Recommended Setup for Current RaidTIPS
So, it seems the devs reeeeeaaaaalllllllly regretted giving us Bridal Hildr because they went out of their way to punish us for using her this raid. DoT, Death Heal, and Reflect all at once = KYS generally. The accepted strategy so far seems to be to use L. Mona to apply free Vamp (free as opposed to conditional like N. Mona) and just outweigh the reflect damage to gun down Davi. However, for those of us not willing to break the crystal bank (Salome and Summer Shooters incoming, yaaas) it appears a different set of tools is required in order to keep thicc waifu on the squad. Obviously, Bridal Hildr DPS. There has to be a reason why I burned the crystal and onyx bank down to +6 her and max her skills. I WILL NOT BE DETERRED! DoT is fine, if not in fact NECESSARY. Without it, N. Mona has no way to apply Vamp on her own, meaning Reflect = auto death. Along with the bonus to damage on her slide, N. Mona is a must. Reflect is garbo. I hate facing Hades pvp teams in Unknown battles cuz I can't spam crit strats without blowing myself up. Furthermore, it lasts for a goddamn MINUTE! An interesting perspective was to use our newest donut receptacle Limos and her tap skill that steals buffs. Should Vamp be too situational, Limos could eliminate the worry pretty easily and clear the way for fever without worry. Death Heal is either a non-factor or terrible. For Vamp spammers, DH ain't a problem: they heal themselves in the end. However, for those using Neptune to take advantage of that juicy Double-Edge, DH = KYS, again. Devs won't let us use our toys, sigh. Debuff cleansing becomes necessary and while some have claimed Pomona to be their savior, an old comrade from the Rita Ragna is better. Catgirl is back and her tap removes DH and slide buffs Hildr even further. So, risk takers can compose a squad like: B. Hildr / N. Mona / Pantheon / Battle Kitty Neamhain / Neptune - Maximize DPS - Strong burst healing with Double Edge without being too concerned about DH - Vamp to handle Reflect - DoT cleanse More cautious folk can opt for: B. Hildr / N. Mona / Limos / Pantheon and Bathory / Neptune and Neamhain - Sacrifice DPS for nearly guaranteed fever (Loses crit bonus or double edge) - Reflect a non-factor - Healing variable with Pan/Bath; non-factor with Nep/Neam Those seeking to auto through and mosey on by: B. Hildr / N. Mona / Limos / Neptune / Neamhain - Buff and debuff removal will proc often based on mechanics; truly unfortunate runs will have Hildr dying in the first fever - No one-shots this way, but a chance to ensure the top spot for rewards in each raid Feel free to leave any suggestions or ideas you've come up with to deal with the spoiler that is Davi. Always willing to learn!
