[Misc] JP Aggregate Leader List 04/25/18

[Misc] JP Aggregate Leader List 04/25/18

Kaede is not "tanky", imo. Gronia hits 80k+ HP and a 43% shield. Kaede would hit 40k HP and a 43% shield. One of them survives AA Goemon, one of them doesn't.

Kaede reminds me of Yog. Only tanky when 6+ orbs are present, which is pretty uncommon. Yog is not a tanky lead.

As far as why, Gronia can compensate for damage with killers, 7cs, latent killers, and spikes. Kaede can compensate for HP with...shields. Except while both need to use skills at some point, only one can stall for those skills. Gronia tends to be easier to play as well.

What trick is that? D.Ideal is a damage scaling lead starting at 2 combos all the way to 10 that's unbindable, 1.3k weighted stats, that can guardbreak and provides the team with 10% HP and 20% RCV (double if leading with both). With SAs, she can take another healing awaken bring her up to 15% team HP by herself in solo (30% for both leads). The bonus move time in her LS and combo agnostic LS means you can fill her subs with ANYTHING you want. Active is a delay + Dkali board, typing means she can take God or Machine (healers too but meh) killers.

She has a lot going for her that makes her an attractive leader, I'm curious as to what this one trick is.

Anubis is a lot easier now with 7x6 boards and more time to move.

She is a flat combo lead with no restrictions that hit max at 15x

That alone is deserving of the tier she's at. 15x is not a small amount at all in the era of 2-3 7c awakenings, which she can field because you can take almost any subs without having to worry about damage control, time extends, typing. Attributes are arguable if you want guard break or not etc.

1k weighted is the low end of stats

She's at 1.3k which is some of the highest in the game, I'm not aware of what's considered the highest (I think nees which is about 1.4k), to say ideal is at the low end of stats...What do you conisder high and which monsters reach it?

but there is no way I'd put her in the same tier as BGronia/Rikuu/Kushi

Both Sonias and Kushi are very restrictive in their sub pool. Sonias require dragons, and Kushi requires healers.

Oh wow we can finally see Perseus's face.

Also, Yamato Takeru totally looks like Tsubaki's husband.

Since when do they announce new evos in video?

Also, Wukong is looking smashing in his new art. That outfit.

The Wukong Super FUA with regular FUA super awakening is really weird.

MRW I take a break from running the tournament dungeon nonstop to play OSC

MRW I take a break from running the tournament dungeon nonstop to play OSC

Pretty much haha. Oh wow more than 5 seconds easy every enemy becomes a wet noodle

Yea except Sopdet. Why did I 10c against her?

Feels bad clearing 4c in the top, only to have 3 more combos come straight down. Can't damage control rng.

5 more seconds, a multiplier an order of magnitude higher, awakenings

I feel like a god

Didn't see anyone else post about it so I thought I might as well

AS: Remove Damage Absorption for one turn, Fire Attribute ATK 1.5x

LS: 5 Colors for 5x ATK, if 6 or less orbs left on the board gain another 6x ATK (similar to Amen)

It'll probably be released to everyone at some point but for now it'll only be available for PAD radar users who go to the event in Fukuoka and scan radar for the Descend dungeon.

"...used as uvo mats for Tyrra/Plessie/Brachys/..." This will be their fourth split uvo. Meanwhile, screw dspinas and pterados just because.

Just as a heads up:

https://padr.gungho.jp/event/2018_gunfes_add_dungeon.html

This post says that Boma is the first of a set of new radar dragons that are used as uvo mats for Tyrra/Plessie/Brachys/Light Miru/DAthena

https://padr.gungho.jp/event/img/2018_gunfes/graphic.jpg

It'll be a long wait for them to be farmable ingame and then reach NA, but its basically guaranteed that NA will get this.

If Fujin wins the player vote its not a completely lost cause (since it'll save you a year or so of waiting), but if you havent voted yet or were considering selling box for MP, you might wanna hold out on Fujn MP shop now.

[Discuss] The anti-Cotton argument

[Discuss] The anti-Cotton argument

As someone whose only truly meta lead is Anubis and no fujin and no cotton, I say screw this logic. Vote for what you need

Stalling 20-30 turns for one fujin active is bullshit. Requiring a friend with a fujin inherit for any lead you want to run arena with is bullshit.

Using a Norn/Dragonbound as your FUA is not bullshit. Needing to use Rushana in conjunction with a damage stick is not bullshit. Using that old Y'Shtola or awoken lubu isn't bullshit. Do what you have to do, the options are there. What isn't there is trying to take old damage control leads into new content. Yes, damage absorbs are becoming more rare. But they'll never disappear. Someday, there's going to be an absorb spawn in a dungeon you're not going to be able to beat with Kush or Lakshmi. May as well be prepared for that.

Hell, if you do roll another fujin in the future, you can have one as an inherit and turn the other one into the uvo with 2 7c and use her on a combo team of your choice. Fujin isn't exactly deadweight outside of inheriting now that her ults are on the way

You can find a bunch of replacements for Cotton. Not quite as good replacements naturally, but your PAD world isn't going to crash down around you if you use Ryune or Saria as your FUA sub.

I've never suffered for not having Cotton. Momiji has served me well since she got the FUA. Cotton is by definition a luxury option. I'm not saying you should vote for fujin. By all means, go vote for Cotton if you've already got a fujin active. But Cotton is by no means the best choice for everyone

You can find a bunch of replacements for Cotton. Not quite as good replacements naturally, but your PAD world isn't going to crash down around you if you use Ryune or Saria as your FUA sub.

I would argue that it is easier to find replacement for Fujin than Cotton. For Fujin all you need is the active and we have a lot more Fujin style actives now and many are easier to roll for. But it is a lot harder to find good replacement for Cotten for her FUA, 2x 7c and nice active(essentially a color absorb void).

My issue with your characterization of Cotton is that she is so very much more then "just" a flexible FUA, she is a massive damage stick, has high stats, a very short cooldown orb change that makes her primary color and hearts, brings the benefit of turning off skyfall for damage control and color absorb dodging, is unbindable unlike every other option you listed to replace her AND is the best option for FUA.

So an amazing sub for all levels of play, in all dungeons, for almost every team in the game, vs an inherit that you can borrow from a friend for the price of a few turns of stalling.

Yeah you can Cotton your way out of HeraDra 3p Dragon Rush.

Yeah you can Cotton your way for 99 turns stalling on Starling and then trying to match four combo on top of the board and praying very hard for no skyfall on Sopdet, then again on Parvati. All of them can be found in AA.

Then again, you can Cotton your way out of Vishnu-HeraDra combo in A3.

Joke aside, I wouldn't mind either Cotton or Fujin.

The premise of your argument is that Cotton has serviceable alternatives. That’s certainly true if you only care about her FUA; with Fujin, she has other options too that are actually pretty good as well. So your argument is flawed as you only point out that one side has other choices. Regardless, if you inherit Fujin on your team or if she’s present on friend’s lead, you’re going to stall. Prior to the split evos you aren’t going to sub her in most circumstances. I have multiple Fujin style actives and still would want a Fujin but in terms of value I really believe Cotton is better. See that I didn’t say absolute best possible card but since you’re most likely going to pay 1 million MP, might as well purchase a card with great flexibility. I wouldn’t buy Fujin for 1 million MP.

gilgamesh is another fujin active, apart from that he's nothing special.

ea is a solid lead, similar to rikuu but without the type restriction. not being able to activate off hearts hurts though.

double enkidu gives permanent 1.5x rcv and wood skyfall, nice for kaede.

shamash is fairly tanky, but 12x on a rainbow lead is kinda low and she can't run ideal to make up for it. art is nice though.

allatu is a 7x6 cross lead, which is interesting. unfortunately, diara is better off with diablos and b/d crosses aren't a thing right now. maybe a future aizen ult? as a sub, stats are meh but awakenings and active are pretty good.

I think ea LS is strictly easier to activate than Rikuu LS? You need 5/6 for Rikuu, but only 4/5 for this guy. Even though you can't activate off hearts, you need one less colour for full activation so it's still easier.

I want Gilgamesh for the simple fact that he can justifiably call everyone else in the game ZASHU

[RNG] 227 FMA rolls

[RNG] 227 FMA rolls

Most of rolls were done on stream, tried to get 5 Eds but to no avail. Lots of golds lol and bradleys early on got me discouraged. End of stream was pretty tilted so I rage rolled a few more times and got 2 more Eds and an Al, time to stop lol. Overall, 8.37% chance for diamonds thankfully spread out relatively evenly. My advice, stop at your first Ed.

My advice, stop at your first Ed.

I tried, but my credit card got declined first. I was starting to believe that they forgot to add diamond eggs to the machine.

Jesus.

The rates are really rough, my biggest streak of golds was around 35 and many of the gaps are around 20-30ish. Its super depresssing rolling this rem
