Wood gets another triple dong, but how good is she? She’s merely good. I was going to detail all the specifics of why I think so, but the reasoning wasn’t all that compelling as one truth seemed to overshadow everything: she’s a 7-star; on the order of Bikinitron or Santa Sakuya rarity. Unless she has a base form or a way to switch between them — please say there is — you aren’t even guaranteed to get the form you want if you roll one. It didn’t seem worth the effort considering very few will even get her, especially when Verdandi and Liu Bei are better leaders and subs respectively and much “easier” to obtain.
Despite that, there’s still a lot of upside. She addresses her original’s biggest deficiency, packing a whopping 653 RCV. While this could be expected of her healer form, she now has the highest RCV of any attacker, including healer/attackers. The dongs supply the flash, but this RCV could be the underlying reason why she’s great as both a leader and sub. The dongs also distract from the fact that she could be a great wood row leader; her original was already adept at doing so, now she can take advantage of being wood main too. The skill bind resist should not be overlooked, either, as those awakenings are important in the late to end game.
Now to wait and see if NA gets this REM. It seems to be likely as there shouldn’t be any licensing issues, but we don’t know the full contents of the REM yet. And with GungHo, you never really know anyways.
