    I felt that this was probably the most exciting news this week, and thus deserved its own post. Gumi was actually pretty generous with the amount of information they provided on these upgrades, and while they may not bring these units back to the top of the meta, they appear as though they will at least be useful again in certain situations!

    Hopefully at least one of these units has trolled you hard enough to get to EX+3, although it looks as though EX+2 will bring plenty of good upgrades. Let's run through the list for each of these units and see what we have to look forward to! I intend to update this once the datamine brings in some hard numbers on the damage modifiers.

    Yoshi's +3 is pretty mcuh w/e. (and i cna get +2 if i want just no reason for it atm)

    we have better units for ice/water amps/killers

    and not sure how much SElena will help her given how weak she was <_<....

    Gabranth buffs are also boring imho...more interested in upcomign Behemy ones ;)

    Definitely excited to see those :)

    I'm hopeful that SElena will fare better here, but I think it really hinges on that sword imperil. All the sword imperils we have thus far are 25%, but Kak just got a 30-35% fist imperil so maybe they're thinking along the same lines with SElena? Especially since it's at EX+3? That might actually make her useful again, especially since we have Tyrfing, and I'd really love to use it on Skye since she innately equips swords and would make building her so much easier than Black Sparky.

    Yoshi definitely looking hot as a buffer/support/side-chainer and that 300% LB buff for 5 turns is friggin sweet. Wish my Yoshi wasn't stuck at Ex+1 with 100 frags left to go :-(

    I added up all the extra modifiers for SElena's chains and if you use 2x Gemini Blade followed by Star Supernova you get 360x + 400x + 630x = 1390x total modifier, which is pretty damn good for a unit that's over a year old now. She'll be a budget option for Treshen now, for sure. Her LB isn't too bad either with a base 190x mod that goes up to 585x with 200% morale. Still weaker than Skye (as it should be) but with her innate 300% LB damage and 250% active buff she really might be better in this particular CoW since Skye can't fully stack her LB this round.

    Plus for VW she is a relatively better chainer... and where are Maeve's fragments tradable for VIP coins?
