    Does he lose the ATK penalty by toggling S2?

    It's hard to say since the game doesn't display damage numbers outside of crits/bonus dmg skill procs (and I haven't taken the time to watch videos of him attacking the same target in slow mo) but he does has 2 different attack animations, the hawk command one which is ranged and one where he uses his sword cane to attack.

    I haven't actually tested his 2nd skill because so far it's been unnecessary but i'm guessing that he retains the ability to ranged attack drones that enter his range if he's not preoccupied with other enemies but otherwise with his range reduced to only the 3 squares to his front and sides he will attack ground enemies with his melee swing. I think the game will adjust his damage accordingly, since the description of ranged capable guards simply says "can launch ranged attacks", not that all of their attacks are ranged (and therefore penalized), if that makes any sense.

    Sort of? In that he can only attack adjacent spaces with that turned on. It's a toggle basically though. I unlocked the second support slot so he's in mine to play with. His S3 makes all his attacks "melee" and gives him increased range and multi-target (and glass cannon stats - he gives up his high defense to more than double his attack during it).

    He doesn't have ranged attacks in the guard stance. Just gets extra defense and regenerates his own HP.

    It's S3 where he becomes an AoE monster with a 3-range 180% arc and

    Looking closer, I think the only things that pure shit is good for are costumes and stamina refreshes (outside of converting to loose shit), and looking at some of the costumes, Texas is the one that most appeals to me, so I pulled on both of the 6k banners for that sweet sweet 5*. Picked up Ejfyila (I have no idea how to spell this), Vigna, Nearl, and Cuora, so I'm pretty happy with that.

    The guide video for Annihilation says 700+ defense, but shows Beagle, who never tops 490, do they mean defense + healers attack?

    Upgraded Projekt Red to Elite 1, level 25, bumped her skill up to level 5, and that was enough of a bump in attack to get 400/400 on Chernobog.

    Projekt Red is a very fun "I want this person to die now" button.

    I think she's basically the best unit for that? Cheap, fast redeploy, high power. Gravel is the blocking equivalent, but much easier to get.

    I'm not sure if I should have, but I did a bunch of rushed recruitment to pop out some units and potential some peeps up. That was fun. I was torn between a guaranteed 4-5* pull or a robot tag.

    Eh, rushing em's fine. The only thing to be sure of I think is that you have enough stock to do 3/day (if you want those daily points - there's plenty of other sources of em)

    Updated Supports. Skyfire (AoE Mage)/Eyjafjalla (Mage)/Saria (Defender/Healer).

    Still trying to go wide with my units before I go super deep into one-two of them. Getting more Elite 1 and leveled decently (lvl40+/etc). Then once I'm happy there I'll have to decide who to push for Elite 2 first.

    Siege, SilverAsh, and Eyjafjalla all seem like amazing options to focus on first which makes the decision hard.

    So this has caught my interest, but haven't seen much in the way comments on the following.
    -How casual friendly is this game? I've the point in GFL, where I do need a break from the gameplay loop from time to time. Can only do some farm maps so much before I need a break. That said, I still intend to keep GFL as my main gacha game, so I want something that I can still reasonable up to date in with casual play.
    -How free to play friendly is this?
    -If you miss a gacha or event related unit, do they cycle non-collab ones back in so that people can get them later or are those units just gone? This is going to be a make or break thing for me. I'm not interested in supporting games that have a model where you get screwed out of units because you took a break from the game. Only exception I make for this is collab stuff because IP stuff can get complicated and ugly fast.
    -Is there PvP? If yes, is it completely optional? I'm not a fan of PvP and I'm not interested in a game where it's essentially required, even if the devs claim it's not.

    It's pretty casual if you want it to be. You can autofarm stuff, or just do whatever.

    It's very free to play friendly. Most maps have guides on how to do stuff with free only units, and they throw a ton of free stuff at you.

    Currently you can absolutely miss out on units forever based on what China has seen. They'll probably rotate back in, but it's in terms of years.

    No PvP.

    What is this I don't even.

    Note for those who are getting deep into base development but finding they don't have a wide enough roster to staff well: Level all of your units. 2*s tend to get an improvement to their base job at max level.

    2*s don't Elite at all. They just unlock a combat and base passive each at lvl30.

    They're also incredibly useful, low-cost units for minimal investment.

    Hell, two of them have 50% dodge.

    Side note. I am very confused why the localized spelling of 能天使 is "Exusiai" when the audio/pronunciation of the character's name is literally

    eVG70Ep.jpg

    But I looked it up and they chose an alternate romanized Greek spelling (vs Exousia).

    Cool facts. She shares the name of one of the coolest Gundams in existence.

    On the one hand I’ve gotten my insured 5+* unit on each of the new banners in only 2 draws.

    On the downside it was Cliffheart, which I’m getting for free tommorow.

    And Blue Poison, which is annoying after slamming Kroos and Catapult up in level to be my budget snipers.

    Kroos will remain good. Blue Poison is more about murdering armored dudes anyway. And you'll still need budget units for stuff.

    Saria is super good, holy crap. And SilverAsh being able to switch between DPS and Defense was super handy and ridiculous. I think I should have replaced Eyjafjalla with a Sniper like Meteor though, as her lack of extra side range lead to her not hitting anything for part of the fight.

    Yeah I’m mostly just stuck right now on getting chips and stuff for elite promos and trying to settle on a vague team.

    The chip missions are real tough to 3 star.

    On the plus side at this point I could buy Texas from the credit store and between her, Siege and Zima I’d literally have the 3 best vanguards in the game so maybe I should do something with that.

    Now debating whether I want to keep trying for SilverAsh while his banner is up or save for a banner where Eyjafjalla is featured. Silver Ash looks cool as fuck but my best mage is still Gitano, I have yet to pull a 5* mage.

    I feel like I may have taken "don't dump everything into leveling one person, spread it out" too far. I have like half my roster at 20, and I keep running out of the exp potato chips.
