    Not sure if you have any other way to cast tornado using your own units. If you do, definite STMR. But even if you don’t, more and more units are gaining tornado/tornado chaining abilities now, like Rem and Malphasie, so you have a better chance of having friend units that fit that need. :)

    I have 38 7* right now, I could probably go up to 50 if Gil wasn't an issue. In my case sometimes I upgrade a unit just to get the stmr like Gilgamesh or queen even though I don't plan on using them and they sit at lv101 unenhanced. I also upgrade some units for arena shenanigans even if they are not useful for almost anything else. I have 11 elfreedas waiting for their 7* awakening just for that.

    Its been said, but I feel its important to reiterate this fact. If you have 4 or more Barbie, you should absolutely grab her STMR as it literally does nothing but help her damage and survivability.

    First of all, having another MAG +50 accessory is amazing, especially not on a limited unit like Christine and WKN (glad I have had those TMRs, but I like options). This accessory gives anyone who uses it HP/MP 20% and boosts damage of many common magic Wind moves used by Barbie herself.

    You can literally give this to any Tornado user and boost their damage further. As far as sacrificing 2 Barbie for the STMR, you'll have so many Tornado chaining families, which now also includes Rem and Malphasie, that aside from abusing Aeroja or the new move she got, there is no need for 2. And if you really want 2 7* Barbie, bring a friend unit. Hell, I'll lend you a hand if necessary as I have her 7* + STMR.

    TL;DR - Her STMR is a very solid, magic accessory with extra bulk and added damage to Barbie's own moves. I didn't even blink before I grabbed it.

    Side Note: There is no mention of whether or not Winds of Chaos stacks if you were lucky enough to have 2. I do not, and therefore cannot test. If this stacked, just.. wow.

    Wow i was just decided to get her STMR and is half way during the process then i saw ur MSG pop up.

    Just like u said there are a lot other chaining option i can get and i have dark fina 7* up and ready, therefore getting her STMR probably a better option. So i am getting the STMR.

    I am sorry for all the troubles and is really appriciate for your time and effort for writing the advice. Thank you very much!::toad::

    No trouble at all, I am always happy to be able to help others and give feedback. This 7* batch was dropped on us with no prior warning. Inside this batch, we got 2 GLEX units who were previously a mystery (7*), so your question is absolutely valid. I hope this helps others as well.

    I was never a huge Barbie fan, although I did not dislike her, but I am very happy with her 7* form and design. And to think, she still gets enhancements... that's pretty nice as she is perfectly fine the way she is and many are even still using her 6* to date. I think Barbie has a bright future. She does now what she did then, but so much better. I'm not worrying about comparing her to units like Ultima or Elly, I'm simply looking at her right now as is, and I am finally happy to have 4 of her sitting around.

    Aside from DPS, barbie has a lot of kit that makes her stand out from other unit:
    Cyclone Shield - MAG/SPR (100%) for 3 turns, Negate 4 physical damage, provide so much survivability
    Storm Ward - 70% lightning and wind resistance
    Refreshing Winds - HP and MP restore
    She was already so good with these skill, now she is even better with self auto revive and reflect.
    In the coming ability awakening, she can also provide damage mitigation, become a set up finisher with her sunder 20x
    all these, just wow!
    I am happy to have her with me::rudecat17::
