    replied to Feeling Limited
    With my players, it's usually them that remember me they should roll limit. They have a blast with it.

    My guidelines are that while limit break is supposed to be in some ways a loss of control, it should a) make sense for the character, even in a 'the character lost all patience' way, and b) be cathartic to the character (and the player). Since there is a much bigger range for limit breaks than in the other editions, I can tailor a LB to the situation, or I can put it on hold until a good situatio presents itself. I don't go over myself to fuck the PCs, and so the players trust me....

    Let me try to show what I did when I was taking tough enemies - I did not need to use all the charms all the time:

    Initiative Roll: Flash Fire Technique + Full Excellency (used just once, if the first roll was good, the second roll was a safety policy): 11 motes, 1wp (it was before the final edition, would be cheaper).
    Gained Initiative(usually)? -> Fire Dragon Form: 7m
    Attack: Perfect Blazing Blow + Full Excellency: (9m, 1wp) - At this point, he had Dragon Graced Weapon (air), which gave the target -1 until the end of his next roll.

    Total Cost: 27m, 2wp...

    I don't know about Fire Dragon being useless. Yes, they get to spend a whole lot of essence in the beggining, and is outright deadly in the first turn. But it's hard even for a DB to be without any just like that - they have enough to use in the rest of combat. When the fire anima is at bonfire, their anima effect do 3i damage per turn on targets without hardness or crashed. Mixing it with Snake worked very well - both styles depend on being ahead of initiative, but have a wonderful synergy (+dex damage from snake with the DB Excellency re-rolls to damage)....
