    Of course I would get her in 2 tickets. Truth be told, I bought the summon out of curiousness and because I like easter, so I got her STMR too. Wished it was so easy to get Cleostar/Akme, because no DV topping for me without her.

    Rating NV Green Sylvie:
    Attack - Base SPR is good enough, NF is there to get some LB crysts and mitigations from 2019. BS is pretty decent, I got more than 4000 SPR easily with only one of her STMR (150%TDW SPR) with a lot of spare materia for killers. And she has that nice 6x mod. Get garanted bonus for the chains in the first two turns (with grandis and LB) and you have pretty consistent very good mods for an attacker that will not die easily! That is not top, but makes trials smooth and have passive and active killers for beasts and humans! And if she is the only the tank, you can break some bar with staffs
    LB - You can`t say they aren`t good. Undispellable 250% buff and 55% mitigation for 5 turns and elemental 85% resistance plus 50% mitigation against beasts and humans! Just... not top for DV and messes rotations a little because mitigation move is 3 turn and cover 4 turns. Plus, not easy to get 2 LBs from start huh?
    Survivability - Didn`t get 30000 HP easily, neither 1000 DEF, but depends of builds (and thinking back, she was 1s and my Faisy 2s, it is expected the difference is not so great). So resembles a little squishier Faisy with more than 4000 SPR and a field, so not too shaby. Elemental department is inferior too, 100% earth plus 50% lightning in BS. If she had wind resistance, I probably would be drooling for her. Nice niches like counter heal and LB fill rate, AOE mitigation for human and beasts, DEF+SPR field and DEF+SPR+stop resistance can make her superior in some fights. No sleep imunity in NF and paralize in BS gives meh vibes but whatever. What bothers me is not having 75% magic mitigation total uptime, but at least she has 75% mitigation without provoking (but she has with provoking too, and 70% inate provoke, so lots of flexibility!). Anda there is that Grandis anti-elemental debuff, very DV oriented!
    Arena - double AOE earth magic, the minimal necessary. Maybe Odin summon is better. She is a hippie girl, don`t expect blood from her
    TMR - very good! feels like Faisy`s, but earth and lighting are more difficult to get!
    STMR - Had it been 25% TDW SPR, it would be meh! 50% is bonkers for its duty! (however limited her duty is)
    Vision Card- even for her is skipable if you have two of her STMRs, and only 20% HP bonus? Good?
    DV - If rummors are true and for once we will need tanks in DV, what is better? Snow with more mitigation but without 6x chain mod, no easy provoking, needing someone to chain for him, with fixed element and difficult LB passive capping or Melia, with 200% active killers for two common species, elemental buff and passives, lightning and earth imbuing and amplifying, easier provoke, very good chaining for others to cap, elemental debuff dispel? None! Because Beatrix is on the way! But maybe it could depend of the killers...
    Should you have? Yes, for STMR and niche fights
    Should you pull? No, unless weak in the elemental resistance department. Beatrix is coming

    Melia seems a modern tank. It bothers me she don`t have many specific mitigations, but generally this is taken care by support in trials (so her and Ignis/epi nichol for me?). That is the reason why I prefer her over Snow, he is not so good with elements. This and maybe the break moves. But all in all she is probably skippable for many despite being good flavor

    Already got everything interesting from this banner, despite the fact that i didn't start the game today.
    Nice sprite though and not a bad tank at all. Got faised out of interest though.

    As usual when hoarding, I threw the couple tickets I had sitting around at the new banner. A red crystal dropped, but it was another NV Edel. Second ticket got me my fourth Esther though! I missed out on her in her heyday, though always found use for a pair of Storm Kickers. Maybe with her update I'll get to take her for a spin or two!

    Is the real question - should we pull her in preparation for XWQL NVA?

    Just got 2 melia from one 10+1 pull.

    Don't really know what to use her for... I already used Fina&Daisy to do all the dirty works.
