Had been looking to upgrade my beloved original Tiki when Kurthnaga returned with his very handy guard breath to compliment her kit.
(will be trying to get her Distant Stance and Ire 4 from M!Corrin to run with Steady Breath seal)
She’s got guard, breath effect, follow-up, follow-up blocking and DC. A very good setup apart from the fact she can’t block follow-ups until someone’s attacked and triggered the smoke.
Now Naga’s here with her Serenity Breath which can do that all the time but costs her guard and, as Null-F just got even more common, guard will likely play a good role in keep her alive as anti-guard skills aren’t as prevalent. Yet.
So my options are:
- Accept the smoke’s limitations and keep the set that otherwise gives everything I want
- Serenity Breath, no guard, keep the rest of her kit
- Serenity Breath but give up the breath effect or DC for Sturdy Stance 3 to keep guard
She’s not for any particular mode, I just use my favourites in this game and she most certainly is one so I’m doing my best to keep her usable in PvE. Any thoughts welcome.
