look at the devs perspective. they want to make money. back in the days there weren't no guarantee banner. you could literally spend over 100k -150k crystal and still not get the banner child. this game is so generous already. this game has no requirement to spend time or money to progress. a game can't survive on everyone being F2P.
Ps. back then there were no HoR either.
Athena's main usage is reflect. You could equip her with midnight partner or excuse me. She should positioned in the center. She was op until wood Bathory and Pan got their ignition. Now he's totally useless against debuff team unless the opponent runs only 1 debuff. Most debuffer hits 2-3 childs at a time and she can only absurd 2 debuffs (2 types of debuffs) leaving the other child still getting debuffs. I have never once use her tap.How exactly does Athena Debuff Taunt work? 8
I would have just expand the child inventory. I think it cost 1000 crystals for 10 slots and 10000 gold to add another 10 slots then it repeats. the current child slot limit is 700 but it's still not enough for veteran players. there's are only a handful of child that I don't uncap but everyone is at least level 50. I am like you have many child that I don't ever use or plan on using but then all of sudden it became a viable child such as Thesis and Hermes. For me the main reason I keep certain or most child is you never know when or if one of those you consider useless or waste of child slot will become booster child for WB and or Narrative Dungeon. The final decision is up to you.Child starters, benchwarmers and buzzkillers 8
Majority of the dmg came from GHildra.
do not worry about what the the status of your accessories the only thing that matters is the evade. Petrify is easy to get on slot 2 and is only grade C. the only accessory that you might want to use top tier is on Hildra.
the only issue is critical only last for a short time chances are by the time you finally slide the critical hit is gone. you are also using BHildra so miss a few critical hit will make no difference with your one shot. basically if my GHildra get petrified on one fever, I can't one shot unless I paly manual for the next 2 fever 😞
if you are playing manuel you want to have all the buffs first before attacking if not at least try to get the critical buff, especially for fever you want all the buff so timing is critical. The only buff won't effect you is critical buff during fever unless you are using child that gives critical fever such as Cleopatra and Bride Hildra.
8 out of 10 of the top 10 Ragna ranks all have their attacker on slot 1. They don't do this for no reason 😀
