    I have just under 40k lapis, and I know her STMR is golden, but how is she as a unit? Worth dumping what I have into her, or just STMR moogle her if/when she randomly drops?

    Well, the name Super Sucky Lightning kinda says it all. I'd say she's probably super sucky.

    She is overall a nice unit with nice utility and her damage is not bad.She can aoe imbue,imperil and buff 15% lightning damage.She also a breaker that can do 90% spr break and have increased break gauge damage for sword and rod.

    I have another question. What about NVAs? Are they any good, good enough to waste some exchange tickets (for which I spent 18k in all four laps, ending with 10k only)?

    yeah, I know, depends on the units u already have and weak spots/gaps in your roster. Since everybody has their own set of units, it would be great if someone provided a short description and overall assessment (spend/hoard).

    You usually give me one of my first 5 laughs of the day. Thanks! ::rofl::

    Cool. So she's good, not great it sound like. Maybe I'll go dailies until the 11th hour and see how I feel. By then I'm sure there will be some on my FL that I can take for a test drive ::up::

    Wish I could help ya, but I'm clueless. Curious tho since I can get both to at least +1

    im just going drop a few tickets on this banners and occasional few dailies, since i dont think i will be able to gear or STMR any of these hyped units well anyway.
    now i am just going to pull for unit that i like regardless of meta and some limited time goodies... and i disliked lightning sprite ever since 2016, that's just me heh....goodluck to all who's pulling

    You will most likely see Lumina in many teams, she has many utilities, some kinda mix between Relm for total eraser skill and LB fill, Rosa for barrage type skill and Yoshikiri with a nice 150% LB buff.
    Add a nice STMR with elemental resist and LB fill, the unit and moogles are free, can’t complain at all on this one ^^

    Nothing spectacular for Radiant Lightning in normal form, some strong skills but locked to lightning, her BS is a mage type, could be a lot more interesting for DV as mage stage are sometimes an issue, still locked to lightning but with bolting strike moves, lightning imperil, stackable for the main one and single target for all, so I guess she could be useful, I’ll definitely use her for that MAG purpose anyway

    OG Lightning is quite the same, could be helpful but very situational, the normal form is meh but BS form may be handy with AoE LB buff 100%, decrease gun resistance 35%, AoE machine killer 100% and machine mitigation 30% in the same turn, niche but to keep in mind... her LB is a nice AoE lightning imbue and 25% amp with ATK MAG buff

    For veterans, both of them should be EX+1able instantly, in the end it’s a pretty good banner for free nice units not to pull on, providing you can get Savior Lightning with tickets or dailies, because checking at JP side, most videos of upcoming trials use her in team comps so she seems almost mandatory starting with her 90% SPR break ^^

    Og lightning becomes a physical version of relm with a better lightning amp and a gun imperil. R lightning is largely forgettable if you have ibara.
    The free unit is ok but relm is still the number one support for magic dv.

    Another reason why SS Lightning can be good is that her damage can be higher than TDW units with 6x cap

    IIRC I watched a video about her explaining her kit, her S/TMR passive is an additional 1x chain cap, equip her with her own STMR and she gets 6x chain cap mod, add on top of that is that she can be a TDH unit, so imagine the damage a unit that has 6x cap along with high variance weapons

    Except for the fact that she cannot equip her Tmr with a 2h weapon.
    So no variance involved there.
    Sorry mate :)

    Which is why you are equipping her STMR on her so you can utilise a 2H weapon, unless of course her own STMR doesn't activate her own S/TMR passive that I am not aware of

    I misunderstood what you wrote then. ;)
    My bad.
    Tbh with you I am not expecting a huge damage from her. She is good because she is versatile but maybe a little overrated.

    I'll pull for her just because I like her sprite and want to use her as a DPS. Guess she likes Rain & Fina's STMR and NV Cloud's STMR.

    Iirc with the black sparky build ,her burst with her lb can be around lassgens but locked to lightning whereas he isnt element locked for dv for example. She needs to use her lb twice though for the higher amp the lb gives.

    Hey, so there's no need to max her LB, right?

    Only damage increases as it is leveled, so I would say no reason.

    I got her from the daily today... How important is her BS form for her? I think the 90% spr break is on that form, right? I don't want to invest Lapis on her, just wanna wait for the shards from those special shop...
