Writing Advice: Active vs. Passive voice, what is it?
I've heard/read many people say that you should never write in passive voice, which at first confused me as I had never heard of that expression when I went to school. But I read a really good explanation on a site called themanuscriptshredder with example as to what it is:
Passive voice is a sentence whose subject does not perform the action.
“John was attacked by wild dogs.” - Passive. John is the subject, but the dogs are performing the action.
“Wild dogs attacked John.” - Active. Dogs is the subject and the dogs are performing the action.
Passive voice is often accompanied with "was/is", but be careful if you use the "search/replace" function in your editor of choice as they quite often are still needed. This is just a simple demonstration of why active voice is to prefer in general, but passive voice have it uses too so do not be afraid to use it from time to time - even if it's just in dialogues.
A Gentle Breeze
Single Effect: Status Ailment Resistance Up [40%] (Self / 3 Turns)
MLB Effect: Status Ailment Resistance Up [50%] (Self / 3 Turns)
TLDR: "A Gentle Breeze” has been outclassed by new Arc 2 memoria in the game. It might still be useful for you, but this mostly depends on what memoria you have (and probably how much money you’ve spent). Status Ailment Resistance Up at 50% for three turns is excellent though, and can be useful in a variety of situations so most players will probably want to keep "A Gentle Breeze” on them. This is event memoria for the event “A Voice From Beyond That Strokes the Ears” and it should be kept in the case of a rerun.
Review: “A Gentle Breeze” has one effect: Status Ailment Resistance Up. Status Ailment Resistance Up will decrease the chance of the equipped target to be afflicted by a Status Ailment. Note that even at 100%, it is still possible for a character to be hit by a Status Ailment. This effect will stack.
Normally, one will want to use a specific memoria to negate a Status Ailment, such as Anti-Curse if Anti-Curse is something you can expect to fight. But the benefit of Status Ailment Resistance Up is that you can use it in fights where multiple Status Ailments might be present, and also that-- specifically for Active memoria-- it means not wasting a passive slot on a Negate Status Ailment Memoria and using them for more offensive/defensive purposes instead.
Sadly, "A Gentle Breeze” has been outclassed by another memoria in the game, “Formally Deciding.” Both memoria have Status Ailment Resistance Up for three turns at 50% when max awakened, but “Formally Deciding” also gives 30% Attack Up as well, making "A Gentle Breeze” overall worse.
Does that mean you should get rid of "A Gentle Breeze?” Well, no-- as mentioned above, this is event memoria and its possible that one day the event will be rerun (although somewhat unlikely, as the event has been run twice at this point). Additionally, having two sources of Status Ailment Resistance Up might be a good thing, especially if you only have one copy of “Formally Deciding” but more than one character in the battle. Additionally, even if "A Gentle Breeze” is outclassed by one memoria, it still one of the highest sources of Status Ailment Resistance Up for three turns.
But overall, what you do with this memoria depends on you and your needs. If you have a few copies of “Formally Deciding” then you can stick "A Gentle Breeze” into your Memoria Vault Jail-- but if you don’t, then keeping "A Gentle Breeze” around isn’t such a bad idea.
