    My Goemon isn't max level (91) or max skill (SL5), but he's close on both. His only +eggs are from the Snow globe he ate, though.

    If I put Echidna in, I'd be even further below the HP mark than the lineup I considered.

    Bummer. :(

    Yea, I wish I saved a globe or two for goemon, don't really like stoning supers for exp and my current rate of leveling him is taking too long. Should have mine smaxed when challenge dungeons come around.

    Pretty easy as long as you don't get screwed first floor by spawn.

    Cleared challenge 9 in a few tries, despite the 2 off type team members and one auto-heal. Not hard if the right team is used, even if you lack yamatos like myself.

    only useful if Goemon was used in the turn prior, so that the heal does not take you out of the zone. A mediocre alternative to Yamato (tougher to kill while healing without popping another skill).

    It really depends on what you want to get out of that slot. In some cases, echidna would work (trying to get up other skills). In others, urd would be ok (killing while healing). If your goal is to heal to full, then mitsuki is alright too. Strawberry is only really good in specific cases like devil rush, on satan, chaining strawberry and ares to survive the beelzebub pre-emptive. If you really plan on running goemon, i would definitely roll for yamato in the upcoming gala. Even if you do not get yamato, mini yamato is okay.

    So... I am building a max-skilled Goemon, just for nostalgia reasons.

    I would like to run him though. I have Yamato, Freyr, Strawberry, Gigas, Mastering, Echidna, Femme. Anything farmable that I can use?

    PAD Academy Gigas will have a :awakening17::awakening15::awakening13: and only -200 RCV as a replacement for the usual Gigas.

    PAD Academy Gigas has substantially lower HP than usual Gigas. I'd rather take the HP than the row personally.

    Oh, that is a big difference.

    And, now that I look again, regular UVO Gigas is only -100 RCV instead of -200 RCV, too....

    So weighted stats favor the usual Gigas by a lot over the Academy version.

    For some reason I thought the Academy version was better than it apparently is.

    Howdy folks. Just wondering--is Goemon worth playing without a Ronia? I've never gotten a Ronia for the same reason I've never gotten a Kali (just wish I knew what the reason was). REM-wise, I have Minerva, Uriel, and Shiva (but it looks like no one runs an orb enhancer), plus some of the lesser non-gods (Red Dragon Knight, Little Red, Strawberry). I guess the setup would be:

    Minerva/Uriel/Gigas/??

    Would that be too little for C9s? And what other high-end content can Goemon run?

    Thanks :)

    not really sure as the only content i've beaten with him was sonia gran and this C9 (with ronia on the team). i guess you could always make another goemon if you don't have a ronia...i've seen some goemon teams running 2 goemons + the friend so 3 in total.

    I think he can be played just fine without ronia, except for c10s. With what you have you could potentially beat the next c9 (for example) with minerva/uriel/awoken shiva (if he is out in time)/echidna. Fl1 take 4 hits, delay, use shiva after saving reds. fl2 use skip turn to save up red orbs, then kill with row. fl3 minerva. fl4 goemon. fl5 uriel (shiva's awakenings help with the combo). fl6 goemon. fl7 take gravity to get in zone-> echidna to set up strong 2 row minerva board for kill. Helps immensely if uriel is not fully awoken (auto-heals can make things more complicated). If shiva is not yet released, then gigas can work if you use minerva on floor 1.

    Thanks. Are you suggesting Awoken Shiva just because of the low CD on orb enhance? If so, there's always Hera-Ur or something. Or maybe it's low CD defense reduction--I dunno what's in the next C9.

    The next C9 begins with extreme king metal dragon (up on padx), so its the low cd def reduction.

    ._. or instead of using a terrible sub, just use another goemon.
