    A silent warrior atop a chocobo who donned a curious piece of armor. Yun lost his parents during infancy after monsters viciously attacked his village, leaving nothing but death in their wake save for a single chocobo. Yun befriended the feathery creature, and they eventually left together on a journey around the world. The experience he gained through their rigorous journey helped him to develop unique battle abilities which he vowed to use to destroy the monsters that took the lives of those dearest to him. He is said to have continued his crusade against monsters until an illness claimed his life.
    One year earlier we got him and his TMR at that time was absolutely amazing. How is he now once we get his enhancements?

    Pre-Enhancements:
    Yun
    got released pretty much one year ago, which means he's been here in the game for a very long time!

    When we first got Yun, his base stats were amazing. 184 ATK was above the average while also having innate 80% ATK innately with his TMR that also grants 30% ATK, he reached super high ATK. IIrc something around 938 ATK, which was one of the best ATK stats back then. However, he needed Dual Wield, which many didn't have yet.

    Yun, when having Dual Wield equipped, was one of the strongest if not the strongest damage dealers until Orlandeau. He had decent chain capabilities, a massive DEF break with his Limit Burst and good stats. Innate 30% fire resistance also made him a great choice for e.g. the Ifrit raid. With beast killer some even used him for Dark Espers with a lot of success.

    He had no chain partners and both chains break in between, which was a huge drop for Yun compared to followed units that started to have perfect chains!

    Over the time however, as most very old units, powercreep completely demolished him. Orlandeau already outscaled Yun by a lot. Then we got Fryevia one week later and so on. Yun became very bad very fast after a short amount of time after we got Orlandeau. Nowadays, without enhancements, Yun is pretty much not viable anymore.


    Post-Enhancements:
    Once you fully enhanced him, Yun has many various and cool things to show off!

    Of course over the time his defensive stats became pretty meh compared to many other current damage dealers. While of course his attack also suffered.
    Luckily, they fixed both of these issues for the most part with Yun.
    His survivability gets a lot better due to now gained 20% phys dodge and 60% chance to ignore 2 fatal attacks over 30% HP with No Pressure Friend +2. While Yun also gains a lot more ATK due to his new innate DW and +30% (total 110%) with Two-Hit Combo +2. This overall makes him way better again only in that aspect.

    However, Yun's offensive moves were still very lackluster. Chains that break alongside low modifiers and super weak imperils. Well, guess what, this is not a problem. Not anymore!
    With Raging Bird +2 and Blazing Combo +2 Yun has now access to strong chains. Well, Raging Bird +2 only is good if you have no ATK buffer in your party because of the self 120% ATK buff. This perfectly chains with Setzer, so in case you won't have the next option available, this will be very handy for you...

    But Blazing Combo +2 is amazing. It's an 8-Hit move with a 600% modifier with innate fire damage! Oh and of course a 50% fire imperil on top of it. This fixes everything Yun needed. Because his weapon selection does not really support fire weapons, his hit count ruined the chain and now he even has a chain partner.
    This said chain partner is Nyx! They can perfectly chain together and both are fire chainers, both have innate Dual Wield, perfect for beginners to experienced players.

    Outside of the enhanced things, Yun still has a good ATK stat (the same as Tidus), status ailment protection, high HP and decent DEF and of course his Beast Killer. Yun truly is a powerhouse now. Let's find out how he fares against other units in a second.


    Best In Slot:
    Yun actually has something that favours him for many players that don't farm TMRs. His BiS includes a lot of free gear. If you include ADV 5 as free, his BiS ATK is completely no TMRs and both weapons he wields are "free" as well. Also you can exchange one 30% ATK materia, add his own TMR so you get a Killer Materia while maintaining 300% ATK.
    Aigaion Arm (145 ATK)
    Mace of Zeus (110 ATK)
    Prishe's Hairpin (45 ATK)
    Training Clothes (20 ATK)
    2x Champion Belt (60 ATK, 40% ATK)
    Martial Arts Mastery (50% ATK)
    ADV 5 (40% ATK)
    2x various 30% ATK materias

    ATK with Bahamut:
    1180




    Enhanced Yun [​IMG] VS [​IMG] Enhanced Orlandeau
    • Orlandeau has higher base ATK
    • Yun has better survivability
    • Yun has innate 20% phys dodge
    • Both have status ailment protection
    • Yun has innate Dualwield
    • Yun's base modifiers are higher
    • Yun has innate element on his chain move
    • Orlandeau has 5 turn 45% ATK/MAG breaks
    • Yun has higher hit counts
    • Both have chain partners
    • Yun has 50% beast killer
    Let's just jump into DA MATHS.
    (assuming spark chains)
    1180 (1070 LH | 1035 RH)
    Post 100% ATK buff: 1254 | 1219

    Average Chain Modifier:
    3.31

    Turn 1: 1219 x 6 x 3,31 + 1254^2 x 6 x 4 x 1.5 = 86,121,761 (Blazing Combo +2)
    Turn 2: 1219 x 6 x 3,31 x 1.5 + 1254^2 x 6 x 4 x 1.5 = 100,877,354 (Blazing Combo +2)
    (assuming spark chains)
    BiS: 1175 ATK
    ATK with 100% ATK buff: 1364
    Left Hand: 1229 | Right Hand: 1244

    Average Chain Modifier:
    3,14

    Turn 1: 1229^2 x 5.2 x 3.14 + 1244^2 x 5.2 x 4 x 1.5 = 72,945,604
    Turn 2: 1229^2 x 5.2 x 3.14 x 1.5 + 1244^2 x 5.2 x 4 x 1.5 = 85,276,844
    Yun wins.




    Enhanced Yun [​IMG] VS [​IMG] Enhanced Aileen
    • Aileen has higher base ATK
    • Yun has better survivability
    • Yun has 20% phys dodge
    • Both have innate status ailment protection
    • Aileen has insane equipment selection
    • Yun has innate DW
    • Yun has higher base modifier
    • Aileen has higher imperils (75% earth imperil)
    • Yun has higher hits and doesn't move
    • Yun has 50% beast killer
    • Aileen has 75% stone/machine killer
    Off to the maths!
    (not assuming spark chains)
    BiS: 1203 ATK
    ATK with 100% ATK buff: 1392

    Left Hand: 1247 | Right Hand: 1257

    Average Chain Modifier:
    2,82

    Dual Wield:
    Turn 1: 1247^2 x 5.0 x 2.82 + 1257^2 x 5.0 x 4 x 1.75 = 77,227,342 (Piledriver +2)
    Turn 2: 1247^2 x 5.0 x 2.82 x 1.75 + 1257^2 x 5.0 x 4 x 1.75 = 93,671,562 (Piledriver +2)

    Fixed Dice:
    Turn 1: 1172^2 x 2.4 x 1.15 x 3.85 = 14,595,703
    Turn 2: 1172^2 x 5.0 x 2.82 x 3.85 (x 1.75) = 74,565,007 (first Aileen) | 130,488,763 (second Aileen)
    Turn 3: 1172^2 x 5.0 x 2.82 x 3.85 x 1.75 = 130,488,763
    Turn 4: 1172^2 x 5.0 x 2.82 x 3.85 x 1.75 = 130,488,763
    Turn 5: 1172^2 x 5.0 x 2.82 x 3.85 x 1.75 = 130,488,763

    Average DPS: 101,717,775
    Yun wins against Dual Wield Aileen, but loses against TDH FD Aileen.


    Recommendation:
    Run Friend Run
    : Not only a reference to Forest Gump (most likely), but it makes him a lot more resistant against enemy nukes and adds physical dodges. If you never felt like you need more tankyness, especially due to his innate 30% HP/DEF, you can skip it. Uses a cheap amount of guard mats, so you might wanna enhance this.

    Two-Hit Combo: 30% ATK and innate Dualwield, no matter how you use Yun, this will be a must enhance! Uses Tech crysts and pretty cheap once again, there is no reason to skip this.

    Raging Bird: 100% more modifier, changed frames that chain with Setzer's Red Card and a self 120% ATK buffer. This isn't really what you will utilise with Yun if you have Nyx in your asset of units. It's using support crystals in a decent amount so if you have Nyx, skip this. If not, you might wanna enhance it.

    Blazing Combo: Gaining almost double the modifier with a higher imperil, more hits and the addition of a new chaining partner to that, this is a 100% enhance. Being able to chain with Nyx means that you combine two innate DW fire chainers that can be used together in 10 man trials as well. 100% enhance this. However, this enhancement uses Power crysts and this with the highest cost!


    Conclusion:
    Yun's
    enhancements made him come back into the meta. Which is a great thing.
    He will most likely gain a lot of importance in trials simply because Nyx finally has a chain partner. Which makes it more appealing to use Yun friends etc., while also giving Nyx some love to his chaining role.
    Nyx in the future will focus way more on his chaining capabilities instead of his finishing ones, so this aspect will only get better over the time.
    Yun became very strong, outdamaging the DW top dogs except for A2 and being super easy to gear for everybody.
    If you have him and want to use him: enhance him.

    Character Design:
    8.5/10
    Sprite: 9.5/10
    Chainer: 9/10
    Trust Master Reward: 8/10 (not as relevant anymore)
    Arena: 2/10
    Limit Burst: 4/10
    Future Proof: 8/10
    Free 2 Play: 9.5/10
    Pay 2 Play: 8.5-9/10
    Personal Rating: 9/10
    Optimal Rating: 9/10

    Wanna support me?
    I put a lot of effort into it!
    Everything helps

    My Patreon

    This is it my friends! I will skip the other enhancements because they don't do as much as they do for Yun. Olive is pretty good, but with the introduction of enhanced Cupid Artemios and Ang she feels pretty weak COMPARED to them. While Cupid Artemios only gains damage and is a super boring review. I still hope you enjoyed this!

    Nice review :)

    I would also add to the review that you can give him a 50% killer materia (with his DW build) without loosing the 300% Atk bonus from his equipment/meteria wich can be a huge bonus if needed.

    How could you say that its his BiS build without including his own TMR...

    Also would be great of you mention second chaining partner for Yun's Raging bird +1 (or +2) - Setzer with red card, exact same frames

    This might be a stupid question but would it be worth replacing my onion knight with him with his new enhancements? I guess I have grown fond of the onion lol

    In fights with no fire resist, yeah.

    Edit: Let's also add 10 man trials (if you have Nyx/Setzer), reduced team comps where you can't fit a dedicated imperil unit, and fights were you don't need to swap elements during hte fight.

    You should just say with it I would go over the cap, but if you switch one 30% atk materia to a killer materia and switch training clothes to his TMR, than he would deal more damage, but its not bis this way, so yeah your build is BiS.

    Also Yun and Setzer would be nice against sheratan? Not everyone have a Yun and Nyx.

    @Memel0rd

    So Aileen FD does 1.17xxxx million and Yun 1.08xxxx million? That's pretty good. Especially since you could conceivable squeeze out 1/6 more damage from that calculations shown if you use an external 75% fire imperil. Which isn't common, but it is out there in a couple places.

    Yes, Yun is an excellent choice if you couple him with Ang. Yun for Ang's first LB has a 50% imperil, Ang has a 50% DEF/SPR break before that and afterwards a 74% fire imperil for both.

    Yun is such an awesome unit, I will hard pull on this banner because I LOVE all the units, both for the kit and for the sprite (and because I already got Chow... searching for Yan... didn't get Yan btw...).
