    A young man atop of a chobobo, who'd lost his parents after a group of monsters attacked their village. That's right, we're talking about Yun and how well he compares in the current Global meta. As usual, leave all comments & questions below. And as usual, enjoy the review.

    Blazing Combo 185% 5 Hits Phys ST + 25% DEF ignore & -30% Fire Resists debuff for 3 turns 30 100 [******]
    Pros:
    Great Passive Support: For a physical attacker, Yun kinda makes that rare case of getting more than what is expected from him. Most physical attackers get a HP/ATK boost. But, Yun gets a extra DEF boost as well which only helps him more survive in his durability. This DEF boost also helps with some skills that I will mention later. But, it's great for Yun who gets a ATK +80%, DEF/HP +30% in total.

    Blazing Combo: Blazing combo being the fire version of some other attacks of this nature. Is the best one out of all of them for a couple reason. 1: It's a fire based attack, which when he gets off the fire debuff the move will do more damage. 2: It has DEF ignore on it for even more damage. Thus making this a very great, and solid move for Yun to use in terms of good and solid damage.

    Store Mechanics: Normally, Store based mechanics aren't considered to be good cause of the extra 50% of damage they take and for a very low boost added to your normal attack modifier by 100%. Yun however takes this and makes it way better cause his boosts are way higher, and without no recoil to him. The extra bonus with this skill is his doubled normal attack chance which I'll discuss later in the review. But, Yun can actually make his normal attack modifier as high as 800% for a two turn charge. Which is pretty great damage
    especially on a normal attack as well.

    Innate Boosted Crit Chance: For Yun, this skill actually helps him alot mainly cause of the store mechanics pro above. Why this is good is cause crits do nothing more but double his damage on his normal attacks. Which if he we're to maybe do a 1 turn charge using his Inferno Rage skill. This if he makes it a crit would make him do a great deal of damage.

    Self
    Efficient: Yun has a great deal of things in his movepool that allow him to support himself in the heat of battle. Yun has Chakra which is a 30% HP/MP heal he can cast whenever he gets low on MP or HP. He has innate immunities to several statuses making him less needed to be tended to by healers/support units he can just for the main part keep doing his job of being a solid physical attacker.

    Raging Chobobo: This skill while it doesn't do anything special besides have a solid modifier of 300% max. It's actually a very quick skill which makes for quick chains, and goes great with finisher type units as they used the accumlated chain buildup with Yun + another unit to deal high damage which helps the teams overall DPS.

    Cons:
    x2 Normal Attacks: You're probably wonder why could this be bad? Well, it's bad cause it ties in wrong with his Store mechanics. The way his and various other Store mechanics work is that they boost the normal attack modifier for 1 normal attack only. By default, he does normal attacks twice which means the second attack won't be boosted and will be its default of 100% mod. This ain't terrible, and you can even argue to say that at least he's getting off chip damage with the second attack as well.

    PvP Arena:
    Yun is pretty solid in PvP Arena actually. However, he doesn't have a innate petrify immunity with his resists which does wound him a little bit. His main good assets would be debuffing enemies with his Blazing Combo move. And following up with his good fire AoE attack. He would be solid overall in PvP Arena.

    Trust Mastery Award:
    Yun's TM is actually really good especially for a unit his nature. It's alright in terms of the stats, and the fire resist. But, what makes the TM really good is the ATK +30% when equipped with a fist item. Which is specific unit cases can be very good. Yun would make a great use of this TM personally but there will be many units to make a good use of this. So, I recommend you farm this TM.

    Comparing to Other Units:

    [​IMG] - Mercedes
    • Yun has a higher total attack boost than Mercedes. 80% on Yun, 70% on Mercedes.
    • Yun has good follow up to his element debuff, while Mercedes does not.
    • Mercedes can provide a bit of team support with a ATK up buff, while Yun is more self supportive.
    Overall Verdict: Yun easily does better than Mercedes really. Yun with his debuff is infact a Fire element attack so the next time he does the move the damage is increased. The problem with Mercedes is that is she doesn't have a good follow up to her elemental debuff which ruins her DPS quite a bit. Yun has that advantage on her which is why she would be better.

    Conclusion:
    Yun is a pretty good, and solid unit and I would urge you all to at least try for him. He adds a very unique attacking dynamic into the game that can fun to experiment with and work out for your own team comps which it's always good to have a good other units that can fulfill other roles. If you wanna exploit a Fire weakness, then Yun is easily a good go to unit to fill that job easily. So, yes pull for Yun. He's good.

    I've heard you say this in several places.... I'm pretty sure thats not how this works. Percentages are just that... percentages. Why would normal attacks be modded by 80%? they aren't. i tested this on chizuru way back in the day. Normal attacks did X total damage, while barrage attacks did .8X on each of the 3 hits.

    Modifiers listed in the unit's ability tables are based off of normal attacks where a normal attack is 1... not .8 of some fictional number.

    I was actually expecting him to be compared to Xiao, given that the previous review for Xiao compared her to Yun. Regardless, I'd be happy to pull Yun! I need more physical attackers to comple an all-out ATK based squad.

    Nice Review as Always but i gotta ask why the comparison is to a 4* based char? How does he compare to the other 5* attackers? Is he Worth pulling for if youre sitting on say Lightning, luneth, gilga, noctis, DKC, Elza etc?

    So far I have him at 800 attack. Pretty fun to use but I need to do a lot of testing once I wake up. Dual wield does turn his normal attack to a very long 4 hit attacks... it's been good at filling up LB bars though in the explorations.

    Your Yun was also a great help for me.

    I was lucky and drew Yun with my 4th ticket (1st was instant rainbow terra -.-). I was planning to take your build as an example to rebuild my tm team.

    Can show screenshot of Yun? Did you use any Str pots on him to hit 800 attack? What's your gear setup?
