    Ya, Lumiel's awakenings were mediocre before, the triple TPA is a nice addition but DKali's other awakenings are too amazing.

    Curious about DIza vs DMeta and if one is always better or only sometimes. Thoughts?

    DMeta:

    -Orb Enhance Active (5 CD) = shield up 20% of the time
    -RCV
    -Unbindable (not necessary since Durga covers Water)
    -3 skill boosts

    DIzanami

    -3 turn shield (6 CD) = shield up 50% of the time
    -Godly HP
    -Autoheals for slightly easier healing
    -Dark resist for 100% gravities and DQ Hera

    In general, DIzanami tends to be much more useful as DMeta's row awakenings go to waste.

    Was thinking...
    I got a Dupe Durga. Is she a good sub for herself, in her D/R evolution?

    Not really...you're much better farming Izanami to fill the red slot.

    You could keep her for uuvo or something, I guess.

    Just checking with the Durga masters.
    Is there any use for 4 of them?

    As a clone army, 5 floors of x2 in a row + 1 panic/utility sub, for basically x50 against a 5 floor dungeon.
    Except then there's no board change guarantee, and not having a natural solvable while at 1 life seems...dangerous.

    Errrrr I'd say keep 3 at most, 2 at the least if you're starved for space/want MP. There's no use for dupes of the current uevo Durga, she's kinda redundant in dupes, but given that she has potential in her later uevos along with the rest of her pantheon siblings, getting rid of all except one isn't the best idea either~

    And you would be very limited in utility options as you would need to cover the two other colors with it....
    I don't think it's viable... Even U&Y teams don't run more than one extra U&Y in the team...

    Another thing is: you would also need to regain HP evey turn in order to use Durga on every floor and you can't face any preemptive strikes...

    Overall, I don't think Durga is a good sub for herself...

    Keep 2. One for the uuvo, one for the awoken.. if it ever happens.

    Man, I really hope she gets another TPA, SBR and Devil Killer in her uuvo. All these amazing cards these days.. sigh.

    So my one roll this last Godfest finally netted me Durga. I am quite excited, seeing as she is the last god I really wanted. Here is my proposed team for her:



    I also have a max skilled Pandora and Grape dragon as options. D.Iza still needs a few levels and is only skill level 4, but is an option as well. Aamir exists, but as thus far refused to skill up.

    Am I on the right track here? This build seems very offense heavy, but I worry I'm not packing enough utility

    I don't think you need both Lumiel and DKali... and DKali is a quite a lot better..... Other than that, the rest of the team looks good to me.

    Durga is an offensive powerhouse but is a bit of a glass cannon. Her subs are apt to be bound or skill-blocked but the dark-TPA focused is way fun to play and her leader skill is so easy to proc at her uVo. I think your proposed team is your best option. Especially once Lumiel gets her UUUvo.

    It's true that once lumiel will have her 3 TPAs, she'll be a lot better.

    Lumiel is mostly there for firepower and the cute factor (I can't stand looking at Pandora,) but she is unquestionably the flex spot. And I've never considered her active the kill shot, but a secondary round when I'm in backed into a corner, or to save my big gun (Kali) for a few more turns.

    Pandora will be a shoe in for skill bind dungeons (I'll only be 80%, but it's better than 60%) and of course for the added RCV and heartmaking/offense active. That was my logic, but I always like hearing the wisdom of those who run the lead more than I have.

    Thanks everyone! I'll be adding myself to the friend list as soon as I can finish a few other projects and get her Uevoed.

    I play shiva and Tsubaki very regularly. I'm also in need of durga friends! Looks like i'm adding you and @mtb911. My Tsubaki is hyper, Durga still needs work though.

    I was thinking for Durga: Durga/Persephone/DKali/DIza/Flex. I don't really know what would be the best durga team I can make right now, but it seems like Perse and DIza will be staples. I also have Pandora, Satsuki, Nephthys, DMeta, Okuni, Z8, Loki and Lumiel. Maybe Lumiel for the last spot when her uevo arrives?

    Add away! I'll give some undeserving chap the boot to free some space. :D

    My Tsubaki is only one godfest old, so she's quite underdeveloped. However, now that I'm starting to finish off plussing Femme and Leilan, she will be the recipient of many more plus eggs......and hopefully a few skillups in the next couple weeks!

    Durga will be next on the to do list. Everyone on my proposed team is max skilled (with the exception of Lumiel,) and almost completely levelled. So she'll be ready to go quite quickly as a result.
