Personally… really depends on each doktah starting point
For beginner, Big names sure is godsend
As we progress, understanding more aspect, more Ops in hands, we tend to look out the niche ones we didn’t have.
Also meta matters most.
People that tend to raise lots of damage dealer may find themselves lacking in niche, and vice versa.
Those Bignames created for a reason I believe, also for the niche ones. Back again, back to each doktah perspective.
Because they got 3 skill, and many of them worth for M6
For flexibility reason.
Unlike 5*,the choice are very limited, unless you’re the waifus type.
Then about friend’s support
Again… back to their own selfishness.
Some like showing off current meta
Some for waifus reason
And there are some for trolling, hahaha.
Nowadays, generalist should be priorities,
big brain doktah or friends support follow along with the seasonal meta.
Relying only some big names made it easier to be skipped, as it is so common.
Better on niche, with seasonal meta rules applied.
That’s what I’m doing currently.
With M3 skill of course, such as…
Suzu, Manticore, Beeswax, Summoner,
pull & push Ops, duelist archetype and
many more, you name it.
Stay curious, keep learning
