I haven’t really been keeping up with the PAD meta lately due to Christmas stuff, so I’m going to keep this one very short. Which is somewhat unfortunate because there were many juicy changes
Promotions and Additions
- Lakshmi – That was a brief demotion. She obviously belongs here now. Now the question is whether Awoken Shiva is as good as Lakshmi or even Parvati now (hint: nope).
- Parvati – I still think she’s inferior to Lakshmi, but I do think she’s better than the A-tier so I’m fine with her at A+ for now.
- Astaroth – I still prefer Raoh — the haste makes all the difference — but at least now she’s worthy of awoken status. They could’ve just avoided the salt if they just released her like this in the first place.
- Goemon – I’m convinced this is a running joke now. Just like the entire A-tier.
- Rinshia – I remember that Volsung debuted at A. Rinshia is probably a better leader, but I expect her to fade just the same. I can’t imagine skilling up multiples of her is a pleasant process.
Demotions and Removals
- Typhon – No complaints, the team is just too orb-hungry which leaves little room for utility.
- Juggler – The harbinger of doom is finally laid to rest. This was a long time coming.
- HKali and LKali – The Kalis are finally removed and the list is a lot better for it. Levi looks a bit suspect at A+ now. So does Vegito. And Shiva.
- Gon, Ilm, Cloud and Scarlet: If you’re going to punish farming leads then I don’t understand why Goemon was added back in and also why Shiva Dragon wasn’t downgraded.
- Kanna – The Apoc team is good, but there seems little reason to run it with Saria-Thor being a thing.
I have no idea why this ugly thing shot up to S, but I guess it must be pretty game breaking. Maybe something to do with coop? On Ra Dragon? Sorry guys, way too lazy right now to do any research myself. I guess if they value delays this much then it could help explain why Cao Cao and Okuninushi are also S-tier.
They also failed to removed him from the A-tier, meaning they couldn’t be assed to come up with a replacement for their musical chairs.
