since I pulled W and weedy already I have some stuff left over is swire good

>>292941
A at best 36% atk buff for melee ops surrounding her for 30s with a 45 sp cost on a on hit generation.
Not really.

>>292941
Swire's commonly regarded as one of the worst 5*s because she's part of a shit archetype (Support Guard, which consists of her and Dobermann right now although I'm not sure if Whislash ended up being good).
She has a good base skill though, for the control center.

Whislash without skill active makes Blaze go from 1.2 atk time to 1.1~ attack time and with s1 active (3x boost) it goes to 0.96 attack time.
So a 8%~ dps increase from having Whislash and a 24%~ dps increase from base with skill but only 14%~ from just Whislash being out.
Also get a 42% def increase from the skill.
It's fine I guess, but only works on 3 block units which limits your choice unless you use 2 block and meme with Nian's S3 to get the full boost and I do feel there's better choices for buffing/debuffing
unless the decently fast cycle is what you are after.

When W/Weedy was first announced on CN almost a year ago, I looked up all upcoming banners and operators and planned my rolls for an entire year. Now I don't know what is coming up and the resource I used for planning hasn't been updated since then. I have no idea what good operators are coming in 2021 or how to budget my rolls. Any suggestions for a resource with banner/event dates and operator info other than the shitty Gamepress and Aceship.
>>
>>293204
I got weedy and elysium, but no W. Not bad for just free rolls. Will I ever get a chance at a Blaze banner or Elyfalla banner in the future?

>>293354
Why didn't you buy Ejya when she was in the shop?

thorns is probably next, hes good
next is surtr and shes literally the most broken op in the whole game

Here's a quick look at some operators that we're getting sooner or later.
Nobody can say for certain when a banner will appear - the wikis guesses are as good as anyone else's.

Can they cool it with the music being pretty fucking awesome?

Honestly I have her e2'd and she's my main ST medic but I can't say I've really been saved through her talent or skills much if at all, but having the option is always nice.

Also Weedy just came home, so hype I got all the rate up units, and time to suffer if we do get Blade once this event is over.

>>293766
Eyyy congrats. I got her off a "I have gambling issues and must pull" roll.
I can't wait to be free of 1-7 so I can actually get the chips I need to promote people and take stock of what I have left over and can start working on the next set of ops.
>>
>>293767
Maybe she's come to cheer me up after the bathroom ceiling just collapsed and I spent 2 hours cleaning it up.
I have everything I need to promote her so I'm doing it immediately, just need some extra skill manuals.
>>
>>293769
Man, maybe that's why she came home to me too, dog made a mess twice inside today.
I'm sure I could promote her too right away, but I want to follow the order I've set out for myself, plus taking stock once I finish up with the current m3's and E2s will let me double check who I need to promote for my base now that I have weedy for the factory.
>>
>>293771
She senses cleaning
I still have about 400k LMD left so I'm not too worried, I'm in the "man I should E2 more people" phase rather than the masteries one and I like W and Weedy.
>>
>>293778
She senses cleaning and using a proper tool to do it too, even got parts for my central vacuum today too.
I'm sitting on 3.8 million lmd right now so I'm not strapped there at all, if anything I'm tempted to skip E2 Amiya for now so I can diverse some resources into getting Weedy and Lisk ready for Blade.
>>
>>293780
I did use a lot of cleaning materials.
>not E2ing your faithful bunny right away
shameful
>>
>>293783
Honestly I was just planning on E2ing her so I could use her true damage s3 for stuff like Patriot but with how things are looking I'm kinda expecting them to just spring CC#2 on us after this event ends, so I'm kinda thinking of pushing the ops I want for that forward faster and then evening out the ones I temporarily skipped over once that settles down.
>>
>>293784
I see, well she's a decent caster anyways due to her setup.
I'm going to go wipe down the shower now, peace out mate
>>
>>293785
Pretty much, but I already every 6* caster except Mostima so I'm not really suffering there.
Clean safely and make Weedy proud. I'm going to go molest my bed and dream of Beanstalk's crabs.
>>
Anons I've never planned my roll. I always did 10 roll on whatever banner is available for free 5 star when I've enough originium. Did i fuck up big time? Should i start to plan ahead and save my originium like a lot of anons here?

It's all RNG anyway, why care?

>>
>>293803
Nah, it's fine to always roll for the guarantee. Only rolling beyond that is necessarily something that has to be carefully considered.
>>
>>293803
Guarantee is a noob trap, yes you should be saving your rolls after you got a solid roster
>>
>tutorials hype up aoe damage
>high single-target dps almost universally outclasses aoe
>high multi-target dps is comically broken
>>
>>293803
Depends on the units on it and if you want to save for something later.
If a banner has say, Franka, Reed, Swire 5*s and Skadi, Shining, Nightingale, Ch'en, Mostima, Hoshiguma, etc. as 6*, then it's a bad idea. Those units are either common in the shop or are lesser quality.
If a banner has say, Lappland, Specter, Projekt Red as 5*s and Eyjafjalla and Silverash as the 6*s, then hot fucking damn you better roll on that. These are amazingly useful and are among the best in the game. They do appear in the shop, but it's rare.
>>
>>293919
It's because AoE ranged damage is slow as shit. AoE melee is actually quite good for the most part, you have busted motherfuckers like Blaze and Specter in there.
There's some AoE ranged units that have unique effects like Shirayuki who are useful because of those effects, and some that are heavily specialized like Ifrit who are stupidly powerful, but by and large AoE ranged units are slow, excessively costly, and by the time some of them even attack the enemies have moved apart already. AoE ranged units are meant to handle large clusters of weak enemies bumrushing you like the Desert stage in CC with the acid slugs or that one GT stage with ~75 light-armored soldiers.
In addition there's "single target" units like Eyja who effectively do the job of AoE ones far better and for cheaper.
>>
>>293429
The outfit description implies this is future Beagle who will be an elite operator by that point.
>>
>>293803
If you're still a beginner it's fine, even encouraged, to roll for the guarantee.
But at some point the amount of operators that you never gonna use is going to pile up and at that point you should start saving for what you want.

I generally see Specter used for her s2 over her damage, as for stealth detection we should be getting blade "soon" which gives us Scene who's bots all have stealth detection in a nice range.

>>
>>294312
No, it's not worth the boost to Specter's attack to waste tickets on Skadi, Specter's top ranking because she's extremely durable (self-healing, high bulk, S2 makes her immortal) and allows for stalling several extremely powerful enemies that oneshot everything else, her being an AoE guard is just icing on top. Silverash is still busted as fuck with his crowd blasting potential even though he has fallen from the top spot so yes go for him, but not for his stealth killer ability because that's a very niche usage and he's not usually used for that.
>>
>>294312
Consider that Skadi's deployment is often very temporary and she's going to be on cooldown much of the time due to her role as a reduced redeploy boss-killer block 1 guard. She's not very helpful to Specter.

That's assuming they don't do something weird either, as we did get W before the actual anniversary date for us too.
Ideally we get that banner around when we got Nian's and then the next limited cn gets we get on our anniversary and shit maybe starts lining up.

>>
>>295147
Originium is used to buy skins and the level up packs so if you are f2p I'd save it for that.
Top op is relatively rare but you should see it one every month or two if you are actively recruiting.

>>295167

I've gotten 2 in a month and none for 5 months.

I must be lucky then because I've averaged about one a month overall, and when we got the achievements and I did 3 months of recruiting in one month I saw 4 top ops total.

Yes, you are very lucky. As far as I know it's just one of the random "combos" when the game decides to generate a 5* combo.

Senior operator is rarer because it shares its chance with the other guaranteed 5* tags.

I believe that Top Op is also included in that actually, which is why some people get it twice a month and others get it never.

Neither are that good. Pick whatever you need at the moment.

Indra has no guaranteed tag combos while vulcan has several, pick Indra if only because she's considerably rarer otherwise.
Both are mediocre units.

She's the best general purpose slower because of her talent and both her skills are great for different situations. I have E2 Angelina and Suzuran and still bring Istina along for any stage that needs slowing (for instance, stages that you're supposed to clear using only ranged units). But that's all she's good for, so if you don't care about the minor difference it makes you should just raise her higher rarity versions.

>>295925
>Amiya
Is she really? Also don't really think Sora deserves to be there. Rest of the list is fine, I'd add Whisperain, Kafka, Robin, Mayer, Scene, and Broca.
>>
>got elysium from daily free roll

>>
>>295946
>Is she really?
She's the most consistent source of true damage we have in the game so she have value there.
>Also don't really think Sora deserves to be there.
I'd put her low on the priority list as a whole since she needs to be maxed to see her full value but she's one of the best buffers for multi-hit/ attack scale stuff.
>Whisperain
I forgot about Whisperain, she seems okay but I don't see much value in her over just taking Shining since people are likely to want to have both 6*'s upgraded anyway.
>Kafka
She seems good too, possible enabler for some dumb Blemshine stuff, but the person I saw trying that didn't seem too impressive.
>Robin
She looks like potentially the best welfare unit we have gotten so far.
>Mayer, Scene
Both good summoners for different reasons but they can be hard to use if you don't like them and they don't really see much 'meta' use outside of the rougelite event.
I am personally a fan though so I have Mayer's S2 m3'd and use her when I can and I am planning on doing the same to Scene when she arrives.
>Broca
I think he's good too but for most people he's likely just going to be overshadowed by Surtr once we get her for aoe guard arts and Blaze for just general aoe guard most of the time.

And since we are talking about future units:
>Iris
Caster version of Firewatch with her s2 and her s1 is a smaller version of Ceobe's s2 with a range change, seems quite worth to me.
>Beanstalk
Sniper vanguard that maxed out has 455 attack and crab has 404 attack itself, both with 1s attack time.
Only real disadvantage she has is you can't move the crab once you place it, gotta retreat bean herself, otherwise with the combined attack from her and the crab and her 150% attack scale boost on attacking anything the crab is blocking she absolutely can punch above her rarity in terms of damage.
>>
>>295974
Thing is Amiya may have a "niche" but she's still useless as hell. Kafka is fast redeploy, nuff said, and Mayer and Scene are incredibly high potential units, and Mayer has a risk 27 pyrite clear to her name. And if being overshadowed by Surtr is a concern you might as well throw Lappland out the window too. At least AOE guard is an actual unit outside of their skill procs.
>>
>>295978
>Thing is Amiya may have a "niche" but she's still useless as hell.
I can generally agree, I would put her lower just like Sora but having the option for true damage if you can't debuff a thick boss is a decent option to have.
>Mayer and Scene are incredibly high potential units
High potential in what way? Mayer can nuke but she only does spread nuking better than W/Firewatch and Scene's main use is her bots being side guards for doing damage, stealth detection and bait because she just regenerates one instead of retreating them
>and Mayer has a risk 27 pyrite clear to her name.
I wasn't aware of this but I can see it happening.
>And if being overshadowed by Surtr is a concern you might as well throw Lappland out the window too
They both have the same type of demerit to the skill, Surtr's is just a level higher. If all you want out of them is a burst of aoe arts damage from a guard, Surtr is obviously the way to go if you can because she's going to do way more damage.
Lappland still has use because of the ranged guard range and the fact she has a silence on her attacks, her s2 doing arts and hitting two targets is more a bonus than anything.
>>
>>295989
>High potential in what way?
Mayer and Scene are high potential because they can be used to great results, carrying far more than their weight when used correctly, basically the purpose of summoners anyway.
>Lappland
Silence is useless now, her s2 is way too unreliable, and Surtr has even better aoe capabilities. Surtr with s2 completely takes Lappland's s2 role with better consistency and higher single target damage, and the fact that Surtr's s3 is so good that "better Lappland" is completely ignored should say something. Thorns also dumpsters Lappland with range, dps, and consistency.
>>
>>296012
>carrying far more than their weight when used correctly, basically the purpose of summoners anyway.
Ah yeah okay I get you, I thought I was missing something but I get what you are saying here and fully agree. I've had plenty of uses for Maggie in the CC daily stages for all three of her skills.
>Silence is useless now
I was going to argue against this but it does seem that you are right, it's only useful against older annoying enemies like spiders while a bunch of the newer annoying ones are all immune.
Poor lappy, she got super dumpstered unless you are really despite for ground ranged arts damage.
I guess comparing against Sutur is unfair in the same way that comparing against Eyja is, just kinda way overtuned for the role.
>>

lol fuck no, he's a decent duelist and self-sufficient lane holder in CC, he's not even in the same league as SA or Eyja. At least put something like Angelina if you're including a unit primarily used for CC stages like Hellagur.
>>
>>295978
She's a decent ST caster with a good talent, not everyone has Eyja or Ceobe.
>>
>>296428
>decent
That doesn't make her worth using outside of the literal scenarios designed for her (patriot). I'd forgo casters all together if I had to drag along the donkey.
>>
>>296446
This just seems like you personally dislike her, the unit itself is fine gameplay-wise despite not measuring up to the 6*s. There's not too many alternatives for ST casters and Amiya deals consistent arts with all 3 of her skills being usable and decent stats backing it up..
>>
>>296411
Blaze is good doe
>>
>>296411
>>296425
Yes
>>
>>296459
No, Hellagur does not belong. Blaze does, sure, but Hellagur is a heavily specialized, niche unit that has no way to deal with high Def units or heavy hitters. I have him E2 with some mastery and the last time I found him useful was to stall a guerilla shielder because it attacks too slow to kill him despite him doing no damage to it.
>>
>>296446
What else is there? Absinthe? She works fine but takes a bit to get going. Nightmare's the only other one really and she's super gimmicky.
>>
>>296411
This desu, Blaze is just raw stats and doesn't obliterate high end content that well.
>>
>>296484
That can be used to describe a lot of powerful units though.
She does her job very well, as a block-3 AoE guard with a 2-range skill that turns her into the most consistent damage over time unit in the game, plus a one time revive. There's not a whole lot to compete with her raw power otherwise honestly, and her AoE status gives her better general use than other statsticks like Skadi.
>>
>>296449
>>296465
They're all shit. All 5* casters are completely and utterly btfo without investing hardcore into gimmicks (beeswax), and that is because most of them are nothing but dps, in which they get dumpstered by their 6* counterparts. Units like Ethan, Specter, Liskarm, Shamare, Ptilopsis perform despite higher rarity units of the same class existing, and that is because they have irreplaceable roles or utility.
>>296487
Silverash, Eyja, Bagpipe, Angelina, Saria are consistenty used in difficult content, aka content where metafagging actually matters, aka CC, where Blaze can't because her role is only dicking mooks. Also for general content Thorns replaces her because he's more flexible.
>>
>>296402
When is my nigga Hellagur getting a skin
>>
>>296529
>Saria
>strong
last I checked she's a defensive support unit, not a strong unit like the others there, including Blaze
Thorns doesn't exist yet.
>>
>>296534
Utility is a strength, faggot. Angelina isn't winning any contests in dps, but she's still there.
>>
>>296538
Nope, all of those were obviously attackers ranked on power, not meta utility. Saria is not strong, she's bulky and has good utility.
And Angelina is literally one of the most important arts damage units in the game, she solos the Wraith Leaders from last CC.
>>
>>296529
Okay, well perhaps read the post next time. Eyja and Ceobe are 6*.
Amiya is the next best thing, hence why if you don't have those 6* units you should use Amiya. This isn't an argument on whether anyone can dumpster the most broken arts in the game, it's discussing who is a decent alternative to them, and there's not much else. Also works ok paired with Eyja in the rare case you need more than one.
>>
>>296541
At high risk she does dick to the wraith leaders. Her raw dps is not impressive, it's like 800 something per second last time I checked.
>>296548
Using outclassed garbage isn't what I think of when someone asks "good 4* 5*s," I think of investments that translate to endgame well.
>>
>>296552
At high risk it's pure pain and the Eyja's literally the only unit who can slay them. This doesn't mean that her value in Risk 18-21 means nothing.
>>
>>296555
>literally the only one
No, I used shirayuki, suzuran, magallan s1, and angelina to stall and kill them at risk 25.
>>
>>296552
90% of the units are outclassed by the absurdly powerful 6*s. The fact is that Amiya is the best non-6* regular caster in the game and can fill the need sufficiently even in endgame content, unless you're going for Risk 19+ dickwaving for no tangible prize in which she can't measure up to units that ignore Res easily.
>>
>>296558
>Suzuran
It doesn't mean much then, you could use a huge variety there with her there stopping everything.
>>
>>296559
See why we were listing GOOD units that DON'T get dicked on by 6*s instead of Amiya.
>>
>>296561
>every unit is shit if a 6* is better
This is a terrible way to think of things in a game like this. The original post was not asking about units that aren't outclassed by ez mode 6*s, they were asking for decent units that are 4* or 5*, which Amiya is. She's a pretty vanilla unit but does the job well for that.
>>
>>296564
Define decent investment. If a recruitable unit that has been in the cert shop completely invalidates your unit the moment you receive them, then I don't think they'd qualify. This, of course, is barring Amiya since you're required to promote her to progress in the story later on, g8 gamedesign, hypergryph. She'd be a shit investment if it weren't for that fact though.
>>
>>296572
Then why are we even arguing about Amiya being worth E2 when you have to regardless? Promote the little rat and get it over with, it's a moot point.

Just to throw in, as the guy that made that list this chain spawned from I listed the units that I personally think are good even with higher rarities existing, and as many people online have proven, you can make anyone work to get the rewards for basically all content.
>>
>>296574
Because she's an exception. She's not a good investment for her own gameplay performance, but because you're handheld through her promotion. She's not a good unit.
>>
>>296582
She is fine gameplay-wise. To address this>>296572 more thoroughly, it's terrible logic. Every permanent 6* will eventually be in the shop, it's just a matter of time. My friend just got Exusiai out of the shop, were they supposed to give up on all drone stages instead of E2'ing Meteor to take them out? What if a 6* unit comes out in CN that absolutely buttfucks Ethan and shames him in every aspect? Are you supposed to just ignore every strategy that would use him? The reason to promote and use them is that they fill a role for a TIME even if you can somehow get all the 6*s with supreme luck or spending. Eyja's an extremely rare unit in the shop that's usually filled with undesirable ones like Shining, what the hell else are they supposed to do in the meantime to clear out bosses like Patriot or even regular Guerilla Shielders that are obliterated by Ifrit and Eyja? Why not use the decent general-purpose ST caster the game gives you and promote her because she just needs rocks (the easiest to farm item) and a few kohl (the cheapest aside from rocks in the shop)? She works fine and is a fine role for caster, plus like you said if you invest in her as a caster she also becomes a Ch'en-lite guard through the story.
>>
>>296576
Also a good point. I'd still use Vigna or Liskarm even if I got Bagpipe or Hoshiguma.
>>
>>296595
Absolutely. Without knowing who someone has already and what they already have upgraded I can't give actual recommendations other than "these ops if you have them are generally good and don't get horribly outclassed any time soon, or outright are the only one that can do X which is good"
Personally I E2d Cuora because she was the best non-healing defender I had at the time and used her till I got Hoshi (a week later maddeningly), and I don't regret it because I now have a 4 block defender that can self heal if I need it, and she did actually see use in a max risk clear of cinder recently too so hey.
>>
>>296605
I had Exusiai as my starter, and even with that I still E2'd Blue Poison after, because lo and behold having two snipers is often a necessity. Same for a lot of vanguards and defenders.
CC Cinder amuses me because I keep seeing that Mudrock Surtr duo clear of some ridiculous risk like 27 or something. Glad I have Red for that stage at least.
>>
>>296612
I use Exu and BP together myself as they compliment each other wonderfully and Exu's buff lets me put BP in places you normally wouldn't want to because of her low hp.
>that Mudrock Surtr duo clear of some ridiculous risk like 27 or something.

The best way is to make sure it's only her and who you want buffed out, so the main place I use it is Anni 3 where I just start with Exu > BP then my vanguard.
I found it on ucky's channel and yeah this is exactly as dumb as I expected it but holy fuck he has both at max pot.
I hope I do. I have enough certs to buy the headhunting tickets out again so if the next standard doesn't have Red in the shop I'm just gonna buy that out and cry when Red is in the following banner.
doko yes
I am thinking it's really about time I sit down and actually make my dps spreadsheet for everyone, I know what I want to do I just need to try and figure out the best way to automatically do the skill cycles as just the base dps is piss easy.

Yeah, sometimes I just forget that Exu can buff a unit. Ucky's a big whale so I expected at least max since he makes a million videos showing Surtr blowing shit apart.

>>
>>296642
Honestly most of the time I don't really care who the buff falls on because it's a bonus, but in anni 3 BP really needs it because I'm lazy about bumping her to 60, see webm.
The fun thing is Red is the only release operator I'm still missing from the original launch pool.
>>
>>296590
You're talking about plugging a hole with whatever works, when you could instead alter your strategy, or do the secret forbidden strat of borrowing a unit. I agree meta is time sensitive, and a better alternative to Amiya has always existed in every timeframe, Ethan is the only Ethan for CC beta and CC 0. More importantly, the fact of the matter is that there are 4 and 5 stars that are extremely strong and stand toe to toe with 6 stars, and Amiya is not one of them. I built Ansel because I had literally no other healers at one point, doesn't mean I'd call him a good unit worth building. I'd take the lmd back and just not use a medic in hindsight. Amiya is replacable, directly or otherwise, and that's what makes her a stopgap and Ethan core. Every 6* currently in the game could show up in the shop tomorrow and buying Ethan would still be more than a solid choice. If he were powercrept, you'd probably still see him alongside that unit more than anything, like with CC 0.
>>
what does texas do with all of those rocks
>>
>>296647
>You're talking about plugging a hole with whatever works
No, I am talking about using quite literally the best non-6* ST caster available. You could "plug" it with Steward. Amiya genuinely is not as bad as you're making her out to be, goddamn dude, it's like she's unusable garbage or something when in reality she's a good power ranged arts unit with a unique 3-skill kit for a 5*. I have Eyja now, but I don't regret E2ing Amiya at all, she was quite literally the only good ranged arts I had for the entirety of the time before Eyja was in the cert shop. I got a great deal of worth out of her and she nuked the Shielded Senior Casters and Bullies quite handily, which were a huge thorn in my side, especially the Bullies. She works great for all the Chapter 7 content actually due to several enemies possessing A-level Def and Res. You can only take 1 support and in stages like the CM of Ancient Forge's last stage I needed a lent Siege to even get past the first wave, so it's not always an option (the refreshes can also be a royal bitch). I reiterate, you just seem to despise Amiya herself and that's clouding your perception of what's otherwise a unit only superceded by two ultra-rare units that are gacha exclusive.
Moreover, even if it was "plugging a hole" why does that factor in? Ethan was just an example, but I wasn't talking about something like Elysium vs Myrtle, I was talking something like Gummy vs Saria. The time you use that for is what's being invested in. I could play this until the EoS and never see a unit like Ceobe enter my units. Would it be incorrect to just make do with the best alternative instead when I need some high power arts? Telling people not to use a decent but not top unit because it's outmoded by the rarest in the game is silly.

Who gives a shit, the thing this was all about was a recommendation list and she's always going to be a mandatory upgrade so she belongs on the list even if she's the shittiest unit in the game, plus she's also a guard so she makes it easy to skip upgrading other dualstrike guards since Ch'en isn't that frequently used anyway. She works fine anyway, better than fucking Haze and Nightmare at least. You're overblowing how bad she is.

It's been my auto for a while, I did it cuz I wanted to cut a medic at the top so I could fit a aoe sniper in there and it worked after a few tries.
The real fun bit there is Silverash is on S1, I just needed him for stealth removal.
I fucking had a guaranteed Red from recruit drop a tag and cuck me with Shaw. I'm still fucking mad about that.

I'm not quite sure how the new Sarkaz casters work.
Is it that they just automatically cast wide-ranged arts on everything in a certain radius at once, or do they just hit around their adjacent tiles until hit by a pulse wave

I never set up an Anni-3 auto, might do it now that I have BP and no longer need a support one.
I think I got a tag drop for something 5* but it suddenly plopped Vulcan in front of me so I wasn't upset.
>>
>>296683
It's slightly more sanity efficient to run it over 2 so I think I swapped over once my team was more of a overall higher level but I can't say when I did really, though I do remember not being able to get 400 kills the first week of it.
It's the only thing of good rarity that's dropped a tag on me which is why it hurts so hard.

>>296663
>>296668
I have nothing against Amiya besides how mediocre she is, you can replace most everything I say with "Absinthe" instead and I'd likely tell you the same thing, though Absinthe is basically better in general, seeing as her s1 is literally just infinite duration amiya s1.
>exaggerating how bad she is
She has worse single target arts dps with s1 than Angelina's s3 and shirayuki s2, and those skills also slow and do aoe damage. She's pathetic, most 5* casters are; they're just hilariously undertuned compared to any other class's 5*s.
>inb4 s2-3
Hilariously inconvenient AND underwhelming.
>>
why have true damage when you can just pump more candy bars into the sheep kouhai and rich snow leopard
>>
>>296698
She's an ok guard. Better than Bibeak.
Doesn't make sense to compare her to a unit that can't even attack normally and a unit that normally does physical damage unless they're using their skills. Regardless this shit is gay and you have to upgrade her anyway so she's on any and all recommended 5* upgrade lists, full stop.
>>
>>296698
Them being undertuned is meaningless, because she's the only consistent arts option, both of those are not (also one of very few that use any Pure, with the only other Pure nuker being Weedy, a 6*). I suppose you could argue Absinthe would be better for Annihilation I guess but otherwise she just takes too long for an average stage without the accelerator Amiya has. You can keep saying how mediocre she is but it doesn't change that she is the best consistent ranged arts that an average newer player will be able to access and is worth using just because of that. And like everyone seems to say, you HAVE to so why not do it when she'll actually see use instead of way later on when you have a ton of better ones and get stonewalled for her guard form? Upgrade your damn rabbit, braise her over an open flame, stuff her in a pie, who cares.

I got super lucky and got W and Weedy as well so I know I'm going to be fucked for the next few banners.

I can't see them delaying the chapter that long as they only have about 6 months of content ahead of us right now and I'm sure nearly a month of that could overlap with other events for us, so if they slow CN's pace down a tiny bit we ought to be caught up this year fairly easy, hell if we are really lucky we might be caught up before cc#4 comes out.

Now that I think about it, wasn't Ch7 on CN's 1st Anniversary and Ch8 on the second? Damn they're really delaying chapters to once a year, no wonder they resolved Reunion in only 8 chapters.

The wiki also has a ton of other speculatory stuff but I'm inclined to agree.

I thought of it after posting but it could be a third type where it's pure endurance or something, no kill count to close it off, or something stupid high like 999 and have it finish at the normal 400 for anni for rewards like risk 18 is and have it get progressively harder with dumb shit like multiple heavy buffed bosses for the max risk people.

It should have 4x then because the part that sucks about Anni is the first 200 or so enemies that are just shitters. Could just offer more DP to start with and skip to halfway in a lot of them.

I feel like 4x will cause issues with how it works for skills but a 'risk' to just dump you halfway through or at a heavy wave would be a nice comprise.
Well considering the chapters seem to be getting longer and longer I'm not too surprised it's taking so much time to make each one, at least there is still events inbetween too.
I will do my best to dream of Scene, I hope we get more art of her once blade hits global but there's always the option of learning to draw myself and just doing it myself.
>>
>>296809
A skip would be nice, yeah.
I feel like the story won't be addressing anything involving anything like Kazdel or Rim Biliton for a very long time considering we're going to go fuck up fantasy-notEurope now. Feels interesting but also like filler now that Reunion is down, since there's no reason for an infected-care group to interfere with a monarchy of a foreign land that they don't even have many ops from.
Peace out mate, GL on the Scene drawing.

Ignoring mats because that stuff is a bitch, it should take about two weeks of base production to take a 6* from e0lvl1 to e2lvl30, about 10 days for a 5* to do the same and about a week for a 4* to do the same.

So uh, my thoughts on CC aged very poorly. CC#4 has been announced for CN already and it's like next week.
I really was expecting another routelite event sometime soon but maybe it's being hard to figure out what to do for a second one or they want to see how popular it is on global.
>>
>>296985
He's fun, but by no means a must-have. I somewhat regret investing so much into him as I very rarely use him anymore. He's expensive and has short range. Like Ifrit it's all about the map you're playing on and the enemies you face. He's definitely not a "take on most missions" unit.
>>
For what purpose is this cat forbidden from wearing clothes?
>>
>>297153
Rip, he looks pretty fun but if his range cucks him from being good then that's that
>>
>>297390
To gain the full power from him he has to attack the row right in front of him. If you can get a map with a bunch of enemies are gathering up in a narrow lane and are blocked or slowed, and you can place him just right, he'll kill everything in front of him.
But he's certainly not versatile. Upgrade him if you've already upgraded the sensible choices and you want to mess around with a new unit.

how long until they add a fast redeploy 3* to completely neuter yellow cert recruitment
>>
>>298396
Probably not any time soon, they haven't added any new 3*s for a very long time and the only one not in the recruitment pool is Cardigan.
Also apparently they roll the rarity first before tags so I'm not sure if it actually changed apart from making it nigh-impossible to recruit Estelle normally now.
>>
>>298293
I was wondering about that actually.
What is the conversion rate for red tokens to orange tokens from these? I'm not sure if I should just use my red tokens for an extra Elysium (he's max pot so it'd just be certs) or to save them for easy materials that are irritating to get like Manganese.
>>
>>298085
Actually really fucking good. Probably my favorite out of the recent songs.
>>
>>298408
One red token is worth 6 orange tokens, so since you have full pot Elysium that would mean a choice between 13 gold certificates or 5,625 manganese blocks.
Personally I'd always go for the certificates.
>>
>>298462
I just freerolled another Elysium actually, this banner has been good to me. I have enough reds for one more so that's 10. I'll do it on the last day.

Will i need another healer if i have Shining, Nightmare, Nearl and Myrtle? I just used them to clear the last red voucher stage, and it went pretty smoothly
>>
>>298647
Ptil for 30% more sp regen, Saria because Saria and Nightingale for anti-arts eventually.
>>
>>298647
Out of all the other Healing units:
>Ptilopsis
Not even used for the healing explicitly, she boosts SP gain by an extra 0.3 SP per SP.
>Nightingale
For CC Cinder and Chapter 8's finale.
>Warfarin
Scales extremely well with units like Exusiai that attack fast but have middling atk.
>Saria
The de-facto healer for everything really, many people don't use medics at all thanks to her.
>Folinic
Event only but if you got her she does have the unique feature of being the only medic that can attack enemies (with a sort of burst AoE heal+arts damage shot). Gimmicky, also can function as better Ansel with S1.
>Perfumer
Just level her dude, she's extremely important for a lot of strategies and she's dirt cheap since she's 4*.
>Breeze
I heard she technically has the highest healing out of AoE healers, but it's a bit redundant.
>Sussuro
Kind of moot with Shining's S1 but good for Surtr if you plan on rolling for her.
>>
>>298655
Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't Saria impossibly hard to get these days?
>>298667
>>Ptilopsis boosts SP gain
I didn't know that, out of those i think i have all of them but Saria. Might go for Follnic next, considering i dont even have Ansel at max level
>>
>>298695
I just use her S1 usually, her slow atk spd doesn't lend her too much power even with her burst shot.
Also Saria's just like any other launch 6*. She'll be in the shop again eventually and she's in the recruitment pool.
>>
>>298695
>Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't Saria impossibly hard to get these days?
She's in recruit my dude. Just gotta get lucky with top ops.

Mrytle s1 without mastery but with bag takes 9 seconds till you can activate but with mastery only takes 3 seconds, plus the nest cast is 3 seconds faster than no mastery.

>>298647
I have gotten a shitton of use out of Silence and her Medical Drone. Being able to throw down a drone that heals everything around it a fair bit is really useful. Need some healing for that one sniper sitting by itself? Drop a drone. Need some extra healing for your guards as the heavy-hitting enemies are making things a bit too dangerous and the healers can't keep up? Drop a drone.
It's cheap for what it offers, available quite often and doesn't run out during the battles. It's quite literally a lifesaver.
Silence herself is also a good healer and she boosts other healers aspd, which is nice.

You don't *need* her, but she can really be helpful.
>>
>>298777
Nice 7's. I like to use the Medical robot for that reason, you plonk it down, doesn't add to the unit count, gives everyone flat health. Great in a pinchi
>>
>>298817
Lancet?
>>
>>298396
>>298398
It's harder to know when you've got a 4*, but the actual rates should be exactly the same.
>>
>>298777
Early on I found her drone handy too cuz it could help out in a pinch where I needed more healing but as I've progressed and gotten the higher rarity units that can heal I've been finding myself needing less actual healers often and tend to just use Ptil for her sp buff now.
>>

>>298841
If you have the mats to spare.... 6 stars can be quite painful to level.
>>
>>298844
They are, but most 6*s are worth the mats and even then they shouldn't be a side thought for your mat farming unless it's a pure luxury unit for you.

>>298844
For good reason, they're usually excessively powerful and infrequent to get.

I can't stop thinking about this guy when I say Elysium's name.
Feels like E2'ing him is low priority, he doesn't seem to gain much. Should I do his E2 first or Red?
>>
>>298868
Considering we have blade in a month or so I'd go with Elysium first, Gravel is plenty fine for it since you don't need Red's stun.
>>
>>298871
Oh yeah, fug. I should E2 Gravel before both of those, she really needs the extra stats to put into her shield to survive a purple Faustshot.
>>
>>298875
You don't need to survive the purple shot, most runs I saw just retreated her once they confirmed the bolt fired.
>>
>>298876
It doesn't reset his shot? Nevermind then, I'm dumb.
>>
>>298878
Nope. Pretty sure any attack can't switch targets once the attack animation itself starts.
>>
>>298885
I thought it reset the atk timer unless they were stunned because the Demolitionists seemed to do that. Man I've been using Red to limp past too many things.
>>
>>298888
The only thing I know for sure does reset a attack is them being stunned, it's part of why you saw videos of the golems from ToW being memed on without the towers because you can stall them forever because of how slowly they attack.
>>
>>298889
Ah yeah I remember that, Bibeak took a while.
>>
Should i E2 my nearl, or try and get Saria
>>
>>298868
Not really a point to e2ing Red unless you want to master her skill(s).
t. e2 lvl 80 pot 3 m6 Red user.
>>
>>298920
Actually it's because of Chill, that was pretty useful. More damage for her drop-bomb S2 as well.
>>
>>298908
Saria is a huge upgrade, but I don't know what you mean by "try to get," you better not be pulling off focus for her. Healing defender is hardly a necessary role; most roles aren't; so if you don't feel comfortable dumping resources in her, you don't need to.
>>
What if there were more gamemodes... like what if you could use your Operators for an attack instead of a defense?
>>
>>298930
I was honestly hoping we would see a third event type or a second rougelite by now, though I can't see your idea working too well.
>>
>>298930
You may as well spend all that gamedev effort on an entirely new game. The closest mechanic we have to moving operators is retreat/redeploy, and aside from helidropping they are completely incapable of aggressing.

Can someone tell me the best e2 order/priority for these units?
>>
>>299376
Ptilopsis isn't the best at actually being a medic, she's the best booster in the game (to the point where a lot of strategies using her just slam her in the farthest corner of the map instead of near anyone she can heal). The best medic is probably Nightingale simply because she has the highest stats and reduces arts, she slightly edges out Shining due to Def generally being of less concern.
Speaking of medics, I'm surprised there's not been anything new in the way of 6* medics. Guess they don't really have anything else to do with them.
>>
So uh
Remember Future Lava or Movie Lava, whatever? She's an event prize and her official name is now "Hellfire Lava"
>>
>>299378
Silverash is the obvious choice. Truesilver Slash is really, really powerful and he can use it quickly after being placed. There's a reason why he's an essential part of many strategies for beating maps.
>>
>>299378
Silverash, Weedy, Angelina. The rest is up to you

-Thorns

-Flint 5*
-Eunectes

Rewinding Breeze
-Surtr
-April 5*

-Rosmontis
-Mudrock
-Whisperain 5*

Mansfield Break
-Mountain
-Kafka 5*

Beyond Here
-Archetto
-Iris 5*
>>
any tips for someone starting out? started a few days ago
>>
>>299978
Narrow it down. For example, what do you need role-wise? No Saria? Maybe go for Blemishine.
And another, who's the most overpowered? Mudrock, Surtr, and Thorns are the key candidates.
Do you care about Limiteds? Then Rosmontis and the new Zodiac unit are good to think about.
Then consider who to eliminate.
Do you really need a unit like Whisperain? Is a 6* brawler guard like Mountain worth using up your rolls on when busted shit like the three above are floating around? Do you really need an ultra heavy boss killer gimmick defender like Eunectes just because she has juicy thighs?
>>
>>299995
>>300039
I just had a look at all of the upcoming 6* and literally all of them seem worthwhile. What a difficult lot.

Obviously Mudrock is the top priority due to story significance and the limited banner, but I can't even save rolls because there are 4 good banners between now and then and she'll probably come in March. And I'll probably need twice as many rolls thanks to Rosmontis.

You're right that Thorns and Surtr seem very good, I'd probably aim for them too.

Mountain might be a brawler but he's the best in his archetype and they're getting buffed and you can also use him as a cheaper AOE guard. Archetto might be just another sniper but she does a lot of AOE damage while still being a regular sniper.

Blemishine, Eunectes, and Rosmontis seem a bit less gamebreaking, though still very strong. I suppose they are the best candidates to skip. Is this the general consensus?
>>
>>300053
I'm not saying Thorns, Surtr, and Mudrock are "very good," they're flat out busted. Surtr is the most powerful arts unit in the game and can mash A+ level res enemies like melted butter. Mudrock is near unkillable at all times and Thorns basically outmodes 95% of all non-arts guards.
Brawler guards "buff" already happened, it was literally just a pathetic smattering of extra stats that did next to nothing to help. Skip Mountain unless you're into bara furries, he's not weak and is by far the strongest brawler but he's nothing compared to Surtr or Thorns.
Blemishine is the best out of the last three there, she can perma-disable most slower attacking enemies. Eunectes and Rosmontis are alright I guess.
>>
>>300053
Thorns, Surtr and Mudrock are the ones I'm aiming for personally, the rest don't do enough better or differently from what I already have to make me want them.
Though some banners like Archetto I will roll on because I want the 4/5*'s from them.
>>
>>300053
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgwJQHBR_yA
Surtr is commonly considered the most broken attacker in the game and is so powerful it's considered a valid and highly effective strategy to bring just Surtr and an entire team of medics +Myrtle. If you're only rolling for gameplay then fuck everything else, you want Surtr and Mudrock with Thorns on the side. Mountain, Archetto, Eunectes, whatever, they're a joke compared to Surtr. I can't believe they greenlit her.

>>
>>300351
What are you trying to use her for exactly?
I've found her S1 shines when you need to slow something heavy but it's in a awkward area where other slowers can't do their best or you need aoe slowing.
Her S2 is kinda shit because of it's range but I've found use for it on daily cc stages with throwers to kill them when you have the tag that nullifies their hp loss.
Her S3 I generally use to replace snipers in maps like CC dalies where you have less units you can take or can drop into a dangerous spot, activate it so they retreat just after their stealth ends, most notably for normal stages would be CA-5.
>>
>>300360
i dont know. i just got her and she is the only character i knew before i started the game because i think she is cute and id like to be able to use her but my friend who plays the game said she is difficult. maybe they arent the best but i was just curious a way i can make her work
>>

Looks like a goat skull with a hole in the center.

Don't focus too hard on the high rarity units, 3* ops are very cheap to raise and are useful for a lot longer than you'd think in a gacha game. There are people dedicated to clearing stuff with only 3* and freebie units.
>>
>>300369
Well the biggest downside to multi-summoners (Maggie, Mayer, Scene, Deepcolor) is their summons take up a deploy slot, so to use Maggie and her drones that's half of your slots gone right there.
The way I try to use Maggie is looking at the drones as fast redeploy snipers effectively, put them in a spot to deal with a wave, use her skill to bring them back and then reposition them for the next set, but this honestly works best when you have other units that can do multiple roles so you don't need that many slots anyway.
I do have free slots if you want to add me and try to play around with my m9 Maggie too before you invest too hard into her at this point.

sure! thatd be nice of you. my ID is 41358835

Tossed one your way, I've left her on s3 because that's the main skill you tend to use on her.

Next event is HoSF Re-Run

Which means: Thorns, Andreana and Jaye banner.
Guess that's also why we just had Skadi in the shop then, cuz her summer skin is in this too.
>>
>>300351
She was really good for CC pyrite because when used with suzuran her skills have insane uptime, her s1 groups up enemies and stops them in their tracks for a pretty good time and then you can destroy the wraiths and such with aoe arts damage, and the drones can also draw the crossbowmen's attention away from your other units. I know her s2 was also really good on that map too, but it's harder to utilize, mostly just for the sniper strat, which lacks arts dps for the wraiths. She's good for CC in general, her s3 is her generalist skill, the other guy covered it well, fast redeploy snipers ins about right. Really good for sniper bans, and strong aoe damage in general; nearly 2k atk with big aoe range on skill proc. If you're playstyle is more flexible with lots of redeploying then the deployment slots isn't as big of an issue and she's easier to utilize. I've got her m9'd too so I can shoot you a request. I'll put her on s2 maybe.

Considering there's no infinite gachapon this time gambling on 1-7 is likely worthwhile. But I'm also bad at math so others might want to chime in too.

why? What's there to farm then?
>>
>>301241
hold up, No gachapon? how do you get the unqiue furniture set then? I got the DDD one last time and though I could get the Alive until sunset set one this time. also if there isnt a gachapon there wont be any resources to farm right?

It still has the 1-5 gachapons, but since they have a set amount of items in them you just need to farm enough currency to buy them out and then you are done.
It's overall just way less rewarding than the first time around even with the int certs for vets.

They may have made the event just a little above average in resources now in the re-run but hey at least I can get my Alive until sunset stuff and intelligent points I can exchange in the store. RIP to new players though they missed out hard especially on the magnesium, If I remember correctly it was a 50% chance of getting magnesium from the infinite gachapon. I still have left over magnesium from the first HoSF and am in no danger of running out anytime in soon even with upgrading and masterys going off all hours of the day and night on my account.

The re-run is about on par with "side story" events but it's way below any of the events where you have stages to farm, but that seems to be the running theme with re-run event rewards overall.
Missing any event first run seems to be just a massive rip for anyone if you want the rewards vs farming stages.
55% chance to get a epic tier capsule which was just Sugar and Manganese.
All it really means is we farm to clear the gachapons then go back to whatever it is you are normally working on I guess.
>>
So use all the pots right now I guess. Dang that sucks. I'm just going to farm red certs anyway.
>>
>>301302
Isn't there a chance they might have an extra shop like they did with the darknights event?
>>
>>301384
There isn't no. The extra shop in Darknights was a thing in CN as well so it wasn't surprising that we got it, just that we weren't sure if we would get it at the start or not.
>>
I can't lie, I was rooting for Patriot a bit.
Not even because of his "I'll kill fate" shlock but just because Amiya and Doc's responses to everything he said were fucking pathetic holy shit
The man's got nothing to lose, he's literally hours from death, his daughter is dead, he's the last of his kind, and he's part of an organization he knows is falling apart.
Then Amiya and Doc come in with "b-but Frostnova approved of us"
fuck you

>>301494
Same but not because I failed to get her but because I didn't realize when the banner was ending like a retard and missed getting weedy.
>>
>>301572
Weedy isn't limited at least so the next set of banners onward should have her in it so you always have the chance of getting spooked.
>>
>>301576
She shows up 5 months later on CN, and Ceobe and Aak have recently had rate ups since their debuts, so I guess now I just wait.
>>
>>301585
A focus banner yeah, but she should be in the standard pool for any banner now right?
>>
>>301595
Sure, but that's not a reliable hope for getting her at all.
>>
>>301596
True but you just need to have faith in getting bad enough luck to only get off banners for the next few big roll banners we are getting.
>>
>>301598
The only things I have an eye out for are eunectes and whisperain. None of the other operators really interest me.
>>
>>301600
Oh, and I want Flint cuz she's cool.
>>
>>301600
Oh fair.
I'm still a massive metafag so I'm hoping to get Thorns, Surtr and Mudrock fairly easy when they all roll around, but I do want some units that just look fun like Kafka, Iris and Beanstalk.
>>
>>301609
Yeah, maybe I'll snag Kafka and Beanstalk, they seem fun. I'll all metafagged out tho, I think I'm set for life.
>>
>>301611
Honestly Surtr is the main one I want for metafaging, Thorns and Mudrock are both great but nowhere near as dumb as Surtr.
Kafka just has a really interesting overall style and I'm still horribly lacking when it comes to FRD ops cuz I only have Gravel and Waai Fu as it stands, while Beanstalk is at least in my opinion, likely another hidden monster of a 4* with the stats between her and her Crab.
>>
>>301481
Did Chapter 8 reveal there's another pureblood Wendigo? Pretty sure they made a huge deal out of him being the very last one for a reason.
They didn't just handwave it, they outright had him state he's the last one, it's part of the whole prophecy with the demon king Amiya's supposed to be where the last of his race will be killed by them, and they plastered it to titles and such around him. It'd be pretty silly to just invalidate all that.

>Top Op tag finally
>can pick Skadi, Ch'en, or Siege
Deep down I know Ch'en isn't that great but hot damn I want her. Not even bothering with Skadi, who do I choose?
Ch'en would save me buying her later and having both Top Op and Nuker in the same one is absurdly rare, Siege loans save my ass when my Elysium and Myrtle are too slow and I'd probably use her more but at the same time my vanguards are mostly handled. I'm not chancing a random one, I don't want a dupe.
>>
>>301669
If you don't have bagpipe and have found borrwing Siege that useful I'd just go with her.
Skadi is just stats and Ch'en is handy for her talent but with Archetto we are seeing that we will get stronger more focused versions of her talent so she might not be super handy for that in the future too.
>>
>>301670
Well I have used Siege 3 times.
Once in Risk 14 of CC Barrenlands, to stem the very first two soldiers. No other unit was bulky enough within cost range.
Once in Ancient Forge's last stage, to kill the bumrush dog on the top row. Retreated after.
And one in a story chapter, before I got Myrtle.
I've also used Skadi a single time, for CM 5-3. Near impossible without her, even with SL1.
I've never used Ch'en, I don't actually know what she does other than "gojira chen *cue loud noise and shit dying*" but I had planned to spend 180 certs on her when she came out as she is very attractive and I already bought her NY costume in preparation.
>>
>>301674
Siege has nice aoe but 2 block for most stuff can be filled by most other 2 block vanguards, Texas is my go to 2 block now and in the last cc she cut it where my Siege couldn't, somehow.
Skadi is just a giant bundle of stats, she's nice if you need massive bulk to get through something, like 5-3 CM but in general you honestly don't need her.
Ch'en has two nukes, a instant in her s2 where it's 500% phys + arts and her s3 which takes ten hits to charge but does 10 320% hits.
This does sound like you should just follow your dick here 2/3 of these units are basically luxury units and the other one is good but easy to replace most of the time and once you get Bagpipe it's unlikely you are going to use her much unless you are doing full vanguard meme squads.
>>
>>301678
The Nuker tag dropped and the game chose for me.
>>
>>301679
Happens.
Don't forget we have the next CC early next month so don't go too ham on Siege if you still have other units you wanted to be upgraded for it.

Yeah I guess this means I'm spending those certs anyways, fug. I even took a screenshot of choosing Nuker. Better than another dupe though, I would've been pissed if it were yet another Nightingale token.
Probably Liskarm first, I know she's important because of the Brawlers. Just did Ptilopsis and she's ok.
>>
>>301684
Shit happens, I know I'm buying red the instant she's in the store again because she's the only launch unit I fucking STILL don't have.
>Liskarm
If you don't have Weedy S3M3 and Ange S3M3 I'm not really sure I would bother with her at this point, she's only really seen to feed Weedy SP so she can keep knocking the pack of enemies back, I know I'm unlikely to bother myself unless I can get my Weedy E2'd and m3'd for week 2 bullshittery at least.
>>
>>301685
All my Top Op tags end up this way somehow, it's weird. Better to have one than not though.
I have Weedy E2, no Masteries. No Angelina. Eh, don't want the increased DP cost anyway.
>>
>>301686
Ifrit plagued my top op tags for a while for some reason but it seems like her mother is the one I've gotten the most of now.
If you don't have Ange I wouldn't bother with trying to do push memes at all, the weight reduction on enemies from her S3 is generally the biggest enabler for that stuff.
If you are unsure on what to try and aim for for CC#2 you can take a peek at Bam's sheet:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MYmj9wWFziNamINoKCmcQNO9mADF2r3gAeOhYMKiDDs/edit?usp=sharing
But honestly everything sorta points to this being the easiest CC so far, a lot of his examples are 3/4* squads with a borrowed 6* to cut through stuff.

The blue aura/circle on Blaze indicates her status resistance is active right?
>>
>>301615
You can never really go wrong with more fast redeploys, I almost never have a reason not to use my m6 red all the time. Surtr would probably be my next most wanted 6* from the rest of the upcoming new batches because I really like her artist, but her being so op is more of a turnoff to me than anything, since I'll end up avoiding using her, and something about her design just doesn't quite speak to me. Her s3 animation and sound is sick tho.
>>
>>301678
>Skadi
>massive bulk
Lol, that's literally her problem. The reason she's so underwhelming is she dies to the enemies she's supposed to be killing. It's why Hellagur, Bagpipe, Specter, Siege, and Utage are able to be used in super high risk on CC 0 to duel the spiders/mages and Skadi can't. What she has going for her is her high atk stat, but for actual DUELING, 1v1 and when the enemy is hitting back, she is worse than other options.
>>
>>301840
Hellagur is also generally affected by the Risks less due to his archetype. I find him pretty mediocre for normal content but damn he's good at holding a line in CC.
