    Wow, GungHo finally gave people a reason to want that sixth latent slot (apologies to anyone who sold it for the MPs). With six slots, you can get three killer latents (or the two-slot stat buff latents, but those seem less exciting).

    I'm really curious how the killer latents stack. Like, just for fun, suppose you put three devil killers on Noctis, who already has one devil killer. Assuming they stack at all, that could be:
    3 * 1.5 * 1.5 * 1.5 = 10.125x (!!)
    or
    3 + .5 + .5 + .5 = 4.5x (still pretty nice)
    or even
    3 * (1.5 + .5 + .5) = 7.5x

    Really any of these could allow you to build a specialized killer to obliterate one type of monster. Maybe god killer for Kali in Arena, plus all those other gods. Altho that could suck if you're enhanced vs. Sopdet/Parvati...

    Really crazy that they gave all these options to balanced for some reason. Also the stat boost is pretty solid for inheriting cards of the same attribute and gives me a reason to skill up a Venus along with my DD yomi for Radra or others. Also cool for the late bloomer dragons because of how long the skill is and they are free basically so you could enhance anything a little bit. Fafnir on ragnarok could be cool. Orochi on Isis is even better. Just keep unskilled verdandi a and slap them on kaedes. Ronove on Ronove which people already do anyways.
    Lots of options. Hope the next stream they focus on catching up doddling pantheons

    I wonder how the type restrictions work with evolutions. Like if you evo'd Horus to R/R (balanced) form before reincarnating him, maybe you can stick any killers on him, then reverse evo, awaken, and reincarnate to have some unusual killer setups that shouldn't normally be possible?

    They will have to address this, probably something along the lines of the same warning you get when you ultimate something with a new skill that it will be reset. So you'll be prompted that you'll lose said awakenings by going that route.

    Have fun unlocking that 6th slot.

    1.5x is pretty solid. Kind of like the rock-paper-scissors they got between the three stat based typings.

    Getting 1-2 isn't too crazy for long-time players. Beyond that it's tough unless you can win crowns.

    It's definitely a super limited resource, so better to think very carefully before investing. But I'd have trouble resisting triple killer latents, if they stack decently.

    Great point. I would guess they are additive, like the resist latents. But that 10.125X would be worth burning a 297, for sure!

    All pre-existing element resist awakenings have always been additive.

    Killer awakenings have all to this point been multiplicative, so it stands to reason these latents will be as well.

    This is absolutely perfect for my ARa MZeus carry team. I can stack machine killers on most of the subs, which'll up my clear rate to near 100% (with the only deaths being due to stupidity of the partner).

    Hopefully these killers don't cost too much MP. I'll buy them even if they do, tbh. I have no interest in any of the current MP cards.

    Don't worry, they won't cost MP. YamaP mention that they will be available (only) in Arena 2+3.
