First of all, this thread is not meant to start some elaborate discussion or fight about how good/bad/underwhelming her refine is. All I’ll say on that point is that I’ve been running her for years with a non-upgraded lightning breath, and I will certainly be running her with a better lightning breath.
That out of the way… Nowi is great!
She was the first character in the game that I really felt was strong when I first started playing and did all the legwork for me when I was just learning the ropes. She was the first one I got to +10, the one who got the most points and did the most work on my way to Tier 20 in arena, was still in my core when I first got to Tier 21 not that long ago, and she did the heavy lifting on my way into AR 21.
I understand that she’s not the individual strongest character in the game. Her stats are arguably too well rounded and dragons have a bad time against a lot of things. I get that she is a Gen 1 that didn’t get a broken refine to vault her to Tier 1.
But for all that, she is still my favorite character to use in the game and I think her voice lines and art for both versions are great. I think her stats are good enough to do what you want and are decent enough all around to make all sorts of builds. And she’s adorable.
TL;DR - Nowi rocks, she has been my MVP for 3 years, and it’s about time she got her refine.
