    I'm probably leaving mine as D/D, although I might need a new best friend Cecil now that some people are switching over to L/D >.<

    I don't find the extra 3-4k HP that worth. It doesn't really make him any more "tanky" it only means you can survive hits over 31k, in which case I would prefer a higher damage multiplier

    I already quote you on News, now I quote again here :p
    Hmm, I think the trouble is Sub for LD. You need both Light and Dark, that mean you kick out popular Row orb changer like DQ, Wukong and Apollo. The lead also has no Row himself, pretty much you need 2 Apoc and 1-2 Tifa to shine.
    Also, by that logic, and like Saras/Krishna, you can use DD Row if you want, much better Sub pool.
    In short, I think both LD and DD is on pair, but LD has very limited row Sub.

    You're Muffinkins, right?
    I BFed the-friend-formerly-known-as Flaycrow, but I don't think we are BFs.

    Row build is an interesting idea. I like that TPAs are easier to combo with, and currently Satsuki is my biggest damage dealer, plus Cecil is getting a second TPA, which will be really nice with his already-high attack stat. On the other hand, rows make Akechi, ALuci, APanda, and Zuoh much more exciting than they used to be.

    Thinking about it, one of the nicest things about his broad LS is not being type-limited or forced into rows/TPAs. Dark has tons of subs with killer awakenings, so you could really mix and match for whatever the situation is. Now I'm imagining a team with D/R Haku, ALuci, and Castor on the same team to murder gods, or D/R Haku, Zuoh, and Halloween Chiyome for Dragons... @_@

    Edit: Totally forgot, but there's also Hanzo and Dill Sirius as fairly common double-killer sticks as well :O

    I have a solution for you, just roll another Cecil. Problem solved! Easy, right?
    BTW, Light Cecil does has 2 TPA.

    If you guys are short of D/D Cecils, mine has always been up since I rolled him in slot 1, he's Hyper with 3 Dark resists and 2 SDR. Still haven't inherited anything onto him though.

    Is anyone on here going to use Paladin? I have better light subs, but my few Cecil friends have stuck with D/D.

    I switched mine to L/D and found 1 other person that I sent a request to. Mine doesn't have anything inherited on it & it has time extend latents. I sent you a friend request.

    Thanks for the add :happy: As you can see, Paladin isn't that bad ;) A few notable and favorable spawns were Sopdet and Venus. Defoud was floor 18. Once I finished him, I crossed my fingers & prayed that DQ Hera didn't show up. She didn't and it was Hera-Is. I made the Kali floor closer than it needed to be. I only used Arthur & Kanna, but it knocked her out of rage mode. An Apocalypse was up & finished the deal. With Paladin, the most stressful part was going from floor 18 to 19 and hoping that I missed DQ Hera. It helps that I have good light cards. I also feel that Kanna with her awakenings and active are almost required to run Paladin for tougher content. If you switch back to D/D, its cool. Like any team, it all comes down to the subs that you have. Thanks again for the add even though I'm not sure if this is the place to post a clear since this guide is for Dark Knight Cecil, not Paladin :smuggrin:

    My D/D Cecil is 297, but I do have a second one leveled and skilled as Paladin. Might just throw a container on him too, even if I have no idea if I'd actually play him.

    I have to farm some more dark latents, but I agree with you that Paladin is underrated. Other than you, I don't have any other Paladin friends. I like that Paladin isn't orb hungry and damage control is easier than with some other leaders.

    Likewise. I used him a lot... I have a second max skilled that I could evo into Paladin, but I put so much effort into making my dark team subs.

    To you and anyone else who needs a new friend or BF D/D form, I have one up in slot 1 nearly 24/7. Send me an invite
    +297, Apoc inherit with 5 dark res latents

    ID is in my profile to the left of here, ign is Reddbeard

    Finally cleared Arena 1 with my Cecil team!

    The new buffs made the dungeon much easier to handle than before. Had bad luck trying to run it with him in the past, but the added 30% dark res really makes tanking much easier now.

    Rage, I understand that you're in control of Flaycrow's account and it's your prerogative how you choose to play, but for those of us who used his Dark Knight Cecil regularly or best friended him specifically for it, having you change it was rather inconvenient. I'm not saying you should change it back or anything, but just listing my frustration.

    Also, if you're planning to keep it as a Paladin now, perhaps start a new thread elsewhere. This guide was made for Dark Knight team building and discussion, so posting builds and videos for the light team is somewhat off topic.

    Man, I wish I have an Eschamali. I guess I can use A.Persephone as a poor replacemen.
    What badge are you using? 2s moving? Is this team tanky enough to not take 15% HP badge?

    Rage, if you get the name changed for the thread then feel free to continue posting here. I just thought it confusing for those seeking one team's info or the other right now. I have a second Cecil in Paladin form and his new buffs do make him viable. However my sub pool for him is pretty shallow by comparison.

    Vahneo, I actually completely spaced the badge for this team. I just had the default cost+ on it during this run. The team boasts 68% dark resistance with latents, so very tanky against dark spawns. Survivability would be even greater with 15% HP+ on.

    EDIT: Just checked and the badge gives me over 30.6k hp, which is awesome!
