time spent in ring-menus advances the cast timer" vanilla bug seems to be back even though it's mentioned as hopefully-fixed in previous versions of Sin of Mana. I don't know whether other time-freezing effects advance the cast timer yet, I'm still fairly early in the game. I'm running the 1.200 patch and tested it by casting Fireball with Angela right after learning it on the Golden Road: Cast fireball on your favorite rabite, bring up the X ring menu, wait about ten seconds, drop the menu. Spell comes out instantly.
