So it's been talked about a lot amongst us. People want Ike's Eruption/NS mode to charge differently. I see a few ways it can happen, and I believe that each of these could work well. Option 1- All damage dealt increases charge level. This allows Ike to fight normally, and be rewarded for simply hitting his opponent as he normally would. I feel like this is too easy... Option 2- Damage from SWORD ATTACKS only. This isn't much different from the first. But instead, he simply won't gain damage unless the attack is sword based. As the sword is what gets NS Empowered, it makes sense. Option 3- Damage from Specials only. The difference here is that most Ike users don't rely on using Specials. I find that using them creatively in combos is proper justification for being rewarded. However, trying to abuse them will still get you punished so it wouldn't be something to just spam. Seeing also that Specials get the most notable changes in NS mode (huge dmg buff on Eruption and QD, Aether healing, and the notorious NS Counter) This is the one I'd personally prefer. Option 4- You like it as is. Waiting is Okay by you. I personally feel like if option 3 is chosen, that NS attacks shouldn't deal as much self damage to Ike as he now has to work for his buffs.
