More Fight Notes (Click to expand)

This fight was brought to you by Konofan banners!

Fight mechanics:

  • 110T fight with about 39M total HP (13HP but full heals twice)

  • BRV damage is reduced by 60% throughout the fight.

  • BRV gain is reduced between 80% and 100% throughout the fight.

General Team Themes to counter the stage:

  • Be very aggressive the first two lives as doing so is not a terrible choice. Just don't delay/BREAK delay/delete it too much as it can become a pain in the buns later. Summon/BT phase are probably best used here.

  • For the last life, prepare your mitigation and defensive options as you need to wait out 10 of it's turns along with a couple recasts and the orb attack before it can die.

    • This is a good place for a counter attacker to widdle down it's HP as the orb ticks down.

  • After each recast and the final orb detonation, it will apply a field effect where it takes your Battery and Healing and makes it it's own which can be very annoying with strong healing abilities and regens slowly healing it back up.
