    Assuming someone has a Yusuke, how good is Mega d... Megatron anyway?

    They have the same Awakenings and very similar actives along with identical ATK multi. But ~2x the HP with 1/2 the RCV and no real desire to heal except when you really wished you already healed seems worse.

    Yusuke likely would have the better sub pool too; being a little picky with orb changers is usually more reliable and future proof than requiring a specific typing. Megatron just carries the advantage of potentially running more off colour subs.

    I mean I know for me personally, and my posts in old threads will reflect it, have an affinity for Rodin and D.Meta and thats why Ive been excited for each since the announcements. I actually built an RCV stacked team to kind of yoyo my health through dungeons as opposed to focusing on sweeping floors. But I think the buzz is greater than just what people like me would provide.

    I guess I just want a dream team circle jerk thread for Megatron to clarify things

    FYI it's not 1/2 RCV... it's just 1x RCV.

    I think the big difference is that she gives 2x HP but also a shield, which gives her way more (effective) HP to work with than Yusuke. Yusuke is easier to activate though but that's the design tradeoff.

    I meant half the RCV of Yusukes team. But that was excluding a shield I completely spaced on. Guess effective stats are ~7/225/1.8 which is wild!

    I guess Choo choo, all aboard the hype train

    Under the condition that she's <80% HP and makes 7 combos (which is meh). She's good but I just think that she'll be reserved for some of the hardest content there is now rather than running her for everything due to how much effort she requires. Her sub pool is also pretty limited, so that's another downside.

    Quick question, the news post on PadX says her active reduces her HP by 20% but the card page says reduces HP by 80%.

    Anyone know how big the suicide actually is?

    Izanagi solves a lot of her under 80% problems he got buffed to 3 turn CD and with her massive HP accidentally healing to full rarely happens and with eir on the team you can still heal nicely just by making a heart tpa

    Personally planning to run Izanagi, eir, Myr, DKali

    Suicide is 20%. If you're at full HP her AS will allow you to active her HP condition.

    My only concern is that neither she or her subs provide much movement time. I'm only kind of so-so when it comes to combo'ing but if I'm needing to make 7+ combos consistently with ~7 TEs or so, it is going to be rough. I've been playing Vraska too much and her time extend leaderskill is too much of a crutch LOL. I'm still very much on the fence with Megatron and I feel that in itself is going to mean that I won't be playing her much.

    Im finding 10.5 seconds the sweet spot to hit 7c most of the time off natural boards. Maybe slightly less with easier match requirements (lost time chasing G/D or L/B for Yusuke/Fio or B/B on Amatsu or cascading over a TPA with M.Rodin). So that practically speaking means 9 Fingers after the Badge. Drop that to 5 off 3 Subs after Izanagi & leaders, even fewer if add a few Latent Fingers or have a Full Metal Alchemist Watch. Add a Yomi (or NYE Yomi if you're big-dicked blessed with one), A.Raph or Indra and your laughing.

    One option is to use Rushana as your FUA. Her AS will give you some more move time every four turns.

    I do happen to have Planar as a FUA sub so she's likely a better alternative. Still though, looking at it, I'm gonna need an unbinder as well which means that OdinDra will likely be my go-to which furthers dilutes my colors. My other option is to attempt to run a full unbindable team which isn't completely out of the question. I'll definitely need to think about it some more.

    I don't think I've seen OdinDra on many team compositions, probably because there's so much HP to work with you can just stall out most binds without issue.

    Hi everyone. I'm curious what are you talking about ? Dark Metatron? Is she getting a new Evo?

    More because Eir is so much better. She is cleric, also has high as hell RCV, is on color AND the most important: she has 3 heart+ which basically allows DMeta to heal. She also makes a heart row which can be useful for general heals (after matching which is important compared to Odindra heal) and can also guarantee FUA.
