    That awakening looks like rainbow defence break...
    Breaks defence when matching all colours? (For the card with it only of course)

    Yeah, been digging around for the tooltip, looks like it's exactly as what you described.

    The awake itself is named Guard Break at the moment. Card with this awake will ignore 50% of enemy def when team attacks with rainbow.

    There is also a laser effect for cards proccing the awake effect as shown from the gif below

    That's perfect, this game needed more lasers. Honestly, what game doesn't...

    Count me in this group, I didn't believe it either until I saw it in game... wtf man wtf. It's like they are trying to put a perspective on the plus symbol, like it's rotated 30deg to a side.

    That's pretty useless IMO. To break predra defense you'll still need 5m which for the overwhelming majority of teams AND cards this awakening might be on (suvo Nepthys/Hathor/Set? Of which only Set will be able to leverage it easily) you'll still need to burn an active for, and at that point might as well SI a laser or Balboa.

    Except I posted it before you :p

    They might carefully introduce this on non-TPA/low-attack TPA monsters, but imagine what will happen when they stick this awakening on someone with high attack and more than 2 TPAs

    ... PUT IT ON SATSUKI UVO PLEASE SO I CAN WRECK MONSTER AND NON-MONSTER SHIT ALIKE WITH NOCTIS

    Getting the same suspicion as you that these might be for E2 suvo's or Awokens. It'd be nice to see that series get both the 7 combo dmg boost and the guard break awakenings, along with some massive stat boosts and multiplier boost for Hathor (which tbh is the only "lead" of that series and she hasn't ever been relevant unless your name is @MagicMatcher :p)

    I feel like Osiris could be made into a good leader if they wanted him to be. Set could be cool too, he would be great with an slr and a finger but unfortunately he only has room for one.

    They were pretty great on launch. I would have considered them the best starter leaders of that era.

    Set was good, Osiris was good, Neph was meh, Hathor had no TE and not much sub support so unless you were a combo savant you were screwed, and Nut was 5 combos for x3... not great

    I've always thought hathor to be one of the worst cards in the game. Pantheon wise, and at least up to that point. Nephthys was merely OK. Set, Osiris and nut were good subs. I suppose Osiris and Nut were OK leads but I certainly wouldn't go so far as to say they were the best starter leads.

    Hathor has always had the potential to be amazing. She can deal with resolves easily with gravity, light is unresistable, she stacks OE well enough, and isn't limited by specific subs. She also has a pretty consistent ability to activate via natural boards.

    That being said 4.5x is a low multiplier and needs some sprucing up but with that a team with 40k+HP, 10-12k RCV, and ability to activate when necessary isn't shabby at all. Just needs a bump in mulitplier and she can compete with some of the higher up leads. If she was the same HP/RCV lead with 81x or something she'd be a beast, due to her OEA. Keep in mind too that as bosses HP grows, short of absorb effects, gravity only gets stronger and stronger.

    The fact she boosts HP and is bindable is a YUUGE minus for Hathor.

    I never once used hathor so yeah, I have no experience with her. I remember that I pulled her, neph and nut when the pantheon first came out and I never once touched hathor. She sits in my box as something to inherit.

    Never really been a big fan of gravity, when the game was young sure, but now the only time I can think of to use it is on scenarios like Phoenix Knight where the resolve is at that level. Otherwise I never use gravity and never have issues clearing content. I didn't get into using Sakuya for the same reason. AS seem like a complete waste.

    Even based on the specs you laid out, Yuna would still be more usable. Hathor is just lost on me, which is cool because it's not like every lead should match up with every player which is why there is variety in the game. I certainly hope she gets some good buffs for anyone who does use her.
