    Hello there. Welcome to the Unit Glossary. The aim of this project is to create a mini unit review for each available unit in the game, highlighting the pros and cons of each unit and where they would best fit. I will keep the reviews as minimal as possible and will not be mentioning specific stats. Please do wait a bit as I fill up the threads. I will continue to maintain this thread as new units come. Before we begin, let's have some short disclaimers.

    FIRE

    Notable Units: Claire, Lava, Owen, Ruby, Bestie

    FREE UNITS - Progress: COMPLETE
    Spoiler


    [​IMG]
    Flame Legend Vargas
    Best For:
    Mono Fire Leader (100% ATK, 30% HP), rainbow arena team member
    Best Traits: Good LS, UBB attack down is very useful, great normal hitcount for arena
    Worst Traits: Pretty Meh outside of UBB and damage dealing
    Given that right now there are very few good 7* fire units, Vargas finds a niche in the arena. Generally meh anywhere else.
    [​IMG]
    Inferno Beast Zegar
    Best For: CRIT lead? But there are so many better options. Mono fire filler
    Best Traits: Looks like Vega / Wolverine
    Worst Traits: weird imp cap distribution for someone with LS geared toward dishing out damage


    [​IMG]
    Imperial Smith Galant
    Best For: stuff that needs DEF buff :\
    Best Traits: Def buff and 5 BC fill
    Worst Traits: Mixed bag of combinations, low stats

    [​IMG]
    Seria 6*
    Best For: Arena
    Best Traits: relatively low bb and sbb fill, great stats for a 6* free unit
    Worst Traits: not really very useful and with a GQ that makes her hard to get, kind of not worth it.



    [​IMG]
    War Rocket Cayena
    Best For: Arena, Mid content, BB Spam, filler
    Best Traits: BB with 12 hits and paralysis and a normal hitcount of 12
    Worst Traits: No 6* form in sight

    [​IMG]
    Passion Sibyl Freya
    Best For: content that has water, earth, and dark enemies, DEF and REC buff on top
    Best Traits: three element buffs
    Worst Traits: high BB and SBB cost, weak stats


    [​IMG]
    Reed 6*
    Best For:
    Great and unique leader skill
    Best Traits: Walking Malice jewel, good substitute while we're missing Grah 6*
    Worst Traits: weaker BC fill and BC over time fill buff, strict LS requirement

    [​IMG]
    Owen 6*
    Best For:
    Great and unique leader skill
    Best Traits: OP LS for a 6* unit, best RC5 leader
    Worst Traits: 6* stats for 7* meta content may have him struggle a bit



    RS UNITS - Progress: COMPLETE
    Spoiler

    [​IMG]
    Blazing Knight Agni
    Best For: Lodin substitute, fire filler
    Best Traits: good atk stat, good HP stat, looks like a fire type Kamen Rider
    Worst Traits: poor REC, STBB, not the best gradual BB filler

    [​IMG]
    Dragon God Granados aka Cancer Dragon
    Best For: Seria trial lead
    Best Traits: CRIT buff on top damage reduction from fire units, paired with injury and weak
    Worst Traits: pretty meh stats
    Remotely usable outside of Seria EX trial

    [​IMG]
    Lava 7*
    Best For: Raid RC4 worms, Lugina EX trial, Arena, imp parade, GMP, SMP
    Best Traits: DEF ignore buff from SBB and unique SBB modifier buff, decent normal hitcount
    Worst Traits: Slow attack animation
    Lava finds her way back to meta with great buffs from her 7* form. She's the only unit with an SBB modifier on SBB and the ignore defense helps slot her in a lot of farming content.


    [​IMG]
    Phoenix Reborn
    Best For: Mid content questing
    Best Traits: SBB that deals damage while heals
    Worst Traits: Outclassed severely by Tiara, low hitcount of 8 on SBB


    [​IMG]
    Ace Chef Lancia
    Best For: Early to late content depending on other supporting units
    Best Traits: SBB is the heal that keeps on healing
    Worst Traits: Awkward attack buff with her heal, basically is an Oracle by default, has the HP of a fly


    [​IMG]
    Taskmaster Lorand
    Best For: Boss killing
    Best Traits: Very high attack, excellent boss killing SBB effect
    Worst Traits: Single target BB/SBB, outclassed by a lot of infinite refill STSBB units in some regard, struggles as Breaker / Oracle

    [​IMG]
    Drake Angel Aisha
    Best For: Mono fire, Arena, D-SGX replacement
    Best Traits: solid stats, cool dragon riding action
    Worst Traits: so-so hit count, huge BB/SBB gauge that takes too long to fill, low CRIT buff


    [​IMG]
    Goddess Axe Michele
    Best For: crit teams, rainbow teams, FH, metal parade
    Best Traits: 115% attack buff, highest buff in the game, very good attack animation, very useful SBB, potential 7* form
    Worst Traits: low stats for a 6* unit, will struggle as Breaker and Oracle


    [​IMG]
    Rakshasa Lord Vishra aka Epidemic Ebola Knight
    Best For: Mid to Late content questing, mono fire
    Best Traits: Great stats overall upon evolving to 6*, great SBB effect that stacks with Ares LS
    Worst Traits: Weak REC makes him harder to heal and will struggle as Anima, competes with a lot of good fire units, gimmicky LS

    [​IMG]
    Bordebegia (Kagutsuchi) aka Cancer Centaur
    Best For: BB spam team lead, Mono-fire BB spam
    Best Traits: Great utility in LS and SBB, great stat distribution
    Worst Traits: Huge BB gauge, SBB effect does not stack with Douglas / Luther SBB, CRIT rate buff too low to be useful, WTF name

    [​IMG]
    Red Swordsman Farlon
    Best For: Arena, Mono Fire Leader (65% LS)
    Best Traits: Very good stats with equal distribution, Very fast BB fill
    Worst Traits: Sodis obsession gets old fast, pulling off a Chris Brown on Ramna, SBB bad for long battles, generally bad for questing
    With a weak BB and poor SBB, Farlon is nothing but a collectable right now

    [​IMG]
    Fire Samba Ramna
    Best For: Mono fire lead / Lance Dungeon, Lugina EX trial
    Best Traits: Easily one of most mesmerizing attack animation, only DEF-boosting fire unit
    Worst Traits: A bit on the frail side and would struggle as Oracle/ Breaker
    Very limited usage as lead and as sub.

    [​IMG]
    Inferno Princess Dia
    Best For: Rainbow Team lead for questing / fodder farming, BB spam
    Best Traits: Best rainbow team lead for outside the Arena by a wide stretch, very useful LS and SBB
    Worst Traits: Frail defensively and unusable as Breaker / Oracle

    [​IMG]
    Defiant God Luther
    Best For: BB spam, Spark Team
    Best Traits: Demolishes everything, very good stats, 28 hit AOE SBB, LS that stacks with SBB effect that breaks every single thing
    Worst Traits: Hardly any but may be hard to fit with Dia / Michele in a rainbow team

    [​IMG]
    Guardian Darvanshel
    Best For: Damage mitigation, Maxwell Trial, Raid
    Best Traits: Helps in BC regen while mitigating damage, usable REC even at Anima, 6* gains AOE SBB dmg
    Worst Traits: Low def buff can't auto with Kanon, slow attack animation
    With all the new mitigators around, I think it's safe to say that Darvanshel is safe to retire

    [​IMG]
    Emperor God Orwen
    Best For: metal parade
    Best Traits: IDEK
    Worst Traits: a lot

    [​IMG]
    Fire Goddess Ulkina
    Best For: Lugina trial
    Best Traits: great BB and SBB support unit, but is now outclassed by a lot of things
    Worst Traits: bad animation

    [​IMG]
    Ember Charm Fiora
    Best For: Grand Jelly EX dungeon, Lin GQ, Lugina trial
    Best Traits: two element buffs, ATK down debuff for harder content
    Worst Traits: frailer stats and kind of slow animation

    [​IMG]
    Phoenix God Arus
    Best For: mock unit trials, GQ, boss killing
    Best Traits: STBB is useful in case in dire need of fill for mitigation, great boss-killing STSBB
    Worst Traits: outclassed now by Ogul and Taser

    [​IMG]
    Pyre Aegis Vanberk
    Best For: CRIT team lead, metal parade
    Best Traits: good Kurt substitute
    Worst Traits: low CRIT buff, ignore def is generally not that useful, outclassed severely by Owen

    [​IMG]
    Brimstone Emperor Alpha
    Best For: RC4 worms, Lugina trial
    Best Traits: great damage output on both BB and SBB
    Worst Traits: does not buff teammate on SBB makes him less desirable, STBB

    [​IMG]

    Magma Twin-Pike Claire
    Best For: RC4, RC5, RC4 worms
    Best Traits: great ES, great twin buff of spark and BC drop, great stats that can easily pull off Breaker
    Worst Traits: horribad LS, really weak attack as Guardian type

    [​IMG]
    Inferno Wings Magnazorda
    Best For: Seria trial lead, Karl EX lead
    Best Traits: unique DoT, injury and weak buff attack on SBB, great stats, huge HP pool due to imp cap, 8 BC instant fill
    Worst Traits: very niche for Karl EX trial

    Bestie
    Best For: Karl EX lead, Arc trial lead, tough RC5 missions, FH Gate
    Best Traits: Pretty good on all areas, LS is best for survivability and BB management even on single targets with high BC resistance
    Worst Traits: You'll have to choose between her instant fill (6 which is pretty low) or fill when damaged buffs. Doesn't synergize well with Medina either.

    WATER

    Notable Units: Selena, Karl, Kurt, Elimo, Taser, Rigness

    FREE UNITS - COMPLETE
    Spoiler

    [​IMG]
    Ice Legend Selena
    Best For:
    Mono water lead, arena sub, mock unit trials, GQ
    Best Traits: one of the best UBBs around, best ES boost survivability, very high DC on normal attack
    Worst Traits: pretty much requires Anima since she's farmable, requires Lexida

    [​IMG]
    Tidal Dragoon Zephu
    Best For: Early content
    Best Traits: Free and very easy to acquire, looks quite cool
    Worst Traits: Generally unusable, very weak REC, HP, and DEF

    [​IMG]
    Mother Snow Stya
    Best For: Metal Parade, Early content
    Best Traits: Great hitcount
    Worst Traits: Generally weak stats, needs Anima / Guardian typing, Single target BB
    Stya seems to have missed the notice that Mega has called off their wedding. Enraged, Stya dishes out a 12-hit single target BB on her... wedding cake. Stya makes for a great filler unit though because of her 12-hit BB. Just don't expect her to last long as she is extremely squishy and the STBB is hardly game-changing.

    [​IMG]
    Something Something Karl's 6*
    Best For: FH lead, Questing, Raid, Arena lead
    Best Traits: Beast LS for Arena and FH
    Worst Traits: only available as Lord, High cost
    Karl is the first trial unit that you can fight and acquire in Randall. Being of water type, Karl is rather easy to acquire. With Grand Quest, Karl gets a nerfed Deemo LS, coupled with must be the most broken arena LS of 7 BC fill everytime you attack. This instantly makes him a de facto FH lead and shoo-in arena lead. The broken LS however comes with a price as his 24-hit SBB only has self-buff of 100% to ATK, DEF, and REC and doesn't really do much for the team. Still, a pretty good unit overall worth considering in your team.

    [​IMG]
    Gun Goddess Serin
    Best For: Arena, Frontier Hunter
    Best Traits: QUACK QUACK BOOM, Great character design, Queen of the Arena, Amazing hitcount, balanced stats
    Worst Traits: No 6* in sight for the foreseeable future, outdated by newer units
    By far the best free non-trial unit ever to walk the game, Serin features amazing hitcount in tandem with balanced stats. It will be very hard to find any other free unit that has had this much impact on the arena or in the game in general. Her normal hitcount of 13 and 16 hitcount BB paired with a Felneus or any Ares Authority lead means she's a BB terror in the arena. If paired with Fennia or Cayena, Serin can spread paralysis and break arena games. Her BB also features a defensive pivot of inflicting weak. Serin also goes perfect for Frontier Hunter. Her 16 hit AOE BB means enough BC is generated to ensure unlimited BB throughout the run. Unfortunately for Serin, new arena-efficient units are coming out, ending her reign. And as Frontier Hunter gets harder, Serin's stats doesn't seem to fit the meta anymore, seeing as how 6* Douglas can do what she does, better. We will have good memories of Serin and I know we will be keeping copies of her, waiting for gumi to be bold and release 6* maidens, upon which we see all P2W players cry in despair.

    [​IMG]
    Eliza 6*
    Best For: Water filler unit, trophy unit
    Best Traits: Great character design, LS for water+dark team

    Paris a free unit from Frontier Hunter as a reward for hitting HR 16. Because of Paris, Logan was able to "solo" the Miracle Totem. It's her LS where she turns your DEF to 9999 and making you receive 1 damage on chance.

    Tesla Club Elulu
    Best For: Early to Mid Content, Thunder Vortex Arena
    Best Traits: high rec, boasts one of the highest thunder attack stats despite being an older unit, injury is useful if it can be inflicted, official ban hammer mascot
    Worst Traits: very glassy, low hit count, extremely type sensitive
    A unit that seems vaguely based off of Jill from Drill Dozer, Elulu is the little girl genius who wields an anti-gravity enhanced hammer. As her character art would suggest, she hits hard, but can't seem to take a hit. Being type-sensitive, only Anima and Guardian are viable types to keep her from being KO'd easily, and even at Anima, her DEF is ridiculously low at 1.2K. Her low hit count doesn't help much with BC generation, but her Leader Skill and SBB are designed to help compensate, though Lodin outclasses her in this regard.
    [​IMG]
    Heaven's Bow Loch
    Best For:
    General Questing, Thunder Arena
    Best Traits: Good stats all around
    Worst Traits: BB gauge fill rate is rather huge, 1-hit AOE massive SBB has very small room for sparking
    Loch arrived strong to Global and is actually the better unit between him and Amy due to the fact that his BB is AOE, eventhough Amy wins the stats race by a narrow margin. Fast-forward to today, Loch is a collector's item left to collect dust. Again, this time, the problem is his SBB not having good utility, paired with a high SBB fill rate requirement. The 1-hit massive damage AOE may sound alluring, but you lose on BC generation (only 10 BC max generated) and sparking potential when you only hit the enemy one time. It's gonna be a gamble to spark with because it's basically all or nothing. We also see better units now in Elsel, Uda, and Esna. Even Amy leaves him in the dust as Amy can easily do STBB on single bosses or AOE on mobs with her SBB. Arguably, Loch can one-ups Emilia in the Thunder arena lead department, though between him and Rina, the choice can be less straightforward.

    [​IMG]
    Heaven's Bolt Amy
    Best For:
    General questing, mid to late content, Karl-killing
    Best Traits: Surprisingly tanky while sporting good attack and HP,
    Worst Traits: Single target BB, not enough utility outside injury and weakness
    I think everyone who has faced Karl would have used Amy or wish they had. While she's not essential to taking down Karl, her combined heft and heavily damaging BB helps her stay long in the fight against Karl and deal geeat damage against him. And eventhough we can say that her glory days have long bowed out, her undeniable heft means you can still carry her around for harder missions. It might just be harder to justify her in a rainbow team, because injury and weak are less reliable debuffs, especially since enemies have resistance / immune to it. For mono thunder, Amy is still a very solid choice, though.
    [​IMG]
    Empyreal Drake Lodin
    Best For:
    Arena lead, Frontier Hunter lead
    Best Traits: small BB gauge, ideal BB for Arena usage, very useful FH SBB effect, Pseudo-Felneus
    Worst Traits: Incredibly squishy, very typing sensitive--struggles as Oracle / Breaker
    Lodin is the Thunder type Alice: less than 6K HP even at Anima, high ATK and REC, and low DEF. In normal scenarios, Lodin will struggle without Anima or Guardian type. But he has his uses. In the arena, Lodin is a great rainbow lead, especially with teams that don't have the necessary hit counts to generate BCs and trigger BBs. Lira, Ophelia, Farlon, plus Serin or Sefia will appreciate the Lodin lead and prove deadly in the Arena. Like Dia, Lodin is a "mini Felneus" and in some situations would prove to be a better lead than Felneus. His SBB is extremely useful in Frontier Hunter as it refills BB gauges for three turns, allowing for lower hitcount units to refill their BB gauge effectively. Just be careful using Lodin. With the absence of stat imps, there is no way to fix Breakers / Oracle Lodins, and while Breaker can be used in the Arena and general questing to good results, Oracle is just completely iffy and needs a lot of justification. Lord Lodin may sometimes find Terminus difficult to survive, especially if focused on by earth types like Edea. Perhaps the best thing about Lodin is this: he lets you bring Michele / Luther (Ruza) for a rainbow team unlike his kin Dia, and with enough support, Lodin is an amazing unit with a highly appreciable utility.

    [​IMG]
    Sky Mage Rashil
    Best For:
    Karl trial; General questing; hybrid crit teams
    Best Traits: SBB gives angel buff idol to Rashil; unique heal + crit rate buff; "I'm on a horse"; great stats for a healer
    Worst Traits: crit rate buff somewhat low (+35%) that can overwrite higher CRIT buff, selfish angel idol effect only applies to self; low HP
    Rashil is a strange combination of different buffs. He is a healer, but he has a crit rate buff, which is made for damage dealing crit teams. His self Angel Idol buff is unique to him, and this opens up possibilities. With Rashil's ability to survive otherwise lethal attacks, one can utilize spheres that focus purely on building BB gauge instead of survivability. Spheres like Evil Shard or King's Crown become useful to him. Rashil is one of the units that has no definite place in any meta or squad, except for beating Karl, in which he is THE healer to use. The 35% buff may also mess with higher CRIT rate buffers and Rashil is therefore not recommended for those running a CRIT team / SGX
    [​IMG]
    Griel
    Best For: General Questing, FH
    Best Traits: Strong balanced stats, very useful SBB effect
    Worst Traits: Very slow BB/SBB fill, meh animation
    Ronel was widely hyped when she was launched due to how stellar her stats are, and remain to this day. But her biggest drawback is her huge BB/SBB gauge that takes 34 and 64 BCs. This means, you've fired Melchio's SBB twice before you can even fire hers. She tries to justify this with her SBB effect, which is equal to that of a demon flute, but we have to note that her SBB effect is weaker than those of Fel/Uda and Luly/Phee by a tiny bit, and those charge for 20 BCs less, which makes them more dependable in direr situations. At the time of writing, before Uda's 6* release, Ronel has the best stats among any thunder units available in Global. And she has a month at the very least to enjoy this distinction.
    [​IMG]
    Gold Queen Rina
    Best For:
    Mono thunder lead / grunt, general questing
    Best Traits: Only thunder unit with curse
    Worst Traits: Curse and paralysis on SBB is situational, 52 BC SBB cost
    Well, Kikuri and Sefia's SBB merged into one and given to Rina. We all know how that worked for those two. Her LS provides 65% ATK to thunder units. Pairing her with Uda will make for a hard hitting, BB-spamming mono thunder team. Also to note is her SBB's BC cost of 52, which is not exactly gonna work for her favor, too.

    [​IMG]
    Mech God Grybe
    Best For:
    Selena dungeon lead, mono thunder
    Best Traits: Very hard-hitting, one of the highest atk in the game
    Worst Traits: Typing sensitive and glassy, debuff on SBB is situational and buff is useless outside of mono thunder
    Well, Luly and Grybe made it on time for their vortex dungeons. If you ever are going to run Grybe and mono thunder, just be aware that Grybe can be glassy. He does have one of the highest attack stats in the game, but he will definitely struggle with Oracle / Breaker typing. His buff is great for mono thunder teams, but outside, it may struggle to find actual use, especially if he's in a rainbow team.


    [​IMG]
    Blaze Guru Bran
    Best For: Rainbow spark squad / bb spam lead, def buffer
    Best Traits: solid stats, second highest def buff in the game after Zelban
    Worst Traits: weak HP, can be type sensitive, so-so LS
    Bran is a curious mixed bag. He has solid stats, save for his HP, which, paired with high REC would mean you'd want an Anima one. His LS leans to the offensive, but his SBB adds a great DEF buff of 110%. While we want to revel on his LS, the 30% spark buff attached to it isn't game changing, but perhaps can be useful given his 50% ATK power addition for a rainbow team, which may actually cause pain in practice. You just want to be wary of Oracle and Breaker typings given his poor HP, a Guardian typing is not too bad either, but the 5.4K HP for a 6* unit leaves a lot to be desired.

    [​IMG]
    Crusher God Uda
    Best For: Mono thunder Arena lead/grunt, BB Spam, FH lead
    Best Traits: Very quick BB fill at 15 BB, very decent stats that can work with any typing
    Worst Traits: Outclassed by Zelnite as BB spam lead, Can't fit with Lodin Arena lead, weak BB
    Felneus can safely retire now that Uda has arrived to Global. The Crusher God does everything that Felneus can do, plus best him in the Arena. Virtually, there is nothing to deter Uda from usurping the water serpent's throne, except for his less powerful BB, which is actually a boon inside the arena at 15 BC fill. While people are delighted by Uda's BB fill rate, one must be reminded that he conflicts with Lodin and nullifies the 50% ATK bonus inside the arena. So if one is to use Uda in the Arena, it's most likely with a Mono-Uda team. Outside the arena, where you will almost always use him, this BB is pointless, and you need to wait for his SBB to fill at 43 BC, 3 BCs less than Felneus. He's not a trivial update to Felneus, but his typing means he wants to avoid Earth dungeons, where Felneus can safely step in. But with Uda's stellar stats, even a Breaker can safely work on an Earth boss / dungeon with the right support. Just be wary as Zelnite will soon make him feel outdated, but before that happens, he has a whole month to shine.

    Beast God Exvehl
    Best For: Trials, FH, Raid

    Light Legend Atro
    Best For: Mono-light leader, arena sub
    Best Traits: Best starter unit by far, great balanced stats, beautiful character design, usable even in future content

    Courageous Heart Alma
    Best For: Arena (lower ranks), early content
    Best Traits: very fast BB fill rate with unresisted element
    Worst Traits: frail and generally poor stats
    Alma has the fastest attack BB fill rate, and as such, you imagine it to do terribly low damage with a multiplier at 110% at BB10. Her other stats aren't stellar either and would certainly need Anima typing to be usable at Amdahl content onward. In the arena, she is a great boon at lower ranks provided you don't have Lira / Farlon / Ophelia or her upcoming Daddy Olga.
    [​IMG]
    Goddess Tilith
    Best For: Best Fujin potion consumer
    Best Traits: highest healin the game, great stats for a healer
    Worst Traits: Meh leader skill, Kajah levels BB fill rate, only available as Lord
    If there is any unit that would be the best recipient of Fujin potion, it's Tilith. Her BB skill gives her allies 40 BC off the bat. Prior to 6* and the proliferation of BB, 40 BC is enough and the horribly huge 75 BB fill rate is justifiable. But nowadays, 40 BC is not enough to justify usage. This also means that in cases where you need Tilith to heal the team, she wouldn't be able to because of her huge BB gauge requirement. Her heal however is the highest in the game and her stats are among the best in the healers class. Plus, it's Tilith.

    [​IMG]
    Sky Angel Vanila
    Best For: status spread support
    Best Traits: good stats for a 5*
    Worst Traits: Random BB with weak status proc rate, great unit design
    Going by the lore, Vanila seems to be the de facto leader of the Battle Maidens, but judging by usage, she is by far the least useful. Random BB does not CRIT and her status proc rate is at 19%, which is very low and unreliable. If anything, her stats redeem her as they're quite OK for a 5* unit and like most maidens, she isn't really that type sensitive. She also has great design and lush pink flowing hair that girls everywhere envy.

    Best For: FH, Raid, Arena
    Best Traits: broken LS that can OHKO a lot of content in Global, 33 hit SBB, low BB fill rate, amazing balanced stats.
    Worst Traits: slow animation, low CRIT rate buff that doesn't play well with SGX, 50BCfill on SBB is a bit too slow
    One of the most overpowered of its time, Alim takes two broken LS and puts them into one unit, even without it, Maxwell is still extremely powerful with her 33 hit unresisted SBB with a 660% dmg multiplier. Her 20 BC fill BB means she's a shoe-in in the arena. Her LS, which is a combination of Zebra and Mare's to one-shot thru a lot of content and makes her extremely valuable especially for CRIT teams. To note however is her derpy animation, which makes her 33 hit SBB stretch out for a long time, probably on-par with Zellha's. Also that SBB is at 50 BC fill. Not that bad, but will be a challenge to fill without an Ares lead or fellow 30-hitters.

    Rejoice! Deemo and Little Girl is coming to Global.What is so OP about Deemo? Basically, their stats are meh, but what they lack for power they make up for utility. Deemo's LS refills your units' BB gauges every time they spark. If you are running a spark squad of units with more than 20 hitcounts each, you can fill up your BB gauge even before you receive your BC. Deemo however would have a problem feeling up your BB gauge if there's only one enemy, but in the case of two enemies, it's never too hard.

    DARK

    Top Units: Magress, Kikuri, Feeva, Ivris, Aaron, Afla Dilith, Alice

    FREE UNITS - 4/8

    Ryujin Mifune
    Best For: imp parade, arena
    Best Traits: beastly attack for a free unit, cool character design
    Worst Traits: dies when hit with a stick

    [​IMG]
    Grahdens
    Best For: Pretty HP numbers, Defensive lead especially against Maxwell, Questing lead (especially light / dark dungeons), Atro / Magress dungeon lead
    Best Traits: LS is top-tier for defense and the 15% damage reduction from dark / light units is a great boon, very low cost for his stats, competes with current 6* units in terms of stats, light and dark element buff, very well rounded stats, very well rounded LS, too
    Worst Traits: outclassed by Tesla in overall defensive use, will hardly fit any squad if not used as lead, low HP when not used as lead is discouraging, better offensive lead options

    Mad God Zebra
    Best For: CRIT team lead
    Best Traits: Huge boost in CRIT damage
    Worst Traits: Extremely fragile, low base HP and DEF, Outclassed by Maxwell, no 6* in sight
    Free unit? Some would need more than 50+ runs to see a Zebra drop. This equates to 900 energy give or take. But the reward? Well, Zebra as a leader is extremely potent, especially if paired with Michele and SGX. This three along with Logan can OHKO a lot of bosses in the game, which compensates for Zebra's lack of any defensive capability. Failure to OHKO the boss though may spell doom for your CRIT team, so a Breaker Zebra might be essential and a maxed SBB SGX and Michele, too, to ensure max Damage. Until Maxwell drops in Global, Zebra will be the premium CRIT team lead and it would be pointless to make one without him.

    Blazing Mare
    Best For: CRIT Team Second lead
    Best Traits: Pairs well with Zebra for serious damage, sturdier than Zebra

    It's nice to see a new all-units guide, and hopefully this one will be more frequently updated than previous ones.
    I can foresee this guide being different from the rest due to it making use of actual game data, whereas the older ones were made before the raw data was made public.
    And maybe, just maybe, people will start to trim the fat off of their lists when asking for squad advice. Help us help you by not simply listing every single goddamn unit. The longer the list, the less likely there's someone willing to help.

    Thanks for the encouragement! I'm still a little ways far off from completing the other elements, but I hope to be done with all of them soon.

    Yeah. But both don't have their 5* yet in Global. I'm very reserved at the moment to put them in the list. But they'll be there when they hit.
