About Green Guan Yu 1.1. Lore Guan Yu was a general serving under the warlord Liu Bei in the late Eastern Han dynasty. He played a significant role in the civil war that led to the collapse of the dynasty and the establishment of the state of Shu Han – founded by Liu Bei – in the Three Kingdoms period. As one of the best known Chinese historical figures throughout East Asia, Guan's true life stories have largely given way to fictionalised ones, most of which are found in the historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms or passed down the generations, in which his deeds and moral qualities have been lionised. Guan is respected as an epitome of loyalty and righteousness. Guan Yu was deified as early as the Sui dynasty and is still worshipped by many Chinese people today, especially in southern China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and among many overseas Chinese communities. He is a figure in Chinese folk religion, popular Confucianism, Taoism, and Chinese Buddhism, and small shrines to Guan are almost ubiquitous in traditional Chinese shops and restaurants. He is often reverently called Guan Gong (Lord Guan) and Guan Di (Emperor Guan). His hometown Yuncheng has also named its airport after him. Source 1.2. In-game God/Physical/Dragon HP: 4118 (5108 w/ +99) ATK: 1337 (1832 w/ +99) RCV: 182 (479 w/ +99) Active: Change Heart & Poison orbs to Wood orbs. Recover 3000 HP. Bind recovery for 3 turns. Cooldown: 12 Turns (6 min) Awakenings: Leader Skill: Virile Courage Effect: Physical & Dragon type cards ATK x3.5, RCV x1.5 when HP is greater than 20%. Green Guan Yu was laughed and joked about on the forums as a terrible pull to get from the REM. His typing was God/Physical and his leader skill was 3.5x ATK and 1.5x RCV to Physical monsters while HP was above 50%. Why was he ridiculed? At the time there were very few green Physicals to use so many people didn't use Green Guan Yu (GGY for short) or just used a mish mash of various Physical monsters they had in their box. Another thing that him unpopular was his conditional that he removed his buffs when below 50%. Ye, Physical monsters have the very high HPs, however they also have some of the worst RCV. That means if you take a big hit, it takes many heart orbs and combos to gain that HP back as opposed to a healer team or a Red Sonia team that can heal back tens of thousand of HP with just 3 simple heart orb and some combos. GGY was not used by many and very few green Physical typing monsters were being introduced (as opposed to the more popular healers and devils). Because of this, it all made sense when GGY was given a buff: 3.5x ATK and 1.5x RCV for Physical AND Dragon type when HP is 50% or more! This gave GGY much more to work with and the pool of monsters he could dip into increased substantially! But GungHo wasn't done there, they were clearly enjoying themselves with GY buffs. Over many buffs, they buffed GGY's active to a shorter cooldown, made it also break poison and then gave it three turn bind clear. Playing around with his leader skill more, they knocked his conditional down to 20%, making it far less of an issue than ever before. They even gave him another bind resist awakenings to make him unbindable, getting rid of that pesky 50% chance. And, to top it all off, they made him a Dragon type! Why? Because he is riding a dragon of course! A typical GGY will have a lot of HP due to the naturally high HP of the types he works with. The ATK will be in a medium to high range but the RCV will be pretty low, becoming passable with the leader skill boost but nothing like a Sonia team's RCV. Your goal for this team is not to stall and wait hundreds of turns like a Odin/Ama team, a double Lucifer, double Fruit Dragon team...you're gonna go in and just burst through entire levels as you aren't able to take huge hits. 2. Pros and Cons Pros Can run a hybrid row/TPA team easily High HP without a multiplier A challenge to play therefore very rewarding 20%, while also being a really low threshold and easy to avoid, conveniently means you can heal up with one or two actives no matter what Bind clear Cons: Limited number of subs even after buff Most of the better subs are REM-only Very few farmable monsters for his team. Others, like Melon Dragon, can come from present dungeons, but are very infrequent. Not a lot of people use him, although there are dedicated members who can fill that gap Poor RCV so you can't stall forever, like a Sonia team While the conditional is really low, he is still an HP conditional leader Although the cons list is pretty long, it can basically be summed up as somewhat REM reliant, poor RCV and conditional leader skill, so no need to be scared of that list. With the 20% buff to GGY's leader skill, the cons rarely come into play.
