    Hello everyone, question is in the title.
    Drew my second copy today and am wondering if she is still worth the investment.
    The only physical dd with more damage I have would be ak rain. For magic my best unit is k. Fina and levinson for hybrid.
    Problem is I'm pretty low on resources and not quite sure about her.

    If you are low on resource, then, no... You already have top unit, AK Rain, Levinson, and... kFina...

    Nah. Ak rain is far better. Easy to play, easy to find friends, easy to build. R lightning is good but not if you have already ak rain.

    One thing she does have is the option to side as a breaker, other then that she won't do more damage than ak rain and also might die faster. Maybe she has nicer chain options if you are not going with a dupe.

    Oh and also she does not have a huge chair in her sprite, that might be a solid reason to invest in her. (Instead it is a horse, not much better, but slightly better)

    Surprisingly, I use R.Lightning a lot.
    She's good for Story Events because of her T1 LB.
    She's good for Raids because of her power/versatility with elemental weapons. I use her to chain AmoE with Machina, capping Regina.
    I used her on trials when she was top DD, nowadays as a dodgevoke breaker.

    She was worth the investment for me. With AKR, K.Fina, and Levinson, you have some of the top DDers. She may not be as worth it.
    If you need a good AmoE/BS/AR chain partner, go for it.

    Thanks for the fast reply guys. I think she is going to sit on the bench for a while. Maybe once my resources look a bit better I'll consider her. She does have nice elements and chains.
    I wasn't sure at first if I could get along with the chair, but now I love it!
    Chairs for everyone! ::haha::

    Rain is better, she’s safe to not upgrade. If you feel the need down there road, go for it.

    I do like R.Lightning a lot.

    but as the game goes forward, I don't think I'll be using her outside of CoV ever again.
    so..... I think I'd build her up on the chamber of experience once the events are done for the week.

    She’s absolutely awesome!!! ( when you need a unit that uses lb filled rnd 1 so if you have a use 3 lb mission with 4 battles you’re guaranteed to have her lb each battle ) like wol bartz or terra or now awol. Other than that wait till you have the resources to spare to 7* her, cheers!

    Enhance her! Put her on your friends list! Add me :D!
    (Sorry, my friend AMOE chainers keep dwindling :( ).

    Seriously though, she's a good unit. Since you don't have the resources, don't worry about it, but she should be on your list for when you do have the resources.
