You can flag the post all you want, it’s still not going to change that you were wrong and Bunyan is quicker. I’ll reword the post a bit, and I did do some tests when I was Ember farming.
I use both in my farming team, so it’s pretty clear who takes up more time, and that’s Arash.
I ran a few runs and took an average, certainly not scientific but it was enough. The times were recorded from the start of the black background (indicating an introduction to the NP animation) and the exact frame we see the map again. This is all on 2x speed.
Paul’s NP averaged at about 4.85 sec per use, and Arash’s NP averaged at 5.11 sec.
I can’t help any loading variations but I did try to ensure nothing but the emulator was open.
The time difference is extremely marginal, but where speed really matters is after the NP: Arash dies. Even if you use Guts, the animation for that itself will take up time that’s not spent on Bunyan. And of course, if Arash dies, even if you tap, that’s a couple seconds wasted.
So yes, both technically and practically, Bunyan’s NP provides a quicker execution than Arash’s.
