    I think the reason eschamali was such a big deal for dark teams is before her it wasn't easy to stack dark oes. The best thing was HIza but that wasn't exactly an exciting option.
    Between Sanada, Urd, Dantalion, Squall, and of course Krishna there are tons of cards who can bring lots of oes. I might use elgenubi on my Krishna team or simply inherit her on Krishna. Xlb has triple prongs so it's hard for her to take his spot.

    Who even uses Krishna's active anyway? Seriously, I always end up using his inherited skill in hard dungeons unless I need to overwrite an enemy skyfall effect.

    Anyway, I rolled her as well, probably going to sub her in on Minerva X Ilm. Fingers crossed that she gets an UVO leader skill that's good in its own right and isn't restricted to machines.

    I put Elgenubi on my Krishna team and I don't regret it, she essentially gives the entire team an additional 35% damage (most likely even more than that) as well as a way to get rid of jammers/poisons without having to blow a board changer and we know how fickle board changers can be. Also, her recovery is pretty decent for what she is and Krishna teams generally run into low recovery issues depending on the team make up. She's not the greatest but she's a solid pick and I like her because she covers holes in my team that I can't really cover.

    Agreed I use her on my alts Krishna team and I love her. Damage output seems good and the double orb change + skyfall is nice. Dunno why people are saying she's bad for Krishna.

    Some people would rather pack in more rows/TPAs instead of adding OE, which are more passive additions to your team damage

    Well, the problem here is that I'm already sitting on 14 rows, it's not like I need more in that department and when it comes to TPAs, there's not many options outside of Femme that also provides recovery. Most 'good' options with TPA have very little to no recovery and I don't feel comfortable stalling with that. So the next best option when it comes to damage is OEs and Elgenubi has plenty of those on top of pretty decent stats and an active that creates enough fire orbs for the kill.

    My alt account runs
    sanada/urd/Yamato/Elgenubi
    OE: 20
    Rows: 10
    Prongs: 1

    My main runs
    revo kag/Yamato/A ares/xmas liu bei
    OE: 14
    Rows: 8
    Prongs: 8

    I think they are both really good teams, having both sanada and 20 OE really packs a punch on urd/sanada boards. Easy to hit 15m/sub and still hits hard when you can only make 2 rows and not guarantee third fire combo.

    Well then guys, her ult is out.

    1.5 to all stats (I think) for machine, and 4x when matching 5+enhance

    First disappoint is no god type added. 36x is also a little low, given her subs are lacking in rows, and TPAs can only do so much work by themselves. Of course, running a full team of Kuvia would technically work, but utility drops to almost nothing. Running multiple of herself on the team would mean that you'll be severely lacking in utilities and offensive awakenings.

    However, the stat bonus is pretty good. I don't see anything wrong with slotting her onto fire teams, and the artwork got a big upgrade, which is (personally) the best part

    I just inherented mines onto my Minerva for lulz. I usually solo A1 only though so I'm always looking for speed clearing teams for piis.

    I didn't expect her leaderskill to be gamebreaking or even in the least bit good. I think she was mostly made to be a sub anyway and it looks like that it'll stay that way. Stat boost was pretty much what I was expecting as changing her awakenings is a bit odd and as said, she's not really meant to be a leader.

    For match 5 leads, running TPAs on subs is the most orb efficient way to increase damage

    5 match + TPA = large numbers

    She didn't get TPAs herself, but if you were to run her as a lead, TPA subs are one way you could do it

    This, I rolled the most useless Eschalamis just like you (L and R)... Beach Escha is great for Meri while D.Escha is mandatory in many Dark Teams.

    Two things I am looking for now...

    Advice for where/how to use Elgenubi, and best inherits/skill transfers for my Krishna team.

    Haven't looked too hard (a bit busy over here atm) but was wondering if there were any awesome guides y'all recommend checking?
