It's up
Well, looks like these new legends were released simply to counter Ledakrap.
I don't know why they made Barbariba lose support after her skill is activated.
Sillion seems to be an all-rounder, atleast not as underwhelming as Slain LOL.
Oh wait, I see now.
Her Supporting Fire can also damage surrounding enemies... and she gets insane support boost if allies die.
You know what her Lamp's Authority buff doesn't say?
It doesn't say "can't be removed with removal type"

What's the interaction when attacking Mamo with it?
No supporting fire trigger but the buff still gets passed to the next merc?
redpill me on new legends
Tanlines locked behind 5 companions.
Free legend merc that doesn't have said companion, but instead has a companion tied to a beast (and probably fucking it)
i meant are they any good
No idea, i'll get back to you when I max one of them in five months

Mage seems to be pretty good. direct damage to the main target and def ignoring the entire horizontal and vertical tiles from the main target is absurd. For supporter I have no idea but who cares when she looks like this and her companion is a tanned loli.
I still haven't gotten her but it's an immunity skill so I would assume that it gets passed on.
She's a better Assmode but gets cucked by 100% def units and low health.
i wanna fuck her
also, i dont think these new units need +15
I'm not sure about the supporter since the they really benefit from higher skill levels compared to any other types. The mage probably wants +10 for permanent taunt ignore so ledakrad doesn't fuck her over.
For the old Legend units (8 and 6, I dont remember their group name),
Which should I invest next?
I already max my Nartas while Refi is +13.
I have a bunch of Legend book in the storage.
Other than that, is the new Legend group worth to invest in?
I have Slain and his companion. The companion is already at max.
Alec is pretty good and it's unlikely Direct dmg goes out of style anytime soon.
He's basically mandatory for the warrior formation and he can be slotted into the Leda formation easily too.

15 years of old ass.
17k diamonds + 70 scrolls to get pity Baba and a Kee.
>All these Babaribas with double vital runes in Arena
Now I don't wanna run rage/fatal on her when I can actually use her in 3 months time.
Her damage is based on her health and her max health without runes is like 900
two ~+2000 HP rare runes even without a sub stat will give her more of a damage increase than legend rage runes will.
Oh wow guess I'm the smoothbrain
I thought the Max health stat was based on the enemy's this whole time.
Is there a rip of all the art?

Wasn't the in-game lore for gender bender that the gods did it to fuck with them?
sad that almost every update is just new companions + evil castle floors or campaign maps
>Benshina and Floria in the same HP up set
wow. Especially since Barbariba put Floria back on Arena teams.

>sad that campaign is updates regularly
... what?
But yeah, Companions are basically just as much effort as new mercs on the dev side. They need art, combat animations, voice acting. It's a system that probably shouldn't have been put in the game, but i certainly don't expect them to go back on it and suddenly stop releasing them.
The most surprising thing about his update is that Aaron Isn't getting a companion in spite of suddenly becoming story relevant
I'm surprised that some npcs haven't been made into mercs yet. They didn't even make them either companions.
>non-playable NPCs
lets see, we got:
MC and Elin
Guild fairy
World Arena valkyrie
Gate of Chaos valkyrie
Underground Arena announcer
Soul Gear merchant
Eda but with a running gag where she says she isn't Eda even though it's obvious
Valuice or w/e the shady merchant's name is.
I would say Archduke Richard but he hasn't even appeared on screen yet.
Random assorted one time appearance characters.
babariba's so much fun
i'm seeing a lot of celia, asmode and baine
thankfully i have them
Wilhelmina used to be an NPC when the game launched in NA & EU.

IIRC Foxy used to be an NPC too back when the game first launched in Korea.
>but i certainly don't expect them to go back on it and suddenly stop releasing them.

Yeah, why would they stop?

At this point, I'm sure all players (especially veteran players) expect all mercenaries to get companions.
>completely exposed sidebutt+ leg
this is some advanced gook coomtech
Is there an opening packs auto skip that I don't know? I can't believe it's been in the game for this long and hasn't been changed. The regular skip takes like 2 pack opens before it's responsive.
works alright for me
Reading the set effect stories...

Wait, I thought Benshina is evil character? Why is she working with Floria & Acha?
30% more health on Floria is kind of nutty
Not really anything else relevant in this update though...
Well, I guess Gate of Chaos being open right now is good for new players who don't already have everything from it.
I have 11 legend books and two mercs to level up. Ledarak (full companions and SG) and Barbarida (two companions and SG)
I'm hesitating on who to skill up, as I'm all out of diamonds but Barbarida seems more useful now.

...there's also the new mage legend merc, but I want to max barbarida before her.
i dunno, think you'll get more use out of leda
hes pretty much needed for guild raid
barba doesnt seem that strong desu
If you're that close to maxxing Leda then it's a no-brainer. Barba complements the Leda form so you can build her down the line.
Also forgot to mention that there's 3 free legend transfers this month so that might help.
I've been thinking about that. The only legends I have are the level they need t be to be useful.
Mamonir Valze, Asmodeus, Refithea are +15
Granhildr, Seto, Levia are +12
Celia is +14

I suppose Asmodeus and Refi aren't as critical as before and could lose a level, but I still use them in most of my comps.
You can definitely take one out of asmode. The death effect when he is +15 is a bonus but not the main reason you put him in your teams. I don't think mamo needs to be +15 and 14 can work just fine.
If you have Gran +12, then it's even better if you finish Ledakrad first.
Like the other anon said drop a point or two off Mamonir and Asmode. They don't need +15. Mamo has fallen off and you don't even need her in a Leda form.
Iin fact, IIRC the buff prohibition counter from Mamo is applied in a Leda v Leda situation given there is a Gran (which is 100% guaranteed), so it is actually detrimental to your own Ledakrad. She's still good in Wolrd Boss though.
refi is the least useful i think, only good for PvE
for others youd most likely be using seol ah or delsa depending on your team (+ maybe galania or venaka or babariba)
Hrrmm, I could rank boost Lilian or Vermont to make use of the double slime exp, but it could be for nothing.
holy shit a lot of freebies
>5* companion chance ticket
>4 of them as rewards
I cant wait to roll for none of the ones I need.
>This week's Novice Arena bans
Holy shit, there's no way this was selected randomly.

Anyway, DoT's and reflects are probably real strong this week.
im too lazy for that shit, i just chuck in random stuff then copy someones formation in the last couple days
I give up on this week Novice.

I use Hepha, Iris and Brisa on my team, this week banned list really messed up my team and I'm too lazy to think of new formations.

Next week is gonna be interesting too.

Xenon, Morgana, Deka and Serendia will be banned.

They really banned popular mercenaries for two weeks.
Banning a bunch of meta mercs at once is kind of interesting, but it seems like it mostly just favors more established players.
They have more total mercs they've already invested in building, so it's easier to rebuild their team, and they have prior knowledge of past metas to fall back on for what might be good.

Seems like it mostly hurts newer players, in the arena format that's suppose to have a lower barrier of entry for newer players.
think they have to because otherwise it would just be months of the exact same teams because novice meta doesnt really change as often as regular arena (new legends and 5*s changing meta)
besides you will build up full set of 3 and 4 star mercs pretty quickly
Having a 4* and having a 4* at +15 with max rank boost are pretty different.
Most people don't level up 4* soul gear or spend Honor on 4* rank boosters because of opportunity cost.
rank boost is way overrated
i have every 3 and 4 star at maxed soul gear already, if you focus on giving duplicates to them for the extra xp, all 3stars will be done fairly fast
>rank boost is way overrated
20% extra attack and health is pretty significant
not really
in a head to head fight it will give you the advantage sure, but other than that just team comp and skill levels are way more important
Having max HP outside of Beatrice's one shot range on your defenders is really important.
Commanding crest
>Receives Crest Charge effect 1 turn after the battle begins.
Receives Iron Wall effect and Crit DMG Boost effect when 2 Commanding Crests are charged, and 2 Crests are consumed.
Crest Charge
>Commanding Crest gets stacked up in proportion to the number of enemies hit by normal attacks of allies, excluding oneself's.
>Iron Wall (Guard)
Does not receive any DMG.
Becomes immune to Debuff skill type.

This just screams Ledakrad support. Also seems to be a mandatory +15 since you want the maximum turn count for the skill.
It's a fucking Defender Siegmund that can screw over Delsa/warrior forms, thanks to the silence.
>thanks to the silence.
How about thanks to the fact he does Guard ignore damage so he just kills mercs through Delsa Guard anyway
fuck fuck fuck im still too poor thanks to legends

its random 4-5* comp not random 5* comp
>5* companion chance ticket
>It's actually a chance to pull 4*-5* companions
I thought it seemed too generous
Its just a new toy to play with for now. After a week we will see if its better than the Kaylin+ Granhildr or Kaylin+Baine core.
ive been using isaac quite a bit actually, feels nice to use although i guess not much synergy with leda
He's alright, but something about GoC units just makes them underwhelming. Even the 5*s releasing now have more impact.
Out of all the Obscura Octos, only Galania has has the most presence in the meta.
I guess it's because you don't need to roll a gacha?
ON the other hand, GoC units are cute. I regret being poor and not buy2jxwping galania's cowgirl skin.

Well bros, Vermont is barely used in 10% of arena formations so it seems that Kaylin and the crew are still going to be played. Lillian isn't really popular at all but I've seen her live Dwen hit so that's impressive.
It's in Korean but at around 4:23 he shows the examples.
Last week Novice ban:


This week Novice ban:


Next week Novice ban:


Damn, so many popular mercenaries got banned this month.
Most people probably don't even have those mercs since they're pretty old and been out of the meta for ages, especially Vermont.
People who have been playing for a long time have actually everything.
The only 5* I'm missing is Astrid because I used mine to get Celia, and screw using mileage on random pulls to get the components for another of her.

Though it's true I'm not sitting on enough skill books to max both him and Lillian at the same time.
Post arena forms.
Swapped Orochi for Falcon yesterday since it capped me at Crystal 3.

I will never get Vulcan.
Move your Galania.
If Gunther hits her, your Delsa is dead. Unless you have Viper targeting top row (but why would you you do that instead of targeting the same row as your damage row?)
I do have Viper on bottom row.

There's not a whole lot of top row Gunther/Supporter Falcon to warrant moving Galania from experience (on attacker side), unless I move her to the back of middle row and place Seto diagonally from her or whoever with DoT/Debuff immunity.

Regardless, ever since spell cards have been introduced, I just gave up on caring about defense.

Dammit, I just realized the "Recruit 10+2" will ends before they release October dev note.

At first, I was thinking of waiting for dev note and see if I need to pull now or wait for next month.
Do you not have Kaylin/Baine?
i have both but i like isaac
Came back after like a year of not playing, can I get a hand in making some choices? The 4*s, the 5* mage and two legend picks.
For warriors it's 2 of Zakan, Alche and Krull, the other options are already at least +8 or +9.
Defenders I'm thinking Martina and Acha. Grace used to be good enough at +3 I think? Rene, Frederica and BDM are other options but they're +6 minimum already.
Mages I'll probably go for Leah and Shoman since they're the lowest. Dr. Logic and Chalkle are only +5 and I think Chalkle was situationally really good so maybe he'd be a better pick.
For supports it's just one of Isabel, Kuwik and John, I already picked Lulu since I didn't have her at all. All the others are +9 already.
For the 5* mage I really have no idea, already have most of them but none of them skilled except Lilian at +3 and Wester at +2 because of dupes.
For legends I need to pick one of the octos and whatever the second pick allows I guess. Already have Mamonir (+0) and Beliath (+3) out of the options. Also have +14 Refi, +10 Levia, +2 Celia, Lucius, Valze, 3 legend books and a 5* companion pick to use in case those would affect the choices.
alche is good in NA
martina is decent in NA and useful for guild raid
BDM is useful for some pve stuff like castle and the thing that gives galania (forgot name)
isabel is good for world bosses
what are the options for 5* mage and legends?

Thanks, srill need another warrior, defender and mage though. Already did at least some of the BDM stages in castle (not underground if there«re any there) and it's +7 already, still the best pick?
Velf, Mamo, Bel and Seto are the legend picks and pic related are the 5* mages.
other warrior can pretty much be whatever you want, all of them are useful for something
of 4* mages esther and zarka are the most important to have maxed because of worldboss btw
if you have bdm 7 already its probably fine as is, you can just pick whatever (acha is fine)
5* mage valtor catherine aie are both useful for various things (mainly WB though)
freesia can potentially be used in arena/world arena teams
for legends it depends what kind of team you want to go for, either velf or seto
velf is probably slightly better but seto is good too and its easier to get a usable warrior team than it is to get a mages team
if you get a 6D legend pick too get alec (cant remember if you get this or not though)
You can select krull?
Checked again and nope, I just got mixed up somehow. Either that or it changes since I'm pretty sure Britain was on the defender list and not Joseph.
Esther's +8 and Zarka's +9, Esther still worth picking?
I have a bit of a soft spot for Freesia since she was my first 5* so might pick her.
Do teams nowadays focus on either warriors or mages, not a mix of both? And is Nartas not a good pick anymore?
>>597825 here, I picked Seto and the last option is between Velf and Mamo, so I guess I'll grab Velf too.
if theyre already +8/+9 then theres no point, might as well just get whatever you have lowest of then
valtor is probably the safest 5* mage pick because i dunno how much use you will get out of freesia, hes not crazy or anything though so doesnt matter that much either way
and yeah its usually a focus on one thing now because of both some new supports and the addition of spell cards
delsahidne requires 7 warriors in your team for her effect (and is a very good / easy to get team)
seol ah requires 4 mages for the damage effect, then you also want to try to prevent your magicians from getting killed turn 1 so you use tanks/taunters
falcon card makes it easy for your main thing to get sniped if you are relying on something specific to carry your team, e.g. delsa team will die if delsa dies, so you need another supporter so that falcon does not target delsa
magician team can run into a lot of trouble if something like levia dies first (or levia+velf / levia + celia etc), so usually you put another mage somewhere like helga to tank a potential falcon
nartas is still usable i guess but hes not worth investing into at all

the only variety teams i can think of are ledakrad ones where its more defender focused but they can put in some value shit that doesnt really need support like leda + some defenders that buff him + something like dwen / siegmund / levia e.g. pic related
