        You have a cheaper option with the 5k lapis bundle.
        Too bad the new FFBE/GL NV select ticket bundle is a cash one, if it's a lapis bundle that would be helpful for people who lacks GL unit for CoW.

        Probably worth it for new players or if you still don't have many NV units. But for hoping to get a good unit or unit that you want, not recommended.

        nothign about her is really worth anything let alone 18k lapis (which is sad for an nv)

      What is the damage comparison of the next “premium” NV vs Angela?
      1. liddokun
        liddokun
        Angela should win due to her GL buff. Maybe by quite a margin too, especially to Yuna.

        The thing with the premium unit is, it's not all about damage. Their STMR or VC is really good and future proof.

        You may want to check Sinzar recent video about upcoming units for some insights.

        Great advice. As far as magic damage, looks like Angela (especially imbuable) is pretty solid for a long while. Unless they do something crazy with Christmas/Black Friday units, seems like a pretty good choice.

        Every premium units dps damage wise are VERY close. The next spike will be Knight of Gran just released on JP. But you should take in consideration if you consider a unit for CoW or DV: their damage scales differently.

        I skipped it yesterday. The 5k I got from the weekly Chamber of Challenges. Probably will skip today's 5k. As long as I got the lapis I don't mind losing 1-2 coin(s).

      Buzz on Reddit for Karten is saying on par with or just below Lara. Waiting to hear from Sinzar or others. If so, disappointed. ..

        Yeah, I think he's going to be a Lara clone, unfortunately, but he does come with two elemental imbues with nice amps as opposed to Lara who really only likes to play with fire. So +1 for elemental flexibility! His VC is also really good with those killers! But definitely not the broken unit we were hoping for.

        Lara > Skye > Ibara > Sephiroth. Since seph is a finisher he isn't even part of my team.
        Elena is a very bad choice for this fight as her killer buffs doesn't match and her damage is low.

        You could reflect either a Blindna or Esuna spell onto the enemy to cure Blind for 'em. Cast reflect on one of your units, then cast either Blindna or Esuna(Esunaga should work too) on the unit that has reflect and that will work.

        I'll repeat what I've said in other places here: You can neuter the first MP drain if you have Aphmau, Rufus or Reno in your party. They do a pre-emptive break so the first drain's not so damning.
