Wait a minute, are people still not doing her easy ass 31% combo? Damage isnt the issue to me, its her moves having use.

Explain to me wtf is the point of the staff reflect amped? or even vanishing winds amped?

What is this combo? F21 combos don’t really count lol

Why is she (afaik) the only character who's throw KB launches instead of just giving the straight 32%?
Shang, I think it's because they don't want Zoners having the ability to frontload that kind of damage off of a throw. SO I think their thought process is if you get that & they have defensive bar they can breakaway & you can easily go back to zoning, but they both can get higher payout on those if the opponent can't break.

Yes, he/she is talking about F21 combo. With a bar for 31%.

lol. Just like many of her other specials, the exact intent behind it seems confusing. At first I thought the amped version ONLY launched, but I actually reflected a 2nd projectile with. But that utility seems unreliable. It also seems like it might be intended as a fake out between BF2 and DB2. they might try to poke when they realize its not hitting them, only to get launched by the amp?

Typical Jade stuff :confused:

Yet Skarlet does the 30%+ unbreakable on BOTH throws. You can go back to zoning if it was just straight up unbreakable damage too like how I do with Baraka whenever I land one unless it's a character that isn't optimal to zone.


Well yes, her Krushing Blows deal about one third of what anyone else's do. You get hit with Kitana's, that's 30%, for example.

Shadow kick: Why should it be three when it's two right now?
Amp Butterfly: 1 bar for pushback? What? lmao

I agree with the rest. MB Butterfly should be -13 and launch, meterless should have pushback on block so that it's safe and be -5 or so. This single change alone would make Jade an overall playable character.
Because the two right now relies on the opponent getting hit back to back with shadow kicks and the requirements reset any time you do anything other than walk, block or land the shadow kick. The landing of three amplified shadow kicks would mean that you would have actual tangible control of loading it at your own strategic discretion throughout the set and you could end combos in the shadow kick crushing blow for a much larger damage payout as opposed to how it is now. It has a two fold benefit. All of my recommendations are intended to put her crushing blows in line with others and that buffs the damage too.

For example if she punishes you with Back 3,4,3 shadow kick crushing blow she'd get 34% similar to what Sub gets or if she does her overhead combo into it she would get 40%. That change would make it a super viable crushing blow and make people lose huge damage and make people respect her because of the ability to threaten much more strongly

Give Shadow Kick more range it’s ridiculous how short it actually is . Compared to slide . Why can’t AMPd shadow kick do 200+ if kitana just got buff on square combo that can ? Other than that she’s ok . She’ll never be top tier but this would make her decent solid fighter

A small part of me likes the KB for Shadow Kick as is cuz against people that know about it, it gives me a ton of leeway to just walk back & bait stuff out or gives me a little extra room to walk in when I’m playing Jaded. It prolly should be changed to something more reliable though

@Espio yeah I forgot about Skarlet

Shang is a real zoner, though. Jade just eats KB sandwich if she tries to zone.
