    I'm waffling on whether I want to get a RaDra.

    On one hand, I have all the subs, but an extra D.Kali. Fat Chocobo could work, I could buy RagDrag (but that one is a little ways off). Not sure if there are some other ideal subs for a missing 2nd D.Kali.

    On the other hand, I've never really played color teams--some L.Kali, but not really, so the learning curve is there. Also, is it really going to be a that much of a powerhouse? Maybe?

    So, I guess my question is: what other sub for a U.Evo RaDra team with only 1 D.Kali? Also, any other balancing tips for making the decision?

    Ragnarok is the best replacement but some people will say his killers will get you into trouble. This is occasionally the case but I haven't found it that bothersome on teams where I play him. You could always use a second Isis and inherit another utility on her like a delay or something but Chocobo works ok enough for most people.

    Other substitutes for D Kali you should look out for in the future would be Sherias Roots who you could inherit on Isis and make your own D Kali or Lightning when Final Fantasy comes back eventually.

    You can always just not fully awaken RagDrag. I keep my Bamboo not fully awaken because it makes things complicated vs Parvati in A1.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm curious if RaDra is a "go to" for any dungeons that you just don't have teams for otherwise?

    Do you farm A1 with RaDra? Just curious if the killers are an issue there.

    What's normally in flex for you?

    I'll have to start practicing with some other rainbow leads. I just realized the 1player health pool is going to be 60-70k depending on the subs, so it's not like the team can't take some hits. Plus there's like 4+seconds of move time.

    Maybe I need to consider my rainbow reluctance...

    I was actually thinking I'd put RSusano on A.Isis...
    I can see Vishnu working well. Assume the active is not used as much, though.

    Thanks--good read through on a lot of the options to consider. Seems like 1 DKali still is a bit of a risk to the team, but with a Kanna, I feel like even on a 5 match board, the damage may be good enough for most things. Congrats on getting the mats, by the way

    I have 3 D Kalis and Christmas Kali. I don't use Ragnarok on Ra Dragon. I do use him on Sherias Roots and Ronove. I am careful to scale back the damage on floors that would cause me problems like Sopdet which is easier than people make it out to be with practice. Since the new Ra Dragon will have better damage control than the current one you should be fine more often than not. Keep in mind he doesn't get Ra Dragon's full multiplyer anyway since he isn't god type.

    Revo ra with a sherias or lightning inherit is a great option.

    Well...rolled a Sherias Roots yesterday. I feel like missing a 2nd DKali was holding me back from committing to RaDra, but with Sherias, seems like the team can come together.

    Thinking this now:
    RaDra / D.Kali / R.Ra (Sherias Roots) / A.Isis (TBD) / Kanna (Facet) / RaDra

    If I have an Orochi to SI, where would that go? RaDra? What other key inherits are there? R.Susano on A.Isis?

    Revo Orochi on Isis for massive extra HP.

    Unawoken Indra on Radra for stats boost and Hephaestus dragon delay protection. And combined with A.Isis's shield on the first hit, unawoken Indra gives you 7 turns to kill Heradra.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one using Vishnu. His fingers and dongs are awesome.
