    Black belt gi is just one of the best non tm armor for attack boosting for 99% of content. (The 1% it's not good for is where bosses take a few hits and can really dish out damage)

    It's pretty common for me to say things (correctly) but forget to toss in contextual details that may be helpful...

    Has any one pulled Elza post banner? I heard of some one doing this but am not sure if there is any truth to it.

    Also off hand where do you find the Black Belt Gi recipe?

    Problem is I am also french... I learnt english when I met my wife so, my english is common or not always good (grammaticaly) and sometime I misunderstood thing. So it is not your fault, do not worry.

    For exemple I don't understand well that post:

    What do you mean by "Post banner"? You mean she can besummon now? Maybe it is true, because I had still summon Snow after the event, but the chance of get it is really small.

    The recipe is in the Castatrophi-Kol.

    I doubt it... probably just rerolled alt accounts people are just started playing. She was listed Liminted Time Only... She was the only unit I actually broke open the wallet for... and sadly I only got 1.... Tons of Karls, though ::up::

    I've personally rolled 1k+ rolls on reroll accounts since her banner ended and I have not hit her or the other BF banner units.

    Hum, so that means some units are really limited or collector? Damn! I miss all the best units except Elza...

    I got Snow after the event time, so that mean Snow wasn't limited unit? Right?

    Elza is a global exclusive unit. By definition was only available during her own banner exclusive. Same as the Halloween units and the recently passed Christmas units like white knight Noel.

    If you haven't pulled Elsa during her banner
    You can't get her now until that banner comes back (if ever). Don't be sorry for yourself, she's alright but not that great unless you TMR a lot or have 2 Elsa for 2 x demon scythe. There are better 5* base out there.

    There's evidence of another data mined Bf collab unit Lico... So maybe another BF collab near future with another global exclusive

    I wish I had started playing earlier, just to have a chance to grab her. I love playing her from friend pool, she is great for explorations, she has her LB maxed every fight!

    Having used Elza extensively, she's probably the most self contained attacker out there with her skill set, HOWEVER with a very severe limitation on her weapon selection. As a result if you didn't get her I wouldn't worry about it... Maxwell is very similar and as far as we know Maxwell may return when she gets her 6* upgrade. They have similar limitations and skill sets. One is dark themed the other holy/light

    So if you didn't get Elza but want her and also don't have Maxwell, I would start preparing your team to try and acquire Maxwell the next time she comes around

    Overall I rate Elza better than Luneth or Lightning as a single target attacker because she can do the def/spr debuffing on her own (don't think there is anyone else that can do better than the 50% Elza can do), opening up things for your other attacks and mages. Not only that when coming low on MP she can lance mp to herself. However her real weakness is when it comes to AOE and/or multiple enemies, unless you have AOE matera like bladeblitz to put on her, she will pale in comparision to other attackers that have AOEs in their kit.

    Even on a single target, I find my 580 attack Elza doing better than a 700 attack Noctis friend. However compared to a 600 Gilgamesh it's a very close call against a single target. But in cases of multiple enemies, Elza unfortunately loses out massively compared to Noctis, Gilgamesh, Lightning and Luneth.

    Good write up. Her weakness is she's neither a chainer not a chain finisher. With a team composition of chainers she's worse than lunneth who is a chain finisher.

    Elsa is pretty versatile. I happen to have her <3 on both my accounts. @KWFFBE puts up a good review here. Elza has a lot of neat, useful skills/strengths but she falls flat on AoE. Her 50% Def/SPR break is nuts.
