    Damage is not an issue with a Chrys/Tifa team, so the double-killers of Rei isn't of practical benefit to them. For reference, a single orb-change usually results in 15 to 20 million damage, while a double-orbchange like Apollo's translates to a reliable 40 million (lower-bound) in damage. As a sidenote, Tri-color board-changes are pretty reliable on a 7x6 board.

    Of the four choices, I would pick Alcyone because her double-orbchange provides an alternative killboard from Apollo's, and she has Haste. Also she changes away Poison which means she can deal with Beelz brainlessly (a full Light board will vastly overkill Beelz despite it not being full-activation).

    Random Arena stuff to note: Total HP is best above 31K to withstand Parvati's rage-hit. Against Sopdet, doing a 6-orb match plus a 3-orb match with no other combos usually works.

    Keep forgetting about the 7x6 part of this, makes damage almost trivial.

    With Alcyone/Apollo/Wukong/Apoc, I miss the cutoff for Parv by <500 HP. However, I think Tifa's shield can be used and up again by DQ Hera.

    5 HP Latents on Chrys will do the trick.

    I'll go with that then. Where do people usually farm latents?

    Never farmed latents before, I just have the ones we get as prizes. None of my cards have latents except Pure and Leilan, both full wood resists from my mail.

    Well, there's Predra Infestation some hours from now. Also, PadGuide lists HP Latents invading the Lifive Tech dungeon.

    Can I get some Tifa friends? :D

    My XM is nearly penta, just need to level him (her) twice.

    Also looking to BFF a Tifa, preferably one that is hyper, up most of the time and has at least one other shared lead.

    First Arena run, had Sopdet, Parv and Zaerog spawn, though Zaerog had dark absorb. Sopdet got absorb once but I figured her out, Parv was exactly as you said, 6- and 3-orb combo got me the 2-shot.

    Alcyone is slev1 and missing +9, Apollo is unplussed and XM is almost hyper (lv97). Apollo should be hyper from GH PEM, only thing that will take a while is Alcyone's skill ups. Unless I get annoyed and just pii her, which doesn't seem likely seeing how I didn't run into any active-related issues in this run.

    Ended up with quite 3 actives up on Kali so I dropped all of them. Not the best combo, could've gotten one more, but 7x6 board was hard enough so I just settled for the above. Working on the +2 sec badge, should help a bit.

    I managed to get the screenshot with just XM's attack landing, which was enough to kill her. :p

    @Derpinator if you still looking for a tifa bff; I play mine quite a lot, so she's very often up.

    She's pentamax with 3 SLR, 1 TE and 1 crappy light shield (which i m gonna replace at some point, considering a 2nd TE or maybe the machine killer one)

    I actually got the BFF thing sorted out, an old BFF of mine leaves up his Tifa for me. However, if you need a Chrys BFF, then I wouldn't mind using mine on you.

    Just rolled my first Saria but I'm not sure if I should sub it in on my Chrys team because the team's been working pretty well so far. The only issue has been bad binds with a bad Tama lineup but AWukong will fix that. This is my lineup with uvos taken into account:

    | |

    Anything worth swapping out or can I go inherit Saria somewhere?

    I know my Myr team could definitely use her but I barely use Myr so I'm not gonna get Saria tied up there.

    I tend to prefer Saria over Apoc but it's mostly coz I more often pair my Tifa with Ilm than with XM.

    Also; due to her Physical type, Saria would get boosted by XM's active.
    I would either inherit her on XM or use her instead of Apoc.
