    Ability Awakening Update!

    RainbowCrystal FiveStarFiveStarFiveStarFiveStarFiveStar - Gilgamesh
    Wiki: https://exvius.gamepedia.com/Gilgamesh
    Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/wiki/units/363

    >Weapon Collector
    Awaken +1: Boosts ATK when equipped with a short sword or spear
    Awaken +2: Boosts ATK increase (high)

    >Tri-Attack
    Awaken +1: Increase hit count (low)
    Awaken +2: Increase hit count (high)

    >Snowpetal
    Awaken +1: Reduces MP consumed (mid)
    Awaken +2: Boosts damage amount (low), Boosts DEF ignored (mid)

    Parade's Note: Gilgamesh needed a GL boost to these and it's looking like he didn't get one (pending datamine). He can have 120% base ATK passives which is great, but Tri-Attack is still pretty sub-par at an effective 300% mod even with 12-hits. Snowpetal is a decent AoE finisher with an effective ~571% mod, though. Hopefully the cost is cut down from 4 Power Purecysts, though, otherwise it's not worth it.

    RainbowCrystal FiveStarFiveStarFiveStarFiveStarFiveStar - Queen
    Wiki: https://exvius.gamepedia.com/Queen
    Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/wiki/units/372

    Italics mean GL-exclusive!

    >Berserk
    Awaken +1: Boosts DEF and SPR when active, Increases necessary HP (low)
    Awaken +2: Boosts ATK increase (great), Increases necessary HP (low), Activations become unlimited

    Parade's Note: Not sure what "activations become unlimited" means, perhaps the buffs are no longer 3-turns, but infinite (as long as she isn't dispelled/killed)? If so, that is a GL buff. BTW, in JP, Berserk becomes "ATK+300%/DEF+200%/SPR+200% for 3 turns when HP is reduced to 6% or less" so yeah, big bonuses.

    >Devastate
    Awaken +1: Boosts damage amount (mid)
    Awaken +2: Boosts damage amount (high), Targets any one enemy, Damages an enemy once

    Parade's Note: It looks like Devastate is getting a huge damage boost AND IS BECOMING A ONE-HIT ATTACK. This turns it from a shit Barrage-style into a formidable finishing move... potentially. We'll have to see what the modifier is. But with base 144+34 ATK and Berserk giving +300% ATK, we're looking at a potentially insane finisher.

    >Magic Martyr
    Awaken +1: Increases HP consumed (great), Boosts recovery amount (great)
    Awaken +2: Increases HP consumed (great), Boosts turns in effect (mid)

    Parade's Note: Magic Martyr looks unchanged and that's great. It sacrifices 95% of her HP to give AoE 35 + 1xmod MP recovery for 5 turns. Her base SPR is 121+26... since Berserk increases it by +200%, we're looking at a MINIMUM of 441 SPR, meaning a minimum MP Regen of 255 split over 5 turns, or about 50 MP recovered per turn. More than enough to sustain a team of chainers. Note that GL Queen has the Flinchproof Martyr Auto-Revive ability, so if you set that up the turn before, you are OK to use Magic Martyr to "kill yourself", and you can just heal up right after.

    >Justice Guard
    Awaken +1: Nullifies confusion
    Awaken +2: Nullifies poison, Escapes death once when HP is above a certain point


    Parade's Note: The entire ability is GL-exclusive. Nice immunities (poison is actually very bad for a unit like her), including a Retry-type ability with unknown parameters.

    Overall, GL Queen is looking EXTREMELY COOL. I need to see Devastate's modifier and Justice Guard's "Escape death" parameters, but I am hopeful!

    GoldCrystal FourStarFourStarFourStarFourStar - Agrias
    Wiki: https://exvius.gamepedia.com/Agrias
    Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/wiki/units/263

    >Full Break
    Awaken +1: Reduces all elemental resistances
    Awaken +2: Boosts turns in effect (mid)

    >Knighthood
    Awaken +1: Boosts ATK when equipped with a large sword
    Awaken +2: Boosts ATK increase (high)

    >Divine Ruination
    Awaken +1: Boosts damage amount (mid)
    Awaken +2: Increase MP consumed (mid), Increase hit count (low)

    Parade's Note: With Knighthood and Divine Ruination +2, Agrias has the same chaining skill and the same passive ATK boosts and non-Enhanced Orlandeau. She has less base ATK, but is otherwise almost nearly identical. They can now perfect chain with each other, or with Veritas of the Dark.

    Queen looks good. I dunno if she will actually be, but she might become our best finisher yet. And with her Berserk becoming infinite stat boost.... She might be totally crazy. I wanna see it. She might be an absolute monster. Quick maintenance, quick, gimme the answers !!

    Not best finisher, more than likely... poor equipment selection (Dagger, Sword, and Greatsword but NO Heavy Armor) and low base ATK will limit that. But "high-tier finisher with MP battery and Curaja" still sounds very good.

    Luka gets a lot from her enhancements... but not enough to be as good as Aria.
    Cherlotte gets nothing from her enhancements
    Terra gets a bunch of interesting bonuses all over the place, but is still bound by her fundemental flaws as a unit
    Clowny gets some nice buffs, but never stood a chance of being anything other than a walking TMR

    ...

    Emperor enhancements when?

    Those will limit, indeed. But something like "as long as you are alive, you get a 200% defensive buff and 300% atk, you can rape some monsters instead of getting raped" (jrpg means jp weird tentacle stuff, not my fault) should do some amazing work.

    Kefka's enhancements are more than disappointing.

    Are we really talking about that guy who simply destroyed most of the world in FF6 and ended up as a kind of godly creature?

    Subpar after 6* awakening, subpar enhanced. Gumi's decision is also subpar...

    Time to enhance Agrias x2. I'm glad I will finally have useful chainers.

    People in reddit already did a build over 1500ATK with Bersek. Devastate, will probably have an 8x (7x in JP, but JP had a 4,5x originally while we had 5,5x originally).
    1500ATK with 8x mod, the only one that might (we need some calculations here) do more dmg as finisher is FV.

    ps: About the equipment. Use Grappling Weapons can make her use fists. We all know the path this opens...

    I will comment further on this and more generally on the matter of Queen as a finisher after datamine. But let me just say this: JP Devastate was brought from 90% per hit to 140% per hit, for a total modifier of 7x. If we get the same +50% upgrade "per hit" in GL, we are looking at a total modifier of 8x (1.6x times 5) on a single hit, 16x with DW. She can reach 966 ATK pre-buff with this build

    • Left Hand: Aigaion Arm +145ATK+100%LBFillRate

    • Total Stats: HP: 5610 MP: 248 ATK: 966 DEF: 389 MAG: 236 SPR: 223
    and even more if you give her EV's TMR instead of Wisdom. With the 300% ATK buff she can reach 966 + 178 x 3 = 1500 ATK. Holy Moly.


    As a pure support, she is a fantastic candidate for Rikku's Pouch and Pod 153 because of how insanely bulky she can become with the 200% DEF/SPR buff.

    I am very tired of being constantly reminded how I don't have Dandelga. *sigh*

    Please Monster Hunter Banner... please... even Queen needs you now... :(

    I do have Vargas, but nor Dandelga nor Queen nor the time to ever farm Dandelga at this rhythm. This is quite the absolute opposite problematic.

    Great units in this is latest batch. I've been looking forward to Luka's enhancements. This potentially new stuff with Queen is wild... can't wait to see what the data mine/confirmation turns up.

    I have a couple Aileens and OK so I don't think I'll be enhancing my Agrias's after all. Will wait on Queen's datamine.

    Wait... I've let Queen gather dust ever since I drew her. I might finally have a use for her?
