    Basically this.

    Kaede is the biggest offender with her 75% damage reduction shield that works on everything and every turn while pumping out 1-10 million damage super easy. Her active also does everything you want.

    Ceres has a pretty bad active. Her damage reduction only works on select enemy types. Her damage is weak by comparison.

    Her damage is weak but you don't need more if you have good subs for her. Generally a super easy A3 clear unless you get consecutively horrible spawns.

    Hi All,

    I made my Revo Ceres but I don't have any Friends using her, so she's basically a sub.
    If I had a larger Friend base for her she'd be in the rotation (and I'd give her a +297 i'm saving) but other leads like Minerva have all the attention.

    Well, I fell into the hype of using her as a lead. You have to understand that I'm a shit player and I need every orb changer I have on Myr because I can't reliably flush the board
    Its catch 22 because my Ceres isn't up because no one else has her up.

    I also have a better team for Minerva than Ceres. I think. What's the ideal Ceres team?

    Complicated :(

    I have an hypermax Ceres but don't use her a lot because I have trouble making a team for her that isn't crap ~
    You may find more clues in the mono-green thread, but basically you want rows and orb-changers. The problem is Ceres not being an orb changer herself.
    Another problem is, a lot of orb-changer will get rid of your dark orbs (forget Michael and Liu Bei), and not a lot of board changers are Ceres-compatible (forget Verdandi, Sylvie, Avalon Drake and Skuld for exemple).
    → Zuoh (GFE) and Cauchemar (farmable, has an Ult Evo with rows) are great board-changers for her. When Romia will be available in NA she'll be one of your best board-change option. Meimei is awesome for this too.
    → You can use a Perseus and Green Guan Yu for their rows and orb-change
    → Kaguyahime is a ok-ish farmable option, mostly to fix boards (be careful with dakr orbs tho). The good thing is she has an UVO so her stats are nice, and she brings 2 SB.
    → You could use a Yamatsumi but from my experience his skyfall increase is somehow meh. It doesn't make a real difference to bother using him if you have something better.
    → Also, Zeal.

    My box is not very Ceres compatible so these are my only options, hope it helps !

    (oh also, the nice thing with REvo Ceres is she should be able to easy cheese Khepri)

    Hi All,

    I like the idea of Perseus and Green Guan Yu, and Zuoh for sure:
    Ishida Mitsunari and Green Sonia - wood/dark conversions and rows
    GValk and Spica and A.Artemis - wood conversions (leaves dark alone) and some utility

    If I ran REvo Ceres I'd probably run Perseus/Ishida/GSonia/variable-sub-for-dungeon-with-default-of-Zuoh.

    just some possible options...
    IMG_8629.JPG
    • Ishida makes green, dark heal
    • Cauche makes green, dark, red
    • Asty + Cauche = bicolor
    • Karin SI on Ceres + Sasuke = bicolor

    Hi All,

    I went ahead and +297ed my Revo Ceres - she's fun to use!
    My first time running her in a more involved dungeon was Ultimate Dragon Rush (older dungeon but fun), the last battle was just kind of funny to watch. :)

    @Awardius , @Freddyfudrucker , @CloudStrife , @Ryeee : If it's okay I'm sending you all invites, I could use some Friends please. :) I got a bounceback on Freddy though due to a full list, may try later when it's open.

    Thanks!

    No problem. I'll add you. Full disclosure I use probably 10 different leads on a regular basis. Chances of seeing Ceres up are not great. That said just ask and I can put her up. My Ceres has poison inherit for A3 on her.

    Thanks! :) No worries, I tend to rotate around too!
    It's just nice having active Friends who don't mind putting up a rarer lead on request :)

    I'm most of the way to hypering Ceres. My current team is Ishida/Astaroth/Australis/Meimei. People say I shouldn't use Australis, but he combos with both Ishida and Meimei, so deal with it.

    Anyway, team seems cool. But yeah, difficult to find find friends. I do seem to have a couple friends with Ceres up most of the time, likely people who posted in this thread. One of my BFs put up a hyper Ceres once. I forget who.

    Oh, @Ryeee is my Ceres bf. I might ask for a hook-up when we get the next Descended Challenge set...

    You can add me. I have her up in the first slot. It is hard for me to run her or even farm with her because I have one or two friends up at any given day

    Thanks! I checked and we are Friends already :)
    Yeah, I ran into that the first time I wanted to use her, but with the adds from this thread it helps - please let me know if you ever need a lead-switch too!
