    Another rough Guild Wars opponent. I'm starting to get really tired of running into Summertime Iseria in PVP. Whenever I use her against others she's not nearly as effective as she is against me. I wish I could see the gear my opponents are using for her, so I can get some idea how to build her to be more effective.

    Also does anyone else run into the issue in PVP where enemies with Counter Attack, seems to counter 90% of the time, instead of the 30% it's supposed to be, while your own characters only seem to counter attack 10% of the time. Rather frustrating. I especially seem to run into that with Violet countering me.

    Glad to see the guild getting more active again.

    Right side counterattack gets a buff. It is known. ;)

    But yeah, counter always feels like it works better for the enemy than for you, just like resist and follow-up attacks. It's just RNG messing with you though.

    As for Iseria, she's a pain because she's always paired with a super fast Ran or Piera who's using Silver Rain. I can't compete with those speeds so I try to pick some other defense team. At least most of the Hwayoung teams rely on her so Yulha does a good job ending that little threat.

    Does she? Guess I'll have to build her up then.

  • ShadowfireShadowfire Vermont, in the middle of nowhereRegistered User regular
    Ooh yeah. Put her in the free Health set pieces and Hwayoung will attack her every time, but almost never kill her. Then proceed to delete one unit of your choice.

    Yulha is a really nice hwa counter in Arena atleast. But you need +30 proof to be safe.

  • Trajan45Trajan45 Registered User regular
    Use HP% boots, you can get 30-32k HP which will survive most HWA's by itself. Unless they are doing the Coq + Piera (or other attack buffer). I have Holy Sac on her so I can use her to delete a different unit and keep HWA busy for a few more turns.

    Holy Sacrifice is just mean on her. That's why I use it.

  • Jubal77Jubal77 Registered User regular
    Yeah holy sac or proof is the safe route. If you do not want to invest into Yulha you could do blue coli as well who scales into even whale territory to just kill Hwa before she goes. You have a chance of 15% that route but you do in almost all circumstances outside of yulha so /shrug. It is the safest other route. Hwa hasnt been a problem for a long while. It is apoc ravis and now Chouxs.... and of course all the 100% counter Merus.

    Grass Hwayoung is here!



    Also we're getting a free ML5 selector, which is pretty cool.

    Arunka is finally here!

    Also I know that people want to make that statement but she will actually need HP and Def on gear so cant just swap the Hwa gear over heh.

    That said....

    ML Ara time Shadow! Edit: Wait it looks like she will be in coin shop so I can get someone else like Belain or ML Celine.

    ML Celine is a ton of fun. She's very feast or famine though. I feel like she either dies immediately, or she solos the entire enemy team.

    We got lucky in this start of the season for GW and made it into top 100!

    We then got destroyed by Mango7s primary guild. But I killed Mango 7s comp and one of the main towers so I beat a top 50 main tower! :) The leads were all like 320 speed so I just T2 them as it was piera comp on one and the other ml lilias. So dj basar on one and ldoms on the other and they died. Easymode.

    This ML "selector" is funny. I wonder how much reddit is whining about not just giving a selector but making it a fun little mini game instead.

    Edit: Also it may just be a bug i guess but reports are that upper end hp dmg of Hwa was only really affected by like a few % points so they may have just nerfed her properly for low hp units but still can do what she needs to with high hp.

    Edit2: Yeah if you can get her HP down (the new sets are going to be key here) then she will still one shot hp sponges unless ultra protected. It looks like they actually nerfed her properly but you wouldnt know that looking online lol.

    Yep, reading some early reports, her S3 still kicks if they are a high HP bruiser or tank. Which was what her role was supposed to be to start. Not sure she needed the S3 CD increase since they removed her other stuff, but she should still be a good tank buster unit.

    I think I might go Ameru for my ML selection. She was just in the coin shop (only had 30 coins, now I have 60), so she's probably not coming back anytime soon. MLCeline or Riolet would be my other options.

    Yeah I am still eyeballing ML Celine but I also do not have Ruele or Belain so those would probably be better options for how my comps work. But if Hwas top end dmg is still good perhaps not heh. Riolet is live or die but those 250+ riolets that can still near one shot things are crazy heh. Ameru ive had since she came out and she is great. I want to regear mine out for one of those dmg tanky ones i see from time to time but dont have the gear for it. Those are a pain int he ass even if she isnt turning any off the constant aoes heh.

    Edit. OMG I FORGOT ABOUT BACKGROUND BATTLE. ITS THE FUTURE!

    At 8:00 and a few seconds last night ML Ara is now mine. Yay. Now on to the head scratcher of what to get for the free ml5.

    I'm thinking of getting Martial Artist Ken for my free ML 5 Star. Either him or maybe ML Lilias, or ML Ara. I've gotten a bit lucky lately with ML characters with the free event draws. Got Sage Vivian today with the 7 day Arky event reward, and Inferno Khawazu yesterday from my free 10 pull. Neither of which I had before.

    Can't go wrong with ML Lilias. I use her everywhere, from Hall of Trials, Ancient Inheritance, Arena, GW, and even random story missions.

    The ML5*s I'm missing
    Astromancer Elena (not available)
    Commander Pavel (not available)
    DJB (I could pick him from the coin shop today I guess)
    SsVivian
    Archdemon Shadow
    Pirate Captain Flan
    Straze
    Top Model Luluca
    Spectre Tenebria

    I'm leaning towards Flan because she's silly and I enjoy her S3, but I've also had a hard time making use of bombs in general so.. I dunno.

    And I know Straze has a lot of uses in different comps but I fucking hate him.

    Flan since she steals a buff at 75% is SOOOO much more fun. Throw unseen observer on your seaseria and throw seaseria arti on your flan. We are up against a top 100 guild right now and I got a "win" on my defense of ran/seaseria/mlflan.... I lost but what looks to have happened is that my ML flan and opposing riolet was last standing and S1'd the Riolet putting the bomb up. Due to E7 ordering Riolet most likely full stacked S3d into my Ml Flan but then proceeded to get exploded. Fun times. I have yolod against many chars with immunity up and won every time so far heh. Steal immunity. Put bomb. Esplode it. You want speedy gear with eff on it though. Mine is 230 with 4k attack and 200 eff. And she just works. I still get Destinas that laugh at her but I think that is just losing the 50/50s i dont think ive come across 300+ eff res destinas yet.

    That said I use DJB ALL the time since he is basically a hard counter to Piera on D if you have the speed gear for him. I use him and Ldoms soooo much since people still leave piera and clilias as sole speed lead on teams and ive beat top 50 defenses with those two.

    I mean im still capped at 280 or so... so i feel ya heh. You just have to be faster than the follow up. My DJ is 250 and he works. Sometimes I run across an opposing ML Celine or the like faster as the follow up but not all that often heh.

  • ShadowfireShadowfire Vermont, in the middle of nowhereRegistered User regular
    My fastest is 245. I haven't gotten a right side piece over 12 speed, and my left side I think tops at 16.

    Well like always adjust to your goals and where you are at right? At 250 he probably is still too fast for 99% of the play ive just been getting miid range rolls of speed and nothing to bump up my cap for a long time now so i have a bunch at mid 200s. But this is also my only gacha heh.

    Depending on comp you might not need him much faster than 200 for follow up. Piera does tend to be with casino comps too.

    Also yeah just pick who you want to have fun with heh. ML Flan is really fun and with her 30% dmg to front she has much more survive.

    I've honestly just been changing who I'm gearing instead. I'm never going to get my speed to the stratosphere, so getting a good counter Dilibeth going has been a really nice bonus. She's not top of the line, but she's close enough to do some real damage.

    And that S3 is still the funniest damn thing in the game.

    Tons of great options there. S.Tene is S tier still, tons of uses. DJB is fantastic, use him a lot against FCC and Piera. TML just got a buff and I’m using her quite a bit more (though speed gear might limit you here). And Straze is used in 1-shot teams and with the hwa nerf is back to the main tank buster.

    Forgot to mention, another one I've been having a lot of fun with is Choux. I always liked her, but after her rebalance she's kind of a quiet 6* base. Really damn good.

    Also Zahhak is stacked.

    Choux is Charles 2.0 heh. She will single handedly destroy your team. She also follows Charles by critting green often heh. Her artifact too is much higher than 20% on defense as ive emptied an entire speed team into her without a crit. She is fun to use though if she works for your but you know she never seems to.

    Riolet is also veeeeery good after the buff. If you have ervalen arti and a good enough lifesteal set for him.

  • Trajan45Trajan45 Registered User regular
    I'm still debating between Riolet and ADS for my ML5*. I'm leaning ADS since she fits my play style more. I wish Riolet was Light element, if so I'd probably pull him. But right now all my ST high DPS units other than W. Schuri are dark which with CLilias can be tricky.

    I had Riolet ungeared until a day ago really. I geared him because I havent used any of my lifesteal units outside of Violet in awhile so I distilled them down to Riolet. He is still very much live or die by. But he feels so much more dangerous now.

  • ShadowfireShadowfire Vermont, in the middle of nowhereRegistered User regular
    Spirit Eye Celine has a decent set of lifesteal gear that I'll only ever remove if I get upgrades. She's too much fun.

    I'll get ML Celine or LQC. Still haven't decided if I want a bruiser or a whatever ML Celine is. She seems insanely busted whenever I face her.

  • Trajan45Trajan45 Registered User regular
    edited November 3
    She can be in the right comps. A Ras has made her even tougher since once you get her past HP point 1, she gets a massive shield. Likewise pairing her with Belian, removes a ton of units 'attack again' options that are used to counter her. She's not impossible, but defiantly a frustrating unit to go against, especially if geared well. The ones with 220-230 speed are really annoying.

    EDIT: Personally I wouldn't go for LQC unless your a collector and she's the last unit. I haven't used her in ages as she can't do her main job of dark bruiser killer. Now she may get another buff, so who knows.

    I use her to pop all sorts of teams. Not for ARavi because she's still busted, but you can bring her to wreck Straze or CZerato and watch the overdamage last waste to the entire team.

  • Trajan45Trajan45 Registered User regular
    For sure, but you can do the same with all sorts of units. Ervalen has been getting all sorts of work these days doing that exact thing. If the question was to build her, sure, might be fun. But using our 2nd ML selector event ever to grab her, is probably a bad choice, when so many other good units are in that pool. Of course, if you love the character and art and that trumps use, go for it, main point is having fun.
