Having a variety of weapon types on a team gives you those co-ability bonuses. Blade/Strength and Wand/Skill Damage help to increase offense or Axe/Defense and Lance/HP to help with survivability.
Ideally yes, but it has caveats. The only offensive stat buffing co-abilities are blade (strength), wand (Skill Damage), bows (Skill haste) and dagger (Crit rate), so these are the only ones worth really considering when it comes to DPS-race content like Mercurial Gauntlet. If you’re deciding between your first axe user (defense) or a 2nd wand, then their co-ability doesn’t really matter for the Gauntlet and you can just choose based on preference or whoever has the better DPS. Another thing to consider is that different weapons need different materials, so you’re more likely to be able to make both a 5.3 wand and a 5.3 blade compared to two 5.3 blades just from the fact that you generally acquire materials at even pace. Different weapons also can have different ideal Wyrmprint setups, like Axe users generally want Kung Fu Masters/Flower in the Fray which is completely different from other weapons.
Got a Noelle with the free tenfold, I'm REALLY liking that S1. Since my wind-team is severely underpowered anyway shell fit right in. W!Aoi, Maribelle, W!Zania and Noelle will have to do!Addis, meet Daddis. The new characters are in the DPS Sim and Victor outdoes Addis by a decent amount. It turns out having unconditional Bleed on your S1 is really really good and it doesn't matter if the rest of your kit is only OK.
Noelle is right behind him, because she's Elisanne but better and restricted to wind teams. I'm all for the element-specific buffs, be it either on characters or wyrmprints. Give us more of a reason to use on-element characters rather than just stick Elly as a buff bot on every single team.
Haha, I know what you mean. I used my limited tenfold and was excited to see a rainbow summon. Then two axes dropped. Surely they're not both Lin You right? I mean, one might be Ramona, right? Right???
Maybe not Trick or Treasure since Halloween is next month; but I think they'll rerun Dream Big Under the Big Top so players can get a light boost in time for High Zodiark.
Yep, I feel similarly. It’s somewhat anticlimactic.I’m going to be frustrated if we get (Gala) Zethia so soon. I dislike how slowly they add story and how fast they resolve plot points in what they do add; I’m still annoyed we got Alex within a single chapter instead of after a more sensible arc. Zethia feels like something to add way later than this, unless they’re really gonna shake things up with this chapter... and I may not be pleased with that.
