    Simply put, I have 4 woodpy floating around, a hyper maxed ult kaede, and a G/r liu bei. I could Awaken him, but that means shutting the door on verdandi-farming for good.

    Due to the ongoing padherder issues my box listing is very out of date, but to just list relevant green box:
    -Ult Kaede
    -Color Queen Hera-Beorc
    -Brave Vanquishing Deity Perseus
    -Archangel of Annihilation, Michael
    -Ult Avalong Drake
    -Awoken Freyja
    -Ult Verdandi
    -Ult Osiris
    -Restrained Dragon Hero Liu Bei
    -Awoken Ceres
    -Ult Grodin (relevant SKILL, esp given future buff)
    -Balboa (if it matters at all >.>)
    -Leeza (Skill relevance)
    -Earth Dragon Swordsman (skill relevance)

    and then a few spares like NY medjedra and summer armadel.

    So, thoughts, opinions, explanations, guidance, all appreciated.

    LiuBei isn't that useful unless you have at least 3 max skilled dios so i would use them on kaede since she is a great lead that can clear a lot of stuff and you have some good subs for her.

    Max skill isn't that important on awoken lb any way

    I don't see any downsides to making Awoken Liu Bei, unless you don't like to play coop (in which case he is not so useful). Given you have Leeza and Avalon Drake, once you've skilled up three Dioses a huge amount of difficult content will be fully clickable (in coop). See eg, here for what you can do :)

    I'm not even sure what you're asking exactly... If you are asking if you should py Kaede, I would say that's a definite no since her skill ups are availabe in trifruits. If you're asking if you should get Liu Bei's awoken form, I would say that's a definite yes unless you think that you will never play coop. ALB farming >>>>> Verdandi farming. Just work on skilling up a couple Dios's when his dungeon returns and then enjoy click farming about 90% of the content in the game.

    ALB is played mostly in co-op, where players can pop an active and sweep on every floor.

    Dios armada is NOT necessary, outside of a few key places and even those are easily handled with a heavy orb change and having a semblance of combo count and/or making two rows to double up on awakening boost.

    But since he is used in co-op, and shared skill boosts are totally a thing, and he's typically only used once per dungeon, an unskilled ALB will still be up when you need him. I think it's way more worthwhile to pii Kaede.

    i don't understand. are you asking if you should spend the woodpii on kaede or a.liubei?

    hypermax kaede means she is already max skilled

    a.liubei doesn't really NEED pii. his CD is low enough to be effective (in coop) for lesser content just once/dungeon.


    edit: @philsov you seriously ninja me at least once/week. :bored::p

    ALB with regular subs - Michael, Freya, Avalon, etc, will totally farm sweep murder things easily as fast as Verdandi. It's pretty much a straight upgrade.

    ALB in coop is often 18-20 skill boosts. He doesn't need the pii to be useful/fine.

    Kaede has no business being piied when weekday dragon fruit runs are 25 stamina. 1/3 drop chances, but still. Highly farmable.

    And we're getting Dimension Dragons, which are skill-up fodder for R/B/G JP dragon callers!

    ...Someday!

    EDIT: Here's Kaede's skill-up fodder:



    I'm looking forward to Sumire's skill-up fodder reaching NA.

    Neither. Kaede material is farmable. ALB doesn't need a quicker skill in co-op.

    Don't hate on Balboa. He's a 2/36/2 leader with a variety of tri-prong sub options.
