    Yeah. Have to wait and see the official full reveal.






    And then wait for the changes that come after they get flamed. :p

    Most optimal boards are still the same.

    20/10 and 19/11 are still the same since you still do a row. 24/6, 23/7 and 22/8 are also the same. 21/9 does change because there you'd get 5 and 4 heart combos. There you just do a heart row and maybe set the other heart combo to work as a sky fall but it doesn't really matter.

    18/12 is also the same... 5 hearts or less are obviously the same. Over 12 they kind of don't really work but tbh those boards are extremely unlikely to happen (unless we are talking about using Bonia) and if they do then I honestly have no idea. 9/21 works, so does 12/18, but many others just don't.

    About team building. I'm starting to kind of not need Baggi... with Andromeda's upcoming buff I have a... dilema:

    Lak/Karin/Amber/Andro/Baggi/Lak is my go-to team now. Question is, is a second Andromeda worth it? Her stats are just extremely good with her UUVO. Compared to Gabriel:

    Pros of Andromeda over Gabriel.

    - Higher HP (1.5k aprox).
    - One TPA.
    - Time extend.
    - Bind clear awakenings.

    The other way around:

    - Higher ATK (500 aprox).
    - Higher RCV (150 aprox).
    - 2k auto-RCV.
    - Active can work with Karin (doesn't change wood to anything but it still works since you get hearts).
    - Active isn't the same as Andromeda which does matter while running two Andromedas.

    Gabriel has quite a lot of pros, pretty much on every department other than HP. So, question is, is it worth it to run a second Andromeda over Gabriel just for that HP?

    What's your hp now, and what would it be with 2 Andros? Will that extra hp make a difference in any dungeons for tanking hits? If it helps you get over a threshold, I'd say run double in those dungeons. If it doesn't get you over a threshold, I'd go with Gabe over 2nd Andro.

    I got this from Asteres twitter back during when she got her buff. If anyone has a different one i would also like to see it.

    I know that's the logic I should follow, I don't even have Gabriel, it's just that I don't want to hyper-max yet another Andromeda.

    This might be the last of the Challenge dungeons before Lakshmi buff? We should be getting 8.6 which comes with the Lakshmi buff (at least in jp it did) during todays maintenance.

    So how's everybody liking the buffs? I'm loving doing 39x damage for one extra orb :p

    Like, literally, I'm doing 3 rows' worth of damage for 2 rows now, and that's exciting! I threw A.I&I and Bodin onto my regular team and kept at it until I got a 3 row board, results of my "max damage" test:


    So bursting for 60M damage is a thing now.

    Using my actual team (not fully hypered) I'm able to consistently get about 3M damage per card, (except amberjack, he's a loser and only hits 2M. :p) using only a 2 row + 1TPA board, which are pretty common. More than enough for everything except Kali and Mecha Hera, and hypering the team should help with that. (Not Mecha Hera, screw that level SO HARD. And screw Mecha Zeus EVEN HARDER. The blue absorb floor will be a big deal in both of them, and the no hearts for Zeus makes it pretty much impossible.)

    Yeah, 39x is pretty nice. I've been running Skyway for hp latents as stamina allows this week, and I basically get 3-4 combos on LiFive with 2 blue rows, a heart row, and maybe another 3-match.

    This morning, with 2 rows and only 4 combos, Hermes hit for ~3.8 million with no enhance. Before today, he was hitting for 2-2.5 million for the same (makes sense since the multiplier is 60% higher).

    She wrecks both shiva and bastet
    shiva in damage
    bastet in survivability
    honestly her new l.skill update made her S tier in na even w/o baggi

    And yes 2 skulds are not necessary.

    Well, to be blunt, Lakshi obliterates both Shiva and Bastet. First off, she has higher base damage, secondly, rows deal more damage when bursting than TPAs do. Third, her teams have naturally high HP (28K+ hypermaxed) and recovery, and the rcv is boosted by her LS as well (8K+ rcv is pretty common hypermaxed). So, as it stands right now, Lakshmi is the best of the three. (In my opinion. Which, granted, is pretty biased, but you DID ask in the Lakshmi thread, so yeah. :p)

    Skuld is not the greatest sub in NA (better green to blue Active Skills cards in JP), so one is the maximum.

    Hmm. I'm starting to get torn about which way to go.

    I was pretty sure that Alrescha and Sumire would be my next 2 Water hypers, but Lakshmi is making a case for herself, too.

    Next 10x if I can get 6 again like last time maybe I just go Alrescha, Sumire, Akechi, Eschamali, Lakshmi and I&I so I don't have to choose. :p
