    My main problem with her is lack of a suitable offensive split lead. Minnie has Ilm and Hades has Aizen. Who does Ceres get, who doesn't restrict her sub pool further?

    Well, with your qualification sure, but Zuoh and split Ishida come to mind. I've toyed with Idhida... Parvati, Artemis, devil MeiMei, Cauchemar, and Zuoh are all good tho for Ishida you want low cd / haste subs. Yeah, none are as good as Ilm

    Off topic but what are good GL leads?

    If anyone is looking for a Revo Ceres I have her hypermaxed with Cameo inherit.

    Would love some more Ceres friends.

    Sadly, Zuoh's LS is dated as fuck; he needs 2 green and 2 purple matches for the same multiplier as Ceres at 1 of each.

    Ishida doesn't have an RCV multiplier and he caps at 8X compared to 10 for Ilm and 24 for Aizen. So it's a kinda lacking split. :(

    I really wish Zuoh would get an updated LS to make him a worthy escort for Ceres. But I'm not holding my breath for a 5* to get an LS on par with a 6*.

    Why does Ceres need a pairing like Ilm? To make the fire floors more manageable? If it's purely for burst I have never had that issue when I run her. 36x with rows pretty much crushes anything outside of Kali in Arena. Haven't attempted Arena 2/3 with her yet though.

    My only Ceres was evo'd into AnaCeres when she came out and then SI'd on my Ragdra for farming arena with my MAthena team. If I had another Ceres I would do the Revo. :(

    I have found this true for my hypermax Minerva team, even without running a puppeteer. Man, the idea that 36x is weak shows how fast powercreep has run

    I heart green more but Minerva/Ilm (don't have puppeteer) just plows through A2! 60x, 2.5x rcv, 50% dmg reduct and able to control multiplier for things like Sopdet, Parv, Vish is too good...

    Ceres/Ceres is pretty cruise and safe but lacks the power I'm used to with M/I so I have Freyja for bursts and I put in a triple donger for extra damage. But I'm also looking at other pairings like Ishida (48x) or ALB with that 48x and 2x rcv.

    My main problem with the Bei pairing is that he really limits the solving flexibility usually associated with Greek teams. IlmNerva and Hades are not penalized for ignoring rows/crosses/5-packs when swinging at Defoud.

    Vishnu seems like the best split lead for Ceres in terms of not imposing new solving requirements or excluding key subs. But his multipliers are lacking compared to the other Greek pairs.

    For farming A1 without growing a beard halfway through or dying of boredom. 36X just feels so fucking slow these days.

    If 36x is too slow for you then Ceres is not the lead for you.

    Then I am sad that she is so horribly outshined by some of her siblings from the same pantheon.

    What are the pairings for Neptune, Hades, and Venus?

    Neptune x Rukia is 60X ATK, 2X RCV. A little weird when Neptune is mainly rows, but TPA is definitely possible with Ryune, Orochi, etc.

    Hades x Aizen is up to 144X ATK, 2X RCV. IMO, Hades is the best lead for mooching off a friend's Aizen. Unlike Kanna and Yomigon, no subs are excluded based on type. Unlike Yomi or Okuni, you are not trying to balance crosses with combos. The double cross mechanic is confusing at first, but you can get away with single cross 90% of the time and you have orb time out the wazoo for when you NEED 2 crosses. Hades' active helps a lot for this.

    Venus should work with Ilm the same way as Minerva, but light resistance really has no place in Arena unless you plan to let LKali nuke you. I think Venus is really the runt of the bunch in terms of leads.

    Neptune could be a couple I'm guessing. Recent super Ult NepDra or even YY could work I suppose.

    Alas, Venus is the 3rd one I have, tho I have wondered about Mecha Zeus solo with her.

    Venus is better than ever as a Myr sub at least.

    Haven't made room for her (nor Kanna, nor Akechi #2) - currently running Wukong, Saria, Apoc, DQXQ and don't know who I'd take out.

    You have Kanna's godly DPS and aren't using her?

    Saria is probably the least essential member there.

    TBH, I find Myr to be too goddamn grindy these days with rows. I would probably give her a second chance if I could make a prong team for her, but she has all of two subs with more than two dongs and I have neither. So Myr just collects dust while Aizen/Lakshmi/Minerva run laps around Arena.
