You have to put in a lot of effort and extra turns to get the same result as other Assassins can do as well.
Shout-outs to her asking for 105 stingers/120 dust/36 claws. Except it’s not a shout-out, more like a call-out. Like heck Shiki asks for bones and dust but she comes right after Counterfeit and I’ve literally never had to worry about ST Rider-slaying since.
I didn’t know her NP gen was actually good though… I truthfully never bothered to look into that. Still, -10% crit chance and only Skill Seal seems… kinda meh, honestly, unless I’m missing something? Crit chance is worthwhile for helping to not get Oops Crit’d into danger territory, but those numbers are paltry; Sanzang and HFH make it work because -80% and -50% respectively at base utterly neuter crit chances. Hers is literally L1 Sabotage B+… or, also, L1 Morph (Infiltrate) C. Even disregarding gameplay a bit I’d expect her to not be comparable to Rs here (IMO her S3 might as well effectively also be comparable to e.g. Whim of the Goddess A, and only her S1 is really ‘aight’ by virtue of how justifiably rare NP Seal is on skill or NP, with only comparable cases being Asc/Benkei).
Like I’ve played with Edison and seen him put to good use, but he packs NP/Skill Seal + ATK Down/Crit Chance Down and with higher numbers, it feels like usually just what she’s got wouldn’t quite be enough… though she does have that evade. Maybe I’m just not giving her full package the proper due.
A ‘need buffs on release’ servant that sadly has yet to receive any.
This. And sadly too because I find her design really charming.
To be fair, DoT is helpful on very rare CQ occasions. Very rare, but cases where the Boss has 100% Defense Up or something, the set damage from curse, poison, divinity, etc is useful.
Even for like the Summer Crabs I’d sooner take Kiyo/Serenity/Shuten… as for Demonic Dragon Descends, certainly not her. And that’s passed anyway.
