I think need to remember that Agnes has probably hasn't been fighting for 7 years. Her being Pope is pretty much just a high tier desk, so her being rusty from being out of combat so believable to me. Otherwise she wouldn't need guards.
Anyway on to other news:TGS live demo demonstration!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU12X0u1CbE
-First off, dungeon design has been TOTALLY
revamped! It's no long isometric or fairly drab looking and more atmospheric.
-The music (or what little i could hear) so pretty awesome, the new Asterisk Holder boss theme (I think) in particular sounds really intense.
-Apparently there new class in the demo called Wizard (we couldn't see it's design though) which had some interesting new spells like Fire Mist (which seems to do continuous damage kinda of like poison) and Lightning Hammer.
-Did I mention that music is awesome?! :D
-Jean and Nikolas are definitely playable or at least temporally anyway.
