    I was just looking at your other orb changers because as you stack more rows, the need for Thor goes down. However, if you don't have many, I guess that works. I just don't like Thor's active because it seems like a downgrade, bumped up the cd three turns and gave it a comparatively small power boost for only 1 turn though. Actives are great and you won't need it too often so should be fine.

    Hmmm, my opinion:

    Pros:
    • Badass looking
    • 5 ROWS!!!
    • 5 ROWS!!!
    • Stats are nice
    • SBR is nice
    • Void damage is cool
    • Full board changer
    Cons:
    • Long cd
    • Full heart board, requies a heartbreaker combo and probably orb enhance because it is a full light board
    • Basically inferior to other board changers

    That is about it lol, so basically just he is meh compared to other board changers but great anyway. And badass.

    What about Raph / Wukong pairing for a very stall able 2/6/2 team?

    Also: I think I am the only person in NA still hoping to build a JttW team. 16 skill levels on Zhu Bajie is just perverse, tho. S/he better get one hell of an uvo

    I've paired Raph/wukong before with success in the right situation. That pairing undoubtably is beefier.

    I also wonder if Raphael has replaced Indra. I won't be investing plus eggs to indra now.

    same lol

    i think the main thing i see in him rn is that i have no good board changer and he is a pretty good board changer lmao, i dont like the need for an orb enhancer here and all but shit, he has half as many rows as my whole team and then that beast 2 turn null damage too

    imagine a lineup of like beelz->dq hera

    now that i imagined it i want him more LOL

    but ya, imagine that for a second

    imagine

    keep imagining

    change ur pants

    go roll

    Yay, got my first Wukong clear. He still needs some love--level 50ish and skill level 2 now, but I'm working on evolving 24 light fairies.

    TEC - No RCV goodness



    I like how, with the buffed LS, you can wipe trash waves (or finish off a harder monster) with a 4-orb TPA attack.

    Deats:
    Valk, DQ, Venus, @bangbang 's Wukong hypermax
    Ilm almost max-skill, but he was only used on 29.
    Actually ran out of orb-changers except for Ilm vs. Athena. Fortunately she made light twice in a row so I could kill her. Actives started coming back as I reached the boss.
    Maybe should have brought another orb-changer instead of Venus.

    That's a tough one.

    Since actives are so crucial I think the anti cool down one will be important.

    Otherwise, I think I would lean toward hp to take bigger hits.

    Element resist is good too but that's more dungeon specific (so maybe a rainbow sub to take those 100% gravities))

    I thought about time extend but on major floors the board will be mostly light or I'm using Venus so time extend won't do much.

    Probably not dark resist, Indra should suffice (or even hot Raph), maybe some blue resists for Hera-Is because of high HP+no type advantage but letting her make blue orbs once should give you plenty of blue orbs to change. RCV I don't think is a huge issue when plussed and ATK is a nope too imo. HP might be useful, depends on what you are sitting at and what it'll help you do I guess. Maybe like make a rainbow resist for leads seeing how we don't have any haste sub that would make the anti cool down one great but eh, I don't know if only putting that one one sub would be good enough for us.

    I don't think Raph is really needed. 2-3 more rows is just overkill when you already have 7 at the very least (with Wukongs + Venus), and any other subs with rows puts you very close to 10. Probably not worth giving up a low-cd orb changer or a straight-up better board changer for Raph.

    Now that Thor's burst goes on for 2 turns, I can see him being a pretty good replacement for Venus especially with his haste. I also have a feeling 2x is slightly higher than what Venus's OE can offer even with all the OEAs the team has.

    If you have only 6 off-color orbs and you make two big blobs of light, Venus' orb enhance actually comes out to around or slightly over 2x (but it's less value if a lot of the orbs were natural light orbs that were already enhanced). And her cooldown is 5 vs 12. No haste and no two turns though. I'd say Venus is better normally, but maybe there are some situations that would favor Thor (certainly if you needed the SBR).

    Having more OE on the team doesn't increase the value of Venus' active, unless you have a light match with no enhanced orbs at all, which is unlikely.

    EDIT: Actually the better solution is to turn your Wukong team into a Thor/Saria team (when Saria is released), but that's a mean thing to say in this thread maybe.

    Athor is too long of a CD to really compete with Venus, he can replace her for sbr needs though and you won't lose rows. The cd is a killer though, no way you can beat the reusability of a 5 turn orb enhance with three rows and cuteness.
