    I'm just wondering, I've heard so much of him but whenever I try to search for his abilities, stats, or anything, I end up with debates like: "Is Lightning better than Orlandu?" etc.

    Maybe I'm bad at searching but can someone explain why he is "super op" or very strong?

    And if you have his abilities and stats (translated to English is preferred) could you post them here so I can have a better understanding?

    Thanks

    Because elemental chains... for him to be that much better than lightning or luneth, you need 2 orlandus with holy element weapons so you can chain the two together and stupid dumb things happen.

    That's mainly because his strongest attack is a 7 hit attack with a very high multiplier and a holy resist debuff, so if you chain 2 of those it will deal really crazy damage

    In a vacuum, alone and with no tmr gear, he's actually weaker than lightning or luneth

    He get a ability could make great chaining dmg if you have excalibur and dw (multi hit and -50% light resist). However having 2 orlandu with 2 dw + 4 exca is not easy unless you are a whale and you do macro. Hope gumi will give us some light element dagger or sword so we could do the chain dmg easier.

    I think the optimal damage setup would be Excalibur and Sakurafabuki, so you can mix in Blade Mastery.

    Sorry i haven't notice it , so 2 exca is enough. Btw i'm f2p and get only one tmr (dw) so too much tmr like that will become too luxury.

    Where is that a misconception?
    Orlandu without TMs and with durandal still hits lighter than luneth against single target as the calculations on the link you just posted have shown, and on top of that, orlandu doesn't have AoE attacks, so he also clearly lose on AoE, he's also not sturdier and has no status immunities like luneth.

    Again, he's weaker while alone (ie without a great partner to chain) and if both him and luneth have no tmr gear... he IS weaker in this situation, and this is all I've said :)

    Basically, the event has +74 ark great sword that does light dmg.....all that math is with out TMs and with the above mentioned sword.

    That math is without DW as well. Yeah luneth has him by 66.%....but he kills lightning and comes close to matching luneth with no TMs and no chaining.

    Nice , i do not have time for tm farm and i sure i cannot do it manual coz i don't have pc and use android phone.
    So clearly , it will become imbalance if a unit don't have dw could deal more dmg than a unit have initial dw ::sarcasm::

    On single target, yes.

    Sure orlandu is the better unit overall, but to be better than luneth, you need at least one tmr or a good chaining partner... that's all.

    Without any tmr for both characters, he hits as hard as luneth against single target non holy resistant monsters and is weaker in the other situations

    Weaker than 660% mod of Luneth but much stronger than 490% of Lightning.
    Orlandu Holy Explosion is 600% mod fyi.
    Both considered DW Lightning/Luneth and no DW Orlandu.

    He does have status immunity and breaks and mp/hp drain and confuse/para attack.
    He only lack AOE, which you don't need in real boss fights.
