    After the Esther + Zeno aftermath we just received another banner mainly focusing on damage dealers, however as most of you anticipated despite global buffs it's not enough and I'm not going to trick you.
    Despite that there might still be some value to gain out of this banner for you. Especially if you pulled them from an EX pull or a random daily.

    Nagi & Yego Banner Review by Memel0rd

    Nagi:
    [​IMG]5*
    [​IMG]6*
    [​IMG]7*

    TMR: Black Fox Shapeshifter Mask (Hat) - 40 ATK/MAG, 10 DEF/SPR
    STMR: Yin-Yang Dual Hand (Materia) - 40% ATK/MAG, 50% TDW/MTDW

    Overview:
    Let's get right to it!

    Nagi has high base stats for a hybrid unit with good HP/DEF/SPR as well as high ATK and good MAG and can get up to high offensive stats through additional passives. Alongside her strong hybrid hat TMR she gets a total of 140% ATK, 120% MAG as well as 100% TDW as well as MTDW! Sadly her bulk lacks quite a lot with only 20% HP/DEF/SPR and 30% phys evasion. Nagi can die very easily.
    She's resistant against confusion, poison and blind, which isn't exactly amazing though comes with innate 100% demon, human and undead killers!

    Nagi is quite straight forward as a unit herself though is also versatile at the same time. She focuses on Dualwield chaining and there are some abilities that won't prove to be very useful, including:
    Water Projection, Ice Splinters, Yin-Yang Bind, Poison Mist and Projection - Dance of Destruction. The latter is a 2800% hybrid finisher whereas the other abilities have horrible modifiers.

    Her Limit Burst is also quite mediocre despite its high innate 3000% base modifier + 50% damage increase as the last two (strongest) hits can't be chained together thus loosing a large amount of their damage output.

    This essentially leaves us with a handful of abilities.

    Brilliance and Dark Spirits are both the strongest options to choose from in an ideal rotation as they have a 1850% hybrid modifier at level 120 as well as DR frames and innate light or dark element. They also have a 100% dark / light imperil which is great if the enemy dispels themselves or has to be dispelled. It also means that she can swap between light and dark chains at any point in the fight.

    If you aim for other chain families Nagi is capable of either chaining with a non-elemental Graviton Cannon chain (1300% hybrid modifier) or a 1750% Aureole Ray dark chain! Graviton Cannon is still rather niche as a whole as there aren't many too consistent contendors and Aureole Ray is also mostly useful for Esther with a single-cast, though it's fun to play around with and always nice to have these options.

    Lastly Nagi still has her CD ability Clad in Power, which is available at Turn 1 with a 5 turn cooldown, buffing her own ATK/MAG by 250% for 5 turns and imperilling the enemy's ice, water, light and dark resistance by 100% for 5 turns! This is pretty damn good though her main Light and Dark chains already cover the imperil.


    How does she fare in the meta?
    Nagi
    in terms of hybrid damage dealing is high up just right behind Felix and Kurasame. The numbers I provided for Kurasame are outdated as they don't feature Nagi's TMR and Fryevia's Robe, thus Kurasame with updated numbers should come ahead / go even, though it takes a long time to calculate hybrid numbers and I apologise that I don't provide updated ones in this case. The difference between Nagi and Zeno / Esther are too major for it to matter.

    Which brings me to the next point: All hybrid damage dealers start to pale in comparison against Zeno and Esther while also working quite similar. Against phys damage immune monsters you'll most likely use mages who will (in that case) deal a lot more damage whereas Zeno / Esther demolishes Nagi in terms of damage output.

    This leaves Nagi in a spot where her frames aren't featured in the currently wanted roster of the top dogs while she can't support Esther well due to the lack of support capabilities in her kit that makes up for it (opposed to e.g. Loren with AR frames).
    Against a lot of content her damage will still be more than enough and she isn't trash tier, though in terms of meta comparisons she can be considered a mediocre unit.

    Her TMR is a budget version of Karlette's STMR though a good one at that. Might prove to be exceptionally good on perhaps a broken GLEX hybrid unit?
    Her STMR saw quite some discussion and frankly I don't think it's great for physical damage dealers. Our current TDW users that didn't hit the cap aren't worth using compared to what we have, Nagi hits both TDW caps immediately, Zeno hits the TDW cap innately and in the future a large majority of the TDW meta chainers hit the TDW cap through their own passives + TMRs.
    If you are going for a MTDW build on your mage however (which are often a lot bulkier than MTDH builds) it can be a great asset.

    Yego:
    [​IMG]5*
    [​IMG]6*
    [​IMG]7*

    TMR: Whip Expert (Materia) - 50% ATK with Whips, 50% TDH, 20% MP
    STMR: Fast Lash (Whip) - 176 ATK, 2h, 1.3x AVG variance

    Overview:
    Yego
    is also pretty straight forward in what she can do. Which is dealing damage.

    Her base stats are quite similar to Nagi except for her MAG stat obviously, though her passives do offer more. Yego has innate 130% ATK and 200% ATK with a whip, though since the selection of whips without her STMR are scarce we are going to use a bow. With her own TMR she hits up to 150% TDH as well as an 80% chance to ignore a fatal attack above 30% HP, which adds a lot to her survivability, though she isn't too bad in these terms through her innate 50% HP/DEF/SPR.
    Yego comes with an innate ribbon, which is amazing and makes her a lot easier to use right off the bat. She also has an innate 100% demon/plant killer to boost her damage even further if applied.

    Yego has many ways of inflicting status ailments, which was always a cool gimmick in main FF titles however in FFBE is one of the least useful aspects as the very large majority of all bosses are completely immune to all status ailments and those who aren't often have a resistance against it. This renders many of her abilities quite bad and I'll add the rest of the other abilities too that don't make the cut:
    Smash, Malboro Tentacle, Bad Breath, Wild Whip, Ground Whip, Toxic Whip and Malboro Support. Toxic Whip is one of her CD abilities with a higher modifier however has awful frames that will break the chain.

    This leaves us once again with a scarce selection of abilities: Brutal Whip, Get Serious and her Limit Burst.

    Get Serious is her CD ability that does a lot for Yego. With an 8 Turn cooldown available at Turn 1 alongside a 250% ATK buff that lasts 6 turns and following break immunity as well as T-Cast unlock for 5 turns... you want to use that every time it's up. You can also combine it with other abilities in the same turn.

    If your T-Cast runs out you can use her LB afterwards. It has a 2600% modifier as a finisher sadly but unlocks T-Cast for the following 3 turns, which still makes it plenty good and worth using.

    Though what's most important: Yego's buff actually mattered. They changed the frames from Brutal Whip to AT frames, which were Piledriver frames prior aka one of the worst chain families with awful frames alongside moving. It has a 700% earth modifier with a 100% earth imperil on top of it.

    How does she fare in the meta?
    Yego
    would have been good during the Akstar meta though things changed up in GL and it matters who works well with who. Yego in terms of damage is inferior to both Zeno and Esther by a lot though Yego is easy to use and set up while offering T-Cast AT frames as well as a strong earth imperil.

    In case you want your Zeno to deal earth damage but lack the supports for it, Yego is a great partner for him who can almost always perfectly chain with while also being capable of reaching high bulk with the right gear as well as her guts passive and innate ribbon. Though earth damage for many trials isn't really ideal nor necessary, which makes it more niche.

    Outside of that Yego is still a decent damage dealer slightly above Nagi who is capable of dealing more than enough damage already. Being able to chain with Zeno immediately raises your usefulness as his damage obliterates almost everythingw e currently have.

    Her TMR in theory is on an STMR level with 50% TDH and 50% ATK... with whips. Sadly no other unit uses whips than herself with her own STMR and in the foreseeable future there won't be a TDH Whip meta chainer, making this TMR very very niche.

    The same goes for her STMR with high ATK and the 2h variance but basically no unit to use it on unfortunately.


    Build + Maths:
    Griffin Bow (103 ATK, 2h, 1.5x avg variance)
    Prishe's Hairpin (45 ATK, 10% HP/MP)
    Fryevia's Suit (30 ATK, 1 DEF/SPR, 10% ATK)
    Marshal Glove x2 (80 ATK, 100% TDH)
    Whip Expert (50% TDH, 20% MP) + 50% ATK, 50% TDH
    Dark Knight's Knowledge (30% ATK, 50% TDH)
    Two For One (50% ATK)
    Past Regrets (60% ATK, -10% SPR)

    Stats with Titan 3*:

    Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed your weekend! :)
    I just hit 700 subs on my YT channel and I want to apologise that I never uploaded a FFBE video. I can't log into my FFBE account through my computer which means I don't have proper ways to record my gameplay footage.

    Thanks for the review. Do you know if Yego's 3-4 DoT moves stack with each other ? I don't know yet what situation it will be useful even if they stack, but it is something sorta unique to her (and Kryla). Just in case there is some weird strategy we can pull off around it.

    That being said, I wish they give Nagi 6x chain mod. I know she will get it later when she gets her enhancement, but getting it now would make her standout better against Zeno/Esther.

    I probably skip this banner. I may throw a few tickets just in case I get them. I kinda like their sprites.

    Thanks for the review~

    Gotta say, I'd be interested in the units if they didn't exist just to boost the numbers of FFBE story summonables / to supply the cheapest, shallowest pathos in the game's sort-of story. The imperils make them kind of tempting... and if all global ups included the TDW chain mod boost to keep the meta up with Esther and Zeno - like, instead of trailing far behind it - I could almost consider pulling.

    Can't imagine they'll tack on that 6x chain mod on every DW unit or make it apply universally, though. I can't think of any other way for that chain mod boost to be a game mechanic rather than a "whenever gumi wants" cash cow.

    (Bwargh I just want to use my finishers, there's like no interactivity with the game anymore!)

    Pulled for nagi for graviton canon shenanigans. Got yego. Still pretty fun in arena though. Real easy to max status ailments on them.

    Please check again on Nagi, the builder gave me a full phys build instead of a hybrid, all fixed now. :)

    Esther and Zeno were too good which contributed to these units being mediocre.

    Great review as always. While I like them in the story, I probably wont pull for them. (Just got back to 17000 ::lapis:: and 69 ::3starticket::::4starticket:: from after Easter)

    Nagi with her helmet off looks cute. Yego has a sick sprite because Marlboro hype!

    These are definitely cool sprite units if nothing else, worth it for the art if you draw a couple :)

    There's Bart. Yeah he's not exactly meta until he gets his enhancements, but he's not exactly trash tier either.

    I literally only pulled for Nagi because she's a fox girl. She could pass as a certain Jinchuuriki from the Uzumaki clan. Nagi has the red hair and everything.

    Didn't spend much, first step on the lap got her. Then pulled her on my 9th 4-star ticket (9th? coincidence? I think not!) So she's at 7 stars and replaced Malphasie. She's definitely hitting harder than Malphasie right now. I do also find imperiling light dark to be more useful than dark and wind right now. Imbuing light with Silvie is so fun.

    Still have plenty left in vault for Charlotte

    I wound up getting a single Yego, kinda hoping for another. While it's not 2handed, I do have Bart's whip, and it might be worth getting the last few percents on whip mastery from that 4star unit... I'll admit, since I have Esther it's more for fun, but I'm f2p so I take my fun where I can get it.

    What I find very interesting is the fact that Yego isnt a Breaker/Debuffer seeing that she rides on a Malboro. Giving her huge breaks would have made her much more desirable instead of literally having 3 back to back to back DPS banners. At least Easter banner gave us a crazy Buffer/supporter, but the last 2 banners dont make any type of sense. And they should have released this banner before Akstar/Zeno. This basically is a ass backwards Crimson situation. Shoulda been this banner, Crimson banner, then Akstar banner to make the powercreep at least make some type of sense. Oh well. o_O::rudecat16::

    Unless STMR unlock Trust ability i am afraid that wont even do much on him. Plus he lacks any and all kind of W or T Cast u ll want to Dual Wield on him at best. 2H kinda a no go. Aside from arena maybe.
